Shopping update…


 So I’ve been living life without a watch which – when you have your mobile on you 24/7 isn’t really a big deal. However, since starting my new job and being unable to look at my phone time has become a mystery for me throughout the day. Thankfully York has a huge outlet and yesterday I found this beauty. Designed by Karen Millen with Swarovski crystal inlays this rose gold watch was £72.50, not bad when you consider its supposed to be about £160 and also that the current trends mean that you could paint just about anything rose gold and increase its value. It’s never a bad idea to ‘watch’ out for bargains!


Are you suede by these boots?


If you have been anywhere near a shoe shop over the past few weeks you will know that suede/ suede style boots are very popular right now. As attractive as they are they do pose their problems – for example how they fair in British weather which is often quite wet. There are options such as boot protector but many people don’t bother with that (as my friend said ‘it ain’t gonna kill ’em’. Personally as much as I love the look of these boots if I’m going to spend money on something I want to be sure it’s going to be durable.

That being said, if you are taken by suede-look boots then I would definitely suggest dropping in on the sale in Dorothy Perkins!
