New trainers - Nike Flex

Hi guys,
I am slooowly edging my way back towards the gym and of course the first step is finding some nice comfy training gear to sweat in!

I have been looking around for a nice pair of versatile running trainers that can be used for all sporting activities and found these pretty bright Nike trainers.

I was actually geared towards getting some black and white ones. 
Who doesn't like a nice bit of monochrome? Why not look chic whilst pumping iron eh!

I eventually narrowed down to 5 pairs and ended up buying these beauties.

These are the Nike Flex Trainer 4 Ladies Fitness Trainers, which are specifically designed for the gym.


* Fitness trainers 
* Flexible grooved outsole 
* Mesh upper panels 
* Inner cushioning 
* Nike swoosh - always helpful if your buying nike! lol
* Lace up 
* Leather/textile upper 
* Textile lining 
* Synthetic sole


* Main: Black -these have that it is so black they look blue tone.

* Accent colour: neon hot pink

* Inside and laces: light mint blue

These trainers are incredibly comfortable and have great breathability.
They retail for £44.99 and are so worth it, considering trainers can cost anything up to £200.
I am really pleased and am currently breaking them in with walking and jogging to make sure the ankles and arches are properly supported in preparation for the gym.
I have also worn them out to amp up a sports luxe look to great effect.

I really like these and can't wait to see how they fare at the gym!

Have you been rocking any stylish gym wear?

AW14: wrap it up!

Now you might not actually be able to take your blankets to work (if only) but these are the next big thing.
Cape/blankets/wraps or shawls call them what you will are always an important autumn/winter piece!
I love over sized wraps as there is something so Amazonian warrior princess about them.

They work with everything and just elevate an outfit.
If you are a little scared of the open nature of the wrap you can easily modify they with a few stitches to create arm holes or add belt loops for a more fitted look.
 It is super easy to do and takes 5 minutes.
Here are so affordable beauties to help you battle stylishly through the gusty wind that is occurring in London.

1- classic

2- Traditional


4- Old school

Are you a fan of the blanket/ wrap?

Getting figgy with it: Procuitto & roasted fig salad

Roasted fig and procuitto salad nom noms.
Fruit and meat yeh I am Henry VIII like that lol. I have a very love hate relationship with figs. 
Sometimes they are just too sweet and complex for my palate. However when placed with  the tang of pears, wild salad, salty procuitto and a damn sexy dressing they are puuuurfect!
Rocket is a perfect addition to this mix and makes this an awesome autumn/winter salad.

1x large bag od Spinach
1/2 bag wild leaves
1x Procuitto
6x Figs
2 x Pears
3x tablespoons of Poppy seeds

Mexican honey
Chilli flakes
Poppy seeds
Olive oil
Rice wine

This container keeps it fresh for up to 3 days after and at 99p it was a steeaaaal!

Happy eating

Shoppers + pouches

I have really been digging simple shoppers and pouches of late.
 They are soooo chic and sophisticated. I have veered towards black (obvs so me) and there is something rather Autumnal about them. They just have an air of sexy Autumn/ Winter mystery.

Meet my current favourites.....


I am so of that generation that carries their whole life and room in their bag. 
My generation will be those crooked arm, lopsided old ladies lol!
The shopper allows me to do this and yet looks streamlined. Strangely I have been carrying less and the fact that the shoppers don't have compartments gives me the opportunity to put my pouches to good use. I have become strangely organised, no scrabbling about looking for my oyster for me!
Win win no?

Unfortunately they are all sold out except this little beauty

Are you feeling the Shopper + Pouch vibe?
