Healthy Start

My post pregnancy bod is starting to get me down so I am making a conscious effort to try and eat healthier and do more.

I was so scared when I fell pregnant that I would put on all the weight that I tried so hard to lose back in 2012-2013.  I had just go to the weight I wanted and was fitting into Zara clothes and top shop clothes for the first time ever which has really boosted my confidence.  At the end of the pregnancy my fears were realised as I weighed in at the biggest I have ever been.

It was hard work before and I was training for the marathon so that helped with the motivation, but this time around I know I can do it, and I know how the end goal feels!

I have signed up to some new mum baby classes up at the children's centre which started this week and have tried some new healthier food combinations.

Today I tried bagel with hummus, avacado and black pepper! Soooo tasty :!

Birthday Wish List

Candle - Juliette at Home

My 29th Birthday is fast approaching and I've been trying to think about what I might like.  I've spent the last 3 months in a baby daze and haven't had a chance to think much about myself.

I'm normally one for writing a huge birthday wish list but this year I've found it hard as with a baby and all the stuff they aquire I don't want to fill the house with more!

It would be nice to have an hour or 2 to spoil myself so having someone take Noah so I can get my hair or nails done would be brilliant.

Other than that here are some of the things that have made it onto my list this year....

Jacqueline Fossil Watch

Necklace - Zara

Converse All Star Oxford Trainers in Burgundy

Gorgeous Summer drink - St Germain Elderflower Liquor and Champagne

Blog Loving

I think my real passion for blogging came after finding Cupcakes and Cashmere a few years back and, in doing so, I finally found someone who really inspired me. 

I think the thing with Emily Schuman is, that although she is much skinnier and lives in beautiful California, she has very similar colouring and style likes as me.

When I started writing the blog I wanted a way to share everything that I do.  People often asked for recipes, or 'how to' of DIY bits and bobs, or commented on my outfits.

I wanted a platform where I could share all things cool, but also somewhere to have a quick ramble.

I get a bit depressed sometimes and I find it easy to forget how good I have things, and how much I do get up to.

I've been so inspired over the last couple of years and have found some fantastic blogs that I really relate to.
