School Run Style...

The lovely people at Best British Bloggers got in touch with me about a school run style bloggers competition that going on over at Joe Browns website.

They are giving bloggers who are mums the opportunity to win £250 worth of Joe Browns gift vouchers.All you have to do is create an outfit from the styles on Joe Brown website and blog about it.

If you want to join in too Click here.

They have lots of beautiful dresses and tunics in and it was hard narrowing it down to one set but here is the outfit I have chosen.


As the weather is very changeable a jacket is always great to have to hand.I think this looks great for dressing up and down.

Polka dots make me pop!!

I love,love,love polka dots and flowers are my next favourite pattern so this looks fabulous...

One can never have to many jeans and as these are called awesome fit jean then these sound perfect....

Best Of British Espadrilles- I would never say no to red shoes.These look great not to high and not to low...

So what do you think? do you love my school run style as much as I do?

Working Out With The Davina Range At Next....

Part of the next blogger network

My new years resolution didn't actually start on the 1st January as I had planned.It was cold and very windy and just too hard to get myself back out running after a lazy month of not much exercise and eating to excess over Christmas. The husband under my feet and four children still off school did not help either!!

After a few more days of wallowing, the 5th January was to be my exercise New Year. A quick weigh in to find I am 3lb heavier and off out the front door I go. A short few mile run to get the legs going again.As always after a spell on the sidelines it's hard work.Hopefully it will get easier as the year goes on..

I have decided this is my year to get super fit I have had 5 years of getting to a stage where I call myself a runner, albeit a slow one.I did a personal best race time of 53 minutes for a 10k race in 2011 even though it was my best I want to get quicker.This year I want to do under 50 minutes and try if I can to get close to my ultimate goal of 45 minutes.

I am back into my running now,yet feel to go to the next level I need to do more, so have rejoined the gym and am starting a Zumba class this week with a friend.One thing Santa did not bring me this year was some new sports kit, I was pleasantly surprised then, when I found out I was one of 10 lucky bloggers to road test the new Davina range for  Next.

remember my post? Next New Shoe And Fitness Collection

I am really fed up with my clothes this week which I picked for the Twenty-Twenty September. I'm not sure if it's my clothes ,the very cold weather then very warm weather or just very very tired from my 200 miles of running in a month challenge.

I am looking forward to next month for getting to wear what I want and not to much running.As I'm not feeling to good about my clothes I thought I would brighten up my pictures of what I've been wearing this week :).....

This is the hop for the Twenty-Twenty September...
