Let's Escape This City and Live on a Farm (and giveaway winner)

Helloo lovelies and welcome to the weekend. 
Wowzers! It's been a long old week.I'm so happy it's the weekend
Even though day wise it doesnt make a whole lot of difference when you have kiddo's but hey, I'm gunna not think about work at least for a few days which definitely brings a smile to this face.

It really is a good job i took these photos last Sunday. Holy cow it's like monsoon season here! I live on a town which is quite literally built on a hill, so there's streams of rivers running down the streets and lots of getting very wet! Oh rain, rain PLEASE go away!

Blazer and Tee : Next
Jeans: Clothing at Tesco
Shoes: Irregular Choice
Bag: Matalan

When i first bought this blazer i knew it would get a lot of wear... an investment piece if you will, but its like the yellow jeans and the blazer were MFEO (made for each other, we used to write that on our school books when we were kids; Rachel hearts......., MFEO & SWALK! ha !) But seriously, they are. Plus this tshirt is one of my fav's  "lets escape this city and live on a farm" Paul and i dreamt about doing just that for years. And still do. One day..
And the shoes? Oh the shoes. I'm a huge Irregular Choice fan, they seriously create the most fun shoes around. These have added to my ever growing collection (i have 6 pairs so far!)  These are beautiful, funky and fun... i'm in shoe love!!

Anyway are you having the most wonderful weekend? What have you been up to? We went to my niece's 6th birthday party today on a farm.  We didn't let the rain spoil our fun. And it was really good, Seeing Neo's face light up at new things and mimicking all the animals is probably one of the best things...ever.

And finally, thank you all for entering my blogaversary giveaway. I was seriously overwhelmed by all your lovely comments. You guys are really what makes blogging for me. You (yes you) are AMAZING!!
