Homeware purchases - Tesco & B&M.

Hiya everyone

Firstly I just want to say thankyou for all your lovely comments on my previous post.  I do feel much better and don't eat even half the junk I used to it.  :) 

Well christmas is just over a week away and I am almost prepared. Yesterday we popped out to buy a christmas tree and then I met up with a friend for coffee...well in my case a hot chocolate!! I ended up buying a few items in B&M Bargains...I love this shop..

Firstly about a month ago I bought this gorgeous duvet cover from Tesco.  I love the fact that one side is this ditsy patchwork look..........

and the other side is a full ditsy design.  I have a few duvets now but I like to change them weekly otherwise I get bored with the same design.

In B&M bargains I saw this cute jewellery storage...I must admit I loved it but looking at it I wondered if it was a bit too 'girlie'....but I think its really pretty and goes well in our shabbychic style bedroom.

I also bought this notebook for my handbag....very Cath Kidston!

I have also been taking advantage of the early clothing sales and bagged some bargains which I shall post about very soon!  I do need new clothes as my old ones are too big now!  

Take care

Outfit Post: Casual Saturday & weightloss photos

Hi everyone

So sorry for the lack of posts but I have seriously lost my blogging mojo at the moment.  I really need to get back into it!

Well here we are in December, this year has just flown by.  

So what have I been up to lately...well I had my works xmas party last week which was really fab.  I wish it had been a bit nearer to christmas as it feels more festive then but it was a really good night.

Last Saturday I decided to have a major clear out.  I have lost more weight and am now easily into a size 10...can get an 8 in some things.  Trouble is once you start losing weight you want to lose more and more. 

I wore this outfit on Saturday...going back this time last year I was around 2 stone heavier and I would never have worn jeggings with a jumper like this as I would feel too conscious of rolls of fat....
I am a lot happier in myself now.

I love this cream jumper from H&M I also have it in red.  It has like a pointelle detail on the top and sleeved and a lace running along the top.

Cream Jumper - H&M

Blue Jeggings - New Look

Tan leather boots - Schuh

Just to show my weightloss this was me in July 2013....such a big difference!

I have been xmas shopping too and have got quite a few things now. 

 I have also bought a few things for me too, will show these in a seperate post. The trouble is I used to have about 6 winter coats and all of them are too big for me now, its annoying as I love them all!  Also all my jeans are too big now too. I bought a dress in Forever 21 and got a small, was pretty chuffed if I am honest as F21 is very small sizing. :)  

Next Saturday a friend and I are off to watch the local pantomine, Ashleigh and Pudsey from BGT are in it...ha ha!  Its nice to get into the xmas spirit :) 

Take care

Holiday haul

Hiya everyone

As I mentioned in a previous post I purchased a few winter and items while I was in Devon.

Debenhams had their 25% off and I fell in love with this dress. Its from the Pussycat range.  I do love this label.
I love everything about this dress, its an ideal winter dress and I love the embroidery.

In New Look I purchased these 2 skirts both for work.

Also in the sale area I picked up this Apricot Floral Shirt dress.  Its one of those dresses you can wear in winter with tights but also in summer with sandals.

and I got these shoes for a fiver.  These are most definitely summer shoes but I wanted these when they came out last summer but could not find them.

In H&M I purchased this basic tops. 

Take care

Back from a lovely week away

Hiya everyone

We have just got back from a few days in Devon at our favourite hotel. It was my birthday last Monday and my husband booked for us to go away. Although the weather was pretty stormy we had such a lovely relaxing time.
As the weather was pretty awful we spent most of our time in the hotel's gorgeous swimming pool and jacuzzi and also shopping!!!  I ended up purchasing quite a few winter items which I shall blog about in another post.

I also bought a few xmas presents, its unusual for me to start christmas shopping this early.  I cannot believe christmas is like 6 weeks away!  

Tomorrow I am meeting up with my best friend, her birthday is in November too so we always have a joint celebration.  I have booked for us to have Afternoon Tea in a posh hotel so I am really looking forward to it.  I found somewhere that does Gluten Free and Dairy Free Afternoon Tea's (my friend is dairy free) imagine us trying to find places to eat...ha ha

Anyway I will be catching up with all your blogs over the weekend.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend

Clothing & homeware haul

Hello everyone

Just thought I would show you a few of my recent purchase.

Firstly I ordered these two dresses from New Look.....

The first one is a Pussycat dress...its really lovely.  Its like a stretchy knit style dress and I love the lovely white embroidery and white lace trim.  It does remind me of a sexy maid ha ha but I think its so cute and feminine!

This dress looks really short on the model but I loved the print and the style.  I was so glad I ordered it as its nowhere near as short on me (maybe because I am a shortie lol). The photo does not do it justice as it fits so nicely.

I loved the look of this skirt online but when I received it I was not 100%.  I love the colour and the style but I don't know it sort of lacks something.....I just don't know what!  I think I am returning this which is a shame as I really want a check mini skirt. 

Love this skirt.  I was not keen on houndstooth as it reminds me of old ladies but I actually think this is lovely and cannot imagine an old lady wearing it ha ha

Then when I was in Tesco a few days ago I saw this cushion and had to get it....its gorgeous and so soft and has a luxurious soft feeling.

This mirror was £2.99 in B&M Bargains....its really pretty.

Anyway hope you liked my haul :) 

Have a lovely weekend

Style Inspiration - Jenna Coleman


I am not a massive Doctor Who fan I mean I don't hate it but I am not someone who is an avid fan but I love to watch it to see what Clara wears!  I adore the lovely actress Jenna Coleman I love her style as Jenna and as Clara. I think Jenna is so pretty and petite.  She is adorable and naturally beautiful unlike a lot of the fake looking celebrities you see these days!

I want to get a skirt like that! 

Who do you admire at the moment?

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
