Easter has always been one of my favourite holidays. I think enjoying Easter happens in two phases of our life, first when we're little and second when we have children of our own.
I'm sort of in the phase where Easter is pretty boring and all I look forward to is the chocolate egg my mum buys me! Yes, I'm 18 and yes, I still get Easter eggs :) I'll be in America this Easter and I think Lila is still too young to understand it all, but hopefully next year I can really enjoy it with her.
One of my favourite memories when growing up was going to France during the Easter holidays (I wish there was another word for Easter because I feel like I'm really shoving it in your faces;) and all my cousins would come round for an Easter egg hunt. In France, it's not the rabbits that "bring the eggs", it's bells that "drop" eggs in the garden.
Rabbits is probably more believable but as a child I never questioned why bells were bringing the Easter eggs, I just woke up in the morning and impatiently waited till everyone got there. Then scoffed my face with chocolate for the next 2 days :)
Since the novelty of Easter has worn off over the years, I get overly excited to bake something eastery (not a word, but it works) every year.
I've seen many variations of these "surprise" pound cakes and have wanted to bake it since I first remember seeing it. Since Easter is right around the corner and I got a cute little rabbit cookie cutter for Christmas, I thought it was the perfect time to give it a whirl.
It requires a little more effort than the usual pound cake but it's totally worth it when you inside and see a cute little rabbit in the middle. I'm not going to lie, I didn't go as smoothly as I had hope but when I cut into it and saw the bunny, all the hard work was worth it.
I made a silly mistake. I put some batter on the bottom of the tin because I thought that would help the bunnies stay in place but instead they starting poking through the top and the batter almost overflowed. Whoops. However, it all ended well.
Icing. Not only does it taste amazing and keep the cake moist but it also hides all imperfections in your cake. I didn't want any of those bunny ears showing at the top to ruin the surprise inside.
You can always use boxed pound cake mix but I used a homemade recipe instead because let's face it homemade cake always trumps cake from a mix.
I adapted the recipe from Southern Living
I hope you get the time to bake this, this Easter. Don't be scared off because it's not as complicated as I thought it would be. Yes, it's hard and yes, it takes a lot of time but when you cut into it and see how cool it looks, you'll be so happy you did it. Plus it's super cute and sure to be a crowd pleaser :)
1) Hi!! Did this week drag for anyone else? I feel like it just went on and on forever! I can't say I've got anything to be excited for this weekend but at least I can catch up on some sleep and school work.
2) I just came home from my friend's gig, a few of the boys in my friendship group have a band and this was their second gig! It was a chilled one and I love watching them play, you can always see when people truly feel the music and enjoy what they're singing :)
3) On my run last week all I could stare at was how beautiful it was. It definitely made my run go very quickly because the colours were changing the whole time!!
4) I did a little reorganising of my Pinterest boards for recipes. Before I had one board called "Sweet Tooth" with over 2,000 recipes of just about any baked treat and it was just becoming to uncategorised and messy for my liking. So I created 5 different boards (eg cupcakes, cookies etc). It'll take me a while to get back to 2,000 recipes but I feel so much better. Yep, I'm officially that crazy person who organises their Pinterest boards.
5) Our boiler broke yesterday and it's quite cold to say the least. I was so cold earlier so the onesie came back out of the wardrobe. Onesie, winter duvet and fluffy blanket. The struggle is real, folks ;)
6) Baked beans on a baked potato with melted cheese is the best!! Ultimate comfort food for me is this. Quite British though but don't diss it till you try it!
7) I'm finally getting a haircut tomorrow! It's been about 4 months since my last one, I think. I'm truly blessed with some great hair because I can go months without a haircut but maybe 4 months is pushing it slightly ;)
8) This made me laugh way more than it should have. Maybe because I'm not really a fan of Kanye or overly confident people in general. He just annoys me so much and needs to get over himself already. Enough said.
9) Lila did the funniest thing on Facetime the other day. She held the phone and ran around the house, giggling and didn't let anyone else speak to me. She would scream/cry every single time the phone gotten taken from her. It was so cute!
10) Some of the professional pictures we took back in February came back this week and I was so excited to see them!! I can't even express in words how obsessed I am about the picture with our converse!! I've put a few of my favourites in a gallery below for you guys to see :)
11) This quote sums up how I feel about some people right now. I think we all have those phases of really disliking people. Numerous have gotten on the wrong side of me and I've just decided to ignore them and move on. Being the bigger person always works best.
