Bottle









Coat- c/o Three Floor, Polo Neck- Primark, Necklace- c/o Muru Jewellery, Trousers- ASOS similar here and here, Stan Smith Trainers- Adidas Originals

A couple of weekends back, slap bang in the middle of the month, when money wasn't what it was just a few weeks ago, Will and I went exploring.
That is one of the many things I love about living in London; there is never nothing to do. Whether it's the sights, exhibitions, window shopping or gallery hopping you simply cannot get bored when the purse strings have been cut.

A day of exploring the Frieze Fair Sculpture Park, a must if you're ever stuck for things to do, and coffee shop hopping (theres always money for coffee) called for comfort, so I grabbed my Stan Smiths and the latest addition to my coat-drobe, in the form of this incredible suede meets fluff, hooded bomber jacket by Three Floor. A seriously incredible coat that i've been wearing non-stop since it arrived. A coat that commands attention and provides compliment after compliment wherever it goes. It's a special one, and one that I am extremely chuffed to have in my ever expanding coat-drobe.

RMK Matte Shiny Cheeks



RMK Matte Shiny Cheeks- Look Fantastic
This is quite possibly the girliest piece of make up that I own; often banishing pink shades to the back of my make up collection and opting for darker bronze and brown shades, particularly for my cheeks, I was rather dubious when this arrived at my door.
However, I was pleasantly surprised by this little beauty by RMK, it's a beautiful matte blush in the middle with an ever so slightly shimmery bronze around the edge. Put them both together and you've got complete and utter cheek harmony.

I've never been a fan of blushes but the difference i've seen in my make up since using this really is amazing, and I now see why so many of my favourite beauty bloggers and YouTubers love their blushes so much. The RMK Matte Shiny Cheeks gives that natural glow that I pine for so dearly and is now an everyday staple to my make up bag!

A Million Dollars








Jumpsuit- c/o Gorgeous Couture, Bag- c/o Karen Millen

As I mentioned in last nights post, yesterday marked our 4 year anniversary and we celebrated in style throughout the weekend.
I love any excuse to dress up so I headed for my failsafe brand Gorgeous Couture to equip me for some seriously sassy, sexy yet seriously sophisticated dressing.
I opted for this beautiful, black, wide leg jumpsuit with cross neck and back detailing... An absolute beauty and a piece that made me feel like a million dollars.
Accessorised simply with a statement clutch bag by Karen Millen and a slick of the ole Ruby Woo and I was ready to drink and dine in style with my other half.

A night at the CitizenM




Today, Monday 27th October marks mine and Wills 4 year anniversary... Oh how time has flown by ey? So to celebrate we made a weekend of it and got a number of little bits and pieces planned in to celebrate in style.

The first, a night of comedy at the Comedy Carnival just off Leicester Square; and oh how hilarious it was!
We had such a wonderful night in a small, underground club with serious grime yet with such great charm, watching some pretty darn hilarious stand up comedians take to the stage.
We arrived just in time for happy hour (£2 for a glass of red aka loopy juice) and took our seat front row to watch the likes of Sean Meo, think dry, sarcastic comedy... absolutely Hilarious, Mark Silcox and Earl Okin (take a nosey at the upcoming shows and comedians here). It was a really great night and something we had never done before but I will most definitely be back for a seriously cheap yet laugh out loud kinda evening.

Five, £2 wines later and we headed to our bed for the night at the CitizenM Bankside hotel, pretty much next door to The Tate, so a really great location for anyone thinking of visiting London.
And ohhh what a hotel it is. Literally one of the best places i've ever stayed at, with impeccable interior design, colours and gadgets, I simply didn't want to leave.

The interiors were just incredible, think the most Pinterest perfect decor and times it by five and you've pretty much got the CitizenM hotel down to a T, filled with the most weird and wonderful nic-nacs, furniture and installations that had me oggling for hours.
We then headed to our room to be greeted by, what I can only describe as a space pod... UHHHMAZING. The bed was insanely comfortable and the lighting just fascinating, you could have a wee mini disco whilst showering which provided some serious laughs.
With the lighting, air con, window shutters and television (which had a huge variety of free films to choose from) all controlled by a Samsung tablet, it was a seriously slick experience.

I cannot recommend the CitizenM hotels enough, we had a wonderful stay and were very sad when we had to check out the morning after. CitizenM are dotted all around the world in NYC, Paris, Amsterdam, Glasgow and Rotterdam and I cannot wait to book my next trip... I know where i'll be staying.

Blue Vanilla Part 2









Fedora- Topshop, here & here, Blanket Cape- c/o Blue Vanilla, Tshirt- c/o Urban Outfitters old similar here, Flares- ASOS

Emerging from the bedroom my not so lovely boyfriend William started whistling "The Good,  the Bad & the Ugly" theme tune... NOT the vibe I was going for.
Infact the look I was intending to go for was Seventies Woodstock vibes... Lets hope i've nailed it and it's just Wills lack of fashion knowledge that saw him being clipped round the ear hole after that epic fail!

This is the second instalment from my collaboration with Blue Vanilla (see my first post here), and oh how fabulous it is. Blanket capes are everywhere this season as we all well and truly know, and to be honest, i'm a little late to the party when it comes to owning one. But i'm very glad I held out as i'm now hopelessly in love with this checked monochrome beauty with tassle trim; perfect for teaming with my black flares, which are currently surgically attached to my legs and my much neglected felt fedora, oh how i've missed you.

Clint Eastwood chic or a Jimi Hendrix groupie? Who knows, but I like it!

Blue Vanilla Part 1








Jumpsuit- Selected via ASOS similar here & here, Waistcoat- c/o Blue Vanilla, Bag- Calvin Klein c/o Mybag.com, Boots- c/o Public Desire
You simply cannot beat an all black look, particularly when it is riddled with textures and a number of pieces that are each so statement on their own, that when you put them together something pretty beautiful happens.

A simple jersey jumpsuit* super duper comfy and perfect for a Friday in work after a very long and busy week; throw in some leather pieces with some classic point boots by Public Desire and a killer piece of arm candy from mybag.com and the look is slowly coming together. All topped off and aced by this urrrrmazing shaggy waist coat by Blue Vanilla,  with just the right amount of glitter, it transforms a simple look into something rather spesh dontcha think?

Blue Vanilla, have challenged me to style up two of their amazing pieces from there brand new website, so stay tuned for part two on Sunday...

*more like a onesie... SO COMFY!
