Sick Tings 012

6 May 2018

A lifestyle roundup of my week at university featuring all I've bought, watched, eaten, seen and been up to. Featuring writing for a blogging magazine, a sunny bbq and a body shop bloggers event
So, a few weeks ago I mentioned that I was writing something kind of exciting, and this week my article went live! I wrote a piece on Blogging Slumps; what they are and four tips for getting out of them, and this week it got distributed. I wrote it for Blogging Breakthrough magazine, which, if you haven’t already checked it out, I suggest you do so (and not just because I’m in it). It’s quite a lengthy piece and took quite a while to compose so any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Another thing that happened this week related to the blogging world, was I attended another blogging event! This one was hosted by The Body Shop, and was at West Quay, for any of you local readers. I had a really lovely evening and came away with quite a few new products to try. I’ve written an entire post on the event – which you can read here. I’ve been giving the products a go, and the stand out product is definitely the Ginseng and Rice Toner… My skin feels so smooth and soft, and this product is the only thing that’s changed recently, so I’m wholeheartedly putting it down to that.

One of my housemates has been on placement on the Isle of Wight for the last few months, and this week saw her finally return from that faraway land. The evening she came back we went for dinner, and ended up going to a restaurant called L’Osteria. I’d never heard of it, but oh my, was the food incredible. The pizzas are 18” of pure Italian delight, and I’m proud to say that I did manage to eat the whole of mine. I went for the standard margherita and I wasn’t disappointed. So, next time you fancy going for a pizza, this is definitely one place to consider.

Guess who finally made it to Parkrun this week after what feels like forever? Yep, it’s me. The weather was far too nice not to do it, and I’d already managed to convince myself to do it, so heading down there was a breeze. It was a tropical (for England) 22 degrees, so it’s fair to say I was a little sweaty once I’d finished. Having not done any training in the last 6 weeks or so I was very positively surprised by my time. Perhaps no training is the best form of training for a Parkrun, who knows. Afterwards, myself and some of the others in the Athletics club headed for brunch at a local restaurant. We sat outside in the sun, sipping pink lemonade and munching on granola. It was lovely. 

We also had another house BBQ this week and summer I am so ready for you. For a very last minute decision (it went something along the lines of, ‘let’s have a bbq’ ‘okay’ ‘I’ll go to the shop now and we’ll cook once I’m back’), we managed to whip up quite a storm. We had burgers, sausages, pasta salads, crisps, fruit, vegetables, the lot. I’d give it a solid 10/10. We even met one of our neighbours after living next door to them for the last 10 months, nothing like a free burger to bring people together.

What have you been up to this week?
