One step closer to Graceland – “uh huh”

*Meep*

My trip to Graceland, Memphis, Tennessee is fast approaching! I need to not think about it too much otherwise my level of excitement will explode and I won’t be able to focus on anything else (and I actually have quite a busy to-do list in AND out of my day job before I set off on my Tennessee road trip!).

In the interim, to get one step closer to Graceland, I went to the Elvis Presley exhibition at The O2 arena in London. I didn’t know what to expect but the exhibition is really well done…

Get over the January hangover

It’s dark by 4:30pm, it’s cold outside, we’re back to early get-ups (eugh), commutes and routines.

We’re broke from over-spending at Christmas. We’re “dry” from over-drinking. We’re having to take action in the fitness and diet department from over-eating. We’ve had to put our Christmas decorations back in to the toy box for a whole year.

January might be the most depressing month, but here are just 5 ways it doesn’t have to be one big hangover……
