NYC // #3 My Favourite "Hidden" Part

NYC // #3 My Favourite "Hidden" Part
Sunday, 1 January 2017
Read post


To round up my NYC posts I wanted to share with you one of my favourite parts of the city: The High Line. It seems that this area isn't talked about as much as other attractions, because it is hidden away as a raised route, which used to be a railway line, that runs through the city and provides you with such an incredible viewing experience!


I love how it is full of lots of plants and greenery, and the views and glimpses of the city streets are amazing- I definitely recommend taking this walk.



However, one of the main features I love is the frequent displays of artwork throughout the route giving it a quirky and modern creative vibe.




Let me know in the comments what you thought of my New York photos series? And, where would you like to visit most in NYC?

I always seem to be drawn to anything and everything metallic, so when choosing a shade to paint my nails of course this Kiko Rose Gold polish caught my eye. It is a gorgeous colour for all year round, but I think it is especially fitting for this festive season!





These photos are with only one coat as I wanted to show how effective only one coat is if you're in a rush, or just impatient like me, and it lasts ages without chipping! I always find myself admiring my nails and I receive lots of compliments with this on my nails!



Some of you may remember that I showed this in my Spain Collective Haul post a while ago, and I have been loving it ever since! If you don't remember it is the Rose Gold Power Pro Nail Laquer- Kiko Cosmetics and I would definitely recommend it both for the stunning colour and incredible formula.


Let me know: what are your favourite nail shades for this festive season?

As December is now flying by, I was desperate to make some festive treats, and when I stumbled upon this Deliciously Ella Mince Pie Recipe I knew I had to make them right away!


One of the most amazing parts of this recipe is that you make the mincemeat from scratch (easier than you may think, I promise!) And whilst the apples and dried fruit were simmering in the gorgeous wintery spices, my entire kitchen was filled with the smell of 'Christmas'.


They are packed full of good ingredients, so you won't feel bad for eating two..or three (like me...oops!). You can find the recipe here on Ella's blog:
or on her app, which has recently become one of my new favourites!


Mum and I tucked in to some of these together, paired with my chai tea (of course, the usual), and Mum's coffee, and they were so delicious!

Let me know if you try out this recipe!

So here it is: Part 2 of my NYC photos! These are really some of my favourite views of the city- I mean how incredible are they?! I really hope you like seeing these little glimpses in to my trip.


We chose one of the best days to walk over Brooklyn Bridge as the weather was so gorgeous which made the view even more beautiful!



And of course how could I go to NYC without going up the Empire State Building?! These photos are taken from the 86th floor viewing platform, an it was honestly such an incredible experience.



where would you like to visit in NYC??

It's fair to say that I am a dedicated ASOS shopper. Anytime I am on the lookout for some new clothes, ASOS will be my first port of call. So, naturally I made a small order recently to get some more basic pieces to wear for Sixth Form (and also casually), to fit with the transitioning seasons of Autumn to Winter. So, here is everything I got (I have popped the links down below too!) :

So...I'm back to blogging! I took a break for a little while to enjoy my time in New York City and also catch up on the huge load of schoolwork that I had been drowning in (A Levels...yikes!). I didn't want to be even more stressed and just putting up posts for the sake of it, but I am back now with this post of a small glimpse in to one part of my trip to NYC (there is more to come!).

Hello lovelies!

I just wanted to make a short post today to update you with my plans for the next couple of weeks. It is almost half term for me (which means I get a week off school-yay!), and my family and I are spending the entire time in New York City!!! So I just wanted to let you know that incase I am a bit MIA for a short while, but don't worry, there will be lots of NYC posts to come to make up for it!

Also, I would LOVE if you could all comment some places I need to visit, cute cafes (preferably plant-based), or touristy things that I need to fit in to my week there.
Thank you so much,



-Monochrome Roses

There is no doubt about it that I am obsessed with mandala patterns. I have so many prints, cushions and even a tapestry with them on- I just think they are so intricate and beautiful.

If you didn't already know,  a couple of months ago I made the jump to buy myself a Macbook Air, and I am in love with it! When I was browsing etsy recently, I spotted this gorgeous sleeve for my laptop I just knew that I had to buy it.
