Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate*
Kiehls are my ultimate luxury skincare brand, theres something about there minimalistic and honest approach which has me pining for their latest release. Well, that and the fact that they're stores and concessions are the coolest little slices of heaven i've ever seen.

I've heard a lot about the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate and i've been trialing it now for the past 2 months, and I absolutely love it.
Just 3 drops of the miracle oil before you go to bed and you skin is left feeling silky, smooth and seriously hydrated. The natural lavender scent is perfect for assisting with a quick and easy trip to the land of nod and I wake up with my skin feeling pretty darn special every single day.

It's £36 and to me, I think that is seriously super reasonable. It works wonders for dehydrated skin, which, if you've read my blog for a while, you'll know that I suffer with, and it leaves my face looking seriously radiant each and every morning. But, as you only need 3 drops a go, it will last you for such a long time, money well spent if you ask me.

Coat- c/o Glamorous, Tshirt- ASOS, Trousers- ASOS, Bag- Monki, Brogues- Bronx
Another day, another faux fur coat! I told you my collection was getting out of hand! This one is a little kerazy! It's oversized, monochrome, stripy and very gorrilla like but I like it.
A statement coat is one of those things I like to go all out on. It's great to have a few in-yer-face kinda coats amongst your simpler more versatile pieces, as we do wear them day in and day out here in the UK, so it's nice to add a bit of summin, summin to your look every now and again!

Christmas Gifts- Whittards

Tea, Chocolates, Alice in Wonderland Teas, Rose TeaAlice in Wonderland Mug
As you can tell from my Christmas Wish List post, I seem to have matured ever so slightly this year when it comes to my Christmas wishes. I think it's the fact I am now a fully fledged adult with a salary and no longer a student scraping together my pennies for the dress i've spied in Topshop. So with that, tea, coffee and hot beverages in general are high on my agenda when it comes to presents.

For me, when it comes to tea and coffee you simply cannot go wrong with Whittard's. A shop that I only really pop into at this time of year as it fills me with Christmas joy and cravings for a hot cup of something in a candle lit room with Mariah blasting through the speakers...

If you're a tea/coffee lover like me, or know someone who is then Whittard should definitley be your one stop shop for gifts this Christmas. They have a HUGE range of goodies for every tea loving person out there. Whether it's speciality teas, delicious chocolates or a novelty gift or two like this beautiful Alice in Wonderland set, literally i'm in love, there is something for everyone.

FYI; those Mallows with Caramel are EXACTLY as good as they sound and lasted all of 2 minutes in our household...

Dress- c/o French Connection, Shoes- ALDO via ASOS similar here & here

Party season is most definitely upon us and i'm having a long hard think about the kind of look I want to wear to my works do next week and the number of Christmas events that i'm attending throughout the festive period.
Thanks to French Connection, the search was made a hell of a lot easier with this stunning leather midi dress. The perfect mix of mannish cuts and feminine flair with it's racey leather finish and figure-hugging midi length. Adding some serious edge with these badass boots and I'm ready to hit the dance floor.

Christmas Wishlist

Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate, Mac 187 Duo Fibre Brush, Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher Concealer, Anthropologie Capri Candle, Anthropologie Mug, New York Fragrance by Next, Ugg Slippers, Camera Floor Lamp by BHS
The month of December is my all time favourite month of the year! I absolutely adore the build up to Christmas more than the actual day. The festivities, the colours, the sparkles and the family time, it's beyond perfect!
And with Christmas comes at least some wishing for goodies under that Christmas tree, so here is my wish list for that very special day.

Quite a grown up selection dontcha think? I'm rather surprised at myself but it's probably about darn time! And, not an item of clothing in sight! Working in the fashion industry, both, with my blog and career has provided me with enough clothes to last me a lifetime so this Christmas i'm going for make up, fragrance and home ware, which is something I never thought i'd be saying.

What do you think to my Christmas wish list? What are you asking Father Christmas for this year?

Obligatory Tartan

Glasses- c/o Lunettes Kollektion, Coat- ASOS,  Bag- Missguided (old similar here), Knit, Trousers, Shoes- c/o Ark
Happy Sunday everyone, hope you've all had a gooden!
Today was spent in my local area of Kentish Town grabbing a spot of brunch, hopping from coffee shop to cosy pub and FINALLY putting up some well needed Christmas decorations in our little flat.
Subconsciously or not, I found myself reaching for the obligatory Christmas tartan this morning when I got dressed for a day of Christmas merryment. The perfect pair of red tartan trousers to rock during the Christmas period dontcha think? A perfectly high waisted fit when teamed with a fine knit cropped jumper and a pair of chunky brogues, all of which are from Ark. Throw in some thick-framed specs and a fluffy bag and you've got festive geek chic down to a T!
