Saturday's style

Oh how I love having weekends off! Yesterday was spent wandering round town with Alex, buying my few pieces of uniform from Topshop, eating some Tomato soup and having an afternoon nap.

Here's what I wore - special mention going to the black dress which was £9.99 in H&M. It doesn't really show up on the camera, but it is so very cute. See it here on the website, where it's only £7.99 at the mo!




(Belt: Primark, Leggings: H&M, Jacket, Shoes and Cardi: Charity shop)

The night was a different story altogether, as I had arranged a night out with my Topshop buddies to initiate the new staff. It was a roaring success and we drank, giggled and gossiped until the early hours. It was SUCH a fun night that I didn't take a single picture! Although, having checked my twitter profile this morning, I do now have some visual proof of the night I had... (Read from the bottom upwards!)


The shame!!! Oh well, I don't get tipsy often so one night of ridiculous tweeting should be allowed. It is my work christmas do on Saturday, though, so there *may* be a repeat performance...

Today has been spent sitting in my pyjamas, eating more soup (addicted at the moment!) and catching up on the X Factor. Loving Amelia Lily and Little Mix! I also must try out some of the beauty products I've been sent lately too so I can tell you all what's hot and what's not... On that note it's probably time to get dressed and crack on with some reviewing! 

Have you had a nice weekend? And is anyone else enjoying the X Factor this year? I sometimes feel like I'm the only one round here!

  3. I'm a Little Mix & Marcus fan :) hoping LM don't win though, I think they'd be better NOT on Simon Cowell's record label. Lovely dress - sadly can't justify even that at the minute but what a bargain.

  4. I'm enjoying x factor, but I don't think it's as good as it's been in previous years! Not sure whether it's because Simon's not doing it, hmm.
    I have that dress! I LOOOOVE it, such a cute little black dress - looks great on you too.

  13. I love the dress - a great price as well! Amelia Lily is my favourite and she was meant to come and perform at my local town for the Christmas lights, but pulled out when she got back on the X Factor :( I like the X Factor, but the new judges seem so horrible sometimes! xx

  17. That dress looks lovely on you, love that cardi too. I missed that in your Twitter feed (was probably fast asleep myself!) but I am a paranoid drunk too, came in drunk on Tuesday night and gulped down pints of water, woke up with a bit of cheese next to my bed so I obviously tried to gobble down dairy products to line my stomach too! And BTW I quite agree, what kind of a DJ whacks on a Spotify playlist? Lazy!

  18. Sounds like an amazing night! I had an accidental night out yesterday where dinner with a friend turned into way too many Long Island Iced Teas! Whoops?

    I must, must check out the H&M sale. I always forget about them, but that dress looks just lovely on you. I love the contrast of the body and the skirt.

  21. Hey Gem :o)

    I was mighty tempted by that dress the other day but couldn't be bothered to try it on...you may have persuaded me to go back for it :D
    Party dresses is something I'm definitely lacking in my life...

    Also very addicted to X Factor...love Little Mix! And Amelia is pretty awesome too.

  23. That's totes the dress my friend was telling me she bought from H&M but I couldn't imagine it at all- complete bargain! Looks awesome one you. What are you wearing to your work xmas do? I was inspired by you last year, but I've ordered this: it was rather pricey and have a feeling it'll look bum on me when it arrives! :-/ http://www.rarefashion.co.uk/clothing/dresses/party-dresses/polka-dot-sheer-sleeve-dress.html xx

  27. Haha drunk tweets are the best! Can't believe playing a spotify playlist can count as 'DJing' though haha.

  29. I am guilty of drunk tweets, you're not alone! I also ordered this dress online the other day, will probably take a year for it to come but I'm excited to get it (: xx

  30. That dress is so sweet. Saw a few bloggers with it and it looks much better on than it does on the website I think. That cardi looks so warm too!

    Ahhh, I'm an awful drunk! Whenever I think of my drunken times I seriously cringe. Oh well, good memories none the less. :P

  32. Haha! Your tweet about the spotify dj is so funny. I always wondered how they could call themselves a dj when it's just a playlist on a mac. We could do that job?!? WE WANNA SEE THEM SPIN RECORDS! x

    ReplyDelete
  33. Lol, some DJs are so full of their own self importance, there's one at a club in my town who threatens physical violence if anyone dares to request a song! Love the dress and love tomato soup, yums. x
