Well this week marks the start of a new beginning. A Fit one unfortunately, since I am quite bookish I can't flick the pages to see well I'll get on I just have to start at the beginning and hope for best.. and now I'm talking about my life like it's a book! 

I've literally sat and stuffed my face all weekend with bread glorious white bread and chocolate! There are my two major downfalls in food which is why I have decided to give up both.. Ofcourse I'm still going to eat a little bar of chocolate each day or to be more precise sit and devour it but I have said farewell to white bread! No more buttered baps for lunch, or pizza sodas and bagels! It's brown bread all the way and even then I'm cutting down how much I'm going to eat.

I'm also going to try and attempt to do this on my own this time without having the help (or no help) of Slimming World. I've decided to start a checklist of the things I may need to do to get started below.

My Voluptuously Fit Checklist:

  • Look into joining a gym/ getting a personal trainer/
  • Get weighed
  • Start an exercise plan
  • Try to get 8 hours sleep
  • Reward myself each week if I do well
  • Start walking to work
  • Start planning my breakfast/lunches/dinners out weekly
Do I need to add anything else? Hmm... will need to have a think about this! Is there anything you can recommend I do? Or any tips! Let me know! :) I'm not really motivated about this so need to try and be!

What I Wore: I left my < 3 in Paris!

11 May 2015

Recently on social media I have been sharing that I've been quite sick, I haven't went into much detail about it because well... no one actually needs to hear but I haven't been feeling well at all which is why on Saturday I decided to take a dander round to the shop with my mum to get abit of air about me.

I was absolutely drained afterwards, although I did manage to get a few photos beforehand of me in my new SimplyBe t-shirt which I love. I got it while shopping in Belfast a few weeks ago and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to purchase it! I've been obsessed with Paris since I was a little girl so I can't even put into words how much it suits me in relation to my obsession with the beautiful city. 

As you can see from the pics below I kept things super casual which isn't me at all, I didn't even do my full make-up. (I can't leave my house without at least my foundation on) so that's what I done. 

As you can probably tell I LOVE my legs in these jeggings from New Look! 

What I Wore: 

T-Shirt: SimplyBe [ £10.00 ] 
Jeggings: New Look/Inspire [ £19.99 ] 

Shoes & Handbag Both Primark

What do you think of my outfit? Have you got any city themed t-shirts?

Style XL - I'm Ready!

Well, I've done it! I've went and booked my flights to Birmingham for Style XL and I can't blimming wait! Right now I'm in a pick 'n' mix of feeling excited, nervous, anxious, adventurous, shock... and most of all happiness? 

I've went out of my comfort zone and am ready to take on new challenges in my life and to also take a leap of faith in believing I will be alright to do this. 

Travelling on my own for the first time is going to be a major adjustment but something I'm sure I am more than capable of and it's not till July so plenty of time to prepare, have mini episodes of freaking out and panicking about WHAT TO WEAR and PACK? Yikes! I'm gonna need to to start planning pronto! I only have two and a bit months.. Maybe I should rewind before I actually start panicking! Okay back to the excitement phase please! 

I may not particularly know anyone personally yet that is attending BUT I can get to know some! This is going to an event that gives me opportunity is doing just that and I'm ready to grab that opportunity! 

Style XL - I'm READY! :D (Maybe, sorta, I can soo do this!) 

Are you going to Style XL? Have you been to an event like this before? I'm going on my own so any words of advice will be welcome.
