Magnificence & Wellness Stage Up: Lou’s Cosy Autumn Weekend

Autumn is my most favorite time of the 12 months. I like the chilly climate for every part from the meals ( risotto and stews and a superb English roast) to trend with cashmere jumpers and heat coats and cosy evenings underneath a throw watching films with scented candles and a negroni. I believe it’s my Swedish blood, however I actually do love the chilly. 

Weekends are a time to decelerate after a busy week and I attempt to use this time to modify off, carve out some me time but additionally nurture each my physique and thoughts. 

Right here’s what I’m coveting and having fun with in the meanwhile on my weekends. 

Brunch – Ollie’s Home 

Nothing screams weekend greater than brunch. I used to be so excited to listen to about Ollie’s Home opening up in Parsons Inexperienced. Impressed by Ollie’s travels to Indonesia and the Philippines, they provide a scrumptious twist on Asian meals and a unusual brunch menu. From traditional brunch staples to progressive creations. Whether or not you’re within the temper for buttermilk pancakes, Nasi Goreng ( A conventional Indonesian Breakfast) or an English Breakfast Bao, they have you ever lined and many choices for youths. 

We have been completely obsessive about the Nasi Goreng in addition to the wonderful Halloumi and Avo Bao which we’re keen to return and eat once more. As an enormous fan of Asian flavours, this actually was my good brunch. My son had the buttermilk pancakes which actually didn’t disappoint and stored him quiet and occupied for a very long time… an indication of an incredible meal is a couple of minutes of silence from my baby. Not solely was their meals wonderful however their Bloody Mary was presumably top-of-the-line I’ve tried in a very long time. With an additional kick from Wasabi it was the proper approach to begin our weekend as a household. 

Weekend Wardrobe 

I like a comfortable weekend wardrobe vibe however since having my baby I really feel I have to get extra out of an outfit. It must take me from chasing him across the playground to both brunch or lunch with buddies or facial. I’m extra targeted than ever on a capsule wardrobe. 


A white shirt has all the time been a staple in my wardrobe and my favorite proper now’s The Paloma Shirt, with its good outsized match. Launched in July with only one shirt Paloma was born out of the necessity to create the proper white shirt which additionally has as little impression on the planet as doable. From the softest sustainable cloth, the proper outsized form to the fashionable deep cuffs this shirt is designed to face the check of time and redefines the idea of an easy minimal wardrobe. 

Citizen Of Humanity Denims 

Denims are the last word weekend vibe and I’ve not too long ago come to like Citizen Of Humanity for his or her Ayla denims, which you’ve gotten in all probability seen in all places and are finest identified for being types with large turn-up. Denims can all the time be difficult to purchase ( actually I hate shopping for denims and have lived in J model Maria Denims for over a decade) however these are probably the most versatile, and comfy denims one can find and I’m obsessed. As somebody who has been a long-standing member of the thin denims membership  I’m transformed to the saggy denims look and these are those that are good for my weekend vibe this Autumn.


I believe it’s so essential to take some time out for your self on a weekend. I spend a whole lot of time with my son, who I like, however amid the horrible twos it may really feel like onerous work with the each day battles. For me, a while to myself is probably the most restorative.

I had the last word deal with of attending to attempt a bespoke facial with the wonderful Lisa Franklin and it was probably the most unimaginable expertise. Not solely is Lisa probably the most educated and fascinating particular person, however she can be completely divine. I may have chatted together with her for hours. The eagerness she pours into her model, from the product improvement of her skincare vary to understanding your individual skincare wants is second to none. It isn’t a facial for the faint-hearted however a facial which gives you quick outcomes. And the outcomes are wonderful. 

Lisa Franklin gives high-performance, personally tailor-made remedies to deal with your pores and skin in the simplest manner doable. By way of the usage of her award-winning merchandise to steaming, extraction, exfoliating, LED gentle and lymphatic therapeutic massage, no stone is unturned to make sure your pores and skin will appear and feel its highest. 

Night Rituals 

We don’t exit a lot as of late and far desire to spend our evenings at dwelling and nothing beats a comfortable film evening because the evenings are getting darker and colder. It’s all about Netflix and chill. Autumn alerts a time for throws and scented candles. We don’t have a fire, so I like making the room cosy with a number of candles and my new favorite needs to be Ostens – Illumination Cashmeran Velvet which is ideal for making a cocoon of consolation and heat. The scent has refined smoky notes with amber and gentle woods so for those who shut your eyes you may fake you’re sitting by a roaring hearth within the countryside..I additionally assume the mouth-blown scalloped glass is simply beautiful. Time to cosy up in a blanket, gentle my candle and watch Barbie ( am I the one one who hasn’t seen it but?).
