Polka Dots

By C.Elizabeth

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you. Love, joy, success, health... Fashion! All you wish for.

I've been wanting to make this post for quite a while now but I've been so busy that it's the first time I've actually got the chance to do it properly.

On Christmas day, Andy and I went for a walk while it wasn't too cold outside. (it's freezing at the moment, but still no snow! How I miss Canada... hehe).

Anyway, here's what I wore:

The skirt is from H&M, t-shirt is from Primark, cardigan is from Simons (Canada), tights are from Top Shop and shoes are from Targets (America).

First of all, I want to wish a Merry Christmas to you all, happy Рождество to Natalia and a special happy Hanukkah to Karina and Lior.

Yesterday, for work, we decided to wear "Christmassy" clothes... to make it a bit nicer since nobody really wanted to be at work on the 23rd of December. I was still quite ill with a bad cold but fortunately I'm much better today. Therefore, I really enjoyed my day off work! Now, it's off until the 29th! It'll pass by very quickly so I'll do my best to enjoy every moment of it.

Anyway, here are some pictures of what I wore taken in the evening, when I got back from work.

I wore my new So Rouge lipstick by Bourjois. I've been looking for a red lipstick for quite a while but due to me being so white, it's quite hard... so when I saw that one, I wasn't bothered about the price and got it right away! It actually looks a bit more red on the picture than what it really is. It's more like a strawberry red, which suits girls with fair skin and light hair.

Sweet home Canada

By C.Elizabeth

As I wrote in a previous post, here are some pictures taken while I was back home in Canada.

I really had a great time there with Andy. It was his first time over so it was nice to show him more about where I'm from. I miss home badly all the time so I just can't wait to go back again and to eventually move back there with him. He absolutely fell in love with the place as well... but who wouldn't?

Winter thoughts :)

By Natalia

Hey hey :)

Back here...finally!! After so many days (or months?), at least after my trip to UK ;)) that's what i know for sure :)
By the way I am really happy that after many many many (actually 4, hehe) years me and Kate finally met! :) we've been planning that for so long and this happened! :)
Sis, you're the best :))
One of the presents she gave me was a very beautiful necklace, which is right on the pics :) i really like the colour!!!!! and another necklace on the left is my parents' present from their trip to Egypt in november 2009 :) You can see letter "H", which is actually "N" in russian ;) - the first letter of my name :)

A grey sweater was bought in Gloria Jeans shop in a big shopping center! i really like it :) have recently realised that now i really like grey colour,which i couldn't stand before! ))

i have also made some pics not far from my house, on y way to Uni, just to show how my city looks like now, before Christmassss!!

Noël c'est l'amour...

By C.Elizabeth

I feel very "Christmassy" tonight so I thought I'd post something to share my feelings. After all, that's what a blog is for! Seeing the presents under our Christmas tree and the stockings, Christmas movies on TV, Christmas music... but let's not talk about the massive queues there is in shops!!

We went to the Manchester Christmas Market yesterday and despite the rain, we had a lovely time. I love the atmosphere there is around Christmas time. I liked all the little wood cabins and the smell of freshly cooked food. I, of course, enjoyed a cup of mulled wine, which was delicious. Especially in this cold and dull weather!

Though, having it without the snow I'm used to, is not quite the same thing. I like white Christmas... where despite the darkness, the nights are still so clear due to the reflection of the colorful lights on the snow. It's such a nice and cheerful sight! Hopefully, I'll probably be home next year.

Back from home

By C. Elizabeth

This blog has been very quiet lately. I’ve been very busy, that’s the least I can say. Wedding planning, work, trip back home to Canada… and meeting my blog companion Natalia! Yes, we finally met after all these years and it was very nice. Hopefully, from now on I’ll be able to update the blog more often and same for Nat.

The trip to Canada has been fantastic in every way. It was so nice to be back home! Going to America and all. That’s really where I’m from, who I am, so it was a fantastic feeling to be there.

Of course, between sightseeing with Andy, there’s been quite a lot of shopping going on. I also brought back lots of clothes that I had to leave behind when I moved to the UK. I think my favourite item is the pair of shoes that I bought while being in the United States. They’re mustard yellow and I simply couldn’t resist them. I’m annoyed a bit at the fact that I can’t really wear them at the moment due to the bloody rain but I’m hopeful I’ll be able soon!

I’ve also bought quite a few tops (warm) and a dress. I didn’t go crazy with buying stuff though since I knew I had limited space in my luggage!

On top of that, I bought a lovely skirt from H&M on Saturday as well as more tights (I never have enough) and some polka dots knee-length socks. I’ve been looking at this skirt for quite a while now and I finally got it. Couldn’t be happier!

The problem I have now is that I haven’t got enough room to put all my clothes in. I will have to swap wardrobe with Andy because he’s got more space on the top of it than I do. I also will have to put clothes in the spare bedroom’s wardrobes. Haha

Anyway, here are some pictures of what I bought. In a future post, I’ll put some amazing landscapes pictures.

My hen party

By C.Elizabeth

I haven't written anything around here in quite a while! I've been very busy at work and sorting everything out for the wedding and our trip...
Yesterday, my friends organized a lovely hen party for me. I really enjoyed it and so did everybody. It was very nice to spend the night out with them. We first went to a wine bar, then to an Italian restaurant and finally to a pub which has a dance floor. As I said before, we all had lots of fun!

For the occasion, I decided to wear my high-waisted skirt from H&M, my mustard yellow top also from H&M, my tights from M&S and my shoes from Dolcis.

My new old bag :)

By Natalia

Looking for a violet bag was my #1 idea for a loooong long time. and yes, i found it. Well, not in the shop, but in my grandmother's closet :P This bag was a present to my granny, made by my grandfather many many years ago. She has never used it actually, maybe once to go to a theatre... and now presented it to me, since she knows how much violet-addicted i am!
I am going to wear it with a black dress tomorrow on my friends marriage :)
will post the pics as soon as i can, but maybe only after my trip to UK :))
well, here it goes!

Yesterday and photography

By C.Elizabeth

Yesterday, we went out for a walk since it was a lovely October day. This probably was the last day for a while that I could go out without wearing a jacket of some sort, so I made the most out of it!

The top is from Primark, the skirt is from American Eagle Outfitters, tights from M&S and shoes from a shop in Canada.

On the way back, we walked next to Atherton cemetery and I took some pictures... I simply loved the way it looked from behind the trees.

H&M + me = shopping addicted B-)

By Natalia

What a nice day today. My dad's brithday today, my parents' friends have alredy come, and they all are sitting in our dining room talking and laughing :) so nice. i like it so much when my parents are like this, so funny and talkative!
And i have some time free to write on our blog :)
Yesterday we went to Finland, Lappeenranta with my friend Karina and her friend Yuliya! A short shop-tour was really good, though we didn't have much time there and the weather was really terrible!
The center of the city is a small shopping world there :) Big markets, numerous shops...clothes everywhere! yay! we spent most of the time in H&M, which is a really huge store there! sooo many nice things! i've finally bought a coat which i have always wanted to have. It's rather classic, black, but i like it, as it can be worn with almost everything! i need to buy some bright scarf i think, will do it this week! ;)
Today for my daddy's birthday i am wearing a grey dress (don't know how to call it with a butterfly print on it and black short trousers!
