George Christmas Bloggers Christmas George Christmas event George Christmas George Christmas bloggers George Christmas event George blogger event

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to attend George's Christmas Blogger Event. This was exciting enough in itself... but when I heard it was at the Shangri La I was MEGA excited. If you've not heard of it beforem it's the hotel in The Shard. Needless to say, the place was absolute luxury. I arrived in a bit of a gross, stressed flap straight from work (George HQ near Leicester!).But I felt immediately chilled... yet warmed by the toilet seats... (they were heated... yep..!)

The food was the snazziest I have ever seen in my little life. Such a treat! And the company was just as great. Then came the pressies! I recieved a box with a fab, bright Christmas jumper and winter accessories. You can see myself and Emma with our matching clobber above! We also revieved a George Home package - I am SO in love with the faux fur throw, I instagramed it here.

Of course, we all wore George to the event. The gorgeous blue jumpsuit I wore is finally back in stock - you can get it in blue here and in black here. For £20, it's a real must have.

I also attended the George SS15 Press Day the week before, I vlogged the day and you can watch it on my YouTube channel- get a bit of a preview of what's coming next year! Some major bargains to keep your peepers peeled for...

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE! Enjoy the festivities tomorrow all <3

Even though I did the equivalent of Supermarket Sweep in grabbing all of my Christmas presents this year (one shop, lots of manic trolley stuffing - job done!), I still feel stressed as ever. One of my stresses (which thank Jeez, is now over) was finding my Chirstmas party outfit.

I'm not actually a big one for glitz - although you might think otherwise looking at the dress and shoes here! So, although oddly for me I fell in love with these beaded heels on the spot, I was really unsure about the dress. It was a bit of a panic purchase!

Props to Topshop. The dress is incredible quality. Non scratchy - HOORAY FOR FELTY SEQUINS! Comfortable (it's fully lined). Simple. Easy to pair with anything. I'm not the biggest fan of exposed zips, but I let this one slide..!

(FYI - I'm actually selling the dress on Depop now as I don't need it anymore! Username RobynMayday)

Would love to know what you guys wore / are wearing to your Christmas parties! Glad mine is done with as now I can focus on the best part of Christmas - pigging out (oink).

You've got to love a good playsuit - I don't wear them often, but after wearing this silky number from Ark, I feel like I need more in my wardrobe! Given the gross weather, I paired it with some opaque tights, a jacket and leather knee highs. But it would be equally fab for a night out.

I actually took these photos last weekend (blogger fail). My hair is now back to being light pink for a couple of weeks. I've missed having colourful hair! Have a peek at it here on my instagram. Oh and currently lol-ing at my chubby cheeks in the first photo. I look a bit like I've just had some reaaaal good cake (although I hadn't - I wish!).

With the chill quick approaching, I've started getting my good old Toppers teddy coat out again. It's potentially the best coat in the universe. Oh snuggly goodness. These Primark shoes are increds. I think they were only £14 and they also sell them in black too!

Ark have some fab new dresses in for the season - this one is no exception. Perfect for work or the weekend - it can be worn smart or casual. It's well fitted too! It's slightly loose, but doesn't make me look like a sack of potatoes. Ideal.

Anyhow, back to sipping my Chocolate Orange Tea..., yes, you heard me! (From the Shambles in York)

I don't often wear dresses - let alone bodycons! So donning this bad boy was a bit of a novelty (/slightly scary) for me! Got to say, the fit, fabric and cut is just incredible. It really is a ten times better than any bodycon dresses I've ever laid hands on before. Plus, you've got to love a classic LBD. It's defo a good buy as we're approaching pard-ay season!

This faux fur clutch was actually made by me - oh look at me being all Blue Peterish. You can see how I made it here. £30 for a Toppers faux fur clutch - mine only coast me about £7! If you like to pretend you're crafty too, go watch the video :)

Jeez it's getting cold! We've actually turned the heating on this week - confirming it's definitely time to get my coat on! To be honest, not too sure how I managed wearing a skirt last weekend with these Converse... 

