August 31st 2011


Wow it is officially the end of August and you know what that means I have been blogging for a whole month! Time flies when you’re having fun. Don’t worry I will be blogging into the Autumn months as (shock horror) I still have plenty of clothes left in my wardrobe.

I would like to say thanks to everyone that has been reading it. I am quite shocked by how many hits it has had this month (1346!). Also it is amazing to see I have readers from across the world. (USA, Canada, Ireland, Spain, Germany and even South Korea!) How amazing would it be if by next month my readership has increased and the list of countries has doubled!

I will stop rambling in a minute and get to the clothes. If you have any comments, queries or questions please free to contact me. I am welcome to any positive critiques. Also if there is something you would like to see me in or any trends you would like me try out again please contact me I am always up for a bit of experimenting ; )
Anyway today I am mostly wearing supermarket. The dress and the boots are both from Tesco. The bracelet is Pandora, the headband is Peacocks and the earrings are Primark.

August 30th 2011




I successfully managed to tackle Tuesday! Whoop whoop just the rest of the week to go. Today I have worn a New Look top, Primark skirt and vintage earrings. I think I may have to roll the winter wardrobe out a bit earlier this year : ( I normally manage to get up, do hair and makeup all without turning on a light. Today though, I struggled to see my face! Not only is it starting to stay darker in the morning, but it is getting a bit chillier. Before you know it I will have to put the heating on.

So I will leave you on this sad note, Summer has left us for someone else (the Southern Hemisphere I think)

August 29th 2011

Bank holiday Monday already! I can't believe how quickly the weekend has gone : ( Today I am trying to be resourceful with my outfit. After reading www.wiwt.com on Saturday and an article on how to make the most out of a shirt. I thought I am going to make use of the man's white shirt that has been sat in my wardrobe since I went out dressed as groom.

So today I am wearing a man's Florence and Fred shirt, a vintage Primark belt, Primark leggings and Clarks heels. The heels I actually robbed off my mum as she has barely worn them and was going to get rid of them! So I think this is a very resourceful outfit. Now I am all dressed up with nowhere to go : (

August 28th 2011



Can you believe I have been blogging for nearly a whole month? I showed my friend Claire just how many clothes I have left (she was shocked by how many clothes I have) she thinks that I have enough to keep me going for at least another month. I actually think it could be longer!

Today I'm wearing a maxi dress from Debenhams, I think it is an AX Paris one but not entirely sure as I have taken the label out as it was itching my back last time I wore it. The bracelet is a present off Chris' nan, the locket is Topshop and the star necklace is Tiffanys.

Whilst I'm typing this blog I am watching Runaway Bride a classic chick flick : ) and eating a cheese and cheese & onion crisp sandwich, yum yum! I used to eat this when I was at Uni. It is not the healthiest lunch but Claire and I got through 3 bottles of pink fizz and 2 bottles of white wine last night! I need something to soak up the booze.

August 27th 2011

Good afternoon : )

I have spent the morning doing my wifely duty as Chris calls it and have been cleaning the house. It not my favourite past time but it did needing doing before Clur Bur gets here.

Today I am wearing a vintage George dress and River Island kitten heels.I love the ice cream sundaes on this dress although it is making me want ice cream.

I'm watching re-runs of Made in Chelsea while I'm writing this. It is quite bad it is slightly good. Although, they are all so wooden if any of them sparks up a fag I fear the whole cast would go up in smoke : )

Right well I better get ship shape and orderly for my guest's arrival. As Made in Chelsea would say tootle pip! Ta ta for now.

August 26th 2011


Whoo hoo it's Friday. I have definitely now got that Friday feeling : ) The cider is in the fridge and I've got the Haribo on standby bring on the bank holiday!

I have got one of my best friends coming down from Manchester tomorrow for a girly catch up, I can't wait!

Today I am wearing a Primark top, Next jeans and Primark ballet shoes.

August 25th 2011

Today is exactly 9 months til I get married! That is quite a scary thought so much to do in so little time.

Last night I went to see One Day, it was amazing. I loved it : ) Anne's Yorkshire accent was pretty bad but they captured the essence of the book perfectly.I was crying at the end along with about 100 other people. I had a costume change to go to the cinema. I wore my Red or Dead T-shirt and John Rocha skirt.


Today has been a very busy one, I am so tired and cannot wait for this bank holiday weekend. As I was feeling quite lazy I wore the same John Rocha skirt, an Oasis T-shirt, Oasis watch and Primark sandals. It is quite a hippish look, but you can't beat a bit of tie-dye now and again.


Right night night peeps I'm off to bed : )

August 24th 2011



Good evening!

Today has been a busy one and it is not even over yet. I'm off to the cinema in a bit to see One Day. I am tres excited, I just hope it is as good as the book. The only thing I'm concerned about is whether Anne Hathaway will be able to pull off a Yorkshire accent.

Today I am wearing a vintage Primark jacket, a scarf from Prague (it was a present off my pappy!), a vintage Primark waist belt, H&M dress and Tesco flats.

