I own a ridiculous amount, to be honest and every year I want a new one. I have a smart going out coat and a lovely warm winter coat but I can never find a decent outdoors coat that is stylish, warm and tough.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">So when I was contacted by <a href="http://www.curvissa.co.uk/">Curvissa</a> recently about doing a <a href="http://www.curvissa.co.uk/fashion/coats-jackets/_/N-1iZ1z141tp">Coat Review</a>, it was with my outdoor needs in mind that I began my search.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">Parkers are very in fashion right now but if I am honest they either swamp me or are nowhere near warm enough so although a couple caught my eye it was this lovely <a href="http://www.curvissa.co.uk/products/short-tie-waist-soft-shell-coat/_/A-878189_14">Soft Shell Coat</a> that I went for in the end.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">I usually wear a 22 but my previous experience of Curvissa has taught me to size up so I did with this to a 24 to make sure it worked over my bust and I am glad I did as it is only just right.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">It is made of a lovely soft material that feels like it will be shower prof although it does not state this in its description, it is windproof and breathable which is ideal for walking my dogs along the river next to the open fields as it does get pretty blustery around here. The coat is lined with a gorgeous thin fleece which is soft to touch and very warm.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-jWaZVQ8jxFk/VMEXobM5pBI/AAAAAAAAFIA/tjgEPyV8EGs/s1600/DSC02182%2B(1).jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-jWaZVQ8jxFk/VMEXobM5pBI/AAAAAAAAFIA/tjgEPyV8EGs/s1600/DSC02182%2B(1).jpg" height="428" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">The length of the coat is perfect for me as it covers my bum, please remember though I am only 5'2 &nbsp;and one anyone taller it is likely to sit just below your bum the picture of it on the model is a good indicator of its length.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Mk_MWUoLofg/VMEXoPj9XbI/AAAAAAAAFIE/iEV4zer-MzE/s1600/DSC02196%2B(1).jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Mk_MWUoLofg/VMEXoPj9XbI/AAAAAAAAFIE/iEV4zer-MzE/s1600/DSC02196%2B(1).jpg" height="640" width="428" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">The tie waist is a nice feature as it gives shape to the coat which is often missing from outdoor coat.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/--v7yL_C0x8g/VMEXoCC0gQI/AAAAAAAAFH8/ukBB4If80ZU/s1600/DSC02202%2B(1).jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/--v7yL_C0x8g/VMEXoCC0gQI/AAAAAAAAFH8/ukBB4If80ZU/s1600/DSC02202%2B(1).jpg" height="428" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">I assume this is the brand although it isn't called this on curvissa.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TECUfLBxWms/VMEXpzmfAmI/AAAAAAAAFIU/FXtIHkgXknc/s1600/DSC02204%2B(1).jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TECUfLBxWms/VMEXpzmfAmI/AAAAAAAAFIU/FXtIHkgXknc/s1600/DSC02204%2B(1).jpg" height="428" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">The hood is big and feel like it might stay put in the wind as it hooks over quite nicely.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">All in all I am very happy with this coat, its sizing could be a little more generous but otherwise it is lovely and I would highly recommend it to anyone look for a good outdoors coat. it feels like it can cope well with my three biggest dogs jumping up at me with muddy paws when we play and me falling on my bum in the mud which has happened a few times.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">A few other fabulous ladies are also working with Curvissa to review coats and they all look far more glamorous than me, so head on over to their pages and take a look.

When I say the store is huge think French Supermarche, I hate doing my food shop there as instead of 30-40 minutes I am in there for 3 hours and come out spending way more than I meant. It has always had a large mezzanine floor which used to be split between electrical's and clothing but it has been a couple of years since I last visited.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">The whole store has had an uplift and the change is fantastic! the mezzanine floor now has a Cafe which is lovely and the the entire rest of the floor is taken up by clothing, I was in heaven! it is huge, it felt modern, and could have easily been a high street fashion retailer, with excellent posters and mannequins well displayed stands no over crowding and fantastic bright lighting.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">This style of store could easily work in a shopping centre as a stand alone clothing shop not just in the supermarkets. The selection was immense.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">I snapped a few photos which are a bit rubbish as I only had my phone with you but you can get the idea.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

Things are finally coming together and I will tell you all about it in a few post very soon.<br /><br />Even though things have been crazy and this post is very very overdue I have at least looked fabulous during it all thanks to the lovely team at <a href="http://www.firmoo.com/" rel="nofollow">Firmoo</a> who let me choose a gorgeous pair of glasses to review in my prescription.<br /><br />There is so much to choose from it was a really tough decision but it was well worth it as I love my glasses and live in them. Sadly in the time it has taken to get organised the pair I chose are no longer on the site that I can find but I will show you how cute they are and the others that I really loved and still want to order.<br /><br />I have to apologise or the picture quality, I have some gorgeous photos on my camera but my cable for getting them off has vanished so to stop any more delays I have used the ones off my phone for now and will add my camera ones as soon as I have access to a cable again.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both;

