Spring is here so I've embraced the season with pastels even though it continues to rain!  I feel fresh and summery and I'm still managing to keep warm. I've teamed my Velvet pink sweat with these uber trendy Levi's 501 CT jeans, these are a season 'must have' if you can get them, they sell like hot cakes!! 
I bought this By Malene Birger coat last year for a wedding, worn with a cream dress it looked elegant and smart but I love the fact that I can now wear it dressed down with jeans, that's what I call economising!!  Mango does a similar one for a fraction of the price.
You can't go wrong with a Grenson brogue!
As you know by now I love to accessorise, this scarf works well with pastels or navy, also it's a lovely sarong on holiday! 
My lovely friend gave me the Balenciaga cuff, a real treat for my 50th!

A Juicy Snapshot

Beetroot concoction 

Can you imagine how surprised I was when RP, my husband, suggested a week in Portugal at a JUICE retreat.... blimey I really thought he'd gone mad!

But to my delight we went, climbed the mountain, had colonics, drank the juice, got the t-shirts (and the books) AND most importantly came away feeling fabulous!

The day for me began at 6.20am with a swim in the lake with Janet, the most wonderful yoga teacher. Followed by yoga, a hike ( RP joined me at this point) and on our return we were greeted with our first juice of the day.... and wow this tasted good! All this and it was only 10.30am!! Then... exercise, juice, yoga, rest, juice, colonic, yoga, soup and bed!!

This was a hard but a fantastic week that energised me, cleansed me and really made me think about the home I live in.... my body!
