It’s that time of year… party season… and that means sequin season! Time to decorate yourself in as much shimmering clothing as possible. I have to admit I am partial to wearing sequins year round but this time of year I wouldn’t think twice. I am all for sparkle everywhere, makeup, hair, handbag, shoes…
I think this dress actually winked at me when I saw it hanging in Debenhams. Walking around the party wear was like walking into Studio 54. All the cool seventies vibes I just wanted to drape myself in the glamour of it all.
This dress though – its Studio by Preen and fits like a sparkly glove. The asymmetric hem, the elegance of the one long arm and the big black sequins covering every inch of it. I paired it with these silver sequin boots by Faith which I was very pleased to find how comfy they were. Incredibly important when you plan to be on the dance floor until the early hours.
Then continuing with the asymmetric theme I found these incredible earrings by Mathew Williamson. I love the moon and star combo. Add a huge faux fur (I have this dark turquoise one by Red Herring and its so soft) …and I am ready to go out-out!
A few more sparkly pieces to wet your whistle…
There’s 20% off party wear until Sunday 2nd December so the perfect excuse for a treat. Enjoy your party… but from one mum to another – don’t forget to drink water too! x

Black Friday and the entire ‘Cyber Week’ can get a bit overwhelming even for me who LOVES to hit the shops. but this year I am thinking ahead and have a bit of a wishlist which I am excited to try and bag when the discounts land. Some of that is a little boring including a hoover and a TV. But other bits not so boring… so to kick it all off I am starting with the high-end wishlist. These are the pieces I have my eye on at the moment at Farfetch. I’m not sure whats going in the sale yet but if any of these do I will be vying to get them in my basket pronto…
I mentioned on Instagram that I’ve been trialling a new product for the past 60 days. I also mentioned that I saw a very significant reduction in my wrinkles. And now I can reveal the product… it’s brand new by Seven Seas… and its called Perfect7 Renewal.
Seven Seas approached me about trialling this quite some time ago now, I went in to meet with the team and I also met a skin analyst. The skin analysts background in skin analysis goes back generations and she has a seriously impressive knowledge of it all. I learnt more about skin from her in half an hour than I have ever learnt in my whole life. And I do think knowledge is power for us – the consumers. We need to understand our skin before spending money on products. To understand why we are choosing to buy one product over another. And not because of hype or price… because of the ingredients and how and why it works.
So to cut a long story short – what works in Perfect7 Renewal. Why should we use it?
It is a UK first of its kind – expect more to be launched in its wake I am sure of it.
It contains Ceramides.
Ceramides (Provided in Perfect7 Renewal as Ceramosides™ and come in a little capsule) occur naturally in the skin and comprise 50% of the skins moisture barrier, but as we age levels drop.
Ceramosides are scientifically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in 60 days.
You take it alongside a comprehensive multivitamin and mineral tablet to support overall health and well-being, and a Seven Seas Omega-3 capsule with DHA for additional health benefits.
The skin analyst said ‘Ceramides are molecules that occur naturally in our skin and makeup 50% of the skins moisture barrier but as we age, our levels start to drop.
I learnt that if your skin’s cells were bricks then consider ceramides as the major part of the mortar in between them. They are the main lipid in the ‘cement’ surrounding the protective cells in the skin’s outermost layer’. So it makes sense to supplement levels of ceramides if we can.
The skin analyst took me off to do some tests where she took two readings of how my skin looked before I started using the supplement. The plan was to do the exact same test after the 60 days and compare results. I knew my initial results would be bad – years of sunbeds and sun worshipping mean my skin is definitely older than its years. But it made me more excited for the results at the end of the trial…
The team are busy getting all the science together from my results and I’ll be able to share the exact percentage drop with imagery of my skin very soon. So watch this space… I can’t wait to share it all….
Perfect7 Renewal is now on sale in Boots for £34.99 and Perfect7 Renewal Advanced is £39.99 and has the added benefit of the multivitamin and mineral tablet as well as the Omega-3 capsule too.
