It's been one of those weeks - I've hardly sat still the whole time...so here's a quick run down on the outfits I wore and what I got up to. You'll have seen many of them if you follow me over on Instagram - the place to be to see things as they happen :)
Wednesday saw me meeting Lorraine Kelly and Mark Heyes over at the JD Williams press day. I was utterly star struck even though both of them were so down to earth and lovely.
Lorraine's new range for AW15 looks great.
JD Williams site soon - I'll be sure to let you know when it launches. Incidentally, Mark also designs for one of the Marisota plus size brands, AVA...and he was showcasing his range too.
Simply Be collection. I didn't realise it caters for size 12 in many of its ranges and will be incorporating more size 10's in the range going forward too as the designs are so popular. I was very glad to hear that having seen some of the pieces they have in their AW15 range....
Thursday was a real catch-up day....this is what I wore during the day:
Navy Jersey Jacket - New Look size 12
Geo Top - & Other Stories (a London purchase - size 12)
Jeans - Lidl size 12
Navy Quilted Handbag - Dune (via TK Maxx last year)
Yellow Cardigan - via our Choir Director, Marie, who bulk buys them online. They're not fabulous quality but do the job for occasional wear at concerts.
Black Jumpsuit - Matalan (SS14 - similar)
Black Ballet Pumps - Emmy Twenty (no longer in business...nice ones in New Look here)
Cross Body Bag - Gap (sold out in black)
On Friday, I had returns to do, new stock to pick up for the shop, orders to post and a friend to meet..
Military Jacket - Hush (now sold out)
Black Stripe Top - Hush (past season similar)
Jeans - Lidl as before
Bag & Shoes as before
but it was another quick change at lunchtime, for yet another dress rehearsal at the Gaol all afternoon before our live performance from 7.30pm. If you're interested, you can see the choir on the One Show on this link and on our BBC2 NI show on this link. I don't feature on the One Show link as it was so short but I do appear a few times on the second one. I'm up on the balcony beside where the presenters do a few of their links.
Saturday, I took 2 of the kids to Ikea for some stuff we didn't need...
Black Top - F&F at Tesco (old)
Jeans - Gap Forever Stretch Legging (via Gap Outlet)
Necklace, Bag & Shoes as before.
and on Sunday, it was a long promised trip to the cinema. I tried to explain to the kids that when the sun shines, the cinema is the last place you should be but they were having none of it. Cue 90 minutes of my life I will never get back in the form of Sponge Bob. I normally enjoy the kids' movies but not this one.
Necklace - SGS Shop (past season)
Here's to a slightly quieter week this week coming. For anyone who's ordered from the shop, all orders will be dispatched tomorrow (Monday) including all the black flower necklace orders. Thanks for your patience with these out of stock items...I can't get anymore of the black one but most other items will be back in stock again by Monday afternoon.
