Life Lately #104

Hello lovelies! How are you all?

Being typically British, I couldn't start this post without mentioning the weather.. I'm currently sat here on Bank Holiday Monday (today) writing this & looking out the window at all the rain. How frustrating, just when you think Summer has arrived (we had a beautifully sunny day yesterday) the rain returns. Only good thing is it means cosy days snuggled up inside with your duvet & a movie & you get to see epic sunsets like this!

You might have seen this mug in a previous post, as it featured in my Monthly Favourites. I actually can't wait for the end of this week as I'm off to Gloucester to see James. We're currently doing a 3 week gap so I can't wait to see him!

Last Friday we started off the weekend with Elisa's hen do! This was part 1, a meal at Smith & Western, then we went on to our local cocktail bar for drinks & finally to a small club / bar. We had such a good night!

Saturday afternoon was the hen part 2. We started off pottery painting, which makes you realise how un-artistic you really are, then we went onto afternoon tea. The place we went was called Pretty Things, it the most stunning place with a very unique interior. We had a quiz & then headed to Cathy's for a girl's night in the evening.

Ok, so last Thursday morning, myself & my friend Ricka went for an induction at our local gym. I've never been to the gym before. I kid you not. This was a whole new experience for me & actually, I rather enjoyed it. We had a go on all the machines after being shown how to use them & we're currently on a 7 day free trial, so we get to use the gym as much as we like until this coming Thursday. I found out my friend Boop also has a membership at the same gym, so we were planning to go together yesterday, but she was busy, which meant.. I had to go on my own. The thought of this terrified me (as I'm sure people wo know me would probably guess) but despite that, I drove to the car park, sat in the car for 10 minutes & eventually went in. I only stayed for 20 minutes & did some work on the treadmill & on the leg machines, but I felt so pleased with myself when I came out! I seriously couldn't believe I'd done it! Hopefully I'm going again (on my own) tomorrow morning.. so we'll see how that goes.. wish me luck!

& finally after my massive gym achievement yesterday, I headed straight out the door again with the dogs for a walk. It was the most beautiful day & after 10 minutes of walking with my headphones in, I took them out & just listened to the birds chatting, the wind in the trees & felt the sunshine on my face. It was so nice to be outside, away from technology & the distractions of every day life. I need more days like that.

How was April for you lovelies?
Hope you're enjoying the Bank Holiday Weekend!


  1. I hope you enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend to the fullest my babe! I really can't believe this damn weather; yesterday I sat out in the garden sunbathing and it was the hottest it's felt all year, whilst today is dreary AF! Hopefully summer will blast down as soon as possible and stay for the long haul so we can enjoy the sunshine to our heart's content ;) So proud of you for venturing to the gym on your own, it's something I've always felt intimidated by so have mostly avoided. It takes such courage and you're amazing for going for it. GO GIRL! <3

    1. Awwh babe you always make me smile with your lovely comments, thankyou so much. If I can go to the gym on my own, you definitely can! x

  2. We had a super sunny afternoon today which was very quickly followed by a rainstorm. Yay England - haha! Great pictures as always. Well done for going to the gym alone, it's always pretty nerve racking, isn't it? x
