You Caught me Smiling...

25 August 2015

Just thought I'll spread a little sunshine on this horrendous day!


It's the little things that always manage to make me smile.

Like a smiley face at the end of a client email :)

Watching my son sleeping

When the Mr comes home with flowers for no reason at all but because he loves me

Sleeping in on a Sunday morning

When someone I know gets engaged or gets pregnant

My mum's laugh

As humans we always dwell on the negative parts of our day, but there are times when I'm having a shitty day and I think about those little things that made me smile at that particular time... and at that moment I smile again.

These Hot Days

23 August 2015

Absolutely loving that it's hwaaat right now!
I know it's only for a short time but it's only right that we get the most of it.

So on Friday when I accidentally looked at the weather forecast and saw that it was an appealing 25/26 degrees I had to get out of the house. And having the luxury of a massive park on your doorstep isn't too bad either!

Super casual look on the blog today due to the weather but thought I would add a little flavour with my sleeveless trench coat.

Right Now
Laying it bed... It's Sunday... It's only right!

This Week
Has been great! Even though I haven't done fuck all it's just nice switching off.

Looking Forward To
Another week off work. The first week has gone too fast!
I was planning on doing all of Cion's secondary prep last week but I was just happy to knowing that I was free that I let the week get away from me!
This week we are in full secondary school mode.
I'm looking forward to getting his new school uniform, school supplies and getting organised for his first day!

A few things...

Hiya! How you doing?
It's been far too long right?!
I've missed you!

The Blog
It seems like these posts are coming far and few between and it's slightly disheartening. I love Virgos and Kisses but if I'm being really honest I'm starting to loose my passion for blogging.
I honestly don't know what it is because this blog has helped me through a lot and starting VK when I didn't really have a clue where I was heading made me feel like I was doing something worth while. But now...  I feel like the blogging bug its slowly leaving me. I still love my clothes lord knows that will never change and a camera couldn't pass me without wanting to take a good ole' selfie or full frame OOTD but it's just not the same...
I am hoping to get my mojo back, so what I'm really asking is that bare with me a little while longer :)

I'm on Annual Leave!
I'm currently off work for two weeks. This first week has gone way to fast and I haven't done anything but go to the gym, visit family and friends and lay around the house. It's been great spending time with Cion though, even though he doesn't see me as cool any more *sad face*. But next week I am determined to add some action packed activities to our week.
This has been the first time in 3 years that I've had the summer holidays off with Cion. Sadly for me, Cion is off to secondary school in 2 weeks, which is why I wanted this time to help him through the transition so it was really important I get this time off work.  

My Fitness Weight-loss/Fitness Journey
Myself and the Mani have been on the 90sss challenge by the Body Coach for the past 2/3 weeks. I'll be 100 with you all... I've had a few cheat moments - I say cheat moments because I haven't taken out the whole day to cheat I've just had a little cheeky snack or cheeky meal. But with saying that I've been fully committed to the exercise part. Mani and I recently joined a new gym closer to home and it's perfect! It has all the classes I love and what's even better is that I can do them in the morning before work. One of my favourite classes at the moment is Circuits on a Monday morning and Spinning on a Wednesday and Saturday afternoon. I am seriously in my element and even the Mr notices how much I enjoy going to the gym.
It's a long road to lean and trim but I'm slowly getting there!

The Outfit
After an amazing spinning class on Wednesday I felt like we (or me) needed a little treat-treat, not a naughty treat but something that wasn't in the 90sss recipe book. Mani, Cion and I headed to Islington's amazing Mediterranean restaurant Mem and Laz for a treat-treat, below is what I wore.

I bought this summer midi dress for 51st Festival a few weeks back - thought I'll share with you guys how I originally styled it

For dinner I wanted to add a little rock-ness to the dress so paired it with my white Vans and leather jacket.

Have you guys been missing my posts? I promise I'll be back regularly... that's if you'll have me :)
