Home From Home.....

Ok may be not quite...

But it was comfortable at least.

A nice big, clean comfy bed;
(All to my self to starfish in)

Facilities for a cuppa too.

Which meant comfy clothes for my meal with colleagues;

Top - H&M
Jeans - ASOS


With a little sparkle of course;
Sandals - BHS

(It has to be said feet are horrible!)

On route to my hotel I popped into Tesco and used a voucher I had to purchase these;
Basic white Tshirt £2

White blouse for Ashleigh ready for 6th form £4

Pretty white top £4

I really like the detail

Dress for work £7

2 necklaces both £1.50 and an anklet to put away for Christmas £1 

I actually got overcharged on the jewellery so ended up with a refund for more so I still have another voucher to spend.

These odd purchases actually saved my bacon as on arrival to my location I was told me training sessions were to be casual wear and I had packed business attire!

Thankfully I could tweak my  outfits and wore this for my first meeting;
Top - A holiday purchase from France
Jeans - ASOS
Shoes - New Look
 For Tuesday meal I changed top to make my jeans a little more dressy;

Top - eBay purchase (River Island)
The sparkle on the shoulder gives it a little bit of added interest.


As does the large scoop at the back.


And for my last training sessions today I wore one of the new tops I brought.

Top - Tesco (sale purchase)
Shoes - Dolcis (Charity shop purchase)
Never have I been so pleased to have brought the odd extra few items of clothes.

Thankfully at least now I know next week will be the same bar one day so can pack accordingly.

On a different note I take my hat off to you bloggers that take your own photos in the mirror.
I found it a real pain to do and these were the best of a bad bunch.
Credit to you.

  4. Nice of them to tell you the dress code before you arrived, tesco can come in handy sometimes, there is no disputing that.
    Good to see you packed some sparkle, that purple top is fabulous.
