There is something wrong with this picture!!
Weather for London, UK
The weather is gorgeous, sun and blue skies but it is too hot for me :-( Really not enjoying it at all!! Hopefully others are enjoying :-)
Dress and top: Primark, necklace: Accessorize, bracelet and earrings: Tiffany&Co, watch: Links of London
I have a midwife appointment today and then I'll concentrate on the laundry that seems to be piling up...
Dodger, perhaps the laziest cat in the world? He sure is cute though :-D
Before I left to have a coffee with Keris, I did my own little photo shoot in the hallway. I decided yesterday that I want to remember what I looked like pregnant in a few years time. As it was a naked shoot, only wore my Louboutins and my Tiffany earrings and bracelet, this picture below is the only one I am willing to show you. As you can see, you can't really see anything but the bump :-) The other pictures are for me and my Husband to look at when we are grey and old :-D
Bows and Ruffles
Blazer and dress: H&M, headband: New Look, sandals: Primark...
It looks like it is very hot outside so I doubt I'll be wearing the blazer much today, might not even bring it :-s Must remember to drink a lot of water today, I get so hot quickly now...
Yesterday in pictures
Yesterday I went to Bond Street tube station to mee tup with Shirin and do some shopping. I have 29 days left officially of the pregnancy so I think it was one of the last trips into town for me. Just have to buy Husbands birthday present next week and meet Keris for a coffee today and then I will resort to Stratford or internet shopping :-)
We met up in Starbucks but didnt stay there, went to Marc by Marc Jacobs where I bought a keyring, necklace, bracelet and a t-shirt
As I got attitude from the sales advisor (I'm obviously not cool enough to shop there) I need a drink ad since it was hot outside Shirin got me a Iced Latte
Then off to New Look where I got two blouses and a hairband. Shirin got the coolest leather trousers!! Don't know if she will show them on her blog...
After New Look we went to John Lewis to close the baby gift list and buy the remaining items on the list and I also needed to go to the foodhall to buy dinner. I made Pyttipanna (fry up) with fried eggs and beetroot
Grazia was waiting for me when I got home so after dinner I had look through it whilst drinking my
Just before bed I took pictures of my purchases, with my BlackBerry, as I couldn't be bothered to go down stairs for the G11 camera.
The very last thing I did was to paint my nails. This time I used Revlon. I used two different nailvarnished, one is matte an I can't remeber the name of it and the top coat is Facets of Fuchsia
Just had my breakfast, will rest a bit and then take pictures of today's outfit :-)
been too tired to blog about today's shopping. pigged out on some posh chocolate earlier this evening and have watched britain and irelands next top model the final. i am now ready for bed. promise ill show you what i bought tomorrow :-) xoxo
cleaner is gone and I am ready to leave the house. Don't know what to buy today, the two cute blouses I have seen or shoes (haven't found any yet though) I odn't need any of them. When I say shoes I mean heels of course. I do need flats but they are so boring to buy!! Anyway, will show you later what I'll get from New Look and then Marc by Marc Jacobs where I think I might get a perfume, hmmmm...
This is what I look like today, a lacey take on a ballerina look, what do you say?
Pleated dress and patent brogues: Primark
Blazer: H&M, lace slip: M&S, brooch: Vintage, jewellery and watch: Links of London and Tiffany&Co. Can't remeber where the headband is from though, bag: Louis Vuitton, birthday present from Husband :-)
See ya later
Hope you all slept well. I did, considering I usually have to get up to go to the loo about three times a night, only got up twice :-) The reason I am up this early is the cleaner is here. I am leaving the house at about 1pm to meet up with Shirin to spend my gift cards at New Look and Marc Jacobs :-D Will upload a outfit of the day before I go...
Hope you have a good one
Monogram and Converse
Have been to the vet with Dodger, who skin allergy is getting better but hasn't yet healed. Poor cat hates going in to his box and meows all the way there :-( He was even shaved a little today and when I tried to get him to come inside just now, he refused. Doesn't trust me anymore I guess, poor baby :-(
Have also been to Belgique in Wanstead for a coffee with the girls, always a pleasure to see them even if it sometimes is a shorty...
