My worst kept secret

Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon a new clothing line? And to make it even better, every time you wear one of their pieces, someone asks you where you got it from. That’s what’s happening since I bought a few items from […]

Look what I found!

Do you ever buy something that sits in your wardrobe for ages then suddenly you are totally inspired and decide it goes with everything you’re wearing right now? Well that has just happened to me. I have had this cape jacket from Jameela Jamil‘s collection […]

Casual or Smart?

I fell in love with this OneOneThree skirt months ago, and finally I own it! I bought it to wear it casual with trainers and t-shirts but the day it arrived I was heading out and I just had to wear it! So, I hauled through my wardrobe to see what would match up and decided on this cold shoulder bodysuit with a cute ruffle right the way around the neckline and wrap up shoes, both from ASOS. To complete the look the other half had surprised me with a pack of ten different style chokers that were from on offer on Groupon and I decided a plain tie design went perfect with the shoes. When I get around to wearing it casually I’ll post a photo.

Royal Ascot Fashion

Last week I was lucky enough to go to the races. I’ve got to be honest, I was a little skeptical about the whole day, imagining thousands of people crammed under cover from the rain – a meat market! I couldn’t have been more wrong. […]

Birthday Month of May

And so another 2 months have whizzed passed my eyes since I last sat down to write a blog. How did that happen? I don’t even think I’ve been that busy.

It was my birthday last week though so I always refer to the month of May as my ‘birthday month’ and have an annoying habit of spreading out the celebrations for four weeks.

I started very early (even for me)  this year with some nights out –  a pyjama and prosecco night – always involves lots of fizz and an take away – delicious; and a night out with the girls  – which involved the usual – Cardiff, wine, dancing, shots, more dancing, lots of selfies and ending in the best part – cheese, chips and gravy. A birthday isn’t a birthday without all those ingredients.

Then I was whisked away by the other half for a weekend of culture and exploration. We went to Edinburgh so the exploration was mainly curtailed to craft beer pubs and seafood restaurants – I loved it!

We did have a nose around Edinburgh Castle but I have to be honest, it was mainly to say we had actually done something ‘touristy’ more than anything else. It was great though – but there are only so many selfie sticks a woman can take so I wont be rushing back – its ticked off the list, that will do (definitely deserved my pint after that!).

My actual birthday involved lots of cards, flowers, presents and a night out for food – yes, I know, food, me,  who would have thought? 🙂

And to top it all off, a homemade cake made my the best sis ever!
