I thought I was doing so well, yet I have managed to not post for 2 weeks - again! Honestly, I'm rubbish!

Right, so this is going to be a total hotch-potch of things, just because I'm in the mood to quickly post something.

First things first, the nail varnish from my last post, for the people that asked, was this:

I believe it's shade 'Lauren'.

Here's some pics of a random outfit I wore to work a few days ago:

And I wore these rings:

Both of which have previously featured on my blog.

Oh, and if you're interested, the nail varnish (although it looks rubbish in these pics) was:


I've gone a bit eBay-mad recently. What am I talking about? I'm always eBay-mad! It's a real problem. I buy SO much stuff. It's like I almost think things don't actually count, because they're cheap - forgetting that cheap stuff still adds up (& believe me it bloody adds up!)

But anyway, these have arrived in the past couple of days:

(& there's more en route!)

Ooh, & may as well continue with this for the timebeing.. The nail varnish I'm currently sporting (if you're interested) is:

(Turquoise - shade 19, if memory serves me correctly)

Ok, my 'wanting to post' mood has now drastically waned, so will leave it there for now.
Will try & be back soon - have still got loads to show you..

Take care,


PS. Big welcome to my new followers (& hi of course to existing ones!)
Do please feel free to make yourself known, introduce yourself - I will warn you now that I'm rubbish at the moment at replying to comments, but I do try & get back to people - promise!

Ok, so this is (hopefully) going to be a relatively quick post for me - I'm not very good at short posts, I can never really see the point!

Thought you may well (or more likely, not, but that's fine!) be interested in seeing the results of one of my online orders. I'm still waiting on loads - I don't know what's happening with the mail at the moment, but I'm not impressed, gotta be honest! (Seem to have been waiting particularly long for asos & New Look - anyone else having problems with them..? I'm getting impatient!)

Right, so this post is going to quickly show you my sales purchases from:

These items were purchased with free delivery, & using a 10% off code - although, I was too keen, because now there's an EXTRA 10% off sale items.

This was reduced to £5! What a bargain! I literally could not buy it. It's grey - tick. A cardigan - tick. £5 - tick. Mine - tick!

This was £7. Figured it'd be quite a versatile purchase - working just as well with jeans as it would with a skirt for work. I like versatile things. They make me feel more justified in buying them!

Very excited to spot these babies in the sale - I've been after some grey brogues for AGES now. I may have even mentioned it on here. These are basically EXACTLY what I was looking for :) Got them in 2 sizes, because I was worried in case they didn't fit - & guess what?! The size 5 is too small & the size 6 are too big. Gutted!
Gonna try them again though & see which ones I'll be more able to live with... I will make them work. They have to! I need them in my life!

This beauty has gone pretty much straight to the top of my 'favourite dress' list. (If I had a 'favourite dress' list that is..)
I love it. The colour, the shape, everything. It's gorgeous. And really flattering on, which is always a plus!
My only slight problem with it is that it's too short for work. But then again, so's most things I buy/try on, so..! Can't wait to wear it - love it!

Ok, so that's the end of my Dorothy Perkins order - it was the smallest one I'd made, but it's the only thing that's arrived!

Just a quick shot to show you my current nail varnish & new necklace:

The nail varnish is an asos one - it's probably a bit darker than it looks there, the flash has brightened it up a bit.
The necklace is one I got from eBay - it's great. I wore it a couple of days ago & got quite a few comments from my students! My nephew (who will be 2 on Saturday) was quite impressed with it - he was looking through them & I was asking if he could see & he said "no, just pretend" - so cute :)

See ya guys - will aim to be back soon(ish! You know what I'm like! But I am trying..)

Take care,

"I hope that this'll make you notice.."

As always, thanks for all the comments guys :) And although it's not been quite such a long absence between posts this time, thanks for sticking by me!

So, I guess I should probably say: HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Welcome to all my new followers - was well chuffed to see I'd got over the 200 mark, even with my hugely unreliable posting..

There's so much for me to say/show you that I don't even know where to begin. I haven't got pics of my Christmas presents or anything - to be honest, I didn't get a huge amount this year. Since Christmas however, I have ordered a huge amount of things online. I originally thought the sales were rubbish but then, on second look (when everything was marked down further!), I found quite a few things I wanted.. so am currently awaiting deliveries from: Dorothy Perkins,, eBay, asos, New Look, Priceless Shoes, HMV.. May have got a bit carried away, but oh well! Had some extra money in my December paypacket, so why not treat myself?!

I figured I'd stick to something I always used to show you on my blog though, & haven't done so much recently - my rings :)

Here's the first of my new rings:

It was from one of the concessions in New Look - how adorable & 'me' is that!? Could not resist.

I got this one yesterday:

A bargain in the Accessorize sale - 90p!

This next one I actually bought a while ago, but haven't worn yet (had forgotten I'd bought it), so figured it still counts as new!

Picked that one up in Primark - like I said, it was a while ago now. Glad I found it though, will definitely have to debut it asap!

Then there's these:

(which I wouldn't actually wear together, just for the record!)

The big turquoise one, is also one I bought a little while ago (the same day as the Primark one actually) - it was in the sale in Warehouse & cost the bargainous price of £2! It very obviously had to come home with me :)

It's annoying me that you can see the tags on this, but I'm too lazy to go & take another picture, so I'll have to put up with it.

The other one, I picked up today when I was out with my Mum. She actually spotted it - well done Mum! It was from Store Twenty One, which used to be QS - I hardly ever go in there, but was glad I had today - this one was reduced to £1.75 :)

So yes, new followers, you may have picked up that I have a bit of a 'thing' for rings! The cheaper the better, generally speaking!

I, like lots of people, am back to work tomorrow.. Part of me is dreading it (mainly hearing the alarm in the morning - urgh!) but part of me is actually looking forward to it - as I've mentioned on here before, the routine is good for me. And I do actually enjoy my job, it's just the thought of going back puts you off! I'm sure you know what I mean..

Ok, I think I'll leave it there now - I have lots of things to share with you in upcoming posts, including more details of what I'm actually receiving in those deliveries (if anyone's remotely interested..?)

So, bye for now :)

Take care,
