A Coat and a Bow

What i love about winter time is sometimes all you need for an outfit is a really great coat. No one really needs to know whats underneath, you can just get away with a nice coat and a pretty bow! Easy peasy!

 These were taken over the weekend, we’d gone out for a little walk and some fresh air. Sometimes 5 people in our little home can be a leettle bit overwhelming. .. just think 5 lots of washing, ironing, feeding etc plus 5 lots of coats hanging around, shoes everywhere, well, you get the point. I find going out in the cold air for a brisk walk really is good for the soul. The kids burn off some of that energy, and i clear my mind from all the clutter. ‘Tis good stuff!

  It has been a such a great weekend! I was honoured to Co-host The Totally Awesome Blog Hop on Saturday and it has been amazing. So far 112 ladies have joined in and mingled with other like minded lovely bloggers. It is just wonderful to see you all interacting in our awesome on line community! There is still time and it is open for 19 more days so head on over and join in HERE! I’m planning on visiting all 112+ blogs and sharing the comment love.
And  if you’re new or haven’t yet, don’t forget to enter the Max C London Giveaway HERE! £25 (about $40!) they have some GORGEOUS dresses!

I bought this beautiful bow a couple of weeks ago from the lovely Rebecca of Manzanita, she is one clever gorgeous lady! Its quite large and i love that! It made my simple coat outfit perfect!

The winter berries are a sure sign that autumn has passed, all those golden leaves are departing and all that remains of the bare branches for a long cold winter. I was driving home at 6pm Saturday evening and i got caught in a huge hail/snow downpour. I live up a hilly valley, i couldn’t believe it, the streets were white and i had to drive so carefully up the hills to my house. I think we are in for a long cold winter here. Is it cold where you are right now?

Well ladies, i am in for a super busy week here. I hope to be popping in again soon as i have some super yummy recipes to share with you all! Winter.. its all about the food for me!

Take it steady you lovely lot! xxx

    That coat is fabulous! We're supposed to have our first snow on Thursday and right now I'm excited, but I'm sure it will get old pretty quickly. Looking great as always!

    You look like you've lost weight (in more than one photo so it must be true!) – I hope stress isnt hitting you too badly. That colour pink looks great on you x

    I've definitely been guilty of using a jacket to cover up some incredibly lazy outfits lately. If I know all I am doing is a walk with the dogs and some shopping then all I want to do is wear my massive jumper and some jeans. Not very stylish, but nice and warm. That coat is lovely, such a great shade, and the bow is adorable. Looking lovely as always xo

    I love the hair bow – it's fab! I've been making my own mini ones to give as Christmas gifts 🙂 will have to blog them soon.
