Hiya everyone! Good news, we had the sun pay us a visit today! Well, this afternoon really. As you all know by now, its a wednesday, so we went out for lunch with Chris' grandparents and went to Harvesters in Xscape. Before i went out, i went to visit a family friend as there has been seen some devastating news so i wanted to show my support. It was a pretty normal wednesday to be honest. I really havent been up too much as the weathers been crap and i've been skint, except rushing to my old college to get council tax redemption forms sorted out. We have been up at least 6 or 7 times to try and get our old lecturers to sign them. Nearly each time they were ether out for lunch or out for the rest of the afternoon. Or they just weren't there at all! So we eventually decided to leave the forms with them to fill out, but when we got them back they hadn't even filled them out properly! They forgot to sign it, which is pretty much the most important part of the form as at the office they cant even stamp it officially without the heads signature. Aswell as getting Chris' course wrong. 

So todays outfit is a very summery one! Im really loving this vest top i was gifted by Persunmall, i dont really own alot of tops just t-shirts, so this is a really great addition to my wardrobe. I really love the unique style of the back aswell, i think its quite different. I thought the top would go quite well with these shorts because of the colour then i realised they were flowery too so if anything they matched even more than i planned! As it was a little nippy this morning i added my kimono as it had matching colours and flowery patterns. I wanted to wear these shoes as they are kitten heels and i personally thought they added a bit of elegance to the outfit. I used a brown handbag and sunglasses because i thought they would match my top and outfit more than black.

Hiya everyone how are you all today? Our summer in Scotland has now been and gone. Now replaced with the grey skies and the grey mood that accompanies them. I have had a very lazy day, not getting up until past mid-day! I know, im very naughty. I was very tired from yesterday so i fell into a very deep sleep filled with loads of crazy dreams. As Chris is normally on breakfast duty, he made us both to a square sausage (lorne sausage, sliced sausage, flat sausage) sandwich. Its a scottish delicacy. If you ever come to Scotland you have to try them, none of that normal sausage crap :P

All we have literally done today is run to Asda to get some puddings, as i cooked some dinner for Chris' grandparents and us. I cooked my famous honey-roasted gammon. Its one of my favourite meals and meat! With it we had rosemary & garlic roasted potatoes with cauliflower cheese & brocoli, with added cheese on the top. Fatties. Here are the results.

I wore this outfit a few days ago, well last week, and never got round to posting it. I think i just had a few lazy days then i was visiting my dad. But it dosent really matter as you are getting to see it now! Now the reason for the title post is because i felt well out of my comfort zone wearing this. Its very pastel & pink. I know i look like a girly girl but girly things and pastels do not make me feel comfortable! I need to add something dark or a kind or rock/grunge vibe to it. But im glad i pushed myself and wore something out of my comfort one. I do think ill wear more pastel outfits and maybe ill get used to it, but i think i will maybe try to add something with a darker edge to make it more me and feel comfortable.

Hiya everyone, ive been good and have another post for you! Today Chris and i were up pretty early as our two wee bunnies were going to the vets to get their bits snipped! Originally, we thought they were both girlies, but, we only recently found out they arent! When bunnies are babies its quite hard to tell if they are male or female. So we had to get them in for 9 and when we arrived we were way to early and had to sit in the car for a little while. It was so cute though, Tommy didnt like being in his box so we let him poke his head out. Cheekily, he jumped out so i held him and he was snuggling right into me and leaning his head against me. He dosent mind cuddles usually, but they are normally quite quick and on his terms if he wants them. So, there we were sitting in a carpark outside Pets at Homes holding and stroking a rabbit. They werent in for long but they are very docile right now as they were obviously under anaesthetic. As soon as we got home we put them in their cages to rest with a big bowl of veg & herbs! 

Here they are

So while we were waiting to be called to pick our babies up (i honestly feel like a parent everytime we go to the vets, what the hell am i going to be like when im a real one?) we ran a few errands that needed to be sorted out and went for a spot of lunch. We went to our favourite restaurant Amarettos' as they have a really good meal deal/lunch menu. I for once decided to be adventurous and try something new. I always re-order the same thing in EVERY place i eat. Was it a good decision? Yes and no. I had pork with a green pesto, lemon pasta. I really loved the pork it was super juicy and i love pesto! But the lemon touch was too much for me, i think i will order it again but ask for no lemon to be added! 

Dosent it look delicious though?

So lets talk about todays outfit choice and the post title. I AM NOT at all into the sport trend, i personally really dont get it and this is as much "sport trend" you will get out of me. I need to try and make the outfits for these shoes as un-sporty as i can. But when i seen these beautiful DC "low tops" in tkmaxx i could not resist them! For some reason, it was like love at first sight. When i was younger i really wanted a pair but at the time my mum couldnt afford the prices of them! The prices of these really helped kick off my new found love affair for them, £84.99 down to £24.99! I love the colour of them plus, they are seriously some of the comfiest shoes i have ever worn. They are just amazing. Originally i was going to wear a pinkish crop top from Topshop but it was more a burgundy purplish pink. So i thought this top would match perfectly with the blue in my shoes. When i was younger i was really really into sports, i was pretty much the sport kid in my class aswell. So that is why i have names it i used to be a sporty spice :P Plus im now very unfit :P

Hiya everyone, sorry ive been "mia" missing in action. How are you all doing? Have you been struck down with the return of the bad weather like we have in Scotland? We were getting such nice weather then all of a sudden the cloudy skies and spitting returned. Last weekend i went down to my dads as my little brother was visting because of fathers day. The plan originally was to turn up and surprise him this weekend, but it turned out that Thomas was visiting last weekend instead. We had a good time together, if you seen my instagram the weather was amazing! I even got a little sunburnt while we were at the park playing cricket. My brother isnt normal he has some amount of energy! Even when its boiling hot and hes too tired to run, he keeps running! I really wish i had his energy and enthusiasm for sport.

These photos were taken a few weeks ago at my villages' annual fete & parade Lillias Day. It was created for someone who used to live here, quite some time ago, but to be honest i cant even remember why it was even created and why we celebrate it for her. It used to be really good and busy, but i feel these days people really arent interested in these sorts of things. Especially taken part in your community. Chris and i found my two cousins to watch the parade with as Amy lives here aswell and Lisa has two children, who love these things. Then we just hung about with my younger cousin and her boyfriend for a wee while. Unfortunately, all that day the rain was on and off so we came home and watched a movie. The sun actually decided to pay us a visit once everything had finished and been cleared away.

Im pretty sure originally that day i had something else planned to wear, but since it was raining a little i had put something on a bit more warm and covered. I literally threw this together as i seen the top next to my bed and i hadnt worn my Dr martens in a while. I did want something a bit cool/rock looking to wear but i wanted to be comfy also as i knew id be walking about. I really love how this outfit turned out and even though ive now blogged it, i would like to wear again. Soon. I added some pink lipstick to add a pop of colour and since im always wearing red!
