MIni New Yorker...its snowed and I have discovered a onsie....

So it snowed.....and I discovered a Onsie. I think it's a great idea and you can get one from primark.....especially in this weather!! Last time it snowed I got locked out of my house last year and was bursting for the loo, my car nearly got hit because the cars were slipping all over the road but mine was saved because a neighbour wedged her self between her car and mine so they wouldn't the end I had to used my neighbours toilet which I just ran up stair and shouted down "don't mind me" I then came back down and introduced my self properly which I was then offered pizza and a cup of tea and we had a good giggle about the whole incident. Now every Wednesday we have a cup of tea and a bit of a gossip with my neighbour....!! I have been trying to keep my style from being ruined by wearing about 70 layers....but I am just sooo cold....!!! I think I was wearing two long cardigans the other day...and that was in the office....!!!

Now as I was browsing the Internet and I found a dress which I recognised straight away from Confessions of a Shopaholic. It was the black and cream dress where she was mistaken for as a waitress- don't worry this won't happen if you buy this dress. Even so it is a great dress and if you want to make a subtle statement then this is the dress for you...!!

Now has some great stuff for the party season....especially some sequined dresses...I have been looking for more sequin dresses for ages...and there's lots, a few are lovely black and gold ones...think they were about £20 as well so a real bargain . I also seen on the, some great leggings they have...some lovely silver sequin ones if you are gonna be wearing a long top for your Xmas party and you need to jazz it up a bit then this is a good option or they have some some gorgeous black sexy satin leggings for that even sexier look. You can wear them with any top...and it will still be foxy...I'm gonna get a pair-only £10!!! Foxy Mini New Yorker is gonna be a gooooood look!! Now I would buy some cheeky peeptoe lace court shoes in a choice of silver, pink and gold.....that's gonna cause a dilemma £25 a pop probably not an option for me to buy all three but I think I would buy the silver so they can be put with more outfits- but I'm very tempted to buy them all any! Now we are expecting more snow so it would be silly not to make sure we are looking as gorgeous in the adverse weather conditions....faux fur is a must this year....I have gorgeous black coat which just is sooooo warm....I have also had a browse at I have a silver glittery pair (which are still in the isle of wight after leaving them there after going to the festival). There are is a cute pair of Alexa Harlequin print wellington which are only £15 also very cute. I think it would be sensible to get some wellies as I am not going to be running around in stilettos like last if you have to wear wellies you may as well be stylish in them...yes?

I do have one question to all you ladies out there...Jumpsuits-yay or nay? I saw Kate Moss in a jumpsuit recently not in person you understand but....she can get away with it, as I am only 5"3 and a bit and I don't have legs up to here so would it work...I am sceptical...! 

Any way now I have an even more to say as I am a whole sale assistant buyer for Chic Interior Solutions so girls not only will I give you great fashion advice and I can now let you know the best and most chic accessories for you home....I will be bringing you the product of the keep an eye out for my new suggestions and photos....coming soon....right I think I need to get my self another hot chocolate to keep me warm so you know it toodles xxxx

Mini New Yorker...her New ASOS Mouse ring (ok I gave in)....and drinking a good cup of coffee....

So as a busy fashionista I have had an after work event which was a Hugh success and I am looking forward to the one in my branch on Thursday....I loved mingling with everyone!! Got to do it all again....our office is going to be like a tin of sardines but very glamorous at that!! If we have loads of people in at once.... I think we may have to have a one in-one out policy.....!!! Forget about all the hip London clubs, its the place to be !!!Well I wouldn't say no if I got an invite for a VIP party....I would certainly be dressed to would be a bit embarrassing as a fashionista and fashion blogger if I was under dressed or in something awful...!!! I have seen the most amazing pink hat with a lovely bow from a collection at House of Fraser again I would wear that I think that would look great in the winter or summer...!! Oh and I did buy the little mouse ring as it was sooo cute and only £6 and it my nickname afterall.

