So how was your first week back at work?
Mine was insane.
Before I dive back into the madness this morning I’m taking 20 minutes out with Aimee Song’s fabulous book, Capture Your Style.

If you enjoy Instagram and if you want to up your IG game, you will love this.
Aimee who is undeniably one of the stars of Instagram has written a wonderful book all about defining your style, curating your Insta-grid and basically being fabulous! Tips from how to take the best images with your iPhone, to editing, to how you present and filter your images, all in an absolutely beautiful and easy to digest format.
I really love it!

I gave this as a Christmas gift to some of my favorite peeps, and everyone has been super excited about it. If you are not familiar with Aimee Song have a quick look at her amazing Insta feed @songofstyle

I’ve been talking forever in here about buying a Nespresso machine.
I’ve had a regular cappucino/espresso machine for years and have loved it, but I have really, really wanted a Nespresso. And this was the year!
I had planned on a big, chic, chrome affair, but in the end ordered a simple Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker, Black
I LOVE it!!!
My black machine came in a dark grey/black and doesn’t photograph well, but once I figure it out I will no doubt blog about it with pictures of my own.

It makes waking up each day worthwhile!

The chrome one I originally wanted was the Nespresso VertuoLine Coffee and Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother, Black. Chic, non?

Anyway, I now have a quick 20 minutes to enjoy a coffee and get some insta-inspo before I head out to work.

Enjoy your Friday!

Over the holidays I absolutely love to curl up with a great book.
My regular life is so hectic, sometimes working 7 days per week for weeks on end. (at the time of writing this post I have been working 48 days straight)
Just the idea of days off, a couch, and some great books borderline makes me giddy!

One of my favorite things is to spend time with fashion based coffee table books, getting inspired and just loving the art form.

To date my favorites have been The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisted Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty (Metropolitan Museum of Art), and Carine Roitfeld:  Irreverent

This year my gift list is being populated with gorgeous fashion and lifestyle books, written by some of the biggest bloggers and social media presences in the fashion arena.
These make sensational gifts for girls who love fashion, business gifts, and gifts for yourself! 
I’ve had trouble finding them in bookstores, so have linked each of them to Amazon for you.