12) Always have to end on a even number, I clearly had a lot of random thoughts on my mind to share with you all today. I really wanted to get this posted on Friday but it's 12:04pm here but if you're in America then it's still Friday so technically it's all good ;)
Some questions for you-
How often do you get your haircut?
Is there a quote that perfectly describes how you feel right now?
Do you like Kanye? Or is it just me that finds him super arrogant & annoying?
What's your favourite "comfort food" dinner?
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and I'll be back on Monday! :)
Life has been anything but easy the last couple of months but just like everyone else, I've pushed through the shitty parts. I think as a blogger, I'm made to feel like I have to have my whole life together and show you all the amazing parts of my life. Truth is, that's a pretty damn tiring performance to keep up and sometimes writing an honest post is what makes me feel so much better. (I have no idea where I'm going with this post, I'm writing it right now and everything I'm thinking is just spilling out, so just go along with it;)
It's beyond unrealistic to always be happy and upbeat, which honestly I am. Most days. We all get to the point where we sit down and think "holy crap that's actually been a really hard day to get through" and sometimes those days seem to happen a lot. I've had a lot of those days recently. And that's okay. I've gotten through them and you just keep pushing through. But sometimes you get a bit stuck. And maybe I'm stuck right now, in a tough spot.
I'm an unbelievably honest person and sometimes I don't like sitting here, typing a post with humour and happiness as if everything is great, when it's not. Every now and then, I think it's important to show people some trueness and honesty. Because I'm far from perfect, I don't have half of my crap together like it seems and it's not always easy to put out that I do.
Maybe I'm feeling extra soppy today because I got lied to again by someone I trust. That's a completely different post in itself but sometimes all you need is one final push before you're tipped over the edge. It's not even the lie that's pissed me off because I'm an understanding person and get that people lie. No one likes the truth, I get that. But it's made me feel too trustworthy.
We all have battles we have to overcome but most times the biggest battle is the one in our heads. I like many others have stress from school, friends and family problems yet the biggest battle I deal with is everything going on up in my head. I, like many others, have personal issues that I have to battle and one day I hope the blog is somewhere I can share these things and help others with the same problems. Right now, I'm in the "thick" of overcoming those issues and it would not be helpful to anyone.
My biggest problem is I care too much. I never used to think that was possible so I began caring about everyone and gave all I had to everyone that needed me. That was years ago when I started doing that and I've still not learnt that by caring too much, I'll be the one that gets hurt. I will honestly do anything for anyone and at some point that does become a problem. I have to learn when to put myself first and realise caring too much won't hurt them but it'll hurt me.
It's the one thing I love/dislike most about myself. I was going to say hate, but every time I use that word, I hear my mum saying "Jasmine, hate is a very strong word you can't hate something so much, rather strongly dislike". Yes, I'm 18 and I still listen to those very wise words my mum once told me.
And the fact is I shouldn't hate how compassionate I am because it does make me a better person but it also makes me an extremely easy person to lie to and use. I'm not a stupid person, at least I like to think I'm somewhat brainy, but when it comes to caring about someone all of my logic gets thrown out the window.
So when my friend today treated me like a clueless idiot I wasn't even mad at them, I was angry at myself. Because it hit me, that I'm the one letting people walk all over me, I'm the one putting way too much faith into people and I'm the one getting involved by helping too many people at once. It's always been something that has come naturally, almost as if I can't help myself but today I realised that I can. I can say NO and I can take care of myself for once.
I don't know when I decided to give everyone else the power to hurt me, but I realised I can take it back. We all get hurt by people in life, that's just something we can't avoid. But my gosh do we have a certain say about who we give the power to hurt us.
Maybe life isn't easy right now, but is it ever easy? Some days the road is just a heck of a lot bumpier than it usually is. All I do know is I can't sit behind a computer screen and fake all the happiness because that's not me. Some people choose to never share there pain and heartache on their blog and I respect that but again that's not me. I guarantee someone, somewhere reading this is probably feeling the same.
I think when we see other people go through something that we think is worse, we feel guilty for feeling sad or helpless. I know I do that but guess what maybe my troubles aren't as big as some peoples but that doesn't mean they hurt any less and on the other hand, my problems are much bigger than some peoples but that doesn't mean I take away their happiness with my pain. It's only human to feel things and you should embrace what ever you may or may not be feeling.
