Black Friday!!

THIS IS NOT A DRILL! I repeat not a drill... It's Black Friday!! 🙊
When there's a sale on any websites or any shops me and my friends love this is the first thing we say to each other, totally gets your attention though doesn't it?! 

Over the past three years Black Friday in the UK has got abit mental to say the least, people pushing and shoving their ways into shops just to get a deal! Now I love a bargain and I love to shop as much if not more than most people but even for me that is just wayyyy to much, for 10% off a flat screen TV!!

So instead of rushing up early to get into the shops, simply sit in the comfort of your PJs with a cup of tea (or wine depending on time) in hand and do it all from home! Easy peasy :) 

Like most people I've been online looking for deals the past few days in the lead up to Black Friday and most online retailers have been having deals on all week such as River Island, and House of Fraser with the best of the bunch going live on Friday itself. 
In case you aren't that bothered about looking through all the sites to find out what is the best deals are I've looked around and jotted down a few that I think are the best :) (Most people are having 10-20-30% off on Friday, so realistically if you see something that is too good to be true, it likely is! Make sure the website is legit and when your paying its secure.)

Personally ASOS is one of my favourite sites anyway, it literally has so much under the one place- clothes, shoes, jewellery and even make up! They are offering 20% off EVERYTHING online, literally everything! Including Michael Kors watches!! Just enter a code at the check in before finishing. 

River island of course! They have been running deals all week from 12-2 but today there is 20% off everything from 11-3.

House of Fraser has up to 50% of selected lines, but really most of the 'good stuff' is 10-15% off including some great designer items.$ja=tsid:58624%7Ccid:321910387%7Cagid:19538316547%7Ctid:kwd-184229382%7Ccrid:91883392027%7Cnw:g%7Crnd:1979452789228337577%7Cdvc:m%7Cadp:1t1%7Cmt:e 

Boohoo has up to 50% off everything online but with the same as most sites- the good stuff is around 20% off. Most likely the stuff at 50% off- has been around a while! 

Missguided has 20% off everything online too which is great as I think they are so on point at this time of year! Enter a code at the check in, and before 7am there is free UK delivery- get in early guys! 

Public desire has 20% off everything too, the ultimate shoe shop! Code at checkout.

Superdrug has some great deals online too with savings of up to 65% 

Hybrid fashion online have a massive 30% off this season stock, use code BF30 at the checkout, 30% is a massive saving when the dresses are around £100 a go. Perfect for anyone with a winter winter or party coming up!

Shopping around really is the best way to get a great bargain, House of Fraser having 10% off beauty sounded great with all their brands, but then when I was on ASOS I realised they do some of the same brands and we're offering 20% discount. The same with boohoo clothing, some available on ASOS and at 20% off but the same stock on the actual Boohoo website with more discount. 
Looking around, taking your time and finding what you really need- not just impulse buying it because it's £3.00 cheaper are the keys to getting the real bargains on Black Friday! 
If your a little lazy and feel you just want to find the cheapest right this second, Google a website called Megashopbot, finds you the cheapest product and gives you a direct link, probably the best invention like EVER!! 
Happy shopping, love Emma xx

Maroon loving..

Maroon - probably my favourite colour at this time of year, even over black! I love it so much, and to me I feel like it never fades, it's always a statement colour every autumn/winter! 
Pinafores are also another big hit this season, along with suede, so match all three together and boom you get the cutest pinafore dress you ever did see! Of course I had to match it with black, but I think it was just how I was feeling that day. I had it hung up on my rail with a cream/white colour long sleeved ripped top and it worked so well with it too, it was just a black kind of day for me. 
It is so easy to wear and every girl knows how comfy a-line skirts are - perfect outfit for a day shopping or lunch with the girls, take the tights and polo off, swap with a tailored black shirt and pair of black strappy heels and your ready for the town! Thanks for reading, Emma xx

Dressed up VS dressed down

Is it any wonder you wore these as children? They are the most comfortable things ever!! I had bought a pair of these about a month ago, but they just didn't sit right at all - the material was so heavy and bulky, I tried to convince myself they were fine because I couldn't find another pair I liked so much, but in the end I just couldn't wear them, so I returned them. Then when I saw these I was far too excited, fitted perfect, skinner legs and lighter material! 
I love that you can wear these in totally different ways, creating so many different styles, they aren't just for certain types of people. 
I chose two different looks- dressed up and dressed down. I honestly don't know which one I prefer more, anyone that knows me knows that I love nothing more than dressing up and getting my heels on, so you would think I would go for the dressed up one more, but I love the pop of colour, casualness and 'cuteness' of the second one as well.
You could wear these in so many different ways and all year round I feel, rolling them up at the bottom makes a difference to the style of them also, adding a crop top in the summer months or a long sleeve polo and gilet in the winter months! Actually even talking about crop tops is making me cold, I'll stick to the fur for now! Thanks for reading, love Emma xx

Best buys..

