Outfit Post: Homecoming

Happy Saturday everyone!

I'm back at my parents' house for a week, dogsitting, and am making the most of having a beautiful garden again. Sometimes my little yard just doesn't quite cut it. Sorry yard, you know I love you really.

So far this morning I've been for a 3km run (easing myself back into it after the Great Manchester Run), done Day Four of the 30 Day Shred, eaten scrambled eggs on toast and watched Saturday Kitchen. Perfect. The 30 Day Shred is... hard. The first time I did it I didn't really struggle too much but now some parts of it SLAY me. However, I've gone from not even being able to do a modified press-up, to being able to do a few  proper press-ups. In four days. I have high hopes for the rest of it! I'm absolutely loving my new found exercise regime and am just hoping that my motivation continues. I'm seeing some benefits already and that, coupled with eating properly and no alcohol for ten days, means that I'm feeling pretty damn amazing.

These socks are the new loves of my life. They don't photograph particularly well but they're lurex gold/bronze glittery type affairs. Basically, my perfect socks. I'm all about the gaudy. Pair them with leopard print tights and BAM! Ludicrous legs.

For summer I've decided to stop fighting against my hair and just let it do what it wants to do. And what it wants to do is be CURLY. Yes, this is what my hair looks like when left to dry naturally. Curly Sue. I used to absolutely loathe it but, now I've lost weight, I actually quite like it. It simply used to add to the gargantuan proportions of my face, you see. Even if I do bother to straighten it, it always finds a way to curl again within a matter of hours, so I shall stop wasting my time.

What are your plans for this glorious weekend?
