Since September is now in full swing (HOW is it mid-way through the month already?) I thought I would share a little bit of what’s in favour in my life at the moment. A few bits and bobs of the things that are making me smile and that are getting me through these busy family days. Things I can’t live without currently!
Something I am really trying to do more of is get back into fashion again. Sorry, I know I keep going ON about it!…but I just am loving everything clothes again. I am getting my style updates from blogs, Instagram and magazines. I bought Grazia this week and have loved reading it. Even though I spend a lot of time online I also like a flick through a magazine too. I am going to therefore make it a little mission to treat myself to more magazines.
I’ll be really honest here now – and it’s that I am feeling great with my body confidence at the moment. I have lost a little weight/toned up a bit from going to the gym regularly and Dave & I have been eating more healthy food. I’ve cut out cakes and biscuits from my day and even though the reduction in sugar has given me a few more headaches I actually feel much better overall. My clothes are fitting me better too and my tummy has definitely gone down a little. I’m feeling incredibly positive from the change.
Like I say, Dave has been getting into cooking a little more lately with the arrival of our HelloFresh boxes each week – and we’ve been getting into eating delicious meals again. Here (below) he has made us the ‘Chorizo Crusted Fish with Miniature Roasties’. YUM! It’s been so nice being cooked for too!
Fashion-wise the twins have been sent these utterly gorgeous clothes by Levi’s Kids – as per below. They are SO cute and trendy too! I cannot wait to see them wearing these pieces. In fact, I really want Lottie’s skirt in my size!
With the weather showing no signs of getting into full-on Autumn/Winter mode yet (I’m sitting here with the windows open and flip-flops on) I’m still all about the fake-tan. I have been kindly sent and am using the brilliant Cocoa Brown – as per below – which gives me a really instant bronzed effect. Not too streaky either and lasts for a few days.
I’ll be putting the bronzing gel on today because I’m off to London to the 2016 MAD blog awards, hosted by TOTS100, tomorrow (Friday). Not sure what I am wearing yet (eeeeeeeek) but hoping to wear a skirt or dress and get my legs out! I’m up for Best Lifestyle blog award which I don’t think I’ll win because the category is tough and has some of my favourite ever blogs in there…but it’s just nice to have got this far! I can’t wait to see all my blogging girls and have a really good night.
London here I come.
Love, Jess x
