A letter to Sweaty Betty about sexualisation …

Earlier today, I was horrified when I saw these Tweets pop up on my timeline: Seriously @sweatybetty who signed this off? I love your products, but I can't buy from you again if you think this is an appropriate way to present kids clothes. Bad enough that adult women are expected to be sexy whilst exercising but now kids too? pic.twitter.com/moDaDHfAY7 — Becca Johns ⚡️ (@thebeccajohns) May 14, 2018 Disappointed by this Lolita style photoshoot from @sweatybetty feels really overly sexualised, particularly the girl in the centre with her legs spread I normally love their… View Post

Bungee Jumping Experience with Red Letter Days

Ever been told to just Live A Little and try something different? I certainly have and sometimes I sit at my computer contemplating my life and the fact that I’ve never done anything really adrenaline inducing and out of my comfort zone.

My Swimathon – Swimadone

Yesterday, I completed my Swimathon challenge. It wasn’t the 1500m distance as originally planned.

I had opted to take part in the “My Swimathon” challenge due to no pools near me taking part in the event and yesterday I took to the water, with the aim to… View Post

MISFIT Vapor Smartwatch Review

I like a gadget. Whilst I am only too aware of my dependency on tech, often to my detriment, I still can’t resist a gadget. I love the fact that it seems there is a piece of tech to do everything now. Except bread makers. I really like kneading dough, but I digress. I was recently sent a MISFIT Vapor Smartwatch for review. I had previously tested out the MISFIT Flash and hated it. It looked like a prison tag and didn’t work, so I never considered MISFIT products again. However, I was interested in… View Post

The Importance of Sleep for Runners

Post in collaboration with Groupon We all know how important it is to get a good sleep. We know we’ll feel more energised for a good night’s shut-eye, yet instead we depend on a pick up from Costa or an oh-so-delicious Nescafe instant to get us through the morning, having gone to bed too late, or simply not had good enough quality sleep. It’s easily done when you stay up finishing emails, checking Facebook, having a quick 5 minutes of Theme Hospital that turns into 5 hours (oh, that’s just me). When you’re active, it’s… View Post
