The Christmas Covet list has begun

Walking round Covent Garden with it's giant Christmas bauble decorations this weekend got me into the Christmas spirit earlier than I was intending.

I also think it was my little visit to the Kate Spade boutique on Henrietta Street.  I love visiting Kate Spade shops when I am in New York and the treat of visiting the store in Covent Garden made me feel like I was shopping in the Big Apple! 

The thing I love about Kate Spade is the accessories and the nic-nacs so here are my top pic of Christmas covetables..

As you all know I love a good purse and it is my belief that they should be colourful things of beauty and this little gem fits the bill, not to mention the fact it comes in 4 fab colours (it is almost as lovely as my Mulberry): 

Next on the covet list are these 2 fab rings, I am obsessed with rings and have hundreds that cater to my daily fashion whim's.  The first reminds me of a gorgeous gold ring that I used to own and subsequently I think it would be perfect to add to my collection for an everyday gold ring!

The second ring is this fabulous emerald coloured cocktail ring, not only is the ring a gorgeous colour but I adore the packaging and think it would make a great little gift for my cocktail loving friends. (Miss sugarplumslipper there is sadly no cosmopolitan but they do have a Manhattan).
Another gift that I thought was really lovely were the collection of necklaces with words on them ranging from, Cheers, I do to Mrs.  But I really loved this Smile option.

Last but by no means least I adore this multi coloured bib necklace, it would glam up a boring LBD and would look fab under a classic white shirt and as such will be on my list to Santa!

All of the items above can be bought online but I would highly recommend a visit to the store in person!

Fantastic Furs

As the weather has turned cold i have been looking at there ever present Faux Fur trend to find that perfect snugly coat option and I have finally found the perfect coat from Miss Selfridge.  It was £89 and since trying it a few weeks ago none have quite felt as cosy as this one!

If you want something shorter and a little retro I would highly recommend this Faux fur from Ted Baker, it is £199  and will work really well through the party season!

Or try this Coast one for a more glam look, it is £250 and a classic shape and will stand the test of time.  Not to mention looking fab whilst walking down Bond Street under the Christmas lights with a Tiffany's bag in hand!

Ragdale Hall spa break

Today I head off for 3 nights of relaxation at the gorgeous Ragdale Hall health Spa in Leicestershire so I will not be blogging for the rest of this week, but I will be filling you in on the top treatments on my return.

But while I am away imagine me relaxing in this glorious setting with a glass of Champagne in hand and the weight of the world lifted off my shoulders!

The power of the SEQUIN..

Never underestimate the power of a sequin...
It can be dressed up or down and instantly makes you feel sexy!

My top sequin high street looks:

Mint Velvet look: Pop on some ankle length leggings and some killer shoes and Rock this sequin dress with style:
The dress is £199.00 from Mint Velvet (available in House of Fraser)

Then Layer this fab leather jacket £225.00 from the same label to give the sequins edge.

The Day look: Team these 2 tops with skinny jeans or leather trousers and some shoe boots

The top is Reiss £79.00 but there are similar in Topshop and Oasis for less.
 Then add this green Ted Baker cardigan £99.00 which can be worn 3 ways (check back next week for all the different ways)
Last but not least try something different with this Michael Kors sequin skirt £150.00 but you can buy similar from H&M for £19.99.  

To finish the look opt for a coloured knit like this one from Zara £19.99 and a skinny belt to cinch in your waist.
