All I want for Christmas, is……… everything in this gift guide.
For a very long time I’ve lusted after the classic Lulu Guinness lips clutch but now I think I’ve been tempted elsewhere…
I feel like I’ve spent the past three years typing the words ‘I’m on the hunt for the perfect pair of flat ankle boots’ and only now do I think I’ve found a pair I might actually purchase. You’ve gotta love ASOS.
I wear my red glitter boots to work a lot and every time I wear them they draw different reactions from my colleagues, so I figured I’d pull all the admiration together in one little love-filled post.
Me and my cousin are complete polar opposites. She dresses like a retro 50’s pin up, is crafty with a sewing machine and can draw the perfect feline flick. I, on the other hand, favour comfort and oversized tees, will wear my clothes with holes in until they disintegrate and can never be bothered with the precision of a feline flick. My crafty cousin got out her needle and thread and whipped me up some glittery purple perfection. Probably because she wants to up my glam factor.
I have a lot of black in my wardrobe. Black for me looks elegant, classic and is the perfect base for allowing me to add a pop of colour, texture or print when needed.
Everyone has that one polish that no matter the occasion, you know that by painting your nails in that colour you’ll smile the whole day. Well mine just so happens to be turquoise and from Marks and Spencer. [Read more]
I’ve pretty much been living in this pretty peppermint shade from Barry M for the past three months since I bought it. To begin with it was my least favourite of the three I picked up (Pit Stop, Eat My Dust and Road Rage) but surprisingly it’s the been the one I keep going back to.
Because I always like to add a touch of sparkle, I applied Nails Inc Jubilee Place, a glittery sliver, to the tips of the nails. This is my favourite and easiest way of adding some extra glam power.
And yep, that’s a freshly planted Thyme bush in the background because Al I became very middle aged last weekend sorting out our garden and planting our own herbs. How times have changed.
Let’s just take a minute to cast our minds back to Wednesday. The sun was shining, there was a light breeze in the air and a feeling of calm on my normally stressful commute. Every one was digging the weather. So much so, that I deemed it only appropriate to bust out my metallic teal pleated midi skirt and rock a bit of shimmer and a bit of leg.
That’s right. I unleashed my inner Ariel and channelled a mermaid for the day.
I originally bought this skirt around the end of last year and wore it to my work Christmas party but I knew it’d be one I could wear again and again, no matter the occasion.
This time, I paired it with a plain grey sleeveless top, snake print blazer, and a statement necklace, not forgetting to mention my silver sparkly slipper shoes.
