Grey Faux Fur Coat inspiration from Primark

Image
At this time of year its perfect to get out your faux fur coats and really wrap up warm.

Each year I love to look for something new but I am reluctant to pay high price tags.

Why?
Some can be so expensive and when you drag them out the dark depths of your cupboards a year later you might have gone off that look.

So this year I purchased my Faux fur from Primark.
Yes Primark!

I am sooooo pleased with my purchase.

I kept dreaming of a dusty pink one but when I set eyes on this light grey I was sold! I have so much grey and I knew I could match it better.

I purchased a size 10 as I like it to be oversized, it has a lovely collar and great length where it covers my behind :)

Some faux fur coats I feel can't really be worn after Christmas (I know its a weird thing to say) but black faux fur to me screams November/ December.

Whereas a lighter colour can take you through to February and gives you a longer life span of wearing it.



For the price I paid I still felt like it was a touch of …

Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea at the Sanderson

Image
I am so happy to finally share the fact that I went to The Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea at the Sanderson!

I have seen so many pictures on Instagram and love following their account - I have been to the Sanderson for Espresso Martinis but really wanted to go for afternoon tea!
I just love going to afternoon tea and recently went to one with my mum but we really wanted to go with my sister and have a girls day out.
My sister booked it and as my mum hasn't been well she explained that we couldn't sit outside (extremely lucky as the temperature plummeted to 4 Celsius!) So the guy promised to have us seated inside and when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised!
We had a private dining area/ it was quite dark (which didn't help with pictures) BUT it was lovely.. dark and cosy and lit with candle light - we felt so privileged to be there.

The staff were incredibly friendly and explained the menu to us and asked about dietary requirements which are very important for me at the mom…

My Luxury Christmas wish list 2017

Image
A few ..... I posted a picture on my Instagram about how much I want the new Gucci Bloom perfume and asked if I should write a Christmas wish list.. so after a few people saying YES.. here I am.. Christmas Wish list 2017!!

Im so excited to write this post as I haven't done a wish list before and I love sharing my finds and my taste with everyone else :)

On The Rox London - Wish List 2017 

1. The newly released Gabrielle perfume by Chanel.

I am crazy about Chanel and when I heard they were releasing a new perfume I couldn't wait.
When I first smelt it I fell in love and drenched myself in the stuff.
I knew it was a winner when a lady 10 minutes later in the queue for coffee asked me what perfume I was wearing because it smelt sooooo good.














2. Gucci Bloom 

Another perfume because Gucci is also one of my favourite designers at the moment and I am so Gucci obsessed.
I love the simplicity of the bottle and the fact its pink would look great on my dressing table.
Most of all I love the…

My Latest bargain over the knee boots from Zara

Image
If you follow me on Instagram or on Twitter you would have seriously realised I am ALL about the over the knee boots this year.

To be honest I love them every autumn/ winter and this is how I have now grown such a large selection of them but I am particularly loving them this year as they have made my maternity look and have kept me feeling like myself yet remaining comfy.

Anyway... recently I find myself stalking Zara website.. like seriously stalking and putting items in my basket but not always necessarily purchasing them - DO you do that? Well I had a pair of OTK boots In my basket but decided I really needed to try them on and at the time they were around £49.99 - I went to Zara and I could believe my eyes they had been reduced to £25.99!
Hence bargain boots!!

These boots slide on with an opening at the ankle for ease.

If you have quite skinny legs they actually stay up!

They have gold details and actually look much more expensive than their current price tag - trust me.

Tale As Old As Time Afternoon Tea at the Town House at the Kensington

Image
Are you a fan of Beauty and The Beast?
Yes me too!

Earlier this year I heard there was going to be a themed afternoon tea in London to celebrate the re release of Beauty and the Beast. To say I was excited is an understatement.

I absolutely love afternoon tea and I love to try ones with a twist.

When I first found out the tea was sold out I was devastated but I kept checking the website and seriously perseverance paid off... it was February and I bagged my slot for November! crazy I know but definitely worth the wait.



I arrived with my mum on a beautiful crisp cold sunny Monday afternoon greeted by the doorman at our taxi and from that moment on it was truly magical.

 The outside was pretty with a traditional old bicycle and on either side of the entrance bay trees and seating for guests to enjoy the gorgeous Kensington surroundings.
The doorman didn't mind taking a few snaps for us either!





After a few hundred photos outside we were guided to the lobby where we sat in front of a f…

The Jumper Dress Autumn Edit

Image
Its Officially the last weekend of Summer with the clocks going back and last week I heard that the temperature was going to drop - Finally!
(Since being pregnant I have felt so hot and have been longing for cooler days and they are finally here)

In anticipation of the cooler weather I purchased two oversized jumper dresses and have patiently waited to wear them and all of a sudden I had a Jumper dress themed weekend so decided to write about both rather than create two blog posts.

Saturdays Style 
This jumper is from H&M and was purchased for under £30.

Its Charcoal colour and is available in other colours but I find darker colours are much easier to mix and match and style.

The is one of my favourite maternity styles without being "maternity wear". Its just a regular oversized jumper and I have bought it 2 sizes bigger than what I would usually wear.

The arms are baggy and it has a loose rolled neck, its super comfy and also not too thick.

Items like this is great to l…
