Farm Outfit


Jacket - Forevr 21 // Top - Tesco // Shorts and loafers- New Look //
Bag - Topshop //

Just my casual outfit from my day at the farm on Friday! The pasty legs have officially come out for spring/summer, so I can't go back to tights now. Luckily it was an absolutely gorgeous day, as you can see from the pictures, but what happened on Sunday? It suddenly got sooo cold and wet...yuck. What did you guys get up to over the bank holiday weekend?

Holiday Outfits



Once I'd done all my pre-holiday shopping I couldn't resist putting together a few outfits that I hope to wear whilst I'm away! As you can tell, I'm really into crop tops at the moment so it will be nice to be somewhere warm enough to actually wear them and show them off! I love the monochromatic style of the first outfit so I can really see myself wearing a version of that all summer long! But I also love the tropical theme of the second. What do ya reckon? Which is your fave?

Easter Friday



 Just had to share these super cute pics of what I got up to on easter Friday. Big kids that we are, we went to a farm on the moors that specialises in Miniature ponies but also had sheep, birds, pigs, shire horses and loads of gorgeous parkland. It was such a fun day out! Since all my pets died, I've been missing having a cute fur-ball to cuddle when I get back from work, but cuddling Rosemary the deformed miniature pony more than made up for that! She was so soft and cuddly like a teddy bear - too cute! Is this the kind of day out that you would enjoy? I'm surely not alone in loving farms!

Little Easter Things


 Happy Easter Y'all! I hope you're having a lovely day with family or friends and enjoying the bank holiday weekend wherever you are!! Disclaimer: I may or may not have broken my pre-holiday detox and scoffed a whole load of praline and marzipan eggs, creme brulee chocs, coffee and walnut cake AND hot cross buns. Whoops. Silly me.

Touch of Spring


jacket - Sammydress // Shirt & Boots - Primark // Jeans and Bag - Topshop

Oh what a surprise...it's that Sammydress jacket again. I really need to start wearing something different! It was a bit of a windy day when I took these photos, hence the disheveled appearance, but then, that's pretty much a daily occurrence with me. I shamble from one disaster to the next!

So, what's everyone's plans for Easter? I've got Friday and Sunday off and then Monday I'm off to the Canary Islands for a week, so I'm trying to pack and shop for that, whilst getting everything tied up last minute.com. I still hope to have some Easter fun with the family though. I may be on a detox and trying not to touch chocolate but I won't let that stop me from partaking in Easter themed events! I'll just have to swap the chocolate eggs for real eggs. Let me know what you're up to, I'd love to hear what your idea of a fun bank holiday weekend is...

New In!


I've got big love for the post man today as he brought me this beauty from American Apparel! Gah! Isn't it gorgeous? £24 is usually a bit more than I'm prepared to pay for a little scrap of material, but when it's as pretty as this, well it would be rude not to buy it, wouldn't it?? I tried this one on in store in Manchester about a month ago and fell in love with it there and then, but I wasn't sure if I had enough to wear it with in my wardrobe to justify flashing the cash on it, so I waited til I got home and I did bide my time a bit, before totally giving in and getting it anyway! The tropical rainforest palm print is right up my street, it's going to look so good on holiday and in summer with ripped jean shorts or a black skirt, or mis-matched with another print - ooohhhh! the choices are endless! FYI this is my first ever American Apparel buy, and I got it in a medium as I didn't want it really tight and constricting, but it still fits perfectly. Now I'm wondering what else I can get in this wonderful print!

Wedding Fever


 I wanted to do something a bit different with this post and show you guys a bit of what I do when I'm not blogging! As I'm sure you're aware, wedding season is now officially among us and I'm sure you all have lots of weddings to attend this summer. Planning an outfit for each wedding is one thing (you want to look amazing - but not upstage the bride right?) but when it comes to buttonholes and corsages, so many just go for the easy option. I can't tell you the amount of people who walk into the florists and ask for the cheapest possible buttonhole (which as it happens is a boring white carnation). Where's the individuality, people?!

So with this in mind, and bearing in mind my absolute love for flowers and all things creative, I'm on a one-woman mission to show people that there is an alternative! All these designs I have made myself as part of my ongoing training in floristry and I loved being able to make something unique and a bit different, letting my creativity run wild. It beats a drab carnation buttonhole any day. Orchids and succulents were practically made for corsages as they're so long lasting, and yes they are a bit more expensive, but a well-made, unique corsage, hair slide, or handbag spray will make you stand out from the crowd and show off your style-setting credentials! It will only enhance your carefully styled outfit even more!

So the next time you attend a wedding or posh event, I urge you to think outside the box! Ask your local independent florist for something a bit different - you won't be disappointed!

What do you guys reckon? Do you like these designs or do you prefer something a bit more traditional?
