Well, well, well, it's been a long time eh?! I've been so consumed by work that I don't seem to find time to blog anymore. It's more the photo taking that seems to be the issue- would be good if some clever person created a blogger mirror that takes your OOTD pics and uploads them directly to your blog!
In the mean time I will have to carry on with sporadic posts...sad times.

I was informed recently of a new website that has launched called Yourvine. It's a fun new websites that gives you fun challenges and rewards your efforts with discounts and prizes! Sounds pretty good eh? Well at the moment Time Out have a challenge with the top prize being 2 VIP tickets to their party on December 1st.

The ASOS challenge will be launching soon too- so excited!!

Go check Yourvine out now and join in the fun!

Shoe Dazzle UK

I got so excited this evening when I stumbled across ShoeDazzle! which is a new online shoe retailer- but not just any retailer. You take a fun quiz and get a personalised selection of shoes, boots and accessories. It's quite complicated to explain, but if you're familiar with Glossybox, it's a similar concept, after your first shoe order (which you also get 20% off of) you will be sent personalised recommendations from ShoeDazzle! stylists, and can get a new pair of shoes every month for the flat rate fee of £39.95 or if nothing takes your fancy, you can skip a month and won't be charged. 

I can't wait to see what the stylists get back to me with! Have any of you ever used ShoeDazzle! before? What are your thoughts?

Here is my Hips Don't Lie/Toddler look. I love these hareem pants from ASOS. They're jersey, so really comfy- it's like wearing pyjamas to work (it can sort of look that way too though!) I wore this get-up with my black spangly Toms.
What are your thoughts on Hareem Pants on big girls? They clearly accentuate my hips and thighs, but there's something quite liberating about tucking my tops in to pants nowadays. I used to always be on the hunt for longline tops to hide my bum and hips but with age, I'm starting realise that life is way too short for one 'look' and a million hang-ups!

I'm loving the new Dolce & Gabbana inspired star print popping up everywhere this season. I nabbed this cute pussybow dress from Tesco a few weeks back. It's so easy to just throw on with some leggings and a pair of boots for quite a formal work outfit.

The angle of the photos I took don't really do the dress justice, so I've added a picture from the website to give you a better idea of how lovely the dress is!

Over the past couple of months I have been loving this deep red/wine colour, I've got tops, trousers, undies, name it, I have it in this colour! There's a lady at work that always happens to point out when I'm wearing this colour too which is almost a daily occurance- embarassing! What I don't have though are a pair of boots- particularly in an oxblood colour leather (I've looked EV-REE-WHERRRRRRE!).

I've also had to sacrifice the usual urban photos for something more...uhhhm....homely! So I have for the past couple of days been snapping away before I leave the house to get to work.

What colours are you all loving this season?


Wine Coloured Chinos (with belt): Dorothy Perkins (UK Size 22)
Polka Dot Top: H&M (UK Size XL)

If you're interested to know what I wore on my feet, I went for my black glitter toms.

Today marked the day I decided to get my act in gear and return to blogging! I've taken an extended break to focus on other aspects and commitments in my life (I chair a few tenant groups within my area) so blogging had to take a back seat. I still follow 6782045274 different blogs on my Google Reader so it's time for me to get back in the loop!

So anyway, today was the press and blogger event for the AW11 collection at which was hosted at the flagship Nails Inc store in South Molton Street. We started off the evening having manicures whilst sipping pink champagne (yes, we were spoilt!). I opted to have my nails painted this divine camel-y colour called Fenchurch Street which is part of the new Autumn/Winter collection for Nails Inc.
After getting our nails did, my sis and I headed upstairs to where the magic was happening. It felt like walking in  to a girly haven...rails of clothes, rows of shoes and boots, coat racks of bags, boxes of cupcakes, bottles of champers. I fell in crazy mad love with so many items:
This gorgeous cashmere, batwing sleeved jumper from the Soft Grey range.
Again, from the Soft Grey range, this wooly t-shirt.
Looooooooove these leggings with leather patches!
Loving leopard print right now- this is another wooly-type of t-shirt- LOVE!

Michelle is modelling this gorgeous blueish black satchel, I think it was real leather- either way I need it in my life!

You may not be able to tell from the photo, but this blazer has a (p)leather collar, pockets and ELBOW PATCHES!! Yes, I adore elbow patches! This jacket didn't look too hot on the hanger but when the gorgeous Rosie modelled it for us all, I fell in love.

I didn't manage to grab a photo of the ultimate drool moment I had, probably because I was too busy drooling but how gorgeous are these patent Doc M's? Need these, like, right now!
 I'm not one to big up a company for feeding me cupcakes and quenching my thirst with Champagne, but OneStopPlus are definitely a website I will be frequenting VERY often. I can honestly say OneStopPlus has some beautiful stuff! There's definitely something for everyone, there's a huge range and loads of brands to choose from and loads of things you can get at a steal! What's more, the much coveted Carmakoma also have a few things on the site, so you can save shed-loads on postage! All in all it was a great evening and was lovely catching up with the gorrrrrrgeous Lauren, Deena, Naomi and Rosie.
