Smoothie Time…Lean in 15


I still haven’t really started my regular gym sessions but me and the other half were so excited to try out our Kenwood blender we just couldn’t resist a smoothie. And where better to test out a recipe than from Mr Joe Wicks’ Lean In 15… Rolled oats, chia seeds, blueberries and banana followed by……

Lean In 15…Decisions!


So forget all that new year, new you stuff, I’ve actually had this and the other two Lean in 15 books for a few weeks now and I’m super excited to try some of Joe Wicks’ smoothies and recipes, but which one first?!? I’ve been looking at the low carb recipes as I haven’t got…

Day 19 – A Super Leisurely Penultimate Day!


We lay in till late then headed out to the waterfront before stumbling into what turned out to be quite a popular dim sum restaurant. We had an absolute feast with spring rolls, seafood rice, chilli pork buns and BBQ pork steamed buns…sooooo good! As we waddled back up to the hotel we nipped into…

Day 2: Beijing And The Forbidden City


We started the day by wandering over to Tian’anmen Square (third time we’ve been here now), popping our bags on conveyer belts where they went through scanners and walking through what looked like an airport scanner…not sure either of them were on seeing as the hand held scanner one woman was using wasn’t even switched…

Day 1: Beijing…City Of The Beep


So it’s been absolutely ages since I’ve posted anything up on my blog and to be honest it’s because I’m in China!!! (Also, I’ve only just realised I can access WordPress…can’t get on FB or Instagram). My first impression of Beijing, where we’re kicking off our three week adventure, was one of mixed emotions. At…

Weekend Round Up in Sweden…


After a two hour delay thanks to easyjet not having enough cabin crew we arrived late on Friday evening in Bjarred, our friend’s hometown (close to Lund). After dumping our bags we headed straight out to the beach…literally a two minute walk round the corner… Watching the sunset we wandered down to the pier to…

Healthy Red Lentil Soup…


Ok so the weather is scorching but I’ve never really been one to stick to the normalities of things, besides, I wanted to try out this new recipe so soup it was in 20degree heat! Super easy and quick all you need is: An onion roughly chopped 1 carrot peeled and chopped 1 large potato…

Spaghetti with chilli prawns, salami and breadcrumbs


Sooo last night I decided to use up some king prawns I had in the freezer and had a little look on my fave BBC Good Food. After searching prawn recipes for a couple of minutes I came across this one and though yea! Right up my street – chilli, garlic, pasta and prawns! Super…

Bank Holiday Weekend Round Up…


From smashing phones and being hit on by a tranny to calamari and cat cakes, this Bank Holiday weekend has been especially fun-filled and important to me. Day 1 Saturday: With my bestie leaving for London in less than a week and her 29th looming we had arranged some serious daytime drinking antics around Liverpool….

Weekend Round Up…


Ok so this weekend was mainly spent drinking, eating and catching the sun in a mere 8 degrees! Saturday, a group of us travelled to Lytham for our friend’s bday and spent the day hanging out in beer gardens wrapped in our coats and scarves, clinging to our ice cold pint glasses (only the Brits)!…

Anti-Ageing Gin…Could It Be?


OK so it’s quite unusual for me to post twice in one day, but perusing through the Huffington Post on my lunch break I came across the best semi-news/lifestyle post I’ve seen in a long time…anti-ageing gin or Anti aGin as it has been appropriately named! Obvs, I think it’s probably a load of hokum,…

Date Night: Italian Fish Club


I have not been here for what seems like a life time, but last night the other half said the words “Italian Fish Club” and I swear my heart skipped a beat. Spontaneous, fun and with a delicious menu to choose from we headed off to Bold Street (I lied, I already knew what I…
