I can’t even remember the last time I did an outfit post on my blog.. a while ago! But at last summer has finally hit and the weather has been beautiful lately. Yumi are running #Yumi30DaysOfSummer campaign and are asking 30 fashion bloggers what their favourite Yumi summer outfit is.

I think it’s always nice to have a ‘special’ dinner with family where you can all sit around at the table together, share food, and chat away all evening.

I had been working at my local council for the last 2 years doing customer service and mainly specialising in housing benefit applications and social services referrals. It was quite an enjoyable job, but the office relocated in June and my 15 minute journey to work became up to an hour each way. I was getting pretty…
