What I Wore : Wollaton Hall Cross Country...

On Saturday we had a day out at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham. My youngest 2 were running cross country. 

It is such a lovely place here,  I just wish the sun had been out.

 Instead it  was a really cold and miserable day so I wrapped up warm as I had a fever earlier in the week. 

Apparently there is a lot of deers that wonder around in the field behind me but we did not get to see any today, just one in the far distance. 

I am looking forward to taking the children and Mollie a walk in the summer to go and find some.

What I Wore : Meadowhall :Real Mums Real Style..

A few weeks ago we went shopping with the children to Meadowhall in Sheffield. I love to go shopping here. The trouble is when you get to Meadowhall;  you wish you had lots of money as you see plenty of thing you want to buy. 

Also they have the most amazing places to eat so you are always hungry when you get inside with all the lovely smells round.

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year...


Love everything about this time of year. The trees, lights, songs, food, adverts everything. Advent, 12 days of Christmas and all the traditional Christmas stories..

Not forgetting to mention Santa, Rudolph and the snowmen. Also anything that sparkles and brightens up the dark cold evenings.

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!

A Catch Up With My Boys..

Polka dots and Converse 2 of my favourite things to wear!!

A few weeks ago when it was the half term school holidays, me the hubby and 2 youngest kids had a lovely day out visiting our eldest 2 sons who are both at Uni, for a catch up! We had not seen them both since September but it felt like a lot longer than that.

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: Creative Mondays Blog Hop...

Happy Creative Monday.

It is my children's last day off school today; after the school holidays.

 We are going to make the most of it!!

My daughter is off to big school, how and when did the years go by so quickly!?

She is OK with going but I am a bag of nerves!! I hope she enjoys it.

Life is better in the garden?

Ha, not mine. I still never got to planting any flowers after all of mine failing to grow last year.

Plans for September to get the garden dug ready for next year..

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.

Happy Creative Mondays everyone!!

Hope the Summer Holidays is going well!? Busy here, not much time to blog!! All good fun :)

A few weeks ago Brantano kindly asked me if I would like to pick out a pair of  their ladies sandals or shoes to review.

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.!
