Bardot dress…

I have done it again..! Asos tempted me and I completely gave in. I found this off the shoulder Bardot style dress for a bargain of £28.

How can a LBD addict like myself resist?!

It’s very soft and stretchy and a midi length to keep it chic. And a personal trick from me is to wear a skirt on top, a-line and let the dress serve as a “petticoat” works great.

Oh shoes…

I have dreamt of my very own pair of Manolo Blahnik Hangisi heels ever since Carrie Bradshaw got her blue pair..

I however cannot afford them so after looking around I found a perfect shoe at and for a much more affordable price of £38.

It’s all about taking that time to look around and we can all have our bit of bling.

Need new specs…

All of a sudden about a decade ago I started having poor eyesight and had no idea I needed glasses.

The eye doctor told me that the brain can compensate a lot until it kinda gets bad enough.

So I’m near sighted and things are pretty blurry at times, street you name it.

So in a panic I ordered my first pair not thinking about which shape suits me or which colours to avoid. I haven’t worn them half as much as I should, because frankly I hate them!

So I have to (having said this every month) really invest and maybe even learn how to wear contacts.

My eyes are my thing so I don’t like the thought of having to wear glasses, but I’m very scared about trying contacts.

The strapless bra hunt…

I used to swear by the ultimate strapless by Wonderbra but after getting slightly “older” and my body has changed with it it actually gives me “rolls” on my back and this is not something I like.

I’m curvatious but still don’t think this should happen.

So off I went on a quest for a new strapless bra. I have a few dresses that require it so I had to bite the bullet.

I have to say I tried about 15 different ones ranging from 32DD to 32E with the latter being my recommended size after a fitting.

I ended up going for a 32DD (70E eur) sadly however I had to buy a white one which is the most useless colour you can have but when they don’t stock in any other colour what are you going to do.

I do however for this reason recommend staying close to the staff in the lingerie area and fitting room so they can help you. Have regular bra fittings and remember that different styles will fit differently just like any type of garment.

Also bras don’t live forever! The elastic will wear off and they will lose their function. About every 6 months you will need a new one (if it’s regularly used) if you alternate them then just keep an eye on the fit.

Good luck!

Afternoon tea at Bea’s Cake Boutique…

I had my very first afternoon tea today in the very cute Bea’s Cake Boutique with my Swedish friend Malin.

We called in before hand and ordered vegetarian menu mostly because we didn’t want everything on the already set menu.

However the choices were amazing! And with some bubbly on the side it was perfect.

I personally would’ve wanted a much bigger range of teas but maybe this is standard I don’t know.

It was a sweet Patel interior and this particular branch was at the edge of Baker Street.

Very much recommended, I would also like to try an afternoon tea in Claridge’s or Dorchester for the sake of really dressing for the part!

One step at a time 🙂

Vintage Dior…

I don’t need designer things because I believe you can find amazing things without the price of the name.

But I have always had a small thing for Dior, and my “to go to” type bag is a clutch. So when I found this beautiful Vintage Dior clutch for £124 and also after sleeping on it, I just had to!

I found it at a website called Vestiaire Collective where you can find pre owned designer items. The beauty about this website as well is that they make sure it’s authentic items. And if the team of specialists aren’t sure they will contact in this instance the house of Dior to make sure it’s real.

Loving my new gem!

Pamela Anderson…

I really love this outfit on Pamela Anderson, LBD with a subtle little cover up.

She’s toned down her usually heavy eye make up and she looks absolutely amazing!
