Leather skirts and getting festive
Brrrr! It’s getting colder now ! Here I was last week getting some rays in the beautiful sunshine, and now it’s proper wrap-up-warm weather!
This week I am loving leather skirts. I had the chance to pop out and do some shopping and picked up this beaut from Zara. It’s a STEAL at just £25.99.
I haven’t worn it out yet, but rest assured I will do!
I have also spied these ones from Mango and from Espirit (you can get it from ASOS. I think the leather has to be good quality, and not too shiny for this look to work well, and the skirt to be just on the knee.)
I would team it with a oversized or long clutch, and either over knee black boots or these MUST have shoes I have seen from Dune which I LOVE!
This week was a bit of a prep week for me, so I went to Essex and caught up with myself after filming away and also hit the gym a bit too. I had a meeting with Lipsy up in Manchester about my Spring/Summer collection and I’m very excited about it. The first wave will hit the shops just before Christmas! I’m hoping to be able to give my Hello! blog readers a sneak preview too.
On Saturday I went up to Solihull to launch the big Touchwood shopping centre festive celebrations. I’ve never been there before and I have to say – the people who turned up to meet me were all so lovely.
Thank you Solihull for giving me such a good welcome! I wore my Lipsy poncho – you can’t buy it on the Lipsy website anymore but you CAN get it from the Next website. It’s very snuggly and perfect for this time of year.
I teamed it with a polo neck jumper, black jeans that I have had for years (I think they are Topshop) and some Zara cream boots. Here I am arriving:
I had a lovely morning and came away feeling even more festive. I can’t wait to put my tree up. In fact I might just do it this week!!!
Straight after my PA in Solihull I had to jump in a car to take me to Elstree to watch Mark tango on Strictly. I loved his performance I thought him and Karen did incredibly well. He’s so tired at the moment bless him, he’s working so hard!
I used this mascara by Benefit – ‘Beyond Mascara – They’re Real’ on Saturday, and I’m not sure if its waterproof or not but it didnt move or even smudge all day . Very impressed.
and these very cute and delicate bracelets from Chlobo
This week I will be mostly up in Manchester filming, and hopefully I will get some time to start planning my hen party! It’s all top secret I’m afraid. I mean, I don’t even know half of what my gals are planning for me… all I know is the dates and the location so who knows what will be going on!
Until next week
All my love
