Just went for a little walk around the park, which was suitably full of yummy mummies and polite articulate middle class children called Theo, Millie or Hugo.
If you haven't already, you should check out Vero Moda- not very well known in the UK but quite big in Spain- as that age old favourite Alexa Chung is the face of their new pre-Spring collection. I was quite pleasantly surprised as there are some nice pieces and the prices are much more affordable than Alexa's Madewell range. Also if you go to their shop on Oxford Street it's pretty empty, bliss compared to Topshop.
((I wasn't paid to write this!))

I've also been nominated for several blog awards recently, one from Holly , one from Becca and one from Emily , thank you ladies. I can never really think of enough interesting facts about myself I'm afraid.

My mum found my blog the other day (and read the Mulberry post) - hi mum .

  12. You have some really great pieces in your outfit there. I'm totally jealous to how cute you look in one of those fur hats. I always love them and want to wear one desperately but it's one of the worst looking things I can ever put on my head. I will definitely be taking a look at the Vero Moda. My curiosity is peaked!

  19. I hadn't read any blogs for several weeks and just finished catching up on yours! So refreshing to read a little about what you've been up to and see all the outfits you manage to concoct (seriously, how big is your wardrobe?!)
    You do look lovely though! (I also have to admit i sort of gasped when i saw your bag and excitedly scrolled down to see its introductory post...hope your mom is not too cranky about it though hehe)

    P.S Happy SUPER belated New Years!
    P.P.S Congrats on your new job :D told you things would work out!!!

    O_O How did your mum find your blog?! She must have been doing some serious internet digging! I was so embarrased when my sister found my blog (we umm are not kindred spirits to say the least O_O) i so desparately wanted to delete it! xxx

  36. Hello! I LOVE this dress! I have to agree with you about Vera moda! It's bliss in there. I saw this dress and not sure why I didn't purchase, will need to go back!
    I also really need the arrow head necklace in my life!
    Oh no!! I found my blog saved to my dads favourites over Christmas - I quickly deleted it hoping it was a mistake!

  37. I didn't know they had a bricks and mortar store... Interesting. I always think the quality looks questionable on Asos but it could be the lighting. Definitely one to check out. Hi, your mum. x
