New Year New Lusts...

As I settle into the swing of post-Christmas life, I'm starting to feel refreshed and excited about all the new products I can lust over in January!

I am a huge fan of Christmas but once it's all over, there is a certain relief as we start to think about Spring and what 2013 will bring...

Having poked my nose here there and everywhere, here is my Lust List for January, I hope you enjoy my picks... (just lick on each image for more details)

Being the mum of an 8 year old boy can be challenging at times, especially now he is taking an interest in fashion and doesn't always agree with my style selections! One place we both love though is River Island, their boyswear range is my high street favourite for sure.

This contrast sleeve parka is great at only £40 and is available in ages 3 - 12

This studded crosses t-shirt gets the thumbs up too, and is a snip at only a tenner!

I also love how boys get to accessorise more now, and this rucksack is perfect for carrying round all the stuff you need when you're 8 - DS, Top Trumps, Skylanders, Dr Who figures, sweets from Santa and a pack of tissues from Mum!

So that's the little man sorted, what about me? Hmmm, I have been loving some of the latest offerings from Navabi...

This smart LBD is perfect for curves and has a real retro edge, I just love it!

I am also a big fan of this 2 in 1 dress with sheer over-layer, you could dress it up or down and the claret colour is divine...

I also LOVE this new season knit from Evans, in deep navy blue it's studded heart design is fab, and will be perfect with skinnies.

I am also loving these butterfly toe-cap flats from New Look, they are definitely coming home with me!

When I saw this Accessorize handbag, I nearly let out a little shriek - I adore it! And a bargain at £25 if you ask me!

And of course, my lust list would not be complete without a few bits of vintage loveliness!

This gorgeous coffee set would look perfect in any modern kitchen, and these striped cups are bound to impress your guests!

This stunning reproduction vintage Art Deco brooch has been handmade in France from the highest grade materials and using the original mouldings. It is truly beautiful and as near as you can get to the real deal...

Looks expensive right? Well it can be yours, along with a little certificate of authenticity, for less than £40! Amazing I know!

Treat yourself to a little post-Christmas gift, this vintage graphic print scarf from Richard Allen is superb...

The dotty pattern is fabulous and the neutral tones will team up with so many different outfits. A bit of vintage designerwear that doesn't break the bank...

Speaking of not breaking the bank, I stumbled across a rather glam evening dress recently from Minnies Boutique...

I can't quite believe that this is only £32.50 in the sale! If I could squeeze myself into it I would! I think it's a great dress that would see you through many seasons with it's classic vintage inspired style and cut... gorgeous!

So that's my round up complete for January, a few of my favourite things from here, there and everywhere.

If you like any of my selections or have some recommendations of your own, leave a comment below, I'd love to hear from you!
