Last night we were out partying, celebrating my Stepbrother's birthday. Had dinner at Patara, a Thai fine dining on Greek Street, and then went on to The Edge on Soho street/Soho Square. Had far too much Prosecco but had a fabulous time, it was so much fun :-) Husband and I got home at a reasonable time, even managed to catch the tube home. My shoes looked amazing but killed my feet and I know it isn't very classy but outside the tube I had to take them off :-S Here are the p...
apparently my next post is now, sitting in Costa at the airport waiting for my Husband ;-) the whole process of getting through passport controll and getting the bag was a lot quicker than he expected ;-)
I am sitting at the airport waiting for time to pass so I can be at home with my Husband. I feel the lack of sleep is catching up and I am dead tired! Got up early this morning to have coffee with a friend, finish packing and get to the bus to take me to the airport on time and I am now almost sleeping. I hope I can sleep a bit on the plane and be a little more awake and alert and not be a boring wife after a week away from Husband. Next time I blog will most probably be at home in London, tomor...
Good evening people,
How are we today? I have spent my day with my mum and my evening with my girls :-) So I am feeling good. I do really miss my Husband though so it feels good to go home tomorrow... This is what I did today

I have gone a little bit Vintage crazy and I have bought 11!!!! vintage dresses in two days :-) When I show them to you, you will understand why I just HAD to get them :-)
I am now at my mums and I still havent topped up my mobile internet so i cant upload any pictures. I had lunch with my mum at Coffeehouse by george in Alvik today and after lunch I walked my mum back to work and then I took the tube into town where I managed to go to Beyond Retro, try 15-20 dresses on and buy 4. Tomorrow I get paid and after lunch with my summer family, I am meeting my mum for a spot of shopping, going back to Beyond Retro, and some coffee. In the evening we are having dinner at...
Yes that is what I look like first thing in the morning, what I like to call the ugly truth ;-) I have run out of my Elizabeth Arden face cream and it is £25 dearer here in Stockholm and I refuse to more than 50% more, so I might have to get a cheaper, Nivea or something, until I get back home. My skin is so dry though it is uncomfortable and I get little spots :-(
Today's plan is t...
When I get back to London I think I will retire my winter coat and bring out my new spring coat I bought in Primark in the sale a while ago
What do you think? Is to time to retire winter and welcome spring? Tomorrow I am going to Beyond Retro on Drottninggatan to see if they have any dresses for me. I usually walk away with 4-5 dresses so I am feeling hopeful ;-) I hav...

I have arrived safe and sound in Sweden, where it is bloody cold and snow everywhere! I am staying at my dads this weekend and tonight my brother and his family is coming to see us here in the woods for a lovely three course dinner cooked by my dads wife with a little help from my dad :-) I don't have any pictures for you yet as my internet isn't working and I don't want to have to save my pictures on my dads computer and then on mine so when I have topped up my internet (it is...

Shirin so kindly lent me these fake knitted Uggs to keep me warm whilst being in Stockholm. Husband said they don't look as bad as I think and he doesn't like flat shoes ;-) I am on the train to the airport with a Starbucks in hand. Flying with Ryanair as it is cheap. Will blog as much as possible depends on what internet I get. See you later xoxo
I'm at the Royal Albert Hall watching Totem and it is really amazing!!!
I lack imagination today that is why the head line is so boring... Went to work wearing this Oasis dress
I had a nice long sleep in this morning and I am almost ready to go to work, last day for 10 days!! I snuck a few pictures in from last night, but only from when they were saying good bye as I was to much of a chicken to break the rules completely :-)
added a grey boyfriend cardigan and ballerinas from French Sole. Went to work, 9-2, then to John Lewis and got this

my new nail varnish, looks cute huh? ;-) xoxo
How are we today, did you do anything fun today? I worked 10-15 and for some reason everyone was getting on my nerves. Don't know what that means if anything! I went to the post office to send nephew's DS charger (which he left here at new years eve) then to Waitrose for tonight's roast dinner and then to Selfridge's for some shopping :-) It was approved by Husband. I asked if I could buy some non essential things and he agreed :-D This is what I got

