Just a quick weekend update as I am currently nursing 2 sick children at home! One with a head cold and one with a sore tummy – both glued to Phineas and Ferb. I feel like I am stuck in Groundhog Day. My children seem to be able to watch the same episode over and over and find it equally hilarious each time.
My weekend in Charlotte was fabulous. I left on my own on Friday for the Bachelorette/shower party and then my Husband arrived on Saturday. It was brutally cold but enough alcohol was imbibed and enough laughter had to keep the blood warm and flowing! The party on the Friday evening was held at the Charlotte City Club and it was great fun to catch up with the Bride-to-be and old and new friends.
I wore my Stuart Weitzman Highland boots and my AllSaints Hafbec knitted dress, with the Warehouse Teddy coat for warmth. A comfortable outfit that I felt warm and stylish in. The lipstick is NARS Palais Royale lip pencil.
Thankfully we had a limo provided – I felt like a true Real Housewife in our stretch Hummer!
I was super excited on Saturday for the arrival of my Husband. The last time we had a night away together without the kids was for my 40th 3 years ago! This was long overdue! I wore my AllSaints Haff sweater, Theory leather leggings (mine are midnight blue but TheOutnet.com also has them in black now!) and Vince Claire heels in woodsmoke. The lipstick is Mac Snow Orchid. My Husband delivered a new jacket for me too! The Zara fur in charcoal – I adore it – a perfect color! It fits small and I have the Large.
While I remember – leather pants/leggings – you think you would need to professional dry clean them right? Wrong. I found this article on Pinterest and took a leap of faith with my Theory pants the other night. I doused them under the tap with warm water, inside out, then threw them in the tumble dryer. I swear they came out perfect and I get to save a fortune on dry cleaning bills!
So now it’s back to reality with a thud – we’re now cycling through Johnny Test episodes…
Your hair looks freaking amazing! I love your outfit so much.
Hope the smalls are better soon
I think I have the hair and products down to a fine art now – I have tested nearly every pomade and wax on the market! xx
You look amazeballs!!! Love both of those outfits.
Oooh thank you – I always feel fabulous in a bit of AllSaints even if my wallet doesn’t!
Ooh my lovely cousin lives in Charlotte. You look snuggly in your new coat and jacket. I reckon that hair is giving you another 4 inches in height x
As we say in the South – the bigger the hair the closer to God:)
I can’t believe you put leather in the tumble dryer Joanna! Well done for testing this out! x
Yes I know – I was on pins while they spun round!!! Not sure I’d do it with my jackets but for stretchy leather pants it worked perfectly!
You look amazing!!! And your skin is flawless!! Would love to see a makeup post soon xx
Why thank you Sallie!!! I am really enjoying my makeup at the moment – I’ve been watching vloggers like Vivianna does makeup and Maskcara. I tend to wear more makeup in the winter – always start with Shiseido Ultimune – expensive serum but lasts forever as you only need a tiny drop. Then I have been using L’Oreal True Match foundation in W3 with the matching powder. I have fallen in love with cream blushed and love the Maybelline mousse ones. My eyes and lips are were I spend some money – Anastasia brow pencil and pomade, Naked palettes, Tarte mascara, maybelline gel eyeliner or Sephora colored chubby sticks, then lips are always Nars or Mac with some cheap dupes thrown in my purse from Rimmel and Revlon. Will definitely get in front of the mirror for a post soon. Oh and brushes – I swear by the Real Technique brushes – I get all mine off Amazon. xx
