Blogiversary no2 🎉

So Sunday (the 8th October) marked two years since I started my blog, TWO!! Where has that time gone?!? 
As most of you who have followed my blog from the beginning will know I started my blog to document our wedding planning, wahhhh it seems so long ago now!! (if your new, Hey! 👋🏼) 

I never thought I would be someone who wrote a blog, I thought it was something other people did, ‘cool’ people (whatever cool is these days)

My twin sister Sarah had her blog and she really enjoyed it, I was sceptical but I gave it a go and it turned out to be a hobby I would come to really enjoy. I love that I can look back at moments in my life, recipes I’ve made, shopping sprees I’ve been on and just the things that I’ve been loving over the years, many of which I might have forgotten if it wasnt for them being documented in my own little space.

I’m especially pleased that I documented our wedding planning, as anyone who has got married will know, it all goes very quickly so I will always have that to look back on and remind me of that v.stressful, but fun process, the decisions we made that got us to that special day and just little things that I may not remember forever but will make me smile when I read them back.

A blog has such potential, so if your thinking of doing it, do! Just go for it. Don’t be afraid of what others will think of your writing, it’s yours to make of it what you wish and you’ll never please everyone (Why would you want to anyway, some people are d**ks) + It’s good fun 👍🏻 

Here’s to many more years here at Roseanne’s s Blog!

Fun at the 02! 

So, at the weekend, (Sat 1st July) yes the 1st of July, the first day of the SEVENTH MONTH of the year! Seriously 2017, slooooww dowwn. Basically we went to the 02 for  the Star Wars: identities exhibition as my husband Tim loves Star wars and its his birthday next week. 

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. As someone who is only now watching the Star Wars films properly I found it really interesting and a fun experience.

There were over 100 pieces that were used in the actual Star Wars films, costumes, droids, models, to look at as well as an accompanying audio guide. 

You also got given a wristband at the start and you build your own Star Wars character and shape their identity using it. You make choices about their species, home planet, job, personality etc and this creates your character for you. 

Here is Tim’s:

Here is mine:

This was so much fun and I remembered alot more about the film’s than I though I would. 

Tim had a great time which is the most important thing ♡

After we had been to the exhibit we headed to get some food (also in the 02) there is such a good selection of restaurants in there to choose from and because we had been to the exhibit we got 25% off our food bill, winner!

We went to Zizzis and had a delicious Italian feast.

For starters Tim had this A-maz-ING bruschetta with creamy mozzarella, tomatoes & basil pesto 👌

I had one of my favourite starters, calamari (V.fitting after my character choice haha)

Tim had a classic Bolognese for his main, which was so rich and delicious. (Yup, I stole a sneaky taste, I’m not the only one who does that am I? I mean what’s mine is yours right! 😂)

I had a delicious mushroom tortelloni dish in a creamy sauce.

We shared their new tomato, basil & mozzerella bread 👌

We love having days out for a birthday, I love receiving gifts people have chosen for me but there’s something lovely about having experiences and making memories too.

Definatly worth a look for all you Star Wars fans 👍

Until next time,

Primark haul 

As promised here’s another Primark haul! Me and my sister went to the Primark on Oxford Street when we were in London recently and although we only had 15 minutes max we managed to grab an impressive amount between us!! 

Im not sure it’s necessarily something to be proud of but I got some nice bits so I’m happy none the less haha #selfconfessedprimarkaddict

So let’s have a look at what I picked up!

Swimsuit £4

I love this swimsuit, it’s a lovely mint green colour with cute little pink flamingos all over it, adorable. I don’t need a new swimsuit but I am loving the tropical inspired prints of this season and for £4 you can’t go wrong!!

Plain black pumps £4

Although not overly exciting, I picked up two pairs of these plain black pumps for work. They are super comfy and again only £4 each.

Black Van style shoes £6

I was so tempted to ask for a pair of Vans for my birthday but I changed my mind at the last minute (hella expensive!!) and I’m glad I did! 

I saw these in Primark literally the next day for £6 and you cannot tell the difference, in fact other than the enormous price difference the only thing they don’t have is a red vans tag on them. 

Black pumps with gold detail £8

 These were also bought for work and are a bit prettier than the others, however the size 6 in these doesn’t fit me even though the other black pumps are a 6, sadface.     So I will be having to return these, it’s such a shame as I love the gold detailing and tassels.

Dusky pink slip on mules £8
How pretty are these mules?! 🏵😍 my sister was on the hunt for these in the Oxford street Primark and when I saw them I had to grab a pair too!! They are a faux velvet material with a pretty pink bow on the front. They are super comfy as they are slip one and the colour is one of my favourites, plus only £8!! 

Embroidered shirt £12

I am IN LOVE with this shirt. It’s beautiful. I love the trend of embroidery for casual clothes or on something more dressy so I instantly fell in love with this shirt when I saw it, Spring/Summer perfect 👌 It’s a longer shirt which I like and the slight splits up either side make it really flattering with skinny black trousers for work or skinny jeans for a more causal look.

Les rose’ t shirt £6

This is a lovely causal tee with pretty rose gold/copper writing on the front, love it! The material is soooo soft too.

Dip dye t shirt £5 

Coral is such a pretty summer colour so this really stood out to me when I was looking in the t shirt section. It’s an ombre effect from the coral to white and is slightly longer than a usual tee. I can’t wait to pair this with skinny jeans, 3/4 lengths or maybe even shorts (dare to dream!!) 

Stripey t shirt with embroidered rose £6

Yep, your seeing right! Another stripey tee 🙈 But a girl can never have too many (Am I right!!) This one is a bit longer than a cropped tee but it is still quite short, it would work as a cropped top or if you’re like me and couldn’t think of anything worse grab those high waisted jeans/shorts/trousers and rock it with those instead.  I love the embroidered rose on it too 🥀

Polka dot Sheer fashion socks £2

Tanya Burr recently wore some Vans with little socks like these and I loved the look so I grabbed these two pairs for £2. These have got cute polka dots on them.

Fishnet tights £3

These may seem an odd purchase but allow me to explain. As I said with my previous picture I took inspiration from a look Tanya Burr recently wore, but I couldn’t find the fishnet fashion socks in any of the Primarks I went in (even Oxford street!!) So, the next best thing was the tights because I figured under ripped jeans these would still be pretty cool as you can see the tights through the rips too.

Not everyones cup of tea i know but I  really liked this look.

So, those were my purchases! I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what bits you’ve picked up in good old Primark recently too 👍

Until next time, 

Roseanne 🙂
