How Do You Wear Pearls?


A few weeks ago I was asked "How Do You Wear Pearls?"


I love to wear costume jewellery, especially pearls (remember this outfit?) but I have never actually owned a real pearl necklace before. You can imagine how excited I was then when Claudia Bradby Jewellery asked me if I would like to review a piece from their SS16 collection. They have a beautiful collection of cultured pearls.

Red Telephone Box : Wednesday Blog Hop..


Not often you see a red phone box nowadays.

We saw this one at Wollaton Hall on Saturday. 

It was such a miserable day and pouring it down with rain. I always get a nostalgic feeling when I see one. Temporarily warming me up!! Did you know the minimum you can put in a call box now to make a call is 60p !!! It was 10p when I last used one. Inflation.......



My son was racing here and he came home so muddy!!

Can't wait to go back another day when the sun is shining!

Perhaps make a call???

Tu Activewear From Sainsbury's : Review...


So far this year I have been relatively quiet on the exercise front. A runstreak with my Daughter, along with a few Parkruns has been about it. No more!! I have rejoined the gym and as they say "I am back on it."  My arms and legs can tell I have not done much. Giving me that tell tale sign of lack of use. Talk about muscle soreness. I am walking like John Wayne!!  

Weights in the gym on Tuesday, then to top it off a tough spinning class on Wednesday. 
At least I know I have worked hard, even if the kids are laughing at how I am walking!!



An ideal time to be sent some new sportswear to road test then. I don't know about you? but some new clothing always motivates me into getting out and about. 

Sainsbury's have asked me to review 2 pieces of their new fitness range. It should be hitting stores any day now. Keep your eyes peeled!! UPDATE.. NOW IN STORE AND ONLINE BE QUICK!! You can find the Sportswear here

New Boots : Creative Mondays Blog Hop...


Happy Monday everyone. Hope you have had a lovely weekend? It has been so miserable here, cold and damp. Roll on Summer...


A few days ago I mentioned that I have spent most of the month in running trainers or wellie's for walks with Mollie the Collie. So this weekend it has been lovely to break that routine and wear something else.

Jar Amnesty Challenge : The Weekend Blog Hop...


This month Foodies100 and The English Provender Co. have come up with a fun recipe challenge. They have invited bloggers to come up with a tasty recipe. With a chance of winning one of ten £100.00 vouchers for Waitrose/John Lewis.

So today I came up with a tasty new idea to go with this delicious Sweet Tomato and Chilli Chutney. Adding a new twist on one of my family favourite, Chilli Con Carne recipes.


Everyone knows that chutney goes great with cheese. Does a cold Sweet Tomato and Chilli Chutney go together with a hot and spicy homemade Chilli Con Carne though? That is the question we had to answer with dinner this evening.

The Flowered Dress...


How quickly is January flying by!?

I am not a fan of this cold, dark and miserable month. It is so hard to get motivated to go out for a run in the cold. I like to be nice and warm, even before I start! Having a dog makes me stay slightly fit by going out for walks at least twice a day. Also my daughter doing her own run streak, has helped me keep going out running. Even when I do not feel up to it.


This month I have mostly been living in wellie's for walkie's in the muddy fields or trainers for our after school running. Makes a change to get dressed up!!

One thing I miss in the cold Winter months is seeing the pretty flowers growing. So I am wearing them on my dress.
