Christmas times

Hope you all had a lovely christmas guys! I spent my time relaxing with the family and eating way too much. Those of you who work in retail will know that christmas time can be just too manic, and you don't feel like you've had a chance to actually enjoy the holidays. So it was really nice just to chill and spend time doing nothing.

I recieved some lovely presents from family and friends, and feel so blessed. I cannot wait to go and spend the Topshop vouchers,I have had my eye on some bits for a while now so they will go to good use. I have also been lusting after the Lauren Conrad book for ages, she's such a babe and i'm already getting into it.

How did you spend your christmas, what were your favourite presents?

Mini haul: Primark & Monki

So I decided to my very last minute christmas shopping and look what happens. I just cannot resist getting distracted and shopping for myself! Does anyone else have this problem?

Jumper, Shirt and Purse all from Monki

 Monki has gradually become one of my favourite shops, I always find some really cool bits in there. I have the red version of this shirt and couldn't resist getting the blue one. I picked this jumper up after seeing someone working in the store wearing it with a while collared shirt underneath. I cannot get enough of cosy knits at the moment,

bag, coat and bed set all Primark.
Necklace- Accessorize

 I went to the new Primark in Tottenham court road,Although it was busy, there space to shop and look around. As much as I love Primark, the Marble Arch store can often put me off as it's literally always manic. I loveee this coat, i've been looking for a grey one for ages. It fits slightly oversized (mine is a size 10) so I would suggest possibly trying on a size smaller. I had to get this bed set, it's so pretty and i've just recently got a double bed so need some new sheets. I.had to pick up a cheeky little Yankee candle too, it smells amazing!

Hope everyone isn't rushing around too much before christmas, it always seems to come around so quick!

The perfect party season piece: Louise Thompson for Goddiva

Bonjour! Sorry for the lack of posts recently, it get's so hard to post sometimes when you're working constantly and especially when it gets dark so early.

Aaanyyway a few weeks ago I attended my first pr event, the launch of Louise Thompsons line for Goddiva. I was so happy to be invited, and the evening definately didn't dissapoint. The event was located at The Mayfair Exchange, a lovely bar just off of Bond st. I met Jem and Lauren when waiting outside and they were such nice girls! On arrival we were greeted with champagne and yummy food as we began chatting away to other bloggers.

Many of you will know Louise for being in the show Made In Chelsea. I think she's got a really cool style, which shows through many of the pieces from the collection. It was nice to meet her in person, and hear a bit about how the collection came about. She admitted that although she didn't design the collection herself, she had a very strong influence in deciding the detailling of each piece, adding her personal style into them.  

It was so lovely to meet other bloggers, they were all awesome girls and hopefully will be seeing them again. I met the gorgeous Arabella, I have read and loved her blog for ages, so it was nice to get to meet her in person. We all kindly got the oppertunity to try on and take home a piece from the collection, I chose this gorgeous beige dress (worn above). It's such a classic style which i'm sure I will wear again and again. I also have my eye on this glitter dress possibly for New years eve. You should definately take a look at the full collection, there really are some gorgeous party pieces perfect for a special occasion.

We also recieved these fabolous gift bags filled with lots of wonderful beauty bits.

Thanks Red Hot Pr and Goddiva for a lovely evening!
