I am a little obsessed with faux fur and sparkles…..

I think you would have to be alit hard hearted not to love these sandals just a little bit! I love faux fur on shoes (however impractical they are) and add a little sparkle and I am in heaven (always been a Miu Miu girl)

These sandals may not be practical but how much fun would they be teamed with jeans and tee running around store (personal shopping(

These shoes are gorgeous I could wear them all winter with pants, jeans, dresses and skirts.

Tales from a personal shopping life 23/3/16…….Soap Stars and more

Well it has certainly been an interesting few days in store (House of Fraser Manchester)! Monday brought all sorts of interesting people to the shopping suite.

First up was a lady who is making her mark on a local soap opera, I first met her in August when she came to buy her “character” wardrobe which was a lot of fun as she doesn’t really like shopping!! This time it was all about her personally, she needed a red carpet worthy dress as she is co hosting an awards ceremony soon.

This is the dress and she looked fabulous:

She will back soon for another red carpet dress for the Soap Awards.

Next up was a lady who was actually attending a wedding on Tuesday we laughed a lot at her last minute effort to find a dress!! No pressure with this one AT ALL!!

She actually bought a few dresses, one for the wedding a few for work.

The dress for the wedding.

My last lady on Monday had a very interesting story, she had given up a high salary, high pressure job in finance to concentrate on her family. She was however studying for an MBA at Oxford and was off to India as part of this so we needed “India ready” clothes.

She was expecting high temperatures but still needed to look smart so these are a few of the things she bought.

What else has been going on? Well people who know me may be surprised to know about my “little blue book”!! In this I am recording every penny I spend every day, I have to say it is enlightening but I know it will help me save more and waste less. I can be seen carrying it everywhere with me and it is a very pretty colour.

My shoes from Finery London arrived yesterday, what gorgeous pair of shoes for an amazing price. I am sure I will be wearing them tomorrow so an image will follow. Imagery! now that is a new project, I take a terrible photo as everyone knows but I would like to share more images with you, so I am going to practise!! I will share my progress with you.

Finery Ferncroft Slingbacks £95 here

These shoes were a steal for me firstly they had a 20% discount code for shoes then I had £15 in Finery points, result £61.


I started a new Instagram account this week called Ageing Beauty, why you may ask? Well I have long believed in certain beauty brands and my skin has definitely benefited from Chanel skincare but this year I am going challenge myself to try new and not always expensive brands. (more savings in my little blue book)

My first foray in to the action was a concealer pen!! I normally use one from Chanel but I bought one from Autograph at Marks & Spencer. I have to say so far I have not noticed any difference at all but it is early days.

Autograph Illuminating Concealer £9.50 here (the packaging is still cool)



Next trial will be foundation but I haven’t decided which one to try yet.

Well I have a busy few days coming up in the shopping suite so I am sure I will have lots of tales on Sunday.

Have a great week.



A few things that I am loving this week|Altuzarra for Target|Slogan Tees|

I have had a few moments this week where I have thought “I love that”, I am sure I do it all of the time but I thought I would share it all this time. Quite often I love it at that moment and then the next day I have moved on to something else but these have stayed on my wishlist.

I am always on the lookout for items to take on the annual trek to Lima and I love the Juliet Dunn silk dungarees, just perfect for laid back beach living.  I have also included a couple of photos that I love always and look at them often as they make me smile.

There are a few pieces that I would just love to add to my wardrobe especially the Whistles Navy Fedora and the Saint Laurent sunglasses, they would certainly add to my off duty wardrobe.

SS14 Shoes…Kitten Heels & Slingbacks |Ladylike Chic |

There is nothing quite as dainty as a kitten heel but I do think flat sling backs also carry that ladylike vibe. There are so many pairs to choose and they definitely cover all budgets. I think they look great with cropped jeans and skirts alike, a great wardrobe addition.
