Wrapping up against Autumn chill

Well it is official; autumn has arrived on our doorsteps. It always comes around too early.

Autumn weather only means one thing, more clothes to brave the cold. It is time to make the transition from light wear to the winter coat.

The winter coat is the ultimate purchase when October is rolling in fast. The good news is there is definitely a host of coats out there for us to select.


The Camel Coat

Camel might be on the forefront of everyday fashion trends these days, but this beautiful chic hue has never gone off trend when it comes to coats.

Seen on the shoulders of Katherine Hepburn and modern day beauties now like Cameron Diaz, this classic colour is the epitome glamour.

Shearling Coat

Shearling thankfully is chic, because it super warm and that is just what we need.
A tan or black lambskin coat will be in your winter wardrobe for a lifetime thanks to its long-lasting wearability.

The faux option is more realistic on the purse , but still is every bit just as glamorous.

The Fur Coat


Luxury is always in style. And let’s face it, it does not get more luxurious than gorgeous fur.

Whether it is real or faux, a glamorous fur coat will always keep you on trend and cozy, at the same time, which is hard to do.

Plus it take the guess work out of topping your perfect outfit. But remember jeans make an equally chic fur coat addition too.

Leather Biker Jacket

The leather jacket is literally the perfect transition coat, a leather jacket is actually cozy, without being bulky.

Whether it is a sleek and slim line jacket or a biker chick option featuring all the biker bells and whistles.

Going biker is in and it instantly adds street style cred to your look.

Chunky Knit Cardis

Not strictly a coat but knitted cardigans are in. Chunky, cabled knits are always great for warming up when, you want to keep it lighter than a jacket.

The ultimate look is that borrowed-from-boys cardigans have just as much staying power on the street. If you feel swamped in one try a skinny waist-defining belt.

The best of the best in beauty

Part I
Have you ever wondered what are the ultimate beauty products, that you should be hoarding and indulging in? Well I have them right here, this exercise takes a lot of work.

Even though it is not exactly hard work to use lots of luscious and glamorous products it is time consuming and take some high maintenance grooming.

Some products need more than one test to see how the withstand time. With some products being a tad expensive and on the luxurious side I threw in some quality high street brand for you to test too.
