Hello, January! We’re into a new year and it’s time to do all those things that we’ve wanted to do for ages and for me. one of them is reading. I was bought some lovely books for Christmas and I can’t wait to get stuck in to them and do a little bedtime reading instead of scrolling. Here are the three books that I’ll be indulging in over January, they’re all different subjects but they’re all going to be super useful.
In the UK in 2015, it was found that 68% of men and 58% of women were either obese or overweight – this is way too high,isn’t it? It shouldn’t be too surprising to hear that 2/3rds of Brits admitted to either being on a diet all or for most of the time. Of course, the topics of healthy eating and weight loss are massively popular talking points at the moment! They’re on every channel and in every magazine, aren’t they? According to The Telegraph, 33% of resolution makers want to lose weight, and 32% want to eat more healthily. With this in mind, MaxiMuscle investigate what the biggest diet trends could be in 2018:
For 2018 I’m not really going to set myself any resolutions or anything too serious, I know I want to try and get on the property ladder this year, I know that I want to actually use my recipe books more and I know that I want to continue progressing in my career and learning but I’m pretty certain that these things will happen of their own accord! But, for my blog, this is something that, of course, I have to work on myself if I want it to grow and improve so here are a few goals, aims and objectives for 2018 and my little blog.
For my last post of 2017 I wanted to tell you all about a super sweet event that the lovely Jess arranged as part of her BumbleBFF Queen Bee appointment! She is definitely the perfect Queen Bee for the blogger babes of Notts and she’s doing a fab job. Let’s get down to the last festive post of this year, a Christmas themed afternoon tea at the Pudding Pantry in Nottingham.
Disclaimer, before we get into this post. This is 100% a post that is only, and I mean it, only about a new sassy pair of sweatpants and a trip to Nando’s. So, if it’s a thought provoking, clickable, readable post that you’re after and you don’t want to hear about the new Nando’s pitta, leave now. I am chilling the hell out over Christmas and popping out the odd cute little post about what I’m up to and that’s about it. Of course I’m thinking about posts for the new year but I definitely don’t want to use all of my *incredible* ideas before January hits so, here’s a super simple insight into my life recently. It’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow and the last thing we all need is stress and opinions so, here’s a blog post about chicken and elasticated waistbands.
Christmas break has been really fun this year, it’s been packed full of cute activities and all the festive feels. Daytime beers, Christmas tree festivals, the panto, snacks all the time, seeing my favourite people for brunch and apparently only wearing monochrome outfits with statement cross body bags.
Sorry, I can’t. I’m washing my hair.
Does anyone actually ever use that hilarious excuse? Maybe, I don’t know but I might start. I usually wash my hair every two days and then liberally spray my entire head in dry shampoo every other day. I used to wash my hair every day before dry shampoo was a thing and I am so glad we have all moved with the times because I just couldn’t be bothered to wash it every day these days. Sleep is definitely more of a necessity! My Sunday routine often consists of face masks and hair washing (post bathroom cleaning – obviously!).
Let’s just get into it, it’s the end of the year (but, actually how?!), and we’ve probably all got thoughts about the previous year and wishes for the year to come. I’ve definitely not thought about 2018 yet if I’m totally honest, apart from my resolution to actually use my 1 million recipe books that I have sitting on my Billy bookcase. Instead, I’ve been thinking about 2017 and what’s been going on this year. Here are 5 thoughts from yet another year that’s flown by.
Loch Fyne’s latest campaign is all about Fish-tivities and trying something a little different this Christmas for your festive celebrations. Obviously turkey dinners are super traditional and delicious but, during December, I’m sure we all get a little bit *done* with them when they make an appearance almost every week during the run up to the big day!
