Simple Summer Pieces

21 June 2017
In under two weeks I'll be sunning myself in Lanzarote. I'm so excited! 

I haven't had a 'relax by the pool in the sun' type holiday since 2008 (yes, 2008) so it feels very much needed right now, particularly after a busy couple of months at work. 

Me and my lovely mom are heading to a hotel in the island's Puerto Calero and situated near to a beautiful marina. I've never been to Lanzarote before and so I'm looking forward to seeing what it has to offer. While we plan to spend 90% of our time doing nothing, we do want to go for a little explore of the island while we have the chance. 

Having not been on a beach/pool holiday for so long my wardrobe was somewhat lacking in my summer clothes and so I went on the hunt for some comfy and affordable pieces.

Let's Try My Protein

18 June 2017
A couple of years back whilst going to the gym very regularly, I bought myself some of the Protein World Slender Blend to help my muscles recover after exercising. As well as post exercising, I got really into having a vanilla shake with some oats and banana for breakfast. I swear I’ve never had more energy than I did back then. I found that the shakes really helped to keep me feeling full and satisfied, and at that time I felt really fit and healthy. I was happy with my body and very rarely felt lethargic and unmotivated. I’m not sure why I got out of that routine or habit, but my body has definitely altered a lot again since that time and I really want to get back to where I was.

Exploring Cornwall

14 June 2017
I've been to Cornwall more times than I can count. Every year since I was about eleven, we've made the journey south to see quaint towns and stunning beaches. So writing a post named 'exploring Cornwall' seems somewhat strange when I feel I know it so well. 

But exploring is exactly what we did back in May.

I'm a creature of habit in pretty much every area of my life and so sometimes, breaking those habits can be difficult. Every time we've visited this beautiful part of the UK, we've virtually stuck to the same areas. Every. Single. Time.

But not this time! We went down and stayed with a family friend who lives in a little village just outside of Truro. It was great, because it meant we got taken to towns and spots we'd never visited before, and some we'd never even heard of.

Blogging is Hard

11 June 2017
Oh's been a while.

I'm not really sure where 2017 has gone. I mean, it's June already yet it only seems two minutes ago that I popped up my last posts about Christmas and New Year. Right now, that famous Ferris Bueller quote seems pretty damn apt.

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while you might miss it."

Blogging is hard. 

I love writing, it's one of my favourite things to do; however when your job involves a hell of a lot of writing already, it's difficult to come home and feel inspired to write even more. So I kind of dropped off the blogosphere. Fell out of love with Things Tanith Did and the social media platforms that once made up a huge part of my life. 

But I want to come back. I get home from work some nights, settle down with a cup of tea and flick through some of my favourite blogs and think YES. This is what I want to do. I want to write and create content to be proud of. Capture beautiful moments, pretty photographs and rekindle that love for creativity I once had.

I think after three intense years at university (studying Media and Communications if you didn't already know) followed by a full time job that takes up a lot of my creative thought, the inspiration I once had gradually dwindled away.

But I want to get it back! I think to do that I just need to strike when the inspiration comes, not force something that isn't there. I'm not committing to a 'schedule'. I'm not committing to a 'theme'. I'm not committing to specific content. I'm committing to creativity and to respark that passion I once had.

So, hopefully this isn't goodbye for too long. It's the start of something new.

A(nother) LUSH Overload

11 January 2017
Oh look.... I've been to Lush again! Well there's a surprise (not)!

I mean, I had many valid reasons for shopping at Lush this time - not that you really ever need a reason to treat yourself to glorious bath bombs - firstly I've just had my bathroom refurbished (check out the post here) so I can now have a bath without feel miserable as I did in my old grotty bathroom, secondly there were some epic reductions after Christmas and thirdly I was actually very lucky to be given some products as Christmas presents (winning all round)!

If you want to see what I've got in my stash (and I now really do have quite a stash), then keep on reading!
