Then Now Outfit Of The Day: Creative Mondays #Linky

Happy Monday friends. Welcome to another fun filled Creative Mondays Link Up. Good morning lovelies and welcome to this week’s brand new linky party, where you can share all your creative posts with us today. I am so pleased you have stopped by to join us for this week’s Creative Mondays Link Up. What have you been creating this week?

Street Art & Travel :

I love finding a bit of street art wherever I go. Makes taking photos much more fun. I found this cool work Sheffield.

New Favourite Dress:

Here I am wearing my favourite denim dress which I picked up at Sainsbury’s a few weeks ago and some very comfy new yellow sandals I got for half price at Clarks last week. Also my favourite bag of the minute too. My Minnie Mouse bag from Primark.

Summer sales are now on and I had been saving my money for a nice quality pair of sandals. I wondered in Clarks in Nottingham as I was passing last week and came out with 2 great pairs for the price of what I was expecting to pay for one! Result!

Have you had a look around the Summer sales yet? Have you grabbed yourself a bargain?

How Cool Is This Street Art?

Whenever I find some, I like to go home and search who did it. I and found out this street art on Howard Street  in Sheffield is by Rob Lee commissioned by local magazine Now Then for their 10th birthday. How cool!

Today I am sharing a flashback Friday post from August last year. I remember wearing this outfit and being too hot! Now I team it up with cozy tights, boots and a thick Winter coat!! Dreaming Of Summer #WeekendLinkUp.

A Trip To Selfridges: Creative Mondays Link Up:

Guess who’s back!? Back again 🙂 No… (Not Eminem) Meeeee…… Have you missed me!? Ha! I have been enjoying being away from the computer for a little too long but now I am back for good!! It has been a mad busy Christmas with work and family. I loved every minute I spent it with my family.  Can’t believe I had to work over Christmas though.  Not fun!! Ha! Happy to have had a few days off to recover and eat lots of food and drink. Also I need to get back on track after that ✔️. A Trip To Selfridges: Creative Mondays Link Up.

Thanks so much for joining us today for The Wordless or not so Wordless Wednesday Link Up! What photos have you been taking lately? Would you like to share them here with us today?

Banksy Paintings:

Banksy has been all over the news over the last few days after his amazing Girl With Balloon painting self-destructed during an auction last week. Did you see the video? Oh wow, imagine paying all that money and that happening. My heart would have been racing!! I can imagine how shocked people were to see it happening and not know what was going on. I would have loved to have been there!! Banksy Paintings #WordlessWednesdayLinkUp.

Christmas Street And An Outfit Of The Day:

It has been a busy weekend here. We took our 2nd eldest Son back to Uni today and stopping in Ikea for a few things on the way home. A new rug, 2 new settee covers and a table. Guess who is painting the living room up tomorrow!! I can not wait. We are also planning to rip out the carpet and fit a nice laminated floor, wish us luck!? Ha!

#MySundayPhoto: A Selfie Of A Selfie:

Happy Sunday friends. How is your weekend going? All good, I hope. I’ve had a bad headache from a few glasses of wine on Friday night. All weekend too. Not good! When will I ever learn!? Must drink more water! #MySundayPhoto: A Selfie Of A Selfie.

    Love the embroidery of your dress Claire and the pops of yellow and red are on point! There’s so much sales going on right now, I don’t even know where to begin! I also love finding street art.
