Summer is here, it’s boiling hot and I’ve decided to join a gym & get even sweatier.
I haven’t been to the gym since I was at uni but, as with most things in my life, all it took was a friend saying ‘let’s start going to the gym together!’ for me to sign on up.
I’ve got to be honest – I was a bit nervous the first time we went. And not just because I couldn’t even work out how to use the water machine…

Ahh, spring has sprung!
It’s so wonderful being able to drive to work and return home while it’s still light – the days seem so much longer 🙂
Throughout March, I was officially moving into my flat and sorting out lots of life admin – bills, bills, bills – but I still found time to find a few favourite things along the way.

The snow is just about beginning to melt in Wales & if 4 days inside the house has taught me something, it’s that I really should keep up with writing a blog!
It’s also taught me that eating my weight in chocolate digestives and justifying it with ‘it’s cold, I need more fat’ is not the right way to go.
Anywho, I have some good news to share with you all – woohoo!

My heart has only just settled down enough for me to write this post!
But I had so much fun at Escape Rooms, Cardiff that it was worth all of the excitable palpitations…

I started listening to podcasts when I was making long journeys back & fore to London – before that, I’d never really given them a second thought.
It was only because I noticed the Podcasts app on my iPhone one day that I began to realise just how bloody good they are! Continue reading “My Favourite Podcasts! | News”
It’s the start of a new year and I think pretty much everyone I know is glad to see the back of 2016! What a weird year!
Although there were a lot of highlights in 2016, I didn’t do half the things I said I was going to do.

This week, I’m introducing you guys to a charity that I’ve recently become involved with!
A couple of weeks ago, I came into contact with James & his wonderful charity, CATS.
The charity focuses on promoting awareness of cancer symptoms to young people, particularly students. As someone who had cancer as a teenager, I was keen to get involved to prevent other people being misdiagnosed like I was.

Today is Women’s Equality Day in the US – a day that deserves plenty of celebration and lots of conversation. On the 26th August 1920, women were granted official permission to vote by the US Government.
Although I live in the UK, I feel that an achievement for women anywhere is an achievement for women everywhere. We are still fighting sexism worldwide every day but thanks to the women of previous generations, we have a lot more rights than they did.
When I was younger, I definitely took my right to vote for granted. To put it simply, I wasn’t interested in politics at all. I didn’t really care who was in charge of the country or what it would mean for me because I had more important things to worry about like who was gossiping about who, of course! But everything changed for me when I went to university… Continue reading “Why Celebrate Women’s Equality Day? | News”
