Curl up with me - Autumn/Winter

Although its still summer, winter is slowly approaching and its becoming colder at night. This  season is definitely my favorite, i'm excited and looking forward to it. I love the rain, although summer is lovely nothing beats winter. In South Africa it doesn't snow, but its my dream to witness a white winter someday soon :)

In today's post I am going to share my favorite items to cozy up with on those cold days to survive the winter months.

1.Onesie- Who doesn't love onesies? It keeps you warm and its 
super comfy. I have the exact one pictured here,from MrP.
2.A good book- I recommend this amazing book which I am 
currently reading by Jentezen Franklin "Believe that you can" 
its about living your dream,
the process to getting there and believing in yourself.Available on Amazon.
3.Marshmallows- With my hot chocolate(cocoa) during the cold days mmm...
4.Hot Chocolate- My favorite is a cup of hot chocolate during that time, well all year round actually.
5.A comedy- I love to watch a movie in winter especially when its raining.
Nacho Libre is one of my favorite comedies and its suitable for the whole family.Available on Amazon. 
6.Fuzzy Socks- If you don't own a pair, I suggest you go get some, they are the comfiest and warmest socks ever!
7.A throw or fuzzy blanket- They are fabulous for curling up on those cold days because just like the socks, its super warm and comfy.

Hey Guys!

Today's post is a smart casual look inspired by one of my favorite big cats, the Leopard. I like all things leopard, especially its print.

For this look I paired a sleeveless graphic tee with a blue high waisted jeans and a pair of wedge sneakers.
Lastly I tied the look together with a leopard face clutch purse and a pair of black sunnies.

Red Carpet Ready

Hi Guys!

Today's post is a bit different to what I usually post.
 Weddington Way an online company which sells and hires bridal party wear, asked a select group of bloggers -me included- to participate in their current project, with the theme; 
"My dream red carpet ready look
Basically what I had to do was select a dress from the site which I liked the most and style it the way I would to complete my Red Carpet look, from the dress right down the the hair and make-up. 

My Red Carpet Ready Look


For my red carpet look I Chose the Dessy 2905 Lux Chiffon dress in Blush 
as it matches my silhouette and complexion perfectly. For shoes, accessories, make-up and nails I kept it simple and neutral. 
I chose are a pair of nude almond shaped toe slim high heel pumps.
Crystal studs and a thin crystal stud link bracelet.
 Nude square tip nails and natural face make-up with a slight pop of lilac on the eyes. The look is tied together with rose blush cheeks and nude pink lips. Lastly I chose a simple up do -loose front braid tied into a low messy bun-

Hair: A simple side braid into a low messy bun.
Shoes: Nude almond shape toe slim high heel pump.
Swarovski crystal studs and link bracelet.
Square tip nails in  nude.
Natural face make-up with a pop of lilac on the eyes, rose blush cheeks and a nude pink lip.

Weddington Way is a online bridal party store. There are over 1000 bridesmaid dresses to choose from as well as junior dresses, groomsman accessories, intimate and shape wear, rehearsal,bacherlorette and bridal shower dresses. Even maternity bridesmaid dresses, jewelry and rentals.
Weddington way is your one stop online bridal party store. 
From the features on the site  you can choose the length, color, fabric, designer, theme, season and body shape appropriate dress all in one place. 
Another awesome selection is they provide you with suggestions based on the bridesmaid dress you selected which you could use for the rest of your maids and flower girls. 

One of my favorite features is the "Create a showroom" section, basically  you select the dresses that you like then you collaborate by sharing the look with your favorite people like your family and bridesmaids. Then you can track your order which keeps you organised and helps make sure that everyone gets their dress on time. 

I personally think that Weddindton Way offers affordable dresses with an excellent service. There is yet another great feature that I have to share; you can also hire certain dresses from the site at an affordable 
price and that's not all they'll send you a second size dress based on the measurements you gave them free of charge, just in case the first one doesn't fit the way you like.
And lastly you can email a stylist straight from their site as well as make appointment to visit their showroom. 
I would recommend Weddington Way as they have so many dresses to choose from and like I said the prices are affordable, what more could you ask for ;)  

Disclaimer I  was only approached by Weddington Way if i'd like to participate I was not paid or sponsored in anyway and I was also not sent any of their products.

For this look I paired some white denim shorts with a light grey (printed, back-cutout & cropped)shift tank top.I tied the outfit together with a pair of metallic silver oxfords, a light grey headband, a gold watch and my everyday silver rings.
