Blooming lovely

Hello, petals!

I think I've just about managed to insert my flower-laden post into the Blogosphere before Spring is officially over. Better late than never, eh?

These snaps are the result of a Bank Holiday Monday trip to Upton Park. A chance for me to enjoy the sun (sorry about the pale pins), don a rather large hat and stroll amongst the beautiful flowers.

Although I don't have the classic photogenic streets of Chelsea or Kensington at my disposal like a lot of bloggers, I feel pretty lucky to be so close to several beautiful beaches, epic coastlines and more pretty green stuff than you could imagine. So, sorry Dorset for moaning about your lack of cityscapes - you're a bit fantastic really.

What I'm wearing...

Hat, dress and t-bars: New Look | Bag - ALDO 

Hope you enjoyed this floral filled post! I've got a busy week coming up  with my birthday on Tuesday and Paris on Friday - eep! See you soon guys! x

Life lately

Sorry guys - it's been a while!

The last few weeks have been a busy blur, but here's some things I need to catch you up on...


So, er, I started exercising. I'm as shocked as you are.

I stumbled across the Blogilates Beginner Calendar and after four days of aching and feeling like a complete pansy, I started to feel healthier, stronger and motivated. Don't get me wrong, I still spend at least 20% of the workout swearing - but at least I feel good afterwards.

There's still have a long way to go before I can consider myself healthy. My love for pizza cannot be easily quenched - and I don't think I'll ever get enthused over a salad. But hey, I'm getting there.

NB: The eagle-eyed among you might notice I'm not actually doing pilates in the snap. It's not the most photogenic form of exercise unless you're Ms Blogilates herself... but you get the idea.

Fussy pants

Remember the new food challenge I set myself in January? My goal was to try a new food each week and combat my severely limited taste palette. In other words - to stop being such a fussy eater.

Well, not to brag, but I'm currently bossing it. I've already tried 37 new foods - so I'm way ahead of schedule! Thanks so much to my chums for making me try coleslaw, apple chutney, seeds, fruits, green juices, chai lattes and all sorts of weird and wonderful things. And you know what? They weren't half bad.

If you have any suggestions for what I should try next, let me know in the comments.


Passport? Check. Tickets? Check. A suitcase of suitably stylish garms? ... I'm working on it.

In less than two weeks I'm heading to Paris with one of my best friends! I'm so very excited - and I'll be snapping and vlogging the whole time. We have an awful lot planned, but if you have any must-visit locations, do drop me a comment. Did you catch my photos from the last trip?

I promise I won't leave it so long to update my blog again - there's already some new posts in the pipeline! In the meantime, take a peek at my Instagram or Twitter x
