February & March 2023 new in


I ended up forgetting to do my February new in post so today's post is a mixture of both February & March's new in items so it might be a bit of a long post. The budget really hasn't gone to plan for either February or March thanks to one big purchase that ended up with a lot of little purchases, turns out puppies really do cost you a fortune but I can't complain as he is well and truly part of the family now and is settling in brilliantly. The dog certainly took up plenty of our money the past two months however, I have also started making a few purchases for the house and for upgrading my wardrobe to start being able to achieve the style I really have in mind for my future self, let's just say it has been interesting trying on totally new pieces and experimenting with what works for me and what doesn't. So here is everything I have picked up in February & March...

Whilst in Home Bargains I really couldn't resist buying these two dog toys ready for the puppy arriving with us. These cost no more than £3 each so were perfect to start off his little toy collection although both have been absolutely destroyed already and need replacing, but at the prices they were I don't mind.

I also picked up a Scooby Doo ball from B&M for the dog as again this was cheap but I knew it was likely to entertain him and this has definitely done the trick as he absolutely loves playing with this ball although he does still jump when he gets it to squeak.

Another Home Bargains dog purchase and it is yet another toy for him. This tug of war rope was only 99p and so far we have had a lot of fun with this and it is the go to for tiring him out. I was going to buy an expensive version of this at first but at 99p this is doing the trick well and it is something we will always have for him.

We also ended up getting this Home Bargains blanket for the dog as at just £2.99 it is a much more budget friendly option and he loves it. He loves snuggling up in it and so far it hasn't been destroyed in the slightest, no doubt that will start to take place as he grows though but again at £2.99 I don't mind if we have to repurchase one of these.

my mum found this in B&M and we immediately decided this would be great for the warmer weather or even after muddy walks when those begin. We thought it was a bargain at £5 however, when it scanned through at just £1 it was even more of a bargain and should come in really handy once those walks start to take place.

We definitely don't need a cooling bowl anytime soon however, I have realised with the likes of Home Bargains that you need to get things when you see them or you risk never seeing them again. This again was only a few pounds so I have picked it up ready for the warmer weather we should hopefully be getting in the near future. I am definitely on the hunt for cooling things now so I don't get caught out later on down the line.

The dog is going to hate me at Christmas time but I really couldn't resist this Grinch headband from Primark as it was reduced down to 50p. I can just imagine him running round the living room with it on whilst we are getting the festive mood, is it bad I am already super excited for his first Christmas? I am sure it won't be the last of these kinds of purchases.

I am determined that 2023 is going to be the year where we finally get our back garden finished as it has been dragged out for far too long now. One thing I have wanted to add for a while now is some nice lights around the barriers we have on our decking and these rope effect ones seem to be perfect for the sort of these I would love to go for. I just hope I have purchased the right lengths. There will 100% be a lot more garden purchases in April's post as that will be a big focus plus I want some more relaxing lights for the garden fence.

I needed a bit of a restock from MyProtein and one thing I really needed was these glucosamine sulphate tablets which have been really beneficial since I first started taking them. My knee feels so much better since I started on these so I always make sure I have some to handy so I can keep up to them and have less pain in my knee for a change.

Whilst on the MyProtein website as per usual I got sucked into their clothing deals and ended up picking this set up which is labelled as a running set. As you all know I am doing the 5K in June and I think this could be the outfit I opt to wear however, at the moment it is quite a bit too tight so the aim is to have it as the perfect fit by the start of June, fingers crossed that goes to plan.

I seem to have a shortage of shorts in my workout clothing selection so when I saw these reduced I ended up adding them to my basket without a second thought. I will admit I wasn't too sure on the colour in person at first however, I love them, they are going to be perfect for those summer workouts and runs.

My dad actually treated me to this football and I am so glad he did as it is the perfect addition to my football collection. This ball is for the Women's World Cup that is taking place in July this year so there was no way I was missing out on this like I did the Euro 2022 ball. This looks great with the rest of my footballs in my home office, it certainly won't be getting kicked around.

Now I have to say I think these might just be the bargain of the year. We went into boots to see what perfume I liked and my mum found a load of sunglasses marked up at just £2 a pair, what makes them better though is that they were all designer sunglasses. I ended up with 3 pairs (1 is meant to be for Liam but I am sure I will wear them too) one is O'Neill, the other is French Connection but my favourite pair are the Karen Millen ones I picked up. I don't think I will get a bargain like this again this year at least.

