Obsessed with Pyjamas!

I am now fully stocked up on pyjamas (pjs) from christmas pressies and the ones I had picked up in the sales on Saturday.

On a daily basis I am told I now own too many pairs. But there is a story as to why this has happened and my collection is growing so large. 

Before I lost weight being a size 26 was impossible for fashionable items at affordable prices. I usually had two pair's of black bottoms and just wore them with over sized t-shirts for bed. This was the case for as long as I can remember. I am now making up for lost time...

Here are my latest additions to my wardrobe -
I picked up 2 pairs of Victoria's Secret pjs - These sets were part of the christmas offering at VS they were really expensive at £46.00 for what they were. You get a top, bottom and matching eye mask. I picked them up in 2 prints in the sale 50% discount, one is quite festive but they are a lovely fit so we may need to roll xmas into the new year.

VS PJ in sale from £46 to £23
VS PJ in sale from £46 to £23

Marks and Spencer Square Bear twosie - I have had my eye on this lovely set for most of winter, they were £30 but they are slightly novelty. When there was a 30% off day in December I ordered a pair online as I didn't want to risk not being able to find any in the sales. These are my favourite as they are so cosy, how cute is the bear?!

Nixipixi1 has the same pair
Sainburys Festive bottoms and instead of the matching hoody in the image I got a fluffy red jumper to stay warm and cosy.

Sainsburys Pj's are always affordable

Marks and Spencer white with red stars - I saw these and I thought it would they would be handy to match up to other items in my collection they are also fleecy so they are super warm too.

M&S

Hope you all have a good collection of pjs too, I can't believe I wasted so much time in boring nightwear and it is now such a bonus to be able to wear clothes from nice shops on the high street.

Enjoy the rest of the festive season and stay warm and cosy!

Lush Festive specials part 1

Just a quick post to tell you about some of the festive Lush specials I have been relaxing in over the last few weeks. I still have a Melting Snowman and my favourite Golden Wonder I haven't tried yet. I will update you on these in part 2.

Dashing Santa
The christmas specials are most likely in the sale now at Lush, but I am not sure I will be buying another Dashing Santa. 

He looks very festive but unfortunately full of disappointment. He did make the bath water red but there just wasn't much fragrance unlike other treats I have had from Lush recently.


Good job Butterbear game to the rescue... He might be small but melted into a lovely lemon oil. Thanks Mr Bear for making me have lovely soft skin.

Butterbear
Part 2 coming up soon.

Review! Bill's - New restaurant arrives in Durham

There is a new restaurant in town (Durham City)....Bill's.

I had been to Bill's before when I visited Windsor in May. So when I heard Bill's was coming to town I couldn't wait to go. It opened last Monday (15th) so me and my friends booked and went Tuesday lunch time for a girlie christmas dinner.  It looked like it had been open for ages, it was jammed packed at 12.30 there was no waiting time on ordering or getting food. Pair that with great service equals a pretty perfect customer experience to me. 


I had the french pink soda which arrived with fresh strawberries which was a nice touch. 


Left over food on your plate? Bag it up and take it away.



The interior is shabby chic with beautiful lighting and mirrors. The menu is mediterranean influenced but some foods have a twist on what you would expect.   



Miss A had the same as me
I chose the Mac & Cheese from the menu which came with cubes of butternut squash, spinach then topped with pumpkin seeds & rocket. I love mac and cheese and it was nice to try it in this way, the combination worked well except the butternut squash was a little undercooked for my liking but I will let them off it had only been open a day. 

Sweet Potato Fries - AMAZINGGGG!



Mrs L had the Fish Finger sandwich
Mrs J had the Halloumi burger

Miss BW had the mezze but we all helped her out
Mrs D had Beef burger with bacon


Bill's lived up to the first impression I had earlier in the year, and I will be heading back next week with more friends. It will definitely be my first choice for a location for brunch or meals out in Durham going forward. It's so nice to have somewhere new to go especially when it had such a lovely atmosphere. 

I had a celebration when Zizzi came to town so all we need now is Bagel Nash and Tim Horton's and I will be a happy lady.

What is your usual at Bill's? 

Love Miss K xx

My Little Box - By Fleur de Force | December

I am a newbie to My Little Box which launched in September this year in the UK. Already hugely successful in France with 80k followers. I had been checking Instagram for updates on the couple of boxes before I eventually subscribed. 

My social media friend Hayley got a beautiful box from Diane Von Furstenberg in October and I missed out on beautiful scarf! I thought I best subscribe quick!


The Fleur de Force box is my second box, I will do a follow up post on Novembers incase you want to see what that contained. Fleur is one of my favourite bloggers and you tubers. She is very professional and is quite picky with who she collaborates with. 

