Flowers and a few small buys!

Yesterday I me up with a friend who I have not seen in ages and she has just had a baby girl Emily, she is gorgeous.
We just had coffee in M&S then wandered around a few shops I must say Emily was very well behaved and was so adorable.

I only brought a few bits and bobs.

These earrings in H&M.

No7 Nail Polish Twinkle.

Couple of lipsticks in natural colours.

Also me and OH did the dine for £10 deal in M&S and it was lovely and worth £10, the wine itself retailed at £5.99. I would definitely recommend it.

I had been feeling really down lately so when I got home my OH had surprised me with these flowers which I think you will agree are gorgeous and they are my favourite colour!

Well I have decided to post a picture of me even though my blog was meant to be anonymous so I am very apprehensive doing this but here goes.....eek
I hate photos of me but I notice other bloggers show their face so I thought I would just say hello to everyone.

Please ignore my awful hair as it does usually look better than this.

Primark haul

Well I went to the new Primark in Bristol yesterday and I have to say one word 'wow'.
It was packed but as its so big you have loads of free space to move in plus there was hardly any queues as they have 75 tills.
It was great! Usually I go in Primark and feel all stressed when I come out but not yesterday. Me and a friend spent 3 hours in there!

I brought the following:

Flat Tan boots ( I took the New Look ones back as I think the Primark ones are better)

Red Belted Mac

Teal jumper for work

Mustard Cardigan (work)

Pink jumper (work again)

Indigo cardi (the picture does not do it justice its a lovely colour and goes great with my jeggings)

Umbrella (its really cute)

also vest top and tights.

Plus new mascara in Boots

I could have spent more I saw a longline grey cardi but I will get that at a later date they also some lovely bedding....I think a trip back is due soon!!!!!

Also I ordered this Vintage Floral tee from Oli to wear tucked in with this skirt and a cardi in a/w.

YAY Autumn/Winter clothing

I am really disappointed as I received the ASOS dress today and its awful. The style suits me but its so see through and its so cheap looking, it looks like something from a market stall and nothing like the picture so I am really disappointed with ASOS at the moment.

I have been down this week as my dad is ill again and has been in hospital, he is out now though and is ok. They live miles away which makes it worse really. Therefore I have not done much this week.

Had to go to the doctors as well as I have a mole on my arm that is raised and has darker speckles in so therefore the doctor has sent me for a test at my local hospital. Its not until next week but I think its ok just trying not to worry as its probably nothing.

Well to cheer myself up I have ordered this jacket from Freemans, I have always wanted a tan leather bomber and it was only £40 but I am not sure about the colour as it is very pale but with free postage its worth having a lookie.

I also ordered this cardigan from Oli, I have wanted a longline pink cardi for a while and think this is such a pretty colour.

Yay autumn/winter is approaching, I always think clothes are much nice in a/w.

I love wearing little dresses with opaques, leggings/jeggings and boots etc.

My wishlist for this a/w are:

Cream wool coat
Longline grey cardigan
Purple pumps
Red pumps
Purple heels for work
Fitted jumpers for work
Knee length grey skirt for work
Longline tunic/jumper
Opaques (which I have loads of) but would love to try some cream 80 denier ones like these and maybe grey!

Have any of you ladies got any cream opaques and how do you wear them?
