OOTD: V By Very (Ad)

Image
Anyone who knows me (including the team at Very themselves who let me choose my own outfit!) knows I am obsessed with Very and I love it's variety of clothing and everything else you could possibly want.
Very is also handy for being able to buy something when you needed it urgently just before payday as you can buy now and pay later using a credit account if you so wish (which I do regularly... woops!) Just before Christmas me and Nick planned a last minute date night for the night after and thanks to Very, I managed to order a whole new outfit at 5pm for it to arrive the next morning.

I love this look as it's all very simple but for date night with good make up and curled hair, it just gives that extra little bit of glamour. I'm in love with the Skirt which is possible my favourite piece and the top and bag are clearly also popular as they're both out of stock over the festive season! I just put them all together with a pair of simple boots with a small wedge just …

Empties: Winter Candles

This Christmas Boots brought out their own candles again but 2016 whooped 2015's arse. The Spiced Apple Crumble candle is st…

Novello Lounge Telford

I saved these photos on a draft a good couple of months ago and the shit blogger that I've turned into forgot and never got around to writing a post to go with them! A couple of months ago I was invited to the launch night of the new Novello Lounge Café Bar in Telford so me and Nick went along for the evening to try out their amazing tapas menu and check out the newest hotspot in Telford.
Novello Lounge is in the Southwater area of Telford town centre and has a really modern look outside which you can't miss. It looks really sophisticated and inviting. The interior inside was super chic and relaxed with board games and the art on the walls. It was a cute little place with dim lights which just made you feel so cosy.

We made the rooky mistake of driving as it was free (yes.. free!) food and drink all evening for those who were lucky enough to be invited but it meant that Nick could try the beers that were available and I may have had the 1 cocktail.
The tapas was flowing and…