The warmer weather is approaching which means one thing, no show socks are required. For the cost of these I decided that I would just get all news ones for the warmer weather this year and just throw out all my old ones that are a bit worse for wear. No doubt more will be required by summer but for now 10 pairs should do the trick or do I also near some grey ones?

I have realised that with my style changing I need to pick up some basics now too or layering or just for day to day wear and Primark has been my go to option as I don't want to spend a fortune with my size constantly changing. I have kick started the basic purchases by picking up a plain white vest ready for some Spring time layering, no doubt a black one will be the next purchase.

I also picked up a few pairs of sweatpants from Primark as I just wanted some nice basic pairs for lounging around in. I am spending a lot more time at home these days so comfort really is key especially if it is a long day sat working on blog content, jeans are a no go. I ended up going for two different grey pairs and they should do the job of providing comfort nicely.

When looking at the sweatpants I came across these sweatshirts so couldn't resist getting one of these too as again it will be perfect for lounging around in especially on those cooler days which we are definitely still going to have even as we progress into summer. Again this was under £10 so I don't mind if it gets ruined by the dog or if it doesn't fit after a few months as it is just a basic that doesn't cost a fortune to replace.

Finally I have got myself a gilet. After delaying the purchase for so long I ended up getting this one from Primark for just £12 to see how I got on it. It is safe to say I absolutely this gilet and there will be a lot more added as my size changes and expect loads more once I hit that goal weight as I have so many different styles in mind for what would work with the clothing I plan on opting for.

T-shirts form H&M women? Usually unheard of for me but for £5.99 you really can't go wrong with these two t-shirts. They will look great with some nice trousers in Spring especially if I teamed them up with some nice chinos. I think I am going to look for more t-shirts like this as they will also be great for summer with some nice shorts.

This is 100% a future purchase as there is no way I am a size 16 in Primark just yet but when I saw it in the sale I couldn't resist this pin stripe suit. The pants are long and wide some new I want to try and the blazer is perfect with the trousers or teamed up with other items so it really is going to be a versatile option for my wardrobe. Now I just need to fit into it.

I have really sarted making those changes to my wardrobe for Spring and my new style and this linen style shirt has been the perfect addition which I can't wait to get wearing and styling. It seems like such good quality from Primark and is a much more budget friendly option compared to some of the others I had looked at meaning I don't mind if it only lasts me this year.

It was certainly a spendy few months thanks to the dog however, we are slowly getting back to normal and getting back on track with our budget so fingers crossed April's new in post will only be filled with items I really need to upgrade or those essentials for getting jobs done, especially with the gardens being a big focus now the weather is changing.

3 month fitness goal check in, are things going to plan?


Remember back in January when I set myself some fitness and weight loss goals? Well I am not sure how but we are already 3 months into the year so I thought for today's post we could do a little bit of a check in post to see how we are getting on with those goals as we approach the end of the first quarter of the year. So far 2023 is going by in the blink of an eye and I will be 100% honest I don't feel as though I am doing my best on my journey so far, I feel like the past 3 months have had more downs than ups in terms of overall progress and I am not too happy with that as I was hoping to be in a better place than I am in now but I guess it is just a learning curve and I know what to do better in the future. So here are how each of the goals I set for myself are looking 3 months into 2023, are we on track or do we have a very long way to go?...

End the year on 11 stone 2lb or as close to it as possible. 

Well I can easily say I am way off track with this one. In fact I think I am going to struggle to get into the 12 stone bracket by the end of the year unless I really up my game and make much better choices when it comes to my nutrition and actually getting workouts done. I am still hovering around the high 14's and low 15's at the moment so I am definitely behind where I wanted to be at this stage however, I know with a few changes I could get some pounds shifted in the next 3 months and hopefully see myself work towards this end of year goal and get as close as I can.

Be in a size 14 comfortably 

Now the scales might not be going in my favour at the moment but I must be doing something right as I am actually struggling to get clothing that fits at the moment. My size 18's are becoming far too big on me and in a few places I can fit into a size 16 jean even if they are a bit snug at the moment, I have even managed to get a few size medium t-shirts from H&M women somewhere that clothing has never normally fit me so I am definitely taking that as a win so far for the year. With 16's being a bit snug at the moment I would definitely say we are on track for the size 14's fitting comfortably by the end of the year. Fingers crossed this one keeps heading in the right direction.

