Blog i'm loving

I haven't done a post in this series for a little while now so it was time to get back posting the blogs i'm currently addicted too. You can view all of my other reccomendations by clicking the 'Blog i'm loving' image further down on the right hand side.

I have been reading this blog since the summer and read most of her previous posts too. Angelica Blick, is a Swedish blogger and I can't get enough of her wardrobe, hair, and lipstick. Mainly high street and vintage clothes - no designer items out of my price range!

Currently my number one hair inspiration but more to come of that soon!

Check out her blog if you haven't already.

Sheer, leather and suede

I hope you all had great weekends. Mine started on Thursday night when I was invited to the launch of the new Spiceal Street at the Bullring Birmingham. The party was held in Browns restaurant and bar.

I took my friend Anna along and we had great fun trying the many drinks on offer and delicious canapes. The restaurant is very stylish, nicely laid out over two floors with an outdoor terrace on each level.

We will definitely be heading back at somepoint to try out the menu!

I wore the leather-esque trousers for the first time and paired with my cream blouse and suede ankle boots and livened up the outfit with red lips and wine clutch.

New in

A couple of 'New in' items this week.

The leather (faux) trousers are so much more flattering than I thought they'd be, I'm hoping they get a lot of wear over the winter. The clutch was my purchase using the KG ELLE gift card I mentioned here. I decided on bright fushia instead of the muted grey or blue! Full marks to KG delivery too - ordered in the afternoon and delivered the following morning.

Kurt Geiger ELLE discount

If you haven't spotted it already there is a great £20 discount card on the lastest edition of ELLE UK for Kurt Geiger.


I've been browsing the site and picked out these favourites of mine. Most suprisingly I didn't go for shoes!

All of these picks range from £30 - £50 so not much extra to pay at all and there isn't a minimum spend of you want something cheaper.

How have you spent yours? My purchase is coming up!

Halloween

A couple of photos from the halloween party at the weekend. Matt went at as beetlejuice and was very convincing! I was a sort of halloween scarecrow. I don't have a full photo of my full outfit but it involved denim, wellies and alot of hay everywhere!

Harvey Nichols 10th Birthday party

Photos from the Harvey Nichols 10th Birthday party. If you follow me on twitter you would have seen me raving about this party and seen a few preview pictures - it was simply AMAZING!

It had everything, a circus theme, fantastic entertainment, fashion shows, great drinks, yummy nibbles, a Mulberry photo booth, and a dress-up box with photographer (you might have seen the photos on twitter!) I met some Birmingham bloggers for the first time too. The entrance to the Mailbox was transformed.

This is photo heavy post.....
