I realise you've all seen this outfit before and I definitely need to get some new pieces into my spring/summer wardrobe but I LOVE these pink trousers, especially when the sun is shining! I bought them in a tiny Fiorucci boutique in Capri right before getting pregnant with Eduardo! The pink flats are also favourites of mine - they were really affordable from ASOS about 4-5 years ago. My jumper is from Jack Wills (last summer) and my bag is a very old Chloé Paddington. The sunnies are by Gucci and were an anniversary present last September!
Yesterday we visited our nearest RSPCA animal shelter which was both a heartbreaking and eye-opening experience. I've visited dog shelters before, as we have supported PAWS in Ireland for many years...so I've become a bit better at dealing with it (meaning I don't bawl my eyes out the entire time!) but it's still upsetting, especially the cruelty cases. One that stood out to me the most was this absolutely beautiful labradoodle who was cowering in farthest corner of his kennel, looking completely petrified. The fear & hurt in his eyes reduced me to tears - I just don't understand why anybody would harm an animal, it doesn't make sense to me :(
Having said all of that what really impressed me yesterday were the conditions of the shelter and the way the RSPCA operate their business. Everything was so organised, clean and efficient...the animals were extremely well looked after by the staff and volunteers and I'm so proud & happy to be supporting such a great charity. I'm excited to announce that we are going to be officially attending the RSPCA's Big Walkies event in Alexandra Park in London on the 31st of May! Jonathan & I will be there with all six of our dogs so if you would like to meet us (or them!) please register here! We would love to meet you and your pooches :) I will be smuggling as many puppies as possible into my handbag...only joking. Kind of.
After our RSPCA visit we went to Valentina for a yummy Italian lunch and I had the most amazing panettone bread & butter pudding! It was kind of like French toast, made with lots of egg and topped with a marmalade glaze. Of course the words "warm" and "served with vanilla ice-cream" are what really won me over!! This is why we go to the gym, ladies! So we can justify panettone pudding! ;)
Eduardo on the other hand, ate absolutely no pudding yesterday. Definitely not a chocolate one at any rate! Don't you just love how they always feel the need to rub their food-covered hands all over their hair THE VERY DAY after you wash it. Lovely.
