Pyjamas: Eberjey
For me, Christmas Eve always holds an element on tradition - and one of those traditions is wearing brand new pyjamas (they sit on my bed all day ready to be unwrapped!). So I'm on the look out for this year's set and these Eberjey beauties are high on the list!

Christmas Gift Guide for Men

Tuesday, 25 November 2014

For me, the most difficult people to shop for at Christmas are the men (ahem, boys!). I see so many things in the shops that would be perfect for either a) a teenager, b) a toddler and c) immature lads but nothing for the grown ups! Fortunately the online stores are to the rescue with so many ideas for men with taste and who would rather some Monc Blanc than a racing car that would only see the light of day once or twice.
Who are the most difficult people you find to shop for are?

Sports Bra: Alexander Wang x H&M
Like the ninny I am, in the rush to get my hands on the Alexander Wang x H&M collection I accidentally forgot to change  my shipping address to my current one - and had this ordered to my Parents' house! So I've had to wait till going home to visit to get my hands on it (and it was well worth the wait!).
Did you manage to get anything from the collection before it sold out?

Follow Your Dreams with Symthson

'Panama' Diary - Smythson
If you're still looking for ideas for Christmas presents then look no further than the beautiful Panama collection by Smythson. I was fortunate enough to receive this beautiful cross-grain leather notebook, gift wrapped and boxed and with a distinctive leather aroma that hits you as soon as you open the box.
The Symthson story started in 1908 with Frank Symthson creating the world's first practical, portable diary affectionately named 'the Panama hat of books'. The books are ideal for travelling as they are extremely lightweight and pliable, without sacrificing on quality.
I can think of a few people already who would love something from this collection for Christmas!
What do you think?

The Minimalist Gift Guide

Saturday, 8 November 2014

RIGHT It's a full week into November I really need to start thinking about what to buy people for Christmas. When I was younger I was super organised with my gifts, I'd have list after list and even know what cookies I was going to bake for everyone well in advance of the John Lewis gift catalogue being released. However, in my old age I have become a lot less efficient and so am forcing myself to think early about what to buy. It's men I tend to find are the most difficult, in particular my Dad who just doesn'! By stark contrast my Mum is the easiest person in the world to shop for - books, cosmetics, house items she is a breathe of fresh air for shoppers. So here is my minimalist's guide to Christmas and I will be posting a few more of these in the run up to the festive season (a 'men's' one I think is in order).
I will get some outfit posts up this week, I've had trouble with the SD card the photos were on so hopefully that'll all be sorted by the end of the weekend :). I've been slack, I know but I'm going home for a few days in a couple of weeks so fully intend to dedicate some decent time to the blog (and Christmas shopping, of course!).
Thanks for reading!

Dress: Whistles

I'm really trying to buy more things that I can wear for work, and I really think this Whistles dress fits the bill don't you?

What do you think?! I've got some outfit posts coming up just having problems importing them at the moment (grrrrr).

Thanks for reading!