Cloggs challenged a group of bloggers to personalise a pair of white Converse. I decided to attempt a bit of a henna-style design. As I'm not very artistically skilled this was a hilarious challenge. Thank god for Google images...!

Looking forward to seeing what other bloggers have created too - must say doing this took me back to drawing in biro all over my first pairs of Converse. What a rebel. My Mum must have been so impressed... hope you prefer these ones Mum!

It's been a while guys! I just got back from a mega-relaxing holiday in Tenerife hence the photos in the sunshine on a balcony here. If only this were the UK eh?!

Anyway onto the important things. First off. This incredible Marc Jacobs clutch, which TK Maxx currently have online for £19.99. Kid ya not. It's real leather and super shiny gold. I got mine in store where the cashier told me they've had silver ones in from time to time too... Tellin' you now, if I see a silver one I will 100% nab that baby too! Grab one for yourself before they're gone.

This jumpsuit is so comfortable and has a perfect print. The colours really flatter and the wide legs and loose belly area are rather kind on the holiday chub - wahoo. I grabbed this for a measly £16.99 online a few weeks back - sadly I can't find it now. But it seems like a wholesale piece, so wouldn't be suprised if other retailers have it too.

Bleedy heck I'm writing a lot. Talk about blog-deprived. I'll leave you to it now. Enough rambling. 
I'll post some more holiday snaps soon!

Look at these snazzy sandal-y boot hybrid things! I've spotted a few bloggers wearing similar shoes and whilst browsing Clarks saw that they had these in both burgundy and black. Inevitably, as I wear black all too much, I went for black leather. They've got a really unusual heel as well, but are easy to walk in fortunately!

I love a good printed tee, so when I spotted this Zoe Karessen tank in TK Maxx I had to have it. It's ideal for warm weather (despite it looking pretty dingy in these photos, believe it or not it was pretty clammy outside!).

I'm off to the east coast for the weekend - please, please weather, be good to me. It's supposed to rain. Although to be fair, as long as I win a purple minion on a grabby machine in an arcade I'll be happy even if it tips it down!

I can't lie. I've been going a bit crazy buying garbs recently. Alas, I've had no time to blog about them! Zara has been on fireeee with their sale. Don't know about you guys but I've grabbed some incredible steals there over the past couple of weeks. These two Zara numbers here being my faves of the bunch. I love the combo of navy and orange too - hence showing off weird yet wonderful culottes and bold bag!

What do you guys make of this cute little Marc by Marc Jacobs bracelet too? It's such a cute little piece - simple but it still stands out. It also became the perfect excuse to grab some Marc Jacobs sunnies on the weekend...! Oh how I love finding an excuse to buy new stuff. I got probelms.

Jumpsuits are definitely one of my go-tos at the mo. Kind of like going out in a onesie (comfy and little effort needed), but they tend to be pretty flattering too!

This Hidden Fashion number is a gem. Perfect for nights out or even if you want to look snazzy in the daytime. Plus, it's only £8.99 - total bargain!

Just a quick post today as I've got a busy weekend ahead - enjoy the sunshine fellow Brits!

£24, £10

A few weeks back I was invited to pop along to a nearby Boux Avenue store for a bra fitting. Now, I've got to say, I'm buy my bras from M&S religiously. I'm a bit of an odd size, so they've really been the only retailer to offer affordable awkward sizes on the high-street for a while. But when I browsed the Boux site I was pleasantly surprised - plenty of awkwardly sized bras at very fair prices!

First off, the store was really beautiful, with a real boutique feel. The staff were also fab - especially Kiran who did my fitting. She picked out several options for me in summery shades. I opted to go for an underwear set, despite the bikinis looking fantastic! After trying a few styles on, the Cheska bra was the best style for me. Needless to say, this pastel yellow shade is spot on for the season! 

If like me you're looking to branch out from your usual undie shops, Boux is certainly worth browsing. And don't forget to check out their swimwear range too!
