Six things to spice up your mid-week blues


Mid-week is like my least favourite time of the week, mostly because its that time of the week when you’re sort of stuck with this “half-way-through” kind of feeling. Compare it with going for a run – there’s no better feeling than when you leave your house and run those first 100-150 metres (yay, go me, I’m so glad I did this, I feel so good, etc), and obviously, the feeling of reaching back home after a long run is even better. But you know that feeling when you’re half way through – exhausted from how far you’ve come mixed with the excitement of being half way there? That feeling.

To spice things up a little, I thought I’d share six things with you to shed some light on your (my?) mid-week blues…

Sometimes I seriously wonder why restaurants don’t make more yummy and interesting food? I mean, there are so many amazing recipes out there, yet we’re still stuck with the same aglio e olio or grilled salmon with roasted vegetables wherever we go. This is a very serious question that I have.

Cashmere eye mask from Morgan Lane

I have a lot of traveling coming up and I can’t think of a better way to nap away on the flight than in this sleep mask in cashmere. Is there anything worse than using the sleep masks you get on the flight? Those rubber bands you put around the back of the head are made so tight I literally lose my sight briefly after wearing it. That’s how much pressure it puts on the eyelids. Not ok.

Kourtney Kardashian’s home

If I could choose one house to just swap with mine (he heee) without bringing anything of my own with me, I choose Kourtney’s home. Check out 87 stylish things from her Calabasas home here [click]. Interior designer Martin Lawrence Bullard is clearly from another planet. A very stylish planet, that is.

Preventative physiotherapy is the shit

We’re blessed (and cursed) growing up as millennials. But we’re in pain. No other generation has sat as much as we do in a day. No other generation has forcefully gone to the gym to shed calories or lift heavy things to look prettier, and no previous generation has stared down onto a phone or a laptop as much as every one of us are doing on a daily basis (I know that because you’re reading my blog hehe). Point is–time to get to know our bodies, so that we don’t have to live in pain, and so that they last for as long as they should.

I started going to physiotherapy after having constant migraine and numbness in my upper-back for years. Today, I make it a point to see a physio before I take any kind of medicine. Or just to understand how my daily movements will affect my body over time.
