Today was one of those delightful, sporadic winter days when it’s not too cold and you can go coat-less. Not warm enough though to wear anything less than a thick wooly jumper. I love this one, even more because it was such a bargain. I actually bought it in summer; I was at a car boot sale that promptly turned chilly as soon as I arrived. I hurriedly searched a couple of stalls for a cardi when a nice old chap suggested this and let me have it for a pound. I’ve come to the conclusion that all the loveliest of jumpers are itchy, it’s just always the case, right?
My jeans are the Topshop ones that ruined half my wardrobe by rubbing off on them. After a bit of whinging they’ve invited me to send them off for testing but it all seems a bit of a hassle so I haven’t got round to it yet. Wearing my Miss Selfridge wedge boots, again. They’re just so comfy even if they do threaten to assist in breaking my ankles every day. My giant leopard print bag I’m in love with. I’m afraid I don’t know where it’s from, but I don’t care that much either. When my great aunty doris died just over a year ago and we were sorting out her things, I found this in her cupboard. My nan said I could have it and now I use it all the time. Don’t you agree that sometimes the things you use and love the most are the things that came from unexpected places or people, or that are worth the least?
I’ve got a new favourite hair essential for all of you that ask about my hair! The Babyliss Big Hair styling tool! It’s hard to explain but it’s basically like a round brush that spins and a hairdryer in one. It gives your hair that silky smooth just-been-to-the-hairdressers feel whilst giving you so much volume! It saves me so much time in the morning getting ready as I don’t have to use straightners or mess around with serums etc. The pictures don’t really show how good it is because I last used it yesterday after I washed my hair, but think of my hair how it is now but before flattening it over a nights sleep and you’re there. I got mine from Tesco Direct and found them to be the cheapest, a good idea for christmas presents perhaps!
What’s everyone doing this weekend? I’ve spent most of today searching round second hand furniture shops and charity shops for an old fashioned dressing table for my sister. She’s having her bedroom redecorated and wants one like my one that I painted white and made a bit ‘shabby chic’. No luck though so will have to keep looking! I love buying furniture and doing a bit of DIY to make it look brand new. In an ideal life my job would be spending all day buying bargain, old fashioned furniture that nobody loved and making it beautiful, I think! What would you all do if you could do anything? Enjoy the rest of the weekend all of you, only 6 days til the next!
