The look of the Irish!

Me and some girlfriends (the same ones I travelled to Stoke with) flew over to Dublin for the day/night on the weekend!

Even though I wasn't up to my best I had a fantastic time and maybe it was just what I needed to spend time with good friends and see a great show with our sort of friend again this time starring in We Will Rock You.

This is what I wore to travel in on the plane and to have a look around Dublin in the day. The cardie is another of my acquisitions from the Xmas sales.
What I wore:
Skirt: New Look.
Stripey Top: Primark.
Bandeau: Free.
Cardie: Westgate.
Tights: Primark.
Boots: Gifted.
Bangles: Xmas prezzie.
What I wore Sunday:
Jeans: New York Laundry.
Top: Primark.
Cardie: Westgate.
Boots: Gifted.
Pod chair: At hotel :P

Here is us girlie's in a traditional Irish pub - they had a great band on and we stayed there all night (well till 2ish!!) As you can see I didn't get an outfit post and this is not my most flattering pic but just wanted to show what I was wearing!

Dress: Matalan.

I may not be around now for a few days as I go to have my surgery on Friday - something I am dreading .. but hopefully in my recovery time I will be able to check other peoples blogs :D I will let you know how I get on in a few days!

Basic pluggery

No outfit post today just some basic plugging, I never told you the website for my sisters chateau in France so here it is:

Enjoy x

Cruel Intentions ...

Yesterdays outfit reminded me of what Sarah Michelle Geller wore in the film Cruel Intentions - It wasn't really meant to be a nod towards that of a catholic schoolgirl but somehow turned out that way - and once I'd started the whole costume ball rolling I added the cross necklace just for fun :)
This was the skirt I picked up in the Xmas sales :D I just love the colours!

The necklace from CI!

Wore this outfit to go the Hospital to see my new consultant and for some tests - Didn't really get the news I was hoping for and it turns out I have to go in for Surgery next week - yup that was quite a bomb to drop!
I'm REALLY not looking forward to it .. am worried about the op itself, how I'll be feeling afterwards, the risks involved, if I'll have hideous scars after and also the results! It's going to be keyhole exploratory surgery so there may actually be no outcome - which just seems like a whole lot of pain for nothing - but on the other hand it could help .. I just have to hope and pray! (At times like these I wish I had a faith or a stronger one at least :( )

Took the day off work today as I was feeling exhausted and poorly and also just couldn't face having to pretend I was okay when actually all I wanted to do was cry!!

Anyway we'll just have to see what happens - no1 can ever know what the future holds!

What I wore today:
Skirt: Jane Norman.
Top: Primark.
Cardie: New Look.
Tights: Primark.
Boots: Gifted.
Necklace: Gifted: Avon.

I'm so not digging what I wore to work on Tues, it made me look hippy (and not the peace and love kind!) It was so much cuter when conceived in my head! Ah well - we live and learn my friends live and learn!

Also I think Ive put on weight - even though my scales beg to differ - my hips and lower stomach look wider, so I must of spread out - when I look at pics of my summer pre wedding outfits I look noticeably smaller - So theres a warning to all you single bloggers out there, don't do it .. don't get married it makes you fat!! :)

What i wore:
Skirt: New Look.
Black Top: Primark.
Cardie: New Look.
Tights: Primark.

France Part 2 ....

Me and the hubster up a mountain in the Pyrenees!

This is the outfit I wore on Sunday, we had a lazy morning of playing with the boys and then a fabulous lunch .. before heading to the ski slopes - now I cannot for the life of me ski .. so we went sledging with the 5 and 2 yr old - we had SUCH a fun time (I don't know who enjoyed it more hehe) We then built an igloo and a table out of snow and had a mini picnic up the mountain - Le Mourtiss.

After that we played some more before the children's bedtime then had yet another amazing meal cooked by Heather (Sis in Law) I'll not be fitting in my clothes at this rate ;p
