Recently, there are 5 habits that I want to bring into my life more often. I know habits aren’t something that you can just develop overnight so I…

    Planning a Hen Party in Manchester

    This year I’ve been incredibly lucky to be a bridesmaid on two occasions. I have never been one before now and it has been so much fun. For my friend Alice, I had a bit of involvement in planning and getting her hen do together along with the maid of honour and two other bridesmaids. It was pretty overwhelming, to…

    Deadwood Smokehouse, Mold

    If you know me, you’ll know that I adore American food, especially smokehouses. I came across Deadwood Smokehouse in Mold, near Chester, when Curt and I were looking for somewhere to eat for date night. The menu looked amazing so we booked a table for late one Sunday afternoon to avoid it being busy. Think ribs, steaks, burgers, chicken, onion rings, chips…

    Tropic Skincare Review

    One of the areas I’m weakest in when it comes to beauty is my skincare routine. I’m often lazy and it’s partially down to the fact I always change products as I can never find any that completely in love with. That is until I discovered the Tropic Skincare range. I was introduced to it by a friend who has…

    Body Positivity; What is it & how to get it

    A few weeks ago, I made the decision to stop going to Slimming World. My head hasn’t really been in it over the summer and my goals are not to necessarily lose weight anymore. I have been so focused on my outlook and body positivity that weighing myself weekly isn’t really helping my self-esteem. More weight training and less cardio…

    Must-See Spots in Santorini

    As most will know from my white and blue pictures on Instagram, I recently visited Santorini. It was my first proper holiday in well over five years and it was completely incredible. Not only was it my first time in Greece, it was my first time being a bridesmaid. We all went for a week and made the absolute most of it.…

    How to Get Bikini Body Ready

    Step 1 to getting your bikini body ready: Put a bikini on. From someone who has been up and down with their weight and tried every diet out there for the good part of ten years, I can finally say “I’m over it.” In the last six months or so, I’ve found it really difficult staying focussed on the numbers…

    Everything That Goes Through My Head on a First Date

    Getting Ready for a First Date. What am I going to wear? What kind of make-up is appropriate? Does my outfit match where we’re going/what we’re doing? What if they don’t like X that I’m wearing? Fuck it. I don’t care if they don’t like something. This is me (sings the Greatest Showman song in head). Shall I wear a…

    How to Stay Motivated with Fitness When it’s Cold

    When the temperature is close to zero, it can be really difficult to get out of your warm, cosy home to exercise. With the start of the New Year, everyone likes to get back into fitness and become their ‘best selves’. This alone can be the only motivation you need but sometimes you might need that extra little push to get…

    Things I Achieved in 2017

    Rather than setting myself goals an obscure amount of goals or resolutions, I wanted to look at all the things I achieved in 2017. We often set unrealistic goals and become weighed down by them when we don’t reach them in the first couple of months. If you’re going to set goals for the year, try breaking them down into smaller…

    When Home is a Feeling, Not Just a Place

    Something I’ve come to realise more and more recently is that home is a feeling, not just a place. I could never pinpoint just one place that feels like home to me. It’s the people you’re around that make a place a home, it’s having a connection that’s familiar and comforting. When someone asks you where you’re from, where do…

    Disneyland Paris Adventures

    Disneyland Paris is something I’ve wanted to check off my bucket list for a long time. Last month, after waiting what seemed like forever, I finally had my Disneyland Paris adventure! The main reason, as you’ve probably read and seen, was to participate in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo challenge; running a 10km race and then a half marathon on consecutive…

    Reasons to Go Walking

    One thing I love is going on a long walk in the countryside. Growing up, we went on holidays in the Yorkshire Dales every year, which I probably didn’t appreciate enough at the time. Now, when I have a free weekend, I like to pack my car up, jump in and find a new route for the day. There are…

    Things I’m Excited for at Disneyland Paris

    There are so many things I’m excited for at Disneyland Paris. After looking forward to it for months, it’s now less than three weeks away! I’ve started planning outfits with my friend Jen and trying to sort what we’re doing each day along with smashing my running goals. I’ll be running the 10km kitted out head-to-toe as Tinkerbell and then doing…

    Top 3 Smoothies to Start the Day

    I am a complete sucker for having smoothies to start the day. During my work week, I do intermittent fasting which means I get all my calories in within an eight-hour period. I start eating at 11.30am which means my lunch break is only an hour later. I’ll usually start with a protein shake packed full of nutrients and I…
