What I Wore… 5th November 2014

I have transitioned one of my Zara summer dresses into a winter option!!! Go me! And I’ve done it by using my thickest jumper… a navy Fishermans jumper from COS , worn tights and my black boots from New Look. I also had on my scarf and parka from Miss Selfridge which helped a lot.

For hair and makeup I put on mascara and dabbed on a thin coat of Rio Rio Topshop lipstick, twisted to front sections of hair and tied them together at the back.

Is anyone else still trying to get the most out of their summer clothes?

I am Breaking Down…

So I’ve had a problem with doing exercise recently. When I came back from Holiday at the end of August I managed to rip my intercostal muscles (the ones in-between your ribs) when picking up my hand luggage to chuck it in the boot! They healed up i.e. stopped hurting when I walked and breathed but they never fully healed I could still feel they weren’t back to normal when I twisted or if I did a jerky/unexpected move and when I go for runs they rip again and its back to square one. This is my third time ripping them and this has definitely been the worst not for pain but for the time they have taken to get to that base healing place.

This time I am swearing off running until I can twist with no pain or stiffness and I have found a couple stretches that will hopefully help me along the way;

It is always worse in the morning, they seem to stiffen up over night and then I have to work them out a bit before they ease up and it’s a manageable awkwardness but since doing these before bed it is sooooo much better in the morning. I’ve also started taking ibuprofen before I go to bed and that seems to have an effect in the morning too. The GP I went to see when I first did it recommended taking ibuprofen to keep the pain at bay and to take down any swelling.

I’ve watched a couple videos now and they say when it first happens you should ice, ice, ice and then once the immediate pain has gone away start heating them up to help the muscles heal which I have totally been doing, thank god I got given that mini hot water bottle for xmas last year!

Anyway fingers crossed I am moving in the right direction and can get back to running soon because, weirdly, I actually miss it.

What I Wore… 4th November 2014

It is cold!!!! My hands were frozen when I got to the tube this morning but my feet were nice and toasty in my shearing lined Topshop boots and yeh I may be rubbing it in a little seeing as I got soggy, soggy feet in the downpour yesterday! I am wearing boots with my Asos blue jeans, my Topshop black love jumper and my Zara jewel collar white vest.

For hair and makeup I kept it real simple and just put on mascara and Rimmel by Kate Moss 107 lipstick. I took a front section of hair and gave it a gentle twist and then pinned with the short side of the Kirby grip going closest to my head.

I hope you all kept warm too!
