Over the last eight months, life has been tough. I have been juggling a degree in Psychology, a part time job, my own yoga business and bringing up my three children single handed. Money has been tight and we decided to throw a puppy into the mix….oh my days. So….as my life was busy and stressful enough, I really did not need what was to happen next. My eldest child, a 15 year old boy, who, when everyone who meets him says he is sure going to be a heart breaker (I think he already is-as the gaggle of girls follow him around and he responds with his ‘can’t be arsed’ attitude) was run over by an elderly gentleman, and he suffered serious injuries. Two broken femurs to be exact. i found out by his friend calling me on my mobile, luckily…just as i had arrived home. What normally would take the likes of Linford Christie a good 5 minute sprint to where the accident had happened, it took me literally 3! There I was running like I had never done before down the road, dressed in a short red dress, and drivers beeping me as I ran past! For goodness sake….do you not know that my son has just been run over…that was my thoughts…in between ‘please god, please let him be ok, just let him be awake.’ Of course the drivers did not know that the lad laid in the middle of the road further down the street was my son. As I approached I saw a trainer further up the road from where everyone was crowding round. My heart jumped to my mouth and everything began to spin. ‘Please let him be alive….please just be awake..’ I kept repeating over and over in my mind. I approached his friend who was inconsolable. Luckily, my son was conscious…just. The ambulance seemed to take forever and my son was drifting in and out, trying to tell me he was going to sleep. I did all I could to keep him awake. I was not going to lose him no way. Although this was a stroke of bad luck (and we have had more since-but that’s another story) it was also a stroke of good luck…because he survived and eight months down the line he is almost back to normal….barr the metal rods in his legs…but he is getting there. HE IS ALIVE and that is all that matters. I came across this bracelet recently and it reminded me of what we as a family have been through these last 8 months…a serious accident, issues with the children’s father which has brought a lot of stress, anxiety problems, money problems, and finally only last week an accident at school involving once again my teenage boy who has now suffered a broken arm as a result! I can honestly say I have not had such a bad run of luck in such a short space of time. So when I saw the name of this bracelet….That’s a wrap-Get Lucky I thought, this is an omen, I have been brought to this for a reason.
THAT’S A WRAP…..that’s it….that is the end of this run of bad luck. GET LUCKY….With Pleasure! Buy the bracelet here at a modest cost of £3.50 can you afford not to…? 🙂 The bracelet is from a range of hand made jewellery by Kimberley Wilson, an entrepreneur who has been making jewellery as a hobby for a few years now, but has recently decided to make it her business, and we really do wish her all the luck, as the jewellery is something we personally really love. It has a contemporary boho chic kind of feel, something really wearable, and also something wish is just as great as a gift. Read other reviews of Kimberley’s Jewellery

I recently bought a royal blue dress from Closet and I have to say I absolutely love it. For the sheer reason that the ‘cut’ of the dress is amazing and so, so flattering. For some unknown reason I managed to fit into a size 6. The material does have some give, so I am guessing it is just very forgiving :). You cannot tell from the picture here but the material has a ‘waffle’ effect to the material and also is fleece lined so perfect for these horrid winter nights out. I wore this on New Years Eve and also a few times since (but with tights instead of over the knees!) I would not normally wear over the knees to be honest, but NYE was an exception as we were going to a private ‘party’ where we were raving all night and anything you want to wear goes without you being judged by the masses 😉 (I am 33 after all).
I loved this dress so much I have been trying to track down another one in another colour but to no avail ;-( Closet if you are listening…..customer right here, please help me out (red preferably….i have the pennies just no trace of a dress).
If you are lucky enough to come across one of these skater style dresses at the very least try it on, I guarantee you it will make you feel amazing. The best thing is, they can be dressed up or down, making them very versatile and ensuring you get your monies worth! Well done Closet!!! Average cost of a dress is around £50 so affordable for the majority, I am sure you will agree! I am definitely a convert.
Some of the other stockists (if you would rather try before you buy):
I am not likely to be getting married any time soon, bearing in mind I am not even in a committed relationship. However, when I do get married this time I will be wearing a dress that I actually want to wear. So it got me thinking about what I would wear and I decided to have a look and see what was around. This is what I decided on:
This is totally my style and if I had to have one made for myself I would have described something very similar to this. Luckily I have a similar figure and hair so I should just get away with it!
I have to admit my style icon is Kate Moss and I came across her wedding photographs whilst perusing the thousands of images. This picture really made me think I would love to have a long veil for the ceremony.
I also love how all the bridal party are dressing in white. It really looks amazing and so different from the usual weddings where you are normally told not to wear white clothing so as to not upstage the bride.
I recently attended a wedding where the bride and groom asked all the guests to wear red and ivory. The wedding pictures looked amazing so I reckon I would love to go down the same theme and ask the guests to wear a certain colour to tie in with the overall colour theme, that way you could have the decorations as simple and minimum.
