The university catching the last rays of sunlight. I would rush past here to the faculty of arts as an undergraduate, always, always late to lectures. Today I walk leisurely home from working in a coffee shop and I stood here for a full 10 minutes before taking a picture of these girls taking pictures. It’s funny how you take things for granted when you see them every day- I passed this place all the time and never stopped to appreciated how pretty it was. Here’s to appreciating little things, like Manchester universities, changing leaves, and afternoon sun. #visitmanchester

@kirstenalana Love a good #ivywall 👌🏼😍

This morning on my walk to the coffee shop I felt a crunch under my boots. Fallen leaves. Glowing skin. It’s absolutely starting to feel like autumn and I’m loving it! I mentioned @caudalie a couple of posts back because of their amazing new Vinopure range and said that I had gone back for the full sized Blemish Control Infusion Serum. Well, this is it, and it’s working wonders for my skin! It’s completely natural and smells like a spa mixed with lemon zest- I’ve started using it before my nightly moisturiser and in the mornings and I feel like my skin is glowing! I don’t think I’ll be wearing much makeup in autumn because I won’t need to 🤞Caudelie, you absolutely have my heart ️ ️ #VinopureSolution #ad #CleanBeauty

@kirstenalana Great skin care! Love them.

Rainy days and peeping toms. If you look closer, you’ll see the cutest little girl peaking behind this storefront in Whitby. Happy Sunday!  #visitengland

Two girls sipping coffee. I feel as though only Oxford would have a chain café in such a beautifully historic building  Also, it’s almost Friday!  #facadelovers

Castle Ashby has to be one of the prettiest places I’ve visited! It’s just so peaceful. The plants and pond glittering as streams of sunlight pour through the glass. I’d love to come back when autumn fully hits and it’s raining and I can cosy up in a corner with a good book and steaming cup of tea. If you’re ever travelling through Northampton, I’d definitely recommend a quick pit stop. Probably not at the weekend though as I’m sure it’s full of screaming kids which I just can’t cope with. 🤦‍️ I’m heading to Sheffield this weekend just for the day so if you know of any coffee shops for me to explore, please do let me know! P.S that red thing in the corner of the photo is one of the biggest goldfish I’ve ever seen!  #castleashby

Daydreaming about pretty trips to the countryside and honey coloured manor houses, wrapped in ivy. Isn’t it beautiful? Wouldn’t mind spending the night here but I’ll bet it costs a fortune! Until I’m a millionaire, I’ll just pose outside it 🤦‍️ #thecotswolds

Is there anything better than that first sip of coffee on a morning? Piping hot on a chilly day. It’s starting to feel like autumn and I’m just making myself a fresh batch from @pactcoffee before getting started on my huge list of things to do. You know when you have so much to do, and you just don’t know where to start so your brain feels like it’s turning to mush? Well that’s been me all week. 🤦‍️ Send help. And copious amounts of fresh coffee. ️ #freshcoffee #lovefreshcoffee #ad #coffeeheavan #londoncoffee

@kirstenalana I adore Oxford.

Right. Let’s quickly talk skin. I’ve always always had oily skin and, whilst it’s nice to tell yourself you’ll look great at 60 because of it, it’s not so great when you’re meeting friends and you catch a glimpse of yourself with a forehead brighter than your future. We’re exploring the countryside around @overstoneparkltd and the fallen leaves are already making it feel like autumn! Hence my candles are out in full force and yes, I’m wearing my favourite pair of cosy socks. I switched up my usual toiletries for @caudalie and decided to try their new Vinopure range. For £12.50 you can grab this 15 day “Discovery Box” on the Caudalie website which helps to reduce blemishes and shine. I’ve been using it whilst away and I genuinely loved the skin perfecting serum so much that I just ordered a full sized bottle. Perfect autumn skin, come at me please! #VinopureSolution #CleanBeauty #ad

Heading for a morning walk through @overstoneparkltd grounds where people are having breakfast by the sparkling lake or preparing for a game of golf on the green. Is it just be or does this remind you of America? With the pretty lake boats ready to be taken out and the huge wooden cabin in the back. Coming back in autumn when all the leaves are changing colour and there’s a morning mist across the lake must be magical! You know you can stay here for a weekend or just move in all year around?...ahhh a girl can dream #roadtripping

Soft light and deep wood. Afternoons filled with pick-me-ups. As we left the promenade and started walking home, we found this gem of a café and my sister treated me to my first Affogato. My god. Has anyone tried it? Coffee and ice-cream, together. And we sat and ate it in the cosiest of all places. Sisters are okay sometimes. I guess. @nadiabella123

Hi hi. Don’t mind me in my little polkadot dress, exploring Atlea’s beautiful coastline. The water was azure blue and the sand soft and powdery. I’m in love  p.s I need to admit that I’m never this tall in flip flops- I’m on my tiptoes 🤦‍️ #visitspain

This morning we stepped out just as this old man was kissing his wife and two cats goodbye. They stood in the street and hugged for ages. We saw him later in the day finishing up a game of boules on the beach, holding a bunch flowers. More of this please.  #romanceisntdead

Sunbleached houses and soulful streets. My sister and I spent the day exploring Altea, in the South of Spain. We climbed up to the mountaintop church, with its gorgeous blue tiled roof and then ate ice-cream in a nearby courtyard. We’re really making the most of our extra slice of summer before we head back to reality in Manchester, where I’m sure the autumn rain is in full swing! #visitspain

@kirstenalana This is just 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

Do you think I’m becoming a bit of a plant hoarder? Thinking of opening my own shop 🤦‍️ Just sitting here, thinking of editing some writing, thinking of making a hot chocolate, or thinking of starting to read a new book. Hmmm procrastination really should be my middle name. I’m listening to Lou Reed on my @UltimateEars speaker so I’ll probably just stay here and enjoy my lazy morning. 🤦‍️ #WONDERBOOM #ad
