Contest no 1

So this is my entry into a contest set over at Fashion for nerds
It was based around planning an outfit to match the interior of that room so I picked out the olive from the picture, black from the floor, the white from the cupboard and the pink from the table .. also just spotted is a purple rug, so I added a purple scarf.

It was so much fun putting together an outfit like this - I hope to do more in the future!

What I wore today:
Skirt: George @ Asda.
Cami vest: New Look.
Cardigan: New Look.
Scarf worn as belt: Next.
Hair extensions: Balmian.

I also wore my hair extensions today to try them out for the wedding, now I've had my hair dyed the right colour to wear them, it was v exciting to see how I looked with long hair .. I liked it :)

And now a warning for those who don't like feet ... look away now ..

I want to show you my newly painted tootsies, 3 different nail varnishes were mixed to make this lovely blue colour - love it!!

Cluedo resumes 2morrow - really wanted to enter this contest :D Oh and also I found a style guide in a magazine that I'm going to try and make an outfit a day from after I finish cluedo - who knew blogging could be so fun :)

Rev Green (is annoyed)

Am gutted and annoyed .. was meant to be going out to a corporate do at the football tonight - and to see cup final - and it's been called off as they have a supposed waterlogged pitch - it hasn't rained that much here!
As I didn't have the most amount of time this morn I only took a couple of shots as I thought I would have this evening's outfit to add on later too, but now I don't!! I was going to wear this top with a pencil skirt and heels .. and some fab jewellery!! Now I don't have any reason to wear it .. and we might not even get re-arranged - so there goes the nice free meal and drinks!

Am grrrrr arrrg-ing as we speak!!!!


What I wore today:
Trousers: Florence+Fred @ Tesco.
Shirt: Next.
Heels: Gifted.

What I wore today:
Skirt: Dorothy Perkins.
Red Top: River Island.
Cardie: New Look.
Belt: Dorothy Perkins.

That someone was planning a challenge of wearing the colours of the cluedo characters each day for a week - now I don't get dressed (well to go out anyway) everyday as I don't work everyday so mine will be more spread out but I thought I'd have a go.....

Anyone fancy joining me .. if you do send me a comment and a link to your page and then I can follow your efforts to!!

Have fun .....

Pretty in pink??

Fly me to the moon ...

This outfit once on reminded me of an air hostess - because of the scarf, Originally I was going to wear it without, but my horoscope said to wear red, so I thought I'd add it for a pop of colour .. I really liked it when I had it on anyway - as did my other half!! :)

So fly me to the moon became the title!!

Today I had a day off so I spent the day relaxing and the weather was gorgeous so I sat in the garden to to have my lunch and read a magazine!! LOVELY!

Also first blog pics I've been able to take outside - and to show the new garden :D (Not 100% finished yet though!! And are awaiting a shed.)

Tonight we went to pick the wedding breakfast menu (YUM) - was nice to be able to sort another thing out - it's getting so close now :D Can't wait to have some of the food .. am really looking forward to it, hope the weather holds up as it's a lovely location!! :D

Ok so What I wore today:
Dress: Cherokee @ Tesco.
Cardigan: Matalan.
Scarf: My mum's.
Sandals: New Look.

I didn't wear any jewellery (apart from rings) today as I didn't think the outfit needed it!

Mint choc chip.

So this is what I wore for work the other day - I call it Mint Choc Chip as it reminds me of ice-cream :)

haven't been well again all weekend - hence I am only just adding this

to get a few hours last night though I think - but I have so much stuff
I want to do and don't feel I am capable of doing it at the mo :(

Had a bit of bad news at the weekend too - my cousin (who I thought of as more of an auntie)
died, she has been poorly a long time - but an inspiration in a way
that she always seemed positive - I wish I could feel more like that -
but I guess you never know how a person is feeling behind closed doors!

What I wore:
Skirt: Pilot
Mint v neck: New Look
Brown overlay: Matalan
Tights: Primark
