Happy Halloween!

I hope you're all having a wonderful Halloween. It's one of my favourite nights of the year - I love anything magical, hence my obsession with Harry Potter. It's involved a log fire, orange roses, lots of candles, sweets and chocolate which would make Willy Wonker jealous, plus some cute trick or treaters thrown in for good measure.

Wanting in on the chocolate action...

I'm not sure if anything will beat my gold pumpkin from last year.

Tick Tock.

If there's one thing I'm desperate for it's a watch. I rely far too much on my iphone for the time and I'm often stuck if the battery has died. When I was younger I had a Forever Friends watch which I treasured (Do you remember the Forever Friends bears - so cute!). I've decided to put one on my Christmas list - I've got small wrists so I need one which is fairly slim and has a small face. I've found some beautiful Calvin Klein watches from Watch Warehouse. I've narrowed it down to  my favourites.

Winter shoe favourites

It's that time of year again when I'm starting to look for shoes for my winter wardrobe. Most of my winter shoes tend to be black because they go well with black tights (who are my best friends during the cold months). So the challenge has been on to find some chic black shoes which aren't boring! 

I think I've found some beauties!

Paris Fashion Week - Balmain Spring/Summer 2014

My overall favourite collection at Paris Fashion Week was Balmain's Spring/Summer 2014 collection. I loved the pastel colours, sumptuous fabrics and exquisite embroidery.
