Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend, even if it was pretty damn cold!
I’ve had the obligatory January cold/flu so I’ve been reaching for all the layers I can find and to stay extra warm I think all the cosy accessories are a must- hats, gloves and scarves! Plus, I’ve heard it’s getting even colder this week, to as low as -3 today so you may see me wearing two sets of gloves soon!
I don’t really have a specific style when it comes to accessories but I’ve recently been moving away from wearing black and I think that although black accessories have a place I really like wearing lighter coloured neutrals or pops of colours too. I really love a scarf, I picked that up from my mum and even in the summer I like a silk scarf but if it’s cold enough I definitely wear a hat and gloves!
I picked a few of my favourites down below…
What are your go-to accessories on colder days?

Cakes have to be one of my favourite food groups. I’m always on the quest for the cutest and tastiest cupcake.
And there are some good contenders in London but Primrose bakery is probably my favourite. Not only are the cakes delicious but the store in Primrose Hill is just the cutest!
Last week I got to indulge in some cake with some of my absolute favourite blogging girls- Jess, Ellie and Meg. I don’t get to see these babes as often as I’d like, so it’s always such a treat when we get to hang out together, especially when cake is involved!
Cake choice is always a tricky one for me but in the end I went for a super adorable merengue cupcake, Ellie got a Gluten-free one, Jess- red velvet and I believe Meg’s was caramel. They were all super pretty, so naturally we had to take a few photos before we even had a chance to take a bite. But if you’re ever looking for the cutest cafe in north London, this is definitely it!
You may have spotted we’re all also wearing matching Sterling Silver Sweetie Charm bracelets from iconic British Brand: Links of London. This is actually my first Sweetie Bracelet ever, after lusting after one for the last ten years. That said I have some other Links of London pieces which I wear almost everyday, they’re such great quality and my other pieces are totally different to this bracelet, so there really is something for everyone.
Although we all have Sweetie bracelets, they’re all slightly different as we picked individual charms to suit our own personality. I personally went for a Sterling Silver feather, Silver Sapphire & Blue Topaz Evil Eye and the Keepsakes Sterling Silver Flip Flop Charm– a rather eclectic group but I think that’s the magic of charm bracelets. You can decide to have a theme, pick to only have a certain colour, have ten charms or just one, actually even none- the Links of London Sweetie bracelet is equally as beautiful with no charms. I personally went with no theme; just what ever I loved as to be honest I’m fed up of themes (especially Instagram ones!)
Do you have a Links of London Sweetie Bracelet? What charms would you add to your bracelet?
Currently on my wishlist are a handful of
beauty products with a few other things here and there, they are largely luxury
products which I would love to receive for Christmas!
I have been lusting over the Tom Ford lipsticks every since they were released,
they are super luxurious and the colours are stunning- with Christmas around
the corner they’re even more on my mind as I would love to see one under the
The Bobbi Brown Warm Eye Palette
one of the most beautiful case’s that I’ve ever seen for eyeshadow. You also
get nine stunning, wearable, bronzes, gold and deeps browns. Although it’s a
little more expensive than some of the popular palettes, it would still be my
pick of the palettes released this autumn/winter.
I fell in love with the colour of this
Colbat Blue Dune Clutch
, it’s great for adding a pop of colour and looks
expensive even though it’s actually quite affordable!
Just like everyone else, I have been after
a new diary for 2015 and although I love my Moleskin Diary I am getting a
little bored. Paperchase have the most perfect ones at the moment. They are all
affordable and fun but also look like they would last quite a while.
Let me know in the comments what is
currently on your wishlist.
