Lady Bug Says ... A Little Bit Of Very

I was recently contacted by the PR people at Very about taking part in a blogger Google+ hangout with Fearne Cotton, but unfortunately as I was working I was unable to take part but they have kindly sent me some information about the hangout and Fearne's new range.

You can see the video of Fearne chatting to some lovely bloggers here and view her new collection full of some pretty amazing dresses here.

Disclaimer - I have been compensated by Very for posting about the Fearne Cotton Google + Hangout, but I do genuinely love the collection, especially this dress!

Lady Bug Says ... Big Wheeling!

Evening :)

On Sunday I spent a lovely day with my Mum and Sister, filled with a farm shop breakfast, a spot of shopping, swimming in the wave pool, a trip on a big wheel and a yummy carvery dinner! A busy but fun day :)

The wheel was a little bit bigger than I anticipated, especially as I am not a big fan of heights, but I was fine as long as everyone kept pretty still! There were some pretty great views of Torbay to be seen too!

My sister with her pretty ombre hair, my beautiful Mum and me, all looking a little worse for wear as we had just been swimming!

Trusty grey flatforms! - H&M £20
Patterned jeans - H&M £20
Grey jumper - Next £12
Leather Jacket - Primark via Ebay £25
Necklace - Primark £5

Outfit total - £82

Yes, I am aware I live in this jumper and necklace combo, I am just getting my moneys worth!

Lady Bug Says ... Boux Avenue - Bristol Cabot Circus Opening

I was lucky enough to be invited to the opening of the latest Boux Avenue store in Cabot Circus in Bristol earlier on this week, an invite I couldn't really turn down. It meant a lovely day off work, meeting some gorgeous blogging ladies and viewing more pretty underwear than I could possibly justify purchasing!

I loved the sleek boudoir feel of the store, especially the small tablet screens dotted around showing what the underwear looks like on a beautiful moving model. If only my own bum looked so good in a pair of pretty knickers!

I'm also completely sold on their way of displaying underwear, so much so that I can't imagine ever wanting to rifle through over stuffed rails of bras again! The beautiful counter top displays are accompanied by pull out drawers beneath, each neatly labelled with a different size. No having to look through what seems like hundreds of bras to only find they don't have your size anyway! With them stocking everything from a 30A to a 40H I'm pretty sure there will be something for everyone!

I was impressed by the range they stock, everything from simple basics and girly bralets to lacey numbers and super soft pyjamas. They have also branched into lovely scented products including candles, hand creams and yummy body butters.

The dressing rooms are pretty much how I need my house to look! Plush carpets, panelled walls, a variety of mood lighting and a discrete intercom concierge service, so no sticking your head out the door asking for a bigger size!

I also managed to get a picture taken with the main man himself, Mr Theo Paphitis and blogging lovelies Katie and Lily

On our way out we also received a lovely goody bag, I will show you the contents in my next post!

Thank you Boux AvenueFluorescent PR and the below ladies for a fab day!

Lady Bug Says ... A Daisy Update

I recently asked if you would all like a puppy updated and some of you said yes, so I thought I would let you all know how she is doing!

She is now nearly 16 weeks old and has been home with use for nearly 8 weeks. During that time she has more than doubled in weight and increased even more in overall size! She has learnt so much and is now completely toilet trained and knows a wide variety of commands including sit, stay, lie down, paw, roll over, come and leave it. She has also just about mastered going up and down the stairs. It has actually surprised me how quickly she has learnt things! She can now go out for walks and has discovered a love of the beach, especially swimming in the sea and digging in the sand, she isn't so fond of having to have a bath afterwards though! She also loves playing with ice cubes, eating cold carrots and sleeping on the sofa.

So on with the cute photos, I can't believe how much she has grown!

At 9 weeks old, chewing leaves and barely able to get up onto the decking!

11 weeks old and not quite getting how to play with the Frisbee!

12 weeks old and enjoying sleeping in the kitchen whilst I am cooking dinner!

14 weeks old and loving her new toy!

15 weeks old and nearly too big for her favourite corner!

15 weeks and claiming her favourite spot on the sofa!

Lady Bug Says ... These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things!

Evening :)

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and made the most of the sunshine if you got any! I spent mine relaxing on the beach with friends, having an evening BBQ then camping over in our camper van literally 25 meters from the sea. It was also Daisy's first time at a sandy beach :) I will do a little puppy update soon if anyone is interested? 
Today has inevitably resulted in us being very tired so lots of lounging on the sofa eating bacon sandwiches,  watching YouTube and cuddling up with the dog.

I thought I would share with you all an outfit that I wore last weekend for a meal out with the Mr's family. As the posts title suggests this outfit is made up of pretty much all my favourite things in my wardrobe at the moment.

As soon as I saw this jacket in the Primark AW12 preview I knew I wanted it, I wanted it so much that I actually sent an email to my sister and a few friends saying that if they saw the jacket in store to please please please buy it for me! The pleather detail trousers were actually a suprising summer sale find in Next along with the marl jumper, to me they seem pretty perfect for the upcoming season! The necklace was a holiday purchase that I am pretty pleased with, can't say I have seen anyone else wearing it and don't think I will! It brings a little originality to my otherwise very high street outfit. A favourite things outfit wouldn't be complete without these flatforms, so worn to death I recently bought a back up pair, though I was a little disappointed that the new pair have squared off toes rather than round, but still as comfortable as the originals!

Flatform heels, H&M £20
Pleather stripe trousers, Next £8
Grey marl jumper, Next £12
Pleather sleeved parka, Primark £25

Necklace, French jewellery boutique £20

Knuckle rings, Kukee £1.50 each
Nails, Barry M 'Pink Flamingo' with LOOK Beauty 'Sequin Effect' top coat

Outfit total - £88
