Quiz Occasionwear

Time for something a little bit different. Those of you who have followed me for a while know that while I identify as a fitness blogger, I am a sucker for nice clothes. I also have a wedding to go to later this summer, which is always an excuse for a fabulous new outfit. I was recently contacted by Quiz Clothing, who have recently launched a line of occasionwear. They asked me if I would like to try some of the range – but with a difference. I was going to be asked to select… View Post

What does the fitness blogger wear on …

When I’m not wearing lycra for running or swanning about in vintage style dresses, I tend to dress down. We like to take the toddler out for walks and adventures in the park to keep her active, so I usually like to be comfortable, but still (hopefully) stylish. As it gets cooler, I also like to wrap up warm, but being a sweaty betty, I also like cardigans and things that are easy to layer and sling on and off. Plus, when the toddler is being demanding and insisting we have to leave NOW, something… View Post
