A post of ones own . . .

. . .  this special number deserved a post dedicated to it. Isn’t it lush? The Whistles sale is a dangerous thing.


Oh the weather outside was frightful . . .

. . . but I still managed to brave the shops in my post evil flu haze!

Go away. . .

How. Cool. Are. These? I want the ‘go away I’m reading’ one.

Zara. . .

Zara online is killing me.


Bookish. . .

As promised – here are some pics of the books I bought in Hay on Wye – I love it when they have inscriptions from the previous owners on the inside covers. Lovely. I found some classics and I also stumbled across some of my childhood faves – Noddy and Mallory Towers.

Here are a few pics from my jaunt to Wales. Hour upon blissful hour spent browsing second hand books. I found some gems (pics to follow soon) – – I’ll also post about some awesome bits I picked up at a Welsh car boot sale.


As you may remember from a previous post – I am a little bit obsessed with the midi length skirt – I just hope I can avoid frumpsville when I find one. Nothing frumpy here:

The Outsiders Collection – Topshop

I know every blog in the whole ‘blogosphere’ is posting about the Topshop Outsiders collection – – but I can understand why. . . there are so many L U S H pieces. . .

Mama’s got a brand new bag . . .

So, my new bag has caused me to jump on that blogging bandwagon – ‘what’s in your handbag’ .. so here goes. . .

. . .

1. How amazing is my new bag? Asos provided a new satchel for a new career .

2. Moleskine  balck notebook and red diary – I’d be lost without it!

3. Battered Ted Baker purse. Still love those gold baubles.

4. Kath Kidston card holder – my Oyster card has never looked so kitch.

5. Elle Collections mag – so lush.

6. Always got a couple of books on the go – and I never leave the house without at least one.

7. Cherry Drops (yum)

8. Rose and Almond Oil Vaseline – cannot function without some sort of Vaseline about my person, this one has a hint of colour too.

9. Benefit Dandelion blusher.

10. Mini Bourjois Blush 08.

Monochrome Summer

Maybe it’s because I’m wearing black and white today, or because I have a very similar dress to the one Karla is wearing below (A L L about sweetheart necklines) .. but I  love the lines and the use of monochrome for summer…
