Blue

We had a sudden burst of sunlight and warmth and I dug out the one dress I'd been meaning to wear more. I predicted blue as my colour of the season, but I only managed to wear it a handful of times, so I had to wear it one more time.

I've still 100% convinced myself that there is going to be one more final push for summer. I think we only got a month or so of solid good weather. And I still need to wear so much from my summer wardrobe. Or at least I need someone to throw an end-of-summer party so I can wear that one dress I've been saving for a special occasion.

At least bags can be worn no matter what weather, and this Snugrugs one in particular served me well this weekend. Snugrugs focus on really cute and cosy looking sheepskin clothing and homeware, and also have a pretty impressive selection of handbags. 
This one is made from really soft leather and is really comfortable. I can fit all my essentials in it and is perfect for when I'm out and about for the day, not to mention is really stylish.

Working Out

I've been working out more and more recently, spending a couple of mornings a week at the gym. Now, I don't proclaim to like the gym like the average gym-goer (in fact I hate that it forces me out of bed an hour early) but it's one of those things I guess.

Yes - this is me with no make up on. I tend to work out in the mornings, and I have a selection of weights and a cross trainer in the house, so I don't really manage to wear any many up when I work out.

The thing that does encourage me to work out, however, is wearing cute clothes, such as this ensemble. My gym bag usually has several selections in it of work out gear, and I love mixing and matching. All I need now is another decent sports bra and I'm ready to up my game.

JD Sports is usually my go to for gym clothes. They have a huge selection from loads of sports brands and these pieces are great for working out in. They're comfortable and light weight, which is very important when you're building up a sweat. The top is particularly comfortable, with the mesh allowing some air in too.

What do you wear while working out?

The Language of Love with La Redoute

Now, I'm not the soppy type, so I'm not one to sit through a sad film or talk through emotions, but I knew I wanted to be involved with La Redoute's new Language of Love campaign.

Us Brits, in particular, are more reserved and often our words of love go unspoken, so I'm really inspired by their video where words of love are shared. LA Redoute want to bring the French way of sharing their Je t'aimes with us and want to bring in some romance. The video has a very attractive guy shares messages of love. It's very sweet, especially when a loved one comes out to really articulate their feelings.


As a follow up, I've been asked to share words of love to a loved one, or loved ones. And for me, after family, my friends top the list of people I love the most. As the years went on, my group of friends got smaller and now I have a few friends that mean the world to me, and I couldn't imagine my life without them. These are the girls I go to for a vent after a long day, and even randomly text half way through the day with a hilarious story.

I've had many a girls nights out (which have ended at ridiclous hours) and several sleepovers and holidays. It's nice to know that we have some amazing memories together, as well as being able to just sit in silence together. Particular memories of mine include when Cat and I went on holiday to Berlin together and we were so tired on the way back that we fell asleep mid conversation; all those times Rachel and I have had insane gossips over some delicious meals - we have our next meal planned already; all those blog events I've done with Kathryn and Danielle; and even knowing that I have such a good work friend in Christina that sometimes it doesn't even feel like I'm at work! And just too many memories with Marin about all kinds - need I mention the 'fun' we had last time we went to Paris together?

So just want to say, love you guys and can't wait to make some more memories!

I'm such a fan of La Redoute - they have such great pieces online and I always love checking out their collections. They help to deliver French fashion around the world and the English site has some great pieces.

Who do you want to say I Love You to?
