After being semi impressed by the SS15 fashion week presentation, I was keen to see the latest campaign photography and how the new collection would be come across in print especially the beautiful prints and colours. My love for this British beauty has slowly dismissed over the last two or three seasons, I have not felt excited by the new additions to the handbag family or the campaign ideas, as you will have seen in my last few Mulberry posts.

Now I have finally seen the new shots, I am still not convinced by the collection however the photography is beautiful and really embraces the British blooms theme of the season. The biggest disappointment for me is that none of the stunning jacquard floral pieces have been shot - the main element of the SS15 presentation that i fell in love with. However I am so happy that Cara Delevinge has been replaced, although i am not a massive fan of Georgia May Jagger, she does as a softer more feminine and  playful quality to the campaign, as opposed to the harder fashion edge of Cara .The thing about these images that has captured my attention is the colour palette and the almost vintage feel and it's simplistic styling.

As per usual the best element of the new collection is the accessories, not many new options this year but the reversible bag, Delphie is a great investment as essentially it's two for the price of one. The mix of pastels and bold geometric prints on the leather goods is a fresh take on the spring/summer season. Not normally a fan of the shoes, but this pastel blue and navy snakeskin effect sandals have defiantly captured my attention.


The photography is brought to life in the supporting video, which continues with the vintage vibe and touches of feminine glamour. Sit back and enjoy the video....

                 

Thoughts on the latest Mulberry offering - has it left you disappointed or headed online to lust over potential purchases?

In an attempt to try and save some money this month, just a mini haul to keep my fashion habit fueled. Some great basic's with a couple of sale bargains mixed in, whilst I am trying to hang on for the new season stock to come in before spending my hard earned pennies.


1. Hard case humbug striped clutch £19.99 New Look 
Perfect size and a great variation on a traditional clutch, saw this on Llymrs YouTube channel/blog and had to buy it. Surprisingly roomy for such a small bag.

2. Textured Insect sweatshirt, with exposed zip £12.99 H&M
Fell in love with this print the moment I saw it, originally on trousers which did not suit, glad it was also used on a great casual day piece. Great textured fabric and the print is very different.

3. Statement necklace £12 and long leaf pendant £4 Accessorize
Can never resist sale jewels - a bold statement piece with a beautiful mix of colours and a simpler leaf pendant, great as all my long necklaces seem to have disappeared.

4. Watercolour floral longline jacket £22 ASOS
My favourite sale item. Amazing print, great shape and perfect for layering both now and the approaching warmer seasons - have worn this week with a striped tee and jeans. Also a great price, down from I think £45.

5. Bright bead necklace £3 Primark
Not much you can get for only £3 these days but this necklace is great and an unusual colour combination for me, saw on my Instagram feed a few weeks ago and was pleased to find just as nice in the flesh.

6. Fashion print T-shirt £7 Primark
Great slogan tee, perfect for me. Was going to use for my zumba class but too pretty for sweat!

7. Oxblood Pony skin cross body bag £22 Dorothy Perkins
A replacement to an old faithful that finally fell apart, my favourite colour and the pony skin texture is a modern twist to a relatively simple item.

8. Slouchy cropped tee £16 ASOS
Great for lounging, and I couldn't resist the slogan.

9. Coconut and vanilla cream Candle £2.50 Primark
A new discovery - gorgeous smelling candles at a fantastic price. Had to resist the urge to buy all the scents, but chose this one, love hints of vanilla.



Would love to know what you have indulged in this month?

This year is all about new Christmas traditions - new house, new traditions, especially as this is our first year hosting the big day.

