Me and my little blog like to take little breaks away from each other every once in a while, which to start with is something I had never planned on happening. So in a way I am kind of disappointed in myself that I haven’t kept it going as much as I had hoped for, but on the other hand I am happy because I have been giving myself that mental break I needed to. 

It’s been 3 weeks since I last posted on here but it feels like an absolute lifetime.
It also feels like I am completely winging this right now as I have no idea what to say first.
There are so many things running around in my head but when it comes to actually typing the words up they get mashed up into one big ball and I get stuck with what I want to say. So what you are reading right now isn’t pre-planned or organised in the slightest, this is just simply me giving you some updates on what is going to be happening with my blog/life (positive vibes only). 

First off, I have started drinking tea and LOTS of it. Well, when I say tea what I actually mean is Peppermint tea. So I’m not your typical tea drinker with a drop of milk and 2 sugars, oh no no nooo! I am most definitely on the other end of the tea scale at the moment. I recently bought myself some tea to try from the company ‘teapigs’, I have only ever heard great things about them and so I thought I’d pick myself a few different flavours and try them out. Now when I say flavours, I mean, FLAVOURS. You’ve got your normal peppermint, green, earl grey kind of tea and then you’ve got your popcorn, chocolate mint, teapigs kind of tea. I have 5 different flavours to try and so far I’m on my third, so keep a look out for a review coming soon on those. 


Secondly, I hate my body. Yes, I am being brutally honest and just saying it how it is right now and that is that I hate my body. I don’t feel comfortable in it, I have put on far too much weight for what my body is used to and I just feel disgusting. This is why I have decided to do something about it. So instead of feeling sorry for myself, I want to do something to change the way I feel about myself. I want to love my body and treat it right, I mean after all this is the body I am going to have to live with for the rest of my life, so if I have to live with it then I want to love it. 

I have been going to the gym a lot more the past few months and eating the best I can but I never seem to be able to stick to it like a real trooper, but something about this time round feels different. So from now on this beautiful blog of mine will no longer be all about beauty and lifestyle, yes it will still have those things on here but it will also include health and fitness. Everything from shopping for new workout clothes to what I had for dinner that day.
However, I don’t want this new journey of mine to be all about me, myself and I, because I really want to help and motivate others along the way. Those who really struggle to find that motivation like I always have. I want to be able to share my progress with you and you to share your progress with me. So let’s set a goal, stick to it and we can do this! 🙂


Oh and by the way, I promise this is last thing I’m going to tell you about…
We have signed ourselves up to do a 10K charity run in November this year and I am absolutely terrified of even the thought of it.
This is a big thing for me as I’ve never been great at running; I mean I came last in pretty much every school sports day for goodness sake, I just don’t run. So I signed myself up to do something I really want to achieve, I know it doesn’t sound like much to some but this is a HUUUGE thing for me. I really don’t care about times, I just want to finish it. 

Also, I will be posting on here every Sunday, Wednesday & Friday to keep you all updated!

I hope you have the best day & be happy.
Lots of love, Xandra Rose 🙂

    Sometimes a little vacay away from your blog is needed. Gives you time for yourself and to recharge those writing batteries. You can then come back feeling refreshed with new inspo. I LOVE Teapigs tea! It’s so flavoursome! I love their chai tea and surprisingly I liked the green tea. I’m dying to try more flavours! Omgosh good luck with your 10K run! xx

      I totally agree, it feels so good to have a little break and come back feeling super refreshed and raring to go! It was my first ever teapigs order, I am loving some but not so much others but I will be doing a review all about them soon. Thank you so much! I’m terrified for this run but hopefully with lots of preparation and training I can do it xo
