Instagram // amyvalentinex
    
1/ Can't wait to pamper myself with my Stvdio 5 goodies! 2/ Mermaid vibes (leggings, boots)
3/ Cosy jumper selfie 4/ Lovely Christmas surprise from the lovely guys at Stag Clothing!

Ps. Get 15% off at Daniel Wellington with code 'avalentine' til 31 Dec!

Hope you guys all had a great Christmas!  I meant to publish a little happy post on Christmas day but I ended up spending my time with family and it seemed everyone else was doing them too so I thought I would spare clogging up your blog feed further!  It's been absolute bliss for me as I've got work off 'til Jan 6th and I haven't even looked at my inbox since the holiday season started - aiming to start 2015 off with a clean inbox so hopefully I'll find some time to sit down and work on them soon.  Hope you guys enjoy the rest of 2014 even if you're not lucky enough to get a little time off, can't believe this is the last Sunday Summary of the year, see you in 2015!

Sunday Summary Week 188

    
1/ Cosy jumper selfie  2/ Gorgeous new Shore Projects watch
3/ Special SANE Christmas package! (links)  4/ Found some old webcam photos

Today I'm feeling good because the Christmas holidays are nearly here - two more days and I'm off work 'til January - very different to the past couple of years where I've been working in a crappy retail job!  This hopefully means clearing out my inbox, getting lots of posts ready, applying to uni (and perhaps falling into another AHS hole - just watched ep 1 of Asylum and it's so good!) - what will you guys be doing over the Christmas holidays?

Last Minute Christmas Gift: Daniel Wellington

  

I'm terrible for leaving everything to the last minute, including Christmas gifts, and I know I can't be the only one!  That's why I'm here to help you guys out - I meant to do a complete Christmas gift guide like I did last year, but unfortunately work got in the way and of course, my blog suffered.

Anyway, onto the watch!  If you watched my latest haul you will have heard me gush about my DW - I just think they're the height of minimalistic elegance, such high quality whilst keeping the price affordable - the perfect gift for the special man or lady in your life!

You can use the discount code 'avalentine' for 15% off and the last chance to order for it to arrive before Christmas is Monday 22nd at 11am GMT, but the code runs until December 30th if you're looking to buy one with your Christmas spends! Shop Daniel Wellington here!

VLOG | TMI Tag with Pixie Lott & Bluewater Shopping Spree

Becca's video
Leanne's video

I haven't vlogged in a while so I thought I'd take you guys along with me to Bluewater as it was quite an exciting day! Apologies for the awful sound quality, apparently my GoPro doesn't do well in places with a lot of background noise! Let me know if you liked this video and if you'd like me to vlog more, and remember to check out the other videos linked above for more Pixie Lott!

BLUE VANILLA

 
 


HAT // PRIMARK (SIMILAR)
DUSTER COAT* // BLUE VANILLA
PLAYSUIT* // BLUE VANILLA
BAG* // STATUS ANXIETY
BOOTS* // SPY LOVE BUY
WATCH* // SHORE PROJECTS
BRACELET // EBAY

I've definitely found a new favourite piece in my wardrobe - I can't get enough of this gorgeous glittery duster, not seen anything like it before and it's perfect for adding a bit of pizazz to an all black outfit.  I'm loving mesh paneling at the moment, with all the party dresses having mesh cut-outs here and there (some being a little risque actually!) so I love the subtle detail on this playsuit - makes it perfect to dress up or down.  Obviously I had to finish off the look with a choker and some chunky boots, and this pair from Spy Love Buy are a new favourite, can't get enough of their clunky charm!
This is definitely something I'd go out partying in (perhaps finished off with a fur coat) - what's your partywear of choice for the winter?

Sunday Summary Week 187

    
1/ Rocking my playstation knit for #XmasJumperDay   2/ Feeling all 70s! (hand chain, bells, boots)
3/ Throwback to Shake Shack  4/ Interviewed Pixie Lott with Leanne & Becca!

This week was very exciting, especially Wednesday as I got to interview the wonderful Pixie Lott - definitely one of the best opportunities I've reaped from this whole blogging thing!  The video will be up on Wednesday so keep an eye out, hope you've all had a good week and are feeling the Christmas spirit!

Stand Tall Amongst Giants AW14

      

As I created this post so long ago I thought that I'd already published it, until I stumbled upon it in my drafts - oops!  If you follow my socials, you'll know that a couple of months ago I took a day trip into London to photograph the new Stand Tall Amongst Giants collection.  The team was so lovely and I got to shoot with the awesome Jordan Green again, who also photographed my Glamour Kills lookbook so it was nice to see a familiar face, as it's a little unnerving walking into the studio at first!  It was really cool to work with Charlie Winzar & Billy Huxley and I love the new collection, especially the harrington jackets, and the hoodies were so cosy I didn't wanna take them off!

The new collection is available on the STAG website now, and I think their collection makes for the perfect unisex Christmas gift, don't you think?
