Merry Christmas to all of you. I hope you've had a ball as much as me. Food, family and friends is what it's all about at this time of year and that's just what I've been doing. Visiting everyone and just enjoying some time off and also time away from London. 

Totally of subject, but if you didn't know I'm obsessed with dachshunds and my boyfriend bought me this super cute necklace a few weeks back. Its first outing was on a casual day out up north. A rather simple look, but I adore this red pu skirt that I bought from Next last season.  A perfect A-Line shape it's great for day through tonight, which is just what you want at this time of year....don't cha think?!

HOLLA...firstly I'm going to apologise for being MIA this week. I've not been feeling too good and just haven't been in the right frame of mind for blogging with so much going on...Anyhow I'm back in full swing so let me show you what I have for you guys...I bought this Karen Walker dress while I was in New Zealand and I absolutely love it. Its made from sweatshirt material making it perfect for winter when worn with some opaque's and comfy ankle boots. I added a splash of colour with this amazing sporty x-body, just so the look wasn't too mono....even if that's what I do best.

One more thing, please, please, please check out Karen Walker here. The new range is amazing and although it's winter here don't forget to also look at her sunglasses collection, you will not regret it. Promise.

Hello you gorgeous lot, how was your weekend? So with just over a week till Christmas, I spent mine buying presents and finding some cheeky new bits for myself (obviously). This look was indeed from that trip and I'm rather happy if I'm honest. After searching for the perfect powderblue knit for a month or so I was over the moon to find this bad boy in H&M for a mere £7...bargain right?! They also had them in navy, grey and black so don't be too shocked when you see me in another over the next few weeks!

Successful weekend if you ask me.

I've been aiming to wear today's look for so long, but today's weather has finally enabled me too. Sent to me by the guys at R-A-J-E this dress is perfect for the festive season, as it looks like I'm wrapped up in a huge pretty bow. Teamed with a roll neck and pu trousers to keep me warm and I couldn't be happier.

Inspiration #1

Clockwise L-R: WGSN,  Magazine Tear, COS, Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney SS14.

Whilst at university I use to form more inspiration boards than I can remember and I continue to do so every so often. Although they're not needed in my job on a day to day basis I like to keep my creative mind buzzing, hence I'd thought I would share you what's going on in this little head of mine. For me inspiration can come from all over, but recently the key things that have been influencing me are new fabric and textures.

Iridescent has shot of like a rocket in recent months and this clutch is simply perfection. We all know how I love a good bag and when it's in this fabric and winged whats not to like?! Threaded and cleated sole's have been on my radar for a while now and no one does it better than the queen herself, Stella McCartney. Finally...sleek, simple cuts with an oversized boyish feel are what I've been searching for most this Autumn, with extra large coats and knitwear. Now we run into winter I'm hoping to build layers of mesh and brocade into my wardrobe, just like the Wang and COS have done so effortlessly here.

Is anything inspiring you lately?

So it's 3 weeks till Christmas and the sun was shining yesterday in London. With that in mind I decided to wear my leather playsuit bare legged for my night out in Brixton. It was rather chilly if I'm honest and probably not the best idea considering it is December and the midst of winter...however it was perfect for a night dancing in a club. 

How's everyones weekend been?

Happy December All and hello! So over the past few weeks I've been a little bit of a jet setter visiting both Hong Kong and New Zealand and I can honestly say it was the best holiday I've EVER had! It was rather warm and so I was able to enjoy a couple more weeks showing of my summer wardrobe before returning to the chill (boy is it cold!).

A quick post to show of this super cute dress from New Zealand brand Glassons which I think you should definitely check out! Retail prices are pretty low and there stuff is bang on trend, which if you ask me is rather perfect.

The name of this post is rather apt. These are in fact my little treasures that I picked up in Primark at weekend. The bargain store is looking SO GOOD at the moment and I literally cannot believe how many amazing things I've picked up recently. The boots were a measly £15 and are great versions of the ever popular vagabond ones we've seen everywhere this season. In addition I snatched up this knitted number, with cocoon sleeves and  a roll neck meaning it is also bang on trend. Winner! ahhhhh Primark, you are good to me.

P.s I'm now away for a couple of weeks so I'll be sure to fill you in on my travels to Hong Kong and New Zealand when I'm back!


Brand Watch | Stolen Girlfriends Club

So I don't know if ya'll know, but this week I am heading to New Zealand via Hong Kong to visit my lovely twin Natalie. She is currently spending her time in Auckland working as a Staff Nurse. As you can imagine I am feeling ECSTATIC at this thought....not only will I see my beloved but I'll also be able to visit the flagship store of one of my favourite brands, which I continue to admire from afar. I first discovered Stolen Girlfriends Club a few years back and ever since I've been pining over items I cannot afford nor access.
What do you think of their latest lookbook? I'm in LOVE.