I wore: black dress from Primark, with a belt and handbag from Louis Vuitton and shoes by Converse
Silver pearl bracelet, XOXO ring and earrings: Tiffany&Co, cocktail ring, watch and skull bracelet: Links of London
Painted my nails this morning with Paradoxal by Chanel. Spending the rest of the day at home, resting and tidying a bit and then making dinner for Husband tonight, Meatballs and mash :-)
It is 11 years to the day today that I moved to London and changed my life forever and for the better :-) Moved in with The Man straight away, why waste time, right? :-)
Yesterday, we had a date in the evening. We were both really tired but since there were no food at home we had to go out and in the end had a good time :-) We went to our local Italian restaurant called L'Infinito in Wanstead, on the high street.
Dress: Vintage by Beyond Retro (not maternity), earrings: Vintage, belt: Primark, heels: New Look
This is what I am wearing today:
Sequin jumper: Topshop (bought last season in Stockholm in the sale), skirt: H&M
The plan for today is to stay at home, be lazy and watch Formula 1 :-) Have to do some laundry and sort out the walk-in as we have a new chest of drawers that needs to go in there...
When I was helping out with the kids last week, my brother in law gave me a New Look giftcard as a thank you so next week I am going shopping again. I also got a gift card from Marc Jacobs from Shirin. Don't you just love free shopping?!? :-) These are the things I have been looking at at New Look
What do you think? Cute huh?
Hope you all have a good Sunday...
After travelling back and forth to Kent this week I am now feeling very tired. I haven't slept well either, but I guess I better get used to it for when baby arrives :-) This morning I drove us to Wanstead, where Husband went to the barber for a haircut and I went to the postoffice to send our thank you cards. The postoffice also hold the Wanstead Chemist where I bought the stretchmark oil I use on my belly to fight off the stretchmarks that might come with the pregnancy. I got a clear lipgloss as well as the oil, both from Clarins. Which is turning out to be one of my favourite brands for skincare. When buying two items I got a make-up bag with some samples in it. Hand cream, mascara, showergel, cleanising gel and beauty flash balm. As well as the skincare I bought a new hairband. Well, not new, as I am just replacing the one I gave to Ingrid a few weeks ago. After the shopping I went to meet up with Husband at Starbucks and then I drove us to B&Q and then home. Tonight we might go out to dinner, depending on how I/we feel :-)
The P's gave me a giftcard for my birthday from Topshop and here is a close up of the shoes I bought (I know I showed you a picture before but this is one I took last night. Painted my nails yesterday, changed it to Graphite by Chanel, I need to repaint some nails as they got smudges when I straightened my hairThe four leaf clover is what Karen gave me for my birthday :-) and the rest of the jewellery are pictures of what I am wearing today as I haven't taken a Outfit of the day picture. They are all by Tiffany&Co or Links of London
Figs and Leopard print
Today I had a midwife appointment (all is good) and then I went to Westfield in Stratford as I got a giftcard from Topshop from the P's for my birthday. I had seen these heels on their website and wanted to try them on to make sure they weren't too high (I'm finding it hard to stay away from the superhigh heels. Let's face it, once the baby is born, when will I ever wear them??) Anyway, I got these faux ponyskin leopard print heels. They are high, but not superhigh...
Since autumn is definitely here, I had to buy some candles for the house with a distinct autumn fragrance. They had spicy cranberry in John Lewis but I think it is more suitable for Christmas, which is when I will buy that fragrance, so I bought the Fig and Vetivert and it smells just autumn enough :-)
Got Thank you cards from Paperchase, need to send them to everyone who has bought the baby a gift and to everyone who came to the party...