Life is all about balance. Balancing the good and the bad. Balancing the happy and the sad. Balancing the truth and the lies. Balancing the painful moments and the joyful moments. It's all a balancing act, that we're bound to get wrong. And sometimes the scale tips more to one side than the other and that's okay. I just hope you know that it won't stay imbalanced forever.
1) Happy Friday!! I want to apologise for the lack of posts this week, it's been a crazy busy one as usual! But I cannot wait to sleep in tomorrow morning and have a chill day, it's exactly what I need!
2) I've just gotten home from a choir concert and my voice is practically gone! I've got another one on Tuesday and as much as I love choir, it's quite draining! A whole day of rehearsals and then actually performing is just about as tiring as it gets!
3) I feel like after a week there are so many things I need to say and that's why I've done a list because I don't like having loads of random thoughts unorganised. I officially sound like a crazy person, I'm just overtired!
4) Speaking of tired, I went to the doctor on Tuesday. He's put me on some medication to help with chronic pain and the major side effect was sleepiness. He was definitely not lying. I was tired before with being sick & school but now I'm beyond tired. I think I've fallen asleep everyday when I've gotten home. Hopefully this body of mine will sort itself out soon!
5) Two weeks till half term!!! At this point I'm counting down the days! Sleep, sleep and more sleep is what I'm looking forward to most, well perhaps seeing my family should come before sleep ;)
6) I downloaded this game called 94% and it's pretty addicting. You're basically given a theme and have to think of words that relate to it. It's a lot better than how I'm describing it, just download it and then thank me ;)
7) I'm going to Nando's for lunch with Delina on Sunday and I can't wait!! I've been craving Nando's for so long now and it's pretty cheap too, so it makes it even better. Plus I can't wait to just have some quality time with my bff!
8) I'm not typically a bath person but I was home alone last Saturday, didn't feel well and I was so stressed and remembered that my friend had bought me a bath bomb for my bday! Well it was probably one of the most relaxing moments ever, it was perfect! I'm such a busy person that I often forget to slow down and relax!
9) I've had a sore throat for about two weeks now but nothing else has happened. Usually a sore throat means I'm getting a cold but nope! Clearly just a little virus or something that is sticking to my throat, so I've been drinking way too much tea!
10) The best part about Easter is these babies! My gosh, are they amazing! I feel bad for all of you that don't live in England and can't have one of these Malteaser bunnies! They're one of my favourite chocolates, so much better than a normal Malteaser :)
11) I'm hoping next week will be slightly less stressful school wise and that I'll get some free time to write at least twice! I've been an awful blogger but unfortunately that'll likely happen more towards exams and then after it'll go back to normal, hopefully :)
12) It's 10:30pm and I'm not actually sure how I'm still awake but I'm off to bed now! I hope you all have a great weekend and get to relax :)
Phew, I am so happy this week is over. It's been a rough one and it didn't get any better when I found out some heartbreaking news concerning someone I know so it was an emotional day yesterday! It's made me truly realise how quickly things can change and how much we should all appreciate life a lot more! Give your family a hug tonight and let them know how much you love them because you never know what might happen!
It's been a long time since I've had a good old chat with you all about how I'm getting on with the health problems I've been having and how my running has been affected.
It's been about 4 months now since I've stopped running regularly and it SUCKS!! I have some days where I'm really hard on myself and others when I just feel plain old sorry for myself.
I think what makes this so darn difficult is that I don't know what the hell is wrong. It's not like I've got a broken foot, that has to be in a cast and is monitored until it's healed. It's in my stomach/uterus area and nothing has showed up. I just call it "the thing" since I have no clue what it is or could be.
I'm a slight (okay a huge) hypochondriac and I always worry, most of the time it's completely fine and I need to chill the heck out. But this has been going on for 4 months now and I feel like I have a right to be worried, paranoid, concerned and stressed. With that said, I'm still none the wiser on what to do to help myself. Most days it's a case of seeing how I feel and if I feel fine come 6pm, I'll go on a run but most days I'm exhausted by then or in too much pain.
The only help I've been given is that if the pain is so sharp, persistent and unbearable as it was the first time then I must go to A&E straight away. I don't like taking pain medication for anything but a headache or something I know will go away with medication. Nothing helps this. It's a pain in my right groin that comes and goes for a couple hours at a time. Most times it's a dull nagging pain but when it's bad, it's a sharp, blinding pain. Not fun. Besides being painful, it's incredibly irritating and I have no idea when the pain will hit. It also has some other symptoms like nausea, headaches, tiredness and not being able to eat. Which we all know I like to do ;) I seriously gained some self control in the last few months, it's quite shocking how little I can eat of something now!
