Now it's post-Christmas, I've got a fair few gift vouchers that need spending. Oh I do appreciate you Christmas (and family!). So I've been on a small spending spree. To be quite honest, I haven't been bowled over with the Christmas / January sales. I've struggled to find a lot of good stuff, hence the addition of a few non-sale items here! But one cat-tastic thing I did could I resist this t-shirt with cats all over it? For seven quid I had to have it! 

Let me know if you've found any gems in the sales - that's my inner nosey bargain-hunting self striking!

Hello hair in the face. Yeah, I really need a haircut. And guess what? I just had one. Yesterday I said goodbye to a good 3 or 4 inches of hair and it's left my hair looking a gazillion times healthier and back to it's natural thickness. Having coloured my hair for a good 10 years (-eek!) it was much needed!

I've actually been hankering after this jumper for about a month. I spotted it in H&M for a measley £14.99 and resisted. But last week it was reduced to just £7 - HOW COULD I SAY NO?! This blue colour is a winter perfect pastel shade.

These boots are a real bargain too. They're £13.99 and on top of that Hidden Fashion are currently offering free delivery - wowza! They're also selling PVC midi skirts (in pastel blue, here and black, pink and beige, here) at £13.99 too. Grab one quick if you're wanting to jump on that shiny bandwagon!

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas (I'm such a cheeselet. What an opening sentence). Our pressies are under the tree, everywhere and everything is manic and we've just bought in a copious amount of winter cider. Plus it's suddenly gone back to being bleedy cold.

Alas, the cold weather does mean we can wrap up! So when this cosy number made it's way to my door, I zipped myself into it. And oh my... this onesie has been saving me a good few quid in heating! It's really soft inside and even has pockets (ideal). The Christmassy print is also bang on. Although this particular jumpsuit is a bit pricey, there are plainer and cheaper options too that you can see here. It's also genuinely incredible quality and is perfect to wear to bed and lounge around in (especially if you don't have a winter duvet or heat just escapes from your house like mine!).

First week of my new job done and dusted! Currently chilling out with a glass of vino and some (... just 12...) Krispy Kremes. Oh sugar, you delight.
Now, I am a lover of a good novelty jumper, don't get me wrong. But sometimes you just gotta avoid the cheese (sadly, I'm a massive cheese lover. Both the food kind and the kind associated with a particularly undeniably catchy but hideous tune). This ASOS jumper is definitely slap bang within the classy chrimbo jumper category. It's also half price (WHUT?!) and is currently in stock in every size so grab one of these sequined beauties quick! You can see more Christmas-tastic jumpers from ASOS here. You might even find some cheese somewhere.

Can definitely tell I'm tired as I'm sure I've spoken about cheese far too much. Off I pop to bed! x

Bonjour new specs! I'm feeling a bit French (?) in this ensemble. Not too sure why, but I think it's in part down to the glasses. They give off a European vibe of some kind. Anyone wanna join me for croissants and croque-monsieur?

I'm craving more houndstooth garbs after wearing this OASAP top for the first time today. Actually, after a little hunt, I'm lusting after these houndstooth trews in particular. They're exactly the same as the trousers in my last post, just houndstoothy and even more fab. Anyhow, the top is a little on the large side, but looks perfect tucked into high-waisted bottoms (couldn't think of a better way to put that haha - oh immaturity).

I've been snooping the shops for the perfect faux-leather skirt for quite some time now. So when this absolute delight popped up on New Look's site for just £14.99 I was right in there. I did think it might be a terror for VPL, but as it's an a-line shape it's pretty forgiving! I'll definitely be pairing it with tights in future though - brrr!

With Christmas Parties fast approaching, I thought I'd collate a little post with some of my current favourite LBDs (with one playsuit for good measure!). I'm a massive fan of a little black number myself! At Christmas they look fab paired with statement heels and maybe a sequin clutch (I've suddenly got a penchant for sequins by the way.. not sure why as I usually hate anything 'glitzy', but let's just embrace it.)

It's definitely worth noting that the River Island dress is now just £40 (WOWZA. Yes please) so grab it quick as there are only a couple of sizes left!

Also, Missguided are offering 20% off today with free next day delivery until 8pm - check the banner on their site for the code ;)! I'm so tempted - eek!

