14 Things I’m grateful for.

So 2016 was the year the UK voted to leave the EU and Donald Trump became the president of America. It was up and down to say the least. If nothing else, I’ve realised that I am so guilty of moaning about such pointless things.

My battle with My Fitness Pal.

I want to start by saying that this is not a slating of ‘My Fitness Pal’.

My Sunday night routine.

Most people who work a 9-5 will experience, or have experienced the Sunday night blues. You know, when it hits around 6pm on a Sunday and you feel Monday creeping up to you like the little shit it is.
