I ♥ Focco

Look what I got in the post yesterday!

After spying Laura's post on the white faux Wang Rocco bag, I did a little google and fell in love with the gray original. This led to me purchasing this number from eBay.

After ordering it I was tempted by the black, and thought I had made a mistake, as the eBay pictures make the gray look a little tacky. One look inside the envelope and I knew I was wrong. It is a perfect wear with anything colour, It is neutral, but not a harsh boring grey as it has a hint of lilac.

I also love the lining, a classic brown, with cream detailing.

It looks a bit funny when you first take it out the bag, but it hangs lovely when it's filled with all the junk everyday essentials we carry around.

I adore this bag, and I want one in every colour!

Which is your favourite?

I joined a gym!

Today was my first session at the gym I recently joined. Now, I have never really been into sort and exercise, but I really want to get healthy this year. When a new gym opened right by me, I jumped at a chance to join up, and you know what, I loved it! I will try and keep this updated with my progress so I can monitor it and keep going.

The numbers:
Today I weigh 9st6, and have a BMI of 25.7. I'm only 5ft tall so I need to keep my weight down. Ideally below 9st to keep me happy. I did 30 mins of cardio exercise (10mins treadmill, 10mins bike, 10mins cross trainer) and I felt brilliant after it. Going back tomorrow to see if I can remember how to use all the machines.

While I have been waiting for the gym induction I have been going swimming. I am also going to start the Get Running couch to 5K program via the app I downloaded an age ago. Would love to be able to run some sort of decent distance as I never have before.

If you feel good on the inside, you look good on the outside.

ASOS: watching the sales!

I was browsing the ASOS sale last week and I had a strange need to purchase a watch, or 4! Here they are, my current obsession seems to be watches and jewellery. Hopefully this means more accessory purchases, and less clothing purchases as I really need to sort out my wardrobe situation!

I love the contrast between gold and silver on this watch. 

Seem a little obsessed with boyfriend watches.
I also want this in gold

I got the rose gold watch with the black face as well
 And this heart ring

I'm loving ASOS recently since I bout the years free next day delivery for £14.99!

What are you current obsessions?

P20 = -/+

After returning from my holiday with a distinct lack of tan, and trying to justify this to a work colleague (burn to easy, apply sun cream about 50 times a day), she mentioned me trying P20. I had never heard the name, but once she described the product, I think I have heard of it.
Riemann P20 Once a Day 100ml
The idea of this product is basically, you apply it everywhere and it is supposed to last for 10 hours. This particular formulation is equivalent to spf20, however i know an spf10 version also exists. The reason this product is supposed to work so well is that it blocks 90% of the UVB rays (the ones that cause the burn).They also claim it is still 90% effective after water exposure, as it is extremely water resistant. It sounds a very interesting product, and there seems to be many a positive review floating around. 
My question is would you trust a suncream that you could apply once and leave all day? The idea is promising, no messy reapplications sounds like heaven. But, do I dare trust it?
