So this is my first post since not winning the Bath in Fashion Blogger Award... Never mind, there's always next year! We had an amazing day, the catwalk show was so much fun and it was so lovely meeting all the gorgeous girls... Of course big congratulations go to the winner Lorna of Raindrops of Sapphire - very well deserved hun, well done! :))

Thank you to EVERYONE that voted for me, I really appreciate your support and lovely, lovely comments and tweets and Facebook messages... you're all so great. And I'm very proud that I was nominated, seeing as it was the first time I've ever entered myself for anything blogger-related.


*THANKS GUYS I LOVE YOU*

Back to blogger reality then...! The true fashionista that I am is treating you to a faaaabulous outfit of, er, jeans and sweater today. But it is a pretty sweater - a new purchase from Asos that I saw on someone's wishlist (give yourself a shout out in the comments if it was you, sorry I forgot which blogger it was!) - and at least it was brightened by my magenta bag.

Mmmmmm, magenta.

Why say purple or pink when you can say magenta - it's such a great name for a colour I think: Magenta. Sounds so exotic!

Two exciting things to tell you about: I finally have an international giveaway coming up this weekend that I've been promising for a while. Think stunning vintage jewellery.  Come back Sunday for that, then on Monday I have a "proper dressed up" outfit that might just be entered for something for which I'll be needing Facebook votes... I hope I'll get your support again if it's not too much trouble...?!

Have a great weekend everyone,

  2. Sorry I didn't get a chance to speak to you yesterday, it was all a bit rushed!
    I agree with you about the not winning, the support and just being short-listed at all was exciting enough, the catwalk was great fun, and I've found some new to me blogs to read from it. Winners all round, I think.

  21. Totally agree with Pam, you are a winner in many, many ways. This is 'Mint' to perfection, so lovely on you. I couldn't agree more, why say purple or pink when you can say magenta, its such a beautiful and fun word to say.

  33. Lovely Tight jeans ideas. Wearing in summers almost should be simple and short to remain healthier instead of covering in hard dresses. Get more http://onlinefashion.com.au
