A Chanel Reveal, Touche Eclat Verdict & Baker Boy Caps!!!

Hi Lovelies,

Happy Friday. 

My first impressions of the Touche Eclat Foundation are most favourable. I used it this morning and it was so nice to apply. Coverage is very light, which is exactly what I was looking for, but it definitely makes your face look more glowy if that makes sense.

It also smells gorgeous, so it is a big YES from me.

I have a new family member to share with you!

I love my Chanel Bags, and I know how lucky I am to have them. But they do not hold that much for everyday use. So this gorgeous bag fits the bill perfectly for me, as it is still the classic shape but with double compartments inside. It is also Patent Leather so perfect in the rain!

It holds a lot more than the single flap

Such big purchases means some sacrifice though of course. So cover your eyes as I DID move along my Celine Mini Luggage to help with this purchase.
It just felt too big for me and a little bit too much like an old lady shopper tote!

I adore them on everybody else, but that doesn't always mean that they are right for all of us huh.
I already used the new Chanel today and it is much more 'me'

A big hat trend is emerging for Autumn/Winter!

Kylie rocked hers much earlier in the year, but sadly the cap got very little attention as she wore it with some frankly terrible shoes that it is very safe to say were not her finest hour!

But this week Rosie and Diane both rocked theres, and the pinnacle came when Emma Stone graced Vogue this month looking drop dead beautiful on the cover (FYI Her particular Baker Boy Cap is by Max Mara)

So, would you rock this look for Autumn / Winter?

My personal opinion is that they are a great look but I would not want to spend too much money on it. A great solution can currently be found at where you can pick this one up in the sale in both colours for £4.50 each! I would add my Chanel Brooch to make it look individual, but you could also put lots of pretty jewels on them or add a chain or two.

The link to purchase this little cap - (along with much better quality pictures!) is HERE!!!

I am doing my Friday Blog early today as it is my Mums Birthday so we are all going out for a family dinner (one of my favourite things!)

So I will post a few more pictures later of what I wore if that is alright with all of you :)

Thanks as always for reading, and please let me know if you have any weekend plans
