Also known as my walk-in wardrobe :-) The first two pictures are the "before" pictures. I have a really ugly wardrobe inside the room which you can see below
I have removed some of the doors from the wardrobe (one is still stuck, I need Husbands strong arms...
I couldn't decide which colour to paint my nails so I sort of did both. Would have painted my toes as well but I can't reach them at the moment :-D
Just don't look at my cuticles, I haven't put any handcream on yet as I am doing laundry at the same time. It...
We have been out to dinner with the P's. Had a table booked at Asia de Cuba. Will update properly tomorrow as Husband is borrowing my laptop tonight. Hope you all have a good night.
I love these items, in no particular order, they would all look fabulous with the pleated skirts I already have and the Warehose coat I bought in Exeter at the weekend :-) They are all a mix from the high street, from Topshop, New Look and Warehouse....Läs mer »
This bank holiday weekend we drove to Devon to our friends Mark and Terry. As they live in the countryside, they have lots of animals, it was a perfect occassion to bring out the camera and take lots of pictures. So if you are not into animals this post won't be that interesting to you, I'm afraid.

No, no, no!! Is the answer :-) I got two out of three Chanel colours today at John Lewis. They and everyone else has sold out of the Peridot one. Might see if they have it in Devon, though I doubt it very much :-sLäs mer »
Feeling a bit rebellious and autumn-y in this grey and cloudy weather. I have accepted that autumn is here and it makes me happy :-) Don't like the heat in the summer, prefer the cosyness of September and October.
I am wearing a new top by Warehouse from their current season, collar necklace by ASOS, skull scarf: Alexander McQueen andskirt by Primark.Läs mer »
In a powdered pink and jet black kind of way :-) The dress is new and was purchased yesterday in H&M on Oxford Street. Blazer and Mary-Jane's are PrimarkLäs mer »
Here is a little treat for you all, some might like, some might not :-)
Last night we had a fabulous dinner with the P's at Asia de Cuba on St Martin's Lane. I felt like it was dress up time so I pulled out the Louboutins and the smokey eye make up and everything inbetween :-)
Dress and blazer: H&M, lace slip: Marks&Spencers
The cleaner is here for the first time and hopefully she'll come back on a weekly or fortnightly basis. My plan for the day is to sort out my walk-in. There is wardrobe within my walk-in which houses my Husbands old things that he doesn't use anymore. My plan is to get rid of his stuff and hang my vintage dresses on the rail and to fold my t-shirts and vests on the shelves to give me more space on the big clothesrails, as they are too full for me to see any of my clothes. I also want to put...
I have a baby mama to be date today at 10.30 and as the sun is shining I thought I'd reflect the sunny weather with a summer-y outfit...

I'm sitting in the livingroom and it's ten to two and I can't sleep :-( Have had heartburn most of the night. Taken Rennie which makes me thirsty and the sparkling water gives me heartburn so have now gotten up to get tapwater, hopefully it will help. Dodger has also decided to sleep next to me, ON my pillow. I'm telling you that is one weird cat :-) Just to add to it, I have twitches in my legs which is annoying. They don't hurt and it's not cramp, just annoying. Going to be a bad, bad night!

I took the Central Line all the way to Ealing Broadway yesterday where I spent a lovely few hours with Karen (without the kids). Sat in Starbucks for a few hours catching up on life and then went shopping in New Look and Primark.
I've been wanting some colourful jeans for a long time and found these two in Primark for £12 each. They come in all sorts of colours but I preferred the pink and purple. The are a little too big around the belly but as they come with a scarf-belt I can...

I love this picture of Liza Minelli! The attitude in her face, the pose and the outfit... From the latest issue of LOVE magazine
Let's start with fika. Fika means to have coffee in Swedish. It is the most important word for us Swedes as it means so much to us. Fika isn't just sitting down having a coffee. it's all about what you have with your coffee and who you have it with. You can go to a cafe or sit at home, you can bake your fika bread or buy it, the important thing is that it is well thought out and that you've made an effort :-) So if you only learn one word in Swedish make sure it is Fika :-D
On Monday last week, I was admitted to hospital for a 24 hour observation. In the end there waas nothing to worry about, thought I was bleeding but I wasn't :-) But as it happened two days in a row they kept me over night to run some tests to make sure all was ok. I arrived in triage at around 2pm and was up on the ward at around 5pm. Husband met me there and then went to the shops to stock up on things I needed. As I didn't know how long he would be I had to eat the hospital food and it ta...

Today's look is very casual for one reason only. Husband was flying me to Alderney, a island in the English Channel, and I had to be comfortable. He was having a flying lesson and thought it would be fun if we went together with his instructor of course :-) We left our house at 8.30 (I drove) and got home (I drove) 20 minutes ago. Went to Alderley, had lunch, went for a walk and flew back. It was really cool, but I have no energy left over for anything now, am supertired!!
The collars I ordered from ASOS last week arrived today. I have yet to try them on and style them the way I imagine them looking in my head. As soon as I do, I will photograph it and show you.
Today I am wearing next seasons star motif as seen here at the A/W11 Dolce&Gabbana show. Picture borrowed from http://www.fashionista.com
My dress is from Primark and I bought I think 5 years ago when the stars were in and Chanel's collection was all about the stars. See it is worth saving your clothes for future seasons as almo...
I have a new car!!!! Almost :-) just need to pick it up tomorrow morning...
We picke dup my new car this morning. Took the tube to Ealing Broadway where Mr P picked us up and drove us to the carsalesshop. I then drove us, with Husbands guidance, to Greenwich via a very traffic jammed central London :-) Nerveracking but very good experience. Husband said he was almost falling asleep that's how comfortable he was with my driving. I just need to practice a little bit more before I go out on my own...Läs mer »
That is a picture of a different one but mine looks the same :-) It's a 2008 Volkswagen Polo in silver and tomorrow I will drive it all the way from Hounslow to our house. Husband will be in the car with me, but as a passenger for the very first time :-D
After we put a deposit ont he car we went ...
Today is the first day of this week where I am not going anywhere! Don't have a single date or plan, just to stay at home and wait for the new vacuumcleaner that is supposed to be delivered today sometime. Once it is here I will hoover like never before :-) It is so needed in this house. I like cleaning but HATE hoovering so I am hoping that I will like it a little bit more with this new upright Dyson.
This weekend we are looking for a new car for me :-) A new, old one as it wil...
