...23 and no idea...



It was my birthday yesterday. Am now the grand old age of 23. Where has life gone. The year has passed so quickly. This time last year I was holding my dinner party. Time really does fly. I just wanted to post a quickie of few things I got. Some cards. From the boyf' i got some shoes, Mad Men (series4) and this amazing polariod book. My dad has got me a kindle and my mum is getting some vouchers. Very low key which is nice. No fussing. I am going out with friends for lunch tomorrow, which am really looknig forward too. Some of my girl-friends I haven't seen in such a long time. Will be nice to catch up. Not much has happened this week. Work and the such like. Woke up this morning with a terrible cold. Felt really bunged and coughy. Hoping it will pass quickly. Colds are the worst.




Have a lovely weekend everyone!

...A Little Indulgence...


I thought I would give this ago, as I've seen these boxes floating around for sometime in the blogging world. And plus what girl doesn't love a few beauty products. Yesterday my first ever Glossybox arrived. Oh, it was so wonderful. The baby pink box, all wrapped up deliciously.



My pictures may not do it justice so I do apologise for the quality. I am really looking forward to using the highbrow kit. Looks really fancy. I'm more excited to use te free creams. I love balms and hand creams. Working with children, you are constantly washing your hands nad they can get really dry. So, I will defo be giving the pot I got a go. This is by no means going to turn into a beauty blog. It is let alone a fashion blog but I will attempt to let you know how I get on with these products.



Been a long day today and am currently waiting for the beau to return home from work with a delicious Papa Johns Pizza. This company does the best pizzas ever. So tasty. Yum. Will be a nice way to unwind from a long day at work. Best of all I have to only be in work for the afternoon tomorrow, so am looking forward to a lay in. Bliss...

...Nelly the Elephant Packed Her Bags...


Off I went again today, back down to Worthing. Doing this course in London, and the constant travelling is beginning to wear thin. Plus without my car I cannot just bung things in my bag as it means I have to lug it all on the train. Fingers crossed this coming week all that will be sorted.


I took instagram outfit pics today. Something bit different. I also really like the filters you can overlay on top of your image. I should learn how to use photoshop really, but can never find the time. After work I'm always tired and just want to chillout.

Life thus far. General musings round town. Not much of interest but I do love playing around with the instagram and hipstamatic apps on my phone...

...H&M A/W...



I got my latest H&M catelog through in the post and am loving their A/W collection. Gorgeous knitwears, perfect winter dress. Have already made a note of a few items I want. Some knee high boots, a few dresses and cardys here.



But alas this will not be the case. I have put myself on a strict budget and that means a spending ban has been put into place up until the end of November. Mainly because I will need to start my xmas shopping then and plus I am saving up to move out. Therefore, I am going to try and re-work my already bulging wardrobe and see what new outfits I can put together.  I'm hoping that this will give my clothes a new lease of life.

So from tomorrow this new me will begin, as it's my friends bday night. I would usually think of getting a new outfit but no this time I'm gonna put somehting together I already have. Those pieces you put away for 'special' occassions and then never get round to wearing them. I have, over the past few weekends when visiting home, been going through my clothes and desizing it. Giving tp charity what I seriously haven't worn in a very long time, and probably never plan to wear in the future. It is actually very refreshing. An autumn clean out...

...Date Night...


As a couple James and myself don't really go on dates anymore. Of course we go out for dinner now and  then, or to the cinema. Sometimes day trips out, but we never pruposefully make the effort to get dressed up and have a 'date night'. So, in order to rectify this we decided, well he chose to, go out all dressed up, and have a classy night out. He chose this lively little Indian restuarant just down the road. We had wine and some really tasty food. Of course he took some pics of my outfit. Not sure if it works with the waistcoat. Plus I ended up wearing my hair down in the end. I also ended up wearing these burgundy boots too. What do you think?


Doing this outfit posts is really helping me to get an idea of what works well for me. It allows me to see what is a 'hit' and what is a defo 'miss'. All feed back is welcome. Sometimes you need an outsiders perpesctive on things...

...What I Wore...


So, yesterday was a bit mixed up. Firstly the weather could not make up its mind. Humid, bit of rain then sunny, then cloudy. Does not g odown well trying to plan your days outfit. Secondly, was caleld into work and then left early. One of the kids went home early which meant I could leave. That was nice though 'cos I went and did some window shopping. Saw lots of lovely nice pieces that I would like for Autumn/Winter.  The colours are all so warm and inviting. Soft tones and fabrics. I love wrapping in cardys and jumpers. Thick tights.

Below are some more pics of what I wore. James really got into taking these pictures. Had to snatch the camera off him. Ha!

...What I Wore...


Yesterday I had a work thing. A bbq and fun more like. It was a parent/children and careres afternoon in the local park. I couldn't go last year but was so happy to be able to make it to this one. Lots of yummy food, drinking and of course playing with the children. Being able to chat to the parents in a more relaxed environment is always good. am really loving my new found career...so moving onto clothes. this is what i wore. again something simple and not too fussy...sorry about three of the pics. I took, well James did, after I got back. He's getting I think. Maybe a few more and he'll be a right old pro...enjoy...

...Turning 18...


A while back I posted about my cousin's 18th, well what I wore at least. Here are a few out of the many pictures that were taken that night. I never laugh as much with my friends as I do my family. Our humour is the same and all being together is just wonderful. I'm sure all family's are like this. Well enjoy and let me know what you think...
