July Favourites.

The sky is grey, it's raining and I'm craving ALL the tea.... must be August.

So now we are on to  day 2 of August (how the hell did that happen?!) I thought it was a good time to share the things I have loved in the month of July.

 1. Maple Sunrise cereal.

This cereal is insanely tasty! Now I myself am not gluten free but I couldn't find anything else similar in the general cereal aisle so picked this one up. Anyone that is gluten free will know that if a product has those two words on the packaging the price is increased double.... ugh.
So compared to others this might be a little more pricey but what I did was buy some cheaper own brand cereal and I mix the two together.. maybe two thirds maple sunrise....

But I urge anyone to try this if you like sweet, crunchy breakfasts.

2. Pole Fitness

Pole is something I did a few years ago for a couple of months but for multiple reasons I stopped before I got very far. Thankfully my wonderful friend decided to come back with me and it's been awesome!!!
Only minor injuries have occurred so far but increasingly complex moves are bound to result in more right??

If you live in the south of England and fancy giving it a go please contact Emma at Pole Performers because she is magnificent.

3. Faith in Nature deodorant.

I agree that recommending a deodorant might seem odd however this is a cruelty free, vegan, one ingredient deodorant that has no scent and ACTUALLY WORKS!!! So yeah thought I'd mention that in case anyone needs to find something like this.

4. City of Bones (Mortal Instruments series).

Once again I am very late to the party with this Cassandra Clare series but I got there eventually and I think that's the main thing to focus on here.
If like me you are yet to delve into this fantasy world then please do yourself a favour and read this! I'm one book in and already looking for the entire series for a reasonable price, because I know I'm going to love the whole thing.

I will also give Game of Thrones an honourable mention because come on, it's basically the best thing that's ever happened to the fantasy TV genre .... and Emilia Clarke is bae.

That's it, hopefully you have seen somethings you've been loving or perhaps even new things to try! July was pretty great.

I'm a Teacher Now (and other updates)

So the whole keeping up with this while being a trainee teacher did not happen.... it was hard man!

I have now completed the course and am a fully qualified science teacher with a job and everything! I honestly am as surprised as everyone else in my life seems to be that I actually did this and (shock, horror) enjoyed it!

So what now?

Well I'm currently on my summer holidays (hurrah!) which is why I have found the time to sit down and put my fingers back to the keys. I'll be starting my first teaching job in September which is both exciting and poop my pants terrifying. I know that at least for the next month I will definitely be able to keep updating this blog and fingers crossed be doing things that are worthy of sharing with you. This next year is going to be extremely hard work and although I would love to really get this blog off the ground I worry that spare time will be tricky to find. Having said that this could be the perfect excuse to unwind and relieve the inevitable stress that comes with teaching, I'm crossing every possible body part that I will find the time to write at least once a week. Send me your positive and motivational energy please.

What can you expect from me?

Honestly I have no idea! If you have read any of my past posts you will note that I've never had any resemblance of a theme which I think is probably why I've failed miserably to make this an actual blog with regular posts.
Over the past few weeks there have been some changes and I think this is probably what my blog is going to be all about.... life style posts and stuff that interests me. Sound okay?
I have begun my journey back into veganism after massively falling off the wagon.... multiple times. This time however I am so freaking motivated that it will stick... IT WILL.
I've started doing regular exercise... yeah me!
My plan is also to make this summer a spiritual one. I have been fascinated by wicca and nature religions for a long time and so will be delving deeper into that with this free time I seem to have found for myself.

It's been and hopefully will continue to be, a year of change and growth so that's what I want to focus on and share with you...... come join the adventure!
