So we’re almost at the end of the year – time for a look back on the month’s goings on!
The stunning model Teer Wayde did a photoshoot for us and braved pleather pants in the Australian sunshine for us.
Becky reviewed our Simply Voluptuous Denim Dress…
It’s been a very busy month! So if we’ve missed you and you’d like to be featured just tweet us @SimplyBeUK x

We hope you have a truly wonderful one and that Santa brings you everything you wish for x
The sparkly sign says it all really – there are some truly amazing buys to be had right now at Simply Be!
Here are some of the best buys:
A dressy top that will look fab all year round – we love the beautiful print and the slash sleeves.
Dressed down with jeans or glammed up with wet look leggings and heels, this shirt dress is so easy to wear.
Not one but two beautiful bras in a big cup size range for under a tenner. One peach and one ivory per set.
A swimsuit in winter? Actually it’s the perfect time to buy, ready for a new year swimming regime or to avoid 2012′s pre-holiday buying panic! Sizes 12-32 still available at time of writing.
Happy Bargain Hunting!
With this morning’s sprinkling of snow our thoughts have turned away from party dresses and towards all things to keep you warm, cosy – and dry! And stylish of course, but surely that goes without saying.
1) The Festive Jumper
A soft and cosy jumper in festive red is super snuggly. The dipped hem shape is perfect with leggings and Ugg-type boots.
2) The Cardigan Coat
If it’s cold but dry out, or you just want to wrap up in an extra layer indoors, this Joe Browns cardigan coat (or coatigan) will keep you toasty.
3) Thermal Socks
Nobody likes cold feet! If you’re out on a wintry walk, line those wellies with some heat-retaining thermal socks and crunching over icy puddles will be a walk in the park.
4) The Faux Fur Scarf
Faux fur has been a big trend this season and what simpler way to work the trend than with a vintage style fur stole. Warning: people may try to stroke you.
5) The Knitted Beret
Team your fur scarf with a cute soft beret - after all, you lose the most heat through your head! If you think you don’t suit hats you’ll find this style surprisingly flattering.
6) The Fleece Gown
Whether curled up on the sofa watching a Christmas movie or gathered around the tree with your family on Christmas morning, you’ll need to keep out the chill. Slip into this super soft long sleeved fleece gown and get that fire going!
Many of you have been waiting eagerly for the footage of the our Model Competition – and here it is!
Even set agaist the backdrop of the incredible Monastery venue in Gorton, Manchester, the star quality of all our finalists really shines through.

It’s not just your Christmas party that requires a fabulous outfit – Christmas weekend means spending lots of time with family and friends – some of whom you only see once in a blue moon, so we all want to look our best. Then of course there are all the photo opportunities. And let’s not forget that any occasion is lots more fun when you look and feel fabulous!
Christmas is a very busy time, so the last thing you want to be worrying about is what you look like. Get your Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day outfits all planned out and then you can just relax – as much as you can!
Here are our suggestions – but of course everybody does everything differently over the festive period, so adapt these outfits to suit Christmas your way.
Many people like to get together or go out for drinks on Christmas Eve, so this glam look is just the thing. You can’t get more Christmassy than festive red while the leather-look trousers add a daring dose of rock’n'roll – but you could always swap these for plain leggings or tights.
The day itself is usually a time for family get-togethers so choose an outfit that will keep everybody happy. This chic blouse from our Lauren’s Way collection gives a bold colour pop that’s perfect for Christmas Day whilst palazzo pants are both comfy and on trend. Add a touch of sparkle with a hair accessory plus some fab shoes. If you’re doing the cooking or lots of running around after people then simply switch the heels for some fab flats. Effortless!
Whether you’re out for some fresh air to walk off a bit of that Christmas pud or simply snuggling and snoozing, a soft knitted jumper dress and thick tights will keep you warm and cosy. Shearling lined boots and bag add to the cosy feel and a scarf will add extra warmth. Royal purple is just the colour to keep that festive feeling going.
Whether Christmas shopping is something you love or loathe we could all do with a bit of inspiration to help us along!
If you’re stuck for what to buy that certain someone, here are some of our easy ideas – you can buy them all online with your Simply Be account!
The Gorgeous Girly
For girlies that love to look glam, how about some Lauren’s Way tanning products? Then she can get that immaculate TOWIE finish without having to step near a sunbed!
The Awkward Man
We all know at least one of them don’t we? Whether it’s a dad, brother, uncle or your other half, the fellas can be tricky to find great gifts for. Choices may seem more limited when buying for the boys as they can have quite rigid tastes – so why not get them something you know they’ll love but make it extra special by getting it personalised?
The Lovely Lady
Mums, aunties and grans – they all deserve a bit of treating don’t they? A fluffy fleece gown and some cosy slipper booties are the clothing equivalent of a hug… and we all love hugs, don’t we?
Our friends at The Brilliant Gift Shop have got so many ideas for toddlers that you will have no problem finding something wonderful. Something from the Learning & Development range will set them on their way to becoming a brain surgeon whilst still being lots of fun!
Teenagers can be notoriously hard to please. Channel their creative energy by getting them started on guitar, or tick off two of their favourite foodstuffs in one by treating them to a chocolate pizza!
The One Who Has it All
What do you buy the person who has everything? Give them an experience they’ll never forget! Our experience days range from sports car track says to a studo recording session. They’ll have the memories forever.
