Vice or Virtue Challenges Pt 2

You may remember a couple of weeks ago I posted my first post about the Chrysler Ypsilon Vice or Virtue challenges, which involved me being mostly 'virtuous' by doing my chores before work, spending Friday night in with a face pack and sharing my make-up free face.  And then a little bit of vice with a take-away pizza!

This last week of challenges has been just as fun and I've been really enjoying checking out the challenge site every day, picking a vice or virtue challenge and then tweeting what I've been up to! Here are four challenges I've taken part in this week...

28th - Virtue - Book a bank holiday day out

We spent the Bank Holiday at Hay Festival in Hay-on-Wye - such a lovely day out! I can't wait to share some more photos with you...

29th - Virtue - Download music tracks that aren't your usual taste

I decided to have an evening listening to some Country music, which is a genre I have not explored at all! I found some new songs I actually really liked; my favourite find was Kacey Musgraves, who I actually saw recommended on someone's blog and can't for the life of me think whose it was, sorry! I enjoyed discovering some new music!



31st - Virtue - Throw an impromptu BBQ tonight and celebrate friendship

Impromptu barbecues are what summer is all about for me - cold ciders and piling up your plate with yummy burgers and salad (okay, maybe not so much the salad...) The only friendship I celebrated was one with my old friend Passionfruit Rekorderlig, though Tom was the barbecue master as always, and he is my best friend as well as my fiancé - I'll save the rest of the cheese for going on top of the burger yeah? Do you like our cool little suitcase BBQ? It's so good for just the two of us!

1st - Virtue - Go on a road trip to a new destination

We went for a walk with our friends Lauren and Ben and took Bodhi, and Lauren's dog Lexie for a walk in the forest.

On the way back we took a massive detour and went on a long drive around the forest and got a bit lost! And we got stuck in a traffic jam.... (in the only way you can in the New Forest...)

There's only a few days left of the challenges so head on over to the Dare to be Different site and decide whether you're feeling virtuous or full of vice! As well as the daily challenge prizes there's also a grand prize of a luxury getaway for two to Dubai, now that's definitely worth putting your name in the hat for!

  2. My best friends are called Lauren & Ben and they have a little girl called Lexi! How funny! So jealous of you going to the Hay Festival by the way. Me & Nick were just talking about it last night saying that we should try and go next year.
    We need to see you soon too. Been ages since our last catch up!!
