I'm a big fan of a personalised present. Namely because I like stuff with my name on it, and come to think of it, I'm yet to meet someone who doesn't love a Craig David-esque name check? It's also great from a gifting perspective because the world of personalisation is also a vast one. You may have a personalised card holder, but did you know you can personalise a watch face, or a champagne glass, or a hip flask? For a one-stop-shop for personalised presents, I've recently discovered Personally Presented, a UK website offering just about gift with a personalised touch. At Personally Presented monogramming is just the beginning when it comes to personalisation, the website also offer the option of adding thoughtful messages to many items from leather bags to travel wallets and hip flasks. I'm particularly into the personalised timepieces with customised watch faces, that happen to be really stylish too (sadly my birthday has been and gone, else I'd be dropping some hints). For some present-buying inspo, here's an edit of my favourite Personalised Gifts from Personally Presented

Hey hey, here's a long overdue outfit post featuring the perfect black blazer.

Blazers are such an important part of my wardrobe, I have a unofficial work wear wardrobe and it's basically blazers worn with t-shirts, jeans, trainers and the occasional pair of court shoes when I'm feeling less lazy (it can't be overstated how lazy I am when getting dressed). What I love about a blazer is that it makes me feel instantaneously work-ready and pulled together, even when my brain might not be on the same page (it usually gets going sometime around midday on a Tuesday).
