Camera Shy


'
How was your weekend? Mine was exactly what I needed. Friday I went for a drink after work with my wonderful colleagues and then raced to meet my family for a meal with my Nan to celebrate her new apartment. Saturday started with a much-needed lie-in, and I spent the day finishing my book (Libra by Don Delillo), reading another whole book (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) and doing my two workouts (Couch to 5K and the 30 Day Shred), before going out to a family party on Saturday night. I've said it before but my family are absolutely bloody mint. My cousins in particular are such a laugh and I'm so lucky to be part of such a close family. Father's Day was spent, predictably, with my Dad, but doing our usual Father-Daughter Sunday things of food shopping and visiting family (despite having seen them the night before!), and then reading, cooking a big veggie chilli and watching Hairspray (one of my favourite films!). It's been so nice to have a relaxing weekend and catch up with my reading and really get going with my new workout routine.
dress- Yumi via USC
boots- London Rebel via New Look
leather jacket- Miss Selfridge
This was the outfit I wore to my cousin's going away party on Saturday. It was pretty casual so I seized an excuse to wear my new favourite dress- WITH CAMERAS ON IT! The minute I saw this dress I knew I had to have it. I just wish I could figure out a way to wear it to my photography class! In my head I wanted to wear this with a denim jacket and bare legs but typical British weather prevailed so I went for navy tights, nude boots and my beloved pink leather jacket. I've also been getting acquainted with Babyliss Pro Perfect Curl and it's been beautiful. I plan on doing a video to show it in use but I've never done a video blog before so I'm a bit nervous!
I've had a really great, but intense day at work so I'm ready for my fruit tea and curling up with a book. I've just started reading Middlesex Jeffrey Eugenides and I can't put it down! With my new workout schedule, I can fit my run and DVD in straight after work so it's nice to have an evening to chill out after, without thinking "oh it's 9pm already! Time to do my workout!" 
Hope you've had a lovely day!

  2. The dress is so cute! I would love to see a video blog about the curler. I love it when bloggers add vlogs, it adds a whole new dimension (even if the video isn't as polished as writing might be, there's that authenticity to it!)
