Vinted Christmas Wishlist

A & C: Christmas is one of our most favourite times of the year, and we love nothing more than shopping at Christmas – so when the lovely team at Vinted asked us to put together a wishlist from their catalogue, we jumped at the chance! Vinted is a fantastic app and website which offers an endless array of fashion and accessory choices from one base. Annie recently reviewed the app, so click here for the full lowdown. So let’s get on to our wishlists!

A:

 9394873

Fedora Hat – £8.00

I’ve been after one of these for AGES, and I really love the shape of this one, plus its black so can be worn with pretty much the whole of my wardrobe!

8733035

Next Owl Boot Toppers £6.90 + P&P

Heheheheh I probably wouldn’t buy these for myself, but I couldn’t not include them and if someone bought them for me as a present I would love them! Owl boot toppers for Two Little Owls? Amazing. I probably wouldn’t wear these with anything other than wellies, but they would look great with them so totally worth it. Originally priced at £15, another bargain!

8545465

French Connection Gold Sequin £33.50 + P&P

This is PERFECT for Christmas. I love tunic/swing shape dresses (they hide the lumpy bits I don’t want people to see). And this one is beyond beautiful. I love it so much, and it would look great for a Christmas party, or even to wear on Christmas day! Originally £120, and this isn’t brand new, but if you’re looking for a bargain designer dress this is ideal.

9871915

New Look Tartan Cape £16 + P&P

I have been on the look out for a tartan cape for ages now, and I love the colours in this one. Chloe has a monochrome one which suits her perfectly (click here to see it!), and I love to steal it from time to time but the colours just don’t suit me. This is definitely on my Christmas list though!

C:

Urban Outfitters Tie-Dye Camisole Dress £25 + P&P

I love tie dye and I love dresses… so as soon as I saw this I knew I had to add it to my wish list! I would wear this with tights, ankle boots and my vintage leather jacket for a Christmas party.

BooHoo Christmas Jumper £9

A Christmas wish list wouldn’t be complete without a Christmas jumper now would it?! I always wear one on Christmas day, and for £9 this is an absolute bargain! Definitely going on my Christmas list.

Miss Selfridge Gold Metallic Skirt £15

I am in love with this! It is so perfect for a Christmas party, the gold pattern makes it super festive! The skater style also suits me, as it goes in at the waist. For any of you curvy ladies like me, this would be perfect for giving you that hourglass shape!

Miss Selfridge Sheer Pink, Encrusted Collar Blouse £28

I picked this as I thought it would look amazing with the gold skirt! I love wearing skater skirts with a sheer blouse tucked in. The collar is also beautiful and adds even more bling to the outfit (you can never have too much!)

Have you guys ever used Vinted? It is such a good way to get a bargain! Let us know what you think of our wish lists! #twolittleowls

Have you heard about The Hunt?

    A&C: You know that frustrated feeling you get when you’re looking for the perfect dress for the Christmas party, you’ve trawled through all of the shops but you still can’t find it anywhere? Well the fashion gods have worked their magic and the problem has been solved! The Hunt app was launched by CEO Tim Weingarten in America back in 2013, and has accumulated over 3 million registered users after being advertised as “The Cure for Outfit Envy” with US ambassadors Ashton Kutcher and Tyra Banks. It’s now been brought to the UK (yipee!) with it’s very own UK ambassador Rosie Fortescue, whom we all know and love from Made In Chelsea and her own blog At Fashion Forte (click here to see her blog and check out her ah-mazing wardrobe).

The Hunt is a ‘community-powered’ app which you can log into, post a photo of what you’re looking for, and let the community of the app help you find the solution to your problem. It homes in on the support we give each other in the fashion world, and it turns trawling through the internet for hours to find your prefect outfit into an easy, fun and social thing to do. And you can even set specific parameters, like price, colour and style to narrow down your search. And it’s free to download on ios7/8! What more could you want?

We were lucky enough to be invited to the the launch party, held at Disco in the heart of Soho – a very swish underground club with  a ’70’s Manhattan’ theme (a wall of roller skates and a ceiling full of disco balls…say whaaat?!). The cocktails were sublime, the atmosphere was exciting and the company was fantastic. We had the chance to catch up with other bloggers, like Candy from Owl Girl, and meet new people too like the gorgeous Maria from Chio Photography. We had an amazing chat with Tim, the CEO of The Hunt, who gave us the low down on the inspiration behind the app and the stats that have already been achieved by the community. The best thing about The Hunt is that as it’s community grows, the better it will get – with more and more fashion enthusiasts helping each other track down their most wanted items.

Here’s a few photo’s we managed to get on the night.

We even got the chance to meet Rosie too, who looked as beautiful as ever in a feminine take on the classic tuxedo.

If you’re as excited about this brand new fashion app as we are, you can download it from the App Store here, and don’t worry – if you’re not on the Apple bandwagon, it will be available on android within the next few weeks. They also have a blog too, so click here to keep up to date with their latest posts! We’ve already got the app downloaded and can’t wait to share our finds with you!

