Keep warm with these winter wonders

After battling Oxford street on this incredibly cold day I decided to look on-line for some winter warmers, these are my top picks from the web. It's also incredibly satisfying to sit in and shop while it's so wet and cold outside.

These Paul Smith Metallic Mittens are both toasty and tasty, these black shearling mittens are the perfect way to make sure you're snug in colder months. Sheer luxury!

They're not cheap but they certainly are a much prettier alternative to the regular UGG Boot but are the UGG Josyln worth £219? I think so..

This fake fur ear muffs are also on my to buy list and are a snip at £12.00 from John Lewis.

Practical and stylish, wear the ‘Fiona’ knitted snood by Amber Little to add another dimension to a sports-inspired look. £75.00

At £229 it aint cheap but it is pretty...Wool muffler by Rike Feurstein at ASOS. Featuring a chunky knit texture, silky lining and rope neck-string.

I'm loving the country tweeds trend in shops now

I was browsing the racks of Mango on regent street earlier today and was pleasantly surprised at the huge amount of "horsey-wear" in there.. This is a term I've used since visiting Cheltenham last year, when every second horsey person was seen wearing tweed in one form or another. Tweed and elbow patches have moved from the farm/racing course to the high street and I for one am really pleased.. Don't forget about shearling-style coats and jackets as get off my land!!

£84.90 Slim-fit single breasted tweed blazer with padded shoulders, flap top pockets on the front and contrasting elbow patches.

£139.00: Wrap lapel coat with long-sleeves, folded cuffs, side pockets and contrasting woven trims.

Celebrity Mugshot Special: My Top celebrity mugshots

Celebs like Paris Hilton, may lead a life most of us can only dream of but we're all the same when it comes to the law, actually that's not true..plenty of us have a lot more common sense then these celebs, I mean why would you bother drink-driving when you've got access to an actual driver?...duh! Celebrities also have access to the best lawyers money can buy so they're pretty sorted really.. why else could the get away with crimes that would get us mere mortals locked up for life, well a few weeks anyway.

1999:Carmen Electra:Only months after their whirlwind nine-day marriage was annulled, former Playboy centerfold and Baywatch actress Carmen Electra (real name Tara Patrick) was arrested in November 1999 with basketball star Dennis Rodman after the celebrity couple got into a fight at a Miami Beach hotel.

 2008:The photograph of Michael Jackson looking pale and slightly shocked was shown on newspapers and TV stations around the world. But while millions were left stunned at how ill the singer looked, it has now emerged that the vain star had actually been made up before posing for the camera. But Jackson seemingly isn't alone at looking the worse for wear when posing for his jail mugshot as this celebrity gallery of shame shows.
 2007:Shamed actress Mischa Barton manages a wry smile for her police mugshot after being arrested for DUI, possession of narcotics and driving without a valid licence.

She was sentenced to jail after violating her probation from a 2007 drink driving and cocaine possession conviction
1971:And finally Hollywood legend Jane Fonda has taken to her blog to speak out about her infamous mugshot. The mugshot, taken in 1971, shows Fonda with her 'Klute' haircut and with her left fist raised. The actress was arrested at Cleveland Aiport on her way to an anti-war rally at a college campus because of three envelopes containing pills. It turns out the pills were Fonda's vitamins for breakfast, lunch, and dinner but she was arrested for drug smuggling and Fonda believes it a smear campaign to hurt her nationwide speaking tour.

Is Kylie Minogue Fur Real?!! Kylie embraces Fashion's latest trend

Kylie Minogue, was spotted looking warm and stylish in rainy London yesterday in what is now known as Fantasy Fur aka Fake fur! Does this now mean that the fake stuff now has the proper stamp of approval? I bloody hope so seeing as I've invested in at least two jackets!!

To be honest I've long had a love affair with all things Leopard print for years and have been counting down the seasons to when I can unleash years old Leopard print jackets and boots.. my time has arrived and if Kylie's endorsing it, well you know where I'm going with this so grab a skinny belt (which by the way makes it ultra flattering) and embrace your inner yeti.. me thinks this style is going to be monster!

Super-skinny Victoria Beckham get's tangoed in London

Victoria Beckham looked suppa, suppa skinny in a tangerine shift dress from her own collection as she left Claridge's in London earlier today following a luncheon where she previewed some of her new designs from her spring/summer 2011 collection - including bags, gowns and sunglasses, she headed to another event at the InterContinental Hotel.

Maybe Posh isn't as skinny as she looks and it's her Croydon facelift  and oversized statement DVB sunglasses that's doing it. Whatever she is too skinny or not the girl can work the colour orange, not an easy task by anyone's standards.

If you're brave enough try these out for size.. If  Mrs Beckahm is wearing orange I think it's time to sit up and take note.

Mango Dress
This Mango gorgeous  belted dress with a high round neck and chic short sleeves, fitted just enough to flatter but skims the body in all the right places. A simple dress with clean lines in this seasons hottest shade. A must have for every day style....

Hilary Alexander, the fashion critic for the Daily Telegraph, had earlier been at lunch at Claridge's with Victoria and reported on her blog that the former Spice Girl was feeling a little nervous about her Q&A session.

Mylie Cyrus Shops in Derby

Yes, Derby had the good luck to have a visit from Mylie Cyrus in her bid to take over the world to sell her wares to the local screaming hoards.

The teen star is more used to rubbing shoulders with the Hollywood jet-set than mixing with the locals in Derby but in fairness to her she did seem excited to be there as she launched her new Miley and Max clothing line at the Supermarket.

Asda's head of PR Leah Watson said: "The response has been overwhelming - everybody loves Miley.
"There's probably about five or six hundred people here today but thousands and thousands of people actually wanted to come in and see Miley and see the new range that she's been doing with George but unfortunately she just couldn't see everyone."
