you're going to catch a cold, from the ice inside your soul..



clearly this is an outfit from a few weeks ago now, remember when it was sunny and warm enough to have bare arms?!

ah well, there are things to get excited about in november too, i love fireworks, and sparklers, and am planning a firework themed night with rangers this evening..well, we couldn't stretch to pricey firework displays but we will have sparklers - both real ones outside with plenty of layers on, and also edible ones, which i plan to make with chocolate fingers, dipped into hot water to melt the chocolate on the end, and then dipped into a bowl of sugar strands to make the  'sparkler' end.. as it's something one of the rainbow leaders i was talking to recently told me about, and she said her unit (rainbows are aged 5-7) loved to do, i'm pretty sure it's a safe bet that my rangers (aged 14-17) will love also; it's suprising the way there seems to be such an overlap in the things the two age groups like to do! 

DSC06745i have other fireworks plans for the weekend as well..one with the other ranger unit i am a member of, and also potentially at the weekend as well,  once i have decided what to do with my weekend..so that's all quite exciting..





this dress is an oasis one, bought in the sale section at debenhams when i was in llandudno earlier in the summer with my mum and little sis - i love the style and quality of the oasis 'vintage belle' ranges, and they churn out a new pattern and print or three each year but ultimately keep the styles and shapes the same, which works for me, as i like them, so i do tend to keep my eye on the sale rails for them..this was down to £20 and i think it is definitely worth that - it's fully lined in beautiful green satin and has it's adjustable and/or removeable straps which i think is a nice touch..very pleased!

as for the shoes, i know i have recently posted here about the same pair but in another colour - i have got all three types of these as i really loved the style and print and i kept my eye out for them over the years, and managed to find them all at fairly bargain prices from ebay..i have a list of the irregular choice styles which i would like, although it can be a fruitless search for a long time, mainly as they're all old styles now and don't come up for sale very often..
