1 Dr Marten Rimba 7 Eye Boot £132.26 £98.61 2 Studded Ankle Boot- Bone £49.13 £36.84

Ok, so Maths isn't my strongest subject and so I'm hoping you'll apprechiate my calculations even if they are a few pennies (or pounds) out. If you follow me on Twitter you'll know how peeved I am to be English around the time of Black Friday. Nevertheless I've been relentlessly eyeing up all my favourite US stores online for any good bargains, especially Nasty Gal's 25% off shoe sale! 

From the five page long list of choices, these are my two favourite picks (most especially the Dr Marten's) Kinda gutted I spent all my money on underwear shopping this weekend but I thought it'd be worth sharing with you as the offer ends tonight so go go go!

Are you taking advantage of Black Friday this weekend if so, what have you bought?

This week has definitely been the founder of my Christmas spirit. I've been baking, ordering festive dvd's, visiting Meadow Hall's shopping centre (a girl's dream) gorging on Starbucks' winter drinks, late night walks with my pup and looking forward to the opening of my town's Frankfurt market which for me will officially mark that Christmas has arrived!

I think this week's weekend wishlist reflects my idea of winter warmers. Since the November chills have kicked in all I've wanted to wear is turtle necks and cable knit jumpers. I can't believe this long sleeved turtle neck polo is only £4.95! If you've got the patience to look through eBay searches thoroughly then finding alternatives to high street products at a fraction of the price makes it definitely worth while.

I love these moccasin style boots with the fringe detailing. I don't think I own a pair of brown shoes so can that justify the £80 price tag?

Lord of the Rings, you either love it or hate it and I'm definitely a lover. I guess this means I've got until the 14th December to take the plunge and read the book!

Hope you had a good weekend!

I've been a fan of this mega babe since '09 after admittedly listening to Mowgli's Road for about six months straight (and maybe, almost definitely knowing the dance to go with it) However relating to her current style of music, I'd have to say I've definitely been torn away and directed more towards her fashion sense. She indisputably has a rare and unique ability to pull off absolutely anything and make it look totally flawless.

After having Sky Ferreira as my October Fashion Envy I'm kinda worried I'm living my earlier teenage years all over again. One of the main things I love about Marina is her choice in lippy's, I bet her lipstick collection is quite something. Aside from everything else, she is self-righteous within her style and is something I admire.

Who's style are you enjoying this month?

Ok so you're probably wondering why my weekend wishlist has turned into a haul of skirts. Well, this week more than ever I've been skirt-obsessed. Each website, each store I can guarantee holds a skirt I wanna get my hands on.

I find that quite a lot of people seem to have this mindset that as soon as Autumn/Winter dawns we have to put our skirts to the back of the draw, but girls I refuse! (yes nana, I'm talking to you.)

I swear by tube skirts at the moment to the point where they are making a feature in the majority of my outfits. They're simple, elegant and need I mention the comfort element! I wore one out the other day with two pairs of leggings layered underneath (don't judge) and no-one had a clue.

Next is this denim number from Monki, this skirt needs to make an appearance in my life asap. I'm thinking, tights, converse and a blazer coat with a fur collar?

Glitter skirts are so damn cute, especially for the upcoming Christmas period. They're so easy to style from day to night and perfect for sprousing up a bland outfit.

Leather, hey. I have this mind-set of pleather skirts being quite seductive but I'm gonna put that aside for a moment. If you were in my head right now, you'd be seeing this baby I've chosen here, again from Monki paired with a plain top, chunky knit cardigan and a pretty huge snood. Now, I think that sounds pretty good. Don't you?

Lastly is my most darish pick I think, I've seen so many girls wearing these types of skirts and they look absolutely amazing. Whether or not that could transfer, I don't know but I thought I'd add it in anyway.

So, that's my mixed up weekend wishlist for our first week into November and only 7 more to go until Christmas!! 
Hope you enjoyed guys!

I love this time of year when bloggers start posting their individual gift ideas and so when I came across this blogger challenge bought to us by I figured I'd give it my best shot. Blogging five or more gift ideas under £35 for the chance of winning some really exciting vouchers, what have you got to loose?

Buying gifts can prove a real struggle at times, especially as there's always that one individual who you never know what to buy for. I always try and make my gifts as personal as possible and so I tried to consider this when creating my list of gift ideas to suit a range of different people, ages and tastes.

If you'd like to get involved and enter your own gift ideas then visit here for all the information regarding how. Good luck!

I've mentioned the work of Calm Gallery Prints on various occasions throughout my time on blogger and actually wrote a brief post on some of my favourite pieces, here. I can only vouch that these would make perfect gifts as an individual who would love to receive them herself. There are prints of all types and meanings ranging in prices. The two I have chosen are not merely expensive yet I feel quite honestly, priceless in thought. 

LUSH, another brand I haven't stopped singing praises about. Any of my girl friends reading this will know why I've added this to my gift ideas as they have most definitely received a few presents including similar products. I think they work great both as a gift set like this one or as individual items e.g bath bombs. The best thing about receiving a gift set is the fact that the receiver will get a variation of things to try as opposed to one or two. As the most expensive gift in my collection, I definitely think it's worth the money. Anyway, what girl doesn't love treating themselves to a good pamper? 

Nothing says personal better than this photo mobile frame, at £12 it gives you the budget and the creativity to print off and add your own respective photographs to it. Simple and inexpensive ideas such as this one can often be a lot more appreciated as you can really see the thought that has gone into it. It puts a different aspect to your generic photo frame present and there's a bit of fun to be had with it as well! Perhaps not to everybody's taste in terms of hanging in it their house but it was worth taking the chance to include it anyhow. 

MAC Lipsticks- £14 each

I know I personally would be more than happy to receive anything MAC related as a gift, especially in lipstick form. Without a doubt there will be a lipstick to suit everybody within their collection. I will definitely be putting a few of their lippy's on my Christmas list this year, I think they make the best stocking fillers. 

Whilst thinking about ideal gifts for this post, I thought what not a better present than a Yankee candle, right? Well, that's what I thought until I came across their aromatherapy range. Honestly, I think I might be buying this as a gift for myself at this rate. Probably the most 'Christmasy' related gift I've chosen but absolutely perfect nevertheless. I'm actually pleasantly surprised at the price tag as I usually find Yankee products to be quite over-priced. I don't think you could go wrong with buying this as a gift but then perhaps I'm biased of the fact it includes my two favourite scents. 

Speaking of buying gifts for yourself, here's one I bought for myself sometime last year. After seeing relentless pictures of it all over tumblr, I cracked and ordered. I won't go into too much detail of my love for this book but this post borderlines it if you are interested. Without a doubt it would make the loveliest gift and again at the most loveliest price (I'm full of these, aren't I?) it leaves budget over to buy some more. In fact with how inexpensive my gift choices have been, you could probably afford to buy them all, or maybe justify buying them for yourself at some point. Who knows?

So, that concludes my gift ideas! If you do decide to take part, I'd love it if you'd link me so I can take a look. Hurry though, the closing date for entries is the 9th November 2012!
