Hunkemoller have released the new Doutzen Kroes sportswear range and I got my hands on one of their hoodies.

I went for the HKMX hooded sweater doutzen in pink which was £37. I went for a medium as I wanted it baggy and I am so impressed with it. I love love love the ribbon detail on the hood. The whole of the inside of the hood is the same colour and material as the ribbon, so it is so soft and luxurious. The inside of the rest of the hoodie is really soft and it is so comfortable.

Being so soft, it would be ideal to put on over a sports bra, you wouldn’t need to worry about wearing a t shirt or anything as it feels really nice against your skin.

Have you bought anything from this website before? I have reviewed a pair of their PJs before.

I previously tried out a few dresses from Femmeluxe, you can find my review here. I was so impressed with the price and quality of them I decided to look and see what other items they had that took my fancy.

This time I picked up a jumper and a few two piece loungewear/exercise sets. 

Black With White Stripe Off Shoulder Loungewear Set – Shani

£16.99

This one I went for a S/M which is an 8/10. This set feels very soft and feels really comfortable. The trousers fit me really well round the wait. The top is designed to be worn on one shoulder but I prefer to wear it more like a wide neck and on both but you have the option of one shoulder if you prefer. 

What I like most about the sets is you could mix and match if you wanted. I think the dusky pink trousers would look good with the black and white top.

I think to get two items of clothing for this price is so good. You can wear them together or wear them with anything else really. The trousers would look good with any hoodie/jumper or top really, they don’t necessarily have to be worn as the set.

I love loungewear as it is great to wear around the house, we have gym equipment at home which we use so its ideal t them wear to work out in too.

Khaki Crop Jumper Loungewear Set – Deanna

£19.99

This one I went for a S/M which is an 8/10. This set is the same material at the black and white one so it also feels very soft. The size I went for fits very well and it it very comfortable. If I didn’t want to wear a cropped top then i would wear the trousers with something else. The set is ideal if you want to wear sportswear but look a bit nicer if you know what I mean. 

The trousers have an elasticated waist so I would say the small/medium would fit a size 6-10 which is better than having to pick just one size as I am usually in between an 8 and a 10.

Dusky Pink With White Stripe Lounge Wear Set – Lexi

£18.99

This one I went for a 10 as it came in individual sizes. I prefer to go to a 10 than an 8 if there is a choice as I am often between sizes and an 8 can often be slightly tight, especially in a top. The top fits perfect and the trousers are slightly loose, but not too noticeable. The material on the set is slightly different from the two I meantime above, it doesn’t feel as soft and feels a but more like a dress material, it is still really comfortable just feels slightly thicker than the other sets.

Grey Knitted Oversized Polo Neck Jumper – Polly

£19.99

This one I went for a S/M which is an 8/10 and it fits perfectly. It would look great with jeans or leggings as pictured. I love how you can fold down the neck to suit. It is quite thick but not too thick that you would get crazy hot in it. It is ideal for this time of year when you want to be warm but don’t want too many layers on as you get too hot when the heating kicks in!

******************************************************

As I mentioned in my previous review, the prices are so reasonable too and considering how cheap they are, they are really great quality. They really do have choices suited for everyone.

The delivery was super quick too which is great, as I hate having to wait ages for online orders to turn up!

Have you tried anything from Femme Luxe?

Sarah x

I don’t often dress up, I am usually at home in my pjs or if I go out I wear black jeans and a nice top.

I decided I wanted to make more of an effort as I had a few events coming up that I wanted to look a bit more glamorous for, so I got my hands on a few bits from Femme Luxe.

Femme Luxe is a website that I had seen a lot about on Twitter and Instagram and everyone seemed to comment on how cheap the dresses were and what good quality they were so I decided it was worth checking out.

Femme Luxe Femme Luxe

Black Bandeau Split Leg Ruched Maxi Dress £22.99

I ordered this in a size 8, I usually wear a 10 in clothes but I like mine baggy, so opted for an 8 as these type of dresses are meant to be fitted and being strapless I don’t want it slipping down! It fits perfectly and I love the split down the leg. The length is perfect too and it looks good with flat shoes or heels.

I was really impressed with the feel of the dress, the material was soft and stretchy. I think this would look beautiful in red too, may clash with my green hair haha so maybe might get one when I change my hair!

Femme Luxe Femme Luxe

Black One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress £19.99

As with the dress above, I went for this in a size 8. It fits really well and is similar to the material of the other dress. It is quite tight and stretchy so I was unsure how it would look once on and I worried my underwear would show but I just put on plain knickers and a strapless bra and you couldn’t even see underwear lines or anything through the dress, really impressed!

Femme Luxe Femme Luxe

Grey Knit Block Colour Jumper Dress £13.99

I got this in a small/medium which is an 8/10 and I love the style of it. It is more casual and on the baggy side so is a bit more of my style. I liked it so much I got it in the grey and the black. They also did it in pink.

It is knitted and is such great quality for the price, you oils normally pay a lot more for something like this. It is so cosy and you can wear it with bare legs or with leggings/tights if it was really cold.

This knitted dress would also look great with any shoe options, little dolly shoes, boots, or even knee high boots!

Femme Luxe

Black Knit Block Colour Jumper Dress £13.99

This is the same as the dress above, just in a different colour. I really like the contrasting sleeves and neck.

I don’t usually opt of knitted dresses and jumpers as they are often quite itchy but these are really soft and comfy.

The thing I like most about this website is that they have so many choices and something for everyone. I’m not a massive fan of tight revealing dresses and prefer to be covered up a bit but everyone has their own taste and they have such a wide variety of styles.

