I wanted to write this as a way of saying thank you to all of you who have followed my blog, yesterday I hit 50 followers, which I know isn’t a lot but to me it’s amazing that so many people are interested in what I have to say.

One of my goals that I set myself this year was to post to this blog regularly and all of you that follow me give me the motivation to do that. I wanted to do this for myself and I feel that already it has helped so much.

I am really enjoying this journey into blogging and hope to carry it on and grow this blog even more.


Weekend of relaxing!

I had the weekend off from work so I had time to relax and enjoy myself, my boyfriend also had the weekend off and so we spent the weekend together.

On Saturday we went into Southampton shopping as the boyfriend wanted some new clothes and so we went to see what he could get, I ended up treating myself to a couple of bits as well.

The first thing I found was something I have wanted for a long time a Michael Kors rose gold watch. There were a few different owns that I liked but in the end I chose this one.

I couldn’t believe the price I paid for this as it was originally £259 and I paid £93.50,so I had to have it, like I said I have been wanting one of these watches for a long time and at the price I couldn’t say no.

The second thing I got myself was something I had decided to buy, the Fitbit charge 2,i decide to buy this as my old Nike Fuelband was no longer holding its charge like it should do and instead of lasting a few days it was only lasting 1 day before I had to charge it again. After watching different YouTube videos and reading reviews I decide on the charge 2,this is my first Fitbit device and so far I love it, I wanted to get this as I am slowly getting back into my fitness since starting my new job and this along with the iPhone app to go with it tracks all my activity during the day/night giving me that little bit more motivation to keep going.

That was what I got for myself, we also went into Stakks pancake house and had some of the best pancakes I have ever had, I had mine with strawberries, cream and meringue and it was delicious, I also had a fruit smoothie as well which was just right to drink along with my pancakes.

Apart from going shopping we had a pretty relaxed weekend, watching films and TV it was great. I also have had today off work as well but my boyfriend had to work, I’ve got work tomorrow so early night for me tonight I think.

I will be writing a review post of the Fitbit charge 2 once I have used it for a few weeks, I’ve got a few post ideas for the next few weeks also.

My week!

I’ve had a good week this week.

Its been a busy one, I started my new job on Monday so my week has been taken up from learning a new job and taking everything in, but I feel so much happier now than I have done in a long time which is what I wanted, its amazing.

I was surprised on Wednesday to see that I had been nominated for The Blogger Recognition Award, this give that little extra boost that I needed this week, you can read my post on the award here. I was so happy when I seen this and didn’t expect it at all, I’ve only been blogging for a few weeks so never thought that I would get that right at this moment in time.

My mind set has changed so much over the past few weeks that I really want to start running again, I used to run 3 times a week, I had a good diet, I was a lot healthier and felt the good effects of this, slowly I stopped this and haven’t been now for about a year, but all the good things happening at the moment has made me want to do it again and get back to running up to 3 times a week, will keep you updated on that.

I want to thank everyone for following my blog at the moment there are 33 of you which I know is a small number but to me its big, I never expected or even thought that sp many people would be interested in what had to say, its such a good feeling.

I’ve got a few blog posts planned over the next few weeks that I want to do and I’m thinking of more all the time, never thought I would get into doing this like I have done this time but I’m so glad that I have.
