Leopards and Cardigans

Belt | Charity Shop Top, Shorts, Cardigan | All Topshop :( 


First of all, hello to all my new followers! Thanks to Bee. featuring me in her 'Blog Spotlight' post I've suddenly gained loads of you lovelies :)

Another thanks goes to Cowbiscuits who suggested bin liners on the wall for my friend's party. I'm going down to the venue tomorrow to try it out and see how it looks :)

Now about the outfit. I'm sorry it's all from Topshop, very boring but I only realised when I uploaded the photos. These shorts are my favourite ever, they go with everything and I can wear them Winter or Summer, evening or day. I've recently realised how much I prefer wearing shorts to skirts, they're just so easy to wear and you don't need to worry about them riding up or flashing anyone (always a good thing to avoid!).

I don't know if any of you follow me on twitter, but if you do you may have seen my angry tweet about the bingo. Basically, I went to Mecca Bingo for the first time (very exciting!) and everyone was very helpful, explaining to my friend and I how it all worked. After a few tries, I finally won a FULL HOUSE which was worth £100 for that particular game. So I nervously shouted out that I'd won (people don't actually shout 'bingo' disappointingly) but when the lady came over she'd said I'd MISSED IT. Apparently you have to shout on the actual number you win on, not any numbers after. So I lost £100 by a matter of seconds. I can't even begin to tell you how annoyed I was. If they'd have told me that I would have won! Now I understand why people take bingo so seriously haha. They read the numbers so so fast though! On the flip side, apart from that I had a brilliant time, I recommend going so so much. Ignore your prejudices!

Right, rant over. A good thing happened yesterday - I got a trial at my local pub! Hopefully I'll get the job, my friend who works there said it's pretty likely seeing as I've got the trial. It's good pay, flexible and very social - it's the main pub in my town!

So, happy times. I'm just thinking I should probably get Christmas shopping. I love buying presents for people :) Does anyone else usually leave it until a week before like me?? Maybe everyone will get pots this year seeing as I've made a billion of them in my pottery classes hehe. 


Yay! Only 30 days until Christmas!!! Are any of you going away anywhere exciting?

  4. Can't believe you lost £100 :( - that really sucks!
    However, good luck with the trial! I'm sure you'll get the job.
    I havn't even though about Christmas shopping yet :/ I should probably start seeing as it takes me ages to figure out what to buy everyone!
