Favourite summer look

Summer, you remember that right? I think we had about a week of it here in the UK. Anyway blessed with a tan from my holiday to Jamaica I attended the wedding, well vow renewal of some old friends. 

I’d had my eye on a maxi dress for some time, just a matter of finding the right one. Then after spotting this beauty on twitter I had to get it from Simply Be


It was perfect, I mean look at it.

The prefect summer dress. Teamed with summer wedges and this gorgeous embroidered bag from New Look.

Wedding outfit complete


All about holding onto those last sunny days………. oh and burgers

Things to think about before the big I DO

So just over a year ago I said I DO, and we did it our way.

Over the past decade or so I have been to so many weddings and watched so many people plan their big day and you know what I learned………nothing.

I’m not being flip, I mean I learned nothing. See I always knew what i wanted. Just me and ‘him’. That’s it, my wedding was going to be like my marriage, about us.

Now I know other people like to share with loved ones, family, friends etc, but We always knew it would be just us, that and abroad!

There are lots of fayres, venues, and people to tell you what you should do. But screw that. What do you want?

Now saying that I did do somethings traditionally, I went wedding dress shopping, tried a million shoes on, googled hair styles etc.

As some one who values my time I wanted to get as much done together a possible, for my dress I visited a specialist plus size supplier and had the best day trying on about a dozen dresses. Eventually I found the perfect one, I just knew!

As for shoes I googled wedding shoe suppliers for wide feet (I’m all about that comfort). One place that came up was Elegant Steps, down I went and there was so much choice. Heels (of all heights), flats, wide fits, every colour (gold, silver, cream, rainbow) and style you could think of.

I went away with a few ideas, sadly I injured my leg a week or so after therefore heels were out and comfort was in, I went with converse in the end. Perfect.

That became the theme of my day, comfort!

I am reminded of all this after being asked to contribute to Elegant Steps recent piece on how to make your wedding less stressful. I guess I was just lucky, I had the least stressful day ever, we went to Vegas and was in and out in 7.5 mins! What more could you want!

Good luck if you’re planning your big day.

My main tip – remember what you want and do that!!

When in Vegas…..

Ok ok so I missed my Friday deadline. But I’m hoping you’ll forgive me

I have a good excuse, not a dog ate my homework excuse but genuine one. See I’m in a different time zone, well I’ve been in 3 different time zones over the past 6 days.

See now you remember im in America! Whoop

So what have I done this week I hear you ask( even if you haven’t I’m going to tell you anyway)

Well firstly I flew to fabulous Las Vegas

Did a little gambling, when in Rome and all that  
Saw some magic and met some magicians

  

Saw a big hole


Oh and flew in a helicopter to the bottom of said hole

  

Oh yeah and got married!


Much more detail to come on all the above with links and info

But right now I’m in New York, honeymoon and all that jazz

Have an awesome week

It’s good to talk….

So todays assignment, to take inspiration from a previously followed/ read post.

So here goes, and i hope i don’t lose any of you who might not relate to this one.

I am currently half way through a little project i like to lovingly call ‘Operation who am i?’ (not really but sounds good hey?!)

A few years ago i got a wake up call.

I have been getting bigger and bigger since a traumatic incident in my early 20’s, one i am not going to go into now, and i finally saw some pictures and realised i didn’t recognise myself.

this one in particlar

this is me and my mum, at her house on the day of my sisters wedding.

i cried, and still do when i see it. it’s hideous.

i had not long been to the hospital and found out that i couldn’t have children, well until i lost around 12 stone! to put that in perspective that is more than my sister weighs, i essentially needed to lose a whole person!

i was devastated, i had been kidding myself about my weight and size for such a long time but here it was for everyone, well mostly me to see.

how could i have been so blind?

this was 3 years ago. i have now lost around half what is needed. and that sadly was the easy part.

i have recently lost my motivation for why i started and seriously need to find my mojo.

have any one seen it?

but there is a bright side, because as you know i am not a negative Nelly.

i have lost half my goal, i am so much fitter and healthier then i was.

i am going to give myself sometime at the weekend to just sit down and map out the next part of my plan.

so there it is!

this blog is not purely focussed on my weightless journey because i am so much more then that but i will update at various milestones.

hope i didn’t lose to many of my new readers there
