I a big fan of Lanvin & head designer Alber Elbaz, unfortunately like a lot of Lanvin Lovers out there…I can only admire from a far! That was until H&M announced Lanvin as their next collaborative designer.
I am so excited to think that a little Lanvin number could soon be hanging in my wardrobe & like half the world I have been patiently waiting to catch a glimpse of the new collection……Well it’s time, H&M have finally allowed us a sneak peek…..
I selected some of my favourite pieces…….
I absolutely love the Faux Fur Jacket & Vest, the vibrant Pink & Yellow dresses…..who says we can’t add a splash of colour during the festive season!
You can checkout the entire collection (here). Now the only trouble is finding a spot in the huge queues on Nov 23rd!
Tips to beat the queues are welcome 😉
When it comes to cooking there are two types of people…The Cant Cook & The Won’t Cook & I’m somewhere in between. My boyfriend happens to be a great cook so I guess it’s too easy for me to “won’t cook” which in turn leads to me “can’t cook”……but of late I decided enough is enough it’s time to get back into the kitchen!
My boyfriend introduced me to Donal’s The Good Mood Food Blog, it’s packed full of simple home-cooked recipes, naturally as a choc-a-holic I chose these Whoopie Pies (recipe here). I have to say the pies were pretty easy to make, however my first batch turned out looking a little sloppy – due to me forgetting to convert the Irish oven temp to Canadian, rookie error! They were still very tasty though. I was pretty impressed with my second batch…..I guess practice makes perfect!
I’m sure you’ll have no trouble figuring out which batch is which 😉

Kate Moss is, was and forever will be one of my favourite Fashion Icons, I love her vintage boho style & looking through preview pics from her latest collection for Topshop she continues to WOW with her 1970s inspired pieces!
Jàdore….especially the cropped feathered jacket, shaggy hooded cardigan & fun fringe embroidery dress. Needless to say I’m counting down the days until it`s released on Nov 5th, which is in…….. 5 Days 10hrs 27mins & 14 secs as per the Topshop Countdown

I’m a rock chick at heart and once I clapped eyes on this faux fur jacket I knew it was meant to be! I paired it with my vintage Rolling Stone T & UO Black Skinnies…..my perfect gig outfit!
