IMG_3045p I can't deny it, I'm a person of routine. I'll pretty much have the same bowl of Marks 'n' Sparks cereal every single day (Triple Chocolate Crunch, FYI- worth every bite), plan each day at work with lists oozing military precision- and if I'm feeling like a bit of a (Pinterest inspired) maverick, I'll occasionally bake a cake- wild huh? Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with a bit of routine and organisation, but with such a busy lifestyle and little time to experiment- it's understandable some things can become a little repetitive, and well, routinely.
2 However, the lovely people at Alpro have a new campaign. Titled 'Inspire My Day'- they're looking at encouraging us all to try something new each day- something to inspire you, and add a little something to an otherwise manic Monday. Whether it be practicing a new beauty trick (or investing in a cool new product and testing it out), trying a new healthy recipe, getting crafty at the weekends, finally taping that scrapbook up and filling it with beautiful photos, or even dusting off the unused bike at the back of your shed; there's some wonderful eye openers and little nuggets of happiness I'm sure they could add to your day.
IMG_3119p Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be posting several of my favourite tips across my channels and rounding up with a giant post at the end of it- which will hopefully encourage you to take action on those Pinterest boards, and get inspired. I'd love to hear if you've tried something new recently, or have any tips, recipes of hobbies that make a lazy Sunday a little more adventurous and I'll of course credit where due. So, what are you waiting for, join me- won't you? IMG_7918p

  21. Wow this post is so inspiring! I, too am a person of strict routine and I organise my time and beauty blogging effectively with one of many journals, which I edit and scratch in everyday. So to hear you talking about adding a little something new and extra to the day has inspired me to follow in your footsteps!
    Looking forward to the upcoming posts!