Improve overall fitness

I am definitely starting to see a change in my fitness levels. They are certainly nowhere near where I would like them to be however, they are slowly improving. I even managed a full half of football which wasn't possible at the start of the year. Just seeing the small improvement over these 3 months is giving me hope that I will be in such a good place fitness wise by the end of the year. 

Improve overall strength 

This one is definitely not going to plan and I will be honest I am 100% owning up to the fact that this is all my own doing. I am not being consistent enough with my strength sessions so my body is not able to lift any heavy weights yet than what I started on at the start of the year. I am determined to change this though over the course of the next few months as I know if I just become consistent in my strength sessions and do both weekly I will certainly improve on my strength.

Run the inflatable 5K & a regular 5K

This one was always going to start after the first 3 months of the year and I will be kick starting my journey to achieve this goal in the next few weeks and lets just say I am really exited to give it a go. With the inflatable 5K being in June I should be able to tick half of this goal off by then, once that is done it will be a case of aiming to complete a full park run which is 5K without any issues. Let's hope by December both of these goals are ticked off and I am well underway with my running journey.

Go into the new year my healthiest

I am definitely feeling healthier so far this year but I know that I still have a long way to go. I really need to alter my nutrition to really go into 2024 at my healthiest yet as I am still going over calories most days and not hitting that much needed protein. This goal is definitely a learning curve to achieve it but slow and steady wins the race.

Get a treadmill

There has still been no progress made on the home gym so this one is once again not on track. Once that gym is built though the first thing I am planning on saving for is a treadmill as this will be the perfect addition for me and the goals I have for the future.

Decrease amount of takeaways we have & cook more

This goal has certainly been a bit hit and miss but we are getting there with it. Since getting the dog we have cut back on those unnecessary trips to Tim Horton's & McDonald's but the Just Eat orders have still been placed. We do seem to be cooking a bit more but I am still not happy with how this goal is going so I will definitely be working on it more over the next few months and hopefully by the next check in we will have seen some big progress.

Meal prep weekly

Oh look another goal that has been really hit & miss. I started the year off strong with this one however, since then things have gone downhill and I am not prepping like I should be. I know that if I got into the habit of this my progress would get so much better however, I have started to become a bit too lazy so I want to change that and by the end of month 6 I want to have really got better at this and missed minimal weeks.

Start waking up at 5.30 am 

I had high hopes for this one but I just haven't managed to get into the swing of things and thanks to longer nights with the puppy this has been a struggle, I am hoping to get this one moving once the puppy has settled down a bit but for now I am happy having with being up 1 hour than I have been previously and who knows the 5.30 am might be a permanent feature by the end of the year.

Incorporate stretching to routine

Since the start of the year I have got so much better with adding stretching into my routine and I am so grateful to myself for doing this as it has meant that my performance in football has improved and overall recovery time has got much better. This is something I have definitely got better with and want to improve up on and add more throughout the rest of the year before saying I have completed this goal. 

So there you have it that is how my goals for my journey are currently going, there is a lot I can improve upon and this check in has helped me just sit and reflect on what needs to change and how I can make better progress over the next few months to really get my journey for the year up and running. Now lets get some progress made and really push for a big change before the end of June. 

If I could only buy a few new things this Spring, I would get...


I think I can honestly say that I am 100% looking forward to Spring this year. I am over the cold weather and I am ready to add some colour to my wardrobe at long last and spend plenty of time outdoors without having to worry about freezing as the winter was definitely a cold one. There will hopefully be plenty of little adventures this Spring thanks to the addition of the dog to the family but either way I want to spend more time outdoors enjoying the weather rather than being glued to my screen 24/7 as I am getting fed up of doing that all the time these days I want to balance my life better. 

I don't only want to get out more in Spring though, I am going to use the new season to experiment with a few areas in my life and hopefully work towards building the new style I am aiming for. I am going to try out some new clothing and just get in touch with the side of me I want to tap into more often and I think the new season is the perfect time to do that. With my journey I am on though I don't want to be spending a fortune on items if they aren't going to suit me or don't actually fit into what I envision that is why I am going to be limiting purchases to one item in each area, this should help me not only work out what I like or don't but also help me save a bit of money along the way, something I really need to do. 
So here is what one item I would purchase from each category to keep the budget on track and also give me the chance to experiment with what works for me...

