Listening to: Hay Baby- No Doubt
Whoop to having a job which doesn't require working bank holidays!!! I've never had one off before so today feels extra relaxing, and the weekend will hopefully be filled with the mammoth task if all the DIYs I've been neglecting.
As an extra celebration I've drawn the winner of my birthday giveaway...
I honestly wish I could have given it to everyone who entered- which lead to a nervousness hovering my over the generate button and the ecstatic feeling when the number came up as SOMEONE WON!!! And a little dance when it was revealed who. :) if it was any other winner I would have been equally excited.
Remember I mentioned I bought myself a "congratulations on my new job" present, well I bought two dresses and here is the first. FYI this window in on front of I managed to fall into and there's cacti growing on the sill. One tall perfect to stab you centre back the other at bum hight. The cacti are ok, I was suddenly a lot more energised.

For once I'm not wearing lipstick (!!!) Partly because I forgot but mostly I just didn't feel like wearing it for once. Now I feel like I look completely naked.
I'm wearing two jackets again to keep warm rather than throw on a fur again. I love tote bags you can easily put them in your bag and you have an easy shopping bag; but also make a good casual bag. This tote was given out to visitors at London Fashion week by Boohoo and I love the simple stripped print.
My dress was bought from h&m and feel in love with it at first sight. I ran across the store and snatched it of the rail and didn't even try it on I just bought it. It's got an amazing cut out back but the only small thing that I didn't like was the square cut. If you're thin it will look stunning but if you're like me and have curves it needed to come in at the waist- so I simply ties the straps together at the back.
I've obsessed over a ribcage printed dress since I saw Iron Fists floral wish bone dress. It's sold out, but when it was in store it would never have fit me- it was too sung around my chest. Their not available from Iron Fist but are on eBay here. Iron Fist also sold a sequined dress, also sold out and I can only find on eBay.
Kreepsville 666 also do a beautiful ribcage dress I love (but worried it wouldn't fit). Since buying my dress from h&m I want it.
