nelly shoes

No, I haven’t jetted off to Sweden… has finally launched in the UK!

For those of you who don’t know, Nelly is the number one online fashion retailer in the Nordic region (an ASOS-esque e-tailer), and has over 10 million visits per month internationally. Hundreds of womenswear and menswear must-haves are uploaded to the site each day from over 800 external brands and 30+ in-house labels, meaning the UK now has a lot of new fashion to enjoy!

My first (of many) purchases? Some faux pearl Logan earrings (complete with Katniss braid, below), the Henrietta double ring, and – the kicker – Nelly’s Davidina fluoro heels. View Post

PHEW! What a crazy couple of weeks this has been! With the launch of a new business (OUR FIRST BOX SHIPS THIS WEEK!), Fashion Week, a plethora of new fashion and beauty launches, I have barely had time to breathe…let alone log on to my beloved little blog.

But hey! I actually find myself with a couple hours free to blog (while catching up on a month’s worth of cleaning and laundry) and I’m kind of relishing in it. Let’s kick off by announcing the winner of the Win the dress of your choice” competition!

The winner is….drumroll, merci…
