Yesterday was a great day. Sunny, warm and lots of ticks on the to-do list. Here's what I wore....
Grey Silky Blouse - Deja Vu, Lisburn Road
Coated jeans (look black but they're a dark dark navy) & Coat (on bed) - Mango AW14
Black boots - Clarks past season
Scarf - Zara AW14
Cross Body Bag (on bed) - Boden past season
A21 Pendant - see this post for details
After the school run, a grocery delivery and a quick whizz around the house making beds, I went over to a coffee shop on the Ormeau Road called Kaffe-O. My friend Olwyn bought me vouchers from the shop as a house warming present knowing I loved the mugs that are sold there.
And Belfast being the size it is, I bumped my friend Peter Love - Love Fitness NI...who inspired me to book a PT session and a gym viewing. Time to get into shape for summer.
Next up, I had a deep tissue massage with another friend - Kate Morrow from Harmony Holistic Healing. I've been having a session with Kate roughly every 6 weeks or so since late last year when I had residual sciatic pain that wouldn't shift, and I really feel the benefit of her treatments. I have her under strict instructions to give it some welly so it's pretty intense but relaxing too. Kate offers a wide range of treatments and is based at Core Physiotherapy at The Arches if you're local and feel the need for a chill-out session. She's the sort of girl who will put you at ease immediately and doesn't talk throughout the treatments....I know that's a bugbear of many a busy mum who just wants silence for that precious hour of pampering.
Quick whizz to Lidl in Castlereagh then to see if they had any of the new clothing range. The good news is that I struck gold - blog post to follow - and finally on to H&M for yet another return. Not having much luck there. That's 3 tops, a jacket and 2 pairs of jeans I've returned in the past 2 weeks.
Then the sofa search continued....my head is melted with sofas. I literally would buy anything after 3 weeks of going to every sofa shop in the vicinity of Belfast. I have 43 different sofas photographed on my phone and cannot see the woods for the trees so a strong cup of coffee was required once I got back to the house and bless them, the kids gave me 15 minutes to myself to flick through a few magazines that a friend had given me.
Love this quote from a Marie Claire interview with make-up artist Wendy Rowe...maybe the sofa isn't meant to be?? :O
