Everything I Wish I Knew Before I Started Running

You’ve probably seen me mention that I’m currently using the Couch to 5k app to help me get back in the swing of things with running. Back in 2015 I fell in love with running, never before had I felt so mentally free in my entire life but a few months in I really hurt my knee and that left me unable to run comfortably for years. Last year I briefly picked running back in the summer but when the weather turned I didn’t fancy doing it in the freezing cold so it wasn’t until I rejoined the gym did I start opening the app again a few times a week. And this is everything I wish I knew about running before I started.

This might be a bold statement but I truly think this year has been the best for TV in a while. And I love sharing the things that I've loved watching so much as there’s always a good back & forth where you share what you’ve been watching too so I'm never short of suggestions. You might have seen me mention some of these things in my bi-weekly to watch, listen and read posts but here are a few more details on them all.

AM Routines That Are Making My Mornings Awesome Right Now

The hours before the majority of the world gets up and starts their day is my favourite time to be up and getting stuff done. And if I told my teenage self this news I’m sure she would be horrified and if I had the choice between getting up at 5am or 12pm then I’d pick 5am every single time. My morning routine is something I really treasure as not only do I think it’s integral to start the day off well. But it’s generally the only time I get somewhat to myself without having to worry about everything that I need to get done that day and these are 6 of the things that start my day off really well.

6 Beauty Hits & Misses At The Moment

-this post contains gifted items-

I’ve been working some new beauty bits into my routine here and there for a while now. Gone are the days where I was trying something new nearly every other day, I’m much more precious about my skincare routine and there aren’t that many fresh beauty releases that come into my life. Which is a really good thing because I’m slowly working my way through everything I have which is exactly what I’m aiming for. Long gone are the days where I wanted a huge beauty collection. Now what I aim for is something so much more streamlined, it will never be a capsule beauty collection that’s for sure but I don't have 30 foundations anymore either, anyway here are my current beauty hits and misses.

A June To-Do List

Part of me really cannot believe it’s June and the other part feels like winter lasted approx 5435 years and I’m certainly ready for the promise of more warm days that are hopefully waiting for us this month.

And this is what I want to achieve in the next 30 days…

Your Weekend Reading, Watch & Listen List #9

Happy first of the month! Who else can’t believe that we’re already very close to being halfway through 2019? The year seems to fly by now I’m older, I’m sure when I was younger the countdown to the summer holiday’s or Christmas felt like they went on forever but now I’m wishing for time to slow down. The month of June so far is pretty quiet for me which is something I’m looking forward to as it means getting back in the swing of things at home, Edie is also getting spayed this month so that will mean a lot of time downstairs with her so she doesn’t have to tackle the stairs. Anyway, here is this weekends read, watch and listen list for you to scroll through this hopefully sunny Saturday morning.
