Event: 20% off Carnaby Street

21 Nov

Yes people it’s the return of the Carnaby 20% off shopping party!!! 

As you may remember I went a bit mental at this last year and pretty much bought the entirety of MAC. There’s LOADS going on this year and these are the stand out best bits for me!

Dr Martens are opening their flagship store with a live band, drinks and complimentary customisation – I’ll be wearing my Docs on the night!!

Youtube’s new fashion channel FASHTAG will launch their new Ganton Street studio on the night and invite shoppers to drop by for the chance to feature in their shows – for anyone who has never featured in a YouTube vid, this is your time to tick it off the bucket list

Head to the Book Exchange in Kingly Court to hear AW12 trend talks from Grazia magazines editor-at-large Angela Buttolph – books, Grazia, trends, what’s not to love.

Vote for your favourite runway look at Cheap Monday to win a complete A/W 12 outfit – PRIZES!

My favourite shop of the moment: Monki, will be giving away free Monki bags, magazines and temporary tattoos.

Our shopping night Style Spotters will be out on the hunt for the coolest Carnaby customers to appear in an Instagram shoot with a free Illamasqua rock chic makeover and Carnaby styling session – Did someone say Illamasqua rock chic makeover??? PICK ME!

And if you have a man with a moustache: In the Newburgh Quarter, Movember pop up barber shop will have a live DJ, comic performances and a Barbershop Quartet.

Carnaby love,

Going GAGA for Geiger – 25% off!

20 Apr

As if we shopaholics needed another excuse to purchase shoes…. not that I’m complaining!

Grazia are kindly offering its readers 25% off at Kurt Geiger both in-store and online HERE.

This means that I can now vaguely consider buying the GAGA shoes I fell in love with at Westfield, London, a couple of weeks ago!

25% off the £120 price tag means they are now, a slightly more reasonable, £90. But which colour to choose? And do I REALLY need them?!

The cream would fill a gap in my shoe collection (I need some neutrals!), could be worn with black tights and are gorgeous for Spring/Summer, but the cream suede platform makes me think, one wrong step and they’d be RUINED, and we do live in rainy England!

The Navy are a bit more ‘safe’, but are they too similar to the ten black pairs of heels I own? They do look fabulous with jeans though, and a dirty puddle would affect the navy suede less! Down side… black tights would not work as well with these… or would they?

What do you reckon? I could really do with some advice! And are you going to be buying anything with the 25% off discount?
