Hi Everyone!! How are you all? How are things going?
Long time no see hu?
For the second time this year I find myself letting you know that I am still alive and that I am sorry for not being around.
For the second time this year I have taken a step back from everything so I can get my head back in the game. This time around it has not worked as well as I was hoping, but that is because we have wedding stuff coming out of our ears….and I have spent most of my Sundays in bed…..feeling like rubbish.
Anyway, that’s that out of the way…..let’s get into the things that have kept me going over the last month:
In The Kitchen:
Ok, I appreciate this item does not spend much time in the kitchen, however it does start every day there….so I think it counts.
This month I treated myself to a new lunch bag from TK Maxx (also known as my new favourite shop). This little gem came with a drinks bottle (which is plastic so I try not to use it), 2 Tupperware boxes (again plastic, which I will switch out for glass soon) and an ice pack which is super helpful! It keeps my prepped food cool and fresh all day so I can make nothing my healthy choices all day.
In The Bathroom:
In the continued effort to get myself in good shape, I have decided to whiten my teeth.
The only downside to this: it makes a horrendous mess! To be truthful, I would rather clean up toothpaste splatter than contemplate putting peroxide in my mouth.
In The Bedroom:
Another thing in my bid to stay on the health train, I invested in a FitBit. It is a wonderful little thing that keeps track of my steps and my heart rate during my workouts, which is great…..
I switched it out for a magnetic metal strap that easily cleaned and lightweight. It also makes it a lot less obvious that you are using a FitBit, as it makes the item look like a very chic watch.
In The Living Room (aka The House of Lotz Spa and Retreat):
This month has been very stressful, and I have been trying to relax as much as I can.
At the request of The Boy, I have now incorporated colouring back into my evening schedule. It is something you have to focus on that is not on a small screen. Plus, how can you not feel a small sense of joy from these little happy faces!!
In The Portable House of Lotz (aka In My Handbag):
I am one of those crazy Unicorn Ladies!! They are just the most magical things that really bring a sense of joy and wonder to the world.
To bring a sense of whimsy to the everyday, I have added this little fluffy friend to my handbag. He always brings a smile to my face when I see him dangling from my bag like a happy good luck charm.
Well, that was May!
I promise to do better over the next month to keep The House of Lotz doors open for guests!
Sending you love and hugs xXx have a great weekend xXx
