A Perfect Summers Day Is When The Sun Is Shining:

A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. ~James Dent. What a beautiful quote, too? Haha, I hate lawn mowing!!

Thankfully it is a lovely day again today. I am not liking the flash floods, thunder and lightning!! No way of getting out on the bikes with the children yesterday!!

Saturday I did my first Park run 5k race in 5 months. Back on the running yeah. But my slowest time, noooo. 27 minutes 10. On good thing is I’ve set a goal to improve on. Will I ever get to 24 minutes?

“Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan.” Via~ Tom Landry

  • Firstly, Kaliko Dress Review. Last week I was introduced to Kaliko, a website I had never visited before. The website owned by Jacques Vert Group is a collection of Elegant British Brands. They say~ “We are passionate about confidently dressing the mature woman in the highest quality products that are proudly designed in Britain”. I was excited to be asked if I would like to try something from their website to wear for a special occasion. As we often go to London for weekends away, I wanted to pick an elegant dress that is comfortable to wear when travelling down by train. A dress that is stylish that does not crease up when travelling, figure flattering and most of all feels and looks great. Kaliko Dress Review.
  • Secondly, Cheeky Shoes Review: That Fit Through Your Letterbox. A new company selling fun shoes that fit through your letterbox!!  I love competitions and thought they sounded cool so entered hoping to win a pair. I didn’t win the shoes (Argg). A pleasant surprise then, when a few weeks later I got the chance to pick a pair to review for my blog. Cheeky Shoes Review: That Fit Through Your Letterbox.

Cheeky Shoes Review: So Many Great Colours:

  • Thirdly, Cheeky Shoes Review: So Many Great Colours. Here is what Cheeky Shoes have to say about the new shoes- How making in the UK makes for better, more affordable shoes. When you pop down the high street to buy some nice shoes, you may not realise it, but you’re actually getting a pretty bad deal. That’s because most of the price you pay, goes into the pockets of middlemen. Cheeky Shoes Review: So Many Great Colours.
