High Street Wants

There are so many things that I want at the moment, not just for me but for my home as well as I need to get the living room more cosy..  Anyway back to the main subject of this post… FASHION!!!

I’ve already posted about the below Next jumper as I purchased it before I flew out to Rimini on 22nd September.  But what I didn’t realise was that they did it in Green, I have it in Oatmeal.  This jumper is RRP £34454851

ZARA

I found these little beauties on Pinterest, and it states that they are from Zara, but I’ve looked on the website and I can’t see them, so I’m not sure if they are last season or new season and just not on the website yet? But they are just so cute and I love the colour…

Double Layer Trousers – Zara RRP £15.99.  I have just spotted these on the Zara website after trying to look for the yellow heels.  I love this bottle green colour..

Dress with Tie waist – Zara £15.99 The dress falls to above the knee. Round neck. 3/4 length sleeves to the elbow. V-neck at the back. Wide belt detail.

Printed Letters T-Shirt – Zara RRP £5.99 Short T-shirt. Round neck. Short sleeves. Letter print detail on the front.

well i hope you have liked some of the Highstreet wants that I like and hope to purchase in the near future..  Most have been Zara, but that has only come from tonight by looking at there website.  There are a few River Island wants also but i will keep these for another post..

Hope you have all had a good Monday, well as good as it could be!

Lots of Love

Afternoon Tea at The Ritz

The world’s greatest hotel, as conceived by the world’s greatest hotelier. For over a century The Ritz London has been the benchmark by which other hotels are measured. A London landmark at 150 Piccadilly, The Ritz has been home to the great and the good, the intelligentsia, the glitterati and thousands of discerning guests since 1906.One of my good friends hit the BIG 40 in the 11th September, so her daughter, myself and two others took her to The Ritz for afternoon Tea.

Its one place that I’ve always wanted to go to, so when I got asked I jumped at the chance..  It was a very traditional British hotel, Union Jack flags draped around the hotel used as curtains which is a great touch and not to over powering.

The tables were set out beautiful, proper silver milk jugs, sugar holders and tea strainers, i haven’t seen a tea strainer since I was like 10/11 years old.  I loved the cups and saucers too.I’d have to say the sandwiches and cakes look yummy when they got brought out, there was 5 of us having afternoon tea and the amount of food that we had was crazy, we finished one plate of sandwiches and then they brought another plate out.  On the top plate there was 4 cakes each, and then they brought out scones, jam and cream and they brought out 12 scones for 5 of us!!!  I mean 12 scones that was a little over the top, they then brought out another top plate of cakes as I wanted to try a cinnamon chocolate one, only wanted one but he brought out another full plate!!!

And all 5 of us were completely stuffed by the time we left, so a little tube ride to Harrods and a walk round Harrods did the trick  to work off the food coma…

Pretty flowers in the toilets 🙂

Well I hope you have all liked reading this post?

Next Embroidered Jumper

While I was waiting for my flight to Rimini on Thursday 22nd September at Stansted airport I went for a little wonder around some of the shops, I went into Mulberry but I was just dreaming of buying a handbag but that will have to wait till I’ve saved up some more pennies but I will get one!!  It’s on the wish list!

I had a little browse in Next, had no intention of buying anything and as I was leaving I spotted a jumper out the corner of my eye. The jumper is so easy to wear and comfortable, it has some beautiful embroidery on the sleeve and shoulders, I then turned the jumper round to look at the back and it had the most beautiful pattern.  Pictures are from the Next website, they also do this in green which I didn’t realise but I will be buying this also as it looks beautiful with pink in the embroidered detail..

Here is the front of Green Version

How beautiful id the Green version, this would look good teamed with a pair of white trainers and casual Mom jeans or a pair of skinny’s.

Hope you have enjoyed this quick post on my Next purchase…

Lots of Love
