Getting personal with Tesco

First things first, I just want to say a huge thank you to all my readers new and old. It means a lot that you stop by and take a few minutes to see what’s happening in my blogging universe which has been going for about four years now. I’ve explored many places and reviewed hundreds of different products/services, but each time I come to write a blog post there is always something new to say. I try to stick to a similar structure: it’s a personal opinion mixed with some research, humour and of course original photography. This blog post is all about getting personal with Tesco, so keep reading to get the scoop first hand!

Tesco Photo have a rather decent selection of products available for personalisation- perfect if you are ready to start gift shopping soon. As well as your standard photo calendars and books, the range includes personalised photo bags, phone cases and engravings too.

I always make my mum a photo calendar for Christmas each year, and the Tesco Photo online system is so easy to use, just upload, drag and drop!

I also discovered a beautiful range of blank photo albums, so if you’re looking to save money on your Christmas shopping, this is a super way to send a special, handmade gift as albums start from just £3.50.

Having just celebrated Alice’s first birthday, it was only fitting I designed some really personal Thank You cards to send out to our party guests. I chose a photo from my phone, uploaded it and personalised the front and inside with text, leaving space for Alice to do some drawing too. Photo greeting cards start from £2.99, and can be personalised with whatever you’d like to say.

Tesco Photo offer a great selection of photo blocks if you’re tired of getting framed pictures. These are so fun and becoming increasingly popular in my household. Alice just loves studying them and there’s no danger of her ripping the photo out as it’s secure between the glass.

Speaking of Alice, here’s what she got up to while I was busy taking photos of my own for this blog post. Happy as Jack Skellington on Christmas day with a packet of crisps in her cot!

See the whole range for yourself at Tesco Photo, and get personalising some wonderful gifts this Christmas 🙂

A seasonal shift in style

When the leaves start falling and the weather reaches single digits, you know a change is coming for your wardrobe. Whether you’re a smart dresser, a casual babe or somewhere inbetween like me, a new season is a great excuse for a good old look in those drawers to get yourself prepared and warm. Today’s post features several brands which I’ve never blogged about before. A seasonal shift in style is coming your way in three, two, one…

The houndstooth print is a failsafe from September to December, especially when it’s in the form of a darling, high-waisted miniskirt. My collection of Karen Millen cardigans are the perfect length for this look, and no doubt I will be trying them all with this skirt from Unique 21.

My buckle belt is a brand new addition from my sister’s belt biz @e.buckled and this just completes my first seasonal style look.

Look two is a grungy/urban street vibe, and yes the leopard print is out in full force! I’ve paired these lightweight palazzo trousers from Unique 21 with an amazing lace bodysuit from Catwalk Clothing and some black tights to beat the morning chill. The burgundy sketchers add a colourful pop along with a dark lip and some beautiful lashes courtesy of KISS products.

I chose to adorn a suede effect satchel bag to add a bit more swag and a leopard print hair clip to tie the whole getup together.

My final look to honour a seasonal shift in style is more of a night time glam look. I’ve got the same beautiful lace on top but switched the bottom up to a glitzy skirt from Minnie’s Boutique and snakeskin accessories.

Even though my style may change from day to day and season to season, my love of fashion still sticks around. A huge thanks to Catwalk Clothing and Unique 21 for helping bring this blog post to life.
