Vintage garden party with Marks and Spencer

We moved to our house over 2 years ago and we are just getting round to do the garden... it was really over grown when we moved and finally we got round to clear it and now we are in the process of building a massive shed.
After the shed is built we'll turf the rest of the garden and my other half has left me in charge of the garden furniture and other fancy bits and of course we're going to have lots of bbqs and garden party weather permitting!

The garden now:

So when I went to M&S today and they had some nice things for the garden, here is my wish list:

Lovely mosaic table, buy here

tropical party anyone? buy here

Let's water the plants in style, buy here
You can have some PIMMS in this pretty tumblers, buy here

How cute is this planter?, buy here

Here some other pictures of things I saw in store that I really liked:

What do you think? Do you like spending time at your garden or spend your weekend having picnics somewhere nice surrounded by green?

Fashion at the supermarket with TU Clothing

Today Sunday was a lazy day, catching up with emails and chatting with friends and mostly chatting with my friend Val about affordable clothing as we both need to get some new stuff for the summer.

She really likes trying things on and so do I but I am so used to online shopping that it hasn't bother me much till now because I have changed size and the last few things I ordered online I had to return as my old sizing was not good anymore.

Great, so the High Street options available for a size 18 are not amazing...and then I received an email from Sainsburys...about an exclusive look to their new TU collection and website so you finally will be able to shop online.

First I thought...yeah TU clothing a bit boring...full of basics...I have bought a top in the past while getting my groceries but nothing amazing...
Not anymore! I am not sure when are they launching their online shop to the rest of the world (probably lots of bloggers have had this email preview too) but some of the stuff is pretty cool, the website will be you may want to try entering using your email, I believe some of the clothes are already available at most Sainsburys superstores.

Here are my favourite bits, they all go up to size UK22 (EU50):

How good is this stuff ha! And the prices are not bad either right??
I am definitely going to pay more attention to the clothes next time I am shopping my groceries there.
Do you like any of the items? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Sorry I've been missing :(

Hi everybody, long time no see.

Wow I have just realised I have not posted anything since last August...
Let's just life has been pretty hectic and there have been lots of changes.
I was also kind of fed up of the rubbish quality of my pictures and I really can't ask anyone because my husband to be is total useless with technology let alone cameras!! He still uses one of those old-fashioned mobiles not smartphone.

I am going to try to write post more often and they are not all going to be about fashion or plus size stuff because I no longer buy many clothes I am in a process where I am trying to change my lifestyle, I am more into sports (specially cycling) and also trying to get preggers :)

We had a lot of work done to the house we bought a couple of years ago (how time flies) so a lot of my money went into that instead of clothes and shoes.

But summer is aproaching and I do need new clothes because I have lost some weight and I am 2 sizes smaller, with the money I have earnt from my ebay sales (a mere £200) I am going to try to update my wardrobe!

I hope you keep reading my posts whatever topic I talk about it.
I will definitely catch up with my other beloved bloggers...Also expect a design refresh in the next few days.
Lots of love,
Pat xx


Hola chicas, cuanto tiempo sin escribir!

Desde el verano pasado madre mia.
Para contaros la historia corta simplemente decir que mi vida ha estado llena de muchas cambios recientemente.
El hecho de que las fotos de mi blog no eran de muy buena calidad también me ha hecho parar de publicar post de moda pero ahora tengo una camara más molona (molona??? aún se utiliza esa palabra en Espanya? jajaja).

Hemos estado de obras en la casa que compramos hace un par de anyos así que tampoco tube dinero para comprar ropa.

Pero con el verano a la vuelta de la esquina y ya que he perdido peso y bajado dos tallas me voy a ir de compras pronto con lo que he recaudado en ebay unos 250 euros!

Escribiré más posts sobre otras cosas aparte de moda espero que os gusten.

Mucho amor para todos,
Pat xx
