Welcome to the world

A huge welcome to world to my gorgeous new niece Amelie, she was born 29/01/09 at 11.54pm.

Apart from her arrival its been a pretty dull week. I got paid today, so popped into town but not much caught my eye really. Tomorrow i'm off to Manchester for a night out, i should really have packed by now, but can't decide what to wear yet!

My current obsessions

I tend to go through phases of buying and wearing certain styles. Currently its
  • Polka Dots
  • Stripes
  • Coloured opaques
  • Headbands
  • Bows, on clothes, in my hair and on jewellery.
  • Textures, especially velvet and lace.
  • Grey mixed with neon

Thats pretty much what i'm going to be wearing this spring!

I've been feeling a bit uninspired recently so haven't had many exciting outfits to post :( but i was asked for a picture of my grey jumper dress on so here it is. I wore it to work this week with red tights, a silver caged heart necklace and grey platform mary janes. Also with lots of eyeliner and red lipstick.

Northampton Shoe Museum

I went to uni in Northampton, a town famous for shoes and boots. The film Kinky Boots was set there and they have a fab museum which has a famous shoe i'm a shoe girl i visited a few times.

They have a section on the history of shoes and information on shoes from around the world. One of the pairs of shoes are
heel less courts made in the 1950's, and now sported by the likes of Victoria Beckham. It makes me smile how trends come back around and are touted as being original.

Meadowhall trip!

I went on my first ever trip to Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield at the weekend.

Its HUGE! It was really busy and Topshop was like a jumble sale but i had a really good day and got loads of new things. Now i'm not buying until payday!

I am a total Lush addict, the products look so pretty in my bathroom and the smells are amazing(though the shops smell can be overpowering!). The staff are usually really helpful too. I went there in the new year and they were doing a special offer where if you spend £20 you get a gift set of your choice for free.

This is what i bought

This is my free gift, normally sold for around £25.

My top 5 lush products in no particular order

  • Youki-hi bath ballistic, smells divine.
  • Flosty gritter bubble bar, makes loads of bubbles and sparkly water.
  • Cupcake face mask, perfect for my skin.
    Rock star soap, smells gorgeous and looks pretty.
  • Whipstick lip balm, this is always in my handbag.

I'm pretty excited about which is set to launch in spring. Its going to be the sister site of Net-a-Porter which i love browsing but can never afford. The outnet is going to feature discounted designer items and should be fabulous!

Recent outfit

I got this lace dress in primark before Christmas, its gorgeous and i'm hunting down the cream version for Spring. I wore it with black opaques, black cardigan with a gold elasticated belt on my waist. I wore my panther cuff and oversized black bag and my purple t bar heels.
