Honey's I'm home!!

Well helllooo you lovely bunch of ladies, I'm back from my little jaunt (which by the way, did not turn out as planned at all, such is my life, but i had a super lovely time with hubs anyway!)
And first off i would like to say thank you so much for all your lovely words about my 2 year Anniversary post... when i posted it i never expected so many people to comment, but your words really made me smile so much... you gals are truly a wonderful bunch of people! So big thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Secondly, am i glad to be back. Being away made me realise what a home body i've become! I used to be a little traveller and enjoyed going anywhere and everywhere ( i used to be a travel agent) but getting older and having kids has made me realise i like being with my family at home.. i may moan that i dont get to go away much any-more but really deep down i kinda love it. I like my home, my bed and my wardrobe

Vintage blouse bought from the lovely Marisa in her Vintage etsy shop Ally Hoot Vintage.
Vintage bag: Charity shop (£3.00)
Vintage Brooch: Anniversary pressie from Hubs
Skirt: Miss Selfridge sale (£10)
Shoes: Poetic Licence ( via Very)

Now i just need to say how lovely is is to find a vintage shop that sells sizes that accommodate a curvier girl! So often i try to buy vintage and the sizes are teeny tiny! But Ally Hoot has sizing that fits me like a glove, i've already earmarked a few more pieces, Marisa  has truly fantastic taste and its great that there is vintage out there for all!

This brooch is one i've been after for a while, and whilst me and hubs were shopping in Cardiff we spotted this in a lovely vintage shop... hubs bought and i was thrilled. Another one to add to the ever growing collection!

Right then folks, i am off to go eat some thing yummy! I've indulged too much lately! Diet starts tomorrow, right?!

Have a lovely evening/day and i'll be back tomorrow with the winner of the giveaway,will draw tomorrow evening (british time) so you've still got a day to enter!
Good luck!


Ps if you fancy seeing a little more of me today i'm guest posting over at the lovely Lauren Ella blog. I warn you; the legs are out like milk bottles and the dress is a tad short!!
