Last minute gifting! An easy list of things to buy

21 December 2017

Most people wouldn't dream of ordering Christmas presents online at this point and whilst buying online over the next couple of days is cutting it fine it's still possible to receive presents in time for the big day. If you're desperately in need of some last minute gifts then I have found that asos is the winning website for great easy-to-buy gifts and on-point next day delivery (especially if you're subscribed to asos premier delivery).

Order by the midnight tonight (21st dec) with asos standard delivery and by midday on Saturday 23rd for their next day delivery - Click here for the confirmed dates.

using advent calendars to get through January

20 December 2017

Though we may only have 4 days left on our advent calendars, 5 if you're lucky, believe it or not there are still calendars for sale. It feels like the world of simple chocolate countdowns is being taken over by the more elaborate, and significantly more expensive, gift advent calendar, not that we're complaining because who doesn't want a gift a day for a month? A skincare product, piece of jewellery, lipstick or any manner of other items (like gin, yes 24 days of gin is definitely a thing!)

A couple of years ago I bought a Ciate mini mani month at a discounted price because December was almost over, I did that so that I could continue the joy of a countdown throughout January. Of course we know January isn't 24-25 days long but it is notoriously one of the the roughest months of the year so to help keep those January blues at bay why not buy one of these gift-y advent calendars. A little nail polish by one of my favourite brands every day sure felt pretty great while feeling poor and back at work after the rush of Christmas!

shoes that get straight to the point

19 December 2017

There was a time where I really hated pointy shoes. I refused to go near footwear that had a pointy toes, black tights and any form of glittery clothing but now I love all of these things, especially when combined in one awesome outfit.

Pointed heel shoes and boots are some of the easiest to wear pieces of footwear because they glam up any old outfit. Shove an oversized knit dress on top of some leggings for serious comfort then add a pair of Ravel red heeled boots and you've got a much more pretty ensemble.

Party season is well underway but for those still looking out for the perfect last minute outfit for this weeks Christmas do asos have all of the great brands, gorgeous dresses and incredible footwear possible.

With so many great pieces to choose from I've picked out some of my favourites that I'd love to own simply to have pride of place in my wardrobe, let alone wear. I've also included the dress that I decided to buy and wear to this years Christmas party and a couple of favourites I intend on purchasing on payday.

craving: christmas jumpers

14 December 2017

With it being Christmas jumper day tomorrow I've been all over the internet looking for the best festive knitwear and pulled together some of my favourites.

Be it for an occasion or just because it's Christmas, most of us don't need an excuse to get involved in the festivities but if you require a little encouragement this year then try these on for size.

pretty gifts for her (that aren't makeup or skincare)

8 December 2017

It's here. Tis' the season where we all drive ourselves crazy trying to pick the perfect gifts for our loved ones. Thinking about what to buy female family and friends can be a bit tricky, especially if you want to avoid the standard beauty gift sets. Makeup gifts can ben hard due to selecting the right colours and skincare can be such a personal thing that preferences and allergies are hard to know. With that in mind I've put together a collection of ideas that aren't makeup or skincare and are sure to give everyone a smile.
