I have had a pretty quiet week this week, I've been stuck indoors writing a few essays which hasn't been much fun at all. On monday I started the 30 Day Shred DVD which is hard work, but totally worth it I think. I have been super unfit for so many years and I'm so bored of getting out of breath over the smallest things. I have no excuse to be so lazy so I decided it was finally time to do something about it. It feel ten times more difficult in the hot weather though!

I applied to join one of those blogger collectives recently & even worse than just being plain rejected, they haven't responded at all. Maybe they've just not had the time but it's a bit dejecting. I find that this is something that happens a lot in all walks of life and I honestly think that a polite rejection is a million times nicer than no response at all. But anyway, I'm over sweating the small stuff and I've decided to just keep on keepin' on. I was doing alright over here on my own anyway so that's how things are going to stay for now. It's reignited my love for blogging & I would love to know what you would like to see more of. I'd love if you left me a comment below this post, emailed me, or let me know over here on my little survey page. I would really appreciate all suggestions!

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend in the sunshine & don't forget that sunscreen!


  1. The jumper with the rabbit and the moustache on is so cute. I have the 30 day shred but haven't attempted it yet lol Jillian Matthews scares me.


  2. Do what YOU want to do Jennie!

    I applied to one of those collectives, thought I'd been rejected but actually they just didn't make contact until they had a project to work on. Don't worry! Your blog is beautiful <3

  3. Ooh I adore the colour of your glitter bow, Jennie! I have a dark grey/black one which I love, but the blue is so pretty (: hope you've been enjoying the sun, your homemade coleslaw looks perfect for this weather! xx

  4. The rabbit jumper is so sweet!

  5. I've also been utterly in love with the Caudalie Elixir, it has worked a treat at keeping me refreshed and glowing in the heat! :-)

    Don't worry about the lack of rejection lovely, you have such a loyal readership and a gorgeous blog - focus on enjoying what you write and photograph :-)

    Jem xXx

  6. your rabbit is beyond cute!

    I just started up a blog, so have a look if you'd like. I'm currently doing a little topshop voucher giveaway to get going :)


  7. I got rejected from one of those blogger things too (i didn't have enough monthly hits) and I haven't tried contacting any other ones since then! You know you're one of my faves, and it's *them* that are missing out! xxx

  8. Your blog is lovely - any blogger collective would be lucky to have you!

    Ps you rabbit is sooo cute, I've got one too! Might post a cheeky pic of him on my blog soon :)

    Kate xx


  9. Your blog is awesome and they're the ones missing out!
    I've had the 30 day shred lying around for a while but I can't bring myself to try it, and now I'm using the heat as my excuse!


  10. That bunny moustache jumper is amazing! :) xx

  11. I know what you mean about preferring a polite decline instead of nothing at all, I hate not knowing! I think it's plain rude if they don't even bother to respond anyway. I'd like to do the 30 day shred..but I think I'd probably just die with all the exercise!! You'll have to let us know how it goes :)

  12. Hey, I'm a new reader but I just wanted to let you know I think you're blog is awesome! And I lvoe the 30 day shred as well :D

    Emma :)

  13. Love that rabbit jumper and your glitter bow. You are cute as a button! I could do with getting back on the 30 Day Shred, I only did it for about 20 days last time and then lost interest as I didn't lose weight but I could do with having another go! As other people have said, it's the blogger collective that are missing out, not you, I adore your blog and hope you keep it as it is! I applied to one too but I don't have enough hits, never mind eh! X
