As my knee’s healing and I’m back at work I’ve been thinking of going for the yoga session we’re offered at work. The rate is really good and I think it might be good exercise for the knee, but have to double check with my physio therapist and doctor first. Hopefully I will be at it after the Easter holidays. Then I’ll just need to get some new yoga gear My favourite all time exercise clothes shop is ‘Sweaty Betty’ and they’ve got some amazing yoga clothes. These are on my wish list at the moment;
Have spent the morning and most of the afternoon to re-organise and clear out my wardrobe. Not sure if I’ve managed a good clear-out, as I’m really bad at throwing things away. But my wordrobe is now much more organised! At least 5 pieces of clothing are going to charity and 6 pieces are going in the bin.
So, I have this ‘Money Manager’ tool with my online banking account. It basically shows me a pie chart of how much I’ve spent on different categories. Usually I check it fairly regularly to make sure I am within my limits. But somehow this habit has become more of a none-habit and suddenly I realised I’ve over spent… Today when I checked my ‘Money Manager’ it showed me this pie chart:
Most of the ‘Clothing and Personal Care’ money had gone on shoes and clothes. Which is terrible. How can I spend more money on clothes and shoes for one than I spend on groceries for two!? So I’ve given myself a restraining order. I can’t spend more than £40/month on clothes and shoes for the next 6 months. I need to put myself back into financial shape! Time to exorcise the spending monster within me! Let’s see how I will deal with this one
Sorry about the blurred PhotoBooth picture once again! But I have no one to take good pictures of me. Maybe I need to hire someone to take pictures, just for the sake of this blog Anyway, here’s the outfit details; Top – H&M, Skirt – Custom Made (that’s a brand), Leggings – Åhléns (Swedish department store).
It’s meant to be the hottest day of the year so far today! 23˚C is predicted! Can’t wait to get out, shame I will be stuck in lectures at uni for the whole afternoon!
More like working 9 to midnight. Feels as if I’ve been working 24/7 the last few weeks and I am getting ever so stressed. Which is why I haven’t updated as much as I can here lately, even though the ideas are there and I feel that I have a lot that I want to write about! When I get time I will definitely write some more interesting posts here
Meanwhile we’ve got some snow last night and it is pretty cold. Not as cold as it is in other parts of Europe but cold enough. Realised that I needed some new boots as my feet kept getting really wet and really cold when I walked outside. Also saw that it’s like 10 times colder in Paris and as me and Rob are going there in less than a weeks time I really needed a pair of proper winter boots. So I went to get some. Good looking, stable good quality boots from Clarks. Me like.
People often talk about Victoria’s Secret, a US based underwear company for women. I have many times got the question whether there is a a Victoria’s Secret shop in London. There is not a Victoria’s Secret shop in London, there has been rumours about one opening soon, but this has not happened yet.
However, I would like to make you all aware of that there is something better in London. London-based Agent Provocateur in SoHo! Agent Provocateur makes sexy, yet comfortable underwear! It’s not just traditionally sexy, but sexy as in sexy not just for men but also something that you can feel elegant in without it being dressing up for a man. They have the most amazing cuts and designs, things you look at and think “That is not going to be very comfortable wearing” but try on and to your surprise it’s amazingly comfortable! You can wear it underneath clothes and it won’t show but still give a subtle va-va-voom about you.
Not to mention that the customer service is just brilliant! All the staff are dressed in pink “lab-like” coats and are extremely helpful with sizes, fittings, and anything else you would like to know. They pack your purchase into a nice box, put a beautiful ribbon on it and put it in an equally beautiful pink bag. And if you’re a little bit embarrassed and do not want anyone to see that you have just shopped for sexy underwear they ask you if you would like it in a plain plastic bag
