So, last week I was working like a crazy woman (not that I am that normal, but last week was just unbelievable!), so I neglect my outfits’ post and failed to record a couple. To redeem myself this week, I … Continue reading

What a glorious day to finish off the week! I am just so happy it is warmer and the sun is out! I started the week still trying to transition into my spring wardrobe, wearing tights and mixing some lighter … Continue reading
Like most people living in the UK, I am eagerly awaiting for the weather to improve.
As a self-confessed mild (!!!) shopaholic, I have already built a base of lovely spring items for my wardrobe. The problem is, this weather is preventing me from realising my full new season potential.
Still, after a few pre-holidays purchases, I came back hungry for new items, and ended up buying a few.
Since the SS12 shows, I was dying to buy a vegetable print dress… I wanted aubergines, but D&G is a bit above my budget, so I found solace in a lovely tomato print skater dress from New Look. Topshop also had a dress with the very same print, which I bought and returned as I found the NL one nicer!!!
I also got some pastels from H&M: a nude lace pencil skirt, a mint green and a nude top and shorts; most are from their Conscious collection, which makes them extra nice, and I am sure (weather permitting) I will wear a lot!!!!
Amongst the purchases are also a couple crop tops from New Look, one with ethnic inspired print, to wear with pencil or long skirts.
However, the star buy here, for me, were the spike bracelets, also from New Look; at £3.99, I couldn’t help but purchase the silver and the gold!!!!

The fact that sun has been out (although temperatures are not that high) has put me into a spring mood.
I have hit the shops hard and bought lots of lovely pastels…Got lovely cream shorts and jacket, flowery shorts, a mint green lace top and a cream lace top, all from H&M. From the spring/summer12 trends, the ones I am into the most are definitely girlie, with the lovely pastels and monochromes – to be honest, I have been a big fan of black and white for a long time! I am also loving shorts at the moment!
These are a few of the items I have bought recently…What about you? What is your favourite spring trend?
p.s – I have been really rubbish lately, have 2 lovely Nails of the week posts to add, and time has been so short… will post them when I get to Brazil, as I have 2 weeks of holidays!
A culprit of the dirty feet curse
I am finally into maxi dresses – it did take me a long time, tried a good 3 years ago, when the trend first made a come back, but being 5’2″ makes it really hard for me to find a maxi that doesn’t double up as a mop.
Well, I got a sewing machine, and now nothing can stop me (even if hemming my own dresses takes a couple hours just to mark mark the hem on myself!) I got a good half a dozen!
What bothers me now is the fact that I seem to develop extremely dirty feet when I am wearing maxis and flats, a dark, dusty streak that builds up when I wear for a full day. It is really horrible and I don’t know what to do.
I couldn’t bring myself to post a picture of it, it’s horrible – and now I decided I will not leave the house wearing the maxi+flat combo without a third addition: wet wipes!
