I’m typing this post out as I wait my turn at my neighbourhood clinic. I’m not at work today and I had a really bad night yesterday. I had these sharp pains in my lower abdomen (not like the menstrual ones) and now I feel like I did 100000 sit-ups yesterday. Miserable. I don’t know what exactly happened. A case of too much cake?? Highly likely since I’ve been warned my low HCI levels.

Anyway yesterday I got showered, dressed and out of the house in 15minutes! This is what I look like on lazy crazy unplanned days:

Top: Dark Olive Green pleated ruffle top from CLUB MONACO

Accessories: Green and silver Multi-strand necklace from DOROTHY PERKINS

Bottoms: Blue ankle grazer jeans from NEXT

Bag: Black quilted clutch wallet from RIPCURL

Footwear: Gold ballet flats with bow from PRETTYFIT
