There was a time, not long ago, where I'd turn my nose up at swing dresses, smocks and the like. Although I had a few in my wardrobe, I found them to be unflattering, and so they generally went unloved. Recently though, I'm loving that they're just something a little different, even if they do whisper 'maternity.' Plus, in the run up to Christmas, I could probably do with the extra forgiving room anyway. I can blame my food baby on the dress, ha! This one was about £10 from eBay, and is pretty good for layering too!

I'm off Christmas shopping with my mum today, and I know it'll be a nightmare - I can't really stand super busy shopping centres! Theres a bright side though, H. Samuel have a 25% discount off all watches until Tuesday 3rd, so I'm planning on treating myself to a discounted Casio watch, and maybe I'll pick something up for Dan too. Honestly, I'm so bad at Christmas shopping. For every gift I buy, I tend to end up buying something for myself too, oops! I should probably stick to online shopping really...

What're you doing this weekend?
Have you opened your advent calendar?

  2. I love this dress, I am ordering one as I type! Just wondering from your experience what are the Mavala nail polishes like? I want to know if they are good quality as I love their Autumn 2013 colours and will be ordering some

    1. Yeaaah, hope you love it! You'll have to let me know how you get on! I love Mavala, probably my favourite types! Some of the lighter colours need 2 coats but I think thats fairly standard :) x
