My May

*Excited to read the New Miss Vogue that came in the post with this month's Vogue. Nice little magazine full of beautiful pieces and some good teen issues. * Topshop voucher packaging this season is really pretty, bright bold prints with a neon pink card inside (birthday vouchers). * The end result of my birthday vouchers - the most amazing pair of wedge espadrilles and a bargain at only £42.00!! Avaliable in a variety of bold summer colours. Have only worn once so far due to the British weather. * Went to Birmingham with my good friend and fellow blogger FashionLind and discovered Selfridges have chosen some old school themes, with neon Trolls scattered around the young fashion floor with slogans like "Wear it your way" and an Ascot theme in the shoe/designer area with a lilac coloured horse centre stage and pastel My Little Pony dolls dotted around on handbags and in shoes! A unique VM display (more pictures on my Instagram). * I seem to have a soft spot for any insect related jewellery, this cute butterfly necklace was a must have from good old Topshop. Think i may need to go back and get the matching brooch! * My new handbag - Gorgeous Celine Inspired purchase from Ebay. * My favourite piece bought this year so far! A Teb Baker shopper, a classic piece that i have been eyeing up for months now but when i saw this rainbow coloured Taxi cab print (a special print in celebration of 25 years of TB) i had to have it - perfect for work. 

* Topshop packaging for their quirky jewellery pieces, something a little different to the ususal black used and who doesn't like a cute Pug. * A couple of my favourite photos from my leaving night out. I had worked at the company for nearly 5 years and had a joint leaving night out with one of my friends - a truly great night with many drunken stories. These pics are of the ladies and gents on my team who i will truly miss, as they are all as crazy as me! 
* WEMBLY!!! This was a treat for me and hubby as our local team were in the final against Bradford. Although a disapointing loss for Northampton Town it was nice to go and experience such a beautiful stadium. * As part of our day at Wembley, we caught the train from Bicester so a trip to the shopping village was a must on the way home. I treated myself to a beautiful amythest ring from Pandora as a new job treat. I also made the obligatory trip into the Mulberry store - i feel rude if i don't take my Tillie bag back to the mothership to visits all the other bags! Sadly no purchases however even a quick visit leaves my tingling!!

* A couple of old pics i found recently that i love - firstly me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. A beautiful picture that for me really captured the spirit of the day. Sadly i only have the proof image hence the words across it but still love it. The second was a work Christmas party with a masquerade theme, this is a rare pic of me and my husband as he is quite a such guy and won't pose for pics often.  * Best picture of my little Willow so far - she looks like a little Gremlin peering out from behind our futon. * A collection of moodboards created to show inspirational images i have collected on Pinterest over the last month or show. Since the creation of sites like Pinterest there is such a wide array of image available - from fashion and interiors to food and cute animals. I enjoy spending a Sunday afternoon browsing and pinning. * Before starting any new job a trip to Paperchase is a must in my books! There is nothing like new stationary to start a new job with. As per usual i went a little mad as i like to have my own pretty stationary rather than the usual office supplies - amongst my purchases were a great desk diary and a neon pink notebook which i think made a bold first impression in the office and i definitely won't loose it!!, both avaliable at Paperchase. * My new "leather" jacket from H&M. I have been on the look out for a black leather jacket now for months but have never found one that fitted perfectly until i stumbled across this beauty in my local H&M store and an absolute bargain at £29.99! * My first peonies of 2013. Ever since i had these gorgeous flowers in my wedding bouquet i have loved them and it was a nice surprise to find finally find them in my local florist. Officially spring/summer now they have arrived!

Due to my busy work load with starting a new job, posts may be a little sporadic over the next few months so please don't forget to follow me on Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram below to keep up with what's happening in my glittery world.
