I know, I KNOW…sorry everyone. It is only October, but I have been making lists with the girls as a bargaining tool to get them to be good girls until Christmas….yeah right!
Their lists include pink bikes, books and make up and to be honest mine is not much different.
If I am a good girl until Christmas, please may I have…
Raw Cacao butter supplies: I love making raw chocolate and run out of this stuff pretty quickly
Yoga socks! For doing yoga on chilly winter days like these ToeSox.
These amazing printed Tadasana leggins by Sweaty Betty. Looovely.
An Orange Diva 5 bike. In cherry. Just look at it…
Nike Dri-Fit Running socks to stop my feet from blistering.
Oh, and an iPad. Go on Santa…I have been a very very good girl
What are you drooling over for your festive Wishlist?
Ok endo warriors, my fellow sisters in pain and suffering, this is for you.
I am taking part in 2 events to raise money for endometriosis – the Nike Run to the Beat in September, and Cycletta 40km bike ride in Brighton in November. This is a big deal for a mum of two with extreme pain and fatigue who is on a mission.
I may have to walk the courses on the day, I may crawl it, but I will do it.
I would like to thank Freya lingerie for supporting me during my training and for sponsoring me to attend the Cycletta event.
If you would like to help me, you can donate to my JustGiving page here,. Contact me for info on how your brand can get involved. If you want to join me and take part with me, let me know, and above all else please spread the word and donate.
Let’s do this.
So here’s a little list of things I have been writing away from this here blogette last week:
✎ A post on Blurgroup about the Huffington Post not paying bloggers.
✎ I asked if Going Viral is the new Marketing Myopia
✎ I talked about why brands should be investing in design over on Cherry Sorbet.
✎ I shared my love of instagram and why fashion and beauty brands should be using it.
✎ I also looked at Nike’s Make it Count campaign over on GraphicDesign.com which will be up later this week.
Want me to blog for you? Give me a shout over on the contact page.;)
Last Sunday I ran the Nike Run to the Beat with my Team Bangs ladies.
I have been training for this event since May, as those of you who followed my progress will know.
It has been a really, really busy Summer. Since July it has been non-stop with house move, hen party organising, training, wedding and family stuff, then half marathon. Suddenly, my weekends are empty. Read More >
Unless you have been on the moon this last year you will know about Team Bangs on the Run. We are running the Nike Run to the Beat half marathon on Sunday (sponsor us here
), and being part of this amazing team has been…amazing.
So, what next? Life after Team Bangs? Read More >
My lovely friend, Team Bangs leader and blogger Muirreann Carey-Campbell is in Glamour mag this month, and will be doing a regular style blog for them on Glamour.com.

Mumma Run with some one the Team at Nike
As you know, I am an honoured member of Team Bangs on the Run 2, and readers will have been tracking my progress here on Dexterous Diva.
Team Bangs on the Run is the brainchild of blogger extraordinare, prolific Tweeter and all round slice of awesomeness that is Bangs and a Bun, also known to some by her real name Muirrean, but to us girls on Team Bangs as Mumma Run. Read More >
The Dexterous Diva loves Nike Lunar Glides, it is official.
Unless you have been living in a far flung cave this last year you will be more than aware of my mission with Team Bangs on the Run and my running journey documented here on Dexterous Diva.
Team Bangs are very proud indeed to be supported by the brand giant that is Nike, who have generously kitted us out in the latest togs (here we are in a pic from Womens Running this week, looking suitably fly!) Read More >
I like to open with that, it makes me feel all a bit Vanity Fair; I reckon Thackeray would be proud.
The lovely people at Nike have been helping us girls of Team Bangs on the Run 2 as we train for our half marathon. 6 weeks to go now, but who’s counting? Read More >
I am a very lucky lady.
Nike have been fabulously kind and have sent the Team Bangs on the Run girls some new kit to help our training.
We all have new shorts, a running top, some Lunar Glide trainers and some training socks.
Here is my new loot – pardon the My Space style photography, so 2006 – but you get the idea.
Nike haven’t sent us the stuff for me to do this post. Also, I would run if I only had my old gear I have had for years Read More >
