What A Difference A Pair of Jeans Makes (And Seville Giveaway)


I have not lost any weight so how does this picture make me look at least half a stone lighter than last week?
The answer is my fantastic new Martha jeans from Top Shop.
I thought Gap Curvy Bootcut Jeans were my perfect jeans until my daughter persuaded me to try these straight-legged jeans.
I am impressed with my stylist.
I have almost finished the travel feature on Seville but as promised here is the giveaway.
I bought this fabulous Flamenco Shawl from a tiny shop in the Santa Cruz area of the city.
I have photographed the label as it shows the exact location of the shop.
If you'd like to take part in this giveaway simply leave a comment and I will assign you a number for the random selector.











If you write about the giveaway on your blog you will get two entries into the draw - just leave a comment to say you have blogged about the giveaway.
Closing Date is Thursday May 6th and the giveaway is open to worldwide entries.
Good Luck.

Today I wore
