Sorry for my lack of blogging this week, its not that I forgot... Its been on my mind but I've just been really busy and sometimes there just aren't enough hours in a day. Most of my half term has been taken up by work. I have two jobs so I have a lot to fit in as most days I'm working day and night. At least I've got payday to look forward too.
Other than work this week, I've been shopping. Twice actually. But yesterday I didn't buy a single thing, except some nail polish and beauty products! I went shopping with my family to Newcastle Metro Centre on Tuesday which was immense! I went a bit crazy and spent over £100 in Primark... but in my defense thats a lot of stuff! I couldn't resist! It felt so refreshing to see all the spring stock. Pussybows, florals and midi skirts. I'm loving the 70s vibe to SS11! I bought some lovely things and I'm quite excited to blog about them :) so watch this space...
I wear this outfit a lot. It has become very 'me'. You can't see from the pictures but I'm wearing some striped button earrings which match my top haha. The trousers look very pink on these photos but they're more of a brown colour in reality. My old faithful denim brogues are looking a tad tatty and I need some tan loafers to make me happy but I'm yet to find the perfect pair.
I had a lovely day on Friday watching movies, playing dress-up and chilling with my friends Rose and Jodi. And then on friday night (my only night off this week) a group of us went out bowling and for a meal with was really nice. Gosh I love my friends!
What do you think of my new blog title? Instead of the floral 'monicabarleycorn' pattern which I was getting bored of I thought I'd find a picture to represent my blog a bit easier. I like it, but I wish it wasn't as big.
Love Monica,xxx
