March Scavenger Hunt

This month I decided to take part in the MARCH SCAVENGER HUNT on Postcards from the P.P's blog!

I have seen a few people do it before and thought I'd have a crack myself - I took most of these on my phone when I saw them (as I don't often carry my camera around with me on a day to day basis)

So here goes:

Theatre: This is an old theatre which is now a cinema.

Square and city: Cheated on this one a little ;P



Kitchen: In a DIY shop showroom!

Half a face:

Fashion: My tootsies ;P



However I didn't get a picture for Fancy or of a street sign - I really wanted to take one of a local street called "Rock n Roll Alley" I even took my daughter on a walk past it purposely to take a picture but there were lots of people and traffic and I chickened out!!!

I wonder what April's hunt will bring :D

Paddy's and Mama's Day!

This is what I wore on Sunday for Mothers Day (My first one with my gorgeous baby girl :D)

She bought me a bracelet (I will get a pic), some cupcakes, a mug saying "I love my mummy", some chocs and a lovely card - but do you know the best present - is EVERY moment I spend with her!!!!! I love her so much!

We invited the in laws around and had a buffet style lunch and then a walk in the lovely sunshine :D

What I Wore:
Dress: Primark.
Tights: Gifted, Orig: Evie @ Peacocks.

The day before was St Patricks Day so I had to indulge in a bit of green so I did, to be sure, to be sure ;P

I do find it weird however that we (as English) know when, and celebrate St Patricks Day and yet I would say the majority (me included) don't know when our patron St Day is (St George!!).

Do we all secretly crave to be Oirish? Or do we just enjoy a good Craic!! :D

We went to the opening of an envelope - oops no, sorry - but I prob would LOL - No we went to the opening of a local sweet shop that my hubby has done some business with!

And then had a potter round some shops etc!

Please do ignore my laundry hanging in the background!!!!!

Top: Papaya @ Matalan.
Skirt: Camrieu.
Cardie/Vest: Primark.
Tights: Asda.
Hair Flower: Claire's Accessories.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!
Did you celebrate either of these and if so how??

However the day before the ball I took Lissy to meet her grandparents and Great-Grandad at a local shopping centre, as my Great-Grandad needed some new shoes .. Whilst there I tried on this dress (I had seen previously but my husband had said he wasn't sure he liked it)

However I did ;P So it came!
