Bring On The Cold!


A few weeks ago I received an email to tell me Blacks & Millets are working alongside brands such as The North Face and Berghaus on their new season jackets. Their range include the stylish Thermoball & Stormcloud ranges. Some great brands and lovely warm coats then. Excellent.


They kindly asked me if I would like to pick one of their coats and take part in their new campaign; Bring on the cold!

Sparkly Dresses For The Party Season..


Morning lovelies..

Are you looking for a pretty sparkly dress for the party season? Just recently Quiz Clothing released a new line of Going Out Dresses for AW16, and kindly asked me if I would like to take a look, with a view to me picking out my favourite party dress to review.


Have you ever shopped here before?  We have a Quiz Clothing shop in our town and I am a big fan. I have always loved their window displays as everything always looks beautiful. I always thought though that the shop was more for the younger generation and might be overpriced. When you venture inside I realised there is something for all ages and the prices are no where near what you would imagine them to be. You can pick up some really nice items for day or evening wear.

What I Wore : 20th Wedding Anniversary...


Happy Thursday lovelies...

How is your week going? 

It has been a mad busy week here, shopping for back to school things. Just my daughters school shoes and bag left to buy, then we are finished!

On Tuesday evening me and my husband went out for a meal to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. It was a beautiful evening. The sun was shining brightly, we could not have timed it better for a nice walk out.  Just the two of us was so lovely. A rare date night out. I also got to wear my lovely new dress that I had been sent to review.


Change your mind about something?

Last week House Of Fraser got in touch with me to see if I wanted to review one of 3 pretty dresses. This was the only one in a size 10, so I choose this one.

Oasis Chelsea Floral Skater Dress : House Of Fraser ..


Happy Thursday! Hope your having a good week so far? The weekend is almost here...

I am looking forward to this weekend as my Husband has promised to take me out for a date night!! We might as well make use of my older two Sons free babysitting, before they go back to Uni. Plus it will be an excuse to dress up.


Everyone enjoys a good night out. My two eldest are full of stories of nights out, proms, parties and more parties.!!

We never had anything like a Prom when I was at school!! A roller disco or teacher supervised school dance was about it!!

The only time I remember a reference to Proms was in movies such as Grease. Rather like trick or treating for Halloween it is a American influenced modern phenomenon. That is no bad thing as far as we are concerned as my older Boys both have fond memories of their school prom nights. My younger two love Trick or Treating.!

How Do You Handle A Compliment? Creative Mondays Blog Hop...


Happy Monday everyone. Hope you've had a lovely weekend?

Creative Mondays is my favourite blog hop of the week as I get to see all your amazing creative ideas. Link up, have fun reading other posts on the hop and please be kind enough to link back to the hop in your post.


In a recent survey commissioned by George at Asda, they found out that 41% of women feel unsatisfied with their body shape, and only 13% of women find compliments about their body shape to be believable. 

I think we can all find something we don't like about our bodies, especially as we get older. I could easily write a list of things I would like to change. If somebody does pays me a compliment though, I would be smiling all day and believe them ;)

Rain Rain Go Away!! Real Mums Real Style..


Really fed up of the rain now.

Aren't you!?


I do like the rain and I do like going out with Mollie on 2 hour walks in the rain. I don't like the fact I have no dry trainers left to wear!!

I keep wearing a nice dry pair every time I go out. Now they are all soaking wet through. All under the kitchen radiator waiting to dry but its too warm to put the heat on!!

I brought this dress a few weeks ago for my holiday. When I seen it in the shop I loved it straight away. It screamed buy me! When I got it home and tried it on, I hated it! Far to wide, too baggy around the top.  So it was take it back to the shops and not have a new dress for my holidays or pack it in the case..

Polka Dots, Rain, Sunglasses And Holidays...


When you go on holiday and pack only summer clothes, you have to wear them even in the pouring rain.


Thankfully I remembered to take some jeans with me!!
