Comfy Style- Gwynedds AW 2012

One of the things I love about the blogging community is the opportunity to discover new brands, stores and products I would have never come across before, either through my own blog or reading others. And last week was no exception as I was introduced to a great brand I probably wouldn't have come across on my own.

The brand Gwynedds originally from Germany has recently been launched in the UK and their collection of pre-washed, easy to wear casual separates has really caught my eye. They offer premium casual wear and luxury basics in a range of beaut colours that really make me want to have a lot more ‘dress down’ days!

What They Say:
“Born out a love of colour and stylish nonchalance, and launched in Germany in 2007, the luxury lifestyle brand Gwynedds has arrived in the UK just in time for Autumn Winter 2012.

Colourful, contemporary and minimalist, this ‘essential’ collection, in distinctly soft cotton, is a wardrobe’s must-have for lounging around, bracing the winter chill in style, going to Pilates and travelling in style.”

My favourite pieces have got to be:
Talmee The Parka

And these hoodies and joggers!

Pieces are totally interchangeable, giving you endless ways to wear them and because they are pre-washed they have that extra softness you usually only get after a few wears and washes. Gwynedds goes by the philosophy that fashion doesn't have to be complicated, which suits me down to a T, especially on those days when you have a fashion brain freeze!

I think Gwynedds is definitely a brand to watch and I can’t wait to get my hands on one of their super soft and comfy hoodies!
Make sure you have a look on their website too- www.gwynedds.com, it’s a really cute site, I love that little bird! Pieces are also available from www.misscouture.co.uk as well.

What do you guys think? Anything you would really want?

OOTD: Pastel Checks & Fur

This is what I wore last Saturday I think, so a bit late, but better late than never! And I really liked this outfit :D

I did a bit of charity shopping that Saturday and you can see the amazeball bag I got for £3!!! I also got a pair of Jaeger trousers (for £3 too!) that I'm hoping to feature in the blog soon, just need to work out how to style them!

On Saturday night I went and watched fireworks (v.late I know!) with my parents and my sister and her boyfriend, and then we went for indian and I ate wayyyyy too much haha! Tasty though.

Probably the best bag I have or will own & only £3!!!

Final parting shot ;)

So this blog was short and sweet wasn't it! Been super busy at work, with lots of changes going on, but good ones :) I'm off to a bar in London called the Moustache Bar on Saturday, so I should have a little 'going out' outfit for you guys :)

Hope you have all had great weeks. Any fun plans for the weekend?

Movember Movember!

Since it is the month of Movember I thought I'd decided to do a moustache themed post with all my favourite tache things I have found and lusted after!

I'm sure everyone already knows what Movember is about and the causes it supports so I'll just get straight into the goodies! But if you do want to know more: Click here for the official Movember page to donate etc.

I literally don't think I've seen a better mug. IT HAS SPACE FOR YOUR BISCUITS! Need I say more?!

2. Moustache Doormat- Next- £12
If this was on my doorstep, even the worst day at work would be cured just by wiping my muddy shoes on the mat. I imagine anyway :)

3. Moustache Phone Case- Ebay- £1.99
A total moustache bargin to show your support to the Movember cause, and I have a little giggle to myself every time I read it.

A t-shirt to showcase all the moustaches of the world! I love Tee & Cake clothes too, so comfy. My fave is Mexico!

Finally a classic moustache accessory. Always a winner and I think looks beaut in just gold.

Hope you liked the moustache themed post (I'm sure there are plenty other better ones out there!
Have you brought/worn anything tache themed for this month? Or do you just wear lip tickler things all year round?!

P.S. Here's one last crazy but AMAZING moustache themed piece that I really want! But alas I cannot justify the price.
