Here’s my weekend list-the things I did/ got up to and bought on the weekend!

A blow dry-the shot below was taken before I went on holiday and I’m hoping to book another blow dry this weekend or next week at the latest. My local salon is an Aveda salon and I literally leave feeling like I’ve got a new head, never mind hairstyle!

Ted Baker Neon Fluro Pink Professional Portfolio

Now that my son Oliver, 4 has started school and Alexander will soon start nursery, it was time for a new diary and organiser. I found this neon pink Ted Baker organiser that comes with a notepad so I bought a diary to fit in too. There’s also space for your mobile and notes, ideal for my busy life as a mum of two and full-time professional blogger!

The outside…

I’ve popped in this Busy Life Home Work Diary I fell in love with (the bird print is so pretty) and it fits perfectly inside!


The diet begins:

Annoyingly I weighed myself today to find I’ve gained 9 lbs over the summer holidays (knew all those ice creams would add up sooner or later) so I’ll be eating healthier and low (not no) carb again as I know that suits my body ( I have PCOS) and will be getting the treadmill up and erm, running!

Going to try this Thai dish of beef with vegetables enjoyed in Cannes a few months back!

I’m also going to spend Sunday if the weather allows enjoying a local park, we love the RHS Harlow Carr gardens in Harrogate so might head there!

    You look stunning as always! You reminded me I really need to get my hair cut! It’s been about 6 months!eek! I think the Thai food is a good bet, especially if you are going low carb…. yum neua or larb is ah-ma-zing- it’s spicy beef salad, although you can use any meat or fish! Here is a Thai lady who knows her stuff, her recipe is really good! …. my husband is Thai so I get to eat it a lot 🙂 Hope you had a great weekend! #thelist

    1. Your hair always looks so fabulous. ALWAYS. Eternal hair envy.
    2. Pink organiser = amazing. As a stationary addict I believe it’s my duty to now spend at least an hour browsing portfolios to get myself organised too.

    I love that shot of your awesome blowdry – it’s gorgeous! And the organiser looks fab. I’m trying to use my phone to organise myself but there’s nothing like putting pen to paper is there. Hope you have a lovely weekend x
