Let's get physical

Here's my first-round up of healthy links, tips, articles and advice I've come across this week.

Dark and Stormy

Recently I seem to have developed a bit of an obsession for dark camo-esque combinations. It might be something to do with the freezing weather in Melbourne at the moment and the fact that I am thoroughly over Winter and it's overshadowing my tastes, or it could just be that I really love my new J Crew cashmere sweater in navy and I'll find any excuse to wear it.

Whatever the reason, as the clouds rolled in last Saturday I was drawn to this navy and khaki combo; a humble nod to the slightly military inspired look I seem to be lusting over at the moment.

Let's get physical

I spend quite a bit of time browsing the internet and magazines for information on nutrition and fitness tips. Whilst of course there are times when exercise feels like nothing more than a chore, in general I do enjoy keeping active. I'm a much nicer person when I fit some kind of exercise into my daily/weekly routine and I also believe it is incredibly important to look after your body and (as naf as it sounds) treat it with respect. I have seen first-hand the painful and detrimental effects an unhealthy lifestyle can have on a person's health and life and I hope never to see someone close to me in that state again. Although you can't help what illnesses may befall you, you can do your best to arm your body with its best form of defence.

Classic treasure

Over the course of this blog you'll hear me talk about how simple my style is. I always go for plain basics and more often than not you'll find a plain grey, white or black tee is at the foundation of my outfit. I'm certainly never going to win any awards for most outrageous fashion decision and the same goes for my weekend uniform, which tends to be fairly predictable.

Too early for shorts?

Oops too late...

I popped into Seed for a harmless browse at the weekend (actually that's a lie, I went to find a pair of shoes I know they are about to get in and I am mildly obsessed with-more on those another time) and somehow came out with a pair of summer shorts.

Bling a ring ding

My most recent purchase was a total impulse buy but I'm so glad I went for it as I have been wearing it so much I am now finding myself trying to come up with reasons not to wear it. I know.

Alice McCall necklace $40
J Crew cashmere jumper $150 (another sale buy-sorry no direct link!)
