What I Wore : Day In Sheffield...


Over the half term we had a lovely day out in Sheffield. We go to Meadowhall Shopping Centre on the outskirts of Sheffield quite often in the car. This time we decided to go by train into the City Centre.

Spring Ballet Shoes Ready..


Morning, looks like it is going to be another nice day here :)

Hope you all having a fun half term week? We have lots of fun plans for this week. Cooking, crafting and a few days out planned. I am just hoping the weather is kind to us!?! You know how I  am ready for Spring? I pulled out this lovely floral shirt out the wardrobe yesterday as I am fed up with wearing jumpers. I teamed it up with a pair of jeggings and some new shoes. (more on the shoes later this week)..


Wondering which colour shoes to wear first?


I am going to start to wear more of what I have in my wardrobe now, instead of buying new and try not to wear my comfort clothes everyday.  I had a lovely Cath Kidston dress for Christmas but keep saving it for best.. It needs to be worn. Going think outside the box on outfits in future. Shake my wardrobe up more. More pattern mixing. More wear what I like. Sounds good eh?


What I wore~

  • Shirt : H&M
  • Jeggings : Primark
  • Shoes : c/o Shoe Zone
Hoping to get some garden work done today. Looking forward to making it nice for summer...

 What I wore~
  • Jumper : Primark
  • Skirt : Matalan
  • Tights : Tesco
  • Boots :  c/o Shoetique
Nothing much to say this week...

Only...

Staying indoors is driving me mad!!

Snow after snow. Cold after cold. Poorly sons at home last week. Daughter ill this week. So looking forward to hitting the gym, walks into town and a few days out at the weekend when husband is off work.

Hopefully by then everyone is well enough to go out.

Until then I am sat looking at the doughnuts my husband brought yesterday!! I know I'm not going to stay healthy and good being inside all day,{ maybe I should eat one now to get it out the way!}. Hopefully I will be able to run it off later...

Tartan Scarf And Comfy Boots...


What I wore~
  • Dress : c/o Landsend
  • Scarf : Primark
  • Tights :Primark
  • Boots : c/o Shoetique

Pinch and a punch it's the first of the month :)

Got a good feeling about February, change is in the air...Last month was so cold and miserable I was mostly living in chunky jumpers to keep warm. I had been living in these boots too. With all the wet, snow icy and slippy conditions outside these boots have been perfect for the school run. I am also loving everything tartan. I was so close to picking a new tartan jacket the other day but changed my mind at the last minute. This scarf I picked up from Primark at Christmas for £4.00 such a bargain. Nothing much exciting happening around here at the minute. 2 of my boys have been ill in the week and now my daughter is poorly. Not going out anywhere far this weekend.

How about you?

Been anywhere exciting?

 Going anywhere fun?

Happy Sunday...

Making the most of the lazy summer holidays and looking forward to getting back into a routine again. 

I can not remember the last time I went to the gym!! 

With a week and half left of the holidays I think the children are secretly looking forward to school!?! 

My youngest son goes off to big school! 

Eek, when did he grow up!?! 

Do you ever stop worrying about them!?! 

After his 2 day school visit before the summer, left him going to hospital with a badly cut knee after jumping a fence. 

My oldest son is now recovering well from the 2nd round of penicillin for tonsillitis after 3 weeks of summer in bed resting and not being able to eat with pain. 

So lots of fun plans for the last week of the holidays~

Which involves eatting, days out and our 18th wedding Anniversary coming up in 6 days. 

I am so looking forward to be going to see British Athletics today. Big thanks to Sainsbury's. We all love athletics in our house and so excited to be invited to the Birmingham Grand Prix. Watch this space later for some cool athletic news, pictures and a surprise meet and greet they have planned for me :)

Have a great week ahead everyone...

What are your plans for the last week off before school starts again?

A perfect SummerDay Is When The Sun Is Shining..

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. ~James Dent





Thankfully it is a lovely day again today....

I am not liking the flash floods, thunder and lightning!!

No way of getting out on the bikes with the children yesterday!!

Saturday I did my first Park run 5k race in 5 months.

Back on the running yeah...

But my slowest time, noooo...

27 minutes 10...

On good thing is I've set a goal to improve on..

Will I ever get to 24 minutes?

It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan."

All the best films are set in NY, don't ya think!?!

 How amazing would it be to go!?!

Shopping, site-seeing and amazing food...

Man v Food style meals..

Not that I could eat to much but I would take a look at the sweet challenges.

Diners, huge pancakes and shopping for Jimmy Choo shoes!!

Dream ,dream , dream... Zzzzzzzzzz...

Nearest thing I will get to NYC at the minute is with this Primark T-shirt!!

Haha...


My husband always tells me 'he will take me one day'..

Maybe one year when the children are older ...

I may train up for the New York Marathon..

2 things at once to tick off the bucket list...


Back to earth with a bang and reality..

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!!

Top ~ F and F



Outfit~

Shirt ~ F&F
Jeggings ~ Primark
Trainers ~ Nike


Jumpsuit ~ Republic
Shoes ~ Primark

Now off to see if I can find any more holiday outfit snaps.