It was a nightmare but we made it! unfortunately we ended up being without internet until yesterday due to a mess up with our installation date, this has meant a longer than expected hiatus from the blog.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">I did also have a near disaster, I almost lost my blog address as without internet connection I didn't realise my payment hadn't renewed although I am planing on a slight name change I still want to keep this address as so many people have it and I can still redirect people from it to mine. managed to renew it today so it is all safe now!</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">I am back though and my planned update for the blog is underway I also have a few gorgeous review pieces to show you which I will get up this coming week there and Glasses, LBD's and an amazing skirt to show you which are going to be my staple outfit pieces this coming autumn.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">My blog also sneaked past its 3rd anniversary while all the craziness was going on so I am hoping to celebrate that as soon as I get the new layout all sorted.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">I hope your all well, those who are still reading thank you for staying with me, I promise to be better now I am in a happy place and have a decent internet connection again.&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">Everyone at Plus North this weekend have an amazing time, I am so sad I couldn't make it again this year, moving became the financial priority but I am coming next year even if it kills me!&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">Mhairi</div><div style="text-align: center;">xxx</div><br />Lilybobombslovelylumps.comhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/15682266425739591342noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3013872684408548934.post-64567501465401052222014-08-06T16:41:00.002+01:002014-08-06T16:57:13.906+01:00Saving students money with BTSummer is here and it is lovely to have a break but soon enough I will be back being a student again. When I found out about the new services offered by BT for students, I wanted to share them with you.<br /><br />I now study and live at home so I have to pay for my bills all year round, many students however spans around 3 months a year back at home for the holidays and end up paying for phone and broadband services for the whole 12 months. BT have now introduced a 9 month plan perfect for students which launched on July 30th.<br /><br />There are 3 options available.<br /><br />BT Broadband<br /><ul><li>Save £96 versus the standard price for Unlimited BT broadband (unlimited download usage) with Unlimited Weekend Calls due to BT’s, exclusive to students, 9-month contract for just £16 per month (plus £15.99 a month line rental) <span style="font-size: xx-small;">1</span></li></ul><br />BT Infinity <br /><ul><li>Save £138 versus the standard price for BT Infinity 1 Extra broadband with a 40GB download limit and Unlimited Weekend Calls due to BT’s, exclusive to students, 9 month contract for just £14 per month(plus £15.99 a month line rental) <span style="font-size: xx-small;">2</span></li></ul><div><br /><ul><li>Save £222 versus the standard price for Unlimited Infinity 1 broadband with unlimited download usage and Unlimited Weekend Calls due to BT’s, exclusive to students, 9-month contract for just £19 per month(plus £15.99 a month line rental) <span style="font-size: xx-small;">3</span></li></ul>All packages come with unlimited access to BT Wi-fi, free BT Sport online and the BT SmartTalk app.</div><div><br /></div><div>I have BT infinity at home and love the amazing speeds I get, so if you are in an area capable of receiving it, I have no problem recommending BT fibre optic services. I have had my broadband from other suppliers and just haven't found the service and reliability to be as good. I also love that I have unlimited downloads, my husband and step-son are both gamers online and I dabble in it myself, as well as using a number of streaming services for films and music so we get through a fair amount of data.</div><div><br /></div><div>Other services such as access to 12 million public BT Wifi hotspots, access to BT sports and the BT smart talk app all make these packages perfect for student houses, splitting the costs amongst your friends also makes it even more affordable and great value for money.</div><div></div><div>Being a student is hard enough financially so making savings like this is a huge bonus and not being tied into and annual contract is great.</div><div><br /></div><div>For more information about the Student packages available head <a href="http://www.bt.com/student">HERE</a></div><div><br /></div><div><span style="font-size: x-small;">Small Print</span></div><div><div style="color: grey; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small; letter-spacing: 0px;">1 &nbsp;£96 savings claim based on Unlimited Broadband monthly price on an 18-month standard contract (£8 a month for 6 months, then £16 per month) compared to a 9-month student contract (£16 a month). &nbsp;</span></div><div style="color: grey; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small; letter-spacing: 0.0px;"><br /></span></div><div style="color: grey; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small; letter-spacing: 0.0px;">2 £138 savings claim based on Infinity 1 Extra monthly price on an 18-month standard contract (£8 a month for 3 months, then £16 per month) compared to a 9-month student contract (£14 a month). &nbsp;</span></div><div style="color: grey; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small; letter-spacing: 0.0px;"><br /></span></div><div style="color: grey; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="letter-spacing: 0px;">3 £222 savings claim based on Unlimited Infinity 1 monthly price on an 18-month standard contract (£16 a month for 3 months, then £23 per month) compared to a 9-month student contract (£19 a month).</span><span style="color: black; letter-spacing: 0px;"> &nbsp;</span></span></div></div><div><span style="font-size: x-small;"><br /></span>Please share this with your friends and family who may be going off to uni or maybe have kids heading off.</div><div><br /></div><div>I hope this information is useful to some of you, I personally thought it was a great service.</div><div><br /></div><div>Mhairi</div><div>xxx</div><div><br /></div><div><span style="font-size: xx-small;">*I have asked to post this&nbsp;information on behalf of BT but all opinions are my own.

