Hi!


One of my favourite blogs to read is Putting Me Together by the lovely Audrey.

When I saw that she was doing this challenge I thought that I would give it a go. I bought this dress a few years ago for a holiday. I didn't realise until I got home that it was actually a dress that you can wear with or without straps and it also converts into a long skirt!

Hi!

 
A letter to your readers
 
Dear Readers

I am writing this letter to you to say thank you for following me on my journey as Blog Nat.  It's been 6 months, yes 6 whole months since I started out doing this and every minute of it I have enjoyed.  I knew I wanted to share  something with people and here I have found out that there are plenty of people out there that are interested in what I have to say.  You may nod off part way but your comments are greatly recieved - even those that read "dlfks;jl kfdj vjaljldafk sdskl" when your head hits the keyboard!

6 months has given me the chance to show you what I love the most, shopping, fashion, make up etc and during that time it's given me a chance to lighten Mr C's wallet tee hee.  He now knows when to hand over his hard earned cash when we are out shopping as those famous words "ooh I like" peel through his ears and the sweats begin as he knows this is the start of something much bigger - a shopping spree.

To be able to swap tips and advice with other readers has been brilliant and something that I've enjoyed.  Doing this blog page has given me a reason to stay up past 9pm and into the early hours of the morning typing away on my laptop.  You know how it is, you get an idea in your head and you just can't stop typing and you look up at the clock and you think nah that isn't right, take another look and realise that hours have passed, work is in a few hours.  You count down the hours before you are due to be up again and think ahhhhhh and carry on typing, oops.

I'm like The Kinks song, Dedicated Follower of Fashion, well follower in my own sense and style.  I hope you have enjoyed and continue to enjoy my little blogs.  I've enjoyed reading yours.
 
Much Love

Car Boot Haul

2 comments

Hi!
 
We took a trip to our local car boot on Saturday. It starts at 7.30am so it's good to get there early and wonder around before it gets too hot.
 
Here are a few pictures of what I got
 
 
One of my favourite films!
 
 
 
 
Not sure where this top is from but it was so lovely I couldn't resist it!
 
 I was a bit cheeky and asked Mr C to go back and get the bracelets and top, I was not wearing appropriate footwear for walking around, the stall holders originally wanted £3 for the top and £6 for all the bracelets and make up bag but they must have felt sorry for Mr C and gave it to him all for £6!
 
Watch out for more car boot posts, we are going to as many as possible whilst the weather is nice!
 
Much Love

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 25

Hi!


Something someone once told you about yourself
 
 
''For a fat girl you can really dance''
 
 
Yep, this is what a guy once said to me when I was dancing in a club one night.
 
What did he think, just because I'm a big girl that I can't dance? If there is one thing that I think I'm pretty good at, it is dancing. I love music so for me the two go hand in hand really.
 
Oh and after he said it I just replied ''yes, I know I can'', smiled and carried on dancing!
 
Much Love

Hi




 
Things you've learned that school wont teach you
 
1. The taxman is not your friend
 
2. Leaving home is not so much fun at the beginning -bills bills bills
 
3.Chasing after boys was far easier than trying to find a man!
 
4.Trying to think of things to cook for dinner everyday is HARD!
 
5. The older you get the harder life is (sometimes not all the time!)
 
Much Love

New Lipglosses

Thursday, 25 July 2013 | No comments

Hi!

Over the last few weeks I have purchased a few more new lip glosses to add to my ever growing collection.

The first one I got was this Korres Lip Butter in Plum. I had read about these in a few beauty blogs that I had been reading. One Saturday whilst in our local town I noticed that our Lloyds pharmacy had been given a little makeover so I decided to take a look. I was so surprised, it is a wonderful little beauty haven now.



As it wasn't payday yet I only got the lip butter but I will definitely be going back to Lloyds to check out the Ren skincare line.

The other two I purchased whilst we were in Portsmouth at the Cosmetics Company Store. I did go a little crazy in there and picked up a few other bits which I will put on a separate post.

These are both from MAC. The first is the dazzleglass, which is the first one I have tried. I always tend to buy the lipglass. The colour of this one is very neutral and slightly sparkly which is one of the reasons I was drawn to it!  It does look lovely on the lips and goes on smoothly with the little brush. The only downside is that it has a lot of glitter bits in it, when I looked in the mirror one lunchtime whilst I was wearing it at work I had bits all over my face and even on my cardigan!





The lipstick is another neutral colour, I don't tend to wear lipstick as I find that they can be quite drying on my lips, but this one is lovely. I use it along with the Cork Lipliner from MAC and a little bit of vaseline on the top and it stayed in place from 8.00am until I had my lunch at 12.30.  Lip gloss for me never stays on whilst I am eating!

Much Love

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 22

Hi!



Rant about something!
 
Ok, so something that really really bothers me at the moment is naughty dog owners.
 
In this weather that we have been enjoying there is nothing worse than walking through a park or on the pavement and seeing dog muck!
 
Euugghh I know dogs have to poop but please pick it up, it's not nice when you are walking along and squelch, there is your foot in some stinking foul mess that you have to go home and either throw away your shoes or hose them down.
 
Pop to your local shop and buy some bags.....ohh and don't forget to not leave your dogs in the car.
 
Rahhhhh
 
That's all.
 
Much Love

Fete Time

Hi

Another day out for us!

This time we went to a local fete, classic car show and beer festival. It was on Saturday so it was super hot. I got my legs out in my asda shorts and added a pretty vest top which I got from H&M.

Here are some pictures from the day!

Hi

 
Something I'm struggling with

I feel like I'm constantly stressed at the moment, a number of things can contribute to this but the main one is selling/buying a house. I feel overwhelmed with amount of paperwork and things not going fast enough for my liking. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed everyday that it all goes through smoothly!

Much Love
