Colourful collared sundress

                                                                 Happy Friday everyone.

 I picked up this adorable bright summer dress, even though the weather is still crap this will brighten up the dullest of days.


So this is my half done shabby stair makeover.

I say half done as I am going to do more to the stairs, however I got a last minute appointment for surgery on my thumb for Monday so this has temporarily stalled my stair project. 

However I have finished the hard part and prepped, primed and painted them so want to share some pictures and products I used. 

This is quite a long post so feel free to scroll below for the finished pics and read on of your here for my how to.

This has all the steps, this post is more of a review than a how to x.

Here is some cute dresses I picked up this week that I want to share. 

Sometimes it can be hard to find something that's perfect for work and play but I think these are perfect for both.

Pretty petite jumpsuit.


Hope your all enjoying the fab sunny weather we are having this week! 

Today I have a post for the petites. 
If your short like me you know how hard it is to get a maxi dress let alone a jumpsuit. 

So I managed to find this adorable petite jumpsuit from
