Topshop loafers with a feminine twist

I love the man tailored look, it is always so classy. Somethimes though, an oxford brogue or a Tod's type loafer can be too manly or old fashioned.
I love these Topshop loafers at £50 becuase they have added a touch of femininty with the bow which you could easily pair with your boyfriends white shirt and a pair of casual trousers without going man tailored overboard. These are my March purchase. April purchase to follow.

H&M home-A new way of shopping

I first saw the H&M home collection in Helsinki this past summer. It was opening night and was not open to the public yet. Their home collection has now been launched in London as well and I went to take a look.
The collection is what you expect from H&M, cheap, colourful and fun. The surprise was the way you shop for the items. The items are displayed on walls and floor units but there are no shelves full of product. There are just one or two pieces displayed with a magnet with a photo and price of the product next to it. I was a little confused at why there were magnets next to the product until I found the metal shopping basket and the wall of all the products in magnet form. It is almost like virtual shopping but in a retail space!
I like that they have done something different to the shopping experience, although after you have browsed through the store you inevitably end up standing in front of the wall of magnets and shopping from there.
One of the best items was this cushion cover for £7.99:

Ho hum, the January blues-New boots will cheer me up!

I haven't posted all month because, well, I just don't feel like it. I actually don't feel like doing anything but lounging on the couch and catching up with the Oscar nominated movies. I am also on a no shopping for myself but food budget this month. It is a test from by boyfriend to see if I can do it. I can't believe it is so difficult, I think I have a problem. But! The shopping detox is almost over and... these are what I will be buying come Feb 1. These leather zip front ankle boots from Topshop at £68 are my perfect move towards spring as I am coming off the chunky lace up boots we have all been wearing this winter. I need some simplicity in my life right now.
I already know what my March footwear and April footwear purchases will be but I will wait to reveal them next week.
