Happy New Year to you all! I hope you've had a great Christmas and New Year and are well fed and rested. I've managed to get out a few times and shop the sales, but with it at it's peak, I tend to get to overwhelmed by the mess in most shops so I am picky as to what shops I spend time in. Thank goodness for Gap and their tidy store! On Boxing Day they had an additional 20% off online, not sure what stopped me but I'm glad I didn't check out. Their sale in store is so much better, be warned!

I found some wet look black jeans for £14.99 (£32.99 online here) they feel amazing on and suck in your legs if you know what I mean! Even my 6 year old loved them. Then there was the cape. Mixed feelings from the family as I walked out the changing room, husband didn't get it at all, 6 year old pulled a face, 1 year old had given up and was asleep. Maybe it was the mood the jeans had put me in but I loved it. And I will hold my hands up now, there is acrylic in the mix…….I am trying not to be too hung up on fabrics. How long that will last I have no idea, maybe after it bobbles with a few washes I will revert back to my old obsessive ways but at £24.99 I grabbed it. It is currently £39.99 online here.

No doubt there will be another sales post, but for now my top tip is get to a Gap. After a bit of a disastrous trip to Westfield White City (they closed the car park!) we ended up popping along as you do to the Stratford one instead. We got there a lot later than planned so we hit the crowds, it was heaving and the stores a mess. It was my first visit there and I did like it, but I prefer White City. Now this is going to sound odd but I like my shopping centres to have a flow and easy shopping route. White City is pretty much like a square doughnut (in my head…) and I can navigate it easily. Stratford seemed like an arch shape with a bit outside you had to walk through if you wanted to get back to the start without going back on yourself. I'm stopping there before I sound like a bit of a freak when it comes to shopping centres!

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all my loyal readers. I've spent more time than ever on my blog this year and I feel it's really grown along with my styling business. Thank you to everyone who has helped and supported me. I hope next year comes with more growth and readers.
