she sells sea shells

if you follow me on instagram or twitter, you may have heard me talk (moan) about a little thing called shred ... incase you were wondering, i have taken on the challenge of the 30 day shred, accompanied by the wonderful rachel : today is day 17, so we're over half way! it's tough but i'm definitely feeling like it's making a difference.

in an effort to stay motivated, rachel came up with the awesome idea of making our own (prettier) version of these 'pounds to lose' & 'pounds lost' jars. there is a cute little tutorial on rachel's blog - she has filled hers with the cutest little dinosaurs, it made me a bit jealous!
i decided to fill mine with shells, since i have amassed a fair few on our long walks down the beach.

all this talk of shells has made me want to draw them ... maybe i should draw each shell i put into the 'yay!' jar!


  1. These jars look great. Im' going to head over to Rachel's blog and see what she's been getting up to...

    Drawing the shells is a great idea :)

  2. Your jars are beautiful, I love that you are using shells. So pretty! The dinosaurs also got me pretty nostalgic - I used to have a thing for small dinosaurs as a kid.

    I'm starting level 2 today, eek. Wish me luck!

    1. thanks you <3 good luck! i'm on level 3 now .. so hard!

  3. Such a cute idea, well done you for sticking to it, I got as far as downloading the 30 day shred but have never actually attempted it, eek!

    1. hehe! yes i'm quite surprised that i've stuck to it, it's quite addictive! x

  4. This is a really good idea! I'm trying to loose weight (or at least my personal trainer is trying to make me loose weight) and this would be a far prettier way to encourage me to keep going than the dreaded scales. Thanks for the idea!

  5. That's such a nice idea, I keep debating the 30 day shred - I can imagine it's super tough!
