Going to Ealing this morning
and this is what I look like
Having coffee with Karen and Jayden. Happy birthday to my cousin Patrick :-)
This evening's look
Blouse: Primark, skirt: Topshop, shoes: New Look (old), ring: Swarovski. Going out to dinner with The P's
6 DVD's :-) Husband goes away on the 16th for a whole week and I have ordered some movies to keep me company. They are all pretty old and some are favourites from when I was younger and some I just haven't seen.
I loved this movie when I was growning up, I wanted to be Mary Stuart Masterson as I would then get to kiss Eric Stoltz :-)
And in this one I wanted to be Sarah Jessica Parker. I have had a healthy obsession with her for a long time :-)
I've never seen the Mannequin but as it made Kim Cattrall famous I think it is a must see movie when Husband is away.
And there is never a better time for costume dramas and fashion movies than when I have the house to myself and sure Shirin will join me for a few of these movie nights :-) All six DVD's came to under £20 on Amazon...
Happy Birthday, Jayden
Today is a very special day, it is my godson Jayden's 2nd birthday :-) He is the cutest and cheeckiest little thing around. Happy birthday little boy :-) and I'll see you tomorrow with your presents!!
Today and yesterday
I am off to work soon, just having my breakfast smoothie as usual. We went to Galipoli restaurant last night, it is a Turkish/Lebanese restaurant on Upper Street, Angel and it is very cosy and the food is lovely :-) This is what I wore
I might not wear these heels as they are not that comfortable...
I got home from work about an hour ago and have been pigging out ever since! Was supposed to do laundry and tidy the house a little but now I am so tired I think I mght have a nap. When I got home this vintage looking Casio watch was waiting for me
I really like it! Tonight we are going out to dinner with Lana and Pedja and I will show you the outfit later. For now this is what I look like as I am drinking my camomille tea
New metallic red nail varnish from O.P.I (bad picture)
To continue the pigging out there is a whole plate of baklava waiting fir me but I might have to leave it for after my nap. On Saturday, I booked the hotel for Paris in May, tickets to Sweden for my niece's 1st birthday party in June and a weeks holiday for me in Stockholm in July. We are also planning to go to Italy in August. THis summer is turning out to be superbusy! Going to sleep now before I fall alseep blogging.
No one does it like Chanel does it :-)
Today at the Greenwich market and park
Started with a cocoa cappuccino and a apple and cinnamon muffin
Shirin is wondering how the hell does this camera work :-)
bought a name bracelet each at the market
first ice cream of the year :-) it was yummy!!
The London skyline seen from the Greenwich Observatory
I carry my very own wind machine and like Tyra would say: Looking fierce ;-)
Like I said before, I love when Spring arrives and as there were plenty of flowers I felt I had to capture them with my camera.
Have a good evening
To the market
We are off to the market and the time line in Greenwich with our cameras and hopefully there will be no rain! The look for today is Chanel/Converse, a little it of glamour and alot of comfort :-)
I'll wear a coat on top of the jacket as I get cold easily. For those few who were following Nellie's walk in, bad news I have stopped that blog as I got bored with it, so now you are just gona have to follow this one as I might upload outfits of the day when I feel like it. I don't blog as much as I used to as I am feeling slightly bored with it and don't really see the point, but I will not stop, just cut down :-) Blog when I have something to say...
and welcome Spring! Oh how I have missed you!!!! Spring is my favourite season of the year, it's when everything is new and the flowers are blossoming and people are generally happier as the they now know summer is on it's way.
Husband is off playing golf with the boys and I still haven't decided if I should leave the house or not today. THe house does need tidying and I need to do the laundry and unpack after Mexico but I don't know if can be bothered :-S This is what I look like at the moment though
I need a shower and some pampering, should paint my nails as I bought three new colours from O.P.I yesterday
I also bought these things this week, mostly skincare
I use this as my nightmoisturiser
Kiehls always works on my super sensitive skin, if I have been a bad girl or havent had the money to buy Kiels I always get spots and irritated pores, I use Kiehls and they go away almost immediately. My day cream is by Elizabeth Arden and is fantastic for me, givesw me all day moisture and glow.
