Elinna over the knee boots from Aldo

Image
To say I am a boot lover is an understatement, I'm one of those people that adores winter for the sheer fact I can glam it up with OTK boots and I do exactly that every year.

I love to invest in OTK boots every year as they are a classic trend and I just love everything about them.

My latest edition are these beauties from Aldo.

So stunning, elegant and rich in colour they really are a winter wardrobe staple and if you treat them well they will last a few years.

The colour I have are "Bordeaux" which is a gorgeous deep red.




These boots sit over you knee, they have a flat heel and zips at the ankle for ease when putting them on.

I love to wear them mainly with tight fitting dresses and skirts with or without tights.

This particular colour is my favourite winter colour.

Reasons to purchase Elinna boots from Aldo:

1. Stunning statement boots.
2. Comes in 4 colours BUT the pair I have is my favorite.
3. They sit over the knee and have a girly touch.
4. Suede style is classi…

Caudalie Beauty Elixir face mist

Image
A couple of weeks ago It was announced I as a winner of a competition ran on Twitter and I won a gorgeous bottle of Caudalie Beauty Elixir.. I was soooo excited for it to arrive as everyone raves about it and it is deemed "The secret of make-up artists"

The one I received is a special edition and the packaging is just so pretty.

How to apply:

I applied the spray just before I moisturise, although your face feels slightly wet it dry very quickly.

On application a lovely aroma surrounds your face and I just feel instantly revived.

You can also apply later in the day to keep your makeup refreshed.

The spray is a great beauty secret and I feel so lucky to be a proud owner if it.

Not only does the spray help to set makeup, it also gives a boost of radiance, tightens your pores and smooths away fine lines.

I love the fact it is 100% natural ingredients and paraben free - suitable for all skin types.

You can purchase a bottle in 30ml or 100ml.

When I wore it I wore skinny jeans and riding boots but there's nothing stopping me from wearing them with skinny jeans and a pair of heels for a casual night out.

This lounge suit could be a serious game changer for your wardrobe and not just for this season!

Lounge suits are timeless and this one from Bowsboutiques.com is the perfect combo of stylish and comfort. By the way I love both aspects.

I have bought a couple of tracksuits this year but they tend to look super casual and sometimes I want to feel comfy but still look stylish.

It comes as a two piece suit, it's soft and elasicated.


The top is oversized and the bottoms are tightly fitted and has a popper button on the sleeves and a cluster of popper buttons down each side of the top which is lovely added detail to the lounge suit.



When I wore my lounge suit I wanted to look a little rock chic so I wore studded biker boots and a black choker.

Lipsticks are seriously my guilty pleasure... I feel I just can't get enough of them... Especially KIKO Milano lipsticks.

My recent find is "Velvet Passion" matte lipstick - I absolutely LOVE the name.

It comes in a aluminium and rose gold packaging which I adore... Rose gold seems to be Popular amongst beauty brands and their packaging.

The end of the lipstick has been carefully designed for easy application which I find quite interesting as I haven't had a lipstick shaped liked this yet.




The colour really grabbed me - it's dark and mysterious, it's matte and has a slight shade of berry.

It completed my outfit well and was perfect on a sunny winters day.

Nicia Suedette Pocket Side lace up mini skirt from Boohoo.com

Image
Lately I have found I have a paticular style I like to wear at the weekends... Mini skirts, oversized jumpers, knee boots and my maxi duster.

With this in mind I have only 2 mini skirts I currently own and really want to expand my collection,

I opted for this skirt from Boohoo.com and to be n
Honest it was something out if my comfort zone.

I know it's currently hot to wear lace up skirts, or lace up anything in fact... So I thought I would order it and give it a go and yes I kept it, it was a huge success.


The skirt sits high waisted, it has a zip on the side and a lace up front, oversized pockets and suedette feel in a gorgeous burgundy/ berry colour.

I purchased the skirt in a UK size 10 as I wanted it to be a little loose rather than a tight mini skirt, also this helps to have more room on the waist when I tuck oversized jumpers into the skirt.

Black Leather - Look Riding Boots from New Look

Image
In the last few weeks I have been on a "Boot Hunt" not a bear hunt... A boot hunt! I have been searching EVERYWHERE to find the perfect winter boots.

