Peach Blossom Spring Dress : Joe Browns Dress Review...

When we were on holiday a few weeks ago I received a email from the lovely people at Joe Browns. They asked me if I would like to style one of their beautiful and unique items of clothing from their new Autumn/ Winter range. Yes please, I love their collections ..I picked this fabulous vintage floral style Peach blossom peach spring dress. The new in range of Shangri-La and Sovereignty are beautiful and inspiring collection. 


Where does the time go!?!  I can not believe we celebrated our 18 year wedding Anniversary last week. Eek 18 years have just flown by. As we had just come off our holidays we decided to leave it till last weekend to have a night to ourselves and go on a date night <3...


Luckily for me, my son took delivery of my beautiful dress when we were away. So on our date night I went out in style...

Happy Sunday...

Making the most of the lazy summer holidays and looking forward to getting back into a routine again. 

I can not remember the last time I went to the gym!! 

With a week and half left of the holidays I think the children are secretly looking forward to school!?! 

My youngest son goes off to big school! 

Eek, when did he grow up!?! 

Do you ever stop worrying about them!?! 

After his 2 day school visit before the summer, left him going to hospital with a badly cut knee after jumping a fence. 

My oldest son is now recovering well from the 2nd round of penicillin for tonsillitis after 3 weeks of summer in bed resting and not being able to eat with pain. 

So lots of fun plans for the last week of the holidays~

Which involves eatting, days out and our 18th wedding Anniversary coming up in 6 days. 

I am so looking forward to be going to see British Athletics today. Big thanks to Sainsbury's. We all love athletics in our house and so excited to be invited to the Birmingham Grand Prix. Watch this space later for some cool athletic news, pictures and a surprise meet and greet they have planned for me :)

Have a great week ahead everyone...

What are your plans for the last week off before school starts again?

Today I am sharing my favourite items I have been wearing time and time again this summer holidays. I love my dresses but my ripped jeans have to be the most worn item on days in and travelling days out. Sitting on buses, trains and in the car on days out my fitted boyfriend jeans have seen the most wear. Also lots of walking my Converse have been perfect for comfort and looking stylish. 

Going for a casual laid back look, with all my hair tied back today I am sharing some pictures from a lazy day out in Bakewell. So many amazing flowers to see and a lovely walk around the town and up to the Church on the hill.

What I Wore And A weigh In!!

Morning...

Hope you are all well and enjoying the summer holidays? 

We have been busy filling our day with fun, exercise, laughter and eating lots of yummy food when out and about. which reminds me, I have my monthly fitness test at the gym this morning!! 

I wonder if the old body fat has come down? or if the chips and doughnuts on days out at the seaside over the last few weeks has made it go back up? Why I am feeling so nervous?

It is only a fit test! 

Maybe because I want to improve? and get my body fat down a little, to help with my running. I find it so hard to be motivated for exercise when the children are off school though!

Do you? 1 step forward, then 1 back.

Oh well, here goes! Wish me luck!!




What I wore~ 

Top ~ Charity shop
Jeans ~ Abercrombie and Fitch
Shoes ~ Converse


Don't you just hate bedding new shoes in?

Ouch on the heals..

Helene Berman Classic Pea Coat From Gray And Osbourn Review...



A few weeks ago I was asked by Gray & Osbourn if I would like to review something from their Autumn/Winter collection. I was happy to be sent a sneak preview email of what will be arriving in their on-line boutique next season. The collection looks great and this lovely Helene Berman classic pea coat caught my eye straight away. 

Every Autumn I like to treat myself to a new coat, something that is going to last the distance. Being worn each day throughout the Winter. It has to be good quality, a great style and a colour that will go with almost everything. I love this Navy coat, I think the colour is very versatile and goes with my outfits that I will wear this Autumn and Winter.

I pictured this coat looking very stylish with fitted jeans and long boots. Perfect for looking casual and stylish for the school run and days out shopping. Also great for wearing over dresses for nights out. I was right, it does look great with everything.





About the Helene Berman classic pea coat from Gray & Osbourn
  • This iconic, military-inspired coat comes in a luscious blend of rich wool and sumptuous cashmere for a refined appearance and wonderfully soft touch. 
  • Authentic double-breasted front, crested silver-tone buttons, front pockets, long sleeves with buttoned tab trims and buttoned half back belt.
  • Dry clean.
  • 68% Wool, 17% Cashmere, 15% Polyamide. 
  • Fully lined: Acetate.
  • Product available in sizes: 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20.
  • Colour ~ Navy
  • Price £199.00

A perfect addition with jeans for the school runs and dresses for shopping and nights out.





What I think about the Classic Pea Coat

I really like this coat, Navy is strongly becoming my new favourite Autumn colour. The coat feels so stylish and very high quality. 

I am a size 10 and was advised that this style can be slightly slim in fit, and I was recommended to go a size bigger. I would say not to go a size bigger and choose your true size in this coat. This size 12 feels so big, definitely a full bodied 12. I am sure the size 10 would have been a perfect fit? (not sure if you can tell from the picture with the buttoned up front? but it sticks out at the back). 

 No worries though, it will come in handy for the winter when lots of jumpers are required. As it is too big I prefer it open for a classy look. 

About this post-

I got sent this coat for review.

What's In My Bag : Dash Beach Bag Review...

The weather is amazing and I am so looking forward to taking the children to the beach. Yesterday the post man delievered me this lovely raspberry stripe tote bag from Dash to review. 

A perfect sized bag for what I would need.

 Not to big, so you can find things quickly and not to small, so you can fit just enough in. 

This bag will come in very handy for a day out to the beach.





What's in my bag?

Everything for a day at the beach.

Sun cream, jelly sandals, towel...

Phone, camera, money...

and train tickets..


I packed my bag straight away, with my essentials for a day out to the seaside. Whoops forgot the sunglasses in the picture!! being on my head!!

Now my bag is all packed, I can not wait to go to the beach with the children.

About the bag
  • Raspberry Stripe Tote, a classic pop of colour for every ensemble.
  • With navy pu trims and durable canvas straps, this beach bag is the ideal summer accessory.
  • Finished with a cotton lining and zip closure.
  • Fabric Detail: 100% Canvas 
  • Wash Inst: Wipe With Damp Cloth 
  • Style: Tote
  • Was £19.00 now £12.00

What I think of the bag

It is a nice medium size bag that fits all the above in perfect. I like the fact it has a zip along the top so nothing can drop out. It fits nicely over your shoulder without hanging down to low. There is no inside pocket, which is a shame as I like to put my phone or purse inside a pocket for easy access. The first thing my 17 year old son as was "is your bag designer?" I could tell he thought it looked nice and expensive. Loving the pattern, it is very stylish. I think it is a great buy for only £12.00.

I got sent this bag for review. All thoughts are my own honest opinion and I did not get paid for this post ...
