Fitness | Simply Health Great Aberdeen Run...

Running has never been my strong point nor has it particularly appealed to me. However, this year I needed to give myself a new fitness challenge and so it seemed rather rude not to sign up to the inaugural Great Aberdeen Run (10K).

Life | Hello September...



Oh August, you flew by in an instant.

August was a busy month for me. Not only did I turn 30 but I also ran my first 10K at the inaugural Great Aberdeen Run. In addition, I saw a lot of my parents, had a few days of annual leave doing nothing but drink tea (and mourn the loss of WiFi as BT hadn't installed it properly), had my 1st sick day in years (unfortunately it was the 1st day of my annual leave!) and had a wonderful time at The Body Shop's Blogger event with a little Nandos beforehand.

September will be another busy month for me. Not only do I have another Wedding on the cards but I am also away visiting half of England (not quite) as well as a trip down to Edinburgh. In between I am hoping to get some more blog stuff done (Fingers crossed!) and to organise my meal planning better as I normally get to Friday and that's when things go awol until I get to Monday again.

If there is one thing that I am consistent with then it is definitely my skincare routine. It goes without saying that I change it around frequently to try out new products on the market as who knows there could be a favourite in amongst them. However, there are a few firm favourites that will remain.

If you remember my last skincare update post, I was using very few products at that time. Since then, I have ditched a few and acquired a few.

So what products make up my current skincare routine?
