Recent-ish Buys & Olivia Rubin Giveaway

Hey guys. This week has been great i've almost reached my target weight of 75kilos. I used to be 60 and now im 70 so i've just 5 more kilos to go. It may seem strange wanting to gain weight and not lose it ut I was very tall and very skinny and heroine chic isn't a look that I want. I'm almost 6ft so 75kg is a good target weight :)

Now I just need to firm up my stomach area and i'll be a happy bunny. I've also cut my hair short and i'm very happy with it. I have a fondness for short hair as its easy to manage and doesn't take forever to dry.

I haven't showed off any purchases for ages so I thought i'd share some of my recent purchases with you :)

Now to the giveaway.

Olivia Rubin is a designer that I love alot she creates some really gorgeous dresses and is worn by a whole host of celebrities including Cheryl Cole.

I bought this dress during Vogue Fashion Night In. I loved it as soon as I saw it but unfortunately its a size 8 and I am no longer that size so I thought i'd do a giveaway for it as its never been worn.
