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……

New Year Clean Up…


And not the kind you think! After a quiet ringing in of the New Year which involved zero alcohol I woke up feeling pretty fresh! So what does a girl do when your other half is in bed full of cold and you’re feeling fresh as a daisy?!? Clean up her closet that’s what!  So…

NYE 2016…


Firstly…I’m super sorry I haven’t posted in ages. It’s not because I haven’t had anything in particular to write about or that nothing has been going on that I’d love to share with you. No, it’s simply because I haven’t felt like it which, to me, is more worrying. So with everyone making resolutions as…

Day 20 – Last Day…Boo Sur! Big Buddha & Light Show…


I’m glad we went out with James and Becky last night as they convinced Rob that a trip to the Big Buddha was well worth it and I really wanted to go. Off to the subway again as we got the line to Disneyland…only to switch to head to the Buddha! I wouldn’t have swapped…

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 18 – Rob’s 30th In Hong Kong…


 Boy did we have some fun planned. After opening cards and presents we headed over to Hong Kong island for brunch at the Supper Club only to discover that the Happy Valley race track we’d planned to go to for some horse racing wasn’t on! We had read it wrong. It was actually happening over…

Day 17: Hong Kong and Victoria Peak…


Wow it’s hot in Hong Kong. Just standing still I was sweating. Definitely in the tropics now and I’m finally getting the humidity everyone talks about. We took the subway from Kowloon over to Hong Kong island today and took the tram up to Victoria Peak. It was an old tram line built back in…

Day 16: Arrived in Hong Kong!!!


Woke up actually in time for breakfast today and packed last night so we’re all ready to get the subway to Pudong airport. … Airport and flight were super simple. Cost us 90p instead of Β£24 by taking the subway and we got a cornetto on the plane too. We were slightly delayed but wow,…

Day 15: Last Day In Shanghai…


Missed breakfast yet again but I was happy with a bit longer in bed to be perfectly honest. We took a walk down Nanjing Road towards the Bund then along until we’d gone full circle. It’s pouring down and the sky-risers are slowly being taken over by the clouds, very moody looking. We had a…

Day 13: Shanghai’s YuYuan Gardens And Moon Cake!


Woke up and absolutely full of cold, used a full pack of tissues before even heading out! We headed out to the Yuyuan Gardens, Shanghai’s old town if you like, which was full of authentic-looking buildings, markets and street food. We got stuck in straight away buying a few gifts, including a tea flask for…

Day 12: We’re In Shanghai!


Up and out by 09:30 we decided to grab a taxi to the airport as I’ve picked up Rob’s cold and we couldn’t be bothered with our favourite mode of transport…the subway…. Everything has been pretty seamless today. The taxi to the airport, the flight, subway to the hotel and now we’re in Shanghai! It…
