Hello! Welcome back! It's been about two months since I blogged - the break was intentional because October and November are typically insane months for me and this year so no different. At all.

Outfit of the day // Letterman Jacket
I have always loved letterman jackets. Probably because I grew up watching every US TV show set in a highschool... When I finally found this one, years ago, on ASOS I was so happy.

Running for fun
Here's something I never thought I'd say; I've been running for fun. Don't get me wrong, it's also for fitness because I'm a chubby bunny, however, it's only recently I've hit my stride (oh-Ho) with the whole running mentality. When I first got into running I was doing it like everyone else does; timing, distance, … Continue reading Running for fun