Lastly a big thanks to all my followers. I am up to 1000 hits for the month and I have even had reader from across the pond which is AMAZING!

I'll let you know what the film is like.

August 23rd 2011


I am in an extremely good mood today : ) I got an email last night saying that I had won a luxury spa break for 2 worth £400! Get in!!!!! This has really brightened up my day. This is twice now that I have won something through Glamour magazine, last time it was some Olay moisturiser. Glamour is my bible, I have had every single issue since it started way back in 2001. I highly recommend checking out their website for their daily competitions.


The place I am going to be staying at is called Armathwaite Hall.
http://www.armathwaite-hall.com/


Today I am wearing a River Island dress and DP leggings. I like to think that this dress pays homage to the Aztec trend, plus I like the dangly tassels.



I found the most amazing Christmas jumper today, I'm thinking about getting it in ready : ) It even has pom poms on it!

August 22nd 2011


Well it’s the start of a brand new week and it also means that it’s bank holiday this weekend, whoo hoo 4 day week next week : ) It does mean that summer is almost over, (not that we have had much of a summer) it also means that it is nearly time to get the winter wardrobe ready. I may even start looking for a Christmas jumper!

Today isn’t a very summery outfit but then I am in the office all day so it’s not like I’ll be sunning myself : (

The culottes are Tesco and the T-shirt is from Primark. As you can see I have also brushed my hair finally. It took ages to brush out all the back combing and hair spray from Saturday but I got there eventually.

August 19th and 20th 2011

First of all, I am very sorry to have not posted on here for a few days. It has been quite a busy couple of days. On Friday I went out after work for Sarah's leaving do, nothing too heavy just a few drinks. Well that was the plan anyway, I felt a little rough on Saturday morning.

I wore a bargain of a skirt that I picked up in Warehouse, it was £7 instead of £40 : )The top is Primark and so are the heels.


Yesterday was my lovely friend Victoria's wedding. It was a perfect day, the weather was lovely, her dress was impeccable and the setting was stunning. A beautiful day all round. It makes me a little bit more excited about my own upcoming nuptials in May.

For this momentous occasion I wore a yellow dress from Oasis, my nude wedges and striped bag were from ASOS and my headband was from Debenhams. I even got a hairdresser to come to the house to put my hair up.


I would show you what I wore today but I am still in my nightie, I have no make up on and I haven't brushed my hair. I am what you would call a sight for sore eyes : )

Chris and I have had a very chilled day, we have barely moved from the sofa apart to get food from the kitchen. At the moment he is rustling up some hot dogs for us, yum yum!

Sunday evening already folks so enjoy what is left of the weekend; and to my friends Victoria and Andrew congratulations on getting married!!

August 18th 2011


Whoop whoop I am off work today. I have been pretending to be a lady of leisure, I could easily get used to it : )

Please excuse the face today I have no make up on as I'm off to get my brows and lashes done this afternoon in preparation of wedding of the year 2011 (Vic and Andy'as wedding)

Today is an explosion of Primark, the maxi dress, the skinny belt, the sunglasses and the sandals (which you can't see as I'm a midget) are all from Primark. The only thing that isn't is my earrings which are Topshop.

August 17th 2011


It’s Wednesday and that means it’s hump day. Now I’m not talking about the dirty. I mean we’re over the hump and closer to the weekend.

Today I have gone for dressed down Wednesday. The converse style trainers are from a shop at the Trafford Centre called Quiz, they were a couple of quid BARGAIN! The jeans are from Next, the blouse is from Primark, the dice earrings are from Vegas and the charm bracelet is Tiffany and Co.

The dice earrings from Vegas!!

I'm having a Tapas evening with other half tonight, yummy food and wine, I can't wait. Have a great evening people : )

August 16th 2011



My outfit for today is unravelling before my eyes! Damn you beaded top, the balls are going all over my desk! I now have a little collection of beads : (

Don’t get me wrong this top has lasted, I’m just a little bit gutted as my sewing ability is pretty poor.

The top itself is from Tesco as are the leggings. The shoes are Primark and the earrings are from Accessorize.

I need to get some motivation to do some exercise, I really can't be bothered but I know I need to do it if I want to shape up. Can someone please give some motivation??

August 15th 2011


Hello Monday!

I am still alive and kicking after my jammed packed weekend. I think I will be detoxing this week until Friday that is when I have a leaving do followed by a wedding on the Saturday.
Today I have gone for a lovely lacy Primark dress, I like the little sleeves on this it helps hide the bingo wings slightly : ) The grey wedges are Tesco.

