Week so far...

After yet another manic weekend (turning into a bit of a party animal) I've had a rather busy week. Work has been busy and I've made an effort to be sociable on my days off. I would love to rest this weekend but I'm going to #ldnlunch and then a 90s fancy dress party. I'm going to do my best Richey/Nicky early 90s Manics impression for the party, donning lots of leopard print and eyeliner.








I treated myself to the Nicki Minaj Viva Glam lipstick, it looks coral but you put it on and it is shocking pink. I love it!

I've been trying to spend some time with my dog Sookie, we all fight for her affection in my house and I've been staying at my mates a lot the past few weeks and I really missed her. (what a loser) She has had loads of treats and hugs and I let her sleep at the bottom of my bed :)

I spent my day off with my friend in The Pot eating some amazing sweet potato, satay and coconut soup and enjoying some lovely loose leaf tea. It really is a cute little place, I highly recommend it! It has a great selection of yummy cakes and veggie/vegan food. We took some cakes back for our friends, I wasn't going to have one... had half then scoffed the other half later, ha!

Listened to Britney, standard daily occurrence.

Celebrated St David's Day with lots of daffodils and a little display in work highlighting our Welsh collection.

This is what I have been wearing to work this week:

(sorry about the lack of blank walls/flooring/skirting board, still renovating)


I picked up the denim jacket for £4 on eBay and I've been wearing it everyday, I love it! A lot of these clothes are things I've had for a long time. Nothing fits me anymore so I'm struggling to work out new combinations and I'm getting a little bored of the things I have. I'm going to try and save money and recycle and make alterations to things I already have.

Anyway, Happy St David's Day and hopefully see a few of you on the weekend at ldnlunch!

  2. Seeing that someone else listens to Britney Spears occasionally makes me feel a whole lot self-assured that when I swan around at home singing Crazy to myself, I am not the only one (; x

  7. I love pink lipstick, the pinker the better, I'm not sure the shade works on me but I love it anyway. Aww, Sookie, such a cutie! Those cupcakes look yum and I love a good denim jacket, denim jackets are so versatile.
