The Christmas Gift Guide..

..It’s that time of year again, before we allow ourselves to get too excited over vats of mulled wine and too many mince pies we desperately try to conjure up the perfect gift ideas for all of our loved ones.
Fear not last-minute shoppers, I know its now mid-December and you still haven’t bought anything more than the wrapping paper – but I’ve got your back. I’ve tried my hardest to cater for every single lady in your life for all budgets. Its a fairly long one so grab a cuppa and let your finger do all of the hard work. (PS – if you haven’t even bought the wrapping paper yet, I have one word – ELFRIDGES – where all the little Selfridges elves do the hard work for you. Get on it.)c600x600First up; the shoe lover. When she tears open the wrapping paper to a perfect brown box with the word Louboutin emblazed across it her christmas has already been made. With one of these classic beauties inside you’ve already made her year; (clockwise from top) Pigalle 120mm pumps, Pigalle 120mm spiked pumps, So Kate 120mm pumps, Lady Peep 150mm Black Patent Platform Pumps (the next pair on my wishlist) or go all-out, decorated with spikes. If she has Louboutin tastes but you’ve got a Topshop budget, these strappy beauties are perfect. If she already has more dancing shoes than there are nights in December, go for a chic pair of Michael Kors ankle boots. If she has as wild side, these are AMAZING. If your really stuck, girls always love Choo’s. Especially with glitter. I love these Anouk Glitter finished pumps.

For the make-up maven who believes she’s tried everything, turn to one of the amazing palettes that have been released this festive season. NARS have set the bar as per usual with a selection of gorgeous stocking fillers; Adult Content Blush Palette, Promiscuous Lip Pencil set, God Created the Woman Smoky Eye Palette, One Night Stand Blush Palette and the Douceurs de Paris Eyeshadows. Bobbi Brown always provide a fail-safe Secret Santa with a selection of make-up books to suit all ages and abilities, gorgeous brush sets and a ton of beautiful palettes. If your still stuck, the MAC holiday collection palettes are amazing this year, and I love these cute dinky little Laura Mercier sets, they have nude, pretty and smoky palettes on offer at Space NK.

Rosie for Autograph..


Ask any girl who loves clothes how much she loves underwear. The right underwear with any particular outfit is crucial to finishing off the look to perfection, as Coco Chanel once said; “it should appear that you are naked beneath your clothes”. For the last year Miss Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been creating the most beautiful vintage inspired lingerie sold in your Mums favourite local M&S, that not only look seamless and flattering beneath all manner of clothes, but make you feel beautifully feminine and sexy from within.


A new collection launches each season and I always end up scooping most of it up, I seriously cant get enough. The latest collection for Fall brings the two-piece sets, silky teddy’s and fabulous prints we’ve come to love but with the introduction of beautiful soft cup lace bras and a fabulous grey silk pyjamas that will give your £350 pair of Olivia Von Halle sleepers a run for their money.


The full collection is available here, with a full set of smalls for about £35, up to £89 for the silk pyjamas. If you’ve tried anything from the range before, I’m certain you’ll agree the quality is true of a set four times the price.

Five Things..

..Another week, another round up of instagram snaps from along the way;


I cant help stopping and staring at stunning bouquets on the roadside of our local florists, the summer always brings the most beautiful flowers out.


After a few too many drinks on Saturday night, my skin was desperate for some TLC and a decent sleep. The Super Facialist Tea Flower Pore Purifying Clay Mask (which is amazing to use once a week) and a good night sleep had my face back to its previous state come Monday morning.


Sunshine and almost anything make a pretty good combination. Sunshine and a fruit-filled glass of Pimms is literally a little glass of heaven.


Testing out some amazing new products at the office while skimming my way over the delicious images in an old French Vogue made for a very pleasant Monday.
