Happy Friday Lovelies! Can you believe it's December tomorrow? I can't!!

I couldn't wait to wear my new jacket thanks to Sugarlips. The boucle & frayed edge detail is very Chanel, whilst the chunky silver chains really give the jacket an edge.
I wore it for the first time last Sunday with a simple jeans & blouse combo, but I'm looking forward to styling it with leather & pencil skirts. Think it's going to be a great jacket to carry me through to SS13.

I was wearing...
wax effect jeans AllSaints
blouse Zara (SS12)
velvet loafers Zara (new collection)
belt Oasis (old)
sunglasses Chanel
earrings Vivienne Westwood
bracelets Tiffany & Co & Gucci
ring Hermes 
nail varnish Chanel Malice

What are your plans for the weekend? Ian & I are going to my favourite restaurant to celebrate my birthday...can't wait!

Have a fabulous weekend Lovelies

Duo Boots

Duo Boots

When I was asked to choose my favourite ladies boots from Duo Boots I couldn't wait to show you my picks. All of them are gorgeous & stylish in their own right, but what I love about this brand is you can buy your boots in 3 different widths & various calf sizes. 

I know there have been times I have tried on knee length boots only to find them either loose or sometimes tight around the leg (& I don't have large calfs!). Have you ever experienced this when buying knee length boots?
At Duo Boots there's a handy measuring guide on the website which helps you find the best fit for your boots first time. 

With free worldwide shipping, it's so easy to find your perfect pair of boots!






Who says you need to compromise on fit to look stylish!

Which boots have caught your eye?

Butternut Squash + Sweet Potato Lasagne

Wednesday, 28 November 2012

by Adele

If there are any vegetarians reading have to try this recipe!
Butternut Squash is one of my favourite vegetables. I adore it roasted, but have never cooked a lasagne with it before. 
As it's in season & at its best, I couldn't wait to combine it with all the flavours that go into this delicious dish...think sage, rosemary, nutmeg, ginger.

If you're worried about the cheese levels (the sauce is made with ricotta & parmesan), use the low fat equivalents which are readily available in most supermarkets.
A great alternative to a classic lasagne.

served with baby leaves sundried tomatoes & stuffed olives, drizzled with a balsamic glaze

Just want to say a massive thank you for all your birthday wishes over the last couple of days - they really made me feel warm & fuzzy inside. I'm so lucky to have such lovely followers!

Today I'm down in London for the Debenhams SS13 Press Day...can't wait to have a sneak peak of next season!

Have a yummy Wednesday Lovelies

by Adele

First outfit post with my new birthday gifts - I picked the windiest day to take these shots - my hair was literally flying everywhere, but at least the sun was shining. 

I wore this outfit to London on Saturday (only with a different bag & jewellery). My new golden jacquard skirt is my favourite go to piece to wear (berry leather pants, you have been relegated!)
 I also couldn't have hoped for a better match between my bag, snood & nail should know by now how I love to coordinate!

I was wearing...
top Zara
bag Louis Vuitton
quilted flats Topshop
sunglasses Gucci c/o Sunglasses Shop
snood H&M
bracelet Hermes
ring YSL
nail Varnish Chanel Malice

Today is my birthday - whoop whoop!
 I'm spending a relaxing day with my parents & my gorgeous doggies, Missy & Hugo. Then at the weekend, Ian & I will go celebrate.

It's also Christmas Day in exactly 4 weeks...eeeek! Have you started your Christmas shopping?

Have a fab Tuesday Lovelies

New In: Louis Vuitton + Hermes

Louis Vuitton Alma Vernis PM in Amarante

Happy Monday Lovelies! How was your weekend?
Say hello to Alma! I spent a very wet, rainy Saturday in London, shopping with my sister. Despite the weather we had a fab girly day. First stop was Louis Vuitton to buy my long-awaited Alma bag - a present from Ian for my birthday tomorrow.

Whenever I buy an investment piece like this, I always go for a design that I know will stand the test of time.
I adore Alma's classic shape & the colour - Amarante looks almost black in some lights, then when the light catches it the gorgeous bordeaux lustre vernis shines through.
Hope you love it as much as I do.

Hermes Clic H Bracelet

A joint birthday & Christmas present from my family, a Hermes bracelet had been on my wishlist for a long time. The tough decision to make was which colour to buy? Luckily, as soon as I tried this black & gold beauty on that was it...decision made instantly.

I actually love it soooo much I can see myself buying other colours (when I can afford to!).

What's on your Xmas wishlist?

Have a wonderful week Lovelies
