My 5 things on a Friday


Hi, how are you on this Friday? Good I hope — and I hope you have a nice weekend ahead. We’ve got a fairly quiet weekend over here, we will be spoiling Daddy on Sunday for Father’s Day, but apart from that no real plans.

Lottie is still out of action with her broken leg (bless her) so we won’t be venturing far from home and making sure she’s ok and well cared for.

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

1/ I am massively into Love Island now and am WELL enjoying the drama and gossip! Are you watching? Dave is using any excuse not to watch it (lol) he’s even been exercising at 9pm at night. It’s getting more and more juicy as the days go on, isn’t it?

2/ Run Forest Run. So my friend has talked me into doing a 10k race this September. At first I was like “Errrrrrrrr NO WAY on this earth, thanks but no thanks”. And then as a few other friends started saying they’d do it I kind of changed my mind and agreed. So this week I have started some more serious training and have been doing a few 5k runs. It’s actually heaps better when you’ve got a race to aim for, it does make you go faster and go out running more. I’ll keep you posted on my training progress! So far I have sore knees!

3/ I thought Kelly Brook’s comments about Mother’s being less professional with regarding to working & childcare were really daft this week. She is of course entitled to her opinion, but as she’s not a Mother herself I think it’s difficult for her to pass judgement on this issue. If you want more on this then go read what The Pool said here.

4/ I read this article this week on The Everygirl, on ‘How to be yourself in a world that wants to change you’ and it was such good advice. I could relate so much, especially with the over-analysing and on getting to know yourself better. It’s hard to stay true to yourself, as well as truly know your own likes & dislikes these days, (especially when you’re a blogger / influencer and you’re looking at a lot of content online) so this article was a good read.

5/ 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.

Happy weekend guys, have a good one and I’ll see you again next week.

Love, Jess x
