It’s been a little while since I wrote a blog post discussing my views on social media- a topic that you all know I love to analyse. Over the past week, there have been several conversations raised amongst my friends and colleagues around Instagrammers editing their pictures and it got me thinking…
With the London Marathon in full steam last weekend, it got a fair few of us thinking that we might just want to head out for a run, make running a more regular part of our routines or even… run a marathon. Well, whatever impact the marathon had on you, here are my top tips on how to get into running when you’re not already a runner!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Never did I think that I would actually run a half marathon. Growing up as a sprinter and jumper, long distance running was never on my to-do list. In fact, it wasn’t until I was at university that I ran the furthest that I’d ever run- 5km! Looking back now, oh how far I’ve come.
I honestly cannot remember the last day I went without taking a photograph. Whether it’s of my outfit, face (sorry), food, a cute view or even a screenshot- I’m pretty sure this counts as a photo, no?- I’m always snapping away. Partly because it’s my job to do so, but also because I simply just love it. I have over 13,000 images stored on my phone and there would probably be more if it wasn’t for my storage allowance.
It’s kind of great that we’re able to document every moment. It allows us to reminisce on nearly every single day of our lives… wow. I love how technology enables us to do this however, I can’t help but feel like there’s nothing better than looking through a good old photo album or having pictures displayed around the home. Wouldn’t it be great if we could print the best of these memories straight from our phone into actual photographs at the click of a button? Well now you can, anytime, anywhere and all for free.
So the weather here in the UK has been miserable for the last few weeks, leaving everybody feeling ready to book their 2018 getaway(/s). I love to travel, always choosing to visit as many hot destinations as my bank account allows, so you would think by now that I would have nailed packing light… Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. I’m a, ‘better too much than too little’ kind of gal. However, I do have a list of key items that I always pack no matter what. Take a look below at what items travel with me wherever I go:
This month I ran my first ever half marathon- The Vitality Big Half. Here’s how I got on…
