Obligatory snow post

Edd and I braved the snow today and headed into town. My bargain M&S boots kept me surprisingly steady and I didn't slip once!

These photos are taken in the park I live next to! This one is taken from the balcony.

Behind me, you can see some building work going on, they're building a load of new flats. I thought it would be fun to take a picture at least once a month in this same spot to see how the park, the building and my style changes throughout the year. Let's see how long that one lasts!

In town, we had lunch at Bodega and it was very nice indeed. A sneaky lunchtime cocktail made with grape brandy..!  four cheese buritto and sweet potato fries. YUM.

Also I went for a bra fitting at M&S which I was weirdly nervous about. The woman who measured me was REALLY short so I felt like a bit of a giant stood in my bra and tights. I now know my bra size (naturally I was wearing the wrong size) and also the STYLE I should be wearing. Well I had no idea that one was better than the other, but apparently I should wear 'balcony' but can also wear 'plunge'. I bought myself a sports bra so now I have no excuse not to exercise...!

I hope the snow is not causing too much disruption for you all. I was lucky enough to have Friday off, but I'm a bit worried about getting to school on Monday!

I love your deliciously purple outfit, you look so warm in the snow! You're braver than I am, I'd never go to a proper bra fitting.

Nice purple beret and tights! Gutted I left my camera at my fiance's house- darn it, no snow scene shots for me!x

I love your winter outfit! You look very fashionable whilst still being warmly dressed. Your blue Topshop hat, lovely fringed white H&M scarf, dressy Dorothy Perkins coat and H&M tights look lovely, and you look lovely in them. Your four cheese burrito and sweet potato fries sound scrumptious. I've never gotten the nerve up for a bra fitting myself. Maybe some day. The snow recently (Long Island, NY, USA) was quite disruptive. I lost power for hours and was snowed in for days, but all's back to normal now except for large piles and drifts of melting snow here and there. I'm glad to hear you managed to be surefooted in the slippery weather. Too many people aren't careful enough. Always be on the lookout for ice. Love your blog.
