Calvin Klein Newness!

As part of fathers day celebrations last weekend, myself and my family decided to go on a trip out to have a look around and a bit to eat.

We chose to visit Gloucester Quays, with a wide range of shops and eateries as well as the historic docks.

After having a walk around the docks and a bite to eat at the always amazing Zizzi's we decided to do a bit of shopping, and i came across this beauty!!

Grey is kinda my colour - if it comes in grey, ill buy it in grey. So when i spotted this Grey Calvin Klein bag with amazing silver hardware i couldn't resist.

Ill stop blabbering now and show you my new bag, that i just can't wait to use!

Festival Vibes with Primark

As festival season is in full swing everyone is searching for that perfect summer outfit. I myself am not attending any festivals but that does not mean that i can't dress like im about to step out of my tent into a sea of mud and empty beer cans.

The 70's are yet again a big influence on this years festival fashion scene, and Primark have some great pieces to help you get that look for less. 

Both items featured here are from Primark and cost no more than £13 for the pair, which i am sure you will agree is an absolute bargain!!

Trend of the Week: The Wrap Dress

Even though i may have titled this post as a "trend" i believe that the wrap dress has never really gone out of fashion. The perfect seasonal cross over dress that can be layered up or striped down to suit almost anyones style.

The one i have decided to feature here is from Topshop and i LOVE it!! 

The heavy weight material and gorgeous muted tones make this dress look expensive and classy - meaning it can take you from work to weekend by just changing up your accessories.

Fit for Summer: Update

A couple of weeks ago i wrote about the beginning of my journey to be toned and in better shape than ever for summer, (you can read the first post here)

I haven't been trying quite as hard as over the last week or so due to being busy and generally feeling quite lazy, BUT progress is still happening and slowly my body is becoming leaner and more toned - so who's to complain!

Over the next few weeks my diet is going on a complete overhaul, as it is currently quite bad and snacking is a small issue. Due to this I'm going to be changing more of what i eat, rather than how much i eat - which will hopefully mean i am never left feeling hungry.

Rather than keep going on, ill show you my (partial) progress pics! Enjoy!

Afternoon Tea at Netherstowe House

On Sunday myself, my mom and a good friend decided to have a girly afternoon out. We decided to attend Netherstowe House - a luxury hotel and restaurant in Lichfield, for afternoon tea.

It is safe to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon out, and after enjoying our afternoon teas (mine was even gluten free!) we retired to the garden for an hour sitting in warm, late afternoon sun.

Of course we took quite a few pictures, and ate ALOT of sweet treats! If you want somewhere for afternoon tea in the Staffordshire area i would 100% recommend trying Netherstowe House.

Their mocktails are amazing! (i was driving)

3Sixty Gymwear

As I have written posts previously on fashion and also my personal fitness, it made sense to do a post that combines both!

3Sixty Gymwear is a fitness brand I discovered on Instagram not that long ago and after talking to the lovely Ben from the brand, I managed to get my hands on a pair of their leggings and a vest, and I must say I am not disappointed in them AT ALL!

I received these items on Friday morning (after missing the delivery on Thursday) and could not resist trying them on right away; comfortable from the word go meant that I wore them in my next gym session Saturday morning to put them to the test.

Saturday morning was back, shoulders and core workout, so I was getting pretty warm during my session and the vest was breathable and lightweight and not hindering my movement at all – exactly the same for the leggings too!!

Honestly guys and girls, if you are looking for VERY reasonably priced gymwear you should deffo check out 3sixty Gymwear, and use my code Charli10 for an extra 10% off!!
