Life through the Instagram lens

Hi lovelies! Sorry for the lack of posting lately, things have been slightly hectic on the work front which has left me with not much time for anything else this week. I hope you're week hasn't been as crazy as mine!

I thought I'd share a few pics of life lately though my instagram lens...

+ On my reading list: Vogue + Zoe Foster's The Younger Man (a very fun read!)

+ A few recent make up favourites: Clinique gradient blush in Black Honey; Nars Silk Road + Taiga eyeshadows; Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner in Ivy Shimmer ink.

+ It's getting colder here; on the weekend I wore boots for the first time this year!

+ I picked these beautiful Calla Lillies from the garden - aren't they incredible?

+ Homemade baba ganoush, celery, carrots + olives made a healthy appetizer for my Dad's birthday.

+ Such a fun idea for my brother's wedding save-the-date - it's a magnet on the other side!

Happy Thursday friends!

  8. I'm 100% addicted to instagram. Love your shots, esp. the boots one! xx

  9. Your boots are beautiful, Rachel! Is there any cold season footwear more stylish than camel boots? Is that a white brick wall I see a glimpse of in the photo next to the boots? One of my favourite elements in interior design. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! xo

  10. Gorgeous photos Rachel! I adore Calla Lillies and smiled when I saw your picture of them :) xoxo