I have b=never been to any of the big music festivals but I do hope I get to do it one day.<br />I do however tend to go to events like the Strawberry fair and County shows and festival fashion has its place at these events too.<br /><br />This got me thinking about what type of festival fashion I would be likely to wear. I am a very practical person if I am honest and like to think of every eventuality. Festivals to me bring to mind, Spilt drinks, porta-loos and mud!<br /><br />So what does that mean for my choices? well it totally excludes the idea of playsuits which seem to be the festival goers staple this year. There is no worse thought for me than struggling to undo and slink out of a playsuit while trying not to drop it on the gross floor (see I think far too much). This means I am likely to choose separates or dresses which can be lifted up out of the way easily or taken off quickly. &nbsp;Spilt drinks are likely with hundreds of dancing and possibly drunk partying people so there is no way I want to be wearing my most expensive clothing. The chances of your feet being stood on are also high so for me there is no chance that I am going to be wearing my gorgeous sandals while dancing in a large crowd!<br /><br />So with that in mind I have put together my choices.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-gOth3Bxxefo/U9gUGnTkqNI/AAAAAAAAE2Y/1CRyk7LgsZs/s1600/Festival+outfit+1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-gOth3Bxxefo/U9gUGnTkqNI/AAAAAAAAE2Y/1CRyk7LgsZs/s1600/Festival+outfit+1.jpg" height="496" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">All items can be found at Newlook (suncream is Tescos own)</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">For those hot and sunny days I have gone for the above outfit choices Shorts which are light weight, comfortable and easy to take on and off. They are also fabulous as I can dance and not flash my knickers! Asimple vest that can be worn tucked in or out a cover-up for when it gets a bit chilly or later in the evening. &nbsp;Comfy shoes are my biggest tip, and these cute canvas ones are fab at protecting you from rouge stomping dancing feet. Don't forget the suncream and sunglasses very important!</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">My second outfit is for the cooler or wetter festival days.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-DzcQ9QNqjxA/U9gUGr3kz3I/AAAAAAAAE2U/MuKwMNUlgHM/s1600/Fwstival+outfit+2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-DzcQ9QNqjxA/U9gUGr3kz3I/AAAAAAAAE2U/MuKwMNUlgHM/s1600/Fwstival+outfit+2.jpg" height="496" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Lightweigh trousers which are quick to dry and comfortable are my saviour for days out, team them with a vest or tshirt and have a cover-up handy for if you get chilly. a waterproof is also a great item to pack. Comfy shoes again or a pair of wells if it looks like it is going to be a rainy day, the ones I have chosen would also work for a hot rainy day outfit too!</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">I actually have a couple of pieces on there way out to me, which I am going to wear in my own little festival inspired outfit.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dTYCJkm42xs/U9i-F7Z8tjI/AAAAAAAAE2s/41gmOnKF32U/s1600/313734403.jpeg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dTYCJkm42xs/U9i-F7Z8tjI/AAAAAAAAE2s/41gmOnKF32U/s1600/313734403.jpeg" height="353" width="640" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-s5O8CU6w0ps/U9i-F62Rn3I/AAAAAAAAE2w/SMsWHp3avU0/s1600/319195509.jpeg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-s5O8CU6w0ps/U9i-F62Rn3I/AAAAAAAAE2w/SMsWHp3avU0/s1600/319195509.jpeg" height="353" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">I Think I am going to team them with a pair of cuffed trousers or a midi skirt for a relaxed casual outfit.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">So you remember some oh the festival styles from years gone by?

The eye test part is ok, but the picking the glasses part I get stressed and worked up, I am not even sure why I took me over and hour today to choose one pair it was ridiculous, luckily Marc came after work to help me make a final decision or I might have just walked out!<br /><br />I went to sSpecsavers who have quite a big selection but I have quite a wide head and so many just don't fit me. In the end I found 3 candidates for my glasses, I will show you the two I didn't go for.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-XDHWcD9nYQY/U7LzGsmvw0I/AAAAAAAAEvY/OJrkeXZZSf8/s1600/photo+1-4.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-XDHWcD9nYQY/U7LzGsmvw0I/AAAAAAAAEvY/OJrkeXZZSf8/s1600/photo+1-4.JPG" height="640" width="480" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">I really liked these but I always go for red frames so faced a change.</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UFq_3BoLm-Y/U7LzGoW5AyI/AAAAAAAAEvc/3XVcll94zDc/s1600/photo+2-4.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UFq_3BoLm-Y/U7LzGoW5AyI/AAAAAAAAEvc/3XVcll94zDc/s1600/photo+2-4.JPG" height="640" width="480" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">These frames are black and I really like them but felt a little bit big on my face.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">The service at Specsavers Hertford was fabulous as always, as usual it was just my pickiness that took so long but they just let me look around and try on pretty much every frame they have.

