Take Five: The Best of Indie Black Friday Deals

Black Friday has come to mark the launch of Christmas shopping. While many of the big high street giants have had their decorations and Christmas tunes spinning since Mid-October, it's still the last Friday in November that truly marks the beginning of the festive season.  While Black Friday has got some what of a rought rap in the last few years, it's still a great way to save a few pennies, discover new brands and pick up some great bargains. With some of my favourite indie designers taking part in Cyber Weekend there's never been a better excuse to shop local. Here are my top Indie Black Friday deals for you to spend your pay day dollah on.

Winter Style Staples

It's official, tight and boot season is upon us. Layering has swiftly went from optional to mandatory and with more wet days than dry ones at the moment, there's never been a greater need for a sensible shoe. Guess it's time to put away the open toes fluffies unless I'm going from car to bar right? Thankfully over the years I've built a pretty sweet collection of Winter ready shoes that makes the transition all the less painful.  It's goodbye cons, and hello Doc Martens.

Bride x Tested: On the importance of wedding scents

Nothing's quite as memorable as a smell. Scents have the power to instantly transport us serving as bench markers for moments in time. For that reason alone investing in a perfume for your wedding day is worth the entry price alone. The best place to start when figuring out what you want is looking at your dressing room table and seeing what perfumes you're attracted to. I've rounded up some of my favourite long lasting perfumes ranging from bright florals to smoky gourmands, just what you need when looking for that finishing touch.

The Lady Loves Her Leather

I'm a sucker for a classic which means time and time again I reach for my uniform pieces. A good jean, a classic brenton, so far, so rolled straight off of instagram right?  While I think some good basics should be part of everyone's wardrobe, that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to have a little fun with them. From leather bombers to crisp white trainers, it's the finishing touches that lifts an everyday style uniform from tried, tested, and yes, a little bt tierd, to something worth getting excited about wearing.

Lovely readers, friends, family and internet hive, I only went and got married. I've been running aroud planning, building centrepieces, foofing my hair, marrying the love of my life and spending a few days enjoying married life. I can't wait to share what I learned from engagement to the actual day but for now, I've got a little love cloud to float on.