I miss proper running SO much! Most days I want to go for a run mentally more than physically. There's something running does for my state of mind that no other exercise can (except dance & ice-skating), it calms me down and gives me a chance to recharge mentally. It's the one moment in my day, where I don't have to be there for someone or help someone out. It's the one thing I do for myself and helps me cope. I feel more overwhelmed with life when I don't get the chance to run.
The internet says that "chronic pain" is any pain that has lasted longer than 12 weeks, I'm only a month and half away from having had this pain for 6 months. That thought scares me a lot. It's the uncertainty of the whole situation that gives me anxiety. I don't like the thought of something being seriously wrong and I don't want "this thing" to get worse.
I think after the last couple of weeks, which have been overwhelming to say the least, I'm just fed up with it. The days I need to run the most have unfortunately been the days where my stomach hurts the most. Blahh. That's how I feel summed up in one word.
Although I may have a whine here and there, I'm generally an extremely positive person so it's been a bit difficult to find the positives in this situation. Umm I get to be extremely lazy some days because the tiredness is out of control when my stomach hurts, we'll take that as a positive ;)
Anywho back to the running. I can run less than a mile now before something starts to hurt. I'm trying really hard to listen to my body and not push it too much. But that's easier said than done. It's extremely hard when you want to get better at something so badly but health problems are holding you back. It's a battle between what you want and what your body needs.
I do know that I can't be stupid about this. I have to appreciate the days where my body allows me to run, even if it's only half a mile. I have a doctors appointment booked for next Tuesday and although I don't think they'll be able to help me much, it might give me more of a peace of mind.
What will happen will happen. I've realised I can't control, or even predict when I'll be in pain. Does that frustrate me? Urm heck yes!! But I have to be grateful for the days where I'm not in pain and I just have to stay positive on the days where I feel like crap.
So with all that being said, I guess I'm not any wiser on what has happened to me. But this has taught me to truly listen to my body and learn when it is telling me to slow the hell down. And to appreciate all that my body does do for me. Because it does a lot and although I may not be able to run, I can still go about my daily routine on most days. I have the occasional day where even going up the stairs is a struggle but then I slow down and give myself time.
I'm looking forward to when I can get back into running seriously and train for a 10K or even a half-marathon but until then I'm going to be doing my 1 mile runs as often as I can!! 1 mile isn't long but it's just enough to keep me sane ;)
This weekend was truly the best. One of those weekends that I wish I could have every week. On Friday evening my best friend from where I grew up came over with her mum to spend the weekend. And it was non-stop laughing and smiling the entire time.
On Friday night, my guy friends who are in a band had their first gig. So after dinner, Hollie and I walked to the heath and had a couple of drinks whilst they played. Umm still so weird I can legally buy drinks?!?!
Hollie is truly the best and didn't mind going back to my friends house for an after party, we had a fab night and were very very hyper!!
On Saturday morning we got up at 7:30, after going to bed at almost 3am, we were all feeling pretty rough but we had tickets to the Ice Bar at 11:30! I highly highly recommend going to the Ice Bar, if you're near one, it was such a cool experience!!
P.S. Shout out to my mum today because it's her birthday!! Happy Birthday mamma, you're the absolute best and I'm so glad you're my best friend and always here for me! Love you:)
After the Ice Bar we still had loads of time to kill before our dinner reservations at 5:30! So we decided to go to Tower Bridge! None of us had been up there since they put in the glass bit and I was so excited. That stuff doesn't freak me out at all and I couldn't wait to walk over it :)
I wasn't scared at all but considering I was slightly hungover the river was making me slightly nauseous aha!! But it was seriously cool seeing cars & people going underneath us!
After visiting Tower Bridge we went to the restaurant and got some cocktails to get the party started ;) We sat and had a good laugh before getting seated at our table. I tell you, my best friend and her mum make me laugh ALL the time! The four of us did not stop laughing all weekend long! I got a huge pie which was SO delicious! The mash potatoes were slightly weird but I still ate it!
