Black And White Zebra Scarf Necklace : Perfect For A Day In Bakewell...

A few weeks ago I was sent some lovely scarf necklaces from the BHS Spring Summer 2014 collection. I was asked to styled them up on our days out. This week I am featured over on the BHS blog with the lovely Fritha from Tiger Lilly Quinn, sharing our outfis.

First outfit for a lovely day out walking around Bakewell. Dressed smartly, yet fit for purpose I was ready for a day out in the Peak District. I styled this black and white zebra print one with a red tunic, black and white shrug, black shiny leggings and some red lace up boots.

We love Bakewell, the fish and chips taste amazing. Always to full to try a battered Mars bar though!! Have you tried one? They sound so yummy..

We always sit by the river for lunch. Such a lovely peaceful spot even on busy days...

Something so relaxing about having a nice walk around the river...

A cake from the Bakewell pudding shops are also a must!!

Holiday Outfits...

Hi everyone, how is your week going?

Good I hope?

Even though it was cloudy most of our time away, I still enjoyed having fun dressing up. I never take too many clothes for myself when we have a break. The kids take so much. Which means less space for me mum and dad.

 I do like to to take my shoes with me though. 

Heels for night time, check! Comfy flats for day, check! Beach shoes, check! Canvas pumps, check! And trainer for my runs, check! They all have to fit in the suitcase.

I am loving my new belt.

What do you think?

My husband bought it for his holidays, forgetting to try it on....

Aww no, his loss is my gain!! :):)

First up my new H&M cotton polka dot shirt I bought with my birthday money. 

Love this, it is so stylish and comfy to wear. 

My Selfridge's jeans seam to be getting a bigger hole on the knee every time I wear them!

All teamed up with some new red and purple Nike boots my husband treated me too.

But first, let us take a selfie!!

Share In Style : Fruit...

I have chosen lemon and limes..

A great chance to get out one of my favourite dresses I brought a few years back. I love this dress which I picked up from Primark but it has always felt tight on the top half so I though it as about time the price tag came off and I stretched it out a little!!

Allusions Scarf Necklace At BHS...

I am a huge fan of scarves and love my necklaces. When I heard you could buy a combination of the two, I was intrigued. A 'scarfnecklace' who stocks them? Would they go with any of my clothes? How much are they? I was pleased then that BHS sent me some to try. I would soon find out if they were up my street or not.

To celebrate the launch a new line of Allusions jewellery and scarf necklace, BHS wanted some people to give them a whirl in real life situations. Lucky me..

Having 4 children my outfits are usually thrown together, needing to be comfy practical and ready for anything. Certainly when they were babies scarves and necklaces were stored away. Nothing round the neck which an infant can pull is a given. Now my youngest is 8 the odd scarf and necklace has started making an appearance. When these arrived I gave these a run out on a few different day trips. Quick and easy to add to an outfit, giving you a touch of glamour in a hurry.

First up a lovely day out walking around Bakewell. Dressed smartly, yet fit for purpose I was ready for a day out in the Peak District. I styled this black and white zebra print one with a red tunic, black and white shrug, black shiny leggings and some red lace up boots.

Next up a family day out to the Seaside. Lots of walking, out to the beach etc I styled this pink scarf necklace with a flowered tunic, white denim jacket, super fun ripped jeans and trendy pumps.

Finally a shopping trip.

I love this maxi dress I picked it up in the January sales from BHS and it goes perfectly with this red bead scarf necklace . I teamed it up with cute flat ballet shoes (which are hiding under the dress), lovely for a shopping trip with all the children..

I am loving the new range of Allusion scarfs and cannot wait to style some more on the blog over the next few months... watch this space ...

Joe Browns Japanese Blossom Dress Review...

What would be my perfect style of clothing? Something Unique? Vintage? or Modern? Perhaps a mixture of all three? I am not sure, I seem to change my mind daily! Certainly I love shoes and dresses. If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know I like floral or polka dot designs.

It was a pleasure then, to be asked by Joe Browns last week if I would like to review something from their website. I often browse the website as their clothes are right up my street. Modern clothing with a vintage twist and lots and lots of floral designs. Result.

After a busy weekend painting, building a trampoline and gardening I was exhausted. After the school run on Monday I fitted in a quick run and spinning class. Treated myself to a nice long shower, then I decided to have some me time and have a day of dressing up (At least until the kids were due to be picked up!).

I picked this Japanese blossom dress. I loved the style and pattern and thought it would be ideal for the summer season. When it arrived it looked amazing, even better than I imagined. I couldn't wait to try it on.

The dress is really good quality, looks beautiful, fits great and makes you feel really confident when wearing it. I love this dress...

I would like to say a big thank you to Joe Browns for gifting me the dress and my 11 year old son and 8 year old daughter for taking these beautiful picture for me ..

What I Wore : Into The Green

Yeah the fog has gone, the rain has stopped and the sun is shining :)

About time too!!

With a mad busy week planned, and lots of outside adventures to do, it is lovely to see the sunshine out. Over the next few days I have a big decision to make. To do or not to do London marathon? Being injured, ill or injured over the last few months I still have only 1 14 miles run under my belt.

So do I run the marathon with my phone, enjoy it, walk, run, eat, drink, run take pictures and selfie or defer it till next year?

On well we will see.. watch this space...

Dress ~ New Look
Tights ~ Primark

Off now to explore somewhere fun with the children...

What are your plans for today?

I Want To Ride My Bicycle...

I really do not feel like running at the minute. Since tiring myself out with a 14 miles run a week and half ago, I've not ran. This marathon I am training up for is really playing with my mind. Only 2 weeks on Sunday until the big day. I will be glad when it is over!!

Today my husband took me out on a bike ride, I had forgot how good it is going out on the bikes. We had a fun ride to Newstead Abbey and took some lovely picture. Wow it was lovely and warm, so it was a big shock when we came home and seen the snow falling!! luckily it only stayed 5 minutes...

Clap Along If You know What Happiness Is To You...

"It might seem crazy what I'm about to say"
"Sunshine she's here, you can take away"


What do you do when your feeling tired and unwell, it is raining, your carrying your daughters shopping bags through a busy part of London, after your son has been ages looking and buying goodies from the Arsenal shop and all your husband is doing is winding you up taking picture???


Sing and dance in the street to the song Happy by Pharrell Williams and embarrass them all!!!

Sure did the trick...

Notice the mini me photographer in the background?
