I returned from my recent holiday in a positive frame of mind. The light evenings have encouraged me to start eating a healthier diet and to get more active with the kids, what better way to see our beautiful countryside than to get out on our bikes!
Of course cycling is particularly topical this year with the forthcoming Tour de France passing through our neck of the woods at the beginning of July, The Grand Depart takes place just down the road from Argent in Leeds. I can’t believe it was a year ago that our youngest son congregated outside Leeds Town Hall with his school friends, sporting his yellow T-shirt to promote The Worlds Greatest Cycle Race. It came as no surprise therefore when it was announced the theme of the schools summer ball this year would be the Tour de France. It couldn’t have worked out better for me as I already had a new bright yellow floor length dress that I have decided to accessorise with Alex Monroe’s gold vermeil bicycle pendant…… would you believe that not only do the tiny wheels turn around but the headlight is set with a diamond and the rear with a ruby! What else would you expect from Alex Monroe? His attention to detail is second to none. Inspired by the actual bike Alex uses to cycle to work, the necklace enables you to get that cycling chic look without all the hard work!
