Gym bag must have

Hello lovelies,

I’m back at the gym, I’m new a member at Virgin Active. Whilst I could spend my entire post about how awesome this gym is, I have something more important to blog about. GYM BAG MUST HAVES.

Now whilst everyone works out differently , when I go to the gym I also shower after so I need to pack and ensure I have everything ready to go. So this is my gym bag must have list. Some my say gym bag check list.

1. Earbuds – preferably Bluetooth

2. Water bottle – preferably resusable

3. Small Towel – if your gym doesn’t give out towe, please bring one

4.Deodorant – Everyone this is not a drill

5.Fitness tracker -helps keep you motivated

6. Spare Undies – you know why.

7. Spare socks – I always seem to forget to pack some, so I always keep a spare.

8. Hair ties – you can never have enough or find them when you need them

9. Makeup remover – clean those pore before your sweat it out

10. Feminine Products – because life happens

11. Hairbrush – for before and after grooming

12. Shampoo and condition or Dry shampoo – if your like me, you don’t want oily hair.

13. Body wash – whether or not you wash your hair, please wash your body

14. Any clothes you want to change into

15. And finally any makeup you want to apply.

ps. and your gym pass 🙂

The beginning is near!

So my last post was about my new acquisition of my plot of dirt. Well today I share with you the exciting news that my dirt will so be getting some new fancy accessories.

We started build on the 27th of March.

I’ve started a project that hopefully I can stick with which is taking a photo every week to document the progress and hopefully by the end of everything I can have an adorable time lapse. It’s been a long process, lots of emails back and forth and I can only imagine a whole lot more. However  I will blog about it all because that’s the most exciting thing I really have going on at the moment. So be prepared for house updates at every stage of the build.


Other interesting news in my life, we adopted a stray kitten. Which I thought was a girl and named her Miss Fluffy Winkle however she is a he and is now named Olympus. For everyone following me on Insta you would have seen that I’ve started sewing and have been tormenting this poor cat and making him wear snazzy outfits that I whip up with my fancy Singer; which I got for Christmas but only got around to playing with in March.


So this blog post has a lot about beginnings I have begun my love affair with sewing, I’ve made many pillow cases, I have clothes for my cat and I’ve even made a bag. I want to learn more sewing, I’m hoping to learn how to sew zips and buttons. Well how to get my fancy sewing machine to do the button thing. For the time being I’m happy just sewing straight lines and unmeasured pillow cases.
Something else that is new is that I’ve purchase a Bluetooth keyboard from eBay $12 delivered from surprisingly not China, it came from Germany however its made in China but it works amazingly. I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner. I was listening to my favourite podcast Cortex and CGP Grey and Mike were discussing there step ups and I figured it was time for a Bluetooth keyboard and seriously it is life changing. Because a laptop is too much effort but an iPad is at little awkward to type on and a Bluetooth wireless keyboard is 100% the way to go.

And finally my final update and new beginning is my little indoor garden. I purchased few different plants that will hopefully survive my abuse. I love plants they make me feel so a peace, to be honest I love the outdoors however the outdoors love me too much. Mainly the mossies, they are a killer. So to make my self more at home and more relaxed I have a small little green corner to make me happy. By the time your reading this however everything is probably dead.


I know this post is all over the place at it is just pretty much an update of my life however at this stage in my life that’s pretty much where we are at. It’s been a transition to be honest. A big one.
