Rose tinted glasses

As a regular glasses wearer since the age of 11 - you have no idea how blind without glasses - I jumped at the chance to review a pair of glasses from Firmo.
I was a little bit nervous ordering online but it turned out my fears were unnecessary as I couldn't be happier with the ones i've chosen. They fit my face perfectly and are just as comfortable as my other pairs. I love the pop of colour the red arms add and it makes them a little more jazzier than normal black ones. I always think what's the point of wearing glasses if you don't try to make a little bit of a fashion statement? I loved the fact they came in a hard case too as i'm always chucking things in my bag so this keeps unwanted accidents from happening. I'm already thinking about added another pair from the site to my collection.
You too can have the chance to recieve your own pair of free glasses - you just have to pay for shipping! What a bargain eh? Even if you don't wear perscription glasses it's still possible for you to get a pair of plain lenses. One word of warning. There's such a huge brilliant selection on the site, you could be browsing for quite some time!

Phase Eight S/S 13 preview

After getting embarrassingly lost a few weeks ago I finally made it to the Phase Eight press day with around ten minutes to spare - yes I was one of those dreaded people who comes right at the end! I'm very glad I did finally make it! My favourite pieces were the beautiful floral blazer and paisley printed trousers. I can just imagine them being the perfect statement pieces for the warmer months that currently seem a distant memory. The detailing on the floral dress also secured a special place in my heart - it will be an amazing choice for a day at the races. The tweed cropped blazer will be a great cover up when it gets chilly in the evening. Hopefully i'll be at either Newmarket or Ascot races this year! I was very kindly gifted a pair of sunglasses that have already gone in my summer drawer ready to be worn when we get our *ahem* heatwave next June - fingers crossed. I had to wrestle my mum for them though!

Which piece sets your heart aflutter?

Christmas Motel Rocks style

I was luckily enough to be invited along to the Motel bloggers Christmas party and they know how to have a good time. The amazing venue tucked away in Shoreditch - I worked a stones throw away for 6 months and didn't even realise it was there - put on AMAZING cocktails which tasted exactly like apple pie. My all time favourite dessert.

As I arrived early I was excitably allowed to choose a dress to take home in the form of a gorgeous gold maxi dress. I can't wait to show it off during the festive season! Unfortunately I didn't get my hair done by Lee Stafford  but I took full advantage of having my make expertly done by MyFace and came away with fluttering eyelashes from Eyelure.

It was so lovely to catch up with blogger babes such as Hannah, Lily, Elodie, Michelle,  Aisling, Lauren, Kim and Joanna. I wanted to sneak the leather jacket above in my bag - amazing isn't it?! It's safe to say I was very excited to recieve my first Christmas present of the year - a Lee Stafford chopstick curling tong. Thanks so much Motel, I had a fantastic evening!
