If you love fashion and styling, Villoid is your man/woman/whoever else. Villoid was created by Alexa Chung which just makes me love it even more. I discovered this app a year or so ago and it's the bees knees for putting together outfits and for discovering new brands and styles. I love putting together items which I am planning on purchasing, items which I will probably never be able to purchase (yes I am looking at you embroidered bags), and seeing what other people have created on the app.

A severe lack of photos from my trip to London over the weekend - I was having the best time with my best friend that I didn't even think about taking any. The best breakfast at Bill's, South Kensington, being tourists at Buckingham Palace, matching heels, being ultimate tube warriors, shopping for days and putting the world to rights. Thank you pal, forever and always.
I am certainly a creature of habit when it comes to giving up fitness-wise. This must be my millionth time attempting what many may call a 'fitness journey', but maybe documenting it on my blog will give me a smidgen of motivation. So here goes....
Be able to run 10k. I'm not fab at running but I am getting there at snail pace. I used to run frequently over the summer in 2015 and used an app called 5k runner, which actually helped my fitness improve so much. Me and some friends did a Pretty Muddy Race for Life event which was 5k and smashed it. It's not a race by any means and we know it wasn't the point of it, but we're go hard or go home gals so we really tried our best. We proved to ourselves we could do it.
Following on from that summer, I had a bit of a fitness blunder and more or less stopped altogether due to a number of factors, but excuses aside, here I am again, ready to tackle 5K runner and beyond.
Try something new. I tried Pilates once a few years ago and despite enjoying it I never went back. I'd really like to find something that thrills me and something I can't wait to do every week. I think I will add boxing to my list for now, I am yet to research my options.
Cycle more. I live in a part of England that is perfect for cycling, which is the Lake District. So I really have no excuse but to get my padded shorts on and spin till my heart is content. I have a bit of a fear of doing any form of exercise outside unless it's the unearthly hours of the morning when no one can see me, so that's another bridge I have to cross. I think I'd get so much more out of cycling if I wasn't so afraid of 'being seen', which is something I'm sure others can relate to. There's not an awful lot of time between the earliest hour I am willing to wake up or the time people start to get out and about so it definitely cuts my rides short.
Be able to plank for 2 minutes.
Cook more. I definitely mean from scratch and not throwing things in the microwave (except to make scrambled eggs - who's with me?) I'm definitely what you would call an amateur in the cooking realm so I would really love to spend more time learning about food and nutrition and following recipes.
