My mum was being David Bailey in the middle photo and making me laugh hence why my face looks funny!

This is one of my comfort outfits. Gone for the combo of blue and red yet again! I have had the dress years, brought it on a whim when I had my first work experience placements. I was working just off Chancery Lane which is far too close to Oxford Street than is healthy. I went a bit crazy in those two weeks and spent £200 on clothes, a whole months wages. Yep I have no self control. I have this cardigan in black and tan too. For £7 it seemed like the perfect idea to buy it in all the different colours! It is so warm and cosy and saved me from wearing a jacket when I ran into town to do some errands.

I recieved the 30 day shred in the post today and am going to try it tomorrow. Dreading it to be honest but needs must. I am fed up of moaning about my weight and decided to do something about it. I was going to start it tonight but am going to jazzacise later on and I don't think my body will cope with both! I have lost 2 pounds since my healthy eating programme kicked into place last week. I am so happy, its given me the motivation to carry on.

I ordered some naked skincare products thanks to a groupon voucher. I haven't try any of their products before but have heard good things! Have any of you tried them? Would you be interested in reviews?
