A new series: My weekly round up

Welcome to a new series on my blog, a weekly round up where I will give you a bit of an insight into my week, what I’ve been getting up to and hopefully you will get to know me a bit better.

At the moment we are getting into week 7 of a loft extension and after being without a roof for about 5 weeks things are finally moving and progressing pretty quickly. I knew having some building work would be stressful but didn’t realise it was going to be this stressful! I guess working full time and not being in the house during the day makes things more complicated.  You never know if the builders are around and you are not in to discuss any changes or issues.

I’m a finalist in Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Awards

I have some very exciting news! I’m a finalist in the prestigious Brilliance in Blogging Awards  in the Fashion & Beauty category. I’m absolutely delighted as Britmums is the UK’s largest and most influential network of Lifestyle bloggers and Social influencers so being a finalist is totally amazing.

Brilliance in blogging awards

In a world dominated by twenty something and thirty something bloggers I feel very proud that me, a mum of two in my late forties, has made it to the finalist list, especially in something I love so much as fashion and beauty.

The little white dress

I love wearing dresses in the summer.  Not only they are practical -on those 2 days of hot weather we have- but they also look very stylish. White seems to be the colour of this season, and who doesn’t love a little white dress? I’m always a bit worried about wearing white for many reasons, the main one being having young kids that like to clean their hands on me, and let’s face it, I’m a bit of a messy eater myself. However white looks great in the summer or on holiday with a bit of a tan.

Transitioning into autumn with a biker jacket

This is a funny time of the year isn’t it? Not warm enough to leave the house without a jacket but not cold enough to wear a coat. The same applies to shoes -sandals in October anyone? Too cold for them.  However it’s not cold enough to wear boots, especially if you are like me and your feet get hot too quickly. So yes, deciding what to wear at the moment is not an easy task.

The jumpsuit, my new favourite summer item

I am quite short, so finding the right length trousers or maxi dresses is always a challenge. Things like jumpsuits are usually out of the question for the same reason unless they are from a petite range, and let’s face it, petite ranges out there are not great, are they? Fear not, from time to time I find something that fits, something that I wouldn’t usually even give a second look in the shops but it actually looks really good on, like this jumpsuit from Monsoon. When I first spotted it I thought I’d try it on as it didn’t look too long. And to my surprise it fits just right, sitting above my ankle as it’s three quarter length.
