Face of the Day: Smiles all around

Hi All!!!

Here's a rare shot of me SMILING.....

Growing up I wore braces to get my teeth straight after a botched job at the emergency dentist when I fell over aged 9 and chipped both of my two front teeth. Ever since then I have always felt paranoid about doing open mouth smiles. Even with straight teeth I still rarely do it, that's why if you take a peek through my blog you will notice 98% of them I have my mouth closed. Sometimes I don't even think I know how to smile properly! Ha ha! But more recently I have started to embrace the dreaded open mouth smile!

Anyways this is just a quick face of the day photo, you can just about see my wavy hair from briefly using my Babyliss hair wand (review/tutorial coming soon).

But for those of you who feel like me every now and then, why don't you do a post like this and link back to me... I would be intrigued on your thoughts on something not many people have issues with. I actually like this photo of me smiling open mouthed and this is rare.

Hope you liked.

Currently loving..... Animal motif jumpers

Hi All!!

I seem to be leaning towards items of clothing with animal motif's on more often these days and spotted this fab jumpers on the Topshop website.....

Teamed with casual jeans or simple leggings these jumpers would spruce up any winter outfit.

What do you think?

Sunday Snow Day

Hi All!!

So how are you all coping with the winter weather at the moment? I use to love snow, I mean don't et me wrong it is so pretty and when you play in it or walk your pets in it it's really fun but sometimes it can be an inconvenience when having to travel.

Last week I showed you a few photos of the rabbits in the snow, well here is a mixture of myself, a rabbit and a dog having fun in the snow...

Anyone got any snowy blog posts they wanna share with me?

Haul: Midi bodycon dresses

Hi All!!

I picked up these two midi bodycon dresses from Birmingham last week...

£5 each

I saw this one first and thought it had a very grunge-esque feel about it so for £5 I thought i'd better buy it..

Then on my way to the till I also spotted this one for the same price. The same style but a splash effect prit mixed in with neon shades.....

The dresses are the exact same style and have splits on both sides at the bottom. With mesh cut outs along the ribs down to the hips to make them sexier then they already are.

I never thought I would have any midi bodycon dresses in my wardrobe because I usually wear a dress short or very long, never in between, so these are a fabulous addition to my wardrobe. I think these could be worn for an evening or party look, you just got to match them up with the right accessories and heels.

Photos: My rabbits and winter weather

Hi All!!

I wanted to show you all some really rather cute photos of the rabbits from the past few weeks, especially a few in this snow also....

 Here's Leo enjoying his first time in the snow...

It's Bolt and Fudge first winter, they are ever so inquisitive and growing up fast....

 Missy enjoying her munch box treat (tutorial coming soon)...

Missy and Leo share a bunny kiss...

I do love my babies!!! I check on them twice a day, they get a good fuss and then fresh water, a handful of pellets and unlimited amounts of hay. I will be doing a few posts in the up coming weeks on different ways you can entertain your bunny. Rabbits love treats and toys so some of these posts might inspire you if you have your own.

If you have a rabbit or are thinking of getting a rabbit and need more information feel free to message me or check out the rabbit welfare website:

Hope you liked!!


Outfit of the Day: Frost and Fur

Blouse: River Island

Trends: Monochrome

Hi All!!

Have you spotted this trend yet? If not then you will soon! Mixing up the two most commonly worn shades is pretty simple to do, you just got to find the right items.

This trend can be worn in so many different ways to suit everyone's own personal style; just take a peek at these items I spotted on the Motel Rocks website for nights out...

Outfit of the Day: Chunky Vintage

Hi All!!

Here is an outfit from earlier on in the week, sorry it's a bit blurry i'm still trying to figure out how to get really clear photos of my outfits for you all...

Cardigan: Vintage
Top: River Island
Belt: Primark
Bodycon skirt: Vintage Topshop
Brogues: River Island

I got this cardigan from the Clothes Show Live 2012 for £15 I think, its Mohair and so big and chunky I love it! I've been wearing it a lot recently and it goes with so much!

Haul: A new polka dot and bling phone case

Hi All!!

So I upgraded from my Blackberry Torch to an iPhone 4 just before Christmas and didn't even think about using a case for it until a friend from work offered me one of her many cases to use until I bought my own. So recently whilst have a browse online I decided to purchase my own new case and here it is....

