If you didn't already know, I am going to be an auntie soon! Come January our first little baby is coming to the family, meaning my parents will be grandparents, my siblings and I aunties and uncle and of course my beautiful sister a mum!! I can't believe it. My mum and I planned a baby shower for all Ashleigh's friends and family so we could all celebrate as well as play funny games, eat and talk all things baby! It was lovely to share the day with everyone and see my sister so glowing and healthy ready to be a new mum.
For the day I did most of the creative decoration and my favourite thing was putting together a photobooth! It went down very well and everyone got snap happy with funny props and poses. Below are a few of my favourites!
For the day I wanted to wear something pretty but not too dressy. I chose my new tapestry full skirt from Chicwish, which is adorable at above knee length. Lately I have been a bit obsessed with styling a roll neck jumper under pinafores or like this, with a pretty skirt. It's one of my go to looks this winter. I put on my trusty Topshop boots, grey tights and a pretty necklace and I was good to go.

Hey all, so as you may know I live in Portsmouth (but of course work in London). One of my favourite places to go in Portsmouth in Gunwharf, which is a shopping outlet retail park type thing. There are designer, highstreet brands and amazing restuarants that sell at discounted prices, fair to say it's amazing. As a local I hear about opportunities through my blog and I love being able to share them with you guys, especially as you get to see how I would shop in my own home town.
I visited Coast, which has only been opened for a few weeks now. It was great looking around the store as well as getting a personal shopping experience. I was showed around the collections and was helped with what styles to pick for myself. By the time we got to the dressing room I had about 20 or so things to try! It was refreshing to pick things up i'd never usually and get advice on what looks good. I went away with a beautiful green knee length body con style dress with a pleather front panel. They closed off 2 fitting rooms for me and gave me advice on each item. If you ever shop in Gunwharf then the staff at Coast are very friendly and would happily help you choose just the right thing, I really enjoyed taking a look round especially in time for the festive party season!
