Holy guacamole has it got cold here in ole Nueva York. Seriously chilly. And I have a feeling it’s only going to get colder… Horrifyingly. So much of this week has been about finding the perfect winter coat and at the moment I’m busy deciding between something totally practical and waterproof – or something unbelievably glam and cosy. Hmmm. Thoughts?!

Five favourites

Place: We took my uncle’s dog for a walk near his house in Connecticut and with the winter sun shining through the orange leaves it was just beautiful. So pretty. Definitely my favourite sight of the week.

Food: This week I discovered Trader Joe’s for the first time. Goodness gracious it’s amazing. Particularly the dark chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds. Delicious.

Experience: I’ve been driving here in the US and got the chance to drive a pretty powerful car which was so fun.

Read/watch: Currently reading The Song of Achilles and loving it.

Beauty bit: I think it has to be the Maybelline Color Show Mono Eyeshadow in Lustrous Beige. As you may have seen in this post, it is the most beautiful taupe-y colour and I haven’t stopped wearing it.

Have a good weekend everyone and don’t forget to follow me over on Instagram @CharlieLanks!
