Oh hey there! Disclaimer: This post got super long so you may want to grab yourself a cup of something tasty before proceeding. Let’s talk SPF… It seems somewhat of a buzz word and it’s something that I definitely did not pay much attention to until recently. I feel like it’s a rite of passage… Continue reading LET’S TALK ABOUT SPF
Hello, hello! I posted a couple of weeks back about using Tropic skincare and how it was, or in my case, wasn’t working. At that point my plan was to strip back my skincare routine and see if it made any difference before making a decision about repurchasing Tropic or going down a different route… Continue reading AM I STILL USING TROPIC?
Podcasts are mentioned a lot these days and you can find one on pretty much any topic. I started listening to podcasts, well one, about two years ago but instantly became hooked… It wasn’t until towards the end of last year that I began to get more into podcasts as opposed to just the one… Continue reading PODCASTS: MY FAVOURITES
Tropic is a brand that on paper sounds utterly fantastic. But does the reality live up to this? I have been using Tropic for 6 weeks now, it was my intention to do a ‘first impressions’ but that did not materialise because I am lazy… So here we are, 6 weeks later I am going… Continue reading TROPIC: FIRST IMPRESSIONS & 6 WEEKS LATER
A topic everyone is talking about right now. Understandably so, and I feel like putting my two cents in. I have been working from home for 5 weeks now and have had 2 weeks Easter holidays thrown in and it has been weird. As a primary school teacher, my days are usually filled with 20+… Continue reading PRODUCTIVITY DURING LOCKDOWN?
Waaah. Aaaargh. Oh God. Just keep going. And various other random sounds were expressed during my first run in 3 years. I have never actually completed a 5k until this run. 45 minutes… So let’s face it, I need to shave 5 minutes off each mile. And work on just slowing my pace instead of… Continue reading FIRST RUN IN 3 YEARS
Hello hello! If you read my last post, you’ll know I have recently read Train Happy by Tally Rye and it’s a book I feel I have to talk about it. I have never read anything like it, or really been exposed to those views before. ‘Train Happy’ is all about intuitive exercise and listening… Continue reading TRAIN HAPPY – TALLY RYE
The older I get, and the more into health and fitness I get, I’ve realised some really toxic behaviour that I feel we need to leave in the last decade. Maybe it’s the people I follow, or did… I’m getting good at unfollowing people who I find are negative, or affect me in any undesirable… Continue reading LET’S STOP DIET SHAMING
I am Shona’s (marginally) fitter older brother, Rory. She’d tell you I stay fit for the wrong reasons: my unhealthily competitive nature and to impress girls. She might have a point as I’m still not having that much luck with the latter. However, whatever my reasoning there is no doubt that getting fit and keeping… Continue reading FITNESS IS FOR EVERYONE: EVEN IF GYMS ARE NOT
Last weekend my mum and I had such a wonderful experience at Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club in Edinburgh. For Christmas my auntie had gifted us a Pamper Package for the hotel and for various reasons we waited until July to use it. It was just what I needed following a stressful fourth year of… Continue reading DALMAHOY HOTEL & COUNTRY CLUB
