Quick quick quick post



I know I was meant to show you the new sparkly top today but I had absolutely no time. I'm running out to the pub wearing this, scarf - Liberty, Jeans - MiH and I don't remember where I got my jumper, it was somewhere in America. It is so comfy. 
Anyhoo, got to run, I'll do a proper post tomorrow. 
PS, thank you to everyone who has followed me recently!

It's Wednesday




Today I didn't do much as it was my day off but I had to teach 2 Zumba classes in a row this evening which nearly killed me! 
The outfits a simple one, Skirt - Zara, shirt - River Island, shoes - Office and my glasses are from 
Oscar and Fitch. You don't usually get to see my glasses because I only wear them I'm reading or on the computer. I love them a lot though. 
I bought a new top out a charity shop today so will probably show you that tomorrow - it's SUPER sparkly.

Horses





YAS! It was sunny today which meant that I could took my photos outside. I was working though today which meant that I didn't really get to enjoy the sunshine
This is my new shirt which I've been waiting ages for, it's by a designer called Soaked in Luxury. I'm wearing it with my jodhpurs from Zara, hat - Asos and a horse bag to add to the horse theme which is from Urban Outfitters.
I'm over quarter of the way to my challenge of trying to get 100 followers by my 100th blog post (this is blog 68). Please help me!

Beyonce








Today I leapt out of bed, ran to a shop and bought the new Beyonce album, 4. It was it's official UK release today. The album is AMAZING, I didn't think I could love her anymore but it happened. We all know that Beyonce is my hero so today I took some photos inspire by Beyonce, including rollers in the hair like in the 'Why Don't You Love Me?' video. Shorts - Topshop, shirt - Primark, Bra - La Senza.
Also I was very surprised and excited to find Beyonce on the cover of Dazed and Confused July issue. I'm sorry about the images, but my scanner is broken so I had to use my camera. There is an amazing interview with her that you should read. 

Orange orange orange


HOLA! I'm back from Barcelona. Hope you all had fun reading my mum's blog posts!
Today's outfit is orange, shoes from Office, jeans - Topshop, shirt - vintage and orange lipstick from Mac. 
Barcelona was amazing and I will get some photos from the trip uploaded soon.
I'm really trying to get to 100 hundred followers by my 100th blog, so I would love it if you would follow me.
P.S, If you were wondering, mum had a great time at the Take That concert

Meg still away and Mum struggling with blog!

Huge apologies about the lack of photos, I've followed the instructions that Meg left but I cannot seem to get any photos onto the blog. Please keep following for my sake or she will blame me for not getting 100 followers by her 100'th blog!
Still undecided what to wear to the Take That concert. Would love to wear something pretty and summery but as it is in an outside stadium and the rain clouds are dark I don't think that's an option! Perhaps wellies and jeans are the way forward, hope Robbie doesn't mind!

Still first day in Barcelona

Maybe it did publish post but no photo!  Oops! I'll try and get the photo.

Meg's first day in barcelona

Hi everyone, I'm Meg's Mum and in charge of the blog for the next 3 days.  Meg did leave drafts for me to put in but when i pressed publish post nothing happened, so i'm going to have to write something myself!! Sorry Meg! Today my outfit was chosen as it was the only thing ironed! My top came from sainsburys and my jeans from marks and spencer, my feet are in a comfy pair of fitflops. As you can see Megan and I have different tastes in clothes and a different budget! Anyway now I must go and choose my outfit for tomorrow! One sleep until the Take That concert !

Barcelona





Today was another miserable rainy day, but I don't really mind as today I'm off to Barcelona! I'm staying there until Sunday and am so excited to get some sun. My mum is going to be in charge of my blog for the few days when I'm gone. 
Today's outfit is a dress with a jumper which I've worn the wrong way round as a cardigan, I almost prefer it as a cardi!
This is my 62nd blog post and I have set my self a challenge to have 100 followers by my 100th blog. So please help me out and follow me if you're reading. Thanks!

Satchel



A quick photo shoot before work. Today I'm wearing MiH Paris jeans in white, McQueen scarf (as always) and my satchel from the Cambridge Satchel co. If you are ever thinking of buying a satchel the Cambridge co. do the original and best. The website is pretty amazing. The only downside to a satchel is that you can't really fit much in them. None the less I love mine a lot.

