Yet again i'm a walking advertisement for Primark.

Losing 6lb means that i'm slowly gaining my confidence back and things in my wardrobe are starting to fit better. Hence why I decided to finally pull the tags of this skirt and blouse after buying them way back in October. Who said I have too many clothes? This leather skirt is one of my favourite things in my wardrobe but I never know the right occasion to wear it. It's too long for a proper night out, too risque for work and too leather to wear everyday in my lovely ugg boots and see though leggings town. So i've decided to brave it during a dinner at Zizzis and cocktails in the town next door. What could be a more perfect occasion?

Like I said I went out tonight for dinner, sadly had to stick with pasta as pizza is too many proproints boo hiss. But i'd rather have a few glasses of wine beens I haven't been out in three weeks. ANYWHERE! Being a pauper is not fun. But it was payday yesterday so I deserve to make the most of it. It was seeing all my favourite people as we haven't had a chance to all get together since my birthday outing at the end of last month. Being a grown up really is pants.

Have you got anything planned for the weekend?
