I was very kindly given a gift voucher for attending the Clothing at Tesco press day. I was going to save it and splurge it on the beautiful lace dress but as what is always the case with money and vouchers, they burn a hole in my pocket. But I am very pleased with what I have chosen, will blog about the rest in a few posts time!

I was debating about getting another aztec cardigan, did I really need two? I came to the conclusion that yes I did! This one is more black and as a result I feel like it will go with a lot more things. For some reason I expected it to be much longer so was rather disappointed with the length but its grown on me. It is really cosy which is the key ingredient in knitwear for me. I like to feel like I am wrapped in a blanket. My boyfriend absolutely hates this hat, so much so he refuses to go out with me in it. Obviously this makes me wear it more. Going to love seeing his face tonight at the station ha!

Off to see Kasabian tonight which I am rather excited about. Should be quite good as I think we have managed to get standing tickets, Right in the thick of the action! Hopefully my feet won't get too brusied.

I have a very busy weekend ahead including the boys Christmas party tomorrow, staying overnight in the fancy hotel for the Christmas do and then a 21st Birthday party on the Saturday. I shall be all worn out by the time Christmas comes along!

Is everyone getting into the Christmas spirit? Not long now!

On a side note: Gosh my feet are the same colour as the floor. Stay off the fake tan Sophie!
