Accessories can make or break an outfit, and some outfits just aren’t complete without the perfect complimenting shoes, bag, belt or jewellery.
I love finding great accessories, but one thing I find difficult to come across is a really great belt. I have very few belts at all, meaning I very rarely wear them, but sometimes I just crave a good leather belt to complete an outfit.
I think it’s pretty clear to say that marble is the current ‘in’ print. There is something just so clean and sophisticated about it – you will probably have noticed it popping up more and more, especially on the likes of social media. In fact, Instagram is probably to thank for so many people loving this print, with the perfect flat-lays and crisp, bright-white marble accessories. These are most definitely what caught my eye.
The only thing exciting about peeling out of your cosy warm bed on a freezing winter’s day is the excitement of a little treat in the advent calendar. Now, imagine that little chocolate treat that just about lures you out of hibernation, was a little present; different each day and a complete surprise.
Sounds like the best way to wake up, right? And that’s exactly how all the big brands are planning to build up to Christmas this year. With more alternative advent calendars than ever, you will have a job choosing what exactly you want to wake up to each day! From candles to booze to beauty products, they’ve got you pretty much covered no matter what you’re into. There are so many to choose from, all ranging in price, so you can find the perfect advent calendar to suit you.
I completely love this idea and I am having the hardest time deciding which one I am going to go for, but to help I have compiled a list of a selection of my faves along with their contents – so if you are hoping for your advent treats to be top secret then this is a huge spoiler alert!!
Some of my faves for the month of May.
So life is finally sort of settling back down after my return from holiday. Is it just me or do you find that it always takes a couple of weeks to get back to normal after a vacation? You’d think you can just come back, unpack, do some washing and then you’re done. That’s what I was expecting anyway. Wrong. I have done MANY washes, put all the holiday clothes away (I’m pretty sure I won’t be wearing shorts or bikinis in Manchester anytime soon), then there’s getting back on top of food shopping and the apartment, and probably the hardest thing – going back to work.
So as you may have seen if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, that I bought a few goodies out there from the outlets, and I finally got round to choosing my birthday presents from Jay. You should know that my birthday is in January and we went to Florida in April. So the decision was a hard one! (It was between a handbag, a tattoo and a puppy, so you see my problem.)
Anyway, so i opted for a handbag, and ended up with three! These are my two new Kate Spade beauties…
The things I have been crushing on for the month of February…
So I have been searching for the perfect point. There are some gorgeous ones out there at the moment, but I find a lot of them either A. squash all of my toes so that my foot retains the shape of the shoe when I take them off, B. are so expensive that I would need to re-mortgage my apartment before buying them, and unfortunately I have too much stuff to live in a shoe, or C. Look like old woman shoes. And nobody likes that. Apart from old women.
