Outfit Post - Lace & Crochet!

Hiya everyone

MIke and I went out for lunch today...only to Pizza Hut but you got to love 'The Hut'! 

This was my outfit

I adore this creamy white crochet dress its from G21 at Adsa...when I first bought it a few years ago it was skintight and I could only wear it with leggings as it was so short, however since losing weight I can now wear this as a dress in summer with bare legs as its a lot longer.

Belt - this is my trusty Horse clasp belt from Primark...I wear this belt so much with various outfits!

The beige boots are from H&M

The faux leather jacket is also from G21 at Asda 

The handhag is fron New Look.  I bought it this time last year and I love this bag so so much! 

Have a lovely weekend

Small Beauty and Clothing Haul ♥

Hiya everyone

Last Friday I had an afternoon off work and thought I would have a wander around the shops.  The kids were still of school so it was pretty packed everywhere...I don't think I chose the right time.

I have a gift card from New Look that I have had since Christmas and it has quite a lot on it.  I spent some of this but still have about £80 left!

I managed to purchase this pretty 'Kelly Brook' bikini in the sales which was reduced to £10. Even though I have lost a lot of weight and down to a size 8-10 I still have a large chest!!  I love Kelly Brook bikinis as they cater for ladies over a DD cup.

I also got these New Look Indigo Jeggings, I love these I managed to get them in a size 8 and a 30 inch leg.  My old jeggings are literally rolling down now and I find them really baggy on the ankles.

In Primark I bougth the lazer cut top that I  purchased in red but in white.

Also this peach pink lace trim top 

hair bands - very Cath Kidston :) 

I also popped into Boots and had a little spree.

I wanted some fake tan, to be honest I am tanned all year around and in winter I tend to use a cheaper tan just because I don't show as much flesh.  In summer I prefer to stick to Sienna X spray tans or I buy Sienna X...I love that stuff.   I also love Sally Hansen, which I did purchase another bottle.  I usually buy the Tan Glow but thought I would try the Medium Glow. 

I think the Airbrush Legs are foolproof and it looks amazing on your legs!

I also noticed the L'Oreal Sublime Dark Tanning Gel and thought I would give it a try.  This was £12.99, not expensive for fake tan but not one of the cheaper ones either.  I will be doing a review of this very soon!

I also wanted a new mascara and was going to try one of these Maybelline mascara's 

however I ended up purchasing the 17 Doll'd Up Mascara and I have to say this is by far the best mascara I have ever used.  I cannot praise this mascara enough!

stock photo as I accidentally deleted the photo I took of it!!

I also ordered a gorgeous dress online which I shall tell you about in a seperate post.

Take care

Charity Shop Finds

Hiya everyone

  Last week I thought I would pop into my local charity shops.   I love having a mooch around charity shops and we have some really good ones not far from us!   One of them is fabulous they always have a lot of ASOS, Zara, Oasis and New Look items.

 They had loads of stuff this particular day however some of the items were a tad overpriced for second hand!  For instance they had a Zara jumper which was £12.00!! It was not even in really great condition so I thought it was way overpriced.

 I managed to bag a couple of good bargains, I got this AX Paris Daisy Print Navy dress with cut out detail.  I love this dress.

I also got this navy Espirit top, I rhought this would be lovely for summer with a navy skirt for work, I love the ruffle sleeves and the fit is really nice.

I also got this brand new with tags fake fur collar which was reduced to £1.50.

Anyway I have a half day in work tomorrow and then I am going to have a couple of hours of retail therapy.  I think a trip to Primark is in store!

Have a lovely weekend

Outfit post - New ASOS/Yumi Dress

Hiya everyone

Just a quick outfit post from me today to show you my new Yumi dress courtesy of the ASOS sale. 

This was £55 reduced to £12.00 which I thought was a bargain.  I would not have paid £55 for it I mean its nice but I am not keen on the shiny lining which I think makes it look cheaper.  Plus this is a size 10 but looks too large around the hips and tummy for me, however it fits nice on the bust.

I think its very pretty though although not as flattering as other dresses I have!  I wore it with my lovely cream cardigan from Forever 21.  I really love this cardi the material is so soft and I love the feel and the colour.  I also wore my tan bow belt...this belt gets used so much!

I wore my Next Suede cowboy boots which were a sale bargain from a couple of years ago.

I popped out today and I got a couple of lovely bargains in a local charity shop....look out for these in my next post.

Take care

Outfit post - Cami Dress!

Hiya everyone

I just thought I would do a quick outfit post

Its Saturday again, oh how I love the weekends.  I like to treat myself at the weekend as I think well I work hard all week so why not!  Mike and I went out for lunch to Pizza Hut today yummy

I decided as today was not so cold I thought I would do away with wearing tights/boots so decided to wear ballet pumps and leggings instead with my faux leather jacket, instead of a heavy coat.
I love these heavy leggings from H&M they are so thick and feel really nice and comfy too.

Faux Leather Jacket - G21 at Asda
Ditsy Cami Dress - H&M
Pink Cardigan - New Look
Heavy Leggings _ H&M
Nude Ballet Pumps - Topshop
Pink handbag - Forelli 

  I also decided to take my pink Fiorelli ruffle bag.   I totally adore this bag it was a gorgeous birthday present from a friend a couple of years ago...she knows me so well! 

Please ignore the horrible green wallpaper in the background, this is one of our spare rooms that we have not got around to decorating yet.  We call it the 'junk room' but soon to be 'Lisa's Dressing Room'.  Its literally has 2 single beds in it and I keep the ironing board and all my shoes in it.  We are going to be decorating it this year and I want to make it into my own dressing room.   I saw this wallpaper at B&Q and was thinking I would like this as a feature wall and then the other walls cream.  I am going to be making it very shabby chic! 

Anyway have a lovely weekend