We use two paid online movie services so lots will be from them and I warn you the majority will be horror as I honestly can't get enough of it! a vast amount of my spare time is spent reading and watching horror. Don't expect a fabulous film 2014 style review it will be my views and what I loved or loathed about it, I will try not to reveal any important plot information.<br /><br />The first film I am going to talk about is Odd Thomas, I love the book series by Dean Koontz they are one of my favourite reads as the characters are really easy to connect with and love.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ESSQAzZgy7Q/U7HXxNNa6BI/AAAAAAAAEu0/7AL0EdhqxQI/s1600/ODD-THOMAS_movie-art-690x1024.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ESSQAzZgy7Q/U7HXxNNa6BI/AAAAAAAAEu0/7AL0EdhqxQI/s1600/ODD-THOMAS_movie-art-690x1024.jpg" height="640" width="430" /></a></div><br /><br />The film stars Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin and Wilem Dafoe in what I think of as the lead roles. Filming was complete in 2013 but seemed to take an age to reach DVD and the film sites, the reasons for this are online if you fancy finding out more but my main focus is the film itself.<br />The story centres around the life of Odd, who really does live up to his name, it follows the story from the book fairly well but a few bits are missing that I think would have been fun, there really needed to be more elvis. The special effects are brilliant but I did sometimes thing they were used in strange ways that weren't needed and tended to distract more than draw me in.<br /><br />Anton Yelchin was a brilliant choice for Odd, he comes across well and makes you believe in odds carefree, kind soul, I adored him as Chekov in Star Trek and he was enjoyable in Fright Night too. This film isn't about blood and gore, the story is meant to be gripping and a little bit surreal which is how the book made me feel, Yelchin does a good job of making you believe in Odd Thomas and his strange and quirky life. Timlin Plays Stormy, Odds Love interest and although I adore her, she is not quite stormy for me , I think she will grow on me, but stormy in the books has a real presence about her you understand why Odd is drawn to her and her him, she was a little bit middle of the road for me in that area, not awful but not perfect either. I plan on watching it again to see if she browns on me as I think she will.<br /><br />One thing the film did really well for me, were the emotional scenes, they had me sobbing which to be fair is not difficult but it hit me just like the book did. I cried on a very busy tube when I first read this book.<br /><br />If you fancy a bit of fun with a supernatural slightly Odd film give this a go, it isn't high brow or intelligent but it is fun, has a couple of jumpy bits and quite honest it was perfect for a relaxed film nigt for me! I am off to find my book now to give the story another read, I think it will be number four this time around.<br /><br /><h4>The Verdict</h4>3.5 out of 5 starsLilybobombslovelylumps.comhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/15682266425739591342noreply@blogger.com4tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3013872684408548934.post-90148843730576075242014-06-30T11:55:00.000+01:002014-06-30T11:55:54.890+01:00Animal Pattern Phone Case Review<br /><div style="text-align: center;">Have you noticed that when your phone has a case you hardly drop it but the second I remove the case it violently and repeatedly launches itself from your hand or even flat surfaces at high velocity? Maybe it is just me, but since I managed to break my last case my phone seems to have turned into a slippery eel!&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">I can be very picky about my cases as I don't like to spend a fortune on them and my tastes change rapidly but I also don't want to go for an ill fitting cheap on that will fall apart on the first impact as well my phone is an important part of my daily schedule. When I was asked if I would like to try out a phone case for my <a href="http://www.three.co.uk/Discover/Devices/Apple/iPhone_4s">iPhone</a>&nbsp;from Three, I thought why not, I might find something fabulous.</div><div style="text-align: center;">The case I received was the animal patterned case and I have to say the pattern itself is seriously cute!</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-iKaHLymYey0/U7E5GNgDSzI/AAAAAAAAEuY/8Hbj6Pd8trY/s1600/DSC01664.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-iKaHLymYey0/U7E5GNgDSzI/AAAAAAAAEuY/8Hbj6Pd8trY/s1600/DSC01664.JPG" height="428" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;The case is a hard plastic case, I have had a few of these and to be honest was a little nervous as a couple have been very ill fitting, and the printed image a bit ropey, I was however pleasantly surprised. The case itself feels sturdy without being overly bulky it doesn't add a huge amount to the phone, it is obviously not a slimline as the phone alone but it is comfortable</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-N-1L4lc0IHA/U7E5GA1nAWI/AAAAAAAAEuU/ea7LR2BWU70/s1600/DSC01667.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-N-1L4lc0IHA/U7E5GA1nAWI/AAAAAAAAEuU/ea7LR2BWU70/s1600/DSC01667.JPG" height="428" width="640" /></a><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">You can see in the above picture that the case isn't super thin but it does mean that is doesn't feel like it is going to smash into a thousand pieces if it is dropped on the floor.</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PH6Kcr7PLKw/U7E5GLHmFzI/AAAAAAAAEuc/vfETfunhL6k/s1600/DSC01669.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PH6Kcr7PLKw/U7E5GLHmFzI/AAAAAAAAEuc/vfETfunhL6k/s1600/DSC01669.JPG" height="428" width="640" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;">The colours a vivid, fun and again seriously cute!

