A letter from Emma about: Bunny Slippers

Dear Reader, 

Today's post is all about slippers, well to be specific bunny slippers. The lovely people from Jolly Bunny sent me some bunny slippers to review. I love products which are unique and original so I was very excited when they arrived: 

Heating is very expensive and with the cold weather upon us slippers are a great way to keep warm as well as prolonging turning the heating on. When I moved into my student flat last year for the first time ever I lived in a house with floorboards and tiles, whilst this is great for me as I am prone to spilling drinks, I definitely missed the warmth that carpet gave my feet. Immediately I invested in slippers (for the first time ever) and I felt so much warmer. I don't know about you but when my feet are cold, my whole body is cold too! Which is why these slippers from Jolly Bunny are so great, because they keep my feet super toasty. I also like the humour element of them and love the little rabbit's tale. When my niece comes to visit next week I am pretty sure she is going to love them too.

A letter from Emma about: Monochrome

Dear Reader, 

Today's bargain was not located in a charity shop but instead on the high street, although I love shopping in charity shops I do not locate all my clothes from them. This dress is a bit out-there and I am pretty sure you will either love it or hate it. I guess I could call it the marmite dress, so here it is: 


This dress was originally £46 from Topshop, however it was reduced in the sale to £25 and then further reduced to £10, with my student discount it came to the gran total of £9. Not bad, considering it's original price was over £30 more than what I paid. When it comes to high street fashion I rarely ever pay full price for anything... it's just not worth it. With a little patience and planning you can buy your favourite high street clothes at a fraction of the price if you wait for a sale. Often I decide on a price I'm willing to pay for something and refuse to buy it before it is reduced to that price or until the store do a 'student discount' special. 
It is also important to note that when your buy something brand new and at full price it's value dramatically reduces. So, the less you pay for an item the more likely you are to make a little bit of profit if you decide to sell it on. 
This year monochrome has really made its way back into fashion, and at first I wasn't overly convinced but after consideration I really like it. It brightens up 'black' a little bit, also if you are clever and buy horizontal monochrome pattern clothing its very flattering (plus stops you from looking like a robber).

Anyway, I quite like the dress. If all else fails I can wear this for fancy dress; either as a Zebra or a Mint Humbug.

A letter from Emma about: A Onesie

Dear Reader, 

To onesie, or not to onesie: that is the questions: 
And subsequently what today's blog post is about. 

The onesie craze gained status about two years ago, and I have always been on the borderline about whether or not to join in. Yes, I want to be warm but I don't want to look like a full grown adult in a baby grow. However, Onesie Warehouse have some lovely onesies which look great as well as keeping you soooo warm and they were kind enough to send me one to review: 

Emma + Onesie = One very happy student. 

Oh, I love it!
 With in two minutes of putting it on, I cant believe I ever doubted them or lived without one. I love this wonderful world of onesie wearing full of warmth and comfort, and this world has so many benefits. One of the biggest adjustments after moving out of student halls was the high price of heating bills, they are just so expensive. Therefore, one way to avoid putting the heating on is to wear warmer clothing, and I cannot stress just how warm onesies are. I am pretty sure that my average body temperature has increased by 5Âșc  since having my onesie. Also, the warmer I am the less likely I am to turn the heating on = lots of money saving.

Onesie Warehouse sell some very reasonably priced onesies, starting from as little as £15. I have my eye on an animal dinosaur one next, yes I have been completely converted. Oh its great, and not only are they the warmest pyjamas in the world, but also they are great for chillin' around the house in.

So how about you:
To onesie, or not to onesie?
