Just a quick little blogpost today to share a few things I picked up last week.

 Chino's from Next for Fletcher - He already has a blue pair but I couldn't resist this gorgeous berry colour

Maybelline The falsies flared mascara - I ran out of my usual Maxfactor Masterpiece Max (which I swear by) and thought I'd try something different.  This is really great, I like the bendy wand and it coats the lashes nicely but..............I will be going back to Maxfactor once I've used this up.

Maybelline colour tattoo in 35- On and On Bronze - Love this stuff and have been using it everyday since I got it.  I love how it doesn't budge from your eyelid for the whole day and it also doesn't build up in the crease like a lot of other cream shadows do.  A big thumbs up.

Natural Collection shadow in Midnight- I bought this for filling in my eyebrows it's a perfect grey/black shade and at £1.79 I can't complain.

Maybelline Polish in Porcelain Pink - This is a perfect baby pink and 2 coats gives it a perfect finish.  Really pleased with this.

I want to touch on the subject of household pets today.  There is so much to consider when buying a pet, it's a massive commitment and is not to be taken lightly.  Maisy is my West Highland White Terrier and she turns 6 this year {I can't believe she is getting so old now}.  With any animal it's so important to have pet insurance more-so now that she is "getting on a bit".  We got Maisy insured the day we brought her home and so far we've never had to use it but there will more than likely come a time when we will need it and I would hate to not be able to afford the vets fees.

In addition to having Maisy insured we also got her chipped and then got her neutered because we never had any plans to breed her.  She has yearly booster jabs, regular worming and flea drops, she wears her name on  her collar with our telephone number on it and every 8-10 weeks she gets a wash and cut at the groomers.  Throw in some walks, treats and toys and we have ourselves a happy hound.  We also have a dog flap at our back door so she is free to run around the garden as she pleases.

Westies are renowned for having skin conditions and for this reason we have always fed her hypoallergenic kibble {James Wellbeloved Lamb and Rice is her favourite} and we are yet to see any skin complaints.  Maisy sleeps in our kitchen on an orthopaedic bed {purely because there is no fluff in it for her to pull out}.

So there you have it, that's our little story about Maisy.  There's a lot to think about when buying a dog but its totally worth it for all the love you get back :-)

simplicity in stripes

I love the simplicity of stripes.  A lot of my wardrobe is taken up with stripy garments the majority of it being tops.  Today was a bit of a miserable day weather-wise so I teamed my stripy top with some berry skinny jeans to inject a bit of colour.  I'm hoping for some sun again soon so that I can take another trip to the beach and have a dip in the sea or at least wear a skirt and flip flops.
