ON MY RADAR

HIGHLIGHTS OF 2015

A lot can happen in course of a year especially when it comes to the fashion industry (and my life). Trends change, designers enter and exit labels, the 'it' bags come and go-who remembers the chloe drew/faye bag? The bags who took over instagram, Literally! From public speaking to features in Grazia Magazine 2015 definitely marked the standards for 2016 and i wouldn't have it any other way.


2015 has been has been a whirlwind for My Bubba & Me, mostly ups rather than downs (the downs are kept offline i will spare you all my whining, moaning and dramas of my 'private life') i always try my hardest to be consistent on My Bubba & Me- which has been the key to my success this year. People always ask me how i manage to run My Bubba & Me, be a mother, a wife and work part-time- easy: dedication and hard work!

02.15am, It's officially New Year's Eve and i've just finished S2 Ep7 of Gossip Girl, yes i am doing a re-run marathon- why? Because i'm going through a phase of watching series to distract me from social media and mostly instagram, as sad as it is i am an addict! Hate to admit it- but i am a hardcore social media addict. All i seem to think about is blogging- is that normal? Please tell me i'm not the only one who lives and breathes blogging.

Highlights of 2015
  • 2015 was definitely the year of designer handbags for me, i got my 2nd Chanel Bag and treated myself to a Celine Trio and a Chloe Georgia. I feel 2016 is going to bring me another Chanel bag of some sort how do i know that? Because i have a Chanel gift card -that needs to be spent ASAP
  • I did my first ever public speaking about social media. Pure London, How retailers and brands work better with Fashion Bloggers see more here

Red for Christmas?

What does the colour red represent? Red is the colour of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, strength, power, determination as well as passion,desire and love- basically me in jumper. Red is also very emotionally intense- are we still talking about the colour red or about me here. They claim the colour red raises your blood pressure and quickens your heartbeat they are not wrong this jumpers does all the above.

Are you a Denim fanatic? If so, carry on ready if not still keep reading

In the last couple of years denim has become less boring and more daring, the first thing you look for in a pair of jeans is the fit and wash, gone are the days of simple skinny jeans! Denim has got a lot more technical if you like in the last couple of years, fraying hems and subtle rips are creating controversy for fall, the best denim trend.


Frayed hems are quickly becoming a thing, a trend which cannot be ignored obviously. The raw finish just adds an edgy, cool and effortless look- do you not agree?

Go ahead, SHOP the new take on denim below and let your frayed ends show

Looking for gifts for him? Yup me too-

When it comes to the men in our life it can be quite complicated, i never really know what to buy my husband for Christmas especially as the man owns everything he wants, what do you buy a man who has it all? Men are usually not bothered about clothes as much as us girls and from what i know from my brother and husband it's all about the tech, the Apple watch is a must i think -that's what I'll be getting my husband anyway and the aftershave set is just a mandatory gift.

HUSH PUPPIES | SHARE THE WARMTH

Ice cream and a Long walk? Let's go- 

There is no denying i have a thing for suede shoes especially right now as they're currently trending this season, Hush Puppies have hit the nail on the head with their AW15 Share The Warmth collection - stain resistant suede boots: yes please which obviously means no more worrying about the rain and let's face it - it always rains here in the UK so that's a relief it also means you can say goodbye to scuffs and stains.

Comfort and warmth is the first thing on my mind when heading out for a stroll especially for bubba as the last thing i want is him suffering from blisters. Me and bubba decided to match as always in our suede Hush Puppies boots, as we were heading out for lunch after our walk it was the perfect choice of footwear casual but smart, i must say it's a nice change from our trainers.


In store fitting experience

Have you ever heard of 'Fit Left Fit Right' fitting service no neither had i- until i headed down to my nearest Hush Puppies stockist- Klodhoppers, Hove.  

Me and bubba received the loveliest in store experience- i found out i've have actually been buying the wrong size shoes for bubba and of one his feet is bigger than the other (which i actually suffer from too). The lovely lady looking after us explained the purpose of Hush Puppies fitting system 'Fit Left Fit Right' is because most children have different size feet and that's why Hush Puppies specialise in their fitting system to ensure the right fit.

If only i could keep count on how many coats I've acquired this winter it would be great but sadly i can't my obsession with long line coats has got out of hand and i'm not sad about it either.

As much as i know i should be tackling my Christmas shopping i just couldn't resist to treating myself. This Topshop longline coat which is now out of stock has currently got my heart, it literally goes with everything! If i could stick to one style coat this season to keep on trend it would be a long line coat without a doubt it adds an effortless touch to any outfit and i cannot get enough of this oatmeal shade.
