OOTD: Day Out With Bestie, Baby and Bump :)

I proper love days out with my bestie I do.
She's just the coolest.
And no I'm not referring to the BFF I fawned over in my last blog post to you all...
Sadly, I don't carry a green spray bottle of Dettol around in my handbag a la Paris Hilton Pooch style, spending full days together travelling on trains and taking snaps together on Instagram while I push it on a swing...
I'm sure you're all relieved.

No, this time, I mean a REAL HUMAN BEING.
No really, she kicks my green BFF's ass.
Not least because in just three months time this little *yes Lisa it IS small* bump she's been carrying around with her, (thankfully NOT in Paris Hilton Pooch Bag style, that would be weird) will become a gorrrrgeous little niece or nephew for me to spoil, and a little brother or sister for the unbelievably beautiful daughter she already brought into the world two years ago.

This brings me alllll kinds of excitement.
I have already mentally spent my life savings, (about three quid) on them both at least six hundred times over.
Mainly in the Next Childrenswear section.

Literally, I was so excited, that my left and most obedient leg almost made a dash for it out of the smaller-than-average-but-still-very-much-there split in my skirt!

Remind me to wear jeans on her due date.
Can't get to the hospital legless now can I?

What I wore:

Skirt: Primark £3
Jumper: H&M £14.99
Boots: New Look £24.99
Necklace: Lion Necklace £1.59
Earrings: Mum.

So on commenced our more than fabulous day out in Leeds...
We ate, browsed, shopped, lusted after a million homeware items, and dressed about a hundred future children (only one of which is in the oven right now and it's not mine!) and came home in time for me to take some pictures for your viewing pleasure hahaaa... ;)

That is, until realising something scarier than the shockingly real Halloween mask I wear every morning at 5.45am.
I ventured all the way to Leeds with *shock horror and gasps* NO EARRINGS IN.
*I'll just give that a moment to settle*

I felt naked.
As nekkid as the day I was born.
As though I'm listening to the delightful melody that is Justin Timberlake's 'Senorita'.
He'll have your ears nekkid, by the end of this song.
By the end of the song my earrings had escaped in true right leggage style and run off to hunt down that fine piece of humanity.

The situation was almost so desperate that I considered buying a pair of earrings to wear, but yet I returned home earringless still, and for the purpose of my photo's my mumsie provided me with these cute little gold balls!

All hail my mum and most avid reader; she knows what my readers (herself) like and that is ACCESSORIES.

I wanted warmth and TGI's food baby coverage on this particular day, so I went for my new extra warm, extra large, and extra cosy fluffy jumper, which I've been lusting after since seeing one like it here on the fabulously styled Helen from 'The Lovecats Inc' (L-L-Looovecats).
I made it my mission to wear black and fluff like her, and in my mission I have succeeded yerrrrr.

I wore it with my favourite bargain of the moment; this Primarni £3 bargain of a skirt!
Pretty sure I'll be getting lots of wear for it's worth, seeing as it's already been worn three days this week and could do with a wash.
Trampy girl I am...

On my face I wore my two new MAC eyeshadow additions, (can I get an ooooh?) 'Naked Lunch' and 'Charcoal Brown', both of which are stunning and look awesome with my favourite and oh-so-famous Rimmel - 107 berry lip!

So that concluded my day, with my bestie, baby, bump - and her lovely mum!
I could have done with buying another bottle of my BFF while I was at it, as it's had some hefty use this week and is *sob* almost dead...
That way my day filled with life's lovelies would have been complete, and I really would have donned the Paris Hilton Pooch Bag, but in a totally unique Dettol Mould and Mildew Remover fashion.

It's the new black.

...but not of the mould variety.

  8. Letting you in on a secret.... I don't even have my ears pierced. I have the smallest lobes EVER. So I'm always nekkid ;)