Now I am quite fussy about my shoes and the styles I would wear...I am loving high stilettos which I totter around in... as I am only 5"3 and a bit, so any extra high means I can see the world from a different!! Or just be at a normal height. Any way this winter peep toe heels are in and so are lace... now new look have some great choices and I think I just mentally spent about £200 just on their shoes, not just that but they have 20% off too so why not!!! The Satin Bow shoes in red only £18.39 they would look fantastic with a party dress or stick them on with some skinny jean with a ruffle chic perfect to just pop down to the chic bar or cocktails with your girlfriends on a lunch date....!! Lace heels either peep toe or normal are just so sexy. However girls this weekend it is meant to snow so I am not suggesting you go out in the snow in these shoes as you may freeze. It should be time to wrap up warm and go tobogganing instead. Now I am off to do a bit of a whizz round with the vacuum cleaner and start cooking dinner which is Chili and chocolate chili....mmmmm yum yum...!! Oh no I just turned to the movie channel on sky...eek confessions of a shopaholic is on.....this always makes me feel bad. But I do love her green corset top and shoes in the dancing scene....! I do feel that the manikins do knock on the window from the stores when I walk's so hard isn't girls?

Right I am off now but I am looking forward to more Ugly Betty later so I will tweeting no doubt sooo toodles xx

Mini New Yorker...X Factor and Twiggy lookalike.....

So I watched the X Factor tonight and I thought that Katie was a great surprise and instantly when I saw her new hair she reminded me of a photo I had seen...I have just remembered who it was. I was thinking she looked like a young Twiggy and Audrey Hepburn. I was amazed, she looked fantastic in that beautiful cream dress that she wore this evening....looked much more sophisticated and glamorous. I think I would definitely wear that, I am trying to find where I can buy one from it's a good dress as a basic which you dress up or down. Now when I had my hair cut as short as Katie has had done I some how looked like a!! It was to the point the American Customs Officer checking my passport asked me why I had cut my my passport was me with long hair. I have got to say I don't think I have ever had it cut that short since and would be unlikely to at the risk of being mistaken for a boy again!!! I suppose when I was 17 I was skinny and not really the curvy chica I am now...!! I think Katie suits that hair cut but ladies when you are choosing hair cuts make sure you look at the hair cut and the shape of the persons face as it may not suit you....!! I don't want you to be having that awkward chat with a security/customs officer about bad hair do's!!

I forgot to mention that I have fallen in love with Whittards white hot chocolate, it is amazing its like just a melted dream bar....!!! Yummy!! I think there's a few other flavours...rocky road hot chocolate sounds quite yummy too!! I think I am going to get down to Whittards......worth the £5's I think....!! My colleague mentioned she had brought some White hot chocolate and after her lunch she returned bearing gifts....!! We joked about one of her friends dropping of  2 tubs of Ben & Jerry's but she said she had a tub of Haagendaaz at home....I was ready with my plastic spoon...but she said it would have melted in our office as we had the heating cranked up...!!! It would have been a weird sight us eating ice cream in our office Santa's grotto. Today I wore my Grey shirt with my lovely black flower broach on the collar, some long peals necklace....which had been three strands but when I was at the Isle of Wight festival it broke as I got off the bus and went flying all over the grass....!! I wore a grey wrap around jumper and my long black cardigan as it was not warm this morning at silly o'clock !!!Lol!!

Although at least it wasn't icy today as the last few days I have had to crawl through from the passenger side as my drivers door lock was frozen. Which was a bit of a pain as they were the days I wore my dress suit and high heels. I am sure I was accidentally flashing my pants as I crawled across. I will learn my lesson, last winter I didn't have any wellies and I ended up wearing my knee high boots which didn't have much grip and there were a few time where I nearly went flying....!!

