Some days ago I stumbled upon this fabulous Debenham's competition on Natasha's blog and couldn't hold myself back from excitement! The chance of winning £500 to spend on Debenham's alone made me dream of so many wishlists and outfits! 

Are you excited too? Then all you have to do is to create two outfits with pieces from Debenham's; a cozy, winter warmer look for the cold days and an elegant look for a party occasion.

For my winter warmer look I pictured myself in Oxford Street on a rainy day!
What better to wear than a classic grey montgomery coat, a same colour sweater and a pair of skinny jeans to keep me warm and comfortable while I do my shopping! I would finish the look with a pair of comfortable ankle boots, a knitted scarf wrapped around my neck and a watch to check the time so as not miss the night date with my girlfriends...

..speaking of which, on a night out in Soho (Aqua bar preferably), 
I would wear a chic blue royal dress with lace details and a pair of golden high heels 
to make a girly and at the same time timeless look.
Since the dress has so much beauty on it, I wouldn't over make it with the accessories;
a simple pair of pearl earrings and a clutch bag would be just perfect!
Of course the lingerie plays a major role when wearing 
a dress like this, so I would make sure to get the right bra (for all occasions).
Last but not the least, I would keep a simple make up
with a deep red lipstick, a natural eye palette and a low chignon hairstyle.

What do you think? Would you wear these two looks for a casual day and a night out?
Let me know which one is your favourite!

P.S: I would like to thank Debenhams, Natasha and Victoria for the lovely opportunity. Hope you enjoyed my entry!

Decorating ideas // Colourful curtains

Last night,
mum and my sister had a serious discussion
about a room renovation, 
-or to be more precise- room redecoration.
The idea is that since we do not live in my parents house anymore,
we could change the decoration of our childhood room 
and turn it into a guest room!

We all three agreed to do our search
in magazines, books and through the internet
and end up with individual plans.
You think what I am thinking right?
Certainly that means that I have to come up with a plan and various ideas
that would please both my mum and sister,
so as to step into action as soon as possible.

Colourful curtains, I said out loud!
I mean think of it, if you add colourful curtains 
in any room
they can instantly turn in into the most interesting room of the house!

Depending on your personal style,
there are many different options to stick with.
For instance, floral curtains match perfectly in a bedroom with pink walls
and it is the ideal touch for a romantic Edwardian look.

We eventually agreed to buy striped mint or lavender colour curtains for our room
and do the redecoration on May.
I am so excited, I cannot wait to share the 'before' and 'after' pictures with you!
It's going to be amazing :)


What do you think of colourful curtains, yes or no?
