20 Things: A Year In Employment


Oh how time flies. Why is a year at school really slow but a year in full-time work feels like two seconds? I'm actually concerned that I'll blink and I'll suddenly be 30. Not that 30 is a problem, I just would really like time to slow down so I can sort out my life eh. Anyway what's a celebratory way to share my first year in big girl work than to blog about it? Hey, did it even happen if you didn't blog about it?!

Fitness, Gym and Running Clothes for 2017


Holllaa New Year new me right?! Don't let anyone make you feel bad for actually thinking new yearn new me. Because I sure as hell don't. I am one of those people that need the motivation of a new year to pick up a new habit or drop a habit. So how did I start January? I bought a load of new gym wear to kick my butt back to the gym before marathon seasons arrives. I've already been to the gym more times this year than I did in all of December and we're only half way through the month...

With marathon training last year, I think I have pretty much nailed down where to get cost-efficient gym clothing and running gear from because I've gone through so much. I know what brands to avoid due to chafing and I know what brands fully support you and your chest.

How Strong is Your Pin Game

Cacti - A5 Print available at www.thatlamecompany.co.uk
My pin game is hella weak. I have been lusting over enamel pins for months, I hate following the crowd with everything... especially with my shop. But I've had so many people ask if and when I am going to bring out enamel pin badges. I have looked, boy I have looked. But it's quite risky for me to purchase enamel pins as they are quite expensive and the minimum order quantities are high, well high enough that it becomes a risk.

The last thing I want to do is spend hundreds of pounds and be left with hundreds of enamel pins taking up the little space I have left in my room. What happens if I design pins nobody is happy with or would never purchase?!

I would happily prance around with a 'I love pizza' pin and I'm not exactly sure how many people would agree.

Exploring Bristol: Mercure Bristol Holland House Hotel and Spa


A few weeks ago in December, I was invited along to spend the night at the Mercure Bristol Holland House Hotel and Spa. Living so close to Bristol it is rare that I would actually pay to stay in a Hotel because a taxi home would be cheaper and hey, a girl's got to save to be able to buy a house this year (before my brother moves back home from Uni). So naturally I was quite excited to leave work after our Christmas meal and head to meet Charlie at the Bristol Mercure.

Top 10 Places to Visit in Bristol in 2017

photo
I may not have photos for all of these, take the Clifton Suspension Bridge for example, I am fricking scared of bridges and heights but I know that it's one of the most iconic features of Bristol. But here is a little list of 10 places that you might want to visit if you're coming to Bristol. Oh so frequently people message me saying 'I have 24 hours in Bristol, where should I go' and I completely blank and can't think of anything apart from a chain restaurant like Nandos... I'm hoping to branch out on independent places in Bristol this year on the blog too.

Photograph from Pretty Things Blog  

Tomorrow is the first day of the new year, leaving today as the last day of 2016. Oh 2016, how shocking you have been. There have been far more downs than ups this year, but I am hoping to change it from tomorrow. This includes daily running and no alcohol for January... yikes.

Merry Christmas 2016


Well hello, it's Christmas Day. I haven't been very active on here due to a mass amount of work but I am back. I am ready to kick 2017's butt as well.

How am I spending Christmas Day? I am currently sat in my new fluffy jumper, on my laptop writing this post, drinking Bucks Fizz and watching Gossip Girl. And I am rather happy about that.

The Essential Christmas #BoxOfLame


HELLO people. I believe this is my first blog post in December *slaps wrist*. I've been so busy at work, freelance work, producing a box of lame and a blogger planner. But, I break up for Christmas on Thursday and I'M SO BLOODY EXCITED. Anyway you're here for the Christmas #BoxOfLame. I thought I'd only make 50 as it's quite a busy period and people may not have much money. Nearly all 50 have gone in one day without even knowing the contents (I love you all). But here is what is featuring in the box.
