London Fashion Weekend OOTD

I couldn't think of a better title, so this post really is a what it says on the tin kinda deal. A few weeks ago it was London Fashion Weekend (yes I'm kinda behind with this post) I was invited to one of the shows in Soho Square and not really knowing what to expect I didn't dress particularly 'fashion'.

How to Wear the Pyjama Trend in Autumn

marisa thorne autumn pyjama trend uk fashion blogger

While everyone is excited that its Autumn and busting out the cosy socks and knitwear, and the Danish  Hygge lifestyle (look it up, its a thing)   I'm still yearning for summer. I'm in the minority in saying Spring/Summer is my preferred time of year, especially fashion wise. I'm really grateful that its still been sunny, as I still haven't bought a proper winter coat. Hence why I got away with this outfit.

Sugar Baby Review*

marisa thorne Sugar Baby Review

I've spotted on the internet recently a new beauty trend of coffee/ caffine body scrubs, while I know it's probably not the newest idea/ trend, when I see something reviewed a few times, it makes me curious. When I discoverd Sugar Baby and saw they were offering sugar and coffee body scrubs I requested to try some to see what all the fuss about. This brand ticks all the boxes in terms of being CF, and having all natural ingredients in them, secondly the packaging. Shallow, I know, but stuff like this is important. I was really into the packaging, easily resealable and refreshing to not use a bottle and have it take up space in my bathroom. The packaging reminded me of beachy summer days, oh and the shadows in the pictures are a creative decision ;) I've been practising my photography and flat laying... still cant flat lay :/

I'm getting a bit ahead of myself today with a Christmas themed blog post BUT before you click off and decide it's way to early for xmas themed posts yet, (I'm with ya sister!) we still have Halloween to celebrate yet! This could be of some interest to you-my fellow bloggers.

Now... I'm not the biggest xmas fan going... I know that's quite a controversial thing to say but I'm just not. Things just get really hectic around xmas and I find it quite an over-whelming time of year. That said, I do consider myself an excellent present giver. And the act of secret Santa's is really fun and convenient and that's what I've come with you today: A bloggers gift swap! The gift swap is run by lifestyle blogger Viola who runs her blog A Piece Of Viola. I found the idea through randomly scrolling through twitter and when I saw it, I instantly thought 'What a nice idea!' One of the best things I've discovered about blogging which never really occurred to me when I started, is the community. A lovely, positive place full of like minded people. Which is what appealed to me in the first place. Viola will pair you up with a like-minded blogger and you get to know each other and send each other a gift at Christmas.

What you send is completely up to you (and how much you spend of course) you can buy it, you make it if you're crafty but I loved the idea of getting to know somebody new, with similar interests. Like I said, I love Secret Santa's but we've all been victim of receiving or giving a gift from somebody who has no clue in our likes or interests, so I like that this is more personable.

If you want to be involved, and I you recommend you do! Who knows, you get paired with me! ;) Go over to Viola's #apovgiftswap page here . It has all the information about it and is really easy to apply. When you receive you're awesome gifts, don't forget to blog about it either!

Oh and for whoever is paired with me, I like cats... and tequila ;)
