Sunshine c/o My Legs!

Happy half way through the week lovelies. 
How's your week going so far? Mines not as bad as i first anticipated. Works been manageable (so far), had date night with hubs and bought some amazing new make up. I'm not very good at make up at all! however this new stuff is pretty amazing, will tell you more about that soon. Have you been to anything nice?  
Something i'm not happy about.. the weather! ( i know i talk way too much about the weather and i actually study the form and regularly check weather updates on multiple sites.. i'm a weather geek!) Its so cold! And windy and wet. Luckily after work yesterday i managed to snap these pics just outside our warehouse shutter, which incidental made quite a  nice contrasting back drop.



Wind!!

it was too cold to take my coat off so thought id just be a flasher  impersonated instead ;)


Can anyone tell me how to make a fringe look good in the wind!!?

My prize from the lovely  Amy at The Cameras Lying



Dress & Bag: Primark
Coat: & Bright yellow tights: Matalan
Red Clogs: Lotta from Stockholm
Necklace from Amy, which i won (woohoo!)


Let me tell you i had some funny looks towards a. These tights and b. me wearing the tights. I kinda like them. I did feel rather conspicuous all day, but i mostly sit with my legs under my desk anyway. Just a few trips to the printer and warehouse and people in my work are kinda used to it now.
I like playing with colours. Needless to say i step out of the bedroom in the mornings an hubby looks me over and either rolls his eyes or grins holding back laughter.  He has to be seen with me and never moans at least ;-) (today i'm wearing smurf blue tights!)
The dress would look just as nice with black tights, its so easy to wear and was only £13.00. Bargain!!
In other more exciting news! I found out through Twitter yesterday i have been nominated for


MAD Blog Awards 2012

YYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To be nominated someone has to obviously put you forward. So if it was any of you lovelies, thank you from the bottom of my heart. The fact that i've been just thought of amazes me and fills me with such happiness. HUMONGOUS THANK YOU!
I'm not really sure what happens next, i think the list gets whittled down to finalists and then the winner. But honestly just to be put forward is amazing. (thank you again)

And finally i was wondering if i could ask you lovely ladies a favour. I dont like asking as you turning up here on a regular basis to come see lil ol' me is plenty but, I've entered a competition where i have to gain facebook likes on my picture
The prizes are shopping vouchers and would love to be in the running. Possibly impossible to win at the moment as the current ladies in the running have 300+ likes but, if you could spare30 seconds of your time to go an like this link for me i would love you forever. If i win there will be a definite give- away from the prize vouchers too! So if you could pass it round and get your mum, dad, nan and dog to like it, it would be much appreciated
I feel like i'm on a one woman mission today! What my mission is, who knows but i'm on one!!
And here's a big cheesy grin and thumbs up from this lil man....
"You guys get a thumbs up from me!!"


Well have a Fab Wednesday and i will see probably Friday if not sooner!!

  13. I happen to love this outfit and your bold tights! I recently jumped on the bold tight bandwagon myself, and I get crazy stares at work, but I don't really care :)

  14. The print on your dress is so cute! I'm normally not a fan of coloured tights, but they go really nicely with this outfit.

    Sincerely,

  15. That outfit totally rocks!! My hubby is the same, he's accepted my wild love of colour now.. (with the odd eye roll in my direction) and the fact my hair is different colours all the time. My son is the same, just totally accepts it. Mind you, I dress Ethan in lots of colour and wacky stuff as well!! x

  17. The cutest print ever on that dress and yes orange tights is quite bold but you totally pulled it off. Good for you for braving it out. Your little guy is adorable.
    Is it possible for you to forward the exact link of your photo we can 'like'?
    Thanks,