This has got me thinking about the more serious hot weather we are likely to have this summer and how I am going to cope indoors and out. this isn't meant to be an instruction manual and there are many more ways to cope than the ones I know, this is just my own personal experiences.<br /><br /><h3>Indoors</h3>Indoors for me, is a delicate balance between dressing appropriately and being comfortable. I am step-mum to a 14 year old so hanging about in my knickers and bra isn't really an option, so finding light comfortable clothing that isn't restrictive or to warm is important! on my lazy days when I know I won't be disturbed by visitors pyjamas are my favourite, but lets be honest we don't always want to be caught by a rogue visitor in our scruffs so what is an option.<br /><br />I am not the biggest fan of skirts of any kind for relaxing in, I find that my skin is hot and sticky and my legs sticking to each other is just not nice so I prefer trousers indoors for lounging in.<br />I am yet to find a pair of casual tapered trousers I am willing to wear out the fit isn't great on me to be honest and with the surge in popularity of chic cuffed trousers the last two summers it is frustrating.<br />I am not a fan of jogging bottoms in any form unless worn to the gym, but tailored versions are hitting the shops and sports luxe is fighting for its place in fashion and the shops are filling with silky joggers and harem pants galore.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-CJOoZChTJv4/U6rzZaojujI/AAAAAAAAEsc/G1rDyo1v0nw/s1600/a5560640-a057-48db-99be-9cbe9c9f4746-2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-CJOoZChTJv4/U6rzZaojujI/AAAAAAAAEsc/G1rDyo1v0nw/s1600/a5560640-a057-48db-99be-9cbe9c9f4746-2.jpg" height="640" width="426" /></a></div><br />The above outfit picture is from Yours Clothing, it is perfect for me to wear indoors and while entertaining friends and family and I would even be tempted to wear them out if by some miracle they fit me well, but I won't hold my breath as the odds seem to be stacked against me! This combination works for me, a simple light weight vest and a comfortable pair of trousers is spot on, I would miss out on the heels even though I am slightly obsessed with them! and instead slip on some comfy flats or flip flops!<br /><br /><h3>Home essentials!</h3>On a more practical note, get a fan, either a desk or pedestal fan, you can pick them up cheap in most supermarkets of go crazy and buy a posh one the choices are endless. Having the windows open is great but i find it is either too still and no air moves or it is too breezy and my curtains are flapping and stuff is getting knocked off all the time. I love my fan in the summer!!<br /><br /><h3>Get out and about</h3><div>But do it in a safe way. Even in the UK where our weather is not as hot as some places, we have such rubbish weather most of the time that the heat often catches us unawares. Sometimes getting up and moving can make things more bearable, &nbsp;i know that sounds odd as when it is hot we most often want to stop and flop out somewhere and be still but as someone who suffers from depression, being stuck in one room not moving for hours is terrible and to be honest so boring. Getting out of the house is important to me, but I try to avoid being stuck out walking during the hottest hours as heat stroke is a big problem for me. &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</div><div><br /></div><h3>Take a drink!</h3><div>I always keep a bottle of water in my bag, I don't care if it gets warm, sometimes I just need hydration, Super cold water can just end up making me feel sloshy inside and a bit sick when I am over heating, keep yourselves hydrated, I prefer water or juice fizzy never seems to really hit the spot at times like this.</div><div><br /></div><h3>Wear a hat</h3><div>Heat stroke is not nice, I have suffered from it a few times before and once so badly I passed out in the airport on my way home. I also have family and friends who have had to deal with skin cancer which has made me more aware of protecting myself.

I am not a huge fan of cotton clothing, I always seem to rip it get it dirty or because there is zero stretch I end up feeling restricted and become anxious, add to that the creasing and its just a disaster our outfit day for me. Linen while it is lightweight and very cool also isn't my favourite because I always seem to crease it and it goes from looking gorgeous and crisp to terrible very quickly.<br />I tend to go for light layers a vest or lightweight dress with a very light cardigan over the top, I get far too hot and quickly become sunburnt when I have too much flesh out so I tend to protect myself a bit, but if you tan well then go without the card, I sometimes wish I could but even with factor 50 I burn these days.<br /><br />There are a few items of clothing I want to give a go this year. First off their is the Skort, I feel a bit like I am slipping back to my teen years and the 90's but they are cute!<br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-CZcyG8OPGHA/U6wMeOKYX4I/AAAAAAAAEtg/UsnQQf_ZZF8/s1600/311637009D1.jpeg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-CZcyG8OPGHA/U6wMeOKYX4I/AAAAAAAAEtg/UsnQQf_ZZF8/s1600/311637009D1.jpeg" height="372" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.newlook.com/shop/inspire-plus-sizes/trousers-and-shorts/inspire-black-polka-dot-skort_311637009?isRecent=true">Image Source</a><br /></td></tr></tbody></table>This pair from New look are fab I could see them dressed up or down quite easily and the look comfortable and relaxed.<br /><br />The other is the Kimono, I know everyone is wearing them, and it feels a little like a festival bandwagon but I think it will be a fantastic alternative to my usual cardigans as it will be lightweight, and flawy allowing more air flow. which is just win win for me.<br /><br />I adore this one from ASOS I love the dark base colour and think it would be great for matching with almost any of my dresses.