With a couple of weeks delay due to childcare disaster (you may have noticed I'm not back to daily posts yet), this morning I'm going back to work after a year on maternity leave. For those of you who only recently started reading WIT, my day job is Fashion and Shopping Editor at RED magazine. I edit the front of book section and compile all those shoppingy pages you read at the front of book section of most magazines. So yes, my job is to scout trends and bring you the edit of the best things to buy right now. Here's how I got ready to my return to working life and a few of my latest buys..
1. A new hair cut
George Northwood at Josh Wood in Liberty London has been cutting my hair for the past year. Post Greta I still think it's the best style-investment I've made so far. This time I went a little shorter, George suggested going for a choppy, messy bob and as always, I love it.
2. Statement sweaters
If there's one thing to invest in this season it's a statement jumper: throw it on with a pair of jeans, dress it up with a statement necklace or clash it with a print skirt, I've bought a few (below) and it's the easiest style update you can make this season (also this week's Star Buys theme).
3. Umph denim
I don't buy a lot of jeans, but once in a while I like to try something a little bit different. I picked up this patchwork pair from HM (in store now) and have been wearing them with everything.

4. Winter shade
Especially now that I have a bay (and half as much time to get ready) I'm all for a quick fix and instant updates, a coat of lipstick does just that. I got a bit bored of the corally hues I've been wearing for the past couple of years, so when a make up artist suggested something new I was all for it. I've adopted this Nars Matte Velvet Lip Pencil in Cruella from from SpaceNK as my "winter shade".
5. Greta Collection additions
I've added charms and bracelets to The Greta Collection range! I love my new yellow G pendant an my rose gold L bracelet. Take a look at "The Greta Collection" section for prices and info on how to order.
Now head down and back at work but come and see me on Twitter and Instagram to see what I'm up to!
