**These items were gifted to me, but all opinions on my page are honest**
Hey all! The team at Astrid & Miyu were kind enough to gift me a few pieces of my choice from their webpage. Now you know how much I love minimal pieces, so this was a fat kid in a candy shop type of experience for me.
So I opted for the pieces above, my favourite has got to be the Skull ring! I am such a sucker for skulls, although my love doesn't go down too well with my Mum who threatens to throw away all of my skull treasures! Normally skull jewellery pieces are quite in your face, hardcore and rather aggressive but this one, is so minimal and subtle and it's super timeless. I can already sense that it's going to take a lot to get this ring off my finger.
I wear a lot of gold jewellery, and the other two pieces just fit into my jewellery-drobe. The bracelet I'm wearing features a "H" initial, which would make the perfect personal gift for someone, as well as the Zodiak stone pieces! The ring is super simple and elegant, and it just adds that minimal vibe to an outfit.
I was mega pleased with the items I'd received, and with Christmas looming around the corner. They would make the perfect fit for a Christmas stocking gift.
What do you guys think of the pieces?

What screams party more than sequins? Other than a banging headache the day after or feet that look like they've climbed Ben Nevis barefoot the night before. I've teamed up with misguided again to bring you another party look, I always run to Missguided whenever I need a glam outfit because it's just a super party shop destination.
I am still that young girl at heart that loves her sequins and glitter, and the minute I saw this skirt I just envisioned disco lights going and a bit of Jacko' playing in the back. It's perfect for that Christmas party work do, thrown on with a slubby tee to give you that, "I didn't really try hard at all" look. More of a, 'I just threw this on" kind of vibe.
I have been doing a whole load of party posts recently, and I'm sure it's probably taken you all by surprise but, it's that season where even chicks like me go to the ball, and at £34.99 who needs a fairy godmother?

So I've teamed up with the amazing Missguided to bring you a party outfit, and in true cocobeautea style. I chose an all black look, and opted for this skirt and top for a simple but put together look. I have literally fallen in love with this skirt (did you ever think you'd hear that sentence coming from me?!) but I have worn this in the day with a waistcoat over it, and in the evening so it's perfect for those jam packed days when you need to hit the party straight after work.
For a girl like myself who likes her things there and then, the delivery was bang on. It arrived the next day, which works perfectly for me because I am always getting my party gear at the last minute.

Now you all know me and my relationship with dresses, we're not the best of friends to say the least. However as I was scouring through the Urban Outfitters party wear page, my eyes were immediately drawn to this lace dress by Free People and I just needed it on my rail and with the flurry of Christmas and general parties that have popped up, I need options.
Being that I'm more of an, "lets eat out" rather than a "turnt up" kinda chick, I would throw an oversized knit on this dress just to add that more effortless day-night look, also guys it's freezing outside, I need warmth. Not to mention, the dipped lace detailing at the bottom of the dress is gorgeous and it would be a waste not to showcase that!
The dress in this post sold out just after I purchased it, so I've linked some similar pieces for you guys!
To celebrate the festive party season, Urban Outfitters are running a grand competition. Upload your snaps of what you and your friends would wear on a night out with the hashtag #UONIGHTOWLS and tag @uoeurope and you could win a customised party pack and £250 to spend at UO! Ka-Ching!?
Now go and get snapping, I want to see those party outfits!
