Winter Coat Obsession

Leave a Comment
Hi! I hope you're having a lovely week so far! I have felt particularly cold this week, which has made me appreciate my winter coat even more than usual. For this reason, I thought I would share with you my latest wardrobe obsession. 

I live in this coat. I'm not kidding, ever since I purchased it in Ibiza (I know, how funny) in September, I could not wait for the temperature to drop so I could wear it every day. 

I throw it on before heading out to work in the morning and over black jeans at the weekend. 

What I love most, except for the fact that it's so warm and cosy, is that it's mid-length which is perfect for when I'm wearing pencil skirts and mid-length dresses to work. Don't you hate it when some coats are in that awkward in between length?


This particular number is from Zara, but I've rounded up some similar versions below in case you fancy a browse...

Le Chalet

1 comment
I am at my happiest when I'm browsing around Selfridges department store, especially at Christmas. Wandering from floor to floor making sure I don't miss a thing. For this reason, you could imagine my excitement when I first heard about Selfridge's rooftop restaurant that has been transformed into a ski chalet!



My friend Ailis and I jumped on the tube on Wednesday night and wizzed through the crowds to make it in time for our reservation.

There is only one way up to the rooftop, and that's via a lift located in the beauty hall. We stepped out of the lift and into a winter wonderland. The pathway to the reservation desk was crowded with fairy lights which spanned above our heads and lanterns either side.  




As we were led up to the candle lit restaurant we were immediately hit by the warmth of the heaters, and the big cosy blankets draped over our seats made us feel like we were actually snuggled in a ski chalet. 



We began with a Cosmopolitan and wine whilst we browsed the menu and looked over Winter Wonderland from the window. 



We both decided on the rib with parsnip mash, with roasted roots to share. The rib was quite fatty and dry, but apart from that it was nice, especially with the roots which arrived in a honey sauce.


If we were hungrier, we would have ordered so much more, but we weren't hungry enough to take full advantage of the menu. Looking back now, as I am writing and my belly is rumbling, I would do anything for some of the lobster mac n cheese that I noticed on the menu, followed by the apple streudel with lashings of custard. Yum! 

I'm glad we booked up so that I can tick it off of my list, and it provided the perfect fuel for an evening of shopping, but the service and food hasn't made me want to return in a hurry. 

If you're looking to visit Selfridges in the lead up to Christmas, I suggest you book up online here, to escape the crowds of fellow last minute shoppers and relax with a mulled wine to remind yourself why you love Christmas!

The Twenty Six

1 comment
Last week I drove to Maidstone for some meetings and lunch. I originally didn't plan on blogging that particular day, but the restaurant we dined at was so lovely, I simply had to take a few snaps and share them with you all.

The restaurant is called The Twenty Six, and is new to Maidstone having only opened a couple of months ago. Despite this, if you wasn't aware of this fact prior to visiting, you would think that they've been around for years.

The name represents the intimate nature of the restaurant. Twenty six chairs for twenty six people. 


We were welcomed from the freezing cold to a roaring fire that instantly made me never want to leave! The restaurant is small and cosy, and has a homely feel to it with cushions and throws draped over the chairs. 

The menu is small, however I still found it a task deciding what to order! I eventually decided on Beetroot and goats cheese for starter, followed by venison with truffle mash and roasted garlic for main. I cannot begin to describe how delicious this dish was. I will even go as far as saying it was one of the nicest dishes I have ever eaten!


Dessert wasn't a hard decision for me, as soon as I saw the menu I knew I had to order the hot chocolate pudding with ice cream. Yum!



I like to give credit to restaurants that seriously impress, whether they're new or long running, and The Twenty Six has made me want to return as soon as possible! It's the perfect place to relax on a cold winters day, where you're guaranteed a lovely atmosphere, and more importantly, good food to warm you up. 

They also have a tasting room seating 8 to 12 people, which enables you to watch the theatre of the kitchen through the glass window. Perfect for an private dinner for a special occasion.

Christmas Party Attire

Leave a Comment

Saturday night kicked started the Christmas party season, and played host to my first Christmas party of the year. It was the perfect opportunity to finally wear my favourite H&M dress which I spoke about in my recent haul video

I paired the dress with black and gold sandals and kept accessories simple with a gold cuff and Mulberry clutch bag. Make up wise, I opted for a bold look and wore what I like to call my "Christmas Lipstick" (in colour Love Liberty), something you will be seeing me wearing at every opportunity this season!

We made our way to a party hosted by the event company Best Parties Ever. I went to the same event last year with my friends (check out my blog post here), and we had so much fun that I made sure I returned with my family this year. I have to be completely honest though, I was so disappointed! It wasn't at all like last year, and I frankly felt embarrassed that I had even recommended it. These things happen though, and at least I know not to return next year (every cloud!). My friends and I are booked in for the end of December, so I'm really hoping we were just unlucky on that particular evening. 

Nevertheless, on a positive note, Saturday night officially got me into the Christmas spirit and ready for all the festivities that I have in my diary this month. 

Happy December everyone, have a good one!