<br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TkslRSMc3jQ/U6wOSqpof1I/AAAAAAAAEts/573qe1x-kXw/s1600/image1xxl-11.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TkslRSMc3jQ/U6wOSqpof1I/AAAAAAAAEts/573qe1x-kXw/s1600/image1xxl-11.jpg" height="640" width="500" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.asos.com/asos-curve/asos-curve-exclusive-kimono-in-floral-spot-print/prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=4209644&amp;clr=Multi&amp;searchterm=kimono">Image Source</a></td></tr></tbody></table><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div>Other than that this summer will be dominated by circle skirts and the odd maxi thrown in for when I am out and about.<br /><br /><h3>The evil of the dreaded chafe!</h3>Only one or two things left to discuss, first for me is he dreaded chafe, it is the bane of many women and mens life and it is not limited to fat, thighs slim people suffer too, unless you have the legs of a flamingo most will experience their thighs rubbing together at some point and it is an evil pain!<br /><br />So I throw it out to my readers what do you find best, I have had comfort shorts from Evans for years but I am not keen on the tights material and the feeling of the scalping together sets my teeth on edge!<br /><br />I have heard good things about the Big Bloomers anti chafing shorts but have not personally tried them so can't vouch for them myself. I have also seen people talk about anti chafe sticks that you rub on and it stops it happening but I can't imagine that it last a long time and will need reapplying which also seems to have its own frustrations, so who has tried either of them and what do you recommend?<br /><br /><h3>Suncream</h3></div><div>Ladies and gents please wear suncream regardless of skin colour or tanning ability sun damage is a scary thing, from the wrinkles to the risk of skin cancer it isn't good! &nbsp;I am the person who gets burnt hanging the washing outside, have to love my Scottish skin.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><b>SO that is my list, to remind myself what I need to stock up on to survive this summer, what other recommendations do you have ladies and gents. Any other secrets and survival tips?

I have also been on the look out for something light enough to wear in the evenings over the summer when it cools down a bit and this jumper that Simply Be kindly sent me to try has been brilliant, it is pretty, lightweight and so easy to pop on over a vest when I get a bit chilly in the evening. I think it will still be a bit too hot for the hight of summer even in the evenings but it will see me through into autumn and winter too.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-054u-nCA46Y/U5tzByPi1jI/AAAAAAAAEms/PRa1aC8MZbY/s1600/DSC01264.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-054u-nCA46Y/U5tzByPi1jI/AAAAAAAAEms/PRa1aC8MZbY/s1600/DSC01264.jpg" height="640" width="428" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Jacket C/O Simply Be</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Jumper C/O Simply Be</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Jeggings &nbsp;- Dorothy Perkins</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Boots C/O Fashion World</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">These were taken a few weeks a couple of weeks ago while it was still cool and rainy.</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2ap6NBgm0Lk/U5tzRwlUF1I/AAAAAAAAEm0/IqspjY2J0fE/s1600/DSC01274.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2ap6NBgm0Lk/U5tzRwlUF1I/AAAAAAAAEm0/IqspjY2J0fE/s1600/DSC01274.jpg" height="640" width="294" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Look how pretty the lace shoulders are, I love it!</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">I am now on the hunt for a perfect longline vest top to wear with them which is proving difficult, they are all either so long it looks like a dress, or just a bit too short!

This summers collection is no exception, there are so many stunning dresses and separates that I just sit looking through the website ooohhhing and aahhhhing none stop! When IGIGI agreed to send me a beautiful dress for review I was very excited to chose.<br /><br />Being on the short side and fat I am supposed to follow all the rules, no all over patterns, no maxis and all that, but do you know what, Sod that!!! I wear whatever I feel good in, and a patterned maxi is exactly what I have been wanting.<br /><br />A few caught my eye<br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-EIOtdJLIDE8/U5bnDqbOswI/AAAAAAAAElI/LVV907qb4jg/s1600/naples_green_palma3727_fixed5.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-EIOtdJLIDE8/U5bnDqbOswI/AAAAAAAAElI/LVV907qb4jg/s1600/naples_green_palma3727_fixed5.jpg" height="640" width="468" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.igigi.com/plus-size-dresses/naples-maxi-wrap-dress-in-green-palma.html" rel="nofollow">Naples</a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-VPlTdVxkfmA/U5bnDuOVefI/AAAAAAAAElQ/Ort3JsExMzg/s1600/spring_2_catalogue_christinamint_maxi1459.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-VPlTdVxkfmA/U5bnDuOVefI/AAAAAAAAElQ/Ort3JsExMzg/s1600/spring_2_catalogue_christinamint_maxi1459.jpg" height="640" width="468" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.igigi.com/plus-size-dresses/christina-maxi-dress-in-mint-floral.html" rel="nofollow">Christina</a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-gnJ6ZLNuBqE/U5bnD2vVVqI/AAAAAAAAElM/a3io4_fN4as/s1600/spring_2_catalogue_letta1304_front.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-gnJ6ZLNuBqE/U5bnD2vVVqI/AAAAAAAAElM/a3io4_fN4as/s1600/spring_2_catalogue_letta1304_front.jpg" height="640" width="468" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.igigi.com/plus-size-dresses/letta-dress-in-kusama-dot.html">Letta</a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">They are all perfect and if I had some fabulous summer parties or weddings to attend I would be on these like a flash but I really needed something more casual and every day.

