The amount of time it has been since I published a blog post, responded to an email or generally did anything that required me to move… or put any effort in at all unless I had no choice.
I’ve mainly been taking some time for me. I’ve read a book (The Chocolate Lovers Diet by Carole Matthews) which is usually unheard of, almost finished watching Grey’s Anatomy in it’s 13 series entirety and watched the final episode of Girls (we’re you as disappointed as me?!). Read more
One of these days I’ll get around to giving Little Miss Vista a fashion show of all the gorgeous pieces for my wardrobe I’ve thrifted over the past few months. The last thrifty fashion post I shared (you can read it here) was really well received and I LOVED producing it… but sadly I just don’t get the time to shop, style and shoot as much as I used to.
When it comes to thrifting items of clothing, I only have three rules:
1. It’s over a fiver it has to be *really* special. 2. No holes, no bobbles, no stains. 3. If I don’t have anything I can wear it with already in my wardrobe – put it back.Read more
Just lately, I am very aware of the fact that I haven’t been a great blogger. It’s not just my poor Life on Vista Street that I have been neglecting: My emails are mounting up by the day and I have a to do list as long as my arm.
And there in lie the joys of being a hobby blogger: there is no need to panic when life gets in the way. It just means that I’ll have more content when things calm down.
I just keep snapping away with my camera and sometimes am admittedly merrily distracted by box sets on Netflix and Bake Off (SIDE NOTE: Anyone else disappointed with the level of talent this year?! Few too many drama queens this year for me too). Read more
This isn’t the first weight loss related blog post I’ve written… I’ll bet it won’t be the last either. But with everything that has been going on just recently I’m finding it SO hard to keep going on my weight loss journey. As I write, the Cadbury brownie bites that I buy to factor into my syns are calling me from the fridge and I am willing myself to ignore them.
I’m all packed now but I’m still gathering bits and pieces together for the little one… I’ve been trying to pack her bag for a few days already.
Now that she is bigger I never know how many sets of clothes to take for each day. We are guilty of leaving her to be a little bit mucky rather than change her top every time she spills (bibs are now pointless). Little Miss Vista is also notorious for not being a good traveller.
Fingers crossed for a puke free journey – but on long distances we do tend to leave her in as few clothes as possible.
I’m figuring at lest one pair of leggings and one t shirt for each day we will be away from home, as well as the following items: Read more
