Happy New Year my lovelies!! So are we all Auld-Lang-Syned out? ;) Hope you all had a wonderful one whichever way you were celebrating. Haha I was such a granny & saw the new year in this time in my PJ’s from the comfort of my nice warm bed! It had been a bit of a crazy Xmas & what with being ill & all I decided to take it easy. So do we have any resolutions for the upcoming year angels? I don’t really bother making any new years resolutions to be honest as I’m a believer in that if you have any aspirations, or wanna make any changes in your life, you should just grab the bull by the horns & go for it! Life’s too short right? One of the steps that I am so happy to have made is of course starting this little bloggy of mine :) After reading & admiring blogs by all you other fab blogger babes out there, I was inspired to go ahead & start TrulyMadlyBeauty & even though its only been a couple of months, I have enjoyed it so much! I just love interacting & chatting away with all you lovelies & being a part of this fab community. I’ve even been lucky enough to have met a few lovely bloggers & I hope to meet many more of you in the future! I also want to use this time to thank from the bottom, top & the middle bit of my heart, everyone who follows, reads & comments on my blog :) It means so much to me truly, & I appreciate the support so so much! I always love hearing from you dolls & have loved getting to know lots of lovely ladies this past coupla months :) So here’s to a great year coming & I’m looking forward to continuing my blog & seeing what sort of adventures it will take me on!
Anyhoo on to the first post of year :) I’m a bit of a nosy old goose & really love seeing Haul posts on everyone’s blogs so I thought I’d go ahead & just share with y’all the goodies I managed to grab in the sales this year (last year??) Like I mentioned previously, I didn’t go crazy, according to my standards anyhoo. But I’m happy with my purchases & will deffo get good wear out of them I think. I always get guilty buying things which end up straight in the cupboard never to see daylight again! I’ll admit that this has happened occasionally…“hanging head in shame” So that will be one thing that stops this instant!
|Soft Grey Wool Dress from TK MAXX - its so kitten soft & really warn, perfect for current cold weather|
|Chiffon dress from Peacocks - I never find anything in here but saw this & loved it! Everything from the floral design to the gold detail round the collar appeals to me :)|
|Delicate White Cardi from New Look - the material on this is gorguz soft & can see myself pairing this with many outfits|
|Cream Lace Dress from New Look - fell in love the moment I saw this! Such a pretty dress & I've found I have a weakness for lace!|
|Red & Black Dress from H&M - thought this dress was gorguz! Can see myself wearing this for both nights out & day wear, material is a lovely flowy chiffon|
|Knee High Bootsies from New Look - have wanted a pair of knee highs for a while now & these fit the bill!|
Can you tell I have a weakness for dresses?? Lol! I adore them as they are lovely to wear in the summer & then come winter I can just layer them with thin black tees & cardi's :) Am actually wearing the peacocks dress today with leggings & a long cardi & when I go out I'll team it with the new boots I think, as the studs go with the dress collar! So ya see? I can already see how I'll wear my purchases so there will be no chance of them being shoved into the wardrobe to gather dust! So its been a very happy sale-ing this time round! Oh & this shopping trip was particularly delightful as we also made a stop at possibly one of my all time fav places...have you guys heard of Mr Simms Olde Sweetshop by any chance? ;)
|That brown paper bag is a thing of beauty....|
|But the contents are even better!!!|
Oh I could spend my entire life perusing the shelves within this wonderful place...row upon row of delicious fudge, chocolate & toffee as well as tubs of cola cubes, pineapple chunks, rhubarb & custard & many more classic favourites! Tis a magical place really...sigh! I'm not sure if its a branch or not, but if you have one near you, get yourselves there ASAP! :) Or actually maybe you shouldn't, as once your a lover of Mr Simms, there's no going back... ;) Happy New Year again to you all my darlings! Did you hit the sales this year? If so did you find any good buys? Hope so! As always thanks for reading cherubs! Mwah!
Lotsa hugs & smooches!
