Weekend Friday Favourites

Fluffy house socks are back en vogue! It’s now too chilly to be running barefoot around the apartment. While they may be warm and feature cute rabbit and bear faces I don’t like them! They’re a reminder the clocks go back next week, the cold, short daylight days are coming. Bring back long hot summer days please! Brr!

I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’m hoping 3rd time lucky recording my Outdoor Fitness Coach assessment works. Both previous tries, the camera stopped filming after 15mins. It has to be all in one shot for assessment. Then there was my voice. Queue Google searches how to make your voice deeper. I know it’s high, but didn’t realise it sounded like that! It sounds completely different in my head!

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things I’ve been loving this week or have caught my eye!

I have these to thank for hardly slipping in the mud running last week. Many Spartan runners wore normal trainers and had trouble getting out the mud pitsponds, baths. Lightweight and comfy, these gripped well and helped on the steep slopes down we had to run or shimmy down crab style, feet first!

I love the fit of these in the longer length leggings for everyday running errands, so I had to try out the capri length. I hardly notice them running or working out. The only thing I’m not so keen on is the high waist band, but they’re easy to roll down. They’re the equivalent to Lululemon Wunderunders and a much nicer price! I was drawn to the go fast strips version and when I purchased them, they were one of their Fit Finds. 1/2 VIP price, if you spend over a certain amount.

SunspotsChimps keeping warm in the sunshine

A definite sign it’s not longer warm are a few zoo animals seeking sunspots to warm up! The chimps, monkeys, penguins, banded mongoose, kangeroos and Patagonian mara’s were warming up in the afternoon sun this week!

Tiger Disposable Cold Compresses Tiger ice packs

I though these were renewable ice packs which is why I got them. Okay, Ice, Ice, Baby may have swung it, however they’re single use and work like the single use hand warmers. Press the inner pouch to activate the cold gel.

Internet Finds. Mostly Nat Geo as usual!

    Haha love seeing kangaroos all the way over there! We recently had daylight savings and it’s strange that you’ll be doing the same except it’s to mark the start of winter. And thanks for sharing Chriselle’s post. I haven’t read her blog in a while and you just reminded me to get back into it! Hope you have a great week Nat 🙂

      There are wallabies too and an albino one at that! They’re so cute, cuter than kangaroos! Daylight saving starts here next week, but it’s the though of it. I realised today it’s 9 weeks to Christmas, then 2-3 months of cold. Christmas would be better then end of January! Something to look forward through the cold months, but you get warm, hot sunshine, so that whinge’s wasted, ha ha! I believe Chriselle’s in Seoul for Seoul fashion week at the moment, so next week’s posts will have a different look and no doubt beauty posts! Have a great week too in warm sunshine. Lucky girl xoxo
