I feel like La Redoute is one of those websites that is always dishing out discount codes. If I recall correctly for Black Friday last year, they were offering 50% off everything – including sale items. This year, though they are only offering 40% off, their sale has actually started way earlier than Black Friday itself.
I’m always hesitant to buy clothes from them because the sizes are always off. Nonetheless, I have my eyes on a few items for my girls. However, what I want to highlight today are their homeware bits. I don’t think there is ever a time when I’m not decorating my home. I literally live in TK Maxx. I’ve found quite a few things on La Redoute that I was put off from buying due to how expensive they were. However, with this code, I think the price is finally right. Round Gold Coloured Metal Tray | From £45 t £27
Black and White Rug | From £69 to £41.40
Black and Gold Bedside Table | From £99 to 59.40
Gold Mirror | From £55 to £33
Mesia Candle Holder | From £59 to £39.40 for the largest
Ikalo Two-Colour Metal Vase | From £35 each to £21
Zafi Cushion Cover | From £27 each to £20
One of my favourite things to do is dress my kids up. Its has become somewhat of a creative outlet for me. A way to showcase my love of fashion. I was so excited when I got the chance to attend the Alexa and Alexa press day which basically showcased their A/W15 collection. Read all the way to the bottom for a little discount code!
If you haven’t heard of Alex and Alexa first of all I want to ask…Where have you been? Branded as the Net-a -Porter for children’s wear the site stocks some of the big names in kids clothing like Little Marc Jacobs, Dolce and Gabanna and Burberry. As well as clothes, the online store also stocks Toys, Nursery items and kids related home ware. This season, they have some new brands joining in. These include Someday Soon, Akid, Billy Bandit and Sophia Webster kids.
For those who have noticed, I have a ( slight ) obsession with sweatshirts, especially ones with slogans. When I was the Kenzo and Someday Soon one pictured below I fell in love!
So with further ado, here is what they have in stock for the coming season. Some of the products are already online with more to be added in the coming weeks. How amazing does the party wear rail look! I featured some of their items in my party wear edit last year and I can a lot more going into this year’s too.

My Sunday, in fact in the last couple of days, I have been incredibly busy. I’ve found myself running around like a headless chicken but not achieving anything at all. It was so bad that I didn’t manage to take proper blog pictures or schedule my regular fashion post.
I had no choice but to take my pictures indoors this week because CeCe my usual photographer went out with her Aunty. Of course, with CeCe not around, little Amelia wouldn’t let mummy take pictures with photobombing.
I have so much to share on the blog this week. I attended a couple of press days so I have Autumn/Winter sneak peaks to show from them. Also, I plan on resuming an old blog series where I used to share discount codes. They were and still are so popular hence why I have decided to start posting them again.
This week’s outfit is really simple. I chose to wear my favourite Zara dress ( which I repurchased from eBay ), a pair of Zara kitten heels and a red blazer from New Look. Today is the MHP 30 to Watch Awards which I was ‘long-listed’ for. I am so nervous because firstly, I wasn’t expecting it and secondly, I have nothing to wear!
Made of Carpet is as the name states bags that are ‘made of carpet’. Unlike tapestry bags which are made from really thin materials that end up falling apart(speaking from experience) these bags are made from ‘Oriental Rugs that initially has been made to be used for their intended purpose’. This really unique brand was inspired by the romantic Victorian Era’s fashion and art.The bags come in different shapes and sizes.
If like me you love tapestry bags then these bags are perfect for you. My favorite is the one before the last. The shape is perfect as it can carry so much and the color because it gives me options. I am already dreaming up outfits for this bag. Which one do you like?

The January sales have heightened my shopping addiction. However, to keep my spending to a minimum, I do two things – imagine 3 different way I’d way the item I covet and only buy it if it’s truly worth it. Fortunately, for my style and my bank account, a lot of items have met that criteria.
My recent sale finds has led to be dubbing myself ‘bargainista fashionista’ over on Instagram. I bought the most glorious bell sleeve dress in Zara for a mere £7.99 and I’m currently lusting over these New Balance 410s.
I’m the type to buy new clothes and wear it everyday non-stop. Take this coat for example, I bought it last week and have worn it every chance I get. The fit is exactly what I look for in a coat, but I do wish the colour was different. Say navy blue.
When it comes to navy blue coloured items, I’m like flies on s***! I’m drawn to them in a way that even I cannot describe. My style direction for 2016 is all about keeping things to a minimum. I’m drawn to greys, blacks, blues and whites with the extra pop of colour which you can see from my Instagram.
Towards the end of last year, I had an idea to revive a post I used to write but I became so busy that I couldn’t. I hope I’m able to implement it this year so every one of you can become bargainista fashionista like me.
‘Shopping Friday’ will be a regular post that’ll bring you discounts codes, heavily discounted products and sale finds.
