Behind The Scenes: Chiara Fashion Shoot


Last month I was lucky enough to be invited down to Chiara Fashion's HQ in Leeds for some photoshoot fun, shooting 5 different AW14 looks from their collection. For someone who runs a fashion blog, I'm pretty awks in front of the camera but I was joined by four other bloggers who definitely put me at ease. Those girls really worked it in front of the camera!

I'll hopefully have the final photos soon to share with you guys, but for now here's a few behind the scenes snaps and my makeup look from the day. Also make sure to check out the other girls: Katie from The Quick Red Fox, Jessica from Forever Miss Vanity, Laura from A Forte For Fashion, Hollie from Hollie's Closet.


Remember to check out my Christmas Gift Guides this festive season, 
first up is One For The Boys!

Christmas Gift Guide
One For The Boys

I thought I'd kick off my festive gift guides with my favourite, One For The Boys. I know the brothers, boyfriends, friends and dads in our lives can be a bit tricky to buy for, but when you do find that perfect gift it's so much more satisfying! I had a little help with the product selection for this one, from my friend Alex. If you like his picks, give him a follow on Instagram here.

Here's a selection of my favourite gifts for the guys this year, let me know which are your faves:

Hotel Chocolat Advent Calendar to Share
John Lewis, £26

My very first Christmas post of the year, how crazy is it to think we're nearly at the end of 2014?! Before you can get excited about giving and receiving lots of lovely, thoughtful gifts though, the best way to kick off the festive season and really get in the mood is by buying an advent calendar. Fact.

I know this year has very much been about the must-have sold out everywhere beauty advent calendars, but I don't think the magic of a chocolate every day of December has quite lost its charm yet. I love this Advent Calendar to Share by Hotel Chocolat, which gives you not one but TWO delicious festive flavoured truffles in each window. That means you can share your second chocolate with someone special, or maybe just have one in the morning and one when you get home! Tis the season after all.

Flavours include salted caramel, gingerbread, almond and nutmeg, cinnamon, raspberry and hibiscus, and mulled wine. So basically everything remotely Christmassy! And in the theme of sharing, Hotel Chocolat have kindly offered me one to giveaway to one of you guys.

The giveaway is open to UK readers only & closes midnight 19th November,
