Lookbook /Chictopia

As you can see these pics were taken the other day! I knew i probably wouldn't get chance to take some photos this morning. Which i didn't, nor did i have time this afternoon. I really love that coat, another Primark bargin about 5 years ago, reminding me slightly of a cape. I'm also rocking the only pair of black jeans i own. I've literally not worn them in years, but having recently realised I've dropped another few pounds they now fit me again!

After some drama, a cancelled train and a few minutes delay my Mum finally got up to Leeds. It was so lovely seeing her, and I'm so much more excited about going home for Christmas in two weeks. We have now decided that from now on we're going to do the shopping in the summer! I cannot cope with Saturday/Xmas shoppers anymore, oh and pushchairs. Don't even get me started of them being smack bang in the middle of the pavement. But anyways, i managed to get some goodies for Matt and Dad and a few bits for Mum. I even treated myself to this & these. I'll tackle the shopping again sometime next week. Oh, i did manage to get this little cutey for £1.50. Least it's now looking slightly Christmasy in the apartment.

Whilst in town, i went to the post office, so all the peeps who've bought items this week they're now on the way to you! I've also decided to take orders up until the 17th December, so get in quick if you want them in time for Christmas. A massive thank you to Alexis, Beth, Emma, Fay, Gemma, Gem, Hannah, Laura, Michelle, Rosa, Rhi, SJ & Tracey for buying a scrabble item from me. If I've missed anyone, let me know!

There's still a stupid amount of snow around here, i kinda get the feeling it's not going anywhere for a while either! It was -8 the other night, crazy amount of cold. I hope you're all enjoying your weeeknd and staying warm!

Ohhhhh totally forgot to mention on Wednesday i randomly found out i'd won tickets to the Clothes show by having my picture featured on What You Wore which is a another site by What Katie Wore. Couldn't believe i'd won! However the tickets were only for today, and obviously i couldn't make it. But amazing none the less!

Your coat is so cute too, I'm looking for a shorter one like that for my christmas, Davids going to get me it but I've no idea where to start looking :( May start my search online, totally agree with you that saturday shopping has became a nightmare at this time of year! uuugh! I had to do all mines a couple of weeks ago when I was off work for a few days. And even then I still felt like having a meltdown. Have a lovely weekend whatever youre upto.
