Shoe of the week

There is something about the warmer weather that puts a much needed spring in my step.  I want to put away my berry tone  heels, store my boots on a shelf and plan some perfect pedicures.

These gorgeous Tabitha Simmons heels just sum up what hazy days, lighter evenings and not having to wear multiple layers is all about. Time to get those winter warmers ready to pack away!

Life in pictures - mid March

My 'gym' - I've taken up running and Blackpool seafront offers me a free space to run in the evenings
I realised that life is passing me by and sometimes its easy to forget to look up from the desk or the daily commute  to see what is happening in the world around me. So I am trying to take at least a picture a day. 
We've experienced all the seasons in the past few weeks, caught this seagull ice skating a few weeks ago
Retail therapy - purchased a new clutch bag from a new TK Maxx store that's opened near work 
re-discovered the joys of stationery with a box from YooHoo Mail
This boy...there are no words   

Sunday cocktails -  Strawberry and passionfruit mojito

Shoe of the week

I love using Pinterest to get ideas for our home improvements, planning outfits, drooling over cupcakes and discovering cocktails that I need to try.

With an trip to New York planned in the next few months, I'm using it to research ideas for outfits that are a combination of chic yet casual, perfect for a city break with a nod to style by adding a statement necklace to a t-shirt and jeans or a pop of colour.  My current colour of choice is yellow to add a bit of sunshine to my capsule holiday wardrobe.

These heels from Zara will give me that much-needed Carrie Bradshaw approach to my city style.
