Red Buses And Pound Shop Banta!!


Over the weekend, I had a wardrobe freshen up. Anything I had not wore for a long long time, got cleared out. At Christmas I mention I was going to try and wear my best clothes more often. Then realised I had only wore my favourite London Buses dress {which my eldest son brought me as a present} once!

Most Popular Fragrance In Nottingham..

According to some research undertaken by Fragrance Direct, the most popular fragrance in Nottingham is Daisy By Marc Jacobs...


When it comes to buying perfume I am a little old fashioned. Whenever I have perfume as a gift off my Hubby or family I always say I want the same brand. I have stuck with Cacharel's Lou Lou for over 25 years. I still love it after all this time.


When it comes to picking a different bottle of perfume it is hard to choose. Do you go for a bottle which stands out more than the others? One that has been inspired by someone famous, just because you like them? Or keep smelling the testers until they all blend in to one in the same. As I say I end up with the same one as I cannot decide.


Last week Fragrance Direct emailed me about some research about the top selling perfume in Nottingham. They found that Daisy by Marc Jacobs is the most popular fragrance in the City. I must admit I have had my eye on this perfume for a while now, dropping hints at Christmas that my husband failed to pick up on.

If I could have picked any bottle of perfume to review it would have been Daisy. So I was very excited to get the chance to test it out. Once my perfume arrived, I tried it out straight away. My eldest son said, "what perfume you wearing mum? that smells nice"!! So I replied "I do don't I"!?!

Not only is the design amazing, the daisy on the top is adorable, it smell great too. A sweet and refreshing floral smell pops straight to mind. A lovely fragrance that reminds me of warm summer nights out.


How sweet is this bottle!?! It catches my eye, every time I walk by it. It is now proudly placed on my dressing table in my bedroom, spraying a little every day to smell lovely.


About the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette Spray 50ml:
  • Daisy is the first of Marc Jacobs iconic fragrances for women, a fresh and floral fragrance which is youthful and sweet and perfect for summer. 
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy is light and easy to wear and features a cool combination which includes Strawberry, Violet Leaf and Blood Grapefruit top notes, heart notes of Gardenia, Jasmine and Violet and base notes of Musk, Vanilla and White Woods. 
  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette Spray comes in a glass bottle decorated with daisies, a very ornamental perfume which looks and smells fantastic. A must for young women.

It Is Never To Windy To Pose!?!...


After seeing my personal video they made everyone to celebrate 10 years on Facebook, I realised all photo are magical. 

I joined Facebook in 2009. My 2 youngest children were babies and my young (soon to be men) sons were young teenage. 

Every photo tells a story, every story we remember with pride. 

My oldest sons waiting to run a race...
The stony beech at Bognor Regis...
Three youngest children making a pop group...
New trainer...
New haircut...
My youngest son eating ice cream at a race track (looking like a toddler)...
On the rides at Butlins...
Birthday...
Proms...
Posing..

To mention just a few..

Today's photos tell the story of a cold day to windy to pose!! 

A day that no one wanted to go out in but ended up being a really cool day out to shopping with lots of treats...


Me "kids lets go to Nottingham"..

Son " No its to windy!"
Daughter "No way!"

After a hour...

I will buy you a warm sausage roll if your go!?!

Son "Ok then!"
Daughter " I'm waiting at the door!"

After a 30 minute walk to the train station we arrive 10 minutes early for the train.

Come on smile...

Son "No it is to windy!"
Daughter "No! I'm going to pull faces if you take any pictures!"

After taking ages to get out, my son spending a long long time to look for finger skate board in the toy shop, a quick scoot around Primark, we soon realised we had 10 minutes to meet hubby from work. A long way from where we was.

So we ran from one shopping centre to another picking up warm sausage rolls (that got them out in the first place), on the way to meet my husband... we were on time!!

A day we ended up having so much fun...

Also stopping on the way home to pick a few cakes up for the weekend...

So all in all it was a great day, and one not to forget. I

f we had stayed in this day, watching films? it would have been all forgotten about now!!

I Can't Sing... I Can't Dance... But Who Cares I Smell Like Rihanna...


How cold is it?

Seriously how cold and windy is it?

As if the non stop rain was not bad enough!!

Not letting the weather spoil mine and the little two's fun we went out today, a mile walk and a 40 minute train ride into Nottingham.


Hope you all had a nice Valentines day?

Hubby brought me a lovely Rihanna perfume set and a beautiful card. I smelt this perfume at Christmas but wasn't sure if I liked it at the time. When we were on our way home I realised I love it, arr to late then!!

It was a lovely surprise!!

As it was so cold, windy and raining last night we stayed in. I put on my lovely new perfume, onesie and watched Benidorm on Sky plus and we shared a bottle of red wine and lots of cakes!!

What I wore to Nottingham~

Jumper ~ Charity shop
Dress ~ Sainsbury's
Tights ~ Primark
Boots ~ Barratts


Another night in, Onsie on, "take me out" to watch and more cakes!!

We have just discovered Lidl's pick and mix cake!!

Oh my they are soo good and the big savoury pretzels taste amazing too..

Now we have to make plans what to do in the holidays...

What are your plans for the weekend?

Get Busy Living...


One Saturday me and my youngest 2 children had a fun day out shopping in Nottingham.

First we walked a mile to the train station, kicking a few fallen leaves on the way through the parks. Then lots of games and giggles on the train ride.

Exciting looking around all the shops as they are filled with wonderful gifts for Christmas. Planning what they would like off Santa!!

A few treats later, bags full of Christmas decoration and pop for the way home, we meet my husband from work and got a lift home in the car.


I had lots of fun trying to take lots 100's of photos of my feet and lots of selfies with my camera. I may have looked very vain in the streets trying to stand and take a shoot of myself but I did have a good reason,,, honest!!

I was asked by Cheeky shoes if I would like to take part in a fun photo video. Where I take 100's of photos of me wearing the new Cheeky shoes and they make a cool video out of the pictures. I am so excited to see how the video turns out, so watch this space as I can't wait to share...


Outfit~

Body warmer ~ Republic
Jumper ~ Republic
Jeans ~ Abercrombie and Fitch,
Shoes ~ Cheeky shoes
