Cigarette......... Pants Anyone?....

No I wouldn't be offering anyone cigarettes, thats one habit I most defiantly don't have.
But I have fell in love with what my dear mom calls cigarette pants.


Perfect for work or smart casual days when you want to steer away from the jeans.


This pair were from Sainsburys would you believe and a bargain with the extra 25% off that they have at the moment.


I shall be wearing these slots in the next few months as they are just so comfy.

Red & Black Corporate Attire....

So why should business wear be boring?
Black can be the perfect blank canvas to draw on and red for me makes the perfect accompaniment to this little black dress.


I must admit I was chuffed this dress felt a little less snug than it has over the past few months.




It means I am sure I will get a little more wear out of it as the weather cools.


Think tights might be needed to cover the pasty white legs mind!


Whats your go to happy colour?

Another Day, Another Dollar...

Do you find you wish your week away?
From Monday you wish for the weekend to be able to relax and unwind, but first you have to tackle the working week.

Dress - ASOS
Scarf - Thrifted
Shoes - Debenhams

Monday luckily flew by, with an early start and a very full schedule.
Which doesn't stop when you get home either in our house.


Oh well, at least today was a calmer one.
Hope you guys are all having a good week so far.

Relax.... Don't Do It....

Were you singing Frankie goes to hollywood to when you read the title?
Or was it just me?


Yesterday was a day filled with cleaning, tidying, washing and of course the dreaded ironing!


That said I still managed to pop to the local craft fair and catch up with a few friends as well as watering the lottie and the inlaws greenhouse at home.


I even managed to upload a few more items to eBay and Etsy.

As for today?


Well it most definitely be relaxing and doing as little as possible.
Except for cooking lunch that is.

Happy Sunday all.

The Good, The Bad And The Very Ugly....

It seems like forever since I did this type of post so here goes.

The Good
Family and friends


When all else seems to be falling down around your ears it tends to be the ones you love that pick you up, dust you down and remind you its not really half as bad as it seems.
And I love them loads for it.

Being thankful


For food in my belly, a roof over my head and clothes to keep me warm.
The basics are all here for me and for that I am thankful.

Wedding Bells


My niece has booked her wedding for this November, yes a rush I know but it was originally booked for this summer and was cancelled due to the death of her mother in law to be.
It will be so nice to see her tie the knot and I know it would be something her mother in law would have wanted for them both.

The Bad
Broken Car


Whilst its finally fixed and thankfully with out too huge a bill it worried us slightly to say the least.

Broken Oven


Would you believe my oven door shattered on the same day I had bad news?
Typical, eh!

Flooded Kitchen


We awoke to a soaked floor after the machine had flooded.
Thankfully it was the pipes that had blocked and hubby managed to unblock it, so no huge bill.

The Ugly
Death of a chicken


Poor thing died in its sleep.

New Job Time


Looks like its time for me to be job hunting.
Oh well a change is as good as a rest they say.
I keep smiling anyway, as it confuses the hell out of people!
