While I definitely don’t think there’s a perfect time to start doing anything (whether it’s having a baby, quitting your job, building a house, etc.), I will say that I feel this week was a particularly terrible time to start back on my exercise bullshit. I’m generally the first to roll my eyes when a Brit announces they’re “boiling” in the summer heat, but reader, on my runs this week, I was boiling. My head turned a very fiery shade of gazpacho red and I was sweating in places that I didn’t know I had sweat glands. But it wasn’t the heat from exercise that really caused me a problem, it was the fact that it was nearly impossible to cool down. In a country that only needs air conditioning for, like, 10 days max out of the year, it’s really damn hard to find a place to chill– literally. Luckily a cold shower + super cold shower wine does, eventually, do the trick.
Anyway! Here are some things that are hot in a Paris Hilton way and not a temperature way from this week:
I think I found my autumn 2019 kick-around sneakers???
I honestly don’t know why I haven’t shared this before (have I? I should put a search function on here, even though I’m 100% the only person who will ever use it) but I’ve been eating a super lot of Kim Kong Kimchi lately, rather than just a moderate lot. So much, in fact, that I’m contemplating buying a 4kg container. But that would be a bit overkill, right? I don’t think my UK Barbie fridge could accommodate.
My plants are thriving in this UK summer jungle and just as I lust after much prettier flats than my own, I’m also lusting after H for Hannah’s Jupiter Pots, which will be available in September, to re-home some of my plant babies. The colours! 😍
Hey, you know what? My computer is too hot. Much like the British men walking the High Street without shirts, my MacBook Pro is positively boiling. Its little fan is blowing as fast as it can and my fingers feel like they’re typing on lava, so I’m gonna call this a day. Have a great week and stay hydrated out there, kids!
