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!

WHAT TO WEAR FOR THE PARTY SEASON


It's another dreary day today weather wise so I wanted to cheer everyone up with some sequins, sparkle and party wear! I absolutely love the party season, any excuse to dress up and I'm there in a flash so this seemed like the perfect blog post as we edge closer to a month of jam-packed festivities and Christmas parties. I've always got my eye on whatever sparkle is available but here are the glittering pieces which are currently right at the top of my party wishlist (clockwise from top):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            *Topshop Nail Polish In Jem > Shop Here*

It really isn't Christmas until you've watched a Christmas film whilst giving yourself a glittery manicure. This Topshop Polish in Jem is the perfect red for the festive season and it's packaged in a lovely gold mirrored box so it will be right at home on the Christmas tree too! Give it as a gift to someone special or keep it as a treat for yourself, I promise I won't tell anyone...

*Eylure Volume False Eyelashes in No.100 > Shop Here*

I love wearing false eyelashes for special occasions and over the years I've found that Eylure ones are the best. I don't like lashes to look too thick and full but this No.100 style are the perfect size for enhancing the eyes whilst still keeping the look natural.

*Topshop Christmas Mini Lip Bullet in Get Me Bodied > Shop Here *

Give your lips a refresh with this Lip Bullet in Get Me Bodied. These twist up sticks are perfect for a quick application mid-party and the soft blendable formula makes them super easy to apply. Plus, you can't really go wrong with a berry lip during the festive season.

*Asos Long Sleeve Sequin Stripe Maxi Dress > Shop Here*

I'm totally in love with this floor length sequinned maxi dress by Asos. What could be better than wavy stripes, loads of sequins and a low back to finish, I need it now! Style this number with simple strappy heels and a clutch to complete the look.

*Glittery Boombox*

I found this picture online and I'm not sure if one of these stereos exists, but if it does please feel free to contact me asap as it is amazing and I want one. Thanks! :)

*Topshop Sparkle Star Slippers > Shop Now*

We all know that when the heels get too much we need a stylish yet comfortable party shoe so there's no stopping us on the dance floor! These sparkle star flats by Topshop are the dream and will work as a casual footwear staple throughout the season. Your feet will thank me later.

*Story of Lola Sequin Clutch Bag > Shop Now*

We all need a going out bag which fits all our essentials and this Story of Lola embellished clutch bag is just the ticket. It's multi-coloured sequins means it will go with everything plus it's large enough to use for everyday too - who said sequins are just for evening!

*Topshop Maya Platform Sandals > Shop Now *

Topshop used to sell a more expensive version of this style so I'm pleased to see they have created a slightly cheaper version of this style. I love the chunky block heel and the metallic finish, making them an essential style for channeling the Seventies trend. 

*Asos Multi-Coloured Sequin Cape > Shop Now *

Last but not least is this cape of dreams by Asos which is ideal for throwing on over an LBD or teaming with a cami and skinny jeans. This cape is close to selling out (not surprising really) so snap it up before it goes!

I hope you've enjoyed my party season wishlist. What are you most looking forward to wearing this party season? Let me know in the comments below!

NAILBOX REVIEW + NEW BEAUTY GIVEAWAY!


I know I've just missed #ManicureMonday with this post but I couldn't wait another week to tell you about the amazing subscription service offered by Nailbox.co.uk where you can receive a collection of nail products straight to your door every month from brands including OPI, Nails Inc, Rimmel and many more.


The lovely team recently sent me a lovely box of treats for my hands and toes which could not have come at a better time. I haven't been allowing myself that dedicated pampering time recently so this little box of joy gave me the nudge I needed to make some time to relax. 
I would usually shop for nail polish whilst I'm out and about but it felt so much more special to receive a little box of new shades through the post - it's basically ordering yourself a gift to me, from me! If you tend to always wear variations of the same shades, this is a great way to branch out and try new colours whilst the box also includes some essential nail tools as well as an amazing nail art plate by MoYou London so there's no excuse to have bad nails now...
The shades I received are all by OPI and they are named as follows (from left to right):





- Sleigh Parking Only (Deep Plum) 
- Fashion A Bow (Pillar Box Red) 
- So Elegant (Black and Silver Glitter Polish) 

I've swatched the colours below so you can see how they look when worn.
I also received some tools for shaping my cuticles plus a Topcoat by Nail Apothecary so my nails will stay chip free for longer!
It's also worth mentioning a little more about how the service works. First of all you choose your subscription plan and decide how much you want to spend per month, then your Nailbox will be delivered on the 21st of every month and then you're free to paint your nails until your hearts content! Each Nailbox contains five items (including three or four nail polishes and one or two nail tools or treatments), so you'll never receive the same shade twice. I also think this subscription service would be the perfect Christmas or birthday gift for any nail addicts out there.


As a thank you for reading my blog I've decided to run a GIVEAWAY to win a little nail package including the OPI shade in So Elegant Plus The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Cream.

TO ENTER:

- Follow Sarah's Style Statement via GFC (Google Friend Connect)
- Comment below with the name of your favourite OPI shade

The winner will be announced on Thursday 12th November!
Good Luck and make sure you check out Nailbox.co.uk for all your future nail needs!
