Tuesday 31.05.


Well the last day of May has been a mixed one weather wise! I am hoping that June is going to bring some milder and brighter days - I need to ditch boots, coats and winter clothing. I am so ready to wear my summer clothes!

We are having a clear out at home (as I mentioned) and continued on with it last night when O was at my mums. I found this top in a drawer - I have not worn it for ages and it is a true favorite of mine. This shows you how rubbish I am at clearing out! I must do better tonight!!

Today's outfit is:

Leggings - Blend
Cami - Primark
Top - Vila
Shoes - Barratts
Necklace - Primark

Monday 30.05.


It is a Bank Holiday here again today! The schools are all off and pretty much everyone has a day off work - unless they work in retail!!

It is a gorgeous bright sunny day here so far and there are plenty of day trippers out and about! For me it has been a morning of dressing gorgeous little baby bumps - it is really very nice helping pregnant ladies find something that is stylish, comfortable and feels somewhat like them!!

I do not usually work a Monday, things were a bit rushed this morning and I ended up in a much more casual outfit that I had planned in my head! But it has worked out well for the kind of things I have been getting done today.

Today's outfit is:

Striped tunic - Blend @ i am.....
Leggings - Target
Cami - Primark
Cardigan - River Island
Shoes - American Eagle

I have a question for you all! Do you carry a make-up/cosmetics bag around in your handbag? If you do what do you carry - everything or just the touch up essentials?

The reason I ask is, I do carry a make-up bag. It is small and crammed full of varous lip glosses, balms, paracetamol, perfume and bronzer/blusher and brush! This today has broken and made a huge mess. I am going to have to clear out later and I think I am going to re-organise things a bit!

Saturday 28.05.


I did not get a chance to post while at work on Saturday as I was kept busy (working) and my Internet connection was not staying connected very well!! I hate when technology can not just do what you need it to!

I am in love with these trousers - they are such a gorgeous lightweight cotton, they are the perfect length (on me) and they sit in just the comfiest place! I love that they are brown and not black too - I seem to pick brown over black and as the years go on I see that black drains me!

Our weekend ended up being pretty quiet which was lovely. Miss O was lovely and chilled - she is much more contented just playing and exploring our home now that she is on the move. I managed to make a start on the major clear out of our spare rooms! It is so nice to have the room now looking at lot less like a jumble sale and exactly like a bedroom! I now have a HUGE pile of stuff to list on eBay, if I have no luck there I will then be making the trip to the charity shop!

Saturday's outfit was:

Trousers - Blend @ i am.....
Vest - American Eagle
Cardigan - Forever 21
Shoes - Charlotte Russe

Friday 27.05.


Happy Friday everyone!!

I do not really get that Friday feeling, as I have worked Saturdays pretty much all my adult life! But I do love that a Friday means that N is home for the weekend and that he and O have daddy and daughter time while I work. And then we all have Sunday to have family fun!

Tomorrow it is my two sisters birthdays, so tonight we are going to one of their houses for dinner and a few drinks. It will be an early one for us though as we do not want O too much out of her routine and I am in the shop all day tomorrow! Saturday night we have no plans, but I think I may make something nice for dinner, chill a bottle of wine and watch a movie with N. Sunday - right now I have no idea what our plans are, but I know that we will have to do some food shopping and there will be a nice long walk with the dog too!

I hope that you all have fabulous weekends whatever your plans are!

Today's outfit is:

Dress - Vila
Tights - Tesco
Cardigan - River Island
Shoes - Christian Louboutin

Thursday 26.05.


Thursday is a bit of a funny day for me at the moment. I have to be in work to let staff away at 2.15pm! It is not so bad as I only have to work for a few hours, but it really messes up my day and childcare for such a short time is proving to be a bit of a nightmare! Today I had to bring Miss O in with me until N could get away from work to collect her! I am hoping that it is a short term thing - and if it is not Papi (my dad) retires in the summer and has said that he will help out a day a week.

The weather is not as miserable, as it has been, today - but it really is not sandal weather yet! Ballet flats with bare feet I can cope with!! Sunshine please, please come back!

