Fashion related (and totally non-fashion related) things that have made my world go round over the last seven days…
- The Bath Half. I ran my first half marathon today. My body aches, I have blisters that could rival Simon Pegg’s in Run Fatboy Run and I didn’t quite make the time I wanted, but I did it! It was an amazing event to take part in, a gloriously sunny day and the people of Bath who lined the streets to cheer us on were fantastic. What blows my mind is that today was just another training session for those taking part in the London Marathon this April! I know there was also a 10k event in Bristol today, so congrats to anyone and everyone who took part in these events.
- Bristol Blogger Meet. ‘Blogging events shouldn’t just be about goodie bags and outfits – what about networking and just having a pint?!’ This pretty much sums up Hayles of Ceriselle’s reason for holding a blogger meet for local folks, which I went along to on Friday evening. Kicking back in Start The Bus to chat about life, blogging and everything in between was great, plus I got to meet Hi Street and Martina too. Hopefully the next time will be at Bristol Fashion Week – exciting stuff!
- Moving house. I mentioned in my last RTW post that Mr Ship-Shape and I had decided to buy a house (eek!) and we moved in this week. It’s been a hard slog, especially as we’ve had to juggle it with work, a broken boiler and the half marathon, but we’re in now and I can’t wait to start decorating.
- Outfit post tutorials. When Mr Ship-Shape isn’t around, I take my own outfit shots using the self timer on my camera. It’s hard work, but Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky makes it look easy! Fortunately she’s been kind enough to share her tips, which I spotted on Harriet’s Lazy Sunday Links this afternoon.
That’s my (mostly non) fashion ramblings for the week. Normal blogging service to resume shortly : ) What has been rocking your world this week? Let me know by commenting below….
