What I Wore : Snow Days...

Warning : No make up selfies!!!


How quickly a week and half changes! First no snow, then deep snow, then no snow again.

Wrapped up warm here with a t-shirt, jumper, padded waistcoat, jacket, hat, scarf, jegging and wellies on really did keep me warm and toasty. Just a shame my feet when numb where to deep snow fell into my Wellington boots! Walking up to the park in the snow to play with the youngest 2 children is not the stylist place to go but my bright red scarf made it a nice and cheerful outfit. The sale shopping was put on hold when the unexpected snow arrive...

What I Wore :

Coat : c/o Millets
Padded waistcoat : Republic
Jumper : c/o Bonmarche
Scarf :Primark
Jeggings : Lidl
Wellies : Sportsworld
Hat : Christmas present : New Look

Christmas Jumpers From Bonmarche Review...

A few weeks ago I was kindly asked by Bonmarche if I would like to review some clothing from their website. The first thought that sprang to mind, was how my Grandma loved this shop. When she was alive we used to go on a regular shopping trips. We could never pass Bonmarche without calling in, so she could pick out something new to wear.  


When I read the email I wondered if they would sell anything for my age group? Thinking back to when my Grandma shopped here, she would often ask me if I would like anything, but at the time there was never really anything I liked.

Taking a look at their website before I decided to do the review and these sweet Christmas jumpers were the first things I noticed. Then I had a look through all their other clothing. Wow what a transformation from what I remember there were plenty of things I liked and would love to wear!  As I say the jumpers caught my attention straight away, but I also had my eye on some David Emanuel beautiful designed party dresses too. (Just in case Santa is reading!)


The first item I wore is this fun penguin jumper, so adorable!?! Designed wearing his ear muffs and scarf on. This jumper is so cosy, warm and so much fun to wear. I can guess it will go with loads of things in my wardrobe.

About the jumper
  • Fun and exciting just in time for Christmas are our launch of Novelty jumpers. 
  • Indulge in a bit of festive cheer to entertain the whole family. 
  • These make great cosy warm presents for a touch of fun
  • . Designed with a drop shoulder fit to be flattering to all.
  • Length: 63cm
  • Product Care: Machine Washable
  • Material: 98% Acrylic 2% Polyester
  • Sizes S,M,L,XL,XS

The next day I wore this one. Aww this reindeer jumper is just so cute. I'm thinking this will look great with everything too especially grey joggers!?! and pencil skirts.

My thoughts

I just love these jumpers. So sweet, warm cosy and unbelievably adorable. I picked size small as I am a size 10 and this size fits perfect. I am so glad Bonmarche got in touch with me as I would have usually walked straight by their stores. As I thought they were not my age group and style of clothes. Not any more I am popping down to my local store this week to go and check out their in-store party range.


Which one do you like best?

My Perfect Christmas Dinner with Family Outfit...


A few weeks ago Marisota asked me if I would like to style some clothes for the perfect event this Christmas. I love a nights out, shopping trips and visiting family and the best day of the year for me is Christmas day. I love to spend this day with all my beautiful family. Our eldest son home from university, the children all home together. Perfect. My favourite day of the whole year.


My Perfect Christmas Day would go something like this...

All kids awake, all deny they woke up first, all deny they woke anyone else up. Ok then all up check Santa's sherry drunk carrot for reindeer eaten. Living room door open squeals, shrieks, minutes of shaking Santa has been!!All corners of room taken up by one of our children's presents. Quick breakfast washed down with tin of chocolates and mince pie. (not the whole tin).

Phone up family, wish them a Happy Christmas. Hope they had a lie in, and have had a nice morning.

Quick check all presents have been opened. Me and daughter get dressed up, nice dress the more sparkles the better. Glittery shoes or this year sandals on and a little bit of ruby red lipstick. Remember Turkey is not in oven, quickly dash to start it off.

A glass of wine for the cook when making dinner, perfect start to the day. Big dinner with all the trimming, eek.. Brussels sprouts all-round!! A few hours later it is time to eat again, grandma and granddad is coming for tea...
