The weather has finally started to brighten up a bit and last weekend, I was able to take Ziva for a little walk without having to change into waterproofs!

On Saturday we went to Manchester house for afternoon tea and cocktails.
They seem to serve a lot of classic treats with an interesting twist which really works for me and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Definitely one of my favourite places in Manchester.
The Manchester sky was sporting its trademark grey colour and I decided to take some pictures by the large windows on the 12th floor.

In the past, I probably never would have thought that pairing a t-shirt with a pleated chiffon maxi skirt was a good idea but recently I’ve been updating the categories I mentally assign clothing to.
I wanted a comfortable but striking outfit to attend a friend’s birthday drinks and this was definitely a hit.
The wedge trainers perfectly marry the contrasting elements and the accessories add the right amount of edge.

In my opinion, any Eustratia item would make a great gift. Each item is hand-crafted, with love and attention to detail and going out of your way to purchase something from an independent designer definitely shows you care more than just picking something up from your nearest superstore.
I understand however, that there are a fair few products on the website at the moment and it might be daunting for new customers to look through them all, so I have picked out a few items I feel would make particularly good Christmas presents.
Open shoulder top
Facing unicorns necklace
Stripey hair bow
“Ruby” gift set.
If you’d like even more ideas to aid your Christmas shopping, Eustratia intern Lindsay, has featured her own sale picks on her blog, Rose tinted glasses.
As you all know I’m quite into latex fashion so I’ve decided to add a new, monthly feature that highlights what kind of latex I’m currently into.
At the moment I love harness details and I’ve been working on getting clearer product pictures of the harness style items I’ve already created for Eustratia.
Here are my top picks:
As a special treat, I’ve also decided to keep the sale on till Sunday to give everyone who gets paid on Friday an extra change at a bargain.
