Mind the Barrier . . . and other snow adventures.

So it was a strange kind of snow day. Firstly because I didn’t wake up with a strong sense of hate for the horrid cold stuff (which almost never happens) and then secondly as we walked into the park today the girl in front of us actually managed to walk into the closed barrier. Luckily she didn’t seem hurt but it gave me another good reason to warn people about the dangers of snow.

So keep an eye out folks! Just because the snow is pretty doesn’t mean that we should ignore closed barriers! Hope you’ve all had a good weekend!


and for someone I find incredibly cute . . .

Bringing the bling . . .






You’d be forgiven for not noticing my ring – because and I realise this, that I don’t post enough images of my accessories as part of my outfit. I am trying, honest. Just this last week I wrote this+ post for TVCLifestyles talking about my favourite ring, ever. Ok, maybe not ever, but for right now, sure. Its a hand me down and I feel decidedly naked without it. 

This post is not all about my missing jewelry photos however. This is also a snow announcement. Did you know I hate snow? like dread it. A, its cold and wellies are not a fashion statement that I enjoy and B, I think when you’ve broken an ankle once you’ll learn that like my fav Taylor Swift lyrics, you’ll never ever ever want to do it again. Therefore because of snow (and I might have been very slightly – Ok, hung over on Sunday) I don’t have any new new posts this week – although a couple of outfits you’ve never seen, I’m not entirely convinced that these may be my best. So forgive me if you think what were you thinking?

On the plus side I bought really cute ear muffs today. (It was cold and I had time to kill at the train station – i may have a shopping problem!) So if your lucky you might just see them!

Until then, enjoy the weather wherever you are – and even if today is the (apparently) most depressing day of the year, I bought cute ear muffs so it can’t be all bad, right?
