Bird Hat, Converse And Not Forgetting The Strawberry Sunglasses...



You know when you want to surprise someone and it goes wrong?

Well that is what kinda day we has yesterday!!

Me and the youngest two spent 2 and a half hours on a bus, for no reason!!

Well there was a reason but we missed it!!

A day we will never forget!!

What I wore

Converse - c/o JD sports
Jeans-Abercrmbie and Fitch,

Getting all dressed up and wearing jeans is not the best outfit to wear on a red hot bus journey. 

Melting at the bus stop as the burning hot sun was shining down on us! Such a sun trap there. Waiting for a bus replacement, that turned up late, as the trains are not running at the minute, was not ideal. Then we got on the bus that takes us round all the houses and took 1 and a half hours instead of 40 minutes!! As the 40 minute bus pulled up behind as our bus took off..

On a day we was going to surprise hubby/dad from work.

From the start of our journey to his work it took us 2 and a half hours to get to him, to find out he had finished work and gone home.

When he picked up our messages, he was home.

So a trip back home by bus, after buying water, but thankfully we caught the quicker bus...


I found this photo when we got home from London...

Mr bird photo bombed my picture, it sure looks like I am wearing a bird hat!!
But first, let me take a selfie...
Loving these sunglasses, mini me brought last year...



2 pair of Converse my hubby picked me up in the internet sales..


A spot of up-cycling..

Hows everyone's holidays going?

Good I hope?

What's In My Bag : Dash Beach Bag Review...

The weather is amazing and I am so looking forward to taking the children to the beach. Yesterday the post man delievered me this lovely raspberry stripe tote bag from Dash to review. 

A perfect sized bag for what I would need.

 Not to big, so you can find things quickly and not to small, so you can fit just enough in. 

This bag will come in very handy for a day out to the beach.





What's in my bag?

Everything for a day at the beach.

Sun cream, jelly sandals, towel...

Phone, camera, money...

and train tickets..


I packed my bag straight away, with my essentials for a day out to the seaside. Whoops forgot the sunglasses in the picture!! being on my head!!

Now my bag is all packed, I can not wait to go to the beach with the children.

About the bag
  • Raspberry Stripe Tote, a classic pop of colour for every ensemble.
  • With navy pu trims and durable canvas straps, this beach bag is the ideal summer accessory.
  • Finished with a cotton lining and zip closure.
  • Fabric Detail: 100% Canvas 
  • Wash Inst: Wipe With Damp Cloth 
  • Style: Tote
  • Was £19.00 now £12.00

What I think of the bag

It is a nice medium size bag that fits all the above in perfect. I like the fact it has a zip along the top so nothing can drop out. It fits nicely over your shoulder without hanging down to low. There is no inside pocket, which is a shame as I like to put my phone or purse inside a pocket for easy access. The first thing my 17 year old son as was "is your bag designer?" I could tell he thought it looked nice and expensive. Loving the pattern, it is very stylish. I think it is a great buy for only £12.00.

About this post-

I got sent this bag for review. All thoughts are my own honest opinion and I did not get paid for this post ...
