Continuing my quest for all things Christmassy led me to Poundland (the tackier the better where baubles are concerned I say! Although they were surprisingly nice). While there I found some oh-so-cute little fairly lights to adorn my screen, pictures, desk, kitchen.... you name it, they would be perfect anywhere. And at £1 a pop?!! (Last year I almost bought some on Amazon for about £9 and I thought THAT was good!) I am planning to stock up - and at that price will be having 10 times as many as planned last year - for same outlay :-)
Here they are (with apologies for the crumpled quilt cover in the 2nd photo....oh dear, ironing is strictly on a 'needs must' basis nowadays....)
I also must share some fab earrings I found in M&S the other day.
They are (again, blush!) M&S Woman and silver plated. £6.50. Look really good I think. I don't normally wear hoops but I do like these, and they look better in real life! (My photography skills - or lack of! again.)
I saw a lady wearing some like it (may have been the same model) on the bus from the park and ride the other day (unlikely source of inspiration I know...) and admired them. Lo and behold M&S came up trumps again.
Finally a tutorial for the 'long' snood - which admittedly requires a bit more fiddling than comes naturally to one such as me, so there are are a few more steps (only a few) than the the 3-step 'bung on head' approach I employed before. For your amusement here goes:
Snood in question is the reversible stripe snood from the White Company (tres toasty). Worn with White Company navy 'diamond insert' jersey dress (tres flattering). Have a bit of a thing going on with White Company at moment. So much so that I've just received a £10 gift voucher! (Then again, probably so has everyone else on their mailing list - times are hard!!)
