Off Shoulder Love

To me, baring a shoulder or two will always be timeless, classy ways to expose a little of that so erogenous zone, trending or not. However the latter happens to be on the radar right now, and so easy to achieve by playing around with classic shirts and cut out tops. Flaunting in the right upper area is the chicest way to add a bit of umpf to any skirt, trousers or jeans. For the confident DIY, working the scissors and needles on soft loose knitwear you love that hasn’t been worn for a while is also a personal favourite.

For the love of getting your shoulders out there I recently paired up with Net-a-Porter’s – The Edit in a short video to demonstrate and give a few tip on how to bare it for different body types in “The Style Solution” section. Please keep in mind though not to stick to “rules” too much, it can be so much more fun breaking them!
You’ll find all pieces included in the video here.

After having your mailboxes “attacked” by offers this week there can’t be a soul who’s missed out on the global discounted shopping phenomena this cyber weekend, officially kicked off yesterday, lasting until coming Monday midnight.

Speaking for myself it can almost have the opposite effect of wanting to shop at all being being met by flashing offers and promo codes in every direction, but over the years I’ve learned my do’s and don’ts when it comes to sales shopping. Keep focus on getting things on discounts that you’ve been eyeing for a while, refilling your already favourite beauty products, new luxurious bedsheets, look out for furniture and electrical deals, and don’t fall into the trap of stocking up with things you didn’t know you wanted just because the deal sounds too good!

See some of my personal top picks on discount this weekend above and I’ve listed some interesting online shopping sites below, and oh, look out for those shopping codes, not always as easy to find as the flashing discount number. Happy Cyber Weekend everyone!!

At this time of year I’m always in need of a good hand creme and these 2 are new favorites of mine but I can’t pick a winner as I love them both. CLARINS Creme Jeunesse des Main 100ml (£18) and OPI Avoplex 120ml (£17).