Marc by Marc Jacobs




Ta da. An anti-climax for most of you I imagine, but I'm really excited. This is my new Marc by Marc Jacobs t-shirt which I have wanted for so long. Sadly they only has it left in large, so I'm having to go for the over sized look. Wearing it tucked into my pleated skirt. I wanted to wear it with my green belt but I couldn't find it. 
Today at work we got a new designer in, Fabiana Filipi, and I'm not sure about her. I think her stuff is nice but lacking a 'wow' factor which most designers have. Anyway take a look at her things and let me know if you agree. http://www.fabianafilippi.com/

Harvey Nichols




Todays outfit is ridiculously comfy, it's like wearing pyjamas. Something happened to me today which has never happened before, I was walking in a car park and a girl leans out a car window and asks me where I got my jumpsuit - brill. 
I also treated myself today and bought something out of Harvey Nichols which I have wanted for ages because it was in the sale. I've never bought clothes from there before so I'm really excited but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out what it is.

Military Jacket


Today I was faced with the age old question, what to wear when it rains?
I find it so difficult to find anything even remotely nice to wear when it's pouring with rain. In the end my outfit is not very sensible for the rain but I like the military look so it's ok.  
Tomorrow is my first day off in a week and I'm very happy about that!
Have a good weekend everyone xx

Armani Coat




This is today's outfit for work. At work today I fell in love with this beautiful grey cashmere coat by Armani Collezioni. I only need to find a spare £350 and it's mine. I might play the lottery tonight! In this photo the collar is done up but it can also be undone and then it looks really slouchy. Tricky... The rest of the Armani pre-collection is also really nice and I don't usually like Armani. 
Also please note my mum's gorgeous handbag (Hermes) which I have been stealing for the last few months - it's love.

Feathers




I apologise for not posting yesterday, I was so busy with work I didn't have time. Anyway, this is the outfit I wore to the second day of the fashion awards. I love these feathers, although they remind me of the film Black Swan which creeped me out a bit! 
The Fashion Awards event went really well and was attended by Samantha Cammeron, Dame Shirley Bassey and Lulu.

Scottish Fashion Awards






As you can see from the photos, the hunt for an all black outfit today went well. 
Today I was working at the Scottish Fashion Awards and it was amazing. The fashion show at the event is clothes and jewellery from Swarovski crystal so as you can imagine the pieces are stunning. There are a couple of gowns that were made from so many crystals I found it difficult to lift. This summer I am working with a stylist called Lindsay Campbell and that's how I would up getting a job at the event. Today her, myself and a man who works at Ted Baker in London, were working with the directors and designer of Swarovski which was an amazing opportunity but also very scary. 
Today we were doing a lot of work for the press, tv and newspapers and then running through the fashion show. Tomorrow is the event itself, so I'll be working there again.

Birds



Today our sale started at work so it was an early start, luckily I had this lovely bird print shirt from River Island to put on. I love this shirt and I teamed it with my J Brand Lovestory and my box bag from Zara.
Tomorrow and Wednesday I'm working at the Scottish Fashion Awards and I need to wear black. Did you know I don't own a single all black outfit or even a LBD?! It seems crazy. Today I ran to every high street shop I could think of in my lunch break and couldn't find anything at all! (This did break in my new shoes nicely though!) The search resumes tomorrow morning.
I started back teaching Zumba today which is great because I've been missing it. 
I watched 101 Dalmatians the other night for the first time the other day and I don't think I ever appreciated Cruella De Vil before. Her clothes are stunning! A new style icon I think.

BBQ Day










Last night my mum took part in the moonwalk - walking a marathon at night wearing a bra, to raise money for cancer research. So today she invited all the girls she walked with round for a bbq. This is my bbq outfit. I'm wearing a vintage shirt, MiH jeans turned up and my new shoes. 
This wee guy is a snail I found at the bbq. 
Also, this is my new wallpaper, I am in love with it. 

A late night post



Today was a super busy day so didn't have time to post. I also didn't have time to pick and photo tomorrows outfit, but I did manage to take a couple of photos of my outfit for going out tonight. I seem to have developed a love for blurry photos!
I know I've shown this playsuit before but before tonight I hadn't ever worn it out. For those of you who haven't seen this playsuit before, I made it. Winner. 
It went down pretty well on the night out, except when I needed to go to the toilet because the hook and eyes are tricky. The night out itself was not much fun though, the DJ wouldn't play Beyonce or Rihanna or Britney or anyone I love...

A little bit pretty






Yesterday I showed you todays outfit and it was only today I realised that was a bad plan. So again I'm showing you tomorrows outfit - I think I might be a blog that shows things before they happen. My blog could be like a dress rehearsal
This dress is lovely but it only suits hair up, so obviously I had to wear the matching hairband. You might recognise my belt...yesterday it was a bracelet. The shoes I'm wearing have been stolen from my sister - but she doesn't know yet. 
I think if I attended garden parties I would wear an outfit like this, however I don't so I'm going to wear it to work tomorrow. 
I'm off to watch Cinderella and drink tea now!
