I'm so gorgeous they want to put me under arrest.

Hey dudes! I'm still not blogging about Paris yet, or about the last two episodes of Scott and Bailey ('cause I know you're all hanging out waiting on all that stuff) but here's what I've been wearing for the last two days of my Me Made May challenge. Getting photos is a bit more difficult now I'm back at work - but my darling friend SJ offered to take photos of me again, so that's cool.

Anyway, the weather was glorious yesterday - although, I was having a busy day so I hardly even managed to look out the window! But when work finished, I took to the park with Nic for an ice-cream, before going for a walk to visit Lysy and The Scientist to eat rhubarb crumble and drink red wine. It was a good day!

Tuesday 7th May 2013 - Calamity Jane dress, Love Me Tender shoes from Office and sunglasses from Magpie Mexicana in Leamington

I fupping love these sunglasses. They're too ridiculous for words - which, to be fair, you could describe this whole outfit in that way.

I don't look nearly as polished in my photos for today, all. Today was a long and very busy day. But it was a good one! I had a job interview this morning for a promotion, and after lunch they told me I'd got it! It's a job in my current team, but it's a new position, and it's a significant increase in responsibility and in pay grade. Which is awesome! My job stresses me out often, and that's often down to the administrative burden - but this new job means that bit will be taken away from me and I can focus on other things. I'm really happy about it, so on the way home I bought some champagne. Oh, and a Zatchels satchel from Berylune...

Extraordinary Garden dress, topshop shoes, Zatchels 16" satchel in cornflower blue, oh and I see some champagne there, yo...

Don't look at my face too closely - I look like ass, but the dress looks nice. Look at that! Today was pretty intense as I was in work at 7:30 for a meeting, then straight into my interview - which was conducted by two people I work closely with, which added to the weirdness - and then into a basically wall-to-wall day. So, I decided to treat myself to this satchel, which I had spied when I called into the shop on Saturday to wish them happy birthday and drop a present from Paris off to the girls. I actually ordered an 11.5" green satchel from the Zatchels birthday sale a few weeks ago, but I fell in love with this one, so made it mine! If you're in the area, pay a visit to Berylune, they have a gorgeous range of satchels all organised in rainbow order (very important) and it's just the sweetest, funnest, prettiest shop to visit. You'll leave lighter of wallet and lighter in heart, too!

I call this the IMMA GET SO DRUNK TONIGHT face...

And speaking of Berylune and on the subject of why I'm so great - more workshop dates have been booked in. I'm going to be teaching the Colette Patterns Hazel dress over two Sundays - 26th May and 2nd June. Included in the cost of the workshop is your own copy of the pattern to take home, your zip and interfacing and notions and also, most importantly of all, CAKE.

Right, now I have to get down to drinking this champagne and putting stuff in my new bag. Paris and Scott and Bailey soon, honest.
