2013 Year In Review Q&A

I love a good tag, and I think this has to be my favourite so far.  In the nearly two months I’ve been blogging (that would so weird – it feels like I’ve been blogging forever – in a good way), I have met some lovely bloggers and become an avid reader of some superb blogs.  This tag is kind of a salute to blogging, and 2013, which both deserve a special mention. I was tagged by the lovely Erika in this year in review post, which was originally started by Kerry.  Thank you both x The rules are pretty […]

OOTD my first ever ASOS.com purchases (I know!!)

As promised, a blog post on my new ASOS outfit. As someone with limited mobility, I know it is shocking that I haven’t been doing the whole online shopping thing up to now.  Well, I have – to an extent.  I do my grocery shopping online, and my monthly ebay spend is bordering on criminal.  I have been shopping for myself and J’s wedding next year (more on that story later), and the almost daily deliveries of beautiful things when I first started sourcing things was nothing short of thrilling!  Having done most of the ‘buy ahead’ shopping for the […]