We just finished dinner in enough time to walk to the theatre and get in our seats before they announced the show was going to start. I've been wanting to see Billy Elliot for a long time now and it was amazing. The boy who played Billy was truly incredible! He could sing, dance and act- I wish I was that amazing! It was his last performance as Billy and it was an amazing finale!
Gosh did I miss ballet after I watched that, it made me want to get in a studio and dance again! Biggest regret of mine was quitting ballet, it was such a passion of mine! Maybe one day ;)
Sunday we were in no rush to wake up and I don't think I managed to get out of bed till 11! Hollie, her mum and I went to Tescos so I could get stuff for mum's birthday cake, whilst mum was at home making roast chicken for lunch, yum!!!
In the afternoon I had brownies to bake and then we watched home videos from my birthday parties, because Hollie was in some of them! It was hilarious to watch that with my best friend since we were tiny little sassy kids ;)
I love this girl so much<3 It was such an amazing weekend and I sure do miss her! Hopefully we'll see each other again before the summer holidays!
It's another busy week over here and another busy weekend! I have so many posts that I have planned but it's finding the time to actually finish them and post them! It's going to be a quiet couple months until the end of May when my exams are over but I promise I'll most at least once a week, hopefully twice!
With that said I'm off to finish celebrating mum's birthday and then I'm off to bed early since we're both exhausted and still recovering from our non-stop fun weekend :)
Hello hello guys, I hope you all had a fab weekend. Mine was certainly a crazy one and I finally had some fun after that stressful week. I didn't really feel like doing the whole "weekend recap" today but I decided to share something with you all that I wrote a couple weeks ago.
I love reading posts of people writing letters to themselves or something along those lines and thought I would share something that I wrote for my sister. It's not something I had thought about posting but thought that someone may relate to it. I know she won't get to read this for a long time but I hope one day when she's having a rough day, she can read this and find comfort in it.
It was my 18th birthday a couple weeks ago. People aren't kidding when they say it goes quickly, boy does it. A lot has happened in 18 years, some good, some amazing, some bad and some horrible. I will have already told you most of these things or will one day tell you! I've learnt a lot too, more than I ever thought I would.
I've learnt that no one can has the right to make you feel any less beautiful than you really are. My god are you beautiful and you always will be. Make up or no make up. Hair in a bun or hair nicely curled. Sweatpants or a dress. You will always look beautiful because you are you. Your beauty isn't determined by how you look, it's determined by how you act and how you treat others. As long as you are caring, compassionate, sweet, kind and understanding, you'll be unbelievably beautiful. And no one has the right to tell you differently.
I've learnt that painful things happen. No matter how much you try to avoid them. Life will always throw things at you that you wish you didn't have to deal with. But that's life. It always used to piss me off when people would say "that's life, you'll be okay"! Well guess what? Sometimes you won't be okay and that's okay too. I once said to Delina that the whole "that's life" seems to happen more to some than others. It's not fair, I know but in the end you'll always be okay. We all struggle, you just have to always stay positive and battle the wars you're given. Never give up because it does get easier, believe me it does. I didn't think it would. I would hate people patronising me with that statement but it truly does. There's always a bright side, find it wherever it may be.
I've learnt that life is way to short to worry about every single thing. Especially the things you can't change. I've spent countless hours worrying about everything, none of which I could change. You can't always control everything, let life do its thing sometimes. Step back and take a breath and think before you make any rash decisions. Things can wait, you should never feel under pressure to decide something that you aren't comfortable with. Be brave and stand up for yourself, make the decisions that you want, not what someone else wants.
I've learnt that your kindness isn't determined by the big things you do but rather the little things that no one notices. The little smiles you give people, holding the door for someone, giving someone a hug or paying for someone's coffee. These everyday little things are truly what kindness is about. Don't get me wrong the big things are amazing but it's the little things that help keep the world a kinder place. Always give more than you think you can. Never be selfish or ignorant enough to not know the suffering that is surrounding us. If you can do something to help someone then do it, I promise it will help you more than them.
I've learnt that you can't have your happiness depend on how other people treat you. You have to create your happy. Other people will of course make you happy but don't depend on others to make yourself feel good. They'll let you down. Be happy with who you are, be happy with your own company and be happy with the person you're becoming.
I've learnt that loving yourself is the hardest thing you'll ever do. But it's an unbelievably important part of your life. You don't have to love everything about yourself, because honestly who does?! But loving who you are will always make you enjoy life more. You don't need boys to make you feel pretty or worth something. You're worth something because you are you. Love yourself first before you let anyone else love you, it'll make everything else easier. Be kind to your body and your mind. It's going to go through enough, appreciate all that it does for you.