I am going to be careful this year as I do not want to end up in A&E like I did a few months back now where I had come of the cinema after watching the film and it was raining and I some how managed to slip on a drain and semi dislocate my shoulder and spend the rest of the Saturday night in A&E instead of getting our take away and watching the x factor, thank goodness for Sky +!! It was weird as I never step on drains as I always used think it was bad luck- kinda proved my own point.That will be the first and last time we would go to that town as it was probably a bad omen. I was how ever more worried that I had ruined my new dress and shoes and my bag which had landed in a puddle with my iPhone some where at the bottom.  Well my dress was fine and so was my iPhone but my shoulder had to be put in a sling and I was meant to be doing a staff bowling night a week after....not good!! I was given very strong painkillers as it was agony. The police officers that looked after me that called the paramedics were very nice. I did feel a bit stupid being x-police and me in floods of tears but I was in a lot of pain. But any way I think I am off to bed now as I am tired. so night night all and toooodleesss xxx

Mini New Yorker and her productive day at the office....turning it into santa's grotto

So a very productive day in the office....We managed to transform the office with a box of tinsel, into Santa's grotto....!! There's quite a bit of competition between the two offices....!! We used purple and gold tinsel, I think all we are missing now is a snow machine and Rudolph. I haven't started to decorate my house yet...I will do when I feel up to it....I am a red and gold fan for the Christmas it a lovely warm cosy feeling. I used to love to help my parents decorate the Christmas tree...!! Mini New Yorker and my family have a few traditions at Christmas. We would all decorate the Christmas tree.... then on Christmas eve (which I never went out with my friends) because I was always busy wrapping my brother Christmas presents. It would normally end up with me trying to show him how to wrap the presents....!!! We also make mince pies on Christmas eve and get ready for the big family dinner we have every year. Last year we were at my uncles house and me, my Mum and Uncle decided it would be good to start a disco in his kitchen...some very embarrassing dancing which I believe was caught on a video which will be brought out to a good embarrassing moment. We also had tasks to complete and I got iron one of my uncles shirts...the most creased shirt in the world....I think there were various jokes about house wife!!

Any way off to bed now soooo toodles xxx

Mini New Yorker...window shopping at and her christmas wish list....

I love ASOS.....I was window shopping as I know this close to Christmas, I shouldn't buy any thing....I have just found the most amazing clutch which is a Paparazzi magazine Clutch for £45.00 I think that's a bargain there were are lots of different colour ways too....I am definitely going to buy one....!! Oh yes I also saw a Mouse Ring which was soooo cute and only £6 which is also a bargain.....And seeing as my nickname is mouse I really think it is appropriate to buy that....and it's so cute....!!

My list is getting longer by the day for what I want to buy from ASOS. I think for the party season you do need some skinny sparkly bangles and lots of them...mix them with chunky bracelets and some nice earrings either large stud's or some beautiful dankly earrings.....!!! Obviously accessories are important to have but I also think you need some colourful tight and shoes. So again I found some amazing gold glittery tights which I have been looking for, for ages. Now for my dress Ideas...there is a lovely shift dress which is electric blue.....only £16...adding that to the basket oh yes....Girls if you want to stand out at the office party be bold and go with something bright/or with frills but just make sure...its the dress that's going to turn heads.....they may turn their head so fast the will get whip-lash or like in the films everyone turns in slow motion and the wind machine kicks!!! Ok so I can't help with the dramatic effects but when you're in that dress you will make your own affects...!!! So girls get those show stopping dresses....! There is a dress for every budget if you have a small budget you can look in the clearance on ASOS so many dresses.

Now shoes....don't go for the black your wearing a blue dress, picks red/ pink.....just mix and match... colours and patterns...!! I am going to say this once Ugly Betty seems to be the current trend.....I had a look at some of the new trend off the catwalk of  London, New York and Paris fashion week and it seems to me that she's a trendsetter...all this mixing and matching definitely is the Ugly Betty style.

