My 5 things on a Friday


Hi, how are you on this Friday? Good I hope — and I hope you have a nice weekend planned. Ours is going to consist of a few chores and swimming on Sunday. A standard but lovely family weekend ahead!

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

1/ Instagram TV…what the? So Instagram launched a new feature this week, which means that you can now upload video clips longer than the standard 60 second Instagram Stories. It is quite a different move for the app, which was initially launched for sharing photography. Now I don’t really like change…but I’m sure once I get my head around it I’ll like it. I am just currently working it all out and figuring out how to make it work for me. You can read more about it here.

2/ I’m still training for my 10k in September! I haven’t given up. I’ve managed a few 5k runs this week and am feeling fitter, healthier and more toned as a result of this new training regime. I am definitely becoming a running bore (lol), BUT am loving the buzz that you get once you’ve done the run.

3/ All white. So my absolute favourite colour to wear at the moment is white. I am loving outfits with white, tan, pale pink and neutrals. I’m on the hunt for some pretty white dresses for my holidays right now (we’re off on a family holiday to Majorca in August) so I’ll keep you posted on what I find.


4/ I don’t want to jinx it, sorry if I do, but hasn’t the weather at the start of this summer been amazing? Dave and I were saying last night how it’s hardly rained — it’s been so warm and sunny. I’m loving it to be honest and feel as though my mood is lifted when it’s glorious outside. We had the twins first sports day at school this week and the sun was shining and it was perfect. All the happy vibes.

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. There are MANY sales around at the moment so enjoy having a look through them…hope you grab a bargain.

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

Love, Jess x

    I’m not sure about IGTV as I haven’t really dipped into it yet, I’m sure it will become another social media addiction of mine.
    Well done on the running, do you run outside or on the treadmill? I’ve started running at the gym and (it’s not impressive) have just hit a target of a 3k run. I’m a beginner so this was a massive win for me I’m hoping to set a higher target each time I go to the gym.

      Hi love, so I’m running outdoors – I find it quite different to the treadmill. But in this heat I might have to do the treadmill at the gym! Good on you! 3k is brilliant! Keep me posted on how you find it xx

    Ah a family holiday to Majorca sounds bliss! We still have no fixed plans for summer, I’m not sure if we will go abroad or not, but hopefully we will sort something soon! In the meantime, this weather is amazing isn’t it? Yes to lots of BBQs and sunny evenings outside x

      I’m hoping this weather stays good for the summer holidays…we will all be able to do so much if it does! 🙂 xx
