10 Day You Challenge - 10 Secrets

Image
Hi! I have seen so many of these posts I thought I would give it a go as well. I'm a bit late doing it as I was going to start it around the same time as the 30 day blog challenge but I couldn't manage both! Ten Secrets 1. I have a slight phobia of open water and swimming pools. I have swimming lessons to try and get over the fear and also to learn to swim!   2. I was born in Germany 3.I'm allergic to Quorn 4. I have really tiny ears, everyone is amazed by how small they are when they see me! 5. I have the worst eyesight. I'm a -9 in both eyes. 6. I always have to sleep near a window and as far away from the door as possible. 7. I have never been to a funeral   8. I have a weird phobia of buttons   9. I'm scared of thunder and lightning   10. I passed my driving test on my fourth attempt. Much Love   N x

Designer outlet shopping - joy or nightmare!?

So, for some reason I decide that a trip to Bicester Outlet Village would be a good idea.  For me, once the shakes have subsided at the thought of going to a designer outlet centre, I throw on an ensemble which I consider to be with it and rather hip and possibly looking somewhat "posh". Arriving at the Village is no mean feat, stressed from being parked in the biggest car park ever, the A41, I finally approach and circle the Village car park like a maniac, daring anyone but anyone to take any free parking space that comes up. For some reason I've turned into a possessed driver. I'm all parked and a brief glance around at the posh cars sends a little shiver down my spine.  I suddenly question, why am I here when George or Primarni (as I like to call and lots of others out there tee hee) are my comfort zone for clothing.  Fear not I hear faintly in my head, they do big sizes - yeah right in Clarkes shoe shop! My first step into the Village and I'm swamped

Swindon to Cirencester

Image
Hi! When we went to Swindon we decided to make a day of it and visit somewhere near by.  We ended up in Cirencester, a town about 25 minutes away from Swindon. Here are a few pictures from our day, I didn't take too many as I was too busy popping in and out of the shops!   OOTD   Jacket - Asda T-Shirt - Gap Jeans - New Look Shoes - Sainsburys Bag - TK Maxx   Much Love   N x

OMCZ #14

Image
Hi! Time for the next OMCZ Challenge! This time it was my turn to choose. I was really excited to choose the theme this time, I had thought about it a few weeks ago and kept my fingers crossed that it wouldn't get picked (I did have a plan  just in case!). Here is what I wrote for the email: Unleash your wild side Leopard, cheetah, zebra....... I hope that will join me in unleashing your wild side and show some love for  animal print! Shoes, tops ,bags or be brave and go head to toe! Here is my outfit! I got the top/dress from the sale in Tesco a few months ago but I haven't worn it yet. The scarf is an old one from Primark, it's one of my favourites to wear and I think that the belt was free courtesy of my sisters wardrobe! tee hee! Check out the other lovely ladies taking part!   Much Love   N x     Name Blog Stephanie  http://www.seeingsp0ts.blogspot.co.uk Leah  http://www.justmeleah.blogspot.co.uk Mary  h

An afternoon tea

Image
Hi!   On Saturday Mr C and I treated ourselves to some more pampering. We saw a deal on Travelzoo for am afternoon tea plus either a massage or facial at a hotel not too far from where we live. It was £19 each and we had a 25 minute treatment each ( I had a facial and Mr C had a hot stone massage). Then we had a lovely afternoon tea and went home feeling thoroughly relaxed.         My skin felt amazing after using these products!   Much Love   N x

Making a statement!!

Image
  Hi!   I love jewellery, there you go! Anything that's big, sparkly and will fit me no matter what will always catch my eye! It's so bad that a few years ago my colleagues at the company I worked for bought me a bag full of jewellery for my birthday, it made a fab surprise from the usual chocolate and flowers!   I'm quite partial to statement pieces at the moment. I feel like add a bit of pizazz ( oh errr) to an outfit that could be quite plain.     Here are a few pictures of my favourite necklaces at the moment!      I will be doing a post on my jewellery collection soon but with over 40 necklaces it might take a awhile!   Much Love   N x

Mr C Styles Me!

Image
Hi! Last week I had a real mental block with what to wear, each morning I would get up and literally chuck on something! I normally have my outfit put together the night before so it was a case of wearing something that matched and was comfortable! So on Thursday I asked Mr C what he would pick for me to wear to wear to work and this is what he choose!   Top - Tesco Waterfall Jacket - New Look Skirt - Asda Shoes - Debenhams   I think he did a good job! These are all pieces that I have had in my wardrobe for sooo long and haven't worn for ages!   Would you let your partner style you?   Much Love   N x

A Lucky Week!

Image
Hi! A few weeks ago I entered the giveaway on Becky's Blog - The Ramblings of Mrs BeBe  and was lucky enough to win a £25 voucher to spend at Sorrento Clothing ! I think that I will use this treat myself to something new for Plus North in September! Here are some of my favourites from their website at the moment: The following week when we went to Swindon I entered a lucky draw in Boots (in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support) which was a £1 a ticket. I got a call on the Tuesday to let me know I had won forth prize! Here is what was in my bag:   How pretty is the Miss Dior box!   I hope that this set is nice, its always difficult to find eyeshadows that will make my eyes stand out behind my glasses!     I can't wait to try the perfumes as I have never had any Dior scents before and Mr C got quite a few treats as well! The lipstick did look quite scary but when I tried it on it gives a lovely sheer colour and not too bold as I
