Out To Lunch...

Don't you find it weird when you phone does this?

I did not even take these pictures on my phone!!

Spooky ...


Runs around a little...

Then get use to it!

Yesterday I met my husband in Nottingham after he finished work for some lunch.

It was lovely.

I was going to wear my Christmas jumper but too early?

With the sun was shining brightly I though I may be to warm?

So opted for a dress. 

Being a nice sunny day I got my favourite Irregular Choice shoes out to wear.

We went to one of our favourite all you can eat buffet restaurants, May sum.

Filled up with lots of yummy food and treats and the chocolate fountain!

Our son pop over from university to join us too, which was great.

Are you eating enough? you look pale! are you getting enough rest? drinking enough water?

Ha, some of the quick fire questions he got asked!

What I wore-

Dress ~ Lands End
Long sleeve T-shirt ~ Primark
Tights ~ Primark
Shoes ~ Irregular Choice
Jewellery ~ Carboot sale

University closes on Friday, so it will be great to have my son home for Christmas, I hear he has lots of bags full of washing for me too!!

  • Pumps ~ Primark

Lots of walking again today as its still the children's holiday here. I noticed lots of children go back this week but mine still have this week off as they were late breaking up for their holiday.My soon to be 10 year old son fancies a nice all you can eat restaurant as one of his treats the day before his birthday, so over the next few days all we will be doing is eating lots of tasty food and eating lots of yummy cakes :)

Next week I may well need a bigger dress size!!12 days to go before my marathon, eek panic is starting to set in!!

If shoes grow on trees, I'm ordering a nice new red pair....

Charity Shopping and Runstreak latest....

Yeh the snow has gone but boo it's been replaced with cold and wind! Not feeling the love for running yesterday I woke up with a headache and felt poorly. I decided to swap my run for a shopping trip ( but still ran later). Boy did I feel loads better afterwards.

 Not that I brought to much 2 lovely jackets from the charity shop, some bun cases, baking bit, heart trays, bake wear and a heart plate from my favourite bargain shop. Think I'm addicted to buying baking things more than shoes now. 

Cardi - Sports world
Top - Kiss collection
Jeans - Primark
Boots - F& F Tesco

My jackets I got from the charity shops, thinking of changing the buttons on the polka dot on and fancying it up somehow...

Been feeling tired, run down and lack of inspiration for running over the last few days. Think it the cold, wind and start of a cold. I didn't manage my long run this weekend, I have still been running ever day!!

Friday 6 miles run

Saturday 4 miles run

Sunday 4 miles run

Monday 5 miles running

Tuesday 6 miles running 

Days ran this year 29/29 #runstreak #Londonmarathon

What I Wore : Snow Week!!....

Trying to do more outfit posts again as I've not manged any for a while and so got out of doing them. This week we have had loads of snow so I'm trying to get away from throwing my jogging pant on. With going to the gym more since the children are back at school its hard work getting away from the gym wear. It's so much warmer wearing jogging pants and sweat shirts especially when its cold icy and snowing outside!!

I love this Jacket I got a few months ago from Primark it looks so stylish, really good quality and keeps you toasty and warm. First time I've brought a navy coat and it goes with more thing than I first expected ...

T-shirt - Primark few years ago
Jeans- Matalan
Boots - Barratts

One thing that as been keeping me warm at night before bed time is my onsie. I have gave a few people a laugh and a few people a frown posting my picture in  the Rock up in red for the British Heart Foundation competition. So though I would share my picture here, for the fun and hopefully make you all laugh  :)

Onesie- Primark

Meanwhile there has been lots of snow here, so snow boots a must...

 Lots of sledging...

And lots of snowballing...

Yesterday was hard work finding time for exercise as the children had a snow day off school. I manage a run to the gym and back 3 miles in the morning, half hour spinning class and a 3 miles run on the treadmill in the evening. Today they were all back to school so I did a hours spinning and a 3 miles run on the treadmill, hoping to snow don't hang around to long as I've got a marathon to train up for...

Jackie Brazil Hot Indiana Jones Necklace Review...

At the minute I am loving the colour hot pink,just lately I have started changing all my accessories,scarfs and shoes !! Also my nails and my trademark red lipsticks has been set aside (for the moment)and bright pinks are strongly becoming my favourite shades .This colour is just so cheerful and always brightens up a dull,windy or rainy day...

A few days ago I was contacted by the pr for FindJewellery.co.uk to see if I would like to review a piece of their Jackie Brazil Indiana range and I was delighted to see this hot pink necklace it caught my eye straight away.I just knew I had to review this piece of the collection.

About the Jackie Brazil Hot Pink Indiana Jones Necklace

This Jackie Brazil Necklace from the Indiana Jones range has a hot pink colour. No two beads made by this designer are the same so your necklace will be completely unique. The necklace is made from an assortment of different shaped and sized beads, some are glittery, some have blacks, purples and all shades of bright pink within them. The shocking pink colour makes this a vibrant piece of Brazillian designed jewellery.

What I think to the Jackie Brazil necklace

I don't usually wear statement necklaces but since this piece had been delivered I can't stop looking at it and trying it on.I keep planning nights out and what I will be wearing with it,I love this necklace it's such a beautiful piece of jewellery to own and I am so glad I got to review it.My daughter keeps asking if she can have a look at it we both like looking at the beads as each one is different.She keeps telling me to look after it (someone already has her eye on it!!)

This necklace is RRP £59.95 and is priced at £37.00

About this post-I got sent this necklace for this review all thoughts in this post are my own honest opinion and I was not paid for this post

What I Wore Wednesday: Out Again..

Dress Primark
With all this lovely weather we've been having it's made me very tired after running and a few time this week I've fallen to sleep...

On Saturday after my sleep we manage to get a few hours to ourselves ( again!!) and go out for a drink...

After a few drinks I needed some chocolate cake (the 8 and a half mile run that morning really took it out of me )

After a few drinks...

After 5 drinks we walked home with a bag of chips whilst it was still light enough... 

Not much of a stop out nowdays am I...
