I'm living a childhood fantasy in these skinny trousers. I remember watching Olivia Newton John in Grease and complety being in awe of Sandy. I was over the moon when my mum came home with an amazing pair of faux leather trousers for me. Sandy who? So when I spotted these beauties in Next, I just had to have them. I still don't feel 100% confident in them but hey ho fake it until you've got it right? I always think a red lip looks so glam so had to snap this shade up when I saw it in boots - Apocalips seems to be doing the rounds on all the blog.

I'm treking all the way to Notting Hill tonight  - it better be worth the trip! - to see some of my favourite bloggers for a spot of dinner at the Electric Diner. As always I'm sure it'll be a lovely evening putting blogging to rights and stuffing our faces. Always the best types of nights out.

Hope you all have a lovely evening whatever you'll be doing!