You may think I couldn't possibly need anymore boots and yes I agree but these aren't for any old reason, these are for work.. So it's acceptable to own another pair, right? ( I keep telling myself that anyway).

I had certain requirements the boots had to for fill:
- warm
- knee length / just under
- comfy
- black
- fit my legs
- reasonable price

Guess what? These boots ticked every requirement!




I absolutely fell in love, these boots are jet black leather look with gold buckle details.
The gold buckle at the top of the boots helps to adjust the size/ width of the boot which is great for me as my legs sometimes look silly in boots as they are quite skinny.

They have a zip on the inner side so you can put them on with ease and elastocated back.

Riding boots are a classic style and sometimes with my work style I like …

The "Lula dress" from Chi Chi London

Image
Eeeeeek Party season is upon us and its time to get glam ready!

I have been extremely lucky to receive such a gorgeous dress from the beautiful Chi Chi London.
I have previously blogged about a stunning bridesmaid dress I wore in October and here I am blogging about another stunning dress.

This time the occasion was different... It was time to dress up and party and I felt quite the party princess.

This dress is full of stunning features from the beautiful delicate lace front and back, the navy silky feel, full of pleats and the netting underneath to give it a gorgeous shape.


It goes in at the waist and flares out just like a princess!

It has a side zip which helps you get into the dress and keeps the dress fitted.
I am a UK size 8/10 and the 8 fitted me well.


The dress is so pretty, looks delicate and is quite a statement.

This time I wore gold heels and a berry shade lipstick - I think navy and shades of berry really work well together and it was great combo for a party at this time…

Furry Pom Pom and embellished hat by Primark

Image
The days are definitely getting colder and now I just want to wrap up warm and feel all snuggled... That's what winter and winter clothes are all about.

There is nothing better than warm oversized jumpers and large fleecy blankets, roaring fires and of course your trusty winter hat.

I haven't always been a massive hat Fan but over the last year I am slowly becoming addicted... Yes another addiction to add to the long list.

This weekend I didn't set out to get a hat but came across one that really caught my eye and after I popped it on my head, pranced in front of the mirror I then joined many other people in the the que and it was all mine.



The hat is grey and black, it has embellishment and the largest Pom Pom.

Naturally I couldn't wait to wear it the next day and teamed it with mainly black and my OTK grey boots.

Why should you head straight to Primark?

1. Excellent value for money.
2. Classic colours.
3. The biggest Pom Pom and embellishment makes it a statement ha…

Roberta ruffle layered crochet blouse from Bows Boutiques

Image
If there's one thing I really really love... It's ruffles! I am seriously mad about them. They are girly, fun and pretty. Sometimes I feel I don't wear enough girly clothes as I like to keep my style simple and elegant.

This top is from the lovely Bows Botiques and is full of ruffles - I just couldn't resist!!


The top is totally versatile - I wore it to Afternoon tea with tight black leggings and black boots but this top would also be perfect for nights out with a black pencil skirt and black heels.

I definately recommend you wear something tight on your bottom half as the top is fairly loose and full of big ruffles.

I am a UK size 8/10 and I wore the 8/10 size and it fit me perfectly.

At the front the ruffles stop the top from being see through but at the back the top is plain (no ruffles) and you can slightly see your skin/ black bra straps through the crochet.
But be reassured it's not obvious /not that see through and still classy.

The top flares out and has g…

Kimmie floral embroidered rib jumper from Bows Boutiques

Image
Trending right now is all things embroidery, on dresses, jeans, boots, tops, bags...the list doesn't stop!

I have really embraced this trend and every time I see something new I really want it.. I am trying not to go too overboard but it is proving to be hard.

My latest addition to my embroidery collection is this gorgeous jumper from Bows Boutiques.

It's absolutely stunning - the floral detail of colours - green, red, blush pink and nude are a great contrast on the black jumper.



The extra special detail for me was the faux pearls and diamonds that are intwined with the embroidery design..

The embroidery isn't all over the jumper which is nice as sometimes having too much makes it more difficult to style.

 The jumper has a lovely round neck, ribbed and baggy oversized style, it can be worn slightly off the shoulder.

It's great to wear with a pair of jeans and boots to look smart casj at the weekend OR can be worn for a dinner date with faux leather trousers and strapp…

The trousers would also look great with a oversized chunky knit and flat studded boots, the beauty of these trousers is that you can literally wear and style the, how YOU like.
