How well do you know your fashion??

I love little things like this; they really do excite me. I was asked by Farfetch to have a look at a game that they had made. Guess the designer!!! 

Now I have to say, that I played this a few times as I was too excited to read how to play and dived straight in (always read the aim of the game first people) and didn't get the hang of it at first. But when I tried it again, I did a little better. The aim of the game is to guess the designer by the clicking on the picture. The picture will give you clues on the designer and you are given a multiple choice of answers from who you can choose.

So if you know your Chloe to your Wang or your Sophia Websters to your Valentino, have a go and play the game. You will not be disappointed. Top winners are even in for a chance to win vouchers to shop at Farfetcth. What are you waiting for??!!??

The coat!!!

Now that winter is truly upon us, we need to invest in a good item that will keep us warm throughout...the winter coat!!!!

Now I don't know about you but I love a coat. I do not have a particular style of coat...all coats are welcome. I am not one for layers, in fact, I hate layers, so finding a good warm coat that I can wear with just a jumper or long sleeved top is vital. 

I do think, that you should have a coat for different occasions. I have a coat for walking the dogs, work, and just a general everyday one. However this doesn't mean I have to stick to these categories; spice it up...mix it up!!!! A coat needs to be fitted or well suited. People who know me, know that I love to buy things 5 sizes too big for me so that they are baggy, but you cannot and should not do this with a coat. A coat should be fitted or at least comfortable with a thick jumper underneath. After all, you are wearing it in the winter. 

A good coat  can or will complete your style; it could even be the killer statement.

What will 2016 bring?

Wow, I can't believe 2015 has come to an end. To be fair, it was a year of ups and downs, but I guess that counts for everybody right? Let's just say it will not be on my list of favourites that's for sure. However, I cannot stress that it has had some good points too and to that I am grateful. 

So what will 2016 hold??
This is a question I try not to ask myself but obviously wonder about. I just hope it's a good one. I'm not going to say what I would like as I am a little superstitious but also I wouldn't want to bore you with my wishes. Having said that, I can share three things that I hope goes well. I do hope that I am able to continue blogging. I have had it for nearly 2 years now and I have really enjoyed it. As busy as I am with my other job, blogging has been a release and a place where I can talk about the things that interest me (mostly fashion and now fitness and health). 

I also want to continue with my fitness and health. It would be a year in January that I decided to take my fitness to the next level and get a trainer. This would probably be a good time to actually wish that I manage to have the same trainer for the rest of the year; I know I said that I would't wish but when you are on trainer number 3, some wishes are Alex, you are not allowed to budge. I am training more and am really enjoying it. Who knew I would enjoy going to the gym? My next biggest task now is to eat healthy. Although it's hard work I am going to make sure that I eat the correct foods. Although I cannot say goodbye to chocolate, cutting down will definitely be a challenge. I will keep you posted on how this goes. 

I haven't blogged much about my training and so I have a few of those coming up in the New Year so look out for those.

I was flicking through my pictures and favourites of 2015 and there were so many to choose from. But I think this picture sums up my blog. I bought my Olympus Pen as a treat to my blog. So here's to more pictures and style in 2016. 

I wish you all a Happy New Year. Let's make it a good one.