Before I forget any feedback on the outfits is greatly appreciated, try not to be too nasty though : )

August 13th and 14th 2011

Today's blog is a double entry, what a treat! Yesterday was my lovely friend Victoria's hen do, we went to Chester and learnt how to make cocktails in the Living Room and then had a scrummy meal there before moving onto Pitcher and Piano. It was a lovely evening : )

For the occasion I wore a pleated River Island maxi skirt, with a yellow River Island cropped top, Primark heels and Tesco clutch. I love the skirt it is sooo pretty  : )




Today has been quite a typical Sunday, bacon butties and recovering on the sofa, doing the food shopping, washing the car and to top it off we're off to my mum's in a bit for a roast dinner. Yum yum I can't wait : )

Today my dress is vintage New Look. Word of advice don't try cleaning wheels in it, it does not work unless you want to flash your neighbours!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday whatever you are up to.

August 12th 2011



I went to a 70s themed party last night so I’ve put together my own 70s inspired outfit. The hat is H&M and I absolutely love it! The dress is Primark with it’s awesome sleeves. Knee high socks are vintage and the wedges are H&M.

Unfortunately my flicks did not stay Farah like all night : )

The other half was wearing the same outfit the night we met. I’m not saying he is a dodgy dresser, but it was 70s themed party that we met at. He was wearing an afro and I had a long dodgy blonde wig on. It was love at first sight : )

August 11th 2011


This comes a little later than normal due to the fact I was naughty and went out on a school night  : ) I went straight from work in this outfit to go watch a band. They were called The Lines, they were pretty good and they make good sandwiches : ) That's what happens when you go with people that know the band they will make you food. 

So yesterday I have opted to wear some heels, generally in the week I wear flats to work as you may have noticed but I thought screw it : )



The wedges are H&M, the starry culottes are from Tesco as is the black top. I have my Vegas dice earrings in today which were a present off mother. I’m hoping they are lucky dice.

August 10th 2011


What a couple of days it has been. The images and footage I have seen you would think that it has come out of 28 days later or some apocalyptic film! These are very scary times.

Today I have gone for a Tesco maxi dress with a Primark blouse and the bracelet is from Boots. I love this blouse with its horse shoes on.

Tonight I've seen my Mum who has been living it up in America for the last two weeks. I am very jealous, she has been to Vegas, Memphis and Nashville. She has bought some yankie doodle goodies back with her, good times   : )

August 9th 2011


Today I am wearing a vintage Primark dress, Topshop necklace, Oasis cardie and Faith boots. Today I would say I’m channelling a little lady like grunge. I like this dress as it is quite floaty, the only downside is that when a gust of wind gets hold of it you’re flashing everything. Thank god I tend to wear black tights : )
To anyone that is reading this who are caught up in the riots across the country, I hope you are all ok. I really hope this gets sorted out sooner rather than later. I can't believe people have been looting Primark for £1 socks! The world really has gone mad.

Anyway to finish a big thank you to our emergency services that are trying to keep our country civilised and in one piece. We love you all!

August 8th 2011




Happy one week of blogging to me! 


Monday Already. I think the slogan on my T-shirt just sums up the day. I wouldn't say that it is an anti- drugs T-shirt more a pro pugs T-shirt : )

I really want a pug but the other half won’t let me : ( He thinks they look like dogs that have been hit in the face with a frying pan. If anyone would like to give me a pug please free to contact me, he can’t say no if I already have one.

Anyway back to the clothes. The pug T-shirt is from Topshop and the black skinny jeans are from Oasis.

August 7th 2011

Today has been quick a relaxed day, I have been to a Pool Hall where I got my ass whipped at pool and darts; and I'm now eating hot dogs and watching Lethal Weapon 1. I can't believe the weekend has already passed : (

As it was quite a relaxed day my clothing reflected this. I wore a black jewelled H&M top, my old faithful Primark shorts, an Ethel Austin cardie and cream Tesco flats.

August 6th 2011

Today is Saturday which means shopping time! Well I try to restrain myself as I could easily end up putting myself in thousands of pounds worth of debt and possibly owning everything in Primark.

Today I'm wearing a quite relaxed outfit. My trousers are Topshop, my T-Shirt is French Connection and my ballet pumps are Primark. You may notice a trend that nearly every outfit contains some Primark : )

Yesterday my Ebay bargain arrived. I snapped up this lovely REISS bag for a fraction of the price. I am what they call a bargain hunter; I love rooting for the best bargains I can get.

August 5th 2011



Woo Hoo it’s Friday and Friday means fun day.

Today has been a cake off in work which means we have all been stuffing ourselves ridiculously with cakes; it has been great. Although it is not good for my wedding diet. I have 9 months til I get married I need to get my arse in gear!

Today I am wearing a Dorothy Perkins lace dress, with old trusty Primark leggings, Tesco leopard print pumps and a bargain JRM bag from TK Maxx.

I love the dog on this bag : )

August 4th 2011

Shock horror! I am actually writing this in the morning before work. For some reason I actually have time to spare; normally I am running round like a headless chicken.

Today's ensemble is quite tame I think for my outfits. A John by John Rocha skirt, turquoise River Island vest with a Dorothy Perkins black vest. The star necklace was a birthday present last year off a few of my bestests.

Hope you all have a great day : )