At the moment I can't sleep very well at night, at home or away, so I am feeling very lazy and also looking it :-) Tomorrow is the last time I pick the kids up from school and then I get a ride home from Kent as well. We have no plans for the weekend, but since I haven't seen Husband since Tuesday morning I'm hoping there will be some husband and wife time :-)
When I was browsing and looking what to buy in Topshop, I tried this dress on and it suits and fits me perfectly, but I decided to go for the shoes instead. I might have to go back for this dress though as I can't stop thinking about it :-) I just love the pattern and the pink collar and its £50, so not super expensive.
I also tried these heels on and I might have to ask my mum to get them for me as a belated birthday present. I will never wear them as they are waaaaaaay to high even for me but they are so pretty I might have to buy them just to have them in my collection. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE them!!!!
just missed the train
have to sit here for half an hour and im hungry :-(
have done the school run, am now going to rest for the rest of the day until i have to pick the kids up. xoxo
Today's look is very casual. I am going to help my sister in law with the kids, so no need for over the top glamour ;-) Taking the train to Kent in a few minutes, hopefully before the rain starts.
The look before I put my face on and did my hair...
Blazer: Primark, brooches: Vintage and Swarovski, t-shirt: New Look, jeans: Mothercare, shoes: Converse, bag: Louis Vuitton
Added a pink ring from Marc by Marc Jacobs and all my over night stuff is in my Marc by Marc Jacobs denim bag
That's it!! See you in a few days...
Chanel Blue Boy from their Denim blue collection...
staying at home
watching harry potter xoxo
I woke up this morning from a funny dream. I was in the hospital and my husband told me I had given birth to twins. Baby boy that he had named Bradley Cooper and a baby girl Theresa May and told me I had had a c-section. I had no recollection of giving birth at all, but I was thinking that now I had to tell my mum that she was right, as she told me after the first scan that it might stll be twin as one baby could be hiding and then I woke up :-)
Real life Bradley Cooper the actor
And real life Theresa May, the politician
Like I said, it was a funny dream :-D
We, Husband and I, had a little party for my birthday and for the baby yesterday at our house.
Where we served prosecco and
home made cupcakes by Shirin
for our friends and family. Handsome Husband serving the drinks from the kitchen. As the sun was shining a bit and it wasn't too cold outside we decided to stay in the garden for as long a possible :-) Probably the last time for this year as the autumn is approaching us fast.
There, now you can see the size of the bump :-) I've got 5 and a half weeks left according to the date but might be 7 weeks as one can easily go over the date.
Brother in law and I
Husband and stepbrother
Karen, future godmother, and I laughing at something funny :-)
Karen, Alma and I
Joe and Jayden looking at the fishes ;-)
A very photogenic Luna with a lushious cupcake
and Jayden licking of the icing, which is obviously the best bit. He then gave the remaining muffing to his dad...
We had a few tantrums, but nothing major, they are kids after all. If they don't get what they want, you will hear about it :-)
Mr. B posing like a professional :-)
My lovely sister in law and also future godmother
Disco, disco, disco time!!
Shirin playing with camera...
My goddaughter Jasmine and I
Today's outfit: Dress: Vintage
Belt: Primark, nails Models own Grey day
Heels: Jimmy Choo
Here I am trying to take a good bump picture, but it isn't working out like I wanted :-)
I zoomed in to much!!
We got flowers,
lots of baby gifts :-)
And everyone said they had a good time, so we are declaring the party a success!!!
