Winter wonderland

Oh - one last thing. Totally loving the above looks which I found on Gives me a little bit of inspiration for everyday casual looks.

Random thought - sometimes I yearn for a uniform. It's hard coming up with an 'outfit' everyday!


Love in!

Once again, I was checking out one of my favourite blogs Olsens Anonymous and love love LOVE Ashley's get up - starting to feel like a bit of a stalker.... Needless to say, this is not a look I will be rocking anytime soon though. Weather in Blighty dictates a few more layers - Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Had my hair appointment on Saturday and decided that I had come thus far on the painful journey of growing out my fringe, that I would not back down just yet. Had my colours toned down a bit, in the style of the pic I posted of Ashley (stalkerish - No?!?). Like it! Will try a post a pic soon.

Almost time for home - Hurrah!

Nails - loving all of Barry M's colours (cheap enough for me to change my mind every week)
Bed - Zzzzzzzzzzz

In the words of one Lady Parsnips - LOVE IT!

Later Xxxx

image from i think...

I am sooooo shattered so I'm just doing a quick blog before I head off to snoozeville.

Came across the image of Cat Deeley this week and just love the look. Cat has always been a bit of a style icon for me, but since disappearing state side she's not been gracing the glossy pages as much.

This is such an effortless look - love it!

Also loving her hair too which has almost convinced me not to get a fringe cut in tomorrow. Hmmmmmmm need to decide.

Anyhoo, I'm off for a bath and to pop some tan on, then bed. Mr M and I are out for festive frolics tomorrow evening and preparation must be made - chop chop.

Night night

Hair lust

Just checking out one of my fav blogs Olsens Anonymous and came across this pic. This is how I want my hair - perhaps I'll be a loser and print it out for my appointment on Saturday!?!

These boots were made for......

Something has occurred to me whilst writing my blogs - I am obsessed with shoes and in particular boots at the moment!

These are the new object of my affection. The photo really doesn't do them justice because they are really lovely. They sit over the knee and are really buttery soft leather. They look really smart in person. I ♥ these boots soooooo much. They remind me of the type of boots Parisian ladies wear.

When I visited Paris two years ago in February it was notable just how fabulous their boots were. They all looked so effortlessly chic; Wandering around in gorgeous winter coats and beautiful leather boots. There wasn't a hint of fake tan anywhere - Whhhaaattt!

Anyhoo - Jones the Bootmakers have a sale on at the moment and I reckon that these bad boys are coming home with me. One last decision to be made though. Black or Brown? Answers on a postcard kids!

All good things come to an end.....

Ok, so that's probably an over exaggeration but I am very upset that my thigh high flat boots are nearing deaths door.........

Have been at Twickenham today to watch the Ba Bas play NZ (I am of course now a fully fledged NZ supporter due to Mr M's staunch patriotism). It was on this miserable day that my boots truly started to fall to pieces :-(

I feel even worse about the matter because I have in fact already replaced them in my head with a pair from Jones the Bootmakers :-) I feel guilty! But not guilty enough to not post a picture of them when I get back to my laptop - am currently travelling back from London town.

Question for you - why does it take 40mins to drive in a 400m circle here? I'm impatient get me out of here!!!!

Tomorrow Christmas tree shopping. Yaaaaaaaay.

Ick ickedy ick ick.......

Do you ever have one of those days where you literally wonder what you are doing with your life?

The last few months have been absolutely amazing. LOADS of ups and some downs.

Mr M and I disappeared for a weekend in Edinburgh/The Highlands - one of my favourite places in the world. We celebrated his birthday in style in the burgh of Edin….. Then disappeared further north to a romantic log cabin where he only went and PROPOSED to me!! I said yes – of course. The ring is AMAZING – clever Mr M! Soooooo exciting.

On our return Mr M also found out that he had passed some MASSIVE industry exams. Such great news.

Last week one of the downs came though when our landlord decided he would ‘get rid’ of the flat – booooo!

Now we have some major decisions to make. To top it off think I may be experiencing a mid twenties crisis – is there anything more pathetic?

So, I have decided to drag my arse out of this disgusting, self deprecating mood, if only to spare those around me, and do something about it.

I am making some Not New Year Resolutions….

Sort my blog out
Sort my wardrobe out
Figure out what I want to be doing
Figure out where I want to be doing it
Put wheels in motion
Realise it’s NOT all that bad. Suck it up and get on with it

Now that I have my rant out the way, I have to get out of work, enjoy the weekend (don’t you love 5.30 on a Friday?!?) and stop using this as therapy.

Oh – also have to add that I got my hands on the below boots I have been lusting after – they are sooooo great.

Next time I promise not to leave it so long.
