What I Wore : A Day In The Park...









What I wore~

Orange strip top - H & M
Mickey top - Primark
Jeans - Abercrombie and Fitch


The weather has been fabulous over the last few weeks. The Easter holidays have been amazing, jam packed full doing exciting things. I have lots of photos to share but finding time to go through them is hard work. Today all 3 children are back to school and I am just chilling on the sofa, Worn out and reflecting on all the things we have crammed in over the holidays. (oh and waiting for the boiler man to fix our boiler! eek no hot water for 6 days!! ) My kettle will need replacing next with how many times I've had to boil it. This is the 2nd wasp that has come out of the attic, whilst he is mending the pipes. Please, please do not say there is any more! :(

I can not wait to get back into full training, now the marathon has come and gone so quickly. Once my blisters are all better !! Yes I decided to try and get in London marathon next year and I am in the ballot. Chances are I wont get in again, but I would really like to try and give all the things I learnt in the first 2 year a try out for the 3rd time.

These pictures were taking in a park in London over the holidays, aren't the spring buds stunning?

On Saturday will be co-hosting a Share-in-Style blog hop with Mis Papelicos and the theme is accessories, it would be great if you stop by and share your lovely outfit posts with us?

MILLETSPORTS Review...


Last week I was pleased to be asked by Millet Sports if I would like to do a product review from their website.

With getting lots of miles in, over the last few months with my marathon training, I was ready for a new pair of trainers. Running regularly the experts say it is better to alternate your running trainers to help avoid injures.

Perfect timing then!! Many different sport articles recommend also changing your trainers around 300 to 400 miles of running in them. This means once back into full training, in a few months to hit my goal of 200 miles each month this would mean a new pair of trainers every 2 months!!

Millet sports is not a website I was familiar with so I was looking forward to checking out their running products. The website caters for a variety of  different sports including- running, triathlon rugby, cricket, football and many more. I am a big fan of Nike sportswear and trainers, something about this brand that fits me like a glove.  After browsing their website I went straight to the running section, selected the trainers category, searched all the brands for Nike and them ladies size 7's.





What I picked from their website...

As mentioned above, Nike is my favourite sports brand. My favourite all round training shoes are their Air Pegasus style. I picked these + 30 model. These women's running shoes are perfect for my foot shape and running technique. The features are a lightweight mesh upper with no-sew overlays and a premium foam midsole for breath-ability and comfort from start to finish.

Benefits...
  • Engineered mesh upper with no-sew overlays for ventilation, support and comfort.
  • Cushlon foam midsole with Nike Zoom unit in the heel for soft, responsive cushioning
  • Sidewall cuts for superior shock absorption
  • Rubber Waffle outsole with lateral blades for traction, durability and a smooth transition.
  • Deep flex grooves for natural range of motion and flexibility.
  • Nike+ ready.
  • Price £64.99

About Millet Sports...
  • They started life over 20 years ago when Simon Millet founded his first Millet Sports shop in north west London. 
  • A keen tennis player and sportsman, Simon wanted to set up a store selling performance sports equipment combined with a service to offer expert product advice, unlike the sports fashion stores that were taking over the high street at the time.
  • The last few years the business has grown from strength to strength, adding more sports categories and a growing team of sport-minded colleagues to service the increasing customer demand.

What I think of Millets Sports website...

I was very pleased with the fast delivery, when you want to buy a new pair of trainers it is nice to receive them fast, they arrived in less than 2 days of ordering. They have a great selection of products to cover a wide range of sports. Comparing their running selection , which I know most about I would say the prices are very competitive. They offer a 24 hours delivery service if you order before 1pm priced at £5.95. Also if you spend £50.00 or more and want a standard delivery it is free within mainland UK.


About this review-

I got sent an item of my choice, in exchange for a honest review of Millet Sports. All thoughts are my own honest opinion and I was not paid for this post.
