Orange Is The New Black..

It has been a beautiful sunny day today here for a change! I am starting to think I can pack my Winter clothes away? 

I have replaced my go too plain black jeans and long sleeved plain black t-shirt, for a new colour I am loving. It is the in fashion colour of Spring.... Orange. Lovely and bright, reminding me hot temperatures are on their way.

I really need to work hard at the gym over the next few weeks. Everything I put on at the minute, is pulling tightly on me. A nice excuse to go shopping though!

At The Park : The Wednesday Blog Hop..

One day last week, after school we went to visit my parents. Before we arrived we stopped at a local park and did our evening run. It is lovely to run in day light and another bonus, the sun was shining! Still very cold though.

Lovely to see lots of Spring colours around, the swans on the water and the daffodils popping up all over. After our mile run we stopped to watch the sun starting to set.

Crooked Spire And Signs Of Spring...

After such a freezing cold Saturday, it felt like a dream to have it warm and sunny on Sunday. I really needed my sunglasses on as the sun was shining so brightly. My husband had a rare Sunday off work, the children was off school so a nice family day out was called for.

What I wore~
  • Coat : c/o Gray & Osbourn
  • Bag : Cath Kidston
  • Jeans : Matalan
  • Boots : c/o Shoetique

We had a lovely day out in Chesterfield. Sundays are the perfect day for a nice lazy walk around the shops. Not to many people around so you can shop at your own pace. We had a fun time, sight seeing, stopping for photos at the Crooked Spire, shopping and had some lunch out. We even spotted beautiful signs of Spring around the corner.

A sunny and warm day. Fun family time. Cool things to see. Yummy hot chocolate. Sunday lunch made for me makes a nice change. Spotting signs of Spring = A perfect Winters day :)

How I Will Be Wearing My Next Paralympics GB Supporters’ Scarf....

The lovely people at Next have sent me one of their official Paralympics GB Supporters’ Scarves and want to know how I will be wearing it.

The scarves have been designed by Next as part of their support for London 2012 and are the must have item of the summer!

(All profits from the sale of the scarves will be donated to the British Olympic Association - helping British Olympic and Paralympic athletes deliver their best performance at London 2012 and beyond)

Here is some ways  how I will be wearing the scarf....

What are your thoughts?

And using it to shout them on....

Want to try and win some great prizes?
The ‘Wear it, Wave it and Win’ prize draw on the Next website where people can upload photos of themselves wearing the supporters’ scarves and win some great prizes, including London 2012 tickets kindly donated by the BOA/BPA.to visit there website to buy your scarfs and upload your photos c

What Next say about the scarf:
Next are proud to present the historic Must Have Item for the 2012 Olympic Games a stylish scarf.

However you wish to wear it, the Must Have Item is more than a piece of attire. It is a piece of British history, a memento for you and of one of Britain’s greatest teams.

It has been designed as a tribute to Team GB and this is reflected in the nine hundred athletes that are shown on the scarf. The detail and preparation that has been applied to the scarf represents the detail and preparation that every athlete puts into their training throughout their lifetime.

Thousands of symbols create an overall picture of the powerful Team GB lions head. The 60 hands within the design signify one for each of the million supporters. The 900 hearts, figures and stars are for the athletes we love, the athletes themselves and to show each one is a star.

Every scarf will have the XXX symbol to proudly show Great Britain is the only country to ever hold three Olympic Games. 14 Paralympic lion heads will humbly sit among the design to state the 14th Paralympian games that this Must Have Item celebrates too.

This multi lingual scarf, appeals to everyone who wants to be involved within the Games, regardless of their nationality or heritage. All four countries that make up our nation are embodied within the design by a British Rose, Welsh Daffodil, Irish Flax Bush and Scottish Thistle.

More frequently used symbols such as telephone boxes, minis, London taxis and London buses all help create a sense of location, while not forgetting the M1 to show that this Olympics is involving the whole country.

All Olympic sports are represented in the scarf design. This is shown through figures running or fencing, cycling and rowing. It might be an archery board or sailing boat. Each and every sport can be viewed in the scarf, as each and every Olympic sport will be taking place in Great Britain.

For those you who like a challenge there is one map of Great Britain hidden in the complex design. See if you can find it!

The Must Have Item can either be a fashion accessory, a great piece of artwork or even a fun game to play. But whatever its use it is a piece of history to keep and something we can all be proud to wear.

The scarf can be bought for £10 and is 90x90cm, it also comes in a smaller 50x50cm size, priced £5 and can be bought in any Next store.

About this post...
I got sent one of the small scarves for this review and was not paid for this post....

Keds Shoes Review...

Spring has sprung and what a great time to think about summer shoes and clothes!?

 Last week when the sun was shining it was a good reason to clear out some of my winter things I no longer need, to make way for my new season wardrobe.

I love shoes and any reason to buy shoes even something tenuous such as a new season can and will be used to justify a purchase!
