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. 

Instead of going down the chemical route, I have gone down the ever trendy natural path. This mix of charcoal, coconut and clay has been making my teeth that little bit whiter everyday. 

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…..

However, the strap it comes with is rubbish! The rubber snags the hair on your arms and can get very grim if you do not clean it regularly.

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
