The Berlin Wall

Monday 30th March 2015

Last week I went on a lovely city break to Berlin and had the BEST time! I had so much fun sightseeing and shopping! I was blown away by the whole experience!! During my trip to Berlin I was lucky enough to visit the historic Berlin Wall which separated East and West Germany years ago. Today this impressive historical monument is a symbol of Germany’s historic past and the part that remains is known for it’s breathtaking art work – what better place to shoot outfit photos?!

I don’t know about you fashionistas but I really do enjoy wearing black, it’s one of my favourite colours; it looks great with everything and never goes out of fashion :). My love affair with black was my inspiration for my Berlin OOTD.

Berlin Bound

Tuesday 24th March 2015

Well hello there lovely fashionistas! I hope that you are all well and are having a wonderful day :).

Ok fashion friends! I have some exciting news to share! In just a couple of hours I’ll be on my way to Berlin! Yay! I’ve never been to Germany before and I’m really looking forward to seeing what it’s like! I’ve heard so many wonderful things about how amazing and beautiful it is and now I can find out for myself.

When I’m on holiday I always find time to do some sightseeing! I especially enjoy visiting historical landmarks and learning all about them. Whilst in Berlin I’m looking forward to visiting the iconic Berlin Wall and also heading up the amazing TV tower (which provides 360 views of Berlin from 207 meters high).

Sightseeing is very enjoyable but a city break is not complete without some retail therapy and being a self-confessed shopaholic I’ve already found out where Michael Kors and Louis Vuitton are located, not to mention H&M and Primark! I may just come back with some very special fashion finds 🙂

Fringing Style

Saturday 21st March 2015

Fashionistas, it’s official. 70’s fever has hit the fashion World! Fashion inspired by the clothing and accessories of the Sensational Seventies is all over the high street and this trend is going to be major throughout Spring and Summer 15. Yes, from bell bottom jeans to pretty paisley prints, to large floppy hats the 1970’s are definitely back on the fashion radar and fashion friends, this makes me so happy :). I just love seventies style!

Of course nothing says 1970’s bohemian chic more than the colour tan, suede and lots of fringing and I have used this theme as my inspiration for today’s OOTD. My gorgeous suede fringe jacket is one of my all time favs and holds a special place in my wardrobe. I just adore everything about it! From the trendy cropped design to the gorgeous suede material and fantastic quality, I LOVE it all. Being vintage, my jacket is also unique and one of a kind which is a big plus – no one else is likely to have one just like it. Even though I love keeping up with the latest trends and having the next best fashion fix I also like wearing one-off pieces that nobody else has. I find the best place to look for vintage is of course – charity shops which is where I discovered my fabulous jacket for a bargain £12.

Love Thy Heels

Thursday 19th March

Love Thy Heels is a unique company with one focus in mind – happy cared-for high heels and happy feet!
This new business specialises in two of my favourite items – shoes and bag and if like me you LOVE wearing high heels and haven’t previously heard of Love Thy Heels then you are certainly in for a treat!

Have you ever been in a situation when the pain of wearing your high heels becomes too much and you just want to take them off? I know I have. Even though I LOVE wearing high heels after a long day or night sometimes my poor feet just can’t take anymore. But then it is always difficult to know what to do with your discarded shoes? Well you will be pleased to know that Love Thy Heels have provided a solution to this problem by designing a special fold away cotton bag just for this purpose.

When not in use the Love Thy Heels cotton foldaway bag is stored inside a cute carry pouch compact enough to fit inside even the smallest handbag or clutch – both carry an attractive logo. But when folded out it has more than enough space inside it to store a pair of heels, so no more cramming heels into your over packed handbag or carrying them by hand after a long night out!

Pretty Flowers

Monday 16th March 2015

I don’t know about you fashion friends but I’m totally loving florals at the moment. For me florals are the definition of Spring and are just perfect for this time of year. They are one of my favourite prints and always remind me of flowers, lighter evenings and the promise of sunshine.

If you follow me on Instagram you may recognise my floral top from one of my Instapics! I shared a quick snap of this pretty Dorothy Perkins top a few weeks ago. I spotted it in store and instantly liked the striking and attractive look created by the black lace collar detail against the very attractive pink and red flowers. Can you believe that this floral beauty costs just £7 from Dorothy Perkins?! I expected it to be much more expensive and couldn’t resist adding this strikingly beautiful top to my Spring collection.
