Well, I've now been home for more than a week, so figured it was time for a quick update!
So, welcome to the the 45th post from little ol' moi :)

It's taken me a whole week to catch up with my blog reading - & that's without any commenting or anything (apologies for being even more rubbish than usual with that)

Here's just a couple of pics from my time away - I may well do a proper Paris post, but I don't feel like it now for some reason (this is going to be another of my randomly put together posts I'm afraid..)

Ok - that's your lot for now!

Now, I'm sure you've noticed I don't 'do' outfit posts. So I'm just going to show you a couple of snippets of a recent outfit, to show you my current favourite colour (still):

Love this colour. Even though it's such an Autumnal colour, I still can't get enough of it. What do you think? Should I be putting these pieces away, ready for Autumn/Winter again? Gotta be honest, I just wear what I want, when I want. And I love this colour, regardless what season it is!
Those pics have just reminded me actually, of a necklace I bought a little while ago, the same colour:

Had forgotten all about this! (Btw, not that it matters, but I didn't pay £7 for it!)

I'm actually wearing one of my favourite necklaces in one of the above photos. Would you like a closer look?

It was one of my asos sales purchases a few months ago. I love it. It's so easy to wear - goes with near on everything! Very quickly became one of my go-to pieces.

Speaking of sales - I placed an order with Dorothy Perkins earlier today.. They had an extra 10% off their sale items, so figured it'd be rude not to!

Here's a sneaky preview of a couple of the items:

Was definitely influenced by the fact the sun's been shining recently - aren't these items nice & summery?!
Also ordered some chinos & a couple of dresses + some more jewellery - but I'll show you them another time..

Think I'm going to leave this there for tonight.
Hope you're all well - thank you for continuing to read my blog & comment, even though I'm so incredibly rubbish at getting back to you. I will try my damndest to do better!

Take care,

So, I haven't been around for a while - again I know, I know..
I even missed my one year anniversary of blogging - which was the 17th Feb, if you're interested. I am still going to do a giveaway at some point though - I've been collecting some bits & pieces in anticipation of it, so it will be going ahead sooner or later.

I've lost a few followers in my absence, which is always a bit sad - but also must've gained a couple along the way too, so hi :)

I don't even really have an excuse for my absence - just generally, being busy, pretty much covers it!

This is just going to be a quick & pretty random post really. Just to remind you all of my existence!

Current nails =

Which is:

Can't really make my mind up on this one. It's not very 'me' at all. But I haven't hated it. So it's ok! It's had lots of comments too actually, so yeah, I'll definitely sport it again at some point, but it's not one of my favourites. Nice for a change :)

I've been buying rather a lot, as per usual. Bought a lush blouse & trousers in the New Look sale today, but just looked on the website & they haven't got a pic for me to show you, so you'll have to wait to see them.

Ooh, I know what I can show you. My new necklace - arrived yesterday. From asos mens.

Honest opinions welcomed!

My Mum is concerned that while I have a lot of jewellery that could be described as 'quirky', this may be seen as 'serial-killer-quirky' - her words, not mine!

I love it nonetheless! And my 2yr old nephew was pretty impressed with it, purely because I "can break down doors like Fireman Sam".. Fair enough!

I placed a rather large order from Matalan the other day - first time I've ordered from them. Was quite impressed. Got some right bargains! Which I'm sure you know by now, is totally my favourite thing to do in the world. Here is a sneak preview of one of the items I received:

Not that I ever update all that much anyway, so you probably wouldn't have noticed - but I'm away for the next week (as of tomorrow).. I'm on a school trip, with the 6th Form. To Disneyland, Paris! Hugely excited! (Yes, I'm aware I'm an adult..!) We've also got a day actually in Paris, where there's an Eiffel Tower trip planned, as well as a walk around & shopping :)

We're leaving tomorrow evening, & I've not packed ANYTHING at all - so that's my plan for tomorrow! Getting my arse in gear. Wish I was more organised..

Will definitely update sometime when I'm back - don't miss me too much! I apologise for the flying visit.

Take care,
