Things I've Loved This Week // 040

Goodness me, it has been a little while since I did one of these posts so here is a little Sunday round-up of some of the things I have been loving this week!

Fresh Converse

Things like this shouldn't make me so happy but honestly, they do! I purchased these beauties from ASOS this week with the sole intention of wearing them when we go to Walt Disney World later this year. A tad indulgent but gotta keep my feet comfy, yes?! You can literally walk countless miles each day there without even realising and having proper shoes can make all the difference. I usually go for black when it comes to Converse so this pristine white pair is quite a change for me. I flippin' love them! 

Lord of the Lost

Frequently included in my weekly round-up posts, my love for this band shows absolutely no signs of dying! I don't think I've ever fallen so hard for a band before, and I fangirl a lot so this is saying something. I just love everything about them. Their sound, their aesthetic, their ability to perfectly reinvent themselves. This week I got to see them live in the UK and it really was a special moment for me. Admittedly emotional. I have everything crossed that their visit here is the first of many now, they are thoroughly exquisite to see live! 

Autumn feels

My favourite season is creeping up on us and I am so excited for all the things that autumn brings! Pumpkin Spice Lattes, getting to layer up, long walks, buying new boots and choosing my winter coat, nights out, darker evenings, lighting all the candles, getting cosy, Halloween in all the shops, hot chocolates.... ahhhhh! There has been a definite chill in the air this week (and an awful lot of rain!) and all I can say is autumn, bring it on!

New Leighton Denny nail products

This week I have been loving two new additions to my nail kit in the form of the Leighton Denny Crystal Finish quick dry top coat and the Leighton Denny "Caught Red Handed" nail polish*. Caught Red Handed is a gorgeous iridescent deep red that is just perfect for autumn. Jewel like and super glossy, I anticipate that i'll be wearing this shade plenty over the coming months. I don't think you could get a more perfect vampy red for Halloween, it's gorgeous!

The Crystal Finish quick dry top coat does its job perfectly too in that I can now apply my polish and not have to wait an eternity for it to dry. Perfect when you're running around after a 3 year old all day! Not only does it help speed up the whole process of applying nail polish, it helps keep your nails chip free for longer. Honestly I applied the red at the beginning of the week and used the top coat and it is still going strong this weekend! I'll be using the top coat every time I apply nail polish from now on, it's exactly what I have been looking for!

FastPass Day

Our 60 day mark crept up on us recently meaning that we could make our FastPass bookings for our upcoming trip to Walt Disney World. This is the final big bit of planning for us and now I feel like I can finally relax and start counting down the days! We managed to book everything we planned for and I am so excited for all the new experiences we'll have as a family. I am super excited about taking kiddo on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train this year as she has finally passed the magic height marker of 97cm. And Peter Pans Flight too because on our past Disney trips we've either not been able to get a FastPass or the standby queues were horrendous. But this year, finally, we got a FastPass! Hurry up, November!
