A Week In Instagram Photos

So if you don’t follow me on Instagram (which you most definitely should!) then you won’t have seen these photos I have posted.
Today I thought I would do a little round up and explanation of the photos I’ve posted over the past week.

‘#FBF to the most wonderful place on Earth ❤️??’
So I thought I’d post a little Flashback Friday from when I went to Disneyland Paris for my 18th Birthday.
I’m always thinking about Disney and about being there, so thought why not post a picture of my favourite castle!

boots

‘Wearing my new @topshop boots! Ps. I promise my feet aren’t that big ?’
Last week I ordered myself some lovely tan boots from Topshop and as soon as they came I fell in love with them!
So I thought I’d post this autumnal snap to showcase my new babies.

‘Need to buy myself this outfit ASAP ??? PS. Top shop changing rooms have the WORST lighting ?’
A couple of weekends ago I went shopping with my niece and tried on this outfit in Topshop which I absolutely adore!
Unfortunately I didn’t buy the items on the day, but I think I will definitely be picking it up as soon as possible.

‘❤️’
Wise words from Walt Disney himself never go amiss!
I like to post a little pick me up quote every now and then and I felt like this one was relevant to me when I posted it.

Lastly, I posted this snap of my lunch from yesterday (Thursday).
I had a tuna, sweetcorn, salad cream and spinach seeded wrap which was very yummy with a green tea on the side.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll probably do some more similar posts in the future!

Coat Season: Zara Special

blogcoat

So it appears that this past week it has officially changed to Autumn/Winter – perhaps more Winter looking at the grey sky and chilly air!
This has led me to thinking about which coat I would like for the colder months.
There are so many to choose from and I haven’t quite decided which coat will be the ‘one’ for me this year!
However, I have had a little browse on Zara – everyone knows they nearly always hit the nail on the head with their outerwear collection for A/W – and have compiled a list of a few coats I am considering getting.
anarak detahcable hood

The first coat that caught my eye was this beige anorak with a detachable hood. As I have mentioned in a previous post, I’m loving anything beige/tan coloured at the moment and I loved this as soon as I saw it. I think it would be perfect for the chilly days as it looks like it is quite thick and the fluffy hood is sure to keep you toasty! The colour also means it will go with almost anything making it a great jacket to throw on if you have nothing else.short cape black

I then saw this short black cape. I love the look of this as it is so chic and is the type of jacket that would just really pull an outfit together.
Of course this wouldn’t be too good for those really bitter winter days but it would look lovely on those days where it’s just a little bit warmer.
I could also see a lovely outfit with this being worn over a crisp white shirt, with a pair of black jeans and black knee high boots (once I finally get myself a pair)!
handmade waistcoat beiege

I know, I know, am I really putting a waistcoat in this list? Yes I am! I know that this beige waistcoat will obviously not be very warm again on those bitterly cold days, however, I just love the look of these waistcoats. I already have one in black from Topshop and I will definitely be buying myself some more in various colours.
I just love how putting on of these on can really pull an outfit together.
Plus everyone knows that layers are the best thing about Autumn/Winter!
feather anorakThis black feather anorak is almost identical to the coat I bought from Zara last year. This one is just slightly shorter and without a belt round the middle. I picked this because I do think these slightly puffy jackets are great for the Autumn/Winter as they really do keep you so warm! I never feel cold when I’m in my last years Zara coat.
You also can’t go wrong with black, especially at this time of the year.

wtaerproof trench

As soon as I saw this trench coat I loved it, then I saw that it was waterproof and fell in love even more!
I already have a gorgeous trench coat from Ted Baker, however it is not waterproof and as we all know, especially at this time of year, it tends to rain a lot in Britain.
Therefore the idea of a waterproof trench coat really impresses me.
I think if I didn’t already have my lovely Ted Baker trench I would buy this in a heartbeat… A girl can still wish though right?
hooded cape navy

The last coat I spotted was this navy hooded cape
I like that this is thicker than the cape above as well as the fact it has a hood as it gives you that little bit extra warmth when wearing it!
I’ve been wanting a cape for ages now, in fact since last year, but never really found the right one for me. However I love this cape, and when I next pop into Zara, I will definitely try it on!

That is all for my Zara Coat Wishlist.
I’m sure there will be many coats from different brands that I will be crushing on but I thought I’d choose Zara for today as they always do coats just right!
What coat are you looking to buy for the autumn/winter?

Disney Store Wish List

Today I have taken a lot of inspiration from Elizabeth who’s blog I love and twitter I may occasionally stalk – in a good way of course!
She regularly posts different Disney Wish Lists and I loved seeing what she put in them, so thought, why not do my own?
I have decided to only feature products from the Disney Store, however in the future I will definitely do more Disney wish lists from a variety of shops.

