Shoetique Boots Review...


Last week I was kindly asked by Shoetique if I would like to pick some footwear to Review. With the cold weather I have been wearing my boots, so I picked out some nice ruby coloured boots to try out. As soon as I saw them, I knew I had made the right choice. They looked great, a cheer me up, vibrant colour for Winter. They fitted perfectly as soon as I slid my foot in. Usually I have to bed new footwear in before I leave the house. Not with these boots they were comfy straight away.

On Saturday I walked about 8 mile in them. A few mile to the park, then mid morning into town and in the afternoon Christmas food shopping. They are lovely boots and as I said so so comfy. I even noticed a woman in the chip shop was just staring at my feet, think she loved them too!! ( Or else loves feet?!)

I am enjoying wearing these boots at the minute. Perfect colour to go with most of my clothes in my wardrobe, so comfy and great for shopping days and school run. They look great with dresses, jeans and leggings with a jumper dress. Watch out for lots of ways to wear them. I will be styling them over on my fashion blog Clairejustine too.

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.





About my umbrella~

  • Double layer canopy with quick dry, water repellent coating.
  • 100% electroplated steel frame and shaft. 
  • Invert & revert from wind without damage.

 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.

Christmas Jumpers From Bonmarche Review...

A few weeks ago I was kindly asked by Bonmarche if I would like to review some clothing from their website. The first thought that sprang to mind, was how my Grandma loved this shop. When she was alive we used to go on a regular shopping trips. We could never pass Bonmarche without calling in, so she could pick out something new to wear.  


When I read the email I wondered if they would sell anything for my age group? Thinking back to when my Grandma shopped here, she would often ask me if I would like anything, but at the time there was never really anything I liked.

Taking a look at their website before I decided to do the review and these sweet Christmas jumpers were the first things I noticed. Then I had a look through all their other clothing. Wow what a transformation from what I remember there were plenty of things I liked and would love to wear!  As I say the jumpers caught my attention straight away, but I also had my eye on some David Emanuel beautiful designed party dresses too. (Just in case Santa is reading!)


The first item I wore is this fun penguin jumper, so adorable!?! Designed wearing his ear muffs and scarf on. This jumper is so cosy, warm and so much fun to wear. I can guess it will go with loads of things in my wardrobe.

About the jumper
  • Fun and exciting just in time for Christmas are our launch of Novelty jumpers. 
  • Indulge in a bit of festive cheer to entertain the whole family. 
  • These make great cosy warm presents for a touch of fun
  • . Designed with a drop shoulder fit to be flattering to all.
  • Length: 63cm
  • Product Care: Machine Washable
  • Material: 98% Acrylic 2% Polyester
  • Sizes S,M,L,XL,XS
  • Price £20.00


The next day I wore this one. Aww this reindeer jumper is just so cute. I'm thinking this will look great with everything too especially grey joggers!?! and pencil skirts.

About the reindeer jumper
  • Fun and exciting just in time for Christmas are our launch of Novelty jumpers.

My thoughts

I just love these jumpers. So sweet, warm cosy and unbelievably adorable. I picked size small as I am a size 10 and this size fits perfect. I am so glad Bonmarche got in touch with me as I would have usually walked straight by their stores. As I thought they were not my age group and style of clothes. Not any more I am popping down to my local store this week to go and check out their in-store party range.


Which one do you like best?

My Perfect Christmas Dinner with Family Outfit...


A few weeks ago Marisota asked me if I would like to style some clothes for the perfect event this Christmas. I love a nights out, shopping trips and visiting family and the best day of the year for me is Christmas day. I love to spend this day with all my beautiful family.

My Perfect Christmas Day would go something like this...

All kids awake, all deny they woke up first, all deny they woke anyone else up. Ok then all up check Santa's sherry drunk carrot for reindeer eaten. Living room door open squeals, shrieks, minutes of shaking Santa has been!!All corners of room taken up by one of our children's presents. Quick breakfast washed down with tin of chocolates and mince pie. (not the whole tin).

Phone up family, wish them a Happy Christmas. Hope they had a lie in, and have had a nice morning.

Quick check all presents have been opened. Me and daughter get dressed up, nice dress the more sparkles the better. Glittery shoes or this year sandals on and a little bit of ruby red lipstick. Remember Turkey is not in oven, quickly dash to start it off.

A glass of wine for the cook when making dinner, perfect start to the day. Big dinner with all the trimming, eek.. Brussels sprouts all-round!! A few hours later it is time to eat again, grandma and granddad is coming for tea...

11 Tips On Buying And Wearing The Perfect Christmas Jumper...


I love Christmas novelty jumpers. 

We all love Christmas jumpers.

Every year me and the children have to have a new novelty Jumper. Something festive, something fun, something to celebrate Christmas. Not yet convinced the hubby to wear one, but all the rest of us love them. 

My 2nd eldest son was first off the mark this year, as he had a jumper delivered last week. Getting ready for December and 'Christmas jumper Friday'. 

 Last year I was sorting all the children out and forgot to buy the fun and cheery one I loved until the middle of December. Great my favourite jumper had sold out !! the only ones I could find were two sizes too small or two sizes too big!! In the end I went for the larger sized one..( It made me look thin when I took it off!) Remember this one?

