My Fitness Diary - February '16 Edition

February, the month of love, longer days and additional workout days. February is the month that many of us give in in, but for those that stick with it it's also the month of creating a habit...

24 Hours in the City - Leeds

I have a few nights away in the pipeline for this year and I thought I would start up a little travel series to encompass my experiences. In the inaugural '24 Hours in the City' I go back to my roots and spend the night in Leeds...

My Threads, Treads & Treats - February '16 Edition

As another month draws to a close it's time to take a look back at what I've been wearing, where I've been and what I've been treating myself to over the last few weeks. Yes you've guessed it, it's time for this month's Threads, Treads & Treats...

...In a month that has seen me out and about in my hometown almost once a week, it's been a hard one to pick out the highlights from but I think these sum up my month perfectly;

Threads | I spotted this striped, grandad collar shirt in Primark in January and instantly fell for it. It's such a different style for me but I wanted to try and update my wardrobe with more 'grown up' style purchases. It looks great dressed down with jeans & toms on a weekend and was a steal at just £10.

Treads | Paul & I were invited along by those lovely people at The Botanist in Leeds to attend their Gin Tasting World Record attempt. It was a great evening (not least because there was free Gin), I really learnt a lot about Gin, it's origins and elements and we are now officially Record Breakers! If you want some Gin tips, order a Caorunn & Fever Tree next time you're out and unless it arrives served with a slice of apple, send it back!

Treats | Do you remember these beauties from this month's 'My Heart Desires'? I told you I had already purchased something from the list didn't I? I think I may have purchased the last pair on ASOS so I must apologise if anyone else wanted to pick up a pair, I couldn't resist, they're too pretty!

And that's it for another month, what have you been up to this month?

Make sure you join me tomorrow night for '24 Hours in the City - Leeds Edition' and then on Thursday for February's 'Fitness Diary' installment! Until then though x

Instagram Inspiration

It occurred to me the other day just how much time I spend scrolling through Instagram looking at the latest editorial images of my favourite bloggers, catching up with friends both near and far and peaking into the lives of celebrities...

Fitness - Let's Get Started

Ok, so now the January rush has died down in the gym, that warm and bright spot in the sky is making regular appearances and our coffee tables are adorned with more holiday brochures than gift guides, it might actually be time to put the excuses to one side and start to think about getting your fitness journey started...

The Perfect Lip Coffret

When it comes to my makeup collection you will find boxes of eyeliners, base products and shadows hidden away under my bed where I hope it eternally escapes Paul's eagle eyes. However, when it comes to lip products you will find only one or two (ok maybe fifteen or twenty) stowed away in my cabinet...

The Detox Files - Part 2 - Mind

So back in January I introduced you to 'The Detox Files' & I had planned for it to be a 3 part series for January, however, I thought it might be quite nice to keep revisiting the topic throughout the year instead and keep us all focused on looking after our health and wellbeing this year...

Urban Decay Smoky Palette

When I first started getting into makeup in a big way, one brand captured my heart and imagination above all others. I still to this day have my Urban Decay Book of Shadows stashed away under my bed and it's a love affair built to last...

Neal's Yard Remedies + My Best Year Yet

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited down to the Neal's Yard Remedies store in Leeds' amazing Victoria Quarter to spend an evening with them, learning all about the brand, their products and treatments. Here's a few of the thing I learned on the night and a taste of things to come here on Harmony Blaze...

Superdry Sport

I'm sure by now you will have come to the realisation that I have a little addiction to all things Superdry and it's not just me, it's Paul too. There clothes are just so good, they're well made, so comfortable (I know anything there will just fit) and always stylish. Their sportswear collection is no different...

My Heart Desires - February '16 Edition

Well hello February, than you for joining us! Hopefully this month, as the days get longer, we will start to see the sun a little more and be able to start thinking more about our Spring wardrobes than our Winter ones (fingers crossed anyway). With that in mind here's a very fashion focused 'My Heart Desires'...

My February

Woah there, where has February crept up from? It seems like only yesterday I was welcoming in the New Year with a cup of tea, in bed, watching Bryan Adams on the Beeb! Rock and roll aren't I? Moving swiftly on a new month, means new plans...
