Reliving the past: Geocaching!

As I mentioned in my “The beauty of Tennessee” post the other day I wrote about this activity called “geocaching” that i did with my family when I was a little younger and it bought back so many memories I was so eager to go out and try it again! So that’s exactly what I did when I realised that I could!

The beauty of Tennessee

I thought I’d start this gloomy Monday morning off with a life experience post for all you lovely readers. A few years ago myself and my family spend a few days in the Great Smokey Mountain area of Tennessee, located near Gatlinburg before traveling down by car through Georgia down to Florida to spend the rest of the holiday with my grandparents on the West coast. We stayed in a small town which was very local called Pigeon Forge surrounded by mountains, forests, open roads and lots and lots of nature! Even though the state is completely land locked, I still managed to have a lot of fun there even without a beach to go and chill on!!

Birthday celebrations!!

The 19th April 2016 usually is a happy day however this year I had very mixed feelings about turning 20!! 20!!! Your 20s are the years where life usually ‘begins’ and I do not feel like I am prepared for that quite yet, I still enjoy Capri Suns, Ravioli in a tin, being tickled and still cannot write neatly so it still baffles me that I have actually entered my teens let alone left them!! With the sadness of turning an actual adult aside I actually had a very enjoyable set of birthday celebrations over a few of days!

Easter weekend!!

Arriving home in Peterborough from Leeds on the Wednesday before Easter gave me plenty of time to get prepared for the celebrations which went on that weekend so i’ll be taking you through what I did to celebrate this great time of year! I love Easter as I love the treats and colours which are associated with this festive period. It is a completly different flavour palette and colour scheme to Christmas and Valentine’s day which have been the most recent past festive times.

Current workout routine!

My current workout is nothing too special, but it works for me to get me active every morning and at nights, I have been very good so far and give myself a gold star each day I do both of my workouts! Which sounds pathetic, but it really works! At the end of the month, as a treat and encouragement, I add up all the stars, convert it to pounds Β£ and then treat myself to the money equivalent! This could be a new pair of shoes, a dress or a meal out! This way I stay motivated to do the workouts twice a day and not be naughty and skip days.

I’m not working out to lose weight or anything like that; I am happy with my body and I am not trying to change it, I am doing it just to improve my strength and release some stress so I am not on a diet I just eat as I usually do which is still healthy, but as most of us, I do love my sweet treats! I just do my workouts in the space that I have free in my bedroom, or wherever I am at the time. I do not use the gym as I feel more motivated to work out at home and with the little equipment I have to hand I have seen more difference in myself than when I used to work out at the gym!

Exploring Iceland

Very few places come close to the natural beauty that is Iceland. I have been lucky enough to experience this facinating country first hand and see all that it has to offer, experiences such as walking on a glacier, exploring black sand beaches and swimming in the blue lagoon! All of the activities which i carried out in my time in Iceland I will always remember because they are all sites which I had never experienced before and so different to the sites that you see around where I’m from! All of the natural land formations in this treasured country are anough to take your breath away, you never get tired of looking at the scenes this beautiful place has to offer!

Weekend in Amsterdam

Thought i’d spice up the blog a little with a post which isn’t a “10 things“, who would’ve thought it! So waaaay back in September when I had just got back from America me and Don took a trip to Amsterdam! We decided back in June time that we where going to take a trip as we had had a lot of time apart with him being back in the US for summer, then me working everyday which meant that when he was back in the UK we couldn’t see eachother much. So we decided on Amsterdam because it is somewhere where I had never been before and was really keen to go and visit, however Don had spend a short time there last March so it wasnt completly alien to him! I’ve decided to share what we got up to on that weekend and also share a few pictures which I took on my travels.. The pictures I took do not even do this city justice, it’s something that you have to experience first hand!IMG_4788
