Neon for Nights.

Neon Free-Runs & Sweaty Betty Water Bottle

It’s winter, it’s dark. Motivation to go the gym is waning, running is cold, dark and routes are limited. The solution? Add in some neon clothing. From neon free-runs, to water bottles, and a glow-in-the-dark jacket.

Neon Free-Runs and Sweaty Betty Water Bottle

Having never run through winter before, I was admittedly unprepared for the concept of a night run. After a rather grumpy cyclist pointed out I wasn’t visible enough, I bought this jacket from the Nike Outlet. The photo below was taken with flash and as you can see, it’s pretty bright!

The best tricks I’ve found in the last few weeks, pack your gym kit the night before, just like you did for PE. Spend fifteen minutes on a Sunday night planning your classes/sessions/runs/workouts, taking into account the weather for outdoor workouts, add them into your phone and you are definitely more likely to do it.

Still need some motivaiton?

Currently Reading : The Quality of Silence 

The Quality of Silence


This book is eerie, particularly when reading it during gale force winds tucked up in bed, given the book’s main plot is around a storm, all be it a snow storm. I can fully imagine being in that Alaskan storm, being forced to drive an 18-wheeler and having no idea how to attach snow chains. This was definitely a thriller to remember and I loved the main character Ruby.

BBC Good Food Show 2015

Another year and another BBC Good Food Show. Luckily this year I could enjoy it a bit more as I hadn’t just moved into my flat. The highlight and main event for me, was unashamedly waiting in a queue to get Mary Berry to sign a book. For an 80 year old, she really is remarkable. The age range in the queue was from 6 to 60+, which truely is incredible.

My brother went to the cocktail masterclass and was suitably impressed. Turns out whisky sours is an excellent cocktail!


Currently Listening to : George Ezra

Wanted on Voyage

Christmas has well and truly landed in the UK, some people can’t stand it but I love it. The sparkly lights, switch to thicker coats and of course all the TV adverts. Burberry were one of the first out and as always, it’s incredible. A Burberry coat or scarf will forever be on my one day wish list. How does this relate to George Ezra?

Well, George Ezra is one of the celebrities seen bouncing in the film, along with James Bay. Having not listened to the album in over a year, it has been on repeat since Tuesday!

John Lewis are posting there advert on Twitter today, so will no doubt be listening to that song as well from the end of today.

Chasing the colours of the wind

Pocahontas reference for anybody wondering. Potentially not the same pinks and magical colours seen in the film, but the changing of the leaves this year has been stunning. 

It may be red cup season now but I’m going to enjoy the last week or so of all the oranges. The photos were all taken in Edinburgh walking to and up Arthur’s seat.  


You can’t beat a crisp autumn day, fresh air and a long walk. 

The sunlight filtering through the trees was gorgeous.
