A COUPLE OF BIRTHDAYS AND FAVOURITE FINDS

Hi Everyone
How lovely that we saw the sun for a while this weekend in London? Just for one day I didn't need a coat, it makes everything feel different for me, Does it for you? I wonder sometimes if I suffer from S.A.D and I feel sorry for many of my American blogger pals who are still deep in snow.


                                       Not quite dressed for summer but no coat at least!

There are a couple of things  wanted to mention this week, can you believe that The Sound of Music
celebrated a coming of age? 50 years old! I cannot tell you how many times I have watched that film, with the mother, with my daughter, and I dare say I will watch it with the granddaughters at some time.
The next thing that surprised me was that Grazia Magazine was 10 years old. Can someone tell me where that time went? I remember buying the first article like it was yesterday! and I still buy it today. A good glossy read for a couple of pound.

Here below is something else that surprised me


I am lusting after one of these Hunter waterproof capes for our rain season. I never knew that hunter did other stuff other than wellies, they do bags too. Must have had my eyes shut.

Something I have been on the look out for is a denim shirt or chambray I should say, to go with my flared jeans. I'm thinking all denim and tan accessories with a good statement necklace. I found this one below


This wont only go with my jeans,it will go much further, I'm thinking white trousers or any shorts, when you need to cover up a bit in the sun and then maybe black later in the year. It's from Marks and Spencer here £28.00

Accessories for me this year has got to be a new hand bag, and I fancy an orange one like this

Nice and slouchy with a little tassel here £39.50 Actually there is a lot of things on the Marks and Spencer website at the moment, they have really got it just right for summer this year

And about orange, with the weather being a bit brighter I thought brighter nails were called for!


This colour is from Bourjois A Little pack of four fashion shades called Fashion Show @ New York

What's your take on orange for the summer? will you be wearing it this year, or is there another colour that's your favourite?
But right now it's back to the jumpers and boots!



I was so happy to receive some comments from last weeks post, please leave more!

  1. It does feel great to shed a few layers at last. You cannot beat a good denim shirt so useful, I do like a pop of orange, I've got an orange bag that I will use when it warms up.
