one of my most viewed outfit posts

2012...Here are just a few of my favourite moments of what can only be described as a vintage year (it was hard to narrow it down!!).

Blog wise, the highlight of the year was most definitely being nominated for a Cosmopolitan blog award & the chance to attend the amazing awards ceremony. None of this would have been possible without all you guys - my lovelies & I thank you so much for giving me such an unbelievable opportunity!

On a personal level, rescuing Hugo has been hugely rewarding. Ian & I sometimes ask ourselves what we did to deserve him in our lives. He's brought us all so much happiness & I hope that in return we have made him feel safe & loved.
It's actually Hugo's 2nd birthday today, so happy birthday to Hugo!!

Winter Lace Shorts

Happy Friday Lovelies!
How was your Christmas? I'd love to hear about it.
I've really enjoyed the Christmas break - spending quality time with the people I love, eating & drinking far too much!!

These shots were taken pre - Christmas. It's rare to catch me without wearing sunglasses when I'm out, particularly when these photos were taken, as I was suffering from a nasty allergic reaction round my eyes, so had been looking like I had Panda eyes!!!

I love wearing shorts with tights in the winter (also seen here) & thankfully the British weather had turned mild enough for me to do so.

I was wearing...
jumper & boots Topshop
shorts Zara (SS12)
bag Louis Vuitton Alma
beanie AllSaints
watch Michael Kors
bracelet & ring Marc by Marc Jacobs
nail varnish Chanel Jade Rose

Do you like to wear shorts in the winter?

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend Lovelies

Gold For The Festive Season

Thursday, 20 December 2012

by Adele

For the Festive season I know I'll be wearing a lot of combinations with gold, so I decided to go for gold nail wraps on my toes this year. 
What I love about nail wraps is that they don't chip, they're fuss free once applied & add an instant element of glamour to your party outfit, lasting up to 4 weeks.

If you've followed my blog for a while, you'll know that I already posted a "How To" tutorial that takes you through how to apply nail wraps.
With a steady hand & a sharp pair of nail scissors, it took me about 40 minutes to apply the wraps.

When it comes to nail wraps I'm a fan of nails inc, for quality, design & price.

Now my tootsies are prepped for partying, I need to think about my finger nails. I'll probably change colour frequently, depending on what I'm wearing, but for festive parties I'll be sure to be adding some glitter or bling, as seen here.

here's another shot wearing berry...

How will you style your nails for the Festive season?

Have a fab Thursday Lovelies

Festive: Stained Glass Window Biscuits

Wednesday, 19 December 2012

by Adele

So far this season, when it comes to Christmas baking I've had many requests for my Mince Pies, so when Ian asked if I could bake some treats for him to take into work I decided on something a little different.  These biscuits make perfect Christmas tree decorations & look stunning when the light catches them, as well as tasting delicious. 

Have a yummy Wednesday Lovelies

Business Chic

Last meeting of 2012! 
With the weather having turned milder I was able to de-layer & keep it simple with a pencil skirt, peplum top & one of my favourite jackets thanks to Sugarlips. 
I always like to add a little edginess, so in this case the tights, wedges & a messy pony did the trick!

 I was wearing...
peplum top Topshop
faux leather skirt River Island
wedges & clutch Werelse for Mango Touch
tights M&S
sunglasses Gucci c/o Sunglasses Shop
earrings Chanel
bracelets Tiffany & Co / Gucci
ring Hermes
nail varnish Revlon Minted

Can you believe it's only 1 week to go til Christmas Day? Thankfully, my presents are all bought, with the last few still to wrap - how about you?

 Have a fab Tuesday Lovelies
