2015'S FAVE OUTFITS



Isn't time a weird old thing.
I feel like this year has flown by, but then when I went to put this collage together I was horrified by my posts kind of pre August time! Some of the things I wore this time last year I just wouldn't wear now and most of my photos made me severely cringe. Thank goodness I saw the light and prized myself away from the old faithful self timer. How horrendous! So instead of a 2015 outfit review post, as I intended, it's now a 2015 favourite outfit post. That's ok isn't it? I'm afraid I just couldn't bare to include some of the oldies.
 I would never want to delete or edit out old posts (as tempted as I was) but it just showed me how much of a journey my blog has come on in even a year. Yes I did just drop the J-bomb. Only because I'm feeling all weird and thoughtful, reminiscing on my year in clothes and blog posts. Anywho lets cut all this crap and save it for a nice deep 'reflection' post that I will no doubt write on new years day whilst feeling all hung over, full of takeaway and nostalgia.
 
 
Over and out & lets see what 2016 has to hold! Less jeans I hope.

TEDDY BEAR









H&M Teddy Coat (similar) | have Best Zelda Crossbody Bag c/o | Topshop Boots (similar) 
 
 
MERRY CHRISTMAS Y'ALL!
 
I hope you had a magical time, I nearly ate a whole wheel of brie in 2 days and now I feel horrendous.
 
Working partly in retail I don't really get much of a break this time of year, but I did have Christmas Eve off and this is what I wore. #OOTD Christmas edition if you will.
 Shock horror, Josh hadn't finished his Christmas shopping, so we took a trip into town. It was a bit rainy and windy, hence the hair touching and grumpy face. Josh also said my coat smelt like a wet dog, but other than that I had a lovely old time. We went for a massive fried breakfast before shopping and I literally don't think I've stopped eating since. 
I'm obsessed by this jacket by the way. I found it in the H&M sale for like £29 and I don't think I've taken it off since. I've been oogling over teddy style coats for a while now so I'm glad I've finally found one. It is super oversized and the sleeves could probably fit 4 of my arms in each, but I kinda like it. My theory is that it makes me legs look thinner (although I don't think that's entirely true.)
 
I blogged a little while ago about my beloved Callie Bag from Have Best and this little clutch is my latest addition from their website. It reminds me of one that I pined over from Zara for ages, but couldn't quite justify... I think it was over 100 squids... so at £15 this bad boy is an absolute steal! I'll probably take it for its second outing on New Year to.
 
Peace out for now

ASOS CHRISTMAS SALE PICKS



 
 
I'm not going to lie, because lying is bad. Last night, to my delight, I received the email I had been longing for. The mother of all Christmas emails; the Asos sale had launched. I logged into my saved items quicker than you can say "Nut roast with cranberry sauce", but my opened mouth smile turned quickly into a big frown when none of my items had gone in, and were talking at least 20 items that I had saved for the big day. Gutted. Also, a jumper I had been really wanting had gone out of stock. Double gutted.
So last night I sat in my blanket, crossed legged, Made in Chelsea on scrolling through pages and pages of the sale. It didn't take long before I found some corkers and my saved items turned from 20 to about 50, so the smile returned. These are my top picks. I've had my eye on those Western boots for a little while, but unlucky for me they're out of stock in my size. Someone obviously really doesn't want me to shop at the moment!
So grab yourself some bargies before I have a few glasses of wine tonight and add them all to my bag!
 
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS PARTY OUTFIT











Topshop Boutique Dress (alternative colour) | Topshop Mules | Have Best Bucket bag | Missguided Camel Coat
 
 
I've got my work Christmas party coming up this weekend, so as all girls do, I've been pre planning what I'm going to wear. I've titled this post an 'alternative' Christmas party outfit, because it's not your typical glitzy, sparkly little festive number... because that is just not me! I literally cant think of anything worse than wearing a sequined bodycon dress. Don't get me wrong, that sort of thing looks amazing on some people, but it makes me feel like Pete Burns. If you don't know who that is, get on Google right now. So instead I've gone for a more casual Topshop Boutique stripe sweater dress. I actually had my eye on this little bad boy for a while, but it went out of stock pretty much as soon as it came in. Eventually, to my delight, I did manage to get my hands on one and this is a great excuse to wear it out. I'm going to pair it with my fave little Topshop mules and my trusty Missguided camel coat. I'll probably do a nice dark vampy mac lipstick to, I love a dark lip in the winter!
 
Over & Out

FAUX





 
Coat - Vero Moda (similar) | Jeans - White Stuff (similar) | Bag - Zara (similar) | Sunnies - Quay Australia | Converse - Office
 
 
It's been a chilly old weekend down in ol' Suffolk. So much so, I have dug out my trusty fur coat. When I wear anything fury I like to dress it down with oversized tees, some form of denim and trainers. I think if I dressed it up or wore it with heeled boots I would probably be a bit conscious and feel like I have a touch of the 'pretty womans' about me. Which is not me at all, I'm a bit of a scruff bag really!
 
Also, I'm sure it's pretty obvious, but this is of course faux fur!

CHRISTMAS WISHES




 
 
It's that time of year again. I'm giddy with excitement and feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. I finished my Christmas shopping today (yes I am an eager beaver) and now I'm starting to make a mental note of all the delicious things I'd like to find under the tree on Christmas morning! Mainly copper, denim & make up apparently. I may have got a bit carried away with the Saint Laurent triangle bra, at £435 I think I might be pissed off more than anything if my boyfriend brought me that. Think of all the shoes, clothes and porcelain pineapples you could get for that. I think a Topshop £20 alternative would do. Although I can dream about being that rich than I could afford 2 tiny triangle shaped pieces of fabric to wear on my bandonkadonks for half a grand, right?
 
