A holiday, a day out and a new arrival...

I thought I'd do a bit of a catch up post, including some recent What I Wore mentions, it has been a while and you know I like a good natter.

After getting settled in our new house, we managed to book ourselves a short break to Dorset, camping. Whoa, wait a minute, don't raise your eyebrows - yes I like to camp. In a tent. Although I do insist on having an electric hook up! The weather - predictably, but disappointingly - was very mixed, although mainly dry, and we only got one beach-worthy day. Still we had fun and kept ourselves busy for six days visiting castles and cute little villages, riding steam trains, painting Poole pottery, eating out and even visiting a little boutique in Poole called Primark (sad isn't it!)

One beach day
What I Wore: Dress, Primark, belt, vintage

James and I, tourist central!
What I Wore: Tee, H&M, scarf, Accessorize, cardi, Boohoo.

 Ahhh, also you may notice I am, sort of, blonde again. Yes, about that. I had this sudden urge a few weeks ago to have bob-length blonde hair and to be able to use my collection of extensions, so I'm gradually having it lightened, and I'm growing it. So it is sort of peachy here, and a bit shapeless. Mmmmmm! I am under no illusion I will, at some point, get bored of it and have it short again, but I just fancy a change at the moment.

Just over a week ago I went to Silverstone Classic for work, so took my Dad and James along. It was a fab day out - so much to see, including some celebs! The weather was mixed so while watching one of the races we absolutely froze, in fact, shortly after the below picture was taken!

 Smiles at Silverstone
What I Wore: Denim shirt, River Island, cardi, market, scarf, vintage.

Finally, and most importantly, I've had a busy couple of weeks because we've welcomed a new addition to our household...a kitten. Eight-week-old Fizzy (so named because we brought her home in a Diet Coke box) has been with us for two weeks now. She is a little terror and I love her to bits. Although she does like to walk on the keys when I try to blog!

No kittens were harmed in the taking of this photo!
So there is a whirlwind tour of the past couple of weeks to bring you right up to speed. I won something the other day which will help me with a new hobby I'd like to pursue, so I'll tell you about that in an upcoming post. What have you all been up to? Holiday? Lovely summer events? Anyone got any cat related tips to pass on to me t help me in my new role as 'mum'? 
Much love,


  1. Ahh Fizzy is cute!!
    And your holiday looks fun, love the pics, and your hair looks fab even if you are growing it out and going back blonde, still looks glam with red lippie.


  2. Fizzy is beautiful, what a face. I would so love a cat... maybe one day.

    So pleased you're finally in your new home and that things are moving forward. Shame it's been a rough week with the tech, but I'm sure you'll get there.

  3. Lovely photos! And how cute is your kitty!!
