Sunny mornings

This is my contribution to the polka dot trend, this dressing gown from H&M home. I didn’t anticipate purchasing one when I went in for a browse but it feels incredibly soft I had to have it.

Trend; Basket Bags

 


The weather was gorgeous in London today – the sunshine came!
After purchasing a straw basket bag today, I am a little obsessed with this summer trend. I have put together a few I have seen online, they are all divine for this warm weather and it’s hard to dislike them. Take it to the park, supermarket or a nice brunch with the girls in the sunshine, a versatile look for Spring/Summer.

The heat cometh

So it’s true, the sunshine IS here, I found this straw bag in Primark, I have had my eye to purchase one similar. Other retailers are selling it at such a higher price, it made sense to get it once I saw it, at a bargain price of £8 and the fact it’s scorching in London for a few days it’s getting an outing.

Silly purchases

Arrgh does anyone else have the odd silly purchase and kick themselves or is it just me?
I bought these Mango platform sandals a size up, there is a method to this madness, I tried the size 5 in the shop and it looked amazing, but I thought they were a little tight. I went home and looked at them online because I couldn’t stop thinking about them. I decided to get the 6  – what could go wrong? they have a buckle so I can tighten them up. They arrived, hurray they fit well and look fantastic, I walk around my flat in them for a bit – I am happy. I am winning!

So a few days have passed and I have decided today is the day and I will venture out in them. I walk for about 10 mins and DISASTER! my toes keep popping under the top strap meaning my toe is sticking out underneath and it bloody hurts. Hit me with a feather –  I have to wear these all day. I get home, they are scuffed from a days walking which means I CAN’T RETURN THEM LOOKING LIKE THIS! they go back in the box, I don’t think I have worn them out again – BUGGER THAT. So ladies and Gentlemen there is exhibit A for a perfect example of a silly purchase.

They are currently on the Vinted App for sale – sad face.

Eagerly awaiting spring

I walked past this tree today and had to take a snap. Very beautiful against the greens. Please may I have one in my bedroom?

With an umbrella, raincoat and knitwear still attached to me from December I think we can all say we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring.

Spring cleaning

I’ve started my spring cleaning for my wardrobe, this means selling items I don’t wear on eBay and use the money in my Paypal account to buy new things for Spring/Summer. I also started tidying up my jewellery and realised I hardly wear any Jewellery in the cold months. I’ve missed them and can’t wait for the weather to warm up. Roll on spring …

Any room for the kitchen sink?

Has anyone tried taking a small bag out? I attempt to and then realise I need this, this and this. A book for the tube, headphones to listen to a podcast at work, hand cream, lip balm, phone, purse, tissues, the list is endless. I feel like if I carry all my items in a backpack my back hurts, switch to a shoulder bag, my shoulder hurts, I see a pattern emerging here. What’s the solution, I can’t part with essential items, can I ?

Big bag, small bag, you will find that something is always missing you should have, could have taken so I’ll try to ditch the heavy items for now because nobody likes lugging things on a daily basis.

Mulberry in the Bush

When you find an absolute gem in a charity shop in Shepherd’s Bush. This might be my ultimate find. A vintage mulberry bag for £19.99 – unbelievable. I asked the lady why it was so cheap, she stated the zip was torn and needs repairing which will cost me a few bob.

Apart from that it’s in great condition and will contact Mulberry to get it fixed. In the mean time, I might put my blog name to good use and rootle around more often.
