Baxters Soup Swap Challenge

If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably aware that I’ve moved house. The last few weeks have been manic and I still don’t have my kitchen appliances fitted. Moving is a busy and stressful time, so anything that can make meal times easier is a real bonus.

I was asked to take part in the Souper Swap Challenge, swapping my usual lunch choice for one of the Baxters soups every day for two weeks. My… View Post

Vintage style of a fitness blogger

Post in collaboration with Rokit When I’m not in lycra or chilling out in my pyjamas, I’m often found in vintage style clothing. I love the rockabilly look, and I’m also a huge fan of classic 40s cuts. Give me a pencil skirt and high heels, or a big swing dress and I’m happy.

We feel excited about the new year and new starts, but many of us feel miserable and sad with the cold weather, long nights, broken resolutions and a long wait until pay-day. It’s enough to make anyone want to stay in bed and hibernate, especially when you find it hard to get out of bed on a dark morning.   I definitely find it hard to… View Post

My Running Year in Review 2016

Yes, I’m jumping on that bandwagon of writing a review of my year. Granted, there’s still 3 days left of 2016, but I’m not going to be running any races over the next 3 days so it seems like a good time to review my year in fitness and running. I had a couple of goals in the back of my mind for 2016 – I wanted to edge my 10k back under an hour and I wanted to get close to my pre-Rose 5k PB. Neither happened, but it was an interesting year.  … View Post
