It has been a lovely few days and we are only just approaching mid week, i hope the rest of the week continues this way. but i guess not every week starts with your 28th birthday and lots of cake 🙂 I spent Monday with my lovely family and best friend and drank lots of Toffee-nut lattes and ate way to much cake. Then in true Rachel form i fell down the stairs! Yep! I am possibly the clumsiest person you ever did meet (unfortunately i seem to be passing that legacy on to my son, poor blighter!) and after the most relaxing bath that hubs had drawn for me where i had sat and read my magazine for a good hour i must have been too chilled as when i got out i slipped down the majority of my stairs thankfully only bruising my elbow, back and arse! Every time i sit down my left bum cheek is soo painful,haha! oh dear. Seriously, what a present to myself on my birthday!
In the olden days (over 6 years ago) when Paul and i first started our business together, we used to go everywhere together, I’d often sit in the car and go on deliveries with him and we’d chat and what not. As roles developed and things changed i spent less time on the road with him and more time in the office and lately even in a new job! So today when we went out on a few business-y errands it was really nice to be just like we were 6 years ago. We stopped in on our way back home when we saw this incredible view. It was so freezing and there was even a very fine dusting of snow, it made me think i may be wearing a lot more knitwear and big coats and retire some of the dresses for a little while haha!
I have seen these glitter type boots everywhere at the moment, they are in the magazines and all over the blogosphere. Normally i don’t succumb to glittery anything’s as I’m not really a sparkly glittery type of gal. But that all changed when i tried them on in New Look recently and they fitted like a glove and had 50% off! Making them an absolute bargain at £12.49!! Suddenly all I could think of was the endless possibilities of outfits with these booties! It was love at first boot 😉 And with Christmas coming, a bit of sparkle seems appropriate in my eyes!
My lovely sister gave me this beautiful dress for my birthday! She’s so good. What’s bizarre is that I’ve actually been on the look out for a nice cream lacy dress for weeks, without telling her either. She just so happened to think I’d like it, which of course i do! Its the loveliest! And has sleeves… bonus!!
