DECEMBER 2018 BEAUTY, FASHION & LIFESTYLE FAVOURITES

ETTIKA Cosmic Trip Earrings

I’ve been loving so many products throughout December and over the festive season, so I wanted to share them with you. There’s a lot of jewellery, fashion and interiors items, and only one beauty item this month.

NUDE Jewellery Floating Black Pearl Necklace – NUDE Jewellery, £95

This is such a delicate piece of jewellery, and what you are paying for is the quality of the genuine black pearl. It goes with everything and I love the short chain. NUDE Jewellery also do a great bespoke jewellery service if you are looking to design something unique.

ADEXE Meek Petite Rosegold Watch

ADEXE Meek Petite Rosegold Watch* – ADEXE London, £95

I love the mesh rose gold metal strap on this watch. It has a smaller face that most of my other watches, so it’s perfect to go with a night out outfit. It has a very smart, classic face, so you can definitely dress it up or down. This watch also comes with an interchangeable brown leather strap.

ETTIKA Cosmic Trip Earrings

ETTIKA Cosmic Trip Earrings* – Just My Apparel, £35

I love star motifs and I fell in love with these earrings as soon as I saw them. They are incredibly beautiful and they make a real statement. These are probably my favourite earrings that I own, and I’m going to save them for glitzy occasions.

JD Williams Tweed Belted Wrap Jacket – JD Williams, Was £65, Now £31

This is a thick navy and white tweed boucle jacket with exquisite blue ribbon pipping details along the collar, and a tie waist. It keeps you really warm, but still looking smart and dressed up. The quality is great for £65, but now that it’s in the sale, you need to snap this one up.

JD Williams Suedette Biker Jacket – JD Williams, Was £65, Now £33

I’m slowly building up my collection of biker jackets, and this brown suede one, with silver hardware, slotted perfectly into my lineup. It’s not thin, but it’s not that thick and warm either. It’s probably one that i’ll wear more in spring, but I managed to get great use out of it since we had such a mild December.

ELVI Alder Funnel Neck Coat – ELVI Ladies Clothing, Was £85, Now £42.50

This orange coat is definitely a head-turner. It’s made of the cosiest teddy bear material and it’s quite oversized on me – I should probably have sized down, but I’ve been loving the fact I can wear big chunky jumpers with it. If I’ve been going out and needing to keep warm, this and a scarf have kept me super cosy. I’m a huge fan of this brand now, and the rest of their pieces look stunning.

Zegna Florentine Iris Fragrance for Men

Zegna Florentine Iris Fragrance for Men – Harrods, £165

Yes, I’m putting David’s aftershave in my December favourites because I can’t stop sniffing him. The scent of this Zegna fragrance lingers for so long and I can still smell it on him the next day. It’s a delicate, manly floral that’s warm and sexy. There’s a blend of florentine iris, jasmine, bergamot, violet and musk. This fragrance is worth every penny.

rustic wooden bar cart

Wayfair Borough Wharf Darter Serving Cart – Wayfair, £93.99

My Mum got David and I this bar cart for our living room, as part of our Christmas. It comes partially assembled – you just need to stack it up and secure the poles, then screw the wheels on. I love the industrial wood look and it goes so well in our majorly wooden living room. It’s got so much alcohol on it at the moment from Christmas.

pib Skagen Velvet Green Pouffe* – pib, £120

I was kindly gifted this Skagen velvet green pouffe from pib. David uses this as a foot stool, and it also makes a great seat when we’ve got more guests than we have chairs. It looks very luxurious and I love the multi-tonal design on the top. Mint green is such a chic colour that would go with almost any space. I’m so pleased with how this looks in the living room. pib also do other stunning stools and chairs.

Hurn & Hurn Voyage Maison Blackberry Row Monty Pheasant Stool

Hurn & Hurn Voyage Maison Blackberry Row Monty Pheasant Stool – Hurn & Hurn, £75

Another addition to our living room in December is this foot stool. The design on it goes well with our classic living room and the tiles on the fireplace, and it just adds another point of interest to the room. It’s a solid, sturdy piece that’s been made well with quality wood and fabric. Great seat for visiting children.
