Shop Your Stash

Hello and welcome to a brand new blog challenge which has been devised by the lovely Hollie from Pretty Big Butterflies.

Welcome to the Shop Your Stash Challenge. This is all about finding a gem in what you already own and creating a blog post on it. This is to let go a little of the stress that comes with being a blogger - even if it is just once a month. Rummage through your beauty products and climb through those clothes draws. You might surprise yourself!

So as you can see from the introduction the idea behind this new monthly challenge is to look through all the things we already own and put something together.

Like many other bloggers I have a wardrobe bulging with clothes but I always seem to favour the same outfits so it was great to have a spuddle through and see what I could find.

I decided to fish out this old top from New Look which I found on a sale rail in the January sales last year. This poor old top I loved it at first but then just recently on a few occasions it has almost found itself in the Ebay pile which lives in my bedroom! I gave it a last minute reprieve and wore it yesterday and to my delight found that I enjoyed wearing it!

Throwback Thursday

Hello and welcome to this weeks edition of Throwback Thursday.
Today my trip down memory lane is the television programmes of my childhood and youth, so lets see how many you also remember.

So to start off we have Bod which I loved as a child and my favourite character was Aunt Flo as whenever she came in she would twirl round! 

Next up is The Flumps, who can forget Pootle, Posey and Grandpfather Flump and I bet you are singing the theme tune in your head whilst reading this!! 
   The amazing and quite trippy Jamie and The Magic Torch they just don't make them like this anymore!!         

Did anyone else watch Moondial based on the book by Helen Cresswell? This was on in 1988 when I was thirteen and totally captivated and scared me all at the same time!

            A slightly more obscure one this time The Children of the Dog Star which I think was from New Zealand. I think it was about aliens and was quite strange and also seems to be a programme that alot of people don't remember!                           

Finally I end on what I think is still one of the funniest moments on television ever- yes Morecambe and Wise with Andre Previn (Mr Preview) I defy you not to laugh!!! 

Sorry I couldn't mention more as there are so many things I watched as a child but these were all my favourites so please enjoy!!

Yours Clothing Swing Tunic

The seasons are finally on the change and we have started to have some warmer weather and for me that means digging out my trusty summer flats and leggings and moving away from tights. (Thanks to Primark for their fantastic 100 Denier tights which saw me through the winter!).

Thanks to the lovely Debz from I'm a Wannabee Princess I managed to nab a deal via Living Social the other day for a voucher to spend at Yours Clothing, the voucher was £9 but allowed me to spend £20 on Yours Clothing (just checked and the deal is no longer there :( ) so I had a cheeky spend.

I went with the Striped Swing Tunic as you know me I love a good swing dress/tunic!!! As you can see from the photos its longer on me than the model online but then I am only 5'4". I did size up which has made it quite loose as sometimes I need the boob room but to be fair it means it will be cool and comfortable during the summer months and is long enough that I could wear it without leggings.

I wore this outfit to work and was lovely and comfy all day so I hope it will be a regular feature of my summer wardrobe.
