I bought this myself the other week – an at home gel nail kit. It is SUPERB. So quick and easy to use – I will save a fortune by not visiting the nail salon. It’s the perfect Christmas present for nail lovers.

As long as there is H&M I’ll never have money!

Sometimes I try and actively avoid the H&M website – just browsing can be fatal for me. Other times I have to take a peek if I have seen a friend on Instagram wearing something that catches my eye. In the UK stock is released earlier than here so if I do see something on a friend from over there I am constantly refreshing our site here till it arrives – OCD much?

Here’s what I have been waiting for and has FINALLY arrived here!

This pink sweater apparently fits HUGE so I have ordered a small – I have a couple of oversize knits from last year that I ended up in a small with too…it also comes in grey.

How gorgeous is this pink cashmere roll neck? Just gorgeous with grey denim.

Yes I’ll be wearing both the above jumpers with this skirt – a bit bacofoil but I love it for all year round – it’s not too festive looking and could easily be worn in the summer with tan legs and sneakers and a tee.

H&M silver pleated skirt

In 1993 I had a pair of silver pants like these from TopShop – back then I think I was in a UK 8…err not so much now. I have VERY fond memories of wearing them with my green Gazelles and a long white Kick It City t-shirt (my Husband’s magazine at the time – covering all the London football teams).

Now I’m not so sure about these leggings but you know how we all love a little leopard print – I thought I might try them with a long black sweater and sneakers?

If you’re on Instagram and haven’t seen this skirt – WHERE have you been? I think every woman in the UK now owns it – wear to the Christmas party at your peril – there will probably be a dozen more there. In Atlanta this will not be a problem!

H&M sequin skirt

Grey knit with a hood…what more do I need to say?

Grey knitted hoody

…except that there are matching jogging bottoms too!!!

H&M knitted joggers

This I managed to snag in store the other day – I’m wearing it in the images below. Winter, snuggly perfection.

H&M knitted hooded dress

I have a rather expensive Acne off the shoulder sweater – you could buy that – or you buy these at just $9.99!! Grey, black, red and powder colors are available.

Happy Shopping!! I’m off to clear up the debris after a tornado hit close by yesterday! Never a dull moment!
