I’m back and I’m jet lagged! Topher and I had the most amazing time on our honeymoon and I can’t believe how much we managed to squeeze into a two week period. So much so that Topher says I killed him. I might have killed myself as well. I’m so tired but it was totally worth it.
I managed to vlog almost the entire time so I now have what it probably a couple of hours of film to edit through. And I don’t even know how many photos I took. It’s going to be a busy couple of weeks! I’ve decided to split down the next few blog posts into location and food separately as it would be way too much for the individual posts otherwise. So I’ll be starting with next week and talking about what I did in New York, followed by what I ate in New York (it was a lot!).
In other news, we got back on Wednesday morning and since then I’ve been trying to sort things out and get back into a routine. Topher went straight back to school and I started doing client work again too. I’ve also been trying to tidy up the house and get some new routines set up for myself. One of the “souvenirs” I got in New York was a new bullet journal so I’ve almost got that all set up and I love it.
In health news, I had an amazing time trying all the different foods but I’m looking forward to eating some more healthier things in future. I went to Slimming World yesterday and found I had put on 6lbs in the two weeks I was away. I’m impressed it wasn’t more and I think it would have been if I had not been walking and if I had been drinking alcohol as well as all the food. So it could have been a whole lot worse. I’m also planning on joining a gym soon so if anyone has any tips, hit me up – I’m a complete newbie.

I didn’t realise exactly how much I did this week until I started writing!
I’ve been still dragging my feet getting back into my full routine but I introduced another section and feel a bit better for it. As for out of the house activities, they’ve been plentiful. We started the week by helping some friends out with their wedding dressing business. Apparently I really enjoy putting chair covers on. Quite satisfying and it was nice to get out of the house and help friends.
I stuck to Slimming World 100% for about 3 days and 50% the rest of the week.
And by some miracle managed to lose a pound so not bad going. My main worry was that the night before weigh in we went out for a friend’s birthday which included dinner and LOTS of cocktails. But I guess my hard work at the beginning of the week paid off. Yay!
I dyed my hair
Finally took the plunge and it’s now black with a hint of blue. I think I’m just about used to it now. It’s taken me a week. I love the length now so much – washing and brushing my hair is a breeze and my head feels so much lighter. Someone asked me if this was my new wife hair which made me laugh. My usual look is short dyed hair – I just let it grow long for the wedding so I could have it up. Yes I know that post is from 5 years ago but that hair makes me feel most like myself.
I left my natural colour in for the wedding I think because I plan on having a lot of different hair colours over my life so I wanted something natural for my wedding. Not sure if that makes any sense but it does to me and that’s all that matters.
I’m on a bit of a sorting out and decluttering spree again
Hopefully planning on doing another car boot this weekend (please don’t rain!) and I’ve been working hard to try and get the house back to normal again. I just let so much slide in the run up to the wedding. Everything is everywhere. I’m just glad I can work in my office again.
