So what have the past seven days shaped up like for me? Well there was the one mile run that almost made me vom, a less than successful cooking attempt, a failed visit to Covent Garden in the sun and a trip down to good ol’ Brighton again for a session with the besties, oh and Mark got dragged along too. Poor guy. Two thumbs up I’d say. Though last week was a good’un this week is going to be stellar because baby, I’m going to Milan. The suitcase stuffing starts now. Expect packing posts galore and a gelato fest coming to my Instagram feed v.soon. Arrivederci London!

    This really made my day! Singing along to the Dirty Dancing soundtrack is the only way to travel :)

    Good for you for the half-marathon training! Possibly useful tip: don’t tie your trainer laces too tightly. I learnt that the hard way losing a toenail because of the friction during the Royal Parks Half Marathon years ago (you’re welcome for the image :/) Also, semi-technical question, can I ask what brand and model your headphones are please? Spiffing vlog this week!

      Haha – appreciate the tip ;) And the headphones are the Bose Noise Cancelling ones which although were a bit of an investment, are all kinds of awesome x

        Thank you, I was looking for some editing headphones so will check them out! Good luck with the running, YOU CAN DO IT! :D

    Those pancakes look great. I can never get dairy-free pancakes just right, maybe I’ll try these ones.

    Just wanted to offer some encouragement for your half marathon! I was in your shoes not too long ago, and my sister had convinced me to run my first half with her. Those first few miles were always the hardest for me. What really made the difference was having a nice cool-down/stretching session. That kept the injuries at bay. Keep up the good work, you will rock the half! :)

    • http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Anna

      Great tips – thanks for the encouragement!! x

    Getting into running can be so daunting but setting yourself that target is a great way to go about it! Just remember when you don’t think you can go a step further, you can! Its all in your mind! GO GIRL!! Also #DemBrows had me in stitches!!
