Rose Tinted

I'm really enjoying everything at the moment. Been spending lots of quality time with friends and family, been enjoying wild nights out and getting stuck into my new role at work. It has all been rather busy so I have been savouring my days off and using them to catch up on reading. I used to read loads but then blogging happened! I felt like I never had a minute spare so getting back into reading has really helped me relax after work. I am slowly working my way through the Song of Fire and Ice series and I picked up a copy of The Vampire Lestat in a charity shop so I am also reading that as a break from Game of Thrones.

I had a day off on Tuesday which always means going to WW class, cooking lots of meals for the rest of the week and lounging about. This is what I wore:


I bought these lovely boots on eBay for just £12.99, they seem to be sold out now but there are lots of other sellers on there. I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be able to walk in them because I never wear heels but I have been wearing them to work and they are very comfy. Money well spent!


I picked up my new coat from the lovely Rose Tinted girls who wrote a guest post for me at the In Aid of Vintage fair on Sunday, at £20 I think it was a bargain. My friend spotted it and knew that I would love the animal print collar. If you don't live in Cardiff you can also buy from them online and I think they sell on ASOS too.

Just because I can... some photos of me playing with Sookie.



Look at her little ears swooshing around, she reminds me of Dobby but of course she is much prettier ;)

So glad I bought a new coat because it is -5 in South Wales at the moment, I even have a hot water bottle with me in work. I really hope it doesn't snow this weekend as I'm heading to Plus London Two.
How are you going to be spending this cold weekend? If I wasn't going to London I would be on the sofa with loads of layers, a cup of tea and a good film.

  13. Aww it is the Sookie, what a cutie! I've been really wanting to adopt a dog lately but I know I have to wait until my boyfriend and I get our own place, it is very boohoo, I don't want to wait. I really need to take more time to read, it is in the plans but I always end up procrastinating on the internet.

  18. I'm sorry but Sookie is going to have to be sent away to the prison for cute dogs. For too much cuteness. You look adorable yourself though! I love the coat-and-wedge boots combo :3 xx

  19. The coat is gorgeous! It's such a nice colour on you and I really like the collar. Oh and I'm thieving your dog by the way...

  20. I love those boots/shoes! eBay you say? hmm... Must look better on that site! I never seem to find the pretty things (in my size!) I also really love your dress :) I also never seem able to find pretty floral things... haha. Okay, anyways, have fun in London! XO Nikki

  21. That coat is gorgeous, what a great find! I've got some very similar boots from ebay and I love them, I was worried I wouldn't wear them much because of the heel but they're so comfy, I wear them all the time.
    I really need to start reading more too, I never seem to find the time for it any more! I love the Game of Thrones TV show, really want to start reading the books.
