A week has passed since my last blog update, but I’ve had a busy week! Last weekend I stayed in London, then my team at work went on a two night trip to the Peak District on Tuesday, and then I was in London again on Friday night, so I’ve barely been home recently!  But I woke up this morning, it’s now March and the sun is shining which has got me really excited that winter is finally over and Spring is here! Which means it’s almost summer, which is even more exciting! I thought I’d put together a little…

I haven’t actually asked for anything specific this Christmas, but I think I may treat myself to some goodies in the Boxing Day sales. When I do these wishlists I always sing in my head ‘if I was a rich girl, lalalala’ but to be honest they’re not the most extravagant items!

I’ve still not found a nice dogtooth dress to wear for work, but I have discovered a new love for a-line shaped skirts. I…

Although I will be at work on my actual birthday, I have lots of fun plans on the weekends with family and friends, and I’m quite excited!  Since payday has just come and gone I’ve spent so much time browsing online as there’s quite a few good sales on at the moment. I’m trying not to spend money though as I’m hoping once Liam finishes his Army training in September we can go…

Today has been such a lovely day (weatherwise anyway!) it’s got me in the mood for summer suddenly! I can’t wait for all these Bank Holidays coming up, I just want to chill out and enjoy the nice sunshine! It’s probably not quite Pimms and picnic weather just yet, but a few pretty things have caught my eye for spring time.  Most of them are floral (obviously) and I literally am dying for everything on this wishlist, especially the amazing floral bra set from Matalan (which I’m about to purchase any second now!). Also how perfect would that cupcake cushion…
