New Years Eve Outfit

It's that time of year again!

Where you forget what day of the week it is and wear pjamas all day long.

... well I have been!

We still have a few days until work is back on again so we may as well enjoy in style and looking nice.

This outfit is all from 

in the post Christmas sales.

I think it would look nice on a casual night at the pub counting down to midnight

or your own house party!


My thumb ring is from River Island 

and the other is Pandora.

The leaf earrings I got for 50p 

and the boots (Fuggs) *fake uggs

I got for £5 

I'm using them as slippers, they are so super comfy!

But you can always use them as proper shoes as they have a solid plastic sole.

And my little poopy couldn't help but get involved!

Have a great new years and it feels good to be back.

Get it together.

So I haven't blogged for a while...


I haven't blogged for 94 days to be precise.

You see.. I have had to sort a few things out first.

Screw my head back was the first and 

get my perception of life back on track.

Blogging was fun and something I could do when I got home from work when my boyfriend wasn't around.

But it suddenly turned into one of these things:

If I didn't get a post out once a week I would feel less important as a 'blogger' and almost loose the status.

And the dreaded feeling of loosing less viewers each day because the content wasn't as good.

I didn't want blogging to be about that.

Many things in my personal life have flipped my world upside down this year and forced me to stop in my tracks, sit down and think rationally.

I am now thinking rationally and perfect fine :)

That's why I want to start a fresh.

2014 is going to be my year!

I am going to make it work for me 

and as my mum tells me:

'You have to rely on number one!'

My head is permanently screwed on and I am ready to rock and roll!

Yes it is a block of cheese.

Beauty Wishlist..

Now that you have seen my 

I'm bringing out the Beauty Wishlist too! 
Autumn is the usual time of year for 
darker lipsticks/nail polishes 
and intense moisturizer's

Well not for me, as I like to mix things up a bit and not go with the normal.


Autumn will not put me off getting this gorgeous light pink shade in There She Goes

My fellow bloggers have been raving about Topshop lipstick for a while now and I have been putting it off for too long now!
 You can see in my Lipstick Collection here I have a slight obsession with nudeish colours already and this will be adding to this problem I have.

BB Cream is one of my 2013  
'Thank God I found this product'
This product appears as though it will give just a gentle glow under a normal foundation base and during the Autumn/Winter months we still need to keep the tanning up to date!

 The 8 in 1 formula is a bit daunting at first but it includes:

1. Evens skin tone
2. Sheer tint
3. Boosts radiance
4. 16-hour moisturisation
5. Smoothes skin
6. Prolongs tan
7. SPF 15
8. Refreshing sensation

Now apart from the baffling last point this all sounds perfect to me. Can someone explain why a BB Cream will contain a refreshing sensation?

 May I ask??

Who wouldn't want Essie in their Wishlist!
 So many colours! I sometimes feel there too much to choose from!

Both colours I've picked are very pale and neutral tones but I think with the perfect outfit would look stunning!

I've only found one problem with the Essie polishes, they take forever to dry! And I generally end up smudging them :(

However they barely chip and have super staying power!

I've been eying these brushes up for a while now! 

Recently I have been using sponges for an even application but the amount of positive reviews & people using these are incredible.

I love that the two lovely ladies who created this brand were just like me and you once. They started out small and have grown they're own name/empire. Well Done Pixiwoo :)

I am a little late on the band wagon with this product but every time I'm in town it either appears to be sold out or I have two grumpy boys hurrying me up.

I certainly prefer the Peach Kiss as it appears as though it would show a beautiful warm colour with that hint of cheekyness to it!

I also think it needs to be more known that the brand is Maybelline, all I've heard is 'Baby Lips' and was unsure which stand to look at to find them.
Or is it just me being silly??

This product for me is a bit of an indulgence, I love to wrap my hair & face in a mask and sit back and let it work it's magic.

After the Summer months of caking our faces in Sun Cream, Cosmetics and Tanning Lotion I think the Autumn time is a great moment to let your skin relax and clean out all the mess.

Next year I think I might also take a trip down to the 
Covent Garden Spa and just chill for the day!  

What are you buying especially for Autumn??

Autumn Wishlist ...

Autumn has most certainly begun in England,

the first leaf I saw fell a couple of days ago,

Taylor (my son) is back to school,

and it's getting chilly and darker in the evenings.

I have been laid on the sofa most of the weekend as I have a stinking cold and headache.
So as you do, I have been window shopping the internet.

This seasons high street has some very exciting pieces, I'm really looking forward to getting home.


My perfect combo for a casual day out, early Christmas shopping or going out for a meal.

I would certainly get a 
cardigan and wooly pair of tights 
to wear with this outfit!


I'm unsure whether this pair would fit well together however I love them both separately.

I think the dress is a perfect outfit for your/your partners Christmas work party


Peep toe shoes are my guilty pleasure at the moment, so classic and the perfectly discrete way to show off beautifully manicured toes.


Personally I think this is a lovely way to wear stylishly warm and comfy clothing.

The earrings are bang on tend right now as triangles and aztec styling are the thing to wear right now!


Pyjamas are my biggest love of Autumn and Winter, they're so comfy!

 I already own a pair of New Look PJ's and they are undoubtedly the most comfy I have.

The Comic Cami looks super cute however I'm gutted they don't sell trousers to match.

I hope you guys are enjoying the Autumn so far!

Have you got any wishlists?
Or any Work Party OOTD ideas??
Send them across!
