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."

NYC...


One place I have always dreamt of going to is 'New York'. 

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..

All the exercise I have been doing over the last few week have finally caught up with me. 

So a nice easy week for me and back on it Monday...

Just before the children break up for summer on Wednesday...

What I wore~

T-shirt ~ Primark
Scarf necklace ~ c/o BHS
Jeans ~ Abercrombie and Fitch
Shoes ~ Longsdale

Where are your dream places to visit?

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...

Vintage Style With A Modern Twist...


Good morning everyone :)

I am up with the birds tweeting this morning and ready to go!!

You know when you have so much to do, and do not know where to start? well today is that day!!


I wore this outfit on a rainy day at the weekend.

We had a few hours spare so went to Medowhall shopping centre in Sheffield.

You know when you don't have money and see lots of things you want to buy? then when you have birthday money, burning a hole in your pocket but can not spend it?

Well that is what kind of day I had.

And to top things off I tried to buy a few pretty silver rings from a well known jewellery shop the day after. Another location but the staff was to busy chatting with friends to serve me, even though I had money in my hand!! So I had to walk out empty handed.

So I still have my birthday money to spend.

Now torn new rings ot new shoes?


I wore this dress on Saturday, as my husband mention it in a conversation.

He spotted a picture on Facebook and said-

"I've not seen you wear this dress in a while"

"You look lovely in this"

So off I toddled upstairs and went to pop it one ..


Outfit~

Scarf ~ Primark {new love this, can you see the little pink flamingos?}
Vintage style dress ~ c/o Sainsburys {about a year and half ago}
Shoes ~ Converse


Remember me saying I have so much to do today want to get done.

Well here goes~

Get children up, feed, lunch boxes done, to school.
Paint the downstairs toilet.
Gloss the coat rack.
Gloss the shoe rack.
Paint ceiling.
Paint the hallway.
Gloss the hallway.
Paint ceiling.
Get 2 more loads of washing done.
Get rest yesterdays washing dry {did 5 loads as its been raining a week}.
Go shopping { 3 miles walk, round trip } to buy some cool bits for down stairs toilet {wash basket, accessories ect}.
Have a look for something to spend my birthday money on.
Catch up with blog comments.
Build a trampoline.
Go a run.
Make dinner for everyone.
Visit parents.
Do an outfit post.
Do 99% of this list!

And all with cold water, mind you. 

Having to boil the kettle every time we want some hot water.

As the boiler man is still so called mending my boiler, charging me lots of money 4 weeks after I phoned him.

So hopeful he will arrive with a part he has been waiting 2 weeks for today too!?!

I can but hope..


Now to pop my old clothes on and start on the decorating...

Think I will pass on posting photos of these though, haha...

Have a good day :)

What are your plans today?

My Birthday Over For Another Year...


Wow this weekend has just flown by!!

Yesterday I turned another year older!

Had too much good food and was spoilt to bits with a lovely afternoon shopping in Meadowhall.

Always a good idea to wear flat shoes when we go on a shopping trip with the kids though ...

Shame my fun day turned to a tunnel vision migraine at the end so I had to save my box of Kripy Kreme doughnuts till today..

I brought some lovely clothes (will share later in the week) and now have enough money to buy some fabulous shoes.

Only enough for 1 decent pair though, so should I go with a heeled pair of Irregular Choice or a cool pair of trainers, not ones to run in, cool ones to wear with jeans?

That is the question?

Or wait till the summer sales and buy both?


Outfit~

Dress ~ Primark (few years ago)
Shoes ~ c/o Cheeky Shoes (original ones)

Off to enjoy the sunshine now and do a spot of gardening .. How quickly has the grass grown!?!

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
Jeans ~ Firetrap
Jellies ~ Primark
Breaclet ~ c/o cutey

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?
