#BEDM Day 16 - pampering..

Well this is going to be a short post. I might have approximately one trillion shoes and more handbags than I know what to do with, but when it comes to anything else you'd usually expect girls to be into (make-up, hair styles, pampering, etc) I'm a bit of a lost cause.

I think I own two lipsticks (both cheap, one pink, one red and neither worn very often), and a long bubble bath is my idea of Hell.

I suppose the best way to relax, other than in spinning classed or at the gym, is to spend some time with my family or friends, get dressed up and go out for a meal or a drink and a catch-up..if I'm spending my time with someone else, at least I'm not beating myself up or feeling guilty about all of the things I haven't yet done and should be doing.

dress: dickins and jones
owl brooch: vintage street fair, manchester // cardigan: matalan
clutch: dorothy perkins // coat: vintage fair
scarf: charity shop
shoes: Betty London


  1. What a happy outfit : ) Love the sparkly shoes. I'm great at skinare/bodycare routines, but I see them as 'routines' rather than pampering. I always intend to give myself more proper pampering time but it never happens!

  2. That's a gorgeous outfit, love the coat! xxx

  3. I love the owl one :) :)

  4. Probably my fave outfit of yours...ever! That dress, those shoes. Fab!
    I've never really clicked that you're not into make-up, you always look so pretty in your piccies. A natural beauty, you lucky thing!

  5. That dress is lovely and the scarf so cute! :)

  6. You have the best blog name that I have ever seen in my life. Congratulations. xo

  7. That dress is absolutely gorgeous and you look amazing! You made me laugh when you said that a spinning class is your idea of relaxing though, I'm not sure most would agree ;) xoxo

  8. Guess what I don't own any lipsticks! I have such a basic skincare routine. It's a chore, like the hoovering lol. We're all different though so what the hell. And anyway you always look lovely to me. x

  9. That scarf is such a fun print! Love the shoes too :)

  10. those shoes are amazing! I'm always so envious of your heels, need to start strutting around in some myself x

  11. I think that pampering is what ever you do that feels like a treat, spinning would be way down on my list, I tried it once and couldn't feel my legs for 20 minutes afterwards, but if it works for you, and it obviously does, that's all that matters. You'll find me in a hot bubble bath...
    This dress is lovely and speaking of dresses - the one you made for Alex is divine!

  12. You look amazing in that dress and spinning class can work out as relaxation :) I hope you can do the things you want to do soon ^^
