Brush Egg

I have a confession. When I first saw the Brush Egg in Sephora about a year ago, I hadn’t clue what it was. I came across it by the checkout outs (Sephora and their mini products by the checkouts. Always they nearly always get me!) and all in came in was a cellophane wrapper with a bar code. No description. Nada, but something said you’ll use it, so get it. 

Thinking it was a manual exfoliator I put in the queue with the other manual facial exfoliator/make cleansing better (more…)

Weekend Friday Favourites

This past week’s been crazy. Ikea trips, rearranging furniture, running all day errands, collecting race t-shirts, trying to keep my cool in the post office with a lady who had to keep repeating things and didn’t like it when I asked her to reweigh the parcel after I had to take a few things out that couldn’t be sent (creams, make up as per the law from Oct last year. I mentioned a poster would be nice, to which she dug out the leaflet saying you can’t fit all this on a poster). I should have just kept quiet and if the parcel got returned, it got returned. 

Apparently 2kg is 2kg regardless of what’s just been taken out. (more…)

Last Weekend of April and May Day 2017 Part 2: The Zoo, Earth Day Fair and Parc del Garraf

Part of of the last weekend of April and May Day can be found here.

I waited until the rain had stopped Sunday morning before running. I don’t mind running in the rain, however the rain was meant to stop half way through my run and as it was warmish I didn’t want deal with running tying jackets around my waist. I took advantage of waiting to get some overdue tidying done. That was until we went to Ikea this week to replace some shelving units, pulled everything out that I’ve still to go through along with rearranging furniture. The changes are better, so much space opened up!

Parc del Garraf

Run done in perfect running weather and hardly anyone out (even better!) (more…)

Last Weekend of April and May Day 2017 Part 1: Cala de Sant Francesc And The Great Wall Of Girona

Happy May!

This weekend made me realise just how much I love/need the sea, colour and nature. I might live in a city, however I’m lucky enough to live in a more open part of it, see the sea, greenery and of course I’m a 25 minutes fast cycle (21 min sprint) to the zoo, my own tropical garden during late summer afternoons when everybody’s at the beach. My Mum always says you can take the girl out the country but you can’t take the country out the girl.

I hope you had a great long weekend! Aside from realising I need colour (more…)