How much is it? Pay monthly of £11 plus postal charge.

Whats in it? It's different from Birchbox and Beauty box and has more than beauty items inside (i.e. bit of everything plus a hint of creative).

What age range is it for? I think all ages from teenager to adult. If something is not your taste I am sure a friend will take it off your hands. 

Within the monthly magazine there are some lifestyle articles plus ways to use the items inside the box with some quick and easy baking ideas or this month make your own personalised tea light holder.


What I like most is the illustrations and variety of contents. In this box there were cute gift tags and string plus stickers for packing up those special christmas gifts.


As an individual package was a cute black sparkle headband that would suit most ladies and keep your ears warm. (I think there is a few colours available but you don't get to pick).


Inside a little cotton gift bag were the beauty specials this month - L Occitane face cream, a beautiful orangey red lipstick perfect for Christmas day plus some Cowshed body lotion.


If you are wanting a little treat each month and it is always beautifully packaged, I would definitely recommend trying out My Little Box in the new year. There is always a different theme and its something to look forward to and more than £11 worth inside.

Review! The Trout Inn, Oxford


With my job I travel to areas of the UK I wouldn't normally get to see. For the second time in a month I have found myself in Oxford yet I still didn't get to visit the designer outlet, Bicester. I will have to arrange a visit early in the new year for a weekend so I can go to Blenheim Palace and to the discount shops! But..from what I have seen Oxfordshire looks very pretty.

One night this week I was staying over and a colleague knew of this local gastro pub to go for a meal. We visited The Trout Inn in a near by village called Wolvercote and it was so lovely and welcoming on a cold December evening. It was dark so I didn't get to witness the river thames view which is a highlight of the location.



We sat in the main restaurant as the pub is quite large and there was alot of variety and rooms to choose from. But it was nice to be in the heart of the atmosphere.

There was a festive menu on offer but I opted for the usual menu and there was alot of choice of fish and vegetarian dishes on offer.




For my starter I chose Red Pepper and Tomato soup which was very tasty, and has inspired me to maybe try and make some this weekend.

Then for my main course I Gnocchi which came with sweet potato and balsamic onions. It was topped with goat's cheese as it was quite strong but wasn't really to my taste but I really enjoyed the rest. 



Twice cooked chips were really yummy
Unfortunately there was no room from dessert and from what I have seen on instagram, I missed out on some yummy creme brûlée :-(

I will definitely return back to the trout as the food and service was really outstanding and affordable. 

Hope your having some nice food this weekend.

Miss K's November Favourites!



I have already been chased for my November favourites by my lovely friend Miss W, so I thought I better sit down to write and share them with you.

I have been trying out a few different shampoo's recently I just couldn't find one I liked. I want volume, nice fragrance and doesn't dry my hair out too much. I really needed some mini size toiletries for a plane journey and ended up trying out the soap & glory shampoo & conditioner! LOVED IT! Smells great both during washing and after blow dry. Great volume!! Plus my hair isn't greasy on the 2nd day (double win!).



Revlon Colorburst - 120 (hot pink)
Rediscovered this lipstick after finding it went really well with my French Connection dress that was in my capsule wardrobe (update on that coming up!)
I have never really been very confident to wear bright colours on my lips but it definitely feels like it now finishes off my outfit so I am going to try harder to choose some more colours I could wear.


Costa christmas drinks!
Food favourites this month are not very filling foods but they are yummy. Black Forest hot chocolate from Costa is back for the festive season! I have had a few but I think I need to cut back because they are a bit too naughty. Back on the flat white coffee's now.


Fruit corner 

Muller Corner - Apricot & Peach I haven't had one of these for a long time, I do enjoy eating yogurt for breakfast so I thought I would try one of these. This is 160 calories which is higher in calories than I would normally have so they are not a daily choice for breakfast :-(

I am new to Reece's pieces but my friend Terry has got me hooked! arghhh. If I buy a packet I keep them in a little box so I can have a few at a time then hide them for another day. Little amounts of nice things keeps you from over indulging too much.


Revenge
Revenge is my favourite tv series this month. I have been looking for a new series to watch for a while and I did try watching this a couple of times but after watching 3 episodes back to back I am now addicted and on the 2nd season in only a few weeks. Love him or hate him, Nolan is my favourite character. 


Get ready with me - Party

Lily Pebbles is my favourite blogger of November and I am already really enjoying her vlogmas on her YouTube so far in December. Lily is a full time blogger and is always up to exciting things and has a really good flare to share her opinion. I follow Lily mostly for beauty and blogging tips as her relaxed fashion isn't really my style but she has expensive taste so we have that in common. Check out Lily!
