And I’m not just talking about the weather.

Lots of lovely big things are happening here at This Little Lady…including a complete site overhaul which will hopefully make visiting us even more pleasurable!

If there’s anything you’d like to see more of – or something you don’t like & would like me to remove – don’t be shy with the feedback. I’m a tough little cookie you know :)

However, this, and a horrible night of pain and sleeplessness last night (BOO) may mean that I go a little bit quiet over the next couple of days. Don’t worry though – I’ll be back with a vengeance!

In the meantime, don’t forget to enter our fab competition to win 2 tickets to see Way out West when they’re at Ministry of Sound next month, and check out London for Less for the latest and greatest London deals.

Bye Bye Summer….

This weather isn’t very fair, is it.

I thought Summers were supposed to be getting hotter? Evidence please!

Anyway, I’m not too sad about the Autumn creeping up on us. I like cosy time. OK, I like sunshine more, but I find comfort in cuddling up in fluffy jumpers and big socks, with a mug of steamy tea on the sofa.

SlanketSo I’m not at all upset to have found this latest snuggly gem.

Ladies and Gentlemen….I give you….THE SLANKET!

This huge, cosy blanket looks absolutely divine and I can’t wait to get my hands on one. It comes in a huge range of colours, is super soft, and has big sleeves so you feel like your wearing it like a giant fleece.

All I can say is…BRING IT ON WINTER…We’re ready for you!

(Currently available in the UK for around £35 from Prezzy Box and Fire Box)

LFW: Win Win!

I am soooo busy.

London Fashion Week is almost upon us, and it’s all go! I have some fabulous competitions, exclusive coverage and tip top goodies coming for you, but I though I’d start with this…

my-wardrobeThose lovely people at My Wardrobe are currently running a competition in association with marieclaire online and The Dorchester Hotel, and have asked me to let you all know about it. The prize for two lucky winners of a night in the hotel with dinner and breakfast, treatments at their spa, a spend on my-wardrobe.com and finally, you get to attend the Twenty8Twelve show!

All you need to do is fill in your details and you’re in with a shot.

Good luck!

Met the Parents!

OK, OK, so you were all right. I needn’t have worried. I’ll listen to you all in future, I promise…you’re a wise bunch.

The Parents are lovely! Not sure why I was expecting otherwise – after all, their son is pretty cool. But they’re everything you’d hope for; kind, funny, chatty, generous….and absolutely fabulous hosts.

GalwayIn all it really was a fabulous weekend – the sun even came out for us on Saturday, which was highly unexpected but provided perfect mooching weather for our little stroll through Galway City Centre. We explored the tiny but packed market, with gorgeous organic produce, freshly made sushi and home made preserves.  We spent far too long in Sheridans cheese shop, tasting almost everything, and leaving with a deliciously ripe and stinky bag of top quality, locally produced goats and cows cheeses. We stopped in the most archetypal Irish Bar we could find for a swift half of Guinness – the black stuff tastes so much better on it’s home soil – and we visited the Meyrick hotel for a delicious but ridiculously large afternoon cream tea. Beef finger sandwiches, 2 enormous scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, and three pastries really was too much….but believe me, we worked hard at it!

For The Boys Daddys birthday, we went for a great family meal at the Pier Head in Kinvara Bay. The food was good, the views even better…jokes a plenty and not even too much wine!

Kinvara BayAll too quickly it was Sunday – which we started with a full Irish Breakfast – one of the largest and most delicious starts to the day we could have wished for. The rain was back with a vengeance – turning the lush greenness of the day before into a strange, greyish colour – so we succumbed to a day of sport of the TV, cuddled up in thick socks on the sofa, messing about with the Dachshunds before tucking into the freshest, juiciest, rarest steaks, straight from the farmer down the road for our tea.

There isn’t one single things I could find to complain about. The Folks live in a stunning house in the middle of a beautiful, rural location that I would love to revisit. Boy-wise, food-wise, relaxation-wise and meetingthefamilypanicover-wise, I had a perfect weekend….and I feel like a very lucky little lady right now.

Hope you had as much fun.

Be great to hear what you got up to! x
