Work outfit of the day

Every Friday I work with my Mum. She owns a Glass business and I just tend to make teas, man the phones and be a seceratary I guess. I like it as I get to spend time with Mum which I don't get the chance to do as much as I used to :(. I try and dress smart but not too formal as we normally go out to the cinema/dinner after work. I woke up late today and this was just a quick outfit so nothing that interesting!

Sorry about the messy kitchen setting I'm not the cleaner :P
Top: Republic (I've never liked anything in there until recently, it's all pretty and floral :) )
Cardigan: Topshop
Necklace: Ebay
Clinique city block
YSL Touche Eclat
Erase Paste
Maybelline Dream moussey foundation stuff
Benefit Coralista Blush
Lemon Aid eyeshadow primer
Benefit Eyeshadow creme in 'your dates your brother'
Benefit Eyeshadow powder in 'nice melons'
Dior Blackout mascara
Just a bit of Carmex
Jeans: Dorothy Perkins
Ballet Pumps: New Look

Just a little post, haven't done an outfit post recently...

Slinky the Dachsund

In my dreams this would be the perfect little doggy for me :) I just had to post some pictures (All photos taken from google)

Now how do I track down legitmate breeders...


Gavin apparently doesn't like Dachshunds and wants to get a working Spaniel...HUMPH!!

I'm still getting one, and if it's a girl I've decided on willow for a name, and obviously SLinky if I get a boy :) Oh the joys of hope

      Wish List...

      Being at work in front of a computer is a bad idea...I've been browsing through Topshop's website and have found a few things which may or may not end up in my basket.

      Feather Angel Sleeve Tunic

      I really like this, would look sooo good with some skinny jeans. All though I live in dresses and skirts at the moment so this might not be a great idea to purchase...

      Daisy Zip Print Bandeau

      I rather like this too, and don't think it's too expensive for topshop either. I do however have so many florals in my wardrobe and another top might be pushing to justifiable...

      Vintage Lace Tunic

      This is amazing, so me! The £40 is a bit excessive so I might have to go in store and try this on before I think about buying

      Tawny Owl Vest

      I love birds, owls and swallows being my favourite. This vest is perfect and I'm sure my Mum would steal it too! The only problem is the neckline is quite high which doesn't tend to suit me but I could customise it I guess..

      Floral Shirred Bandeau

      My cousin wore this to a hen party recently and when Is aw the photos I loved it. Would be perfect for my holiday but when I look in my wardrobe I see so many strapless dresses...for £22 I think I can handle it :P

      Knitted short cable jumper

      I really like this, not very summery but still perfect for the Winter. I'd love this to snuggle in, might be a wait though as I don't see me buying this during the Summer...

      And Topshop turned into other shops....

      River Island Draped Skirt

      Very Pretty, I could dress this up or dowmn so it's definitely worth the money (I know still trying to justify spending money)

      I saw lots of other pretty things but didn't save them as I was supposed to be 'working' not shopping or reading everyone's blogs...I did however buy a few dresses on MaxC and a few bits from ebay (lots of bits actually, will post when they come through, I'm so excited for the parcels :) eee)

      I do however have to curb my spending now as in two weeks time all my money will be going on a mortgage and bills...:( boring! Luckily I have £1500 saved up for my holiday so I'm sorted for that. Might post about what I want to get but to be honest most of it is stuff from Forever 21, A&F, M.A.C, Guess etc....but it might be worth seeing if anyone recommends anything.

      Anywho better get off to get some much needed cuddles from the man :)

      OOTD's and recent shopping splurges

      Well it's been a busy few days. Been working lots, going to the gym loads (I've got until the 28th August to sort myself out...), and shopping of course...
      Outfit for shopping...
      Dress: New Look
      Cardigan: Topshop
      Leggings: New Look
      Necklace: Asos

      I'm always a happy bunny when I'm shopping so it was a good day for me :) apart from having to go to work till midnight after but oh well, more money towards my Speedy :)
      My lovely Mum gave me some bits and pieces to take back for her and let me use the money to treat myself, which of course I did. I also took some money out of my holiday savings just to treat myself after a 50hour week.

