Creative Mondays Blog Hop...


Happy Monday!!

Ready for a blog hop?

On the last day of the school holidays, we treated our youngest two children to a nice all you can eat lunch. Our favourite place in Nottingham is Cosmo.
 

I wore my H & M dress and flat shoes for lots of walking.

What I Wore : 20th Wedding Anniversary...


Happy Thursday lovelies...

How is your week going? 

It has been a mad busy week here, shopping for back to school things. Just my daughters school shoes and bag left to buy, then we are finished!

On Tuesday evening me and my husband went out for a meal to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. It was a beautiful evening. The sun was shining brightly, we could not have timed it better for a nice walk out.  Just the two of us was so lovely. A rare date night out. I also got to wear my lovely new dress that I had been sent to review.


Change your mind about something?

Last week House Of Fraser got in touch with me to see if I wanted to review one of 3 pretty dresses. This was the only one in a size 10, so I choose this one.

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!
