Why Doing Something That Terrifies You Is So Worth It | AD

-paid partnership with Go Ape-

Sherwood Forest is a place that I’ve visited and walked in hundreds of times throughout my life as it’s a destination that I could walk to from my dad’s house and now it’s somewhere that we regularly frequent with Josie & Edie. There is one part of the forest that I never thought I’d be in and that is the Go Ape site, I’d always gazed up at people completing the course and it always looked like they were having an awesome time but it had always been a ‘no, not for me’ kinda thing.

Your Weekend Reading, Watch & Listen List #9

Happy Friday and happy summer too, we’re officially now in the warm season so all we can hope is that the weather gets the memo and does what it’s meant to do rather than another few weeks of rain. Seriously, I’m not sure my brain can handle any more rain. The only thing the bad weather has been good for though is my research when it comes to these posts as there hasn’t been much else to do but go through my Bloglovin feed and Netflix. And here is everything that I’ve been reading, watching and listening to lately for you to hopefully enjoy too.

Let's Talk: Feeling A Little Lost & Seriously Uninspired

During the June monsoon (my nickname for the last 10 days of horrific weather) my mental health very quickly plummeted. It probably wasn’t entirely the weather's fault but it certainly didn’t help matters for me and a lot of feelings came bubbling to the surface. Feeling uninspired is something that I hate, I’m so incredibly fortunate to have a creative job that so many people would absolutely love to have so when I’m not making the most of it then I feel like a terrible human.

My Style Essentials For A Typical British Summer

Just in case you’ve missed every single person in the UK moaning about the weather let me tell you that it’s been absolutely foul lately. I don’t think I’ve ever known rain as heavy or as often as we’ve had in the past couple of weeks. It’s rained every single day, often all day and to say it’s put a dampener on my enthusiasm for summer is an understatement. I’d tucked away all my coats and knitwear in favour for summer dresses and sandals but sadly there’s been absolutely no way I’ve been able to put those on so I’ve been turning to style essentials for a typical British summer instead.

3 Years Of Vegetarianism

June marks 3 years since I made the choice to cut meat from my diet and I can safely say that it’s the best decision that I’ve ever made. Diet isn’t something that I talk about a lot as it’s something that is so incredibly personal and what works for one certainly doesn’t work for all and we all know that preaching about an animal-free diet doesn’t inspire anyone to make a change. All that being said though, today I wanted to share what 3 years of vegetarianism has looked like for me.

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.
