Friday Five Fav’s

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE, I think i can say we officially made it to another weekend, fairly unscathed. 
I’m looking forward to a fabulous weekend. Tomorrow we are painting bags from a tutorial from this lovely blog. Seeing as the UK now has a 5p charge on every carrier bag(even when buying clothes or fast food! Craziness!) I thought now would be the perfect time to get organised, get my bags ready and obviously that involves making them puuurrddyy:)

With the absence of piccies for you today (hubby has pulled a muscle playing golf bless him) I thought I’d show you my Friday Five Fav’s:

New Look currently has a fantastic sale on. I got this dress in store for £9.00! I liked it when it was £29.99 but didn’t buy it. I love it now it was only £9! Looking forward to showing it. I think it needs a nice belt. Suggestions on a postcard.


I finally got round to having my peepers sorted on Monday. I am as blind as a bat and wear contact lenses constantly. When i had neo i don’t think i took them about for about 7months! Horrendous!(i also did definitely not mention that to my Optition) Anyway, I’ve needed new glasses for a while as my currents are scratched to high heaven. I was so pleased with the new Gok Wan range at Specsavers! They have a little retro twist which i love and i also got a new Karen Millen pair also on BOGOF, YAY 🙂


I have serious lust for these boots from Very. Practical, Smart and i really fancy pairing with a classic trench/mac or a tweed style jacket. They should also see me nicely through the winter… maybe payday.


I have a bit of an addiction to scarves and this one would make me happy.. Vintage and price cut! Now also only £9
Devoted to Vintage have some wonderful items.


Last but by no means least, this vintage Fisher Price farm. What can i say, its a classic! It holds a special place in my heart as i remember playing with the exact same farm as a child. I think Neo may still be a tad young for it, but I’m contemplating it anyway (more for me really, i wanna see those cute little animals again)

I also have some amazing things on order from this lovely lady Really looking forward to showing those to you once they arrive.

Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

    Hi There,
    Nice to meet another fashion blogger mommy. Thanks for visiting my blog.
    I like your picks. The dress very cute and the boots look amazing. I love vintage toys too. My mom bless her heart kept a lot of my toys and now I use them as decorations on the high shelves of my kids' rooms and they are old enough they will get to play with them. But very carefully.
