A different day...

Monday, January 09, 2012

I cant put into words how touched I am by all your sweet words and messages about the loss of my pop. You guys seriously are the nicest readers ever and I feel so lucky that you stop by my little blog. The funeral is tomorrow morning and I kind of feel like Ill be in limbo until then...

So on a separate subject...January is the time blog posts are filled with christmas present 'hauls' and January sale hauls. Ive never been a massive fan of sale shopping, too lazy to search through the rails but I do usually hit the asos sale. This year I got a big fat nothing! I was so disappointed. So with my little extra cash I bought myself a few new things I thought Id share with you guys.


left to right.
Dexter series one, Ive heard good things about the show & thought it would be something me and Dave could watch together. Ghost World again never seen it but heard good things, Water for Elephants I loved this in the cinema and had to have it on dvd! Heart frame from Next which Ive added one of my fav photos of Dave & I. Orla Kiely Notebook for all my 2012 blogging ideas! Rimmel matt finish & khaki green polish. H&M cropped knit jumpers & striped jumper with metallic neckline. My Jumper collection is pretty impressive now but I think these colours will work well into Spring.

  2. Hope you are holding up ok.
    Dexter is brilliant, I've seen them all and love it!

  3. Yes, the ASOS sale was a massive disappointment. H&M is good - and by the looks of it their new stock too!
    It would be mine
    My advice is to just surround yourself with all the people you love. And, time heals everything

  14. Such cute jumpers in lovely colours :) I love having a shopping sess and buying new bits and bobs. Us girls have to treat ourselves once in a while! x

  15. As first, I'm so sorry to hear about your pop. I wish you and your family all the best with this loss. I hope tomorrow will be a beautiful day with wonderful memories, even though it will be a very sad day.

    You've got some lovely new purchases. I also hear great things about Dexter, but never seen it. Perhaps I also start watching it.


  16. Sorry to hear about your Pop. I recently lost my Grampy-in November, so I understand the "limbo" that you mean. It was so heartbreaking not to have him around at Christmas, but I keep focusing on the good times, and you should too. If you ever need anyone to chat to then just get in touch. I'll be thinking of you and your family tomorrow. Stay strong lady!♥

  17. Oh will love Ghost World!! It's one of my all time favorites!! Thora Birch does an excellent job of being a sarcastic cynical bitch throughout most of the movie, but in a lovable way :)

  18. Ghost World is pretty much my favorite movie!
