Style Crush

Brooke Testoni
The Australian fashion connoisseur certainly knows how to put an outfit together.  
Her Pinterest, Instagram and website are always my first port of call when I'm in need of a bit of style inspo and I think you'll understand why...

Gifts for him...


Trilby, £140 APC
Watch, £35 Casio at Bank
Hipflask & Keyring, £12 ASOS
Book, £24.99 ASOS
Hat, £12 River Island
Beard Book, £9.99 ASOS
iPhone Case, £8 Jack & Jones  
T-Shirt, £67 Alexander Wang
Spicebomb, £65 Very

We have just 6 days left before it's the big day, and if you're anything like me you'll be panicking that you still have more than a few presents to buy.
So...I thought I'd offer a helping hand by doing a quick gift guide for any brothers, cousins or boyfriends. If the thought of heading to the shops at the weekend is giving you a sense of dread then you can shop all of the above from the comfort of your sofa. ASOS are even letting you order up to 23rd December for Christmas delivery so it's time to get shopping.

Belfast









The past few weeks have been what I can only describe as manic. Along with trips to Belfast, London and Poland, it's the busiest time of year for those working in advertising which is why my blogging appears to of slipped off the radar.

So, as I vow to post more regularly I thought I would share some snaps of my recent weekend in Northern Ireland. 
My housemates and I flew out on the Friday night and came back on the Sunday, so it was definitely a quick trip but was 100% worth it.

We spent the Saturday exploring Belfast on a peddle-powered bar (?!) before heading to the coast for some Sunday lunch and a walk along the beach.

It was my first visit but definitely won't be my last...

The season of the great indoors...

As the weather's been getting colder my desire to spend a night in on the sofa has been slowly increasing. 
A few months ago the thought of staying in on a Friday night seemed outrageous, after a week of hard work why would you not want to go out for a G&T and a good natter with your friends?
However, my attitude in the past couple of months has done a U-turn.

Not only do I blame the weather, but I also blame the TV. 
So many of my favourite series' have started again that I'm finding it hard to keep up. From X-Factor, to Homeland, to Made in Chelsea, I have become a glorified TV addict and I can't think of anything better than a night on the sofa with some good food and good company.

Maybe it's a sign I'm getting older but I'm hoping I'll snap out of it by the time the Christmas parties come around...

LBD

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to receive an invite to the launch of Little Black Dress' debut collection.
So, after work I headed over to Manchester House for an evening of cocktails, canap├ęs and, most importantly, amazing clothes.
Made up of 18 dresses, each inspired by a style icon, the LBDs are the perfect wardrobe addition for Christmas parties, nights out and special occasions.
Armed with a flute of champagne (the perfect accessory for any LBD), I spent the evening trying to resist taking one of the dresses home as models circled the room in various pieces from the collection.
 I've since decided that I'm inevitably going to have to buy one, and I've got my eye on the Alexa...
