Have you ever tried monkfish?

Evening all!

Let’s start with zee old OOTD.

I forgot about this, until I told one of my friends from work I’d look for some dresses for her to borrow for our works party on Saturday night and decided that I would like to wear this!

The dress is old from New Look. I have black leggings on from Tesco because it is COLD. Belt is also from New Look.

I don’t really like it with the gold belt, I usually wear this without a belt but I have lost a bit of weight since I last wore it and it is a size too big. I’d rather wear it with the black belt I wore in yesterday post but I have somehow missed placed it between now and the past 24 hours!

So yesterday we went into town and did some shopping. I bought the Benefit They’re Real Mascara for Β£18.50 in Debenhams. To be honest, I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I would be with it! My friend said it is really really good but I don’t think it’s amazing. I can get mascara for Β£7-10 and it works just as well.

We then went to a restaurant and I got roast monkfish. I think this is the first time I’ve had it and it was WONDERFUL. I had it with dill and white wine sauce and the house salad =)

This morning was FREEZING! I had to leave the house at 6:30am and it was -4C. I am not a fan of mornings. Or cold. Thank goodness I have a magic button I can press that heats my windscreen so I don’t have to scrape the ice off.

You can see the icy window! And the red snowflake, this snowflake fills me with guilt because because because when it is between 1-5C it shines amber, but when it gets down to 0 or below it goes RED RED RED and it makes me feel like my car is unhappy and I should take it to a warmer place. But I do not.

I am now going to put dresses on Maria (my mannequin) and send them to my friend. I may or may not share these with you tomorrow. =)

Good day all!

    I love the dress, I can take this in for you if you like so you can wear it without the belt again? It looks good with the belt too but then you have option of wearing it both ways? I am excited to see your party outfit on Saturday, have you chosen it yet? Are you wearing the dress of love that I wore on NYE? Also if you haven’t chosen yet don’t forget I have many many occassion dresses you are welcome to borrow… give me a text.

    Monk fish is yummy, glad you tried it πŸ™‚ I like when you try new foods, can you remember the goat in Tunisia? LOL.

    Have a nice Thursday, stay warm and car is ok you know it likes being cold it told me πŸ™‚

    Wow that looks good! I have never had monk fish. Last night I met a friend in Brooklyn and we went to a place called Rebar and I had at the steak sandwich with spiced gruyere cheese. OMG it was soooo good. I do not eat a lot red meat but boy is that sandwich good.
