Day 21 'Hair-up'

Day 21 ‘Hair-up’ – I only usually wear it up for exercise or housework. I have no idea when it comes to hair. A simple ponytail is as good as it gets 😉 Wish I knew how to for Maisie’s sake more than my own. I can plait hers but would love to be able to do lots of fancy styles for her.

Day 22 ‘Scarf’ – Pretty scarf that my sister bought me for Christmas.

Day 23 'Monochrome' -

Day 23 ‘Monochrome’ – Only monochrome that I own. A top from Monsoon about 8 yrs ago. Never worn it, it’s a bit too tight lol – Was feeling awful when I took this picture, feeling so old!

Day 24 'Tight' -

Day 24 ‘Tight’ – I love knee high boots but often find them too #tight round my chunky calves!

Day 25 'London' -

Day 25 ‘London’ –  I just love London and love my Clinque London make up purse I’ve had a few years now.

Day 26 'Fresh' - Drinking lots of water and fresh lime juice at the moment. Get so bored with just water.

Day 10 - My oldest son bought me this silver locket back in 2008 and although it isn't vintage it could certainly pass for it. I love it and will treasure it always. He was only 11 at the time and chose it all by himself :)

Happy New Year – New Year New You

General Chit Chat/ nynystyleproject

Well I really didn’t expect to be away from the blog for quite this long but things have just been so lovely and hectic that I just haven’t had the time to go to my office and blog… but today a lovely pressie that I have bought myself arrived so this is making it much easier for me 😉

Those of you who follow this blog will probably know that I gave up smoking last year and I have been saving up the money that I would usually spend on cigarettes and treated myself to a fabulous Macbook Pro! *squeals with excitement*

My new baby 😉

Christmas was wonderful, we had some quality family time which was very much needed and I got a little spoilt… My oh surprised me with an iPhone 5s which I am just madly in love with! So I’m a proper little Apple fan at the moment 😉

Such a lucky girl :0)

The diet didn’t go so well over Christmas; I actually put 4.5lbs on and I have been a proper grumpy moo because of it… Today I got back in control and planned my food for the next week or so and I feel much much happier about it. Hoping I can get a couple of those pounds off by next Tuesday at least!

I’ve actually just started a new project on Instagram called New Year New You Style Project which I’m really enjoying. The hashtag is #NYNYstyleproject if you want to follow along. It was put together by two other bloggers @AnEssexWife and @ModernMummyUK. So far we have a list of prompts for January as you can see here…

I’m hoping to complete January and then if it continues for the rest of the year then I will try and do that also. I’m going to be sharing the photos on here too as it is a really good fit with my blog; I hope you won’t get too bored with me 😉

Day 1 ‘Brand New’ – I got 12 new Sensationail gel polish colours with my Christmas money! I’m so excited by this product, I had the starter set for Christmas and LOVE it 🙂

Day 2 ‘Green’ – Wearing my favourite green top 🙂

Day 3 'Dress' -

Day 3 ‘Dress’ – Hard to get a photo of how gorgeous this dress is… It’s so lovely and very flattering!

So that’s it from me for now… I’m really looking forward to 2014 and moving forward with my life and both of my blogs.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & New Year and wish you all the very best for 2014… May all your dreams come true xxx
