Blogging has been on the back burner for me for a little while now. Work is very quiet and I know I’ve lost my mojo a little. It’s tough as when work is quiet, I seem to run out of inspiration and ideas! However, life is getting more and more positive by the day, as we slowly come out of lockdown and regain some form of normality I thought I would write a little about some of the things I’ve loved this April.
It’s amazing as we are seeing shops and hospitality start to open up again. People are smiling and seem happier and April may not have been as hot as last year but it has been fun!
This is what I have loved!
Over the Easter break we saw friends who we haven’t seen in months! We met up at some outdoors places and it was just lovely. Before the lockdown, this was something we would do quite regularly and like many people, we have really missed it. The kids always play nicely and it’s great to have some adult company and chats. Also great to tire the kids out!
I feel like I have waited for months and this is true. I hadn’t had a hair cut and colour since September, which is 7 months ago. I wasn’t even doing anything with my hair, apart from tying it up wet. It was in bad condition and so I decided to cut a good amount off. From all the way down my back to above my shoulders! I also had all the blonde cut out and went back to being a full redhead again! I love it and have made sure I have booked my next cut in already!!
Hitting the Shops and New Clothes
I’m not going to lie, I’ve missed shopping so when the shops reopened on the 12th of April, I was back quickly having a browse. All the kids needed new shoes and it was lovely just to wander and look around.
I’ve also had some lovely items from Femme-Luxe this month; perfect for the hopefully, upcoming warmer months.
The first item is a lovely Black & White Dalmatian Print Midi Dress from the Dresses Collection. It currently retails at £8.99 and I’m wearing a size 10.
My next item is a Red Tie Dye ‘Guns N Roses’ T-Shirt Dress from the T-Shirt Dresses Collection. I actually tied this on one side and made it into a regular tee, as preferred that. The colours are great and I’m wearing a small, size 8-10. This currently retails at
I can just get away with a crop top and this Black Ribbed One Shoulder Crop Top from the Crop Tops and Bralets Collection.
This retails at £6.99 and I chose a size 10.
I love my denim shorts and usually live in them over the summer months. Just so easy and comfortable! These Blue Mid Wash Distressed Denim Shorts from the Shorts Collection retail at £15.99 and I wear a size 10.
It has been lovely making plans again! We are not a family that always do things every weekend. I love to see friends and family but in the summer months, the kids enjoy chilling in the garden and playing out. Plus we fit swimming and gym trips in too! However, having the option to plan again is amazing! I’m catching up with my brother, friends and even going out for food and drinks. Happy days. Hubby and I even had a shopping trip into Birmingham.
I’ve no idea why this was not a lot higher on my list but I’m LOVING being back at the gym again. I’ve been aiming to go 2-3 times a week and keep up with my running. It’s fab to have the weights back again and get back to proper training again.
As we are heading towards the end of April into May with more exciting relaxations to lockdown to come, I’m certainly ready. Just need some lovely warm weather now!
