My 5 things on a Friday


Hi guys, how are you on this very HOT Friday? Good I hope — and I hope you have a lovely weekend planned.

We broke up from school this time last week and so we’ve just done our first full week. The weather has been incredible and we’ve spent a lot of time splashing about in the garden, as well as a few walks out and about. We also went to see The Incredibles 2 this week and the twins loved it (me too!).

Lottie’s leg is recovering well and she’s been bending it a lot this week. Fantastic progress. It’s definitely been good letting her get more confident at home this week.

So as it’s Friday (YAY!) here are the 5 things that I wanted to share with you guys from me this week:

1/ Love Island. I’ve enjoyed this series a lot. I think it’s almost finishing though as there seems to be very few couples left and I’ve seen a few things that say it’s got another week to go. I think (and hope) Jack and Dani win. What do you think?

2/ 9k done. So my running journey continues and I finally did a 9k run this week. I am SO proud of myself because I’ve only been running properly for the last 6 weeks. I’m really pleased with my progress. It’s not easy in this heat (pass the water bottle), and I’m not fast, but I’m running it and that’s all that matters. I need some proper running shoes though as mine are giving me a lot of issues. I think I’ll go and look at getting some fitted asap. I read a fab blog post by Ana at BlueBird Kisses about starting running, as a Mum, which I’m sure you’ll enjoy if you’re thinking about it/starting out.

3/ Hair care. I had my hair done this week as my lovely hairdresser fitted me in before her holidays. As well as a cut, I had a treatment put in and some more blonde bits. I have been washing it less and less lately and letting it naturally curl itself and so using hardly any heat on it. I feel so much better about it and love the length right now.


4/ Holidays. There’s lots of happy people either on holiday right now, or about to go away soon (UK or abroad). Our Majorca vacay is less than 4 weeks away and we are all getting SO excited. Starting to buy things such as suncream and swimsuits and washing all the clothes. Eeeeeeeeeeek.

5/ Clothes. And finally…here are the clothes and accessories that I’ve got in my online shopping basket to hopefully check-out on a few new things this weekend too. They’re fab, and I hope you agree.

Happy weekend guys and I’ll see you again next week.

Love, Jess x
