COLLABORATION: GETTING PARTY READY WITH PERFECTION SECRETS


If asked, I'm pretty sure most women out there would hold their hands up and admit to having at least one embarrassing wardrobe malfunction. Let's face it, these kind of 'experiences' can completely ruin a night. From wearing a dress which is simply too tight and rips at the seam every time you dance or move an inch to when I've hobbled around the dance floor like Bambi on ice because the pair of heels I'm wearing are super painful. Yes, we've all been there!

Whilst these pretty awful wardrobe dilemmas help us to learn from our mistakes (and ensure we never wear THAT pair of shoes again!), I still think we need a helping hand when it comes to making any party look stylish and truly comfortable

So here are some going out essentials from Perfection Secrets that you'll definitely need to invest in during the party season and beyond... 

Gel Cushions > Shop Here

Save your soles with these genius stick on gel cushions which can be placed on the soles of your shoes to make the ball of the foot feel super comfy when you've been dancing all night long. They make such difference and could easily be removed and transferred to any shoes you decide to wear for day or night.


Heel Shields > Shop Now

To prevent painful rubbing to the heels and to stop your shoes from slipping around, simply stick these gel shields onto the back of heels, flats or sandals. They are non-slip and will stay firmly in place so your favourite (but most painful) shoes don't have to be kept in their box!
Shoe Fillers > Shop Here

Particularly useful if you prefer to wear pointed court shoes, these flexible sponge shoe fillers will protect the toes and act as a soft cushion which cannot be seen. They're also great for adjusting the fit of your shoes by half a size which is helpful if you buy shoes which are slightly too big. If only I'd known about them sooner!
For more simple yet effective fashion solutions check out the Perfection Secrets website here as there are plenty more products to fix any wardrobe dilemma! 

For an exclusive 20% OFF everything use code STYLE20 which is valid on all products until the end of January 2016. 

Wishing you all a Happy New Year and thank you for reading as always!

STYLING: HIGH STREET ROUND UP OF THE BEST STATEMENT NECKLACES

In the spirit of the festive season, I've decided to honour the statement power necklace. When it comes to choosing jewellery for me it's always been about those striking statement pieces that will instantly add impact and lift any look. Although I also like finer pieces of jewellery, I don't think they can dress up a look quite as well as a statement piece can. 


For instance, placing a statement necklace under a shirt collar, layering one over a luxe piece of knitwear or adding a chunky necklace over a simple tee can add a glamorous touch to any outfit, meaning there's no need to spend too much money on the rest of your outfit. Sometimes I think there's nothing more chic than a pair of skinny jeans, a shirt buttoned up to the top, pointed courts and that all-important statement necklace.
For evening, if you're tired of your little black dresses and in need of a style update, simply invest in a sassy new statement necklace to completely transform your look for those festive drinks or the works Christmas party.
The best part of all is you don't have to spend a fortune to make a statement necklace work wonders for you. Whether you spend under £10 or over £50 on the right statement necklace, they can be worn in so many different ways to guarantee plenty of wardrobe millage! Here are a few of my ultimate favourites:






Marks & Spencer - Tribal Stick Statement Necklace, £25 > Shop Here
Zara - Jewel Necklace, £25.99 > Shop Here

Accessorize - Starburst Statement Collar Necklace, £22 > Shop Here

Olivia Divine - Electric Blue and Crystal Statement Necklace, £25 > Shop Now 

& Other Stories - Fluid Mesh Collar Necklace, £55 > Shop Here
   Stella & Dot - Starlet Pearl Necklace, £115 > Shop Here

LIFESTYLE: OFFICE MAKEOVER INSPIRATION FOR BLOGGERS AND FREELANCERS

After recently making the decision to go freelance as a copywriter and fashion stylist, I've had to revamp a spare bedroom into an inspiring and creative office space. I think being somewhere you enjoy working is always essential which is why I've spent time and effort finding and painting the perfect little vintage bureau and also collecting bits and pieces to adorn the walls and now it's a space I'm happy to work in which helps me to be super productive. 

Whilst I've been searching for inspiration on Pinterest (I think I'm quickly becoming addicted to Pinterest) I figured that there's probably many bloggers and freelancers that this kind of post would be of interest to. 

For the coolest and most quirky pieces on the market I find the following websites/stores are best;


Whether you need a good clear out, some storage ideas or some inspiring images to fill your walls, I hope these images sourced from Pinterest will help you to enjoy your work space and most importantly, encourage you to do that work you've been avoiding!

 If you're a freelancer or blogger I hope this post has been useful to you. For more pins like this, you can follow me on Pinterest here.

FASHION: CLARKS SS16 PRESS DAY

Last week the lovely team at Clarks invited me to preview the SS16 collection and despite the fact that it was pouring with rain outside (sigh), it was amazing to see so many bright pops of colour, some statement animal prints and colourful suede styles ready to hit stores in Spring Summer next year, I can't believe I'm saying this when Christmas is just around the corner! But I must admit, seeing the sandals in all their glory did make me dream about a nice beach and a Piña colada...

You may not be planning your SS16 wardrobe this far in advance, however I'm sure this lot will give you a taster of what's to come and at least make you feel a little warmer whilst we battle through this horrid weather!
I was pleased to see that lace up sandals are making a return and I'm definitely a fan of the leopard print and metallic finish.
The pumps featured above had to be my favourite styles out of the whole collection - they tick all the boxes in terms of style, comfort and colour - love!
How gorgeous are these patent loafers from the Clarks x V&A Collaboration, a timeless classic that will always remain super stylish.
Loving the pearl detailing on these ultra chic sling back flats.
Sugary pink pastel brogues, perfect for everyday wear.
Essential occasion shoes to go with everything for Summer and forever...
The go-to Summer shoes, sliders are back! These three colourways will be sure to keep feet happy.

Do you have a favourite style from the collection? Let me know in the comments below!