At the moment I am addicted to window shopping so when New Look asked me to pick some of my summer favourites, I said yes instantly, I never pass up the chance to shop!<br /><br />I am obsessed with dresses again this year which is no surprise! I really do have far too many or maybe its not nearly enough......<br /><br />I have fallen in love with the following bits and pieces<br /><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-T_dGGM3utP4/U3oz0b6IgBI/AAAAAAAAEa8/kwDS5weRRiM/s1600/303561899.jpeg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-T_dGGM3utP4/U3oz0b6IgBI/AAAAAAAAEa8/kwDS5weRRiM/s1600/303561899.jpeg" height="372" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Image Source - newlook.com</td></tr></tbody></table>I have fallen in love with maxi's again this year but I still need to find the perfect strapless bra!

If like me you have to resort to the dreaded Period knickers every month these are for you! No more scaling the dregs of the knicker draw to find pairs we don't mind ruining or that are already stained by our monthly cycle.<br />Dear Kate have been designed by chemical engineer&nbsp;Julie Sygiel, who decided that there had to be a better way, the technology behind the underwear is currently patent pending but it is beautifully soft,&nbsp;wicking, stain releasing, and leak-resistant, meaning no more period disasters and for ladies who suffer from leaking urine it is perfect. Head on over to the Dear mates website <a href="http://www.dearkates.com/pages/technology">HERE</a> to find out more about the technology it really is fascinating.<br /><br />One of the things about Dear Kates that I really do love is how beautiful they are, they a pretty stylish and comfortable, a long way from the usual big period knickers I usually resort to. They come beautifully packaged, and while the price tag is more than I would usually pay for knickers I have to say after wearing them on my heaviest cycle day and them washing perfectly with no staining I would be more than happy to invest in more pairs.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Fkoe7LtyELE/U3nPuxKAj_I/AAAAAAAAEaQ/ibxv_W3MaGg/s1600/DSC01281.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Fkoe7LtyELE/U3nPuxKAj_I/AAAAAAAAEaQ/ibxv_W3MaGg/s1600/DSC01281.JPG" height="428" width="640" /></a></div><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Kt7J2XpXD0Q/U3nPu3XvMtI/AAAAAAAAEaU/665YUeHAKSU/s1600/DSC01284.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Kt7J2XpXD0Q/U3nPu3XvMtI/AAAAAAAAEaU/665YUeHAKSU/s1600/DSC01284.JPG" height="428" width="640" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.dearkates.com/collections/1x/products/the-queen-size-rosa-brief-mini" rel="nofollow">Queen Size Rosa Brief Mini</a></td></tr></tbody></table><br />They do look gorgeous on!

I started trying to blog about my life and my love of shopping it was hard and overwhelming at times but I persevered and it became my happy place.<br /><br />In the last year or so it has become overwhelming again, mostly because the undiagnosed pain I had been suffering for the past 7 or so years had become much worse and had began impacting on my life. I couldn't walk far anymore without requiring a 2 hour sleep to recover, my hands and feet were so painful at times I dropped everything I tried to pick up and could hardly walk on waking. I thought I was losing my mind. Doctors had been scratching their heads for years, I had every test they could think of and still seemed as far away from the diagnosis as I was when it all began.<br /><br />In February this year I was at the end of my rope, I was crying constantly and in so much pain at times, it was making me feel dizzy and sick, I was not sleeping more than two hours at night and then feeling like a zombie or passing out on the sofa, my life was at a standstill. My next appointment with the rheumatologist was due at the end of february and I was dreading it, I expected the usual crap, fobbed off with more excuses and passed to another department for more test, I almost didn't go, it felt pointless, but my husband persuaded me to go to the hospital, I had an appointment with the head consultant this time, I usually saw one of his team, this was our first meeting and that in itself was freaking me out but when I walked in he made me feel very relaxed, he asked me to describe my pain and how it was affecting my life, it was like opening a flood gate! I poured out the last 7 years frustrations in about 5 minutes I think even he was a bit overwhelmed, but it felt good to tell someone how crap my experiences had been.<br /><br />After performing a physical exam, he sat me down and asked me if I had heard of Fibromyalgia, I knew the basics of it as I had wondered about it myself as I know a few people who suffer, he told me that sometimes it happens for no apparent reason or can to be linked to a physical or mental trauma.<br />and stress is a big factor in the pain cycle, he told me that my life seems pretty hectic and crazy right now and I need to find a way to balance some of it out, he started me on medication to help with the pain and recommended I see his psychologist who specialises in stress and pain management.<br /><br />The relief I felt that day was immense, I finally had a reason for the pain, I was not losing my mind, I laughed and cried and felt a glimmer of hope for the future. since then I have been vey up and down, the pain this last week has been horrendous and very hard to cope with, but the medication is helping with some aspects my feet and hands are not as severe in the mornings and my skin isn't as sensitive, a poke in the arm before felt like I had been punched my pain signals were all over the place, just need to find a way to stop the pain in my hips being quite so bad.