Have a fab Thursday guys! I start a new job on Monday, so apologies if things are a little quiet over here, but expect to see an outfit post soon! Oh, and you can see the outfit I wore to the ASOS Christmas Party here.

Cut Out Boots | Shoe Zone *

Ahh, yes, more cut out boots. I've been on the lookout for some 'smarter' looking ones, if that makes any sense. These Shoe Zone cut-out numbers were just what I've been looking for. They're only £24.99, but have fab detailing like the gunmetal inset at the front and a super handy zip at the back. No more un-doing fiddly buckles for me - wahey! I also wore these straight away without socks as they have no nasty blister-inducing bits inside them! Good one Shoe Zone!

Here's that Persunmall coat lots of you were lusting after from this post. I've heard that the Primark coat (that looks very similar to this one) has a tendancy to malt a little - so does this one! Nevertheless, it lightens up my frequently dark outfits! It's also quite lightweight so perfect for layering over cosy knits.

As for these new River Island trews, as soon as I tried them on I had to keep them. They fit like a glove (... for legs..?!) and even come with a belt. What a  treat. I don't generally dress this smart to be honest - I'm a notoriously casual dresser! But who knows, maybe you'll be seeing me don a top hat and tux soon. Keep your peepers peeled.

Ahh more autumn cosiness! But before everyone clicks away from this post immediately... I KNOW, I know... those BOOTS. I'm hankering after them madly too.  They're available online very soon, so hold yer horses. Bookmark the page - or better still, if you pop on the product page you can get New Look to email you as soon as they hit the site! Really tempted to get these to set off my all-too-frequent all black outfits! I do get a hospital vibe from them admittedly, but let's call it NHS chic. I love'em.

I recently bought the black version of this furalicious cossack hat (you can see it here in my previous post). These cream mittens would match the hat perfectly. I definitely need some mittens or gloves right now - it's getting pretty nippy out there! 

When I popped into New Look the other day I spotted this grey shearling coat on offer - it's £20 off the original price at the moment. The Chritsmas jumper is another bargain, plus, I think it's quite a cute and modern take on the good old Chrsitmas jumper! 

Finally, these cute little cat print cupcake cases in matching packaging are very me! Plus, I crave cake in cold weather (not sure why, but gotta love cake). As a self-confessed crazy cat lady and cake lover I pretty much need these. Although I'd probaly never use them... they'd be kept for decoration because I'm weird like that.

Let me know if you're crying at the beauty of those boots like me... (sad aren't I).

You can never have too many furry things. I'm a right snuggle bug you see. I spend most evenings sat under a fluffy blanket nestling into the sofa. Larrrveeely. Needless to say, this jacket is so, so me! This isn't just fluffy on the outside... OH NO. The inside is fleecy too! All too dreamy. I've been wearing it (non-stop) instead of wrestling on a big old coat - it's incredibly warm and cosy. Such a perfect buy for this time of year!

I also picked up this Cossack hat from New Look today - it's the cheapest one I've seen around the high street. Now I've got no excuse to complain I'm cold with these new furry buddies of mine. I'm sat here now in the evening whilst I'm writing this still donning the hat and coat... see - I really am wearing these non-stop!

Every coat needs to take heed from this furry number. When I ordered it, I though it'd be more of a shearling-type fabric. But it's actually short faux fur on the inside. Oh my is it warm! There should be a rule to make every coat fur lined. Offttt. That'd be heavenly.

I'm totally obsessed with this polo neck top at the mo - craving more neck hugging items now! It was a total eBay barg that I bought last year and completely forgot about. It's actually meant to be a dress, but at a mighty 5ft 4 it fits me as a top after washing it at 40 (IS THAT SUCH A CRIME?!). Guess I'll remember to wash it at 30 next time or it might turn into a turtle neck thimble or something.

I've also been featured on ASOS Fashion Finder here in the partywear to daywear style challenge along with Carla and Helena! How incredible are our party pieces?! I'll be featuring this rather fabulous bomber jacket that I styled on my blog very, very soon! It's an awesome dupe for the Isabel Marant for H&M jacket, but instead in gold.

