marina run...

The Mr and I have been extremely demotivated recently with our running...  We signed up to two races in April and May and missed them both because we didn't do enough (or rather any) training.

We are determined to get back into it!  I don't want to sound like some sort of crazy running junkie but once I actually get going, I really do like it - it's great for clearing my head and just having some 'me' time...

I have been thinking for ages that I need to run around the Marina Bay area after work as it is right near my office.  So I finally did a loop today which took me around the bay from Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC), past the Marina Bay Sands, the F1 stand, the Esplanade, the Fullerton Hotel and back to MBFC.   It was such a good idea as it is such a beautiful area to run around at dusk.  I am going to try and do this a couple of times a week...

I should have taken photos on my phone but here are some pics I found on the interwebs :)  I feel very lucky to live here...

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Japan love...

Some friends of ours are currently holidaying in Japan (they were also our wedding photographers and have an awesome blog here. If you are getting married I definitely recommend them)...
Anyhow, I have been reading their tweets and status updates and am reminiscing and dreaming about Japan.  I spent a year in Sapporo on exchange whilst at uni and have visited Japan I think at least 4 other times... it has been about 2 years since my last visit so perhaps another one is due soon?!?!  There is just something about the place that I love - perhaps it is the memory of some amazing times, the delicious and unique food, the shopping or the wonderful people... I can't put my finger on it but you MUST get there if you haven't already.  
On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:

Uniqlo:  Your one stop shop for basics.  They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts.   UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but c…
