The V Day outfit

The big V day is coming up very soon (to be precise it is 22 days) and the one thing a girl worries about it ‘what am I going to wear for dinner.’ For single girls it is all about going out with the girls and having some cocktails, so you can forget about the dreaded V day!!

I came across some great cheap going out dresses, which are perfect for a dinner date on Mary Jane Fashion. I find going for dinner one of the hardest things to dress up for as you don’t want to go too over the top, but then you want to show you have made an effort. I am really into collar dresses, and what is great, is that you can wear them to work, on a girls night out, shopping trip.. they are just easy to wear and they always look good.

Here are a few of my favs for a valentines day look

A black polka dot collared smock dress is an easy win for a date night

A tartan dress always goes down well!!

I LOVE the pattern on this aztec shift dress šŸ™‚

Go for something a little different, maybe opt for a coloured playsuit

OR this sexy little number, peplum dresses are always a good choice

Which one is your fav? Be sure to check out Mary Jane Fashion.. enjoy!! x

Your Alter Ego

I was invited to an amazing event a few weeks back, but I couldn’t attend šŸ˜¦ it was forĀ The Colour Studio, which isĀ a bespoke colouring service from award winning British bridal shoe brand Rainbow Club. The Colour Studio offers a bespoke service whereby colour technicians will hand dye any pair of shoes from 3 Rainbow Club collections to the colour of your choice. AMAZING right!?

The blogger eventĀ involved an exciting design challenge that celebrated the festive seasonā€™s ultimate accessory,Ā yourĀ alter ego!! The challenge was toĀ transform a plain pair of shoes into a sparkly pair of heels. I was so upset to miss out on the event so they sent me the pair of shoes which I had requested previously!! I LOVE them.. thanks so muchĀ Ā Rainbow ClubĀ and the lovelyĀ Kelsey for sending me them! They are going to be my new Christmas shoes šŸ™‚

British Fashion Awards

This is my first post since July.. haven not posted on my blog for a while, it’s made me realise how much I miss it, so I thought I would do a come back post!!

Last night I attended the British Fashion Awards thanks to the amazing guys at Hidden Fashion. It was one night I will NEVER forget. We arrived at the amazing ColosseumĀ Ā and as soon as we walked in we were given a glass of champagne, the champagne did not stop for the first 2 hours!! Myself and my girlĀ Tash were mingling and drinking far too much champers for a Monday night. The awards then commenced and WOW we were in a room with Kate Moss,Ā Sienna Miller,Ā Nicholas Kirkwood,Ā Lulu Guinness,Ā Arizona Muse, Christopher Kane,Ā Alexa Chung!! OK too many to names to name, but it was just incredible.. seeing Kate Moss run up on stage and accept herĀ special recognition award was a real special moment! I can’t name all my fav moments, but it was one memorable night!!

Now, onto the after party! We somehow got into VIP and suddenly we were rubbing shoulders with some pretty special people, speaking to Daisy Low was very fun and having my photo taken with Christopher Kane was pretty up there too. The party then moved onto the St Martins Hotel, where we chatted, drank lots of amazing tequilaĀ cocktails and danced the night away.

Thank you again to the lovely guys at Hidden FashionĀ and of courseĀ theĀ British Fashion AwardsĀ for an amazing night!

I wore a dress, which I had been dying to wear for a few months now, it is the amazing three floor dress – def worth checking them out!

Quite blogger.. NO more!!

I have been so quite on my blog for the past few months, so I thought I would share with you what I have been up to over the past few months, well I won’t tell you everything otherwise this would be a very long blog post!!!

I have been to Dubai, partied with the girls, ran the race for life, partied again, and again oh and booked a holiday to Marrakech (I CANNOT WAIT!)

Here are a few pics from all the fun things I have been up to.. of course wearing different outfits to everything šŸ˜‰

Firstly, the most exciting trip – I went to Dubai with one of my best friends (yes it was about the 6th time!!) but I love it there. I am wearing a very old Topshop dress that always comes out on holiday!

I ran the race for life with my little sister Alice, which was so lovely.

