Recently, I have actually been starting to enjoy the gym. I know, right? Me from 6 months ago is like WHAAAA?! But since I’ve started going 4-5 times a week, I’ve realised that my fitness wardrobe needs a serious overhaul. I literally have two outfits that I just have to wash after every visit and alternate- this is not acceptable. I finally forked out on some Nike Free 5.0 trainers in the Office sale a couple of weeks ago, and they have been one of my best ever investments (and a steal for only £45!) so I think I need to start as I mean to go on and bring the rest of my gym wardrobe up to date, starting with some fairly inexpensive basics to get the ball rolling. I’ve been trawling some of my favourite sports gear websites, and these are my favourite picks so far. View Full Post

I’ve never actually gotten round to writing a proper post about my journey with IBS, but it’s something I’ve struggled with for over 7 years now, and it’s been a pretty huge part of my life during this time even though I’ve tried my best not to let it. I’ve tried so many things to try and manage it, but nothing has ever worked and I had kind of resigned myself to the fact that it was just something I’d have to live with. However, before Christmas last year I heard through Twitter about Scarlett’s experience with the York Test, and I couldn’t believe I’d never heard about it before. I was having a pretty bad flare up around Christmas time, thanks to all the crap food I’d been eating, and was pretty desperate so me and George decided that it was time to make an investment in my health and get the test done.

You know when life’s going well, you’re really happy at work and at home, but you’re also majorly tired and just in need of a break? Well, last weekend I had that feeling. Which is why I was so glad that I booked a weekend away in London for me and George during the Black Friday sales. Not only did we manage to get return train tickets for both of us from Leeds for £20, but I also got us a Travelodge room in Southwark, our favourite place to stay, for just over £100 for 2 nights (unheard of for a weekend in London!) I couldn’t wait to go back to one of my favourite cities to explore- let’s see what we got up to, shall we? View Full Post

Happy New Year, one and all!

I’m so happy to be back to blogging again, and I intend to stick to it this time- and I mean it! I just wanted to write a quick little something about my blogging and YouTube plans for the year ahead, before getting stuck back into writing proper content again. View Full Post

Graduating from University of Leeds

So I can’t believe I can finally say this after four years, but last month I actually graduated! And the week before that, I got my first proper adult job as a Graphic Designer. Safe to say, life is moving pretty fast right now. Now, prepare for all the vomit-enducing clichés. My whole university experience really has been a rollercoaster, and as much as I’ve always said I can’t wait to graduate and get a job so I am no longer a poor student (extra poor because I actually have an adult house where I’m expected to cook proper food that didn’t cost 10p and didn’t once have mould on it)- I’m just a teeny bit scared that this is actually it. Like, it. So grab a cup of coffee, slice of cake, and an all-you-can-eat buffet, kids- this is gonna be a long one. View Full Post
