The Sunday Post: Valentine Fashback

It’s been a funny few weeks, after swearing I’d catch up on my life after the madness of January, February seems to be following suit. To balance things out I’ve taken some time out over fashion week – so I’ll be washing my favourite outfits instead of wearing them. That just made the past few days sound horribly uninteresting, but feel assured that junk food and The Good Wife are being consumed on mass.

Flashing back to last week, I had a little time off from posting over the valentines day weekend in the name of quality time with the boy. We exchanged gifts, walked the small furry one, continued with our extensive DIY list and giggled over pizza express dough balls. I was lucky enough to receive the Alex Monroe bumble bee in rose gold that I’ve been harping on about for almost a year now. It looks gold in photos but I assure you it’s the perfect rose gold colour and although it looks slightly bulky, its very comfortable, looks beautiful and is a joy to wear. There are no words to contain my glee so I’ll leave it at this before I start churning out “boy did good” and “lucky girl” phrases.

Before I sign off, you may or may not have noticed (I’m not sure which one I’d prefer) that Sunday posts have been a little irregular recently. I’ve been struggling a little lately to whip out my camera at the right points in the week, but I’m hoping to get back on track with 9am Sunday posts over the next few weeks. Blog posts during the week will now be going live at 1pm – I’m not an early bird and sometimes making changes/giving one last proof read is difficult when posts go live pre first cup of tea…
