Cute Little Cath Kidston Wishlist!

Okay, so I have my bestie's mom's birthday coming up, which gives me an excuse to have a nosey around Cath Kidston next time I'm in Liverpool (a treat that shopping with my man doesn't usually afford without a good reason) so I thought I'd have a look online to see what's new, and OH. MY. GAWD . . . 

Cath Kidston Elgin Ditsy Luggage Strap and Tag Set - £12. This has me thinking about christmas gifts - squeeee! Soz aba me.

Cath Kidston Clocks Tea Cosy - £22. Okay, so I don't have a teapot, but I think I'm going to have to get one just so it can wear this!

Cath Kidston Alarm Radio Sewing Basket - £58. I'm always losing my various ragged bits of cotton and needles, so I need a good £58 home for them right? Right.

Cath Kidston Giraffe & Cheapstow Rose Socks - £12. I'm a huge Safari print fan, so I adore the little giraffes on these - cute!

So thank you Norma because I'll be all up in Cath's face this weekend getting all girly in the name of gifting - hurrah! Do we have any Cath fans here?

J - Not kidding.

Shore Projects British Watch Review!

I'm pretty sure this French Connection Hummingbird Dress has been hanging out in my wardrobe since last year. I managed to nab it in the sale for only £49 (originally £120) but never got round to wearing it...Until last weekend! I hope you'll agree it's absolutely beautiful, I love the print and even spotted it on Cami from The Originals. Mmm hm. ;)

I paired it with another sale bargain (say hello to a different, slightly larger Mi Moneda necklace) and my adorable new watch from Shore Projects.

I tend to wear more silver than gold, so opted for the Poole watch in brushed silver/white. The straps can we changed to create a different look, so I picked this hella cute mint polka dot which I think is ultra girly and sweet! It's worth noting the straps are really easy to change, it took me less than 5 seconds to put this one on.

I think I'm becoming a bit of a timepiece addict - my boyfriend's crazy watch obsession is finally rubbing off on me. I now want the Portland version of this one and a few different straps! I better pop them on my Christmas list. ;)

Do you like polka dots? Do you have any unworn gems in your wardrobe?

T - Feeling *mint*.

Spiral Galaxy Neptune Print Backpack Review!

Like Pharrell and Kanye, I love a good backpack. My latest one is this epic galaxy print backpack from Spiral. If you read J's post last week, you'll already know all about this hot new UK brand!

I was lucky enough to be sent this beaut for styling in an outfit post and I couldn't believe the quality when it arrived... It's incredible for the small price tag! The Galaxy Neptune OG backpack is only £24.99 and I feel too cool for school rockin' it with my favourite Wildfox gear. I actually use backpacks all the time, they're great for carrying my camera/blogging kit and for general work stuff, so I'm going to get a lot of use out of this one.

Spiral have tons of other awesome prints and styles, so be sure to check them out via their website or at one of their other stockists such Next and Selfridges!

Are you a fan of galaxy print? Would you wear this?

T - Out of this world.

Leopard, Leather and Daniel Footwear Plunge Heels!

Thanks to Daniel Footwear I am the proud owner of a pair of their hot new Daniel White Plunge Cut Out Sandals (£129), and they are absolutely beautiful! 

I'd been dying to take them out all week and a lunch date on sunny Saturday was the perfect time to show them off. I put them into a simple jeans, shirt and leather look for a bit of daytime glam. To the outfit! . . .

Outfit: Shirt - Episode c/o House Of Fraser, Jacket - Pull & Bear, Jeans - Wildfox, Shoes - c/o Daniel Footwear, Bag - Disaster Designs c/o Lisa Angel. 

They are so fabulous, I can't even deal. The black suede sharp lines against the white leather geometric panels are reminiscent of something a kick ass female superhero would rock, and I was definitely strutting about like I had a secret hidden in my cape ;)

I can walk in pretty much anything so the 4.5 inch heel isn't a problem for me, but these heels are so delicate and lightweight that you don't even feel the height anyway! The sole is flexible and the leather upper hugs your foot so they're really easy to walk in. You can actually forget they're even on. I've never done ballroom dancing of any sort, but they totally remind me of the little sandals the Strictly girls wear, so feminine on the foot. I could easily wear these shoes all day just for the shimmy in my step!

I am a huge fan of monochrome with leopard print, it sounds a bit off the wall if you haven't seen it together before but I think it totally works. I love this shirt from Episode at House Of Fraser, it's always crisp and fresh and the leopard trim and gold buttons are the perfect accents. I might wear this shirt again with these shoes, but tucked into a black leather knee skirt, yum :)

Daniel have really killed it with the Plunge, which also comes in a gorgeous cobalt blue (even more superhero-like!) - POW! These ones would look awesome with some luxe smart joggers and a satin cami.

Beauts right?! How would you style them?  

If you entered our competition to win £50 to spend at Daniel Footwear then keep your eyes peeled on their Twitter, Facebook and Competitions pages for the winner's name! It could be you!

J - Take the Plunge.
