Wow, week 5 already! I can’t believe how quick this project is going, scarily its only two weeks until the big day itself! I hope you have been enjoying my posts in this project, they are all linked on the Projects and Groups page at the top of my blog, go and check them out! You’ll also see the links to other things I’m involved with. ☺️

So this week is Christmas Accessories. Β When I first started to think about this post, I was planning on getting out my favourite festive jewellery, then I had a thought – other things are accessorised over the festive period, so why not write about them. Β So here it is, my favourite Christmas (Tree) Accessories! Continue reading “The Winter Project | Christmas Accessories”

OOTD #1

This is my first outfit of the day! Yay for me! I have wanted to do a few of these but I’m rarely at home when someone can take my picture, so I’ve had to improvise with this and find ways to take my own picture without a timer camera!

The outfit is very much high street, and some/most are items that feature in my haul post from earlier this week. I don’t get chance to do many of these, especially as I spend most of my time in a uniform for work (nothing new about black trousers and a white T-shirt!), but I bought a few things at the weekend and I really wanted to try them out and here is my first attempt! I’ve taken a leaf out of Barbara’s (from The Persian Babe) book and gone for some slightly larger sizes in some items so that I’ve got some oversized jumpers to snuggle in over the winter!

I can’t believe its week 3 already! Time is going so quickly!

This week is scent and I really hope you guys enjoy this post as this is going to be my favourite one of the series!

As I’m sure you can tell from the image above, I am quite a high end fragrance lover! I feel that like most things, you get what you pay for in terms of scent. The longevity on the skin, the quality of the ingredients and the overall finish of the scent. I like to wear scents that reflect the mood I may be in, but also the occasion and time of year.
