The Cat’s Pyjamas – A Loungewear Special

tumblr_nzpqdbLyxF1ucvzzwo1_500

I love being comfortable.

My idea of absolute bliss is coming home, slipping into a fresh pair of pyjamas (preferably something loose and in a jersey material) and lounging. Books, baths and some form of televisual treat will obviously ensue, as would one hopes, something delicious to put in my belly.

I’m not very sexy about the house, in that I’m not a negligee kinda girl but I think my husband is impressed nonetheless. And he better be.

I ordered the best pair of pyjamas last night and NGL, I can’t wait for them to arrive. Unfortunately, my ASOS Premier account has expired and I’m trying to prove to myself that I don’t need it (I totally need it). This just means I still shop as much but I have to wait 3-5 days for my items to be delivered for free. It’s quite thrilling really.

Anywhoo. I thought I’d share what my cosy heart has it’s eye on at the moment. I like doing the odd shopping post because it is a big part of my life. I do like to dress well (ish), even when I’m only sharing my evening with my boyfriend, Netflix.

Donut Print PJ Set, ASOS Curve £24 – These are my new pyjamas-to-be and I couldn’t be happier about starting our new life together. Will I leave the house again? Probably not.
Valentine’s Heart Sleep Tee, ASOS Curve £18 – Slightly tongue-in-cheek and cute. I recently purchased my first sleep tee* and it’s a joy to bum around in, like the big nighties we had as kids. Plus it’s sooooooo soft I could die.
T-Shirt and Spotted Trouser Pyjama Set, ASOS Curve £24 – This is a cotton set and it looks so fresh. Plus polkadots never tire, and that’s a fact.
Valentine’s Heart Printed Leggings, ASOS £18 – These are totes adorbs and that’s that. Not a full set but these would be lovely under an over-sized tee, plaid shirt or nothing else at all *shocked face*.

All these picks are from ASOS which is standard. I did go on a hunt for cute plus size PJs elsewhere but came up pretty short. The majority were boring, not in my size or weirdly slogan-y. I mean why? I have to say I wish Missguided’s nightwear range extended to their larger customers (maybe it will) and New Look was just depressing. Not all fatties love butterfly print, y’all. Be better.

Lounge Jumpsuit in Marl, ASOS Tall £28 – I’m definitely not tall but what I wouldn’t give for this in a short-arse length! Looks so perfect for chilling out maxin’.
Giant Spot Pyjama Set, ASOS Curve £30 – What did I just say about polkadots? And these ones are mahoosive. Nobody would ever lose you round the house in these puppies.
Giant Animal Tee & Jogger Pyjama Set, ASOS Tall £26 – Another from the Tall range but how could I leave these babies behind? So good.
Fleece Onesie with Ears, ASOS Curve £28 – I want this so badly but I know if I ever get it, that’s it for me and the outside world. Forever.

So that’s me and my ultra glamorous wardrobe plans. I will try not to spend the remainder of my wages on lounge pants.

What’s your hanging out routine? Are you pyjama person or do you keep it a little more sassy?

Apologies to the lovely ASOS models whose heads I cut off in the above images.

*I sleep in the nuddy FYI. I just can’t settle if I have to wear clothing 😄😄😄

What I’m Digging: My Internet Wish List (with a Valentine’s Twist)

It’s January payday today and boy has it seemed like a lifetime away.

But now it’s here, of course my eyes are on things I can purchase to make my life infinitely better (relax, this is mainly a fantasy thing, my credit card is staying firmly in my wallet for now).

(Mostly).

The bulk of my dream items are from ASOS as is the norm but I’ve tried to branch out a little bit. While I was thinking about this post I kept stumbling across a lot of Valentine’s themed gifts so I’ve incorporated some of those for shits ‘n’ gigs, even though it’s not one of my favourite ‘holidays’.

Still, maybe a secret admirer will click on a couple of these links. You just never know. But to the goodies – what’s floating my boat during these difficult (and wet months)?

Sweet Treats (under £10)

ASOS NO YOU DIDN’T Valentine’s Pom Slippers, ASOS £10 – Comfy and super cute!
The Smiths T-shirt, various sites (around £10) – Hilarious (my example is actually £12.50 from Etsy, but you can shop around for a better deal)
Paperchase Male Torso Cocktail Jar, ASOS £6 – A touching tribute to the male form, and handy too. Especially when you’re trying to drink more water…
Paperchase Valentine’s Lips Money Box, ASOS £6 – For saving pennies to buy all this toot

Think About It Splurges (under £25)

Hattori Hanzo Ladies Regular Black T-shirt, Last Exit to Nowhere £20 (although I had a discount code to save 15% in January) – I can’t gush about LETN enough and buy something from them every year for my beloved. This month it’s my turn, and what better way to start the love affair than with a tribute to my favourite film? – BOUGHT IT!
Suzywan Sweet PomPom Hoop Earrings, ASOS £15 – Lush! I do love a PomPom – BOUGHT THEM!
Woven Tapered Peg Leg Trouser in Mono Stripe Print, ASOS Curve £25 – Smart and funky (like me?)
Brunch Club Sleep Tee, ASOS Curve £18 – I’ve had my eye on this lounging lovely for weeks now… lounge wear is the greatest – BOUGHT IT!

Blair Sweatshirt, Rad £29.90 – Gossip Girl was and is one of my favourite things of all time, as is Blair Waldorf so what better way to represent? Plus: cosy
Plus Size Velvet Ribbed Midi Dress, Missguided Plus £30 – So very pretty
Adidas Originals Pharrell Williams X Todd James Superstar Trainers, ASOS £59.50 – for smashing it at the gym in style. (Honestly though, probably too nice to wear on the treadmill)
Skinnydip ‘Girls’ Heart Across Body Bag, ASOS £28 – possibly my favourite thing on this page – BOUGHT IT!

So that’s me and what’s caught my eye recently online – and yes, I lied above. I’ve already purchased a few of these beauties because I’m totally worth it obviously.

What’re you eyeing? ❤

What I’m Digging: My ASOS Wish List #2

It could be said that I have a real issue with shopping. I shop when I’m sad, I shop when I’m celebrating, bored, frustrated, uninspired. Yes, I know this is not a good thing.

I’m making the effort to change my habits though, because there are other things I need to be doing with my money, such as paying for night classes (gonna be a coder, innit). Sometimes, it’s okay though to break your new rule with a pay-day treat, or a little something you just know it going to make you look like a fucking rock star.

Here are the things I have my eye on this August:

Sweet Treats

I look *almost* as perfect as this model

I feel I also have to share with the group that I’ve finally found the Jumpsuit of Destiny.

I’ve waited months for it to come back into stock in my size and now I’ve got it in my possession and it’s incredible! It fits like a glove, cinches in where I want it to, flows where I need it to. I’m in jumpsuit heaven, I tell you!

So, what are you into this Summer?

What I’m Digging: My Internet Wish List

I haven’t done a post like this since January and that’s a bit poor frankly. I’m a great consumer who’s always shopping, usually in the sales and usually within reason, but shopping none the less.

I always have a wish list on the go, even (and especially when) I’m trying to be good. Maybe writing about the things I have my eye on will be enough to satisfy my cravings? Here’s hoping.

Like before I’ve lobbed these beauties into categories. Plus, I’m going to look beyond my ASOS Saved Items list this time, though it will definitely appear because, well, ASOS is life.

Sweet Treats (under £10)

Now all I need is a new job that pays me more so I can treat myself to all these things because I deserve them. Um, I mean, I don’t really need any of these things so I’ll stop thinking about them immediately.

What are you digging this Spring?
