Parka coats

Quick post on parka's as I received lots interest on my 5 year old Topshop one that I posted on Instagram yesterday. 

As I said, I've had mine for 5 years which I bring out every winter so I see a parka as an investment and a wardrobe essential, especially in weather like this. But also for casual days with trainers and jeans.

My Style

Wearing my old faithful Parka from Topshop yesterday (and probably everyday for the foreseeable) with oversized Zara jumper, black jeans, Hunter boots (available at Office) and bobble hat. Snow chic maybe?!

Let's Disco





Party season is upon us people and I've had so many ladies say to me how they just can't find the perfect dress for their christmas do- this including myself. I love dresses but rarely wear them so I always find it hard to get the right one to suit me... however I have out together a selection of my faves should they suit YOU!

I tried and purchased the left dress (pictured above) and even though its lovely- I particularly like the top and neck part, it just didn't feel like 'Me'. I was happy to step out of my comfort zone Y'know as its christmas an all but you've gota feel like YOU haven't you?! So, it went back but if this is a bit of you, I would defo give it a try!

*Final Tip* If going for a short shift dress I would wear a light denier tight with sock boots or heeled ankle boots. And if wearing a longer, tighter dress, I would go for a bare leg and thin strappy sandals to keep it elegant and classy... ok, not groundbreaking info but just my personal style preference :)


Now rememeber... get yourself a dress, get your sass on, grab a cocktail and work that shit!

Gift guide for the ladies

Yep the panic is on, I can feel it. What does she want? What does she like? Well, I'm here to save you (sort of) and help you to find a nice gift or at least give you a guide.

First of all I'm going to talk about a couple of things I've had gifted to me from some lovely brands. I appreciate that I got these things for free but I honestly wouldn't big them up if I wasn't happy with them and I think they would make great gifts.


So, first up are these slippers from Morland Sheepskin. They are so divine and soft, literally heaven on your feet. Excellent quality- I love them!



Next up, I got sent this skincare regime from RosehipPlus. I didn't know too much about Rosehip oil prior to this gifted but I read up on it and it has a lot of benefits to the skin i.e. Moisture, anti ageing, scar treatment plus many more and obvs gives you a nice glow. I haven't been doing the regime for very long but my skin has no dry patches (and I always have dry patches) and it feels super soft. So far so good! 
In this package I received; Rosehip oil, cleanser, day cream, night cream and reshape oil roll on. But you can buy them all individually. Another great gift for someone who likes to try new skincare.





Lastly,  this beautiful flower subscription from Bloomon. I have already written a blogpost about this which you can read here. You can buy a gift card by going on to the website and selecting what size flowers you would like, how many deliveries you'd like to send and when you'd like them and all this will determine the price of the gift. I receive mine every fortnight for 3 months and I honestly really look forward to receiving my fresh bouquet every other friday so if you know some who loves flowers, I highly recommend this as a gift. 


*If you do go for this you can get a free gorgeous vase, worth £25 buy entering code 'jovase'*

The humble hoody




We all love a hoody, I have no doubt that we all have one hung on the back of the door or slung on that chair thats covered in clothes, ready for when we get home, de-bra and shove on to get into comfy mode...right?!

 Well now the hoody is having a breakthrough and is not only for the house and the gym (and the hangover) it has now become somewhat of a fashion piece. And it looks so good!



The Look

Here is some street style inspo of it in action. I love this look so much, especially under a smart coat with trainers or boots.

The tip is to not over think it- Just throw it on under pretty much anything, add top layer i.e. coat/jacket and you're good to go!



Images from Pinterest.




My Style

I've gone for my usual day to day 'running around, getting jobs done' look and added my old Mango leopard coat to add style and it really works.


 This particular one is from Primark for £6 I think. However size up, possibly twice, as they come up so small (this is my excuse anyway :/ probe need to lay off the crisps too)





And here layered with a shirt and trench with heeled boots.



Top Picks

So, there you have it. Dig out that hoody and try a new style.

M&S 'Try Tuesday' Campaign

I was recently asked if I would like to take part in M&S new campaign called 'Try Tuesday'. Its a personal stylist service available to everyone and is totally free! I thought it sounded fab and couldn't wait to give it a go. 


How it works...

So, you start off by answering a few details about yourself from your height, age, skin tone and body shape etc... to your day to day activities and what your personal style preference is and a few other specifications to ensure that they can understand your style and what you would like- this literally takes minutes.
Next, your personal stylist will take your information and find the perfect pieces for you. This will take a couple of days. My stylist was Alison, she was great and super attentive, checking in to see if I was happy with the selection and if their was anything I'd like to change. She came back to me with some fab outfits which suited my style perfectly, along with some tips on how to style them.


On my list was these blue velvet sock boots. I'm usually quite safe when it comes to footwear, I don't go for bold colour but Alison encouraged this with her great styling tips and so I went for them. 



Click here for the boots.



Get the Look

Style with these M&S faves to complete this look.

Trench coat- here // Jumper- here // Jeans- here.


So, if you feel like you need a little guidance with any aspect of your wardrobe, I urge you to try this service. Not only is it really easy, it is actually fun and enjoyable. 
Click here to give it a go and enjoy! 

Be sure to let me know how you get on.
