OOTD | Black and White Alanna Sleeveless Jumpsuit








Jumpsuit: Wearall.com*
Shoes: Jasper Conran*


This Alanna Sleeveless Jumpsuit is so beautiful! I made a great decision picking the white version as the black lace detail around the neck is great for any formal occasion. This is the second time debuting a jumpsuit on this blog, the first can be found here. I can safely say I am liking them more and more and they seem to be a great option for these chilly months. Also if you don't feel like wearing a dress or skirt but still want to look very much put together, this is just so easy to whip on.
Wearall.com have all sorts of different on trend clothing on their website and you can even get 10% off if you're a student!

Festive Yankee Direct Wax Tarts



I was kindly sent six of the new festive Yankee tarts in the post recently which came as a total surprise. As soon as I opened the parcel Christmas 2014 started :)
The scents that came with tea lights and a petal bowl holder were:
Candy Cane Lane
Icicles
Silver Branch
Angels Wings
Bay Leaf Wreath
Christmas Garland


This is the first time I have ever burnt tarts like this as I never actually knew how they worked without a wick a few years ago. The scents last ages and make my apartment smell soo lovely. They flexibility of changing the scent over, once the wax has cooled, is so easy!

My favourite's are Candy Cane Lane and Icicles as they are so warm and spicy smelling. For less than £1 each you really cannot resist buying lots in a big order!

For very affordable prices wax tarts are a must. Have you seen or ordered the Yankee Candle Advent Calender yet? You should if you haven't- here.

YankeeDirect is a great place to go if you want your home to sell like Christmas or even have some wonderful gift put together from the options available on the website.

OOTD | Grey Dorothy Perkins Jacket







Coat: Dorothy Perkins
Top: Wearall.com
Jeans: Topshop
Shoes: Primark
Bag: Primark

I went to the West End the other week and saw Les Miserables for my sister's belated birthday pressie... it was amazing. I was singing along to every song!! Plus my sisters got to meet one of their fave youtubers Carrie Fletcher after the show. Never seen so much fangirling in my life!! haha

  This is what I wore on that day in sunny London Town. This gorgeous long grey fluffy coat has an awesome clean-cut neckline which I adore. The 'like a boss' crop top sat perfectly with my high waisted jeans. To think within one month I own two of my first ripped jeans... whayyy! The first of them was featured in a previous outfit post here.

Event | Links of London Narrative Collection

 Last week I was invited to the lavish 'Links of London' event which showcased their latest 'Narrative' Collection pieces.

It was my first time browsing this actual shop, so it was great to see all the different collections and learnt how they started business years ago. Sipping on drinks and eating canapes, it was lovely to chat to bloggers whilst also being illustrated by @willagebbie.








The Narrative Collection is all about simple silver, gold or rose gold pendants, bracelets, necklaces and rings. The reason why they are simple are because they are ready to be personalised with your own personal touch. Of course you could leave it plain if you wanted. I just think it is a perfect opportunity to send a message to a loved one whatever it may be.

These are great gift ideas for Christmas, birthdays or even celebratory occasions. I was one lucky ducky to receive a silver necklace from the company which was engraved by the super skilled Tom instore. I got 'J' on one side and 'JoJo' on the other.
If you pop in store yourself, you can get a complimentary engraving service if you buy anything from the Narrative collection.

If you make an order of £200 in November you will receive a free silver pendant and chain worth £75.


Will you be buying an item as a present?

On My Feet | Classic Flossy Feet



Flossy: Arnedo Black- £19.95*

These classic black Flossy shoes will appear in an outfit of the day post soon, but for now I thought they should debut on their own. They are just that good!! Very simple, basic colour but super super soft which is something I instantly fell in love with when I first tried the pair on. This is just the beginning of flossy flats collection of different colours and patterns :)

These are fashionable enough for casual looks, suitable for driving shoes or even bunion savers after a long night in heels!

If you havn't already, you should check out their website to see the amazing different designs they have.

Review: Pure So Light Essential Floral Toner



Pure So Light is a brand that was initially created to target extremely sensitive skin types. To solve the many problems of skin irritation it was decided that 100% organic products should be made. Agnes Donazy who is the founder wanted her customers to use a product and not worry or feel the effects of harmful chemicals in skincare.

Out of everything in my skincare routine a perfect toner was missing until now. As the company offered to send me this to try, I took the opportunity to include it in my night time regime.

After a deep cleanse I would spritz this on my face and remove the excess with a cotton pad. Containing orange blossom, geranium and rosemary means the scent is very herbal. It reminds me of when you walk into neal's yard or Crabtree and Evelyn and are greeted with an infusion of scents. I can see this being a little overpowering if you are used to unscented facial products but not off-putting.

I did find this worked really well and left my face feeling fresh and clean.
If you are interested in trying this toner out, you can buy it at Pure and Light Organic 45ml*.

OOTD | Blue New Look Super Soft Skinny Ripped Jeans


 

Blazer:Zara
Top: Dorothy Perkins
Shoes: Converses
Jeans:New Look*
Bag: Vintage

I took a lovely stroll along the coast in Portsmouth the other day and the setting was so beautiful. I took this opportunity to show you my new ripped jeans which I have always wanted to style. These were sent to me from New Look and I am utterly impressed. I have never previously ought jeans from New Look but these are super duper soft and I recommend them! If you like the shabby chic look you will love this pair. My mum kept saying she needs to sew them up... like... seriously maa?

I am also wearing my new leather converse kicks because I loved my white ones so much. They however need a little breaking into which is annoying but kind of expected.

Although the whole look is very casual, the Zara blazer makes the look that bit more put together. Layering up is my favourite thing in the Winter months... can you spot my thick bed socks keeping my toosies warm?
