Hey guys,

I know the last thing you probably need to see this week is another Cyber Week post and yet here I am! I’m not exaggerating, I’ve spent the last week trawling through AAAAALL the sites to try to get some bits for the run up to Christmas here in New York and for Christmas at home too. When I’d all the hard work done I thought “sure, why not put it in a blog post?” and add to the 50 billion posts already out there (slight exaggeration, but it sure does feel like it!).

Anywho, as I was on the hunt for bits and pieces to wear, most of these pieces are clothes related from my go-to sites…

Topshop

Forever my favourite!! There’s never not something I’ll want from here! They have up to 50% off.

ASOS

20% off! TBH, I think everyone should have a stunner of a dress like this in their wardrobe in case of emergency!

Nasty Gal

60% off!!! Myself and 2 other girls at work may have just ordered this dress – we’re definitely gonna have to co-ordinate when we wear it! So far, I’ve also got this skirt because it’s just too perfect freakin for party season!

SheIn

Random, but I do have a 20% off discount code at the moment (with lcscloset20)! I may have used it to get this houndstooth coat I’ve had my eye on for weeks. I also ordered this sweater because the reviews are stellar and this little tweed number because why the hell not!

Missguided

I got myself this beauty with 50% off!

Boohoo

Thinking I absolutely need this in my life!! Thoughts?

Turn on your JavaScript to view content
Mango

30% off all weekend is amazing! Tbh, Zara need to take a leaf outta Mango’s book… Just saying!

Turn on your JavaScript to view content
River Island

Tbh, I’m kinda disappointed with River Island Cyber Week deal! They’re already overpriced for the quality (IMO), so they could at least apply a discount without conditions. Anywho, all that aside, they always have pieces I drool over!

Turn on your JavaScript to view content
Beauty Bits

I’m never gonna be a huge experimenter when it comes to buying beauty bits, so I’m just gonna take advantage of sites that have offers on some of my absolute favourite bits. The one I’m most excited about is Paula’s Choice having 20% off because I’m outta their 2% BHA Salicylic Acid and I’m obsessed with this stuff!! It’s AH-FREAKIN-MAZING!!!!

Turn on your JavaScript to view content

I’m not done yet! Cyber Monday hasn’t even arrived, so time will tell what other of these bits I pick up too!

Happy Shopping,

Lorna xx

Hey guys,

Here I am chilling on the Staten Island Ferry on my way out to, you guessed it, Staten Island. I went out there last week to go to the Staten Island Mall and I actually forgot how fab it is, especially on a fab summers day. Fun fact about the ferry… It’s one of my favourite things to do for free in NYC.

After our trip out on the ferry, I remembered just how long it’s been since I shared a good Things to do in NYC style post. I get so many questions about things I do and just things to do in NYC in general, so here I am with an updated “Favourite things to do for free in NYC” list (because it’s been 3 years since my last one!!), with a bonus things to that aren’t gonna break the bank section too. NYC is expensive, but you really don’t have to break the bank to enjoy this amazing city.

Like I said, I already have a post on My Favorite Things to Do for Free in NYC, so I’ll just re-list them here and if you want more details, you can find them in this post (I went a little deeper).

Some of my favourite things to do in NYC for free:

  1. Brooklyn Bridge (especially at Sunset)
  2. Grand Central (someday I will share all the random GCT facts i have stored in my brain) – There’s also a free tour too, that I have yet to do.
  3. Dumbo, Brooklyn… I’m so lucky I get to see this place 5 days a week.
  4. The Staten Island Ferry – A great way to see the Statue of Liberty if you don’t want to go on the island.
  5. The Parks… All the parks! Central Park, Bryant Park, Madison Square Park, Washington Square Park, Gantry State Plaza.
  6. The Highline – Also fab at sunset
  7. Soho & The West – You never know who you might see (stop off at Perry St. to see Carrie’s stoop).
  8. Fifth Avenue – Honestly, nothing feels more NYC to me. Especially from The Plaza to Saks.
  9. Washington Mews – a hidden gem near WSP. Feels like you’re in Europe!
  10. Going for a random wander – It’s the best way to see the city.
  11. Hoboken, New Jersey – As amazing as the view is from Dumbo, it’s probably better from Hoboken. It feels way closer to the city.
  12. Outdoor Movies (in summer) – There’s loads of different places across Manhattan and Brooklyn.
  13. The Williamsburg Bridge – It’s very different to Brooklyn Bridge and a hell of a lot quieter. Warning… Brooklyn Bridge is very busy and bikers are crazy!!!
  14. The Oculus – The amazing new transportation hub at the World Trade Center. It’s spectacular. It also has a Westfield Shopping Centre.
  15. Irish Famine Memorial – If you’re Irish! This has recently re-opened after repairs and it’s amazing and moving!