We would like to say a huge thank you to the girls at 10PR for the invite. We had such an amazing time!! #twolittleowlsblog

The I <3 Food Tag

A & C: We spotted this on Raindrops & Teacups blog and although she didn’t tag us to do it, we really wanted to have a go because… well we basically love food. You should also go and check out her blog because it really is lovely 🙂

What’s your favourite food?

A: Cheese. 100%. I love all the cheeses.

C: Cheese, bread and pecan plaits (I have gone through a weird obsession where I have to have one every day… starting to get over it now but it was a tough couple of weeks).

Any weird foods you like?

A: I could sit and eat a whole jar of pickled beetroot pretty easily. Not a weird food but the amount of it that I eat is weird, but it’s healthy so it’s allowed.

C: Pickled onions, everyone thinks they are gross but I love them.

Favourite vegetable?

A: Sweet potato. Love that stuff.

C: Sweet potato and sweetcorn. Basically all the sweet stuff apparently.

Favourite fast food?

A: This is totally gross but when I’m hungover I love a dirty burger from Burger King.

C: (totally lolled at the use of “dirty burger”). I also love a good Burger King or a McDonalds chicken burger. Basically… all the (dirty) burgers.

Favourite Sauce?

A: Depends on the food that I’m dipping but I love ketchup/salad cream/mango chutney (or chuckney as my bf thinks it’s called).

C:All the sauces! My boyfriend calls me “saucy mc-saucerson” not because I’m super-sexy-saucey but because I have to put sauce on EVERYTHING I eat. Same as Annie though, I love ketchup, salad cream, mayo, BBQ and mango chutters!

Chinese or Indian?

A: Indian.

C:Indian every time. I am partial to a Chinese every now and again though.

Food pet hates?

A: Peanut butter in general. Especially when people eat it with their mouth open. WHAT.

C:People eating loudly = VOM. I have to walk away. I also hate celery, aubergine (aka dead peoples skin) and eating meat off the bone.

Pizza Hut or Domino’s?

A: Domino’s.

C:Domino’s every time! I love their garlic and herb dip!

Name three foods you could never live without

A: Cheese (see above), beetroot (see above…) and cereal.

C:Bread, cheese and Marmite.

A food you hate?

A: Cucumber. And Bananas. They’re the worst.

C: I answered this earlier, dayum. I do eat bananas though… because I know they are good for me so I force them down. I only eat half though (before vommage) and then get made fun of at work!

Favourite restaurant chain?

A: Nandos! Although Chloe and I went to a GBK for the first time a few weeks ago and it was like we had died and gone to heaven.

C: Gourmet Burger Kitchen is now my favourite too (we shall be posting photos soon of all the amazing things we had to eat there!)

Three most important things at a restaurant

A: Food, value for money, cleanliness and service.

C: Cleanliness, nice people/atmosphere and the food has got to taste good!

We had loads of fun doing this, and we tag anyone who has read this! #twolittleowls

A & C: We got nominated for an award recently by Rachael from “rachwat” so we thought we had better reply with our answers to her questions! (we love these posts as we are very nosey).

1. What’s your most recent purchase?

C: We recently went to London and visited Lush. I got Eau Roma Water, MMMelting Marshmallow Moment and the bubblegum lip scrub.

A: Again, from our Lush Trip the Mint Julips Lip Scrub, the Comforter Bubblebar and Ultrabland. Post to come soon!

2. If you could get one product for free, what would you choose and why?

A: A mac book. I want/need one so bad 😦
3. What’s you’re favourite nail varnish?

C: I am far too fickle to have a favourite nail varnish for longer than about a week. Currently I am loving my Soigne nail polish in Persimmon. The perfect Summer to Autumn shade.

A: I Love a black nail varnish and my Leighton Denny sees me right through the year.
4. What’s your hair saviour?

C: my tangle teezer! I have no idea how I used to cope without it, my hair is so thick and unruly!

A: gotta be the same as Chloe on this one – my tangle teezer is the best hair product purchase I’ve made!
5. What is your favourite piece of clothing?

C: my new “janket” – we made that word up. Its basically a blanket/jacket in a monochrome/tartan pattern and its amazing. I won’t ruin it too much as it will definitely be featured in an OOTD soon!

A: my Mum recently knitted me a crazy cardigan and it’s so warm and snuggly and lovely. Not the most fashionable thing I own but it’s one of those things that you can put on and don’t even care what you look like cause it’s just TOO comfy.
6. What’s your favourite candle scent?

C: currently it is my toasted marshmallow Yankee Candle, but I love all Yankee Candles!

A: I love my chocolate orange scents that I use in my Bomb Cosmetics oil burner. Not gonna lie, I’ve been very tempted to eat them.

7. What are you most excited for this Autumn?

C: Autumn clothes, having the fire going, buying loads more boots that I do not need and wearing woolly socks in bed!

A: candles, autumn food, Halloween (YES), cosy cardies, woolly tights, crisp cool mornings, having the woodburner on at home, boots, using my new umbrella, wearing my parker. I basically love this time of year and could go on forever.

