healthy eating and why it's awesome for me

22 May 2015

I've been incredibly lazy for the last month and a half. I've really slacked in my exercise routine as well as with food. It's really effected me mentally and physically so I've made the decision to get back into the routine I was in before we went to America. Last week I encouraged myself to exercise again and eat the meals I used to eat a lot then this week I've been cutting things out of my diet again. So no more crisps, no coffee, different milk, no snacking, no chocolate. That may seem a bit strict but I will not miss these things, none of them, and I'll be so much happier and healthier for doing it.


rose gold summer sandals

20 May 2015

Over the last week or so I've felt like summer is so far away what with the weather being really quite awful down here. With no real sign of things improving it hasn't stopped me from dreaming about footwear for the warmer weather that is set to come (hopefully) and in my dreams I may have ordered a couple of great looking pairs of shoes and sandals for summer. oops.. I know it's not hot and I'm sorry but I couldn't wait to share these with you, besides, there's nothing wrong with being prepared!


Tasting the new Yo!Sushi menu

17 May 2015

Myself and a friend recently attended a fab VIP evening at our local Yo! Sushi where we got to give some amazing new additions to their menu. I'm a massive fan of Yo! anyway, ever since I took part in a masterclass at the Plymouth restaurant late last year (You can see a zillion photos of the experience here.)

Topshop jumpers are the best, all of my favourite knitwear buys are from Topshop stores and this grey piece is the latest addition to my wardrobe.


#PlymouthBlogMeet at RumpusCosy

29 April 2015

Last week I attended the first ever Plymouth blogger meet up (to our knowledge) and it was fab. We talked, drank tea (and coffee), ate cake and photographed EVERYTHING. Seriously.

USA shopping haul

26 April 2015

The place we visit in Colorado doesn't have the usual suspects of American stores that are great to visit so whilst we fly into Denver and that has a Forever21 and a Sephora, out near where we stay in Vail it's an hours drive to Target and an outlet village.

I bought a few fashion pieces from the outlets as well as some much loved beauty bits from Target and the local City Market and thought I'd give you a breakdown of them including costs because it's so different out there!

how do you wear chinos?

25 April 2015

Serious question now, how do you wear chinos? I've liked the idea of them for so long but in reality I have no clue how to wear these tailored beige chinos. I really want to be able to wear them and wear them with confidence but right now I'm struggling with the most basic idea of it all. Maybe I'm just having an off few weeks? It is possible!

Help me please.. How do you wear your tailored trousers and/or chinos?
