Bridesmaid fears

Number one fear? Fitting in a dress. I love the bride to be so much. Both her and her betrothed mean the world to me and I’m so excited and honoured to be up front and centre on their special day.

But I’ll admit the picking of a dress terrifies me.

Wedding shredding

While I don’t completely agree with the idea of a crash diet to be slimmer on your wedding day, compared to any other day, I do understand that looking and feeling your best becomes a bigger priority on such occasions. Photos that you’ll have for ever and all that…

Girls trip! Corfu!

Last year Phil bought his dad tickets to watch the golf up north near his home town, leaving me with no plans for over a week in the middle of July. When this realisation hit me this year, I quite quickly decided, fuck this, and after discussions with my pals, Eileen and Toni, we booked the most amazing resort in Corfu, Greece. Yes, that photo above IS OUR RESORT. Beach, tick. Pool, tick. Loungers and cocktails. BIG FUCKING TICK. We’ve booked three nights in mid July, hoping for hot, hot sunshine. Suffice to say, Phil was left a tad miffed that he was missing out on a beach resort holiday. But we still have North America coming… more on that later…

The best part about this resort is that it is ADULTS ONLY. So many beach holidays I’ve been on in July/August leave you surrounded by children. I love kids, but not when I want to sip my cocktail, read my book or get my boobs out so as to avoid tan lines.

Cachow! I mean, she looks fucking amazing. #bodygoals

The plan of attack now is to eat salads and hit the gym, so when I come to put on my new bathing suit, it looks as good as bloody possible.

What’s to do in Corfu? Well apart from getting a tan and reading a couple of books, we have inquired around some diving and snorkelling excursions. We’ll also have a wander around the town and test out the restaurants. But mostly I think we’re all in agreement on relaxing by the pool or on the beach. Even though we all travel to new spots every couple of months, it’s very rare to have an actual break and a holiday where you relax. Most of the time you’re out walking about and sight seeing – which I love – but sometimes you just want to do nothing and actually switch off. After our most recent adventure together, I envisage the weekend to just be a load of laughs and future stories to tell.

Weekend pamper sesh in Berkshire

This weekend the girls (Eileen and Toni) and I decided to spoil ourselves for Eileen’s dirty thirty birthday. We booked ourselves into the Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa in beautiful Berkshire. I flippin’ love a pamper session and promptly booked myself a full body massage and a top notch pedicure. Because, hey, I work hard. Well, I work. I mean, I turn up.

In the end it felt like we spent the weekend at Fawlty Towers

“Today I’m channeling Meghan Markle goes to yoga.”

This was my outfit description I gave to my good friend, Eileen, on my way to meet her for our Saturday of adventure. We had booked brunch and a free meditation class that Eileen had heard about from Lululemon, so the plan was to rock some casual yoga pants and black trainers, with a top, scarf, coat and shades for a hint of celeb style. If you’ve been reading up about Meghan and Prince Harry – you’ll notice the paps seem to only get her when she’s in her yoga pants on the way to a class.
