Life Lately | January 2014

As always seems to be the case at the beginning of a year, 2014 is flying in much faster than I would like and we have already waved goodbye to a rather dreary January and said hello to a… well, rather dreary February.

I’m not going to mention the weather, or the tube strikes or any of the other daily annoyances that seem to be clogging up my Twitter feed right now, mainly because working from home none of the above really bother me that much (I know, I’m annoying). Instead I’m enjoying February’s short appearance, looking forward to another fashion week and dreaming ahead to March, the month of Spring (let’s hope), new fashions and my birthday! But before I get carried away planning too far in advance there’s time for a bit of a January catch up.

Here’s some of what I got up to last month as seen through my Instagram lens…

Life…
Tried to get myself back into a post Christmas fitness regime and forced myself out running, tried out the 5:2 diet, wrote my 2014 to-do list, lunched at Honest Burgers with friends (on non fast days of course), celebrated my four year blog birthday, marvelled at how pretty London is at night, visited Edinburgh for my friends Hen Party, and learned how to make tasty cocktails.

Fashion…
Debuted my first pair of OTK boots, got acquainted with Chatty feet’s friendly sock collection, became an Access all ASOS insider, learned to deal with my blog troll and ‘love’ my curves, had fun with outfit posts, enjoyed wearing all of my NYC purchases from shiny trainers to statement heels, combated the grey days with maximum sparkle and shine through my Bebaroque tights.

Food… 
Reminisced about New York Mac and Cheese and oversized breakfasts, made fruity Pavlova to make up for taking sugar out of my tea.

Me…
Felt all grown up in my new & Other Stories coat, attempted the half tuck hairdo without much success, adopted a fail safe ‘working from home’ look, and then similarly a fail safe ‘out at meetings’ look, totally adored my ASOS jewelled headband, reached for the stars with my leg wear, got back into wearing earrings, discovered that my BHS bag could fit my camera in it and proceeded to wear it everywhere, and channelled laid back luxe with my new boots.

So that was a few snippets of January in my little life, all photos from my Instagram. You can follow me in real time @bumpkinbetty.

Hope you had a great start to the new year!
