Muscle Ups, Cycling and Hippos

I can’t believe July will be August in a little under 2 weeks. This year’s going way too quickly and I’m not able to catch up (or maybe I’m too lazy too). Summer was late arriving here and like me trying to catch up. Last week the temps dipped, the 6pm clouds came blocking the sun and the wind picked up and hasn’t left. Weather apps predict the temps to rise this week and stay. I’m hoping as Summer was so late, it stays for an Indian Summer. I got my fingers crossed.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope the weekend’s going great for you! Yesterday was a one off Festivo only for Catalunya, making it a puente or long weekend. Not that I have much planned. I’m hoping to make more progress with my KonMari Method tidying/sorting out. I’ve been maintaining the areas already sorted, but I haven’t done any further tidying recently. Areas still to be done are silently nagging me. Well, that’s the plan!

Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have caught my eye this week or have made me smile.

Tone It Up Seascape CaprisTone It Up Seascape Carpi

I won’t lie, I get caught up in the Tone It Hype. Sometimes it’s too much, but it’s feel good hype, so that’s my excuse. They released earlier this month mesh Limitless Leggings. I’m in need of some new workout leggings so I added them to the basket and these capris. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much, but the reviews of the carpris were good, so I’d thought I’d take the chance. They past the essential squat test, didn’t budge workout and I forgot I had them on! Bottom line, I like them!

Paris’s futuristic housing projects build in the 60’s. To me they’re challenging Star Wars (or Star Wars challenging them).
