Discovering Bavaria with BenQ

I have spent the last two days in Bavaria at the launch of the BenQ GS1. It has been an amazing experience. So I’m really happy that I got to attend.

I had never been to Bavaria before, I actually had to Google it to find out where it was. My geography is atrocious. In fact I had never actually flown by myself before. So there were lots of new experiences for me. Turns out flying by myself was a breeze, it’s so much easier when you aren’t arranging everyone else.

Project Bridesmaid #11

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 diet, focus on my weight loss 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.

During my journey I will be getting to try all kinds of new products and sharing my experiences of them with you. Continue reading Project Bridesmaid #11

My May Degustabox

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 May box was amazing, sorry the post about it is later than normal, I’ve been a bit delayed since coming back from holiday but it was a real treat to come home to the May box, filled with plenty of pick me ups! A few choccy bits and loads of drinks, lots of new things for me to try. Here’s what I got;  Continue reading My May Degustabox

Father’s Day Fun from Hobbycraft

I recently took a trip to my local Hobbycraft in Norwich to grab a few bits so that L and I could make some fun Father’s Day gifts. Now L is only two and half years old, there is a limit to what he can craft but no limit to the mess he can make, or the fun he will have making it!

So we pushed back the rug, got him into his little craft apron, these are brilliant and only cost £1, well worth purchasing one, and then we set about immortalising Daddy by creating a portrait of him.

We love these play aprons

Locally Sourced Meals

Today is the first day of The East of England Co-op‘s sourced locally fortnight. I have always loved how the EoE Co-op has supported our local producers and this fortnight celebration highlighting what you can buy from local producers is an amazing way to discover new foods, last year I found Hadleigh Maid and I’m now addicted to their Hot Chocolate.
