Christmas Party Season Dresses

Are you panicking over  your party dress for the Christmas do? I am! I struggle every year to find something I like as I usually don't want to spend too much but like to treat myself to something new. I've been looking online because Brighton shopping is pretty stressful from now until the end of the January sales. It's much easier to buy from my laptop. I've picked out my favourites - just a note about my style.... I LOVE purple, I have purple everything, I really love vintage but worry that it makes me look frumpy and I'm rather partial to sparkly things too.

My absolute favourite is a splash out at £175!
It's Phillip Lim from Burnt Out Opulent

ASOS Accessories on My Christmas List

Just doing a spot of internet window shopping and found this wonderful, amazing , gorgeous, collar necklace from ASOS . At £35 it's not one I could treat myself to on a whim, it'll have to go on the list. Might leave this post open for AB to read when he's home from work.. hint hint.

My Starting week at Slimming World

Ok I'm not going to be ashamed of it any more, after all, you've all seen the Zagorra hot pants review and I know I'm not alone in my struggle as this is one of my most viewed posts! The thing is, I never, ever thought I would, but I have joined Slimming World.
I completed my first week yesterday, and lost weight despite going to 3 parties at the weekend which involved cake and booze. I have also just polished off a Crunchie while I finish off some writing work. This has to be the best diet I've ever tried. I have no parties this week and have been exercising so hope to have an even better result on Tuesday. I'll let you know. I'm still a bit embarrassed about going but I'm sure as I get to know everyone that will wear off. In the meantime, have a look at some of their tasty recipes on the website and see what the diet plan's all about, and why I can still eat cake :-)

Best of British Interiors and My goodness I miss my blog!


I'm back, but just for a short stop I'm sad to say! I miss my blog so much, but I don't have so much time to keep it up at the moment. There are some many wonderful tea party and vintage type things that I have wanted to write about. I've also found a great new source of fashion inspiration but I've had to sit on my hands and do real work this past 6 weeks instead of blogging. I knew it had been a long time,  but I didn't realise it had been THAT LONG!!!

I've found a picture of my perfect sofa, if I had a massive house with a "den" and a "lounge" then I would have a Chesterfield without a doubt. I also love Union Jack accessories, but they just don't fit in with my purple theme so just have to admire them from afar. Do you have Union Jack accesories in your lounge or bedroom? I'd love to know the colours that you match them with that work well.
