Joining the gym ๐Ÿ‘Š

So, I’ve done it, I’ve joined the gym! It is pretty much opposite our flat, it takes less than 2 minutes to walk there so there’s no excuse really is there? (Keep telling yourself that Roseanne!) For just using that gym it’s only ยฃ19.99 which I didn’t think was too bad either considering this is usually my bug bear about gyms (they are seriously expensive right!?!) That and the fact I spend most of my time trying to work out how to turn the machine on to a suitable level & where I can plug my headphones in (gym essential no 1!)

So in  preparation for sed joining of the gym I decided to kit myself out. Well I may as well look the part!! Because let’s be honest I havnt got a clue what I’m doing once I’m in there.
So let’s take a look at my costume ( I mean gym gear ๐Ÿ˜†) 

Disclaimer: I’m not sponsored by Primark but 1. I BLOODY love it. You’ll know that if you’ve been round here before or met me in real life And 2. I’m going to sweat all over it, why spend a fortune?!

First up, tops! 

I picked two different tops, both made of that similar gym clothing material (which according to the label is ….. Polyester & elastene, theres a fun fact for ya! Stretchy stretchy!) 

I chose a pink top and a light grey one as I thought these were nice and would go nicely with the leggings I also picked up. These were ยฃ5 each.


I went for 3/4 length ones as I prefer these and I picked them up in light grey, love these.

They were ยฃ5.

I picked up another sports bra/crop top thing. I already have one from Primark from a little while ago, that I use for Parkrun, that looks like this โฌ‡

The new one I picked up is just a plain black one.

This was ยฃ3.50.

I also grabbed some socks! Does anyone else have somewhere in their house where their socks must go for a holiday because I buy so many and yet never have any to wear!! 

I picked these up especially for the gym so I will put these in a super safe place! (Like that’s going to make a difference Roseanne.) Worth a try.

They cost ยฃ2.50.

And finally, a lovely new water bottle (I have a serious water bottle/travel mug/lunchbox obsession. Is this what happens when you become an adult in a full time job?) It’s seriously getting out of hand BUT this ones lovely and hardly breaks the bank at ยฃ2.50 So let the obsession continue. 

So, those are my gym bits and bob’s.

On a serious note, I need to change my mindset really because I can’t just think I can eat crap and get away with it because I’ve done a class or been for a run, I need to make exercise a part of a more balanced lifestyle. Wish me luck ๐Ÿคž

Until next time,

What’s in my bag? Work edition๐ŸŽ’

I’ve just bought a new bag that I love and will be using temporarily as a work bag so I thought I would do a ‘what’s in my bag?’ work edition. 

Let’s start with the bag…

This gorgeous rucksack is from Asda and was only ยฃ14! 

It’s a black and cream aztec print with flecks of gold embroidered through it.

It has a popper at the top and string with these cute tassel details to close it. It has an handy zip pocket inside and two little pockets that close with poppers on the front.

So, What’s in my bag?

Most importantly (in my eyes ๐Ÿ™Š) my lunch bag! this bag is so cute with ๐ŸŽต’All you need is lunch! Na Na Na Na Nahh!๐ŸŽต I got this in London and it fits loads in it!

I always carry my trusty water bottle with me, very important for staying hydrated especially when you are constantly on the go like you are in my job!

A few essentials that I always have in my bag are as follows:

โ˜” because British weather is always unpredictable.

Deodrant to freshen up.

๐Ÿ”‘ keys, for home and work. (Lego Dumbledore ๐Ÿ‘Šโ˜‡)

๐Ÿ’ทmy purse ๐Ÿ‘ฑHairbrush &๐ŸŽงheadphones

And finally some chewing gum! I like the green Wrigleys extra spearmint.

I also always carry my phone but I’m writing this blog post on it atm so I can’t take a photo of it haha. I have the Samsung S7 in Rose gold.

I also always have a book in my bag but of course this changes regularly, I’ve just started reading Zoellas latest novel ‘Girl Online: Going Solo’ I really enjoyed her other two books in the series so I can’t wait to get stuck into this one.

I can definatly tell Winter is almost here, everyone is getting colds so I’ve got these in my bag as I’m suffering at the moment! Hopefully I won’t need them for too long.

That’s it ๐Ÿ‘ I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog post  

What do you always have in your bag? 

Until next time,

Roseanne ๐Ÿ™‚
