Snow?! In March?! What is the world coming too? I am not happy about this at all. Quite a simple outfit really to try and combat the cold weather. I thought i'd brighten up a all black outfit with red accents and I really like the way it's turned out. It's nothing groundbreaking but perfect for lounging about doing odd bits and bobs. These boots were an absolute bargain in the January sales at only £15 and have fast became my favourite boots. I really should invest in more ankle boots if this a sign of winter to come. Anything else think winter has lasted forever this year?

I'm off out to a jumble sale this afternoon to try and score some goodies. Despite being beaten up by the local grannies I actually perfer them to bootsales. Everything is so cheap and they are full of vintage bric and brac as it tends to be the older generantion donating. Fingers crossed all the dealers don't nab the best things! I also managed to lose 2lbs at Weightwatchers this week which has made me estatic! I've now lost 5lbs in three week taking my weight loss down to a stone. It has taken me well over a year but losing weight can get boring extremely quickly if you have a social life. In my eyes life's too short to be couning calories all day every day - sometimes that burger is just too good to turn down.

I'm also on Bloglovin just in case you wanted to follow after all this hoo-ha about Google Reader!

What have you got planned for the weekend?
