I have always been an ankle boot kind of girl but I have recently been enjoying the over the knee trend that I keep seeing on other bloggers. I can't say for sure as I haven't tried any on but I don't think my short stumpy legs would look right in a pair. I came across these knee high ones at the weekend and fell in love. I definitely think they look a lot more expensive than £20...Primark outdid themselves on this occasion!

Get More Vitamin Drinks

Get More Drink
This is a bit of a random one for the blog but I thought I would go with it as Vitamins are important kids!
After receiving a bottle of 'get more' in a goodie bag at the Rare London event a few months back I was contacted to see if I wanted to be sent some samples to blog about. Drinking is one of life necessities so I thought why not but then I actually read the email properly and realised these were just a little bit more than bottles of water.
The Mango and Passion Fruit Vitamin D drink actually provides you with 200% of your daily recommended allowance and you also get a bit of calcium in there too. I was told by the doctor a few years back that I had a vitamin D deficiency (I blame the UK and its lack of sunshine) and that I was to take daily tablets for the foreseeable future. Now...I am horrendously rubbish at taking tablets, I always forget to take them or take them for a week and give up! If I can get at least some of my Vits from a drink form then I can't complain and they actually taste pretty good. They get a thumbs up from me for quirky packaging too.
There are also 3 other flavour/vitamin combinations available if you fancy shaking up the vitamin intake a bit more!
Have you tried any of the 'get more' drinks?

Homeware Haul

Sign, Basket, Cushion and Wicker Heart- B&M
Postcards, Candle & Planpot- Ikea
Plant- Tesco
When you live in a rented house there is only so much you can do to make the space your own. Every now and again I like to spruce up the living room with a few little knick knacks, homeware shopping is my therapy and last week was a struggle so I took a few trips.
Last weekend it was to the mothership (*ikea) as it was a miserable day and I had a serious hot dog craving (if you haven't had one you haven't lived), obviously I couldn't depart empty handed so an obligatory candle made it's way into my basket along with these pretty postcards which I have now put into old photo frames.
The ultimate mothership for homeware however is B&M. I simply cannot enter that shop without buying something even if I don't need it. The 4 items pictured above all together came in under £10 which is insane if you ask me. You can't even get a door knob in most home shops for that!
When I am 87 and finally have a place to call my own there will definitely be a nod towards the Scandinavian d├ęcor that is floating around Pinterest at the moment. I love anything grey and boards are slowly filling up with inspiration ready to go one day.

These brown suede boots from Ash Footwear made their way into my life just as was in the market for a new brown pair and I couldn't be happier. Sometimes you can't beat breaking up an all black outfit which some chunky brown footwear.
Work has been so busy the last few weeks so I have been a bit slow with the posts, today I spent ages taking pictures so will you have 3 posts this week you lucky mares!
Hope you had a nice weekend.

The radio silence on my blog has been for a reason..last weekend I was spending time with my Disney family (my old roommates from when I worked there) and this weekend our household acquired a new furry friend. Once she has settled in I am sure she will be making an appearance.
My hat collection is getting bigger by the day, I have gone from fedora virgin to full blown addict in a matter of months. This burgundy beauty from Boohoo is the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe along with the super cosy oversized jumper.
