Leaving on a jet plane.................

So with it being so cold, wet and windy outside I can't help but think with great excitment of us jetting off somewhere exotic and sunny for our honeymoon next year! Not actually thought of where we will go on honeymoon yet but we do know it will be somewhere special where we can relax, explore and enjoy the sunshine :-)

Anyway, I was looking on H&M today and after a few minutes I already have 2 gorgeous bikini sets, 2 kimonos and a beach towel in my basket to buy for my honeymoon!
Take a look at what I've fallen for:-

Kimono £19.99 H&M

Bikini set £9.99 for top & £7.99 for bottoms H&M

Kimono £19.99 H&M

Bikini set £9.99 Top, £7.99 Bottoms H&M

Beach Towel £6.99 H&M

The perfect beach hat is the Panama Fedora hat. This hat is £45 from Net-a-Porter - So classic, I love it!

Over the past few years I've had a few bikini sets from H&M and have been really pleased with them. This summer it was my H&M banana print bikini that I couldn't get enough of! 
The white bikini set is the classic honeymoon bikini set and the bright white and green print kimono looks stunning over it. I love animal prints and have a new Dolce & Gabbana leopard print bikini set which I can't wait to wear, I thought this snakeskin print set on H&M with matching kimono would be perfect too as prints like these will never date.

The panama hat is from Net-a-porter and at £45 it's good value. I love, love love hats and think a panama fedora hat for wearing on the beach with my bikini and kimono sets and oversized shades will look gorgeous. I now just need to figure out the size of hat I would need to order!
The best thing about getting a panama hat for your holiday to the sunshine is they are super light and you can roll them up so they don't take up alot of space when packing. 

Even although my honeymoon won't be until November 2012, i'm trying to get organized and get bits and bobs when I see them so it's less stressful nearer the time. I'm a nightmare for also seeing something nice, not ordering it then a while later when I go to order it, there's none left so now if I see something I want I'll get it before it's gone!

Bring on the sunshine!

The Hunter Chatel snow boot

These patent-trimmed Chatel snow boots by Hunter are just-in and I love them! I see "Chanel" and not "Chatel" when I look at these!
At first I was drawn to the white pair, simple, stylish and very festive looking for this time of year however thinking in the long-term the black pair is more practical for me. 

These boot are available now from and will set you back a cool £75. The boots feature snow-proof cuffs, a gripped rubber sole, and a lace-up front to ensure the perfect fit. Being both sensible and stylish, these insulated boots are the perfect choice to see you through the cold winter months. 

My only concern with these boots is the sizing. They are available in either medium or large with the medium being sized for a UK size 3 - 5 and the Large being sized for a UK size 6 - 8. I'm normally a UK 5 and they do state they run true to size so i'm thinking the medium should be okay but worry they may be a little tight?

I do think these boots will sell out fast so if you want a pair, get them quick!

My new arm candy

It makes the perfect over-sized clutch!

My fluro yellow satchel from The Cambridge Satchel Co has now arrived and I just love it.
It's hard to see the true beauty of this bag from my pictures but trust me, it's just perfect. This bag will add a good pop of colour to my winter wardrobe and will be my staple accessory over the summertime.
The satchels are all handmade and you can to make them more special, you can get your initials embossed on it too.
My bag took around 30 days to arrive, but when you see the quality of it, it's worth the wait!
The satchels are available in various different sizes and colours, the fluro collection stood out most for me and I was torn between the fluro pink and yellow but it was the yellow that won me over in the end.

Christmas Shopping in London

I'm just back from a fun trip to London with my family. London was cold, well, not as cold as the Scottish weather :-), but I was prepared and well wrapped up in my gorgeous new Zara coat, my new boots and my cosy green pashmina scarf (I got the Pashmina scarf on holiday in Bulgaria in June for £10 and I love it so much, I wish I had got more of them)!

I never really took alot of pictures on my trip but did take a few snaps of the stunning winter wonderland window display's of the famous Selfridges & Co store:-

Liberty of London Store

I love looking at all the shop window displays when they are dressed for christmas time - just gorgeous!

As you can see from the bags, I did not bad with my shopping purchases in London too! I always see different things in the stores in London that I see here in Glasgow so it's always nice to get some unique things when you see them!

Leather Look Leggings

These leather look leggings I got from Zara last week are amazing.

These are brilliant value at only £25.99! They are pull-on stretch leggings that feature an inside ankle zip. Look gorgeous this winter with either a cute, glitzy top or a cosy over-sized chunky knit jumper and some heels.
If you love these then get them quick, in the past week they have sold out online twice!!

These Zara leggings are near identical to these leather leggings from Helmut Lang, only difference is the Helmut Lang leggings are real leather and they will set you back a cool £600!!
