Winter Boots from Hotter Shoes

Hotter Shoes ReviewAutumn and winter is the synonymous with new boots entering into my wardrobe.  I love boots and practically live in them most of the year.  I find them practical, stylish and easy to pair up with most outfits in my wardrobe.  So when the team over at Hotter Shoes invited me to try out some of their new autumn boots I was keen to put them to the test.

However, my plan didn’t go quite as it should have done because on arrival my  new pixie boots were snaffled….by none other than my mother!  Now I shouldn’t moan because she’s been pretty good to me and she’s not raised a bad daughter with her excellent parenting and I know she’d been looking for a pair of flat winter boots since hurting her foot last year but hadn’t found anything that she liked or that was comfortable enough.  So call me a sucker but they ended up in her wardrobe and so this review comes from her point of view!

A Little Bit of Sparkle for Christmas

online jewelleryYou know what they say, ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ and personally for me I love nothing than timeless classic pieces of jewellery.  Whether it’s a statement piece for a special occasion or something for every day it’s a sure fire way to find a way to my heart if you turn up with a beautifully wrapped gift box containing jewellery, whether it’s new, antique, vintage or pre-owned jewellery.

I am always doing that thing of browsing websites and dreaming of things I’d love to own, I frequently create my virtual wish list and it amuses me to think if money was no object what would I have.  One of my favourite online jewellery websites for finding quirky pieces has to be Aspens Jewellers as they excel themselves in having items that are a little bit extra special.  Aspens is more than just another faceless jewellery website, they are a family business, and in 2011 celebrated an impressive 100 years trading as an independent family business.  Something pretty special in this day of age of shops going into administration.