At work I bought these three things for myself :-)
It's a brooch and looks much better "live" :-)
and in Marc by Marc Jacobs I bought this hand bag as a cute alternative to my Chanel. I have been looking at it for months and I was lucky it was still in stock
the chain is really long even on me adn when I need two hands free I can wear it across my body. The Chanelchain is too short for that...
Shirin and I have just decided to get dressed and go to Greenwich, so need to bid you farewell for now and get into the shower.
Hope you have a fabulous Sunday and first day of Spring, don't forget to layer up as it is not as warm as it might look ;-)
just wanted to let you know that I am alive :-) been working for a few days and am not feeling too well, stomach bug. We went out for dinner, Zizzi, and then met some friends in Westbourne Park in West London. We didn't stay for very long as we were both tired and everyone was sitting outside and it was not warm and everyone smokes but us, you know what I mean. I got an unexpected bonus from work with this salary so I have been shopping :-) I am off tomorrow and after I have cleaned the house I will upload pictures of what I have purchased.
Have a fabulous evening...xoxo
My new shoes
and they are not heels :-)
going to wear them tomorrow on my day off :-)
Perfect Mother's day present and more
On the 3rd of April it is Mother's day here in Britain and at work today I had fragrance training and after the training I was given a full size sample of Swarovski's new perfume. It is alread on sale exclusively in Selfridge's but will be launched in store at the end of the month. It is made in collaboration with Clarins and the topnote is Lychee, middle note tuberose and base note is pink pepper. It is a perfect present for Mother's day as it is both glamorous and stylish.
I know my mum would love it :-D
After work Shirin met me and we went to Pret a manger for some lunch and to Starbucks where I tried their new cocoa cappucino adn it was quiet nice, like a mocha but more chocolate. Then we went to Selfridge's where I bought Vogue UK and Vogue US
as well as Glamour UK and in this issue you a free Clinique product and mine was the lipstick, which after I tried it on, I really like :-)
In Selfride's we went to the Shoe galleries on the second floor, where I tried on some Louboutins I couldn't stand in and went to Prada and found some lovely little kitten heels!
When we were in Mexico this little bracelet arrived from Asos, I ordered three, one for Shirin and two for me :-)
That is it for now. Actually I did buy something expensive today but am not going to show you yet :-)
I just ordered these so I can match my niece Olivia and she look really cool in hers (which she might actual have grown out of by now, just means I can buy a new pair for her 1st birthday in June)
Nah, not going to look this cool or cute but at least we will matching ;-)
Mexico in pictures
I am back! Did you miss me? Here are some pictures from the last two weeks in Mexico. I am too tired to write any comments as we only got back this morning and I had a very small nap and Husband is already back at work! Hope you like them...
That is it :-) We had a lovely time but as the flights there and back are so long I think it will be a while before we fly off so far away again...
well that's not completely true, we have a laptop but not much iternet only at the lounge so I won't be doing much blogging for two weeks. Might be good for me as well, take a holiday from blogging ;-) we are now sitting at a airport lounge, as our flight is delayed... See you in two weeks and can y'all make sure spring has arrived by time we are back, please? :-D Xoxo
We are off to Mexico for two weeks in the morning!! I am trying to plan all my outfits and I have realised that I need a bigger bag, so I am going to borrow Shirin's bag as last time she went to Stockholm she brought 23kg of luggage :-) My limit is 20 but at least it will fit in her bag. So I have many many outfits to pack adn I haven't even started yet! I haven't decided if the laptop is ccoming with so we will see how the blog will cope with or without love for 14 days.
This is what I looked like today (for those who haven't checked out www.nellieswalkin.blogg.se)
I am trying to be clever and show you my nails and my ring but as you can see it didn't work
Much better, right? Essie Mint Candy Apple and Marc Jacobs Lola solid perfume ring... We are leaving at 6am so I have to start packing now, eat something adn then go to bed so that I wake up impossibly refreshed and gorgeous looking ;-)
Might see you or not, in any case have a fabulous two weeks and I'll upload pictures when I come back if the laptop stays at home.
Today is Jon Bon Jovi's 49th birthday!! Happy Birthday :-)
