30 for 30: Take A Pole Dancing Class

Posted by in 30 for 30, My Life In Lists, Projects

Ticking off this goal was doubly special as it was on my 30 for 30 list and my Life List. (I added it to my 30 for 30 as motivation to do it, really – it worked surprisingly well!)

It’s been on my mind for a long time as something I’d like to try, but all the people I know who already do it are skinny minxes with six packs and frightening resolve – neither of which I possess. I was this close to chickening out (a million times, I swear) but I managed to rope a friend into coming last minute (THANK YOU JEN) and we mustered up the courage to get changed into tiny shorts and attempt to spin our stuff.

Look ma! One hand!

Honestly, it was so much fun. No one laughed when we couldn’t do stuff, I didn’t get any serious bruises and even with the minimal amount I was able to do my arms were still aching enough the following day to consider it a real workout. I wrote more about this goal at Go Mighty, so if you want to read more of my rambling about it you can see the story here :)

Friday Thanks

Posted by in Friday Thanks, Projects

Dear WordPress,

Thanks for constantly challenging me. Sometimes the first impression you give is that you’re a bit of a jerk, but the more I get to know you the more I like you. Thanks for encouraging me to give second chances.

5 Lovely Things From Peris & Corr

Posted by in 5 Lovely Things, Projects

This is the fifth post in my “5 Lovely Things…” series. This time I’m showcasing Peris & Corr :)

Peris & Corr are a Welsh Etsy shop, which I like because I live in Wales (which means I’m definitely not going to have to pay through the nose for shipping, hurrah!). It’s also cute because it has a few Welsh language items, which I think is nice. You don’t see it that often on Etsy, but I think that’ll change as the language continues to grow. I actually bought Q one of the Welsh Ideas Notebooks since he’s trying to re-teach himself! :)

They’re known for their screen printing and textiles, and always have something new in stock whenever I check in. They’ve got all their Christmas items in at the moment, super cute!

Side note: if anyone wants to buy me one of those cushions, I wouldn’t say no.

Organic Peacock Print Tote Bag – £8.27

Welsh Ideas Notebook – £3.28

Owl Screen Print – £25.44

Large Merry Christmas Decoration – £9.54


Fair Isle Linen Cushion – £38.79

As always, this isn’t a sponsored post – I just like the shop! :)
