Thursday, 16 November 2017 | No comments


Mr C and I attended the Fashion Show MK event at the beautiful Chichley Hall. After attending the S/S event earlier on in the year I was super excited to what was in store for A/W!

The night started with some beautiful live music and then a brief interval before we got to see all the fashion!

We were treated to some gorgeous looks from brands and boutiques such as FitLete Clothing, Shokushu Boutique, NoaNoa, Moodis Fashion, Romi Boutique and the collection from Blogger/Influencer, Scarlett London. If you want to see more looks from the night click here to go to the Instagram page.

There were a great range of clothing for men and women on show. I definitely feel ready for the Christmas party season after seeing some of these beautiful dresses. There were some incredible pieces from Emma Semento, if you want to stand out from the crown and be unique then these are for you!

Who said pastels were for Spring? If you want a more softer look for Christmas parties then make sure you check out the Scarlett London and Jody Bell Collection.

The gorgeous Oliva Buckland!

Can we just talk about this hair style for a moment (or two) please! Gorgeous isn't it. Hair and makeup were done by Jenny Buckland Makeup and Tricia D'Costa. This makes me want to run out and get hair extensions!

Here's what I wore on the night. One of my favourite skirts from Tu Clothing, new shoes from H&M and my favourite necklace!

Thank you to GemMedia Events for a wonderful night, I'm looking forward to S/S18 now!

Lifestyle | Thors Tipi Bar

Tuesday, 14 November 2017 | No comments


Last Friday Mr C and I took a trip to Intu Milton Keynes to visit the newly installed Thor's Tipi Bar. If you haven't heard of them before Thor's are Christmas pop-up tipi bars which are based in city centres such as York, Leeds, Hull and Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. They will be at Intu MK in Oak Court from now until the 31st December.

I wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't heard of them before. Was it going to be a giant tent, how would I keep warm and what exactly would it look like inside? Walking up to it I realised that I was completely wrong, a huge inviting tipi was awaiting us. Once inside it was like a small part of Scandinavia had dropped into Intu. Imagine a roaring fire, mulled wine, giant wooden benches and faux fur blankets covering them.

There is a good size bar inside with plenty of drinks to choose from like beer, mulled wine, soft drinks or a 'pimped up hot chocolate'. Keeping warm was not an issue, there is a large fire pit in the middle and then heaters on the edges blowing in hot air. The vibe inside was very chilled, we sat for ages with our drinks, chatting and planning which shops to pop into before they closed!

So, if you want somewhere new to sip some delicious mulled wine or fancy a hot chocolate to perk you up after all that Christmas shopping then head to Thor's and enjoy!