I have just come back from a driving lesson that considering the amount of lessons I've had I had a really good lesson ;-) we are now in north London buying a new car and then we are off to the Cotswold and Bath for the weekend. Husband has booked a Michelin star restaurant for dinner... I didn't bring the laptop so I will see you later in the evening tomorrow. I do have the camera with me so hopefully ill take lots of pictures and show you when we get back home
Last night was a very eventful night for us and traumatising for Dodger! He got in a fight with another cat, which isn't that unusual, but this time it was a proper cat-fight that Husband had to stop as the other cat was too vicious and Dodger ended up hurt. We had to take him to the 24 hour vet hospital in Wanstead for a check up where he got pain relief and some antibiotics. He is still hiding under the bed upstairs the poor thing... He is better than last night but still r...
I have worn this before and a lot but I really like it so here it is again

Here is today's look. I took the pictures this morning before going to work
sitting here in the staffroom on my break and just thought of my man :-) and how amazing he is! I know this sounds soppy but I don't care. My Husband is THE bestest Husband in the entire world and I love him so much ;-) there I said it, deal with it :-D xoxo
I'm sitting in my armchair twisting my hair in my fingers reading Grazia and couldn't be happier :-) its nice with some alone time sometimes, don't you think?
I've been to the gym, did a 45 minute power walk which felt really good, I got swaety and everything ;-) also been to Waitrose to buy tonights healthy dinner and am now just about to leave Starbucks to go home and do the laundry :-) being a part time house wife isn't as glamorous as it might sound :-D see you later, will take new pictures of today's outfit as I now am wearing make up and I have straightened my hair. Just ...
Yes people, I am going to the gym today for the first time in a month!! December was THE busiest month ever and I only managed to drag my sorry ass there once!
new manicure, not new nail varnish...
Going to bed now
as promised, this is what I looked like earlier today
Since I am going to work out I haven't done my face yet so this is what I look like au naturalle :-)
Big shouldered blazer: M&S (bought yesterday) vest: Topshop, leggings: Uniqlo, shoes: New Look (which hurt so much I had to take them, don't know what I have done to it)
I had a little ...

at work in the staffroom. I was supposed to start at 12 but since we stayed half an hour longer last night I get to take that back now. Sitting here reading Vogue and drinking Starbucks :-) I have taken a picture of my outfit but didn't have time to upload it this morning so will do that later tonight... Hope you are enjoying this glorious Sunday and the sun... See you later
here are the jeans I bought on Thursday with a top/dress from H&M
Casual but classic, right? would add heels but I have injured my left foot somehow and I now have a slight limp to my walk :-(

tonights dinner will be Swedish pea soup, Husband has never tried it before :-) See you later xoxo
Yup, might have :-s bet you are very curious what's in the bag? ;-) I won't have the time or opportunity to show until tonight and even then I might be too tired :-( I got up at 7.30 this morning, we experienced some proper delays on the tube and finally put brother plus family on the train to Stansted Airport. I could bet my last penny that they all fell aasleep on the train, its a 45 minute journey to the airport. I the...
So far I have read Look and Cosmopolitan magazine and this is what I have found :-)
I have been a little absent both yesterday and Thursday, been so busy with life and really tired. Anyway, enough excuses, this is what I looked like yesterday after work when Shirin and I went shopping, mostly Shirin as I am a little bit broke now :-)

whilst I'm trying to get Little O to sleep I thought I'd take this time to show you my latest fragrance purchase: Love by Chloe. I always liked the bottle but never actually smelt it so I only bought a small 30ml bottle. Today I tried it on for the first time and I Love it ;-) so next time I travel ill buy a larger bottle and put it on my perfume table in my walk in ;-)

As I am sitting here, listening to my brother and his baby girl snooze on the sofa I realised I could use my time by making a list of things to do and see this year.
What is already on the list and has been for for a few years now is to try for a baby of our own :-) scary but so exciting! I turn 34 in September and I feel that this is my time, I am ready for the change. Me and Husband have been together for 11 years in May and married for 8 also in May.