I bought it from Amazon for £7.99 and I love it. The bow is the size of the width of the case and so very 'blinging' and for those of you who remember my iPod case who know just how much I love the bling. Mix that up with some polka dots and its fair to say a truly fabulous case I now own.

I would also recommend this seller as the delivery was fast! What do you think?

My 2013 Santoro-London 'Gorjuss 'Diary

Hi All!!

For Christmas along with a few other gifts, my best friend bought me this fabulous Santoro- London 'Gojuss' Diary and I have to say I have completely fallen in love....

Anyone who is close to me knows that I need my diary with me almost everywhere I go. I don't have an overly busy social  life, but I do have a busy schedule when it comes to singing with The Retro Roqabellas. So whenever people do try and arrange nights out, drinks at the pub, cinema trips or anything else the first thing I would do is check my diary.

Its nice that I got a very pretty diary this year compared to the simple black diary I used in 2012 from the poundshop. There is so much detail throughout.....

It also comes with a few stickies for events, meetings, birthdays etc.....

I believe these were sold in Boots before Christmas but the link is above so I think you should take a peek at the website. I am considering purchasing a iPhone sleeve myself as I really like their designs and this is one of my fav Christmas gifts.

Simple Storage Ideas

Hi All!!

So I was thinking, and I'm sure many of you will agree with this, how on earth can I store my bobby pins because I am forever loosing them. Well after receiving this small terracotta saucer for Christmas I knew what I wanted to do with it....

I don't know why I never thought of doing something like this sooner? Can you see Gizmo's feet in the background? That cat can't bear to stay away when I'm taking photos for blogging haha!

Glittery Shoes

Hi All!!

Today I wore my silver glitter brogues which I rarely wear...

Shoes: Primark

You might remember this haul video when I bought them in the 2012 January's sales and managed to purchase them for only £6!!! I don't seem to find bargains like these anymore it's such a shame, hopefully I can get my bargain queen crown back in 2013.

Is anyone else like me in this case with a certain pair of shoes or clothing that you don't want to wear too often for fear of damaging them in anyway, so you limit yourself to only a handful of times a year? Or am I the only one? Haha!

Outfit Inspiration

Hi All!!

Here is the first outfit inspiration post of 2013 and I thought I would create something that's nice for a quick drink with friends or maybe a first date outfit in the month of January....

All items are from Topshop and I think I may even be sporting this sort of outfit soon for work haha.... but without the heels!

What do you think?

Haul: Yankee Candles

Hi All!!!

Hands up who loves these??

Midsummers Night - Wild Passion Fruit - Red Velvet - Clean Cotton

I do adore the fragrance candles and I believe we all need Yankee Candles in our lives. I purchased these tester sizes from the card shop; Nicoles for around £1.60 or something similar. I could purchase the big sizes in the glass containers however I am forever changing my mind on what scent I wish my bedroom to smell of. These candles last a few days to a week depending on how long you have them lit for. 

Does anyone like the above scents? Whats your favourite Yankee Candle?


Catch up: Outfits over Christmas

Hi All!!

I thought it best I do a little catch up post, I have been so busy over the Christmas period with work, Christmas shopping and performances I really haven't had chance to blog. So a very belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a fabulous Festive season and I look forward to blogging properly in 2013.

Now... here is a little catch up post of the outfits I have worn for events over the Christmas period that I haven't had chance to post about until now.....

Clothes Show Live 2012
It is tradition for me to attend this even every year and I was not disappointed at all! Loved the catwalk and of course the shopping! I purchased a Vintage cardigan, a Celeb Boutique copy dress, House of Holland undies and plenty of jewellery.

Blouse: Jane Norman
Leopard Bow: Headscarf
Leggings: River Island
Leopard Boots: Office

Works Christmas Party
The annual work Christmas do was held at the Radisson, Heathrow. Another spectacular awards show and party although I hate the fact that it was buffet food and we had nowhere to sit down?!!!

Christmas Day
I spent Christmas Day at my mom and step-dads farm this year, something different and really authentic too. We had cockrel instead of turkey and the whole family spent the afternoon at the farm with a lot of fun and laughter. I visited my dad on the night which I almost didn't do because I was SO tired. A great day and sme fabulous gifts too including driving lessons, a new coat and a fab new Samsung wifi digital camera.

Jumper: Hypnotic
Lipstick: No7 Coral
