Daisy London: #MeaningToTheMoment

Hello, I hope everyone's Monday is going as good as it possibly can for a Monday! I wanted to start the week by introducing a fabulous jewellery brand, Daisy London. You may or may not have heard of them but they do gorgeous necklaces, bracelets, rings and more...

Featured above is a bracelet from the Good Karma range, the evil eye has always been one of my favourite symbols and I love the little phrase that goes with it - "May the evil eye guard you from cynical influences". I think it's a really lovely addition and you can find a variety of different symbols on the karma bracelets, I also love the buddha and hand of fatima. If gold isn't your thing then the bracelets also come in silver too, definitely worth having a look at the site what with Christmas looming! You can have a browse of their Christmas catalogue - HERE.

Daisy are currently running a really exciting weekly competition on Instagram. If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning a £100 voucher all you need to do is upload a picture and story of the gift that means most to you (you can be as creative as you like!) and tag Daisy_Jewellery along with the hashtag #MeaningToTheMoment. It doesn't have to be a Daisy piece it can be anything, so what are you waiting for?

Outfit: Blue Vanilla Dip Dye Fur

IMG_6343 IMG_6350 IMG_6373 IMG_6336 IMG_6369 IMG_6374

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. A couple of fab new pieces to show you today, including this insane Almost Famous-esque faux fur jacket. I absolutely love it, the ombre fur is amazing, not to mention how cosy it is! It's from new brand Blue Vanilla, they have loads of gorgeous bits so make sure you check them out. I've featured nANA jUDY on my blog before, they're an ultra cool Australian brand and their latest arrivals section has my DROOLING and longing for summer months again, a holiday will do me. Please? I also dug my Hamilton tote out as the grey tone really complimented the jacket (if I do say so myself) and I forgot how much utter rubbish I can fit in it, I think I'm carrying around about 400 lipsticks and god knows what else...

More from me soon!

Gift Guide #1: Luxury Loungewear

Welcome to my first gift guide of the year, ho ho ho! I'll be posting them every Thursday in the run up to Christmas, if you'd like to see anything specific let me know. First up I thought I would start with some luxury winter warmers, you really can't go wrong here! For those winter nights snuggled up by a roaring fire with a faux fur blanket, comforts are a must. The Warehouse cashmere onesie is to.die.for. I can only imagine how soft and snuggly that bad boy is! Team up with those Next fur trim socks and you're practically a walking duvet. Another favourite of mine is the Rosie for Autograph robe, I really love her range it's full of luxurious looking silks and pretty prints, it is the higher end of the price range but again, it would make a fabulous gift as its most probably not something you would buy for yourself.

I've been really into the White Company at the moment, I get drawn into their stores like a moth to a flame at the moment. I've found as I've got older I've begun to appreciate quality over quantity and boring things like candles, which to me are totally NOT boring anymore! I'll save those for the homewares gift guide though ;). I spotted the hot water bottle cover the other day whilst I was perusing a stand of cashmere socks (god I feel old) and man is that thing soft! They also have plenty of deals going on at the moment, and I'm sure they'll be a discount code or two in the run up to Christmas to help the bank balance a little bit. I hope you enjoyed my first gift guide post! What would you like to see next week?

Outfit: #MyDorothyMoment

IMG_6143 IMG_6095 IMG_6156 IMG_6104 IMG_6180 IMG_6159

I couldn't be more obsessed with pointed shoes at the moment and a pair of black ankle boots is just what I needed so these bad boys tick all the boxes. This post is in collaboration with Dorothy Perkins and their latest campaign which is #MyDorothyMoment. They're currently holding a competition to win a pair of shoes every month for a whole YEAR. Heaven. So if you fancy getting involved upload your #DPShoeSelfie to Instagram (tag me in as I'd love to have a nosey!). For #MyDorothyMoment I chose these boots as like I mentioned, I had a pointed boot shaped hole in my life! The heel means they're perfect for daytime too and nipping out for a spot lunch of lunch...and shopping. You can find more information on the DP Facebook page HERE and the website HERE.

So I better mention the GORGEOUS coat I'm wearing, it's a gooden! I've been searching for the right winter coat for weeks, despite already having too many I feel you have to get at least one new perfect coat a year. Non? On my mental checklist was it must be either grey or camel and preferably a wrap/tie style, et voila. I feel like I'm wearing a snuggly dressing gown and that suits me just fine.

Outfit: Batoko Sweatshirt

IMG_6190 IMG_6207 IMG_6262 IMG_6192 IMG_6253

Hello! Back with an outfit post, finally. Don't you hate wearing a good outfit and not getting to document it haha #bloggerproblems. A simple black and white ensemble is my go-to and I love the slouchy tailored vibe at the moment. Duster jackets are still a key piece in my wardrobe which is probably a good thing seems as I've accumulated about five thousand. I recently discovered online shop Batoko and I love their slogan tees and sweaters, I think I should definitely invest in the 'pizza is my bae' one - so appropriate for a pizza addict like myself. 

In terms of life, not much to report on. Just trying to keep afloat in the fiery hell that is third year of uni. I am having a weekend off from work though, I'm just about to pop out for lunch and yesterday I went to the garden centre to check out the Christmas display which is obviously an important event in my winter calendar haha.
