The Glitterati

TOPSHOP jumpsuit & jumper

EBAY boots

Hello again! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got everything you wished for. I got some absolutely beautiful gifts, including some Whistles ankle boots and a new leather jacket from my parents, along with a tonne of luxury beauty stuff! My big brother got me a new digital camera, because although of course I love my DSLR, it's not the most practical of beasts. I wanted something compact that would be suitable for taking with me when I go to London from time to time, or for holidays. As you can imagine I was chuffed to bits when I opened my little Nikon Coolpix from him, what an amazing gift!

From my main man I got this beyond beautiful Toppers jumpsuit. I actually opened it on Christmas Eve Eve (yeah, that's a thing) and so I wore it on Christmas day. I paired it with my cropped fluffy jumper to keep me cosy, and accessorised with various ribbons and bows that I acquired whilst unwrapping presents. ;) I am definitely in love with this very glittery, very festive outfit. It's perfect for this time of year. My only gripe with it is that glitter gets absolutely everywhere. And I mean everywhere. I did plan to wear it on New Year's Eve but I'm going to a friends' house and I'm not sure they'll appreciate hoovering up after my trail of sparkles for weeks afterwards...

Does anyone have any tips for getting rid of excess glitter? I guess once it's been through the wash it might calm down a bit. 

What have you all got planned for New Year's Eve?

Hard Rock


NEW LOOK boots*

RI jacket



Can you believe we're only two sleeps away from Christmas day? I am really getting excited now. I love all the festivities in the lead up to Christmas. The shopping, the wrapping, the markets, the parties - I can't get enough. But it's only when we reach a couple of days before the big day that I really turn into an over excitable child. Christmas actually came early for me today, I spent the day with my no. 1 opening presents, eating tonnes of food, and watching endless Christmas films. I got a beautiful glittery Topshop jumpsuit which I think I'll wear on *the day*, and a huge box of Champneys goodies, amongst other things! Needless to say, I am feeling like a very lucky girl today.

I thought I'd share this outfit with you which is what I wore to my work Christmas party on Friday night. I didn't really know what to wear and didn't feel like going all out with a dress so I threw this jumpsuit on instead. It's perfect for a wintery night out because it's actually really comfy and warm! I also wore it out for dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe on my 21st Birthday, so it's clearly a firm favourite of mine.

I donned my new favourite shoes again for a pop of colour against my oh so predictable all-black outfit, and of course on the actual night I finished off the look with a dramatic smoky eye and a huge pair of lashes. If you can't wear giant lashes at Christmas then when can you?!

I've just realised I've reached over 500 followers on both Bloglovin' and GFC, what a great Christmas present! I hope whatever you guys are getting up to this holiday season, that you have a really wonderful time. 

Lots of Christmas love to all of my gorgeous readers.

'Tis the Season


ZARA shirt


NEW LOOK shoes* 


Hey guys, remember me?! After what seemed like the longest time ever, I've finally managed to find some time to sit down and write a post. Did ya'll miss me? I suppose uni deadlines, work, and general festivities have gotten in my way a bit over the last couple of weeks. But I can now officially say that my Christmas shopping is completely done and wrapped up, and I've handed in all my uni assignments for the first semester. So technically I should have all the time in the world to blog now, right?! Well, that's what I always tell myself, but it never usually works out that way.  

This is just a simple date night kind of outfit. Ripped jeans and a classic white shirt, paired with my favourite boyfriend coat and a fedora. Not to mention my beautiful new party shoes. I've wanted a pair of high heel ankle boots for a while and these plum coloured peep toes fit the bill perfectly, am I right? I think they'll definitely be my shoe of choice for this party season.

Have you all decided what you're wearing to those all-important Christmas parties this year?

My Black Heart

NEW LOOK shirt*

H&M bag

TOPSHOP riding pants

EBAY boots

So everyone knows about the burgundy Burberry shirt by now, right? The one that Victoria Beckham wore and then Topshop did a dupe. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Well, it turns out New Look have a dupe as well, and at £17.99 it's a lot easier to handle than the £38 Topshop effort. However unsurprisingly, it is pretty difficult to find in stores now. After much umm-ing and ahh-ing I decided instead of running all over town in search of the proper Burberry dupe, I'd just settle for the black one. We all know how much I like an all black ensemble and it fits really well into my wardrobe, so I'm very pleased with my purchase. Even if it's not quite Victoria Beckham.

I paired my new shirt with my riding pants, an absolute favourite of mine. They're so much better than regular leggings, they're more durable, they're thicker (and therefore warmer), and they're comfortable. They tick all the boxes and so get a lot of wear from me. I've also thrown on my trusty leather jacket and some ankle boots. These boots are a replacement for a pair I bought last year and wore to absolute death until they literally fell apart. They lasted me a whole year though and at only £17 I was quite impressed. This time round I bought the same pair but with a suede finish as opposed to matte, just for a change.

I think I might wear this outfit (or something similar) when I go to the Clothes Show Live on Monday. I'm over the moon because I've always wanted to go and this year I managed to win myself two tickets. Are any of you lot going? Maybe I'll see you there!

Catch you later.
