DECEMBER ๐Ÿ’ซ

Good Evening lovelies,

I am sitting writing this with a cup of tea, amongst all my Christmas decorations feeling incredibly festive. I am planning to start wrapping all my gifts tonight, which I know is a sore subject for some but personally, its my favourite bit. Only because I actually remember what I have bought for people and feel incredibly proud of myself at what a good job I’ve done mwhaha ๐Ÿ˜‚. Any occasion, I’m ready to shop for it.

So T’is the season honeys, Christmas parties, friendly gatherings, Christmas eve drinks (my favourite evening of all) and the biggie, Christmas day. Most of us get out of our pyjamas and into our glad rags, hopefully you have all taken my advice and have invested in some sequins this year, as you can see we have some more this week ๐Ÿ˜‚. Christmas definitely is the season to dress UP and not down. I know some of you may not even change out of Pyjamas this year, which hey, if that’s how your family do it, fantastic, every one gets new pyjamas for Christmas any way, so technically you still have a new outfit on..

I went to Liverpool for one of my lovely friends Hen do last weekend, which was amazing, but my god, those liverpudlian girls know how to dress. We can all take some tips from them, I couldn’t belive the ideas and the quirkiness of it all. Fabulous. So yes, taking a leaf out of their book, we all need to get glammed up this next coming week whether it be just slaying in your new pyjamas from your Nan ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป or getting those sequins out for all our lovely Christmas antics.

I have definitely been keeping my eye out for you all while trawling online shopping and also out and about in the Liverpool stores. So my Edit for you all this week will definitely help with your social outings and will be your ‘CHRISTMAS PARTY ๐Ÿ‘ฏ’ Edit.

This is my only blog post over Christmas and I will be back with you from the 3rd of January all fresh into 2018. So, I am wishing you all a lovely Christmas and NY with your families, loved ones and friends, enjoy all of its magic and celebration.

Lots of love,

GT xo

MIAMI NIGHTS ๐Ÿ’ฃ

MIAMI

I cannot believe that I have already been AND gone. South beach, Miami was amazing. If you ever get the chance to go I would definitely take it, one ticked off my bucket list.

I was there at the time of Art Basel, which is a super cool and trendy time to go to Miami as all the celebs flood in to visit the Art show. I was in the midst of some of my current girl crushes, the likes of Olivia Culpo, Steph Shep and Sofia Richie. Unfortunately no celeb spotting to be told.. But I did keep up with their shenanigans on Insta.

So we stayed right on South Beach in the W Hotel which is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed, I am photographed in our room which was just life. Never wanted to leave it. We ate in some of the best places in Miami including Prime 112 which was a huge food goal for me, courtesy of the food god himself, Mr Jonathan Cheban, I love seeing where he eats!

So yes, a busy few weeks for me as we went out every single night which means a total of like 15 evening outfits. Crazy, I think I wore every single thing I packed. I am pictured here on the night of Prime 112 actually, we went to a neighbouring hotel for some drinks before hand which was called the Setai, which again was just one of the most beautifully designed places I’ve been.

I chose to wear my PLT black ruffle dress on this night, super feminine and complimentary on the waist ON SALE FOR ยฃ23 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ. A great buy, as we all recycle our LBDs. I styled it with my most colourful pair of shoes, Christian Louboutin wedges, to add some colour and detail to the outfit. A long with my YSL green glitter bag, which I was told by a lovely American sales lady “Oh my god, isn’t your YSL just super festive?!” I love their enthusiasm.

So this week, my edit calls for some summer sun outfits, if some of us are lucky enough to be jetting off after the Christmas period ๐Ÿ˜

BUY OR BYE ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Ok guys, welcome to your second instalment of BUY OR BYE ๐Ÿ˜ I hope youโ€™re enjoying the feature so far and itโ€™s giving you lots of ideas ๐Ÿ’ก 

Our celeb interest this week is.. Kourtney Kardashian

This woman just gives me LIFE. I love her look, so effortlessly casual but super sexy at the same time. I love the designer that she is wearing, Alice McCall. As soon as I saw Kourtney wearing it, I was sold. She is a worthy winner of the BUY OR BYE feature, Iโ€™m definitely โ€˜Buyingโ€™ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

I love these vintage looking jeans and especially that cheeky little rip at the back!

So letโ€™s see what we can get our hands on and where, inspired by the beautiful Kourtney K;

GLITZY MONOCHROME ๐Ÿ’Ž

Wednesday is upon us once again guys, I hope you all have had a wonderful week!

Feeling a little calmer than last week, I am on holiday mode and winding down from my most stressful November in work so far. Hope you are all getting ready for the run up to Christmas, it really is a wonderful time a year ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ.

I had my M&S luxury advent calendar this week, if anyone has had one you’ll know the excitement I’m feeling to open up a cosmetic goodie each day.

So yes, A LOT calmer this week and my outfit is reflecting my mood. We have gone from every colour under the sun in last weeks ‘COLOUR CLASH’ blog to a bit of good old fashion monochrome, plus my fave Revolve X Chrissy jacket debuted in the Chrissy X Revolve ๐Ÿ–ค post.

I love this shirt dress, it is from H&M and is the best if you’re stuck for something to wear. It runs a little big so no need to go a size up. There is nothing smarter than a white shirt at times, its clean cut and fresh. I have paired this outfit with my favourite Balenciaga boots, they come alive in the winter and are super Festive with their black velvet and patent toes.

I added my ‘Self Same’ crystal choker to make the look more feminine and formal and again it makes me feel christmassy as its so glitzy. Definitely worth checking them out for accessories that really finish your look.

So I think this calls for a festive ‘SHINY’ Edit from me this week. I am totally drowning in sequins and sparkles at the moment, I will have to do a video for you all on my Instagram page soon just to show you how deep I am into it all, I definitely have a problem. But its Christmas so if you can’t go mad on sequins now, when can you..
