Hey lovelies I hope you enjoyed the shorter week! The weather here has been so good, on bank holiday Monday we went to the coast for a walk along the beach and met up with friends, it was fab!

Move

IMG 7115Ready to walk Finley to nursery then run!

  • Monday – walk around South Shields
  • Tuesday – 10 minutes yoga
  • Wednesday – 20 minute kettle bell workout via You Tube + 15 minute walk
  • Thursday – 20 minute run
  • Friday – 1 hour walk
  • Saturday – Rest
  • Sunday – walk or run

+ push up challenge – really feeling it in my chest and arms now!

A pretty decent week for being active! I’m also now decided on how to progress with the gym, I’ve decided to quit my membership and review things in the autumn. The fact that I’ve found a couple of local mama and baby workout options has made the decision for me really! 

Wear

Stripy blazerStripy blazer: New Look, baby blue basic top: ASOS, white vest: H&M, jeans: Red Herring, tan leather sandals: New Look, Gold necklaces: New Look

Ah spring is here! I was chuffed to be able to bust out the sandals and this light blazer that I bought a couple of months ago. I always feel a bit smarter in a blazer even if it’s a casual look like this. I also love the nipped in shape of blazers for my body shape.

    Waw, That’s amazing news! Well done on winning the Sanctuary competition xx it’s lovely to get such a boost of positivity! Your certainly getting back what your giving out with the law of attraction! Keep up with the positive vibes xx
    I enter a lot of competitions online and I must say I’ve been very lucky! From iPads to VIP tickets to watch west end shows, although the competitions I enter is just a case of inputting my details and not so much a talent edge x
    I love reading your down to earth posts and how you really do put an holistic approach to your lifestyle keeping it all balanced. Very inspiring
