It is with great pleasure I bring to you the final pieces for 2018 from the gorgeous Coveted Collection by Avon. I have so loved being able to style these up and the excitement and surprise by people when they find out Avon design clothes. And clothes that are not only on point but also incredibly affordable.

 

First up is my favourite – these Coveted Lalana wide leg trousers. I love the colours, the waistband, the side stripe that makes your legs look even longer. I wear mine with my trainers in the day and a tee or oversized knit. And then with heels and a strappy top in the evening. Just add some bling for the festive season parties.

 

 

Second up – the Coveted Lalana cross-shoulder top. Each shoulder has a criss-cross lattice style detail giving the simple red tee a real rock edge. I like to just tuck the front into my jeans and throw a blazer over with a pair of ankle boots.

You can shop the entire collection here.

I don’t usually start my Christmas shopping early – but having been so on it with all the Cyber Week deals it meant I started snapping up gifts in November. First time for everything. And its sort of rolled on from there. In fact I think I am about two gifts away from completing my entire gift list. Smug right?!

Have you seen this years Debenhams Christmas adverts? That track gets stuck in my head every time I hear it… ‘staaaaar…’ do a bit of you know you did good, do a bit of Debenhams. I drive my husband mad choosing presents – and cards. I take so long. But I want them to be really loved and for the cards to mean something personal or make them laugh. So as part of my Christmas collaboration with Debenhams they invited me to choose a gift for someone special in my life. I chose my Sister. Like me she’s a mum of two and barely has time to think about herself, working four days a week and has been juggling sick children a lot the past month. I thought she deserved a gift that she wouldn’t ever buy for herself. Something I know she’d feel so guilty spending her own money on – so a real treat.

This beautiful black silk pyjama set has the most beautiful lace detail that cannot fail to make you feel like a silky goddess at night. I’d wear with a huge fluffy dressing gown for real luxury on the skin… and after a deep bubble bath. Thats my idea of a dream evening. With a large Merlot of course! I can picture my sister already! Quite envious…

I also know she never spends much on her skincare but loves the fact her sister is a beauty product junkie so uses mine. I wanted to treat her to something that’ll work but that’ll last a long time too. The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum is amazing. And a little goes a long way.

 

And the gift box – Debenhams has these gorgeous boxes in four sizes and they come with ribbon a tag and a choice of these little cards with notes…

Now lets hope it brings a huge smile to her face!  She deserves it.

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…

Enjoy your shopping…
