Getting My Fairytale Boot Fit With Ted & Muffy

Getting the perfect fitting boots at the Ted & Muffy Bath Blogger Event Last month I was invited to the Ted & Muffy Blogger Event here in Bath and I was super excited. Ted & Muffy used to be called DUO and I’m sure that you will know from my past blog posts that it was one of my favourite brands. Due to me having a larger size foot (UK 6 or 7) and very small calves, I can’t fit standard boots from the usual shops as the calf size is always too big and I look more like a pirate than someone who is into fashion. As Ted & Muffy do different foot sizes and calf widths from size 30cm to 50cm (mine coming in at 33-34cm), it’s the perfect option for me! With this in mind, I’m always looking forward to seeing the new boots that they have coming online. I attended the blogger event with Adam so he could see what it was like and help take my photos of course, and the boots that I had in mind were the Nightingale in brown (which you can see just below) and the patent cherry lace up flat shoes. I tried on both and after realising that the shoes weren’t really for me, despite how gorgeous they were, I decided upon the Nightingale as my pair to keep. I was then introduced by one of the lovely fitters to the Ismene burgundy leather boots as she knew I loved burgundy, and this put a huge decision in my mind about what I would choose. I decided eventually to…

#DUOBOOTTRIBE Bath Boutique Blogger Event

So on Thursday last week, I was invited to the DUO Boutique in Bath (which I am very fond of) for a unique blogger experience event, entitled #DUOBOOTTRIBE, to celebrate their new Autumn Winter collection and find out more about their boot tribes. I was there with about 13 other fashion bloggers, some very familiar faces like Tara from The Style Rawr, Gina from Bristol and Megan from Briar Rose. All of which I know very well from other events, but I was lucky to make a new friend as well, the lovely and adorable Michelle from Eclectic Threads. It was a fantastic event and I actually really enjoyed it! A lot of the times I don’t like parties or crowded situations, but this one was very low key, relaxed and enjoyable! It started out with a talk about the different Boot Tribes that DUO have: ankle boots, calf boots and over the knee boots. The aim of the evening was to find out about the differences and of course, search for your perfect boot around the store. The best thing about DUO for me is the calf sizes. I have bigger feet (UK 6 or 7) and very tiny calves, so finding boots to fit my calves and foot size is impossible, they are always too big, but with DUO, they come in various widths so there’s a perfect size for me. This is why I own two other pairs from them! I had looked online prior to the event to choose the boots I loved and the ones I ended up going for are these gorgeous Dita grey…

Amazing Black Friday Deals & Sales – UK & US!

I haven’t done this before as Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday has always been an American thing, but over time, the deals and sales have been creeping up here in the UK more and more and this year there are going to be loads! I thought I would put together a huge Black Friday deals post for both my American and UK readers! I have listed as many deals as I could find, most of them fashion related, but others are gift/toy/electronic related too. These are deals that are valid in the UK as well as in the US! They end really quickly and of course items sell out in a flash, so you need to be quick! Just click the names of the shops to go to their site and start saving money! You might want to right click the links and open them in new tabs so you don’t lose this page. These are all in alphabetical order, so make sure you don’t miss any! Happy shopping! Thanksgiving, Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals of 2013: All Saints – I have news that they will be having 25% off in store and on selected merchandise online. Don’t miss this one as All Saints rarely have good discounts! Amazon – Amazon are having deals every single day, starting already! They have a new deal every 15 minutes and you can keep track of them by scrolling through the home page. They do run out quickly though so you need to be fast! Apple – Apple will be holding a major Black Friday Sale starting the morning of Friday!…

