Tough Mudder!

A bit of a different post today.  Last Saturday I did Tough Mudder at Glanusk Estate in beautiful Wales. It was a 11.5 mile multi-terrain obstacle course and like the name of the race suggests, it was tough! I have the cuts, bruises and damaged foot bones to prove it.

They weren't any kind of obstacles, on no.  No simple climbing nets for me.  Think plunging under ice water, crawling through rock laden muddy tunnels, lots of electric shocks and wading through a river. These were just a few of the obstacles I had to complete, but I can happily say that I DID complete it.

The Malvern Spa, Worcester -Review

A short while back, my sisters and I paid a visit to The Malvern Spa, located in the beautiful Malvern hills of Worcestershire (The Queen drinks the water from these hills).  Our spa day package included full use of the spa facilities, a light lunch and a treatment each.

I'm off!

Hello everyone. I am off on holiday to Combe Martin in Devon tomorrow. I've been looking forward to it for months and months. Yaaay!

About 2 months ago I used Superdrug Crème Sensations Light Brown hair dye and turned my lovely golden locks into plan, boring brunette. It was meant to last up to 28 washes and I have no idea how many times I've washed my hair, but I'm bored and have ran out of patience to returning to my natural ginger self. This calls for drastic measures. Tomorrow morning I shall be using Lush's Caca Rouge henna. I've used it before to enhance my natural colour with some amazing results. I will be sure to take photos and write up a full review post-Devon. I NEED to be ginger again. It's simply the only way to live.

Have you ever just been so bored of your dyed hair that you've had to dye it back? What do you think of henna? I love it.

Rose Jam Shower Gel, Lush - Review

Last Monday I posted my wishlist (check it out here.)  Swiftly after posting my list I went onto the Lush website and snapped up a 500g bottle of limited edition Rose Jam shower gel.  You probably know that I am a crazy loony fan of Lush so whilst I was at it, I popped a  Ne Worry Pas bath bomb and a small bottle of Sonic Death Monkey shower gel into my online basket.  The nice packing lady also added samples of Vanilla Dee-Light body lotion, Turkish Delight and Dreamwash shower smoothies and a little slice of The Godmother soap.

Hello September


I'm really looking forward to this month. To me it marks the end of summer and the beginning of my favourite season, autumn. It's going to be quite a busy month for me too as I've also got a holiday in North Devon in just under 2 weeks which I've been excited about for months. Then at the end of the month I've got Tough Mudder where I'll see if the past few months of training has paid off. So excited! Bring on September!

What are your plans for this month?  Are you sad to see summer end?
