And so begins my two months of having no free time, but spending all of my time doing wonderful and exciting things!
Last weekend I spent a lot of time with some of my most wonderful friends. Sarah, my newly engaged friend, was turning 30 on Tuesday and she held a fabulous party on the Saturday. We gathered on the edge of a cricket ground and picnic’d for a few hours to start the celebrations. Good food, chats and company were experienced as we kept out of the heat of the sun in the shade. I’m very lucky to have such a great bunch of friends and the time flew by, before we headed into the pavilion and made ourselves comfortable on the lawn outside it.
The barbecue fired up, we watched Sarah open her presents and then dug into another feast. We talked late into the evening and it was quite dark before we left! But not before we got to have a slice of the wonderful cake made by the birthday girl herself!
An amazing cake, and it tasted amazing too! It was a really great day and we so enjoyed celebrating Sarah’s birthday all together.
In other news I finally got around to highlighting my hair. It was a bit of a mission….. I used L’Oreal Glam Highlights
It comes with an ‘easy’ application brush. It is fairly easy and quick but not on your own. I couldn’t get an even pressure applying it myself and after letting it develop, washing it out, conditioning and drying it was really patchy and I wasn’t happy. So I called on Gary and he fixed it for me! I’m really pleased with the result. It’s quite subtle at the moment, but I intend to build up the intensity over the next few months with further applications and in the end will have an array of shades running through my hair! Here’s the result:
I’ve also been to the gym a few times this week, and yesterday tried out my first Body Attack class, aware that it was cardio interval workouts and HIIT. The instructor talked to us before the class and told us what to expect. She was very clear about what to do and what not to do if you started to flag a bit, and was very reactive to any struggles all the way through. I really enjoyed it, but it was truly knackering. We intend to go again next week, but it’ll be a different instructor since this week’s was covering for the normal one, so I hope next week’s is as good! It’s really hard but something I’d like to get good at. I’m obviously a glutton for pain….. eek!
And lastly, I received something very exciting in the post yesterday. It’s something I’ve been waiting for for a while and is extra specially wonderful. Here’s a sneak peak, but there’ll be more about it soon….
