Christmas Gift Guide 2018

There's two types of people at Christmas, people who are making a list and checking it twice or the kind that just leave buying Christmas presents to the last minute, I would say I'm quite organised but always manage to forget something! But if you have left it to the last minute with Christmas just around the corner, check out my Christmas gift guide below to inspire you before it's too late!

Keeping My Wardrobe in Check

It's that time of year again where checks are everywhere and I can't get enough, my favourite girly flick Clueless always springs to mind, with the most memorable 90s look below where Cher and Dionne arrive at the school entrance, wearing matching checked skirt suits. Don't they look fabulous? If only I could pull off that yellow...

The classic check trend is very versatile being worn in a variety of styles and colour options (think mustards, browns and greys) especially for office wear. I'm all about rocking a sophisticated checked blazer with black jeans and a tee or cute pinafore dresses over roll neck jumpers, mini skirts under a knitted jumper the options are endless! Below are two check outfits that I have worn over Autumn/Winter that I absolutely love and hopefully inspire you to get your check on!

From Birmingham to Santorini: Planning the Perfect Party Trip

There are many reasons why Santorini is very popular among travellers, from its beautiful sunsets, glittering waters to the white and blue houses that form its unique skyline making it a firm favourite amongst photographers, but what you may not be aware of is that it's also a party destination. Yes it may not be as wild as other islands like Mykonos, but it is still a great travel destination whether you want to catch the performance of world-renowned DJs or you just want to have a fun girly trip away from the 9-5.

As always when planning a party trip with the girls you need to think carefully about choosing the right time to visit the Greek island and planning other parts of the holiday which will help you enjoy the perfect party trip to Santorini and surrounding islands.

Wearing a Sequin Dress to the Christmas Party

 'Tis the season to be sparkly! If you haven’t had the chance to dress up yet than there is no time like the present as CHRISTMAS PARTY season is upon us and that means lots and lots of sequins! For me it's the only time of year where I can dance the night away in a sparkly frock and luckily for me a collab email from Boohoo landed in my inbox asking me to pick out a party dress for myself. As you can imagine I picked the sparkliest dress on the website! 

The Sequin Dress I am wearing today comes in gold and black but as it's Christmas I had to go for the more daring colour - gold! The shift style dress is the perfect length for my petite frame and the fact it has sleeves is an added bonus, as I'm not a big fan of my arms. I also thought the v neckline may be a bit daring for me but it wasn't as low as I originally thought. And for £35 I think it's an amazing and affordable quality piece for Christmas parties!
