Bunnies and Bows


Hey lovelies... Nice weekend? Hope so! i've had quite a nice one! just made (and ate) a beautiful quorn curry and now im just settling down for the evening with a cold Corona.... pretty sweet!











Jumper: Very (about 2 -3 years ago)
Teal Skirt and shirt: Next
Bow: taken off a handbag that i once wore to a wedding... handy as its just what ive been looking for!
Wedge Booties: Dorothy Perkins about a year or so ago.

so folks... these are the bunnies and  the bow. I love this jumper, it comes out every winter now and it still makes me cheery.  This is also an attempt at pattern mixing, something i admire on others but very rarely do, so i'm dabbling in this area.. how did i do?
Funny, i wore this outfit, minus the jumper, a few months a go and hated it... the skirt gave me a mum tum (ok it didn't give me one, i already had it, but it totally emphasised it which made me and my mum tum sad!) But i wore this to the shops yesterday and loved it! funny, the bunny jumper made the whole thing come together for me.
And yes my bow is wonky, but i was really conscious of stabbing myself in the neck with the pointy pin and just thought, "that will bloody well do!!!!"
Also... (again) excuse the hair... i have had one hellova week! I pulled a muscle in my neck on Thursday morning.. I was in agony! I'm only just starting to not yelp out in pain every time i turn my head. But i could not for the life of me do my hair... the pain was too much! so its been the dragged through a hedge backwards look for a good few days now. It's getting to the point where even the brush is looking scared. And one of my colleagues asked (sarcastically) if i'd had my hair done.. nice,ha! (note to self... get him back when least suspecting!!)

So on that note lovely people i will love you and leave you.. 
We're about to watch some Dynamo... have you guys seen him? You tube him if you haven't (hes a magician for those wondering) Seriously, he blows my mind! incredible!

Take care all!!
