If you want to save pennies this year but can’t quite kick your shopping habits (I am trying to cut down on buying so many clothes but it’s proving difficult) then I have discovered the best site. This does all the hard work for you by hunting out the latest bargains in the sale and displays all the deals in categories such as women’s sale jackets or women’s sale jeans. It means searching for a particular product is easier than ever and you don’t have to trawl the shops rummaging through sale racks. What could be better?!

This weather only calls for one thing….knitwear, knitwear and more knitwear! In my opinion you cannot have enough winter woolies in your wardrobe. I know everyone is different but I don’t tend to really get cold legs so by balancing it all out and wearing a chunky knit on the top half, it means I can bear my legs during the colder months. The cosy roll neck and boots (with thick socks, a good pair of socks really does keep you warm) means I can still wear cute items such as this snake print skirt without catching frostbite. I actually really love a jumper and skirt combo, it mixes things up as I get so bored with wearing jeans sometimes. You can always tucker a sweater into a leather skirt for a more cinched in waist, feminin shape, I personally like a baggy jumper over the skirt but you can totally mix it up.

I got sent this cute jumper to style up from the kind people at Romwe. I love its simple cable knit print and tiny coloured flecks running throughout. I would usually wear this in a super casual way but I decided to mix it up a bit and go for something different. 

I went for some faux leather trousers (admittedly these are a bit big for me now, I haven’t worn them in a while so it’s time to buy a new pair I think) to give the look a bit of a twist. The faux leather adds a real tough edge to the overall look, the same way that throwing a leather jacket over a girly dress really changes the dynamic. I still kept the look casual by wearing simple converse kicks and since it has suddenly turned pretty icy cold out I snuggled up with the oversize khaki scarf (probably my favourite scarf at the moment, it’s huge!). I added my double compartment shoulder bag and natural, minimal make up. 

My hair is almost all washed out now except for a few sections still clinging on to the purple. I am undecided whether to go all over purple again or jut let it keep fading back to blonde and stay that way. Let me know your thoughts!

As you would have seen from the high street, Christmas was made for glitter, sequins and anything sparkly. I headed out on Christmas eve with the girls for a few drinks to celebrate Christmas and have a catch up before the family festivities began and you didn’t leave the house for at least 48 hours. I wanted to dress up a bit as it was Christmas Eve and if you can’t get dolled up a bit more than normal to head to the pub then when can you? I got this amazing glitter thread plunge bodysuit a few days earlier after seeing it look fab in a picture of someone else wearing it and with the help of a friend (thanks Kneller) tracking it down. The photos don’t really do it justice, it has a small diamond pattern all over which is stitched in silver metallic thread.

Happy New Year my lovely readers!! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and lots of New Year celebrations with all your family and friends. I had the nicest break with my family, got some amazing prezzies, ate LOTS of food and caught up with my lovely friends over the festive period too.

I received this gorge dress from Shein a couple of weeks ago and have been waiting to get it up on the blog but the weather hasn’t been the most pleasant lately. How nice is the criss cross detail and low cut front? Something a bit different to a normal tunic dress. It’s probably a dress I will get so much more wear out of in the summer when I’m in my second home, Greece.

Guess Smartwatch

I was offered the chance to try out the new smartwatch from Guess, as a girl on the go with a busy lifestyle I thought this would be well worth it so I didn’t constantly need my phone in my hand. Updating my social channels constantly to keep up with my blog and answering tweets, comments and emails can be hard and things can easily be missed due to my phone being in my bag when I am out and about. This watch changed all that! It meant I could keep up with everything and stay on top of my workload. This watch does just about everything you would want a smart watch to do as well as keeping the watch element of it as the main aspect, these are fashionable as well as functional which you don’t really get with some of the other smart watches around.

Whether you are out Christmas eve, Christmas day or saving it all till New Year’s Eve you will want to look your best. If there is one time of year you can wear as many sequins and sparkles as you can get your hands on, it’s December. This dress has such a wow factor with its bright gold hue and all over sequin detail, it is the one you need to be wearing over the festive period.

Time To Sparkle

Christmas is all about sparkles and glitter and anything that remotely shimmers. Since I was feeling the Christmas spirit I dug out this top which is a golden oldie (dyu like what I did there?) but it’s one of my festive favourites. The gold sequins stand out no matter what, you can’t really be missed in this number but the back has an extra special touch with a low cut v. As you all know so well I adore a backless top and this isn’t just for the summer months. The top is quite out there and can be worn on a night out which I did recently with these jeans, peep toe lace up boots and a leather jacket. I wanted to show this doesn’t have to be just for more glam looks so I teamed it up with these amazing leopard faux pony hair flats and this gorgeous and toasty aviator jacket.
