Welcome 2013

Hello there!

I hope you all had an absolutely fabulous Christmas! Yet again it has been so long since I have blogged! Always surprises me how quick time goes.So 2013 is just around the corner and ladies it is going to be a good one! I have many a plan!

2013 is going to be the year that I:

Go skiing
Run a half marathon
get a new job
Go to two weddings and a hen do
move house (hopefully for the job!)
do an epic cycle
and go glamping in a safari park!

Do you know the best part of all this is 4 of them are booked and there are two job apps on my computer!

13 maybe unlucky for some but not for us!

Follow me?

Good morning lovely people!

Hope you are all well and having a super weekend.

Now being a rather avid reader of blogs I am always in awe of bloggers who have 100s of followers...seriously how do they do it! Now I have had this blog for over a year and it has never been my intention to blog in order to get followers but we all know a little bit of attention is nice! So if I can get to ten followers I will do a blog giveaway.....bribery, much, well yes but never mind!

Fancy following me??

Always look on the bright side....

Hi there!

Goodness time has flown! Don't know why I go so long without blogging! Hope everyone is well!

So I have had a mixed week, on the one hand I have had some super news on the other hand life especially my love life has been really hard so rather than dwell on the I thought i would tell you (and remind myself!) about some awesome things that have happened!

So I got a new phone after a fall out with o2

First ever Iphone! Iphone 4s, very excited! Down loaded loads of free apps :)

And I am going to San Francisco!

In February I am going to San Francisco with the school on the ski trip! Applied last year found out yesterday! Well chuffed! Never been skiing before so this is the perfect trial for me to see if I like it! Also haven't been to states for yearsd and never been to San Francisco!
Exciting times

A day in photos


Hope everybody has had a lovely weekend! My Sunday was a bit more exciting than I though when an old mate from London called and said did I want to meet up so he came down and we went for a lovely big Weatherspoons fry up. then popped out to do a bit of shopping

They are not the prettiest I have seen but I really wanted comfortable school shoes and they do the job, also my mate gave me a 20% off voucher for Clarks!

I also got this in a charity shop. So pleased its a Marian Keyes that has been re released and it was exactly what I went looking for!

you know when you find something in your wardrobe you love but had forgotten about....isn't that the best thing ever

I had forgotten about this lacey little number

So I paired it with my new favourite denim shirt from H&M
Love love love this shirt....may try it with a twist next time
Hope everyone has a great start to their week

Good morning lovely people!

Hope you are all well and happy it is the weekend! It is gorgeous here hope the sun is shining where you are. so last night it being a Friday I came in, put joggers on and read the sun online (my secret vice) and saw the whole Kate Middleton topless scandal. I browsed through it and can understand why they are upset but the main thing that struck me about the article was her dress!

This Alice Temperly number is so beautiful! I want I want I want! (please)
So I think it is fair to say I am developing a crush, I even like the way Kate did her hair
 So elegant! I wish to be elegant!
Dear Mr Hair dresser and Mr Primark can you make me look like this please?
I remember this gown as well
So I may have not been concentrating on the point of the article but I have developed a new crush!
Ladylike chic is now what I am aiming for!
Who is your style crush?

Day at the farm

Hello there

What a gorgeous day! My friend asked me in the week if I fancied meeting up in London and going to the Imperial War Museum, a place I love but when she heard how gorgeous the weather was going to be she found Bockeets Farm which is roughly in the middle of us (I'm in Reading shes in Kent) so with another mate I set off this morning.


Denim shirt and stripey top - H&M
Leggings - New Look
Pumps - Primark
Then accessorised with this ring I got in coober Pedy is Australia

Its an opal, probably my favourite stone, I went to an actual opal mine and bought it there.

Bockets farm was lovely, of course we were the only people there who didn't have children but we really enjoyed. They have small animals like rabbits, Guinea pigs and mice

As well as larger animals like cows, alpacas, sheep, goats, horse and donkeys. My favourite though had to be the pigs
we were able to feed the animals, pat them and for younger ones there were pony rides etc. Although I am far too old it was a really nice way to spend a sunny day!

Thai there


Hope you are all well, for me it is the last weekend of the holidays....eeeeeek! Back to school on Monday.

So while I was off back packing in Oz a very good friend of mine went to Thailand for a month. It sounded like she had an amazing time, rode elephants, patted tigers and her photos are just beautiful. So being a good friend she bought me some Thailand goodies back.

Pretty bag and notebook on the elephant scheme
thai pants! Also with elephants on them :)
Modelling-these are so comfy!
She then popped across to Paris (as you do!) and brought me back this
Er how wonderful I hear you say....she bought you a small bread stick
Its a pen, how cool will I look in meetings holding this with the lid on maming everyone else hungry.
Its funny I love the thai pants and would quite happily wear them when I was on holiday but not here. Have you got any clothes no matter how much you love them you wouldn't wear out of your home?
