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

♥ Primark, H&M ,Select & Waterstones Haul ♥

Hiya everyone


Sorry I have not posted for a while its just been so hectic at work and then most evenings I am too tired to do anything!



I just thought I would show you all what I have been buying over the past few weeks. 


♥Primark♥
.





I love this cardigan, they also had it in black but I preferred the creamy colour







The colour and feel of this cardigan is so nice especially considering it was only £8.00.  The colour was called 'Rose' on the label and it has scalloped edging.  Its really pretty and very stretchy.  Love this.








Pretty earrings - I especially love the flower ones!




I bought this as I had an idea to wear it under a black pinafore dress for work, it was only £3.50.  I wore it to work like this the other day and it looked really nice. I also bought this in plain white, these tops are so nice and versatile. 


♥Select♥










This dress is like a geo print lace dress, its white which I know is not ideal for winter but I love the fact this is a bit longer so just above the knee on me and I have this idea of wearing it with long tan boots. I have seen a few outfits like this and thought how nice it looked.   







This dress was only £5 because a button had come off but there was a spare button on it so I just sewed it on.  Its very pretty and can be worn in winter with chunky cardigan and boots.  You can tell its not very well made as the hem border part is a bit wonky but when its on it does not show so much. 


♥H&M♥




Navy blue textured skater dress, this is such nice quality and feels like a more heavier fabric which is ideal for winter.  I will definitely be wearing this one to work.  





Also not something I buy much is t-shirt/tops mainly because in the past I always thought they would show too much flab but since losing quite a lot of weight I have really gotten into t-shirt/tops and fitted jumpers.  In the past if I wore skinny jeans I would always wear longline tops and a cardigan to cover my bottom but since my bottom is a lot smaller now I have had the confidence to go out without a cardigan.  





♥Waterstones♥



I just had to pick up the latest in the Shopaholic series, I have the whole collection and so I purchased this one.  Cannot wait to read it :) 



What have you been buying lately?

Bath buys

Hiya everyone

While we were in Bath on Monday I did purchase a few little treats.  In Debenhams I purchased these rather cute Cat print Pj's.  These are so comfy, they were a lot more expensive than your average Primark PJ's but the quality and fit is so lovely...not to mention the cute cat print and I was sold!  I cannot wait for it to get colder so I can wear these, they look really nice on and feel all cosy and warm :) 






Whenever I go to Bath I like to pop into CK.  I wanted to get a shopper bag that I could use to take my lunch to work and for general bits & bobs.  I love this as you can fold it up and keep it in your handbag for when you need it.  I also love the bird and floral print.




In Primark I bought a pair of my trusty nude ballet pumps.  I wear these a lot and at only £4.00 they are great. 



What do you think of my buys?

A Day trip to Bath


Hello everyone

Mike and I have a few days off this week so today we got the train to Bath for a few hours.  It only takes 25 minutes from Bristol so its not far at all.

We did a bit of shopping, I did not spend loads but did get a couple of lovely things.  Will post about this another time!

Here are some photos:

Bath Abbey, such a beautiful building


The Guildhall


Cath Kidston shop :) 



Love the name of the shop so took a photo ha ha



These photos were taken down by the river






Bath Park



How gorgeous is this!



View from Graze Restaurant and Bar, we did not eat there we just had a drink.  We ate in Pizza Hut of all places...I love a bit of Pizza Hut though :) 



I wanted to get some photos of the Pump Rooms but there was like a million gazillion tourists outside so it was rather pointless.

Oh well it was such a lovely day and so nice to spend it together and not be in work :) 

I think tomorrow we are planning on going to watch The Inbetweeners 2 and maybe some lunch out again!!!

Outfit post - Ditsy Florals

Hiya everyone

Its the weekend again...yay and I have a few days off work next week....bigger YAY! 

I thought I would just do a quick outfit post







Floral Mini Dress  - H&M

Tan Belt - Primark

Suede boots - H&M


Today I helped out at a local jumble sale that my mother in law runs.  The bonus about helping out as you get first picks and I managed to grab quite a few bargains at 30p per item.  

I managed to get some Topshop skinny jeans for 30p! I also managed to get a Mango knitted dress which was brand new with tags, a few other dresses, skirts and tops.  Anyway I will blog about these purchases in a separate post.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

NOTD - Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days - Nude Rose


Hello everyone

On Saturday we were in Morrisons doing some shopping and I noticed Maybelline had £1.00 off their nail polishes.  I saw the Nude Rose and thought how pretty it looked.



I am so glad I purchased this as I adore the colour, its definitely one to add to my favourites collection!  This was with 2 coats.

The thing I found different with this polish is the brush is so thick, its actually a bit too thick for smaller nails but it does give a lovely coverage and glides on very nicely.




Have you tried the Maybelline Super Stay 7 Day polish?

I wonder if it actually lasts 7 days!