After four days of celebrating, I am staying home today. I think I deserve it! Have been to Waitrose this morning to return the champagne glasses we hired and we have also been to the vet with Dodger for a check up. He might have skin allergies, so we now have to give him anithistamine twice a day :-(
I got ready at around 2pm, but didn't leave the house until 3.30, had pictures to take and didn't want to be too early, Shirin is usually late :-)
Watch: Michael Kors
Charms and bracelet: Juicy Couture
Jacket: H&M, blouse and jeans: New Look
Shoes: Vivienne Westwood for Melissa
Met Shirin outside Bond Street tube station then walked to Claridge's where we had a table booked for 5pm Afternoon tea
They somehow figured out it was my birthday and presented me with a little cake with a candle, which I thought was very sweet
Also got a small tea jar with English breakfast tea
After a trip to the ladies room, we went to the Claridge's bar where we were meeting up with Stepbrother and Dinesha. Had a Cuban Cooler (again, virgin cocktail)
And they also gave me a birthday cake :-) We got the last table when Isaid we were there to celebrate my birthday ;-)
Had a lovely, relaxed time. Wasn't looking for something wild or a huge party. We are having a birthday/baby party tomorrow in our house where we are serving champagne and cupcakes to our friends, really looking forward to that :-)
And now to the gifts ;-) I got a gift certificate from Marc Jacobs from Shirin and her man
Chanel eyelash curlers and one of the denim blue nail varnishes, called Blue Boy, from my step-brother
Husband bought these lilies last weekend, but they started blossoming on my birthday :-) Lilies are my favourite flowers, especially the white Casablanca lilies
And these are the cards I got, some of them are very me ;-)
I have to say that I had a very good birthday and the date with Husband the day before was even better. Felt well taken care of ;-)
Going to bed
I am really tired after a busy, but lovely birthday afternoon and evening at the Claridge's hotel and bar. I'll update tomorrow if I have time, both Saturday and Sunday are busy for us here at home...
thanks for the lovely comments and birthday wishes :-)
Vivienne and Melissa
My new shoes arrived yesterday. Ordered them on ASOS and as you can see they are Vivienne Westwood for Melissa and they literally smell of sweets :-) half price in the sale...
Going to get ready for this afternoon, need to eat something before I leave. Meeting Shirin at 4.30...
Today is my birthday!!!!
Woop, Woop!!! Today is my 34th birthday (I am also 34 weeks pregnant, lucky number?) I've uploaded pictures from my previous 4 birthdays. Starting with the 30th, where Husband and I had a party together (as our birthday are a month apart)
30th birthday party at a bar in Bermondsey Street
31st birthday @ Bluu bar, Hoxton Square
32nd birthday in a pub on Marylebone High Street
33rd birthday at Haymarket Hotel
Pictures to come later tonight or tomorrow :-)
Met Husband at Bond Street tube station and walked to Louis Vuitton on New Bond Street. Where Husband bought me a new hangbag :-)
Took a taxi to St Christopher's place off Oxford Street and had dinner outside at a Turkish restaurant called Sofra. Had a lovely relaxed dinner, sitting outside people watching. When we were full and satisfied we walked to The Mandeville Hotel and their Devigne bar, where we had cocktails! (mine was a virgin one of course called Supernatrual)
Time to show the gift...
I got the Damier Ebene Canvas bag called Neverfull
I have been very spoilt today :-D
The celebrating continues tomorrow with Afternoon tea and cocktails at Claridges hotel with some of my friends, nothing big though...
Early birthday dinner outfit
Entire outfit: Primark. The brooches are all vintage except for the blue butterfly which is by Swarovski
Going to dinner with Husband at Carluccio's :-)
Dreaming of Chanel
Until I can afford the real deal I will be dreaming of Chanel and be wearing the best copies I can find on the High Street. This jacket is from the Swedish high street chain Lindex, bought it in Stockholm two years ago I think and I love it. It look fabulous with pearls, but today I am wearing one of my pimped up Primark t-shirts. The jeans and the ballerinas are from New Look and the bag is Louis Vuitton. Am off to see the girls for a coffee and meet baby Jack for the first time. Deirdre was first to pop of the five of us :-)
Prawn earrings are from Topshop and was bought last week
Look updated: added this brooch by Faith Barber
and this Mikey ring
Also got my first birthday card in the post today from Karen and family :-) It's my 34th birthday tomorrow ;-P
Snakeskin & Miu Miu-esque
I accidentally deleted the last post and now I can't be bothered and I don't have the time to re-write everything, but here are all the pictures I took yesterday...
The studs I ordered yesterday arrived this morning, never experienced such a fast delivery, very happy. It also meant that I would go nowhere today as I had a plan. I bought this trenchcoat a while ago from Primark. Tried to find pictures of me wearing it but couldn't find any, I know I have worn it. Always thought it looked a little plain, needed some pimping :-) So when I saw the Burberry coat, from when I don't know, almost covered in studs, I thought I'd use it as inspiration.
