Monday Smiles

The heat wave continues  :)  I like to rather smugly think that I brought the sunshine to Newcastle.  I think since moving two months ago we've only had 3 or 4 days of heavy rain .. amazing!   Next weekend I have my first friend from the South visiting so I'm just hoping that this amazing weather is still around for then, I want to be able to show off the beautiful North East in the sun.

Lots of things to get excited about this week. First piece of news, there's a Starbucks opening next door to my work ... WOOOOOOOOO!  This was met by mostly grumbles in my office, but having just moved from London it has to be said I've really missed having a coffee chain on my doorstep, and I'm happy that I now have somewhere warm to sit in the Winter months and watch TV on my laptop.   Secondly, our favourite hotel, Jesmond Dene House is having a refurbishment and the new works are going to include a spa, can't wait for it to open.

Here are some Monday Smiles: 


  1. Just caught up with your Blog. Great to hear things are going so well. Looking as fab as ever! x

  2. Hiya I am a new follower to your blog and I wanted to say I love your blog its so cute. I noticed you did a post on your buys at the Metro centre and you bought the floral shirts from New Look. I just wondered if you could tell me how long they are...can you wear them with skinny jeans? I think they are really cute but I like my shirts longish not cropped or short?
    Thanks xx

  3. Awwwwwwww thanks :) I'm so new to this so it's so lovely to get such a nice comment.

    Yes the floral shirts are long, I'm like you and don't like cropped tops (don't want attention drawn to my bum and tummy!) They really are a great buy - so far I've worn them with skinny jeans, a maxi skirt and also wore one to work this week with a pencil skirt and it was lovely and cool in the hot weather yet still looked smart :)
