Trends: Baroque, Brocade & Jaquard

Hi All!!

One of the latest trends has got to be any of the Baroque, Brocade or Jaquard designed pieces on the high street at the moment. Anything that makes you look and feel like a million dollars; indulge yourself in foil colours such as golds, silvers and purples. As stated on

'Look no further than gilded brocade for some serious opulence'

Here are some items I picked out...

What do you think of this trend?

The Blogsale List

Hi All!!

Just wanted to quickly point you in the direction of a blog I recently got in contact with; Steven at The Blogsale List advised me that he would be happy to list my recent blog sale on his own blog as this is what it was dedicated to.

I jumped at the chance as it is great exposure; you can see my sale here. I will be having more sales in the future but I thought it was a great idea to let you all know that you too can have your sales listed somewhere other then your own blog. And if you are interested in browsing others blog sales then feel free to visit!

I hope you either sell some items or catch some bargains!!


Spartoo Wishlist: Steve Madden Heels

Hi All!

The most recent item on my wishlist has got to be these stunning Steve Madden heels that has caught my eye on Spartoo. Take a peek at these...

A big price label goes with them but what else is there to be expected with these high end heels? They are described as 'minimalist yet very glamorous' by the team at Spartoo and I have to agree. Such simple shoes with an amazing platform, high heels and made from lush suede leather.

It's not very often that I state shoes can be a great investment to a wardrobe; usually I buy heels because i'm far too greedy. But I could definatley see these setting off many oufits on a night out or even just a visit to the cinema.. any excuse to wear them.

Another great find on Spartoo and anyone gets these heels will be a very lucky girl!


Outfit of the Night

Hi All!!

I went out this week and here is my outfit.......

Dress: Motel
Heels: Barratts


Update: Just Dance 2

Hi All!!

Earlier this month you may remember I was given the opportunity to go to The Clothes Show & Dance Show Live in Birmingham; the tickets were provided by the team at Just Dance 2. I had a brilliant time and loved the dance area... although alot smaller then the clothes show I hope this section grows as the years pass by.

The kids at the dance show loved playing Just Dance 2 and I can see why, it's such a fun game and I know a fair few people who play it often.

I wanted to update you all on the great success that this new game has had since its release date.....

♥ Topped the Wii charts for a whopping 9 weeks in a row

♥ Won the BAFTA Kids vote for 'Best Video Game'

I wish the team great success in the future and thank them again for the tickets.

Spartoo Review: Timeless

Hi All!!

This is my most recent review of a gifted item received by the team at Spartoo and the brand which is Timeless. This is another brand which I was unaware of until Spartoo contacted me but they have a fair few items that may interest a few of you; and all reasonable prices which you can view here.

As predicted in a previous post I was very keen on adding the Timeless Galileo heels to my shoe collection. So when given my next opportunity I decided to order them......

Despite the delayed deliveries that a lot of people have been affected by the weather conditions, my shoes arrived on time as usual so I had no touble here.

Here is the hot pink box it arrived in a long with another order of which I will be posting about very soon. As described in my previous post they are the example of the description I gave of the perfect 'Little Black Heels' that suit me....

They are very comfortable and I have recently worn them out to a meal. Just the right height for a smart casual outfit as well as an evening outfit I am very happy. I doubt I will wear these heels all the time though, they are definately special occasion heels. I think it's nice to keep a few items back that you don't want to over wear and possibly ruin. So I will be keeping these in mind for NYE maybe?

Look out for a outfit of the day post very soon with me wearing these heels! And also a review on the Converse Chuck Taylors that Richard himself will be reviewing!


My Christmas 2010

Hi All!!!

First of all I want to say I haven't been able to post much over the last week or so and I apologise for this. I have not had much access to my laptop and with the Christmas holiday I have been a very busy bee. I wish you all a very belated Merry Christmas to my followers and fellow bloggers! I hope you all had a brilliant day, were given wonderful gifts and ate until your heart was content.

I had an amazing day spent with both sides of my family plus my boyfriends family. It's always a busy day for me travelling to house to house for gift swapping and even sometimes two christmas dinners!!! I ended up with a bloated tummy by 10pm and ending up having a nap before continuing to enjoy what was left of the day.

