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.

Out For Pizza : What I Wore...


Last night I got chance to dress up for a change and go out, out! 

I keep saying we should go out more but we always opt out last minute to stay home in the warmth.

What I Wore And Back To The Gym...


Hope your having a lovely Wednesday?

I have been back at the gym today after a few weeks away. First it was the school holiday keeping me from going, then last week I got a really bad cold. Today I felt like I was starting again.

Just over a mile run with my dog Mollie after the school run, felt like really hard work so I booked in 2 classes at the gym to make me exercise!!


A 45 minute body pump class and a 45 spinning class did the job!! After the bike ride home and a bar of chocolate I felt good again!

A Walk In Sherwood Forest : What I Wore..

One day last week we spent the afternoon walking around Sherwood Forest. The children were off school for half term, so keeping them occupied was obviously top priority. 


The sun was shining brightly, with a slight Autumn chill in the air. A great time to wear my new jeans and Poncho from Sainsbury's then!

Fun In Nottingham...

Last Saturday me, hubby and two youngest children all got to meet up with our eldest Sons/ little 2's Brothers in Nottingham for the day. I think study; Uni sounds like none stop parties for the first few weeks!

Youngest of the 2, sounds like he has freshers flu, or just a little horse from all the late nights out and shouting.

It was great to get to see them, things are so quiet around here since they left. I got to hear all about what they have been up to! Well I'm sure I didn't get to know everything!!


I could not resist a quick shoe picture in the Autumn fallen leaves...

What I Wore: Kensington Palace..


Last time we went to London we visit Kensinton Palace. 

Whenever we visit London, we know there will be miles of walking involved, so flat shoes are a must!

Not So Lazy Summer: What I Wore...


I see lots of people are getting ready for back to school but we still have 2 weeks of fun left here before my children go back to school. Busy, busy with lots more days out and nights away planned. 

Not to mention my last minute rush in getting all school uniforms brought!! Where would the fun be if I got it all early and not pulling my hair out every year as it is sold out!?!

Red Buses And Pound Shop Banta!!



Over the weekend, I had a wardrobe freshen up. Anything I had not wore for a long long time, got cleared out. At Christmas I mention I was going to try and wear my best clothes more often. Then realised I had only wore my favourite London Buses dress {which my eldest son brought me as a present} once!

Is Today Going To Be The Busiest Shopping Day In Nottingham?...


Did you hit the shops yesterday for Black Friday and bagged yourself a bargain? 

Or did you stay at home like me to leave the falling out and fighting, {I've been reading all about on the news} to someone else?


This morning I'm up early to do some shopping in Nottingham. Forgetting until I read on Twitter yesterday it is suppose to be the busiest Saturday of the year. Eek.... Wish me luck...

Here is what I wore for shopping in Nottingham last week, when it was raining...

Too Hot For Jumpers, Too Cold For T-shirts!!


You know when it is too hot for jumpers, and too cold for t-shirts!?!

Yes?

Well that!!

It has been so mild over the last few days, not that I'm complaining, I am really hoping the cold weather stays away until we can find someone to mend our gas boiler!!

Off to do some shopping in Nottingham at the weekend I decided to wear a nice warm jumper for the mile walk to the train station as it was a bit fresh.

Only thing is the trains/shops/shopping centres are so nice and warm...

You have to keep taking the jumper off then keep putting it on again... 


What I wore~

Jumper ~ Primark
Scarf ~ c/o School Gates Style
Jeans ~ Abercrombie and Fitch
Boots ~ Barratts
Bag ~ Primark

Now the school holidays and inset days are over its back to the gym today...

I have been so lazy for the last week 4 weeks!!

How To Wear Posh Wellies : Over 40 Style...


With a heart patterned dress, a chunky warm cosy cape and some bright yellow tights...


I wore this outfit in the school holidays on a trip to Meadowhall for a meal out at Frankie and Benny's. 

Initially we planned a nice day out shopping and looking for Christmas Ideas, but unfortunately our Gas boiler has broken and it put a bit of a damper on the day and a cap on spending any money. 

This outfit cheered me up though, loving my new posh wellies and they went together great with my bright yellow tights.


The morning before our day out, a man can to give us a quote on how much it would be to fix our boiler. 

He said he couldn't mend it and we need a new boiler putting in. 

Asking how much it would cost to fit one he said 'I will pop down later with a quote'. 

Nearly a week later still no quote...

Makes me wonder~Do people ever keep their word? Who can you trust? Do people care when you have a family to keep warm and clean? Do people want work?

They have forecast -4 degrees weather this week, hopefully not or I will be walking around the house in these boots to keep warm. 

Fingers crossed we find someone decent this week, who can help..


What I Wore~

Dress ~ Primark

Cape ~ Primark

Handbag ~ Primark

Posh Wellies ~ C/o Lotus Shoes

New Hairstyle...


You know when you go to the hairdressers wanting one thing then come out with another? Last Friday I decided I needed an nice haircut and colour. Chocolate brown shade, nice for Autumn!! 

I though... As I had not had a skin test for over 6 months she could not do a colour...

London Street Style...


We are often hoping onto a train down to London for a night away, whenever we get the chance. Lots of walking, eatting and taking photos means comfy clothes and walk-able shoes. What shoes could be better to walk the walk in other than Converse!?! 8-12 miles of walking around streets, park and shops, we clocked up on this beautiful day. Mini me  My daughter takes after me with the love of taking photos too. She can take a great selfie!! and gets very mad if we try to hurry her up and a photo does not turn out...
