Summer Sun??

I know we are a long way off from remotely even feeling warmth from our sun that shines here in the Northern Hemisphere, but I am heading off to sunnier shores this week! I am off to South Africa, so my quest to search for summer outfits is not redundant any longer, there is light at the end of my tunnel in exactly 4 days!

Here are a few treats I will be packing into my bag for various outings, namely: beach, farm chilling, pool, beach, braai (south african word for BBQ), pottering around in the garden,…Ok so nothing major other than sun lounging but I’m allowed to get overexcited after all this torrential rain we have been experiencing in the UK.

A New Week, A New Me

My husband and I have decided to do a detox, the eating and drinking started to get slightly out of hand so we just thought we should nip it in the bud.

Monday started off well, I resisted the urge for my morning coffee, I could practically smell the rich aroma of coffee as if it were following me around, instead I stuck to my lemon, honey and hot water and I added a cinnamon stick for extra flavour and it was absolutely delicious!

We did well with our eating, for lunch I had a vegetable soup and for dinner we had fish and salad…… I will keep you posted as the week goes by but I must say if you are trying to cut all sorts out of your diet and looking for inspiration when cooking, then you should head over to this website Deliciously Ella she has some amazing recipes and a good story behind her eating and why she eats like she does.

My inspiration for today’s outfit is gym gear, if I dont put it on first thing in the morning I just wont do it, but there’s nothing better than having really cool kit to wear, it definitely inspires me to get going 😉Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 14.38.10Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 14.31.39 Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 14.33.52Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 10.23.20
