Five things you need to own NOW

October is breast cancer awareness month, so in its honour we’re thinking pink on this week’s Gimme 5.

the coat

‘I only popped in for some milk …. ‘. Oh Tesco you know us so well. This bouclé bargain from Florence and Fred is delightful and you’ll be happy to know that we bought it (as well as the milk).

Coat, €40,

the sweater

Taking stripes to the next level, this sweater from Penneys is all kind of fun.

the skirt

You thought that the pleated midi had gone away did you? Well its still enduring the seasons, and this year its made of metallic.

the skincare

Elemis pro collagen marine cream has been long inducted into the beauty Hall of Fame. It’s their bestseller and justifiably so. Since its inception Elemis have added to their Pro Collagen stable and this Pro Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm is their latest offering and it’s gorgeous.  The loveliest thing about it though is that Elemis will donated £25k of the sales to breast cancer care.

the trainers

According to the frowers’ at fashion week, trainers for 2019 are O-V-E-R and that its all about the embellished flats. QUELLE HORROR. Anyway if you, like me are going to studiously ignore that fashion dictact and continue to run about the place in comfort, well carry on and shop! These lovely leopard print trainers will put a pep in your step.
