Last minute

I am usually so organised so imagine how shocked I was when I received a phone call last night realising that have mixed up my dates badly by a whole month! Tonight instead of heading home to spend the weekend with Matt and my friends who I had made lots of plans with, I shall be driving for hours down to the south coast for four days working for Lamborghini.

I'll be staying in a rather lovely looking converted barn in a beautiful setting living with two girls I have never met and an Italian racing driver.... its a tough job but someone has to do it.....

I'll be back next week with a full report of my weekend fun and my latest sales buys. Have great weekends, i'm off to make last minute lists and plan what to pack!

A hint of 70's

These bootcut jeans have been dug out of a bag ready to go off to the charity shop and I'm re-loving them again. Showing a bit of 70's love here in my jeans, digital paisley print and floppy hat.

Snakeskin details

At the weekend I went to a surprise party for a friend and she really was surprised bless her, she burst into tears within seconds of walking the room!

You've seen this blouse before here, and I paired it with my dove grey jeans and a really comfy pair of sandals that were a total bargain in the Kurt Geiger sale a few years back. I love all the different details on them, the buckle, patent leather of course the snakeskin and the lucite heels. The clutch is new and the neutral colour means its getting grabbed for lots of occasions.

My hair is totally 'au naturel', my hairdresser advised seeing how it dried naturally now that it has had a huge chop and this is the result with a little Morrocan Oil smoothed in for flyaways and shine. I'm actually quite impressed and will be leaving it to air dry much more often now.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekends!

Commenting problems

I'm having problems commenting on quite a few peoples blogs as there is a problem with Google which is still being fixed. Its so frustrating but hopefully this will help.

There is a work around which takes two seconds - Go to your Dashboard> Settings> Comment Form Placement, Click pop up window> Save changes.

If you don't have the pop up window set then the chances are that people are having trouble leaving you comments, some I can leave as an open ID but it doesn't leave my picture and details and others I can't comment on at all :(

You'll be able to change it back once the fix has been rolled out but in the mean time this will keep your comments coming in!

I hope that helps if you've been having problems too.

Summer Time

I don't have many watches but this pretty summer selection is making me question why!

The majority are inexpensive, fun and tough, the mint green swatch with its double wrap strap is top of my picks!

Photobucket

Back to some outfit posts next week I promise, have great weekends whatever you are up to!

High street shoe hits

I'm not in the best of spirits this week i'm feeling a bit run down and full of a summer cold, not helped by burning the candle at both ends last weekend. I thought i'd do a series of posts over the rest of the week, my favourite picks from the high street.

This first selection is footwear,there's defintely a neutral colour theme here with chunky blocked heels.

What's your favourite pair from this pick?

Out came the sun

And on went one of my favourite dresses, the Kate Moss pansy dress. It doesn't need much accessorising, just a nice pair of sandals or pumps. Wearing the larger tortoiseshell pair of glasses from my previous post.

Specs appeal

I've been wearing glasses for years and years now although you haven't really seen me in them here on the blog. I wear my glasses everyday and switch to contacts if i'm going out somewhere nice or to wear my sunglasses at weekends.


Now I need a new prescription i've decided its time to update my frames from these: Miu Miu's to some bigger framed geekier specs.



Photobucket


Ideally i'd like some Raybans in the new Wayfarer style the same as my sunglasses or some Clubmasters, but before I splash out i've decided to road test these glasses. The matte black pair came in at a very purse friendly £14.50 including prescription lenses and case + £3.50 shipping - what a result. Especially as many wearers know glasses do not usually come cheap!

As soon as i'd ordered the glasses I had an offer code come through for a free pair from another company which I also ordered with a similar frame but in tortoiseshell, so I can now suit my glasses to my mood and outfit!

I'll post some photos soon of the glasses on!

Wedding at Whittlebury & hair chop

I visited a new hairdressers at the weekend and lost a lot more of my hair than I had intended. I originally asked for an inch off was told it needed about an inch and a half and I think in reality have lost 4-5 inches eek!

It's a good job I love it and it feels so healthy and bouncy and i'm really really pleased with the colour, my stylist also was a master of blow drying and managed to get waves that are still in my hair 4 days later without using tongs, straightner, curlers etc. I wish I could go back for a blow dry every week!

The wedding was in the Northamptonshire countryside at Whittlebury Hall where I have been a few times now, I hadn't been into the Orangery though where the reception was held. Such a beautiful venue and I had the best time with my oldest friends who I don't get to see enough.


I love this silk dress and last wore it for a wedding two years ago but it hasn't been out of my wardrobe since unfortunately.
