Life Lately… An Ins & Outs Post

I’ve been seriously lacking in the blog motivation area lately! In an attempt to kick my butt into gear I thought I’d get into the groove of things with an ins and outs post, as I haven’t done one of those for a while.

Ins:
Jurassic World – I’ve seen this twice now and think it’s amazing! I was a huge fan of Jurassic Park (the first one, the second and third weren’t so great!), and to be honest I felt like the whole dinosaur thing was over and done with. But my brother wanted to go see it, so we went and I’m so glad I did. I loved every moment of it and some bits really had me on the edge of my seat. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you’re a Jurassic Park fan.

Sunny Summer – For once Britain is having a rather nice summer!! Granted there are still a few cloudy and rainy days in the mix, but it’s also been gloriously hot and I’ve had the chance to enjoy it for a change. Ben and I have been working on the garden (update on that here) and we’ve had a few days out enjoying the lovely weather. Let’s just hope it hangs around for a while.

Nearly 5000 Subscribers! – This has been a big goal for my channel since I started and I can’t believe I’m almost there! I know everyone says that the numbers shouldn’t matter, but you can’t help but feel like you must be doing something right when all these people subscribe because they want to see more of what you have to offer. Rest assured there will be a giveaway when I reach 5k – any suggestions on giveaway prizes?

Saving For My Wedding – After being engaged for nearly 5 years Ben and I are starting to save for our wedding!! No solid plans as yet other than a deadline of 3 years. It’s going to be a very budget affair as, although I said “Ben and I” are saving, I’m actually the only one saving for the wedding. Ben is saving for our next home instead, which is equally important for both of us as we have decided we’d like to start a family and would like a slightly bigger house to do that in. So big expenses on the horizon!

Lashes – my lashes have been looking so good thanks to RapidLash – I will be doing a review on that, I just need to gather all the pictures together and type up the review!

Outs:
Lost Healthy Lifestyle Motivation – actually it’s more like a lack of self discipline. I still really want to eat healthy, workout consistently, get enough sleep, all that good stuff.. I just lack the discipline to actually do what needs to be done =/

Planner Planning/Decorating – I’m finding it harder to plan/decorate in my new Personal Planner than I thought. It isn’t the same size as the Erin Condren planner so the stickers I’ve bought don’t quite fit properly. I can work around that but at the same time I feel like I need more stickers and washi tape to decorate and I don’t have the funds for that, especially now I’m saving for a wedding. I will persevere though. Do any of you have one of these planners? If so how do you decorate it/plan with it?

Monthly Back Pain – this may be a little TMI but about a week or so before That Time Of The Month I get horrible back pain. Every Month. It actually seems like it’s getting worse each month. I wake up with pain all the way down my spine from the top of my neck all the way down to my lower back. I might maybe have a couple of times throughout the day where it seems to ease off a little but it’s always back full force by bedtime. Any suggestions on things I can try or do to stop this, I’m all ears..

This turned into a longer post than I anticipated!! I hope you are all having a lovely summer so far, and hopefully I will speak to you in another blogpost soon..
