OOTD – Outfit of the day, Mixed Prints

I really love my “Outfit of the Day” today.  Past seasons collide in this outfit with an AX Paris floral dress that is a black base colour with beautiful floral print in reds, purples and yellows.  I have matched it with a red polka dot cardigan which I think actually works, especially with my red heels.  It’s a mix of prints and patterns but it’s a lovely vibrant look that suits a day such as today when it isn’t as sunny and will also work in Autumn.

I managed to get my AX Paris dress on ebay.  I missed out when it was originally for sale, so to pick this dress up for £8 was an absolute bargain.  This dress doesn’t need any necklaces due to its gorgeous print however I am wearing a selection of bracelets that are mostly from New Look.  I would love to get some red bracelets splashed in there too when I find some I like.

I’m a RapidLash Tester…

Last week I noticed that RapidLash were looking for testers of their product.  I’ve never really tested beauty products before for fear of being allergic to them however when I saw this notice on twitter my interest was there straight away.  I have short eye lashes.  In fact, I’d go as far to say I have really short, stumpy eye lashes and no matter what mascara I use they never look any different.  I applied to be a RapidLash tester and was accepted!

Day Twenty-Seven: The Blogger Challenge (A letter to your readers)

Day Twenty-Seven The Blogger Challenge – A letter to your readers

Firstly, I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who reads my little space on the Internet.  When I first started my blog I didn’t think anyone would be interested in what I had to say and the thought of an outfit of the day post terrified me!  Once the first outfit post was done I guess the nerves subsided and I would say I am now a little addicted to it and I post a lot more regularly now I know you are reading!

Day Twenty-Six The Blogger Challenge – Something you read online

This isn’t technically reading, but I have an obsession with checking the weather forecast online!  I check it a few times a day and i’m not really sure why! It’s become a bit of a novelty in our house with Mr FH calling me a weathergirl! lol

Day Twenty-Five: The Blogger Challenge (Something someone told you about you that you’ll never forget)

Day Twenty-Five: The Blogger Challenge – Something someone told you about you that you’ll never forget.

I’ve been trying to think of a positive thing for this challenge because as you probably know you’ll remember most of the negative things forever!  The most positive thing someone has ever said about me is Mr FH near the beginning of our relationship when we were dating every day!  He told me I was the most beautiful girl in the world, which I don’t agree with and at the time I thought he was just saying it to be nice, but now after 3 years together I genuinely believe what he said to be true in his opinion.  I’d never agree with it! lol :)

OOTD – Outfit of the day – butterflies and denim

My “Outfit of the Day” today is a really pretty look.  I must admit I haven’t accessorised this outfit with any jewellery because i’m in a bit of a chill out mood.  This outfit features a gorgeous dress from Simply Be which is my opinion looks so much prettier in real life than in the photos on their website.  I imagined this dress to be quite dull in colour but it is vibrant and really pops out.  I absolutely love it.  It has an elasticated waist which makes it really comfy and I am wearing the size 20.  On the Simply Be website, this “Enchanted Print Dress” is still available but in very limited sizes, only size 12 and size 24 but it is an absolute bargain at £14!

Day Twenty-Four: The Blogger Challenge – Your top 3 worst traits…

I found this challenge really easy because I am well aware of most things that are annoying about myself.  The worst trait I have is interrupting people who are talking to me.  I do it all of the time to Mr FH and it REALLY irritates him,

Day Twenty-Three: The Blogger Challenge (Things you have learnt that school won’t teach you)

Day Twenty-Three: The Blogger Challenge – Things you’ve learnt that school won’t teach you.

I’d have to say money management for this challenge.  I’m not sure if every child is the same as I was but when I was at school I had no concept of how much things cost.  I knew my parents paid for the house each month but it wasn’t until I moved out when I was 19 that I found out how much things add up!  Mortgage / rent, electricity, council tax, phone, broadband, food… I couldn’t believe how much I had to spend on basics each month for a one bedroom flat!
