Camel Jersey Fur Trime Cape £65 River Island 
Buy here

I love the colouring of this cape and let's face it they're a huge trend this season and I think will be sticking around through to Spring. It's the perfect alternative cover up and I love the added fur trim and hood on this one. 

Soft Checked Scarf £17.99 Zara
Buy here

I love oversized scarves and I love the check print of this one in particular. There's so many available on the highstreet but I love how soft these ones are in Zara. And I also love their size and how they can be doubled up as a shawl and cover up etc. 

Khaki Knitted Cowl Neck Jumper Dress £45 River Island 
Buy here 

I am loving anything khaki at the moment and I think this jumper dress is gorgeous. Worn with thick tights and heels or even over the knee boots this will be perfect over the winter season. The high neck and long sleeves are sure to keep you warm too. 

MIMU 'Belle' Made in Englad Fur Bobble Hat £60 MIMU Official 
Buy here

I've always been a fan of hats they just keep you so warm and make you feel cosy and it always reminds me of this time of year for some reason. I've been after one of these hats for a while after I came across their Instagram page. I love the fur bobble on the top and I can't wait for mine to arrive. 
How cute is it though !? 

Tristan Black Low Heel Ankle Boots ££89 currently from £160 Carvela Kurt Keiger
Buy here 

You really can't go wrong with a pair of black boots and I love these ones so easy to get on and off and with a reasonable heel height makes it perfect for all that walking around getting those Christmas presents in. I love the gold trim detailing and it just adds that extra little something to the boot. 

Clean Leather Saddle Bag £30 Topshop 
Buy here 

Everyone needs a classic black bag in their collection and this saddle bag is right on trend. It's very 'celine' in the style of the boxy bag and it will literally go with almost every outfit With plenty of room to fit all the essentials in you can't go wrong with this classic. 

Snow Leopard Robe £34 Topshop 
Buy here 

So it's definitely getting colder now as the nights become darker and so it is the perfect time to invest in a nice cuddly dressing gown to keep you warm. I love how cute this is with the leopard hood. 

Dreamy Long Sleeve Tee & Leggings Pyjama Set £24 ASOS 
Buy here 

I just love these pjs they look so cosy and I love the Barbie pink writing on the front it sums up my bed time - dreamy. They'll be perfect for lounging around in and relaxing watching movies. 

Sammie Pleated Waist Cigarette Trousers £20 Missguided 
Buy here

I really love these trousers, particularly the pleated waist I just think it adds a little something to the black trousers. These would be so versatile and could be worn with a crop top or white shirt even a tee tucked in. These are definitely a wardrobe staple piece. 

Textured Fringe Crew Jumper £45 Topshop 
Buy here 

My last pick is this gorgeous jumper I adore the fringed hem and think it adds something different to the usual jumper. I love the knit as well and think it will go perfectly with some jeans and boots. 

Well, there are this paydays picks! Hope you like them as much as I do!

New York

For those of you that didn't know today is the day that I am finally heading to New York City!! And I literally can't express how excited I am to be finally heading to the US! 
I have never been to this side of the world before and so it's going to be such an exciting time with lots of adventures and firsts! 

I plan on doing so much and I have so much to cram into the 6 days I am away. Apart from the obvious shopping and by shopping I mean literally taking the saying 'shop until you drop' to a whole new level I also plan on doing a lot of sight seeing and visiting different famous attractions. 

I also plan on visiting the 9/11 Museum and memorial centre which I have wanted to do for so many years now. I know it is going to be extra emotional but I really want to experience that. 

I'll be trying to get a few posts up whilst I'm away but as soon as i'm back i'll be posting all about my New York travels and letting you guys in on all the exciting things I've been up to. 

If you guys can recommend anywhere for me to visit or go see then let me know!

Winter Evening Essentials

I think it is safe to say winter is officially here and it is becoming so so cold. This is why I thought it would be the perfect time to put together some of my favourite things available at the moment to get you prepared for the cold and dark nights which will keep you warm, cosy and comfortable. 

I don't know about you but I actually like the cold and dark nights as it means you can get in from a busy day of work or whatever you've been doing and just get some comfortable pjs or lounge wear on and get cosy. Sit back and relax whilst drinking hot chocolate and watching movies - I don't think anything beats it actually. Especially on a weekend when you have nothing else to do. 

I think one of the essentials during winter is of course the hot water bottle which keeps you extra toasty and I found that filling it up and putting it under the bed sheets 30 minutes before you go to bed helps warm the bed through and makes it that extra special when you get in. You can literally buy hot water bottles everywhere and they come in a variety of styles, sizes and colours. 

 I came across this one whilst I was browsing the internet one day - it's the 'Heart Fairisle Hot Water Bottle' from ASOS. In this gorgeous red colour and print it is perfect for Christmas time as well and oh so cute. Priced at £10.50 you can't really go wrong. 
You can buy it here

Another must is of course slippers! Definitely need these to make sure our tootsies are kept warm and snug. Now usually I don't take much notice of the ones I buy I just get those that look cosy but then I came across the UGG Scuffette II Slippers and it completely changed my view. They are so toasty and soft on the foot and if you love UGGS as much as I do then you're going to love these as well. They come in a variety of colours and other styles are also available. 
They are priced at £75 for these ones but I guess you get what you pay for.

Now if you're not into slippers then why not try some slipper socks instead. They are obviously lighter weight and are just a bit thicker than socks so you will barely even fee you have them on. And again whilst I was browsing the internet and looking on one of my favourite sites I came across these cute little Christmas Santa Cosy socks. They are so cute and remind me of being younger and wearing those tote socks that meant you didn't slip on hard surfaces ha! They are only £8 for a pair which I think is reasonable for the festive season. 
They are available to buy from here

Seeing as though I was already browsing the ASOS website looking for new items to add to my ever growing collection I came across this gorgeous Fleece Onesie with ears in a light pink colour. It is £28 and is absolutely adorable. I've never been a one for the onesie trend however this just looks way too cosy to pass up on on. It's so feminine and is one of the nicest ones i've seen.
It is available to buy here

I'm not usually a hot drink kind of girl they make me kind of flustered and warm (yes this is the point ha but it's just too much for me) however I can't deny the fact that at this time of year I love nothing more than a nice mug of hot chocolate with the occasional cream and chocolate sprinkles. And to those that know me it's no secret that I love Marie from Disney Aristocats and as soon as I seen this mug I knew it had to be added to the collection. It is £9.95 from the Disney store and to be honest I think this is reasonable I have a number of different ones and they've all lasted so long.

These are just a few of my favourite essentials at the moment but i'm thinking of running a blog post sometime over the next couple weeks on a huge winter wish list of items perfect for this time of year.

I'll be posting a lot more of the next couple of weeks and I apologise for my lack of posts recently it's been such a hectic time for me. 

But I will try to keep this more up to date and I will start doing a lot more hauls and things I am loving at the time. I have been collecting a few items recently ready to do a couple of posts.
So please subscribe and follow and keep an eye out for whats to come.
