Marisota Shapeology Fashion Week


I am a big fan of Marisota, who offer a beautiful range of quality clothing for all ages and sizes. Everything I have received from them has always fit perfectly, adding a touch of class to my wardrobe.

I feel so lucky that they asked me to style my favourite look. Selecting garments from their Autumn range, ahead of their first Online Shapeology Fashion Week. Starting next week, from Tuesday 1st September to Friday 4th September.

Here is a little more about Shapeology Fashion Week from Marisota themselves:

Frankie & Benny's Launches Their Brand New Menu!


On Saturday we were invited down to Frankie & Benny's to try out their brand new menu. We are big fans of the Italian Restaurant so it was a special treat for us all. We looked through the new menu online in readiness, so we knew what kind of things to order. (As if we didn't know;-)

They say:
It's a very exciting time for Frankie & Benny's, as our new menu is jam packed with delicious new dishes, fresher than ever, and inspired by bold Stateside flavours along with traditional Italian classics. 

The family feast sounded a great choice for us.

Perfect for 3-4 hungry folk! All you gotta do is pick your favourites to share... 1. Choose any large pizza with up to 4 toppings (Hawaiian, American Hot, BBQ Chicken or Margherita, or a quarter of each). 2. Add a sharing pasta platter (F&B Meatballs or Saltimbocca Chicken or Spaghetti Pomodoro). 3. Finish with a House Salad or Unlimited Golden Fries.
 I like pepperoni on mine, the children like Margarita and the husband loves pineapple so we opted for the quarter of each pizza. F&B meatballs and the unlimited golden fries. We also asked for 1 starter, dough balls to be bought out with the main (as we all love these) finally a portion of onion rings! plenty for everyone. As always the food was tasty with lots of lovely finishing touches to the meal.


Anyone for dessert?

 Having a sweet tooth myself it took a while to pick. I wish I could try them all!! I finally went for the salted caramel cheesecake with chocolate covered honeycomb with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This was delicious. The children both went for chocolate pancakes, warm pancake topped with brownies & cream, ice cream and drizzled with chocolate flavour sauce. Apparently there was only 200 kcal in this? they said it was yummy. I was waiting to be offered a bit to try, but no chance of that !!

We had a great night... First time at this F&B. Definitely not the last, great service, friendly staff and a lovely well laid out restaurant.  All in the style we have come to expect from F&B. The chips were truly bottomless, unlike some places who never come back and ask. Overall Brilliant.
My Hubby says we can come back on our own when kids back at school. Think he has his eyes on the Sorrento Swordfish dish. Fellow customer plate envy!!!

Sunday Runday : Fitness Catch Up...


I have had a great week for eating more healthy and getting out running.

Trouble is I keep forgetting to log my runs.

I blame summer holidays!!

Some days lately I can not even remember what day it is.

Sunday right!?!

I do love my usual routines and finding time for the gym.

Exercise really does make you feel better in yourself.

Not getting out exercising makes me grumpy!! Haha!!

Thrifty Thursday : Mollies New Toy Box..

On Sunday my husband has a rare day off work. What to do on a lazy sunny morning, when the shops are not open?

We decided to go and visit our local car boot sale. I have been asking him for a while to take me as I wanted to buy Mollie one of those cute little kids pop up tunnels. I fancy my hand at a spot of sheepdog agility training!

I thought I might be able to pick a few good things up from the boot sale and cheaper than the shops. 

First stall I came to had this medium round bag for sale, that just looked like the shape of a tunnel inside.

Not So Lazy Summer: What I Wore...


I see lots of people are getting ready for back to school but we still have 2 weeks of fun left here before my children go back to school. Busy, busy with lots more days out and nights away planned. 

Not to mention my last minute rush in getting all school uniforms brought!! Where would the fun be if I got it all early and not pulling my hair out every year as it is sold out!?!

Off To Uni : The Wednesday Blog Hop..


In a few weeks my 2nd son will leave home and go off to uni.

Does it get any easier when the 2nd one goes, I ask myself!?!

I was so upset when my first son went to uni 2 years ago, I even wrote a piece in the Nottingham Post

Last Thursdays he got his exam results.

He did great.

3A's in business chemistry and biology.

Also got offered a place at the uni he wanted on the same day. What a day. 

Another one to soon fly the nest. I am just hoping I am not so upset I will be crying in the street again, like I did when my eldest went!?!

Bet I will though..

Gel Glorify Asics Exclusive At Intersport..


A few weeks ago I got to review some Gel Indicate Trainers from Asics as part of the Pound The Road campaign. I love to run and having new kit always gives me some extra motivation. I was so pleased how comfy the trainers are. I am happily back into regular running now and each run feels just that bit easier.


Last week I got some very exciting news from The Running Bug , who organised the reviews, that I have been chosen to be one of Asics Ambassadors for the August #PoundTheRoad campaign too.

How exciting!!

This means I get to try out some more fabulous trainers that are exclusive to Intersports.

My Sunday Photo : Parkrun...


My Sunday photo was taken yesterday at Parkrun.

Me, my youngest son and daughter ran it. It was so warm at 9 oclock and we all worked hard. Especially my daughter as she got a pb.  She ran around with her dad, so he could encourage her on. When I had done the race I waited for her to finish so I could cheer her on. Not to far behind me this week too.

I rushed over and gave her a big hug but she was feeling a little sick as she had sprinted to the end..

Going On An Adventure...


We were all excited for the start of the Summer Holidays. 

Nice sunny skies, for six action packed weeks..

Not!! 

In fact more dull and rainy days than sunshine this week.

No worries though, cloudy days can be fun too. All we need is an idea. Some of our most memorable days of the holiday so far, have been when we woke up with seemingly nothing to do. 

Tuesday being a perfect example. We decided to take a trip to Grandmas house that morning, after nice big breakfast.

What I Wore : Walking The Puppy...


Hope you are all having a lovely summer?

We have been having so much fun taking Mollie for a walk in the woods. 

Even though it is summer and some days are red hot, I have been wearing my jeans on or maxi dresses. 

There is a good reason for this!! 

Mollie jumps up all the time and she has such sharp claws!!
