There’s something about Fridays. No other days holds the air of excitement like a Friday. The week’s finished and if you’re lucky you have 2 days free!
This weekend will be a little sad. I’m saying see you later to one of my few friends I have in Barcelona as she’s moving back to Germany. We don’t see each other as much as we used to, but it’s one of those friendships where you don’t see each other for ages and pick up where you left off. I’m happy sad for her. Happy as she’s returning back to Germany which she’s wanted for a long time. Sad as I’ll miss her!
Anyways, , Friday Favourites nearly on a Friday for once! Things that have been making smile this week or have caught my eye.
Fabletics ES/Spain Summer Selfie Winner!
Monday afternoon I received a big surprise. I’d been selected as one of 3 Fabletics ES Instgram winners as part of their Summer Selfie campaign! The rules where show off your Fabletics attire training and you win a free outfit! They didn’t mind I use Fabletics UK with my mum forwarding parcels on due to only bring able to order in Spain with a Spanish card (I have one, but it’s strictly for utilities). They even credited enough to cover shipping when I choose my outfit! It was a great way to start the week! Thank you Fabletics ES!
TRX squat to shoulder flys and cross body mountain climbers
TRX squat to flys really felt like they opened my back and shoulders this week. From a squat position holding the TRX handles facing in with arms slightly bend, jump out wide to a sumo squat taking the arms wide (keeping shoulders shoulders down, chest open and abs in!) and then jump back in. I think I grew a few centimetres afterwards! (I know I’ve seen them somewhere for a link but I can’t find it!)
Similar to regular mountains climbers, cross body mountains climbers you take or sweep opposite knee to elbow. These burn! I always feel them in my abductors, shoulders, obliques and core!
Taken after the thunderstorm and rainbows
Usually after training clients in the park, I take a little bike tour of the park. I always seem to end up by the boating pond. Something scared these guys and they were off!
The Lion and Hyena Whisper
Not even my boys great me like this!
Like I need an excuse to go into Zara Home, these caught my eye while I was looking for some thing for my friends baby due soon. It’s always a fail keeping hands in pockets so I don’t touch and end up buying something. So maybe I do need an excuse! Unfortunately I think I picked up a dud pair. There are meant to be 4 different designs after realising 2 were the same after I ‘used’ one and checked their website. B*gger. Still I like them, however after checking their website they have some more tropical ones with birds on that have caught my eye. Well, you need a few coasters in every room right?
Men In Black Safety Defenders Air New Zealand Air Safety Video
Cheesy but fun! The All Blacks team up with Air New Zealand to demonstrate the usual air safety demo you can usually just see. But wait, did I?
D couldn’t wait for his new Kong Kickeroo’s packaging to be removed and Mr Aj’s been cooling off on the balcony.
What’s been making you smile this week? Have a great weekend!

Wow congrats on the instagram feature and win! Nothing better than scoring free clothes haha and I’m sorry to hear about your friend moving back but at least Germany and Spain are kind of close to each other and there’s always Skype 🙂 And how good is that Air NZ video! They had another one based on Lord of the Rings a while ago and that was pretty cool too. Hope you had a great weekend Nat!
Also I just noticed, did you get a new header on your blog? It’s such a great photo 🙂
I did! You’re the first person to notice 🙂 I’ve been wanting to change it for a while and I liked how clean your theme was. So yeah, I kinda stalked your site for a while! The photo is of one of the beaches here in the winter and my first time playing with aperture on my camera 🙂
Thank you! Freebies are always a nice surprise! You’re right, we can always Skype, but we email or message when we remember. We’re (I’m) not very good at keeping in touch on a regular basis apart from here! I’ll have to check out the Lord of the Rings flight video! Have a great week too!
Congrats! That’s awesome!
😃 Thank you!
Yes Big Congrats on Your win! How you did selfie while standing on your head blows me away! You are good Natalie!!
If I could stand on my head, I would tell everyone! That’s one the other ladies who won! I can just do handstands if there’s a wall behind! Thank you anyways!
Silly me… I thought that was you in all three pics. Dylan and I just watched your video on the Lion Whisperer. That was amazing! She loved it. I can’t imagine those huge cats jumping up on me ahhhhhh!
🙂 Their paws look so soft, but I would’t like to be on the receiving end of a swipe!
It would probably knock me down! 🙂
Congrats on your Fabletics win!
Thank you 😁
