Holiday Season Staples

As holiday season gears up, most of us getting stuck in a winter rut - so I've put together some Christmas season staples. 

The festive season involves a lot of party's and these chic and super comfy velvet slippers are perfect for rocking around the Christmas tree.

 Give your old Christmas jumper a break this season an wear something more fashionable like this cute March On jumper.

Your Holiday season wardrobe wouldn't be completed without a pop of red and this Aspinal of London clutch carries you perfectly from day to night. 

I hope you are all having a great day and let me know what your holiday season staples are! 

I'm wishing all my American readers (and everyone else of course!) a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels!

The other day we headed back to one of our favourite Japanese eateries, Kurobuta,  with it's relaxed, informal setting (previous review here). 

The Chelsea pop-up has become a permanent fixture since my last visit and they furthermore have opened another spot in Marble arch.

We started with the Jerusalem artichoke chopsticks with truffle ponzu dip. Both of us love this spring roll version and the dip is just amazing.

Next, baby shrimp tempura with spicy mayo and warm ponzu dipping sauce - it comes scattered with onions and chilli. I could eat this everyday all day.

The Wagyu Beef Sliders are served in brioche buns with crunchy onions, pickled cucumber and umami mayo - the meat melts in your mouth and the fried onions add the perfect crunch to it.

The tuna sashimi pizza with red onions and green chilli's is an absolute winner and perfect for rounding off this amazing meal.

Smythson Panama Notebook

smythson, panama notebook review
I am and always have been a huge fan of notebooks and since I've started blogging my cravings for beautiful stationary has reached new heights.

I always carry a notebook in my bag and go through a fair amount of them so when Smythson got in touch with me an asked if I'd like to try out their panama notebook - I said yes in a heart beat. 

This panama notebook / diary is your perfect everyday companion due to its featherweight pages and it can be squashed, folded and rolled without becoming misshapen.

There is a wide range of colours to choose from and you can add a personal touch by adding monograms to it - which makes it the perfect stocking filler.

Five Piece Wardrobe

Happy Wednesday everyone! How is your week going so far? If I had to pick five key pieces in my wardrobe it would consist of the following: a great wool coat, cotton jumper, leather pants, statement boots and a hat. 

I already own the pinstriped coat (Zara sale find) leather pants and jumper and I've recently added this blue hat to my wardrobe which I've been wearing all week as you can see on my Instagram.

In order to complete my five piece wardrobe I've added these Boden statement boots which will carry me from day to night.

 I came across the 'Five Piece French Wardrobe' experiment on one of my favourite blogs afterDRK (read more here) and I think it's a great concept.

Winter Whites

Good evening everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Recently, I spent quite some time talking about my autumn essentials and with the temperatures dropping it's time to focus a little more on some winter staples. 

When it comes to winter wardrobe, a great coat is high up on my must-have list! Aside from being cozy and warm I love how a great coat adds that little extra to your outfit. I've been on the look for a white coat for a while now and I love this slouchy Asos one.

Boho chic

Good evening Everyone! How was your Halloween weekend?

I just wanted to say a quick hello and share some snaps of my favourite pieces at the moment, starting with this cool Lipsy fake fur jacket. I've been on the look out for a faux fur jacket for several years now so I'm pretty excited I've finally found one which ticks all the boxes. 

Next item on the list is this burgundy Reiss trilby hat which adds some boho chic to every look and it is the perfect partner in crime for bad hair days. 

Last but certainly not least are the zip-up ankle boots from Russell and Bromley. They are really comfy and you can pair them up with pretty much anything. 

To finish up the boho chic look I've added my marcie bag and Asos ripped jeans which are perfect for an off-duty look.