<br /><br />I am going to find time to talk about fibromyalgia as it isn't well known and it helps me to talk about it and discuss coping strategies.<br /><br />One of my strategies I am giving a go starting today is the 100HappyDays challenge, I think it is a beautiful idea and hope it will help me to see the wonderful happy things I do have in my life.<br /><br />If you would like to find out more about it, I went <a href="http://100happydays.com/">HERE</a> and signed up this morning.<br /><br />My first happy day goes to my handsome dog Ron who ran to me this morning to get his kisses, I hand reared him and we are very close, he is my big baby. He went to the vets this morning to be castrated so I will be a nervous wreck all day, but this picture is keeping a smile on my face until I get to pick him up.<br /><br />My 100happydays will likely include lots of silly pictures of all my beautiful dogs.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-yZ5yN7OPr6I/U0PPH4alazI/AAAAAAAAEYQ/7osbsOOrJCs/s1600/10176061_10152065933902083_8216792394386499881_n.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-yZ5yN7OPr6I/U0PPH4alazI/AAAAAAAAEYQ/7osbsOOrJCs/s1600/10176061_10152065933902083_8216792394386499881_n.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div>I want to try to post my 100 days, I might do this on a daily basis or I might post a weekly update, I am just going to go with the flow!<br /><br />What makes you happy?<br /><br />Mhairi<br />xxx<br /><br />Lilybobombslovelylumps.comhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/15682266425739591342noreply@blogger.com6tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3013872684408548934.post-80360330929398958082014-03-27T21:10:00.001+00:002014-03-27T21:10:11.098+00:00What to Wear to Work with Fashion World<div>I firstly want to apologise to Fashion World and my readers for taking so long to get this blog post together, I have been very unwell recently, trying to adjust to new medication, and just trying to function, after finally being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, hopefully I will be here now more regularly that I am functioning slightly better.</div><div><br /></div>Office wear is something I hate buying! I rarely work in a job that requires me to wear suit anymore and I find office smart/casual impossible to balance most of the time. I always seem to swing to far one way or the other.&nbsp;<div><br /></div><div>I have recently been working for my local county council on a part time basis, and the dress code was office smart/casual! I found that people seemed to dress in a huge variation of styles of dress around to offices, some were super smart and some far too casual for my taste.</div><div><br /></div><div>When Fashion world offered to let me pick an outfit for the office I was very excited, it was a chance for me to see if I could pull off the elusive smart/casual mix!</div><div><br /></div><div>These are the items I chose</div><div><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-816bPQfIZlQ/UzSOGRcK5hI/AAAAAAAAEXU/BeAQ7HpCfhY/s1600/g04nl385500shuge.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-816bPQfIZlQ/UzSOGRcK5hI/AAAAAAAAEXU/BeAQ7HpCfhY/s1600/g04nl385500shuge.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.fashionworld.co.uk/shop/doctors-bag/nl385/product/details/show.action?pdBoUid=9539#colour:Black,size:ONE SIZE">Doctors Bag</a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">This bag is really lovely, it is smart without looking too dressy, which is fabulous!</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-MBmkQIszeh0/UzSOGcR5bXI/AAAAAAAAEXQ/ZdRoGu2Yqsc/s1600/g04qy104500whuge.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-MBmkQIszeh0/UzSOGcR5bXI/AAAAAAAAEXQ/ZdRoGu2Yqsc/s1600/g04qy104500whuge.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.fashionworld.co.uk/shop/colour-block-boyfriend-cardigan/qy104/product/details/show.action?pdBoUid=9171&amp;productType=Fitting#colour:Grey Multicolour,size:">Colour Block Boyfriend Cardigan</a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">I love this cardigan and it is perfect for work with smart trousers as much as it with jeans.</div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-69X9k5kWnOs/UzSOGYknAEI/AAAAAAAAEXg/xbQNeYYxh9g/s1600/g04qy152503whuge.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-69X9k5kWnOs/UzSOGYknAEI/AAAAAAAAEXg/xbQNeYYxh9g/s1600/g04qy152503whuge.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.fashionworld.co.uk/shop/tile-print-tea-dress/qy152/product/details/show.action?pdBoUid=9171#colour:Tile Print,size:">Tile Print Dress</a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">I went for a printed dress in monochrome as I just seem to love the look, it comes in 3 lengths which is brilliant for all the short and tall girls</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">So how did it all work out?</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-O3c1JlEYa18/UzSO9tAVOBI/AAAAAAAAEXs/mQy97FfiZ_A/s1600/DSC01193.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-O3c1JlEYa18/UzSO9tAVOBI/AAAAAAAAEXs/mQy97FfiZ_A/s1600/DSC01193.JPG" height="320" width="214" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">I love this dress, it fits beautifully, love the tile print pattern and it is going to be brilliant for the Spring and summer, this is how I have been wearing it recently, for work I would normally wear it with tights, but I had just ripped a massive hole in my last pair so this is it teamed with my leggings.&nbsp;</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">I am wearing it with my Fluffy Cardigan which you can also get through Fashion World as I prefer the look of it with the black cardigan over all.