This is what I used. Obviously a coat
Studs and a spoon to close the studs. I'm sure there are tools out there that you can use, but I was happy to use my fingers and a spoon.
It took a few hours but I am extremely happy with the result :-) My fingers are a bit sore, but thats better than Husband's bank account being sore from buying the real deal ;-)
The back of the coat
Just need to find a belt to wear it with...
Going to read my Grazia now and then re-do my nails.
Woke up, had breakfast and then got a creative inspiration from somewhere and did my nails. I attempted some nail art, not 100% happy with it but as it was the very first attempt I am satisfied with the result (I have already smudged it so will have remove it later)
Also pimped two of my plain t-shirts with some glass beads
and some Swarovski beads. The Handbags on the black t-shirts are from when I used to work for Mikey Jewellery in Harrods. Used to be brooches, t-shirts are from Primark. The pimping took about two hours, one for each t-shirt.
Still haven't tried them on so don't know what they look like on, but I am happy with the result as they look on a hanger.
After Musicmagpie picked up all of our cd's and dvd's I took the bus to Ilford and went baby shopping in Primark. Got really tired and hungry so went to Costa for a sandwich and a cinnamon latte and then to WHSmith to buy the American Vogue with Kate Moss' wedding (I Know I'm late but haven't had the energy to go to Selfridge's this week)
When I got home I was EXHAUSTED!! So went to bed for a nap
and to read Harry Potter (for the fifth or sixth time)
When I was in my creative mood I ordered 200 studs from a company called studs and punks. I have a sleeveless trench coat I would like to personlised ie copy last seasons Burberry coat with the studs ;-)
Now waiting for Husband to order Chinese food for dinner and just relax for the rest of the evening. Westfield's shopping centre in Stratford opens tomorrow and I don't know if it will be too clever of me to go there on opening day, but I am really excited and really want to go :-S Cleaner is coming at 1.30 so I don't have that much time to decide if I'm going or not. Might leave it for Wednesday...
No face on!!
Painted my nails in this fabulous autumn colour yesterday...
£5 from Boots
I haven't put my face on yet. I am waiting for a delivery guy to come and pick up all of our cd's and dvd's and depending on when he/she arrives, I might take the bus to Primark in Ilford and buy some baby stuff. Our next door neighbours gave the baby some money yesterday so I thought I'd go and see if I can find some nice, comfortable clothes :-)
T-shirt: Primark, skirt same as yesterday, collar necklace: ASOS
Vivienne Westwood for Melissa. I got the ones in nude. They are in the sale, half price, £60 instead £120 :-) Only in size 8 though, I'm a 7, but I have a similar pair in black and I know they are adjustable :-) There is a skull at the front of the shoe. I love they look neutral but if you look closer they are also a little bit rock n roll ;-) If you read this blog you will know I love my skulls...
Leather & Velvet
This weekend has been a lovely one, spent time with Husband :-) Been to Canary Wharf twice. Today we went to Jamie's Italian for brunch, now watching Formula 1 race.
Top: Warehouse (this season), skirt: H&M (bought in the sale last year), "velvet" ankle boots: New Look (bought last year)
Silver stud earring: Tiffany&Co, Cubic Zirconia and 9ct gold stud earring: Argos
Skull friendship bracelet and watch: Links of London
Ball sterling silver bracelet: Tiffany&Co, Sweetie bracelet and Sweetie bracelet with rose quartz and charms: Links of London. I am also wearing my XOXO ring by Tiffany&Co.
Going to drink my homemade coffee now and finish the F1...
Have been to Canary Wharf with Husband. Went to Costa coffee for a coffee, cake and magazine date :-) I drove there and back, just had to mention that :-D
The dress is from Primark and the heels are from Fornarina
All jewellery from today's outfit are from Tiffany&Co and Links of London
Chanel @ Harrods
The way to the collection...
