Lady in Red

Yay!! It's Friday :)  This work malarkey is hard work after 11 lovely days of freedom.  Thank goodness there is another bank holiday in a few weeks!  I actually have a week off over the bank holiday and am going away for a few days with my Parents, my sister, her fiance and my boyfriend to a little holiday home in Wales.  I am praying we have nice weather as it's meant to be quite remote with not much to do other than chill out and walk lots.   I'm really looking forward to it. 

Those of you who follow me on twitter or wherearemyknees will know that I started the 30 day shred this week.  Today is my fourth day and although I am not finding it at all easy I still don't ache like I expected to.  I want to feel the pain to know it's working!!  I'm going to load it on my iPad ready to take on holiday with me, there is no escape and I will not quit until I have done at least 30 days.  If you have no idea what I am talking about Charlene wrote a post explaining all.  If you want to give it a go tweet me and I'll send you a special DM ;)

Dress: asos

I ADORE this dress.  I love everything about it apart from the weird pleat detail on the neckline but I can deal with that.  The fabric is a lovely weight and is my favourite type, non-crease!  I really love red at the moment and am finding myself drawn to it along with block colours, still love my florals though! 

I ordered both dresses from this weeks Wednesday Wants and am not sure which I prefer!  I now own the topshop lace dress in all colourways as it is so easy to wear.  The red version is a bit different though as it's a good 5 inches or so longer and fits much bigger, really wish I had downsized it before it went out of stock.  I wear the cream one to death and am thinking that I will most likely keep both the blue and the orange as I love both colours and just cannot choose one!

  7. Pain is NOT gain - Its not true, take it from me!! Honestly!!

    As long as you're doing it right and can feel it whilst you're doing it, good! Mind you I always used to feel it the next day going down steps. Jeebs!! I cannot WAIT to get back on it, I'm missing it so much, I'm getting flabbilicious! xx

    Dress looks lovely!

  8. I adore your dress too. I think I need more red in my life. xx

  9. I PROMISE the shred will get easier!

    Maybe we should start a little blogger-shred thing? Get a few of us to do it and see how we all get on?

    I'm excited they do it for iPad! I didn't know that, now I have no excuse for not doing it when I'm away!

    What size weights are you using? xx

  10. Love the shape of this dress, I could be tempted to get it in black. I like the 30 day shred but have never done 30 days in a row!


I love comments, thank you xx
