Ready For The Weekend



Hi Everyone!

Ready for the weekend? I hope you have something good planned? I had a heavy weekend last week partying. A friend of mine is getting married and so I attended her Hen do.
Hen do's at our age?!! Why not?!!
It was good to catch up with friends that I hadn't seen for ages. This weekend I'm hoping to get out in the garden and get my hands dirty. A chilled weekend hopefully.

This is just a bits and pieces post. Stuff that I've been wanting to share the past month or so. And what special offers are available out there if your shopping this weekend.

I've recently been posting "Ten Under Twenty" through the week on my social media pages. Ten items under twenty pounds (who doesn't love a bargain?)
My readers on the social media sites have really been enjoying these. You have to be quick though because some items sell out really fast.


Here's my Ten Under Twenty 


There's already a couple of items sold out! My favourite item on the board has to be the Espadrille Black sandals from F&F. I recently purchased this pair below. I forgot how extremely comfortable they are! I wore them in my Neutrals post here and I'm tempted to get the black ones.




They have a "sensitive sole" and they are oh so comfortable! for £16.00!! here

Something else I've been meaning to mention...


Looking for some colour inspiration?





Have you ever looked at Pamela Graham's website? I have been lucky enough to be featured a couple of times in the new book that's been published. I'm quite confident in knowing what colours suit me and which one's that don't but if you're looking to educate yourself on which colours to suit you most take a look at Pamela's website The site is so full of inspiration and well worth a look.



There's another lady that I want to mention that has just published a book too.


"who doesn't love to relax with a "Chick Lit?"

Huge congratulations to Suzy Turner for writing this. I do like to relax in between blogging and sit myself down and read a girly book. I'd love some advice on how Suzy manages to fit everything into her busy routine. Style blogging and writing books!

Take a look for more info about the book here

I had a fabulous day in the West End of London


I was delighted to attend the Reiss AW17 press event earlier in the week. I can't tell you how gorgeous it all was. Lots of gorgeousness to come from Reiss, a high-end high street brand that I dribble over from time to time. A bit pricey for me although for a special occasion I would definitely shop there, but I do like to shop their sales!

I'm trying to get out of my jumpers at the moment and I'm sure you are too, so I will be sharing what's going to become available for winter later. There is 10% off all online orders though if you wish to have a nose here I will keep you posted when they have a sale on.

That's it from me. I will leave you with some special offers. I hope you have a great weekend!

XO Laurie

  1. Your wedges look great and the cost of £16 is even better!
    Pamela Graham is doing my colours as we speak, I have had different assessments over the years and am a bit confused about my colour choices. My mum featured in one of her books!
    Have a great weekend

  9. A hen night sounds fun. You haven't posted what you wore! Those black espadrilles look pretty. I agree with the comments. Is it sad to say I think they're a bit high for me and my dodgy back. I think it's sad.

    1. Actually Anna I wore the outfit from the Five Over 50 challenge!! A bit boring for you to see that so soon again!
      The wedges actually feel like your wearing flat shoes because of the platform. And the cushion lining makes them feel like slippers! Not worth the risk for pain from a dodgy back though xx

  10. Am still in love with those espadrilles ...
    Sounds like you enjoyed the hen party. I'm invited to one next Saturday for a 30 something. At the time of the invite, I declined citing my age. I just don't have the stamina these days. The hen emailed last night asking me to change my mind. Reading your post, I feel I may have to!

  28. OMG I can't believe you mentioned me, Laurie! Thank you! I've been really late catching up on my favourite blogs this week... I have been busy studying more yoga. I chuckled when you said you don't know how I do it - but the fact is, I don't have a day job per se. I write about two of three books a year, teach a little bit of yoga (I'm still just teaching my pals for free until I feel ready to start advertising), write blog posts once or twice a week, and then spend most of my time online reading about how to be successful LOL! However, I'm super excited at the moment because I think I've finally found my yoga niche - which is why I'm studying at the moment!! Well, which is why I'm supposed to be studying lol!
    Thanks again for the mention, sweetie. You really are the best!
    Huge HUG