At The Mimi Noor Boutique Birthday Party

Back in November, I attended the Mimi Noor boutique 2nd birthday party. As some of you know, I don’t drink and I am not really a huge fan of parties in general as I’m not a ‘loads of people at once’ kind of person, so I sort of kept to the corner with my boyfriend and my mum who was also invited as she’s friends with Mimi too, with my cool water bottle ha ha. Mimi’s boutique is really beautiful though. It’s small and has a pretty layout, but the best thing is the wall with shelves of jeans and a ladder. It actually feels so homely to be surrounded by so much denim at once. You know my background with denim and how obsessed I am with it, so being surrounded by the brands I love and the new styles makes me feel comfortable, which is great. I wasn’t sure if I should admit that I’m not really a party person. I mean, I visit so many blogs daily, and loads of the fashion bloggers love the parties and they even host some of them, so I don’t really fit into the usual category of fashion bloggers. However, I’m not afraid to be different at all. I am who I am and I’m very comfortable with that, so I don’t ever feel peer pressure or anything to do something I’m not ok with. I guess this might be why you don’t see many party or night time event posts on my blog. I get invited to them, like the Luisaviaroma Firenze 4 Eva fashion blogger events in Italy and…

Cabot Circus Fashion Weekender Show & Outfit

(Boots – Exact, Jumper – Similar, Jacket – Exact, Bag – Similar, Necklace – Similar) I can’t believe I missed these photos! I have had them on my laptop since April and I completely forgot about them. I was originally waiting for some professional shots to go with it, but I don’t think I got them. So I will post this now! I attended another fashion show back in April called the Cabot Circus Fashion Weekender and this is my outfit that I wore, combined with the show photos. It was a lot smaller than the other fashion show I attended, but it was still cute to watch! I was wearing J Brand red skinny jeans, a cream jumper/sweater, black PU leather sleeveless jacket, cross body bag, rainbow ring and cross necklace all from Topshop and my Sam Edelman Studded Pax boots. I know I am going to end up wearing outfits like this again soon as the warmer weather wont last much longer. I’m sad about that, I still have so many cute pieces I want to wear! I’m actually attending another Bristol Fashion Week show in September which I can’t wait for too! How are you all?

Topshop, Miss Selfridge & Topman Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day

This post has been a bit of a long time coming and I apologise for that. I have just been so busy with other posts, I didn’t have time to put it together. But here are the images from the Topshop, Miss Selfridge and Topman Autumn/Winter 2012 press day which I attended in London last month. Everything was shown together as it was actually at the Arcadia press event and I definitely saw some cute pieces that I can’t wait for! Especially from Topshop! I have included the images in this post and the text underneath them. I was only allowed to post 5 images from each brand, so unfortunately there are not that many to see, but I did pick my favourite ones of course! (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)

Boux Avenue Lingerie Boutique Launch With Theo Paphitis

On Thursday last week (24th May 2012), I attended the pre Boux Avenue lingerie boutique launch for press. Theo Paphitis (who you probably know as one of the dragons on Dragons Den) is the founder and owner of the brand and he has been opening new stores all across England. You can see him in the photo above with me and he’s definitely a really nice man, very kind and happy. Boux Avenue is a new high street lingerie store with a great concept, they start from 30A and go all the way up to 40H, so if you have bigger boobs and struggle to find anything over a D, then this might be the place for you! They have really cute designs and styles as you can see and they also focus on fit. You can get measured properly and know that the bras are comfortable and fitting you really well. The overall atmosphere of the boutique is really nice. It’s decorated in black and white so the focus is on the product only, and since their pieces are brightly coloured and bold, it really makes the store pretty. They don’t just do lingerie either, they also have other little things like key rings, purses, hand creams, mirrors etc, just little accessories that you might want or need. The changing rooms are wonderful too, they have 3 different light settings so you can see how you look in different lighting. The decor is also very fancy as you can see from my pictures! I had a great time and I’m thankful to his PR team for inviting me to…

Coach & Nicholas Kirkwood – Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day

Finally here are the photos from the new Coach Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day and the Nicholas Kirkwood Autumn/Winter 2012 Press Day. I saw both of these collections on different days during my London trips last month and I loved them! I’ve never owned anything from Coach, but I have always loved the fact that they are not afraid to use bright colours and make their accessories fun! I also adore Nicholas Kirkwood, the shoes are generally always amazing and unique, but again I haven’t owned anything from them. I have included the writing about the collections under the sets of photos for each brand within this post. So what do you think of the new Autumn/Winter 2012 collections from Coach and Nicholas Kirkwood? (Follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin and Facebook)
