Christmas shopping made easy?

If like me, you like to get a head start on your Christmas shopping...and try to stick to a budget, this may be of interest to you.

I've been waiting (well hoping and praying...) for the announcement that once again, Selfridges are offering up to 20% off instore and online for one weekend only.  It has been my lifeline for the past few years, helping me to get a ton of presents sorted, and saving me a bit of money in the process.  So imagine my glee when I found out it was happening again.  And that weekend? The one coming right up!

So this weekend, you can get up to 20% off all fashion and accessories and 10% off all beauty.  Pretty amazing no?  And all you need is this voucher, right here.

Don't say I never give you anything!

This can be used in all Selfridges stores, but if you need to get your fix online these are the codes you need...

SELF20 - 20%* off fashion, accessories and homewares
SELF10 - 10%* beauty, fragrance and wines

Go forth and shop! And if some presents for you accidently drop into your shopping bags, don't worry, I won't tell :)

20% off Uggs at Selfridges? Go on then....

Now I know, I know, this may not be the most 'fashion' post but I can't help it.  I bloody love UGGs.

I bought my first pair about 7 years ago and they are well and truly my winter staple.  In fact as soon as the temperature dips below about 16C I am yanking on that sheepskin and keeping my feet toasty warm!

So I was rather pleased to learn that Selfridges currently have 20% off all UGG boots online - from the classics to the more 'fashion' styles, and considering the price keeps creeping up every year (what's with that eh?) it looks like the perfect time to get your new pair ready for winter.

Click here to see what's on offer...

I've got my eye on the Maylin Cuff boots (how warm!!!) but I also rather fancy a pair of slippers...

Maylin oversized cuff boots, £204

What about you?  Are you an UGG fan or are they your fashion nemesis?

Let me know if you take advantage of this offer...and be quick, it ends Sunday!

Gok for Tu...collection 2.

You may remember I posted about the original Gok for Tu collection at Sainsburys a couple of weeks ago...well now I have the date for the launch of the second collection.

The first collection brought Sainsburys its best ever clothing sales on the first day of release, and from the looks of the first photo released, this may just repeat this success.

The theme of the collection has a  real 'day to night' feel with sequins and satin, and the navy and black separates are interspersed with pops of bubblegum pink.  Following this theme, the wrap dress, which was the best selling product from collection one, has been reproduced in navy and pink.  I love the look of the gold sequin cami and the black satin tuxedo jacket so here's hoping the rest of the collection is just as strong....

The collection is out on 17th November - will you be adding a few pieces to your Sainsburys basket?

Wish List Wednesday

It may be the time of year (hello fireworks and early Christmas lights!) but there's a lot of sparkle on my mind right now...

'Rainbow Connection', OPI

I am a big fan of OPI polishes, particularly the duo-chromes and glitters...pretty much the best you can get.  This crazy multi-coloured glitter polish is from the new Muppets collection and really really must be mine!

Black embellished shoulder dress, £55, Warehouse

Simple yet with enough sequins to make an impact - this dress is the perfect addition to a winter party wardrobe.

Lurex sweater, £44, Topshop

Perfect layer for the daytime, or ideal to dress up with some skinnies and a pair of killer heels - I love this sweater.

Glitter enamel earrings, £10, ASOS

Love these earrings - the statement shape is bold without being girly and the glitter enamel makes them the ideal partner for the LBDs I'll (hopefully) be donning around Christmas.  They'd look fab with jeans and a t-shirt too, no?
