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.

Style Yourself Confident With Pamela Graham

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

    Awww Your wedges are so cute, great price!
    I sure wish I could wear even a bit of a heel, my back wont allow me to anymore.
    Thanks for sharing your blog on #OMHGFF this week!

    Sounds like your selling is going well. 🙂

    • May 21, 2017 / 6:40 pm

      Small change! Us bloggers never get paid enough xx

  4. May 17, 2017 / 8:26 pm

    I've recently rediscovered wedges and love them!

    Love your feature of sharing about Ten under Twenty.

    It was a treat to visit here today. 🙂

      Thank you Karen! I'm so pleased you like it, and I hope you return xx

    Love your wedges Laurie, great colour that will go with everything 🙂 Thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays.

    • May 17, 2017 / 9:53 pm

      Thank you Claire. They are so comfortable! xx

    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

      As I said I don't know how you do it all! That's more than enough! I only do a bit of hair and beauty through the week, the rest of my time, well I'd love to know where that disappears to! Your more than welcome for the share Suzy xx

    • May 17, 2017 / 9:55 pm

      Good idea Lizzie! They are super comfortable too xx

  10. May 16, 2017 / 6:59 am

    Lovely espadrilles…I have some similar to those but I put them away at the end of last summer and can't find them now! I love the stripe top with the flared sleeves.

    • May 21, 2017 / 6:36 pm

      Isn't it gorgeous. Sold out quick though!

  16. May 15, 2017 / 7:07 am

    Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm always in for a bargain! My favourite item must be the espadrille sandals too, and with a sensitive sole, what's not to like? xxx

    • May 21, 2017 / 6:35 pm

      Your very welcome Ann. Glad your like myself and like a bargain xx

  17. May 14, 2017 / 2:39 pm

    Stopping by from Happiness is Homemade link up. I love the espadrilles as well. You've made some good picks.

    • May 14, 2017 / 5:06 pm

      Thank you Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by xx

  18. May 13, 2017 / 9:11 pm

    Oh Laurie, now I shopped the striped shirt from next 🙂 It's so cute and in my size available. I cross fingers it fits me 😉
    This shoes are amazing Laurie!
    I wish you a wonderfull relaxed sunday! XO tina

    • May 14, 2017 / 4:29 pm

      Oh fabulous Tina!! Let me know how you get on with it. It's so lovely, I think it will look great on you xx

    • May 14, 2017 / 4:26 pm

      Sorry! I was replying to Amy and it jumped into your box Jacqui! Hence the deleted reply!
      Do give them a try on Jacqui, they are sooo comfortable xx

    • May 14, 2017 / 4:24 pm

      I'm with you on that Amy! We all need time out xx

  19. May 12, 2017 / 10:20 pm

    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!

    • May 14, 2017 / 4:20 pm

      Yes do change your mind Mary!! Have a nap before hand, and get glammed up!! Your never too old to party!! xx

  20. May 12, 2017 / 4:47 pm

    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.

    • May 14, 2017 / 4:14 pm

      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

  21. May 12, 2017 / 4:28 pm

    All I can say is …… get the black ones Laurie because those are gorgeous. They look super comfortable and so wearable.

    • May 14, 2017 / 4:10 pm

      Very tempting aren't they Michelle!! Good to see you back for a visit xx

  22. May 12, 2017 / 3:57 pm

    So many great deals and pieces! The black espadrilles immediately caught my eye. I have a pair of neutral espadrilles similar to yours and have been wearing them quite a bit this spring.

    • May 14, 2017 / 3:57 pm

      Thank you Jennie. Mine are so comfy, they have a cushioned sole. It's like going out in your slippers!! xx

    • May 14, 2017 / 3:55 pm

      Thank you Jamie. Who doesn't love a good deal? Thank you for stopping by xx

  23. May 12, 2017 / 12:52 pm

    weekends are quiet here for us in dubai, we prefer going out in the week, but i drank way too much at a ladies night (5 free cocktails) on Tuesday and took 2 days to recover. The beige trousers are great, i need light weight clothing living over here

    • May 14, 2017 / 3:48 pm

      Haha. That would be me hanging! A ladies night sounds exciting? And I would be wearing as little as possible in your temperatures! Thanks for popping over xx

    • May 14, 2017 / 3:41 pm

      We just need the right weather here in the UK Jodie xx

  24. May 12, 2017 / 10:03 am

    I love the Wedges. Amazing price too. x

    • May 14, 2017 / 3:38 pm

      Thank you Sarah. Who doesn't love a bargain? !!

  25. May 12, 2017 / 7:57 am

    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
    Gail x

    • May 14, 2017 / 3:29 pm

      Oh fabulous Gail. I look forward to reading about that then x
