Merry Boxing Day! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas! I got some lovely pressies - mostly photography stuff as I've done Photo A Day every day for the last year and hope to continue next year. It's not easy to take self portraits though with a Nikon D60 but I'm going to try and nag my other half to help me do a bit more of OOTD in 2012 too. I did get one fashiony present though - look! I now own my very own Ugg boots! I've worn Primarni crap ones every other year - this year I did buy some fab black flat boots in the US but nothing compares to sinking your toes into real sheepskin....NOW I see what all the fuss is about. My mum gave them to me - she'd bought them in Florida for herself but thinks her feet were swollen that day as they were too big for her. Hoorah for me! They're slightly tight but I think they'll give a bit as I wear them. And I will be wearing them!

A couple of snaps and a resolution to blog more!

The wonderful Claire at Monkey Fatshionista is organising the second London Bloggers Meetup - Plus London Two and I really want to go - I read all about it last year and, having met a few of the wonderful women who write such amazing blogs, I'm hoping I get to go! One thing you need to be is a blogger - and though I started this back in September, I've been rubbish at posting on it. My life is a bit chaotic! So here's an attempt to keep posting - a couple of outfits - a sparkly purple top I haven't worn for ages as it made me look pregnant....but now it sits much nicer - (not a great pic though)
I wore it to a Netmums Christmas gathering last night and it was great - very festive and lots of sushi!

I've lost quite a bit of weight this year, mainly to get healthier - I got diagnosed with Type II diabetes in November 2010 and was told if I lost weight it would probably go as I was only just over the normal blood sugar limit. Well 43lbs off since then and it has! Hoorah! I feel a lot better too. But I'm still a big girl and I love that the other fatshion blogs I read inspire me to dress better!

Second pic is a top my friend Clare gave me since she's also lost a load of weight. It's a boden top - I've never worn Boden before so I'm not sure - it feels a bit tight and it's horizontal stripes which my brain keeps shouting "NO" at me - but I like it -I like the length. Not sure though so anyone if you're reading this - whaddya think?
