Outfit: 70s Fringe and Nude Backpack

IMG_3332
Well, look at that! I'm back with a new outfit post! Long time no 'OOTD.' Put it down to Christmas chub and a busy second term back a uni.This outfit you are seeing here is what I wore to brunch with my family on Mothering Sunday. It's about as dark as my wardrobe goes and as close to 'monochrome' as you'll ever see me be! Ironically, as the weather is getting brighter I'm getting more comfortable in darker clothing, who knew.

Top: H&M
Skirt: Topshop
*Boots: Barratts
Jacket: Primark
Cardigan: H&M
*Bag: Therapy at House Of Fraser
I love this backpack, in fact, I think it's one of the first backpacks I've owned since my 'Roxy' backpack days in high school! This one is much more grown up- faux leather, a Kim K nude shade, gold hardware and the cute, boxy structure. So chic. It was a steal from House Of Fraser's 'Therapy' brand and clocked in at under £50, woop!

I'm slowly easing my way back into outfit posts, it's not easy with low self confidence, surrounded by beautiful bloggers, but I'm working on it!

Review: Pandora Bracelet X Joshua James Jewellery

Mother's Day is coming up for those of us in the UK, this Sunday to be exact. If you are looking for a last minute present which really shows your Mum how grateful for her you are, look no further than Joshua James Jewellery. They contacted me a while back asking if I would like to review an item from their website, and I was spoilt for choice. They have tonnes of brands, from large names like 'Thomas Sabo' and 'Pandora' to lesser known brands- something for every budget.

Long term readers of my blog will know I'm a sucker for Pandora jewellery, so I chose to review one of the new Pandora silver bangles. Much like the other Pandora bracelets, you can add beads to it, or keep it as is. It looks beautiful layered with my other Pandora bracelets (as seen below) or on its own- very chic and simple.

As with other Pandora items, the bangle came in the pretty white box, along with a Pandora bag- making it the perfect go to gift. It's a silver, classic, timeless piece, which I think jewellery lovers of any age would like and at just £55 it's a great price point for a high quality piece.

I won't be revealing here what MY Mum is getting from me, for Mothering Sunday, as I know she reads my blog! However, I would highly recommend Joshua James and Pandora for all the lovely Mums out there.

Diet Chef: Week 3 Updates

Image from Tumblr
I don't remember the last time I dared to wear a body con dress, but a few days ago, on a night out I went for it and you know what? It wasn't so bad. I haven't lost all the weight I want to, yet, nor am I happy with my body as it is, but I felt enough confidence to 'don the con' and in the words of Taylor Swift 'shake it off.' This new found confidence is thanks to Diet Chef and that's what this post is going to be about, my week 3 updates, progress and how I've found it.

Well, I'm down 8 and a half pounds, which is exciting and my friends have mentioned to me that they can see the weight loss on me, which is so encouraging. I've noticed changes in my body personally, too. The tops of my arms are less 'jiggly' and my stomach is flatter and doesn't bloat as much- winning! I'm also completely comfortable with the diet chef food portions now. My body doesn't ask for more and I don't get those late night cravings anymore, which were my main downfall. 

The weight loss has slowed down, but I had been expecting this, as you always tend to lose more at the start of your diet. I'm at the stage of losing about 2lbs or so a week, which is a nice, healthy amount. Every meal I eat, I feel satisfaction that I've stuck at this for 3 weeks. Watching my pile of Diet Chef foods depleat is exciting and also a little bit worrying. I know that with Diet Chef, my three meals a day are sorted for me... There is no chance of overeating or binging and I don't have to worry about making healthy choices. Diet Chef has become a safety blanket I'm not quite reading to give up, yet!

Next week is the end of my month trial of Diet Chef and it will also be the week I finally reveal my 'before' and 'after' shots- eek! Stay tuned!
