Holy mother of all that is stylish, it’s unbelievably cold outside! Over the weekend I took part in my annual Christmas clear out and came across a few coats that I had forgotten about.
Therefore, I decided to browse online and treat myself to a new one. I’m still a little unsure as to which one I’m going to go with, but, I thought I’d share with all of you my favourite pieces.
The hard part is trying to figure out which style I want to go with!
Hope you all had a fabb weekend. ♥
It’s not exactly a fashion or beauty based post, but, a stylish little suggestion for some Christmas reading.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Lindsey Kelk and her ‘I Heart’ book series. If you all remember a few weeks ago I interviewed her on the blog (read here♥).
There’s no better way to welcome in the festive period than by snuggling up with a heart felt and funny book. The weirdo in me actually looks forward to getting a early night so I can fit in a good read.
Anywho, without sounding like a kiss ass and someone who is forcing you all to read this book, you really should buy it because it’s a must read ;).
Happy Friday ♥
Being part of a fashion and beauty blogging network has its major advantages. Not only do I get the chance to mingle with a great group of ladies, but, they are a team of strong individuals with great industry knowledge.
I do love my skincare, but, from time to time I like to ask some of the other ladies for their opinion. Enter the beautiful Nicola from Strawberry Blonde Beauty. Her knowledge of all things beauty is impressive and I came across a tweet she had uploaded about a skincare brand called, Organic Surge.
“Organic Surge skincare products blend powerful natural ingredients with the latest technologies to safeguard your skin and even help in its repair. Regular use of our organic skincare range will help to neutralise environmental irritants, combat free radicals and actively speed-up cell renewal.“
“ All Organic Surge skincare products have been clinically tested, dermatologically tested and certified as suitable for sensitive skin. Just like your skin, they are 100% free from harsh chemicals such as SLS, parabens and synthetic colorants and fragrances.“
I’m really quite excited to try out the products I’ve picked. I opted for their eye gel, blissful daily moisturiser, first class mask and daily care face wash.
I’ll let you know in a few weeks how I get on. Again, thanks to Nic! ♥
I was quite the busy bee on Thursday evening. Running between two events while battling a nasty little head cold, I treated myself to a much deserved spot of retail therapy.
I decided to purchase a beautiful nude Lancôme lipstick from their Rouge in Love collection. I opted for their effortless Rose Thé shade. I’ve never experimented with the brand much so I was open to starting small. The lovely make up artist matched up my perfect shade and the next thing I knew, I was buying it.
It’s the kind of shade that you can wear both during the day or on a night out. I actually wore it out on Friday night. I was wanting to create a natural look so it was perfect.
With the lipstick, I was given a goodie bag filled with all kinds of Lancôme pieces. I was honestly over the moon and I’m looking forward to testing out my new products.
Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Hard to believe it’s December already! ♥
With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I would share with all of you my favourite pieces from my Christmas ‘Wish List ‘. I’m obsessed with all things embellished and colourful. I thought I would throw a little home decor in the mix too!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. ♥
I was pleasantly surprised at the pieces that I purchased from Marks and Spencer at the weekend. First it was the shoes, then I spotted this breath taking multi coloured floral blouse.
As soon as I tried it on, I instantly fell in love. When it comes to my personal style, I prefer to opt for looks that consist of bright and vibrant colours and patterns. I paired it with my leather skirt from Warehouse and black strap sandals from New Look.
The variety of colours help brighten up my look. A bold pink or even a dark plum lip would work perfectly with this blouse. I’ll keep the rest of my look to a minimum as I don’t want to look too over the top.
With blouses I love going for a more structured style by wearing them buttoned up with a statement necklace. Although it’s also great to leave some buttons opened for a more relaxed look.
I’d love to know what you guys think of my latest Marks and Spencer pieces. ♥
Elvis Presley eat your heart out. Taking a leaf from the king himself, this season I’ll be rocking it out in my new blue suede shoes from none other than, Marks and Spencer.
Royal blue isn’t usually a colour I would go for, but, I wanted to branch out a little with my footwear so I decided to treat myself to these fabulous ankle boots.
I love the buckle detailing along the breast of the boot, they give it a real rock ‘n’ roll feel. They would look perfect worn with a pair of leather trousers, a skirt and even a short mini dress.
I just need to work out what I’m going to style them with!
