What’s In My Bag…

Happy Wednesday lovelies,

Today’s post comes in the form of yet another YouTube video (I seem to be on a roll for filming these days) as I thought it would be oodles of viewing fun to take a peek inside my rather glorious¬†bag that I got as a gift from my hubby… he really is a good’un ūüėČ

So sit back, relax & catch up with me as I rummage through the contents of this super sized bag from Accessorize

Don’t forget to say a quick hello in the comments below, I do love a mid-week chatter!

Cheerio chums…

My Weekend In Pictures…

My Weekend In Picture

Happy Monday Beauty Buddies…

Did you all enjoy the weekend? I have to admit, mine was super special and in honour of having such a great time I thought I’d share it with you guys *woo hoo* So here’s a snippet of my weekend in pictures…

Friday Night:

 Steve & Karen

Seeing as Steve and I aren‚Äôt huge fans of celebrating Valentines by hitting by town,¬†we usually opt for¬†having a little extra special¬†date night at home together. Since I was attending a¬†pre-booked showing of Fifty Shades of Grey with my sister on Saturday night, we¬†decided to move our mini valentines celebrations to Friday instead (I know, I’ve such a great hubby eh!?) which thankfully worked out just as perfect as we’d planned!

Much to my surprise, Steve pulled out all the stops and wowed me with a gorgeous candle lit meal for the both of us which went down an absolute treat for our rumbling tums – a creamy coconut infused chicken curry with a medley of mixed veg… nom!!

Funnily enough both of us had agreed not to buy anything… however¬†we’re obviously a pair of¬†rebels as we surprised each other with a few sneaky little goodies ‚Äď which also handily served as a yummy dessert ūüėČ I’m such a lucky lady, he really is amazing!


¬†Saturday afternoon was spent mulling over a comfy but smart casual outfit choice for a girls night out to Fifty Shades of Mortification Grey. Usually after an hour of sitting in the cinema I‚Äôm either wilting like a dried flower or teeth-chatteringly cold (thanks to the indecisive¬†air con system) all whilst battling the ill-effects of numb bum *sigh* ¬†So I decided to play it safe with light layers, warm jeans, comfy leather flats and a few of my fav accessories such as cute owl earring, my ‘Miranda’ bag from Accessorize *swoon* and of course my signature scent of the season – Miss Dior by Dior

All that was left to do was raid my make-up collection for some glam inspiration…

 Outfit Combo

Leah convinced me to swap my ‘safe & boring’ lip gloss for some sassy MUA red-lippy instead. It would seem that¬†meeting Mr Grey¬†is the perfect opportunity to break out a sultry lip look *raised eyebrow* I admit, it’s not a colour I wear often (simply because I feel I’m wayyyy too pale to pull it off) however here’s the final result:

Finally… all¬†ready for Mr Grey!

So there you have it girls (most of) my weekend in pictures! I’m afraid Sunday is a bit of a lazy day in the Rees household so apart from yawning, reading, writing and eating things that are disgracefully bad for my waistline, there wasn’t very much else to take pictures off…¬†lucky you eh?!

So what did you get up to this weekend? Were you out painting the town red or curled up on the sofa enjoying a cosy night in?

As always thanks for reading & don’t forget to say hi in the comments below! You all know by now how much I enjoy a good chatter ūüôā

Cheerio chums…
