Boho Vibes and Give away winner!

Hey lovely ladies, hope all is well this Friday!
I have had a super dooper productive day! See, i have been going through a right lazy bum phase where i don't feel like doing anything and generally just tired allll the time. On our anniversary the other day hubs and i got to chatting and we both agreed that we need to kick ourselves ad each other up the backsides and start doing more. Since then we have. Today i walked to the supermarket and back with Neo and a pram laden with food, then i have started the EPIC task of sorting my bedroom and all my clothes. So far i have 4 huge bags filled for charity and also a whole other pile for Ebaying. And d'you know what? It feels so good, i feel good having gotten rid of so many un-needed/wanted clothes, shoes, bags etc. Excessive amounts are just un-necessary. This hoarder may be changing her ways!! I'm still right in the middle of it so there's still more to go tomorrow but its good! I'm getting there. Once done we are treating ourselves to a nice new bed which is much deserved!
So life feels good right now..




 Maxi Dress: River Island
Hat: New Look
Necklace: Vintage

I really love maxi dresses/ skirts. They are just uber comfy and practical. Chuck on some wedges and a floppy hat and i am good to go. I like easy peasy outfits. 
Weather is forecast to change this weekend with cooler spells and showers so i'm glad i made the most of the nice weather whilst it was here!(knowing my luck that was probably our summer! British weather... so un-reliable, pfft!)

Enough chit chat, thank you all so much for entering my giveaway, I'm such a softy i truly wish i could give everyone a prize as i really truly appreciate you all coming to my little blog. So big virtual hugs to you all!
And the winner of the bag and scarf is:



I used Random generator gadget thingy but then lost the widget (yehhh i'm useless!)

Well you all have lovely weekends! do you have nice plans?

  3. I love the shoes especially. And the hat. And the dress... Lol. I don't suit hats - I'm do jealous of anyone who does!
    Sometimes a good kick up the backside is all we need - and de-cluttering is SO therapeutic, with the added bonus of feeling good from donating to charity :). I did a lot of decluttering last year, convinced I wouldn't fit in my clothes when Aiden arrived (semi true), but I did too much and I now have like, 3 outfits! Haha! Have a good weekend, I'm off to primark ;) xo

  7. Spring is the best season for getting rid of unwanted clothes and for sorting our closet out!
    You look great, a maxi dress paired with a floppy hat is just a perfect combination <3 and I adore your shoes.
