Project 365 #057 - Free Food!



Day 057 - Free Food - Sorry for the crapola photo (taken on my iPhone again!) Saturday  was a busy day of cleaning, catching up with friends and eating free food.  Myself, Dylan and 3 other friends went to Pizza Hut for dinner and the couple that were sat on the table next to us got so annoyed about waiting 45 minutes for their starters that they got up in a huff and left so the very kind waiter gave us their food for free. WINNER!

Project 365 #056 - White Hot Choc


Day 056 - White Hot Choc - Today has been manic I stayed in work 2 hours longer than usual and literally just wanted to sleep as soon as I came through the door.  I didn't get home until gone midnight last night after seeing The Saturdays and was up again at 6:30 this morning.  On the plus side I am now off work for the whole of next week YIPPEE!!! I celebrated this by making white hot chocolates they are delicious, although I rather annoyingly ran out of cream whilst squirting my cup :-(

Project 365 #055 - The Saturdays on a Thursday



Day 055 - The Saturdays on a Thursday -  I didn't have any time to put my P365 photo up yesterday so here it is now!  My friend Gemma and I went up to Plymouth after work to see the Saturdays  for the second time (we saw them on their first tour in 2009).   They were fab and ridiculously stunning.  We were 4 rows from the front so had a really good view.  It's so nice to see a girl group that can actually sing, they are brilliant live!


I also fell in love with Frankie's shoes so had to take a close up pic haha.

Day 053 - Topshop Blush in Flush - I ordered this at the weekend as my local Topshop doesn't stock any make up, and it arrived in the post today.  I'm so excited to try this tomorrow, I already have neon rose which I love so I am expected good things from this shade and according to heat magazine both shades are Ellie Goulding's faves  (Dylan added the heart marshie to the photo btw, lol)

Project 365 #051 - Baby Bump Photos



Day 051 - Baby Bump Photos - Today I took  A LOT of photos of my friend Amy's baby bump.  The baby is due next week and I cannot wait to meet him/her.  


I had a perfect Sunday today, we went for a walk in the woods and took a few more photos there and then went and had a pub roast in a "proper" pub, and by proper I mean, there are shire horse brasses and brass plaques hanging on the walls, a roaring fire and old school carpet...... now that is what I call a real pub! We then stayed in there for the rest of the afternoon drinking tea by the fire and discussing what we are giving up for lent this year.  I have decided to give up shopping............ its gonna be tough!  Does anyone else ever give up anything for lent?  I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Project 365 #049 - Maisy got a new coat



Day 049 - Maisy got a new coat - Look at Maisy in her gorgeous new tartan coat (sorry for the crap quality I took it on my iphone)  Doesn't she look cute. I tried to order this coat on 4 different occasions and each time there was a problem.  The first company sent me the wrong one and so I returned it to them only for them to replace it with exactly the same one so I returned it AGAIN and got a full refund.  The 2nd and 3rd time I tried to order it I got an email response saying it was out of stock but then I finally found another company that had it in stock and they sent it to me yay!!


I'm so excited its the weekend.  Tomorrow I am heading to town to check out Topshop, it has been closed for over a month as they were having a refit oh how I have missed toppers so much!  I've also been contemplating getting a little heart tattoo on my wrist for like...... forever!  And so may look into that tomorrow whilst i'm in town.  I was going to get it done when I went to the states in November but there just wasn't enough time so watch this space.


This is kind of what I want, only smaller and not in the centre (photo source)

Project 365 #047 - I ♥ Abercrombie



Day 047 - I ♥ Abercrombie - This evening I was a walking advert for Abercrombie.  I bought the hoodie from the Abercrombie in London a couple of years ago, I absolutely love their hoodies, they are so warm and fleecy and wash up really well (ummm how old do I sound??).  The skirt I picked up in New York in November, which was crazy busy and we had to queue to get in the store it was NUTS!! 


I spent the evening at my friends house drinking coffee and chatting, the perfect evening for me when the man is at work!

Project 365 #046 - The Brit Awards


Day 046 - The Brit Awards - Tonight I have been glued to my sofa watching The Brits.  Wow, Adele blew me away, actually gave me goosebumps and brought a tear to my eye she has such a stunning voice. Not much else has happened today really, just the usual, work, walked the dog, had my tea, had a shower and sat on my arse all night watching the telly!

Project 365 #045 - Happy Valentines Day



Day 045 - Happy Valentines Day - Today I had the day off work and spent the day with Dylan being lovers in love.  We went for a lovely walk this afternoon with Maisy and then I cooked a 3 course meal (homemade butternut squash soup, steak with veg and cheesy mash, strawberry mousse), it was delicious.  Now its time to cosy up on the sofa with a film, I'm thinking The Notebook.

