My €1 dress!

When we were in Paris, one of the highlights was rooting through the €1 boxes in a vintage store in Le Marais. We got absolutely HEAPS of stuff! This is just a really oversized orange spotty blouse which I cinched in and wore with my trusty biker! It's a bit creased as this pic was taken after work and my job does involve a lot of sitting!

(jacket - H&M, boots - charity shop)
My incredible Pug necklace was an unexpected gift a little while back from Cheap Frills!

So this is the first blog post from my new iPad! I'm using a seemingly INCREDIBLE app called Blogsy! I had put the feelers out a week or so ago on Twitter to see if anyone recommended it before I shelled out £2.99, and only a couple of people seemed to sing its praises, but from my initial experience, every blogger with an iPad needs this in their life! I'm planning an iPad post this weekend to show you guys my new baby and the little blogger kit I've amassed, and will try and go into more detail about Blogsy benefits!

I've had a mental week and am aiming to do a little diary type post this weekend to show you some camera snippets of it all! Am loving it, but am looking forward to a nice chilled weekend with the fiancé!

I feel the need to tell you that Alex has just DEAFENED me by shrieking at the telly because England scored... I never knew he could hit such a high note! Any other girlfriends out there had their tv remote rights revoked due to the Euro 2012? I'm trying to embrace it but the screaming is really not necessary. One prog I definitely am behind this year is BB! Guilty pleasure!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend planned!

  9. I'd be intrigued to know how you get your photos onto your iPad! I'm assuming you use your laptop/computer for that and then just link them into the blog posts? I look forward to hearing about blogging on an ipad anyway! (although I'm not sure I need convincing to purchase one, if only I had the ££!)

    I nearly have a heart attack everytime that Scott shouts after a goal, it's very unsettling!

  10. Wow, that's such a pretty bargain! Luckily I do not suffer Euro 2012 as 1) I am Scottish and oor team is not in it 2) my fiancé has absolutley no interest in football. :D
    Though I would take his telly hogging as an excuse to go out with your girlies!! Xo

  12. This is lovely - and only one Euro?! I really haven't investigated vintage shopping abroad, but feel I must now. Interesting to hear about blogging from an ipad - sadly a bit out of my price range though! I am also a footabll widow tonight - don't know why our men-folk have to scream and shout at the telly when they ar ein a room on their own. Ridiculous! xx

  13. You look fantastic, that colour suits you too and I didn't think orange suited pale skin.. was very wrong! Glad you're enjoying your job, the diary sounds sweet too so looking forward to that! Oh no, hope your hearing isn't too deafened :P All I see on facebook is football statuses!

  14. one euro? Insane!
    Yep, I've been waiting on a call from my boyfriend, but I have a feeling 22 men are getting more attention than me...
    It would be mine
    ALSO, I haven't said but CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement!

  18. Love your shirt, where did you get it? Am going to Paris next month so would appreciate tips! Looking forward to your iPad post. I know about being a sports widow haha, I get that when the F1 is on. I just rang my dad this evening and heard him cheer when I was on the phone to my mum- England scored I guess!

  19. I really would love to steal the contents of your wardrobe!

  22. What a gorgeous dress and such an amazing find for a euro. The flea markets in France are amazing, I have so much stuff from there. Normally I'm a long suffering girlfriend when it comes to football but we're not in the same country at the moment. Think my mum may have to put a ban on the football for my dad though.

  24. That is a sterling find for only one Euro! But I am extremely envious of the pug necklace. Although, I am not huge on pugs, I would rather have one with a dachshund on it.

  25. Aaah that necklace is so cute, the shirt is lovely too! I got deafened as well tonight - I'm lucky enough that the main boys in my life (dad, brother and boyfriend) don't like football, however I'd planned to go out with a few friends for drinks without any of us thinking that the football was on. Got there just in time for the last two goals and one very upset Swedish guy who ended up being forced out of the pub by the typical English louts - lovely!

  32. I love the dress on you! I'm about as into football as my boyfriend so we've both been deafening each other, haha. XO

  33. Amazing bargain! The thing I don't like about the footie is the crowd noise and chanting...I can bear it for so long and then I have to escape into the other room to read up on my fave blogs!

  40. BARGAIN OF A DRESS. Very much in love with coral/oranges at the moment! And oh my god the relentless football hooligan-ism just never ends. As it's fathers day today my feminist and nagging housewife disapproval have to be silenced.
