Outfit Post - In the Senedd

Just a little outfit post of our trip to the bay last week. We decided to check out the Senedd building  - which is the Welsh Assemble Government Building as we had never been in before, even though we have lived in Cardiff for 6 year. So here are just a few quick snaps we took 
Dress: Oasis

Anyone else had good weather this week?
Our has been great this week, but it's looking grey today. Hopefully a big down pour will clear the air and we shall have some more sun next week.

Here is my...lots of weeks via instagram

2. Blue Sky over Cardiff Bay - Super hot here at the mo, I got bad sunburn!
3&4. Me and Jon did a photo shot with Gemma of Vintage Gem Vintage Shop in Cardiff and it went really well. See more pictures here - they really are beautiful, we are very happy as it was our first model shoot. If your interested in photos get in touch as we are still looking for people to shoot.
 Just a few random outfits!

 Oh heck more food! Mine and Jons trip to Red Hot Buffet! He refused to smile so took this silly face instead!

And a very special baby gift I have been working on - just hope she doesn't read my blog! They will have ribbon to hang them eventually I think.

So that was lots of pictures!
Birthday present update next time and have a few outfits to catch up on I think.

Is everyone else enjoying some good weather at the mo? Wales is so warm at the moment, we are just not used to it!

Links and Love

1. I wrote an interesting hub about things you can buy for £1
2. The eurovision - well what can you say! This was our entry, Irelands entry, the winner and probably one of the most talked about
3. Went to the Cardiff Olympic Gig to see this amazing lady
4. Planning on buying a bento box for pack lunches in work but can't decide which one. Any suggestions?
5. Jon bought me some shoes (and dresses) for my birthday - which I will show you in a post this week, but I really love this new brand they were from, like a grown up, sophisticated version of Irregular Choice and far more comfy!

So there you have my last few weeks

Hope your all having fun and the sun, but don't forget the sunscreen

Another Paris Post - This ones naughty!

Ok ladies this is a pre warning!!! Although not a picture heavy warning like usual - a naughty warning! If you are easily offended please do not read any further.

Ok now that the warning is out of the way - this post is dedicated to a menu, yes a menu! When in Paris having amazing food in the little restaurant overlooking the Notre Dame Cathedral there was a menu! But not just any menu! Ok so the food inside was amazing but I mean the actual menu itself.

First it was a daily newspaper! I know amazing! It was printed like a proper newspaper with their menu for each day and their drinks menu and specials menu.
So thats amazing point number 1 (ok so not offensive yet)
 This is the rest of the menu - the naughty part. Its brilliantly funny, and at first I didn't even realise it was rude until I re-read it. 
Here is the naughty cocktail menu! Enjoy!

Hehe! See funny! Hope you have all had a little giggle now and it has brightened up your Sunday!

Have you ever been somewhere with a naughty menu?

Aren't they all amazing! So beautiful and individual.
Which would you buy?

Do you ever have one of those days (or weeks) where you just feel like money doesn't stretch far enough and you wish you could just blow a few thousand recklessly?

 Well If money was no object I would quite possibly buy some of these stunning, edgy items from Italian Brand Nottevera. Their based in New York but you can buy online.

 I seriously love every piece...Now where is that lottery ticket?

What do you think? Is this a brand you have heard of before?
Which item is your favourite?

I know I'm not usually a make-up blogger but I've been fancying trying mineral make up for a while as I have sensitive skin on my eyes and think that non-chemical make-up may be the way to go.  is one of the sites I have found that sell a stunning array of mineral make up at great prices - you just have to email them for postage costs.

These are the current colours I am considering, which do you like? And which do you think I should order? They have such stunning colours!

All mineral eyeshadows are $13 plus postage

 All Mineral Lipsticks are $12 plus postage - I didn't even know there was such a thing as mineral lipstick.

Have any of you tried mineral make-up? Do you think it is worth it?

Travel - Bonjour Paris! - Day 2

WARNING: Photo Overload!

Here is the second part of our Paris trip, which contains lots of photos Jon took of the Eiffel Tower! He had fun photographing it, as he loves interesting buildings and things with lots lines and angles.

The second day we saw the Eiffel Tower, the Champs Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe. And had more yummy food!

This is the view I had of Jon for most of the weekend

In case your thirsty at the top! But €10 a tiny glass!

Inside the Arc

So thats our trip! We had a great time, but very busy and hectic, lots to fit in in just 48 hours.
Have you been to the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe?

I will have some more photos at some point as we took 2 film cameras and my Diana so we are waiting for them to be developed.
