Bye Bye Heidi Braids

Hi Guys,
As you may know I recently cut my hair into a short bob which means that I can no longer wear my hair in my old styles so this is a little post to say Bye Bye Heidi Braid.

These pictures were taken by the every so lovely Amy who I met up with for a little birthday celebration. Which included pancakes at the Diner which were soooooooo yummy.

Here are some outfit piccys for you guys!
I thought I was going to miss my long hair but I actually really love the change.

I will be sharing pictures soon.

How cool is this picture, Amy took it in the mirror of a really cute Vespa.

Here are a few close ups of my outfit.

Also a few more shots of Bluebell... I love her sooooo much!!!!
I hope you have a great day!

Ciao for now.

Hi Guys,
How are we?

Now I am sure I have told you before that I am a BIG Cath Kidston fan!
So when I heard that they were holding a launch party for the new Safari range at their flagship store in Picadilly I couldn't wait to go...and of course I had to bring Amy along as my plus one, because lets face it she's awesome!!

Cath Kidston sure know how to spoil there guests. They had the most amazing Meringues in some awesome flavours by the Meringues Girls.

There were also super cute animal print cupcakes.

There were so many pretty things, and as I forgot my camera poor Amy was chased around by me saying Oooo did you get this? Did you get that?  Thanks again Amy!!!

Now before I post them I will warn you there are ALOT of pictures.
So here it goes!!! See you at the end!

Check out the back pack, it's the new safari print!!

So tell me you don't want to buy... like everything!!!

Anyway I will leave you lusting over the pretty things and if you're like me you just have to have them, go check out the Cath Kidston website!

Better late than never!

Hi Guys,
Yes, I know what your going to say... where have I been?

I'm sorry I disappeared for a while, I just wasn't feeling my blog, even contemplated deleting it. For now though I have decided to keep it.

Although I didn't blog I did take some pictures, so I thought I would share some of my new to me vintage 60's coat.  If you follow me on twitter you'll know I have actually had my hair cut since these pictures were taken.

Anyway here is Bluebell... named Bluebell for obvious reasons. Am I the only person who names their coats?  She is super comfy and is warm enough to transition into spring.

I paired it with a 60's dress I got from eBay and I am totally in love with the collar. It is the type of dress you can just throw on with some tights and brogues for a super smart look.

Only downside is that as the dress is polyester it is only cold weather appropriate and has now been put away until next year.

Don't you think they work well together?

So that is it for me, for now I hope to be back soon.
Ciao for now.

Hurry up Spring - Laura Ashley SS14

Hi Guys,
How are we? I'm drafting this while sitting on the train to work. I figure write when the feeling strikes me, so train to work it is.
Before Christmas the lovely ladies at Laura Ashley invited to preview their lovely SS14 selection and I had been planning to blog about it but time ran away so here it finally is. Which is quite funny as it's just launched! 
As I've said before Laura Ashley is one of my favourite British brands and I must say their collections never fail to excite me.

Don't you love the red and blue mix!!

Spring is a funny time of the year, its about getting your layers right but I never get it right! I guess its one of life's puzzles.
That's why this blouse from the SS14 collection would definitely be a must have for me as It's easily convertible. For colder days I'd layer it up under a dress, a snuggly cardi, tights & boots. For warmer ones I'd add pumps, a denim skirt & top it off with a messy bun. Aren't the pearls pretty!

I also love this red dress!!

For me it's the perfect mixture of work and personality. I am not a fan of boring work suits or constant grey. I think you'd agree we get enough of that with the British sky at times.
My favourite item from the collection would be this pink gingham dress.

I love the vintage feel to it, I imagined wearing it while frolicking in a field & eating a picnic. Sticky jam sarnies, strawberries and pink lemonade would be my picnic basket must haves.

There were so many pretty items, I wish I could have taken them all home!
Look elephants!!

I would definitely recommend popping along to your local Laura Ashley store to check the new season out.
I hope your having a great week.
Ciao for now

Finding my inner Hippy!

Hi Guys,

How are we?
Can you believe Christmas is round the corner? I hope you are getting prepare for the flurry of Christmas spirit coming your way. I have a couple of giveaways lined up next month!

I am finding myself drawn to my boho/hippy style more and more lately. I think it's just the time of year. My look allows me to layer up and well with how chilly it is, that really helps.

Not to worry I haven't lost the love for my brogues.

Today I went with a skirt I picked up in a local charity shop. This was actually a little tight so I removed the waist band and added an elastic one, as there was loads of fabric.

I added my long sleeve black top, a cardi from New Look and my  Minnetonka boots.
It is such a comfy outfit.

I think the look also suits my natural curls well. People are often surprised how curly my hair is as it straightens so well, I actually was asked if I had a perm this week and I was like... Nope, just washed it!!! :)

I also piled on the accessories and I was done. Excuse the close up on my bust (:


I think it is nice to have a number of looks, I don't like to be pigeon holed. I like to use clothes to express how I am feeling. I guess at the moment I am chilled out and happy.

Hence this silly pic, I had to include from the outtakes!!!

I hope you are having a great week.

Take care
Ciao for now
