Happy Friday! What escapades have you all been up to? Here's a little update of my life:
Back in late May, I went to Bournemouth 7s festival. It's a sport and music festival that sees thousands of people get together to play rugby, netball, hockey and dodgeball in teams of 7, and obviously incorporates some alcoholic beverages and goes on late into the night with music and DJs. I only went to one day, but it was really brilliant. The guys didn't win the rugby but they had a rather good, albeit hungover from the night before go!
I've been spending a lot of time with friends, old and new. One thing about being an independent person is that I have to take it upon myself to meet new people. I met Megan (above) at Bournemouth 7s as she's one of the girlfriends of the guys, and she's pretty much my new best friend now. She's the same height, born one day apart and we just had such a similar personality. I also started at my new book club with Rosie that she had invited me too, so met a group of new girls there who were also lovely. I'm excited to start reading our book for this Summer which is 'The Night Circus' by Erin Morgenstern. I'm going to start it on the plane to Orlando so I can really get stuck in!
I injured myself over a week ago in a bootcamp class. I honestly never injure myself, so I was absolutely gutted as my gym manager told me I had to rest for a week. I find it so difficult to rest - I need to be out keeping active, whether it's at the gym, or a quick run, cycling along the seafront or walking Max, so to be banned from doing anything was pretty awful. However, I'm back at it and went straight into boxing and bootcamp again. In my workout on Wednesday, I did what felt like 20,000 kettlebell swings and my body was crying afterwards. I keep getting asked about my fitness routine and the blog post is on it's way so stay tuned!
There have been some rather beautiful sunsets recently. This is a sunset from Hengistbury Head and it's just divine. I love walking Max at dusk (much to my dad's disgust..keep safe and all that!) but the sunsets are just too good to miss. I could spend so much of my time at the beach, and watching the sun go down is a great time to think and can bring a whole lot of clarity, especially when you have lots on your mind.
I also have a giveaway for you! The Power of Poison exhibition based in Whitechapel, London are letting me giveaway two tickets to their exhibition for any day before it ends in September. It's a creepy but educational tour about the history of poisons, hosted by a variety of actors. There are also interactive sections to the tour where you can get involved with certain things. I will be going to see this exhibition once I get back from Orlando and am really excited because I love science and learning about things like this.
To enter, just use the widget below - the giveaway ends in a week and I will announce the winner via Twitter, and you will be emailed by a member of the Power of Poison UK team to sort your tickets. Good luck!
