Britney Spears Professional Haircare at Lidl! #LidlSurprises indeed!

We ADORE honorary Rawrgirl Britney Spears and she can do no wrong in our eyes, so it is with great intrigue that we seek to investigate her range of Britney Spears Professional Haircare, which should be hitting our local Lidl stores today with prices starting at a pop princess hair flipping £1.99!

Images c/o the Lidl Offers page, but it's too good not to share so we hope they won't mind!

The hairbrushes are £1.99 each girls - £1.99?! You couldn't even buy I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman on cd single for £1.99 back in the day, but now you can nab a *piece of* (geddit?!) Brit for just a couple of coins! Other items in the range are various electrical hair stylers ranging from £4.99 to £11.99, and as superfans we pretty much only care that the line has Britney's name on it and an easy on the eye black and gold finish to be honest, but with a pretty impressive 3 year warranty on each piece you have to admit that both Brit and Lidl must be confident in their performance so hey, we're in!

This may be worth an early morning pre-work visit to our local Lidl stores, with a week to go until Christmas and such low low prices you can be sure that these will not hang around so if you want one, you better work bitch!

Swarovski Christmas Perfect Gift Collection! #SwarovskiPerfectGift

AS IF Christmas is only 10 days away. Waaaah! If you're still looking for gift ideas, Rawr faves Swarovski have recently launched their Perfect Gift collection... You may have already spotted their Christmas advert on TV starring the beautiful Miranda Kerr!

As an extra special Christmas treat, our friends at Swarovski sent Jade and I a sparkly parcel full of jewellery pieces for the festive season. As we're both huge Swarovski fangirls, it took less than 60 seconds for us to bling ourselves up with our new jewels! Cue lots of sparkly snaps...

Swarovski Tennis Bracelet
Miranda Kerr Crystal Earrings
The standout piece for me is the Baron Pierced earrings, Miranda Kerr is sporting them in the Christmas campaign and I fell in love with them as soon as I opened the box. They have a slight blue hue and look even more incredible when they catch the light. They will be perfect for wearing on Christmas day with my new frock! They could be my favourite Swarovski piece of all time. I KNOW.

I also adore this simple but lovely tennis bracelet, as seen in the first photograph. It's a classic Swarovski piece - understated but the kind of bracelet you can wear with any outfit. This really is the perfect gift.

I've started to wear Swarovski on a daily basis as it helps add a bit of sparkle to my working day! I'm always wearing a slake leather bracelet or a stardust bracelet like this rawrsome black one (available in 8 colours) because it's just so easy to wear. I might invest in some more of them when it's my birthday in January! A girl can never have too many. ;)

Which of these jewellery pieces is your favourite? Have you spotted the Miranda Kerr Perfect Gift campaign?

Weekend #OOTD With Timberland!

When I think of Timberland I used to imagine the iconic nubuck boots my man has, J-Lo in her heeled Timb style Manolo's and checked shirts and waterproofs, certainly not beautiful leather accessories like this beaut Timberland Parkside Tote Bag! When Timberland got in touch and asked us if we wanted to choose something online as a gift, I initially thought YES, matching boots Bey and Jay style with Timmy, until I decided to explore the Accessories department online. Seriously guys, THE BAGS, OH THE BAGS! Soft and supple leather totes in bright yellow, chic navy blue and classic tan and greys. They're not cheap with prices starting at £140 but hey, you're on the Timberland online store here so let's face it, you weren't expecting fast fashion right, you're here for quality and tradition? The Parkside is £200 but I was considering investing in a good leather bag anyway and £200 would probably only buy me half of one of a similar size from the brands I was shortlisting, so it's all good up in this hood. To the outfit! . . .

Outfit: Jumper - Wildfox, Shirt - House Of Fraser, Jeans - Wildfox, Boots - Jeffrey Campbell, Bag - c/o Timberland, Necklace - Mi Moneda, Watch - Daniel Wellington.

It's the perfect size for what I was looking for, a shopping bag that I could carry my purse, phone and camera in, whilst at the same time popping in those small purchases that come in teeny carrier bags. The leather is unbelievably soft and touchable, I love the slightly tarnished look too. I think it looks a touch more casual than polished leather, especially in this gorgeous tan colour. It's also very lightweight considering the size, and inside you'll find a simple preppy striped lining and interior pockets, all wrapped up with a concealed zipper all the way across the opening for security.

I love the little logo to the lower edge of the bag, so discreet yet still noticeable to the trained eye ;) I've already had several friends say how much they love my new bag, quickly followed by a 'Oh, is it Timberland, I didn't even know they did women's bags?!' once they notice the stamp! I think we're so conditioned to associating brands with certain products that we close ourselves off to investigating what else they might do? We're sure as hell missing out though!

This bag matches my JC cat Lita's perfectly, purrrfect partners! I think these are now in their 3rd or 4th year with me, I can't remember to be honest but they're testimony to enduring style and even though the Lita is a tad out of favour now, it just shows that buying an 'It' style in a pattern that means a lot to you can make the pounds per wear go a hell of a lot further! Now I have this bag to set them off you'll be seeing as much of these babies in 2014/2015 as you did in 2011/2012! 

Happy weekend everyone, link me to what you're wearing!

J - I'm yelling TIMBERRRRRR!

Scotts Menswear: Christmas Gift Ideas for Stylish Men!

I spent last Sunday hanging out with friends, buying Christmas gifts and wrapping! I love wrapping gifts while listening to a bit of Bublé, it makes me feel and Christmassy and puts me in a great mood. Unlike Jade (who bought all of her pressies MONTHS ago), I still have a lot of presents left to buy. Funnily enough, I always struggle to gift the same people... the MEN in my life.

Buying gifts for men is tough work but there are a few options. Do you attempt to buy gadgets? Try to find a humourous gift? Chicken out and opt for a gift card? OR, my personal favourite, buy them something to wear? I think shopping for my bae is pretty easy, he has a great sense of style (Exhibit A) and after 10 years together, I've pretty much worked out his likes and dislikes. This year I'm giving him a mixture of fashionable and unusual gifts, including this really smart polo shirt by Aquascutum.

He won't touch anything with a visible logo, but this understated jersey long sleeved polo shirt by Aquascutum is right up his street. It's fantastic quality and looks as if it run true to size. He doesn't own anything else by them so I just know he'll love this classic, British brand... I'm convinced it's spot on! It is a little more expensive than something you'd get in a high street store, but I'm hoping he'll get a good few years wear out of it as I believe in quality over quantity!

Do you struggle to buy presents for men? What have you bought the men in your life for Christmas?

T - Totally nailed it.
