Sometimes we just wake on the wrong side of the bed or little things that, on their own would be fine, all seem to pile up and you feel stuck in a bad day.

Sometimes it looks like I'm the 'fiercely go after my dreams' kind of girl, and in a way I am. I do love to set my mind to something and make it happen. But, sometimes they still scare the crap out of me. In a way that paralyses me and makes me question everything. That happened again last week.

7 Months In: An Injury Update on Style for a Happy Home // Click for more

7 months ago I went for a run - with a strapped knee - as part of my half marathon training plan. My leg was aching from 2 weeks before but I knew I needed to test it if I wanted to get the kilometres in before race day.