This top has been in my wardrobe for around 5 or more weeks, it was originally meant to be worn to Fashion Week after I saw the most amazing patterned culotte suit from Zara, but I changed my mind that many times that I didn't end up wearing it. I'm not going to lie, I did completely forget about it after I was in that much of a rush to get it, but it's too nice to sit in my wardrobe, so I brought it out, dinner and drinks is the perfect outing for this outfit!  
I love the colour of it especially, that's why I chose it. It stands out, but yet it is such a winter colour at the same them! And I'm a sucker for roll necks at this time of the year!  
When I remembered I had this top I was going to wear it with plain black skinnies, but when I tried it on I didn't love it as much as I thought I would. I got these super tight fit ankle grazer trousers and they seemed to work with it much better, they dressed it up much better than plain jeans, just that little bit of a difference worked so well! Usually I'm not one for ankle grazers because I feel they look like I'm just too tall for them (like most things) but these ones were the perfect fit on me, they actually look like they are meant to be this length! Hurray! These type of trousers are something I should have had long ago, but just never got round to it; like a white blouse, these are something that should be in your wardrobe and will never go unused! 
The shoes as everyone knows are from Primark and are one of my favourite pairs, not only that I have but that I've ever seen from Primark! They are perfect (for me anyway!) The colours on them are brilliant, they literally go with just about anything, the heel height and the style- lace up is just everything at the moment  these were only £18 and I have deffo got my money worth from these bad boys haha thanks for reading, love Emma xx

I'm As everyone probably knows, I was at London Fashion Weekend, seen as I did nothing but upload about it when I was there! I had the most amazing trip with my friend from start to finish and I am so glad that I got to experience it all. The weather was fantastic, which made it even better; sunshine in London,what more could I want?🙊 

Suede has been in the shops, catwalks and in my wardrobe a lot recently so I knew when I was heading to LFWEND, I had to have some kind of suede in my outfits. As you all know, I live in River Island clothes, it's my favourite shop by far - it just always seems to have exactly what I want at the exact time I need it! (I say need but I mean want haha) I tried on these light grey suede culottes and instantly knew I needed them as part of my outfit and it just so happened that everything else that I tried on went so perfectly with them as I was going for a white/grey look. I brought out my inner 70s diva in this outfit with the big bouncy hair, fluffy gilet and white cuffed shirt.

And it has probably been the most comfortable outfit I think I have ever worn, I didn't have to fix myself once the entire time I wore it and when I took off my gilet the outfit still tied in together. Coming into winter, I will also get so much use out of all these pieces separately, especially the gilet - and I don't know how many times I've said it, but you can never go wrong with a white blouse, so this one was definitely a good buy! 

Bag- all River Island 

On Saturday morning, we had some free time before our show in the afternoon, so we made the most of it by getting up super early, heading into the city, getting breakfast and seeing the sites and, of course, some shopping fitted in too! 

Dress- boohoo
Shoes- River Island 

Our hotel was the Hilton on West End, and it was in such a good location to get to and from the Tube; anywhere in London you are only two or three stations away from what you want to see. We headed to see Covent Garden first and it was the most beautiful morning, so on route I stopped at the Micheal Kors shop and got myself a pair of fabulous sunglasses! 

After seeing the sites and a few street entertainers, we grabbed some Macarons from Laduree, which is something I have always wanted to do, the prettiest little shop with the most amazing Macarons in any flavour you can imagine! 

My second outfit for day two was all from Boohoo, when I seen these boots online I freaked out, I loved them so much! I had to wait a couple of days until they came back in stock in my size, so while I was waiting I was constantly checking the site for new clothes to appear, and this shirt dress appeared, grey and black were in it, but also the most vibrant blue tones, so I knew it would go with the black coat I had, but also stand out because of the blue! 

Knee high boots were everywhere during the weekend, so I'm glad I wore them, and they will go perfect with my gilet from the day before during the winter! Over the knee boots are a must have for the winter for me, last year it was my black ones, this year it's this grey colour! 

We seen the Henry Holland show on Saturday and it was a crazy collection, we got front row tickets, so it was great to be able to see it from this angle. 

I know it doesn't seem like a difference, but you can't get the whole look from a few rows back I feel, so I'm glad I got to see it from the frow, the shoes of the Peter Pilloto show the day before were definitely worth seeing front row as well! 

The pop up shops were great and showed you some amazing up and coming designers, as well as some well known ones too. If only I had the right bank balance to have bought everything I seen! 

On Saturday evening, our friend traveled up to meet us after the show and we went for a few drinks, it was a great night and ended the weekend so perfectly, I wish I could do it all again! Can't wait to the next one! 🙊 thanks for reading, love Emma xx
