New In | January Monthly Favourites 2018

Happy hump day to all those celebrating the end of what always seems to be a very long month. Most people talk of the 'January Blues' however for me January marks both mine and my Mum's birthday as well as of course a brand new start to a brand new year. Plenty to celebrate in my eyes! So what's new this month...first and foremost let's talk me, my health and my new exercise regime. As with for many people, January marks a new beginning to a 'new year, new me' and also a new gym membership. I'm afraid to say I fell into the cliche this year myself. Towards the second half of last year, I decided to cancel my Pure Gym membership as I found myself enjoying a couple of outdoor runs every week. The fresh air and open space I found kept me more motivated to run rather than the content clock watching on a treadmill. However as it got colder and into this month, the thought of going for a run out in the cold is right at the back of my mind. In order to keep up with the regular exercise I decided to renew my membership and I'm so glad I have!

Barcelona Travel Guide

Hello, happy Sunday (if you're reading this on a Sunday of course...)! I hope everyone is well. I unfortunately have not been 100% the last couple of weeks fighting through the coughing and sneezing, myself and Tom took a trip to Barcelona! We had such a fabulous time and enjoyed every second of it. I certainly was not going to let this cold defeat me. Having said that, I would love to go back and experience the city again (minus the Lemsip). Perhaps one summer we will head back and maybe even stay closer to the beach because we loved it that much! I thought in light of my very speedy weekend there, I would follow up with a few tips and tricks on what to do during a weekend in Barcelona...enjoy!

The Art of Macrame

Macramé is a new found love of mine. With the prospect of a potential house move in 2018, homeware and interior design is something I have been obsessing over in particular on my Pinterest page. I feel like more and more people are discovering the art of Macrame and I have even started to spot more of it on the high street. I thought I'd share with you a few Macrame finds that I have added to my wishlist both in the form of wall art and hanging planters. A friend of mine has recently fallen pregnant and also broody is not currently in my vocabulary, I did get very excited when we were looking at ways to introduce Macramé into the nursery too!
