Hello fabulous lovelies. So the season is upon us. Christmas is here. So for the first time this year and hopefully for years to come I have created the Signature Styling Advent Calendar. This article will cover 25 gift ideas over 5 blog posts for the glamorous ladies, young and old, in your life, if you are thinking of treating yourself or need to drop any hints. I have tried to keep all items under £100 in fact most are a lot less. I had grand ideas of following a slightly cheesy theme whereby I followed the lyrics to the 12 days of Christmas inspiring gifts but to be fair I couldn't get passed a partridge in a pear tree! Anyway, hope you enjoy what has essentially become my Christmas wish list!

Now that it is cold cold, layers are key! Hats are a key accessory for looking fab and keeping warm. Opt for a fur bobble hat to keep you head warm and look stylish. These style of hats are everywhere at the moment but I've found www.thefurbobblehat.com has a great selection of knit types and colours. They also offer different sizes of fur pom pom and you can even create your own wool mix for adults and kids. Something for all the family.

I am choosing to sneak a little stocking filler in here. NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. This lipstick comes in 24 different vibrant colours. It's glides on and it sets in a matte finish. It is waterproof and long lasting. Just remember to check your teeth for lippie! Available for £6.50 at Boots, you might be able to afford a couple of colours.

Leopard print is big this season. It is super sexy and wearable at any age. I have to admit it is one of my all time favourite prints and I think I may have been wearing an item of leopard print for about a week now! It is everywhere, coats, scarves, skirts, bags, roar! I, however, opted for a shoe or two... maybe four. Footwear is a good way to wear a trend that is at an affordable price point for all.
Firstly Miss KG Chyna court shoe, £55. A very feminine option complete with ankle strap and pretty bow.
By Karen Millen this heel is finished with wet look patent leather trim oozing sophistication. These are a pricer shoe but cost per wear, well worth the price tag, £145.
A real statement winter boot. Leopard print PU ankle boot from Wallis, £39.50.
Finally ticking a couple of trend boxes, ballet flats from Topshop are a soft velvet leopard print material, perfect teamed with your skinny jeans.

We all need the ultimate clutch bag for the Christmas do or girlie night out over the Christmas season. For me, it has to be a metallic. It immediately adds glamour and sophistication.
A metallic clutch will compliment any gorgeous outfit. I found these to depending on whether you like your metallics hot or cool. Both of these options are from Accessorize, Star zip top clutch bag, £29.50. Mila embellished zip top bag, £29.

Another stocking filler option here from Topshop, £15.. I do love a little mismatch or quirky piece of jewellery and I really like these gold look earrings with blue rhinestone for a pop of colour.
Hope you like the first few days, stay tuned for day 6-10. Stay gorgeous!
