Back to Work Without a Bump!

Back to Work Without a Bump!

From the very beginning I knew I was going to put on weight during my pregnancy and I knew that I wasn't going to be one of those pseudo-celeb mums who snap back into shape within a week of giving birth - although I did harbour the dream that breastfeeding would help the extra weight to 'melt off' -  it didn't. What I perhaps didn't realise was the effect pregnancy would have on my body in addition to the extra pounds and stretch marks.

Paris - Part Trois

on Monday, 17 March 2014. Posted in Lifestyle, Travel

Disneyland!

I had originally intended to cover my entire Paris trip in one post, but somehow it’s spilled over into three. Apologies if you’re bored to death of my ramblings, be assured that this is the final post and normal service will resume shortly.

The last two days in Paris were actually the two I was looking forward to the most. On the Wednesday morning Darren and I had booked a tour of Versailles for everyone as their joint birthday gift - beginning in January all four have their birthdays by the beginning of February, which makes thinking of gifts quite a challenge. This year we were able to kill all four birds with one proverbial stone by paying for a private tour of the Palace of Versailles. I should clarify, that when I use the word ‘private’, I mean it was just the six of us on the tour, not that we had palace to ourselves - Kim Kardashian I am not.

Purely Monochrome

Lipsy - Embellished Shift Dress

Bold prints and bright colours; two common features of my wardrobe and subsequently the majority of my outfits. It’s very rare for me to choose an outfit with no colour at all, but I felt that the simple cut of this Lipsy dress along with the black bead embellishment was the perfect base for a purely monochrome ensemble.

How I Wore... A Leather Biker Jacket

Whistles Leather Biker Jacket

Ever since I saw Briony (A Girl, A Style) wearing hers, I've wanted to own a Whistles leather jacket. At £295 they’re certainly not cheap, but they are an investment piece and the quality is second to none. I finally got my hands on one when we visited Chester a few weeks ago. We stumbled across the store by chance and since it had only been open a month, I decided it must be a sign.

Not Restrained, Just Limited

I’m a fad addict. No, I’m not getting confused with the vernacular alternative for cigarette; I simply mean I go through shopping fads – like many women I imagine. Earlier in the year it was Zara, prior to that it was all about Topshop and during the sales, I’m obsessed with French Connection.

My current fad is slightly different; gone is the needy desire to own an item from every different trend regardless of fit or style, instead I choose pieces that I think suit me and my body shape. This recent epiphany has led me back to one of my childhood shopping haunts, namely, Marks & Spencer.
