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?

Do You Still Have Dreams?


Happy Mother's day to all the mums out there, hope your all having a lovely day...

It's great being a mum and getting spoilt once a year by you kids :)

My children brought me lots of yummy chocolates, a swimming cap and goggles (for after I've eaten my choc's?) to help me learn to swim better instead of only doing breast stroke and hurting my neck..


My son is home from university for a month and I had forgotten how much he eats!! feeding 5 of us is a big shop twice a week but 6!! haha no stop shopping and filling the fridge back up...

I know he is on a mission to help me get fit, help encourage me with my running, swimming, fitness and watching my biscuit and cake obsession, who knows I could be fitter in a month!?!

Yesterday we had a lovely lazy Saturday. The little 2 did not fancy going to far away as it was lovely and warm. So off to the park we went. Taking about what the had been dreaming about my 10 year old son asked me " mum do you still have dreams?" "How old am" I replied? "I'm not to old to dream!!"

Then he asked "But what do you dream about"

Trying to think em, "our old house when you were small, my old house when I was growing up," em "I can't quite think off hand"..

Then he replied " is it posing, selfies and blogging idea?

Haha you have to laugh, err maybe son, but I can't remember??!!"



What I Wore~

Sunglasses ~ Primark
Jacket ~ Matalan 
T-shirt ~ Primark

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...




Outfit~

Shirt ~ Primark
Skirt~La Redoute
Tights~ Primark
Boots ~ Up-cycled here

Any ideas how to get my running mojo back?

Hows the weather been for you today?

"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???


Answer~

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

What I Wore...



The only trouble with having jeans with holes in the knee is that I am always rushing to get dressed and end up putting my foot through!! Grrr....

Loving this Spring weather we are having, the sunshine really does put you in a good mood, their is is a chill in the air though to remind us Spring is not quite here yet.

Last Thursday I got up to 14 miles on my run and was feeling really pleased but every time I push myself harder it knocks me down with a bang. This week has been a struggle again with my running and there is only 24 days 2 hours and  33 minutes till my marathon race day ( when posted this post!!) Not that I'm counting or anything ;)

I really need my name putting on my vest this year. It is no fun running a marathon when others have their name on theirs and everyone is cheering them on an not you!!

Lucky for me I did get to run along side some Claire's!!

This year I am just going to enjoy the race, all the people in it last year and I ran around feeling sorry for myself by going to fast maybe and hurting my knees half way! Thinking of taking my phone with me to do some pictures and see if I can spot any famous people this time around.

Jelly Sandals : Next Big Trend?



Remember wearing the jelly shoes and sandals or shoes when you was younger?

I remember wearing them around the 80's and my children wearing them when they was little too.

I had the big holey see through plastic bags too, loved them!!

They brought them out for adults last year but are set to be a big trend this year as they are everywhere I look!

Not brave enough last year but at a bargain price, I will try any fashion trend.





I have seen all colours around and mostly priced between £9.99 -£19.99 but when I stumbled upon them today in Primark at £4.00 a pair, I had to buy some.

Which colour florescent, no black, no glitter...what to do? oh well I brought all the colours they had in!!

What do you think?

At first try they feel so comfy too...

If I get on with them ok, I'm going for the style with a chunky heel next...

Scarf ~ c/o School Gate Style
Shirt ~ Primark
Cardigan ~ Primark
Jean ~ Matalan
Shoes ~ c/o Keds



With my husband having a Saturday off work today we went Shopping....Yeah...

A Quick visit to my mother-in -laws house, and a trip into Chesterfield for breakfast,  and me to buy some crafting things first.

Then off to shopping to ....Meadowhall.

Can't believe we went today, if you watched Ant and Dec's Take away show  tonight? you will have seen the super computer is going to be there on Monday giving some holiday tickets away,,,Grrr can't get Monday!!

A mad few hours around the shops, wow it is packed on Saturdays, them home for some yummy Pizza.

This time I had a plan, when it is busy, shopping with the children too and I have no plan, I end up buying nothing. So this time I had a plan, new shoes for walking miles when we go to London. Something bright, comfy and fabulous.

Converse! ...I had these in mind! After changing my mind in every shop, blue ,red, pink, light blue I ended up with these.

With 5 coloured tongues that could go with most things I own, what not to love!?!

Wake Up Its A beautiful Morning...




Wake Up Its A beautiful Morning (as the song goes) ....
It so is!!
How beautiful has the weather been the last few days?
It is a pleasure jumping out of bed in a morning now!!
And not wanting to stay under the warm covers in the dark...
Sun risings early and setting later!
I just love Spring...
More daylight and sunshine is just so perfect..

Not a good start for my running though, after a mile I had a nose bleed, so I ran home feeling very sorry for myself. A trip to the gym later me thinks... Spring cheer me up tights on today, a beautiful School Gates Style scarf from the new 2014 Spring/Summer collection and my favourite red lipstick has really put a smile on my face :)

What I Wore : Meadowhall Shopping...



I love editing pictures :) do you like the above ones?

On Saturday we went shopping to Meadowhall, after trailing around the shops I eventually came back with nothing new! 

Must be a first for me but nothing caught my eye.

I am so over winter and spring is so close but yet it is still to cold to think of adding anything to my summer wardrobe, yet I do not want to buy winter clothes.

So I saved my hubby some pennies, I am so good to him :)


What I wore ~

Jumper ~ Primark
Jeans ~ Abercrombie and Fitch
Belt ~ Primark
Shoes ~ Primark


Cool shadow of my youngest son bless him. He will make a great photographer!!

How is your wardrobe looking?

Ready for spring clothes yet?
