This year I have absolutely fallen in love with red and polka dots. This season I have the red dress below for work (I am secretly toying with whether to buy the blue one too) and I recently missed out on a red and a blue polka dot mac on Fashion Union which were reduced to £7 each (I was going to have both colours, so gutted!)
So in search for these macs I missed out on or a suitable replacement I came across some gorgeous other red polka dot items and decided to dedicate this post to all things red polka dot.
I found loaddddsss of kitchen things that come in red polka dot and I want them all.
I have a bit of a red theme in my kitchen already, so I am now making it my mission to add lots of these things to my kitchen hehe...
...was such a lovely day. For once I had a Bank Holiday off work and I actually relaxed.
I watched every episode of Sophie Dahl's new TV show whilst the rain beat down outside. I had been longing for a day at home wrapped up in a big jumper while it rained and finally I got it.
Once the rain had cleared up a bit, I ventured out to buy food.
Along my way I saw something beautiful...
...and something funny...
I also found an amazing book, just the sort of faith restorer I needed to remind me I am not just a stressed girl in a suit. It's called "The Thrift Book: How to Live Well and Spend Less" by India Knight and (I've not gotten too far through it yet) it's fantastic.
Today was a lovely day (despite work being manic) I met up with LazyGiraffe (Deepa) and went to this gorgeous place just opposite work called Origin 8.
I had a delicious Smoked Salmon and CousCous salad and bought some Garlic Stuffed Olives to take home (which Mikey loves) and a White and Dark Chocolate Mousse type Pudding which I ate on the train home.
I then finally (after what feels like weeks) cooked a "proper" BIG yummy meal of Free Range Chicken Smothered in Buffalo Wings Sauce with French Fries, Crunchy Salad and Creamy Coleslaw.
Ohhhh I almost forgot, and first thing this morning (yes 5am) I ordered my Moo Cards :D I thought I had missed the deadline for the free ones but luckily I had not.
Today I lost a lifelong friend and the best cat I've ever know. He'd been in life 17 years (longer than my little brother) and nothing I write will quite cover how I feel or what he meant to my family and I. So instead I am going to post photos and leave a link to the post my Mum wrote.
These are, by far, not the best pictures I have taken of him but they are the ones I could find!
