Last night I had my first Emirates experience. It was pretty awesome. couldn’t believe when I looked back at my photos I missed the ‘E’ off – obviously too much in a rush! After finishing work, and quickly grabbing some food (obv high on my list after a long day at work!), me and Alex met his friend and girlfriend. Starting our short walk to Emirates (so lucky to be so close – love London life), we had a nice little catch up and stopped at a pub for a cheeky pre-match bevvy. I really did need that glass of rosĂ© after stressing myself out this week! Emirates is huge! Walking up to it, you can only imagine the atmosphere on a big game night!…

This morning I dragged myself out of bed at 6.40am to go for a run. I say dragged, but it wasn’t too hard to get up once I’d woken up properly, and I wanted to run in the morning to keep my evening free and to give me a good start to my day (The first part of my morning run-tivation) Time for my first tempo run of the week (part of my training for half marathon) I left the house at 6.50 and slowly jogged to my nearest park. With distance set I started my run – But had to take a quick pause at one point to take some photos to share with everyone. The weather was gorgeous this morning which made my…

When I went home for my birthday I tried my mums new toothpaste – Blanx. She had the intense stain removal version, and after cleaning my teeth my mouth felt amazingly clean. Have you ever tried Listerine? Remember the advert with the explosion in the woman’s mouth, well this stuff was better! Thinking to myself that my teeth weren’t really stained anyway (I think it’s a personal obsession – I used to have braces so teeth are a key body part or thing I think about) I thought I’d try the Blanx classic advanced whitening toothpaste which is non-abrasive for daily use. It’s normally pretty expensive but as it was on offer in boots I decided to give it a go – treat myself, we…

Sunday afternoon I went along to Embankment with my housemate and our boyfriends to watch the runners in the London Marathon coming up to their 24th mile. It was such a lovely day, perhaps a little chilly but the sun was out and the atmosphere was amazing. Everyone was cheering the runners on, clapping, and what I loved most was that nearly everyone had their names on their shirts so you could cheer them on personally. You could see from some of the runners that the personal encouragement really gave them the push they needed, the “come on Mary, you’re doing amazing, not long left” really gave them extra drive to keep going. The determination it must take. Some walking, some jogging, one or two…

Ok i’ll admit it, I’ve been struggling with this 7-a-day fruit &veg challenge this week. Normally I would have been really up for it, and veggies are definitely my fave food! But my appetite just hasn’t been there this week – not good! But I realised it is actually pretty tricky to fit in 7 portions. So I’m starting again today! It’s been a super healthy day so far… Had a fab morning run, 5k before work round the park near Alex’s. There’s so many runners out at this time in the morning there. Me listening to BeyoncĂ© to keep motivated too “to the left to the left…I’m irreplaceableeeeeeee” yeah you’re lucky I don’t sing! I felt unstoppable! I loved my morning run. Really did…
