I don't care where you're going, I'm coming along with you...

Dress from River Island, Tights by Henry Holland
Necklace from Accessorize
Rings from Dorothy Perkins, Dainty Roses & Accessorize

Carvela shoes from Kurt Geiger

Morning! My lovely friend Lynne turned 25 yesterday, which of course meant a night out! This is what I wore to celebrate her quarter of a century! The River Island shift dress was a festive purchase which I wore on Christmas day - it's ideal for this sort of over indulgent occassion as it skims over any lumps and bumps, hiding a multitude of sins! What do you think of my shoes?! I adore them!! The pony skin is so soft and luxurious to touch and they just look absolutely gorgeous - these photos don't do them justice and I don't wear them enough! They're actually a bit too big for me and the last time I wore them they KILLED my feet so they've been hidden at the bottom of my wardrobe for a while. It's about time they got to show off in public again :)

On Friday I made 'Slutty Brownies' which I discovered on The Londoner (fantastic blog, have a look!) - you can view the recipe here. They are to die for!! It was really easy to do and doesn't take long. Mine didn't look quite as presentable as they do on The Londoner but they tasted good! I used Asda's own cookie mix which is only meant to do 6 cookies, so I'd probably use 2 boxes next time. If you have a sweet tooth you'll love them - you only need a small portion at a time though or they become a bit sickly. Due to my lack of funds at the moment I used the brownies as a birthday present for Lynne - hopefully they're softening the hangover blow today! I think homemade gifts are a great idea when you're short of cash, most people really appreciate the effort. I'm away to drown my sorrows in tea and brownies anyway - hope you're all feeling a bit fresher than I am today! Happy Sunday :)

P.S - In my last post I moaned about how I was too skint to buy any of the Mary Katrantzou collection. Well, I gave in and ordered 2 items at 8.20am on Friday! Beans on toast for me this week! Expect outfit posts soon!

  2. Your heels are gorgeous! I;ve got a similar pair from Office that kill too and I'm too scared to wear them again as I got the most horrendous blisters, but beauty is pain right? Lol! I think I'll attempt to wear mine on my next night out.
