Torquay Treats


Well its been a while....I went away last weekend to Birmingham with a friend, we had a really great time.  I bought quite a few things but will have to blog about this in another post  as I am quite behind with my posts.

Its hard to believe we were in Torquay just over 2 weeks ago as as it seems like months!  Its also weird to think its christmas in 4 weeks! eek  I must really start my Christmas shopping.  I have bought a couple of things but still have a way to go!

Whilst we were in Torquay one day we had a look around the shops and I purchased a few little treats.

It was the Debenhams 25% off week so I bought a couple of christmas presents and Mike bought me a Cream knitted style dress from the Pussycat range in Debenhams.

I don't think these photos do this dress justice.  Its really soft and warm, its like a brushed cotton material,

 I also got two lovely bras from the Gorgeous range at Debenhams.,

In H&m I purchased this floral dress which I really love,  its very short but ts really flattering and a-line style.  Perfect for wearing with a chunky knit cardigan.

In New Look I purchased these gold glitter shoes, they are not as high as the usual sky scrapers around but just a nice height and look gorgeous on.  I wore these on Saturday night in Birmingham, :)

Also in New Look I got this bird print crochet dress, you cannot beat bird print. :) 

Anyway thats all for now.  I have got my Birmingham haul post coming up soon.

I am also going to be doing a giveaway very soon its just I have not got around to getting everything as yet! 

Take care

Home Sweet Home - purchases

Hello everyone

Well I am back from our fabulous week in Torquay, we had such a great time.  I really don't want to go back to work next week though :(.   Still I have next weekend to look forward to as I am going away with a friend to Birmingham for the weekend.  Plus 5 weeks today we are off to Blackpool to spend Christmas with my family this year.

Before we went away I bought a few new things for the home

I was in my new favourite shop, TK Maxx and stumbled upon this.....I instantly knew this would look gorgeous in our bedroom as I have the 'shabby chic' theme going on :)

I also really wanted a nice little chest of drawers and something that would fit right in with the room.  I have had my eye on the Toulouse bedroom furniture at Dunelm Mill and decided to order the 3 drawer chest.  Its perfect for what I want plus it comes ready assembled...I hate flat pack furniture!  It looks so gorgeous in our room and looks really expensive and nice quality.

Then in Tesco Homeplus I purchased these cake tins, the smaller one I am using as a biscuit tin...they are so pretty.

and I also pickedup this dvd looking forward to watching this

Plus I bought a vanilla Yankee Candle...they smell delicious.

Take care

Birthday Girl

Hello everyone

Its finally the weekend and I have a whole week off work...yay :) 

Its my birthday tomorrow and we are also off to Devon tomorrow as well to stay in a nice hotel and be pampered for a few days.
I really need this at the moment I have been so stressed out of late with my father being ill and now my mother may have health problems too.  Its a worrying time so I need a bit of de-stressing.

When I come back I am in work for a week then I am going to Birmingham with a close friend for the weekend.  So at least I have that to look forward to as well.

I purchased these lovely boots from Asda in the week, they are really nice.  Asda do sell some lovely items and at low prices.

Also thank you for all your comments on my previous post I think Gold is the way to go then. I realised that I have this cream and gold Julien Macdonald Clutch bag that a friend bought me which will save me buying a gold bag and it matches the dress perfectly!

I am not going to be wearing tights just a bit of Sally Hansen Airbrush legs as the dress is not miniscule so therefore not too short.  I also have these gold studded heels but to be honest not sure they look right with the outfit so I really want some closed toe sparkly gold shoes so may have a look around for some anyway.  I saw some gorgeous ones in Dorothy Perkins with quite a low price tag :) 

Well thats all for now but I will be back after my birthday/Devon.

Have a lovely weekend

Please help me style this dress


I am going on a night out in a few weeks and I saw this dress in Select of all shops.  I think its really classy looking.  It actually looks a lot nicer on as its very figure fitting.  The dress is plain black with cream crochet which has a tiny bit of gold detailing in.  Sorry the photo is not that big and if I make it bigger it goes rather blurry :(

 I was thinking of styling it with gold sparkly shoes and a gold oversized clutch bag and maybe a gold necklace but then I was thinking I do tend to wear nude/tan shoes and thought maybe I should try something more daring like red heels and a red bag?

What do you think?

I don't want to spend a lot though as I don't go out that much so won't wear the shoes much, that's why I thought gold would be ideal as I could wear them to christmas parties etc.

I would love to hear your thoughts?

A little bird told me.....

that I had to have these earrings when I saw them in a cute little dress shop in town.  At only £2.50 they were a must!

I am loving all things animal,  I love all the cat, fox and squirrel things around at the moment.  While Mike and I was in Asda at the weekend I saw these cute little nightshorts with ginger cats all over.  

 I went off to look at something and Mike went and bought them for me.  I bought a cute little burgundy vest top in the nightwear section of Primark to match for only £2.50 and its probably one of my favourite nightwear sets.

Are you loving animals designs around at the moment?
