We don't care about the young folks...

Hi everyone, how are you all? Again this week has flown by so quickly and I have enjoyed doing several fun things. First and foremost, here is the outfit I wore the other day. Remember that River Island kimono I got months ago? Well I decided to wear it with my trusty Primark maxi dress which I have worn so much over time I am surprised it has not fallen to pieces! I love how pretty this kimono is, the detailing on it really is exquisite, as there are embroidered flowers and little gem stones sewn all over it. It makes me want to spin around in  a circle so that all the fringing 'swooshses' everywhere. Yes, I am 9 years old!







 I went to a wine tasting this week too. It was held at one of my favourite places, the Wro in West Kirby. I had never been to a wine tasting before and it was really good fun. There were three wines to sample and warm bread and cheese platters were served too. This was a wine tasting with a twist because the whole thing was held in French. It was fun to try the wines and put your opinions across in French and there was even a fun role-play at the end of the wine tasting. There was a comprehensive Powerpoint presentation which told you all about how best to taste and enjoy a wine. Apparently, wine experts hold their wine glasses up against a white background in order to see the clarity and colour of the wine! 





I have just popped into Liverpool this afternoon and I am sitting in Stabucks as usual whilst I write this post. I have got a Mango Passion fruit juice blend and it is delicious. Have you all tried it yet? 





I went into New Look before to have a quick browse and I was really impressed by the new season stock. These chunky woolly capes ticked every box for the colder months. They were only £19.99 and the fringing and check pattern made them really on-trend too. I could just imagine them paired with skinny jeans, boots, a light jumper and a floppy wide-brimmed hat. This is a look that would work for a day out shopping, a pub lunch, or a nice afternoon walking the dog. I also saw a chic bag, it was actually a backpack, but it had a handle on the top of it too. Are you all excited for the new season?



 Capes £19.99 each, New Look.
Bag £29.99, New Look. 


 It never ceases to thrill me how beautiful Liverpool looks at night when it is all it up. Here is a picture I took at The Albert Dock during a stroll recently.




Some of my Blogging essentials lately, anti bacterial wipes from Primark, a pretty notebook from Lisa Stickley, Tesco roller ball pen, Maybelline lipgloss, Juicy Water and of course my Toshiba Satellite laptop :)



As usual, a sunset picture I took this week  to complete this post. I hope that you have all been having a good week so far. Let me now what you have been up to! Remember, I love to read your sweet comments and I follow back my followers. 

Until next time,

  7. Beautiful outfit, I was craving for a kimono all summer and in the end didn't buy one...now summer is already over :(
    I've never heard of "New look", is it something like primark? The clothes look really nice, especially the grey checked cape.
