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
Last week I posted my first ever Small Business Saturday post. Like I said in that post, I had a fair few businesses to mention so split the post in two because I didn’t and don’t want to gloss over any business. Closet Geek I have followed Closet Geek for so long on instagram but… Continue reading SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY #2
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?
Supporting small is always an excellent idea. And now, probably more than ever, I feel it is important to support small businesses. I have wanted to do a Small Business Saturday post for so long and the current situation has given me that push to finally get it done. That, and lockdown has seen me… Continue reading SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY #1
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
Well hello there… Again. I’ve been MIA for a few weeks now. I was loving blogging again, writing and posting regularly. And then, as it tends to do, life got in the way. A lot was going on for 6/7 weeks and it completely threw me out of my routine. But, like I always do… Continue reading HELLO… AGAIN!
This post is well overdue and posts like this will always be a bit controversial. Everyone looks for different things when they’re at a theme park so by no means is this a definite list, this is just my, five favourite rides from Universal Studios Orlando. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure This ride had only… Continue reading UNIVERSAL: TOP 5
Let’s talk books. I have a whole category on the blog related to books, I’m an avid reader, and scroll through the goodreads app far too often. For me, reading is a form of self-care, it’s ‘me’ time and I love nothing more than getting lost in a good book. I’ve recently read a few… Continue reading 20 BOOKS FOR 2020
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
