Friday Five : 18 August 2017



Hello! Friday Five time. So what's rocking my world this week?


Friday Five (1 of 5) Love A Good Dupe 1


(L) Isabel Marant Nathan Blouse (R) Forever21 Pintuck Ruffle Blouse


That's a blooming good dupe isn't it? Frances looks so lovely in hers, I might just have to get one - the cheaper one of course. The Marant one has sold out now anyway. That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.


Friday Five (2 of 5) Love a Good Dupe 2


Aldi Blackberry Bay Candle (instore)


A while back, Aldi did a dupe of some Jo Malone candles - specifically Lime, Basil and Mandarin, Blackberry Bay and Pomegranate Noir. They flew off the shelves. A few weeks back I picked up the Blackberry Bay one which was on the household goods aisle of dreams. This week, all three scents were there. I think they have become part of their core range now.

Oh yes, if anyone is interested - the cactus vase is £3 from Primark. A dupe of many more expensive ones.


Friday Five (3 of 5) We Are What We Are


Levis T (Levis Outlet Buy)
Mih Jane Jeans (Past Season)
Manebi Leopard Espadrilles (Past Season)


And I am a pretty casual straightforward kind of dresser. I like a pair of jeans, no let me correct that, I love a good pair of jeans and I spend 90% of my daytime life in them. But I do like a nod to the latest trends but I am not full on - put it this way, I can't afford to be. So that makes me a little boring in Blog and IG land but hey I like what I like and I definitely like to be comfortable. And I'm so pleased that Jodie said the same this week in her blog. Thank you. 


Friday Five (4 of 5) Autumn is Coming




And I'm after this trench. I spotted it a few weeks back and tried it on and then put it back as we were in the middle of a heatwave. If you've got a good memory, you'll realise that this is a dupe (it's all about the dupes this week) of the Alexa Chung Frances trench for M&S from a while back.

Well I missed out on that one but I get to have another shot this time round. By the way size down. It comes up big.


Friday Five (5 of 5) Fun in the Sun


ASOS Pineapple Pjs (sold out but new version here which I love)


This is my favourite pic of my holidays. I sat in my pj's (love my pineapple pjs) watching my friend bust a gut doing the Jillian Michaels Fitness DVD and I actually fell asleep watching her. I don't think she could quite believe it. But hey ho. That's me! By the way, she really gets results from it - she has a stronger core as a result of it she says. For some reason that makes me think of apples.

  1. My sister picked my up a couple of the Pomegranate candles in the Bracknell Aldi at the beginning of summer. It's so nice, I've never had a Jo Malone so I'm none the wiser if it smells the same, lasts as long etc. I have to blow them out after a while as I start to get a headache :)
