This week I’m Loving…….

Last week, I wrote my first ‘instalment of appreciation‘. I shared with you something perhaps very ordinary & mundane, which made me smile. So please, why don’t you join me for a cuppa Rosie Lee: as I express my gratitude for what’s got me grinning over the last week……….

I’m a fully paid up member of the ‘Shoe hoarders anonymous’ club, & there is ALAWYS space for a new pair of kicks, & this week it’s all about the J’s:

I can safely say, I do not posses the posterior prowess of Kim K (or Kardashian-West, if we’re being correct)…….

But I will admit, slightly apprehensively, my hi-top style was inspired by her:

We share the same initials yo, so this is perfectly acceptable…..

& You know that embarrassing mum thing, buying matching outfits? Yup, I did that too:

I’ve stretched my social butterfly wings to the max this week: Various dinners, including one at a swanky London member’s club (Shoreditch house= sHamazing) a ‘sleep over’, The Mumsnet blogfest conference, & cawfeee dates….

I guess then, it was inevitable I’d end the week feeling a little burnt out. & Having avoided the various bugs currently doing the obligatory autumn rounds, I seem to have succumbed to one, oh joy. So this weekend, you’ll find me either snuggled on the couch, with a cocktail of lemsip & lucozade in hand, or submerged in a bath with these treats……

So do tell me, What have you been loving this week?

    I love the matching hi-tops! I was allowed to keep the pair I wore on the street dancing show but have never had the guts to wear them as part of an actual real life outfit, because, well, I am in my forties now and not convinced I could pull them off as well as you!
    Sorry I missed you at Shoreditch House. Must have another coffee catch-up again soon xx

    Sounds like you had a very busy kind of week, so I’m not surprised you’re feeling a bit under the weather now. Hope you feel better soon.
    Shoreditch House does indeed look amazing. I really want to visit there. And loving the new shoes. x
