Weight Loss Update

Hey everyone I thought I would give you a little update on how my weight loss has been going it has been a little while since my last one.
If you follow me on Instagram you are probably really bored of seeing all my Slimming World posts. I have to admit it has taken over my life slightly, but you know what, I really don't mind.
Last night I achieved my 2 and a half stone award and I have to say I am pretty proud of myself. Not only that but I have dropped 2 jean sizes and bought my first pair of skinny's. I am feeling much more confident in the way that I look and dare I say I feel quite pretty more often than not!
Over the last 4 or 5 weeks I have included a lot more exercise into my new lifestyle, this includes a Tap dancing class (if you can believe it) and plenty of Zumba which when you are 2 stone lighter is much easier and a lot more fun to do.
 At my Goddaughters 1st birthday recently I was playing with my cousin William who is 2 and a half I picked him up to give him hug goodbye and was surprised at how heavy he had gotten. I asked his dad how much he weighted and he said the he was 2 stone. I can't tell you how much satisfaction I got from actually being able to not only see, but feel how much weight I had lost I felt super proud of myself and it really just spurred me on to do much better and loose even more.
I am still pretty far off my goal weight but I am hoping by my Birthday next year (26th March) I will reach my target weight and what a birthday present that will be.
My aim this year was to really concentrate on Me and My needs and and put Me first for once so far so good.

Whats in My Bag 2014

I haven't done a Whats in my bag post since August 2011 so I thought it was about time I updated you all. What I have noticed since the last post see it here is my bag is bigger but I still carry around with me the same amount of stuff just a little different and updated here goes...

My Bag is from Zara I love it, it has a fury front pocket! It was a Christmas present to myself for being so organised and staying in budget this year. Ironically buying this bag pushed me over budget but hey ho! It's just so pretty! Unfortunately it is no longer available but it was £39.99
The contents of my Bag minus my iPad which is what I use take my Photos with. There is a whole lot more floral than I thought it there was!
 My make-up bag which actually contains more than just make-up, stuff like deodorant, lip balm, pain relief in various forms, dental floss, tampons, tissues, perfume, hair bands, bobby pins, safety pins and a teeny tiny tooth brush.

Hand sanitiser from Primark, Nail file in a cute little case, Cath Kidson compact mirror, Bambi tin which contains more pain killers, Beautiful Lips lip gloss in shade 22, La Roche-Posay Barrier repairing balm and Dr Lipp Original nipple balm for lips and finally my Tangle teaser.
My more practical side, a pen, my Slimming world pack, blogging diary, pad (which matches the pen), gloves because it's frickin cold at the moment, sugar free rhubarb and Custard drops from Marks and Spencer (they are delicious) Business cards (I make greeting cards to order ) Diary, Purse from Primark, Primark do brilliant purses and I think it was £5 the have just the right anount of slots and pockets, Hi-Fi bar, House and car keys with my little tardis keyring I also have a toy story house key!, Ear phones and finally My phone last week I upgraded from a iPhone to a Samsung Galaxy 4S and I love it no regrets!
 My iPad sadly this goes everywhere with me I love the quality of the picture it takes and It basically contains my life!

I hope you enjoyed my little tour around my Handbag, I love these kind of posts, it's the nosy Parker in me so if you have done one please leave me a link in the comments so I can check it out x
