Some of you might remember that in my post about what’s in line for 2016 in the world of Chloe, I mentioned that I want to get stronger at swimming. Not a New Year’s Resolution – because let’s face it as soon as it becomes one of those you feel disappointed when you don’t keep them, or is that just me? I just pledged to myself that I wanted to start thinking about being a stronger swimmer so that on holidays I don’t have to be the kill joy – the one who won’t go down the sky high water slide due to a feeling that I’m going to drown at the bottom, trust me that is how you feel when you’re not confident! So right…

Ok so I think I made that word up, but it sounds quite cool, don’t you think? I’m not quite good enough to be a fully fledged yogi, but I do love a good yoga class and have become slightly addicted to Yoogaia! For all of you who don’t know what Yoogaia is…it’s an online portal where you can access live or recorded yoga classes in a number of different languages. Not only this but you can select the length of the session and how sweaty or calming you’d like to take it making it perfect for fitting into a busy schedule. There’s been plenty of times I’ve fancied a yoga class and not found one in a good location or at a good time for…

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL! Don’t worry this isn’t going to be a whole essay on how this year’s going to be SOOO much better, the changes I’m making, blah blah blah.

I am definitely inspired to run a race after last weekends marathon! The Virgin Money London Marathon always has this effect on me. But there’s so many races to choose from, and so many different types. Last year I did my first ever half which was great and I’m already looking into doing another. However I fancy doing something a little different too…. …an obstacle course! I really fancy running, getting muddy and clambering my way through a number of obstacles to the finish line. It just sounds so much fun! Ok so the Tough Mudder is on my wish list, but definitely need a warm up first. I recently found out about the Spartan Race…and it looks amazing. Spartan Race is one of the world’s leading obstacle…

Nothing is better than comfortable, right? And let’s face it trainers are comfortable and good for every occasion…well almost. Perhaps a job interview might not be the place or time. I have been wanting to buy new trainers for ages! I remember last winter being envious of everyone in Nike Air Max, urgently wanting some…to be comfortable, cosy and have something easy I knew I could wear anytime. But living on a budget I would not justify spending about £90 just for this. Flats and my boots I already had would have to do unfortunately 🙁 Well finally, I have some new babies. I popped in to JD Sports to view the January sale and look at this AWESOME find: The inside cushion of the trainer is…
