Weekly Love #90

October 1, 2018

Happy Monday and happy October to you; welcome back to a new Weekly Love post. I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend and are ready for this very autumnal week ahead. This week was a little bit hard to get into after our holiday the week before, and the Croatia-blues really kicked in after a very stressful few days, but the autumn sunshine has definitely put a smile on my face.

Here is everything I was loving last week.


This week, I took the plunge and re-joined the gym after a few months of not going. I usually work out at home or go for a run, but with working from home now, I felt as though it would be good for me to get out of the house to exercise and do some classes – so far, so good!


On Wednesday, I was down in London for some filming with work, which was so much fun. We had a new member start as well and it was great to have a full team lunch and see everyone again. The only not-so-fun part was that I was stranded at Euston for a couple of hours due to a signal failure – all peaks and troughs hey!

Friend Catch Up

I had my friend Jacinta round on Thursday afternoon for a catch-up and to discuss something exciting that we have planned for the next few months. I always love catching up with her as we have been friends for years, and have really similar interests when it comes to the online world and she’s a real inspiration.


Now, I’m not the most sporty person, and I hadn’t even played tennis since school, but my friend Phil and I had been saying all summer that we should have a game as there are some courts opposite our house. We went for a game on Friday evening (wild child!) and it was so much fun and I regret not going whilst it was warmer.


On Saturday morning, I had a gloss treatment put on my hair at Reilly Denholm in Leigh, which I visited back in July. It feels a lot healthier and it’s a bit more of a darker brown which is perfect for autumn and winter.

Northern Blog Awards

I’ve been a member of We Blog North since the beginning but unfortunately didn’t get to go to the Northern Blog Awards last year as I was at a wedding so I’ve been looking forward to them since the start of the year. The night was incredible and I got to meet so many new people and catch up with so many of my favourite Northern bloggers – I already can’t wait until 2019!

Sofa Sunday

I actually wasn’t feeling too bad on Sunday, considering I drank my fair share of wine and prosecco at the awards but decided to make no plans so we could have a duvet day, watching films and chilling on the sofa all day. We had a delicious Hello Fresh pasta for tea as well with walnuts and tomatoes.


This week I finally got round to doing my newsletter again for October. I took a couple of months off from the last one as it was a pretty hectic summerΒ and I didn’t want to send something out that I wasn’t 100% happy with. If you want to sign up, the link is here and I’d love you so super duper much if you did!

What were you loving last week?

    Sundays on the sofa are the best – and it sounded like you needed it after such a busy week! I’ll definitely have to look into the Northern Blog Awards – it would be great to meet some more local bloggers x
