Christmas Party Time – Blogmas Day 18

Yes people we all know it is almost ‘that’ time of year again and once again we are all preening for Christmas Party time to end the season for work and let the family time commence – well for some. For once I am in this bracket as I have Christmas off and will be spending it at home (family away and himself by my side!). Whilst I long for that special day of snuggling up with the dogs at our feet and watching old movies whilst getting merry I am also getting very excited about my work Christmas party this week. Now I have already put up pictures of what my christmas outfit choices are. However I thought it would only be right to put together a ‘dream’ christmas party look. Check it out and let me know what you think.

From the selection above I think my favourite items would be . . .

– Christian Louboutin T-Bar Nude Shoes

– Coast Dress

– Chanel Bag

– NARS Lipstick

Each item could be dressed up and down for many more occasions which is also an added bonus!

PRESS DAY: Coast S/S ’15 – Blogmas Day 5

From 60’s Monochrome to Luminous Blooms the Coast Spring/Summer 2015 collection is truly inspiring. Not only does it make me wish away the cold weather and days of needing a scarf and wooly hat with cute matching mittens but it makes me want to wear the fabulous garments IN the cold weather and find an equally fabulous coat to cover up.

With femininity at the forefront of this collection the intricate lace designs and delicate embellishments showcase key trends for the new season. Let us not forget the bursts of colour alongside the strict monochrome designs just to add a bit of order to the flirtatious feel of the dramatic yet nostalgic compilation.

Check out my photos from the day and judge for yourself

Books, Reading, It's Monday What Are You Reading?, #IMWAYR,

It’s Monday peeps! How was your weekend?
From friends birthday celebrations to maximum relaxation my weekend was great.

Let’s get on with it! 

Wearing

Russell & Bromley, Boots, Shoes, Fashion, Winter,

These beauties have been on my list for quite some time. If you fancy a pair get them HERE.

Ray Bans, Scarf, Zara, Accessories, Winter, Fashion, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

On the odd day that I had off and managed to get around Central I chose to wrap up warm but take my sunnies as there were some stray rays about. Contact lenses at the ready and I was away!

Using

MAC, Gently Off Eye & Lip Make Up Remover, Make Up Remover, Eye Make Up Remover, Lip Make Up Remover, Make Up, Beauty, Cosmetics, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

This product is one of the staples in my collection of cosmetics and cleansers. It is so gentle on the skin and leaves no dryness post application. It has had a little more air time than usual as I have been donning the darker shades of lipstick and need to remove them so I don’t end up with unsightly staining. You can grab a bottle HERE.

NARS, Audacious Lip Collection, Bette, Lip Stick, Satin, Red, Autumn, Winter, Beauty, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

Speaking of the darker shades this beauty is from the NARS Audacious Lip Collection, it was also my first step onto the NARS bandwagon that I am finding increasingly difficult to get off. Their colours are just so gorgeous!

Watched

Movies, Dumb & Dumber To, Dumb & Dumber 2, Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Comedy, Cinema, Movies, Entertainment, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

Not as funny as the first movie – but that is only my opinion. Still hilarious however!

The Flash, Superhero, TV Series, TV, DC, DC Comics, Comics, The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon Cooper, Barry Allen, Fastest Man Alive, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

After watching the first episode on Sky 1 I am absolutely hooked and find myself linking up to the states just to get my hit every week. Most definitely worth the watch especially if you like superheros! Geeking out over here and having far to many fangirl moments – well more than I would like to admit anyway 🙂

Reading

Finished

Yet another triumph from Sylvia Day – check out my review HERE

A bit of a slow starter – that is all I can say for now.
Look out for the review on Wednesday 3rd December.

Currently Reading

Foxglove Summer, Ben Aaronovitch, Fiction, Books, Reading, London, Rivers of London, The Folly

Ben Aaronovitch’s writing style is truly stellar and the series of books starting with Rivers of London are spectacular.
I was one happy reader when this one was sent through. Check out his books either on Amazon or The Folly.

Over the next couple of weeks I will be busy with events and getting ready for Christmas of course. This year I plan to be a lot more organised than last but who knows what will happen. My book selection might also change (only slightly) to those more on the academic side as I am studying for something important.

What have you been up to this week?

It's Monday but it's ok

This set of beauties are my picks for essential go to products during fashion week. Now some may think that there are items that are slightly older than others, however classics never really go out of style. Comfort and style are a must when you are traipsing around shows and trying to keep your eye out for that one piece that really stands out. I have yet to have my New York Fashion Week debut however I am sure I will get there one day! Heading for London Fashion Week may be a bit more achievable for now!
There are so many collections out there of what to wear and how to wear it and some items are truly fabulous. Keep your eyes peeled like I am and grab hold of those wardrobe staples as Winter is just around the corner. From Primark to AARK there is such a grand selection out there.

What will you choose?
