Pitter patter of tiny feet ...


Well there is now a pitter patter to be heard in the Dickinson home. The pitter patter of tiny little feet from my new baby; Luna. She is my new PUPPY haha. She is a chihuahua yorkie cross (chorkie) and she is gorgeous!!

I wanted to share some photos with you and its prime time now as she is 4 and half months old and full of character. I absolutely adore her. I am going to use what I buy for her and where to take your pooch for walks etc asap!

Enjoy the photos and I am sure you will be seeing more in the future ....

Ciao, Rachael xx

The Mourning Period ...

Hi everyone,

So today I am feeling a little sad. Today is the day that my favourite pair of shoes have shrivelled, worn away and died. I have owned these shoes for the last 7 years. They were a beautiful pair of black gladiator style heels and I wore them with very pretty dresses to give them a bit of edge for all of those 7 years - think SJP style. I adored these shoes. Don't get me wrong, they had an excellent innings as I only paid around £30.00 for them from New Look - but why I am extra sad is that I now have a situation.

Do I establish a mourning period where I respect the loss of shoe and wear something a little less edgy until the guilty feeling goes away? Or, do I (like most normal people) just embrace the opportunity to purchase more?

Well, I have decided to have a look around and I must say, I am not totally impressed with the choice available to me. In fact, most styles now are the heavy clunky types that my ankles and I just do not look good in. So, I decided to check out Ebay.

Ebay have a lot of sellers who sell items brand new with a buy it now price and with the safety of paypal, you are often getting a bargain, quickly and efficiently.

I will link below for these beautiful shoes but they are just so amazing that all of my shoe guilt disappeared and I ordered them in black AND red, whoops! I cannot wait for the arrival of these shoes but I just hope they are as comfy and sexy as the poor soles (get it?!) laid at the bottom of my charity bag*.

Thanks guys,

see you soon,

Shoes are available from: work4best x

*I don't make a habit of putting wrecked, dirty or stained items in a main charity bag, but I do pop them into a separate bag and label them as "rag". The charity shops get a lot of money for these bags as they weigh them in. x

A September Wedding ...

Hi everyone, so this past weekend I was away to Peterborough for a good friend's wedding, and a beautiful wedding it was.

I met Tori when I did the Great Wall of China Trek in 2011 as she was a fellow trekker. I have since stayed in touch with several people I met on the trip, including Tori. Her and Luke are 100% made for each other and to be a part of their special day was magical, so thank you guys!

Their wedding took place in the Holy Trinity Church, Orton Longueville, followed by a reception in the Best Western Orton Hall Hotel right next door. Very convenient!

I had an abslute nightmare trying to find an outfit for this wedding. In the end, I picked out two choices from Joules when I was in keswick recently. In the end I went for a blue number with cream accessories.

In the evening, I decided to change and I wore a black and white dress from dorothy perkins that I have had for a while.

Let me know if you want specifics of clothes etc. and I will let you know. I got a fab spray tan and eyelash extension deal too with a lady from Billingham so let me know if you want her details.

Thanks guys,
