Oasis Chelsea Floral Skater Dress : House Of Fraser ..


Happy Thursday! Hope your having a good week so far? The weekend is almost here...

I am looking forward to this weekend as my Husband has promised to take me out for a date night!! We might as well make use of my older two Sons free babysitting, before they go back to Uni. Plus it will be an excuse to dress up.


Everyone enjoys a good night out. My two eldest are full of stories of nights out, proms, parties and more parties.!!

We never had anything like a Prom when I was at school!! A roller disco or teacher supervised school dance was about it!!

The only time I remember a reference to Proms was in movies such as Grease. Rather like trick or treating for Halloween it is a American influenced modern phenomenon. That is no bad thing as far as we are concerned as my older Boys both have fond memories of their school prom nights. My younger two love Trick or Treating.!

What I Wore : Flowers And Birds..


Happy Saturday! How has your week been? I have been busy doing nothing and getting nowhere fast! Still buzzing from last weekend away and hypo from all the cakes and chocolate I had eaten! Also a bit of an headache from some sparkly wine...

It was so good getting back to the gym over the last few days! Weights one day, spinning the next. I really need to get back into a regular routine.


Today I am sharing another outfit from our holiday. Yeah another rainy day outfit! My daughter also picked me this top to wear when I picked her up from her new school this week, as she loves me wearing this one.

How Do You Handle A Compliment? Creative Mondays Blog Hop...


Happy Monday everyone. Hope you've had a lovely weekend?

Creative Mondays is my favourite blog hop of the week as I get to see all your amazing creative ideas. Link up, have fun reading other posts on the hop and please be kind enough to link back to the hop in your post.


In a recent survey commissioned by George at Asda, they found out that 41% of women feel unsatisfied with their body shape, and only 13% of women find compliments about their body shape to be believable. 

I think we can all find something we don't like about our bodies, especially as we get older. I could easily write a list of things I would like to change. If somebody does pays me a compliment though, I would be smiling all day and believe them ;)

Rain Rain Go Away!! Real Mums Real Style..


Really fed up of the rain now.

Aren't you!?


I do like the rain and I do like going out with Mollie on 2 hour walks in the rain. I don't like the fact I have no dry trainers left to wear!!

I keep wearing a nice dry pair every time I go out. Now they are all soaking wet through. All under the kitchen radiator waiting to dry but its too warm to put the heat on!!

I brought this dress a few weeks ago for my holiday. When I seen it in the shop I loved it straight away. It screamed buy me! When I got it home and tried it on, I hated it! Far to wide, too baggy around the top.  So it was take it back to the shops and not have a new dress for my holidays or pack it in the case..

Polka Dots, Rain, Sunglasses And Holidays...


When you go on holiday and pack only summer clothes, you have to wear them even in the pouring rain.


Thankfully I remembered to take some jeans with me!!

Real Mums Real Style : What A Different A Week Makes...


What a difference a week makes!!

Can you believe how quickly the weather can change. Last week when we were away I packed a suitcase full of summer clothes and it was freezing, gale force winds and raining. Now we are back home, this week it has been red hot and sunny.

Typical eh!?


I wore this dress on Monday on a trip to Meadowhall. We took our oldest son with us before he headed back to Uni, to pick himself something nice for his birthday. 

Talking of birthdays, I still have my birthday money burning a hole in my pocket. When you do not have any spare money you see lots of things you want to buy. Then when you have some, you don't see anything.

Floaty Maxi Skirts..


I have a thing for long floaty pleated skirts. Especially in Summer. They keep you warm when it is windy and cool in the sunshine. I brought this skirt a few weeks ago with some of my birthday money. Talking of birthday money, I can not believe I haven't spent the rest of it yet! I think I need to go shopping, before it burn a hole in my pocket!



I actually have the same skirt from Primark that I brought a few years ago, only the other one has a splash of colour on top. Trouble is I have gain a few pounds since then so I have to lose weight before I will be wearing it again!!

Strive Footwear Review...


A few weeks ago I was kindly asked by Strive Footwear, if I would like to try out a pair of their new premium Health and Wellness sandals. Strive sell functional, healthy footwear and they are the World’s leading foot heath care supplier to the medical market.

Think fashion meets comfort. They sell a lovely range of sandals proven to correctly support your feet with Biomechanical Footbed Technology.


I picked a lovely pair of black patent tee- post sandals. I thought these would go well with everything I wear this summer. As long as the rain stays away.

Me And Mollie..


Me and Mollie loves walkies. It's a good job too as she needs at least 2 hours of walking time a day! Once she has her first walk she just chills, sleeps and eats until her next walk around 2 oclock. Sound like the perfect life eh!? 


We love to walk through the woods. It really chills me out, not Mollie though, she is obsessed with her frisbee!

50's Poppy Dress...


Happy Thursday! 

Hope your having a lovely week so far? 

Busy busy here with the children still on school holiday. Not many days off school left now. My eldest 2 sons have gone back to uni. It is starting to get a little quiet around here now. 


On Monday it will just be me and Mollie, when my little 2 have gone back to school and husband back to work!! Talking of Mollie, can you believe she ate the corners of 3 of my dinner table chairs yesterday!! She is nearly a year old too!! Grr now most of my 8 chairs have been bitten somehow or another by her :(

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!
