London Fashion Week...

Yesterday me my husband and 2 youngest children had a lovely family fun day out in London.

London on a Saturday!?! Oh yes...

Some parts was so busy but we still had lots of fun. For the moment I had completely forgotten that it was London Fashion Week/Weekend. That was until we stumble upon everyone leaving Saturdays event. Talk about being in the right place at the right time!!

The paparazzi were outside and every time they seen someone famous they were running around taking pictures. Not sure myself who the top model/designers are in a quick look so I followed the photographers around to take some cool pictures...

I wish I had not taken my new camera. I am still learning how to use is properly and missed some great shots. Whoo and the shoes... lots of great shoe..

There were models, designers, stylists and then there was me, hehe...

House Of Fraser Review...

Last week House of Fraser asked me if I would like to take a look at their range of ladies coats and jackets. They sell many of these around the £30.00 price tag. I know they are a retailer of high quality premium brands so I was interested in seeing what range of ladies coats they offered around this price point.

Here are my thoughts opinions.

Over to their website I go to see a more detailed look at what kind off coats and jackets were in this range. I selected the ladies clothes, then shop by department, then onto coats and jackets. I opted for the low to high price and was pleasantly surprised at their range of coats and jackets starting as low as £10.00!

They have a beautiful wide range of coats and jackets from sparkly shrugs, printed Kimono's, fur style jackets, floral blazers to biker style jackets and coats.

I was torn between a few different styles from a lovely blue blazer, a tartan jacket and a lovely Jane Norman jacket.  In the end I chose the Jane Norman jacket, which was priced just under £30.00. (I notice now as I post this review, that this jacket has sold out. It must have been a bargain.)

About the jacket:
  • Get your faux fur fix this season in this timeless leather jacket. 
  • Featuring removable faux fur collar, quilted biker details, flattering slim fit, zip pockets, cuffs and front fastening. 
  • Just add a sweep of red lipstick and you will be good to go!
  • Machine Wash 30°C
  • £29.99 (Reduced}

I picked out this beautiful cream Jane Norman style biker jacket. I know this will be perfect for spring. I love the style, colour and shape, it also fits perfectly. The size is a true fit, as you would expect. I opted for the size 10.

To grab a bargain coat you have to be quick, they are selling out fast as most have been reduced in the sales.

About this post:

I got to pick a coat or jacket under £30.00 from House Of Fraser to review. I was not paid for this post and all thoughts are my own honest option.

Cath Kidson Haul...

I adore Red, Polka dots, Cath Kidston, London and London buses. So this is what I brought in the sales. I got some money off my husband and son for Christmas. I wanted to buy something special this time instead of lots of silly little things I would never wear, just because they were cheap.

First choice to spend my money was on some new Irregular Choice shoes I had seen on the Internet and I was sure I would not see anything else in Meadowhall on a shopping trip out. Then you know when you want to just buy everything in the shop?

Well that happened. I was good though I put down things I did not really need and just spent my money on 3 things I really loved.

The best thing was, everything was in the sale and I picked these all up for £56.00. That is £9.00 cheaper than the dress was before Christmas... Bargains eh!?! Can not wait to go to London again now, just might wear my new red dress and polka dot bag...Or some jeans and my London bus bag..

Where I'd Rather Be Umbrella Review...

Earlier this week I was excited to be sent a beautiful umbrella from Where I'd Rather Be to try out and review.

I love to listen to the rhythm of the falling rain hitting the windows, when it is cold outside and you are all cosy inside. I am not a fan of being caught outside in rain though! Now though if I ever am, I can be caught in style with this beautiful umbrella.

Last week I got to share all their 8 designs over on my fashion blog here. what better time to try it out, pouring with rain and windy outside. Like most people I would avoid the rain if possible, sometimes though needs must.

Not knowing which design I would be sent I was pleased to receive my favourite design ~ Life's a beach folding umbrella.

 There is 8 designs to choose from with just one question~ Where Would You Rather Be?

The umbrella is made with really high quality material. Double layer with a lovely design on the inside and plain black material on the top. The first day I used it the wind was so bad it blew my umbrella inside out, no problem here though. I just folded it up and opened it again. Perfect and no damage, (every other umbrella this has happened to before usually breaks) Not with my Where I'd Rather Be umbrella as it is Invert & revert from wind without damage. I think this one is really going to last the distance.

I think this would make a lovely present for Christmas.

I was gifted this beautiful umbrella from Where I'd Rather Be. All thoughts are my own honest opinion and I was not paid for this post...
