Outfit Post: Wet Look


Another Friday, another dress down day. Hurrah!

I'm sure the title of this post will attract hits from people looking for naughty things, so apologies if you are one of those people. You filthmonger you. I've embraced wet look leggings recently, and hopefully I've managed to avoid the overstuffed sausage look. I actually bought these a couple of years ago but, seeing as my legs were about twice the size that they are now, they never fitted. One of the best things about losing weight is being able to wear things that have never fitted. It's like having a whole new wardrobe!


What is life without a little bit o' bling?! I don't usually wear a lot of jewellery to work, as I get irritated by bracelets hitting the desk and rings getting in my way while I'm trying to type (I am a typing machine, did you know that? 75 words per minute. Yes sir). I thought I'd make an exception for this glorious little number from Forever 21 though. A New York purchase. Sigh.


My sincerest apologies for the cleavage-tastic photograph below. What can I say, the girls wanted to be in the picture. Also, please ignore my stroppy pout, I'm actually in a fabulous mood!


Plans for this weekend include an overnight duty at the charity tonight (11pm till 5am, lord), lots of sleep, watching The Social Network (strangely excited about it!) and lots and lots of baking. On the menu are chocolate peanut butter cookies, parkin and treacle toffee. Yum.

Any plans, my loves? Have any of you seen The Social Network yet? Give me your thoughts, hopes, dreams and desires for the weekend ahead!

You rock this outfit! I love the leggings; you totally pull them off, which not everyone can do! You're also super gorgeous.

I made these a few weeks ago for my housemates - I'm told they're good but not liking peanuts I'm not sure; http://inthelittleredhouse.blogspot.com/2010/02/run-eat-and-then-repeat.html
and loving the outfit. X

Got some bits from Forever 21 when I was in New York, I'm guessing it's like their version of New Look or something. But I really liked that shop. Not sure for boys, but for girls...spot on for bits and bobs.

Alas, having royally mocked wet look leggings in a photo on my own blog a couple of years back (photo now removed actually, because the google searches leading to that page started to unsettle me slightly; you have that joy to come), I still feel it would be wrong of me to condone the use of them now. They make me nervous in a bad way. Brrr.

Nhiều chị em thắc mắc mang thai ăn nghệ có được không vì nghệ có tính nóng có thể ảnh hưởng tới thai nhi, bà bầu nên tiêm phòng khi nào là điều cần thiết nhất trong thời gian mang thai của người mẹ, bà bầu bị sôi bụng có sao không vì có nhiều lý do và nó có thể ảnh hưởng đến thai nhi, bà bầu có nên ăn quả na không trong thời gian thai kỳ, vì na là một trái có tính ấm tốt cho sức khỏe, bà bầu có nên ăn dứa không vì dứa có chứa nhiều chất dinh dưỡng tốt cho cơ thể nhưng bà bầu ăn được hay không mới là vấn đề.
