Five Favourites - December

blissful days with family and friends
having another six days off work to do almost nothing
thoughtful christmas gifts, like my 'pocket scavenger' book from Tom and the felt slippers my Mum made for me
the news that Tom's Dad has been recognised in the New Year's Honours list and awarded an MBE for services to HM Coastguard. Very excited for him (and very well deserved)
having time to while away hours on my pinterest and find inspirational quotes and pretty things

So you're feeling too fat to be photographed? - this blew my mind and has really changed my thinking
Ruby Wax on mindfulness, busyness and how to have a happier, calmer 2014
New Year's Revolution - a practical kit for getting the best out of your 2014 (found via Lyzi)
Will be using this 'green smoothie formula' graphic to make some healthy smoothies in January!

I hope you all have wonderful New Year's Eves and celebrate the coming of the new year in style (my style is eating party food, drinking something sparkling and playing games at a friend's house - can't wait).  I am excited for the coming of 2014, I love that the arrival of a new year gives me renewed motivation and excitement to examine my goals and get things back on track.  I'm particularly enthused about scoffing all the Christmas chocolate (to get rid of it!) and then getting back into fitness, I think I've rested my sprained ankle long enough and I'm going to have a slow, steady dabble back into running as well as having an exercise bike and a couple of new fitness DVDs arriving.  I've been dedicating a lot of time to thinking about the changes I'd like to make in 2014 and I'm sure I'll be blogging about them over the next few days.  Until then, happy new year!

  8. Love that 'think you're too fat' link - I always think this when people try and lose loads of weight for their wedding pictures - weddings are full of all the people you love and a bride will always look beautiful to her loving family and friends no matter what - plus, we all know what they usually look like anyway!
    That's amazing news about Tom's Dad! How cool is that!?!
    Thanks for including me in your links at the bottom too :)
    Hope you both had a lovely New Year!

  9. Thank you for linking me Rosie I feel so flattered and it's made my day! I'm so thrilled for you and Tom for his father's achievements, it's so incredibly heart warming for him to be rewarded for such a dangerous and courages job! I hope you had a great start into the new year, I'm so excited to see what the new year will bring you, you are getting MARRIED after all! How exciting I can't wait to read more about your planning
