Kikki.K: Food, Exercise, Sleep Journal

I’ve made the decision to get myself back on track and make 2017 (minus 1 month) a year of health, happiness and general positivity. I’ve got the drive and I now need to equip myself with the tools to keep me focused. Enter Kikki.K.

I was searching for a gift for a friend just before Christmas when I came across the Kikki.K store in Covent Garden. I instantly fell in love with everything about this company – the look, the products, the ethos, and the attitude that it takes to basically winning at life.

With some difficulty I managed to restrain myself and only bought a beautiful gold rollerball pen, and a Food, Exercise, Sleep journal from the Inspiration range to help me get going with my new-year-new-me regime.

I do not like running.

So obviously I signed myself up for a 10K in September.

CoppaFeel! is a breast cancer awareness charity that encourages self-checking to combat the late detection of breast cancer. Since hearing about the amazingly awesome things that the lovely ladies at Boob HQ get up to, to make sure that you are all checking your twins, in 2012, I have 100% supported this great cause. I was part of the Uni Boob Team at Surrey for 3 years, I’ve been to festivals with them on the Summer Boob Tour, and help out at any and every event that I can.
