This whole week I have been very Spring Clean-y. It’s not quite Spring yet but the weather seems brighter and it felt like a good time to rid myself of some clutter and unloved bits. The most things to go are always clothes. The last few years I have a massive clear out every six months. I am brutal. With decluttering clothes, if something no longer fits and will never fit (hello size 4 clothing!), despite how beautiful or how much it cost – it goes. The same goes for items I bought that still have labels or tickets on several months after buying. These are usually sale purchases (although shockingly not always), and I figure they’ll probably remain unworn forever so best to just move them on to a more loving home. (more…)
Despite the fact the gym is literally 30 seconds from my house, since the weather has been getting cooler (to put it mildly), I’m finding it hard to motivate myself to leave the house on days when I’m nicely snuggled in my comfy sweats and uggs. It’s just too hard. Especially for someone as lazy as me who needs absolutely everything aligned before I will even consider going to the gym – and that’s on a good day.
First post of the year! Does it look different?
Aha.. I’ve had a revamp!
I’ve been wanting to blog for ages but have decided to keep a low profile whilst my new blog design, which has been a while in the works, was finally loaded onto my site at the end of last year. There was a bit of a teething period where it didn’t look entirely right, so I didn’t blog or tweet or try to draw any attention to it until it was fixed (as I understandably didn’t want people seeing it all broken), but it’s all fixed now and everything is working as it should! Huzzah!
Every now and again (notably more often as I’ve been getting older), I reassess my health and lifestyle and try to implement healthier choices. I know for a fact I don’t get enough fruit or veg, I’m just not one of those people who sit down with a bowl of fruit as a snack (or shock horror – in place of desert!).
The only way I could see myself getting near my five-a-day was sticking them all in blender, and making myself a delicious smoothie! The problem with this was washing up a giant monster blender daily to make my delicious smoothie was equally unappealing. Enter the Duronic BL3 Sports Blender – an on-the-go, blend in the glass, smoothie maker! (more…)
