#MooiEnLiefbyTDP Christmas Gift Guide & GIVE-AWAY

By December 3, 2015 Competitions, General

So Christmas is now right around the corner (22 days people, 22 days!) so I thought it would be a perfect time to share some little gift ideas for those of you who are need that last bit of inspiration in the form of a Christmas gift guide. For some reason I’ve been really struggling this year – why are you so hard to buy for Papa Posh?! 🎅 Each set of gifts are inspired by my collection of socks with Mooi en Lief because I thought it would be quite fun to put together. According to The Telegraph Gift Guide 😉 socks are a great gift idea… Top Of The Pops magazine think so too; you can spot them on the wishlist page on January 20th 2016! Also, scroll on down for a give-away! 🎉

Christmas Gift Guide and Give-Away - Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh - ASOS Urban Outfitters

~ HOMO SUPERIOR ~


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8


For the Homo Superior pair of socks, I decided to stick with a very gold based colour palette as the yellow is more of a mustard tone so it works really well. Although the design is pretty fun, it’s also really versatile which means it works well with other prints and more simple items like this super cute Monki beanie from ASOS. The Vagabonds are the ones I wore in the Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh lookbook, so if you know any big 70s fans, I’m sure they’ll love a pair of these as a treat (they’re on sale at the mo’ too).

There are also a few miscellaneous items like the Hunky Dory album by David Bowie which is actually one of the inspirations behind this pair of socks (hence the name – Homo Superior – from Oh You Pretty Things), as well as this super cute little Instax frame from Urban Outfitters (I’ve already put this on my own Christmas list!).

~ BLUE BOOTIN ~


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8


I’m not going to lie, this is probably a Tolly gift guide rather than just a general one because… I love every item. I think bold block prints always work well with either a contrasting colour or monochrome… it just seems to compliment these sorts of prints really well. I had to include at least one Skinnydip item in this gift guide as they have so many exciting pieces now… I mean, look at that ZAP bag?!

Speaking of bags, this awesome Dr Martens number is so beautiful. My black backpack has had so much wear already so I can definitely recommend their bags as much as their boots… who wouldn’t want Dr Martens under their tree, though?

I’ve also included some adorable stocking fillers like some holographic stickers, a book for budding photographers and a keyring incase the ZAP bag is a bit too much for your gift receiver.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9


I think when styling up primary colours, it’s best to stay within the primary colour spectrum, so that’s why for these socks I went with some red and blue pieces that compliment the socks really well. Plus, most people like reds and blues especially when it comes to winter and Christmas, so these gifts might be great options. There are quite a few stocking fillers listed too, if you’re looking for smaller gifts. Belts, hats, scarves, gloves and even socks, are great for simple gifts for friends when you’re really stuck for ideas – even if it does sound boring!

I’ve seen lots of these mittens now, going along with the 70s trend, and they look super cosy! Match them with a beanie and you’re good to go… you could even jazz it up with a matching floral crown (I’ve done this with floppy hats before – it magically transforms your hat!). Also for an extra touch of cosy – mugs and hot chocolate are always a great combo!

Christmas Gift Guide for Fashion Lovers

By November 30, 2014 DIY & Lifestyle

This year I decided I wanted to do a gift guide. I love reading and watching them, so why not do one here?! This post may come across quite stereotypical, and I know everyone has different tastes, but if you need some inspiration, or want to know that you are definitely getting the right kind of gift for a fashion loving friend, then it might be useful to you. Let me know if you have bought any of these kinds of gifts yet in the comments!

Fashion Flakes

Let’s start off with a cheap and cheerful one… you maybe thinking, why the heck have I included a box of cereal? Well my friend, these are not any kind of corn flake cereal… these are fashion flakes. You may or may not know of the designer Anya Hindmarch, who’s AW15′ collection was food inspired. Some of the designs featured our favourite tiger, ‘Tony’, on them, so Kellogg’s have gone and collaborated with her on an actual box! Pretty cool huh? These are only around £3, so if you can get to a Waitrose, or if you can buy them online, get them! They’re a fab stocking filler too… and if your gift receiver is like me… they’ll probably just keep the box sealed!

New Look Gift CardTopshop Gift Card

A fail safe option is the classic gift card. Usually covered in snowflakes and robins at this time of year, but packed with as little or as much money as you can afford. They’re perfect for anyone who likes to shop, because you don’t have to worry on choosing something that will fit, or even suit their tastes! Most let you put on a minimum of £10-15, so if you want a gift for a friend, or perhaps an additional stocking filler, these will be perfect. It’s also perfect because then they can spend it on sale items of which you may have bought yourself anyway… it’s a win-win situation!

