I have always wanted one of these rockabilly style cardigans, but never liked the print on them, till I happened upon this sugar skull goodness!
Opium was a fave scent of mine growing up as my mom used to wear it, so when I saw that they'd revamped and bought a new perfume I knew I needed to try it, and Im glad I did, its so gorgeous. It's a bold statement smell, just the kind I like!
As we all know, I'm a phone case fiend, so when I saw this cutie, I knew I had to get it asap!
I'm gonna wait for a few more china post items to fill my basket till I order it.
The Lime Crime Velvetine Lipsticks just look good, can you blame me for wanting one?
This lil backpack doubles as a standard handbag and a backpack so naturally I love it, plus its tan coloured and I do LOVE a tan bag! This is another one I'll be keeping in my basket for a china post order soon.
Okay, just stop right now and look at these slippers, how can you not NEED them?
They're the cutest ever!
I have a few jackets now with fur hoods, but I really wanna bring the fur off into my normal wardrobe like over a blazer, so I've decided I'm going to get a lush fur stole and make this happen!
Then come summer, I can store it away for another winter to come.
Finally, these cutsie vans, I love vans and specially with it being wet recently, it's always good to have a spare pair of trainers handy. These are just sweet and hello, its animal print AND hello kitty. Need I say more?
That's it for my wishlist, what are you currently coveting?
At the weekend we decided to go for a nice meal for lunch.
We are pretty picky as a family when it comes to eating out because we have ran our own food restaurant before so we have a certain standard we expect.
But we certainly don't mind paying for that standard.
So we went to Sheffield city centre, went for a nice walk through town and through the Winter Gardens and when we came out we stumbled upon Piccolino.
Its an authentic Italian joint, this is made very clear by the smells as you walk into the place, and the old style bread cutting machine, olives being handed out and the charming Italian waiters walking around humming and being jolly.
The Iconic Sheffield Silver balls just out the front of this place help top add a special touch to the look of this place.
We got a bowl of fresh cut rustic bread, it was still warm from the oven, it smelt delicious, covered in herbs. There's a little bowl ready for your olive oil and balsamic vinegar, I couldn't wait to dig in and get dipping. I love anything that gets dipped in balsamic vinegar so this ticked the boxes for me!
We ordered a table starter of Calamari which we ate so fast I didnt get time to take a decent pic.
It came with about 10 rings, which is surprising. We all chomped away whilst talking to one of the waiters about Italy and the village he grew up in.
For mains I had a chicken dish called Pollo Alla Valdostana.
It's Chicken breast with Prosciutto and Fontina Cheese, battered in breadcrumbs and friend in light butter. It was served on a bed of peppers, tomato and onions with capers and a pesto sauce.
It was sublime!
Dad had a steak and Mom had a veal cutlet.
For dessert I had a Coppa Di Ciocolata which is a Sundae really.
Made with a mix of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, hazelnuts and chocolate sauce with champaign infused pears and biscotti.
I love hazelnuts so this was a nice treat for me. The pears were a surprise, I didn't realise they had champaign in them but it really worked well with all the flavours.
Some more of the interior.
I am so happy to have found this place.
It cost just shy of £100.00 including a tip but its so worth it for the exceptional service and hospitality shown. AND to finally find somewhere that serves Veal. I know it's not everyone's cuppa tea, almost everyone in this country does not agree with veal at all, but for us veal is a firm fave.
I think we will definitely return here.
Have you found any new hidden gems of the food world?
It was normally quite rare to see me in jeans but now its become a regular thing.
I'm just so glad I finally found some jeans I can feel comfortable in.
I first saw these on Rachel and popped into my local Simply Be for a quick try on session and fell inlove. I bought them there and then.
Arent they just perfect?
They fit tight to my legs and really create that skinny jean look without hurting me, and theyre super stretchy. I can actually wear them like old granny style right over my belly and not feel like they dig in.
Here's my little try on sesh pics, I was particularly pleased at how lovely they looked on my bum!
I've worn these on a more relaxed look with a baseball t and trainers.
Here's the light acid wash ones too.
I haven't worn these as much, yet as I got them ordered with the pink ones after I got the indigo ones, but I can definitely say they're going to make a few appearances each week. These jeans are so versatile!
