Spring 2016 Clothing Haul

Hi everyone

Thanks for stopping by for my Spring clothing haul.  I am feeling full of the joys of Spring and wanted to share a few of my recent clothing purchases with you guys.  there is also a handbag thrown in for good measure.

First up is this striped cold-shoulder top.  I am a total stripe LOVER and I am also loving the current 'cold-shoulder' trend so when I saw this top I just knew it was the one for me.  It is navy with white stripes and although I am not a huge red fan I think the red section at the top really lifts it and makes it a little more interesting.  It cost £13 in the sale at Dorothy Perkins.  I am off to Weymouth this month for a week and this nautical coloured top will definitely be joining me.  I will probably team it up with some dark denim jeans.




I also got this cream safari shirt with gold coloured buttons which I think adds a really nice touch from Dorothy Perkins.  I got a khaki vest top to go under it and plan to team it with my black jeans and hopefully my black gladiator sandals, although more realistically in UK Spring time it will probably have to be my cream Chelsea boots.



I am not too sure how to describe this top it is a kinda mesh, crochet vest which you would need to wear a vest top underneath or you could chuck it on over your bikini top I guess.  It it coral at the bottom and fades into white at the top.  It cost £19.99 from Superdry.


Lastly I got this cream and black Fiorelli handbag.  I wanted something that was bigger for work as my small shoulder bag was pretty crammed.  It was from the ASOS sale and was originally £69 but I snapped it up for £35. 




If you guys are interested in a 'Whats in my handbag?' then please let me know in the comments section below.

Until next time...adios!

Home Decor Purchases

Hi y'all!

I thought I would share a few of my recent homeware purchases.

Here is my gorgeous autumn trees canvas.  It was a Next sale bargain as it was £80 reduced to £25.  It reminds me of our trip to Center Parcs, Longleat last year for our Anniversary.  I bought it with a view to putting it on the blank wall in my study above the desk.  It has made it into a real feature wall and I love it.



I was fed up of the cheap plastic peg baskets breaking after minimal use.  So I decided to invest in this Metal peg tin in the hope that it would last longer.  It cost £5.99 from Home Sense) and I keep it indoors to avoid it going rusty.  


I also plan to get some smart new pegs to go in it as mine have become brittle in their old age and have a tendancy to snap and ping at my face!


Next up is this outdoor cushion was also a Next sale purchase.  I bought two of them to put in the arbour seat in my garden. 



They are rather huge but the colourful stripes really brighten up the garden don't you think?



What recent homeware purchases have you made?

What I Ate Wednesday No.73

Breakfast

Chia Pudding - I prepped this breakfast the night before, in this little pot I have chia seeds mixed with cocoa powder, maple syrup and milk, topped with an Activia 0% vanilla yogurt and a few plain choc chips.  The smoothie was mixed berries with semi skimmed milk and maple syrup.  I also had a cup of tea which is not in shot.


Lunch

Brunch at Giraffe - Firstly apologies for the blurry photo.  This was vegetarian brunch at Giraffe which went down rather nicely after a morning of shopping.  It consisted of beans, 2 vegetarian sausages, mushrooms, sliced avocado and scrambled egg on sour dough bread.  I often have this when I eat at Giraffe as I love it so much.  Drink = water.


Snack


After my large lunch I only fancied a bagel for my dinner.  This is a New York Bakery Co. cinnamon and raisin thin bagel topped with Meridian smooth peanut butter one side and strawberry jam on the other.  Drink = water.
