Next set me a challenge for Easter to style their lovely new Carter Chair. I was so excited by this challenge as I love to watch some 60 minute make over on my days off work and I can't resist a challenge. So I put on my serious specs (I think they make me look smarter) and chose some accessories that I feel really compliment the chair.
I started by injecting a pop of colour, with a statement green shade Soft Velour Cushion, this really adds the wow factor and stands out against the cool grey chair. To compliment this I added a patterned Teal Wooly Twist Cushion, I think the teal looks great with the green, and this cushion adds a nice bit of texture to the overall look.
To complete the look I chose a Patterned Ceramic Vase in the same shade and some adorable Metalic Geo Coffee mugs...
All this decorating and working on my Feng Shui has got this pooch tired...time for a nap. Happy Easter everyone!
If like me you were lusting over the Miu Miu denim jackets shown during Paris Fashion Week and can't wait or afford the collection then why not customise your own?
I took my fabulous Pethaus Denim Jacket and added some iron on patches from ASOS... Which is your favourite the Girl Gang one or the Sorry Not Sorry?
P.S. now accepting all applications to join my Girl Gang, only fabulous bitches welcome.
I like many others love to copy a celebs outfit and can't afford the real deal so this week I got everything online from ASOS and copied three fabulous looks one from Miss Dior herself, Rihanna. The most important woman in fashion, Anna Wintour and a girl from the city, just like me... Olivia Palermo. The real question is Who Wore It Better?
You might be too late to buy this Next Red Tartan Suit for your work party but with Christmas and NYE right around the corner there is still plenty of opportunities to wear it... and I recently read an article which was pleading for us to give up the Frozen onesies on Christmas Day and put in some effort. So to all the ladies out there with Christmas Tree earrings hiding away in a jewellery box it's time to give them a dust!
Luckily being a dog I can get away with a onesie... well hopefully anyway!
Guys are notoriously hard to buy for... well compared to us ladies anyway! If you get me anything even slightly sentimental you've won me over! So if you are struggling to find something for that notoriously hard to buy for guy in your life then hopefully this guide might help or at least point you in the right direction.
Incase my face wasn't clear enough... I LOVE shoes!! I don't know anyone who wouldn't be over the moon to open a present on Christmas day to find a pair of Russell & Bromley shoes inside. The gorgeous KEEBLE 3 is the definitive tassel loafer which has undergone a seasonal update in grey nubuck leather. The lucky guy receiving these is sure to stand out from the crowd in this timeless classic with a modern twist... the perfect solution to smart casual.
Fragrances are such a great gift because lets face it nobody likes to buy them for themselves. If you are shopping for a true Gent they will love the newest fragrance from Dunhill London, ICON Absolute. With a soothing citrus, woody and floral element contrasted with the masculine musky element of the rare burning oud and packaged in a gorgeous gold bottle it's sure to go down a treat.
Skincare would've been a weird and probably unpopular choice 5 years ago until what I like to call the David Beckham effect when most guys suddenly believed it to be OK to look after yourself. So thanks for that David. If you are looking to give that guy in your life a nudge in the right direction then Neville, the no nonsense grooming company have some great stocking fillers. I went for the Rescue Scrub and Shampoo & Conditioner perfect for the gym bag.
If your Boyfriend has his sights firmly set on that summer body whilst you might not be able to give him a six pack you can definitely get him these Quest Bars which are packed with 20g of Protein in each bar. I must warn you though that if you try them you will probably love them... But there's no harm in buying presents for your boyfriend but intending to use them yourself right?
I mean let's face it you can't really go wrong with a Christmas Gift Set so this would be perfect for someone you are completely unsure on what to get. The Thierry Mugler A*men is an innovative and adventurous fragrance that offers an unexpected explosion of rich woody notes. The Christmas gift set contains a Refillable Eau de Toilette and a Hair and Body shampoo!
Are you shopping for a Jet Setter but can't quite stretch to a return ticket to the Maldives? Then a Wash Bag from Man Cave is the perfect solution... All your skincare solutions taken care off in one handy bag that's ideal for travelling what's not to love?
Christmas is my favourite time of year, especially the Kitchen on Christmas Day! But enough about food with Christmas quickly approaching I thought I'd focus on the gifts because you don't want to get that wrong... If you are struggling with ideas for that lucky lady in your life be it your Mum, Girlfriend, Sister, Colleague or anyone else then hopefully this guide might give you some last minute inspiration.
These fab, fluffy, faux fur slippers from Bedroom Athletics are the perfect gift for someone who likes to keep their toes nice and toasty in front of the TV with a cuppa tea.
If you are looking to add some sparkle to your gifts then this chic Necklace from Next will be a winner... It isn't quite Diamonds but it's sure to make a statement.
Is your sister a bit of a party animal? Then this cute suede 70's inspired snake print clutch from Next will be go down a treat and if she isn't quite as feisty it also comes in a festive silver!
A candle is probably one of the safest bets, I mean who doesn't love a slow burner? Instead of going for the typical Yankee Candle why not try this gorgeous scented candle from Connock London which is infused with the exotic fragrance of Hawaiian flowers is guaranteed to get you in the good books.
Before I start with this one... make sure you know are sure on her shoe size otherwise this could end badly. These Divine Stuart Weitzman flats from Russell&Bromley are a great choice for that fashionista in your life and will be the perfect shoes to transition from day to night. These are definitely a step in the right direction!
Is it just me or does this Jean Paul Gaultier fragrance look more like an Academy Award rather than a fragrance? The stunning bottle along with the glamarous scent will be sure to put a smile on someones face this Christmas!
With Christmas almost here that means New Years Eve is right around the corner so why not get that special someone a pair of statement party heels. These vibrant red fringed Suede pair from Next will be sure to put you top of the Thank You card list... take my word for it!
Fragrance gift sets are a very popular choice but why not get something a little different like this Captivating Luxuries body care set from Clarins perfect for someone who tends to be fussy and hard to buy for! Also this set includes a fabulous wash bag so it's almost two gifts in one? Winner!
Stockings are my favourite part of Christmas... sometimes the little thoughtful presents mean WAY more than the big stuff. If the big stuff isn't some Louboutins that is! So for me being the lazy pug I am I wanted to get all of the bits and bobs from one place and ASOS certainly delivered. From slippers, to books, mugs or even Christmas fairy headbands they really do have it all.
I have listed everything below which I bought... hurry whilst stocks last! This time I'm not kidding, I think some bits are already sold out so I've put several links for each goodie! What are you filling your stockings with this Christmas?