I wasn't expecting much for Christmas but I did ask for two items:
1. A new wardrobe: as my old one could not hold out for much longer and I needed one much bigger!

2. A bunny rabbit: I've always had rabbits and was gutted when my last one ran away! (Trust me he was not eaten by foxes it snowed when he went missing) I love rabbits as pets they have such great characters and sooo cute!!

Luckily I received both....

Her name at the moment it Missy, I'm not 100% sure if this is what I want to call her but i'll let you all know if I do change it. She is settling in nicely and even my cat Gizmo is getting along with her; although there is some drama with Missy using his litter tray aswell as her own.

For the moment she is living in my room until the weather warms up, I am due to get her an indoor rabbit cage but she is how she lives....

Not so fun for me though haha! You can also see my huge wardrobe in these photos.

I also wanted to show you the new shoes I was given cause we all love shoes....

River Island Shoe boots

Barratts Heels

River Island Boots

And finally a canvass photo Richard did for me of my best modelling images to date ready for when we hopefully move in together in 2011...

So again I hope you all had a brill day and had great gifts! I love mine :o)

Outfit of the Night: Work Xmas Party Dress

Hi All!!
Last night I attended my works christmas party at The Grove Hotel. I was such a fun night with posh food, free drinks and great music. I really wanted to make an effort so I decided to get a floor length dress for the event and here is what I wore....


If you are looking for a evening gown or many other items this website has it all for great prices and low cost in shipping! They are all shipped from China but just imagine getting a gown like this in the UK you would probably see it priced at £100+

Here are some pics from the night...

Hope you liked!

Outfit of the Night

Hi All!!

As I was out this weekend you know I had to show you what I wore....

Dress: River Island
Boots: Miss Diva
Thigh band: Boot

I bet you're all wondering why I have feathers around my thigh. Well it's something new that I will be doing, I briefly saw a photographic shot of a model wearing jewellery around her thigh. So I am trying out the trend.

I actually always used to tie scarves around my ankles a few years ago, so I might start doing it again. It's not to everyones liking but I like it :o)

Heres some more shots of the night.....


Spartoo Spotlight: Little Black Heels

Hi All!!

Many of you may still be on the prowl for the perfect party dresses for both Christmas & New Years Eve celebrations. And if you are still on the search for these then it's quite possible you may still be looking for the heels to match.

Looking through the Spartoo website I had this idea in mind and thought it best I show you some gorgeous little black heels... lets face it these heels can go with almost any outfit you may eventually choose.

My take on this style of black heel is that I like the idea of crisp, clean and classic styles. But far from boring, they must have that little bit of extra detailing which I am sure you all agree with.

Take a peek at these......

I must say I am a big fan of the Timeless Galileo heels, I can just see myself wearing them with so many different outfits!

I'm sure you will find something to suit your own style just click here and let me know if you do!

Clothes & Dance Show Live 2010

Hi All!!

I was given the fantastic opportunity to be gifted with some tickets from Just Dance 2 to go to the Clothes Show Live this year. I really appreciated this a jumped on the chance of being able to attend. I was not planning on going to the event this year but was delightful to be given the chance.

What was interesting too is that this year the dance show was running along side it. This part of the event was directed towards dancers and people interested in the arts which was a different take on the show. It was however very fitting with the fact that the fashion show they present to the fashion goers as they always have dancers aswell as models perform on the catwalk.

The fashion show was brilliant this year and none other then Gok Wan presented.....

After the show instead of getting straight to the shopping we went over the the Dance section as it was new to me. I have been to the show around five times previously so I knew exactly what to expect. But over in the the dance area the new game 'Just dance 2' was being promoted and was available for people to test out. I have played the first game and reaaly enjoyed it but have not tried out the second. I didn't however have a go but saw a few people trying it out and it looked like fun...

There were groups performing, unforunately I can't remember this girl groups name but they did a great job....

When we did get a chance to do some shopping I bought the fella a vintage sheep skin jacket for xmas - which he begged me to buy for him! Yes he came with me!! And I got myself some boot hugs but not for the purpose they are meant for....

Look out for a post dedicated to these soon!
Did you go to the clothes show this year? If so what did you think and what did you buy?
