Hi!   I just wanted to write a quick post and wish everyone a very merry Christmas!  December has not been the happy jolly month that I had hoped for but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a good start to 2016!       Thank you to everyone that has read my posts over the year and to all that have left comments, I will do my best to start replying from the new year and reading more new blogs! I'm taking a few days off from the blog and will be back on the 30th December!   Have a lovely Christmas day!   Much Love   Natalie

Hi! Christmas for me this year is going to be unusually quiet, it will be the first year in a long time I won't be going to a works Christmas Party. I've decided not to buy anything new and just use what I have in my wardrobe for any evenings out, my work Christmas lunch and Christmas Day! This is what I will be wearing for: Christmas Day I bought this skirt from Hollie when she had an Instagram sale a few weeks ago. It's such a pretty pale pink, I thought it would make a nice colourful addition to my wardrobe. Will you be buying new outfits for the party season or shopping your wardrobe? Much Love   Natalie   x

Lifestyle | Winterlicious/Christmas Tag

Image
Hi! I've been reading a few Christmas tags this December but some of the questions I couldn't really get the right answers for a few of the questions so, I have mixed questions from Christmas Tags and the Winterlicious Tag! Favourite Winter Lip Product     This has saved my sore, dry lips this winter. This is at the top of my US shopping wishlist! Most Worn Clothing Item in December I absolutely love this dress from Junarose, it's definitely my go to weekend outfit!   Most Worn Accessory     To cover bad hair days and to keep me warm       Favourite Christmas Song   Elton John - Step into Christmas!   As soon as I hear this song I know Christmas is on the way.     Favourite Christmas Film    I had trouble deciding on just one so I'm going to say Home Alone 2 and The Holiday!   What are your plans for Christmas?   These pictures pretty much sum up my Christmas day but with more people of course!

Hi! So, today is part 1 of Shop My Wardrobe for Christmas. I didn't want to buy more new stuff to wear this Christmas so I've raided my wardrobe to find my outfits for this festive season! Here is what I wore for: Evening Out It was nice to get this dress out again, I'd only managed to wear it twice over the summer. It is quite thin so I had to put a vest top underneath. I've noticed quite a few floral dresses over on ASOS so I have a put a few of my favourites down below!   Chi Chi London   Flutter Sleeve Maxi Dress New Years Eve I don't enjoy going out at new year anymore so I think we will either be at home or just going to the local pub. I'm going for comfy casual if we do venture out!  Jacket - New Look Shirt Dress- New Look Leggings- Sainsburys Boots - New Look Necklace - Independent Boutique   Hope you are all enjoying the party season so far!   Much Love   Natalie   x

Style | The Perfect Work Dress

Image
Hi! I do love a good blog sale, don't you? Anyway, a few weeks ago the lovely Hollie from Pretty Big Butterflies had an Instagram sale. I always seem to miss blog sales but this time I didn't and I was glad! I managed to get two fabulous items, the first one is this gorgeous dress from Zizzi. I saw it and knew that it would be ideal for work. The material is really nice and thick which gives the dress a good solid shape and fits me really well. I've worn it so many times already and had lots of compliments, this is definitely my best clothing bargain by far! Thank you Hollie! Dress - Zizzi (no longer available) Leggings - Sainsburys Boots - Asda (Available in store)   Much Love   Natalie x

Style | A Casual Gap

Image
  Hi!     This is a follow on from my brand focus post about GAP that I wrote the other day. I love this outfit because it's ideal for now, slightly chilly but not enough to get the winter coat out. However, when it does get cold I can happily add layers.       I do have my eyes slightly closed but I still love this picture. The location just has Autumn written all over it, I always thought that I was a town girl at heart but now we've moved closer to the countryside I find myself falling in love more and more with the fields, trees, mud and getting stuck behind endless tractors!      Top - Gap Cardigan - Gap Jeans - New Look Shoes - Primark (Old)   Which way home?   Have you ever tried items from GAP?   Much Love   Natalie x

Style | No Light

Hi! I've been trying to find places inside the house to take pictures but it just isn't the same as the beautiful outdoors, I'm already missing the summer evenings, Autumn is beautiful but the 5pm darkness is just miserable isn't it? I just wanted to share this quick outfit I wore a week ago. I bought the dress online from F21, I have been looking for short sleeved black dress for awhile and this ticked all the boxes. It's perfect for the warm office and a quick casual weekend look. My only bugbear is that it has gone quite bobbly after 2 washes but, for £12 I can put up with that!   I also got this necklace, I think it goes quite nicely with the dress. And some new boots from New Look, they are so comfortable! Dress - F21 Leggings - Sainsburys Necklace - F21 Boots - New Look   Much Love   Natalie x
