I thought I could celebrate a little after handing my coursework for my Pre and Post Natal Fitness course a little under 2 weeks ago. 12,500 words I thought I’d completed. Detailed plans for all trimesters with how to’s, modifications, progressions, adaptations, special considerations. Then I get an email, saying I’d missed the last 3 questions.
I didn’t see them! After layouts of training sessions, I didn’t scroll down enough. Thankfully my tutor was okay about it. It’s not the course I wanted to study. (more…)
Last weekend saw La Merce. A 4 day celebration of one of Barcelona’s patron saints with events held across the city including one of my favourite events here, Correfoc! A chance to run with dragons, fireworks and chase devils! It’s completely crazy and I don’t know of anywhere else where you can run under fireworks spinning above your head!
Anyways, a weekend and week catch up the following weekend because why not?
Backtracking to last Friday, the first day of autumn fall… (more…)
I hope you’re having a great last weekend of August! I don’t know about you, but growing up as soon as September started, Summer over. Back to school around the 9th September. This way of thinking kinda stuck until I moved to Spain. It took a few years to really understand how the seasons work compared to the UK. Here the Solstices and Equinoxes more or less run with the seasonal changes with a week or 2 difference. It’s like someone just switches the temperature no warning. And true Brit I start with the weather!
Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye this week (warning it’s a little on the animal side). Feel free to add your own in the comments! (more…)
I’m going to overlook and forget that in just under 2 months Summer slowly makes way Autumn Fall. Already in a few shops are winter jumpers and light padded duvet jackets. It’s July, it’s 30C outside and the shops are making me think of winter. So I’m avoiding them. That and after watching The True Cost a documentary about the fast fashion’s social, environmental and human cost, this girl is consciously moving away from fast fashion. Just as the reason why I became a vegetarian then vegan, after watching The True Cost, I don’t want some one or something to suffer for my enjoyment. I know realistically this will be tricky, but I can try.Cheeky parakeet, Barcelona Zoo
I was in the mood for a fashion documentary last Thursday and came across The True Cost on Netflix. If you love clothes, fashion and even if you don’t, I highly recommend watching it. (more…)