The Gilet

I absolutely love this Holland Cooper country fleece gilet however, at £99 it would certainly be an investment piece for me which I am still not 100% sure about with my size constantly changing. I don't want to spend near £100 on a gilet if it isn't going to last a few years. This is the absolute dream purchase though as it would be perfect on the dog walks on cooler days and would love great for general day to day wear. I might not get this exact one this year and might opt for a cheaper alternative but watch this space as I am determined that once I hit my goal I am picking this gilet up along with other pieces from Holland Cooper. 

The shirt 

I love a good shirt all year round however, this Spring I want to get out of the checked shirts or thicker ones that I often wear and try something not only thinner but also smarter. I am going to aim for just the 1 shirt this Spring (no doubt I will probably not stick to this due to my love for shirts) and the shirt I aiming hoping to add to my wardrobe is this blue Oxford one from H&M. I love H&M's shirts and they are pretty cheap too at just £17.99. I already have plenty of different outfits in mind for this shirt so lets hope I can pick one up very soon, it will be perfect for work and those smarter days out. 

The Shoes

I am determined to not be wearing sneakers every single day throughout Spring however, to do this I need to actually go out and buy some nice shoes which will go with the style I am aiming to achieve. I seem to be gravitating towards a nice simple pair of loafers which will no doubt go with a lot of the outfits I have in mind and will be a nice smart alternative to a pair of sneakers. I already own a pair of chunky loafers which I absolutely love so fingers crossed a simpler pair will also do the trick.

The Sneakers

I know I have just said I won't be wearing sneakers all Spring however, sometimes you just can't beat a good pair of sneakers though and they can make an outfit look that little bit more casual. I tend to just wear my white Air Force 1's these days but I really fancy a change and it is these Adidas Samba's that jump out at me every time so I think it could be time to purchase a pair. The only issue is that these are really popular on social media so it is really hard to find them in stock. Fingers crossed I find some soon though as I love them.

The Jacket

I really need a new lighter jacket that is going to go with the new style I am aiming for and I will be honest if I can only add one into my wardrobe this Spring I really want it to be a trench coat. I just love how smart trench coats are and think it would love great with some nice trousers or even jeans if done right. My only issue is going to be finding the perfect one as due to my height and body size some could look absolutely ridiculous on me so I definitely need to shop around and try before I buy for one of these coats.

The Trousers

I am determined that for Spring I will have some of the H&M cigarette trousers as I absolutely love them. For just £17.99 these could be the perfect trousers for me and they look really smart. I would definitely get the colour in the image above for Spring but if I wore them enough I think I could easily get a navy pair ready for when the weather starts to turn for the worse again. I tried a pair of these on recently but they just didn't fit me but I am hoping that if I keep up as I am with my weight loss I will be in them in no time and ready to wear them as much as possible in the nicer weather.

The Tops

I am wanting to move away from wearing printed t-shirts daily and try to stick to nice simple t-shirts. Granted I don't want plain t-shirts daily I do want a bit of a pattern to go with some outfits and that is why I have my eye on these striped t-shirts again from H&M. These are just £5.99 so aren't too expensive if my size changes and I need a restock and will look great dressed up or down whatever mood I am in that day. I can see these becoming my go to tops too especially on the warmer days as they feel super soft and would look great even with some nice shorts.

The Fragrance 

All my current scents are pretty masculine and to be honest I think I am over that and want to give something a bit more feminine a try. There are so many great options out there at the moment and to be honest I am struggling a little to narrow down just which one I want to purchase however, after having a try of this Gucci Flora in Boots recently I am just a little bit in love and it could win the race to be my daily fragrance throughout Spring and possibly Summer if it lasts that long. The top notes in this were gorgeous and if the budget allows it I might be wearing it sooner than I think.

The Accessory 

Now my size is changing I am learning the importance of a good belt especially whilst I am trying to get my trousers to fit as long as possible however, I don't own many belts that actually fit so it is time to change that. The belts I do have are men's and are too thick for the majority of the belt loops on my trousers so I am on the hunt for the perfect thinner belt. I absolutely love this Ralph Lauren one which is also reversible which should mean I get even more value for money as it would go with plenty of outfits plus it looks fantastic due to how simple it actually is. 

The Skincare 

I really need to start taking care of my skin more often as it isn't in it's best condition at the moment. That is why this Spring I want to add one skincare item to my routine which is going to give my face a bit of a boost and help get it in better condition than it is currently in. This Origins hydrating cream has been on my watch list for a while now so maybe it is time to make the jump and purchase a tub at long last to see if it does make a difference, my only problem is it is definitely on the pricey side of things.

