Mango Coat

I said previously that this year’s sales for me have been about investment pieces that I can wear time after time – and I think my shopping aim for the year (to control my unruly impulse buying habit) is to give more thoughts to the items I’m purchasing and consider how much use I’ll actually get out of them.

Embracing the January Blues

I don’t know what it is about this particular January that has got me feeling so glum; maybe it’s the fact that I know the next five months of my degree will be the toughest yet, and then I’ll have to face the uncertain road of where to go next and give up living with my best friends and being constantly surrounded by the comfort and support of some great people.

An ode to the colour red

My love for the colour red only seems to increase. Each season I discover new ways to wear it and come across the most amazing statement item that really defines my personal ‘style’ at that time.

The dark nights signify cosy, festive evenings and as long as I’m wrapped up warm I love walking home to my flat past the sparkly shops with that cold, November feel getting me all excited! I’ve already willingly let Bubl√© back into my life to sooth me from uni stress with Christmas cheer, started scouting presents for friends and family and written my list to Santa –¬†here’s a peek at what’s on it…

Humbug

The colour red is still going strong for the season, which I’m super happy about because I’ve just invested in these AMAZING boots from Pull & Bear at ASOS. I’ve never really considered myself a boot kinda gal – I’ve had essential Chelsea boots for colder months and my Doc Martens, but have always played it fairly safe in that aspect, whereas I’m usually quite bold on the footwear front. These little beauties are game changers, though, and I don’t think boots could get much bolder…
