Before I began loosing weight almost a year ago, I would do anything to hide my body shape. I was at my heaviest, I’d always size up and the thought of having any part of me on show would give me the worst slice of anxiety.
Now that I am reaching my end weight goal and being the toning up section begins, I’ve learnt how to dress my new body shape.
To my surprise, it has allowed me to feel so much better about the skin that I’m in.

To me, owning a Radley handbag is a piece of luxury, one in which I ought to save for and I can vividly remember being seventeen years old, standing in the Liverpool store, knowing that I’d earned enough money from my weekend pub job to treat myself.
Fast forward twelve years later and I’m still in love with the brand.
It was just over a month or so ago that the Mr and I were in Cheshire Oaks, with the exciting news of my new job in the air, I decided to treat myself to a new Radley bag – the one I’d had my eye on since Christmas.

I have been searching for a black trench coat for what feels like months.
I’ve wanted one that was the ideal length for a 5ft 3 girl like myself, one that was comfortable, not overly expensive and one that I would get a lot of wear out of as we draw closer towards the lighter days.
So you can imagine my excitement when I spotted one in Primark a few weeks ago.

I pride myself on finishing my Christmas shopping before December.
That way, I can spend a cosy Sunday watching The Holiday whilst wrapping up everyone’s presents with the fairy lights glistening in the background.
Cheshire Oaks has been a place in which I’ve been going to since I was a little girl; I’d be all wrapped up in my pram, being pushed in and out of the shops and now, it’s kinda cool that I’m still returning every few months but this time, I’m driving myself there.
Not a lot of people realise that beside Cheshire Oaks is another shopping park called Coliseum and this is home to lots of fantastic high street brands such as New Look, Debenhams, Sports Direct, Next, Superdrug and H&M.
Full Disclaimer: I was invited to do some Christmas shopping by the team at Coliseum with some vouchers in which they gifted me. In return, I am sharing this blog post with you all as well as a few Instagram Stories.

I have always been self conscious about my legs.
But with my current weight loss journey, I’ve finally got my confidence back in how I feel about them and more importantly, how they look in tights, skirts and jeans now.
I began searching for skirts to wear for work – not overly short, a little bit stylish and not making my purse cry out in agony.
So where did I go?
Primark, of course!

I am obsessed with pinafores.
The second Autumn strikes, I become obsessed with pinafores. Not only are They incredibly easy to wear during the transitional period between Summer and Autumn, but they’re comfortable and quite stylish.
One brand who I am a huge fan of is Red Herring. When I need a staple piece for my wardrobe, I usually head to New Look or to the corner of Debenhams where Red Herring are situated.
A solid 70% of my wardrobe is Red Herring and not only is the quality fantastic but the prices are really good in case you’re watching the pennies.

It is very rare that I throw an piece of clothing on before dashing out for an hour or so, but then again, I don’t exactly plan my outfits in advance unless it’s something special.
With that being said, I have found a particular new aspect of my wardrobe which is the best to wear when I’m heading out for dinner with the Mr or needing to grab a few food essentials from ASDA. It’s comfortable, it’s practical but most importantly..
IT HAS POCKETS.

I have had a strong love for linen trousers for a solid three years now.
I have three pairs – two from Primark and one from F&F Clothing (who have recently gone offline and are now in-store only so no links!).
Before we went to Crete, I purchased a pair of deep blue floral tile print beach linen trousers and I just can’t stop wearing them. Granted, we had an insane heat wave throughout June and July but linen trousers are perfect for those cooler days when denim shorts just aren’t an option.

Finding a pair of denim shorts is like finding a pair of jeans.
It takes months of searching, many hours of trying on, a few returns but at long last, you’ve found the best ones for you and your body.
New Look seem to be my favourite high street clothing store at the moment and I’m not even sorry because their slogan tees are the absolute best.
With Topshop providing me with the best jeans I’ve even owned, I turned to New Look in search of some new denim shorts at the beginning of May and I really did hit the jackpot with these.

I think these are the prettiest shoes I have ever worn.
New Look are my go-to, favourite high street shop for pretty much everything: slogan t-shirts, cute socks and since I can remember, I’ve loved their shoes especially their boots and sandals but this time, I decided to push the boat out a little bit and choose a pair of shoes which are quite out of my comfort zone.
