• Jannuary to March Book Reads

    Books I Read in January to March

    One of my goals this year is to read one book a month. I’m happy to say that so far, I’m on track. The three books I’ve read so far this year are a mix between science fiction, biography and fiction based on a true story. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading all of them so thought I’d share in case you’d be interested in giving them a read yourself. Here are my January to March book reads. The Tattooist of Auschwitz – Heather Morris Last year I saw so many people who I follow on social media shout about this book. I’m a sucker for marketing so this book had me…

    Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

    Mother’s Day is only one week away. How will you be celebrating? My mum (as you probably know) is Swedish so she’ll have to wait till the end of May before I celebrate her. It’s interesting that Mother’s Day doesn’t fall on the same day worldwide. The reason why it falls on the last Sunday in May in Sweden is because of the selection of flowers. Around that time of year, many different flowers are available. I guess that’s why it’s in March in England? Flowers are definitely the most common gift to give on Mother’s Day, I reckon anyways. I’ve put together a short list of luxury Mother’s Day…

    Love Lagree, a New Fitness Gym in Leeds

    Leeds is starting to become a bit of a fitness mecca with new gyms and fitness classes being introduced. As a fitness enthusiast I don’t mind one bit. The latest and hottest trend coming from across the pond, also in London, is Lagree. Lagree is a high intensity, low impact training method which many celebrities say has transformed their bodies. So if you’re not into classes filled with jumping exercises and prefer working with your own body over heavy weights, this is the perfect training method for you. I love trying new things so when owners and instructors Lorraine Jenkins and Craig Noble invited me down to their Love Lagree* studio…

  • Strike a Bowling Pose

    Strike a Bowling Pose at Tenpin in Leeds

    “Let’s bowl, let’s bowl, let’s rock n’ roll. Hey, come on, let’s get the show on the road.” These are the first lines of ‘Score Tonight’ from Grease 2 (the best of the two films I should add) when they’re out bowling. I always get this song stuck in my head when bowling is mentioned. When I go bowling myself, I wish everyone would start dancing like they do in the film but it never happens. Alas, a fun pose for the camera will do. I’ve always loved bowling. Perhaps because my dad competed in his younger days and showed me some techniques. Only how to walk and where to aim…

    Things I’d Like to Achieve in 2019

    I’m no different to any other blogger out there, of course I have a blog post listing things I’d like to achieve in 2019. I like to set goals because if I don’t, I get lost and perhaps won’t get around to completing anything. I love writing lists, being able to tick things off once done. There’e something so satisfactory seeing a tick next to big achievements like getting my UK citizenship last year or small tasks like washing the towels. For this year, I don’t want to set too many goals and run the risk of not being able to do all of them. My 2019 goals list is…