      First stop Lush

      After my first dabble with Lush I now love it! I got the sweetie stack of soaps with 'Honey I washed the kids', 'Rockstar' and 'I should coco'. They all smell fantastic, I just need a soap tray next to the sink to stop Mum telling me off for leaving soapyness everywhere...
      I really liked the massage bars I got before so I got 'Strawberry feels forever' and 'Mange Too' both smell really sweet and yummy. Because I bought two I got a free tin which is handy to take them to the gym in. I then got the 'Comforter' bubble bar, I don't really have baths I'm more of a shower person but thought I'd try it out so after a stressful day of work and going to the gym twice I had a lovely PINK bubble bath, it was soooo good :)
      The last little thing is the 'Whoosh' temple balm, it's been a saviour for keeping my focussed this week, a difficult job!

      I then went into New Look and a small little boutiquey shop near me. Oh and of course Primark but I only got a vest and underwear, no need for pictures!

      I love this little jacket, it was reduced from £28 down to £18. It's so pretty and I was quite surprised to find it in New Look of all places. I can't wait to wear it and will post an outfit post when I do.
      This sparkly vest top would look really nice with skinny jeans and heels, and it was only £6 :) reduced from £22. I was rather happy. I got home and found my Mum had bought this too...we have really similar taste apparently!
      My Mum bought a green maxi dress from this little shop near where I live but the sizing was wrong and it looked terrible so I took it in to get a refund, they refused to give me a refund and I initially couldn't find anything I liked. Then I saw the rail full of maxidresses and found this beauty. I love maxidresses and I love peacocks so the print on this really attracted me. It is extremely slimming on which is a bonus for me and with my mum's exchange only cost me £5 woop :D

      Last stop was The Body Shop
      They had an offer on the shower gels, one for £6 or four for £ of course I had to get four, cherry, strawberry, lemon and satsumas. They all smell yummy so I didn't really mind. The travel sized goodies were buy four and get a free make-up bag (this was the last one left, I couldn't resist!) I got the foot spray stuff, this was a godsend on my duke of edinburgh expeditions and hopefully will be nice on my tootsies after traipsing around theme parks and shops all day on holiday, and some more shower stuff. All been put away for holiday of course. The blue poofer, as I call them, is for Gavin, he keeps mentioning he wants one so thought I'd treat him...

      When I got home a whole heap of my ebay stuff and MaxC order had arrived. Oh this was such an amazing day for me :)
      Lilac Dress: £10
      Union Jack bag: £10.50
      Cream Butterfly Belt: £6
      Pink Flower Belt: Free
      I will definitely be revisiting MaxC, really affordable and lovely items, also really quick delivery. Overall a very good site.
      O.P.I Nail Varnishes in (L-R)
      'Got a Date to Knight'
      'Purple with a purpose'
      'Suzi loves Sydney'
      'Italian love affair'
      I love O/P.I nail varnishes ever since my Auntie gave me a gold sparkly one when I was about 11. I've got anohter one on the way. These were only £5.89 each which I thought was good for O.P.I nail varnishes.
      Silver Key necklace £2.99
      Gold Camera necklace £5.99
      Blue earrings £1
      Panda brooch £1.99
      These all pretty much sum me up, the key necklace is supposed to represent Bella's cottage keys from the Twilight books but I love key jewellery anyway. The camera necklace has a pretty pink flower on it too, two of my favourite things, photography and flowers. I love the nautical trend, almost as much as florals, hence the earrings. And Pandas are my favourite animal, they fascinate me, I'm planing a month long trip to work with them at the end of my degree, can't wait!!

      I'm still waiting for a few other bits but these made my day on Monday. But seeing as it's Thursday other things are making me smile. Tuesday I went to the gym and then met up with the bestest who I took to see Eclipse, having free cinema tickets is quite handy. Plus Kat said it looks like I've lost weight so it's good to know all my hard work at the gym is paying off :D
      Dress: MaxC
      Vest: H&M
      Cardigan: Topshop
      Leggings: New Look
      Belt: MaxC
      Necklace: Ebay

      Wednesday was pretty standard, Work 12-6, gym after and chilling with my Mum in the evening so no outfit post for then...

      Today however I've been to the gym, cleaned the house and sorted my room. I am so daunted by the prospect of having to pack everything. I am such a hoarder, it's going to take forever and I can't get motivated to do it... Should hopefully be seeing Kat today, not sure what we're doing so thought I'd make an effort with my outfit.

      Dress: Primark
      Cardigan: Topshop
      Belt: MaxC
      Necklace: Topshop
      Leggings: New Look

      And here's ae picture of me and my little puppy Honey, she's been keeping me company whilst I write this hugely long blog....
