Recently Loving

I’ve recently had a thing for pink. Hot pink. And H&M has some gorgeous, amazingly priced items in their stores at the moment and on my lunch break a few weeks ago I picked up this simple dress for £7.99. I have recieved dozens of compliments and it looks great on it’s own, with sandals, chunky ankle boots, a smart blazer or just a jumper thrown over the top.

I read her blog post the other day about her recent Hush purchases and at the end she said she was umm-ing and ahh-ing over this skirt. It’s been reduced from £50 to £25 and the simple-sexiness of it had me convinced! It’s on its way now!

Recently I’ve been settling in front of the TV at the right time, and caught some brilliant episodes. The other evening I watched the Cam-turns-10 (40) episode and I was belly-laughing out loud by myself. It makes me very happy.

I was at home when we realised he had gone missing and spent the whole weekend searching, putting up flyers and knocking on neighbour’s doors. It’s horrible and in a weird twist of fate, the house I’m looking after have just got a tiny, blue kitten called Fergie. She’s delicious and although it’s hard because she looks exactly like Bert did as a kitten, it is nice to look after a little kitten who is very naughty.

As usual, I get bored with long hair and decide I want a change, snip it all off and then of course a few months later I wish I had my long hair back! Problem with my hair is that it’s quite thin and so it doesn’t work that well being very long because it tends to look a bit lifeless and lank. Despite this, I’ve been dreaming of dip-dying it again and that it may look like this one day…
