Another month of 2018 has flown by - I swear, I’ve become one of those people who says time is just flying by but it really, really is! I have no idea to put the breaks on and just have a minute - any and all tips welcome people! Trying to cut the rambling to a minimum, here’s the highlights reel of my June 2018!
Reusable cotton rounds
June marks the first month of me switching to reusable cotton rounds! I picked up 12 of these lil guys for £10 on Etsy and haven’t looked back! If you caught my switching to a safety razor post, you’ll know I’m trying to ease my way into a more minimal, zero waste beauty routine, replacing things with more sustainable, planet friendly versions as I go along. I’ve got a whole post coming on these soon, but in short, I love them, so go get yourself some!
White Wolf Yoga
I partnered up with the lovely Antonia of Allure La Vie and we headed to White Wolf Yoga Studio, Liverpool, for our first breath and being workshop! 3 hours of yoga, meditation and chanting - it was a real eye opener for the both of us. Not only have I thrown myself fully into my home yoga practice, but I’m eager to find another workshop this month and continue on this journey!
Race for Life 5k
I’ve not ran for more than a bus since December, so rocking up to Aintree Racecourse for a very unprepared for 5k with a hangover was probably not my best move BUT I nailed it! My gorgeous Melissa of Just a Slimmer has recently hit the 10stone weight loss milestone and this was her first time running 5k! We crossed that finish line in under 40minutes and I couldn’t be more proud of her!
Another live band ticked off the list! I headed to Wrexham with my work family for a day of gin, toilet antics, face glitter and lots of singing! Stereophonics were amazing, the weather was brilliant and I had the best, best time! I need more live music in my life that’s for sure!
This is something that I feel like has been coming for a while. I’ve done a few vegetarain month long challenges but slowly meat has become less and less prominent in my diet and I’ve now completely cut it out. Health reasons, ethical reasons, personal reasons, I’m sure I’ll do a post on this at some point in the future when I’ve collected my thoughts a bit more! But June seen me make the switch official and I have zero regrets!
Call the Midwife
I’ve only ever caught the Christmas specials but the last few weeks I have binged watched almost 4 seasons. I bleeding love this show! I cry at nearly every episode and I am totally OK with that, sometimes you just need to let all the feels in and all the emotions out!
And you’ve been loving…
My most popular post this month by far has been the first in my cooking with confidence series (that I am still working on! There’s more to come!) I love talking all things cooking and getting people in the kitchen in real life, so of course, I’m bringing it here to you lovely lot!
What have been your highlights of the past month?
Until next time,
