Six weeks later…

Fitness HM The coup Fashion blog london adiyam elena 2015

It’s been six whole weeks since I last blogged – how absurd! I think it’s time I checked in with you guys…

So what has 2015 brought so far? A new job! I’m not too sure if I mentioned this to you earlier but in January I was due to start a new teaching role. It’s been hectic but all good so no complaints!

Something else that’s new is my fitness regime. Taking a page out of El’s book, I started working out with her trainer and since have seen some real results. My intention isn’t to lose weight; instead, I want to tone up and keep my curves. I like mixing it up and do 4 sessions a week which include a bit of Hot Yoga, running and a whole lot of weight lifting. I’m currently in love with H&M’s sportswear selection. Here’s some pieces I’ve picked out. In the gym, I like keeping things simple, and sport a lot of grey and blacks. Shocking for a colour fanatic like me right?

Speaking of coats, here is what I wore the other weekend. Ah how i love my rabbit fur coat! You first saw it here and now its back in a more casual look. Paired with my new Lacoste trainers it’s perfect for running errands on a frosty Sat morning.

PelloBello Fuzzies

pellobello_fur_jacket

I have seen a number of fashion bloggers wear these PelloBello fuzzy beauties. Aren’t they gorgeous?
It’s hard to find a good furry coat for a good price and these seem to tick both boxes. PelloBello coats are made to order and shipped from Sweden. What’s even better is that they come in short and long versions plus a lovely colour palate to choose from.

We’re a little late with our petit rendezvous over 2014. Looking back on it now though, it was such a good year for both of us. Today we simply want to thank you for continuing to follow our journey into bloggersphere. We’re looking forward to keeping you entertained this year, the next and hopefully those that will follow after that.

As always, all the best.

Happy Wednesday guys!

As you can see, I’m keeping it cool, calm and collected today in a simple pair of jeans and tee, matched with a faux fur coat and hat. The pop of colour on my nails are brightening up these grey January days and keeping me smiling for now.

What I wore to Office Christmas party

Unlike a lot of my colleagues I do love an office christmas party! It’s a perfect time to mingle with your friends, have a few drinks and perhaps talk to new faces that you’ve never had a chance to speak to. This year we had our Christmas get-together in a pub by Tower Bridge, so perhaps i was a little over dressed, but hey, it’s that time of year when you can get away with it!

zara-red-trf-dress

My Zara TRF dress with layered skirt is still available online, but now only in navy, which i think still makes it a banger of a dress!

Added to my Wardrobe: Skaters

fashion blog hm skaters shoes  copyMonday morning, meh!!

How are you guys doing? I hope you had a weekend full of goodness. It was a quiet one for me up until yesterday when me and a bunch of friends checked out Winterville in East London – the cool alternative to Central London’s Winter Wonderland. If you’re thinking of heading down there I suggest you do. The rides and mulled wine left me feeling not short of happy. To protect myself from the cold, I layered up and wore these felt skaters which have become somewhat a guilty pleasure of mine. I bought them about six weeks ago, the same day that I bought these python platforms, although Elena wanted them first. Vowing to check in before wearing them to meet up, we both bought a pair. I’ve lived in them ever since or, I’ll admit, since breaking them in. They were painful at first but fine now. I’ll pair them up for you soon :)

Grey Skater Sneakers – H&M (unavailable online I’m afraid. Soz!)

Cat Eye

IMG_02473Happy Friday everyone!

Cat-eye sunglasses have been popping up here, there and everywhere lately! Seems to be everyones favorite shape these days. Since I have a very long oval face cat-eye have always been my go to style for sunnies. I got this cute Kate Spade pair at Bicester village. I am also loving these sunglasses, below, can one have too many?

Outfit – Flowers and Feathers

topshop_feather_blouse_outfit

It feels so good to be back and blogging. Last couple of months have proven to be very busy, but I am happy that I can finally make time for blog, which i love!

topshop_feather_blouse_outfit

So this is what I wore to the office the other day. I absolutely adore this Topshop blouse in flower and feather print. Colours are very  autumnal which makes dressing it, for a colour-phobe like me, quite easy. I paired it with my shaggy H&M waistcoat, Topshop Moto jeans and over the knee boots.
