What to wear to bed…on Christmas eve?

So this is the night,when you have all your loved ones next to you..and most of us have been preparing for the next 2-3 days for the last few weeks..if not months! I have been busy making handmade soaps, Chai Latte Tea Syrups¬†and wrapping my presents with sticky fingers! The inspiration of this post came, when my friend who is visiting me from Atlanta in the US, wanted to look for cozy pyjamas to wear on Christmas eve, as he is spending it with his friend and her parents in Brussels,Belgium! We went to a few places, and I knew I had to write a post on “What to wear to Bed…to wake up looking Christmassy!!”

I partnered with New Look, and here are some of my best Christmas Eve looks to wear to bed…something different from the party looks you would have thought! I stuck to a red and white theme, and threw in a few chunky bobble hats just in case you have a white Christmas, unlike us lot in London who are heading towards a windy and wet Christmas day.

Natalia Alaverdian Black Lace:Get The Look

Happy New Year everyone!

Thank you for being a great support all through the last year, I saw some great responses from you all and it just motivated me more to blog and deliver original content.

After the positive response towards the Monday Muse features, I was being asked to start a “Get the Look” feature,which translates all those inspirational looks to one click links for you to go and indulge.

At, I always try to bridge the gap between high street and designer labels and brands, as I know each of us have some precious few designer label items which we wear and be proud of! I am going to post my friend and fellow blogger StyleDynamo‘s post here for you to understand that value.

Get the look is a quick image inspiration look keeping in mind one of the images from the last Monday Muse, in this case Natalia Alaverdian.

Inspired by her Lace dress and Green Necklace here is our quick pit-stop to “get the look”. Lace Dress

Dinky Talks with Luise Keller

I always like going back through my year’s folders of pictures I have clicked just to ensure I have not missed a certain post or a brand I wanted to cover but just forgot about it!

And I hit Jackpot (That way I feel less guilty of forgetting where I saved these pictures) with this folder! It was a trip to an exhibition where I met quite a few brands and designers and I guess,this Holiday Season your emails will be filled with great Designer Labels and upcoming brands to explore! What Joy!

Have a look at at Luise Keller’s website to see all these amazing jewellery in exquisite materials,all hand crafted in Germany.

You can see the distinct difference in the mood,colour and textures in the Autumn Winter range (Last 2) to the Spring Summer collection with great tropical influences.

Watch this space for more to be revealed:)

Comfort Station, Brick Lane,London

On one my recent photo walks around East London I came across this real quirky store called Comfort Station, and comfort it indeed is!

This quirky little store has all things small and nice,and is a jewellery heaven! All I wanted from the store was Everything!

Sadly,I did not have much time on my hands as I was with a real busy fast walking photo group so did not get a chance to browse through everything but I got in touch with the designer behind the store Amy Anderson, who makes each of these beautiful pieces in the Brick Lane Studio using sterling silver, gold, Swarovski and antique crystals,semi-precious stones and sustainably harvested woods.

It is a little visual treat in this shop and you can see the story behind each piece (bearing in mind I had 5 minutes I gathered this information..imagine the length of this post if I was there for 20).
If you ever get a chance, please take a wander down this street and tell me what you think?
