Makeup is always a good gift idea and I love my Orly nail polishes. I'm normally not a glitter nail polish kinda girl but I do love to paint my nails with these sparkly numbers during the festive season (here and here).

After makeup, body pampering products are always high on my wish list and Avon does offer some amazing products. I really love their Planet Spa body cream.  
Last but certainly not least, a diary makes always a beautiful present and I really love this one from Aspinal of London. Add a personal touch to it with their monogramming service.

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
I just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of my new favorite coat. Aside from the fact that I love a good jacket in general, this one just happens to be the perfect cut and it's camel coloured (what more can you ask for, right?).

 Next to my new coat I'd like to introduce you to my new, sparkly friendship bracelet from Caroline Creba, which adds this little special to any outfit and makes for the perfect Christmas gift.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I'm the one who always leaves it at the last minute but I'm trying to be better this year.

Window Pane Print

If you follow me on Instagram you might know already that I've met up with the lovely girls from Karen Millen at their flagship store in Knightsbridge and made full use of their personal shopper knowledge.

I'm still very much into window pane prints so it was no surprise that this wrap skirt caught my attention right away.

I've paired the skirt with my trusty over the knee boots and a chunky knit. 

I always had a soft spot for Karen Millen and their beautiful occasion wear and when visiting their flagship store I fell in love with their amazing leather jackets and I know what I'm going to ask for Christmas.

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.

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.

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.

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.