Parts of the beauty hall. Who wouldn't want to have a few of these sized perfume bottles at home :-)
The photobooth, where you can have your photo taken after you have had a Chanel-over ;-) The photobooth even has a wind-machine!!
The exhibition on third floor has a strict no photo's rule, but who can watch all this amazing-ness and not have any pictures to remember it by?!?
One of the window-displays
When you have the pictures taken you get them (for free) in a little Chanel folder, how very posh and fun...
I bought one of the exclusive items made for Harrods and will only be available at Harrods for three weeks
It's a neutral, natrual shimmer shade that goes with any look. Only problem I have is when I run out I won't be able to find it again :-s
After all the Chanel watching and drooling, we needed a break so went to Andronica cafe on fourth floor and shared a creme brulee and I had a decaf mocha...
If you are in London for the next few weeks, you need to go see the exhibition and all the other Chanel stuff. I hear there is a Chanel version of the classic Harrods green bag, but I never found it. The Coco Chanel doll and the Karl Lagerfeld bear are my favourites.
Picture of the Coco Doll borrowed from http://fashionismymuse.blogspot.com
I bought this jumper a while ago and never wore it. Remembered it yesterday and originally matched it with a pair of dark jeans from New Look, but I had an awful night and just want to be comfortable today. Jumper and comfy (too big) jeans are both from Primark.
Ring is by Swarovski and I am also wearing my Michael Kors watch and my Louis Vuitton Epi Speedy bag today. The plan is to go have lunch with the girls and then meet Shirin outside of Harrods to see the Chanel Transformation which is only here for a few more weeks.
It's a bugs life
I had this fabulous idea yesterday to put all my bug brooches on at the same time as bugs are in this season. They are all vintage except for the blue butterfly which is by Swarovski.
Today's make up is very natural I think. I have used the eyeliner and mascara I bought yesterday and the lipstick though not new is also by L'Oreal. Foundation and blusher: Chanel and eyebrow shadow is by Dior, highlighter used on browbone and apple of my cheeks is by Benefit
Blazer and Brogues: Primark, dress: H&M, lace slip: M&S, scarf on bag: Vintage by Beyond Retro and the Epi Speedy bag is by Louis Vuitton. There, now you know everything I know about what I am wearing today. I have plans to meet up with my stepbrother today, who came back from Mykonos yesterday, but first I need to go to Topshop to exchange my brooches that arrives a little faulty yesterday, two beads missing. One I can repair as the pearl is in the bag, but I want to see if they can exchange them first.
Finishing my breakfast now...
Fuchsia and Peridot
This is what I bought yesterday in Boots in Canary Wharf. I looked all over Oxford Street a few weeks ago and everywhere had sold out of the Peridot by Chanel. Yesterday I saw that they had a sample at the newly opened Chanel counter in Boots so I thought I'd ask and I got lucky :-)
Also saw this Revlon colour in a magazine and I really liked the look of it so I got that as well. They have three for two on 100's of beauty products at Boots so I got a new mascara and eyeliner by L'Oreal (appparently to complement my blue eyecolour) There is a picture at the bottom of this post. It's the line that Jennifer Lopez if the face of.
I might have bought something :-s
not telling you what yet ;-) xoxo
My laptop has decided not to work with me so I am having to use Husband's laptop (which is better) but it means I can't zoom in on outfit pictures etc as he doesn't have Picassa and it takes a lot longer as I have to download the pictures from the memory card, never mind :-)
Today's look is a bit more interesting than the last one. I haven't left the house since Monday afternoon so I thought I'd try to spice things up a little with some colour now that autumn is here. Don't know how long my straight hair will last as it looks mean out there! Thinking of taking my newly delivered MArie Claire and go to Canary Wharf for a coffee and some window shopping.
Blazer and jeans: Primark, blouse: H&M
The back of the blouse has this lace part but as I am wearing a vesttop underneath and the blazer on top you can't see it.
Eye ring: Covent Garden market
Bracelets and charms: Links of London
Yesterday Grazia arrived adn there are some gorgeous pictures of Sarah Jessica Parker in some fantastic outfits. I only buy Grazia for the fashion, have no interest what so ever in the gossip.
