So onto the obsession. Pleated maxi skirts. I'm so glad that I'm still seeing girls swanning down Bond Street in this horrible cold weather in maxi skirts. I live and breathe in these and have done since the Summer. Recently I paid a visit to Marks and Spencer (my secret haunt at the moment for finding some hidden gems. Ok, not so secret but you know...) and picked up a sparkly gold pleated maxi skirt. Part of their Limited Collection and only £35, how could I resist? I feel so Christmassy when I wear it and am currently looking for an amazing sparkly, reindeer covered jumper to wear with it. Due to the lost camera situation I took some photos with my iphone of me in it which unfortunately doesn't really do the skirt justice as you can't see the sparkle but here's hoping my camera turns up soon.

Seeing as payday crept up on me again last week I decided it was about time to purchase the Mawi for Disney Couture ring from ASOS that I've wanted since forever. I saw Kelly Rowland wearing it on the X-Factor a while ago and it looked lovely on her (what doesn't look good on KR though!). I also spotted this joint bracelet ring from Urban Outfitters whilst browsing online too.
Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know I had some colour put into my hair this week. My hair seriously annoys me most of the time and anyone with curly Afro hair - I truly feel your pain with having to maintain it. I had it treated, cut and colour put in all for £125 at a quirky hairdressers in Kensal Rise called Funky Colour. I basically wanted it the same as Rihanna's with the caramel colour she has. Everyone seems to like it so far and I truly am embracing the 'fro!
I managed to make it to the Mulberry sample sale last week too. (My very first designer sample sale!) you can really tell the difference between women who are sample sales pros and those of us who aren't. It took place at the Music Rooms on South Molton Lane and truly was elbows at dawn!! There were loads of leopard print Alexa bags (still quite expensive though) menswear, womenswear, laptop cases, purses, jewellery and shoes - Mulberry HEAVEN. I managed to pick up a patent laptop case for £45 (which I'll be using as a clutch) and a lovely pink and lime green striped jumper for £15 (blog post to come!).
