Here's to an even better 2015

All that Glitters...

With under 10 days to go until the big day, it's time to get sparkly! I'm a definite glitter girl and couldn't let the season pass without a healthy does of sparkle. The more the merrier I say!

Shine on throughout the party season with these picks...

I'm in love with the dress above! So simple, yet stunning. Topshop are really smashing it with their party wear this season. I also picked up this jumpsuit recently. It may have left a pool of glitter on the floor of the fitting room when I tried it on, but that was enough to make up my mind. Who wouldn't like to leave a trail of glitter behind them?!

Happy Monday!

A little bit of London...

Those of you that follow me on Instagram will know I took a trip across the water this week to explore Christmas in London. Working in a creative industry, it's important to stay inspired, and where better to soak up the festive atmosphere than this fabulous city.
Sadly there wasn't enough time for shopping on this occasion, so I think a girls weekend is definitely on the cards for early 2015!

I took a million photos but here are a few highlights from Harrods, Fortum & Mason, Chanel and the gorgeous Le Chalet at Selfridges.

I wore my new Missguided cocoon coat to keep me warm and cosy whilst exploring. It is fast becoming one of my favourite purchases and it was an amazing Black Friday bargain. It comes in a whole range of colours and I'm very tempted to pick up another one. The fuschia colour is now only €26! Surely, I can't say no?!

This weekend I'll be picking up the last couple of gifts on my list and then on to my favourite part..the wrapping! It's a job that many dread but I really enjoy it!

Happy Weekend!

Mini Marvels

They say good things come in small packages. And that is certainly true when it comes to the latest handbag trend! I'll be the first to admit my loved of over-sized everything accessories, but lately I can't get enough of the micro bag. Small, sleek and compact, these styles are often miniature versions of their iconic older sisters like the Givenchy Antigona or the Mulberry Lily. 

Perfect for holding only the essentials, they are equally versatile for day or night worn cross body or slung over the shoulder. Who can argue with this cuteness? I'm (im)patiently waiting for the Mulberry sale come December 26th. Fingers crossed!

In the meantime, here's a few more options

Gift Beauty...

When it comes to gifting, you really can't go wrong with Beauty sets. 
I think beauty gifting is a lovely way to introduce someone to a particular brand or treat them to pampering products that they wouldn't usually buy for themselves.

The only hard part is giving them away! These are just a few that I love...

Christmas Jumpers...

Now that's it's December, everything is getting the festive treatment. Even knitwear!

The Christmas jumper (or ugly holiday sweater) trend has been creeping in over the past few years and traditionally they haven't been all that pretty! 2014 brings a stylish update however and even though I've already bought one (above from Penneys), I can't help but want another!

Here are a few of my favourites...

Have a great week!
