Life #5

lifestyle blog 5-tile

What a busy few weeks! I bet you are all sick of me saying that… I know I am. I have made a decision today that I may take a break from Monday’s Meals, Wednesday’s Workout and Fitness Friday posts and rather post material when I have it. When I first started the posts they were a was of helping me stay active on my blog however now I find it more restricting as feel I have to post stuff on those days and if I miss it I have to wait until the next week to post it. Don’t worry I will still be posting health and fitness blog posts, but they could now be on a Tuesday or Thursday… you will have to check in more often to see when I am posting!

Anyways onto my “Life #5” post.

Fitness Friday | How I prepare my meals

preparing meals for the week1
This week my diet has not been good.. at all! And I know exactly why… because I did not prepare my meals for the week. Instead I have skipped breakfast a couple of days, ate too many sandwiches for my lunches and made poor decisions for my dinner; as I result I feel pretty rubbish this week. It’s amazing that filling yourself with rubbish food actually makes you feel rubbish!
I have written a post previously about the importance of preparing your meals to aid in weight-loss and health gain, so I won’t lecture you as I already have. However this post’s purpose is to share with you how I prepare my meals. It’s kind of a step by step guide to show you how easy it is to find healthy recipes and use them in your everyday diet.

Fitness Friday | It takes 21 days to create a habit

21 days to create a habit 1

Yesterday was a big day for me; yes it was Halloween, but it was also the first time I ate chocolate in 30 days! I took a mini challenge at the beginning on October to give up chocolate for the month, my only day to eat chocolate in October was Halloween. So last night I bought my stash of chocolate with the intention of having a big night of chocolate indulgence. I eagerly opened the bar of Dairy Milk and took my first bite, and found not a feeling of overwhelming chocolate bliss, but a tasty yet underwhelming feeling.

Share the love| Meet my October Sponsors


What a strange month it has been. I have been busy with my job and life, however unlike usual, blogging was put on the back burner. I wasn’t really feeling inspired to blog and never like to force myself to write as that’s not what blogging is about for me. So I took a step back and had a little break. I am back now, however I don’t think I will be posting 4 times a week like I was, but still expect it at least twice!  Anyways enough about me and my troubles. I may not have blogged much this month, but my lovely sponsors have! They all have blogs rammed full of interesting blog posts on fitness, health, beauty, fashion, food and life… so grab a cup of tea and take a look through each of them… I would definitely recommend it!



"Hello beauties! I'm Natalie from The Blonde Ethos. Like Cat, I share my honest thoughts on fitness, health and beauty, as I love finding something that does a really great job, be it supplements, skincare, an amazing app or a sweaty new workout. However, I will never post about fad diets or quick fixes as I believe that being healthy is about your whole lifestyle and is a continuous journey, not just a destination. I blog to share what I have learned as well as to track my own progress (I can be quite competitive with myself!) as I strive for a better body, inside and out. My ethos is to make the best of things. And that includes yourself!

I love hearing what my readers think too, so if you've tried a great new fitness class that you think I'd enjoy, or know how I could tweak my diet to see better results, I'm always excited to hear from you. Even if you're just dropping by, be sure to say hello!"”

“Hello. I am Jemma, the blogger behind Beauty In Things. I am no stranger to beauty blogging - in 2010 I started my first blog The Beautiful News, before stopping in 2012.

I love beauty products, particularly eyeshadows & mascaras, skincare products, and hair care, and loved blogging about products and sharing reviews with the beauty blogging community.

I returned to blogging, and started Beauty In Things, which is a slightly different blog to The Beautiful News - it feels more mature and I feel I can post more personal posts than I did previously.

My blog not only features reviews of products I have tried and tested, but also is a place where I post my daily ramblings, and share my photos - I am a bit of a keen photographer and love posting my Silent Sunday photo posts each week (one photo, no words).

I also share recipes that I love, and lifestyle related posts, as well as book reviews. I also moved into my first home (without parents!) in 2012, so love posting home & garden inspiration posts as well.

I do hope you will hop over and check out my blog, and follow along if you enjoy it!”
