Carrying on the starry theme from a previous blog. So I can see that are some differences such as the necklines, Hush V-neck and New Look rounded neckline. Then there is the fact the Hush sweater has some wool in rather than the New Look half and half cotton and acrylic. And I suppose you… Read More Still stargazing ……..
What a palava! I ordered a huge amount of things from M&S over a week ago. Trying to take advantage of the 20% discount I ordered sizes 12 and 14 in everything as from past experience I order the one size which is then too small, love it but discover I’ve missed the discount. Whilst I… Read More Mainly good, couple of horrors ………
It has been a long old week, with one thing and another. To top things off, instead of sitting watching Strictly with a glass of something, I shall be dragging all the kids down to a squash club in Wimbledon as the eldest is playing in a tournament this weekend. I don’t know who’s idea… Read More Outfits from the week …….
Never really thought about it too much but I do love a star. And it appears that the stars are out in the shops at the moment. I’ve brought a couple of things (make that tonnes of things but most will be returned) recently to get me on my way for the Autumn. One is… Read More Seeing stars ……..
I make no secret of loving M&S. Once you get your head around their oh so annoying website and accept that so much that is in store is not online and visa versa there are some great little purchases to be found. There is always that little niggle that things are so obviously Marks that… Read More Great load of wardrobe basics ….
But it’s too damn hot. I can’t go anywhere or do anything without breaking out in attractive rivers of sweat. Certainly not the day to play an hour of squash, which I did today and ended up feeling I was half the weight I started out at. However I gather it’s all due to change… Read More Never thought I’d say it …..
I’ve only got a couple of denim jackets, a cheap one from Warehouse that is probably my favourite and another more expensive one from Diesel. However I’d definitely have a larger collection, if only my budget allowed. I wouldn’t get away with wearing one to work but I’m finding that I’m getting increasing wear from… Read More Denim to Spend ‘Em On ….
I thought summer was done – kids are back in school, I’ve stopped painting my toenails and I was on the brink of buying a gorgeous grey M&S sleeveless cardigan that would be a welcome addition to the A/W wardrobe. However there’s just no point as it’s been so weirdly hot this week. So we… Read More Last rays of sunshine …..
All three kids finally back to school, hoo-bloody-ray. So in order to celebrate I’ve taken a day off work, just to wallow in a bit of peace and quiet. Although it’s as muggy as anything Autumn must be just around the corner so time to look at some of the A/W bits that could be… Read More And breathe ……
I almost feel I have to make things up, we’ve done so little. 5 days in and we’re yet to drive anywhere, put any make up on or buy anything more than ice creams. We really aren’t usually lucky with the weather, in fact the last time we did an extended family holiday like this… Read More Diary of mooching around ……
