End of year sales wishlist

Every year ends with massive sales, and this year is no different. I have done a bit of sale shopping, but there are still a lot of things on my wishlist that I’m lusting after. Thankfully sites like Love The Sales helps compiling it all, as you can browse all the sales under one site. So here’s a few things that I’m coveting…


Joka vuosi loppuu järjettömiin alennusmyynteihin, ja tämä vuosi ei ole poikkeus. Olen itsekin sortunut shoppailemaan hiukan, mutta toivelistallani on edelleen paljon juttuja joita himoitsen. Sivustot kuten Love The Sales auttaa tällaisessa tilanteessa, kun voit selata kaikkia aleja yhden sivuston alla. Joten tässäpä jokunen juttu listaltani…

adidas Originals Superstar 80’s sneakers 30% off at Luisavíaroma | ASOS Curve Dress 15% off at ASOS | Apple Macbook Pro 12% off at Currys | boohoo Plus dress 20% off at boohoo | Nike Roshe Run trainers 15% off at Foot Asylum | New Look Curves coat 50% off at New Look

Improved vision

(Suomeksi alla)

As I mentioned in my last post, I had an eye test done and my sight had gotten worse – good times. However Glasses Direct came to my rescue and they sent me this lovely pair of Scout glasses with my new prescription. I didn’t want to go too far from my previous shape, but this pair is a bit rounder and taller than my old, so it is still different. And I don’t know, I think it makes me look more feminine somehow.. maybe it is the fact that tortoiseshell is a softer colour than plain black. Whatever it is, I really do like this pair, and I’m very happy with my choice :).

By the way, Glasses Direct offer an amazing service of Free Home Trial in the UK. You can pick 4 frames to try on and they will send them to you for free, and with a free returns label attached. You can do as many trials as you want, you just need to wait that they get your return back before you can order a new trial. I find this service really helpful, as sometimes even virtual try-on isn’t enough. (Even though Glasses Direct have an amazing one of those as well!) They also have great offers all the time, so I recommend giving them a try!

Kuten mainitsin edellisessä postauksessani, kävin näöntarkastuksessa, ja näköni oli taas huonontunut – parasta. Kuitenkin Glasses Direct tuli avukseni, ja he lähettivät minulle nämä ihanat Scout silmälasit uudella reseptilläni. En halunnut ajatua liian kauas edellisten lasien tyylistä, mutta tämä pari on hiukan pyöreämpi ja korkeampi kuin edelliset lasini, eli sentään vähän erilainen. Ja siis jostain syystä mielestäni näytän jotenkin enemmän naiselliselta tämä kehys kasvoillani.. mutta ehkä se johtuu vaan siitä, että tämä kilpikonna on väriltään pehmeämpi kuin entinen musta. Noh, mikä ikinä onkaan syynä, nämä lasit ovat todella mieluiset, ja olen erittäin tyytyväinen valintaani :).

Glasses Direct muuten toimittaa myös Suomeen, postikulutkin ovat ainoastaan 7,50 puntaa. Lasit vahvuuksilla ovat hyvälaatuisia ja halpoja, ja voit ennen tilaamista kokeilla niitä kasvoillesi virtuaalisesti käyttäen Ditto-palvelua. Heillä on todella usein myös hyviä tarjouksia, kannattaa kokeilla!

Lust List: Panache at Simply Be

(Tämä on yhteistyö Panachen ja Simply Be UK:n kanssa, ja jätin käännöksen tekemättä koska sivusto ei toimita Suomeen. Seuraava postaukseni tulee taas olemaan normaali asupostaus, myös suomeksi!)

I was contacted by Panache who asked what I think of their current collections at Simply Be. I have to admit that I haven’t been looking around for lingerie in ages since well, being unemployed doesn’t really give me a chance to shop much. But I do have a couple of sets from their Sculptresse range, along with some from the Cleo range and I love them all – so of course I wanted to have a look at the new stuff. Below are some of my gorgeous favourites, I absolutely love the colours and patterns, so much prettiness :)!

Panache Fontaine set: bra / briefs | Panache Cleo Marcie set: bra / knickers | Panache Floris set: bra / briefs | Panache Sculptresse Chi Chi set: bra / briefs | Panache Cleo Juna bra | Panache Swimwear Britt set: bikini top / highwaisted bottoms

What do you think of my picks, gorgeous aren’t they? If you fell in love with these, you can buy from Simply Be!

Introducing: Pink Clubwear

(Tämä on yhteistyö amerikkalaisen Pink Clubwearin kanssa, ja tullimaksujen yms takia en viitsi tehdä käännöstä, mutta toivottavasti tykkäätte asusta!)

As a plus-size woman it’s always nice to hear about plus-size brands that are new to you. I was contacted by Pink Clubwear a few weeks ago, and I was intrigued to see what they offer. Pink Clubwear is an online shop that caters both main range and plus-sizes, and like its name says, most of their stock is sexy clubwear. Now, my clubbing years are definitely over, so I wasn’t sure if they had anything suitable for my style. However their plus range has over 300 items, and alongside the clubwear they also have more casual stuff. Their plus-sizes are junior plus: 1X (about US 14 / UK 18 / EU 46), 2X (about US 16 / UK 20 / EU 48) and 3X (about US 18 / UK 22 / EU 50), and they are actually using models that are plus-sized – like you can see on their site.

My favourite item of them all was this striped dress, mostly because it can easily be dressed up or down, and it just spoke to the monochrome lover in me ;). Below you can see how I styled it with a biker jacket and white chunky shoes. My other favourites are for example this jumpsuit and this funky top (would love it in white).

So, especially my US readers.. If you want to give Pink Clubwear a try, you can get 30% off your order with code ‘Hanna30‘ – which is an amazing discount!

Biker jacket / Takki*: M, Junarose | Dress / Mekko*: 3X, Pink Clubwear | Tights / Sukkahousut: 22-26, Yours Clothing | Shoes / Kengät: New Look (similar) | Necklace / Kaulakoru*: Freedom at Topshop (similar) | Lipstick / Huulipuna*: Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet Lipstick in Ravishing Rose
