4000 Hits on my blog – Thank you!!!

Wowzer! Have been informed my blog has had 4,000 hits…

really appreciate this! I know it may not sound like much but as it is a fairly new blog I am very grateful.

To celebrate I thought I would give you a Christmas gift list of the best things to buy any frugal fashionista this festive season! (feel free to buy me any of the below)

Number one: Purr by Katy Perry

In a cute pussycat bottle, Katy Perry’s debut fragrance Purr is a girly scent with top notes of peach nectar, forbidden apple and green bamboo. It is currently exclusively available at Selfridges but goes nationwide on the 20th November. Katy Perry is perfume obsessed and reportedly owns over 50 different bottles so let’s hope she has used this knowledge to make Purr a sell out scent.

Number two: Sparkly Shiny Sequiney Shoes!

As it is party season, any fashionista really can’t get through it without a pair of shoes that have the wow factor. I am a lover of sparkles and sequins so these shoes from Office are crazy yet cute and great for any xmas party. These shoes are now £58 (reduced from £88) so snap them up now online.

Number 3: The celebrity party dress

Cheapy high street store Peacocks + designer Pearl Lowe = Lots and lots of hot party frocks modelled by the gorge Daisy Lowe (and let’s face it, if Daisy was modelling a bin bag we would still go out and buy one)

Pearl Lowe’s range features snug winter coats and hoards of cute dresses.

My favourite is the pale pink party dress with embellished waistline and at £50 it is designer for less! Click here to buy!

Number 4: Pussybow blouse

Every celeb worth their salt is rocking a pussybow blouse.

Whether it is a tied loose or sharp around the collar a la Kourtney Kardashian, this look is sophisticated and smart – also, how haute are Kourtney’s Alexander McQueen shoes – Ferocious!

For a similar look, click on to ASOS for this £28 – team it with a leather pencil skirt and sky scraper heels. Click here to buy!

Or for a cheaper look try updating an existing white shirt with a length of black ribbon.

Number 5: Viva la Glam make-up from Mac

Mac make-up is a girl’s best friend so make sure a Viva La Glam lippie is on your chrimbo list.

Stars such as Dita Von Teese, Christina Aguilera and Fergie have been the face of Mac in the past and now Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper are working Viva La Glam colours.

My favourite lipsticks are the frosty pink Saint Germain and the hot pink Girl about Town.

Furry Creature Fashion

Winter again, time for scarfs and woollen hats.

Last year Katy Perry had a fashion love affair with a River Island bear hat that eventually sold out.

Fear not if you didn’t get your hat last year – River Island has introduced some new furry favourites to tie you over until spring.

So whether you want to keep your ears snug with a racoon or a bunny rabbit head down to River Island now and pick up one of these snug cuties. Prices from £12.99

I got mine last year and believe me I shall be working this one again throughout winter – Also, putting it over your face never seems to get boring!

Take a hike

As the seasons change so do our footwear choices.

The gladiator sandals are now hidden away waiting for Summer to hit once more and it is time to bust out the old Winter favourite – the Boot.

After months of the Biker boot being a fashion fave, a new unlikely boot style is now in vogue –  the hiking boot.

Before I lose you and you think I want you to take a trip down to Millets, I can reassure you this boot is damn fabulous and is already all over the high street.

With fierce heels and laced-up studs, these boots certainly won’t fare well on any fells but the shearling trim is a nod to the aviator trend without having to invest in a pricey flying jacket.
