THE TEDDY BEAR COAT OF DREAMS

27/10/2016
This is another one of those posts where there is absolutely no point to it whatsoever, other than to tell you about a babe’in coat I picked up from Bicester – i.e my new number 1 bae for life – and say a little goodbye before I head off to Dubai.

Yep, that’s right, I head off to Dubai today – and as I was writing this 2 days ago I had no idea what airport I’m going from or time of flight, yay for press trips that make anxious annie bloggers even more on edge [insert cry laughter/”no but seriously, all the nervy vibes” emoji here]. But either way, I’m excited. Like, yes I am so nervous I could quite possibly vom all over a group of people I’ve never met before when I get to the airport, but somewhere hiding beneath the nerves is a huge amount of excitement, and anticipation, and exhilaration at the fact that over the next 7 days, I am going to be doing things that I never ever dreamed of (hot air ballooning and sleeping in a dessert I’m looking at you), I’m going to be so damn far out of my comfort zone, and I’m going to do it all a very long way from home. 

And even though I’m all nervy and anxious and can we just get on the plane now please and thank you, it’s these kind of experiences that tend to be the life changing ones. It these kind of experiences that help show you who you really are.

Lol, like, so much effing lol at getting all Oprah Winfrey on you. Let’s talk teddy bear coats to put me back in my box.

 Coat – Maje (out of stock but similar here) / Trousers – Dorothy Perkins (old but similar here) / Trainers – Converse / Bag – Jacques Vert

So this coat then. Basically, I was invited on the loveliest press event ever by the babes at Bicester to celebrate Wool Week – you can check out their wool collection pop up until Jan 2017 fyi – and to have a little browse around the shops. You see, Bicester is my kinda place. It’s high end, it’s luxurious, but it’s at a discounted price [insert hallelujah emoji here] and I love that, I love that it makes designer labels more accessible for those of us who didn’t marry millionaires or have rich af parents can’t justify spending outrageous amounts on designer clothing.

So here’s how the story goes. I walked around the shops with Carly, Reem and Carrie, I saw lots of things I liked, but nothing I absolutely loved.

Until I went into Maje.

And saw this coat.

The rest is history.

But seriously, I’m not sure I’ve ever fallen in love with an item of clothing so much and so quickly. As soon as I tried it on I just had to have this teddy bear style, beautifully soft, warm and cosy babe, and I’ve not regretted it ever since picking it up. I really am an out and out Primark girl but this coat taught me that designer investment pieces can totally make your wardrobe.

The other “love you bae” piece in this post is this gorgeous Elie Beaumont Oxford large watch which has quickly slotted in to my wardrobe as an everyday piece. There’s just something so classic about the black leather strap and rose gold face that it really does just go with every outfit. It’s also a lot more affordable than other very similar styles so I cannot recommend this brand – they have so many other stunning colours – and watch, enough.

Finishing off the look with a bag that I just refuse not to use now. It’s from Jacques Vert and it’s kinda like the Chloe Drew’s older, more sophisticated sister. Beautifully well made and the perfect size for all of my blogging essentials. Cant. Do. Without. 
And basically that’s it, right now I’m having a major breakdown minor panic because I’m packing, planning content with deadlines and generally having the travel with stranger stress. Life is stressful though right now. Like, the most stressful it’s ever been. But it’s oh so good right now and I cannot wait to discover more of Dubai, a place I completely lost my heart to two years ago!

Anyway, I’d love to know if you’ve been to Bicester lately and picked up any bargains? Do you have any winter sun trips coming up? I always love hearing your thoughts!

As always, thanks so much for reading!

      DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

      It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of generalspelltemple@gmail.com finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.

How exciting you're headed to Dubai as well, I can completely understand why you'd feel anxious in the lead-up with so many new experiences ahead and not knowing specific flight times, however I can imagine once you're there it's going to be the most incredible trip ever, ever, ever ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Ahhhh enjoy Dubai! It's going to be so epic and major, all that prior flying and stranger anxiety will be soon forgotten! I'm a huge fan of teddy bear fabric, though I've never actually invested in it yet. I can never seem to find it when I'm wanting it. That Maje jacket is all kinds of awesome, and it looks super snuggley too.

  31. I am MRS COLLINS, from CANADA, I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my Husband return back to me, and today with all due respect i want to thank DR AKHERE for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until i loosed my husband, I required help until i found a great spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my husband back in two days after the spell has been cast. Three days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my husband who has not called me for past 6 months now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. DR AKHERE released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the most happiest woman on earth and me and my husband is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that`s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe.

  33. Life has been so miserable after my girlfriend broke up with me 6 months ago. I never thought she could hurt me just like that then i realized how much i loved my girlfriend when she ended our relationship and i had to look for options to make sure i get her back to myself for i wasn't living fine anymore. I was directed to a Spell Doctor known as Lord Doctor Zakuza by my cousin who he claimed he helped him in winning a lottery. I made contact with the Doctor and i was surprised and amazed when my girlfriend came back to me with her knees on the floor pleading to me for forgiveness to take her back as my lover. I thought i was dreaming because all this happened just within 48 hours and it happened as the spell Doctor as said. For that wonderful encounter with this man, i took a decision on my path that i will let the world know about Lord Doctor Zakuza for he's able and capable to solve any problems.
