Decorating the Christmas Tree

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to decorating the Christmas tree, I like to do things a certain way!


Firstly, the colour scheme. Are you going for the traditional red and green? Or maybe something a little more wintery with blue, silver and white? Me, I like colour, funnily enough just like the colours I use in my logo!

Alan Reed’s Summer Exhibition

Alan Reed is a famous watercolour artist based in Ponteland, Newcastle upon Tyne. On Saturday and Sunday, he held his Summer Exhibition preview.


I’ve been working with Alan for the last 8 years designing his exhibition invitations. I knew straightaway I wanted to pop along and see his exhibition in person. Over the years, I’ve become to used to seeing Alan Reed’s paintings, but there were new ones I hadn’t seen yet, which was a pleasure to see.

Outside Your Comfort Zone

Last year I signed up to do the North Tyneside 10K. I was supposed to do it with my sister and Dad, however I was attending a bootcamp at the time and injured my shoulder so much that I wasn’t able to take part. I went along anyway to support my sister and Dad, see them cross the finish line! I felt so proud of them both.

This year, the North Tyneside 10K is happening again… And I’ve signed up to it! The last time I went for a run, I struggled, I felt really unfit and pretty much out of breath with no energy to move myself forward.

18 weeks before Christmas I was strength training. I managed to drop my body fat by 7%, which I was over the moon with. However, strength training means using your muscles and growing your strength. I started out on an 8kg kettlebell and ended the programme training with a 16kg kettlebell. The feeling of being strong and healthy is amazing, there is no better feeling! However, carrying a lot of muscle means it’s harder to run.
