The 8 ‘Life Things’ I’m Most Excited About (Without Wishing My Life Away)

Yay for blog post ideas that cross your mind at the most random of times, right?  This one popped into my head in the shower.  We all do our best thinks in there.  I can’t remember what my exact train of thought was as I shaved my legs but for some reason I was wondering what I’m most excited for about life.  Obviously there’s lots of day to day things to get excited about, but I’m the kind of person…

Feeling 100% Comfortable with My Life and My Self

Gonna start off by wishing you all a happy Sunday and doing that annoying blogger thing of apologising for going MIA when nobody actually cares.  So yeah, soz for disappearing on you for a whole 5 days!  Like I said though, I’m taking a slightly slower approach rather than loading my plate too high and spreading myself too thinly.  Attempting to anyway.  Turns out being full time distance learning student is actually pretty difficult, too!  I might write another installment…

Slow & Soft | A New Approach To Slowing Life Down

OK so my idea for this post was to talk about taking life a little slower sometimes, and given that it’s taken me a good half hour and 2 cups of tea to think of an opening sentence, I’d say I’m doing pretty well so far.  My brain’s worked hard today and it’s on a go slow, evidently! But yes, in general I often feel like I’m always trying to think of ways to speed up.  Cramming more into a…

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…
