I wait here forever just to, to see you smile..

It's been one of those funny weekends where I seem to have come out of it more tired than I did when it started. That said, it's also been my first proper weekend to myself in a long while and I've rather enjoyed being able to do what I pleased and not have to factor in everyone else's feelings before I make a decision on anything. Refreshing!

Today I picked out my shoes and then looked for something to go with them. I ended up settling on this dress, which I've not worn for a while. I don't have a lot more to say about it, though - I recall posting about it when it first arrived so I've probably exhausted everything there is to say on the matter!

Instead, on to happier things. I've drawn the winners for my birthday giveaway. Thanks very much for entering if you did. The winners are as follows and I have emailed you all to ask for your addresses.

What did you get up to this weekend? I did some of my usual favourites; met up with my Nan for coffee and chatter; managed to fit in a spin class and a kettlebells class; baked a cake for a friend; grabbed some charity shop bargains and made two new dresses. I cut out a third, but haven't yet started putting it together. I'm hoping to find some time this week.

  1. I only managed to cook some nice food last night and put a load in the washing machine. I also ate cake whilst watching Veronica Mars, feeling so lazy right now haha. My friend is moving back home from uni in a couple of weeks and we have decided to go the gym together, two classes a week and 2 regular workouts. Looking forward to this :) xx

    1. That sounds like a great idea - I always find it harder to motivate myself; when I'm with a friend at the gym or in a class I find I can do things a lot better and it helps me to get into a routine as well.

    1. Thanks, lovely. I'm not often such a fan of spending time alone but it was good this weekend to get some of the things I *wanted* to do done.
