A Girly Spa Night with Boohoo x Village | #WeAreSS17

Any excuse to crack out the first bikini of the season and I’ll take it!  I am seriously craving some actual sun and warmth on my back right now I tell ya.  Grey skies are getting hella boring.  Sadly a pre-Spring trip to the Bahamas hasn’t presented itself yet, but Boohoo invited me along to their #WeAreSS17 launch with Village Spa which satisfied my bikini craving.  Still wouldn’t turn down a Bahamas trip though, if you’re offering!  After what turned into…

A Light-hearted, Post Valentine’s Day, What Not To Do For Guys

So.  There were many love-y posts and cynical posts in the lead up to Valentine’s day, but probably not many in the wake of good ol’ V-day.  We’re going with a tongue in cheek, hefty pinch of salt approach to a ‘what not to do’ for guys today.  I’ve been single for a while now so why not! — Don’t make the mistake of playing it cool to avoid scaring someone off.  If they’ve really enjoyed the first date then…

Health and Fitness Q&A | Regime, Butt Workouts and Secrets For Abs

Another fitness post because I’m all about the snazzy fit kit at the minute.  For both gymming and wearing around the house, that is.  Can’t get enough of it! I feel like fitness blogging is a bit of an odd one, because unless you’re a qualified PT or something, you don’t want to come across like you think you know what you’re talking about when in actual fact you don’t.  That’s how I feel, anyway.  Almost slightly fraudulent if you…

A High Street Shopping Experiment | Where The Nice People Are Round 2

Yonks ago, back in what feels like the blogging dark ages, I wrote a blog post about where the nicest shopping experiences were to be had.  Just as a little experiment to show appreciation for the friendly people who make your day that bit nicer.  And yesterday I decided 3 years down the line to do High Street Experiment Round II, with different shops, and see where had the friendliest staff and who made for the nicest experience as a…

Go Hard or Go Home | Attitude to Fitness and Life

I don’t know about you, but I feel like a workout’s wasted if I’m not either sweaty, sore or stretched afterwards. I definitely have a ‘go hard or go home’ attitude in the gym (if you saw the ugly faces I pull by rep 11 of 12 you’d believe me!).  And I think it’s a pretty good attitude to apply to other things in life too.  I guess I’m an all or nothing kind of person! But yes, workout wise…

My 10 Favourite Instagram Accounts | Who I’m Loving on The ‘Gram

I’ve slated Instagram’s algorithm hoo ha on here lots, but I’m still hopelessly addicted to it (aren’t we all?).  So today, instead of ranting like I seem all too fond of lately, I thought I’d share some insta love and shoutout some of my absolute fave accounts.  There’s a selection here of big and small, niche and random, travel, fitness, funnies, bit of everything – there’s no set criteria for making it onto Lily’s Favourite List (big achievement that) because…

Bodypump 100 | The Butt Burning, Arm Burning, EVERYTHING Burning Workout

OK so the new year fitness shenanigans are over and done with now, but I wrote in my notebook that I plan to do more fitness ‘stuff’ on the blog this year and if it’s in the notebook it’s gotta happen!  So here we are with one of my favourite workouts.  I’ve been doing BodyPump for literally years, so was obviously more than happy to attend the launch event of BODYPUMP100 a couple of weeks ago to share with you…
