Review of 2014

Let's quickly skip over the fact that I've not blogged for a very long time.

Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas break. I've managed to gain weight, damage my liver and lose track of what day it is. I cannot wait to get stuck back into a daily routine of kids at school, me at work and my NEW HEALTHY way of living. I need to undo all that  has been done lately so be prepared to be bored of my nutribullet pictures on Insta!

What better way to slip back into blogging with some of my favourite looks throughout the year.
I cannot be bothered to do a 'oh look at what's in the sales' post - BORING! I am totally bamboozled by the sales and I've promised myself to curb all spending as I have 3 girlie holidays to go on next year and we haven't yet planned our family summer one. Needs must, the clothes shopping has to stop.

Christmas break

Time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. This is the last post for 2014 as I'm busy getting ready for the big day.

Thank you to all my readers & comments throughout 2014 and I look forward to bringing you more in 2015.

I'll still be active on Facebook and Instagram over the next few weeks.

Gemini Fashion - Blogger event

Two weeks ago Donna and I were invited by the lovely ladies from Gemini Fashion to play dress up for the day at their shop in Stratford Upon Avon. We had our hair done by the talented staff at Matthew Curtis and make up by Space NK. We were made to feel super special all day.

The theme of the day was "party". I have few occasions to get dressed up in real life so I was so excited to be wearing such amazing outfits by French Connection, Sandwich and Hobbs. Elizabeth and Holly were our stylists for the day and were absolutely spot on with the outfits they chose for us.

The first dress I tried on was from Sandwich, which is a brand I've never heard of before, but the cut and fit was perfect. Fitted but not tight due to stretchy side panels. The open neck was really flattering too.

Sainsbury's 25% off

I had to pop to Sainsbury's on Friday to get some bread. You know where this is going don't you?! I bought said bread and also wine as they have a great offer on right now. 25% off if you buy 6 bottles or more and this is ON TOP OF the already discounted by 50% wine I was buying.

Anyway, I took myself off to the clothes section as they have 25% off clothing this weekend. Last time I went armed with good intentions of buying I found nothing. This time I was in luck! So much to choose from.

A quick show and tell of what I tried on:

Navy and white striped tunic £12 - I loved this off the hanger but on it was just a bit 'meh'.
I didn't buy.
