So in about a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to start losing some weight and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer, happier and healthier person.
I have decided to vlog about my journey as that will give me a visual reminder of where I’ve been and where I am and as it’s something that makes me rather uncomfortable it will also help to keep me in check. Plus it’s always good to push yourself.
Duerr’s jam have a fantastic range if jams, marmalade and sauces and I have been experimenting with the Grapefruit Marmalade as it is just a bit different from the norm.
Of course breakfast is the obvious choice, spread thick on toast it a wonderfully zingy way to start the day but for something a bit different why not try my Sticky Grapefruit Drizzle Cake. It’s easy, super tasty and works every time! Continue reading Sticky Grapefruit Drizzle Cake→
As part of my attempts to lose weight and get more active ready for Bridesmaid duties last year I have been sent a fitness tracker and connected bathroom scales from Terraillon.
Terraillon are a housewares brand, who design and make health and well-being products and have a whole range of connected devices that link to their Wellness Coach app. There are kitchen and bathroom scales, activity trackers, and blood pressure monitors.
When I started my little project to be a healthier, slimmer and fitter Bridesmaid next year, it wasn’t just about diet to help me lose weight but also about adding exercise into my routine.
As I’m not one for massive amounts of exercise I was pleased when Deep Heat got in touch kindly suggesting they send me on of their new Muscle Massage Roll-On’s, just in case I were to need it. Continue reading Deep Heat Roll On→
Time for my monthly Degustabox feature, if you haven’t seen previous month’s posts, Degustabox is a monthly subscription box, filled with amazing new foods for you to try out. Including new lines from big brands and foods from smaller brands that you maybe weren’t aware of. For £12.99 per box you will have contents worth well in excess of that, get the chance to try something new and maybe even find a new favourite treat. I enjoy getting to try things I wouldn’t normally buy for my family.
The March box was awesome, with a few Easter bits, lots of new things to try, some tasty snacks and a few handy things to take on holiday, yummy. Here’s what I got; Continue reading My March Degustabox→
We love a good board game and when we went away for Easter we were really happy to take along SHOUT! a really fun game from Drumond Park.
This was perfect for us as it can be played with only two people but teams can pretty much get as large as you want them and let me tell you it is hilarious! It’s filled with quirky questions and funny picture puzzles that you have to make connections with and some of them will leave you feeling like you’ve gone crazy, whilst other’s are refreshingly easy.

I have already been lucky enough to review a couple of the Boxcitement Subscription Boxes and I loved them, so I was more than happy to take a peak at the Animal Magic Box they sent out last month.
If you missed my previous reviews Boxcitement is a subscription box service that sends you a letterbox friendly box filled with lovely things, designed to excite, perfect for people who love to give gifts and receive them too, with cards, stationery, jewellery, the cute and the kitsch.
As a treat before I started my detox I made up one of Husb and mine favourite curry’s a Goan Fish Curry, using one of the kits Hari Ghotra kits.
Hari specialises in North Indian cuisine with the aim to simplify recipes without losing their authenticity. The kits are filled with all the dry ingredients like spices, pastes and lentils that you will need and there are loads to choose from so there is bound to be a curry kit for you. The kits are priced at £3.50 which is great value and you don’t need to add to many other ingredients. Each kit is linked to a video on Hari’s website so you can follow the online tutorial if you want. I chose just to use the easy instructions that came in the kit.
