Grab a Disney Store Bargain this weekend

November 21st, 2014

When it comes to looking at the most popular toys this Christmas, it is safe to say that products from the Disney Store will be right there at the top of the list. The perennial favourites Mickey and Minnie Mouse never lose their popularity, and seem to find a brand new audience every year. (My niece has recently become obsessed with Minnie Mouse – taking a cuddly version just about everywhere she goes – she’s 18months.).

This year, with lots of interest in a certain film currently in production, the Disney Store has a new, must have, range. I am, of course, talking about the new Star Wars movie, and also the tie-ins with the Star Wars Rebels series.

Star Wars Rebels is a huge hit, and so the inevitable tie-in products are extraordinarily popular. There are heroes and villains figures,  and items that can turn your child into a mini Darth Vadar or Stormtrooper, items like lightsabers and helmets that will ensure hours of fun this Christmas. If your child has Star Wars toys on their Christmas wish list, (my son Joe’s is as long as your arm…), then this weekend may be a perfect time to shop, as Net Voucher Codes has a brilliant voucher code specifically for Disney, one which can save you a whopping 20% on all sales over £50.

There are some terms and conditions with the code, so it is worth checking out any exclusions here, but this is such a good offer that I have made a little list of the items that I will be getting for Joe, taking advantage of the great saving.

PANDORA Wishes with Rochelle and Marvin

November 21st, 2014

The gorgeous PANDORA store in Birmingham’s Bullring was host to a very special, invitation only party this week. As part of the launch of the PANDORA Wishes Campaign, two of its stars, Rochelle and Marvin Humes, made a guest appearance at the party, with Xtra Factor host ( and new style crush) Sarah-Jane Crawford interviewing the couple, and then doing a DJ set in store. It was quite a night!

The #PANDORAwishes campaign is aimed at helping couples to choose the perfect presents for each other by creating a PANDORA wishlist. They have enlisted three celebrity couples to front the campaign, with Jamie and Louise Rednapp and friends Rick Edwards and Jameela Jamil being the other ‘couples’ involved. There are prizes to be won by creating your wishlist, including a £500 PANDORA gift card and a luxurious holiday in the Maldives. This then, was what the party was all about.

The first celeb to arrive was Sarah-Jane Crawford, wearing the most amazing blue glitter dress and heels. She proved to be a lovely, friendly host, with lots of time to chat and pose for photographs.

When Rochelle and Marvin arrived, there was an audible gasp at just how gorgeous this couple is – they are flawless. Rochelle was wearing a dress from her own collection for Very, with Marvin smart in a grey jacket and tie. Making their way to the stage area that had been set up in the centre of the store they stopped and chatted with some of the competition winners who had won the chance to be on the guestlist.

Marvin and Rochelle chatted about Christmas (with Rochelle admitting she already has a host of trees up in her house already!) during their interview with Sarah-Jane, and once finished, it was time to mingle with the crowd. I was lucky enough to get ‘selfies’ with both Rochelle and Sarah-Jane, and had a lovely photograph taken with my friend and fellow blogger Natasha, and both Marvin and Rochelle.

My PANDORA wishlist

The wishlists created by the celebs are chocked full of beautiful and romantic pieces. My own wishlist would be a little different – I’m a little obsessed with the new Christmas charms that can be added to the bracelets. I have a bracelet that I would love to add to, so these would be my items of choice this Christmas time.

Boohoo Plus – perfect pieces for the Party Season

November 20th, 2014

Well done Boohoo Plus! The plus size range, that was launched about this time last year, has won the prestigious ‘Best for Curves; award at the Cosmopolitan fash fest. This doesn’t really surprise me, the award is well deserved for a range that offers great choice, really smart designs and good value for the sometimes disappointing plus size clothing market.

This season, Boohoo has picked up on the key trends, and offered versions that will delight fashion fans everywhere. We have some gorgeous midi skirts, with elegant styling that is subverted by the use of velvet, mesh paneling and pu fabric that add a sexier edge to that office essential. There are embellished dresses that look amazing and totally belie their price points.

Wrapover styles, always great for the bustier lady, are well represented in classic black, but I love the fact they are also in primary brights like red and cobalt blue. And, because this is Winter dressing we’re talking about, and because we’re all dreaming of a white Christmas, Boohoo have also provided gorgeous, colourful examples of faux fur which may just be the most fun you can get in a coat. Think deep red. Think rainbow pastels.

From today, Boohoo are offering 20% off their plus size range with the code BOOHOOFABUPLUS. This makes today the perfect time to get a little piece of Boohoo into your wardrobe.
