Faux fur is really having a moment this season and it’s our favourite way to keep snuggly and warm. Beside the fact that real fur is horrendously cruel and unethical there is really no place for it now that the fake stuff is so good! You don’t have to go high end either to get that super soft fabric any more as the high street are doing a great selection.

As we head in to December this weekend it’s time to start thinking about Christmas shopping. We would love to be the super organised kind of women that get everything wrapped up months ahead of schedule but alas that’s just not us. We do however make mental notes of our favourite pieces as and when we spot them so below is our round up of some of our favourite gift ideas
As the season to party approaches, you need to get ready to bare your feet. Now I don’t know about you but I’ve always struggled with the dry skin on the heels of my feet. I don’t want to give you a bad impression (although you will see this later in a before pic, sorry about that) as I do keep on top of them with pedicures and a pumice stone
This season is all about checks. Be it houndstooth, gingham, plaid or tartan they’re all going to score you serious fashion points and are so easy to wear. For the more sartorially brave you can mix and match them or like Wendy and I just use them to give a new season twist to your every day basics.
.Mc Queen explores the life of British fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who started his career in his teens. McQueen rose to fame in London of the 1990s, and by the turn of the millennium, became recognised as one of the most contemporary fashion designers of his day. Tragically he took his own life in 2010. Film and video might be the only medium that can capture the excitement of what McQueen was doing at the apex of his career, because it was so very cinematic.
If you’re looking for a good heart warming series amongst all the crime/horror that Netflix has on offer then this one’s for you. Aging acting coach Sandy Kominsky isn't ready to ride off into the sunset just yet. The once-famous Kominsky and his longtime agent, Norman Newlander, keep each other laughing as they tackle the curveballs that life throws at them while navigating their later years in Los Angeles, a city that values youth and beauty.
The grim and often disturbing The Sinner is more about why did they do it rather than who did it. In Season 2 of the drama series, Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) goes back to his small hometown to investigate the murder of a couple by their 11-year-old son. As he tries to figure out why the boy would commit such a crime, it becomes clear that the town is hiding some very dark secrets that people will do anything in their power to protect. This series will definitely get you in to hibernation mode.
