It’s always the same isn’t it? You either go with lots of pennies in your bank and see nothing, or go just before payday and find everything you could ever want. My biggest guilty pleasure is online shopping. You can just settle down with a nice glass of wine and browse to your hearts content without all the hustle and bustle of actually being in the shops. Its my way of winding down and relaxing. There always seems to be sales aswell, which is super dangerous. I just add heaps of stuff I know I’ll probably never wear in my basket and find myself justifying it. “Of course I’ll wear glitter platforms boots, for £19.99 how can I say no?”.
Lucky for me it’s coming into winter so I actually have an excuse to have a little shop. I love dressing for colder weather. Getting all wrapped up in jackets, hats and scarfs. I think it’s because I’m always cold, I love being cosy. Let’s face it, our summers aren’t exactly warm so on those days where I brave bare legs I always end up freezing! Bring on the layers I say!
I love the trends that come every autumn/winter. Glitter, faux fur, velvet, feathers and everything fun. All those lovely things you see and think that’s perfect for Christmas or New Year’s Eve. Pairing a leather look skirt with a furry handbag and glittery socks is my dream. I actually got a really nice furry clutch from Primark a few weeks ago, its different dark blue hues and I just love it. Michael said it reminds him of Sulley from Monsters Inc but he’s cool so I’m happy with that comparison.
Anyway, I’ve complied a few little gems I’ve got my eye on.
Of course, this year will be slightly different with having a five month old over the festive period but it definitely won’t stop me glamming up a bit. My birthday is between Christmas and New Year so that is an even bigger excuse to purchase something sparkly.
