Dreaming

Jumper by Kenzo; Skirt by Zara; Shoes by Zara; Sunglasses by Ray Ban

I just love the colour of this Kenzo jumper. It makes me dream of holidays and places far away, while reminding me that I am off to the Dominican Republic in March and seriously need to work on my bikini body! How perfect are these Ray Bans for that occasion? Obsessed.

Little Black Dress

Dress c/o French Connection; Bag by Alexander McQueen; Shoes by ALDO; Belt by Zara

A girl can't go wrong with an LBD, especially one with a lace detailed back which means no bra (cheeky!). We all have this wardrobe staple but over the years I seem to tire of the ones sadly hanging in my closet in search of something new and different - that's when I stumbled upon French Connection's version and I was sold. With it's lace see-through back, delicate lace sleeves (perfect if you are conscious of your arms) and comfortable cotton fabric it's a real winner.

We have reach a little milestone today and I just wanted to wish my partner in crime, best friend, rock and love of my life a HAPPY 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY.

Mean Business

Top by Theory; Waistcoat c/o M&S; Skirt by New Look; Shoes c/o Nelly; Bag by Saint Laurent; Sunglasses by Ray Ban


I have decided that I want 2015 to be a year of new adventures, opportunities and FUN. After a pretty turbulent couple of years I have realised what is important to me and that's being happy and having fun. Though 2015 isn't far away, I am already going on a new adventure mid-September when I leave my current job to start a new one closer to home. I am really excited about the change and looking forward to what it brings. I mean business.

Workout Routine

Hold for 30 seconds - repeat twice

This has to be my most requested post, so without further a due here is my work-out routine. If I am perfectly honest, I both hate and love exercise but this small work-out routine is something I try and do everyday either in the morning or evening. This is a purely strength based workout routine, but I would do this with some cardio (cross-trainer, spin class or run) 3 times a week to keep up your fitness. Sit-ups or stomach exercises are by far my favourite and what I find the easiest to do. What does your exercise routine look like?

Raise your leg and  bring it back down without touching the ground - 3 reps of 10
Hold a 3kg weight at arm's length and reach up so your back is at an angle - 3 reps of 10
3 reps of 10 with a 3kg weight for each of my arms
With a 3kg weight in each hand, extend one of your legs as far as you can and lunge - 3 reps of 10 (each leg)

School's Out

Dress worn as Skirt by Zara; Top by H&M; Trainers + Socks by Nike

Sport-chic has to be up there with some of my favourite trends. For a girl who works in fashion and spends almost all her working week in her Louboutins, having the chance to wear trainers all weekend is heavenly - and trainers need not mean tom-boy (though I have no problem with that, being a self-confessed tom-boy myself) it is finally acceptable to wear a leather skirt and trainers. First they laugh, then they copy.

Gym Bunny

Trainers, Sports Bra & Socks by Nike, Headphones c/o Monster

I have had a love affair with exercise since I was about 6 when I took part in my first sports day in school and I won a race. Fast forward 10 years and I had taken part in District Sports for my county 7 years in a row competing in events including; 100m, high-jump, hurdles and long-jump, gaining 6 medals. I was by no means going to be the next Jessica Enis, but I really enjoyed how I felt after winning a competition but hated that tight feeling in your chest when you've over done it. I think most of us have a love affair with exercise and even after I finished competing I have found ways to stay fit and go to the gym every week. 

Exercise is important for the mind, body and soul.
