Break Over & Great Read

Right, summer break is over, the children back to school. I can't really say the summer is over as there hasn't been any proper summer around at all. So, back to our usual daily routine it is. Which also provides less time for one of my favourite occupations - reading. This is the book I've just finished:



Loved it to bits!

She's the patron saint of my little girl. 
What a role model.

Three Things - Once Again

Lots of lovely little things 
putting a smile on my face these days ...


:: a gorgeous pair of handmade earrings, 
 a totally unexpected gift from a good friend ::


:: same friend, same loveliness ::


:: a stylish pair of my little girl's sunglasses, 
a supermarket bargain :)  ::

Plus another huge thing making 
my heart leap with joy - 
I found some 'long lost' friends 
on Facebook last night - 
happy, happy, happy!!!

An Outfit, At Last!

Well, it's been a while, hasn'it? It's not that I don't get out of my pyjamas every morning, it's just that it doesn't really occur to me to take a photo every day - I think of that in the evening when I browse other people's blogs - and by that time I'm quite possibly already wearing my pyjamas ... :)


Anyway, I spotted (rather appropriate, don't you think?) this gorgeous dress on e-bay the other day - it's Boden but I don't remember it from the last few seasons so it must be from a few years ago. I loved the colour and it really was a bargain!


It cost less than my Joules bangles ...



Outfit details:

- sandals - local shoe shop
- dress - Boden (via e-bay)
- cardigan - Monsoon
- clutch - local boutique
- bangles - Joules
- ring - gifted
- angel pendant!
- earrings - Etsy
- sunglasses - Boden



Oh, I wore this to church yesterday. 
And for my Mum's birthday get-together 
in the evening!

Perhaps not the best moment to show off my new hair-do ... :)
