New Years fasholutions

since I received my first ever crisp note as pocket money I have been a shopaholic and a fashion victim. If its affordable and I love it I tend to want it in as many colours or variations as possible. For example, I own around 15 collared shirts, 3 of which are black (but they have different collars) My constant shopping over the years and desire to have all the latest must have items has resulted in a bit of a problem. As you can see below this problem is a rather overcrowded wardrobe

Every piece fights for space in the tightly packed cupboard and it often takes a while to find something particular. I even lost a skirt once and eventually found it held in place at the very back of my wardrobe. If Narnia lay behind it there would be no chance of reaching it through the wall of clothes. Therefore, my New Years resolution is to stop buying so much and try to work with what I already have. This will prove to be difficult once the new trends hit the shops so I will add some key pieces to update my collection but won't go as mad as usual. (Here's hoping) As my bf would say, this is very,iChat a first world problem. Does anyone else have the same issue?

Tis the season...

I can't believe there are only two days to go until Christmas. I'm so excited as it's my favourite time of year. No work, spending time with family, presents, eating and drinking; what's not to love?

I went to Canary Wharf today to do some last minute shopping with the bf and thought I'd give my Primark dress with embellished collar an outing

My jacket was a New Look sale bargain a few years ago. I also thought I'd take a picture of the buildings and lights as they look so pretty at Christmas. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and enjoy the break

Busy Bee

Life has been pretty manic lately and as a result my poor blog has been neglected, so it's about time I wrote a new post and updated you on what I've been up to and more importantly, what I've been wearing!

I recently started a new job at work which involves more responsibility, more brainpower and means I often can't leave the office at 5 like I did in my old job so my finishing times vary depending on how busy I am. 

Last weekend was crazy but fun. The lovely Julie and Safira organised a Christmas Blogger meet up at the Crown and Sceptre in Kensington. It was lovely to see some of my favourite bloggers and meet some new ones too. I also very much enjoyed my steak and chips and would go back there for the food alone!

L-R Safira, Me, Joanna, Julie and Sophie. My black shirt with Crystal collar was £25 from New Look and my green jeans are also from New Look (£17) There's nothing like a bit of Christmas sparkle

I also had a couple of nights out to celebrate friends birthdays and here are my outfits of choice...

Apologies for the washing in the background, cropping isn't going too well with my new camera! This outfit was for Friday night drinks in Be@1 in Shoreditch. The dress is from River Island but the shoulders didn't fit me very well so I had to throw a Primark blazer over it. I completed the look with my trusty Primark studded flats

On Saturday I went to Oliver's in Hornchurch and wore a red peplum dress which was around £13 from Ebay with a necklace from New Look

Thankfully, this weekend has been quieter and today I can have some much needed rest!