Also painted my nails in this Very dark, autumn colour from Chanel.
And these are the earrings I oredered from Argos. They are 9ct gold and cost under £10 for each pair. I think they are cute everyday earrings that you don't have to be careful with.
Found out yesterday that my niece, Olivia, has to wear an eyepatch as she has a lazy eye and the sight on that eye is not as good as the sight on her other eye. She is still only just over a year so she will most definitely grow out of it :-)
Last night we had to take Dodger to animal hospital in Wanstead for a check up as he was acting strange. He was flicking his ear and scratching a lot more than usual. Turns out he has a small infection and a raised temperature so he got two injections, one was a painkiller and the other was a full dose of antibiotics. It's like taking care of a sick child, when he is in pain, I am in pain :-( but vet says he will be fine, we just need to go in for a follow up check up in 10 days.
Today the plan has been to stay in and I think the weather agreed with my plan as it is raining and very windy outside. I have had a few deliveries to wait for anyway. The chest of drwaers for the landing has arrived so has Tesco's food deliver and I am now waiting for Argos to deliver two pairs of earrings I ordered yesterday. At 1pm the cleaner arrived so when she leaves at 5pm there is no point in getting ready to anywhere as Husband will be home in a few hours and so dinner (yesterday's lasagne) will be heated. I know this is the most boring post ever but I haven't done anything in two days and therefore have nothing to say...
Purple & Turquoise
Purple, as in the purple in my dress and
(dress: Primark, blazer: H&M, shoes: New Look)
Turquoise as in the colour of my ring. I know it's a lame headline but I ran out of ideas :-)
Top ring: Swarovski
Bottom ring: Tiffany&Co
Brooch: Vintage Dior
Unicorn necklace: Gift from Shirin
Watch: Michael Kors
Lilac lips: MAC
DHL came early so I went to the supermarket and Starbucks to get dinner and a coffee. I am now at home again, going to read my book and Vogue and just relax. Even though I had a good night, I am now feeling tired again. Dodger has been sleeping all day so I think I'll join him. Might watch some Sex and the City or Devil wears Prada...
Adele and Diane
I got Vogue and InStyle in the post this morning so my day is set, at least for a few hours. Am waiting for DHL to pick up a parcel to be sent to my brother in Sweden and then for a window guy to come between 5-6pm to measure our bathroom windows. So might not get to go outside today. I have also downloaded a few books on my Kindle and I got the six Harry Potter films I ordered on Amazon, they arrived on Saturday. I think my autumn is set :-) Now I just need to buy some candles and I am good...
I ordered two brooches from Topshop on Friday, am hoping they will arrive sometime this week.
I hope they look as fabulous when they arrive as they do in these pictures. The one with the red drops was featured in the latest issue of Elle...
Audrey & I
Yesterday started off lazy, but then at three pm got busy when the P's + kids arrived :-D with the changing table for the baby and other babystuff. I made chocolate balls and defrosted cinnamon rolls and sponge cake for snacks. In the evening we had plans to go to Queen's steakhouse for dinner with the B's so I put my face on and made my hair early so I didn't have to think about it later. The P's and husband and I stayed in the living room for a few hours and then after the kids had their dinner we went out in the garden to enjoy what was left of the summer sun and the kids could use up some of the energy before going to bed.
During the day I wore a vintage dress by Beyond Retro. I bought the hair braid from the chemist/beauty shop in Wanstead last week.
The perfume I wore during the day
As you can see the braid didn't stay on for very long (I realised when Ingrid tried it on it suited her better, but I might buy a new one and wear it differently)
The dress I wore in the evening is new and from H&M in Selfridges, pearl necklace is by Topshop, sequin leggings are also from H&M, earrings are vintage
I added dark red velvet ankle boots to the outfit but forgot to take a picture with the shoes on.
Below you can see the next fashion icon, our 6 year old niece :-) Isn't she adorable?!? We ade her very happy today. Bought tickets to see Britney Spears in October ;-)
And finally my next shoe must have:
Metallic ankle boots from New Look. I NEED these in my wardrobe now!!!
Today we sorted out our cd's and dvd's, by sorting out I mean sold them to Musicmagpie.co.uk, they are being picked up on the 12th of September, all 333 of them :-) Also got the changing table up in the babyroom. In the evening I drove us to the Tesco carpark and Husband helped me practice bay parking for two hours :-) I sort of get it now, he is very patience with me and an excellent teacher :-) Now going to watch some tv and then go to bed...
Here are the pictures from last nights drinks at W Hotel
I must be saying something interesting as Husband is paying attention and I look like that, mid-speech :-)
My Handsome and fabulous Husband :-*
Mrs. P (Mr. P was taking the picture)
The very glamorous disco balls at the entrance of the bar, which is on the First Floor
Now to the important stuff ;-) The outfit
Lancome and Chanel eyes
New Look heels
Chanel Graphite nails and Tiffany&Co ring
Broken Primark belt turned into a stacked bracelet
Kate Moss for Topshop dress
With blazer from Primark (got really hot on the tube so the blazer didn't stay on for very long), sequin leggings: H&M (bought a few seasons ago)
Without blazer and now you can see how big the bump is :-D
How was your Friday evening spent? Today we are expecting Mr and Mrs P with kids and then in the evening we are going out to dinner with Mr and Mrs B plus kids, also know as Husband's sister and family. It's a busy weekend, but I am feeling that I am running out of the occasions when we can just do whatever we want and whenever. Next year we have to find a babysitter (Shirin, hint, hint) :-)
Going to to put my face on now so I look presentable for Mr and Mrs P ;-)
Yesterday, Husband flew the two of us to Blackpool. We left at around 11am, arrived in Blackpool at 12.30 had lunch at Bella Italia and then coffee at Starbucks.
Went for a walk on the seaside promenade
Then took a taxi back to the airport and flew back home. We arrived back home fro 7pm, got changed and went to W hotel where one of Husband's clients had a party (will show pictures in next post).

Proof that husband can fly ;-)

Was a fabulous day, yet tiring. In the morning the weather was playing games with us so we almost didn't go, it was very hazy...
Trying to hard?
Is it ok to dress "sexy" when pregnant? I have been very lucky so far in my pregnancy when it comes to clothes. I haven't had to buy alot of maternity wear, I just buy the regular clothes in a bigger size. But I have a dilemma now. When going out to a bar is it ok to wear tight fitting outfits or does it just look like I am trying to hard? I'll upload two pictures of two outfits that I would love to wear but am not sure I can pull them off.
Outfit number 1: Top/dress: Kate Moss for Topshop, leggings: H&M, heels: New Look. I would wear this with my hair down and straightened and with lots of eyeliner/eyepencil around my eyes (which I would normally wear) and a blazer
Outfit number 2: Dress: Primark (bought last year and wore last at my 33rd birthday)
None of these items are maternity wear. What do you say?
Birthday wish list
Lately I have been into gold jewellery and I found these charms and a charm bracelet on H. Samuel's website. I like things that will last a long time and that I can eventually pass on to my goddaughters and nieces and even though these are just 9ct I still think they will last as I can be careful with things if I want to be. I am usually very clumsy but have found lately that I am getting better (don't know if my Husband would agree)
My favourites are the four leaf clover, the dolphin and the horse shoe (very Carrie Bradshaw)
What I wore this past week
Here are some of the outfits I wore this week. Yesterday we went to Blackpool and to W hotel's Wyld bar on Wardour street, Soho (London) for drinks. Will upload pictures of that in my next post...
Jacket: H&M, T-shirt: Gift from my brother from Iron MAiden's concert in Gothenburg, trousers: Mothercare, shoes: New Look
Blouse and jumper: Primark, trousers: Mothercare, shoes: New Look
Unicorn necklace: Birthday gift from Shirin last year (only just had the jumpring fixed on the pendant)
Dress: Vintage from Beyond Retro, shoes: Converse
