Is it just me or is January just a little, dull. It’s like a month long hangover, punishing you for having too much fun in December. Your social life takes a hit, your bank balance is in recovery, the weather sucks (well more so than the usual) and for me it’s also a really busy time at work. It’s no wonder really that January is home to Blue Monday.
Angela’s Advice: Pour yourself a glass of prosecco and pat yourself on the back you’ve survived it. You rock!!
Only 9 days in and I had a cold for 6 of those but February is proving to be a right little ray of sunshine already.
On Saturday I attended a style event in Glasgow hosted by fashion stylist and blogger Victoria Martin. I’ve followed Victoria’s blogs for a few years, as well as lusted over many an outfit post on her Instagram.
You can find her at A Lifestyle Less Ordinary
Shake up your Style was her first event in her new and very gorgeous office/event space The Lifestyle Lab.
I had serious interior envy, the space is super on trend with neutral grey hues and an abundance of beautiful rose gold accents (I am currently OBSESSED with everything rose gold right now!). Everyone in attendance commented on how gorgeous it was.
The style workshop was excellent especially if like me you have a closet full of clothes but ‘nothing to wear’or find yourself always leaning towards the old faithful ‘all black errthang’. Victoria talked us through what she would with any of her new style clients. Obtaining a capsule wardrobe giving us tips on how to mix and match day and night wardrobes, how to add colour and accessorising.
It was such a good day, I met some really lovely girls and picked up some tips that I’m sure will make me a more sensible shopper and of course much more stylish. I’m not going to lie my sister and I hit the shops right after.
Here’s hoping there are no more fashion faux pas on my part. Remember that time I matched the carpet. My friends and I still die laughing at this.
In other news, I was booked for a spiritual reading last Thursday, however long, story, short there was a mix up with the booking and it has now been rescheduled. All was not lost though I still had a lovely lunch and shopping catch up with my two best friends Lynsay and Lyndsay. Lynsay had her reading and was blown away, so I’m really looking forward to mine.
I didn’t work out at all last week as I had caught the ‘office lurgy’ and to be honest after running 5k everyday in January I probably needed the break.
FYI Here’s what I looked like after my last 5k on Jan 31…
Obviously I earned extra prosecco and pats on the back for completing my challenge AND making it through January**smirky face.
This week I’m feeling motivated so beast mode is on. While I typed that I realised its only Tuesday, ha. I have booked a few new classes this week as my fitness challenge for February is to move out of my comfort zone. Weightlifting and boxing are up for trial this week, hopefully they are not as frightening as they sound.
Shopping, prosecco sipping, lunch dates and girlfriends. I told you February was fabulous.
I also bagged myself some Beyoncè tickets today which has pretty much made my year. I’ll be smiling from now until July.
And just when you thought ‘could February be any more Awesome?‘….PANCAKES
What has been your biggest fashion faux pas?
Thanks for reading 😊
Have a great day 💗
