Sports Day

Jacket by Levis; Bag by Ralph Lauren; Shoes by Creative Recreation; Hat by Converse

After a busy week at work it's all about relaxing and unwinding at the weekend, this can be reflected in what you decide to wear too. Last Sunday we went out to visit family back home in East Sussex and there was no need to dress up.

I went all black with my long tee, chinos, trainers and snapback (as I couldn't be bothered to do my hair), layering the outfit with my Levis's denim jacket which tied together the casual sporty look.

An easy effortless look for the weekend!

That Jacket...

Jacket by H&M; Top by Theory; Culottes by French Connection; Shoes by Christian Louboutin; Bag by Marc Jacobs

This is seriously a jacket of dreams. You know when you set eyes on something, cannot stop thinking about it, don't buy it, then weeks later rediscover it in the sale at half price. It was magical! This was actually my NYE outfit, but after downing two glasses of prosecco before leaving the house, I had no time to shoot it before. It's the kind of jacket I never want to take off, and am still debating in my head if it's work appropriate... too much?

Breath of fresh air

Shirt by ASOS; Jumper by French Connection; Jeans by Zara; Shoes by Primark; Necklace by Zara; Bag by Saint Laurent

It has been 2 weeks since I embarked on my new healthy living lifestyle (brought on by the realisation I only had 2 months to get in shape for my holiday). I have been going to the gym and working out at home 4-5 times a week, drinking whey protein after exercise and eating a clean diet of chicken, fish, fruit, nuts and vegetables. I must admit I am still craving a cake or two, but I have never felt better in myself. I am less tired, full of energy, not bloated, and the problem areas I have always struggled with are finally pissing off one tiny step at a time! Even in just 2 mere weeks I have seen a huge difference and am excited to see the full results in 7 weeks time. So be aware my social media accouts will be full of food, protein and exercise selfie's in between outfit posts :)

New Year, New Us...

New Year, New Us...

Nothing like starting 2015 with a post of me styling my new favourite brand Thomas Codd London in this signature tartan shirt; from the colours, fit, fabirc and quality this shirt is the one to have. Teaming it with my black chinos, black coat and brown brogues it can be worn for any occasion from January sales shop to an evening meal with friends.

Looking forward to the year ahead and more blogging :)

2015 let's go...

Coat by Topshop; Top & Jeans by Zara; Shoes by ASOS

Well that's the end of yet another year. 2014 was definitely a mixed bag, filled with more [heartache] losing my beloved nan, [happiness] buying my first home with the love of my life, [excitement] with us both starting new jobs and lastly, a whole lot of [love], [laughter], [tears] and [joy]. As one door opens, another closes and I am ready to close the door on 2014, and open the door to 2015 with huge arms ready to take on whatever it throws at me!

This will be the year we spend more time on our blog, our fitness and our careers. 
We are ready for you!!

Amsterdam / Hen-Do

I was lucky enough to escape to Amsterdam for the weekend at the end of November for my friend's hen do, it was short but bitterly (literally, brrr) sweet! I havent visited Holland in at least 10 years but it was as though I never left. Though unbelievably cold, it was still as beautiful a city as I remember and the Heineken experience was the best thing imaginable - for a girl who loves beer. We finished the weekend off with a canal boat trip, a red light district tour and a night out dancing until 3am with the craziest dutch people in Holland! Amsterdam, you really know how to party, until next time...

Foodie Festival

I was lucky enough to attend the Foodie Festival on Brick Lane at the end of November, and for a big foodie like myself it was a dream. If I wasn't in the Christmas spirit already, then I certainly was after this. Mince pie filled stalls, mulled wine tents and endless artisan baker/food stalls to fill your belly! I came away with some goodies which I will be posting over Christmas, including using my 'Wild at Heart' Mincemeat to make some very unique 'mince pies'...
