Clothes, drinks, pizza and a car…

It’s been a busy past couple of days. I’ve been updating my CV, looking up several recruitment agencies and photocopying this and that. I will hopefully finish it all today and post everything tomorrow. Say a little prayer for me, for I’ve never applied for a job before, and the process scares me a bit. Hopefully everything will end up well – ideally, me with a job.

The Karen Millen dress is no longer 😦 Yes, that’s right. When I decided to buy the black one because I don’t normally go for black ones and thought this one would be nice to have, my size disappeared! I felt like thumping my head across the wall for not grabbing it and buying it earlier, but there you go. I’m sure greater black dresses will cross my path later on in life. Hopefully when I get a job and start earning something, that’ll be much sooner than later!

At least I got the shoes:

My new babies!

We had a wonderful weekend! Friday night we went to our friends’ house for Cocktails Night. We had lovely jars of Pimms and Prosecco and Aperol cocktails. We were totally hammered by the end of the night, and it was lovely. I woke up to find my fingernails painted red, and remembered that during the drunken evening, Nat (the beautician friend) wanted to do my nails. I had some smudges, but overall they were surprisingly okay!

The end result 🙂

Saturday morning we went for a test drive because A wants a car. We went to a local showroom, had the drive, A fell in love with the car, the salesman worked his magic on me (I think he realized that at the end of the day if the woman doesn’t give her go-ahead, the sale never goes through), took ME for a test drive, I went loco as well, and we bought the car!! I wanted a sensible 4-door car but we ended up getting anything but! It’s fast, 2-door crazy machine which is perfect. Of course I get first dibs on our next one, which will definitely be a family-friendly one. This car can remain A’s toy:) So now we have to wait for a week on Thursday to have it! In the evening, we had our friends over at our place, and we had Pizza Night. We did our pizza bases ourselves and did some very interesting toppings – all thanks to Jamie Oliver! I’d definitely recomment the grapes, pine nuts and sugar one!!

We spent Sunday rummaging around the city looking for further things for the flat, we then cooked some yummy lasagne and spent the rest of the day in our jammies watching TV, drinking tea and fell asleep watching Notting Hill. Life is good 🙂

…And I’ll probably sin again!!

So I just came back from Karen Millen and the sale is still going on. And the yellow/black dresses are available in my sizes and they’re both still there. So I’ve decided to risk the sale being still on till tomorrow, will take A with me there tomorrow and I’ll model the dresses for him and see which one to choose because I’m totally undecided.

Will keep you updated!!

Forgive me, but I have sinned…again!

So I went to the High Street yesterday afternoon, intending only to pop by M&S and stock up on some greens and fruit. And on the way there I passed by Karen Millen, and saw the magical words written on their display “20% off sale price”. I kept walking past by because my bank cards were silently crying for me not to go in, but the temptation was too strong and I eventually entered the shop….and found the cutest pair of shoes ever. Violet peep-toes with a big sequineed bow on the side of the shoes and medium-height heels. They’re simply adorable and are quite comfy as well due to their heel size because I usually always go for the highest-yet-most-uncomfortable-heel ever. They were very reasonably priced – I got them for £30 when their original price was £135!

They're similar to this pair, but violet in colour and with a bow instead of a corsage at the side. Please bear with my absence of a camera :S

I found this beautiful satin jewel top which I also bought.

The price clinched the sale for me!

And then I found this dress…

They have it in yellow and black and I love the ruffles at the end! I love the dresses the store stocks. They’re all fairytale-like with beautiful colours and the most amazing material I have ever set my eyes on! They’re definitely eye-candy!! I still haven’t bought this dress but I’m popping by there today just to see if it’s in my fate to have it or not. The salesgirl told me that the sale would be ending very soon, so I’m hoping to find it still today. The only thing I’m unsure about is the colour. I loved the yellow and they have it in my size, but black is more elegant. Ah choices, choices and choices!!
