Gift Idea (based on things I own) - KINDLE PaperWhite E-reader



I know, it's a fashion blog. right? But while we all love pretty things that we can wear (especially silk, leather and shoes!) it's also lovely to get gifts with a little bit of diversity. Especially for those of us that love a great book.

The Chap recently bought me the Kindle PaperWhite for an anniversary present, which was something I'd pondered over for a while. I've never been a huge iPad fan, and I used to use a Blackberry 'Playbook' tablet for reading. However it was never great for bright conditions etc, and so it became more of a hassle and I got out of the habit of using it. The bright white of the PaperWhite screen is perfect, plus it is just SO light to handle. I'm already slightly addicted and purchased a cute hot pink leather fold over case just to 'keep it safe'. If you like to read then this is ideal!

You can grab them over at boots.com now (and get reward points back to spend on makeup and hair stuff (just saying!). Here are the links depending upon whether you prefer the wifi only version or want to grab it with 3G also.

The Super-Stylish Thanksgiving Outfit Post for 2014 featuring Victoria, Victoria Beckham Black Diamond-quilted Asymmetric Dress



Dress to impress whatever the occasion with Victoria Beckham’s diamond-quilted dress. Styled with an asymmetric neckline, the fitted bodice design exudes natural feminine appeal thanks to its fit-and-flare tailoring. Make a statement this Thanksgiving with a stunning dress which can be yours for just shy of £600.



It is just about perfect, and hands down my favourite ever item from Victoria Beckham's signature line. It's perfect from every angle, and should you prefer a splash of colour, it's also available in a darling candy pink too.

The Update Post - Ugg Black Blayre II Ankle Boots (that I now own, hey a girl has to love birthdays!)



I realised that I never actually posted anything about my birthday! Of course if you follow me on Instagram then you will no doubt have been privy to some of my day back on the 6th of this month which included gorgeous presents, indoor skydiving, and Michelin Star fine dining (and lots of Chateau Neuf du Pape)!

Footwear-wise as you will know from here I've long had my eye on the Blayre II boots from UGG. They haven't disappointed at all - waterproof, comfortable, warm and very stylish, they don't even have a back plate on the heel to scream 'I AM A PAIR OF UGG BOOTS!'. The overall look are sleek and classy. I adore them.

I'd highly recommend them if you are in the market for a new pair of rugged yet ultra stylish winter boots for the dark evenings and mornings ahead.

The 'put them away until next Summer' Wedges Post featuring Pierre Hardy Brown Leather and Denim Wedge Sandals


Pierre Hardy
Brown Leather and Denim Wedge Sandals

You all know by now, I would imagine (unless you are new to Shoeniverse, and if so then hello you!) that I love to buy things off-season to grab a bargain. Purchases like neutral designer summer shoes are always a great investment and you can safely know that you are going to utterly rock your Summer holiday poolside look in 2015.

When we think of Pierre Hardy we think of contemporary cool, and these wedges fit the bill. Combining ecru and tan leather with a touch of indigo denim, the contrasting colours and textures keep this pair quirky. Try them with cropped trousers for a hint of ankle and a clear view of the sleek wooden heel. They'd look equally fantastic with a sarong and a bikini for grabbing a cheeky cocktail.

Down from £375 to under £190, this is a no-brainer investment piece that works for almost anyone.

Samantha's FAVOURITE Cashmere Sweater Dress for Winter 2014/15


Vince
Grey Geo Intarsia Cashmere Sweaterdress



This dress is top of my personal cashmere wishlist for this winter. Luckily it's been fairly mild thus far, but I know that when the cols snap really starts to kick in then there's nothing better than layering up with super soft cashmere, and for some reason it always feels better in grey!

This is currently at 40% off too...