Enelle London & Nina Lamb Jewellery

1 comment

I have an obsession with dainty jewellery. Subtle yet eye-catching pieces that force people to interrupt you mid-conversation and ask "where on earth did you get that". 

When I find a piece of jewellery that I adore, I wear it everyday and with any outfit, which is exactly what I've been doing with my new "like a star" necklace from EnelleLondon.com 

Enelle London is a collection of understated, incredibly pretty sterling silver and 18 carat gold jewellery designed to be worn everyday. What I love most about the collection is that each unique piece tells its own story. From the tiny penny necklace to the lucky horseshoe charm, each piece becomes personal to the individual from the moment they wear it. 

I caught up with the designer behind the timeless collection, the lovely Nina Lamb. She explained how spending two years living and travelling in India and Asia initially inspired her to start a jewellery collection.  Each design is something she would wear herself. "I really wanted to create beautifully understated jewellery that still manages to be completely eyecatching and irresistible - that delicate necklace you wear every day and someone always comments on it. The perfect statement earrings that finish every look, yet never feel too much."


Nina has also launched a new luxury brand - ninalambjewellery.com. The Nina Lamb Collection is fine jewellery in 14ct gold featuring black and white diamonds. Very delicate stacking rings and timeless pendant necklaces, the collection is simply stunning. 

A believer that precious things should not be hidden away, Nina's designs combine simplistic forms in fine gold and diamonds. I have one word for this collection, and that is enchanting. Enchanting pieces for someone special, designed to be shown off every day. 

I think it's fair to say I could happily wear every single item from the collection. All at once. Every day. 

I am obsessed. 


Discover the collections yourself and prepare to fall in love over on enellelondon.com and ninalambjewellery.com.

I do however have some exciting plans this December so I can't wait to bring you along with me and show you what I get up to.

Thursday Night in Soho

Leave a Comment


Last Thursday was eventful to say the least. What started as a quiet, sophisticated gin tasting session (that was never going to stay quiet for long, was it!) with my friend Jenie, turned into us stumbling into G-A-Y and dancing to S Club 7! 

We were kindly invited down to The Warwick  in Soho to experience their new Gin Emporium bar, which boasts an impressive menu dedicated to the classic gin and tonic cocktail. The bar staff took us through their collection of Gin's, telling us everything we need to know about the spirit. 

‘the gin & tonic has saved more 

Englishmen’s lives & minds, than 

all doctors in the empire’

Winston Churchill

I highly recommend for any gin lover!

After tasting each type of gin and enjoying a gin and tonic of our choice from the menu, we were invited upstairs for drinks and nibbles. After a couple of hours, Jenie and I left in the search for a Mexican bar I wanted to pop into, but after getting lost and stumbling upon G-A-Y, we decided to go in for a boogie! 

Random nights are always the best nights and I'm so glad I remembered to vlog our evening (which made us cry with laughter watching back the next morning), so that when we're old and wrinkly we can watch back and remember how much fun we had!

3 in 1 Curling Iron!

Leave a Comment


You must know by now how obsessed I am with curling my hair, so I was beyond excited to try out Jose Eber's Trio curling iron

The device comes with 3 distinctive curling barrel sizes so I can change up my hairstyle and create different looks without having to buy 3 separate curling irons!

The sizes to choose from are 19mm, 25mm and 32mm, so depending on what type of curl and style I wish to create, the chosen barrel simply clicks onto the handle and heats up in seconds. Using the up and down buttons on the front, the heat can be controlled to correspond with my hair type and the chosen temperature depends on how tight or loose I want the curl to be.

In my tutorial video above, I used the 25mm barrel to show you how to create my favourite natural looking curls. Once I wrap my hair around the wand, I hold for 5 seconds and release. It's as quick and simple as that! I find it highly convenient in the morning when I'm rushing to get out of the door for work, as it only takes me 10 minutes to curl my hair and I'm good to go. The curls then last for days, and I know I have said this in the past but I promise I am not exaggerating, they really do!

To view a previous tutorial where I use the 32mm wand, click here and here

Please subscribe to my YouTube channel by clicking >>here<<, to stay updated on my videos. Once you're subscribed, stay tuned for a very exciting Jose Eber giveaway coming within the next few days, where I will be giving away a brand new product from their incredible range!

Winter Staple: Coats

Leave a Comment
Winter Coats

If you haven't got your winter coat sorted yet, don't worry! You still have time. Usually by now, all the good coats on the market have been snapped up, but this year, there are so many to chose from and they're all still available to buy. 

There is something about buying my winter coat that makes the prospect of a bitter change of weather particularly appealing. With a number of trends to inspire you this season, the biggest challenge you will face is deciding which one belongs in your wardrobe!

My favourite trends this year are the masculine tailored and oversized waterfall coats. I also believe that every girl should own a good cape this season, my favourite being my pick above due to it's gorgeous warm tones. Cosy faux fur coats are timeless, and when I spotted the black and white number above, it reminded me instantly of the Fendi coat Kate Moss wore a couple of years ago, the only difference being the price tag! 

Happy shopping!
