THAT Dress.

25 Nov

I’m still alive! Sorry about the lack of posts over the last few of days. I usually bang them out on my WordPress iPhone app but it has been playing up a little bit for me lately! Technology! Bah!

I’ve also had a bit of a cold, formed an addiction to skim chai lattes, scored my first try in touch football, did a fashion shoot for Cosmpolitan magazine… you know the usual… I’ll update you more in coming posts! I also have some good recipes coming up over the next couple of days too so keep your eyes peeled! No, literally, I’d like you to peel your eyes, k? Thanks.

Over the weekend my husband and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. We booked a table on Sunday for lunch at a great little restaurant called Sauce at Coogee Beach but dilemma! What to wear?! Nothing in my wardrobe spelt “romantic beach-side lunch” to me and then I remembered… the leopard print dress! The one that a few of my lovely readers suggested I wear again! Well, I wouldn’t want to let you guys down, right? So I pulled it on and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was loose and flowy! I even considered belting it! Belting it!? The dress that used to be skin tight!? Yes! But I didn’t because it would have been most uncomfortable after consuming my own body weight in ribs. So I chucked on a pair of tan sandals and called it a success.

Husband thought I looked like a winner but then again he always has, god bless him.

I might add that I get all funny and red-faced about putting these photos up for the world to see! But I’m getting more confident and I really think it’s good for me to do this, especially on the days where I feel a bit flat and blah, woe is me, I feel like a piece of lard… You know what I mean? I’m owning my success! You should try it. It feels awesome.

When you feel blah what do you do to make yourself feel awesome again?

      Thanks! I think it will become a staple in this summers wardrobe. After seeing photos of me in it in Fiji I never wore it again! (typed whilst sipping chai latte)

    WHOA MAMA!! You are rockin that dress girl! Love it!

    Lately my diet has been a bit cringe-worthy (chocolate, I’m talking to you), so I’ve been eating nice and healthy again and it’s making me feel TONS better πŸ™‚

      Thanks Tina! πŸ˜€ Oh chocolate… I love it sooooo much. But definitely eating healthy makes me feel better than chocolate ever does!

    Hello, long time lurker here!
    Just had to say – you look absolutely FANTASTIC in that dress! Congratulations on your progress so far, you’ve inspired me to keep the diet and exercise regime going even though it’s so tempting to slip up with the holiday season nearly upon us.

    I think a woot wooooo is appropriate (that’s me wolf whistling if you were wondering!) What a comparison. That really outs your sucess in perspective. You look phenomenal Amanda.

      Haha! Thank you very much! x