And the not free but not too expensive stuff…

  1. Rooftop bars – You just need to pay for drinks (probably $18-$20 with tip)! My favourite rooftops:
    The One Hotel in Dumbo
    The Standard in Meatpacking
    The Rainbow Room Bar at Top of the Rock – (pro-tip you can do this instead of going to the top and it’s pretty much the same view)
    The Met – The view overlooking the park is amazing!! You do have to pay a small entry to The Met too.
  2. The East River Ferry – I get this to work everyday. It’s the same price as the Subway ($2.75)
  3. Biking Central Park… I did this a few weeks ago and will 100% be doing it again soon (it’s around $15)
  4. The Central Park Boats – I love doing this. It’s a great way to spend part of a day and it’s only $15
  5. The Met – There’s a suggested donation of $25 but it’s up to you what you pay
  6. Smorgasborg – Kinda free, but you pay for the food. It’s the largest weekly open-air food market in America and has been described as “The Woodstock of Eating” – LOL! It’s in Williamsburg on Saturday & Prospect Park on Sunday.
  7. Governors Island (in summer) – An island just south of Manhattan with fab views of Downtown. You just pay for the ferry
  8. The Beach (in summer) – You have to pay to get there, but that’s about it. Rockaway, Coney Island, Brighton Beach & Long Beach (you pay to get on this beach but it’s fab!) are the easy to get to from the city, and I need to go this summer.

One of my top recommendations is to walk the bridge to Dumbo, wander around for a bit, grab a drink at The One Hotel rooftop and get the East River Ferry back to Manhattan (best time is a sunset IMO!). Or you could do the opposite and get the ferry to Dumbo and walk the bridge back (sunset is the prettiest).

Hope this helps if you’re planning a trip,

Hey guys! After a long (almost 4 month hiatus) I am back blogging thanks to THE ROYAL WEDDING!!! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen all of my many royal my Insta Stories all this week. I’m not sure if I’ve said this here before but I love history and I LOVE royal history, royalty, basically just anything to do with royalty tbh!! It’s a fascinating world of interconnections and traditions and EUGH… It just fascinates me!!!!!!

Anywho, instead of going through my favourite outfits (and disappointments) over on my Insta Stories (that would be WAAAAAY too long), I decided to make a return to blogging to do it here. I will have a blog post on my blogging hiatus at some stage next week too, but for now it’s ROYAL WEDDING STYLE TIME!! Whoooop!!! I’m breaking this out into multiple different sections because I think it’s warranted.

The Royal Family

First up is the Royal Family style. The British Royal Family are the most prolific hat wearers of all the Royal Family’s (the Spanish are the least and it kills me a little because Queen Letizia would look superb in more hats!!), so they’re getting a whole section to themselves.

HM The Queen, looked fab as always! At 92, she’s still some goer! I loved Camilla’s hat – Perfect for a Royal Wedding! I’m not going to include either of them here, because while their outfits were fab and perfect for them, I’m never gonna wear any of them. I’m also gonna bypass Princess Anne, because I’ve lost all hope for her tbh! She was so stylish back in the day, but the fact she still has outfits from the 70’s and 80’s on rotation will show you what I mean. I admire the thriftiness, but come on – You’re a millionaire!!!

Ok, back to business! In order of precedence, it’s straight to Kate:

The Duchess of Cambridge

I’m gonna straight up say, this was one of the biggest disappointments of the day. My guess is that Kate wore a piece she has been seen in multiple times before so she wouldn’t take any of the attention away from Meghan – She did this with her choice of a muted tone outfit for her sisters wedding too, but that was new, bespoke, Alexander McQueen (and I loved it!)!!!
Kate, this is a Royal Wedding and if that doesn’t warrant a new spectacular outfit then I don’t know what does? I do love her new Philip Treacy hat though (whoop Irish designer!!). It was perfect for elevating the look, but my heart still yearns for what could have been.

I also do think she may not want to invest in a new piece until she gets back to her pre-baby weight. Not that she has any to lose! She looks AH-MAZING just a few weeks after having Prince Louis!

P.s. I love Princess Charlotte – She’s officially my favourite Cambridge baby!!

The York Princesses

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are definitely polarizing members of the Royal Family. I personally think they aren’t given enough credit. They take risks, which I LOVE!! And they are always mixing it up and trying new things. Beatrice would have even got my vote for best dressed at Kate and William’s wedding in her beautiful haute couture Valentino coat and dress if her hat didn’t look so crazy.

Kate definitely plays it kind of safe and sticks to the same style but these two aren’t afraid to try something new. Sometimes it works, sometimes it flops, but hey, at least they try and keep us entertained in the process.

Princess Beatrice of York

I am going to be controversial here and say I actually like this outfit. I love the Roksanda Illincic dress (Kate has worn this designer in the past too). Maybe it was a little OTT for a day dress but I do like it, especially compared to some of the misses she has had in the past. I like the  Stephen Jones headpiece here, I don’t know if something is kind of falling a little flat for me, but the dress definitely requires something on the simple, so I appreciate what she was going for, and for playing it a little safer this time round. Love her bag too.