I can't wait for the sales......But for now I am going to get my beauty sleep so toooodles xx

Mini New Yorker and a long lie in reading her fabulous book on my day off....and relax..

So today is my day off...which I am very grateful for as Ugly Betty is on again later... But any way I woke up at and read my book for 2 hours in bed...I lost track of time!! Now I am up with cold feet, hence another reason to stay tucked up in bed for a bit longer....!!! I am not liking this weather its soooo bloody freezing and wearing about 20 layers is not the best fashion statement in the world. I do wonder how singers are able to stop their teeth chattering while they try to sing but instead freeze on a festival stage....even in our summers its not particularly warm. Not for me I don't think.

When I was in the police I hated the winter as I would be out in the cold, trying to retrieve stolen canoes that had been use as a toboggan when it snowed. And I would always loose a glove....and because I was so small I got given fluorescent water proof trousers.....I looked like a radio active banana I looked sooo stupid...and that was not un-noticed. There would just be a little yellow blur as I had to run some where for a job or the need to pee!!! When you try to run with a massive jacket, a tool belt, a stab vest and various other thing especially when you feet don't work because they are about to fall off from being so cold you normally end up tripping up or loosing your balance which just looks even funnier when you're a radio active banana. That uniform really did nothing for my styling.

Any way I am no longer a radio active banana- which is very good!!!So this Christmas I have asked "Santa" to bring me some ASOS vouchers so I can go mad in the sales....I haven't spent loads of money in one go in ages...I feel I need more sparkly clothes in my life....saw a lovely peacock broach- in primark perfect for more sparkle. I have fallen in love with a beautiful dress which is teal and its sequins and its so pretty from french connection but its £165 so not in this months budget or many months after that I feel....!!! I have my own sequin dress which is from ASOS I bought a few months back...I love it. I wore it out and I remember demonstrating to my friend while walking up some stairs to the bathroom of a bar that it sounded like a rattle snake when I moved and promptly started to shake my bum to demonstrate this. Unfortunately I had not been aware of the gentle men who had been behind us on the stairs who was now grinning from ear to ear...I was fare to embarrassed to turn around so I just dashed into the bathroom and burst out laughing into fits of giggles with girlfriends while we established who actually needed the loo, who was just re-doing their lip gloss and who had come for the gossip. The dress certainly made the night interesting as I had to be careful how I sat down to as the sequins all had to be facing down otherwise I would bend them. It did take several attempt to master the skill which I got it down to a T though.

Any way my friend is popping over for a pot of tea at 2 and I am still in my Pj's and not at all presentable in my current state. So must dash so TOOOOODLES xxx

Mini New Yorker, her prince charming and a royal wedding....

So I have my Prince Charming, but I know there are some devastated ladies out there who had their dreams crushed of being P. Will's wife. Now for those who will be invited to the Royal wedding (which I won't be unfortunately) you will need something to wear... now weddings normally are fairly easy to buy for but like I say this is a whole different ball game. You can't just buy from the high street and it's got to be out that's one dilemma but the other is obviously what to buy the happy couple.....? I think you could get the some art work-ie. from me he he!! I think some thing individual or unusual!!  Any way I will have some more thoughts on what the lucky people, who will be attending the wedding can give..... until then Toodles xx

What does Mini New Yorker and the British Cosmo Editor Louise Court have in common?

What Does Mini New Yorker and the British Cosmo Editor Louise Court have in common?

Answer: Apart from the obvious interest of fashion.....Yes thats right we both Love our Football, Louise Court's are Palace and her husband is a Chelsea supporter, mine are Reading and Liverpool and my boyfriend are Reading and Chelsea. Plenty of banter when the footy is on..which normally results in me boo-ing when Chelsea are playing just to wind up my boyfriend hehe-his response is "what a cheeky Mouse" (my nickname)!!

