May 2016 Must-Haves // Fashion, Beauty, Home

Finally my winter coat is back in the wardrobe and my pastel tones, and light summer jackets are officially out! Hurrah! So we are nearly into June which is a ridiculously scary thought don't you think?! Even scarier is that it'll then only be a month until I celebrate my 1st year wedding anniversary. How quick has that zipped round? I mean my garden looks like a jungle of green, (or something out of Jurassic Park) and I swear birds have decided to nest in my roof! If that doesn't mean summer is here then I don't know what! 

Regardless of all that we're in May and weather is beginning to behave itself, so bye bye winter shades, hello summer beauty. Let's see what we have in store and if I can give you some May bank holiday inspiration...

Need some inspiration? Join the SlimFast Lunch Club! #SlimFastLunchClub

The other week I played host to the first Slimfast Lunch club on Twitter. I have previously tried SlimFast, this was just before my hen do to give my lazy butt a kick into gear. I love my food and even though I train a lot I'd got myself in a pickle with calories, basically being honest I'd eat far more than I should, and would justify it by the fact I'd done high intensity training. 

I wanted to feel good for my wedding so I needed to shift a few pounds - nothing major even just a couple would of been great. The general rule of thumb is with weight loss is around 75% diet and 25% fitness, so I'd got the fitness side of things down but a combo of over sized portions and slabs of cake were totally contradicting all my hard work.

Getting Active with Simplyhealth at Go Ape Woburn Park

Earlier this month I was asked by Simplyhealth to take part in a fitness challenge. They wanted to know that by me doing some sort of 'fun' activity what sort of calories could I burn, and how many steps would I perhaps end up doing? I could chose any kind of local activity to do such as going to laser quest, or trying out an escape room, but having taken part in Go Ape at Sherwood Pines years ago, I decided I wanted to try it out again ...but at Woburn Safari Park.

The Revenge of The Sheep Escape Game at ClueQuest... and Giveaway! #clueQuest

The idea of being trapped in a room with a limited time to get out absolutely frightens me, team that with mental challenges and not only have you got fear... but you have a soar of my anxiety! So why the devil did I agree to try out London's hottest escape game clueQuest?! Because I'm a sucker for a challenge and figured I'd be getting over two of my fears. 

I didn't actually know that escape room style games existed in the UK; the first time I'd seen or heard of one was during an episode of The Big Bang Theory. The cast have to solve puzzles with a zombie in the room to get out. This was going to be similar but minus the zombie! There are some gruesome ones around with a horror theme to them, but that would actually be my idea of a bad way to spend 60 minutes!  This was a challenge with a different theme of which we were about to discover...

Tropical Print Culotte Jumpsuit and Fringing Vibes // Style

The sun came out the last weekend and I honestly couldn't get enough. I was going through my old clothes and sorting out what to eBay, what to charity shop and what to bin. Turns out I didn't have a lot of summer stuff so on a cheeky trip into town post Body Attack class I picked up this super cute jumpsuit from New Look.
