New Hair

I hadn’t had my hair cut for a good few months, and I was desperate to have it cut as I go away on Sat 7th and it needed doing badly, I also wanted something different style wise and colour.  I’d seen a post on Facebook of a rose brown colour which I liked, as I usually just have highlights or low-lights.

I have to say that am chuffed with the outcome, and I love the colour.  All I need to do now is master the curling technique with my straighteners. I am gutted that i never got a before picture!!

Excuse the above face on the picture!

Hope you have enjoyed this post & like the hair!

Love for Kate Spade ❤️💛🧡

Can’t believe it’s coming up to a month since Kate Spade took her own life. Such sad news to read when it was published over the internet.

55 years is no age, and a well established women within the Fashion Industry and she will carry on being. I have heard of Kate Spade previously but didn’t really properly fall in love with her designs until NYE, 31st December 2015 when I had made my long awaited holiday to NYC!!!  We made our way to the Top end of 5th Ave after a little stroll round Central Park, the first shop we spotted and went into was Kate Spade and it had a Sale on so that was even better.  We were mooching around looking and one of the shop assistants said did you know we have another 2 floors? I was like oh no, so off I went up to the first floor and my eyes lit up – Bags and Shoes Galore! I was like a kid in a sweet shop.

My first Kate Spade Bag & matching Purse

I travel backed to New York in Dec 2017 with 3 friends, I know what I wanted to get I wanted a new bag and matching purse but I wasn’t sure whether it would of been Michael Kors or Kate Spade.  I looked at Michael Kors in Macy’s and didn’t see any handbags I liked but I did spot a cute Red Jet Set across the body bag and a small coin purse to match which I brought.  I visited the Kate Spade store which is at the Rockafella Centre and nothing really jumped out at me, the other Kate Spade store I visited was at the Westfield shopping mall at Ground Zero, where I purchased my second Kate Spade bag and matching purse in Navy.

I will be adding to my Kate Spade collection, as well as adding to my Michael Kors Collection too..  That will be on hold for a few months as currently in the process of moving and also a few other things which are going on, but they do have a sale on at the min which is very tempting!!!  Why not pop over and have a look?

Hope you have all enjoyed this post, do you have any Kate Spade goods?  Why not drop a comment or picture?

OOTD Thursday 28th June 18

I was up in Liverpool from 27th to 29th June visiting the boy, and the weather has been beautiful, it was glorious sunshine the whole time I was there.  I must admit that when it is glorious weather like it has been I love wandering down The Albert Dock and to the Pierhead & Waterfront area as there is some nice areas to sit, its great for people watching and  was also looking at getting some vitamin D and get a bit of a tan.

All of my outfit is from New Look, but is all old season.  I love the black culottes, as they are lightweight and also comfortable to wear. The multi coloured striped cami I love as its a summery top and perks me up when I’m wearing it.

Well I hope you all had a great weekend, and have been enjoying the sunshine, and its here for the rest of the week at least, but I’m off to Benidorm on Saturday at 1am for a few days, so i’m looking forward to the break away from home, relax, sun, cocktails and laughs.

Lots of Love

Chapter 7



Seriously thou where is this year going.. I mean it’s now July 📆 it’s crazy!!

Arranging a birthday gathering for my mum as she has recently moved into a nursing home as she hasn’t been well.

Me & five others are off to Benidorm on 7th for a few days for a 40th Birthday Bash 🎉🎈.

Also I move into my new place this month.. As I’m trying to save some pennies and should save roughly £150ish a month. So with this I can pay off my debt a little quicker and also save some.

Its one of my best friends Little Girl’s first birthday on 11th July!  It’s crazy how quick that year has gone…

Hoping The Boy is finally going to come down and spend sometime with me at my place ❤️.

I’m hoping to get a few more things slotted in for this month but will have to see what comes up and how the pennies stretch.

Hope you have enjoyed this post.

☀️☀️Sunny Sunday☀️☀️

What a beautiful day it was yesterday, 24th June! The Sun and Blue Skies were a gorgeous sight to see all day..

I was planning on having a productive house work kinda morning, but I got a text from an old work mate who I’ve note seen in about 7 months we arranged she’d pick me up then head into town for a coffee and a catch up. We ended up going to Patisserie Valerie, as I had brought a Brunch for two Groupon Voucher.

With it being such a lovely morning we sat outside in the sun..

I went for a Latte and Eggs Benedict and I paid extra for a sausage 🙈. It was a lovely brunch and a right little bargain for two people.

Groupon is great for deals local and for some of the bigger cities like London, Manchester etc, I’m always looking but not very often that I buy, but I will have to start looking more. They also do hotel stays and city breaks which I have never booked think I will have to try as some can be great little finds. There was a voucher for Afternoon Tea at Patisserie Valerie, so why not get yourself on Groupon to see what deals they have in your local area

Then I headed to the pub about 12:30 to meet another friend & her boys to watch England vs Panama, so a few Pink Gin’s were in order as it had been a long week! 😬🙄

Lots of Love



Liverpool ❤️

Yippee!! Back here on the 27th to 29th June.

Can’t wait, needed & long overdue time with The Boy and to celebrate his birthday 24 days late!! 🙈

I have a few things planned, one is that I’m going to decorate the room where we are stopping before he comes to meet me, make it special for him 🎉😆🤩🎈.

Then a nice meal and drinks on the Wednesday, on the Thursday in the day it’s the start of The Baltic Markets 1st Birthday so possible to head there for a wonder, food & drinks. Not quite sure what to do on the Thursday evening? So any ideas feel free to comment any suggestions 📨.

And then a nice bit of last min time together on the Friday for some brunch at Patisserie Valerie, thanks to Groupon @ £14.95 for two people! #BillyBargain ☕️🥓🍳

OOTN Saturday 2nd June 18

A lovely couple I know John & Emily got married & they invited me to the Evening Reception.

I had no idea what I was going wearing, rummaged in my wardrobe and pulled out 6 possible outfits! I tried on a LBD first but I didn’t feel comfortable felt a little short, the second was a floral dress which I’d brought when I was working at New Look and shock hadn’t been worn 😆. I felt good when I was wearing it and then had to decide which shoes! Nightmare! 😱

I love the colour and the print in this dress 🧡

Dress • New Look

Shoes • Mango

Bag • Katie Loxton

Thanks for reading peeps 🤓

Lots of Love

OOTD Sunday 3rd June 18

Good Morning & Happy Sunday 😀

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend and the weather has been good where you are??

I’m out and about today to the Sister’s and to pop and see my Mum. I prefer Sundays to be lazy and I don’t make loads of effort, I know that sounds bad but most of my Sundays are at home where I’m just lounging around in my PJs or joggers and a Tee.

I’ve gone for a casual look with a mixture of high-street & designer. Primark ~ Perfectly Imperfect Tee £4 • Skinny Jeans £6 Sale

New Look ~ Sandals. Dorothy Perkins ~ Jacket

Kate Spade NYC ~ Bag

I have a reason for wearing this Tee today! I’m making a statement to my older sister as she thinks she is something else!!!

But anyway that’s another story 😆😆

Hope you have enjoyed this post! Hope you have a fab rest of your Sunday.

Lots of Love
