Excuses Excuses

Fireworks!

I love blogging. I love writing about things I'm passionate about and I enjoy meeting fellow bloggers and reading about things they’re passionate about. However, there are occasions where real life can get in the way of your hobbies and passions, or times where for whatever reason you just fancy taking a break from it. That’s the real beauty of part-time blogging for me, I don’t depend on it for an income, although I make a little money from affiliate marketing and sponsored posts, that predominantly goes towards the cost of hosting the site and not supporting me. So when I feel like taking some time away to rediscover my enthusiasm, I can do so without any real concerns or apologies.

John Lewis Secret Santa Challenge

I had promised myself that I would refrain from mentioning anything to do with Christmas before December 1st, but that was all before I was invited to take part in the John Lewis Secret Santa challenge. All good intentions have since gone out the window and I'm ready to embrace the Christmas spirit with both the bear and the hare (see the new John Lewis Christmas advert here).

The eBay Challenge - The Result!

The eBay Challenge Results

You may remember I posted about my ‘eBay Challenge’ a few weeks ago, it’s taken me longer than I expected, but here is the final result!

The challenge itself was fairly straightforward; I had to purchase an outfit (not including underwear!) from eBay for less than £50. There were three possible outfits to choose from and I asked you guys to pick the final one. After you voted in your thousands (ahem...) the result was clear, the ensemble I had to find for less than £50 was a party outfit.

Phase Eight Party Outfit Challenge

Phase Eight Party Outfits Fur Collar Edina T-Bar Platform Shoes Leopard Bag Crochet Sequin Panel Skirt Agatha Silk Tie Blouse Maggie Taffeta Dress T-Bar Mary Jane Court Thandie Clutch Bag Sienna Beaded Tapework Dress Glitter Platform Shoes

My latest blogger challenge comes courtesy of Phase Eight; who challenged the readers of their blog to put together the ultimate party outfit. The timing of this challenge is perfect, with Christmas only round the corner festive parties and events are imminent and Phase Eight have all your outfit problems solved.

The biggest challenge as it turned out was not choosing one outfit, but stopping myself from choosing hundreds. As it is I ended up selecting three, all equally versatile and perfect for the upcoming holiday festivities.

A Wallis Wonderland

Posing at the Wallis Christmas Blogger Evening Event

Last Thursday I was invited to spend an evening surrounded by Wallis’ AW12 Christmas collection - it was a true Wallis Wonderland! Guests browsed through the new collection while quaffing Champagne, sandwiches and cakes (mini éclairs - nom nom nom!). There were sequins, bold prints and snuggly knits galore. Many of the items have yet to appear online or in stores, so we were treated to a sneak peak of all the exciting new pieces about to launch.
