So if you read my post last week you will already know about my win with Next, I was invited to the ShoeboxJukebox party hosted by Next and Company Magazine. This also included a free pair of shoes for me and my guest to wear the the event with the promise of free cocktails, and plenty more opportunities to win shoes galore.. free shoes and cocktails?! an offer no woman can resist! The obvious choice was my sister Lauren from elcy clothing, and after much deliberation we selected our shoes and started planning our outfits! We decided on a smart/casual look so we could take our looks from day to night, we didn’t want to miss out on a day of shopping in London! The theme of the party was around the ShoeboxJukebox, we had to photograph our favourite shoes with the hashtag #shoeboxjukebox, and if your shoes won, the jukebox would go crazy! We had a great time socializing with other bloggers and the girls at Next, and managed to come away with three new pairs of shoes between us, and a good bag to die for! My Outfit –  Jumper: H&M Old| Necklace: Pull & Bear Old | Skirt: Primark | Shoes: Next | Scarf: Zara Old | Watch: Larsson & Jennings | Bag: Zara Laurens Outfit – Cardigan: Charity Shop | Dress: Missguided dress tucked in, Old  | Jeans: Topshop Old | Shoes: Next Don’t forget to subscribe to get my posts straight to your inbox!

So heres a quick round up of my month: I started my blog It was my baby cockapoo Daisy’s first birthday Had an amazing Easter which included winning an egg from Linzi Shoes in their Easter competition.

Selfish

  I think the word ‘Selfish’ is thrown around a lot nowadays as a bad thing, yes it can mean being unkind to another person and that isn’t good. But I think it’s important to remember the true meaning of the word selfish, to look out for yourself and look after yourself, which is definitely something we should be doing!! Most of the time I find myself agreeing to do things I don’t really want to do because I don’t like saying no, but that’s not fair on me, I’m letting myself down! Have you ever not wanted to do something or go somewhere but gone along with it because you feel obliged to? did you spend the entire time thinking of what you could be doing and how you wish you weren’t there? Next time say no! (*Obviously there are times when you shouldn’t say no, your grandma’s birthday party being one of them!*) Remember to treat yourself with the same respect you treat others, and demand that they treat you with the same respect! Being Selfish is a good thing! Sinead

Spreading Happiness

I love this quote, I try to remember this always. Smiling is such a small thing to do and uses less muscles ( hello wrinkles) than frowning. Just the physical act of smiling makes you feel happier when your sad and getting a smile from an unknown stranger can make someones day! I always remember the flip side of this when I feel like someone’s getting at me – don’t let them change your smile! They’ve probably got personal things going on.. they’re not mad at you.. they’re mad at the world!
