I know from Twitter that I wasn’t the only one mourning the cold temperatures yesterday. This was the first of THREE outfits I had on trying to stay warm whilst not looking like I was dressed for Autumn. I was horribly over-ambitious with this one but it’s still August, which means Summer…right? Clearly not. I am bitterly disappointed with the frankly shit weather we have had this year. Anyone want to emigrate with me?

(Matalan dress, Pretty Polly tights, Yull shoes).

Back at work today after an extra long weekend, a three day week almost makes up for everything else.

How are you dressing right now? Is it time to admit defeat with Summer clothes? I’ve not even had chance to wear some of my purchases!


P.S. Giveaway open until Sunday!


Time to re-evaluate and make some changes. Proper, not half hearted changes.

How do you cope with making changes? I need to get my ass back on track before I face losing what I’ve worked so hard for.

Chic Unique

You can’t beat a surprise in the post for putting a smile on your face, and last week when this pink swallow earrings dropped through my door from Chic Unique the theory was once again tested and proved correct.

Chic Unique encapsulates modern design and fashion and adds a funky, unique, vintage edge yet still at affordable prices making it accessible for all tastes, budgets and occassions.
We specialise in bespoke design for any taste and budget, an up cycle and repair service is also available upon request.
We have also had jewellery worn at the Brit Awards by the up and coming artist Tiger Lilly in 2011.

I love the cute designs, my current favourites from the site are the “to catch a bird” Necklace (£14), “time for tea!” Ring (£10) and the Scrabble Initial Earrings (£15)

You’ve heard me rave about both these brands for long enough…now’s your chance to see why I love them so much!

Good Luck, and thanks again

Weekends are for being indulgently lazy; reading a good book, cat naps, pottering about, watching crap TV, drinking far too much coffee and eating comfort food.

All those affected by Hurricane Irene, be safe.

UK’ers, I hope your planning to be extra lazy with the Bank Holiday
