Pink - my favourite colour.

Morning, I'm having a super Monday after a great weekend.

You see I've had a very special person staying with me over the past few days, those who follow my IG might know exactly who I mean ... my princess, my one and only, my grand-daughter!  This might explain why I'm a tad late with the publishing of this blog - but better late than never - as they say!

I've had a fantastic time, had plenty of cuddles, lots of kisses and an abundance of love!
She keeps me young, playing imaginary games of shopping, tea parties, bouncing on the bed and playing with my hair rollers - what's that all about?  but never mind she's happy and that's all that matters.
I'd forgotten that things a nearly 3 year old like are quite often on repeat, from the Sausage Stew she's eaten every night for the past three  four nights, to asking what everyone's favourite colour is (mine's pink in case you don't know).  My Jacques Vert Pink Lace Dress is one example.

So with my favourite colour in mind, lets put the spotlight on pink!  Featuring it on today's Flat lay, there's a reason I've not had an #ootd today - but I'll share this later on in the week ;-)

With the weather being very typical to the UK atm, not knowing if it wants to be hot or cold!  Over the weekend we had stunning weather reaching, oh let's just say very warm, enough to wear a skirt (yes the legs came out - sorry who-ever caught sight of them) and no sleeves - yes I know can't believe some warmer weather has finally arrived.  Not sure how long the warmer climate will stay - but who cares! 

Popped into Peacocks today, literally flew in grabbed these two tops and sprinted to collect my princess.  Still haven't had time to see if they fit/look good, so dubious as to whether they'll be keepers or not! 
I'll have the answers by Thursday will it be yay or nay? - and I'd love you to check back with me then to see what the outcome is! 




Wanting bright cerise pink when I sprinted out today, but only found this little love in watermelon pink with white flowers all over it.  I can't wait to style this - will probably go for my grey skirt again, but I'm looking forward to playing around with all the matches it will make.

I've been wanting a black gingham top for a while now, but most I've seen have been OTS, which I'm not sure suit me, but I saw this today and knew I'd have to give it a try.  Really liking the tie detail on the arms and I can see this being worn with loads of separates - including my Grey Skirt, along with my White Jeans.  Looking forward to seeing what else I can pair it with - stay tuned folks!

In the news today an Exhibition in Birmingham by Jodi Ann Bickley, with the theme being "A letter to my younger self; a letter full of hope to a stranger or a letter of guidance to a younger, lost you."
I've already done this AGES ago, if you'd like to read mine here that'll be super, and maybe a small piece of advice to younger bloggers!




Catch up again on Thursday, but I'd love to hear what you've been buying in anticipation of warmer seasons arriving, I'm wondering what you lovely bloggers will be wearing in the coming months!

Just to add, please pop over to see Jess at Elegantlydressedandstylish where she's featuring a beautiful Hand Painted Scarf.

Bye for today. X

  9. First up, Thank you for supporting my 2nd Loved 1st Friday linkup. It means a lot to me. So what have I been up to on the purchasing front? First, I found a fantastic white cotton wrap blouse at a charity shop that just goes with everything. I gave in to Target's Victoria Beckman collection and ordered a dress. My Target doesn't carry the special collections, so I am going to have to keep my fingers crossed that it's now too short or to big and doesn't take a lot of alternation on my part to wear it. (haven't gotten it in the mail yet) and then I'm working on a top from Vogue 9243. It has a three flounce sleeve and does have pink in the pattern (but with every other color in the rainbow!]. That's about it and thank you again for linking up. Terri
