Day 12

Day 12 of the beautiful mess self- portrait challenge (read about it here) .. I am sorting my wardrobe out and trying to create more outfits out of the clothes I have and then deciding which clothes don't  go and then i'm selling them. ..

Making old things new..

Dress Tescos (old)
Bag Primark (old)
Shoes £2 car boot
Necklace gift
Ring Primark
Bracelets Homemade
Kaftan Warehouse

I've had this kaftan for ages and never really wear it unless i'm on a beach, and that doesn't happen too often and wont be happening again any time soon. I really like the pretty little jacket\ throw overs you can get in Topshop and River Island recently. So I decided to just cut this kaftan down the middle and use it as a little jacket to make my pink dress a bit more exciting.. I really like the effect, I might sew some beads onto it as well to give it something extra.. 
These photos were taken yesterday but after all the excitement of having my lovely friends round for dinner last night I ran out of time to post them.. We all had a lovely time eating lots and gossiping and giggling!! A perfect evening..
Today Im going to see my lovely friends Louise & Darren & their baby boy !! Who is only three days old!! He is so cute!!! 
Anyway must dash and go get ready.. 
Hopefully I will be able to post another outfit post on her later!...

The children that I nanny for & myself went to Gullivers Dinosaur park yesterday, It was lovely and sunny and they really enjoyed it. If your children love dinosaurs and are under 9 they would love it.
We walk around all the dinosaurs and read all the information about them, we looked at fossils , dug for bones and fossils, went on a boat trip and their favourite bit was panning for gold and jems.
The staff are all lovely especially Luke , he was very helpful and told the children all about the dinosaurs which they loved. 
So it was a great day followed by a swim at home in the evening and watching a film! -Prefect day.
Once I finished work I went to our local pub with my hubby for dinner and after we came home and feel asleep whilst watching a movie! Perfect day!
Now im going to eat a yummy egg and bacon bap and watch more movies!! Lush ...
