Another challenge Day 3 #BEDM

Today I accepted a new challenge. A friend of mine posted an album on facebook with the text "30 day chalenge of wearing dresses and skirts."
I commented ; ‘Sounds cool’ and before I knew it, she challenged me to do the same.
And I decided to accept. I don’t have a lot of dresses and skirts but I’m going to give it a try anyway.
I used to love wearing dresses / skirts to church. Nice long ones. But I don’t have a lot of those anymore.
And today when I looked through my wardrobe, deciding what to wear, I realized that a lot of dresses / skirts actually needed to be washed so the best I could do was to wear a short dress with a legging. It's not my favourite way to wear a skirt or dress but I sometimes do.
So after taking a shower and co-washing my hair, that is what I put on.




It is the same dress that I had on last Summer when the girls and I were in Romania. Only then I was a few kilograms lighter.




I realized that accepting this challenge also meant, that I would have to really try and do my best more with my hair and make -up. A lot of days, I leave the house without looking in the mirror, just grabbing a top and a pair of pants to put on. Now since part of this challenge is to take a picture of you in the outfit and I would like to look a little nice on the pictures, that is not going to do anymore.
It actually felt good to do and I guess it was time that I started to make more effort to look representable on a daily basis. So I am really happy with this challenge.

Did you recently accept some kind of challenge ? (other than BEDM) What do you think about the 30 day dress/ skirt challenge ?

Love and blessings,

The skirt/dress challenge would truly be a challenge for me to but it's good to switch things up every now and then I suppose!

Just dropping by from BEDM.

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.






Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.
I still have a s…

What Kids Wore Wednesday; Kitty love (day 11)

Ir's Wednesday so it's time for another Kids outfit post. As I mentioned in my last What Kids Wore Wednesday post, Nevaeh really loves bunnies a lot and she loves clothes with bunnies on them. In the same way Yovannah really loves cats and clothes with cats on them. We mostly buy clothes from H & M because they have cute items of reasonable quality and low prices and we had gotten a gift card from H & M a while back so we are used to shopping there.
They happen to have a lot of cats and bunnies in their collection for some reason, so the girls could not be more pleased with shopping there. They get to pick their own clothes so when Yovannah saw this cute black skirt, she really had to have it. I love it too. It is made out of ‘leather look’ fabric and it has this cute face on it and on the top of the skirt there are two ears sticking out.
In the pictures she is wearing it with a blue/grey-ish top with a cat on it and dark grey tights with a black stripy pattern on t…
