Throwback to the Rep Tour in Toronto. Not only did I get to see @taylorswift again, but I also freakin' love @camila_cabello and @charli_xcx! And then, Taylor went and threw legendary @bryanadams into the mix. So much 🔥 in one night. Not sure I've come down from the high yet, to be honest.
Hey 🙋♀️ How is everyone? I'm good ta. This week I've mostly been binge watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. That show is fudging hilaaarious! It's had me cry-laughing for days. If you need cheering up just go and watch a couple of episodes now. It's amazing. I've also developed a serious addiction to eBay shopping again. I can't stop bidding! This new cardi was only a fiver. And ooooo; It has shiny buttons. But seriously, somebody help!
[Werbung/Produktnennung] Herrscht bei dir in der Wohnung auch Kabelchaos? Bei den ganzen Devices, die so im Haushalt zusammenkommen, kann es schon richtig unübersichtlich werde. Abhilfe schafft die @alldock_eu Ladestation: schaut nicht nur gut aus, sondern ist überaus praktisch. Mehr darüber im aktuellen Beitrag. Link in der Bio.
🖐 Cooeee I'm baaaack! .......Whaddya mean you didn't notice I was gone 🤣 Had such a busy few days & more busy to come so not much chance to post on here. But I know how much insta loves a pic of my feet, soooo...😂 I am absolutely loving these leopard beauts from @callashoesuk , have done a little vid on them over on my stories 🙈 ....oh, and I bought these (well, Ray did), they weren't gifted, so opinions are all mine 😀
Hope everyone is having a fab week 😎
Me and Cora making long distance phone calls in @redbrickvintageandhangar - maybe some people wouldn't expect it of me but one of my absolute favourite things to do is to go antique hunting and flea market shopping. I love finding one off things that no one else will have. Can't wait to finally complete on my new house and get renovating! Follow @scousebirdshouse
Anyone else obsessing over #leopardprint at the moment? 🙋🏼♀️ These #hm culottes were an end-of-season bargain a few years back and are the perfect summer-to-autumn piece. I wear them with knits, leather jackets or boucle jackets 👜
🌻 Gawd I miss these blue skies - it's pelting down in London at the moment!
I've *finally* got round to writing about the weekend we spent in Stratford-upon-Avon for Ben's birthday. We saw lots of sights, did lots of walking and I ate THE BEST pie of my entire life.
Read all about what we got up to (including dramatic dash to the chemist and the subsequent burning of my tongue on my medication) over on the blog. Link in bio as always or visit www.apennyforthem.co.uk.
Throwback Thursday ennit?
19 year old Zara at work ennit?
Yep. I worked retail for pretty much 12 years, and it had so many ups and downs it was unreal.
The fascinating thing was learning human behaviours and how our actions deal with them in reaction.
I learned a lot of lessons along the way, and I still am whilst now being away from it.
People may cuss down retail as a ‘shitty job’ but it’s actually so massively demanding it’s unreal.
Just remember to exercise some mindfulness to the person behind the counter... on minimum wage, pressured into missing their break and covering someone’s late ass 👀
They’re human too.

And trust me, I've met 90% of the ones in Liverpool, I'm sure
Weekend throwback to our best summer goth impressions. Think I might have scared the sun away...sorry about that (but not really because AUTUMN IS THE SUPERIOR SEASON AND I CAN’T WAIT TO WEAR MORE THAN ONE LAYER AGAIN) 🖤
Where did the sun though? It's so wet and miserable out, like my mood! So throwback to our wedding blessing in Las Vegas, when it was absolutely scorchio at 42 degrees. I miss Vegas! Am fortunate to have been a few times. If you've been, where did you stay? I have stayed at Treasure Island, Excalibur, Luxor and Hooters 🤣
Hello to any new followers from @thefrugality or @laurzrah or @me_and_orla Insta Chat (thanks guys much appreciated)! .
Thought I may as well hop on, show you my face and tell you 5 v important things about me.
1. I blog about a range of lifestyle subjects and occasionally relationships/sex. 2. Potatoes are life. 3. I went to my prom in pinstripe trousers and a waistcoat. 4. I’m a twin. She’s better than me in EVERY WAY and 5. I’m getting married next year!
Come and tell me a few things about you!
When I've having a fat day, i ike to look back at how far I've come. I've been a yo-yo dieter all my life. I've joined Slimming World and WW and done low carb and low cal and macro diets and nothing really stuck.
After having Cora, I was the biggest I've ever been. I wasn't in a huge rush to lose the baby weight (I'm a firm believer in enjoying life as a new mum) but after 8 months I thought 'enough is enough' and went back to Slimming World.
I was worried, it had never worked before so why would it now? Only this time it did work. In just over 3 months I'd lost all my baby weight and more and I felt fantastic. See the photo if you don't believe me!
The difference? I kept a food diary. Just a dead basic one I found on Amazon that wasn't very good tbh but I made it work and it was deffo better than those scraps of paper they give you in class. Making myself accountable and visually SEEING what I was putting in my mouth meant there was just no kidding myself anymore. So I designed my own food diary and I like to think it's boss! It's vague enough that you can use it no matter what diet you're following but specific enough so that you have space to record everything.
And of course, because it's me, it's a got a sense of humour too (check out the excuses page!) - because diets can be boring enough right??
Yep the @spectrumcollections Cafe and Carnaby Store is JUST as Insta-worthy as you’d expect. I’m home now after a day of taking pics and shopping with @Laurzrah and I’m actually really happy with all of the visual side of my blog/channels at the moment - so Soz but you’ll be seeing a lot more of this mug (probs why I’m haemorrhaging followers but there we go). I’m settling down to watch some Netflix before Ben gets home - so what’s good?
