Beanie, Baby

Pretty glad the beanie trend is kicking off at the moment! Not only do hats keep my bonce warm in this CHRONICALLY cold weather (it's totally unacceptable.) but they're also ideal on days when my hair is all over the place. 

I worked from home today to edit the behind the scenes video footage I captured on the cover shoot for Company Mag's blogger issue! Can't wait for the issue to hit shelves next week, you're gonna love it! 

Here's my chillaxed attire: 

(Beanie - New Look, Bag & Jacket - charity shop, Skinnies - M&S, faux fur collar - H&M , boots- Sarenza*)

If you're in London this weekend, you should go and check out the eBay's pop-up store! For one weekend only, they're hosting a pop-up 'social shopping' experience in Covent Garden. Harnessing the influencing power of social media, eBay Social Shopping will bring together product recommendations from social networks including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with eBay’s own unrivalled search data, to provide a live pulse of what the nations really wants this Christmas with fashion, toys and technology zones.

The reason you may have spotted me using the #ebaysocialshopping hashtag on Instagram is that in the Fashion Zone of the pop-up, you will be able to  shop using our image recognition technology.  A live feed of Instagram images will be displayed on screen.  These images have been taken by some the UKs influential fashion names & bloggers and will include selection of their favourite winter fabric swatches. The eBay fashion app enables you to identify similar items & colour matches for these outfits from the eBay Fashion Gallery!

Anyway what's your chilly weather staple right now? Anyone else becoming surgically attached to beanies and faux fur collars?

  24. Its such as you scan my mind! You appear to understand such a lot concerning this, such as you wrote the book in it or one thing. i believe that you simply may do with some pics to drive the message home to a small degree, however apart from that, this is often nice web log. an excellent scan.