Project 365 #044 - Valentines Cookies



Day 044 - Valentines Cookies - Today I baked these for Valentines day.  They are based on a Linzer Cookies recipe that I found online and I have to be honest I wasn't very happy with how they turned out, as soon as I put them in the oven they just lost their shape.  I think next time I'll just use a traditional shortbread recipe.  I thought they looked really cute though sandwiched together with jam.

Project 365 #043 - Dirty Dog!



Day 043 - Dirty Dog - Look at Maisy's muddy paws and undercarriage! We took her to Tehidy Woods and she had the time of her life. She actually got a lot muddier after this photo was taken, so bad in fact that we had to bath her when we got home and actually cut the chunks of mud out of her hair. 


This is what she looked like afterwards.  Dylan said I was like one of those mothers that cuts their children's hair really bad haha, Im sorry Maisy!

Project 365 #042 - Home is Where The Heart is



Day 042 - Home is Where The Heart is - Day off work today, spent most of it at home with the boy as the weather was so crap (I don't like the rain).  We stayed in and watched the film 40 days and 40 nights and drank copious amounts of tea it was the perfect day off x

Project 365 #039 - Sleep Well



Day 039 - Sleep Well - Since Dylan has been in Oman I have had awful trouble sleeping at night and so a couple of weeks ago I bought this Sleep Well candle from TK Maxx to see if it made any difference, I've also started drinking chamomile and honey tea (a moment of calm by Twinings) before bed and it seemed to do the trick.  The candle smelt really lovely when I first took it out of the box but when its burning it actually smells of nothing? bizarre! Anyhoo, Dylan comes home tonight so I shouldn't need it anymore anyway.  So excited I could burst :-)

Jumper - Topshop
Skirt - Bershka
Tights - M&S
Black vest underneath (not seen) - H&M
Earrings and Ring - Accessorize
Bracelet - Pandora


What the Frock?


 Stripe jumper - H&M
Vest top and Leggings - Topshop

I've pretty much worn every stripey top that I own this last week, I must be in a stripes mood or something.  I live in my long vests from Topshop, I layer them with nearly everything I wear and need to buy some more as they are so versatile.  I have this one in grey, a white one and also a denim blue colour one, I think I need to purchase a black one too. I've also got a thing for mustard at the moment and I'm liking the look of this vest from Toppers too.

Project 365 #038 - Tripod



Day 038 -  Tripod - Today my dad gave me his tripod to borrow indefinitely.  I am so pleased as it means I can do more outfit posts without having to balance my camera on top of my bread bin haha!  I'm thinking I might spice it up when the weather warms up and take some outfit photos in my garden.  Happy Happy :-)

Project 365 #037 - Chanel Black Pearl



Day 037 - Chanel Black Pearl - Oh my goodness how gorgeous is this!  I was pleased as punch when my local Debenhams had this in stock (one of the perks of living in Cornwall I suppose?) This is the newest "must have" nail polish from Chanel.  I bought it yesterday and couldn't wait to paint my nails with it this evening.  At £17 they don't come cheap but sometimes its nice to treat yourself.


Today I took my niece to the cinema to watch Tangled.  I am a sucker for Disney and so I knew I would love it and low and behold I did, such a lovely movie.


Eurrrghh back to work tomorrow but on the plus side Dylan comes home on Tuesday......... I am super excited!!!

Project 365 #036 - Craft Day


Day 036 - Craft Day - Today I spent the afternoon with my sister crafting.  With her expert help I knocked these little beauties up for Valentines Day.  My sister is a really talented card maker but scrutinizes her work so much, I don't think she realizes quite how good she is.  She has all this amazing card making equipment (She has a Cricut, stamps, an array of card and lots of programmes on her computer) and I had so much fun making my card and tag.  The tag is filled with red M&Ms mmmmmmm!  

Here are some more pics of me making the card and tag.

Project 365 #035 - Chilling in my Comfies



Day 035 - Chilling in my Comfies - This is a typical outfit that I throw on when I come home from work when I just want to be all cushdy and comfy.  The top is from New Look and the sweatpants are from Hollister and I have to say they are the softest sweatpants in the world. Oh and I had to get my lovely scrabble ring from VIPXO in the picture hehe. I love Fridays :-)

Project 365 #034 - Valentines Prep



Day 034 - Valentines Prep - Today I've been thinking about what I'm going to do for Valentines day, as it is my turn this year.  I know I'm gonna cook up something nice and I'm pretty sure I will throw some sort of baking in there.  I bought these cute little bits from Tesco, I was thinking I would do some sort of mousse dessert in the ramekins.  My sister and I are also having a craft day this Saturday, she makes the most amazing cards and has all the gear so we are going to make our valentines cards and little tags and it's just a good excuse to spend some quality time with my big sis!!
