Starting to see some lovely Spring pastels coming through now, love the above from River Island, with a turned up pale blue jean and white top. Hoping Spring comes quickly, I love the change in colours!
Found a school run coat, so not what I would normally buy but desperate cold times call for desperate measures - practical! What a dull word! But this Nike coat was half price in the shop so for £62 I don't feel too cheated. Straight after Christmas and Birthday season in my family, the credit card had to get an airing. I normally only use for petrol and food shopping as get loads of points and clear monthly, but I was in need and it is a small price to pay to keep warm and dry!
I was lucky enough to get some Just Sheepskin slippers for Christmas, on the recommendation from my sister. How comfy are they! No slipping over for me, and I've noticed how much warmer I am just buy having a really good slipper on my toe toes. Only problem is, they are so similar to Uggs and feel so good that I have gone out in them then had to run back in to change!

I went out to dinner with some friends last year and as usual the chat turns to girly stuff. They all struggle to keep a lippy on and were commenting on mine still staying put. I discovered none of them use lip liner! This has been a staple of mine since dot (well ok, a little older, thanks to my Mummy!). I always apply and fill in my lips pre lipstick and gloss. I really rate Shiseido for theirs, but also love my Chanel one I recently purchased. I am interseted to try Clinique's new chubby stick lip balm as I love to use pencils.
Hit TK Maxx for their fab new drop of shoe's. Think All Saints, Zara, even found a pair of Costume National - if only they were my size!
I am now post baby (hence my delay in blogging!) and watching back editions of programmes I've recorded. Particularly a make over series and the presenter has the most amazing wardrobe - serious envy and inspiration to shop. I am living in easy access tops at the moment, once I'm done with my current feeding job, I am hitting those shops. Westfield London, me and you have a day long date in the coming months.
Some of my favorite free store cards with benefits;
Ikea Family - apply on-line, weekly store offers, exclusive to your local store. I love Ikea!
Liberty - sale previews, extra 10% off for card holders, evening champagne events, I would use more if I was a London local!
Nectar - use for pretty much all on-line shopping, you just have to shop via their links to a website, nothing else. You get points like Boots and Tesco. Have used to buy things from Argos and Homebase.
Boots and Tesco - if you haven't already, don't ask questions, just do!
Superdrug - if you use regularly, they also now have a points card