I've learnt that you can only help & save yourself. No one, and I mean no one, will fight your battles for you. If you want to overcome something, you're going to have to be strong and do it yourself. Too many people want to be saved but you're truly the only person who can save you. Don't give up because the going gets tough or you think no one wants to help you. There will be loads of people who want to help you but ultimately you're the only one that can push yourself through that hard time.
I've learnt that your story isn't anymore important than the person's sat next to you. We're all important and if we took more time to realise that everyone has been through something that's changed them, the world would be a nicer place. Everyone faces tough times, don't pity yourself because there is always someone out there who is going through something a million times worse. But also realise that it's okay for you to be sad and that your suffering is not for nothing. You will become so much stronger and you will value people a lot more. Never judge someone based on their past struggles because it's made them who they are now.
I've learnt so many things and I'm sure in the next 18 years, I'll learn a million new things but the most important thing I've realised is that life is going to go on. Whether you put a smile on your face or not. The days carry on and people's lives carry on. Make the most of every minute that you have, don't spend you're time regretting or worrying about everything. The world doesn't pause when you have problems, you just have smile through the crap and find a way to get through it. Live freely when you have the chance and don't let someone steal your happiness from you.
Like I said, a lot has happened in my 18 years and even though some of it has caused me great pain, I wouldn't change any of it. I've become stronger, wiser, more forgiving, kinder and more understanding of people's struggles. I know that whatever life throws at me, here on out, I can handle it because I've already handled a lot. I love you Lila and I hope that when you turn 18, you've experienced so much happiness, joy and love but also heartbreak, sadness and misfortune because they teach us so many things. Nothing is granted in this world but one thing's for sure life is what you make it. So make it amazing lil sis :)
Hiii guys!! I'm so sorry that I've been MIA for a while, it's been practice (mock) exam week this week and it's been busy, busy, busy since I got home! Thank goodness it's all over now and I can rest this weekend before getting back to normal.
I got home safely on Sunday afternoon and did everything I could to stay awake. Although I did sleep for a little bit before heading over to Delina's for a catch up. I tell ya, this jet lag has been kicking my butt this time around. I'm still absolutely exhausted and I'm sure all these exams weren't helping. I've napped almost every single day!!
I thought I would share a few last things from my last days in America :)
Laura took me to get my nails done and it felt so great to have my nails look good. My feet are usually so gross and I never bother but for the first time since I was about 10, maybe, they look pretty good! Hershey's cookies & creme was clearly the popular request this time around ;)
Pretty much the only 3 things I drank for the whole week!
Best salmon burger I've ever had and some pretty delicious Mexican food for my last meal in the States!
Obsessed with this scarf I got at Old Navy, it's so cozy and goes with everything!! Whilst I was in America, my main man turned 17!! We're both so grown up now it's crazy!
My flight home was less than 7 hours, wooo!! We had the tail wind behind us so it cut the journey by almost 2 hours! Saying bye is never easy but April will be here in no time, only 5 weeks now! I'll be a mess in April because I won't be going back till August but thank goodness for Facetime, right?!!
This candle smells heavenly, unfortunately it gives my mum a headache but I still love it!! My hair has been super weird this last week, it won't go into a normal bun, so annoying!! I've just noticed the awful bags under my eyes, jet lag's a b*tch!! The moment you realise there is another layer in the chocolate box has got to be the best moment in the world. They're all gone now but man were they good!!
I got these new running leggings in America at Pink and I'm obsessed with them. Classic in the front, party in the back ;) I managed to go on two runs this week, YAY!! It's still a hit or a miss unfortunately but I'll write full recap soon!
I hope within the next couple of weeks I can start to get back into my usual blogging routine, life has just gotten in the way to the last couple of weeks! I'm off to London for lunch tomorrow and then have a few girlfriends coming round to celebrate my birthday! Super excited for a non-stop fun day! I'll hopefully be back on Monday to fill you all in! Have a super fabulous weekend :)
It's okay to admit you're overwhelmed & struggling
Change the world, one act of kindness at a time
A little bit of honesty
What to do when you lack running motivation
Red Velvet Brownies with peanut butter glaze
White chocolate & caramel cookie bars
Broccoli, Cheese and Onion Tart
Changed forever- the power of helping others
