So these are the H&M pants I mentioned the other day, which I bought right in the middle of my attempts to stop buying as much.  Although I think you'll agree from the quality of them, that a purchase was a must and actually it was ok to bend the rules slightly.  For £7.99 these are amazing.  Really thick fabric which makes them leggings that it's ok to show your bum in (I even went as far as adding an embarrassingly close close-up of my derriere above to show off the zip detail on the back), nice thick pleather detailing and the selling point for me was that they're extremely tight, so suck in all manner of lumps and bumps!

It's been a long while since my proper outfit post.  I've been thinking about taking another direction with Scaredtoast, so there'll be more of a mix up of posts and while I'll still be doing outfit posts when I think what I'm wearing warrants it, there'll definitely be some posts that weren't the norm for me before.  But there's a bit more on that in an update post to come later in the week.

Oh, and I also need to clear something else up.  I got a email from the lovely Amy who sent me the Nail Art nail tattoos.  I'd mentioned in my post that I struggled with the application, and thought that the way to do it was to press the nail down onto the design as a transfer.  Turns out the way I'd read the instructions originally was correct - you paint your nails, peel off the sticker from the backing paper and then stick it down.  I'm not sure why I struggled with this, perhaps the sticker I was trying to use was a bit more stuck down than the others.  Either way, I'm happy to have found an alternative method of applying them incase I ever have this trouble again!

So what else can I tell you?  I'm back into the swing of things at work, and can't wait for October/November so I can start wearing cosy scarves and boots.  And I'm seriously debating getting another tattoo too.  Come to think of it, I never really showcased my latest one on here, would anyone want to see it?  I know I'm so nosy when it comes to other people's tattoos!

    1. Yeah, I think they're either dead expensive or a bit plain and worryingly tight. The leather detailing on these helps to break it up a bit and doesn't make me worry so much about my thunder thighs! x