Princess Eugenie of York

It was retro vibes from Princess Eugenie in Gainsbourg – A new bespoke British label. Guys, if you know me at all you’ll know I can’t resist 60’s style so this dress paired with a pillbox hat by Fiona Graham (insert RAISED HANDS emoji! – I love a good pillbox hat) and those Valentino Rockstuds, gets a thumbs up from me! I also love her M2malletier bag (I adore these bags!!!). Check, check, check!!!

The Countess of Wessex

Sophie, The Countess of Wessex is, in my opinion, the most underrated member of the Royal Family in the style stakes. She knocks it out of the park time and time again but we never see anything about her – which annoys me because I want to see all the pretty outfits, not just the pretty outfits Kate and Meghan wear. I’m not prejudiced when it comes to my royal style.

Her look today was very Sophie. She has worn Suzannah before (definitely at Royal Ascot) and has many many Jane Taylor hats. The outfit on its own was fab, but the gorgeous hat just took it to another level. Her hat wardrobe is something to be envied. So nice to see her fab fashion getting some coverage.

Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor

Ok so here’s the thing about Lady Louise, as she is a male-line grandchild of a monarch, she is actually a Princess of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. BUT when her parents married in 1999 it was decided that their children would be styled with the titles of an Earl. Now I don’t know about you, but if I was entitled to use the title of HRH and Princess, I would be pretty pissed. Anyway, I’m just including this here because as far as I’m aware, this was Louise’s first foray into the world of hats and I just think she’s so cute.

Random fact – She was a bridesmaid for William and Kate in 2011.

Autumn Phillips

Autumn Phillips is the wife of Peter Phillips, Princess Anne’s son and The Queen’s oldest and favourite grandson (apparently). This coat dress looks to me to be an Emilia Wickstead number (I’ll update when I have been able to confirm). I love it! I think the colour is fab and it’s tailored to perfection. And so much better than her choice in 2011. Autumn is a dark horse in the style stakes. She has been bringing it with her outfits recently. I mean look at this hat from Easter Service!!!

Zara Tindall

Zara is one of my favourites when it comes to Royal hats! She wears them so well and boy can she pick them. She has an amazing flair for picking the perfect hard to compliment and lift any outfit. I don’t know how she does it!

I’m gonna be totally honest and say at first glance today I didn’t love this look, but it has grown on me. She is heavily pregnant and I’m sure it’s not easy to dress a bump for a wedding, so she gets props for that, and her hat and outfit accessorizing are on point. If I was to have one qualm it would be that her Claire Mischevani embellished coat was a little on the dark side for a May wedding. Her hair was fab and showed off her hat to perfection! And let’s also take a second for all those memes flying around…

The Countess of Snowdon

I’ve spent hours trying to find a picture and details of the Countess of Snowdon’s outfit and it’s impossible. This is the best I can do. Serena is married to the Earl of Snowdon (the Queen’s nephew, Princess Margaret’s son) and she is generally pretty damn fab. I loved her hat today. Apparently, her dress was pretty fab too, but I haven’t been able to get a decent look at it or find out who designed it (hellllppppp me if you know?), so I’ll be back with an update when I do.

Also pictured in front of the Earl and Countess are the Duke and Duchess of Gloucestershire and behind them Prince & Princess Michael of Kent – The Duke and Princes are The Queen’s first cousins.

Happy Friday guys! We’re coming to the end of January and it got me thinking about what I want to do more of in 2018 both here on the blog and in life in general.

If you read my post on my goals for 2018 you’ll know that my goals are pretty damn simple. My second goal was basically taking better care of me and a lot of what I want to do more of this year revolves around just that. So here are the 5 things I’m gonna be doing more of in 2018:

1. My Friday Five posts – I love doing this weekly series and I 1,000% want to get back into doing them consistently in 2018.

2. Getting more sleep – I started doing this after I got back from Ireland in September and I’ve been quite good at keeping this up (until this past week). The difference it has made has been unreal.

3. My morning walks – Another thing I started doing after I got back to NYC in September and I there’s only been one week day since that I haven’t got up and gone for a walk. That’s pretty good going if you ask me. I love getting up early and starting my day by getting in some of my 10k a day, seeing the winter sunrises, grabbing my morning coffee, and just having so much time to myself before I go to work.

4. Switching off – From work, social media, blogging, life… To just chill out and watch Netflix for a day here and there. I usually never do this but have been doing it more recently and it’s bliss.

5. Exploring NYC and beyond – I LOVE Manhattan but it’s just one of the 5 boroughs and I haven’t discovered near enough of them. Last weekend I made my first trip to Long Island City in over 2 years and it reminded me that getting out of Manhattan at the weekends and enjoying quieter parts of the city is one of the best way to chillax and unwind. More that in 2018 fo sho!!

Et voilà. I’m hoping these will make for a much very healthy 2018 – Maybe not the Friday Five’s but you know what I mean.

Happy weekend guys,
