Outfit: 007 Casino Royale Viewing Party

IMG_3508
A few weeks ago, a perturbing metal case full of goodies was delivered to my house... It came from the lovely people behind the 007 James Bond Fragrances who gave me a kit for a great James Bond, Casino Royale themed night in, to celebrate the release of the 007 For Women Eau De Parfum. With a bottle of Bollinger popped, Casino Royal in the DVD player and 007 cupcakes at our fingertips, I settled in for a night of fun with some friends. Even though I kept it casual, I saw no reason not to dress up with some new threads from Topshop and dress up my living room with streamers and balloons!

The perfume itself is housed in a gorgeous black bottle, with a cool textured design. It looks beautiful on the dressing table and is initially quite a floral scent with undertones of vanilla and musk, which come through with wear. It's a gorgeous scent thats seductive enough for night, whilst also being subtle enough for day wear, also. It comes in 4 sizes which is perfect for anyone wanting to try a small size, right up to a season fan who needs a lasting fix of the amazing scent!

I throughly enjoyed a night in with a Casino Royale on dvd, cupcakes and of course, champagne.... However, I think I most enjoyed the excuse to dress up! I love the white/creme dress paired with the pop of colour in these amazing coral wedges from Topshop- I think I'm obsessed with them!

Thank you to the fab people behind 007 fragrances for sending me the 007 Fragrance for Women and my party kit!

Outfit: Faux Fur in The Royal Crescent

IMG_3184
A few weeks back, I was lucky enough to be given the chance to visit Bath in a Citroen C4 Cactus, and bring my Mum along for the ride. I shared the trip in a post, here, but I promised I would also share with you my outfits for the short time we were there. We were lucky with the weather, and although it was a little chilly (it was early in the year, what can we expect from the UK?) it was blue skies and sun shine all around. The sunnies were out for the first time this year and I was loving it.

We took these photos on our first day in Bath, upon our visit to the famous 'Royal Crescent,' a street famed for its aesthetic, views and opulence, just outside of Bath's city centre. I couldn't help but utilise this as a gorgeous ootd backdrop....

I'm wearing a monochromatic outfit here, keeping it simple and letting the gold jewellery and unique faux fur coat speak for themselves. Whilst the outfit seems simple -and certainly wasn't taxing to put together- the cut outs on the cami top and the mixing of the silky material of the top with the faux fur creates a chic feel. It was comfortable to wander around in and kept me snug!

Travel: Visiting Bath with Citroën C4 Cactus

A few weeks ago, Citroën got in contact with me, asking if I would like a chance to take the Citroën C4 Cactus on a weekend break, anywhere of my choosing, outside of London. I jumped at the chance, as it meant I would be able to visit a city I'd never seen before, whilst also bringing my Mum along for the ride, and giving her a well deserved break! Citroën are also giving you the chance to win a similar weekend getaway with the C4, so stayed tuned till the end of this post to find out how to enter. 

My Mum and I chose Bath to visit, as I heard great things about it, and the lovely Megan had given me a lot of suggestions of things to see and places to visit, whilst we were there. So, with the playlist sorted (my Ipod plugged easily into one of the two USB ports in the C4) and both our names on the insurance, we set out on the drive, determined to make the most of the C4. The car is stylish and incredibly comfortable and my Mum and I had a fabulous time playing around with the gadgets such as the touch screen control panel, which controlled everything from the heating to the music and the GPS, to trying out the cruise control settings. 
Our ride for the weekend, outside our lovely hotel
Above, you can see photos outside the hotel we stayed in -Bailbrook House- including a photo of my Mum and I together. Whilst large, the hotel we stayed in was lovely and we enjoyed a fabulous dinner there before spending a very comfortable night in our room.

We were only in Bath for two days, so we had a jam packed schedule of things we wanted to do and places to see! Fortunately, with the weather bright and sunny and the car at our disposal, we headed into Bath city centre with ease and excitement.
Bath Cathedral
Pulteney Bridge
The Royal Crescent
On the first day we toured the vintage and antique shops Bath had to offer, which we came away from with a pair of earrings for Mum and an antique teacup for me... Oops! Bath has a huge range of shops, but by far my favourites were the antique shops and of course, the tea shops. We had been tipped off by Megan that Bea's Vintage Tearooms was the best place for a refuel and afternoon tea, which both my Mum and I are big fans of. Those of you who follow my Instagram account (HeyAmyJane) will have seen the beautiful cake stand adorned with cakes, scones and finger sandwiches we enjoyed there. 

We saw the gorgeous Royal Crescent, the incredible views of the Pulteney Bridge and were wowed by Baths over all aesthetic. It provided the perfect backdrop for 'OOTDs' (which will be appearing soon on here) and many Instagram posts. With the help of the C4 we crammed a weeks worth of activities into two days, enjoying cocktails in Bath's 'Opium' bar (a cute, underground vintage establishment), seeing all the sites and taking in the culture. We both loved Bath and had a fabulous weekend.
