Friday Favourites: Autumn Edition

October is approaching and it's safe to say I'm swiftly slipping into the Autumnal mood. Tan, burgundy, navy and teal - all lovely rich colours that I can't wait to incorporate into my wardrobe and make-up palette. I'm having a manicure this afternoon and definitely feeling a dark red or green! So without further a do, here are my must-haves to get you through the Autumn season.

£65, Oliviaburton.com
Nothing screams out Autumn more than this beautiful Olivia Burton timepiece. The gorgeous neutral tone florals and tan leather strap make this watch the perfect Autumn accessory.

Top London locations for a manicure

Manicures make me feel so much nicer and girly for every day life so I like to have one every 2-3 weeks. Here are my favourite places to go in London.

Cowshed - Foubert's place, Soho http://www.cowshedonline.com/
Cowshed focuses on luxury and comfort. Your sat in a plush cushioned sofa seat with your arms resting on a giant cushion that's placed on your lap. I always go for the Cowshed Manicure that comes with exfoliation and an arm/hand massage. And the varnish won't chip for a good whole week! Would definitely recommend Cowshed, and they're based all over the country so you don't have to be in London.

Cowshed Manicure £42

W Hotel - Leicester Square http://www.awayspalondon.com/
The W Hotel is beautiful and located just outside Chinatown/Piccadilly/Leicester Square. Take your mum or best friend with you and you can have a mani next to each other. Beauty therapists are friendly, experienced and approachable.

55 minutes for £50

Nails & Brows - Mayfair http://nailsandbrows.me/
Nails & Brows is a small but clean/luxury nail salon located in Mayfair. Staff specialise in nail art so if that's what you're into then I'd strongly recommend! I'm not such a fan of printed nails so I went for subtle polka dot thumbs which were really cute.

Signature Manicure £48


Corinthia Hotel - Embankment http://www.espalifeatcorinthia.com/
If you're looking for pure luxury then the ESPA life at Corinthia is perfect for you. It's pricey but the Corinthia is a 5 star hotel and will leave you with long lasting results. "Repair, replenish and condition".

Advanced Manicure £70


So that's my top four! Where do you like to go for a manicure?
