New dress




My mother dearest came up trumps when she got me this little cutie at a jumble sale a few days ago. It is a tad on the boob-squishing side but definitely wearable.

I was a bit dubious when I first saw it because I'm not that into gingham. But upon experimenting with it, I have decided I like it rather a lot!

I decided to team it with a black striped top. I like things that clash but not overly. I like it half and half. Like, the top clashes with the dress but the black of the top matches the leggings and the belt matches my shoe wedge! It sounds like I've intricately planned this outfit but it just happened. Haha.

Dress - jumble sale
Top - Topshop
Belt - h&m
Leggings - h&m
Shoes - Topshop via Ebay


Next, I went for a more schoolgirl/glamourous-yet-casual kind of look. I rolled my socks down and donned my fur coat that I've just taken out of my storage cupboard (I took my winter clothes out and put my summer clothes in!) It smells a bit musty so I'll probably have to dry clean it. Or Febreze it at least!

Alex and I are now going to watch the penultimate episode of heroes!!! Why do good things have to end?!
At least I'll be spared his incessant perving over Hayden Pannetierre, I spose.

Much love xxx

Tracy Emin eat your heart out!


I am the most untidy person on the planet. I attempted tidying mine and alex's bedroom this eve and this is as far as i got! Alex won't be impressed. He's not a fan of my messiness! He is at a charlton football game tonight. I had intended to post some pics of a dress my mum got me at a jumble sale for 30pence but i'm so engrossed in this chick lit book i'm reading that i've been useless tonight! The book is the reason i only got halfway through tidying! Its not even that good a book, i just want to know the ending. God i am a true gemini. Messy, easily distracted and impatient! Back to the book x x

Working weekends




Weekends don't really exist for me because I work every friday and saturday night and most sunday mornings. Yesterday night I worked at the video shop where (as I have previously mentioned) heating is non-existent so it was cosy clothes all the way.

White tee - Woolworths kids section (It has cute poofy sleeves - not shown)
Polka dot dress - topshop via charity shop
Navy blue & gold glitter tights - Primark
Knee highs - h&m
Jazz shoes - ebay

When I got in from work I changed into my new shoes. I've been stomping about in them! I really love them. Alex doesn't. I think its due to the power shift when I am as tall as him, and not small and obedient!! Not that I'm particularly small. I'm 5'7. He's 6'2.

New watch


I bought this blinging leopard print watch at Debenhams before work today. It caught my eye on my first day,last week so i bought it. Despite majore cashflow issues. My wedges arrived today! I wore them charity shop shopping with my boy. It was quite a painful experience but worth it to have pretty feet. X x

Who are ya? who are ya?


Just finished watching the football with alex, my brother and a pal. England lost so i'm now stuck with 3 grumpy boys. I am wearing stretchy clothes as i had a big dinner. Shiny leggings from h&m, baggy cardi from primark men's, granny slippers from...i don't know. Never mind. I don't imagine anyone will be rushing out to buy them! Gonna watch heroes next. I love it.

Shopping!!




I did some xmas shopping at Debenhams with my mumsy today. Got lots of discount! Saved about £40. Unfortunately I spent rather a lot of pennies on myself rather than other people. Here is what I wore:





Shirt - h&m
Shorts - New Look
Tights - Primark
Socks - h&m
Heels - Primark
Necklace - The gift shop at Drusilla's Park (a zoo)


Here's a couple of things I bought:

Fake Tattoo's!



A glittery liquid eyeliner & eye pencil set! There are more colours in the other side of the bag. This cost £3 with my discount!



I felt a tad creative and bored this eve so with the new eye make up bits, I decided to have a bit of fun, a la sienna:

Pants!

I would've posted a pic of my outfit but unfortunately I went for a hot chocolate and spilt it EVERYWHERE. all over my sweater, polo shirt, trousers, (through to my undies!), scarf. It was hideous. I just dropped the cup out of my hand. I think I momentarily fell asleep. I'm a sleepy kind of person.
So I don't think my blog should suffer due to my narcolepsy. So I have compiled some pics of some of my favourite undies. I love underwear. 
Anything frilly, lacey, burlesquey, with bows or silky is fab. I think watching Moulin Rouge years ago brought this obsession with luxurious underwear on.


I got these in h&m glasgow based on their spottiness and nice fabric texture:



My pal Danielle donated the next two pairs because she knows the way to my heart is pretty undies:





These next ones look a bit manky on here but they're quite a delight. They are purple and black lace and have suspender straps on and a little dangly bit on the front with a regal looking lady on it. I'm sure there's a name for that but you'll just have to try and understand!



These next ones I actually made myself. I was bored one day so went to a charity shop, bought a dark green night dress and chopped it up. The sewing is a bit of a mess but they look really good on, considering they were made using no pattern! Excuse me while I blow my own trumpet.




Tomorrow I'm getting my roots done and having my mane cut. Then going shopping with my mama to Debenhams to get lots of discount (its a mega discount few days but I get even more cos I'm staff). Cant wait. They have microwaveable slippers!! Thats perfect for me. I'm always complaining about having cold feet. I was complaining on the phone to my mother about having trench foot yesterday cos my shoes got rained in and I had vile squelching soggy feet. Slightly melodramatic but c'est la vie! That's just the way i roll!

I'm gonna watch Dragon's Den with my boyfy now. He is feeling very sorry for himself because he has a cold. xx

Here's a pic of my pretty parrot earrings I wore to work tonight. Sorry for lack of rotate-age and bigness. No outfit pic because I got in and stripped half of it off to get comfy on the sofa with my love to watch movies. I looked pretty boring anyway. We're torn between watching the good german and hairspray (both out on monday but I get them early because I work at the video shop. woo!) 

I've got work at debenhams tomorrow. Scary. I had a couple of training days last week and there is sooo much to remember. I'm doomed. Oh well!

Watching x factor results show that Alex recorded on sky + for me. Go Hope!! We love them (Alex does for other reasons. Namely the lead singer)! Get that Rhydian imbecile out. And Same Difference! What a joke. Sorry to any non-UK readers. Ignore this rant!

Love xx

Lots of bits



Hello xx
I have finally found some time to update my blog properly. Prepare for many a poorly-taken pic!!
Firstly, today's outfit. I was working at the video shop where there is no heating and the boss insists on keeping the door open to invite more customers in! Ridiculous. So here I am in cosy attire:





Jumper - h&m
High waisted shorts (waist not on show due to recent over indulgence) - Primark
Grey tights - Primark
Knee high socks - h&m
Grey flats - h&m


Stuff I bought in glasgow (mostly h&m):




Shiny Sandy-from-Grease style leggings - h&m
I wanted some nice long leggings but couldn't find any ordinary ones so plumped for these, I feel a bit like a cyclist in them but they are exquisitely comfy!!



Here is my little black dress from h&m





Here's my woolly jumper as seen above



I bought this baggy cardigan from the menswear section in Primark. Just for loafing about the flat in really. Its very comfy and a bargain too at £6.

These are some knee highs from h&m (seen above):

Here is some darling heels I bought from Peacocks (Excuse my attention whoreish cat):

Sorry for abnormally large last 2 pics. Also only half the pic is shown so click on pics. Blogger wouldn't let me upload them nor would photobucket! So I used some random other uploader. You won't believe how long those bloody pics took to upload so you better click them!!
Also, I just discovered the 'compose' section where I can change font size and do bold etc! (Hence typing in bold right now!)

I am very excited!! ho ho ho.

Lots of love xx
