Shake your Tailfeather


Cracking out the tassels like the true SeƱorita that you are seems to be the trend this season, and the minute I laid my eyes on this Whistles skirt I fell. in. love. The thing about Whistles is everything is designed with easy wearing in mind, and this skirt (be it as tassel-tastic as it is) is surprisingly easy to wear. Want to jazz it up a little for the office? Do it! Heading to a bar for some food and a catch up? It's got your back! Night on the town? You got it! Pair tassels with a blazer for some extra sassy-sass.
This blazer is from F&F and I kid you not, my best quality (and best priced) pieces are all F&F! I occasionally check their site when I grow tired of my usual go-to shopping websites and every time I find myself an amazing bargain that I can't get enough of, and this jacket is that piece this season!

Black Friday with Boohoo

boohoo black friday

Black Friday is looming and to get you all ready, I styled up an all black outfit with Boohoo.com in preparation for some sale madness! For my all black outfit I went with a bit of lazy tailoring, pairing some tailored flares (a slight nod to the 70s trend) with an oversized shirt half tucked half not (because who needs to decide when you can have the best of both worlds?)
Make sure you sign up to Boohoo's newsletter at the bottom of their homepage at Boohoo.com to make sure you don't miss out the Black Friday madness!

The Suede Trench

suede trench coat

Do you ever create your ideal garment in your head before even knowing it exists and then you just have to have it? That's exactly what happened with this trench. Upon wearing the rest of this outfit to work one day, I immediately knew what was missing - a burgundy suede trench - and voila, Rare London just so happened to have exactly what I was looking for *insert hallelujah emoji here*.
A good trench coat is a wardrobe must all year round, particularly in the UK, so shaking it up with a new fabric definitely never hurt nobody, in fact, can I just take every colour please?

Mercury

how to wear glitter trousers

If you're going to dress it down, you may as well do it the right way - take these glitter/metallic trousers for example. Tailored, sparkly, but subtle enough to team with a cozy knit without looking too Freddy Mercury for the daytime. And you can probably guess i'm really feeling the split sleeve knits from H&M this season, but there's just something about the little knitwear update that I can't resist!

Shades of Grey

knitted co-ord

The knitted co-ord: most definitely the most desirable co-ord of this season with the high street offering up everything from chunky sweats, knitted tshirts, cable knit flares to merino pencil skirts.. What a time to be alive! I remember seeing those hugely oversized knitted trousers paired with a matching (also extremely oversized) jumper parade down the runway at The Row's A/W14 show and I actually thought it was a little crazy - 'how would that even work? the knit will definitely go baggy? isn't knitwear on the bottom half just hugely impractical?' were my exact thoughts upon seeing them... And despite each of these questions, here we are today fully embracing the wonders that is the knitted co-ord - including myself. Being a lazy Brit who as much as she loves the winter hates the cold, cozying up is a must and plodding around in layers worthy of climbing Mount Everest is a huge no-no - so for me, the thought of knitting myself into a giant cashmere ball and still being on trend is the best feeling ever. Praise the Olsens.

Look Fantastic November 2015 Beauty Box #LFBEAUTYBOX

look fantastic november beauty box 2015


The closer we get to Christmas, the better the #LFBEAUTYBOX gets, and this month is my all-time fave. It might have something to do with the fact that i'm a total lipstick addict and they just so happen to have thrown one in there this time around, but it could also do with the fact that every single product in there is just as fabulous as the other. The thing about pre-packed surprises is that there's never a complete guarantee that you'll like every item in there, but Look Fantastic seem to have a 'What a girl wants' genius behind their Beauty Boxes that hits the spot every month. This month features a universal shade of red lipstick, a lip and cheek tint, and a hair mask - along with a few other extremely useable products for the coming month. Get your box here!

Dual Ponyskin

glitter jumper

Glitter knits and faux animal skin textures - a match made in fashion cupid's heaven... Who would have known it? There was a time, not too many years ago where the thought of sparkle would have made me sick to my stomach, but this year's sparkle reworked has a hold on me, and we probably have Christopher Kane and Saint Laurent to thank for that... But more than anyone else, we should thank H&M for gracing us with this Christopher Kane dupe - with the slight addition of the split sleeve which is to diiiiiie for! Bravo, H&M, bravo!

#MakeYourMark Mark Hill launch event

mark hill hair products

A few weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of heading to the outstanding W Hotel on Leicester Square with the girls and meeting the even more outstanding Mark Hill at his event to celebrate the launch of his new collection of hair products (recently launched in Boots) - and with his own hair being as impeccable as it is, it's hard not to trust and love his products.  
From products to give your hair the perfect wave, the right amount of bounce, or the sleekest blow-dry in town (my personal faves? The Volume Spray Mousse, Perfecting Blow Dry spray and Wave texture spray), Mark's latest collection has you covered - and they make perfect Christmas gifts, what more could you ask for? Here's a cheeky, sneaky peek of his latest range...

White Hot

how to wear white trousers

Wearing any kind of white after September is risking, never mind a double helping of the shade in November, but there's something just so chic about wearing white that makes it hard to avoid - especially in the winter when it looks far less 'I summer in the Hamptons'. Throw on a big chunky white knit for an instant cool-girl-keeping-warm vibe.

Rare London LFW Dinner @ The Charlotte Street Hotel

charlotte street hotel review

LFW is well and truly over for 2015, but to send the season out on a high note, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Rare London event and treated to an amazing meal and the fabulous company of Sophie, Charlotte, Sarah and Sophie. On entering The Charlotte Street hotel I immediately had Insta-fever - the place is so boutique and pretty, with outside being painted Duck Egg and the interiors having a decadent, British touch - not to mention our ever 'Instagrammable' table for the night (what more could a blogger want?!)
I'm usually a fairly fussy eater, but in this kind of place it was so hard to be, knowing that whatever landed on my table in front of me was going to be delicious - so for starters I opted for the tomato and mozzarella with balsamic sauce, followed by the steak as a main. I was actually previous to this a steak virgin being a vegetarian most of my life until recent years, but I have to say for a first ever steak (which I had plain as i'm allergic to bearnaise sauce) it was delicious
Thank you so much to Rare London and Label PR for a great night!

The Robe Coat

H&M coat

Made famous by the likes of Max Mara and Celine, the robe coat is each year the most desirable and luckily, each year, the most copied on the high street - and thank the heavens for H&M! I picked this one up for less than £25 during H&M's student discount week with Myunidays and it's quickly pawed it's way to becoming my favourite coat in my collection. Hooray for bargains!
And the glitter boots... The perfect way to jazz up the most boring of outfits with one simple touch. You couldn't get more 70s, and thanks to Hedi Slimane these glam rock inspired babies are around the high street today, gracing my shoe cupboard just like they were destined to. It was love at first sight - right there in ASOS's press showroom.
