FESTIVE ROMAN OMBRE SEQUIN DRESS + WIN ONE!

It’s the 1st December! We all know what that means, it’s time to get festive! Our tree and decorations are going up tomorrow, but it means that it’s sequins and glitter galore now! The party season is upon us and even though I don’t like parties, I really enjoy dressing up in glitzy pieces. With that in mind, how perfect is this ROMAN Ombre All Over Sequin Dress? I can just imagine it being worn for so many Christmas parties at work and just on nights out with the girls. I decided to style my dress with my Jimmy Choo Romy Glitter Heels and my Lulu Guinness Lips Clutch. I thought the matching blue and purple tones would complement the dress perfectly, and they did. I also chose more of a Christmas tree background so it would feel even more festive! Regarding the dress though, I really like the length of it as it’s not too short or too long, the short sleeves are actually quite flattering, and the ombre effect of the sequins is truly beautiful! It’s also comfortable and comes in UK sizes 10 to 22, but now the best part is on its way below! Don’t forget to comment and let me know what you think of the outfit though! WIN A FREE ROMAN Ombre All Over Sequin Dress! And now the good part! You can WIN a FREE ROMAN Ombre All Over Sequin Dress too (also comes in silver and blue), so there’s two options ladies! We are doing this as a Facebook giveaway, so it’s really easy to enter! Now is the perfect time to…

Rockfish Samba Red Gloss Rain Boots Outfit + WIN A PAIR!

Rockfish Original Tall Gloss Samba Red Wellies Outfit How amazing are these rain boots? It’s literally no secret that I adore wellies. Living in England means I’m reaching for them on a weekly basis, if not daily sometimes! One pair that I never had though was bright red, and despite numerous people telling me I needed them, they still hadn’t made it to my collection, until now! These are the Rockfish Original Tall Gloss Samba Red Wellies and they’re stunning! I’ve owned a pair of Rockfish wellies before in the metallic fuchsia pink (see here), and I knew how comfortable they were, so when I needed to get a staple and classic like primary red, I just knew it was going to be these instead of Hunter. As much as I love Hunter, I find their prices are just a little too steep and the comfort isn’t even on par with Rockfish. These feel like walking on sponge – they’re so soft and snug, they’re actually a joy to wear and don’t feel cumbersome. As soon as these rain boots arrived, I knew I wanted to take them out for a spin, so on the weekend Adam and I went for a little country walk down to the stream. You might remember me splashing in this stream from before (see here) as it’s one of my favourite places to go. I decided to keep my outfit simple with some black skinny jeans and a striped jumper from Joules, as well as a matching red rain coat, also from Joules, so I was all uniform. There’s nothing more fun than matching…

WIN A FREE Katy Perry Mad Love Perfume

I am very excited to share with you a brand new giveaway! It’s been a little while since I did a contest here on Raindrops of Sapphire, so it’s long overdue, but it’s just in time for the holidays! So, what’s up for giveaway? I’ve teamed up with the Katy Perry team to give one lucky reader the Katy Perry Mad Love fragrance, which is a total Holiday 2016 must have! Designed to capture the sexy and playful essence of Katy’s unique personality, this new fragrance has 3 Pillars – Purr, Killer Queen and Mad Potion (Mad Love is an extension of the Mad Potion franchise). Katy has played the sexy, mischievous role of cupid, casting a love spell on everything her little arrows touch, even she can’t resist the power of her potion! Made with sexy, mischievous, irresistible, whimsical, flirty, and fun elements, its notes are: Top: Lady Apple Sorbet, Mara Strawberry, Pink Grapefruit Heart: Peony Petals, Sun-kissed Jasmine, Bleeding Heart flower Base: Sandalwood, Skin Musk, Coconut Wood The essence of the Bleeding Heart flower is said to purify and strengthen the Heart Chakra, bringing an open-hearted attitude, soothing emotions, and re-inviting the spirit of love into one’s body and soul. You will notice that Mad Love is addictive from the start, with its playfully sexy floriental fruity fragrance, captured inside the beautiful glass design bottle which is made from a classical round potion bottle that has been dipped in Cupid’s favorite color, light pink. Cupid’s arrow is displayed prominently on the sleek neck of the bottle, while the front of the bottle features an embossed heart-shaped seal inspired…
