P.S Expect normal posting/blogging to resume after Monday when I hand the last piece of University work in…for life! Goodbye education!


First of all, apologies for not doing this yesterday, I got my dates completely mixed up and have been under so much stress with uni. Thank you all for all your entires and promotion, we now have over 50 followers which is a massive achievement for me! I understand I’ve lacked in blogging (again) lately but after next week I have finished education forever! So this blog will be my highest priority once all that is out of the way. Anyway, thank you again, I’ll announce the winner below using some screen shots of the process (I’m sure you all know how it works!)

Well done Jessica for being the winner of my first ever giveaway! I will be in contact soon! And thank you again to everyone who entered and promoted, I’ve had an overwhelming response of entries and I hope you all like my writing so much that you stay followers! I will be announcing another giveaway in the near future!


I’ve decided to do another Wednesday Wishlist special this week because H&M currently have some great discount codes available to use at the moment!

By entering the code 1304 at check out you can receive £5.00 discount, and by entering the code 9217 you can receive £10.00 discount – and you can use them together to get £15.00 off! I’m not sure how long the code is valid is for so use it while you can!

Flared Jersey top, £7.99
I really like this top as its so light and casual that it can be worn for anything whether it be working out, going out or lazing around. This top looks lovely in the photo with just some shorts and bangles, but it would really look great with anything. High waisted jeans would look really nice.
Figure-fit bodice dress, £19.99
This dress is so cute, I just love the fitted shape of it, especially the way it flares out at the bottom. It looks like a really casual day time prom dress. I think its the perfect dress to wear for a summer wedding with high wedges and lots of girly accessories. A brown statement belt would look really good with this outfit too.
Straight-style jacket, £7.49
I love this so much! I don’t have many jackets but I really like this one – in fact the whole outfit goes together so well. I really love the contrast of the bright coloured shorts with the blazer – I would never have thought to pair it with such a bright colour myself. High bouffant hair and heels would push this look to a more glam level as the jacket has a very smart feel. Try adding a few funky buttons or brooches to the jacket for a much more original look.
Classic denim jacket, £19.99
Another trend I have been wary of for a while (I have nightmares about my denim fashion mishaps as a teen!), denim jackets are a lot more daunting then they seem. With so many different colours and types, it’s hard to find what is best for you without looking silly! I really love this jacket though, its not your typical blue denim but is still very stylish. I think this would look lovely with most things, especially a long flowing summer dress!
Flared lace top, £7.99
This top (also available in black and beige) is so stylish right now, especially in this bright, block pink colour. This is a top that is ideal for summer but would also look good worn on a night out. Lace is so on trend at the moment, purchasing this top in beige would give you a really nice vintage look! Bright lips would suit this look.

Venues. Bain of my life.

We have spent the last few weeks looking for a reception venue, but where do you start?! There are so many people to please, with the food, drink, location, size etc etc. Now I know why bride’s get so stressed! And I’m not even close to the wedding!
I look to the three fountains of knowledge in my life: the wedding bible which says to create a budget and stick to it. My mother who says that to pay anything over £5,000 (the cost of hers 20 years ago!) for a wedding is an absolute crime. My vicar who says to not worry about the cost as it is the act that is important. So out of all of these pieces of advice, which do we listen to?
The answer to that, is none.
Armed with the brochures from the wedding fayres, and a long list of contact details compiled over an evening of Chinese and a (few) bottle(s) of wine, we spent an afternoon ringing venues for prices and information, and consequently, crossing them off the list one-by-one.
Our Criteria:
  1. Close to the church
  2. Car parking and accommodation close by
  3. Cheap
  4. Pretty
  5. Accessible

This seems like an impossible task.
I gave up.
Rob however, being the trooper that he is, kept searching and we, or should I say he, eventually found a little village hall at the bottom of the Wrekin. Seems to tick all of the boxes, so good so far! We weren’t really envisioning a village hall as the venue, but I’m open to suggestions, and the cheaper the wedding, the better the honeymoon!
Check back next time to see what we thought of the venue!

Week of 1st – 8th May 2011

Funky Hands!
Just used nail stickers for the first time and love them!

Mmm hotdogs! 
We’re obsessed with hot dogs in our family, me, my brother and my sister regularly hold hot dog dinner parties/nights so I was in heaven when I spotted this in ASDA! 

Er, where have all my clothes gone?
This is what greeted me when I returned back up North – and this was AFTER I unpacked! Clearly I’ve got a pile of washing/ironing to do and I best get on with it!

Yes I should be doing my dissertation but I promise you this is research! Half my money goes on at least 4 different magazines a month!

My life
This is how I’ll be spending the rest of my week – at this messy desk, on this laptop doing my dissertation. *sigh*