The prices are so reasonable too and considering how cheap they are, they are really great quality. I am always sceptical about ordering clothes online as you can’t feel them to know the quality but these are so good and for the quality I would have expected them to be more expensive!

The delivery turned up in only a couple of days and they were all packaged individually. I liked one of them so much I ordered it in two different colours! Most of the dresses had multiple colour options. I don’t tend to wear anything bright or it clashes worth my hair so black and grey are a great option.

Which one is your fave?

Sarah x

Acdria jewellery is all inspired by nature. It is designed and handmade in England. The pieces I am sharing with you today are from the planets range. I personally love anything designed around stars, planets the galaxy etc so this whole range really caught my eye. They also have a beautiful range of butterfly designs which I think is absolutely stunning.

Earth necklace

Jupiter necklace

Moon necklace

Saturn necklace

They are so reasonably priced at £15 each and you can get the cutest earrings to match too. I love how they can look different depending on the background, if they are on your bare skin or if they are on a black t shirt or white t shirt. When you look up close you see the true beauty of each piece.

Do you like jewellery things like this?

The company also does bespoke things too if you had something in mind!

I have put together a few ideas for Christmas gifts this year in the following categories: Clothing, Homeware and Entertainment

CLOTHING

Dobell shirt

£24.99

Dobell are such a good menswear brand. Their products are high quality but at an affordable price. My husband has had quite a few products from them before including a suit and bow tie and a set of cuff links. This shirt is a great price considering the quality of it. I love the stripe design and this would be great for any man in your life whether they are your partner/dad/son/brother or a friend. Their clothing is true to size.

*******************************************************************

Statement made necklace

Pricing depends on product/personalisation.

Statement made jewellery have some really beautiful pieces. They can add personalistion to their products, I have my husbands initial N on this necklace. They are such great quality at an affordable price and they really do have something for everyone.  The also have just released a range of Christmas ornaments.

*******************************************************************

B.Tempted knickers

From £8 depending on colour/style

I personally love new pjs or underwear for Christmas. Knicker Locker have such a fab range of both, as well as swimwear and things for men. These particular knickers are by the brand B.Tempted and they are so soft and comfortable. Often lace underwear can be slightly uncomfortable but these ones are so soft! The fit is good and I opted for a Small, I am a UK 8/10 usually.

*******************************************************************

HOMEWARE

Amphora Aromatics Mulled pear candle

£9.50

This time of year, I love candles. Amphora Aromatics have a beautiful mulled pear and spices candle. I have previously mentioned their Lavender one which is one of my favourite candles. Each candle can burn for up to 40 hours which is great if you only light it for half an hour at a time. The scent is quite strong but not too overpowering and the mulled pear really reminds me of Christmas. I like the neutral colour of the jar meaning it can look good in any room, no matter the decor.

*******************************************************************

Personalised baubles

£7.99 each

I love personalised presents, I think it is a great way to show someone you have really thought about a gift. This year we bought our first Christmas tree, we previously had my parents old one and some of their decorations but we decided it was time to get our own and all new decorations. I wanted some special baubles to get for my husband. Funky Pigeon have so many personalised items but I opted for the photo baubles where you can upload any photo you wish and add words to them so of course, I got ones of of cats! They are such great quality and will look great on the tree.

*******************************************************************

Personalised stocking tree decoration

£16.50

Another great addition to a tree is a personalised decorated stocking. I am really impressed with the quality of this and love how cute the little heads are and how neatly our names are written. You can get lots of decorations from Made with love and sparkle and you can personalise them with peoples name, whether it is for a couple, a whole family or if you want your pets names on! I wanted to just have it for Nick and myself. I think it looks super cute and would be a great gift for anyone especially if it was a first christmas in a new home or with a new member of the family etc.

*******************************************************************

Warmies heatable soft toy

£14.99

Hot Water Bottle shop not only supply a massive range of standard hot water bottle covers, they also supply these cute heatabale soft toys. You put them in the microwave for two minutes to heat them up and then they are so warm and smell amazing as they have lavender in. This is perfect for adults or children to cuddle with or take to bed in the winter. In the summer you can even out it in the freezer! Lavender is my favourite scent and is so calming so this is ideal if you aren’t feeling very well to use instead of a hot water bottle.

*******************************************************************

Entertainment

Pitch Perfect: 3-Movie Boxset

You can get some great boxsets on Amazon from £6, some of the most popular ones are:

Movie boxsets:
>  *   Fast & Furious 8-Film Collection (DVD £24.99, Amazon)
>  *   Transformers: 5-Movie Collection (DVD £19.34, Amazon)
>  *   Pitch Perfect: 3-Movie Boxset (DVD £6.99, Blu-ray £18.00, Amazon)
>  *   Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures (Blu-ray £17.99, Amazon)
>  *   Fifty Shades: 3-Movie Boxset (DVD £11.99, Blu-ray £14.99, Amazon)
>  *   The Godfather Trilogy: The Coppola Restoration (Blu-ray £14.99, Amazon)

I personally love pitch perfect and plan to spend a Sunday binge watching all three films in a row. It is great value to buy DVDs as a box set if you want to watch more than one of them.

*******************************************************************

Fanatic football gift box

£45

Fanatic create these fab football gift boxes. You can select the box depending on what team you support and you can select if it is for an adult or child. They will also ask your clothing size. I received a sample box to review but if you were to buy one you would receive 5/6 items based on the selected team. My box featured a hat, bottle opener and socks. These are the kind of things they would feature, as well as tshirts, a mug, a calendar and various other products. I think this would be a great gift for a football fan and they have a great range of teams on there. I had to pick Arsenal obviously 🙂

*******************************************************************

I hope I have given you some ideas 🙂