* So starting as we mean to go on - advent calendars. Cadbury Dairy Milk for the humans and weird green kitty treats for little Willow (who still has half the windows to eat even though it is now Jan). * It really is the most wonderful time of the year! * New festive Pj's (Primark long sleeved top and fair-isle Sainsburys bottoms) have to open pressies in an appropriate outfit. 
* Amazing light up star decoration, i couldn't resist. Paperchase gold and white paper chains covered in stars and stripes, which filled a Sunday afternoon with hysterics as hubby has never made paperchains before (sad!) and my beautiful tree - purple and silver with a dash of white, with one sad looking star that Willow chose to love and now looks a little sad with a hole in. 
* My boss knows me so well - yummy chocs and a bottle of bubbly, although not your run of the mill flavours, oh no - mint and strawberry and hot hot chocolate with chilli which burns the mouth, to name a few. * Christmas shopping isn't complete without a trip to the Disney store and this year a cuddle with Olaf! and some much needed DVD purchases for my collection - i am a bit of a Disney lover and was excited to see these on offer in HMV, a couple of classics and a modern favourite.


Think i may be a little obsessed with burgundy/oxblood!!!

* New high neck top from Topshop - sleeveless and longline, perfect with skinny jeans and boots. Will be a nice transitional spring item too. * Mixing it up for work with my new ASOS heart clutch bag, teamed with my grey M&S drop hem dress and ankle boots. This bag is amazing, oversized and large enough to fit in all my daily essentials, with a gorgeous gold magnetic heart fastening - £25, still on the site if you fancy a treat LOVE and the black version is currently in the sale too. * Another bag purchase a simple cross body bag from Dorothy Perkins, perfect for those hand free days, gold detailing and a touch of pony skin for some added luxury. * This month's delivery - My Little box in collaboration with Fleur de Force (my favourite youtuber with those most adorable sausage dog puppy), with more delightful goodies inside - click here for a peak inside - roll on the January box. * A small collection of "me" gifts this month, most of which you have already seen but also a fab little humbug clutch from New Look and my favourites of the month, my Pom Pom shoes from Topshop which you may have seen in my November post, so comfy and versatile even in the colder months. * The latest collection of street style inspiration on my Pinterest boards - a mix of snuggle and sparkle, which sums up December for me, check out the link for more. * My indulgent purchase from Topshop (present to me from me) this gorgeous furry cardigan, with a faux fur collar. I was instantly drawn to the amazing print and mix of colours but was put off by the price - £65 was a bit of a shock, so originally i walked away and didn't buy, but after 3 weeks of dreaming about it i gave in and managed to track one down (sold out online), and so glad i did as i haven't stop wearing it since, the perfect thickness for the office and so comfy over both jeans and dresses. Styled for work with a little lace detail dress and ankle boots.


Its Christmas!!!!!!

* Love this man sooooo much and was very impressed with the amazing spread he put on for the family, it was a raving success (he has been booked to do it all again next year), although bless him, he did feel the pressure cooking for three women who have been doing this for 20+ years!!! . * Family selfie before dessert. * Just a couple of my gifts - my mum knows me so well, a fabulous shopping bag (slogan so true) and a sparkly slipper with a mini bottle of Rose. The wine didn't last very long but the shoe has taken pride of place on my dressing table with my make up brush pot in it. Plus from my sister the book i have been very excited to read - as a footwear buyer i do have an obsession for all things shoe related and this book will be an interesting read (plus who doesn't love a good pair of flats these days). * Dressed up for the cold - my winters day uniform: jeans, UGG boots, jumper, coat and blanket scarf plus a fedora or bobble hat. * Snow day outfit - all the previous with UGG's switched out for my stunning lilac Hunter wellingtons, which were needed for the snow we got on Boxing day. * Out and about on New Year's eve with the family for a walk to tire out my neice - which did not work!!! With the obligatory family selfie needed if for no other reason than to show off the array of hats! (except my sister in law who was brave without one).

Happy New Year - i hope you all had a good 2014. It seems to have flown by and a lot of exciting things have happened - hubby and i finally moved into our own house, my little sister got married and i spent the festive season with all the people i love to name just a few. 
However i know this year has been tough for many so i am so thankful for my life and for all those that make it so wonderful - so here is to the New year and all the adventures it brings.

HAPPY 2015