When New Look offered to gift me my favourite Christmas jumper I was over the moon, a chance to get my hand on a jumper I love nice and early.

With only one small question, which style to go for!?!


I picked this Pale Blue Sequin Santa Christmas Jumper... 

How sweet is this one!?! 

With the lovely Santa on it ..

About my New Look Christmas jumper~
  • Sequin Santa design
  • Breathable woven fabric
  •  Simple long sleeves
  •  Rounded neck
  • Casual fit
  • Cuffed hem
  • £24.99

11 Top Tips On Buying And Wearing The Perfect Christmas Jumper...
  1. Buy nice and early!?! November is perfect. Before your favourite designs or sizes sell out!
  2. Have a spare morning visiting the shops. Take a good look at all your favourite shops and see which styles, colour, pattern you like.
  3. Not got time to shop? Open up all new windows of your favourite shops on the internet, type in the search box 'Christmas jumper' and the page will show you all the Christmas jumpers they sell.
  4. Think of what colour jeans/trouser/leggings/skirts you already own so you can match your jumper up to.
  5. Search Christmas jumpers on Google and see what jumpers people have been wearing, with which style bottoms.
  6. Think of where you will be wearing it to get an idea of how to dress it up. Party's? Home? Work?School? Shopping? Days out? Walk in the park? Pub? Cinema? Meal out?
  7. Which pattern and style will you really like to wear all December? Santa? Animals? Snowflakes? Christmas trees? Christmas pudding? Rudolph? Snowman? Tree lights? Penguin? Advent? Elf? Gingerbread man? Holly? just to name a few ideas, lol...
  8. Wear it as early as you like. Make it look like a different outfit by styling it with different  clothes~ jeans, legging, skirts ...Get the most wear out of it this year before January when it will be time to pack it away for next year.
  9. Do not get carried away! It is so easy to buy lots.. they are so sweet. {If I had money, I would buy them all}...
  10. Have fun and enjoy wearing it, this is what they are all about... 
  11.  Have a 'Christmas jumper Friday' at home throughout December, invite friends round, make mince pies and drink Sherry!...Yummy, now this sounds great... Cheers...

Rainbow Drop Lights From Cable & Cotton : Review...


I have recently been introduced to Cable & Cotton who sell these beautiful hand crafted fairy lights.

{How sweet are these lights!?!}

A beautiful and stylish way to add colour to any room. I was asked if I would like try out some of the lights to review and share my thoughts. Now which colours to pick? For which room in the house?

 Tough choice as these would look great in any room....


Checking my lights all work before fitting the shades....

Arr perfect timing to pick some colours to match my kitchen as I have just finished decorating. My kitchen has had a revamp, fresh wallpaper, a lick of paint, my units upcycled. With a new table and shelves for a brand new look at Christmas. Some multi coloured lights for the kitchen would be perfect!

 I popped over to their website to take a look at the colour range they sell. They sell 11 pre selected colour sets to choose from which are a beautiful selection of colours. {I could see all of these somewhere in my home}.  You can also choose your own colours, so if you want just one colour or to add as many colours as you would like. It is all possible.


I picked out the Rainbow drops from the pre selected colours as I knew these would be perfect to go in my kitchen, especially as I have gone for an outdoors inside look. Turns out these are their most popular ones too! They are available in sets of 20,35 or 50 lights.


About Rainbow drop lights
  • Best selling shades into one set. 
  • A spectrum of Violet, Turquoise, Pure White, Anais Green and Raspberry Red.
  •  Create this truly vibrant string of lights.
  •  Colours may vary.
  • 20 lights£22.95
  • 35 lights£32.95
  • 50 lights£42.95
  • Delivery: 3-5 days via First Class
  • 1-2 days via Special Delivery
  • UK Postage-Royal Mail 1st Class 3-5 working days £2.95
  • Express UK delivery –Royal Mail Recorded 1-2 Working Days, must order before 12pm £4.95
  • European Postage –Royal Mail Recorded 5-7 working days £5.95

The lights arrived well packaged inside a sturdy box covered in bubble wrap. I received the 20 Rainbow  light set and there was a 4 of each, of the different colour shades inside {Violet, Turquoise, Pure White, Anais Green and Raspberry Red}. Loving the see through cable and plug on them. You can then set them up how ever you like creating them into your very own style. They lights come with 2 spare bulbs and instructions how to set up. 

The shades are very fragile and I found putting the first one on tricky as I was trying not to break them. It did get easier after that. I did think at first I was cracking the shades when putting them on but the realised after reading the instruction again that this cut is normal so it gives movement for the lights to fit in. Once you have designed your lights and are happy with the colour arrangement you simply pull the two cables apart to secure the lights in position. All ready for putting in your favourite place. They are on top of my shelves now, maybe in the middle my table in December!

They also sell replacement cables, shades and bulbs for your fairy lights too.

 They look beautiful all set up and shining in my kitchen, they look so pretty and make a good focal point in any room. They would make a perfect gift for someone...

These get my 'A beautiful gift for Christmas badge'
