I’m in love with SWISHING PARTIES

I am in love with swishing party’s! A friend of mine hosted our first ever swishing party over the weekend and it was a great success.

Have no fear, a swishing party is totally different from a swinging party, you get to keep your clothes on!

Swishing is, like, totally trending on Twitter right now, and there are loads of stores and organisations who have jumped on the Swishing bandwagon.

So what is ‘swishing’ anyway? Glad you asked. Wikipedia definition here.  

It’s really just a street term for ‘swapping clothes’ (while drinking wine and gossiping.)

How does it work? It’s not rocket science. You get a friend to volunteer their place for an afternoon and then you go over with any clothes you don’t want to wear anymore. Perhaps you’re not ready to give the item to a charity store just yet, maybe you don’t want to cut the proverbial biblical chord to the point where you never see the item again. Perhaps you think it’s easier to part ways by giving it to a friend so you get to see it every now and then? It could be a belt, earrings, a bangle, a pair of shoes, an old coat, a shirt, you get the idea. 

It’s a great way to go shopping without any money every exchanging hands.

I feel like a fraud

Over the last few months I have blogged about gym, weight loss and healthy eating but yet I haven’t been following my own advice. I have only gone to gym once or twice a week, always having a sneaky sweet or packet of chips and then trying to appear to you all that sticking to this healthy lifestyle is easy.

I have felt so guilty about it that I’ve even stopped posting updates as often.

I think my first step to getting back on track is to admit my mistakes, come clean about my bad habits and then start taking steps back in the right direction.

Looking in to mirror this morning I could see how the past few months had changed my body already. I hadn’t got to my goal weight yet but I was still looking good and now I feel fat and frumpy. Tonight I went to my usual spinning class but pushed myself back into action.

It’s going to take one step at a time to get back on track but im not throwing all my hard work down the drain so I am going to make sure I get back to the motivated person I was a few months ago.

Fashion

 Who decides what’s fashionable or not?

I really want to have a word with them, because I really don’t feel that skinny jeans makes anyone look good unless you’re a size 2 with no hips or ass and have never done any sport in your life so that your calf muscles are super small.

I have been out shopping and must of tried on 100 pairs and none of them look good.

I have however found the best alternative, they look like skinnies to most people but don’t squeeze the life out of you. It’s almost guaranteed not to make you muffin top!!!

They are called straight cut Jeans, TRY THEM!!!!!
