Engagement parties, hangovers, in-laws and the supernatural.... a lot to fit into 2 days!

Well... where to start??

Friday night........ Went to our friend's engagement party as planned. Was such a  good night. Everyone was there, nearly everyone had drinks on the go so were merry and the girlie's had a well over due boogie. It was just so nice to have everyone together having a giggle. Been far too long. I had a slight bit too much to drink, so to speak, but hopefully didn't make a fool out of myself (they just couldn't shut me up, more than usual!) Another couple in our group, which happen to be a bezzie, were near enough forced into my house after the party and we watched TV, ate pizza, while I managed to brake one of my fave champagne flutes... not good! Was a awesome night.

Saturday did not start well.... I actually thought I was going to die, I can't remember the last time I had a hangover like that. lol. Was awful. But a couple of the girls came round while the other half was at the footy match. We had a cuppa, a gossip and watched American Idol, this then sorted me out. It was then time to go out for a wonderful meal at the Cowshed restaurant in Pattingham. Was beautiful food. We went with the in-laws and one set of his grandparents, whom of which I had never met before. They were lovely people who were really warm and welcoming. Then everyone came back to ours for coffee. Was a good end to a good night.

Today, we popped out to get a few things for my mom and had a cuppa with her and my lil sis, who I actually hadn't spoken to in quite a while. Then came home and just sat on the sofa all afternoon with a beer and a curry. Couldn't be better. We just watched supernatural for hours! We love it at the moment but I do get scared. We are on season 3, only started watching it a few weeks ago. Its brilliant!!!!! I can never decide who is better looking... Sam? or Dean??? I'm thinking Sam as he has the longer hair, but as I'm the eldest in my family I can relate to Dean. I think Sam's looks with Dean's personally would be the ultimate combination. Not as good looking as my other half though I'm afraid ;)

Got a girlie day out tomorrow with one of my bezzie's. Off into Birmingham some some retail therapy and lunch. Really looking forward to it. Haven't had a girlie outing in ages!

So.......... need to go and get my beauty sleep.

Ni' Night

Much hugs and kisses

Nearly the Weekend

I have had this week off work and I am LOVING it!! I could get used to this lol. Actually, to be honest I think I will be bored by the end of next week. After two weeks off I think I will be ready for work again. (I never thought I would see myself type those words!)

Quick update of my week so far...... Monday I did absolutely nothing all day. I was in bed until 3pm playing Sims3, which I am totally addicted too! I have two games on the go at the moment. I then did a bit of housework, cooked tea then went down to the pub to celebrate a good friends getting her accountancy results back and passing, so she is now a fully qualified accountant... Witt woo!!!! Tuesday not much else, did the groceries shop and took rubbish to the tip and then chilled. Yesterday was a brilliant day, I went over to Telford to meet up with a couple of girlie's I used to work with. Hadn't seen them in months. The little ones were there too. I hadn't seen the tiniest one since she was about 10 months old, she's 2 in August!!! She sooo cute though. The eldest is growing up far to fast and is a proper lady now. Today I am still on the sofa in my PJ''s watching top gear with a cuppa, heaven!

Must share my bargain of the week....

I love these shoes sooo much. I really wanted some tan loafers with tassells on at first. I saw a beautiful pair in River Island, but the 4 was too small and the size 5 was too big. I HATE it when that happens, just my luck. I went into Topshop and couldn't find the ones I had seen previously either. I then went into good old Primark and hey presto there they were. No they are not tan, and no they do not have tassells. But oh my days they are adorably cute. I love them fit perfect as well. and guess what...... £10!!!!!!!! I could not believe it!!! I love them. Haven't worn them yet, I think I will tomorrow.

Loving this look today:
Its just soooo cool... the best thing is that she has raid the parents wardrobe to get the shorts, full on vintage!!! I love anything with knee high socks but find it so hard to find some as I am only 5'1" my legs are short and knee high's normally come up my whole thigh :( I normally try rolling them over at the top. no sure if that's working the look though lol.

The weekend I am really really looking forward too. Tomorrow night I have an engagement party to go to of good friends and all of our lot will be there so will be a good knees up. Triple celebration as the same couple are celebrating their engagement, a birthday and brill exam results!!! Then Saturday we are going out for a lovely meal with the in-laws and meeting his grandparents for the first time. Excited. Will be nice to finally meet them.

Off to make another cuppa (I'm turning into my mother)

Speak Soon

much love

Catch Up Needed!

Been too long since I last posted.... sorry guys. Got quite a lot to catch up on get you guys up to speed! (",)

Been busy at work as colleague on hols so had to cover their role as well so busy busy busy.

Last weekend had another dose of my beloved monopoly this time at mates house and had wine and their little doggy (Vanilla) to accessorise. Had a brill night as usual. Played the Simpson's version this time... REAL MONEY... YES!!! at last!  Also took a trip to the city of Birmingham, had to get the other half some new clobber.  Had a really nice day as stopped off in cafe rouge for a drink and some olives and bread. Was so nice to get out of Wolves. So gonna be going there more often.

