It's the weekend ... Finally! I can't believe the first week of December is over already. The days fly in so quickly these days! I am very excited to team up with DressLily.com to give one of my lucky readers the choice of any DressLily.com product up to $15 from this particular section of DressLily. Their collection is fabulous and very reasonably priced. My favourite products are as above in this week's wishlist. You can enter to win your DressLily product using the widget below - Good Luck:
Today, I wanted to showcase my favourite blue Barbour jacket. I got this jacket a couple of years ago and it is my go to jacket for all casual outfits. The jacket is still available in Barbour's range, I presume this is because it is so popular. I love that it goes so great with my blue hat and scarf - It is the perfect winter combo for a cold frosty day and can also be worn all year long if you stay in a cooler climate!
Hello everyone! I am absolutely loving getting use out of my flat equestrian style boots again (in case you haven't already noticed). They are so comfy and are easily styled too! Autumn/Winter is the perfect time to get booted up although I fear the snow is on the horizon and I will be hunting the ol' wellington boots out soon enough - the weather forecast is not looking the best. Does anyone have any snow yet?
I wanted to showcase my cherries t-shirt that I bought whilst on holiday in Ibiza. The cherries will be well known to a lot of clubbers as the trademarked logo of the dance brand Pacha. They currently have a sale on with lots of fab markdowns. It's a good chance to grab some Christmas gifts for the clubbers in your family :)
Happy December everyone! December is a really cold month in Scotland and it is the perfect opportunity to hunt out your furry hood coats and your matching scarves and hats. One of my favourite colours is wine, I love the deep mahogany tones of the colour and it is perfect for the festive period. Have you all finished your Christmas shopping yet? Or are you like me and haven't even thought about it yet? I always tend to leave things to the last minute and my Christmas shopping is no exception. The plan was to make use of the Thanksgiving/Black Friday sales but I instead got side tracked and made no purchases ... well that's a lie, I bought a dress for myself but no gifts came to fruition!! However, that said, Cyber Monday sales start today and I am going to be organised and save on my gifts this year with all the fabulous deals. Looking at some of the crazy offers, I would go as far to say some of them are even better than the Black Friday sales ... Crazy right?!! I'm glad I waited :)
I have compiled a list of the best Cyber Monday deals (in my opinion) below ... Tis the season to save :
My latest beauty haul was two lipsticks from Revlon's Super Lustrous range. I chose the colours, Revlon Red and Berry Couture (haute in the US). I had been looking for a red colour for a while and there happened to be a promotion on so I also picked up the purple-pink Berry Couture (haute in the US). I am very happy with the purchases, there is a lot of pigmentation in these lipsticks and you get a really good colour. As you can see from the last photograph, they are so pigmented that they can stain your lips ... you will be able to see the after effects of the berry lipstick which was removed with make up remover prior to applying the red. I can't wait to test them on a night out .. especially the red :) Enjoy your weekend everyone!
Happy Friday everyone! Boy am I glad for the weekend, it has been a stressful week. I hope all my US readers had an amazing Thanksgiving holiday. Black Friday sales in the United States have always been one of the most craziest sales of the year, often making headlines!! This year, the UK has adopted Black Friday sales and I couldn't believe some of the crazy stories I read on the Daily Mail website today. Black Friday mania has truly landed this side of the pond. I have put together a holiday gift guide using Black Friday sales both in the US and the UK. All the US stores also ship to the UK and vice versa!
Express Black Friday 50% Off EVERYTHING 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6
Happy Hump Day! Express are having a pre-black friday sale and are offering 50% off EVERYTHING to their lucky shoppers. They ship internationally too .. Woohoo!! Finally us UK shoppers can grab some of those awesome US deals. The offer is running up until noon (us time) on Friday when their Black Friday sale kicks in which I believe is not as great as the 50% off everything!! Now is definitely the time to shop if you are heading to Express. Have a great Thanksgiving to all my US readers :)
How many of us have wanted to change our hair colour maybe temporarily or maybe permanently but have been scared to? What if you wanted a change simply for a night out or maybe for fancy dress? I had never considered the prospect of a wig before and I wasn't sure if other people would know it was a wig. Psychologically, because I knew it was a wig, would everyone else know? Well I put the theory to the test and I can tell you right now, that no one realised it was a wig! I fooled at least 15 different people including friends (including best friends), males/females, work colleagues and no one knew.
I had been thinking of a Kim K style colour for a while but was too scared to go from brunette to that blonde colour in case it looked awful. The wig was therefore a great idea to give it a bash. I had so many nice comments that now I am thinking about changing it for real!
The wig I am wearing is from an online store called Wonderland Wigs and it is incredibly easy to get on, taking only a matter of minutes to straighten out etc. The hair can get quite tangly but after a quick brush, its silky smooth again. It is synthetic hair so you can't straighten or curl which is a bit of a bind but Wonderland stocks many different styles and lengths in every colour of the rainbow, even green!!! The wigs are very reasonably priced too so you can easily stock up and build a collection of styles and colours.
It was a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quick change or some extra fun on a night out.
Here are a couple of my instagram photos having fun with the wig:
