Long time no speak! I know I'm always saying this but the last few months have been so hectic; it feels as though life has hit the fast forward button and I am really hoping it slows down some time soon just so I can breathe! I do have ideas for posts bouncing around my head; it's just tricky finding the time to sit down and put something together at the moment. Fingers crossed that normality will resume very soon.
In an attempt to be a better blogger and, you know, actually blog, I stuffed my camera in my bag on Sunday as we went out to celebrate Jon's birthday. Without going into much detail we have been spending a lot of time in and near London Bridge hospital recently so I managed to cajole the birthday boy into taking a couple of snaps near the river for me. So, this is what I wore...
I was feeling a bit of a rose gold/ dusky pink theme, mainly due to the top I dug out from my wardrobe (I always find forgetting to do laundry helps me be a little more inventive when putting outfits together). This is an old one from Dorothy Perkins and I had forgotten how much I love the rose gold beading on the front. I paired it with my new maxi skirt from New Look - it's such a soft, comfortable jersey material and I am quite literally obsessed with it. Seconds before dashing out the door I added some statement earrings by Fiorelli and a fab new chain necklace I found in H&M, which I really think completes the outfit!
As a celebration was on the cards we visited Café Rouge in Hays Galleria for a quick bite to eat - I love their moules marinières so much I managed to chomp my way through this enormous tureen in about five minutes! We decided to forgo dessert and have a traditional birthday Starbucks instead - Mocha Coconut for me and Cookie Crumble for Jon. Yum!
Last week I saw online that there were all manner of amazing "book benches" popping up over London and I was so pleased to spot this Gruffalo themed one! I tried to convince Jon to sit on it for a birthday portrait but alas, he refused. I don't think he has developed the mentality of a blogger just yet...I was all set to plonk myself on it for an impromptu shoot but it was soon swarmed by pre-schoolers so I had to make a hasty getaway. I'm determined to hunt down more now!
Hope you're all having a good week, I have some more beauty bits in the pipeline that I hope to post by the weekend - including a cheeky haul...