Hope you're all liking this new design by the way! Re-vamped it to make it a bit more grown up. Ohh-e!

Harrods Christmas Fashion Wishlist 2013

A Christmassy post. Yes, I went there. There's five and a half(ish) weeks to go until the day with turkey and all the trimmings. Got to say though, I can be a little bah humbug before December hits. I'm really not one for putting a tree up way in advance, or cracking out a Christmas tune before the 1st December. But there's certainly one big old part of Christmas festivities I love and that I'm more than happy to partake in at any time of the year. Shopping.

Now, what better store to focus my ultimate Christmas wishlist on than Harrods? For me, Harrods is incredible for not only it's famous Christmas window displays, but also for the sweet, sweet co-existence of food and clothes in one place. Luxury food + designer clothes = the dream.

Clothing and all things sweet are generally top of my Christmas lists, hence my Harrods picks! My favourite items have to be the black oversized The Row jumper and the Michael Kors bag. They'd look fab together. I love cosy knits as I'm forever complaining I'm cold... and hungry. So if the pretzels can go in the Michael Kors bag - that'd top it all off.
What designer items would be top of your dream Christmas wishlist? Also, if you're planning on popping to the store for some Christmas inspo, I'm so jealous! Darn living in the midlands.

EEEK! That's the only way I can voice my excitement about these boots. They're the comfiest (yet cheapest) cut out boots I own. Compared to my other Topshop pairs these don't rub the back of my heel, so I can actually wear them sockless (if I'm brave enough at this time of year!) Oh and they're oxblood red with gold hardware. Urm, hello coolest cut out boots around!

I also discovered that this dress looks pretty snazzy as a skirt with a jumper layered over it. Seeing as I haven't worn it much recently, I think this will defo be my new way of wearing it. Although, perhaps with tights... when I took these outfit photos yesterday I actually managed to ladder my tights horrendously, hence the bare legs. Best go and buy some new ones before I freeze my butt off.

Words cannot express my adoration for Primark Super High-waisted Jeans. I fell for the blumin' hype around Topshop Jonis last year (love ya Toppers, but those black Jonis aren't your best...) and was pretty dissapointed by them after a few wears. My less-than-brill Joni experience was just with the black pair though; I know people have found other shades to be better fortunately. But I've found a reeeet old gem in Primark with these black skinny jeans. I already had them in navy, but picked them up in black after I gave up with my Joni jeans. 

These Primark babies are just £10 - definitely fashion-blogger-dupe material (or better than dupe..?!) They're not as stretchy as the Topshop Joni jeans and are thicker; although, this comes as a bit of a bonus as they don't go out of shape as rapidly!

Let me know if you've owned either pair of jeans and what you thought of them - always good to hear other people's experiences :)

There are so many gorgeous coats stocked by the likes of Zara and Topshop (my personal fave being these Topshop Teddy Fur Coats. BE. MINE. Please...). Unfortunately I just can't fork out 80 odd squids on such dishy numbers. But, fear not, I've stalked Persunmall to find some absolutely cracking, affordable coats for autumn. These coats range from just £36 (that's near Primark pricing!) to a reasonable £43.

As I'm after a smarter-looking coat at the moment, I think I might have to give one of these a go! Shipping is free if you spend over $50 (that's around £30) and you can use the code in my sidebar to get 10% off an order over $80 too. Keep snug ;)!

Now, I don't think I've ever owned such a flattering dress in my life. Full. Stop. The cut of this In Love With Fashion tea dress is incredibly flattering. It nips in at just the right point and flares out to cover your belly, which, if you've just gorged on brownies like me, is just perfect. It's also made in Britain and is so well made -  for £30 it's really quite a steal! It'll be back in stock in around 2 weeks - if you want to be on it as soon as it comes back, click the 'notify me' button on the product page after selecting your size! There's also an equally fab green tie dye version here.

Today seriously called for opaque tights. Wahh! Is my skin thinning with age or is it flipping freezing outside?! Wouldn't be surprised if I have papery thin skin already. Had a eye test over the weekend and I'm in major need of new specs. Having been longsighted for the past 5 years, I'm now shortsighted. Whut. Why hello AGEING. Should probably go grab some new specs then!