I do remember some friendly banter between me and my boyfriend when we were watching in one our local pub it was Liverpool v Chelsea-unfortunately Chelsea won 3-1- they basically wiped the floor with us. I remember my friend laughing at us because we were cheering different and my brother were supporting Liverpool but I think the the rest of the pub wanted Chelsea to win including my friend who I believe just went the majority!!

Any way I thought that was an interesting fact of the got to dash so TOOOOODLES xxx

Mini New Yorker has dyed my hair a darker Autumn brown...

Got up pretty late this morning, as I was reading my book-I Heart Hollywood (which is actually on my iphone) I thought I may do some painting but yet again I haven't got round to it today. Then we went food shopping and had tiny little tiny sandwiches-cute

Well after umming and arrrrring I have dyed my hair a bit darker perfect for the autumn/winter. I think the box said cappucinno so I am now a blend of coffee....!!!  I have dyed my hair previously, I think the best time I dyed it would have been when I went was great it was so dark with a hint of plum....

Me now after I dyed my hair today                           Me with plum hair a couple of years ago.
     (in my sexy spotty pj's)                                                          (me in a spotty shirt)

Right so dinner is nearly ready, we are having steaks which will be nice because we haven't had one for ages. So yum yum.....!!! Oh and a piping hot Apple crumble-oh my mum's apple crumble with our apples from our fruit trees in our garden are the best and we some time had hand picked berries from up on the lane too yum yum!!

Oh I almost forgot...I was minding my own business checking my Facebook page when a guy who I knew from school, popped up and said " I still think you're lovely" I obviously got a bit confused and thought he may have written on the wrong screen...!! I asked if he had got the right person as I thought I maybe had got me confused with some one else....!!! No he replied with he definitely meant me....!!! Then he said it was a shame I wasn't single...I was shocked....!! This is the second time this happened in so many months...why do guys think its ok to hit on women who are in relationships....!!! First a turkish guy while my boyfriend and I were on holiday and now this.....No idea why this keep (but not my lovely boyfriend)!!! Any way I am off  now as the X Factor is on so toodles xx

Mini New Yorker Saturday= work, football, curry and X Factor..... in that!!

We got to the football just as the whistle went...we ran to get there.....well I did as I have very short legs and I was trying to keep with my boyfriend who is 6ft 2 with long legs!!.I sat down in my seat and said I think I need to go to the gym....!!! I was wear 3 tops and a coat and tights under my skinny jeans....I was sooo warm though....I have learnt from my previous mistakes of going to a football match and coming back with icicles hanging off the end of my nose and my feet like ice blocks....!!! I did loose my voice a bit as I do sing loudly when I am at a game....I am no Rebecca though from the X factor. The game was Brilliant....3-1 down and we thought we were out of the game we get three great goals and it could have been a lot more had we not hit the wood work or been inches wide...!!

<-Here's what I wore at the game....My hat I added my flower broach to it to give it a bit more glamour with my pink scarf and gloves....and you can't see but I had spotty socks poking over my boots-great way to wear bright/patterned long them off....make a statement...!!!

We got back and had a lovely curry at cinammon in harpenden which my lovely boyfriend paid for....I had honey and mango chicken, it was soooo yummy but I was stuffed straight away I couldn't finish it! I think I am going to try and make it my self....!!

Then when we got home, we watched the Xfactor which we had recorded. I loved Aidan's shiny jacket....I would wear that....I am going to try and find one!! I also liked Katie's film premier and gold are soooo in this make sure you get your's for all the parties you will go to and start thinking about new years eve as you will need to get all glamorous for that too....!!

Mini New Yorker is off to a Football match...Yes I know the off side rule and yes I will be wearing a pink coat....

As a Women knowing the off side rule and getting it first time is a rare thing. I thought I would try and pass my wisdom on to my colleague, who only went to her first Football match the other day (and got rained on so she came out looking like a drowned rat) lol!! To demonstrate the "off side" rule to her I used my iPhone as mid fielder my cup of tea as the striker, a glass of water as the defender, a candle holder as a goal keeper and a guillotine as the goal...and a mini highlighter as a ball.....I showed her this which had us laughing as she said she would go home and show her boyfriend what she learnt at work today.....!!! Any way "Come on HOOPS!"

