Forgetting the norms and making it personal

Ever since I began this blog it has always had to be prim and proper. Each post needed to have a purpose along with a set of pictures that were blog worthy. Now I'm falling behind on creating content which I want to post and so with that goes my posting schedule. It really gets me down when I neglect my blog as I love the interaction a new post brings. I know this may sound silly but you feel a little forgotten about if you don't post for a while and the blogging community move on without you. Don't get me wrong, these thoughts don't overtake my life but they are niggling in the back of my mind. I like to think I've always got a few things on the horizon that I can blog about. 

So having said that I've decided I want to embrace my blog more about make it more about me. How big headed ey! I want to post more about what I've been up to without the glam pictures and the fancy reviews. No-one may want to read them but I'd like to just start letting you know what I'm up to, what happens in my life and what great things I've got coming up. 

I will of course still keep up my standard blog posts but I want to have the option of posting random personal content if I want. Let's start our first chat/catch up/life discussion...

This week has been a super busy one. If you didn't know I work in PR and Marketing for a ports and logistics company based in the North East. I've taken on more of the events within the business and there seems to be something happening every week at the moment. It is of course stressful, but that is the nature of events and that's what I asked to be more involved in. I'm hoping to just catch up with myself and get my lists in order so I can properly take the events and make them my own. I'll have all things done before I'm asked and just be on top. You watch this space, I'm going to make it happen.

Apart from work my weeknights are mainly chill. Wednesday nights I take part in Shred 7, a group fitness session put on by a local personal trainer, Troy Lake. It's super fun and I've been doing it since last February. If I'm honest, I like to keep going to the group as if I didn't I probably wouldn't do anything. It does inspire me to want to work out more and eat better. Since I started going, I feel so much better. It has educated me about fitness, giving me a great backlog of exercises I can do at home and because I'm constantly pushed I feel much fitter and stronger. This year I need to start doing more outside of my sessions so I can really see the difference! If you'd like to know more about this session and what we do let me know and I'll do a full post!

On to future plans. This week myself and Kirsty from Number Twenty Six booked a trip to Amsterdam. Taking advantage of P&O Ferries two for one offer until the end of March, we booked up to go with our other halves. We're only going for the one day, staying over on the ferry on the way there and the way back, but I know that we will have a laugh so I'm very excited!

That's all for this week! Hopefully I can keep these up and continue to write about what I've been up to. For me it's like a mini vlog, but in a blog form! Let me know what you think!

P.s I couldn't resist adding pictures!
