pom-pom









top: primark
cardigan: topshop (last year)
skirt: ebay
belt: topshop
necklace: forever 21
hat: new look 

London yesterday was interesting and tiring! I didn't end up sleeping at allso I was literally buzzing off to much caffiene and no sleep = shaking mess. The talk and Q&A I was involved with was cut short a bit coz we didnt have enough time and two busy editors on our panel! Sat next to and chatted to the FHM editor and Grazia Daily editor! Exciting! However the day was thought provoking and gave me alot to think about. The #HPMsocial tag has lots of snippets of tips and ideas posted about during the day. I didnt agree with alot of the points as I suppose the type of blog I run is very different to traditional fashion/news related blogs. But there was alot of pratical information that I found helpful. I then went to Nandos with Kate and Emma and we had a rootin'tootin' goodtime!

Today I've been doing my normal chores and sorting out orders before going to London again for Press days (Dune, Very & River Island!) then going on the London Eye with Glossy Box! Words cannot express how happy I am to be going on the London Eye at night! I've never been on it before either so I'm very excited!

I just kept it simple today with a velvet skirt and a black top. I threw away my old velvet skirt after it got eaten by moths in the attic. So was forced to trawl ebay looking for another skater style one! Bought this pompom hat in London yesterday before going home and I love it, so cute and snug! Need to start stocking up on scarves and hats as winter is coming!

    I bought a very similar bobble hat to yours from h&m at the weekend, it's the only thing not making me too glum over the cold, foggy weather! that and it's december next week i guess :)

  19. how do you get invited to press days? obviously they contact you because you are very popular, and rightly so! but how do us lesser bloggers (lol) find out about them?

  32. The skirt's so pretty. I love the use of textures when dressing in one colour, especially with black. Plus with the pop of colour from the cardigan, love.
