Overhaul Inspiration!


Hello gorgeous!

I hopped on the scales this morning and was rewarded with a little bit less showing up than last time, so I'm super happy! I'll save the details 'till my Slimming Into Summer update on Monday though :D.

I've just had a lovely breakfast of low fat hash browns with a teaspoon of syrup on the side as a treat (only 110 calories per plate :o), and I'm about to go on a run when I've finished this - I'm feeling really energised and can't wait to get out there!
After that I have another thrilling day of Land Law in-front of me, and this is by far my most jam packed day yet. I have 3 topics to get through, which is the equivalent of around 3 months work :/. Once I'm done though I'm hoping that I can finally get round to opening a new book and snuggling on the sofa with a Cadbury's Options :D

I thought I'd show you some inspiration that I've been loving that's spurring me on with my image/lifestyle change. Once I've lost all the weight that I want I'm going to focus on toning up, and then the fun stuff starts. Hair, nails, tan (from a cheeky week away) and hopefully a few new things added into my wardrobe in celebration!

I love the top look as an everyday kind of sultry look, and the bottom as a holiday/summers day fun look.

I would wear either of these on holiday, but the bottom one especially to somewhere abroad. It would look great with a stack of brightly coloured bracelets on your writs. I'll probably go for the top look when it's my visit to London and Cornwall, fun, girly and with a bit of sparkle <3

I want to go a little lighter with my hair through highlights, I also love Gretchen's fringe in this pic, and the jumper in the top one <3

How pretty is that skirt? I need to find it - I really like the top it's with too! I can't wait to be able to buy some colourful clothes for summer and my holidays, and for them to be a bit more revealing than usual. I'd normally never get any kind of midriff out, but I'd love to do it in a subtle way like this!

This one might surprise you, I want my tummy button pierced. I used to have a lot of piercings, my most unusual being my hips. But now I only have my ears done once, and one other piercing. I know it's a love or hate thing, but I think with a tan, a little dainty crystal bar would look lovely! (I'd also like to get my nose done again)
I also love the outfit in this picture, I love the concept of a thick jumper being worn in a summery way.

And finally, I really want to keep it up with my health kick. I don't want to reach my target and let it go, I want this to be a real lifestyle change. I'll obviously allow myself more treats than now when I'm actively trying to lose weight, but I want to keep up running, even on holiday, and make sure I'm still eating healthily. No junk is going into my body at 2am in the morning on the way back from a bar!

Hope you're having a great day,
Lea

    1. I love to experiment with colour, but I'll admit that I gravitate to neutrals when I'm not really thinking about it. I'd love to try the MUA pastels pallet, I think it looks awesome for a bit of colour without it being too in your face :) x
