I'm working on a little something

Hi everyone

Apologies for the lack of posts lately, it's been a hectic few weeks.

I am currently working on something though - a friend recently asked me to help out with finding some cheap Winter essentials so I'm currently putting together a massive list of things you need to add to your wardrobe for the new season.

Watch this space!

Oscar Oscar

So I've trawled through as many red carpet photos as I can in the last 2 days to try and work out who I thought was the best dressed on Oscar night and I think I've got my pick. Drum roll please......

Congratulations Ms Nicole Richie!
(This may not come as a surprise to some!)

While I agree with a few other bloggers about her eye make up being a little bit too futuristic, that dress is just to die for. And well done to Ms Richie (or her stylist/hairdresser) for chosing to go with a simple up do so as not to detract from the dress - just divine. Sometimes I do think the make up artists go a bit overboard with the nude lipstick (give them just a HINT of colour, please!) but that leads me onto my second pick for best dressed....

Enter Maggie Gyllenhaal.

You have to give this girl credit - she always goes a little left of centre with her fashion choices but pulls them off every time - and this Oscar outfit is no exception. I love that she chose a print, I love that she went with some simple earrings to compliment it and I absolutely LOVE the shade of pink lipstick she topped off the ensemble with! You really can see the confidence in Miss Maggie, she's just a gorgeous creature all over.

While there were a few other mentionable outfits (and some unmentionable!), these two were by far my favourites. Well done on chosing something timeless and elegant ladies.... applause now please!

Happy birthday to me

Birthday's simply don't get any better than a big turquoise bag sitting on your kitchen bench waiting to be opened when you wake up...... oh Tiffany's - how I love thee.
Happy 28th Birthday to me today.

What to wear: Things I'm lusting after

Today's title is actually a little incorrect - it's should really be What to Buy. Because instead of an outfit, I decided to pop up a few things I'm currently lusing after.

Since my man asked me yesterday what I wanted for my birthday, I thought I'd show you a few things I'm currently lusting after in the fashion and furniture department (I hope you're reading this babe, hints don't get any bigger than this...haha).