Mini New Yorker and fighting zombies in her dreams...

I just remembered my dream from last night...I was in a forest on some sort of camping trip/trek...I was wandering around when a white flog/mist roled across the forest and then the other people turned it to zombie....I am actually petrified of zombies....!!! So I ran to the bus which kinda looked like one of the grey hound buses in America!!! Any way the door on the bus was just about to shut and drive off when I jumped on shouting "wait for me" I got on the bus and we reverse out of the forest....but we were chased by zombies...I thought I had left my boyfriend behind because I couldn't find him but he was at the back of the bus trying to bash zombie off the rugs which were hanging out of the back window that they were climbing up and naturally thats were rugs would be....?? Any way I was fighting zombies at the front while we were driving a long...I think I may have punched one in the face...!! Eventually the mist roled back over and turned everyone back to normal....very odd dream but I am petrified of zombies....!!! Any way thank goodness it was only a dream....toodles xx

Mini New Yorker's Car decides it doesn't want to start just as I'm leaving work....

Just as it starts to rain as well, my car decided it didn't want to start and as I normally do when things like this happens I panic...! My first thought was "Oh great....the day I choose to where stilettos to work...." lol! Fashion on the brain even in a crisis!!! It's ok now though got home safely!!! Thank goodness as really didn't fancy standing in the rain!!! As I think after work tomorrow I will be going to watch Football, Reading Royals and it's more than likely going to rain!!! So actually I will need to make sure I am wrapped all warm!! Gloves, hat and scarf and a because I'm a girl it's going to pink hat, pink coat and pink gloves...beacause I have already lost my purple gloves.....oh!!! Now what shoes to wear...I think I will wear my skiny jeans and boots with my nice spotty/stripy woolly socks or maybe one of I never can find them as a pair at the same time...!!! lol!!! any way must dash Toodles xxx

Mini New Yorker...Chocolate and fashion...dresses you can eat...just not in front of the Designers!!!

Yes that's right girls while I was browsing the net I saw something that got me curious. I saw chocolate and fashion in the title and thought mmmmm!! I read on and believe it or not there is a Choclate Fashion show....Yes Dresses you can actually eat...well maybe not in front of the designers.... they may get a bit cross if they see you munching on there master piece. Thinking about it, that's got to be hard A) not to get covered in chocolate and B) not just start munching on your own dress....if you didn't have lunch....!!!

Two things women love is chocolate and fashion so it works for me....just not sure its that practical to go to the pub in.....!!! If you ask me its genius....

Mini New Yorker and launching a Burrito .....

Hey it's been an interesting week for me and my blog as it's now one week old! Yay! And again Ugly Betty was on! Not sure what I'm going to do when it finishes though Sniff Sniff! Loads about blogging on Ugly Betty this week, which is why I started in the first place-it gave me inspiration! She got an award, which I think there was some discrepancy about what the L stood for-BLOB. BLOB stands for Black and Latina Organization of Bloggers. Best bit was the Burritos being thrown at Daniel! Wouldn't you love to be able to just launch a Burrito at someone! Lol! There will be, no doubt be a few people who are going to take it up as a sport, I am sure! Lol! I actually thought the comment of the B.H. (Betty Head-fan of Betty's blog) was funny that, because they were all Latina it was politically correct for them to throw the Burrito....very amusing.

Any way in Mini New Yorkers week no Burritos have been thrown-unfortunately as it did look rather fun. I decided today as the weather was miserable and it was freezing cold I would brighten the office up with me in my bright pink coat and pink 6 inched stilettos-which I love and should have bought more in other colours....!!!

