I AM ADDICTED TO SUGAR.
There's no two ways about it. I'm a dessert girl all the way and I can never say no to a tub of Ben & Jerry's or that slice of cheesecake for pudding with a caramel latte on the side. It wasn't much of a problem a couple of years ago when I could eat anything I want and stay a size 6 but as I've gotten older and my body has fully grown, allllll that sugar and sweet stuff is taking it's toll and the scales tell me so.
Okay, you've all seen this one before and I hate to admit it, but I've fallen head over heel for the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel.
What made me happy this week...
- I started the week with a cute little gym/brunch date with my friend Lucy and we had coffee and breakfast and it was divine. I always preferred going to the gym on my own but we're both on a mission to get super fit so we thought we'd do it together and it's going fab so far (mainly due to the fact that Lu makes me do press ups and is basically just a MASSIVE ball buster). Bring on the abs!
- Me and the other half have made lots of plans over the last couple of weeks and this week we've planned a couple of little holidays which have me feeling extremely giddy! One is going to be a lil wedding anniversary trip, and the other is going to be a big family Christmas trip (spoiler...there will be snow) and I am so excited and I'm not one to wish my life away but I want it all to hurry up! Watch this space though and I'll keep you posted on our plans...
- My delightful husband (still can't get used to that) got into University! It's only early days yet and we still don't know what's in store for us come September but I'm so bloody proud nonetheless.
- If all that wasn't enough, I also got a little promotion at work and I'm so excited to start! It also means investing in a cute work wardrobe...YAAAAAASSS.

I'm just going to put it out there and say that I think this month's Birchbox is probably my favourite one EVER.
If there's one thing I love, it's a new makeup release from one of my favourite brands, so you'll understand how bloody excited I was when a little package from Rimmel London arrived on my doorstep - and if you know how much time I spend on my eyebrows in a morning, you'll understand how I actually squealed with joy when I saw it was full of their Brow This Way eyebrow products!
In an age where everyone and everything is green and healthy and there's more HIIT loving vegans around than ever before, its easy to get caught up in fad trends for staying healthy and keeping fit.
But (and especially in my case), it's even easier to fall off the wagon and end up right back where you started being just as unhealthy with a Dominos/Costa addiction and the only exercise you're getting is walking to and from the fridge. With that in mind, I've really been making it my mission in 2017 to slowly make little changes and form habits that I can keep for life and that have really made a difference and have helped me to feel healthier and better than I've ever felt before and I want to share them with you!
