Ashley And Laurie’s Link UP

Hi Everyone.

Another super busy week has flown by! Thanks to all that linked up last week, there were some really interesting posts.

This is what I’ve been up to…

A bus ride into London

Selfridges at Cristmas


I hopped on my local bus to get into the city to meet Ashley of Lazy Daisy Jones to go see some press events. We always meet at Selfridges and I snapped a few photos of the dressed windows for Christmas. I’m always excited to see the extravagant window displays on Oxford Street at this time of year.

I’m very lucky to be able to hop on a bus and be in the city within a quarter of an hour, Although it’s getting extremely busy now!



This is what I wore for the day. Easy and comfortable, plus a big bag to hold umbrella and bits and pieces that I may need for a long day out. We went to five events on the day, all scattered around London and I can tell you my feet were absolutely banging on the bus home. I haven’t walked so far in a long time! It was worth it though and a fun day was had. I’m sure I will fill you in on the day via a blog post at some time.

But I have just got myself some sensible medium height heels for these occasions…

Link-up Etiquette

“We don’t like rules, so anything goes…so play nice and be polite” 

However, because you are getting two links for the price of one, all we ask is that you leave a comment on both our blogs?  Afterall you wouldn’t go to a party and ignore the host now, would you?

    I love the outfit you wore for your day out in London! Fabulous aztec print jacket. I wish I could get to London a lot quicker and more cheaply, I’d love to go to more press events.

    That’s my sort of outfit Laurie. You look fab in it. Well you know that I’m one for comfortable shoes, hence my putoutedness when I met up with out blogger friends and I felt like the accompanying frump. Your sensible shoes look very glam. Right off to see what this offer is!

    I bet being in London this time of the year is just wonderful. I know what you mean about heels hurting when you walk a lot. You just need a comfy pair of Ugg boots; although, they may be too casual for the events you were attending! Happy Holidays!

    I love those burgundy pants on you! Great fall look!

    Wowzers, Laurie! Looking amazing in your classy-casual outfit! The jacket is precious. Your gorgeous legs get a chance to be justly showcased in those metallic waxed jeans. Great choice for a day’s outing in the town. Hugs, x.

    You’re a brave woman, going to city this time of the year. I try to avoid shops as much as I can in the run up to Christmas, can’t stand the crowds andcthe craziness.
