Summer, Sun and Maxi Dresses!

Hi Everyone,

it's finally warm, which means summer, sun and lots of Maxi Dresses! Here's what I've been up to in the last two weeks:

Mostly, I've been working, so nothing extremely interesting has happened, but on Friday this week, I had a really fun social at work. We all went for a picnic in the park, with lots of drinks, food and games. I really enjoyed getting to know everyone a little better outside of work, and am looking forward to more of the same experiences.
I recently got voted onto the company's social committee, along with two others. The three of us get to decide on what socials the company has, and when. I'm quite excited about this, as I love organising events and things like that.

Moving on, I've been going for a run with my colleagues every Wednesday for 3 weeks now, which has been great. I'm starting to build up endurance (and leg muscles!!)! I've forgotten how much I love running, but have started to run by myself as well. I've already managed to run 3 miles, which I know isn't that much, but I haven't been running in 5 years, so 3 miles after only 4 runs in the last 3 weeks is not too bad, I think.

I've decided to set aside a small chunk of my salary this month, for some serious shopping. I'm thinking of going shopping next week, as I really want a nice maxi dress. If anyone has any suggestions as to where I can find nice maxi dresses (which actually reach the floor!), please feel free to comment! - I found a gorgeous one last year and am gutted I didn't buy it, as I can't find anything near as nice now...

Prints and styles similar to the ones pictured below are what I'm looking for:
AX Paris Maxi Dress
AX Paris Floral Maxi Dress

Glamorous Maxi Dress
Glamorous Border Print Maxi Dress

Anyway, that's all from me today, hoping everyone is having a lovely, sunshine filled weekend!

As Always, Stay Tuned!

Summer Fashion

Hi Everyone,

so the sun is finally out, and the short sleeved shirts and sunglasses have made an appearance.
I've been looking at the gorgeous summer fashion for this year, and am still looking for the perfect summer dress. Last year I was unable to find something because, for some reason, the browns and beige's did not really take my fancy.

This year, however, it's all colours, and bright colours at that, so inspiration is striking and I'm loving the different styles, meaning I will have a difficult time trying to decide on what I'd like to buy. Here are some examples of what I fancy:

New Look Dress
New Look


Zara Dress

The above three dresses are just some of the types of dresses I've been looking at, and really wanting to buy! I do actually have a dress which is pretty similar to the one by Zara, but I just love those types of dresses - they are so cute!

Anyway, this is all from me today, as it's time to enjoy the sun!

As Always, Stay Tuned!

Chilli Shots and Recent Occurrences

Hi Everyone,

So in recent occurrences, I went to Vodka Revolution's on Saturday, and drank a few chilli shots - those are really spicy! I decided to be "clever" and put one into my cocktail, thinking the spice would be masked by the cocktail....but no - my entire cocktail turned spicy. Needless to say, lesson learned!

Anyway, all in all it was a good night out, met some cool people and have decided to try and organise a lunch with a few of the girls I met - thought it would be good to just catch up with the girls, without the men around!

Anyway, today is a bank holiday in the fabulous land of the Brits, and I get to relax all day long whilst the boyfriend (who works in retail) is at work!

I've decided to start training for a 10k run with some colleagues at work. Some of them are run a 10k race very soon - I don't actually want to run that, but I do want to train with them so I can get fit and increase my exercise again. I actually stopped exercising for a while because I've been so tired from work, but now that I've settled into my routine, it's time to get back onto that horse because I do really want to lose some more weight.

It's only a short entry from me today, as I've not got too much inspiration going on today.

However just a quick note to those of you adding me on Google+ (see previous post) - I've had to change the name appearing on my profile as "anonymous" doesn't comply with Google policy, so I've chosen a pen name (Amy Mines) which is currently being reviewed by Google. Just letting you know so there's no confusion when adding me! :)

As Always, Stay Tuned!
