Lady Bug Says ... Lavender Girl

Afternoon ladies!
Hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend! It has just started raining here so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to do a blog post!
Yesterday(when it was actually quite sunny!) I cycled to the village near my house, it was their carnival weekend so there were lots of stalls set up along the street and second hand bargains to be had! Trying to cycle home with my bag off goodies wasn't so easy!
I managed to pick up a copy of Sophie Kinsella's 'Can You Keep A Secret?' which was recently recommended by the lovely Audrey Allure for the princely sum of £1 :)
Here is an outfit from Thursday last week.

Top, Max C, Won in giveaway at We Shop Therefore We Are, Cropped Jeans, Next Clearance £4

Outfit total £6!(a record for me maybe?!)
I have never owned a lavender item for clothing so when I was given a choice of receiving this top in either nude or lavender I thought it was a good opportunity to expand my purple horizon!
Are the any colours that you have steered clear of in the past?

Lady Bug Says ... A Milestone And Some Outfits!

Evening lovelies!
It is an exciting day for me and my little blog, I have reached 100 followers :) I want to say a big thank you to everyone who takes the time to read and comment on my blog! I will be doing a giveaway in a few weeks, I have been collecting bits and pieces for a while, but want to get a few more special things before I tell you all about it!
Any way, I have been abit of a slacker the past few days, on Friday I had a consultation for laser eye surgery, which resulted in scaring me a little(the price/the description of the surgery/the drops that made my pupils massive and not be able to see properly!) but I still really want to be able to see!!
So here is my outfit from Friday

Jeans, Matalan £10, Tshirt, H&M £4, Blazer, Primark £1

Outfit total £29
My weekend was spent basically trying to keep my house super tidy as we have been showing rooms to prospective lodgers. Fingers crossed the ones we like want our rooms!!
And here is an outfit from today!
Leggings, H&M £7, Tshirt, Primark £3

Outfit total £15

Have any of you had laser eye surgery or have considered it? Did you all have a fun weekend?

Lady Bug Says ... The Reward For Eating Lots Of Chocolate!

Hello girlies!
Well, I am sure you all know about the Benefit Flake competition by now! Well I have been eating a fair bit of chocolate recently! So £15 and a lot of chocolate later I have now got all 6 of the Benefit prizes!

My favourites have to be Do Tell and Fresh Squeezed!

The lip glosses smell yummy, which I think is very important!

All in all, well worth eating all that chocolate!

Lady Bug Says ... Getting Some Practice!

Evening ladies!

Well the countdown is on for my Pedal It Pink ride in September, so the Mr and I went for a 6 mile practice ride, with a convenient pub stop in the middle (I'm easing myself into it!)

If you want to find out more about the Pedal It Pink events please check out the Breast Cancer Campaign website and if you would like to sponsor me you can click the link to the right of this post!

Whilst at the pub for our little refreshment break (I was very disappointed that they have stopped doing fruit cider!) I decided to take some arty shots. I have always liked photography, and long to be more than a 'point and click' girl! I am hoping that I might be blessed with a half decent camera for my birthday/Christmas!

And a cheesy snap shot to finish!

P.S I am having lots of fun editing pictures with Picnik, so sorry for the random pictures, I will settle down abit when I find a style I really like, promise!

I felt abit like Safari Barbie in this outfit! And thanks to the weatherman and his crap weather predictions I got some very odd looks walking to the bank with my legs out whilst it was raining and pretty damn cold!

Bargain ring :)

I picked up this necklace in the Matalan sale, love all the little charm elements.

Recently I have seen Leanne at Do Not Refreeze do some fab sponged gradient nails!

So here is my attempt, not bad for a first try!

I used ELF 'Desert Haze' as a base, ELF 'Coral' for the sponged tips & ELF 'Clear' for the top coat.

Think I will try using 3 colours next time!

Lady Bug Says ... Quick Reminder!

Just a quick reminder of the Charity Blog Sale happening over at May Loves Makeup starting tonight at 7pm!

Hope you have all had a great weekend, I went to see Toy Story 3 in 3D yesterday. It was the first film I have seen in 3D and I can't say I was that impressed! I guess films with loads of special effects are probably alot better in 3D than this was(well I would hope they would be!!)