We didn't do valentines on the 14th Feb, due to work commitments. We had a beautiful night on Friday instead. I got SPOILT!! I got banished upstairs for the best part of an hour while he was sorting things out. When I was allowed back down stairs there were candles everywhere, table was laid, fresh bread with olive oil and balsamic where on there too and of course sparkling rose with raspberries in the glass! How swanky. Then the food came.... yummy... I had been given an open seafood lasagna with cockles, mussels, prawns, creme fraiche and lemon zest, with was served with a roasted broccoli. (I had never heard of it either) SOOOOOOO NICE though. Blew me away to be honest. So special and tasty.  Then we had chocolate melting pudding with pecan nuts and posh vanilla ice cream. I couldn't believe it. I'm not gonna let him get away with saying he can't cook again! lol.

Last night.... well...... we went to the first xfactor live tour at the LG arena Birmingham. I had brought them as an xmas present. When the time came round to it I was a bit like this is so last year the contestants are boring now. (Apart from Liam from One Direction as he is from Wolves and his dad works with my best mate's dad). But OMG its was really really good.  I never realised how talented most of them were. Rebbecca blew me away absolutely astonishing. Especially that dance song 'you gotta show me love' or whatever its called. Paije is so under estimated. He gave my goosebumps the second he opened this mouth. Cher wasn't as good as I hoped, Aiden still cocky, Wagner still absolute shite but One Direction really rocked the place. The energy they have is incredible. Matt of course closed the show and was just as talented as I thought. Can not believe a man can reach those notes!

Loving this look today:
Firstly, how amazing is this ladies hair??Q?!?Q!? Actually makes me wanna rip mine out lol. I love the way this is so effortless but looking stunning. loving the high waisted shorts. I need some to keep the lumps and bumps at bay. Can't believe she just got a top and cut the shoulders out and it looks that good! I need to start altering and amending my clothes.

I have been raiding my moms wardrobe recently and came away with some great finds. My fave is an amazing vintage jumper that she has told me is probably about 30 years old!!! Its cream with pale pink hearts and 'x's on. I will  have to post a pics next time :)

Manged to meet up with some of the girlie's last week. Long time no see. Haven't seen anyone this week though :( but I know have two weeks booked off work so I'm sure I can make up for it. Miss my girlie's!!!! <3

Anyway off to Birmingham again today to do a spot of shopping with the other half. Not for me again. Might try and sneak into a few shops to get the loafers I crave hehe.

Peace out

Much love

When TV met Monopoly on a Saturday Night

Had a good night last night, filled with laugh and fun :)

I watched Black Swan last night.  I have been wanting to see it for ages! Natalie Portman is beautiful and my god she can dance, what a talent.  How can she act and dance so well?  Surely she should only be able to do one or the other???  Very good film, highly recommended.  Wasn't what I was expecting though.  Had to use my brain an awful lot to stop me getting confused and I found it hard to tell what was reality and what was the characters imagination.  Over all a very good film which came with a lot of jealousy of all the beautiful and perfectly formed female members of the cast. lol.

Then I went onto watch Million Pound Drop. Why have I never given this Saturday night programme my attention before I will never know.  Amazing!  Was on he edge of my seat and screaming at the TV.

Monopoly, obviously, was to follow.  I was the first one out the game!  GUTTED!  Oh well, its the taking part that counts I suppose.  Was such a laugh though.  We have the then and now, world edition version which has credit cards instead of money.  This is brilliant for the novelty factor but I miss having the feeling of lots of cash sitting next to you and making you feel rich!??!?!?!  I want my pound notes back!!!
This is my fave look I have seen today. I love the skirt sooooo much.. I'm loving natural tones together paired up with black and even burgundy/red at the moment.  I haven't yet put any of my own looks up onto LookBook yet, but me and my mate have organised a LookBook session next weekend so hopefully will have some looks in a couple of weeks.

Having a lazy Sunday today, but got to dash as I must do at least a little bit of washing and ironing otherwise I will turning up at work in the morning in my 10 year old PJ's which have holes in. :)

Will post again soon

My First Blog


First EVER blog...... not really sure what to talk about.  I'm a normal girl who works 9-5'ish and loves her mates and other half and struggles to make ends meet like the rest of them.

Thought I would create a blog to channel my energy into something other than spending money on things I don't need. lol.

I will try and blog as much as possible.

I have to mention the outfit below: (see link)

I love this look!! I have this top and think the skirt are amazing! I really need to get some loafers, they are definatley my next purchase.  This outfit is quirky and geeky but I love it!

I have not long discovered lookbook and think it's the best thing since sliced bread. :)

Will write more, just as soon as I have thought of something interesting to write.

Speak soon
