The End of a Magical Year

2012 has been a magical year to be living in London.  This time last year I was preparing a dinner party for my friends ready to bring in the New Year that held lots of Promise.  As the clock struck 12 and we were all gathered down the road on London's Southbank for the fireworks, none of us really new how much of an exciting year we were about to have!

As a Londoner, The Royal Wedding had been one of the highlights of 2011 so the Queen's Jubilee did not disappoint with an entire weekend of Celebrations, street parties and concerts!

Then along came the OLYMPICS and the PARALYMPICS..  which were possibly the most amazing thing to have happened in London (during my 11 years living here).  London became the most friendly city to live in and as a Nation we finally became proud of our Team.  Gone were the negative and disparaging headlines in favour of patriotic stories of our fantastic Athlete's, helpers and supporters!

2012 was also the year that countless friends turned 30,  5 of them got married, 2 decided to move abroad and 6 got engaged, including ME and my parents celebrated 40 years of Marriage, so this year will go down in my history as being the year I consumed the most amount of Champagne EVER!

But in my personal life 2012 has been like a whirlwind of adventure, my boyfriend Rich made me a very happy lady when he proposed to me at the SAVOY on the 27th of April, I was literally bouncing off the walls with excitement and we have been having so much fun planning our wedding which will be next year. 

But this year has also been an amazing year for my business and this little blog..  I have worked with some amazing people on amazing projects this year..  Styling book covers, fashion shows, red carpet appearances, adverts, 2 channel 4 programme's, 2 pilot TV shows, 3 magazine features for my celeb clients to name a few.  I have also taken on lots of new style clients, featured in a national magazine, started my own You Tube channel and Facebook page and the new website launches in a week!

All in all 2012 has been an amazing year and the great thing is that I know that 2013 is going to be just as exciting with the launch of the new website and the new projects I am starting for work.  The trips abroad I am taking for friends wedding's and to visit those friends who have relocated.  I also have the mother of all Hen Do's to look forward to, my sister is organising it for me and I am excited and terrified about it as it is all a SURPRISE...  

But the most exciting part of 2013 is going to be the 8th of June when I get to wear that big dress and stand in the church with my gorgeous family and beautiful bridesmaids and Marry my best friend and become MRS WALSH...

Happy New Year 
may 2013 be as amazing as 2012..

Great things can happen when you put your mind to it!

Merry Christmas..

It has been a busy few months leading up to Christmas for CW-Style so I have to apologise for the lack of posts and for not giving my Christmas list special as I usually do..  So here is a little gift guide for anyone who is still struggling....

Guys love gadget's and although I would rather be buying the man folk lots of fabulous Christmas print cardigans, tweed blazers and pastel chino's instead I am sticking to the Gadget accessories all from one destination TED BAKER!

First is a digital book cover in this fab tweed £39.

Second favourite is again Tweed (it is Christmas after all) This is a laptop case which will make any old laptop look super stylish, £69.

Or if your man likes receiving clothes for Christmas why not get him a wool mix blazer, this one is £275 and looks great with jeans and a shirt or T shirt!

For us Gals we like frivolity and beautiful objects!  So I am starting with jewellery, and I am all about a statement necklace not only on myself but on my clients too!  This Hoss Intropia bib necklace can make any LBD go from Blah to Pow, Its £117 but worth every penny!

Next on the list is Lingerie, we love getting it and you guys hate buying it, so my top tip is.....  Look at the size and style of the bra's she usually wears before going shopping, better still steal one of her bra's an take it with you!  For selection you can't beat Selfridges or a large department store, they will have everyday like this Fantasie set called Savannah £54,  to ooh la la sets from the likes of Mimi Holiday £145.

Have fun shopping, and more importantly..... MERRY CHRISTMAS. x
