If you've seen my twitter feed or instagram in the past few days, you'll know what my big news is this week. If not, then this photo is a pretty big hint!
I'm absolutely amazed that I won Best Lifestyle Blog in the North East Blogger Awards on Wednesday night. I've put a full post up about the awards here if you want to find out more. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone for nominating me; I didn't even expect to make the shortlist so to win is just incredible. I'm so grateful and it's crazy to think so many people actually enjoy reading my content on Hello Freckles. So a sincere thank you to you all.
Last night, after a busy day at work (yep, 6 day working week this week) I took part in the Neon Run 5k. I'll no doubt be putting up a full post on that soon, but I am hoping to get back into running more regularly and trying to achieve some level of fitness! Any tips would be great and if you'd like me to chat about getting into running, let me know.
Today has been a pretty relaxed day, with a visit to my local Lush store to see their Halloween and Christmas products. Everything smells amazing and there's some really cute things which I'm looking forward to sharing with you in a post next week. I bought a few too many things and the manager gave me a couple of unexpected treats so that's bath/showers sorted for the next month at least!
Hope you've had a great week!
