PRESENTS FROM NEW YORK

Hiya everyone how are you all today? What does everyone else do on their normal lazy sunday? Today  me and Chris actually did something, we went to a christening. It was Chris' wee cousin, Arianne. She looked gorgeous in a wee white flowery dress! We went to a smallish church in one of the surrounding villages, Houston, then we went and had a buffet. I have now mastered the whole buffet thing, i used to be so shy at taking food. Now im not worried about piling my plate full of food! I was pretty stuffed, i don't feel bad about eating so much though because it was all pretty healthy stuff. 

I thought this outfit was perfect for the event. I had worn it before but i have been really wanting somewhere to wear it again and for some kind of event so last night it just came to me that i should wear this again. I didn't get a chance to photograph it before. The dress was actually a present from Chris and he chose it. I have actually fallen in love with this dress and the whole outfit. I think it just fits perfectly and the shape is gorgeous. Green is also one of my favourite colours, so i think he's done a fantastic job! So proud of him, he is very good at picking things out for me. I think im going to do 2 outfits chosen by him each month then post them, i have very good faith in him. The shoes were an absolute steal! When i first laid my eyes on them i had to have them, i fell in love. They are Carvela by Kurt Geiger heels and at an original intimidating £160 originally, i got them for £50! I found them on ebay and were only worn once.

I nearly didn't have them because i contacted the seller and offered £50 for them, she said that wasn't enough. So she just let them be bid on and they went for £30. A few days later i received a message from the seller saying it was a time waster and if i still wanted them for £50! I didn't really have the money but i couldn't say no i just had to have them and be silly with money. I do always think things through before i purchase things so i very rarely hardly just have a reckless buy. They are pretty high, but they are so damn comfy! Ive been wearing them all day, walking around and nothing. 

Sorry my legs are so pale :P its what scotland does to you! Tell a lie ive always been pale!
