Hello my lovelies! I’m back from an amazing few days in Iceland – it’s such a beautiful country, and the Icelandic people are so friendly, and to top it off, the northern lights were in full flow most nights! Mr Magpie took better photos than me, so I’m borrowing one of his: Anyway, on to the polish! Today I’m showing you Danglefoot Nail Polish I’m … Continue reading Danglefoot Nail Polish I’m Beach Ready
Last weekend I went Christmas shopping with my mother-in-law. While we were out we popped into Next, where I fell in love with a pair of bunny slippers. I usually ignore stuff like this, as with size 9 feet (I’m tall!) I’m often disappointed when they stop at a 7 or 8. But these were XL, which means they fit! They have cute little pompom … Continue reading Dupe alert! Next Big Apple & Barry M Sparkling Ruby (with bonus bunny slippers)
Hello my lovelies! You may or may not know, but October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and everyone is encouraged to wear pink to show support. Nearly 55,000 people a year are diagnosed with breast cancer, thankfully if caught early enough, 85% of those survive. So ladies, and gents, it’s vitally important to check those assets! Lumps are a common sign of breast cancer, but … Continue reading #wearitpink – Breast Cancer Awareness month
Whooo I finally get to make a progress post! Before I start though, I just have to share this. My friend posted it on Facebook last night just before weigh in and it made me snort out loud! Haha! This was so me over the summer! One step forwards, three steps back. Fingers crossed now though that I’m in a better place and moving forwards … Continue reading 4st lighter with Slimming World!
Good morning my lovelies! I’m back from holiday refreshed and raring to go. (This is a lie. I’m never raring to go at anything!) Over the past two weeks I have done so much exercise! I climbed a mountain (Merrick, in Galloway Country Park) which was a massive achievement for me, I walked to Britain’s most remote beach (Sandwood Bay, 4.5 miles from the nearest … Continue reading I’m Back!
I haven’t posted much recently on my weight loss progress, mostly because well, there hasn’t been any! This year, things had been fine, the weight was coming off, I was feeling better and more energetic, and everything was peachy. Then at the start of July I came down with the flu. I spent two weeks feeling crap, shovelling sugar into myself (cough sweets, cough medicine, … Continue reading The 13% club
Well.. I wasn’t looking forward to last nights weigh in. As I mentioned before, it was our anniversary on Monday, so we spent the weekend in Bakewell (which is lovely, by the way!). The food at the hotel was fantastic, but so not diet friendly! I tried to make healthy choices, but was foiled by cream in the scrambled eggs at breakfast, and butter all … Continue reading Weigh in result!
And the result is… 3lbs off! Very happy with this, I’m now at 3st 6lb lost in total (48lbs) and just 1lb away from my next bit of bling 🙌 This week will be more challenging. On Monday, it will be 21 years since a tall scrawny geeky graduate finally plucked up the courage to ask the shy redhead year-out student in the office for … Continue reading Weigh in result!
So this happened at weigh in last night… which was a lovely surprise! I lost 3lbs this week, which I am very happy about, bringing my total up to 3st 3lbs. Pushing on to that next half stone award now! I haven’t been blogging much lately, problems with WordPress (fingers crossed but I think I’ve fixed that) plus a huge lack of time meant that … Continue reading Slimmer of the week!
Hello lovelies! I’m still here, I’ve been having a few technical problems which make blogging difficult – the new update to the WordPress app hangs every time I try to add a photo, and using the wordpress website to write posts on a tablet is a ballache. Still trying to find a way around it – I have a few options – move to Blogger, … Continue reading Today is a good day!