Mink & Stone Jewellery Sponsored*

Recently, the rise and demand for unique and personalised jewellery has been higher than ever! There is something so special about receiving a gift which is completely unique and one off, so when I heard about Mink & Stone, I was intrigued! I’ve always loved designing and making my own necklaces and bracelets, and this service just makes it easier. You can choose from hundreds of beads, lots of chain lengths and metal tones, and easily design it with the virtual designer. There are so many beads to choose from, so if you want a slightly different present for a loved one, definitely check out this new idea…

Alexander Wang  x H&M

Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t personally love this collection, but I know a lot of people do, and if you know somebody who does, they’ve probably already asked you for something a million times. The Alexander Wang collection has been one of the biggest collaborations of the year, and it definitely tops off this gift guide! The cheapest piece is a metal ring with a handy whistle (?!) and the more pricey and wearable items come in at around £150… so definitely be certain that your chum will suit the piece you buy! Plus, items are always going in stock and then out again, so you need to be quick to snap these up before they’re all gone!

If I Could I Would Wishlist: Funky Bling & Quay

By October 11, 2013 Fashion, Wishlist

Hello everyone! How are you on this fine grey day? I’m really tired at the moment and cannot wait for a weeks break very soon (although, it’s not really a break, as I’m gonna’ be verrrrry busy!), and also I have to sleep next door to a 3 week year old baby (eeeee!) so I guess this tiredness will get worse… oh. Anyway! This is a ‘If I Could I Would’ wishlist, basically meaning, if I had the money to waste on very expensive beanies, these are the ones I would pick (and other stuff)… enjoy!

designer high end fashion wishlist tatty devine quay eyeware funky bling asosAnnabelle//Bat//Pink Harvest//Yellowbric//Ivy//Mancini From £23.69 – £24.99

Quay Eyeware – I found this amazzzzzzing glasses brand via ARK clothing, and oh wow, I have fallen in love. SO NICE. My favourites are the ‘Pink Harvest’ pair. I love round sunglasses and these are bright pink sooo….? They’re not like £300+ obviously, but I do have quite a few sunglasses, so they aren’t really needed, but ‘If I Could, I Would‘… haha! designer high end fashion wishlist tatty devine quay eyeware funky bling asosRebel £60.00//Dope Jewel £150.00//Meow £30.00

Funky Bling Beanies – Upon searching ‘funky’ into ASOS (as you do), I came across these beanies. Now, I am sure you could DIY them some how (anyone have any ideas?), but they are pretty cool. I don’t think I could ever quite commit to owning a £150 beanie really… or a £60 one… or a £30 one… but, they are pretty cool! My favourite is the REBEL one. I feel like the jewel one could get in your face bit too much, and the MEOW one is a bit bright for everyday wear. If I did ever by one of these, I would probably have to invest in a cat free safe so that 1, no threads are pulled, and 2, I don’t ever lose (or wear) it.

Holographic Jacket – Do I need to explain? It’s metallic AND a biker, AND a leather jacket. It’s a tad pricey to splurge on, but it would be a good investment, non? Eleventh Paris always reminds me of The Hunger Games because I had a poster of the guy who acts as the fashion designer (you with me?) – Eeep! 2nd movie is out soon! YAY! – so yah.

Tatty Devine Necklace – First of all, do we like my editing skills? Putting ‘Tolly’ on the necklace? Yup. Secondly, how cute? I first saw this necklace on Olivia Purvis (What Olivia Did) – obviously not with Tolly on – and I just think they are really cool! I probably wouldn’t have my name, but I dunno’. Maybe?

Gladiator Sandals – I LOVE THESE SO SO MUCH. I’ve seen them loads, but I just want them. Like seriously, If I Could I DEFINITELY Would! They’re chunky, but simple, retro but cool. Ahhh, one can dream. These would be good in A/W too with nice tights and all, and amazing in Summer. Whyeeeee! Gah, I WILL have them one day. I WILL!

I know not all of these were ridiculously expensive, but it’s not always fun looking at things which are wayyy out of your price range. I mean, who here would spend £150 on a beanie? I hope you liked this post! If you want to see more things which are on my wishlist, check out my wishlist page here! I’m sorry I haven’t updated it recently, I will!
