Firstly I want to apologise for my lack of blogging this week, I have a tux post on its way! But for now in true Friday fashion here are my buys of the week and its been a racey lacey week.

I treated myself to this gorgeous green lace dress from Hennes, I just love the soft lace sleeves paired with the high neckline, a little Victoriana style. It looks great with bare legs and my Chloe ankle boots – shame its so damn freezing though!!!

I also picked this beauty up from a new find of mine – God Save Queens. Such stunning lingerie. Its so delicate and looks super cute popping out from a t-shirt. Not the most supportive though so I won’t be wearing it everyday.

And finally – I always use Laura Mercier hand cream in the amber vanille but in this cold it just hasn’t been cutting the mustard so my own mum recommended the OPI Avoplex hand cream which has since been working a treat. I also need to invest in a pair of gloves!

I am starting a new Friday ritual in which I am going to share with you my weekly buys. Embarrassing to admit it is very rare that a week goes by in which I don’t shop… whoops. So this week I bought two amazingly soft and just the right bagginess, plus they turn at the sleeves perfectly – Breton stripe tops, from H&M. I have included the link here but they’ve sold out of a lot online, in store head to the L.O.G.G. section and they’re hidden away in there. I bought white with navy stripes and navy with a white stripe. Before Christmas I bought a Saint James breton top on sale but had to return it as it was just too baggy so finding these I was delighted… they are just £12.99!

The third of the weeks purchases was a slightly higher price tag but I am hoping they’ll be a classic staple in my wardrobe – these gorgeous black leather boots from &OtherStories. They have a slight look of the Isabel beauties I have been obsessing over, and an Acne feel to them. My delivery is due today and super excited. Will take a snap for IG when they get here. If you sign up to their newsletter you get a 10% discount…. every little helps!

And finally – I also treated myself to a little pot of Charlotte Tilbury magic – the eye cream. I have tried the magic face cream before and been tempted but I have so many at home I need to work my way through first I thought I would try the eye cream first and see how I go. Initial thoughts are very positive but time will tell. For now I am enjoying the beautiful packaging on my side cabinet in the bedroom.

Thanks,

Have you seen the super cute – evil eye hearts – popping up over tops, t-shirts, sweaters and trainers? These playful characters are the love child of Commes Des Garcons Play. Pair super soft fabrics with classic staples such as the oversized striped shirt and breton stripe top and add this motif and you get the urban cool design that has been seen on fashion editors and street style icons as well as rappers and that boy next door. I love love LOVE them! You can get your own slice of CDG Play heaven from Dover Street Market here and they even do kids sizes so you can twin! Win-win!

 

What do you think? A fan or think they’re a bit naff?

Love to hear your thoughts…

It’s a cliche but January is usually the time I reassess my health habits and this includes attending those gym classes I have been putting off throughout December as I definitely over-indulge on the wine and chocolate.

For me it’s far less about being ‘skinny’ than being healthy and strong. When I am working out I am generally a happier person. I have more energy, make healthier choices with my food, sleep better and my clothes certainly fit better. After Decembers fun my skinny jeans are feeling rather tight!

So to make it more fun I like to buy a few new pieces to wear in the gym, and at the moment the highstreet in full of amazing workout gear for great prices. I bought these H&M leggings and cannot wait to wear them with my black Nike roshe runs. I also wanted to introduce you to one of my favourite swimwear brands which also does incredible workout gear. Seriously stylish and super sexy gym tights and tops. I have included my favourite here but check out the website for the full collection is it divine and will make even the biggest gym-phobe want to hit the treadmill!

You know when you have never heard of something before then you hear of it and suddenly you hear it all the time? That’s what has happened with my currently coveting item – the Patsha boot. The simple, modern ankle boot by Isabel Marant. I am obsessed and absolutely desperate for the leopard print calfs hair version and they are sold out everywhere in my size. So of course I have set up an alert on Vestaire collective and will continue to browse google in the hopes something changes. In the meantime I wanted to share how gorgeous these boots are with you and indulge in some Isabel Marant inspo pictures. And if you happen to own a pair of these in a size 41 and feel like selling them on – I would love you forever!
