Outfit Post: The Birds




How is it already Monday again?


I seriously don't understand it. Another weekend seemed to pass by in the blink of an eye. Friday was spent drinking vodka and tonic (I'd never tried it before but I kind of love it), watching Britain's Next Top Model (Tiffany, please explain your accent) and playing Guitar Hero until I developed an unsightly claw hand. Saturday was spent dog walking, wii fit-ing and tidying. Oh and staying up until 3am for no good reason. Today I wandered around Manchester, took lots of lovely photographs, met my friend C for a drink and then went to watch Jurassic Park on the big outdoor screen in Spinningfields. I'd forgotten what a good film it is!


I chose this outfit for watching the film mainly for its layering capabilities. Also, I've had this dress for about two and a half years but had completely forgotten about it. I love it when that happens! It's a bit baggy on me now but I love it too much to let it go. I chucked my Topshop leather jacket over the top and I was good to go. Although it did get extremely chilly while we were watching the film and I ended up with a blanket over me too. It was a strong look.


What does the week ahead hold in store for you? I'll be mostly working, Slimming World-ing, Samaritan-ing, gig attending and birthday celebrating (my beautiful friend E's, not mine). I might try and sleep at some point too.


Dress & Cardigan - New Look
Leggings - M&S
Hat - H&M
Necklace - Lady Luck Rules OK
Scarf - Miss Selfridge
Shoes - Dorothy Perkins

How To Get Your Ex Lover Back & Avoid Breakup or Divorce.! A very big problem occurred in my Marriage seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited. TEMPLEOFLOVEANDPROSPERITY@GMAIL.COM. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there if you have any problem contact Dr Frank Ojo, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you.. Email him at: Templeofloveandprosperity@gmail.com . My name is Amanda Bryan, me & my family live in Toronto, Canada. Thanks for reading .
