Monday’s are always a bit rough, but mine was made better today when I came home to find that my September Popsugar Must-Have Box had arrived! I have always had a bit of a thing for subscription boxes – its basically like sending yourself a gift every month (or every season, depending on the box!) … Continue reading Review: POPSUGAR Must-Have Box
Running is one of those things you either love, or you hate. Or maybe you even love it and hate it at the same time (totally me). I used to absolutely hate running, until I decided to challenge myself by training for a half marathon. Somewhere during the 10 weeks it took me to prepare, … Continue reading 3 Mistakes New Runners Make
Well, guys, I think it’s safe to say that I am way overdue for an update on my progress on the 52 book challenge! If I recall correctly, my last update was in March (yikes!) so I’ve got a lot of ground to cover… 5 months and over twenty books! Normally I like to talk a … Continue reading A long overdue update | 52 Book Challenge

Sadly, even with … Continue reading February Reads | 52 Book Challenge

I just never understood why people liked it – to me, running for longer than a mile or two just seemed boring to … Continue reading My First Half Marathon & What It Taught Me
Today is January 31st, which means its time for my January reading wrap up! As you may know, I am challenging myself to read 52 books in the year of 2016, and in January I completed eight books! EIGHT! Anyway, here are the books I read this month: The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up … Continue reading January Reads | 52 Book Challenge
