Rainy days and giveaways

Dress: Twik / Sweater: Topshop via Olivia / Necklace: Urban Outfitters
Earrings: Swarovski / Socks: ASOS
Today is rainy and there's hardly any sun. I'm disappointed because I had planned on doing another outdoor outfit shoot with a gorgeous silk maxi skirt. I'm not about to risk getting 100% silk drenched, so I opted to stay in and grab a quick few photos of my back up outfit. Not nearly as exciting, I know! Plus, the light was coming in at a really odd angle so you get to see a glimpse of my bedroom. Exciting?? Today I'm wearing the sweater I bought from Olivia's blog sale. I suppose she'd call it a jumper... anyways, I'm really happy with it and think I'll be able to wear it all throughout the summer since it's really not heavy at all. :) As I write this, my husband has taken the car into the dealership to have the winter tires taken off. Then, I've got to run to the post office to pick up a package that's been waiting for me there since Thursday (oopsies) and deposit my pay check... that I've had since Wednesday. This week was all about procrastination for me! I was hoping to go see a movie this evening but don't know if that's going to actually happen on account of I really can't pick one to see! If you've seen anything good lately - let me know. It doesn't have to be spectacular since we're using a gift card hehe. Now for the exciting news... I've got a winner for my Cake Beauty giveaway! I used Random.org to maintain absolute fairness and random-ness and the winner is Cathy Showan! Thank you Cathy for already getting in touch with me (I announced the giveaway winner on Twitter yesterday). I'll be shipping out your goodies first thing next week!

      It is! I wish the sleeves were a tiny bit longer but I’m pretty happy with it – considering it was super cheap!

      Hope you like them! The scrub is my personal favourite. They used to have a Barbie line… those ones smelled like freshly baked cookies!
