Wishlist Want: Lauren Conrad's Lot78 Ho Ho Ho Sweater

I'm adding this very festive Lot78 sweater to my wish list now! How cute and season appropriate does Lauren Conrad look in this Ho Ho Ho sweater! I'd never heard of Lot78 before but after a quick Google search I found that they are actually a UK based company in Notting Hill! I love when I find UK based designers and even better they only used ethically sourced materials!

It's pricey at £220 but I'm sure if it's within your budget it will be well worth the investment! Having nerves come across this line before I can't comment on the quality but I'm sure if Lauren's a fan it must be good! My wallet won't stretch to this at the moment but I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for it to go on sale and Santa if you're listening I wouldn't mind finding this in my stocking!

Pink, Grey & A Little Leopard

Sorry that I'm only just now getting around to posting my whole outfit from my trip to Harrods last week! I found this shirt at H&M a few weeks back and it was such a perfect shade of pink for me! Oh and this pair of J Brand jeans have been hiding in the back of my closet for a couple of year at least and this was the first time I wore them out!

Steals & Deals

My inbox has been inundated with so many emails for sales and discounts all weekend and I tried to just delete them all without opening them but I did end up making one order from J Crew Factory because everything was 50% off and there was free shipping too! Although the the 50% off has finished now you can you still get 30% off your order using the code 'XOFACTORY'. It was made even better by the double discount at Ebates meaning I got 6% cash back on my order! If you haven't already signed up for Ebates you can here and earn cash back on lots of your online shopping!

I also ordered this bracelet from one of my favourite Etsy seller's Oia Jules just now! Every Wednesday Elizabeth is having one item on special offer for that day only and today's is this gorgeous rose gold and dark grey rhinestone bracelet for just $20!

And these weren't on any offer but I couldn't resist ordering these Target pajamas last week after seeing them all over Pintrest! And I did get cash back on them from Ebates!

What has everyone else been buying with all these amazing discounts?

Blogger Blues

I've been such a bad blogger lately! I keep meaning to write up posts and then I get distracted by something else! Currently it's by all the Cyber Monday codes flying into my inbox! I've been extremely good but I just just cave and placed an order at J Crew Factory! Has anyone else made any bargain purchases this weekend?

Another reason I've been quiet all weekend is because my sister was home so I was busy spending lots of time with her! On Sunday we went to the Bury St Edmunds Christmas Market! It was freezing and packed but we had a wonderful time and I enjoyed my first mice pie of the season along with some mulled juice!

A Day At Harrods

Happy Friday!! At the beginning of the week I took a day a of holiday and headed down to London with my mum. The main reason of our visit was spend the day with my baby sister at Harrods and see all the Christmas window displays! We also checked out the Disney area, Cinderella's Shoe Room, Christmas World, and of course we made a visit to the  Beauty and Food Halls!

I'll just share a few quick pictures from my Instagram & twitter for now! I used the hashtag #adayatharrods for all my posts and I'd love if anyone else that heads to Harrods over this holiday season would share their pictures using the same hashtag! I love seeing pictures from my favourite store!

I'll be back with another post soon with pictures of the amazing window displays!

I hope everyone has been enjoying their weekend! I had a very busy week at work since I was only in for 3 days, but it was totally worth it! On Thursday I got to meet my friend's precious baby girl! She's the most adorable baby I have ever met and I am so in love with her! It's nice to be able to have lots of cuddles and then hand her back to her mum!!

The sweetest little girl ever!!

Changing Colours

Happy Wednesday everyone! I feel like I've been a bad blogger lately and haven't posted many outfits but here is one from the weekend when it was lovely and bright out (excuse the squinting). I love dark greens for fall, I want to get a pair of jeans in this colour too. I love this colour combination, it reminds me of the changing colours of the leaves! I also enjoyed my first red Starbucks cup of the year, everything tastes better out of a red cup, I can't explain it.

DIY: Decorated Storage Jars

When this jar was about to be thrown out at work, I grabbed it because I knew it would be perfect for storing all my polishes in! It was super easy and cheap to decorate and now I can display all my pretty polish with out them being hidden away!

You can use just about anything to decorate any size/shape of jar but I used some card, glitter varnish and washi tape. I found the monogram online from For Chic Sake and just cut the centre out! And if you haven't heard of this site before you need to go and check out all their free printables!

Have you customised anything recently I'd love to see any of your projects!!

It's almost the weekend again!!! It's going to be December before we know it. Right now I feel like I'm organised and ahead for Christmas but at the rate the days are flying past I'm going to run out of time before I realise! I've gotta work this Saturday but that means I have a shorter week of work to look forward to and I'm going to meet someone very special on my day off!

Catching up with my sister last weekend!

My very first Pinkberry,
