Naughty New Look....!

I am loving loads of things at New Look at the moment and although I said I am short on money this month...I could not resist.

Skater dress (not sure what this will be like but I love the style)

Stripe bow tunic

Candy bow pumps

Saturday, 30 January 2010


I love bows, bows in my hair, bow earrings, bows on dresses and cardigans...practically anything with bows. I think I will be wearing bows a lot over the coming spring/summer.

I cannot afford to spend much this month as my car broke down and has cost me loads to get fixed and also my car tax is due...!

Today I brought a few bits:

This bow hairband in pink and also in black from New Look.

Pink basic top from H&M, I love this shade of pink its really pretty. It will be a great top for layering. Also some black leggings H&M.

Bow hair slides

I am looking forward to next Saturday as a friend is coming over and we are going out for lunch and shopping. She has recently been to a wedding in India and I would love to go to an Indian wedding, they look so colourful and lovely.

I cannot wait to see her photos.

Also it will be great to catch up and do some more retail therapy. I love shopping with my girl friends.

I have also posted some pictures of my new caramel coloured boots, they are so comfy and I love the colour.

Hope you are all having a nice weekend.

H&M buys

Today, I popped out and ended up buying a few little goodies in H&M.

Knitted Stripe dress/tunic (looks really nice on)

Taupe bow belt

Hello Kitty make up bag ( I love hello kitty!)

Whilst I was in H&M I saw a pair of leopard print pumps only £7.99 and I really want them but they did not have my size only large sizes...arghh! I am going to go to town next week and have a look for them as there is a bigger H&M there. Plus I need to get a nude coloured vest for under my lovely georgette top....I think Primark will be good for that!

Anyway then into M&S as I have a £20 gift card and I brought these boots from the Limited Collection. I don't really shop in M&S!

They are like a caramel colour (nicer than the pic) and honestly look so much better quality in real life than in the picture.

Then into Boots where I brought some make up and a No7 nail polish for £1.25 as I had a £5 off voucher.

Recently I have developed eczema on my neck...lovely! I feel so sorry for anyone who suffers with this badly as I only have a few small patches and it so itchy and sore. So a bit of this should help, I just hope it does not get any worse. They say there is a link to hayfever, eczema and asthma. Well I developed hayfever 2 years ago and now eczema and my dad suffers with bad asthma which developed in his 30's so I am a bit worried it may happen to me!

And finally I want to give my best wishes to the lovely Gracie of who is getting married tomorrow.

I hope you and Jason have a wonderful day, you will make a gorgeous bride.

Update on the New Look order

It came today and I love it all,

The ruffle top is so gorgeous and it comes to the top of my thighs so I could wear it with jeggings/leggings.

The purse is lovely too.

I like the Breton top it is high necked but for £10 I think its a bargain.

Last weeks buys!

Oh well my La Redoute order came and I am so disappointed. The petal pink dress was like a baggy tent and it looks 2 sizes bigger than what I ordered.! The cream knit dress is like a granny's thermal nightdress, plus to make matters worse it has a massive hole in the front!
Both going back! I don't think I will be ordering from them again!

Well today I went to the hairdresses for my usual trim I am thinking about going slightly darker just to make my hair more glossy.

I picked up a few things this week:

I got this [pinstripe skirt for work, its a really nice fit. (not sale)

This top in the sale for £3.00 which I thought I may wear with a high waisted black skirt, waist belt and cardi for work.

This bag from Accessorize I love the little heart clasp I have only one black bag and thought this would be nice for nights out and its across the body too.

I also ordered these cute little earrings on ASOS as they were on Moni's blog I think they are lovely.

There are loads of stuff on New Look's website I am loving at the mo there may be an order going through soon ! tut tut

What are you all up to this weekend?

Kimberley Walsh...just so lovely!

I know eveyone seems to love Cheryle Cole and she seems to be the golden girl of Girls Aloud and don't get me wrong I think she is absolutely stunning but I think Kimberley is just as stunning.

These photos of her are amazing and I think it just goes to show you don't have to be like a stick to be beautiful. She has such a lovely figure and she is rocking that gold dress.

I love Kimberley I think she is so sincere and down to earth and totally and utterly stunning but in a more natural way.

While I am on this subject I think if I had to look like anyone in the world (besides Adriana Lima who is just an utter beauty) I am a tad obsessed with this ASOS model.

Every single time I see her on the website I am drawn to her she is just so you think she is airbrushed! Go on tell me so and make me feel better.

La Redoute dresses

I don't usually buy from La Redoute but I had a code for £15 off and ordered these:

Petal Pink Vest dress

This would be lovely for summer to wear with leggings/jeggings or alone.
I think the 'Petal Pink' appealed to me too lol

Ivory Knit dress

Not 100% sure about this (it looks a bit shapeless) but I thought it would be nice and may go back!

What do you think of La Redoute?

Lately I also brought:

Miss Selfridge Floral Butterflies earrings ( they look a lot better irl)...cute!

and this jumper, I love the colour and the sleeves.

Born Free

I feel so happy and overwhelmed when you see a lion or tiger that has been in captivity released back into the wild.....such an emotional and happy feeling. I really admire people who work for such organisations.

The beach

There is nothing better than the sound of the sea crashing against the shore and the seagulls. The smell of ice cream and chips.
