It’s all about the SHOES

s1

This season, shoes are taking centre stage! Make sure you take note to buy some bold colours and stylish prints to add to your shoe wardrobe this Spring.

When it comes to shoes I usually stay safe, I think the most ‘out there’ pair of shoes I have are my sparkly converse! However tonight I went along to one of my favourite places to shop ‘next Braehead’ to take a look and try on shoes in their Spring collection and fell in love with so many beautiful colours and patterns I usually wouldn’t go for.

Here’s what I tried…

The colour pop!

I LOVE these! pair them with a pair of ripped denims and a white shirt or a cute Spring dress to add some colour to your outfit.

The Metallic!

Metallics are a must right now and you can pair these with almost any outfit. I would wear these with a LBD or a pair of ankle jeans and a blazer. Or I would pair them with my calf length black tulle skirt for a more smarter look.

Stand out style!

You will definitely stand out with these stunning boots which are also incredible comfortable.

What I went for…

I decided on these stunning and a little daring snake skin boots with the cut – out heel. I cannot wait to wear these! For their first outing I will probably pair them with a pair of black ripped jeans from next and a white shirt and belt.

Fizz, Fashion and Cupcakes at 360 Champagne and Cocktails

cocktails

I am super excited about this blog because I know that if you are a fan of cocktails, bubbly, cupcakes and fashion you will get excited too. What girl doesn’t love these?!

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to 360 Champagne and Cocktails bar in Buchanan Galleries, Glasgow to one of their events which they hold on Thursday nights. Each week it is a different event, the first one I went to was a cupcake decorating class and oh my these were delicious – the diet went out the window that night! Ha! Just kidding this diet I have been talking about starting for the past year hasn’t lasted more than a couple of hours. Anyway back to cupcakes, a girl called Carrie who is a fantastic baker and chef came along and showed us the different techniques and designs you can use to decorate your cupcakes, she showed us how to make them into roses- these are so beautiful! Perfect for weddings or girly nights. We all got a shot of decorating them and this was much harder than it looked. Then the best part- we got to eat them :) They tasted just as good as they looked! After that my mum and I sat and enjoyed some complimentary champagne for going along to the event and some tasty cocktails. The team at the bar are all wonderful very talented mixologists and great to chat to!

I enjoyed it so much so that I went to the next event the week after which was a talk by the personal stylists from the OASIS Glasgow Flagship store. I went along with my friend Nina who is also a blogger we enjoyed some complimentary champagne and had a gossip before the event started. The girls Rosalind and Danielle came along with a rail of stunning spring and summer outfits (I wanted to buy it all) they spoke to us individually about the trends and how we can get the most wear out of our outfits which was fantastic. The girls were so helpful and got us really excited about our next shopping trip. What I was very surprised about is that the personal shopping service in Oasis is free! Do you need a wardrobe overhaul? Help with some summer outfits or an outfit for an event you are going to? The girls will make sure you have a fantastic experience, enjoy fizz, nibbles, girly chat and pretending you are Cher from Clueless for the day. How fabulous does this sound?

The girls are so lovely and I can’t wait for my personal shopping experience. What I am always nervous about is going along not liking anything but feeling like you have to buy something but what is great is that the girls want to make sure you go out the door happy and confident and will even give you advice on other clothes you have bought from other stores too. Why not have a girly day out shopping and enjoying some cocktails or a delicious afternoon tea at 360 Champagne and Cocktails Bar?
