A short video sharing my running journey and how I started running after having never exercised. Please do remember to take things slowly if you are new to running and seek medical advice if necessary.

As someone who has lost a lot of weight I have always wanted a life size cardboard cut out of the old me. I know it sounds random but I just love the idea of a big Jen that I can look at once in a while and give me that buzz of motivation that I definitely don’t want to go back to that! Also I just thought one would be a great visual for when I am asked to do inspirational talks etc. I already take my old clothes to these and photos but a life size cut out does have a bit of a wow factor doesn’t it!

This week I chatted to Kelly who writes a popular blog called Nature Mum Blog. This is a blog about families getting outdoors and enjoying nature. This appealed to me because of course the more time as a family you spend outdoors the healthier you are surely likely to be. Doing exercise as a family doesn’t have to be seen as exercise and running around outdoors can be just as healthy but most importantly fun! The Nature Mum Blog also covers nature activities, science experiments, recipes and more recently a birthing series about difficult births to offer others support.

Sanitary products are not normally something you read reviews about are they, but this is something a bit different so do keep reading! The fab little bag (https://www.fablittlebag.com/) is a disposal bag for tampons, not very exciting sounding I agree but a useful product all the same and I was very intrigued so excited to be asked to review it!

I have openly admitted to you all before I am not really that much of a girly girl in that I don’t take huge pride in my looks and wear make up etc. I also must say I am not always one with the best groomed eyebrows, its just not high on my list of priorities I’m afraid! So, when I was sent to try the Hollywood Browzer http://www.hollywoodbrowzer.com to try out I was quite excited as I thought if it is as pain free as it claims then maybe I could look better without too much hassle or pain!

This week for our coffee break guest I have the lovely Ashley who blogs at #ImNotDrunk which is a really inspiring and unique blog about Huntington’s disease. It really taught me a few things and made me question my assumptions so it would be great if you could read it too. I hope you enjoy it.

This week is Kindness week across the UK and I must say I love this idea. It doesn’t have to take long to do something for someone else and doesn’t have to cost a penny! A few years ago I made a new years resolution of doing something for someone else every day, it lasted about 7 weeks but I had some great ideas and I loved doing things for someone else every day. This week why not take a minute or two out of a day and do something to make someone else smile. Here are some suggestions of free or low cost things you could do. It would be lovely to hear what you have done so please comment if you do something for someone this week.

This week I chatted to Kerry who writes a blog called www.kerryshawmummyoffour.com. Kerry has 4 children including twin boys, she is a popular blogger and also a mature student. When I came across Kerry’s blog I was instantly amazed at how anyone with four young children including twin boys could possibly have time for a blog let alone being a student too! Kerry’s blog is an honest account of her life as a busy mum and a great read.
