Zebras!

Hey Hey chickies! Half way through the week, and ugh I have this stupid icky head cold thats making life all blurry and not in a good way! I'm struggling to complete sentences and cant stop sneezing. Hopefully today will be the last day of it and a good night sleep tonight will ward it off. Anybody got any good cold remedies? At this point in time i will give anything a go! 
Least the sun has showed itself today!Hurrah!!
And don't hate me, but i already fell off the no spend wagon. I know, i know! Bloomin' useless aren't i! But when i saw this cute orange dress with cute little zebra's all over it, it was love at first sight! I mean teeny tiny zebras, how could i resist? (back on it starting now!!)












Dress & green shoes &necklace: Peacocks
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
Sunglasses: River Island
Wicker bag: Vintage

So feeling icky buying a dress for myself makes me happy. It's my cold medicine, its my cheer up remedy!
Let me tell you, its nice to not be wearing red, white, blue &mustard. I wear those colours a lot of late, they're my no brainers. So orange and green is a nice welcome change for me! I wish i had an up-close of those cutie zebras for you all, but we kinda rushed these pics. Paul is in agony (back again) and i had no makeup on hence the sunglasses staying well and truly put on my face (it was quite scary beneath them)
Ok, i've moaned enough! You go have yourselves a lovely day!
Take care and see you soon

Ps the lovely people at Sainsburys Bank, Money Matters blog gave me a lovely little write up here! How nice!!!! :)

  15. In love with your zebra dress, I 100% understand why you broke your no spending rule! I love how you paired it with green too, its bright and happy but still really cohesive.
    I hope you feel better soon! Drink LOTS of water and fluids!

  16. I love zebras! I don't think I'd be able to pass up this dress either. For your cold, eat lots of garlic! It really helps! Minced garlic with butter on toast is pretty good. You can also make a tea of sorts with lemon, honey, and garlic, but strain the garlic before drinking it. I think it truly helps! Hope you feel better very soon!

  22. Lol dang that non-existent will-power!! I wouldn't have lasted long either. And your dress is SO adorable!! Sorry about the cold. I know how that goes. I've been sick 3 times in the last 5 months since I started working at a bank handling money all day. My colds always seem to last forever. Hope you feel better soon!
