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!

Street Style : What I Wore...


Today I am sharing a what I wore post and a few pictures from a day out in Chesterfield. 


My outfit was a black jacket, black and white dress, black tights and white Converse. I though I would post them in black and white to give more of a street style edge to the photos.


The weather is still nice one minute and cold the next so I wore a nice Spring dress and faux fur coat.

My husband was off work today and we decided to go for a long, long family walk. With a train ride chucked in. We also walked 10 miles in, out and around Newstead Abbey in Nottinghamshire. It was such a beautiful day but when the sun went in it was really cold.

How Do You Wear Pearls?


A few weeks ago I was asked "How Do You Wear Pearls?"


I love to wear costume jewellery, especially pearls (remember this outfit?) but I have never actually owned a real pearl necklace before. You can imagine how excited I was then when Claudia Bradby Jewellery asked me if I would like to review a piece from their SS16 collection. They have a beautiful collection of cultured pearls.

New Boots : Creative Mondays Blog Hop...


Happy Monday everyone. Hope you have had a lovely weekend? It has been so miserable here, cold and damp. Roll on Summer...


A few days ago I mentioned that I have spent most of the month in running trainers or wellie's for walks with Mollie the Collie. So this weekend it has been lovely to break that routine and wear something else.

The Flowered Dress...


How quickly is January flying by!?

I am not a fan of this cold, dark and miserable month. It is so hard to get motivated to go out for a run in the cold. I like to be nice and warm, even before I start! Having a dog makes me stay slightly fit by going out for walks at least twice a day. Also my daughter doing her own run streak, has helped me keep going out running. Even when I do not feel up to it.


This month I have mostly been living in wellie's for walkie's in the muddy fields or trainers for our after school running. Makes a change to get dressed up!!

One thing I miss in the cold Winter months is seeing the pretty flowers growing. So I am wearing them on my dress.
