Someone has been indulging in retail therapy! Well deserved I think as I got some good news about work this week!

Sneak preview ((everything will be shown properly when I wear it))

Matalan were kind enough to send me a gift voucher so I dragged Dad along to spend it today after work!

I GOT THE DAISY DRESS, I had little hope of my local shop having it, but they did, and in my size. Happpyyy! They didn’t have the spacey printed dress I wanted but I found this fabulous floral one and happily made off with that.

Blouse, I’ve been looking for some nice blouses for work, and this one is lined, too which is an added bonus. I’m thinking it’ll also look rather snazzy with my denim skirt.

Feather ring…just because.

That little lot came to just under £50 I think.

Noticing a flower theme here…I won this dress super cheap on ebay.

Not really a purchase as it’s on contract (my first ever contract phone, eep). My Nokia died on me so I decided, after much tweeting for advice to go for a Blackberry curve.

And the cake?


R.I.P. Delicious sponge.


OH and Bristol peeps, if anyone is around Sunday night, my bro’s band, Richard Parker is playing at The Croft from 7:30pm, I’m not going (boo) but the band are crashing with us this weekend so I’ll try and get some photos etc.

  4. That cake did look yummy with it’s multicoloured goodness! 🙂

    Looks like you had a nice little shopping trip there.

    I keep seeing things I want in magazines and they all seem to be from Matalan, they’ve definately upped their game with the SS collection and a visit there is much needed!

  5. yay very glad you managed to track down the daisy dress 🙂

  6. Oh I’m feeling the urge to shop! That blouse looks lovely 🙂

  7. Oh the daisy dress is perfect. The blouse looks lovely too. I can’t work out these sheer things at the moment – you only have to wear something underneath them, so why not line them in the first place? (sound like my mum, don’t I?)

  8. Ooooh i’m so glad you got the daisy dress, can’t wait to aee you wear it xx

  9. That daisy print dress is brilliant and I love the flowery theme. Perfect for the Springtime. And RIP lovely, gorgeous, yummy looking cake. Have fun in cake heaven! By the way, good luck for your brother’s band! My Uncle’s in one too so I know how stressful it can be. Thanks for the lovely comment too, I like the blue as well 🙂 xxx

  10. great picks!!! shopping has always been a picker-upper and i’m glad you were able to score these amazing finds! pretty dress! and the cake looks yummy!


  11. I recently got a Matalan voucher as well but I couldn’t really find much to spend it on which was a shame. I saw the Daisy Dress but it wouldn’t suit me, I bet it looks great on you though!

  12. i like the dress you won on ebay! and I need a new phone but I don’t use my phone enough to go contract: In fact I only use my phone for emergencies! (but I do fancy an iPhone so I can put my music on it!)


  13. Love your buys esp the daisy dress from ebay.

  14. Aah great dresses! I wish there was a matalan near me 🙁 and what a beautiful Blackberry 😉

  15. Gorgeous dresses! Love the blouse also. Matalan is great for clothes, shoes, jewellery. PRetty much everything at the moment.