My wish list is a little bit different this year, it has a lot more homey things now that I've moved out. I have become a bit obsessed with home ware. My favourite place in the world right now is TK Maxx. I could literally spend hours in there, you just never know what you might find. I was in there this morning in fact and got so carried away with excitement that I almost brought a yellow china cockatiel. Luckily my dad rang me on the way to the check out and snapped me out of my weird TK Maxx daze. I put the cockatiel down and swiftly left. I did However, see an amazing set of cocktail and wine glasses with copper stems. I almost feel like I don't want to write about this, I don't want anyone else going to snap them up before payday. If you do, I will find you and I will probably do nothing because I'm the least confrontational person in the world.
 
I feel like I need to go back to TK Maxx right now. Maybe I will.
 
 
See ya!

SUNDAY BRUNCH









 
 
I wore this little ensemble when I went out for brunch with Josh on Sunday. We were both feeling a bit rough (hence the sunnies) so went for a big greasy fry up. I'd like to say I was hungover because I'd been out partying til the early hours. However, the truth of it is I went out for a mulled wine after work, was home by 8:30 and couldn't sleep because it was so windy out & I had a sore throat. I told you it was boring.
 
I've become obsessed with anything long line this Winter. I asked Josh if he liked this Zara jumper, and he said "might as well cut a hole in the top of a sack"... so from that I will presume he's not the biggest fan. Who cares what boys think anyway. Unless it's Olivier Rousteing, then I care.

SUPERPEACH










 
Olivia Thong  - c/o Superpeach (£9)
Apple Briefs - c/o Superpeach (£8)
 
You have probably heard me wang on in my wish lists post before how much of a lingerie fan I am. It's one of my absolute favourite things to buy. I love how you can put on a pretty set under your clothes and no one will know but you, but it makes you instantly feel a little sassier. Saying this, I have just contradicted that statement and shown the whole world what's going on under my baggy joggers! But I was just too excited to introduce you to Superpeach, a relatively new knicker boutique who specialise in briefs, thongs and shorts... and that i'm currently a bit obsessed with! Which ever style of knicker you prefer, this brand is all about appreciating the smallest of details. From intricate lace edging, to delicate bows and wrap around body waist bands the attention to detail is stunning.
I chose two quite contrasting pieces, the Apple Briefs being super girly with the little embroidered hearts and lacey hips. Then the more fierce Olivia Thong which instantly drew me in the with body harness-esque detail. I also have to say, both pairs are super comfy! Which is often quite hard to find. Lets face it, we all have our tatty old oversized Bridget Jones knickers that we compromise style for, but I feel like with my new Superpeach knickers I have got style & substance.
 
I also have to mention how fricken' lovely Naomi from Superpeach is. Not only has she got an amazing brand on her hands she is just the nicest of people, which I always respect in a real up and coming company. It's very easy to get all la-dee-da and 'fashion darling', but she is so down and earth and sweet. Also, she has very kindly given all my readers an exclusive code for 10% off orders. Just type RAGGYDOLL10 in at the checkout.
So go and grab your superpeach knick knacks now ladies!

HOME DETAILS













 
 
 
I moved house back in August (VERY stressful), so I thought it was about time to show you some of my little details. We only rent at the moment, so can't paint and re carpet etc etc, but it so much more homely and feels much more like ours now we've got our own little bits and bobs in there. I say 'ours', but poor Josh doesn't really have much of a say, he's not a fan of my Bonjour print and he did get told off for eating a walnut out my festive nut bowl the other night. They're just for display thought right gals!? Also i've just noticed nearly every photo I have up is either of me and my dogs or me and my Mum. Woops! Not to self, must sort that out.
 
 
I've tried to link as much as I can, but if you'd like to know where anything else is from just drop me a message!

CAMBRIDGE











 
Neon Rose Belted Coat | Converse High Tops | Zara Bucket  Bag
 
 
I thought it was about time to share with you one of my favourite cities, Cambridge. I go there quite a lot, whether it's date night with the boyfriend, a summer day punting on the river with friends, or shopping with one of my gal pals, I just LOVE the place.
 It's full of various bikes, cobbled streets, amazing shops & THE the best food places. My favourite food is Japanese, something we're hugely lacking where I live, so when I go shopping with Josh for the day we often pop into Yo Sushi. My very favourite restaurant ever, Teriyaki, is in Cambridge to. We're going there on Friday for date night, and I always get so excited to go! I love me so crispy prawn roll!
Aside from shopping and food, my two loves, it's also a super beautiful place. Everyone always says it has Harry Potter looking buildings, but me having never seen Harry Potter (don't shoot me), I cant say I appreciate that... Although I do appreciate how bloomin' glorious the buildings are. Especially on a blue sky Autumn Day like this was, or on a winter evening when they're all lit up along side the Christmas lights. I can't wait to go and do a spot of Christmas shopping there, and get that warm fuzzy festive feeling!
Stephen Hawking also lives there, what a bonus!
 
Also, big up to this Neon Rose belted wool coat. My new best friend and winter companion.
 
So to sum up this post, you should go to Cambridge.
