On Saturday night I was lucky enough to attend the first ever Glasgow University Charity Fashion Show (blog coming soon). My date for the evening was the dapper Rhys.

I had known about the event for a couple of weeks, but as per usual left it until the night of the event to decide what to wear. Lesson learned - don't leave it until the last minute again! I tried to go for a more minimalist look and ended up just feeling really boring.

I think the trousers were the reason for me not loving the outfit. I have such a love/hate relationship with them, such a gorgeous colour but they just don't sit right on me. I expect they don't sit well on anyone else either since there were so many left over in the sale. I would say that is another lesson learned but this little leopard print fur was another Zara sale bargain and I love it! And yes I am doing that really annoying blogger thing and not putting my arms in the sleeves - sorry Lyn :)

The black polo and pointy black shoes are wardrobe essentials and I have no doubt you will be seeing them loads on here.

Now can we all stop for a second and appreciate Rhys's outfit......... hello Christian Louboutin clutch! Never invite a man out with better accessories than you, unless you want to spend the whole night insanely jealous! Rhys was looking amazing!!! He knows how to put together a look!

The fashion show was a great success and I can't wait to share all the fun from the evening with you soon. Here is a sneak peek from the night.

Until next time - lots of love, peace and sparkles........

Outfit Of The Day - Ladies in Suits

Jacket with Studs - H&M
Studded Trousers - H&M
T- Shirt - Primark
Shoes - Zara (sold out online)
Moon Necklace - Bloody Mary Metal
Is this not the most beautiful suit EVER?!!!!! I spent months trying to locate this gorgeous suit and it is finally mine! After seeing various fashionable ladies on Instagram wearing it and the fashion icon that is Solange rocking it - I had to have it! I haven't worn a suit since the 00's when I used to own loads. I would wear them with just bras underneath and pretend in my head I was Posh Spice (Spice Girls forever!)

The suit consists of a black, over sized jacket studded with blue stones. I admit I was slightly alarmed when the jacket first arrived and was so big on me, but when combined with the trousers it looks and feels amazing on. The trousers are black, slightly cropped with the same blue stones. I wasn't brave enough to do the look Solange rocked when wearing it (i.e. nothing under the jacket), instead wearing a ribbed crop top from Primark underneath and keeping my accessories simple with just one plain silver necklace. OK I did add more sparkle with my blue pointed Zara shoes, but can you really ever have too much sparkle??!!

I can't wait to mix and match this suit up with some other pieces in the coming months (sparkles are for life, not just for Christmas). How would you style this suit?

Until next time - lots of peace, love and sparkles.......

Valentine's with Argento

Just in case you hadn't noticed it is now only one week until Valentine's Day. Like I said in my last post - Valentine's Day isn't just for couples. It is the perfect opportunity to justify buying yourself a gift just because you are pretty god damn awesome. Lets be honest, everyone deserves a treat in February after a really long January.

Everyone loves jewellery at Valentine's and Argento have got everyone covered with their huge selection of jewellery and amazing brands including Pandora, Nomination, Thomas Sabo, Olivia Burton, Links of London, Michael Kors and so many more.

I am crushing so bad on the Pandora stacker rings, especially the Star Trail ring and the Red One Love ring. I also have my eye on pieces from Dirty Ruby and August Woods. There is just so much to choose from and designs to suit everyone.

Argento were kind enough to send me an amazing Valentine's gift box*. How gorgeous are the beautiful earrings they sent me - these are much needed addition to my jewellery collection. Thank you so much Argento. I also can't wait to test the fake tan and have a play with my selfie stick - apologies in advance for the instagram selfies to follow haha!

All my readers can save 20% on their next order at Argento by using the code LOVE20 (offer excludes Pandora and Nomination). And if you spend over £50 they will send you a free selfie stick with your order. Now the hard part - deciding what to hint for or treat yourself too? Happy shopping!

Lots of love 
P.S. For those of you who have been waiting for an outfit post - I finally have photographers sorted!!! I promise my next post will be me posing in a fabulous outfit. :)
