Olivia Wilde wears Marchesa

Golden Globe fever has swept the nation!!

Queue mass amounts of sequins, truck loads of tulle and high swept hair do's.

Different bloggers/people of the media are saying many different things about who their best dressed people were. For me these guys were the bestest dressed of the bunch.

The main elements that stood out this year was probably the amount of celebs that chose to wear either green or light brown/grey dresses. Frills/ shoulder detail/sequins/of the shoulder shapes also took centre stage and were featured highly on many dresses.

So who topped your best dressed list?

Someday Summary: Saturday ♥

So I'm currently sitting on my bed, eating a chococcino muffin from good ol' M&S, listening to 'Four Leaf Clover' by Diana Vickers & thinking what to blog about today. Yes, it has been a while since my last post (as always I blame work) & I thought why not do just a simply pimply blog post!

Today I had a major lie in- it was very well deserved as I have worked 8 days solid :S
(pats self on back)

Excuse the slightly dishevelled hair, I just washed it, blow dried it & it is now all fluffy!

I have a slight obsession with these muffins at the moment- literally the only reason I EVER venture into M&S is because of their food! The muffins were on 1/2 price for a pack & seeing as I was tres hungry, brought some & ate 2 in a row!

I am currently reading Marni Nixon's biography (in case you don't know who she is, she was a musical theatre legend & dubbed Audrey Hepburn's voice in My Fair Lady, along with many others)

I was SOOOOO HAPPY to get all of the Gilmore Girls seasons for Christmas (such a guilty pleasure!) & I'm working my way though them- I watched about 6 episodes this morning!

Loving the whole 70's summer vibe at the moment, I was looking for some MEGA flared trousers but came across these daisy printed little babies & thought to myself- how summery!! By the way I think Topshop are the best so far for this look & I love how they have named the collection after the film Abigail's Party :)

I was messing around on the ol' photobooth & made some funny faces. Feel free to have a giggle on me!

Note to self: Need to by Adele's new album.

Plans for today?

Well we are going to go on a 'jolly out', as my mummy likes to put it, to Furniture Village. I can see a lot of people giving a puzzled look to me via the screen.

Number 1: why am I going out with my family, when I'm 20? & Number 2: Why Furniture Village?

Well you see furniture village give complementary cookies and hot drinks to their customers! Yes that is correct- we are going there to get free food!

Also I will be seeing boyfriend laters & will have to then go shopping for din dins as his cupboards are always bare! & then checking out what is on the box (TV).

What is everyones plans for your saturday?

Much Love,
