My Personal Styling Session at Victoria Square, Belfast

I was asked a few weeks ago if I'd like to try out the Personal Shopping service at Victoria Square Shopping Centre as a way of finding something to wear to my Christmas party and a couple of other social occasions during December. Well I wasn't going to say no to that - a chance to spend a morning in the gorgeous styling booth in Victoria Square trying on rails and rails of clothing picked especially for me? Shopping heaven.

Win a Bog Standard 3-Wick Candle!

It was only a matter of time before I secured some gorgeous Bog Standard candles to give away here on the blog and the good news is that I'm going extra large.
I've got two Extra Large, 3-Wick candles to give away. One in our seasonal fragrance - Winter (below) and a second in our bestselling Linen fragrance (above). So there are two chances to win.
Our 3-Wick candles have a 90 hour burn time - really filling a big room with scent, making them perfect for hallways and kitchen/living open spaces. Though there is a knack to burning them - especially the first time and I've blogged about it on this's all about getting the first burn right.

To be in with a chance of winning one of these gorgeous candles worth £32.95 each, simply follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below. The completion will run until midnight on Sunday 4th December and I'll contact the winners by email on Monday 5th, as well as announcing their names here.

The Woolovers Cashmere Poncho

The freezing office at work has drawn me to all offers of cashmere and wool knits...have you noticed?  I am always cold anyway, so working in an baltic office is a poor outcome for me BUT as the weeks have gone on and the temperature has plummeted, I've realised that it's nothing you can't dress for and cashmere, wool, thermals and layers have become my friends.

A long overdue 'what I've been wearing'

The title says it all - I've been most neglectful on here and I can only apologise. Between work, running, singing and the full time job at home, I've barely got time to sit down and chill...not to mind blog! But I've a few posts I really have to do and this weekend coming is a less busy one so I'm looking forward to catching up.

But for now, here's what I've been wearing on the days I got pictures. Oh and if you're not a follower on social media, you won't have heard that I had my hair  chopped off. Jury's still out...I like it but I'm still adapting and getting a shock every time I look in the mirror...
