Wonderful Wednesdays

Welcome back to my Wednesday wish list feature. Here I will share some of my favourite finds from the last week and give you a little more of an insight into my kind of style.


Dress | Ring | Tee | Candle | Frame | Bag | Shoes | Dress

I'm thoroughly embracing autumn colours now. You can never have too much rust/mustard/leopard print, if you as me!

Some posts I've loved lately...

When Donna was (always is) a fashion expert for the day at Polkadot Pink
Anna's Birthday funday, and what fun it was at Sometimes Annie
Leona's life by Instagram at Oh! Leona

Hope you're all having a great week.

Autumn Wishlist

So apparently I forgot to publish my autumnal themed wishlist yesterday but better late than never right? I've been browsing the internet for some inspiration to make my flat a little cosier for the coming months, there will be more of that soon. Here are some things I've been drooling over lately...

Autumn WW

George at Asda have nailed it with their autumn/winter homeware this year, now if they could just hurry up and open in Exeter that would be great.

Some posts I've loved reading:

Donna is hosting a great give away with New Look, and is wearing some very cute things over at Polkadot Pink

Hope you're all having a great week.

Let's get Nakd

You may remember that a little while ago Anna and I started our own attempt at a DIY slimming world type thing, calling it #fudgeitfatclub. Well we've (sort of) been keeping at it, and after a long chat, and kick up the bum, have decided to really have a proper go at it from now. The days of slacking at the gym and going to the beach for a bbq are over and I'm actually pretty excited about it. 

I'd been looking at healthy snack options, as one of my main downfalls with diets is getting bored of the same thing, especially if it's a bit dull or bland, so it was perfect timing when an email dropped in my inbox from Natural Balance Foods, with the opportunity to try out some of the Nakd healthy cereal bars. Despite hearing a lot of hype about Nakd, and a few criticisms of their high sugar content, I hadn't taken the plunge yet so was really looking forward to trying them out for myself.

Pretty much all of the gym classes Anna and I go to start at 6pm, by which point lunch seems like a distant memory. As there's only an hour between finishing work and starting the class, there isn't really any time to eat so I tend to snack on an apple while I'm walking to the gym, although I've found this doesn't really fill me up/give me much of an energy boost (getting wind half way through the class doesn't count, especially if that class is yoga!!), queue Nakd! The healthy cereal bars come in a variety of flavours, my personal favourite being Cafe mocha - yum, are a great size and really give you a good energy boost, as you can see from these photos of Anna and I goofing around before our yoga class.

My original idea for this post was to head down to the playing fields with Anna and take some photos of us doing some yoga in front of the Devon Knows graffiti and then chill out with a can or two of Pimms/Cider. Well that plan went out of the window when we found a load of guys playing football there, so we shuffled to the far side of the park instead. It was a silly idea really, have you ever tried to do Yoga while keeping a straight face, holding the perfect pose and not falling over? Yeah, don't bother. From the moment a small dog literally bounced over to us, Anna screamed and I nearly had an accident from laughing, heading straight for the cans was a far more sensible idea. Here are a couple of the out takes...

Update - Since writing this I have also discovered that the Nakd bars are great for dealing with hanger, you know when you're hungry and angry, and I will be keeping a stash on my person to give to all of my friends when they're having an outburst of hanger.

* A big thank you to Natural Balance Foods for sending me a lovely bundle of bars to try out. I am definitely a Nakd convert.

Monthly Review | September

Well September, what a pretty great month you were. Another month of slacking in the gym, but having so much fun instead. In September I...

Went back to Dismaland and had a fun afternoon at Weston Super Mare.
Celebrated the launch of Bedboat Magazine with great friends.
Embraced the arrival of autumn by foraging in the woods.
Saw some beautiful sunsets.
Had some horrific messages on Tinder. 
Went to my first Shepton Mallet flea market, it was incredible. 
Had a lovely visit from the Griffiths. 

I can't wait to see what October has to offer, hopefully there will be a lot of foraging and more time spent at the gym.
