two. Continuing the festive theme, I received a super cute jewellery Advent calendar from the ladies at Freedom at Topshop this weekend. I’ve popped it up next to my ‘The Snowman’ calendar. Roll on the 1st! I’m also on the hunt for a December Instagram challenge, if anyone knows of one?
three. I went along to the Clarks SS14 press day on Thursday and saw some beautiful new pieces due in next year! I’m not sure of exact dates just yet, but I’ll write up my thoughts and share some photos when it’s not so arctic outdoors. Who really wants to be taunted by open-toes when we’re nestled by the fire, eh? I can confirm the collection is lovely though: they’re moving on so quickly to a fashion-centric aesthetic. Kristabel, Aisling and I then went for a deeeelish Cha Cha Moon dinner. We also popped to Folli Follie on Bond Street for a gift-wrapping ‘do. We learnt to gift wrap ‘properly’, I still failed at life, and wrapped little Santa sacks of presents for Kids Company UK! Finally, we traipsed over to Graphic for the STYLIGHT party which was plenty of fun – lots of faux sleepover story sharing with Lucy, Clare and Lauren!
four. Currently busy planning ahead for 2014 which is slightly scary to say the least! I’m considering a few new paths: hoping to visit Seoul and we’ve confirmed our Hong Kong travels too. Exciting! It already feels like my holiday back in March was far too long ago… I also have Taylor Swift’s concert to look forward to, some potential new client work, possible Big Bang and Beast concerts and, more excitingly, just a new year to start anew in.
five. I’m finally getting to grips with my new phone too! I have the Nexus 5 now, following a year-long stint with my Samsung Galaxy S3. As I’ve mentioned before, once I get round to compiling my oddment thoughts into kind-of helpful notes, I’ll post a brief guide to Android-ness for fashion and beauty bloggers. Sound good? FYI, if you like the look of any screenshot type things you’ve seen on my Insta, I use dodol launcher and a wide array of themes that I change up weekly. (:
