It was a graveyard smash!

Top: Alexa Chung for Madewell, Skirt: Topshop, Shoes: Primark

Happy Halloween everyone!

Hope your having a lovely day, my boyfriend is being a terrible Halloween Scrooge and closing the blinds and turning the lights off to trick or treaters so its left to me to answer the door all night, which so far has kept me busy!

I love this time of year and am getting very excited for Christmas already.

Can I put a tree up already please?

I've had an amazing weekend this weekend. My mum has been up to visit and we have done some amazing retail therapy, here are some of my purchases which I am really happy with ^ ^ ^

We have also had some really good news and have welcomed a new nephew into the family. My amazing sister has given birth to the very handsome Charley, so happy for her and cant wait for cuddles with him.

Now I am about to settle down with my favorite boys to a Sunday roast and a relaxing evening.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend too xxx

Wool & Lace

Leather Skirt: Primark, Jumper: Primark, Shoes: H&M

So I've had a day off today cos I'm working on Saturday and I love having days off in the week. I get the house to myself and because some of my friends are off for half term I got to meet them for lunch and have a good catch up. Pity I have to go back in tomorrow :(
Oh and how cold has it suddenly got?


Versace for H&M Video....

Versace 2011 collection for H&M from Champagne Valentine on Vimeo.

The launch is getting closer and this video has made me super excited for the launch of the collection. I think its going to have to be a trip to Manchester to be able to actually get anything as I don't think much will be in the Sheffield stores (as usual!)

Blog loving!

So every now and then I'll post up a link to a blog I follow and love, to share with you all. And today it is Krystal Simpson and her blog What is Reality Anyway?

She has the most perfect laid back style and I love that its a mixture of everything. Outfits posts, photos of friends & social & editorial photos etc.

Have a look and love it like I do

What is Reality Anyway?

I'll take a bruise, I know you're worth it......

Dress: Vero Moda ,Cardigan: Villa, Boots: Topshop

I just recently purchased these boots and I absolutely adore them. They are so comfy that I can wear them in the day aswell (I keep wanting to wear heels more in the day)

I got this dress a while ago and its the first time I have worn it. Its slightly on the granny side maybe? But I think I like it

There was once a very lovely, very frightened girl...

One big massive post

Ive not posted for a while as been busy with work and children etc. Had alot on aswell. Last weekend we went to Manchester for the Warehouse Project to see The Kills and The Horrors which was really fun. Also had my friends little girls Christening which was adorable. This weekend Ive been catching up with friends, going bowling!!, went to see the amazing Laura Marling at Sheffield Cathedral last night and today has been a proper chill out day. Stroll around town, coffee, magazines, Breakfast at Tiffany's and popcorn!

Back to work tomorrow! Weekends just seem to fly by don't they?

Pink is my favorite colour!

I get bored far to easily and have bucked the trend and gone a bit pink! Id like the blond to be a bit more blonder but that will have to come in time. I think I need to just get used to it first.

Lets see how long this lasts....

I usually cut my own hair and have always had it short but I think I have decided I'm going to try and grown it into a kind of Purdy / Karen O style cut.
Mind you I always say this, then get to that really annoying length, the clippers come out and whoosh off it all goes again. I'll keep a hair growth diary.

Super Furry!

Jumper: Alexa Chung for Madewell
Shirt: Alexa Chung for Madewell
Shorts: Vintage Levi's
Tights: Topshop
Shoes: Office

This jumper is the softest thing I have ever worn, I love it. Its the first time Ive worn my Alexa collection stuff and I got quite a few compliments on the shirt and jumper so I'm very happy with it all.

I never really know what to write on these outfit posts so its pretty brief and I know Im the kind of person that just likes looking at pictures aswell anyway!

To Be Adored

I know their are not a "new" brand but I fall in love with TBA every season and with every new collection. If only I could afford everything on here, I would be one happy lady!

Fingers crossed Father Christmas may see this and be kind this year :)
