Tote of the Week: Let The Adventure Begin by Alphabet Bags

Tote of the week

The Let The Adventure Begin tote bag from Alphabet Bags seemed a good choice for Tote of the Week what with the UK just about to enjoy a 3 day weekend. Hurrah! What are your plans?

I’m really hoping for a creative, social and lazy weekend. We’re off out for dinner tonight followed by a horror film fest back at ours. Tomorrow I’ve got lots of blogging stuff to catch up on, then it’s BBQ time with the neighbours; the first of the year! Let’s hope the weather plays ball as I’m in need of little Vitamin D, and a few drinks.

Sunday and Monday will mainly entail long naps, food, walks, food, films and blogging. And a little more food thrown in for good measure.

You can catch me over on Instagram and Twitter in the meantime. Have a great weekend!

P.S On the hunt for a new tote bag? Take a look through my previous tote bags featured.

Wardrobe Details: Fenn Wright Manson, New Look and Lotus Shoes

My relationship with clothing has changed dramatically over the years. When I lived in Leeds I would stop by my favourite clothes shops frequently, on route to Jumbo Records, and end up picking up two or three items of clothing that I would wear once or twice, and then forget about. You know how that goes.

Nowadays when I buy clothing I really have to LOVE it. It has to be something that makes me feel great, that I will get constant wear out of, again and again; even if the price tag is higher. That’s why I have a super happy relationship with high-waisted jeans, colourful dresses, crop trousers, Breton tops, denim jackets and dungarees. Oh, and brogues, loafers and ballet pumps of course!

But of course trends do pop up on my radar (I’m in a jumpsuit-quandary at the moment) and my eyes begin to wander. Lately I’ve been coveting shirt dresses and my friends over at Fenn Wright Manson kindly sent me this delicious dress for me to try (and fall in love with).

Sheer sleeves, silk trim fabric and pockets (hurrah!) make this dress a new wardrobe favourite, and because it’s a really versatile piece I’ll get lots of outfits out of it too.

Here I’m wearing it as a jacket alternative for lazy sunny evening jaunts, transforming a casual outfit into something smarter for the evening. To finish it off, I teamed the shirt dress, jeans and top with my white loafers and black tote bag to give it a fresh and modern feel, perfect for weekend pottering. How many days till the Bank Holiday?!

At Home: Bathroom Details

Our bathroom is the smallest part of the house so we keep it pretty simple in terms of decor. Plants and wooden accents fill this small space but I think there’s room for a little more greenage. Time to invest in a few hanging planters perhaps?

Our latest addition to the bathroom is the Dallas Cabinet Mirror from Pebble Grey which we love.  Pebble Grey offer a wide range of illuminated and non-illuminated mirrors but I think this simple and clean cabinet is perfect for our small and modern space.

The OH is getting pretty handy with the drill now; it only took us a mere 20 mins to install this (and a bit longer to fill it with lotions and potions!). Sometimes small DIY projects make the most impact I think, do you like?

The OH has his heart set on installing fountain taps, ever since we visited Ox Pasture Hall Hotel and one day, once we have saved a few pennies, I’d love new flooring and a fancy shower (separate shower is behind me in these pics); things to add to the never-ending DIY list!

Have you done any small DIYs at home lately?
