Payday Wish List: Jan Picks

It’s been a while since I last blogged and even longer since I last posted a wishlist but with payday only 3 days away, it seems fitting to blog about what I’m gonna fritter my money away on come Friday. I’ve recently become obsessed with Gossip Girl having discovered it on Netflix and missing the hype the first time round and kinda want everything in Serena’s wardrobe, so this pair of double buckle geek shoes from Topshop are just the right side of preppy. Green is my absolutely favourite colour so when I first spotted this skirt on Lily Melrose’s blog I knew I had to have it. I love the jacquard floral print and its perfect for summer and winter. I tried this lovely leopard print dress from River Island on in store about a week ago and it fit really well and I love the colour and print but just couldn’t decide on whether it would date really quickly or not. I still love it and at £25 I think I’m defo gonna …

Weekend Blues

So, this weekend has been rubbish! After feelimg the beginning of a cold setting in on Friday I woke up yesterday to find it had set in and continued on today. A lazy Sunday isn’t all bad though. I have recently got hooked on Dexter so today was the day I started season 2. I’m only 3 episodes in so far but it’s great. It’s true what people say as the twists do really reel you in. After a couple of days I wanted something easy to watch and chose Sex and the City 2.  Well, I hadn’t watched it since it came out at the pictures and this afternoon I remembered why! However it was nice to spend the afternoon with Carrie and co. During X Factor yesterday was the new Matalan Christmas ad. It was so exciting to see it on the telly after the buzz surrounding it in work. Le t me know what you think!!

Warehouse and River Island- Xmas Press Days

So I wrote a post on the weekend about my lovely work trip to London town last Thursday to attend the Matalan Xmas in July event and whilst I was there I managed to squeeze a trip in to a couple of the other events held around Covent Garden and Oxford Street. I explained in my last post I rarely get the chance to get down to London, in fact it was my first ever time to Oxford Street- I know, I can’t quite  believe it either! I am defo more of a Manchester gal. However, the Warehouse and River Island were both great but very different. Warehouse The Warehouse event was held in Convent Garden and we were greeted by the by the PR team. It was in one room with the clothing on mannequins in outfits built to suit the A/W season. The bags were gorgeous, as always at Warehouse, and I almost certainly fell in love with a stunning black leather jacket. Lots of studs and embellishment planned to carry us throughout …

Xmas in July- Press Events

So this week I got to take a work trip down to London to the Matalan Xmas collection press event. I don’t really get the chance to go down to the capital that often so I really was a tourist armed with my camera! It was great to see how retail events work, meet and chat to some of my favourite bloggers and have a sneaky peek at the clothes due into stores. Whilst I was in town I managed to get to the Argos, Missguided, Warehouse and River Island events. They were all so different but the clothing was gorgeous! Here are a couple of pics from the day and the Matalan and Argos events- Matalan The Matalan was a fantastic day, yes I’m biased I know, and it was great to see key pieces across all departments. I will post a more detailed entry over the next week but for now, here are a couple of pics. To see more footage from the event check out the Matalan blog 🙂 Argos The Argos …
