Capturing our moments {August & September}

I’ve decided to start doing these roundup posts every other month now. Time seems to go so fast and I struggle to fit in writing them in once a month. The past couple of month’s have been pretty full on, so this post could take a while! I promise not…

A mini uni reunion

At the weekend, I travelled up to Liverpool for a little reunion with the girls I used to live with at uni. I can’t quite believe that this time 15 years I was starting uni! I went to Edge Hill University, which is close to Liverpool. During my first year…

Losing my way and feeling meh

Since returning from our summer holiday I seem to have lost my way a little. I’ve been eating far too much rubbish, haven’t been running as much and as a result I’ve been grumpy, full of spots and just generally a bit low. I always tend to suffer pretty bad…
