New Gym Wear by @NextOfficial

Happy Friday readers! For this weeks Friday fashion post, I just had to share my new gym wear by @NextOfficial, Its all high-quality, beautiful, and completely affordable. Now, I’d love to claim otherwise, but on a day to day basis, I’m pretty much the least glamourous person on the planet, and prefer to just chuck on my gym clothes first thing in the morning when I get up at 6.30am, just so that I’m good-to-go whenever the gym or run window presents itself throughout my day of working from home. And if it doesn’t present itself? Well I just steel it anyway…

Festive Party Wear With Great Plains

Great plaines white coat

Now I don’t know about you, But as I approach my 37th Christmas, I’m a bit board of traditional festive party wear. I’ve worn all the little black sparkly, shimmering dresses, and the red spangled tops a girl can muster; I’ve procured more sets of matching bejewelled clutch bags and twinkling shoes than should be legal, and over the years I’ve curated a monstrous collection of faux fur collared coats … Nowadays, I just sort of crave edgier things I suppose. Perhaps this is what happens when people approach their mid-life crisis? Y’know what I mean – as we approach our 40’s we have a tendency…

My La Redoute Black Friday 40% Off Wishlist

Picture tonight’s evening scene if you will – Everyone has had dinner; all homework and reading is done, and the kitchen is tidy(ish). Finally, its time for me to sit down next to the fire with my Chai Latte when it hits me: The email to change the course of anyone’s evening – 40% EVERYTHING at La Redoute. Oh Hell!!! The inevitably quick and excitable shop was promptly followed by this blog, hastily cobbled together for the purposes of public service –  I know most of you will know about this amazing offer, but my concern is that some of…

The Best Hair Appointment Ever: Hair Filler @ Daniel Hersheson

Hair filler Daniel Hersheson before and after picture

Yesterday I visited the Daniel Hersheson salon on the 4th floor of Harvey Nichols, and honestly, it was one of the best and most satisfying hairdressing appointments OF MY LIFE. I went in with a technically dodgy haircut, and came out with an entirely re-booted barnet, all thanks to a pioneering ‘Hair filler’ treatment, followed by the most considered hair cut and finish I think I’ve ever experienced …   Allow me to give you a little hair history: Guys, I’ve had a string of awful and unflattering haircuts, and have been left with what felt like virtually no hair what-so-ever; terrible layers (which I…

Easy Smart From Hush Homewear & Topshop

Granny-chic shoes. Your thang? It wasn’t mine … until I walked past these beauts – Now lets look at their credentials, shall we: Animal print? Check. Velvet? Check. Metallic block heel? Check. Khaki representation? Yes check. Guys, these shoes have every ‘on-trend’ detail for this season crammed into one design. Its all here; they are literally ticking all of the trendy little boxes. And for that reason, they came home with me. (Because I am without a shadow of a doubt, the biggest fashion victim ever and If Instagram tells me to wear old lady shoes made from velvety animal print,…

FridayStylefinder: The Pinafore Dress and Weekend Picks.

Hello! And a very happy Friday to you all 🙂 Now then. This week I want to share with you one of my wardrobes new firm favourites. As in, Its my favourite, not my actual wardrobes …. although I’m pretty sure that if those shelves and cubbyholes could talk, they would definitely congratulate me on my purchase and throw a party to welcome this little baby in. Check it: I give you – THE PINAFORE! Paired with my current favourite colour combo: Grey and Burgundy (see last fashion post for more on this) And not forgetting the all important shape-streamlining magicality of…

FridayStylefinder: New Season updates – Burgundy with denim

With yesterday being the first official day of Autumn, I say its time to think coats. Lovely, lovely coats. And just because its not exactly freezing yet (Hurry up, weather … I want to light the fire) I thought I would find a really cool pair of trainers too. Its too soon for boots … One key colour trend that’s everywhere right now, is that of deep, spicy, rich wine tones, matched beautifully with (almost randomly) softer pale blue or grey. I’m really chuffed about that actually, as burgundy and pale blue has always been one of my favourite colour marriages,…

FridayStylefinder: 1 Top. 3 Outfits.

  This week we have one new season top (Animal Print from Zara- £24.99) and I’m showing it with 3 different outfits. The principle being that if you build up a few really good base items over time – in this case a black pencil skirt, and a good pair of black and white jeans, and a pair of neutral heels – then you can update your new season wardrobe with just one item as and when its time for a little treat. You can afford to be brave with this one item too, because its just an accenting piece. So…

New Week. New Shoes.

Well hello there. Long time no see! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer, I know I have. And its been a busy one alright – Hence, no blogging … But I’d just like to say a very big heartfelt thanks to everyone who has messaged and emailed to say that they have missed ZmG posts each week – I was really happy to know that people enjoy reading it, much less actually noticed its absence! Thanks guys. I made a conscious effort before my four children broke up from school to leave my laptop well alone during the summer holidays, so that I could…

FridayStylefinder: Tailored Wide-Leg Trouser from Karen Millen

Happy Friday everyone! apologies for this being a little late in the working day … I got a bit held up earlier! Anyhoo … Trousers, guys. Bright red ones. Big, massive, wide-legged things of 90’s-esque beauty from Karen Millen. Who loves them? God I do! … they may well be a little ‘out there’ for everyone’s tastes, but for me, I think they are fabulous. I know, I do need to have them taken up, but what can I say, I’m a shorty. They have only just arrived in the post but I still wanted to show them to you… However, that…
