Beauty Advent calendars are something I was aware of but hadn’t realised just how many brands had jumped on the bandwagon. Everyone from department stores to luxury brands to high street labels now have their own version. This will be the first year I’m going to invest in one (or two or maybe three!) and thought I’d share my comprehensive research in case anyone else is confused and undecided.
So this is a very different post for me; it is far more personal than anything I've put on That New Dress but it's something I really want to talk about and get other people's opinions on. It is no secret I am single and so here is my problem, according to many of my contemporaries being 26 and single is a rather sorry state of affairs. Read more
I am very lucky that Simba is able to come to pretty much everywhere with me. He comes to the office with me, meetings, restaurants, shops, you name it little Simba is by my side. London is becoming more and more of a dog friendly city. So I thought I'd give you a little run down to having a dog in London. Read more
There is no denying I'm a nosy person! I'm a big fan of the What's in my bag... blogpost as it gives us all a chance to delve into something that is usually a private and personal part of a woman's life. People are always telling me I have such a heavy bag and asking me what on earth is in there!? So here is my first ever version of this popular post...
You may recognise these rather gorgeous booties from my August Wish List post which you can read HERE.... Yup I treated myself to them! Check out how I'm styling them and if they are worth the hype.
Recently I've been complaining to my friends no end about how I can never find anything I want in Topshop anymore. However, this was about to change due to the brilliant final reductions in their sale.... and you know me and a sale!! Read more
So I recently purchased my first Markus Lupfer jumper. I cannot tell you how long I have wanted one for.... I mean pretty much forever!! It took me a while to take the plunge so if you want to know whether it was worth the wait read on! Read more
This month I splurged on the 3 most popular beauty boxes in the UK – Glossybox, Birchbox and Love Me Beauty. I wanted to do a comparison between the three and put to rest once and for all which is the best. This is a prettttyyy long post so you might want to grab a cup of tea and a biscuit!
Thursday 8th August saw the global launch of the Banana Republic X Roland Mouret collection. I’m not usually someone that goes for the designer/ high street collaborations, However, I’m obviously a fan of Roland Mouret, I mean who isn’t?? His designs are always classic, sophisticated and stunning, so I had to grab a couple of pieces. Read more
I absolutely swear by a couple of Glamglow’s products. Their Supermud Clearing Treatment and Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment are two of my top beauty must haves. So, I don’t think I have ever been as excited by the launch of a new beauty product as I was the Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment. I had to check it out immediately and share my thoughts on it!
I pined after the Acne Studios Velocite jacket for many years before I finally owned one. Those that know about this coat, are more than aware, the ripple effect it has had on the fashion world. It has been copied and duped by everyone from top-end luxury brands to premium to high street labels. So, the question remains, despite being the ultimate trendsetter, is it worth the hype (and major price tag)? Read more
