Halloween fun

Last night we celebrated Halloween a day early because of having plans tonight. I always like to make big of any occasion and instead of just sitting in watching scary movies I like to create a little fun filled night with Liam, even if he isn't quite as excited as me ha. 

I went on a little Halloween shopping spree buying the obvious pumpkin, tea lights, chocolate skulls, apples for Apple bobbing, toffee apples, chocolate apples, fizzy fangs, limeade and lemon sorbet for my IceScream juice :) and face paint even if it was just me and Liam lol.

So, we started with carving the pumkin and then went onto face paint which I can 100% say that Liam's batman facepaint was a lot better than my cat woman ha. 

I made our IceScream juice which is so simple and really effective especially for kids but seen as I don't have any, Coco, Liam and I just enjoyed them :). 
The limeade worked really well for this occasion as it gave it a green colour and then mixing it with lemon sorbet gave it the throffy effect. 

We then sat down and watched movies and enjoyed lots of Halloween treats.

Shopping days

Tuesday I went shopping with my mum to treat her for helping at my dance companies show. She signed all of the dancers in which took a long time as I have over 200 dancers and they all arrived at different times through out the day for their rehearsal slot on stage. 
We had a lovely meal out at Coast to Coast which is one of my favourites when shopping in Leicester. My mum has never tried it but also loved it. 

I wore my new berry biker jacket and zara t shirt. I do love a slogan t shirt, Zara do them so well and they look more expensive than what they are with a great fit and great material. 

The biker jacket matches so well to my burgundy fedora so I loved the outcome as i do love a match :). I love a black and burgundy look which I think comes from the kooples campaign a few years a go.

I'm also wearing my over the knee boots which you can't see too well because they are over the top of black jeans, but I love them lots. Great heel height and love the platform. 

It's half term for me this week as all of the children are off school so I'm taking advantage of the free time and enjoying lots of things. Stay tuned for more pics of my half term adventures :)

Hats, hats, hats

As most of you will already know I'm pretty obsessed with hats, fedoras being my favourite but here is a new member to my collection with a bit of a different shape. For starters the rim is bigger and it's floppy compared to the straight, stiff rim of a fedora. 

I loved the colour and the texture and that's what won me over. I'm not a huge fab of floppy hats but the texture is seude like and it's always nice to add to my collection with a hat that is a completly different material and colour. 

However I do find it hard to style it as I'm not a huge brown, tanned fan though I do feel it works very well in these pictures below. 

This is a Zara hat and I'm looking forward to the task of creating more looks with it.
