Girl in Orange

 Well hello there ladies, happy mid week. I pretty much have nothing of interest to say today people... thats right i am boring as hell right now. I go to work (a lot) i come home, and i put my Christmas pj's on and snuggle down and watch a film or two. Its a simple life but a very happy one. I'm only slightly unnerved that there's only 13 sleeps till Christmas and i have only a third of my pressies bought and not a single one wrapped. But in true Rachel form I'm sure i will be doing a great impression of a looney woman who's lost her mind, running round the day before trying to get every little thing done!
Oh yes, i can tell you, see this calm face.. it may be the last you see of it until 26th December ;-)

 I bought this dress about 3 months ago. Its just sat in my wardrobe getting over looked every time i make my daily choices. I have no clue why! Its totally my cup of tea, pretty collar, pleated, vintage-y type look and sleeves. Seriously?! what more could a girl want from a dress? (pockets actually... then we'd be talking perfection!)

 Dress: TK MAXX (back in late August)
Shoes: Poetic Licence
Hat& Tights: New Look
Don't you just hate when your belt slips down in photos..!

The row of houses across the river were so cute, they were each little one storey houses but they were each a different colour. What a cheerful little neighbourhood to live in! I'd love to paint my house a really cheery colour.. I'm definitely a brighter the better type of gal (hence my wardrobe !!)
So i will love you and leave you. Wishing you a wonderful day/week...

Don't forget, if you're a mama or no some one who is or will be, i have a fabulous baby change bag giveaway still going on here!

    By the way your 'boring' life right now could be mine, go to work, come home PJs on and watch some films and I am very happy with it too! We're not boring we're just 'chilled' hehe.
