Two Blue Band Sticky Fingers Middlesbrough

After a little break away from the blogging scene I’m back to share a fab local band for you to check out. A couple of weeks ago I finally got to watch my best friend’s fiance live in action doing what he loves. He’s a drummer in a fantastic band called Two Blue Band. I think it’s so cool to be able to say one of my friends is in a band, that automatically makes me cool too, right? Anyway, one Saturday night we popped down to Sticky Fingers on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough to give the band a listen and have a few drinks.  View Post

Gym kit - Realistic Fitness Goals and Tips on How to Start your own Fitness Journey

Since starting a career which requires me to spend long periods of time sitting at a desk, working out has really helped me to stay active, relieve stress and keep in shape. During 2016 I managed to achieve and maintain a body shape I’m relatively happy with. No one’s ever completely satisfied with the way that they look but I’m definitely the most body confident I’ve ever been. With a new year comes a new perspective, I don’t like to set resolutions so instead I’m going to set some realistic goals for me to work towards in 2017.  View Post

I’m back with my first post of 2017 which is a very appropriate, cliche reflection post of the last year. I was umming and ahhing about writing this one as I was glad to see the back of 2016 and start afresh. I didn’t feel like I had a great year but it’s always good to reflect and be grateful of the positive things that happened. View Post

ParkRun Stewart Park

Last month I decided I needed a new focus in my life. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved to have a goal to keep me focused and give me purpose. After hearing about parkrun, a weekly event that hosts timed 5km runs for free across the world, I decided it was time to step out of the gym and head down to my local park for a run in the autumn sunshine. As a complete newbie to long distance running, I thought I’d share my experience with you. View Post

It was my birthday on Tuesday and to celebrate the occasion, my gorgeous friends surprised me with a trip to Amsterdam on the ferry last weekend. The last time we visited the Netherlands was for my 21st birthday so for us to go again I was over the moon. Today I’ve got a short and sweet photo diary of our trip to show you what we got up to and show you how much of a beautiful city Amsterdam is.  View Post
