apologies for my hair in these photos, that is what happens when i go to sleep on it without drying it first :S
so another pair of new shoes (by which i mean a pair which have lived in their box on top of one of the wardrobes for at least a year and been neglected, until now)..i have no idea what number pair these are..i have 11 days off from friday, and plan on making a list of things to do if i can't sort out a few days away, so maybe one of the things on the list should be "count shoes - make a shoe inventory"..but i think that would take a long time..
anyway - the shoes are from office, and were a gift from my sister for my birthday last year..i love nautical stripes, and the kitschy hearts on the fronts make me smile..i was inspired to dig these out after seeing a picture on llara's blog a little while ago, which made me think i had a pair which i didn't think i had ever worn! they are really nice and comfy, and a lovely height!
as for the dress, i went to matalan on my way home the other day and discovered that they had a 20% off offer on all dresses and jumpsuits, and managed to whittle down the armful of beautiful be beau dresses to just two..this is the first of them, and i do rather like it - i am such a big fan of stripes and florals together, and i loved the pretty coral-red tones in the print..i think it's a lovely fit, and at £20 in the offer, it was a total bargain! did anyone else take advantage of the 20% off event at matalan? i think they are already coming up with some lovely pieces this season, i had seen soeme things i liked on the website and was really pleasantly suprised to see so many of them in my local store, as it's a relatively small one..
in other news, i am pleased that i managed to motivate myself enough to go for a run last night, although i didn't feel well at all by the end of it..i'm not very happy with the way my fitness / weightloss is going, i seemed to get off to a good start and then it seems to have slowed down again, but still..i'm just scared of putting all the weight i had managed to lose back on again :( not that it was a huge amount, but a start nonetheless..
also, i am currently without a car, i am having major issues with the garage who are being stupid about the warranty and what it does / does not cover in terms of a manufacturer's fault on the windscreen..but after a lot of time reading t+c's and putting together my complaint documentation, it looks as though it will be fixed tomorrow..yay! i do feel strangeley lost without it..
