A Little Catch Up & Stocking Fillers Under £10…

I feel like I’ve not spoken in absolutely ages; that I’m neglecting the blog somewhat.

It doesn’t help that I’ve spent the last week, laid horizontal anywhere I can, not feeling too great myself. I was even poorly on my birthday . Great timing eh? I appear to have the dreaded lurgy that is sweeping the nation . They are dropping like flies at work. Even Mollie dog is under the weather!

Well I am here to rectify that today, a little snotty with a tickley cough [ that’s driving me bonkers ]  but here.

So how the devil are you … and are we all ready for Christmas ?

Are you fed up of being asked that question yet? I am … and no I’m not [ ready ].

I’ve not even put my tree up ! I have ordered Harry Styles new album but no tree. [Priorities] Yes you heard correctly – my Christmas tree is not up

“Good god woman” I can imagine my mum muttering from above “pull your finger out!” I’ll no doubt be getting struck by lightening if it’s not up in the next few days ! … Continue reading

Boho Chic

I was going to do a post today about Lola , you know my cat, the one that I lost last week. I mentioned it to my BF earlier who shrugged his shoulders and said “oh I wouldn’t if I were you its a beautiful day you’ll depress people”… I suppose he may have a point…

He’s busy downstairs fitting our new kitchen. For those of you regular readers ( I presume we have a few) yes the kitchen we started before bloody Christmas. What can I say its been somewhat of a nightmare …BUT I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.(she says through gritted teeth and with baited breathe)

So with the sun shining outside I’m starting to think about all things summer holiday related. I’ve not mentioned my forth-coming weekend away in Marbella with the girls  have I? (only about 200 times!) I’m also hoping to get a week away with the Mr, somewhere hot, shortly. Maybe even Ibiza?

I’ve recently been drawn to everything Boho. It’s so colourful, pretty and basically fun. It’s like Ibiza and holidays all rolled up in one, often associated with the ‘arty farty’ types. Yep I’ve been called that before!

I’ve been scouring ebay and the like for ‘Ibiza inspired’ clothing. My boyfriend thinks I’m having a ‘crisis’ … of what sorts I’ve no idea but a crisis non the less.

Maybe it’s a cry out to my younger self, the one who spent the amazing summer of 1987 Island hopping around the Greek Islands. It was just Karen (one of my best friends) and I, my ruck-sack, several pairs of shorts, my treasured converse and no hair-dryer! Yes there was a time when I could live without my electrical friend. Saying that my hair was that short it didn’t need it.

We lived (and partied) for 7 blissful weeks in just our bikinis and shorts, sun-kissed and care-free …(pre my factor 50 days !) ‘hopping’ from island to island.

Such an amazing experience. I’ll tell you about it one day…

Anyway I’ve recently discovered Emonk Ibiza via Instagram and I’m now hankering after a pair of their boots…

What do you think?

I love them.

Boyfriend hates them !

RAMBLING…its been a while – talking skincare, lippy, mothers and a dog called Mollie.

We’ve not had a catch up for ages. So shall we talk and rectify the situation ?

Grab yourself a coffee and get comfy…

Firstly a little update. It’s skin related. No surprise there then I hear you cry – I am bordering on obsessed. Most people chase the dream. I chase perfect skin.

So as you may, or may not be aware, for the last few weeks I have been using a couple of Pixi products. I can officially confirm that I am now a Pixi Glow Cleanser & Glow Tonic convert .

NFD – That 70’s show….

Afternoon Ladies,

Let’s skate back to the 1970’s when fashion was just fabulous!…

Don’t you just love fashion at the moment? It is right up my street. I love the 70’s influence. I can’t get enough double-denim, flares, fringing and anything suede. For a girl born in 1970 and who grew up wanting to be a ‘Charlies Angel’ it’s a dream come true. I’m no spring chicken but this look works for all ages. You just have to adjust your hem lengths accordingly.

Here’s a pick of some recent, and some not so recent purchases I’ve made. Continue reading