So… You may notice I love mugs, let’s just get it out in the open! Yes, I love mugs, I drink lots and lots of green tea so I need a sufficient mug to drink it from… So yes there may be three mugs in this wishlist… Don’t judge me!

alice in wonderland mug

So let’s begin with a mug then! I love this Alice In Wonderland Mug.
It’s blue which is my favourite colour, it’s Alice In Wonderland themed (I’ve always had a thing for Alice In Wonderland, yes because of the matching names) AND it’s a huge mug!
There is nothing better than snuggling up to watch the TV with a nice big mug of your favourite hot drink!
minnie dressing gown

Okay, I may also have another obsession, dressing gowns! I own over 10 dressing gowns!
They’re just the comfiest things and as soon as Autumn hits I am instantly in one of them.
I absolutely adore this Minnie Mouse Dressing Gown, with the cute ears on the hood, the different Minnie Mouse details over it and the fact that it just looks so soft.
I think I may actually put this on my Christmas List (mum I hope you’re reading this!) and I can guarantee if I got this you would not be able to get me out of it.

minnie personalised mug So I have already asked my mum if she will get me this Minnie Mouse Mug for Christmas.
It’s another mug, yes, but it’s not just any mug! You can get it personalised which I absolutely l
Iove the idea of.I

princess snow globe

Isn’t this Princess Snow Globe just gorgeous?
I love how pretty it is and think it would look so lovely on a shelf in my bedroom.
As well as the fact it plays music, meaning I can dance around to lovely Princess music!minnie phone case
I actually need a new phone case for my iPhone, and I love this Minnie Mouse Phone Case.
I already have a couple of Disney case for my iPhone, but I also love this one.
I especially like the fact that the bow sticks out which makes it 3D, as well as it being holographic, meaning Minnie Mouse gives you a little wink when you move it!

minnie china muyg Last mug of the wishlist! Another Minnie Mouse Mug.
I love that the detail of this mug, I think it is so pretty and it is different to the normal Minnie Mouse merchandise.
It is also an especially large mug (which I really do love Disney for), so again it’s the perfect mug for having a cuppa in! mickey and minnie mouse slippers

The last thing on my Disney Store wish list is this cute pair of Minnie and Mickey Mouse Slippers.
Who doesn’t love a comfy pair of slippers for the winter? Especially if they’re Disney themed! These ones looks so cosy too!

That’s it for my Disney Store Wish List!
I’m going to start featuring more Disney Themed posts on my blog, because I really do love it!

How To Stay Healthy In An Office Job

Today I thought I’d write a post about how to stay healthy when you’re working in an office job.
I myself work in an office and I know it can be hard to eat well if you don’t prepare properly.
Just a quick disclaimer, I am in no way claiming to be a fitness and eating expert, these are simply some things I’ve learned whilst working, which I thought I’d put out there for you to read.

The first thing I will say is that preparation is key!
Get into the habit of making your lunch the night before. This will stop you from being tempted to buy food from a shop on your lunch break which is more than likely going to be something you can grab and go, which isn’t always the healthiest thing you can eat.

The next thing is to try not to have a snack drawer.
Whilst it is tempting to have a drawer full of goodies for when you get a little peckish, if you don’t have one, you’ll be removing the temptation and benefit overall.
However, it is important to have some form of snacks for the day.
Instead of gravitating towards chocolate, biscuits and sweets, try to go for some healthier options.
My favourite go to snacks are nuts, dried fruits (although be careful of the sugar in these), fresh fruit and vegetable sticks and hummus.

Eat Breakfast!
This one is a biggie! I cannot stress enough the importance of eating a filling breakfast.
Breakfast is the first meal of the day and ultimately the most important, which I’m sure you’ve heard many times but it still rings true.
A good breakfast will set you up for the day, giving you lots of energy and keeping you full for a good amount of time.
If you don’t have time to eat breakfast before you leave the house then make sure you have some when you get to work.
Everyday I make myself porridge in the office and eat it at my desk, and I can tell you now, the odd days that I don’t have breakfast really take their toll on me. I feel like I have no energy which really distracts me when at work.
So make sure you eat breakfast!

Another thing I’ll say is try to make sure you’re not sitting down ALL day.
I know this is hard if you have a lot of work to do which involves you sitting at your desk, however try to take little breaks and go for a walk.
Whether this is just to the toilet or to make yourself a drink, I just think it is really important not to be sat down all day.

The last thing I’ll say is to make sure you make time for exercise!
This is a no-brainer, everyone should make time for exercise whether they work in a office or not.
As well as the obvious health benefits of exercising, it is a great stress relief, so going to the gym or a run or a cycle will be great for destressing you after a stressful day in the office.
No one is too busy to exercise, so make time, you’ll feel better for it!

That’s it for today’s post.
Like I said, I am not claiming to be an expert on fitness or eating, I just thought I’d share some tips that I’ve learnt along the way, you by no means have to listen to what I’ve said!
