Bills - A restaurant review

A good few weeks ago now I took my mum along to Singin' In The Rain - amazing show! - and out for dinner as a very late Christmas present. After visiting Bills in Covent Graden with Hannah on my birthday night, I knew it would be right up my mums street. Full of traditional English food, it's the perfect place to fill up your rumbling tummies. The portions are a fair size which is always a plus - nothing like going out for a nice meal and having to visit Macdonalds on the way home because you're still hungry. Hope it's not only me that does that sometimes! With every set of table and chairs different and cute little tealights smothering the tables, it feels like you're in someone's house. It's lovely and cosy with friendly staff. Our waiter suggested the doughnuts in the top picture and let me tell you, they went down a treat! If something really does tickle your fancy, there's always the possibility of taking it home with you as everything you sample can be brought. Cool huh?

Have you ever been to Bills?

You can't feel anything that your heart don't want to feel

Camo jacket - Topshop
Grey oversize t-shirt - Asos
Demin boyfriend fit jeans - New Look
White plimsols - Vans

This isn't the most flattering outfit I've ever worn but it's certainly one of the most comfortable ones. I brought these jeans after reading far too many American blogs. They seem to look so effortless wearing just jeans and a t-shirt with heels. I don't think i'm quite pulling it off but might try them out again with a snazzier t-shirt and a pair of heeled sandals. Just a shame we've not got the weather for it yet!

I wore this over the weekend for a lovely day of father daughter bonding while my mother abandoned us. My dad and I took a trip to the local greasy spoon for some much needed fuel before heading out for a little road trip to an antiques place. There was rows and rows of tiny little shacks and barns filled to the brim with nick naks. My idea of heaven! It was fun to find stuff i've already got at home to see how much it was worth. Nothings more satisfying than seeing something you paid pennies for at a bootsale selling for £25. I'm getting quite a good eye it seems. With it being so close to payday I didn't buy a single thing, but I now know what to keep my beady eye out for!

How did you spend your weekend?


New Look High Summer '13

A few weeks ago I was very kindly invited along to the New Look summer press day to have a sneaky peak at some pretty clothes. Boy do I want summer to hurry now! I was very pleased to see midi dresses were plentiful. I especially loved the aztec patterned one pictured here. Body con seems to be popular which means maybe I should invest in a better pair of spanx eh? Lots of neon acceessories also made an appearance - I think I can make room for a snazzy bag in my collection. Nothing like bright colours to feel like summer has arrived! I'm going to keep my beady eye out for the beautiful orange necklace. It'll look perfect against a white tee and boyfriend jeans. Statement necklaces always seem to make an outfit in my opinion. More pictures can be seen on my facebook page. You'll be in for a treat!
