I'm seriously loving these boots - they literally work with everything! I can't wait for it to get warmer so I can whip out my Birkenstocks. Isn't that the best time of year?

These ankle boots are always on my feet these days. They're bridging that gap between the seasons perfectly well. I think they work really well here because the midi skirt is quite blocky already - the open toe and exposed ankle help break everything up.

I'm back form a fun filled four days spent with my sister and one of my closest friends. We laughed, we sang and just enjoyed ourselves. I will never stop thanking my lucky stars for the people in my life. I feel so lucky to have such wonderful friends.

So, I've been thinking about goals at work recently, putting together my objectives for this year so my manager and I have clear sight of what I need to deliver and how I'm to deliver it. It's got me thinking about goals for myself - a list of "life objectives" of sorts. I've been reflecting a lot on how, after graduating from university, there's not a clear path of milestone anymore. I'm definitely someone that does well at working towards targets - but I'm coming to terms with being completely independent for the first time is my life. It's a scary and exciting thought, finally marching to the beat of my own drum - but what do I want that beat to be? What do I want to work on?

My first "life objective" is to treat my body better. I'm definitely becoming more confident and comfortable with myself and the way I look but I've not been looking after the way I feel and the way I fuel it. My diet it terrible- I go form extreme to extreme. I'll either be eating chicken and veggies or pure junk (when Ben and Jerry's is on offer I'm there). I always feel so light on my feet and in high spirits when I eat right, I'm going to try and organise my meal prep a bit better from now on.

Fitness - This is another part of my life that I go hot and cold on. When I was training up to do a mud run (did I mention we raised over 600 pounds for Shelter!) I was really motivated to go the the gym and get my workouts in. Again, when I first decided to get fit enough to run 5K, working out just seemed to fit in seamlessly. I think to key will be planning out workouts and working up to a fitness goal. Maybe I'll do the 30 day squat challenge.

Work Life Balance - I've been doing too much in my weekends and my bank account is not happy with me. I've been trying so hard to make sure that I have a good work life balance that I've overdone it a little I think. I know I'm still young but there's a little voice telling me to slow it down a little. I've got a few big things coming up this year: festivals, a girls holiday so mellowing out and having some chilled out weekends in the run up to that can't hurt.

That's all for now - I'm going to focus on these areas for a while and see where I'm at in September.

Wish me luck !

This weekend, I went and did an obstacle race for Shelter with a  group of friends from work. I'm not going to lie, it was tough, and I wasn't expecting to be knee deep in mud for most of it. I'm so proud of everyone though, we raised over  ‎£600 for Shelter.

In other news, Craig David was incredible - we sang along and danced the night away. It's so easy to forget how much fun concerts are. I'm setting myself a  goal of going to 3 more this year.
