May Must Haves 

Another month has gone and another has come! I am still in shock to think we’ve passed mid May already. So much has happened in the last 20+ days and yet it feels like I have not done anything at all. I was in Seoul for the first 9 days of the month, I spent majority of my time clubbing, drinking and eating the lovely Korean foods and to return back home to find an empty fridge was a bit of a downer.

may must haves

As always with my must haves, I list things that I want, I am liking or I will need in the near future. For the May Must Haves (actually more must do) list, I am thinking of more detox, dieting, chilling and relaxing. I probably should be adding things like exercising gear (see picture), sunscreen, sunglasses and stuff but looking outside its raining so definitely nothing sunshine related needed right now and as for exercising gear…ya well good luck with that. I am a realist!!! I laugh in the face of…. too many movie quotes lol

May Must Haves - Gym

May Must Haves (DO)

Detox – with the amount of alcohol I consumed in the 10+ days I was in Seoul I am definitely in need of some proper detox. You will remember I shared the Skinny Teatox 14 day morning tea that I tried out a couple of months back and the 28 day tiny teatox which I also tried a few months back. I thought since I am overly bloated beer belly and I still have some of the teatox left, why not use it to my advantage and cleanse my insides for the moment.

Dieting – Koreans have impeccable and delicious tasting foods it’s a crime to go over and not indulge in the Korean BBQ, the many Korean Stews, some Shabu Shabu (Japanese I know but I first ate it in Korea) and not forgetting my favourite fried chicken feet and blood sausages. It’s enough to make one go on a diet after such a feast. I am not good with extreme diets so I thought I try out Acai Berry food supplements in my smoothies as a way to boast my intake of good nutrients. I also have left over matcha powder, shakeology and Nutribuddy to mix up the smoothie flavours plus if all fail I could always try Forza again.

Chilling and Relaxing – I talked about making an effort this month to have some ‘me-time’  in my May goals and I have been practicing that effortlessly. I came back 2 Monday’s ago from Seoul, I had to re-adjust to the time zone so I made a point of working from home and taking some time to myself to just relax. Obviously I did my required 7.5hrs but working from home meant I didn’t have to travel outside my home before I could relax. I just finished work and switched off completely unplugging my phones, laptops and other gadgets and just stared into the unknown.

As I have mentioned before, my Must Haves lists are not your typical structured lists. I go with what I like and the May Must Haves list is no exception.

What is on your May Must Haves (or must do) list?

    It is crazy to accept we are not hitting the half way point of 2016 and yet it only feels like it was yesterday I was wrapping Christmas presents!

    • May 27, 2016 / 8:51 am

      I know the feeling only too well

  2. May 24, 2016 / 6:47 pm

    I’m going on holiday next week and its going to be full of booze and food, I’m sure this is what my June must haves/dos are going to look like! I always try and find some time to relax, I find it so important to just cut off from everything xx

    • May 24, 2016 / 6:57 pm

      Oooh girl have fun, let’s do the regrets and detox on your return lol

  3. May 23, 2016 / 7:41 pm

    I like the Slendertox tea, works really well for me. Hope your relaxing is going well!

    • May 23, 2016 / 8:30 pm

      Not tried slendertox yet but glad it worked for you and yes thank you my relaxation is going really well (too well sometimes)

  4. May 23, 2016 / 5:01 pm

    I think relaxation is just as important as exercising personally speaking, though I do more of one than the other ha ha x

    • May 23, 2016 / 6:40 pm

      Hahahaha I know what you mean

  5. May 23, 2016 / 12:49 pm

    I love those pink trainers, they are perfect for Spring x

    • May 23, 2016 / 1:21 pm


  6. May 23, 2016 / 9:16 am

    Chilling and relaxing is a goal everyone should have for themselves I think sometimes we all work so hard we forget to take some time off x

    • May 23, 2016 / 9:46 am

      So true, hence why I am making an effort this month

    Great goals/must haves for this month, I adore the pink trainers. There’s nothing worse than getting back to reality after a holiday is there. I’ve also been trying to recover from over-indulging last month so healthier eating and the gym are what I’ve been doing too.

    • May 23, 2016 / 6:17 am

      Thanks, I definitely over indulged

  8. May 22, 2016 / 9:24 pm

    My musts for May are to buy some Yoga attire in preparation for starting my first Yoga class at the end of the month.

    • May 23, 2016 / 6:16 am

      That’s awesome, I have yoga mat but nothing in attire which I will be picking up too this week as I start my class this week too

  9. May 22, 2016 / 8:02 pm

    A great must have list! I want some me time but hope to get it before my baby is due in july

    • May 22, 2016 / 8:39 pm

      Thanks and good luck, hope you get some me time soon

  10. May 22, 2016 / 7:56 pm

    Oooh the baby pink trainers look so cute and I love the leather gym bag. Great May must haves.

    • May 22, 2016 / 8:38 pm

      Thanks Ana

    These are definitely some great goals to set yourself! It’s always difficult coming back from an amazing holiday and having to get back to real life!

    Musings & More

    • May 22, 2016 / 8:37 pm

      I know right!! The struggle is real

  12. May 22, 2016 / 5:37 pm

    I’m going to have some ‘me time’ too this month and that definitely includes turning off all technology 🙂

    • May 22, 2016 / 5:38 pm

      Glad to hear that

  13. May 22, 2016 / 5:33 pm

    I noticed you mentioned you like fried chicken feet. A Chinese friend of mine loves them too but she told me the other day that apparently they are not so good for you. I was going to look up why but haven’t had a chance to yet x

    • May 22, 2016 / 5:37 pm

      I love them and I will be upset if it’s true lol

    I love your May must haves wishlist. I need to invest in some more fitness wear and dedicate time to working out.

    • May 22, 2016 / 4:30 pm

      Thanks Jessica

  15. May 22, 2016 / 3:44 pm

    Interested in trying detox teas (even though I read recently that detoxing is a myth…) so I am going to head over and read your experience. Hope you find some time to chill out this month 🙂

    • May 22, 2016 / 3:53 pm

      Thanks, trying to chill today.

    Relaxing is definitely important! I try to squeeze that in as much as I can. I also must have fruit! I’ve ate rather unhealthily and now with the sunny weather, fruit is a must have!

    • May 22, 2016 / 2:41 pm

      I need to incorporate some healthier options in my diet too

  17. May 22, 2016 / 1:32 pm

    I think finding time to relax is very important, something I need to do more of, I am actually starting to get fit again this week (well that is the idea we will see if it happens) x

    • May 22, 2016 / 2:40 pm

      I am planning he same for this week hopefully I can start getting fit

  18. May 22, 2016 / 11:12 am

    Definitely taking time to relax is on my list for this month. It’s so important just to switch all the gadgets off and take some time for yourself.

    • May 22, 2016 / 11:16 am

      I couldn’t agree more, I am doing that a lot this month

  19. May 22, 2016 / 10:30 am

    Getting fit is on my May must Do! Though really struggling to find the time to do it with being with my toddler. I used to be quite a fit person and so missing that fresh feeling that it can give you going out for a run, or doing some yoga.

    • May 22, 2016 / 10:49 am

      I know the feeling I want to get back into it

    • May 22, 2016 / 10:48 am

      I know, same here
