Bridesmaid 2.0

August 16, 2017

For the second time ever, I have been asked to be a bridesmaid. I know, I would have thought it would have been more frequent too – I’m killer at making lists. I was Maid of Honour for my younger sister’s wedding in November 2013 which was absolutely magical, so I am beyond excited to get back in the mix again. My friend, Sam, sent me a beautiful surprise in the post (above) asking me to be her bridesmaid. I love…

Fish week

August 15, 2017

This week I am on a pescetarian voyage to cleanse my insides and improve my general wellbeing. Side note – while reading up on this I found another term for it: “vegequarian” which I fucking love! I’ve never tried a meat-free diet before so I am intrigued to see how I go. In all honesty, there are so many fish and shellfish options about these days that you really don’t feel like you’re missing out. Especially as I am doing the lenient pescetarian diet,…

We’ve got a name, the start up capital and the idea.…

Turning 33 and melting in the 33 degree heat while trying to be a lady

June 28, 2017

I feel like I blinked and my birthday week was over. They say time flies as you get older, but this is getting out of control. This year rather than gathering friends together to celebrate me getting closer to 40, I decided I wanted to do summer London activities and not be at work (most important!). Five to ten years ago I would have been all over the boozy night out and dancing to the wee hours. But now I’m…

This gym shiz is alright.

June 13, 2017

I have become one of those. Yes, one of THOSE. That talks about the gym, their workouts and their food. Phil is doing his best to be supportive but I know inside he is doing major stink eye at me. I literally talk about my aching muscles daily. He’s a saint. A saint that’s screaming, SHUT UP ABOUT YOUR GODDAMN MUSCLES, on the inside. I imagine it’s like living with one of those Crossfit fanatics. Ugh. But if we can…
