a few milestones


Today marked a little milestone for my big sister, her first proper trip out with Teddy since having him in November, it was lovely to get to spend more time with my tiny Nephew and my gosh hes sucha hit with the ladies its crazy. 

So enough about the tiny bundle of joy! After two months of a (clothes) spending ban, I saw this Anita and Green khaki tartan jacket from New Look I just couldn't pass it by, it makes me rather happy, it falls really well and is super flattering on my hips, and the colours are just perfect for how i feel on wintery days, (forgive my rather pale complexion I suffered a rather bad asthma attack this morning wiping me out) .  Today also marks a bit of a milestone for me, I have been dieting now for just over a year and a half and i've gone from a size 16/18 to a size 10/12 which is such a wonderful feeling now when I go shopping. I have spoken in the past about the ups and downs all I can say is bloody get in now to tone up and I'll happily don a bikini for the summer! Next week I might even pluck up the courage and join the gym?! 

So I have excitedly started planning outfit photos, as I want to get in the habit of featuring more of what I wear now that I'm not too afraid of snapping what I look like for the blog. 

What are your top tips for snapping the perfect outfit photo?

  5. Erm....I'm a little bit in love with that jacket! It's sold out online now but I'll be scouring all the shops for it over the next few days! The lady wears a jacket like this in the Secret Escapes advert but it's Vivienne Westwood and so obviously way out of my budget but this is the perfect alternative!
    Little Teddy is so cute! That seems to be a popular name at the moment! I know a few little Teddys!
    Massive congratulations with your weight loss too. You are absolutely beautiful Ella (and always have been) xx

  7. Gosh, I know what you mean. I went from a size 16 down to a 8/10 yet I still feel major anxiety about selfies/outfit posts. I'm not sure if it's because I feel my blog is more of a lifestyle thing rather than personally about me but, I have no idea how to get over that barrier and steer things in the way of fashion.
    You look fab though! Really healthy and happy. :)
