Silver Frost

What I'm Wearing: Vintage Fur Coat, Topshop Sweater, MissGuided Kitty Skater Skirt, H&M Necklace, Kurt Geiger 'Vera' Boots

You can always tell its winter when the fur, cashmere and tights are whipped out. Today was certainly one of those days. Barely reaching zero degrees, it was a tremendous struggle to pull myself out from under my duvet this morning. But, I just love fresh footprints in the frosty grass, which make a gorgeous crunching sound as you walk. This metallic skirt from Miss Guided is perfect for crisp winter days and can't wait to wear it with a cropped tee and some killer heels this weekend. And it's finally here! Hope you all have a great weekend!


Get Your Christmas Jumper Freak On

It would be an understatement to say it is bitterly cold outside. With about 1000 layers on and looking rather like a yeti I am still freeeeezing - I do not know how the Eskimo's do it! In an attempt to warm up and getting even more into the festive spirit I have compiled a list of my favourite Christmas jumpers available both on an off the high-street. 

First and foremost, ask grandma to knit you one - that is if your grandma fits into the stereotype of the cute little knitting old lady full of wise old tales who repeats herself every now and then. However if your grandma does not fit into this category then there is always option 2 - buy your own! Sadly this wont mean that you have a one of a kind unique Christmas jumper hand knitted out of the kindness of your grandmothers's heart, but if she isn't the greatest of knitter's maybe thats a good thing?

I have always looked in vintage stores for similar grandma specials and I managed to pick up this beauty last year (below) from Birmingham's vintage emporium 'Cow' who had rails and rails of all sorts of festive-wear. If you are in the area, be sure to check it out (click here).

Next best thing to vintage store finds is ebay. Cute and 'vintage-esque' sweaters with embarrassingly sweet motifs on the front, they are just too hard to resist. Ebay seller 'VintageUnit' has hit the nail on the head with these festive numbers coming in over 20 different colour and design combinations there is bound to be one to delight you inner Christmas child. And coming in a mere £20 - what a bargain (click here to get yours)!

For your inner Santa, this designer number from Lot78 is on the top of all fashionistia's wish list, not only perfect for the party season but the Ho! Ho! Ho! intarsia design is a winner especially snuggled in front of the fire. £220 from Net-A-Porter (click here).

Now if you're feeling pretty generous this Christmas, splash out on this sparkly number from Meadham Kirchhoff and you'd look as pretty as the angel on the top of your tree. At £945 from Net-A-Porter (click here) I think it's going on my 'wish and never actually be able to ever afford list'.

For all you Scrooge's out there, who are anti all things cheery and bright, this sweater from Zoe Karssen is the must have sweater. £95 from Net-A-Porter, you can share your 'Bah Humbug' feelings with all those that catch a glimpse of cute pop print slogan (click here).

If you like keeping thing simple amongst the glitter and sparkles, this snowflake sequin jumper from Next is perfect and is subtle enough to keep wearing long after the Christmas festivities. £32 from Next (click here).

If waiting under the mistletoe to be kissed is your plan this Christmas, this cute holly jumper will certain fit the bill. £50 from Topshop in a gorgeous angora blend you will be a walking snuggle magnet (click here)

If you're just way too cool to wear any form of fairisle or polar bear motif, then this all over crystal jumper is just the thing. Looking like you fill the 'Christmas' jumper criteria over the festive period, but just rocking some serious jumper bling the rest of the year, this is the perfect jumper to carry you from season to season. £50 from Topshop (click here).

For your inner toff and if you love to steal your boyfriends jumpers then this cream fairsile knit from Aubin & Wills is for you. Being a men's jumper naturally makes it oversized and perfect with some cable knit leggings. Already in the pre-Christmas sale for £119 (click here) it is hard to resist (maybe buy it for him and secretly keep it for yourself!? - he doesn't need to know).

Lastly from my newly discovered favourite online store in the whole wide world, Nasty Gal, this gorgeous oversized knit sweater is on the top of my Christmas list. I never often wear red but 'Hey! It's Christmas' and I can't wait to throw this amazing jumper on, on Christmas day and see what Santa has put under the tree for me! £70.54 from Nasty Gal (click here).

Which are going on your Christmas list this year?



Everyone needs that bit of sparkle in their life, especially in the lead up to Christmas, and I'm getting my fix with these lurex numbers. A sparkly thread sewn into any garment gives it that almost metallic and oh so expensive feel, so naturally I can't get enough. My friends call me a magpie as I'm always drawn to anything that glitters or sparkles and they were certainly right with this knit dress. So comfy yet chic at the same time, definitely got my hands on a winner. Have you guys bought any lurex pieces for this upcoming party season?


Tell Me About It, Stud

What I'm Wearing: Versace for H&M Leather Jacket, Karl Berdine Shirt, French Connection Moire Trousers, Furla Candy Bag & Isabel Marant Sneakers.

It is a very rare occasion to see these steps not covered in people. Much like the steps of the Met in New York, people flock to fill every square inch at lunch time sipping on coffee, biting into sandwiches and perhaps even delving into the rare yogurt cup too (sorry about the Gossip Girl reference, I had a bit of a marathon yesterday and still rather obsessed). Black and white is such a great look and works no matter what pieces you combine. Ever since I got this jacket last year it has literally not left my side, and I love to watch peoples reactions when they see it. The subtle nods of people showing their appreciation, to the downright stares from those who think I look slightly like a disco ball, either way it is my go-to jacket to wear, whenever and wherever I feel. 

Emergency Compliment

Work getting you down, Christmas shopping all getting a bit too much, or just suffering from Monday blues, well I have found just the thing to properly sort out these seasonal woes. Emergency compliment is the highly addictive go to website for that little pick-me-up and remind you that you truly are amazing! And if one complement wasn't enough, it will continue to throw great comments your way until your back on your A-game. 

I have picked out a couple of my favourites that put that smile back on its rightful place. But lets face it, pretty much all of them made me giggle a little.

Even better news! If you really love the complement that hits the spot, you can order it in your very own print, from Society6, simply by pressing the "Thanks! I feel better" icon at the bottom of the complement. Or if you are already feeling pretty on top of the world, you can submit your own complements to share this wonderful feeling.

Lets face it, this website should only be used in extreme emergencies, as we can't really deal with tonnes of big headed people now can we?

Anyway, be sure to check it out for that little pick me up, and let me know which are your favourite! 


Christmas Nail Inspiration

With Thanksgivings out of the way, it is now completely and officially Christmas season. TV is covered in Christmas ad campaigns and chockablock with festive movies, supermarkets stocked full with mince pies, and city streets alight in the glow of Christmas decorations. It really is the best time of year and I can't help but get totally and completely obsessed with it for the month leading up to the big day. When getting into the Christmas spirit, where better to start than Christmas nails. Gold leaf, foil, glitter, nail art, it is the one time of year that almost anything goes and the more OTT you go, the better. Here are some festive nail ideas that I can't wait to try over the holiday period.

Khaki in Vogue

I picked up this top at Vogue's Fashion Night Out (click here) earlier this year and have yet had the opportunity to wear it. Wearing simple items with pretty accessories is always such a style winner for me and this bejewelled collar from Monki fits that brief perfectly. A dash of glitz and glam without being too OTT. WOO HOO! The weekend is finally here! Cannot wait to put on my dancing shoes and party the night away! What are you all up to this weekend?
