Well hello. Here we are again. To be honest, I can't believe I'm here again either. Can I keep up this blogging lark? Who knows?

Friday Five (1of 5) Ooh La La

Primark Sandals (in store currently)

I popped in to Primark this week and bought some gold shoes. I technically have no need for gold shoes as I don't have a social life which requires gold shoes anymore but I wanted them because they are a perfect dupe for these ....

The Real Deal - Rouje Lina Sandals

Those French girls get me every time! And at £12 they are not to be sniffed at seeing as the Rouje ones are 189 euros (I don't know where the euro key is on my keyboard😜). They do only come in a wide fit and I ended up sizing down to a size UK3 instead of my usual 4. Not great for girls with skinny feet but hey, you girls with skinny feet get to wear other types of pretty shoes don't you?

Friday Five (2 of 5) Bargains Galore

I love the end of January because that is when the best bargains are to be had. In the last week or so, I have bought a £1 scarf, a £15 parka, a £5 washed cotton single bedset. and a Zara coat for £20 down from £80. Today I spotted that Uniqlo have just reduced their cashmere to £39. I did order myself a v neck in a size XL which sounds really big for me but I ordered a black crew neck in a medium before Christmas and it wasn't generous. Fingers crossed and we'll see. 

Friday Five (3 of 5) Enough

One of many.

I had a really good sort out the other day of my clothes and shoes and at the end of it, I had a huge pile of clothes that I still liked. And a huge pile of clothes that I no longer needed, fitted in to or was just not in to anymore. But it was good to reacquaint myself with what I've got and what I've realised is I've got a lot of pretty white tops. Please shoot me if you catch me buying another pretty white top.

Friday Five (4 of 5) Cardi

I came across that pic on IG and saved it. I just loved the colours and how simple it all is. And then this week, I came across a really gorgeous cardigan in Marks & Spencers which stopped me in my tracks. It's from the Autograph section so not the cheapest but it really is lovely. Currently mulling it over, currently mulling it over because I want to look like her up there. And the rest of the outfit, we probably all have something similar to make up the outfit but I do hear good things about those M&S Per Una jeans (which are supposed to be mega flattering) if jeans are not your best friend at the moment.  Speaking of which ....

Friday Five (5 of 5) There's Always Tomorrow .....


I'm sure I'm not alone in this but I have to say - most of my jeans don't like me at the moment. They don't make me feel good and much as I love a buffet dress - dresses don't do it for me in the winter. I don't want to buy any more jeans - I just want to fit back nicely in to the ones I have and like. It's not too much to ask but something's got to give and it just so happens that it's not my jeans. But February is a new month and therefore a new start. And once Chinese New Year is out of the way and the various birthday celebrations of a few friends is out of the way, I'm good to get on board with my sensible eating. Come to think of it, maybe I should start in March ... 


Last Note :

  • Stay safe and stay warm this weekend!


  1. Love this format! You have a great eye. Love hearing you have lots of clothes in your closet that you love. I'm the same.

    1. Well I seem to have a fondess for pretty white tops in the summer and with the summers we have over here, they don't exactly get over worn so they get dragged out every year and are still in perfect condition. And one white pretty top is very much like another at times and so they're worth hanging on to. The things I really need to get rid of are relics of my past from when I was a different shape, not a mother and was working. I'm such a hoarder.

  2. You struck gold with them there sandals, lady! At times like these I really lament not having a primark close by ;)

    1. I practically swooped on those! They just make me happy - they spark joy!😀
