Dress: Dunnes *** Bracelets: Forever 21 *** Socks: Primark *** Brouges: Primark

I feel like I start far too many blog entries with something along the lines of "I have been sick recently", but yes, I am sick again. I'm fairly sure I have the weakest immune system ever! Today I stocked up on vitamin supplements which will hopefully help get things back on track.

I usually don't like prints of animals (birds, dogs, etc.) but this dress really caught my eye. Dunnes are also selling high waisted shorts with the same print, I am tempted to pick them up next time i'm there. There current A/W collection is a little bit "blah" to me. Although its kind of nice to be able to walk through the store without seeing 10+ things that I want! I picked up the shoes in Primark a couple of weeks ago. I felt like I had struck gold when they were the last pair and just so happened to be my size and marked down on €5. After I got them home and removed the tags I realized they were "wide fit" and much too big on my feet! They aren't quite so bad with thick socks like pair i'm wearing today, though.

Today I decided to weigh myself and... I have gained over one stone (15lbs!) since around the time I went on holiday (mid June). I'm not too happy about that, but I knew I had gained weight and was avoiding the scales purposely/somewhat in denial. Tomorrow i'm going to start the 30 day shred once again. If anyone else wants to start and would like a "support buddy", feel free to tweet/email me. I found a download link on google for anyone who doesn't have it, however it only costs about €10 to buy the DVD!

xoxo

PS. Congrats to Binia who is the winner of the Petite Delights giveaway, you will receive an email shortly!

  2. i love your little ankle socks! i bought some similar to them recently, but i've only worn them once because I have man calves and hate getting them out!

    and i've put on 11lbs since like july too, BAD TIMES!!! Although i don't feel like i'd be good motivation for the 30 day shred, anything other than walking to the fridge bores me lmao! i've been a bit better since I've been back at college though because i can't constantly snack, so hopefully walking about campus will be enough :(!?!

  6. I love the dress. Definitely get the shorts, I got them a few weeks ago and have worn them loads. I didn't get the dress at the time and I'm kicking myself now cause my local store hasn't any in stock anymore. Your post has me wanting the dress even more :(
