Next up is this sexy Plait kimono dress also from miss selfridge. I would pair it with jeans for daytime and its a great way to keep warm depending on which climes you live in. The Faux snake skin oversized bag is great when you're on the move...laptops, water bottles, umbrella and whatever else you wanna log around with you. Its got designer looks but its actually from warehouse and costs £40. The brown slingbacks are from Carvela.
This look is perfect for a party or a date since valentine's day is coming up :-) . I Love this teal slinky backless dress from warehouse and i've paired it with Jimmy Choo open toe sandals...very glam! This fun patterned clutch is from Dune and i think it goes nicely with the dress. The gold necklace is by Swarovski and works well with the plunging neckline of the dress...like the crystals and the large moonlight stone in the bottom circle. I couldnt resist adding that butterfly leather waist belt, i dont know if it necessarily goes with the dress but i just want to covet it! It actually reminds me off something you might find at Tigertem...the whole butterfly element.
I dunno...what do you think?

I love everything about Sophia's oufit! The nude shoes, the earrings and the waist belt detail makes it look young and fun.

Wasted - Carrie Underwood
Beautifully sang with a great message…stop concentrating on the past and live for today or one day you may just wake up and realise you’ve wasted years wishing and missing out.
Sunday Morning – Maroon 5
Massive fan of this band, lovely chill out tune
Last goodbye/Lover, you should have come over – Jeff Buckley Where do I begin, amazing vocal range, beautiful songs, Lover you should have come over always moves me to tears...Deep stuff! Wish he was still here, he would have made even more amazing music but unfortunately he drowned at the age of 28 leaving just one complete album.
Songs of freedom – Bob Marley
Do I even need to explain...what a genius!
I've bought every album she's produced since day one because i can always trust her music. She seems to be the only young female singer who has managed to keep all her clothes on in music videos and maintained some decorum. Love the intro to this song.
Stupid things – Robin Thicke
Dust/your love – Van Hunt
Brilliant brilliant brilliant. Love the neo-soul genre and really tapped into his music at a time when R&B music was getting very blah and samey.
Maxwell!!!!!!! When is he coming back? I've been hearing that he has a new album coming out but that was two years ago. Can't believe he's cut all of his trademark afro.
Everything – Micheal Buble
Such a sweetheart. He manages to perfectly fuse old style swing with jazz and creating a very contemporary sound. I think this and some of his other tracks will definately be on my wedding playlist :-)
Weakness in me – Joan Armatrading
10 things I hate about you :-)
No ordinary love – Sade
Far away – Nickleback
I’d like/Human Angels – Freshly Ground
Forever young – Youth Group
Your body is a wonderland/clarity – John Mayer
I just love the tone of his voice and he's a great song writer. Your 'body is a wonderland' is a very modern take on the love song and i love it, love it , love it!
Back and forth – Aaliyah
Ooh ya its the l-i-y-a-h. Lol! This reminds me of the 90s when i was growing up and wearing hideous baggy clothes and weird coloured leggings!
When you were young – The Killers
Only this moment - Royskopp
Handle me/Be mine - Robyn

The guy sure looks good in a suit...if i had my way men would only be allowed to be seen in public wearing suits. Don't like the shot with the sunglasses!
If you haven't seen 'Enchanted' yet then run to the cinema right now...I'm a sucker for romantic comedies.

My second pick is this lovely and rather pricey Miu Miu leather bag in red with a shoulder strap. It retails at a whooping $1270! Well I guess if you want an IT bag you gotta be willing to break the bank :-)
