Autumn/Winter Flats Feat. UGG & Clarks

UGG Alloway Cheetah Flats Smoking Slippers 082

UGG Alloways in Cheetah

Long live flat shoes. I’d love to be one of those terribly chic women who dance around in heels all day, going about their business with balance and poise. That, however, is a pipe dream and the actuality of me in heels normally ends in a sprained ankle. So, it’s good news that (nice) flat shoes are still in fashion this Autumn/Winter season, and I’ve already acquired a couple of pairs for when the weather inevitably turns.

Firstly, I used a little discount and helped myself to these UGG smoking slippers. Not many people know that UGG do sell other shoes bar their rather unsavoury, but obviously very comfortable boots. I saw these on a couple of fashion bloggers and thought I’d check them out, and I’m actually very impressed. They come up a little small, so order a size up, but they are lined with sheepskin so are super comfortable; and are a very en vogue leopard print so hit the trends this year.

Clarks Black Patent Hotel Chic Loafers 080

Clarks Hotel Chic

I fell in love with these shoes when I first saw them. I couldn’t believe they are Clarks, except that I have been a convert since they released their slightly edgy brogues in Winter 2011. The pony skin look plus the patent gives the manly loafer style a feminine twist and they will be fantastic with jeans, or dressed up with black tights for a smart work meeting.

What shoes are you coveting for Autumn? I’m sure I will collect at least another 2 pairs so if you’ve seen any you’re after (monk shoes, anyone!) let me know..

La Vie est Belle: New Lancome Perfume

Lancome La Vie Est Belle Perfume 076

La Vie est Belle

Boots and their bloody £5 off perfume vouchers; gets me every time.

The newest addition to my collection is this beautiful musky, sultry number from Lancome. Reading the info after my rash purchase, I found it’s made with Jasmine, which seems to be one of the more pleasing perfume ingredients for my nose. It’s also got a very classy bottle – something as my collection grows that I care more about.

Apparently it also has something to do with Julia Roberts, and I quite like her, so that’s OK with me too.

Lancome Skincare Giftset 078

Then, I got done over by Boots again with their promise of a free gift if I brought another Lancome item. So, I treated myself to the Albar Elbaz Hypnose Mascara which I’ve had my eye on for months. Now I’m the proud owner of all these little tiny bits and pieces!
