polka dots and crosses



cross: forever 21
jeggings: primark

Today is one of those days where I really cant be bothered to do anything. Like seriously I haven't moved from my bedroom apart from to get coffee, pick my mum up from work and answer the door to the postman. Living the dream hey! Im a really self motivated person most of the time, Give me a task and a time frame and I'll do it, But today, pah. Nothing! I have another deadline on Friday which I completely forgot about/havent started, Looks like tonight will be a all nighter!

Im itching to go back to the gym, but I tweaked my knee running and its still giving me a bit of a niggling pain so I really don't want to push myself quite yet. I'll give it a few more days and ease myself back in! Bikini body time is running out! I did actually manage to find a highwaisted bikini I liked in the end, well I improvised with a polka dot top I got from Primark for about £4 and some high wasted bottoms that were recommended to me from H&M, which were about £3 too. I might do a photo of me in it, I'm not unconfident in my body at all, but there is something about wearing a bikini that in my eyes should only be revealed in a country far far away from anyone you know!

Anyway I've just talked crap in this post, but nothing like a ramble hey!

  7. Love love looooove that top.
    Know what you mean about it being weird to post a pic in a bikini, I guess because unless you're in a holiday snap it'd feel like you were stood there in your underwear for all your blog followers to see.
    Maybe take a pic of just the bikini? Or share your holiday photos when you're back? :)

  15. I love the top and the cross! I hope your knee recovers and feels better soon, I tweaked mine like a loong time ago (4 years) and it still hurts :( so I have to be careful when I work out, otherwise I keep hurting it but I hate doctors so I don't think I'll ever go see one to take a look at it.

  18. Such a sweet top Lily. My Tesco has become really awfully stocked since I came back from Uni ): Not gonna lie, all I've done today is sit in our massage recliner with a coffee and my phone. Oh to be a student! Hope your knee sorts itself out soon, I used to 'damage' (well not really!) my knee ALL the time at dance classes and it's awful! xx

  19. Definitely understand what you mean about the Gym. I want to start again but I keep leaving it, I've said I will start in the summer. Let's see if that happens. Also, everybody has those days where you need a bit of break, it's just a sign that you've been working hard :)

  22. There should be days where you just relax and do nothing! They're great to source energy for upcoming activities. You did well! And tonight you might get a total energy kick who knows, haha!
    Don't push yourself to the gym before it's completely healed!

    I'm sending you some motivation for tonight's work :D

  23. Looks great! I know what you mean about the bikini thing, my friend recently got a hot tub and invited us all round to go in it...it was so awkward one by one all going into the bathroom to change into our bikinis haha although on holiday it's completely fine! x

  24. The polka dot shirt is lovely, I remember Tesco from the Last time I was in England, the thought they would someday sell nice clothing never crossed my mind.
    I've been looking for either highwaisted bikini bottoms or a one pice, since I don't particularly like to tan I'm leaning more and more to the one piece.
