He has been out in the snow but he makes me laugh as he hates walking on the snow, well you can hardly blame him! He literally runs across the snow so fast as if something is chasing him! Mind you he looks totally gorgeous against the white backdrop.
How have your pets been coping with this snowy weather?

Tuesday I wore said coat again and as I put it on another button fell off in my hand and then another fell off!!! Don't get me wrong it was only £35 so you do get what you pay for but still I don't think this should happen. Plus I noticed that after wearing it once the material looked in bad condition. Yesterday I took it back to New Look and they gave me a refund and I decided to have a browse around and ended up buying another coat in H&M.
I brought this red military style coat which fits really well and red does really suit me. It was more expensive at £50.00 but its a much nicer coat and the material is really nice.
I think the photo makes it look cheap but its a much nicer red in reality.
Then I brought this purple headband from Primark, this is to wear with the purple dress below for my works black tie christmas party.
This is so flattering.

We had a fabulous time in Birmingham yesterday.
I brought a few items using money I was given for my birthday:
Cream knit Dress - this is so flattering....I love it.
This is the bottom part up close
Pink ribbed knitted tunic - this is also really flattering, its very stretchy and looks great with jeggings/leggings.
Camel Pea style coat
Ditsy floral purse
Pearl dangly earrings
Navy blue dress - this is also really flattering I am going to wear it to work with a long sleeved top or fitted shirt under, opaque tights and heels/boots.
Red pumps - I love these the colour is gorgeous
Floral bag - this was £3.00 in the sale.
Nail varnish set (this is part of a xmas present for another friend)
My friend and I went to Jamie Olivers new restaurant in the Bullring. The service was great and the food was gorgeous. It opened at 12 so we got there for 10 mins to 12 as we were starving and there was a queue already forming.
This is a photo of my lovely friend on the balcony (sorry its not great quality) but you can see the queue outside!

Mike and I had the day off today so we went to Clarks Village in Somerset.
I wore my cream knitted dress, with cream long sleeved top under, dark blue jeggings and tan boots.
If you have never been there before this is one of those designer outlet places. We had such a fab day we had lunch in an oldie style village pub which was lovely and I had Melt in the middle hot chocolate pudding with chocolate ice cream for dessert.... yummy.
Michael brought me this bag from Fiorelli. I love the daisies and the design.
I brought 4 bras in La Senza for £10 as they were £5.00 each and buy one get one free, they are gorgeous bras especially the first two but they were just end of stock so thats why they were so cheap.
Have you been watching I'm a Celebrity?? I must admit I am finding Gillian McKeith very annoying and she is one strange lady.
Its early days but I am really liking Kayla at the moment she seems so sweet and Stacey also seems very sweet too.
Sheryl seems really nice and Linford is funny.
I could never ever go on this show I am so jumpy and I would not even be able to sleep one night in there. I am such a wimp!
I am so looking forward to the weekend as my friend is coming up Friday night and we are going to Birmingham on Saturday.

Last night Michael and I went to a birthday party with Mike's brother and his fiancee.
This is my outfit:
Navy Blue ruffle front dress - H&M
Grey patent skinny belt - Primark
Grey Patent heels - Matalan
Necklace & earrings from New Look
Well I had a nice birthday although I had to work.
I had mainly money and vouchers.
I got brought this dress by my mum from a shop called Apricot, it looks lovely on and a lot better than the photo, my parents also gave me some money too.
I had vouchers from my work colleagues and one friend brought me this bag from H&M which I love.
Yesterday Mike went to watch his beloved football team and I popped out to some local shops being Matalan, Next Clearance and TJ Hughes.
I did not buy anything though just had a little browse. I am not a big fan of Next at all and the clearance shop is even worse but they do have the occasional bargain.
Today Mike is off to watch rugby with his brother so I am going to have a lazy day and maybe do some housework and have a clear out. I am also going to catch up on everyones blogs.
Tomorrow Mike and I both have the day off and Mike is taking me out shopping for my birthday.
Before I forget I will be doing my giveaway but I need to get a couple more items before I do it, therefore its a bit delayed!
Well I am off now to observe the two minutes silence for Remembrance Sunday. My thoughts are with all the guys and girls who were injured or have lost their lives fighting in wars. And also to the guys and girls still fighting a war.

Hope everyone had a great bonfire night, I am not keen on fireworks to be honest however they look great in a proper display.
Thomas was really scared last night plus he has a cold at the moment, the poor little mite hid under the bed, he feels safe there. I ended up taking his food up to him as he was under there for hours.I don't know if any of you receive the New Look free magazine but at the back they have some money off vouchers. They had one for £10 off a £40.00 shop, I popped into New Look on Friday and ended up buying a few things:
Cream Fairisle knitted dress which I plan to wear how the girl is wearing it in the picture but with a cream/white basic top and tan/nude skinny belt.
The dress had 20% off so that was £17 and the boots were £25.00 and I had £10 off as it was over £40.00. I paid using paypal funds so therefore I did not actually spend any real money!
Yesterday I started the day with a Step class which was very invigorating.
I got home and hubby took me out to the local shopping mall, we ended up stopping in Pizza Hut for lunch. This is what I wore:
Cream Lace Dress - New Look
Leggings - Next
Tan Boots - New Look
Long navy cardi - Primark
Tan Belt - Primark
Whilst there I could not resist popping into Republic as they have 25% off everything today and tomorrow and I purchased this pink corsage handbag for my friend as its her 30th birthday today.
She is in Thailand at the moment with her boyfriend and is due back today. She lives a few miles from me so I won't be seeing her until 2 weeks time when she will be coming to mine for a girlie night in and I will be cooking a pasta dish, I am also going to make her a special chocolate brownie. The next day we are going to Birmingham to go shopping! Luckily she does not read my blog so any surprises won't be spoilt!
I will probably get her some jewellery to go with it.
Its my birthday on Wednesday which is when I shall blog about my little giveaway.
Just to let you you all know regarding the Simply Spray dye I purchased a while ago, I will just say its brilliant stuffl I used it to dye the dress and the only downside is that there is not much in the actual bottle so you may need 2 bottles but it really does work and its so easy to use. I will be purchasing another bottle.
