Back to reality.

Hello there,  I'm back and raring to go.
December already and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Full steam ahead for present buying, card writing, food shopping and partying!  How's your preparations going?

What a fantastic time I've had in Abu Dhabi, I'll be featuring this in a blog post within the next few weeks.

Sharing today one of the dresses that accompanied me on my holiday.
This Asos Warehouse dress has a Swirl print, & is a midi length AND it's now in the sale for under £35. Not my first choice as it wasn't my favourite, it was my daughter's pick which, once on, actually turned out to be my personal best, getting a big thumbs up for the unusual style and design, making it a real statement dress.
A partially lined dress with a one side off the shoulder detail, with a drawstring waist and striking tie sleeves this dress is just that little bit out of the ordinary!


I've fallen for not only the style, but the colours as well. Navy blue and yellow are great colour matches.  I've worn plenty of outfits with these hues, you can see Mustard and jeans & Mustard dress with blue scarf are two options.
My Asos dress ended up being the perfect holiday dress and went down a treat on my visit to Abu Dhabi last week.










My gold sparkly 'T' bar shoes have been re-named my beautiful dancing shoes, not that I've done any dancing in them! They dazzled me in Dorothy Perkins & have both wide and standard fit.  With  prices of £18.90/£21.60 these should be top of your Christmas list to complete your party look for sure. I found these amazingly comfortable to wear on a couple of nights out, I absolutely can't wait to wear them again over the festive season.


Have you been watching Strictly Come Dancing (UK Bloggers)?  I just can't get enough of this programme and love all the glitz, glamour, sequins and dancing.  Every year I vow I'm going to learn how to dance 'ballroom style', so there's one more for the bucket list!  but if anyone is reading, I'm up for a stint on SCD ...😏

Thanks for stopping by, see you again on Thursday.

Cheerio for now. X