Even If you have to wear a suit to work, like I do you can still wear bright accessories and shoes to make the out fit more interesting/glamorous. The most instant way to add glamour is to get some funky bright or sparkly bracelets and some cute studs-always pick something that's going to give that little glitz for the office. I love the danglely earring's, mostly silver or black. I can't wear gold earring's unfortunately as they doesn't really suit but I do try different styles of jewelry-as you all should don't be scared to try something new. And don't be scared to mix and match jewelry and throw a couple of necklaces on together. A wise women told me regarding jewelry and accessories less is always more...I think more is more. A wise women also said to me to choose what you are going to wear the night before so you don't have to rummage around looking for those specific tights or your Va Va Voom top. But if you really want to go the whole way then get up an hour earlier to style you hair to look even more glamorous. Unfortunately for me I am not a morning person and getting any earlier than I have to is out of the! But thankfully as my hair is naturally poker straight I don't need to do too much to it!! I wish I could start at 10.00am every day and then maximise my sleeping time and still have time to look glamorous with out getting up at ridiculous a clock.  I am thinking about getting my hair cut again as I liked my style but want something different. What about getting a stylish fringe done or more choppy layers? It's got to be something I can just drag a brush through in the morning and look fabulous for work!! Any ideas let me know....well I am off for now so Toodles x

Mini New Yorker's Creative side

So I have had a quick snooze and had a nice soaky bath, now am I trying to do some more painting. Any ideas? What should I paint? Well I am going to give it thought, but have a look and see what else I painted...
<-this is my painting of Ankor Wat in Cambodia,
(my finish line for my charity trek)

Let me know what you think....? Toodles xx

Mini New Yorkers is feeling under the weather.....

Gosh I feel and look terrible when you're having a duvet day then you don't have to dress to impress-thank goodness! The best thing to do on a duvet day is have a hot honey and lemon drink, my mum swears by it....!! I have just boiled the kettle for mine. I hoping it will help as I should be back at work tomorrow...! I'm going to destress and look on the bright side. I think if I get a Wii for christmas from "Santa" I will defiantely be doing yoga every day on the Wii fit...! I know its hard to destress with the normal life issues but ladies you have to take some time out to pamper your self. You don't have to spend a lot to feel like you have had a spa treatment. Well I am off to have a little snooze and a long soaky bath. so for now toodles xx

Mini New Yorker's Christmas party season and the biggest question most womens lips is.....oh gosh what am I going to wear to that very important christmas office party

"The Little Black Dress"
"The Little Black Dress" is the solution to most fashion dilemma for a party. If its not first choice its certainly a good back up. But this year I feel it is all about the glamour and the sparkle so ladies get ready to dazzle. You can take a fairly plain black and team it with so very bright accessories to brighten the outfit up and stand out from the crowd...hey that's what the office parties are all about. That and singing very bad karaoke in front of your boss-a very Bridget Jones moment.So Ladies get ready for your days of pampering and Christmas shopping for that perfect outfit don't have to spend to much to get a great out fit and if you need a dress I have have one you can borrow...Ha ha!! Enjoy your Dazzling all deserve to look great.....and then its the whole thing again for New Year Eve.

Bonfire Night-Good job it's Raining

I suppose it is definately a good thing actually that mother nature is providing so much rain just incase there a few problems in london with most of the fire fighters on strike and all...what a night to take a strike on probably there busiest night of the year for them.....who's idea was that.....very stupid. I think its probably safer to stay in this weekend.....well just pop out for a quick drink then grab out take away and the settle back down to watch xfactor. I'm off to bed now so toodles x x

Remember, remember the 5th of November...gunpowder, treason and plot...

