2015 Here We Come!

With 2015 fastly approaching the time has come to make the decision of what to wear. Have you chosen what you will be wearing to see the New Year in?

New Year's Eve Party

Although I will be working on New Years Eve and New Years Day I will be seeing the New Year in with my family and watching Jules Holland’s Hootenanny. What are your plans?

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.

#IMWAYR – Blogmas Day 15

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

Blogmas Day 15 – can you believe it?! December is one of those months that always flies by for me. With all the festivities under way and planning for the actual day this month is one that is maximum stress (on the wallet also!) coupled with enjoyment – the line is fine my friends!

How are you getting on with your December so far?

Reading

Shopaholic, Shopaholic to the Stars, Sophie Kinsella, Books, Women's Fiction, Fiction, Chick Lit, Reading, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

Still listening and I have to say the book has taken a turn for the better. To start with I was slightly irritated but it was my wrapping companion the other night and I really am enjoying the story despite it being über girly – but that is chick lit from Kinsella for you.

This week is the works Christmas party and there are so many options whirring around in my head. Do I wear a skirt and top, dress, trousers? First choice at the moment is skirt and top as there are a few options to choose from. Check out some items that are on the list.

Queens Shell Top, Top, Shell, Black, Monochrome, Fashion, Winter, Christmas, Party, Coast, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

Beauty

Beauty, Skincare, Dry Skin, Skin, Aqueous Cream, Cream, Winter, Eczema, Superdrug

As the cold weather sets in my skin seems to have an attack of the crazies and go back to the times of when I was an infant. It is never fun being lathered in cream in the bath but I am starting to appreciate the cool sensation as an adult. Aqueous cream seems to be the only thing that helps and I got a great deal at Superdrug so bought two big tubs. At £2.99 per tub and buy one get one half price I figured it was silly not to buy two considering the amount I use daily.

Life

Lord of the Rings, LOTR, Vision, Characters

Date night this week was at home this week watching Lord of the Rings – I am eager to watch the films and finish them with thought of understanding a bit more of the Hobbit film number 2. The first Hobbit film was wonderful however I felt a little bit out of the LOTR’s loop! Despite watching them all a couple of times I have never really paid attention. Time to concentrate!

Mine, Yours, Bed, Bedding, Home, Homewares, Blog A Book Etc, Fay, Christmas, Festive

After sleeping with the heating off for the past couple of months there seems to be a build up of mildew by my window so after scrubbing like crazy and warming the place up the room was moved around the sheets changed. In love with these sheets right now – lights went up too but pictures will be up on Instagram this week.

What have you been up to this week?

‘Coast’ing in the Cold – Blogmas Day 11

That’s right it is indeed very cold outside and the later in the day it gets the more the chill sets in. So why not Coast it up in the cold. From jumpers to jackets Coast has it all on offer and despite the weather there are some beautiful pastel shades available to chase away those winter blues.

Check out my favourite items from the autumn/winter line available at Coast right now.

'Coast'ing in the Cold

 

After visiting the press day a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be gifted a card to spend in Coast.

My Two Picks

Coast, A/W14, Autumn, Winter, Fashion, Blogging, Blog A Book Etc, Fay, Tullah Skirt, Skirts, Black, Lace