I had my Weight Watchers meeting yesterday morning and I had lost another 1lb. I am really pleased with this and it has spurred me back into doing things right! I was starting to cheat a wee bit. I re-stocked the fridge/treat cupboard with WW Toffee bars! They are small, but they are only 2 pro points and they do feel like a real chocolatey treat!!

Today's outfit is:

Jeans - Vila
Long vest top - Blend @ i am.....
Cardigan - Mama-licious
Shoes - American Eagle

Tuesday 24.05.


Wow - what a rough few days we have had weather wise!! We have been getting battered with gale force winds and almost constant rain! We are used to high winds, but not at this time of the year and with the trees being in full leaf there is quite a lot of local damage!
The temperature has plumetted and we have had to have the heating back on in the evenings for little Miss O! As well as the heating I have had to dig out yet more boots - I so thought I had seen the last of them until October!!

I took these trousers from the shop back before I started on Weight Watchers. I loved the style, the fit and how much more confortable than jeans that they were. I have since removed 12.5 lbs off my body and I am not loving these quite as much. I took this picture after being in work for an hour, so the trousers had been on for just over 2 hours! They look so baggy! Not good! There are now non of these left in the smaller size which is rather annoying! I suppose I should be thankful that they are not too tight!!

Today's look is:

Skinny Cargo Jeans - Vila
Cami - American Eagle
Jumper - Blend
Boots - Forever 21
Necklace - I have no idea!

Saturday 21.05.


And we are up to date!! Thank goodness!

I got a hair cut yesterday..... Back to the crop style that I had for ages. I think I made the decision a bit too quickly. Now looking back I kind of liked the longer, fuller style. I do remember that I did not like the straightening and lots of products. And I love that it took all of a minute for me to dry my hair this morning! I am sure this time next week I will not a have an issue - but sorry if I go on about it until then.

It is wet and miserable here today. I am bored! It would appear that people do not like to shop in the rain - especially for summer clothes when it has turned cool again!
Oh well I am sure the rain will stop....... at some point!

Today's outfit is:

Jeans - Vila
Vest - J.Crew
Cardigan - J.Crew
Scarf - Cotton On
Shoes - Topshop

Wednesday 18.05.


I am so ready to wear my gorgeous summer skirts and dresses - but the weather is just not there yet. So, the tights are still a must!!

I love the bright colour on this skirt - it pretty much goes with whatever you pair it with. I have to be honest and tell you all that I had forgotten all about these gorgeous sandals. I have a collection of shoes in the store room at the shop. I used to walk to work in my trainers or fit flops and change into my heels when I got here.
With me being pregnant and then last year just not wearing heels, I had totally forgotten all about these and a few others! It is now like having new shoes!!

Wednesday's outfit is:

Skirt - Matalan
Vest - J.Crew
Cardigan - Vila
Tights - Tesco
Shoes - Matalan

Tuesday 17.05.


So I get back to blogging and the wireless router in the shop decides that it is no longer going to work..... AT ALL!! Worry not all is well with the world again and we have Internet access!

I honestly did not think I would still be wearing boots in May!! But the wet weather and my missing a waxing appointment has made it essential.
I regularly overlook this tunic and I do not know why? Every time that I wear it I feel great - I suppose I should try and wear it more often.

Tuesday's outfit was:

Tunic - Max C London
Leggings - Oasis
Boots - Faith

Saturday 14.05.


Oh dear!! I did not realise that it had been so long since I last blogged! How bad of me! I am sorry that I have not been around (I have not even really been commenting) life has been so busy lately! Before I went off on holiday, I had staff issues and since returning I have been working more! When I am in work I am busy working, so that I do not have to work at home when I with Orla.

But I am going to try and make this a more regular thing - I miss it!!

Today is a good day! I have not had these jeans on for more than a year! Last year they did not fit and I was not wearing heels at all and part of the year before I was pregnant! I had forgotten how comfortable they are and how great they look with wedges! This top also feels like it is new - it has just not been worn for ages!
I have had 2 compliments so far today and I am smiling!!

Today's outfit is:

Jeans - French Connection
Cami - George
Top - Topshop
Wedges - Next
Necklace - Forever 21
