We've had a hectic few days, on Friday a load of builders turned up at my door unannounced to fit new radiators, extractor fans and do something to our roof. I knew they were coming at some point in the near future but didn't know they were just going to appear! Luckily i was up and dressed early as my friend was coming over to see me and Seb in her new car.

I was wearing
Cream lace dress-Primark, Navy cardi-La Redoute, Navy tights
Then on Saturday me and Seb went to stay at my parents for the night as i was going out with my friends who live near them. However fate had other ideas as the one dress i took to wear out ripped right across my boobs when i put it on, and i literally had nothing else to wear as i hadn't even taken a spare outfit for the next day. So my Saturday night was spent with my parents in front of Casualty, the glamour!

I wore
Floral dress-Topshop, Mustard cardi-Forever 21, Black opaques and my Moustache necklace from ASOS
We spent all of Sunday at my parents, my oldest brother came around with my niece and nephew and it was my nieces 3rd birthday, she loved the Minnie Mouse outfit i chose for her!

Then we came home to an empty house as Phil was out playing football, but he had left me a little present of this cute lolly and notepad. Then today, me and Seb were having a lazy morning and there was a knock at the door and the builders had come back unannounced again! They hadn't finished on Friday(nobody told me) so were here for the day again. They were drilling through walls today and Seb was petrified by the noise and clung to me sobbing for ages. It meant we had to miss Sebs first dentist appointment so we need to get him rebooked in.

This evening i'm treating my hands and nails by using these which i got in a gift set for my birthday :)
Well i hope all of your weekends were more chilled then mine!

In the navy

Yesterday i braved Ikea with my mum. Ikea on a weekend and with my mum are both stressful but put together i was expecting mega stress, but we had a lovely time. I needed to go to start getting some weddingy bits and i did quite well getting pretty much everything i needed and i think we decided on our table centrepieces.
We then went on a old mill which has been converted into shops just for a little look and then i came home to an empty house. Its unheard of for me to have the house to myself, Phil and Seb were at Phils parents and i didn't know what to do with myself!
Heres what i wore :)

Navy dress-H&M, navy tights-Oasis
Pearl and gold heart necklace-Forever 21Cream bow belt-TopshopPumps-Primark
I still love this dress so much!
I also love the necklace, but the heart fell off while we were in Ikea, its the first time i've worn and i wasn't exactly doing anything to it so i'm a bit dissapointed, hoping i can fix it though.

Last night, Phil went out with the boys and i stayed at home and enjoyed the peace, watched casualty and ate pick n mix.

These shoes of mine

Sarenza are currently offering one lucky blogger the chance to become an ambassador!
You all know i love a good shoe so i knew i had to enter this one!

I have long loved the Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon shoes, and when i spied this pair on the Sarenza site i got a little bit excited as they are THE perfect wedding shoes and that is what i have been looking for.
The colour couldn't be more perfect for my wedding and lets face it they are just gorgeous! However with a £143 price tag they are not cheap and as a stay at home mum i don't have money to burn these days.
I emailled a picture of them to my mum who in turn showed them to all the girls at her work and the verdict was ohmygod, they are amazing!
I pondered ordering them and even tweeted about my indecision all the while checking back on the site to make sure they were still in stock, they were, one pair left in my size.
So, i ordered them! These lovlies will soon be winging their way to me.

Ins and Outs

I have been sent Coco before Chanel DVD from LoveFilm this week, i've been wanting to see it for ages. Have you seen it?

Cute socks, with the freezing weather we're having i've constantly had socks on my feet. How cute are these Topshop ones?!We have booked a mini holiday to Haven on the coast in April. I can't wait, its right by the beach(fingers crossed for sun) has indoor swimming pools and soft play for Seb.

This week i won £100 of spa vouchers! I've never been to a spa before so i'm really excited! Are there any treatments you recommend?

I'm really getting into my wedding planning now, we still need a photographer and i need a dress though!

Benefit high beam is amazing, i got some free in Glamour and haven't really used it until now but i love it.

My friend Clare is moving to Wales with her boyfriend in February. Obviously i'm happy for her but sad for me!

Annoying ebay buyers, seriously if you bid on something please pay for it!

And the biggie, i've put on weight. Bleurggh. I've not been that body confident since having Seb, i loved my bump but because it was so big, its not just pinged back into shape(i'm so envious of those ladies who snap back into shape!) and its covered in awful stretchmarks despite the creams i used and am still using. Anyway i've now put on some weight too and just feel horrible. I've ordered some aerobics DVD's(no way am i trying the 30 day shred again!) and am going to do them as much as i can as well as cutting out some of the rubbish in my diet.

A trip to the the library

Me and Seb popped to the library this morning, and also had a look around the few shops in our little town. Our Boots still had loads of half price Soap and Glory gift sets left but i resisted as i have soo much stuff to use up.
Its gone really cold again here, typical the day after we received a huge gas bill and vowed to cut down on the amount we use!

Black dress with cream lace detail-Dorothy Perkins, Grey cardi-La Redoute, 300D opaques-Matalan
Cameo print scarf-PrimarkPearl charm bracelet-MatalanPumps-Topshop
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend planned.

Nail of the day: Accessorize Rock Star Superstar

This is my fiest polish from Accessorize. I randomly added it onto an order i was placing as it was in the sale and I liked the name Rock Star Superstar!
To be honest i love the colour but i found the polish to be not that great. I had to apply quite a few coats and it still was streaky. It also chipped really quickly.
Its a shame as they have some lovely colours in the range and its really put me off buying from them again.

Fairytale(outfit and a couple of sale buys)

I felt a little bit fairytale-y in this outfit with the deer and the earrings. This outfit was from Sunday, me and Seb went to my parents for the day and we popped into town to have a look in the shops.

Dress with deer print skirt-H&M, leggings-Matalan
The Nightingale earrings-Petal JewelleryBlack ballet pumps-TopshopI didn't intend to buy anything but ended up buying a couple of bits.

Cream bow belt-Tosphop reduced to £5. I got this purely because i think it will look fab with my navy H&M dress.
Heart slippers- Topshop, also reduced to £5. I've seen these on quite a few blogs and they are soo cute. Though the make my feet look big and manly i think?!
Christmas cookies jar reduced to £2.40 in Sainsbury's. Put away in the cupboard for next year! I also got a cake stand in New Look of all places but i'll do a photo of that once i've baked something to go on it.

Finally a photo of Seb purely because i love his knitted waistcoat! xxxx

One Stop Plus

As a curvy girl, i am always interested in finding new places that cater for those us of with some junk in our trunk!
One Stop Plus does exactly that! Its your one stop for fashion in sizes 14-36. Its not a brand i had heard of before so when I was recently contacted and asked if i would like to try something from the site i thought i would give it a whirl!

I was sent this lace sleeved knitted dress. Its a bargain for £19, the material is really nice and soft and the lace sleeves don't irritate the skin on your arms. Its a nice comfy dress. I did find the arms a little bit long but thats probably because i am only 5 ft so don't have particularly long arms!
I paired with some bright smurf blue tights and my black bow shoes.
I'm thinking of wearing it with a bright coloured long sleeved top underneath next time to show through the lace.

The site has some really lovely pieces in and currently have a huge sale on. I'm loving this cardi with elbow patches to wear open over dresses.
Have you ever shopped with One Stop Plus?
