Something furry from Zara for a chilly morning…


Coat: Zara, jeans: Whistles Maya; Boots; Dune, Bag: Kate Spade


So after yesterday’s post, I’ve raided the Birmingham Oasis and relieved it of many of its striped jumpers. Ooops!


Today saw the inaugural outing of the Zara fur coat (£69.99), which I have had sitting in my wardrobe for about 6 weeks now. The timing had to be right and today was the day. It may have had something to do with the fact that I saw the much lusted after Shrimp coats in Selfridges yesterday which, on closer inspection, didn’t feel any different at all in texture to this considerably less expensive Zara one. Or it could have been that because it was a Friday I was feeling frivolous. I know, living life on the edge or what? Or maybe it was just because, at long last, I felt brave enough to venture out in it, despite the reservations of the six year old as to its shape which I get, although not to its colour which is what was I expecting. Having said that, she did keep on stroking it as I walked her in to school.


I have spent more hours in the shops this week than I can count. Next week I’m working at an event at the children’s school. We’re holding a glamour night and we will have a talk from a skincare and make up brand, there will be a hairdresser there doing up dos, along with someone doing eyebrows. I have a teacher, parents and friends modelling for me. We’re doing a metaphorical walk through the Christmas calendar together with the outfits that you may want for those events and I’m having a ball indulging my inner glam (which doesn’t often make an appearance) buying all things silk, satin and sequinned. I can’t really share any photos yet of the things that I bought but I hope to do so after the event. We only have about ten tickets left and if anyone would like one, please just drop me an email. I am soooo excited about it!


Look forward to catching up next week!

    Or maybe it was cold enough to wear such a fabulous jacket? With temperatures set to drop I hope to see this beauty lots more Beth x

    Sorry it looks cheap

      I think that's rather rude to say it looks cheap. Why say anything? Say you're not keen but that's not nice.
