In complete contrast to my crappy week last week, this one has been quite wonderful.
I’ve spent a lot of time with my Mum, as Dad has been away and things have been very relaxed in our house (that’s not to say I haven’t missed Dad, he’s home tonight and I can’t wait to see him!) but it’s lovely to do things at our pace.



I’ve pretty much lived in jeans this week, complete relaxation wear. And for once it was because I wanted to and not because I didn’t feel like wearing anything else. This outfit is from Tuesday and includes an awesome vintage blazer/bolero stolen from Mum. You can’t see so well in the picture but it’s velvet, midnight blue with metallic details. I adore it.

I got to spend a good amount of time with Trudi on Monday and Tuesday which was lovely,
and yesterday Mum and I had a good old girly day that (of course) involved shopping! I took her to the new Primark where she got some bits for the house and I got some leggings that aren’t really leggings..if that makes sense?! They are thick black and ribbed with knee detail and I think I’ll get away with them as trousers.

Mum treated us to lunch at Pret (chicken and avocado, yum!) and then bought us both a new bag from Next (she is awful for spoiling me)


Her bag is amazing but I don’t have a photo, I’ll try and get one as it’s certainly blog worthy!
We kind of out did ourselves with the amount we bought actually, and could barely carry it back to the car! Most of my shopping was presents for others though 😉


Awful picture of todays outfit, but to be fair it was 8am and I was rushing to get to the dentist!

My check up was fine…mostly, a few minor things but not bad considering I’ve not had one for over three years (awful awful oops!)
Stumbled accross an amazing health food shop in the same town as our Dentist surgery and bought some treats then we along to another nearby town where we had coffee in very chic cafe and noseyed around the little trinket shops there.

I treated myself to this ring


which I am oh so in love with
and then we did boring food shopping before heading home so Mum could go to work.

more adventures tomorrow as I’m going shopping for A/W clothes with my Grandad, bless him.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week
sorry if this post is long/boring/non-sensical!