So there you have it if I could only have one item from each category this is what I would purchase. I am really hoping that during Spring I can get my hands on a few of these items as they would certainly help me out in terms of improving my style and wardrobe overall whilst giving me the chance to experiment a bit. 

What would be your first purchase from this list?

The items that make up my Spring wish list...

Finally Spring is here and let's just say I am very ready for the warmer weather to start appearing as I am for once getting sick of being layered up, I just want to wear less layers and be able to go out and enjoy myself rather than freezing and getting soaked although no doubt I will be caught in plenty of Spring time showers thanks to where in the UK I am. As you will see this year my style and taste in clothing is changing and I said I was going to wait until I got to my target weight to start changing my wardrobe to suit the style I want to achieve however, I am sick of putting it off as I need to change my mindset around this, why not experiment and be me whilst I am on my weight loss journey still that way I can get a feel for what works for me and what doesn't. 

With the new season approaching I would love to experiment with my new style a bit and start purchasing pieces that will compliment the season and possibly work well in Summer too. Granted the clothes might not fit me next Spring but other pieces could be a bit of an investment that last me years if I go for the right quality of the items. So here are the items that have made it to my Spring wish list...

As I am losing weight I know I require a belt a lot more often and to be honest I should have been wearing one for a long time as they help add an extra element to your outfit overall. The belts I currently own are all from the men's department and are quite chunky so won't fit through the loops of the trousers I am wanting to purchase. I really need to get myself a thinner belt and this reversible Ralph Lauren one is standing out to me the most. I love how smart yet simple this looks and think it would be great all year round but more specifically it will look great with the smarter trousers I want to purchase for Spring. At £69 I would like to think it would last me a while but as I am on my fitness journey only time will tell I guess.

All my fragrances are pretty masculine or just cheap dupes of other fragrances, I even have a fair few celebrity ones in my collection however, I don't fully love them like I once did. I haven't had a real favourite fragrance since my Tom Ford Black Orchid ran out (I still need to replace this) and I want a more feminine one especially for the Spring weather. So far Gucci Flora is winning the race however, I do want to head to the shops to have a try of a few other ones to see which I love the most. I am really going off those masculine scents so who knows what I am going to end up with but a nice new Spring fragrance is a must this year.

I am determined that I won't be wearing sneakers all Spring, I really want to mix up my footwear and with some of the styles I am aiming for I would love to pick up a nice pair of ballet pumps, granted these might take some getting used to as they are totally different to my usual footwear but I think they would be a nice change and make the outfits I am planning on putting together look a lot smarter. I will definitely be shopping around to see the best I can find on a budget at first so I can see if they work for me however, if they do I will be investing in some more expensive ones that would hopefully last longer.

After buying a pair of chunky-ish loafers for the festive period I have fallen in love with the style of shoe and I really want to add some more into my footwear rotation. I think for the Spring I would like to pick up some more that aren't on the chunky side and look a little bit smarter. These really would be perfect for the office and for those smarter days when I am out and about.

Of course I aren't going to cut out buying sneakers all together as I love them far too much and that is why I have my eye on a pair of the viral Adidas Samba's. I love these as they look like a much smarter sneaker than I am used to and thanks to the colours they will go with a lot of my wardrobe. The hardest part is certainly going to be getting my hands on a pair as they are selling out in no time. These will be a great alternative to my white Air Force's though and just make a nice change.

My old Primark all white sneakers have lasted me around 3 years, which isn't bad for a £12 price tag however, I think it is time to upgrade them to a new pair as they are looking a little worse for wear. I think I might see if Primark have them in stock again this year or I might even have a look around for a more expensive pair but either way a new, fresh looking pair of all white sneakers is heading to the top of the list for this Spring.

I never really thought I would be putting this on a wish list however, as I am thinking about the style I want to achieve I keep going back to leggings. I would love a nice pair of leggings for work during the Spring as the office is still quite cold. I could style these so many ways and I am definitely going to intensify the search for the perfect pair, I have so many items these will already work well with so fingers crossed I can find a pair.

Every time I am on the H&M website I seem to end up looking at their cigarette trousers at £17.99 these are pretty inexpensive and come in a nice variety of colours. These would definitely be perfect for work and with the colours on offer I could get a few pairs to go with a variety of items I already own or intend on purchasing. These just look so smart for the price tag and I could see me getting plenty of wear out of them on a day to day basis as they look like a comfier alternative to jeans.

