Firstly here is my outfit from Friday.

Saturday night was my friends hen party, with the fancy dress theme of army(her fiance is an army boy)

I had a nice afternoon getting ready for the evening ahead so decided to attempt camouflage print nails, they are not brilliant but I am quite impressed with my effort considering I had never tried it before!

The nail varnishes I used were a pastel green from M&S Pastel Mini Collection, Barry M Lemon Ice Cream & Collection 2000 Hot Looks No 9 Catwalk.

A quick snap of most of us girlies in our army gear!

We had a fab night, lots of cocktails, shots, dares and hen party games!

And finally my hungover Sunday outfit! I spent the day mainly recovering and going to the Dad's in the evening for a Father's Day meal.

She has 7 fantastic prizes up for grabs ranging from H! Holland goodies to Alice in Wonderland treats!

Lady Bug Says ... Sunshine Garden

Afternoon Ladies!
I decided to do a post that is a little different today. I have the day off work so have been lounging around in the garden soaking up the sun and admiring the garden. Now, my Mother will tell you that I am not a green fingered person, so I am very proud of my efforts!
When we moved into our house in November this is what we called our 'garden' or more commonly known as the mud pit!

7 months later this is what we have created! Now I cannot take all the credit, the Mr is responsible for shed building/deck laying/ flower bed construction/ lighting. But I did help with turfing and did alot of the planting.

Being a 'stick it in the ground and hope it grows' kinda person I am very proud of all the pretty growing things!

I grew lilies! From bulbs! and there are alive and pretty!

No idea what these are but thought they looked nice!

Hope you don't mind me sharing my little 'OMG I did that' moment with you all!

Lady Bug Says ... Sunshine Once Again :)

Hello readers.
I am having a slight fashion crisis at the moment. Usually I am pretty sure what I want to wear/what one piece I am going to build an outfit around/what look I want to achieve, but recently I seem to be putting on a selection of items in the morning and realising by around lunchtime that it really isn't a good look!
So I am going to go back to my old ways of properly thinking about an outfit the night before!
So here is what I wore today

Sandals, Primark £18(gift from my sister), Leggings, H&M £7, Black vest, H&M £3, White sundress, Primark kids £7, Blazer, Primark £13, Necklace, Primark £3, Bracelet, ASOS £3

Outfit total - £36

Do you ever get the feeling you are losing your way on the fashion highway?!

Ask me anything
