Fitness Routines Inspired by Women's Health magazine

Have the Rio Olympics got you thinking about your own fitness routine? Chantelle of 'Mama Mummy Mum' blog finds fitness routines inspired by her Women's Health magazine subscription....

The last time I posted I was discussing my love of Women's Health magazine and just how it inspired me to not only improve my eating habits but giving me ideas on changing up my exercise routine, keeping me motivated. So in this post I thought I would share with you my own fitness routines in the hope that I might in turn inspire a few of you to perhaps get exercising or pushing yourselves further.

Exercising Monday, Wednesday and Friday and then going for a run on a Sunday. Read More

9 Women to Watch at the Rio Olympics 2016

On the eve of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, we've rounded up a group of women to watch for their sheer sporting prowess and undeniable talent. From home turf Brazilian talent in Volleyball to the first woman to ever wear a hijab in the Olympic games, 2016 is set to be an exciting year for this group of Olympic hopefuls...

Katie Ledecky, 19

Sport: Swimming

Odds to win a medal: 1/4

Team: USA

Why you need to watch her: She's tipped as unbeatable. Insiders have said it's not a case of whether she'll win, but by how much. Her speed is matched by her endurance too; she's just as fast swimming the 200m as well as the 800m. That's the equivalent of a runner winning a 100m sprint and a long distance 5000m run - and unheard of in the sport.

Did you know? Katie is one of the tallest swimmers in her field, standing at a stately 6ft tall. Read More

A Summer Salad from Women's Fitness magazine

Looking for the ideal summer dish? This summer salad from Women's Fitness magazine was whipped up by Rebecca of 'All About You' blog...

One of things that you would expect in an issue of Women’s Fitness is exercise advice and workouts. One other thing that was a pleasant surprise - the delicious and healthy recipes in the issue. I love looking for new recipes all the time, so this was perfect as there was plenty to try.

Country Living's Homemade Iced Tea

Around this time of year there's nothing quite so lovely as sitting in your garden, the sun on your back and a glass of something chilled in your hand. Georgia of Love on the Wall blog is enjoying the little things, embracing slow living and loving her Country Living magazine subscription with a glass of homemade flavoured iced tea. Cheers!

I think it’s important to admire the beauty of the nature around us sometimes. My parents had hopped off on a plane to America for a holiday, so I was in charge of watering the plants for a few days. They take great care of their garden and it is beautiful all year round. Although I'm not one for clearing out the chicken coops, I loved admiring the nature a little more being in charge of watering the garden. Noticing little juicy green tomatoes forming on the plants and bright red strawberries from the hanging basket I got my dad for Father’s Day.

Great White Sharks & National Geographic

Intrigued by the elusive (and sometimes deadly) Great White Shark? Elaine from Fun as a Gran discovered there's more to these incredible creatures than meets the eye in National Geographic magazine

When I was a child way back in the 1970s, I remember one of the things I looked forward to (other than my weekly copy of the Beano comic) was my father's monthly copy of the National Geographic magazine (now known as just National Geographic). It always stood out and caught my attention among the plethora of publications that graced our family home.
