Excuse my super dry hands, no hand cream seems to work! They always look red raw! I wanted to get a close up of my ring!

I am off to a family party in Norfolk tonight, always like a good knees up! They are all nutters! My poor dad though has to do a 5 hour round trip tonight as we cant stay over. Would not want to be in his shoes!

I love love love this coat! I cannot believe this is the first time I have worn. I got it for my birthday back in January. It was only £25 in the next sale! Working there does have its perks! I managed to score the Kelly bag at a car boot last Sunday, Oh how I love the season has started again! I am gutted I missed out on two jumbles today because I have to work :( The dress is one of my new favourites too, brought it a few weeks ago. I dont think it looks Primark at all! I am so happy I can use heated rollers again! I had all my hair cut off last summer. It went from waist length to just above my shoulders. Whenever I tried to curl it, it just looked awful. Thankfully it has grown!

I feel like I am the walking dead. So so tired. The sale always kills me! I did a 1-9 on Friday, a 7-1.30 today and I did a 1-7 tomorrow. I also have work tomorrow. Ugh I am thinking of all the money though! I really do need to start saving for a holiday!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend whatever you may do!

I have recently got a formspring, so if anyone has any questions hit me up!


  1. Dress definitely doesn't look primark, you look lovely - especially with the leopard print coat. You have to wear it loads before it gets too warm again, gorgeous!

    Hope work and the sales eases up soon, just think of how dead retail usually is in the summer :)

    i have the same problem with my hands..kiehl's hand cream seems to work if you haven't tried that, although it's a little bit pricey!!

  7. looove the dress, it definitely looks more vintage then primark! do you find heated rollers quicker/easier to use then tongs or straigteners? I've never used them but i'm always looking for better ways to curl my hair! x
