When she wakes up in the morning she writes down all of her dreams

Cream skater dress: H&M
Heart patterned tights: Primark
Black faux suede wedges: New Look
Leopard print faux fur coat: Next
Gold ball necklace: Topshop
Gold round wire earrings: Topshop
Assorted gold bangles: Topshop, Acessorize and Primark
Red plastic watch: Toywatch

Yes yes I know I have worn this dress in my last proper outfit post but I am a pauper and don't have any money to buy any clothes. Plus everyone wears an outfit more than once right? Soz for the awful facial expression in the first picture, my camera is complete poop and it hates taking more than one picture.

I have not had this coat off my back since last Tuesday, it is perfect for winter. It has really gone cold recently. I also feel a bit like Bet Lynch in it which can only be a good thing as she rocked the old animal print back in the day. So pleased to be busting out my patterned tights, shamefully found about 7 new pairs in my drawers. Too pretty to be kept hidden away!

Off out for the first time in four Fridays, just a shame it is only to the local pub for some karoke. Quite a few people are work are leaving as they are opening up a Next Home store in town so they are transfering over. For £3 we get a the back room of a pub, as much buffet as we can eat and the chance to laugh at colleagues destroying their favourite songs. What more do you want from a night out eh? I have also been giving the weekend off work. Score! Going to try and source out some indoor bootsales or jumbles to visit. Seeing Foster the People Sunday night, guess I actually need to listen to a few of their songs. I only booked a ticket for a night out!

If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I have had some good news. I will working full time back in London as from the week after next. I have been offered a two month internship in Hoxton with the possibility that it will be made into a more permament position is all goes well! Fingers crossed that I impress eh? I cannot wait to be back in the city and writing again!

What have all you lovelies got planned for weekend?

An evening with Motel and Glossybox

As I mentioned on Sunday I was very lucky to be invited to the Motel/Glossybox bloggers evening to showcase the company's fantastic Christmas collection. Boy do Motel know how to throw a party! It was amazing! I took advantage, as you do, of the cocktails, popcorn and candy floss as well as having a cheeky cupcake or two! I have honestly never seen so many bloggers all in once place. It was so nice to have people to talk to about blogging, I usually get from my friends "huh you take pictures of yourself? Why?"

To be honest I had never shopped in Motel because I just assumed that it was just bodycon and I have never been a fan of trying to squeeze myself into a tight dress. How wrong was it? They sell everything from coloured jeans, leopard print blouses and lace shorts. I had a lot of trouble chosing an item to take home with me so put down two, very excited to see what one I am to be given!

I finally met the lovely ladies who I pester on twitter so much and thus then started to pester them in real life too. Sarah, Rachel, Charlotte, Hannah and Eloise all made me feel so welcome and not so much of a loon when I started to stalk them! I also met up again with Steph and Dani but unfortunately didn't get to talk them as much as I would have like! I met some new ladies such as Rebecca and Sarah. I am so sorry if I didn't get the chance to say boy or hello to anyone, I felt a bit overwhelmed and just didn't know who to talk to. I just keep floating all over the place! I am also sorry if I have missed you off my list, I lost track of just how many people I spoke it!

Thank you so so much for Motel and Glossybox for throwing such a fantastic shindig and to Selina for inviting me :)

I was very kindly given permission to use the photos by the Glossybox team and Steph. I haven't included any pictures of my mug as I am in dire need of a fringe cut. I look like cousin It and you would not have been able to see my face anyway :)

A snapshot #3

001. After a rubbish day at work my boyfriend was waiting for me at home with this gorgeous bunch of flowers. What made it even the more lovely was the fact I wasn't due to see him that night because he was off out with his football friends. He rushed home on his way to Camden, he's a sweetheart eh?

002. After constant moaning about not losing any weight, to be honest I haven't been putting as much effort in as I can. I have decided the make the most of my Jazzacise membership and have been four times this week. Hopefully this will be the sign of things to come!.

003. London town. I spent quite a few days in London this week which is always a pleasure. I just wish I was back working full time in the city, I miss it.

004 - 005. One of the reasons I went to London was to attend the Motel/Glossybox blogger event. I was so shocked when the invite came through my inbox but oh so happy. I had such an amazing time meeting all my favourite bloggers. Got a post dedicated to this coming up soon!
