Good morning, are you happy?
This post should have gone out weeks ago, but just couldn't find the right outfit I had in mind, so here it is better late than never!
Wanted to share with you this lovely book I received for Mothers Day.
My daughter delighted me with Fearne Cotton's book HAPPY some weeks ago, and I couldn't wait to start reading it.
I have to be in the right frame of mind to read a book , and it's something I don't do very often. My normal situation to read is on a flight - takes my mind of where I am!!
Happy is a book about Depression, I wouldn't class myself as being depressed at all, but thought it might be an interesting read and I may learn something.
It reads "little things keep your mental health at bay and is packed with ideas and practical exercises to join in with her journey."
I'll keep you updated as to what my impression of the book is like ...
Love the colours on my new Mothers Day Cath Kidston mug, perfect colours to match my book.
I was so inspired by the colours on the cover and felt I wanted to see if I could create a suitable outfit to incorporate some/all of the colours.
Here's what I ended up with ...
I know I like bright colours but I really can't see me wearing this outfit out, definitely not out out either!
Therefore I've tried to style these colours but slightly muted down with black trousers which is more how I'd wear it.
I'm calling this a 'Rainbow scarf' for obvious reasons, borrowed from middle daughter, I'm not sure where she acquired it from, but it can be paired with a multitude of coloured pieces, making it a versatile little acquisition that maybe she won't notice missing!
The trousers I'm wearing are basic straight leg. I've worn these numerous times and certainly got my monies worth from this Dorothy Perkins key item. Every over fifty fashionista should own at least one pair!
View what else I paired my F & F cardi with here.
Have you got an exciting long weekend lined up?
I'll be enjoying a little celebration with friends and family for hubby's birthday - that's the thing with a large family - plenty of birthday parties!
So with a Birthday, a Bank Holiday and beautiful grandchildren I'm definitely saying Yes - I'm Happy.
Don't forget to pop back on holiday Monday as there's an interesting little project in the pipe line - please don't miss it!
Until Monday, thanks I'm chuffed you've taken the time to visit, I hope you can leave a comment. X