8. What’s your go to fragrance?

C: Amor Amor by Cacharel. I have always loved it

A: Jimmy Choo Flash
9.What drink do you order at a coffee shop?

C: I don’t really shop in coffee shops? I like to save my pennies for make up/clothes! I drink black coffee though, because I’m hardcore like that.

A: Those really yummy (calorific) strawberry and cream coolers from Costa are my fav.

10. Do you think you’ll still be blogging in five years?

A & C: we really hope so!

The Liebster Award

7eac0-liebsterawardbutton

A & C: Okay, so this is exciting! The lovely Anna at Stresses and Dresses (nice name!) has nominated us for The Liebster Award. We can’t thank you enough – it’s such a great way of finding new blogs to follow. We’ve decided to both answer the questions, that way you’ll get to know about us both 🙂

1. What is your favourite drink?

A: this is pretty obvious – it’s gotta be a white wine and lemonade. It is a perfect summer drink – we started drinking this last summer in my garden on those lovely, warm evenings and didn’t stop when the winter came!

C: Unfortunately, I am copying Annie here. It’s all about the white wine and lemonade! We said we were going to find a new drink in the winter but that didn’t happen… Non-alcoholic wise I would have to choose orange juice though!

2. Where is your favourite place to shop?

A: When it comes to clothes, I love ASOS because of their variety of brands. I really like vintage shopping though, fairs, antiques shows, charity shops. I’m always buying random tea cups, picture frames and glasses.

C: Asos, Topshop, Ark and vintage fairs!

3. Do you watch YouTube, if so who is your favourite YouTuber?

A: I don’t watch YouTube! But it is definitely on my list of things to do!

C: Me neither! I have seen a couple of Beauty in Beta‘s videos though which I really liked!

4. Do you prefer modern or vintage?

A: Vintage without a doubt.

C: A bit of both for me. I like to mix vintage finds with high street buys so my look is a bit different!

5. Do you prefer flats or high heels?

A: I like both – if I’m going out somewhere nice, I tend to opt for a heel but everyday wear is normally a nice pair of ballet pumps or boots.

C: I prefer buying heels, they are more exciting! But boots are my favourite every day footwear!

6.  What is your favourite flower?

A: There’s so many to choose from, but I think i would have to choose the cherry tree blossom flower, it’s so pretty and delicate – and reminds you that summer is on it’s way.

C: Me too! I need to stop spending so much time with Annie. But I have a cherry blossom tattoo over my foot, because it reminds me off my parents house (they have a massive cherry blossom tree in their front garden!)

7. What are you currently most grateful for?

A: Right now, I’m most grateful for having a place to call home that I love and never want to leave and my amazing (if slightly abnormal) friends and family.

C: Family, friends and health!

6. Do you prefer Skiing or sunny holidays?

A: Sunny! Even if I am pale and pasty, I am one of the clumsiest people in the world – I don’t think I will ever be able to attempt skiing!

C: I’m not sure. I have only ever been on sunny holidays and I’m not keen on sweating, I think it should be illegal. On the other hand I have never been skiiing and its something I really want to do!

8. Who is your Celebrity crush?

A: Leonardo Di Caprio – I hope I age as well as him.

C: Too many. Probably Tom Hardy if he was about a foot taller!

9. If you could visit the future or go back in time, which would you choose?

A: Back in time – I always think I was born in the wrong era, I’d love to be a hippy!

C: I’d go in to the future and bring loads of cool stuff back!

10.  What is your favourite TV programme?

A: This is hard, but either The Fresh Prince of Bel Air of The Great British Bake Off. Will Smith or cakes – tough decision.

C: Gossip Girl and The Great British Bake Off. Fashion, gossip and cake is all I ever need!

11.  What phone do you have?

A: an iPhone 4s.

C: Same!

Eleven Random Facts about us!

1. Chloe hates flesh coloured tights, they freak her out.

2. Chloe broke her phone within 24 hours of finally getting an iPhone, and has now had 3 new ones within 2 months – clumsiness is a problem with us.

3. Annie has two British Blue cats called Bill & Ted, they are incredibly fat and lazy

4. Both of our boyfriends are also friends. They like to pretend they are manly and “wild-boys”/ Ray Mears so go out hunting and making fires/other boring things.

5. Annie has a ridiculous fear of cotton wool. Yep, cotton wool. (She gives me them if they are “too cotton woolly” once she has tried them out!)

6. We would both rather have a night in, painting our nails and watching tv than go out drinking (we just drink at home instead!)

7. We are going paint balling on Saturday and are 100% sure we are going to be bruised and spending all the rest of the weekend recovering.

8. Chloe has an incredibly cute dog named Archie.

9. We both go to a Body Combat session at our gym together on a Monday and Thursday. We have to go to the back so no one can see how bad we are/how much we are laughing.

10. Favourite film? Mean Girls of course.

11. Every time we post, both of us read/proof read it before it is posted. Team work/ Chloe can’t spell and Annie can’t type.

And now to our nominations! (for some we couldn’t see how many followers people had, so we had to just guess! So sorry in advance if some have 200+ followers!)
