Why Do You Wear So Much Purple?

Dress: F&F | Boots: USC | Necklace: Claires

Last weekend I walked to the retail park near me (well, its easier to walk to than to walk into the centre of Bristol from here!) and bought a few dresses from the Tesco Home store we have. (The Tesco thats closer has such a rubbish clothes department!) I would order things from the Clothing at Tesco website, but their sizing is so wonky – I ended up buying two dresses in a size 20 – I’m normally a 14/16 (depending on the store)

This dress is so comfy, although would be better if it were a little more fitted. There were some photos I took where it looked a bit tent like :/ Not a look I go for by choice!

I headed up to Tart yesterday to meet Emsy for tea and gossip, then we headed down Gloucester/Cheltenham Road to visit all the shops we pass on our ways to work – finally going in to Portabella (who have some gorgeous dresses!), another visit to Cox and Baloney next door, Shop Dutty (which is also the home of Boom Nails, who you’ve probably heard of from all the Motel event posts!)




Most exciting part of the wander down Stokes Croft? Finally being able to stop at Patisserie Leila and buy some macarons.  Blackberry, lemon, pistachio, raspberry and coconut. YUM.

Everyone Takes Turns, Now Its Yours To Play The Part

Jumper and skirt: Clothing at Tesco.

I bought these…wow, a year ago? Looking back at that post, I realise how different those pictures on the Tesco website are to these items. The skirt is a LOT shorter than it appeared online, and the jumper looked nicer in the lighter grey. I need some new clothes really, but am feeling so ~*uninspired*~ by the usual websites and shops. Any recommendations? (Or would anyone like to come shopping with me and make me buy stuff?!)

The comments in my last post were really awesome too, seems like most people were recommending M&S for high street tights, so I’ll have to pop along there this week after work. Until then, I must remember to Superman more often (thanks Sarah for educating me on that term last weekend!)

Yesterday I headed over to Bath to see Ally (whos new blog you should all check out, like, right now) for a bit of shopping, some delicious espressos at Colonna and Smalls and lunch at The Canary Tea Rooms – yum!

Follow Friday

By the time you read this post, I’m on a boat! Aaaaand, its going fast aaaaaaand, I got a nautical themed pashmina afgaaaaaaan train. (Thats just not as interesting is it.) I’m off to London for the night, with the lovely ladies at Aussie who are treating my fellow Angels to a fabulous firework display on the London Eye. (What better place to watch it than above the Houses of Parliament?) Because of this, I’ll probably be a bit quiet on Twitter (for a change) so thought I’d leave you with an extended version of Follow Friday.
I’m not really a fan of Follow Friday, I must admit. Tweeting a list of names doesn’t really say just why these people are worth a glance. Sounds harsh, but think about how many lists of names you’ve seen in your timeline today.
New Twits
So many people have been signing up for Twitter recently, which is really awesome! It seems like many of my ex colleagues are hopping on Twitter as a way to fill their bleak dreary days. Bless. You should follow fuzzfielding, strideonthrough and paulpukka and keep them entertained. I think nickbrompton had something to do with that, as he’s also convinced his lovely girlfriend thehappyfatgirl to sign up as well! Paulpukka and thehappyfatgirl have both started up blogs in the last month or so, and both are very funny!
Finally, one of my Uni friends, missalyz has signed up, about 2 years after her boyfriend did! Ally is one of my favourite people in Bath, and likes tea, cakes and lovely lady things.

Angels of the North (and South)
Like I said earlier, I’m off to London to see lots of lovely bloggers, who all deserve a follow and a subscribe to their blogs. The event is being organised by yummyhair, and I’m looking forward to seeing frillsnspills, dannimoo, f1shnets, essbeevee (I know, her again. It’s a good thing I like her cause I see her so much!), wolfwhistle , saveourshoes and miss_xtina. I’m so sad though that ellietweeter is going to miss out because she’s ill :( Get well soon Ellie!

Why “Baf” instead of “Bath”? I’m from the North, and hate when people say Barth. Is there an R in there? IS THERE? No. North wins.
This year, Bathcamp was organised by my lovely friend juliancheal with lots of help from missalyz. Unfortunatly, Alex and I couldn’t attend during the day as originally planned (Well, I was going to go shopping) but we popped by in the evening to see a very funny version of Family Fortunes, and I finally got to meet t1mmyb and z303 which was really cool, since I’ve been talking to both of them for ages on Twitter! Oddest sight of the night for me though was seeing jukesie drinking from a yellow mug…I’m more used to seeing him with a pint in hand!

Hopefully from that, you’ve found someone else to follow. I’d just like to say that writing this on the iPad wasn’t my best idea ever, because the copy and paste bit is crap. Painful to say the least.
