Treasure hunting

What I wore......

 Black spotty crop top - vintage * Cream vest top - New Look * Acid skinny jeans - Primark * Pixie boots - George at Asda * Hand bag - had it too long to remember.

I went treasure hunting on Sunday with my mum and brother at the boot fair :)

Bought some lovely things which I will post a photo of tomorrow.
I found a vintage flash gun for my SLR, a vintage camera for only £1, some spotting heels, retro postcards, cherry hair slides, some daisy beads for my 'pandora', a vintage leather strapped watch and a mickey mouse strap for me camera :)

All in all a good days finds.

Here's a peek at a couple of the stalls.......

I really wanted the light fitting, but its just too big

Pretty stall, filled with bunting, jams and hand made goodies :)

 Hope your all enjoying the nice weather, and looking forward to the Long weekend

Black, white & .... red.

White silk sleeveless shirt - charity shop

Locket - Topshop
Brooch - Juicy Couture

Hello all, Just a quick 'what I wore' post, which sadly now has gone back to involving jackets!! 
What happened to the nice weather??

Also I would like to introduce you all to Betty.....my new car :)

Isn't she pretty. I have had her for a few weeks, but haven't had a chance to show her off yet lol.

I did however spend this afternoon polishing her though, hence her shininess, it was well worth the work, even if it did turn me temporarily red.....

Spell it out for me

Well, today was my first day in my new job......it went brilliantly :)

And after a fantastic weekend spent with my best friends, this month has really kicked off to a great start!

Moving back into blog land, I have recently found a liking for spelling.....let me explain.
I really rather like decorative pieces that spell out a lovely word, which may have just been the worse description ever so take alook at the photos I took in Cambridge. 'BAKE' is china and 'HOME' is fabric.

 Pretty little things, so I may attempt to make one somehow, all I need is to think of a word to use....?

Oh, one more photo for you, this did make me giggle.....

....that's right, socks that say I heart Primark.....classic giggle stuff.

I have unknowingly developed a new found love for Boots make up range, 17.

I say unknowingly because, it just seems that when I have gone out to buy a replacment of something, I end up with 17 in my make up bag.

My most recent venture being thier photo flawless mascara, that has a tint of pearlescent colour, to match to your eye colour, mine is blue, and this gives your eyes a bit of sparkle.

These are the bits I have in my make up bag at the moment.

Clockwise from top left. Extra fair concealer, even tone correction cream, photo flawless lashes, soft eye liner pen! and pink grapefruit nail polish.
Anyone else found a love for this make up?

New beginnings

Hello all, sorry for not blogging lately, but I have been run off my feet with work this last few weeks.

Anyway, I finally have a new car, she is a red Mazda mx3 and is called Betty and also I will be starting a new job in a weeks time, which means great news for my blog, as I no long have to wear a hidious uniform and can start doing 'what I wore' again .... yay! I do have to wear smart black, but I take this as a challenge :)

Also I just wanted to show off my new one sleeve dress. It took me a little while to get used to, but I do rather love it now.

Dress - Apricot at NewLook
Belt and flower - Matalan


Happy Mother's Day to my Vintage Mum :) x x x
