Peach Blossom Spring Dress : Joe Browns Dress Review...

When we were on holiday a few weeks ago I received a email from the lovely people at Joe Browns. They asked me if I would like to style one of their beautiful and unique items of clothing from their new Autumn/ Winter range. Yes please, I love their collections ..I picked this fabulous vintage floral style Peach blossom peach spring dress. The new in range of Shangri-La and Sovereignty are beautiful and inspiring collection. 


Where does the time go!?!  I can not believe we celebrated our 18 year wedding Anniversary last week. Eek 18 years have just flown by. As we had just come off our holidays we decided to leave it till last weekend to have a night to ourselves and go on a date night <3...


Luckily for me, my son took delivery of my beautiful dress when we were away. So on our date night I went out in style...

Here is my Autumn/Winter wish list in how I would style this dress up with other items from Joe Brown in cooler weather~


Brown  leggings | Peach Blossom Springs Dress | Brown leather riding boots | Mustard chunky knit cardigan | Tan X-body bag...

I am always looking for style tips too..

How would you wear this dress in cooler months to come?

I'm a True Believer...

Oh my the weather is so unsettled at the minute. 

First its lovely, then its torrential rain, now its just being so dull and overcast. 

Come on summer!! 

Show an appearance!!


We did get a lovely day last week and this is what I wore on the school run. 

Having to walk a 3 miles round trip (morning and afternoon) I do like to have comfy shoes on. 

These Nike trainer boots my husband brought me a few weeks back are perfect for the job.


In other news ~ 

What happens when it is a nice day and one of your favourite feel good songs starts playing on you CD player? 

 Sing at the top of your voice, of course!?!

Check first to see if the windows are closed! 

FAILED...

 Make sure their is no window clearer going up the ladder to clean next doors windows!!

Whoops FAILED again!

Think he was and looking around wondering where that horrible noise was coming!?!

Oh well, we get more embarrassing as we get older, don't we?

Or is it just me?

Might as well embrace it ;)


What I wore~

Top ~ Primark
Skirt ~ Pinched off my mum ( always great when your mum buys something new and it is to small!!:))
Trainer/boots ~ Nike

Now I leave you with the song I was singing to. 

Turn the volume up, open the window and sing to the next door neighbours window cleaner!?!

Share-In- Style : Red


Wow apart from the last 2 days the weather has been gorgeous. We have been very spoilt. The children have been none stop on the trampoline and enjoying the warm weather. Now with plans to get the garden straight and lawn mowed this weekend it has been raining, typical!!


I love this maxi dress.

 I picked it up in the January sales from Bhs and have been patiently waiting for the summer to wear it.

It goes perfectly with this lovely red beaded scarf necklace . 

I teamed it up with cute flat ballet shoes to go out on a lovely shopping trip with all the children.

Vintage Style With A Modern Twist...


Good morning everyone :)

I am up with the birds tweeting this morning and ready to go!!

You know when you have so much to do, and do not know where to start? well today is that day!!


I wore this outfit on a rainy day at the weekend.

We had a few hours spare so went to Medowhall shopping centre in Sheffield.

You know when you don't have money and see lots of things you want to buy? then when you have birthday money, burning a hole in your pocket but can not spend it?

Well that is what kind of day I had.

And to top things off I tried to buy a few pretty silver rings from a well known jewellery shop the day after. Another location but the staff was to busy chatting with friends to serve me, even though I had money in my hand!! So I had to walk out empty handed.

So I still have my birthday money to spend.

Now torn new rings ot new shoes?


I wore this dress on Saturday, as my husband mention it in a conversation.

He spotted a picture on Facebook and said-

"I've not seen you wear this dress in a while"

"You look lovely in this"

So off I toddled upstairs and went to pop it one ..


Outfit~

Scarf ~ Primark {new love this, can you see the little pink flamingos?}
Vintage style dress ~ c/o Sainsburys {about a year and half ago}
Shoes ~ Converse


Remember me saying I have so much to do today want to get done.

Well here goes~

Get children up, feed, lunch boxes done, to school.
Paint the downstairs toilet.
Gloss the coat rack.
Gloss the shoe rack.
Paint ceiling.
Paint the hallway.
Gloss the hallway.

Have a look for something to spend my birthday money on.
Catch up with blog comments.

Having to boil the kettle every time we want some hot water.

As the boiler man is still so called mending my boiler, charging me lots of money 4 weeks after I phoned him.

So hopeful he will arrive with a part he has been waiting 2 weeks for today too!?!

I can but hope..


Now to pop my old clothes on and start on the decorating...

Think I will pass on posting photos of these though, haha...

Have a good day :)

My Birthday Over For Another Year...


Wow this weekend has just flown by!!

Yesterday I turned another year older!

Had too much good food and was spoilt to bits with a lovely afternoon shopping in Meadowhall.

Always a good idea to wear flat shoes when we go on a shopping trip with the kids though ...

Shame my fun day turned to a tunnel vision migraine at the end so I had to save my box of Kripy Kreme doughnuts till today..

I brought some lovely clothes (will share later in the week) and now have enough money to buy some fabulous shoes.

Only enough for 1 decent pair though, so should I go with a heeled pair of Irregular Choice or a cool pair of trainers, not ones to run in, cool ones to wear with jeans?

That is the question?

Or wait till the summer sales and buy both?


Outfit~

Dress ~ Primark (few years ago)
Shoes ~ c/o Cheeky Shoes (original ones)

Off to enjoy the sunshine now and do a spot of gardening .. How quickly has the grass grown!?!

Butterflies on Primrose Hill...






What I Wore~

Dress/top ~ Matalan
Jeans ~  Abercrombie and Fitch
Shoes ~ Longsdale

Whoo I am in love with a park!!

All the times we have visited London and I had never been to Primrose Hill before. When we went to down to stay for a few nights for my marathon, we stopped by. My husband had a list of places we needed to visit, this was on top of his list.

The views over London were stunning, breathtaking and I can not wait to visit again!!

This one is on top of my places you have to visit when going to London now. Have you been before? We even went to London zoo a few times last year, and missed it.

How could we? it is only just across the road!!

Today I am so tired, I have done so much but also so happy. My husbands day off so we went out for the day to Bakewell. A rare evening out at the pub too.

 I have found out today I am on the Brit mums short-list for the style bloggers!! So exciting and I so needed to share...

Thanks so much to everyone who voted and I just need to ask one more little favour?

Could you please vote again to get me down to the last round???