So its Bonfire night and with this amount of rain I think most will be put off going to any events as its really not a good look being drenched and looking like a drowned rat....!!! I am hoping that it will clear up as I will be out and about on Saturday evening in one of my locals and then I think its my turn to choose a take away...mmmmm!! Might get Thai or Chinese....ooooh nooo definitely Thia!! A nice green Thai curry with sticky coconut rice-that would good with prawn's making my mouth water just thinking about it...!!! So this weekend is going to be a quiet compared to the ones coming up. I believe that I will be going to see Reading at the Madaski stadium next weekend. Unfortunately football matches you can't look that glamorous...with out freezing...I have tried on many occasions to make the effort. Unfortunately it always seem to go to sub zero temperatures or be torrential rain when watching most games at this time of year. I think I remember having to blast the heaters in my car on my feet for about 10 Min's before I could feel them and drive home which I believe was last winter.

Any way, I didn't manage to paint a master piece last night but I'm going to give it ago tonight I think. Unless I get distracted by something good on the TV. Not sure whats on....!!

I hope it stops pouring too; I forgot my big umbrella. I will just have to blast the hot air in my car again...! I normally after being drenched looking like one of the small dogs when they get wet and look like they have no fur left and then when I get out of my car after being hot air blasted I then look like a fluff ball which has been dragged through a bush backwards quite a few times...!!

I'm not sure where and what my boyfriend and I will be going...if any if the is weather caries on... I will let you tips for a event where your standing out in the rain...Lots of  layers, big woolly jumper/cardigan and flat boots or some fabulous wellies to brighten up the outfit. You can but a nice bright woolly hat and a chunky scarf ideal for this time of years...looking glam in the middle of a muddy field in the rain...oh and take a little blanket to wrap round all part of the Bonfire Night Chic Mini  New Yorker style.

Must dash, Toodles xxx

Mini New Yorker's Christmas party season is approaching.....

I decided I would splash out for a Christmas out fit for all of £15.00-bargain, I went for the Mini New Yorker style. All glittery & gold and black. My boyfriend saw me and his response was "Ooooh Slinky Mouse" (my nickname, I'm small & cute-well that's what I'm saying!) So that's going to used for several events I am attending. As a Mini New Yorker I have a fairly busy schedule. All parties invites & work events and Christmas do's all to attend. That should be fun & then of course there's the family Christmas dinner. Looking back at the pictures I can also see how many clothes I got rid of. I would love to get it all back-one dress was Jade green dress it was lovely but stupidly got rid of it and now about 3 years on I wish I still had it. Such a pain. I think I would be very rich if I had kept all my clothes because I wouldn't have to buy new ones.... actually I still would buy more though. It is my only guilty pleasure as I don't drink or smoke so but I did feel soo guilty when I watched that film " confessions of a shopaholic" another style I like with all the bright colours !!! Oooh I have just bought some lovely purple fleece gloves for the our typical cold/rainy English winter. It's not as snowy as the winter in New York....!!!
well My boyfriend and I are just setting down to watch a film so I'm going to sign off now.... toodles xxx

Being an Honorary New Yorker....Mini New Yorker

So my first day as blogger.....ooooooh it's sooo exciting. I don't know where to begin! Oh I do, who watched Ugly Betty last night? Great wasn't it? It made me kind of fall in love with New York. I haven't been YET but it's on my just looks so Glamorous! Really I am honorary New Yorker from a small sleep village in the middle of England. I'm just itching to hail a big yellow cab. I'm the 'Real Life Ugly Betty', a bit QUIRKY and I certainly don't follow the usual trends, well I like to mix it up a bit.

I just love the chucking stuff together bit like my cooking style too Ha Ha! In fact I think my friend once said "you know, you make really ugly clothes look good.....not sure how you pull do it but you just manage to pull it off with your Kat Style." I was a bit hurt by the comment but I was told by several people it was a backwards compliment. I personally don't think I have that weirder fashion sense but I guess that as I love Ugly Betty's style (in some episodes) I probably have to agree with my friend. Anyway I'm ready to burst into the Big Apple. But unfortunately My big dreams to visit the Big Apple will have to wait, so I'll be a Mini New Yorker this side of the pond for the time being.
