The beautiful and talented Amy Adams is on the cover of ELLE UK November 2016 and she looks so cute. I love the cover. She looks so relaxed and pretty, like a typical girl next door, and I love it. I also love the fact that she is channeling her autumn style in Balenciaga. Loving the autumn vibes.

This issue promises to be a good read. In her interview with ELLE UK, Amy discusses her struggles to balance family and work, being compared to other women in Hollywood, the issue with the pay gap and being over 40 in a competitive industry.

‘The negotiation comes to a standstill and I have to make a choice, which a lot of women do. I can walk away. But I choose not to…This is an issue not just about women’s pay; we need to work on how women are viewed in society and then the pay will be reflected in that…Right now time is more important to me. So that’s what I negotiate because any time I’m working, I’m not spending with my daughter.’

‘I gave up wanting to look like Charlize when I was, like, 12. I have short legs, I’m athletic, I have pale skin that reacts to cold and hot moisture. You just have to accept who you are. In those comparisons, I always lost.’

This five-time Oscar nominee is also the star of Tom Ford’s new film Nocturnal Animals and Sci-Fi drama Arrival, both of which are garnering five-star reviews and Oscar buzz at the moment.

I would love to read this issue. I can see myself grabbing a copy. I have always liked Amy Adams. I find her very interesting so I would naturally want to know more about her. The price usually puts me off but I have been feeling generous lately so I may get this.

What do you think of this issue? Are you a fan of Amy Adams?

September Outfits 2016

September was an interesting month of outfits on Fashion and Style Police. It was a transition month to Autumn Fashion and I loved it. As you all know, I am a big fan of Autumn Fashion with the layers and comfy pieces, so I really enjoyed styling various looks and photographing them. It was my way of saying goodbye to Summer Fashion and getting myself and wardrobe ready for Autumn.

I didn’t have the opportunity to post as many outfits as I would have wanted because September was a very busy month for me in my real life as well as my online life. But I got away with posting 3 different looks.

Here is a brief recap for those who missed them:

OOTD: It Feels Like Autumn

I had this white dress in my wardrobe for weeks before I actually wore it. I usually shy away from buying white pieces because I use to think they were not investment pieces. But I have sort of fallen in love with white, and I blame it on my Fashion Blogger friend – Moji of Moj n Touch, she makes white look so good.

I found this outfit easy to style. I was naturally drawn to the pieces and accessories. It took zero effort.

 

OOTD: A Blogger Event Outfit

I wore this outfit to the Street Style Bus Event some weeks ago, and I told you all about why I wear black to press events and all. So if you missed any of the posts, hit the links and catch up.

This outfit was easy to style as well. I am a sucker for animal prints (like you may have already noticed) when styled correctly. I have quite a few in my wardrobe.

 

OOTD: A Wedding Guest Outfit

So I saved the best for last. My favourite look in September and the most viewed outfit post is this Wedding Guest Outfit right here. I really enjoyed styling this look. It took me out of my comfort zone and I liked the finished look. This wedding guest outfit inspired a lot of my readers and I was very pleased to hear that.

Which is your favourite outfit of all?

5 Things I Love About Autumn

beauty-blogger-uk

 

Autumn is here and it is my favourite season as you should all know by now (because I don’t shut up about my love for Autumn, hehehe). I love the gradual transition from summer to winter, and I enjoy the transition weather a lot.

There are so many things about this season that I love but if I have to narrow my top 5 things I love about Autumn, here is how I would list them –

Chilled Evenings

I love how chilled out everywhere is during Autumn. After the hustle and bustle of summer with barbecues, picnics, holidays and people just all over the place, it is a breath of fresh air to just sit back and enjoy relaxing/chilled out evenings with my Sky Tv. The chilled evenings also make room for some me time with my personal grooming assistants – I like to have many bubble baths with my Yankee Candles burning in the background. I like to enjoy a massage with my massaging gadget, I like to relax and enjoy a manicure and pedicure with my mani/pedi gift set, and I like to shave my legs with my new epilator.

I have my evenings planned out this season and I plan to make the most of them.

 

Colour Change in Leaves

The colour change in leaves is so beautiful, I love it so much. The vibrant ambers, reds and yellows of Autumn is the best sight ever!

 

Chilly Weather

After the heat wave we experienced this summer, the chilly weather is needed. I like the fact that it is not too warm or too cold in Autumn, it is just perfect. The chilly weather is one of the best things in Autumn.

Autumn Fashion

I love Autumn Fashion as you all know already. The transition to layering style is so cool. I like the fact that I can throw on and off layers when needed.

 

The Darkness

It is getting dark already and I am not usually a fan of the darkness but as soon as I became a mother, I began to cherished the shorter days and longer nights because it is a lot easier to get the kids in bed at night, and get them to wake in the morning at a good time. Unlike in summer when it is still very bright at bedtime (7pm), my kids sometimes find it very difficult to understand that it is actually bed time, and then the sun comes out so early, they think it is their wake up time or what they call “morning time”. Good not to have to deal with that during Autumn/Winter.

 

Are you a fan of the Autumn season? What do you like the most about the season? Drop me a comment in the comment section below.
