Dog Walk Fun.

Today, instead of a traditional blog post I just thought I'd share a little video of some dog walking fun we had at the park this morning. Given that Obi is part sled dog (he's half Alaskan Malamute) we've been experimenting with getting him to pull along my boyfriend on some roller blades...he's by no means an expert but it's gorgeous to see him having fun and getting some good exercise (yes, he's a little chunky, we're working on that one!)

I've edited some footage from our DBPower action cam (like a Go Pro but cheaper, you can find it on Amazon here), it's not perfect as I'm still learning how to get the best footage and getting in practice for when we hit the mountain again in the couple of weeks! But I'm fairly please with how it's turned out.

Five Ways to Have a Positive Morning.

Following on from my recent post on 'Creating Healthy Habits', I thought that I would share five ways you can go about having yourself a positive morning. If you want to have a positive day, it's really important to get the day off on the right foot and set things in motion for the day ahead.

Creating Healthy Habits.

Humans are creatures of habit. I'm sure all of us have our little routines that we complete on a daily or weekly basis that are intrinsic to our day. Some habits can have a positive impact on our lives, for example, exercise, and some habits can have a negative impact such as smoking. Today I wanted to chat about how we can work towards creating healthy habits that will promote our well-being and improve our overall quality of life.

Easy Dairy Substitutes.

I think for lots of people, myself included at one point, the idea or possibility of giving up milk products is a terrifying one. Most of us grow up drinking or consuming dairy in one way, shape or form. However, having now kicked my dairy habit (which was surprisingly easy), I thought I'd share some ways that I've found to simply substitute dairy, I promise you won't feel like you're missing out!

So I Started A Bullet Journal...

Up until a couple of weeks ago, I'd never even heard of a bullet journal. I saw a couple of posts on my Twitter timeline about them and thought "wtf is this...tell me more". So I hopped on over to the Bullet Journal website and immediately got drawn in by the possibilities. Ryder Carroll (the brains behind the idea) describes it as "the analogue system for the digital age". And I'd agree, there's something very old school about having a physical journal and diary with written pages and space to just be creative.

Veganuary Round Up.

January is over, can you bloody believe it! That also means that Veganuary is now also over. Now I know I haven't done a full month of Veganuary as I started at the end of my holiday (around the 10th Jan) but I thought I'd do a little round up of my thoughts, well, just because I can.
