Beautiful New Purchases

Just a few teaser snapshots of some of my recent buys, this top is from Littlewoods & I love all the little details!
My Domino Dollhouse dress♥ It needs some altering before I can wear it, as it is a bit big. The 3x sold out before I could buy it, so I went with the 4x, thinking I could always make it smaller, which is what I shall have to do!
Have you bought anything nice recently?

Shooting Star Nail Art Tutorial

Photobucket
You will need:

  • 4 (or more, if you wish) different coloured nail polishes)
  • Nail art pen (recommended for ease, you could try a tiny paintbrush & a 5th colour if you haven't got a pen) Photobucket 1. Start by painting your nail in the base colour of choice. Photobucket

2. Carefully paint a stripe diagonally across the nail in your 2nd colour. Photobucket

3. Repeat with a 3rd colour, underneath the 2nd colour. Photobucket

4. Then, very carefully, paint a thinner line inbetween your 4th colour between the first 2 stripes you made. Photobucket

5. Using your nail art pen, carefully draw a star at the top of your nail.

6. Topcoat, if required, & you're done!

Repeat for all nails & you should should end up with a pretty manicure like this one!

Doggie Photoshoot

A little while ago, I decided I wanted a portrait of all 3 of our dogs, Button, Tallie & the new addition, Dillon! I had naive ideas of how they were all going to sit there nicely & pose, (haha!), but soon realised how difficult it is to get all 3 behaving for a picture!
I got plenty of "outtakes" like these, with them playing around/blurred, but I kinda like them anyway because they show off their personalities (yes dogs do have personalities :P)
They all posed quite nicely individually, but together...no! In the end I got help in the form of my Mum, loaded with treats, although it still wasn't much easier!
But eventually, after 114 frames, I got the shot I was after, & how cute are they? Definitely worth it, I think! I have so many pics of our dogs, but only usually individual ones, they are so hard to get a pic of!

Have you ever tried to do something like this with your pets? Or am I just a dog obsessed weirdo, haha!

Cute Bits & Bobs

New purse from Accessorize - didn't really think it through though, it's rather large & doesn't fit in a log of my bags which are mostly small. Oops! Cute though!
More stickers♥ & a cute bow necklace :)



I am now in sunny (ha!) old North Wales, should hopefully have some nice pics to show you when I get back. I have a few more scheduled posts coming up for you whilst I am away, including a nail art tut, so keep reading!

Goodbye

I've been packing today (who else hates packing?), ready for my biannual trip to North Wales. Yay for holidays! I don't have much access to the net up there, but I have scheduled a few posts so you won't miss me too much :P We're off tonight, so see you in 2 weeks!

Simply Be

How many of you have shopped with Simply Be? They stock a large range of Plus Size Women's Trousers, skirts, dresses, cardigans, etc! I actually shop there quite often, they stock quite a few decent brands, like Frock n Frill, & Joe Browns, all going up to a UK 32.

I have my eye on these 2 dresses at the moment, I particularly love the lacey one. They are both by Frock n Frill, my favourite brand featured on the site. They have recently done a range with Zandra Rhodes too, & whilst not to my taste, it is great to see designer collaborations with plus size brands. I've also heard they are opening their first stores pretty soon, in Bury & Liverpool, shame they're not near me, but I assume if those 2 stores do well then they hopefully with expand & open some near/in London!



Disclaimer: This post is in partnership with Simply Be, however all opinions are my own & I will never be paid to promote any brands I have not tried (& would recommend!) myself.

Cheer Up

I meant to update over the weekend, but I've felt rather unwell over the past 3 or 4 days, & honestly barely left my bed all weekend :( Still not feeling that brilliant, but my sister came home from her holiday (in Disneyland Paris), bearing gifts, which have cheered me up a little :)
Cute Minnie socks, a Belle brooch, a Marie pen & a Minnie glass ornament.
Thanks Charlotte♥

OOTD - Bear Ears & Pocket Scarves

Mac - ASOS Curve (from last year) // Fur Bear Hat - ASOS // Boots - ASOS // Scarf - TKMaxx Rings - ASOS /Evans
Hi again everyone! Thought I'd show you my outfit from yesterday, we went to the park again, & took little Dillon with us, in his Fundle. It was pretty cold & wet, so we didn't go for a really long walk, but our other 2 dogs still enjoyed racing around in the water. Tallie even chased some ducks upstream, which she said was great fun! Weird creature!
I didn't get any pics of my outfit underneath - it was too cold for that! But I wore my Evans Lace Peach Skater Dress, for those of you that care :P
Did you do anything nice at the weekend?

An Addition to the Family

Hi Guys, meet Dillon!
Yes, we got a new doggie! Now we have 3 wonderful dogs. I am so happy - any dog person knows the happiness they bring. And Dillon is so adorable, hehe! Our other 2 looked like him when they were puppies, not quite so small, but just as cute!

Dillon is a Chihuahua x Toy Poodle, so he fits in perfectly with our small furry family! You've seen them before, but we also have Button, a Maltese, & Tallie, a Shih Tzu x Lhasa Apso. They aren't too sure about Dillon atm, but Button was the same with Tallie when we first got her, & now he loves her so much, so it won't be long before they all love each other dearly!

Charlotte also came round to say hello - we got Dillon yesterday, so she stayed over so she could meet him! He is a friendly little thing & not a scaredy cat like Tallie. He went out with them on their walk today, in a bag slung around my Mum's shoulders (because he isn't allowed outside on the ground until he has had all of his injections), & loved it! He was fascinated by the world, hehe!

Now there'll be one more dog photobombing my OOTDs, not that I mind of course:P