I love a good pair of chinos at this time of year and this year is no exception. My mum even said the other day ' Marks & Spencers have their chinos out if you need any' they have been my go to place for buying them for years and that won't be changing any time soon. I definitely want a few better fitting pairs this Spring as I have lost weight since I lost wore the ones I have and they are a bit too baggy. Now I just need to sort out what colours are going to be best for me this time around.

I am loving stripy tops these days yet I don't own any yet. That is changing this Spring though as I think a few of these could become most worn items in my wardrobe. I would love a few in different colours and in both short sleeved and long sleeved versions so I have options for if it drops cooler too. I will definitely be picking up a few different colours of these as they will just add a bit extra to a basic outfit without breaking the bank. With chinos or smarter trousers these could love really good I think.

I need to restock on my basic t-shirts too as I only currently have black ones which I am determined now to be wearing all Spring as I want to add a bit more colour to my outfits this time around. I will be getting stocked up on more white ones and then seeing what other colours I can work into my wardrobe well. I am determined to start brightening up my outfits a bit more. 

My wardrobe is overflowing but it is missing one big thing in my opinion... a blue oxford shirt, this is something I have put off buying for a while now but I think now is the time I make the purchase. Granted I have my eyes on a Ralph Lauren one but there is no point getting one of those yet as it is too expensive whilst my size is constantly changing. H&M do some nice ones though and this is perfect for day to day wear as it looks smart without being overly smart.

I have been loving watching peoples reels on Instagram which have included a blue striped shirt so after much internal debate I am determined to add a much better fitting one into my wardrobe as my Primark one purchased around Christmas time is already far too big on me and although over-sized can look good it is far too over-sized. Again it is H&M that are winning me over the most with their options so expect to see one picked up from there soon.

I am wanting to try something different this Spring/Summer, I would love to pick up a few linen shirts for both work and day to day wear as I am loving some of the options around on the high street at the moment. As the warmer weather approaches I would definitely love to add a few different colours into my collection white white, blue and possibly beige or a sandy colour at the top of my wish list.

I absolutely love a good blazer and to be honest due to my previous style I have stuck to black ones in my wardrobe however, that is 100% going to change this Spring. I am on the hunt for the perfect lighter coloured & lighter material blazer that I can style on those cooler days. The one in the image above would certainly be ideal for me however, I wont be stopping there as I would also love a light grey one and who knows what other colours.

I only own windbreakers and although these will be great for plenty of outfits especially on those football weekends, they certainly aren't going to go with the new smarter style I am aiming for. I definitely need a new coat/jacket for the cooler weather and I love these short trenches and think they would work well with the style I am aiming for in the future. I don't want to spend a fortune on one though as I know it might not last too long due to my weight loss journey so I will be searching for the perfect one on offer. Fingers crossed I end up finding one I love as I could see me getting plenty of wear out of it as the weather gets better.

I might want a short trench coat but I also really want to add a long one to my wardrobe. I don't know why but I absolutely love the trench coats and can think of plenty of ways I would style it, I need to be careful though as due to me being so short this could easily look terrible on me so I need to have a good shop around to find the perfect one. There are plenty of colour options out there too so who knows what one I will end up with if I find one that really suits me. 

My current denim jacket is now miles too bit for me and I am a bit annoyed as it was by far the best I have had in a long time, I guess if Primark have them back this year I could always resort to picking up a new one however, I think I want to shop around and see if I can find a bit of a better quality one but again with the weight loss another Primark one might do the trick until I hit my goal and my size settles down a bit.

Finally on the wish list we have a lovely green gilet. I totally blame this on YouTube as I have seen this Holland Cooper one advertised on there so many times so I think it might be time to have a look at investing in one. Granted this is an expensive purchase especially with my size changing however, I would love something like this for dog walks on cooler days. I might look for a cheap one in the time being but when I am happy with my style and size this Holland and Cooper one is definitely off into my wardrobe probably with a few other items from the site too, I guess I best get saving.

I am no longer putting off changes due to my weight loss journey, I might as well use this time as I work towards my goals to experiment with what I want to achieve and what works for me and what doesn't. All I know for now though is that I am so ready to make these changes and I am really looking forward to seeing what works for me and just how different my style becomes over time. Granted there will be a bit of a mix of the style as I work on my wardrobe plus this isn't going to be me 100% of the time for a while yet as I do like my more sporty looks too but I am looking forward to picking up some of these items and really finding my own style.

What item is the top of your Spring wish list?
