Wear | Life | Eats

Friday we had a big company meeting at work followed by office drinks so this is always a hard one when deciding what to wear because you want to look smart for the meeting but still on trend when having drinks later.
I decided to go for this grey beautiful woollen dress from Hobbs that has a sort of funnel neckline, short sleeves and stops just above the knee.  I wore it with black tights and black wedged knee boots.  this looked both smart and trendy and I even got some compliments from the partners so I'd say it was a successful look.

Saturday I went to the gym in the morning and then was running around town doing errands so I wanted to wear something comfortable but also warm.  I opted for black waxy leggings from H&M with a cute Minnie Mouse t-shirt with my orange faux leather jacket from Primark and Lacoste pumps.  I also wore this leopard print scarf and clear sunglasses from Primark.

Sunday I went to The Wolseley for a lovely brunch and this place is rather fancy so I wore brown faux leather leggings from Next with a vest and chunky cardigan from M&S.  I then threw on my faux fur coat for a finishing touch.

I'll be honest, I wasn't really looking forward to this meeting on Friday but actually it was really good and informative.  It also made me realise what a wonderful company I work for and how lucky I have to be a part of it.  Exciting times ahead!
As it's January, like a lot of people I am getting back into a gym routine.  I've always been a bit of a gym bunny anyway and love to keep fit but I got out of the habit after my holiday and over the Christmas period so I'm back on the wagon now and feeling really good about it.
As I said I went to The Wolseley in Mayfair on Sunday which is the best place in London to go for brunch.  I had American style pancakes with berries as I was trying to be a bit healthyish but my friend had a full English and that looked amazing too.  I would definitely recommend this place.  they also do really yummy hot drinks and cakes.  100% to try if you're visiting London.

I hope you all had a good weekend.

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