I then partied with the girls.. lots and lots!!

Here I am wearing a white dress from River Island (I can only wear this when I am tanned!!)

Here I am wearing a beauty from Miss Selfridge!

Last weekend was such beautiful weather me and my 2 bestfriends partied in the park.. well not quite partied but drank lots and it did feel like a bit of a party! I am wearing a playsuit from LOVE (Topshop)

Last few weeks in the land of GG..

I have been quite silent recently, so I thought I would come out of the wood works and share with you what I have been up to! Mostly partying with the girls oh and I did do the London Marathon (hardest thing I have done in my life, but an amazing experience)

There have been birthdays, celebrations, and just in general lots of nights out – which means lots of shopping, as you have to have a new dress for each occasion right?!

Here are a few photos to share..

This was for my best friends birthday.. Dress is from ASOS

Bad piccy!! But this was when all my friends from Birmingham went to Liverpool (amazing night out!) Dress is again from ASOS

Me and my gorgeous bessie Scarlet out for a few drinks wearing all of Topshop

In need of a cocktail dress?

I have been so busy over the past few weeks I have not had time to blog.. which upsets me slightly. But I couldn’t resist writing a blog post about the stunning dresses on Girl Meets Dress. I am a huge fan of the cocktail dress range.. from uber sexy to ultra sophisticated. Every girl needs a statement cocktail dress to wear on a good girly night out or on a special occasion

I first came across this site a year ago, and I remember thinking what an amazing idea it was to hire dresses to wear and then send them back. I have an awful obsession of only being able to wear a dress once on a night out (I can maybe wear it a year later) It is bad I know..but it means Girl Meets Dress is the perfect site for a girl like me!!

I thought I would put together my top 5 cocktail dresses from Girl Meets Dress.

JOVANI – Blue Sequin Dress hire here

GMD 8

HERVE LEGER – V-Neck Bandage Dress hire here

GMD 10

CARVEN – Striped Cut Out Dress hire here

What to wear on Valentine’s Day

Every girls needs a pretty dress for their date on Valentine’s Day. I found some total beauties in Miss Selfridge.

I am not really a Valentine’s Day type of girl, but if I was, the perfect date would be dinner at the OXO tower. I have been a few times and the view is just amazing – you can see the whole of London. The cocktails are pretty special and the food is too. They are doing a Valentine’s Day set menu, I just had a peak at it and it looks incredible, this desert sounds to die for – Chocolate plate
(marmalade and caramelia truffle, caraway and hazelnut mousse, cinnamon and coffee smoke
white chocolate fondant, blonde chocolate tart) – AMAZINGGGG!!

So (in my little world) if I was going to the OXO tower I would be wearing either of the dresses below, as I love them..

Jaquard Shift Dress

Blue Scallop Hem Lace Dress

Mini Pu Peplum Dress

Lace Insert Drape Dress

What are your plans for Valentine’s day? Girls night out?

Next Press Day SS13

I attended the SS13 Next Press day last week at the beautiful St Martins Lane Hotel and my gosh, did it make me wish summer was here already!! It was full of beautiful bikinis, summer dresses, flip flops, kimonos, basically everything that reminded me of the summer holidays!

Next always showcase their products so well at press days. I am a huge fan of their shoes ā€“ so here are a few of my favs


(the electric blue ones would go so well with a white summery dress)

I fell in love with their under wear range, such a great range of colours and designs.Ā  It is always important for a girl to feel good in some pretty underwear, so this is a must all year round not just for summer!!

Next also have some lovely home ware products which I personally LOVE…from funky arms chairs to stylish cushions, they have everything to make your house look chic and sophisticated.

It is always important for a girl to have ā€˜The dress which they can wear to special occasions, work events, a girlā€™s night out etc. I saw this stunning dress and thought that is definitely a dress every girl must have in their wardrobe.


Yummy treats were given to us, including macaroons, sandwiches, mini cup cakes and of course delicious Belliniā€™s (my fav!!)

Thanks to Next for such a stunning press day and for making me want it to be summer already!
