Workwear That Works For you











I've never had an office job where I've had to dress in a suit everyday, but I have dabbed in a few jobs where I could dress smart casual. I found that it was really easy for me to start incorporating a few different pieces into my wardrobe for work, while still being able to wear the items on days where I don't want to dress far too smart.

Take for instant this shirt. It's quirky, yet smart. For those who work in an office, this look great with smart trousers and a blazer, and those like me can style it with a pair of skinny jeans and a leather jacket for the perfect day to day outfit.

When it comes to these heels, I don't know where to start. They were an impulse buy a few weeks back. One Thursday night, while in central london trekking around event after event, the shoes that I was wearing (which I've worn about twenty times before) were giving me the worlds worst blisters...on BOTH feet. And after searching for Boots to find blister plasters, I gave up and popped into one on the Zara's on Oxford Street and knew they would be perfect as they were able to slightly brush over the blisters and let me party all night long! 

Although they were a lot higher than the initial pair of heels, they were super comfortable, and matched my outfit perfectly. They are also really easy to dress up for events, work, meetings, and dress down with a pair of black jeans.

How do you incorporate smart/ workwear into your wardrobe?

Double The Denim





So it's cold. Like really REALLY cold. And I can't stand it. Granted, I should have stopped wearing cropped tops but in my defence, it's long sleeves, and I thought it was longer when I bought it.
With all the glam outfits, I thought it was time to slot in another casual look for all my jean lovers out there. Jeans are just so simple, and can work with anything you chuck at it.

I've teamed these jeans with another denim jacket with shearling as it's so toasty and cute. I would have rather gone for a few sizes larger as I would be able to layer a lot more and it would have a more chic relaxed look.

What do you think?

Beauty Bay Black Friday Black Out








If there's anything better than a Friday is Black Friday! Last year I focused on clothing, but I have seen myself drawn more and more to beauty and make up products as the year has progressed. I have teamed up with Beauty Bay as they are offering UP TO 30% off from today until Monday 28th November.

Ever since Beauty Bay launched, it has been my go to for make up as they stock some of the most sought after products a girl or guy could dream of.

Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to start getting your Christmas presents all ready so make sure you visit Beauty Bay now to get your hands on the biggest beauty deal of the year! Did I mention that they offer FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING for any order over £15!

The products that I have chosen are products that are relatively hard to find anywhere else. Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting Highlighter (20% off) is a three in one, it can be used as a primer, highlighter or an all over illuminator. 

Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer (20% off) has been raved about all over the blogsphere. It is also another product that has many uses. It can be used as a foundation, concealer or a highlighter. As it is quite a thick formula, I will be using this under my eyes to conceal the dark circles under my eyes.

The next product is Pur Cosmetics Eye Polish In Cashmere (30% off). I chose quite a light universal colour so that I can use is as an eyelid primer, or a top coat colour. It is great to add a pop of colour on your eyes and are an extremely blendable formula. I have never seen anything like this product before.  

Finally I went for a classic product in the beauty scene, the Antipodes Grace Gentle Cream Cleanser 120ml (30% off). I am yet to try anything from Antipodes but I have been on the hunt for a good organic face cleanser for a while.

Up to 30% off means you have the option to try new brands you haven't been able to try before. I would love to see what items you all purchase with the Beauty Bay Blackout!

A VERY Merry Christmas












When I think of Christmas, the colour red, sequins and a whole lot of sass come to mind. There's something about this time of the year that puts everyone in a more cheerful mood while making them want to get a little more dressed up than normal. And so far, I am feeling very sassy and very Christmasy and it's still November. 

With my evenings currently being filled with Christmas parties, I thought it was about time I brought some festive looks to the blog. I've never been one who is loud and flamboyant, so I tend to keep my outfits a little reigned in. That is until the Christmas parties come around, and all I want to do is dress up like a disco ball. 

That said, I feel like sequins can either look really good or really bad. There's a thin line that you have to walk over carefully. I have decided to rein my outfit in by keeping all the accessories black suede. I feel like suede is softer and can help mute an otherwise over the top outfit. I have also added a leather jacket, as leather jackets are one of my party essentials. It works great with any outfit and can be worn day to night.

 One thing that I really like about Very is that it is a one stop online retailer. They have everything from clothing to accessories and it's so handy to pick yourself an outfit while also doing your Christmas shop for others.

How To Wear Neutrals With Designer Exchange














One thing that you all know about me is that I am a sucker for Designer Bags. I love mixing high street with high end accessories. I feel like it ties an entire outfit together and makes the overall outfit look a lot more expensive than it actually is.

But designer does not have to be super expensive. I have already mentioned this brand before here, but since then I have gained a huge number of new readers and followers and thought I would reintroduce the brand as they have rebranded.

Designer Exchange is perfect for someone starting out buying designer or if you are looking to change the bags in your wardrobe. If you have a designer bag that you no longer love, you can pop into any of their six stores and exchange or sell your used bag. The team at Designer Exchange have gone through so much training and can spot a fake designer bag a mile away! They then put the bag for sale and any one can purchase online or in store.

I was very kindly gifted a voucher that I could redeem against any of the bags/accessories on the Designer Exchange website or stores. I decided to go for this Dior Miss Dior Promenade Pouch, Pink Lambskin. I have a few day bags so I wanted something that was more of an evening bag, with the option to use during the day. It's small, elegant and such a classic. I'm obsessed.

The condition of my Dior bag at first glance is perfect. After a little assistance in the Knightsbridge store I was told about the small scratch on the bag of the bag and the discolouration of the leather where the chain had been sitting. But after inspection, it was all I wanted so I preceded. When buying a used/second hand/vintage whatever you like to call it bag, you must be open and aware that the bag may not be in pristine condition.

I know a few people will be a little put off by the thought of buying a designer bag second hand, but as I mentioned before, the team are so well trained, and prices reflect the condition of the bag. You are able to buy bags for £150, all the way up to over £7000 for a Hermes. Whatever your budget, you're sure to find something you will like.

I decided to go for quite a neutral top, I feel like wearing colours in a similar colour palette can be quite sexy and can even be classy. I've left my shirt half buttoned giving a bit of depth to look look as the coat is oversized. 

Would you ever consider buying a second hand designer bag?
