This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀
⠀
This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

My Lent Challenge: Giving up chocolate and Pepsi Max

 I don’t usually participate in a lent challenge, but I been a bit comforting eating lately, so I decided this year, I thought why not?

When it comes to those kinds of challenge where you must give something up for a short period, I usually ignore them as I know I would be rubbish at them.

So why the hell am I doing lent, if I know from the beginning I’d be rubbish at it? Well, I’m not doing it for any religious reason – but to challenge myself and to re-organize my diet. And I must admit I do like a challenge when there is money at stake. Richard reckon I won’t last – I say I will so we put a bet on and if I don’t crack before lent end I win £100, sound simple enough?

I’m participating in lent to win a bet and also a chance for me to re-organize and sort out my diet. What I mean by this is that throughout Lent, I’m giving up chocolate and Pepsi max.

Ok, no real big sacrifice, but If you been reading this blog for a while, then you know I bloody love chocolate. I won’t go into details on how much I’m a chocoholic, but I could quite happily swim in a sea of it.

So yeah, this is a big deal and for a chocoholic like myself, it not going to be easy to go without it for some time.

The other thing I’m giving up is Pepsi Max, which if you don’t know me, you’ll think it an odd choice but I am addicted to it. Last year I would drink one bottle every single day, then realize I have a problem, so I switched to every other day. I became addicted to its caffeine content, and if I were feeling sleepy mid-afternoon, I would drink a bottle to keep me going.

I concluded that it wasn’t doing me any good, so it just better to go cold turkey and add it to part of my lent challenge.

Overall, along with overeating chocolate and drinking too much Pepsi Max, my diet has been comforting eating, and I needed to get a handle on it.

For the next 40 days, I will be doing my lent challenge, so wish me luck, and I will let you know how I get on by the end of it.

Anyone else doing their own lent challenge?

More photos are on my Instagram.

    I would have a hard time giving up chocolate for lent or no lent! Chocolate one of my faves and is the one thing that really helps me out with my migraines that I get daily.
    Good luck to you for not eating chocolate!
    Let me know at the month-end how you did!
