From a young age, I have always loved Harvey Nichols department store! I have very fond memories from my early 20s of jumping on a bus and spending my Saturdays strolling around and admiring all the designer outfits on display with my best friend. I would spend my entire months salary on a Chloé dress and go home to live off baked beans for the rest of the month!
I love the fact that Harvey Nichols has a range of categories all under one roof, from beauty, homeware and shoes – they just have it all. One thing I love the most is their incredibly unique window displays which always amaze me, especially during the Christmas period. I can’t wait to see what’s in store this year!
For a limited time Harvey Nichols have an incredible promotion until Monday 2nd November if you sign up …they are offering 10% off EVERYTHING (with a few brands excluded) with the promotion code HNAUTUMN10 – perfect for some Christmas shopping
BEAUTY & SKINCARE
I’m a total beauty addict who always loves to try new products, lotions and potions. I’m super excited about this new Tom Ford eyeshadow Honeymoon palette I purchased. The warm shades just make your eyes pop and are perfect for achieving multiple looks such as a smoky eye or evening shimmer. The Chanel healthy glow bronzing cream was recommended by my lovely makeup artist Rachel and it has become my new favourite product which gives my skin a natural sun-kissed glow. I love the fact that it’s so lightweight too! Chantecaille’s blush also gives the most gorgeous colour to the cheeks which is very natural.
I always love the iconic red lip look and two of my favourite ones are definitely the Tom Ford FAME and Dior Trafalgar. I was also recently introduced to Dior’s Prestige Rose advanced serum and I am totally obsessed! It has the most exquisite light rose fragrance and hydrates the skin too. Another go to skincare product I’m loving right now is Chanel’s sublimage cream. Although its pricey, it’s super luxurious and leaves the skin feeling so plumped and moisturized.
Since we are spending more time dining and enjoying life outdoors, coats and boots are a great investment! I purchased the most gorgeous high knee crocodile-effect leather boots from Paris Texas in both brown and black. The black pair have a slightly chunkier heel which makes it super comfy and more wearable during the day. For day and edgy and modern look, Legres black leather ankle boots are a real classic which are perfect for the rainy days.
Stand Studio have the most beautiful high-quality coats, which are a great price point for designer clothes. I definitely think it’s worth investing in, as these coats are so timeless and could be worn and kept for years. I’m also loving Low Classic’s taupe belted leather trench coat which I recently tried. The shape fits amazingly, and the colour is also very unique.
Totême is another of my go-to and favourite brands in my wardrobe this season! I find that their products are great quality, the shape fits perfectly and are always true to size. They have some gorgeous cashmere jumpers which can be styled perfectly with both jeans and leggings. I also love their classic tank tops and jeans, which are so simple, modern and timeless.
Joseph is another classic brand I love, and they have a lovely stretch leather legging which is super soft and a great alternative to denim. Wolford have a similar pair at a more affordable price point which are a fab wardrobe stable. I also love knitwear which also plays a big part in my wardrobe. Zimmerman have a super cool vintage knit with balloon sleeves which I absolutely adore. I would style the jumper with the Bottega oversized sunglasses which are so unique and stylish!

As much as I have enjoyed the casual lockdown looks, I can’t wait to put on a pair of heels and party! Although we are probably not investing so much in party looks right now, I still believe though we can purchase a timeless dress for that could be worn for a future occasions too. There are so many versatile party pieces too that can be styled in various different ways. Anna October has the most elegant black satin dress with delicate straps and a beautiful oversized bow. This is definitely a dress I could see myself wearing year on year. Another dress I love for a more modern look is the Self Portrait blazer dress, which has a stunning scallop lace trim at the bottom.
I love styling gold jewellery with my outfits and Paco Rabanne have a beautiful and affordable pair of gold-tone drop earrings, which totally remind me of my Tiffany ones. I think they are perfect, as they can be worn for both a day and evening look. As you know I absolutely love bows, Lele Sadougi have the most gorgeous black embellished velvet hair bow which adds a beautiful and elegant touch to an evening outfit.

Now that we are all at home, loungewear and all things home are probably my biggest investment right now! I love the loungewear pieces that can just be transitioned into an outdoor look. I’m obsessed with wearing a comfortable and cool silk cami tops which can then be styled with a knit jumper or cardigan on top to go out. Cami NYC have a gorgeous black lace one which can even be worn with a nice pair of trousers and blazer in the evening.
Varley have a lovely knit set of sweatpants at a great price point, which are super comfortable and perfect to lounge in around the house. If you’re looking for a cosy and stylish nightwear look, Eberjey have the most gorgeous pyjama sets too. I’m a massive fan of leggings this season and I’ve invested in so many different ones. Wolford have a great stretchy pair which are very affordable and good quality. I love a homey look with leggings and a knit jumper so I would definitely recommend investing in a pair during the winter months!
