London Baby!

 Evening all!  A picture based post tonight, it's going to be visual for you!  I spent yesterday in London meeting with some lovely fashion Mummy bloggers.  It was so nice to catch up and relax all day with no time restraints.  A few of us (yes, me included!) branched off for only a couple of hours to hit the shops.  As I do get into London more than some I felt it only right to take up the 'tour guide' role to navigate them to the shops they needed then back to the bar!  It's late and I've set myself a new challenge to shut down and switch off by 9.30pm so excuse the slackness but I will address the ladies by name but tag in their equally fabulous blogs.

Sue & Beth
Helen, Joanna, Kat & Fiona
Sue 'papping' Marlene & Avril
Close up of Avril's fab Accessorize necklace, love it worn over her denim shirt

Sue 'papping' Moi!

'The Hat' (and the coat) are Marlene's but wanted by all!
Uniqlo's very 'Cath Kidston' Tee's (but by Greengate instead)
Their great selection of scarves

Even more impressive was their cardi range - how many colours?! 100% cotton £19.90

Their Orla Kiely scarves were £9.90 - an amazing price

I loved Cos's colour palette, soft pinks and greens

Cos's leather was fab and magnetic closures are always a favourite of mine

And me! I did wear a coat, Marlene might have that picture!
Topshop Baxter Jeans
Topshop Boots
H&M Tee
Gap cardi (£14.99 in the sale - bargain!)
New Look necklace
Balenciaga Handbag

Every time I see myself in a picture at the moment, it makes me want to cut my fringe back in.  So what's stopping me - the maintenance!  But the sound of me harking on about it for so long in my head is equally as annoying so this week I may just nip in to the hairdressers.......

Wish list item this week - Benefit's Fine One One highlighter.  I love the mix of colours and that you can use it on your cheeks and lips is a double bonus.  I am currently using a max powder blush but I do find that cream blushers give more of a glow.  So next time I'm near a Debenhams, my voucher is going on this little 2 in 1 gem.  £23.50.

Must dash, 9.43pm already......ho hum, tomorrow's a new day to achieve my goal!  Night all x

  4. Love it Natalie! Brings back such lovely memories of a great day. I will email u some of the pictures I have of you. Your coat was fab. Also, message me ur address. I was given a Fine One One at an event a few weeks ago. Used it once on my cheeks but it's not my cup of tea. It's like a lipstick so can be sliced for hygiene! Please accept it as a thank you for your excellent tour guiding on Saturday...loved seeing some of the shops we don't have in Belfast. Avril xx
