Primark Purchases - Red & Checks!

Hiya everyone

I really am sorry for my lack of posts I need to get my act together and find some inspiration from somewhere! 

In 2 weeks its my birthday and Mike and I are off to Devon for a week, so looking forward to that as I feel like lately all I have done is work!  

Yesterday a friend of mine came to Bristol and we had a lovely catch up with lunch at Zizzi's and a spot of shopping.

I did not spend much at all really, I bought 2 items in Primark and that was it but what I did get was rather lovely.

I purchased this red fit and flare winter coat...this coat was £25 and its so nice and warm.  Its a size 10 (I have lost a bit more weight since I last blogged and am now into a size 10 :).  Its not as warm as my proper wool coat but it will be nice for autumn and to be honest I get really hot when I am walking anyway so this will be nice.

This coat fits so nicely it goes in lovely at the waist then flares out and the belt pulls your waist in even more, plus its a proper red colour (not orange, not dark red but actual proper red)!  I love this coat and it looks so much more expensive than £25.   I have 3 cream coats so I wanted a coat with some colour as well :) . 



I also purchased this check skirt which is so nice on, its ideal for work.  I admit I am not a fan of checks in fact its safe to say I hate checks BUT this skirt can be excused as its just so lovely and style is really nice.  This was only £6.00...and its a bargain.



I have also made a couple of online orders too which I shall tell you about when I receive them.

I will be catching up on all your blogs tonight.

Take care

All the fun at the Vintage Fair

Hello everyone

Last Saturday they had Lou Lou's Vintage Fair on in Bristol so myself and a Friend decided to go and have a look around.  It was only £2.00 entry and it was really good with loads of people selling a lot of vintage clothing and some home goods and jewellery.   They also had a rather lovely tea and cake stall and the cakes looked amazing, especially with the vintage tea sets.  

I ended up buying 2 tops and some earrings.  

The first top is probably not to everyone's taste but I love these little tie detail tops and have not got any in my wardrobe.  I love the lace in fact I just love everything about it.  Its going to be one of those little tops I can put on with so many things in summer...its adorable, so girly and feminine and so very me!






The 2nd top is so pretty I love this too.




My friend and I had lunch In Weatherspoons which was rather nice although very busy but it turned about to be a lovely few hours.  I later found out later that the lovely Dawn O'Porter was there! I adore her she always looks so gorgeous,  just wished I had bumped into her! 

Yesterday Mike and I had to pop into town,I somehow managed to accidentally drop my phone down the toilet!!! eek...typical me, only I could do that!   Luckily I now have a new phone.

After we sorted  that out I could not have gone into town without popping into Primark.  I did not buy much though, I did however purchase this fake fur scarf/snood to wear with my winter coats. Its so nice and warm and I love the colour.  



I also purchased a little mirror for my handbag and some tights.  To be honest I have not bought much lately however I have my eye on a little ASOS dress in the sale which I may be purchasing!!!




Candle for the bathroom, nothing beats having a bath by candlelight when the nights get colder...only £2.00!



Mike and I ended up having lunch in our favourite little italian restaurant :) 


Have a lovely weekend
