I’m so sorry I’ve been so quiet recently on my site! I am back!! I thought I would start with a what I eat in a day post as I have just joined Slimming World and I am loving every second of being on it!
So where do we begin? Let’s start with breakfast. As you may or may not know I work a job which requires me to be up at half five every morning and out of the door by half six so my go to breakfast are overnight oats!! They are high in fibre, free of fat and full of fruit (granted there are only blueberries in this pot but I had run out of raspberries and strawberries). If you are on Slimming World this would be one free food, one super free food and a healthy option B
After breakfast we move on to lunch and snacks. Yesterday I had two apples and an orange as snacks from breakfast to lunch and then from lunch to dinner. For lunch I had tomatoes with Tuna and sweetcorn (mixed with 1tbsp of mayonnaise) followed by a banana. I also chose to mix up my normal drink of water with a can of Diet Coke (it’s free). This filled me up until I was able to get home for dinner.
Dinner was absolutely delicious last night! I had made the Slimming World cottage pie over the weekend and cooked it last night to share with my mum. It was so filling and full of nutrients, I added more green beans and used some of my syns by adding gravy.
At about half past eight I have my final eat of the day and it is always a HIFI bar. This little taste sensation is the perfect way to end the day and the Salted Caramel flavour is by far my favourite!!
Overall yesterday I had around 10 syns and felt full up but comfortable. I am really learning to enjoy food for the right reasons!!
So that’s it for my first blog post. It’s good to be back and I promise there will be more to come!!

I haven’t done one of these in a long time!! I wanted to share with you some of my favourite products which I have been using over the past month. Product number one is the Child’s Farm Moisturiser, this product makes my skin so soft and has really helped reduce my sisters eczema, it was recommended by my friend who uses it for her baby but it works on the skin of anybody!!
Next up are the John West Snack Pots, especially the tuna ones, these are so tasty and are perfect for a quick and filling lunch on my rush days at work! My favourite has to be the sun dried tomato pot but I think they are all delicious!!
Next has to be my Bare Minerals powder foundation!! This foundation is amazing and gives my skin great coverage without antagonising my skin to much. It is so light and last much longer than some of the other foundations I have used, which have mostly been liquid.
My last favourite for this month has to be Spotify! This app is amazing I love the range of music that you can get through one app and using my daily playlist to be introduced to new artists that I may never have listened to before!! I find it much better than other music apps I have used in the past and I would really recommend it to anyone!
I know this is rather a short post but I promise I will try and get in to posting some more in the future!! I hope you are having a lovely autumn!!

Last week my best friend and I went to the Costa Del Sol to chill and spend some much needed time in the sun! Our flight was super early on the Monday morning so we stayed at the Premier Inn at Gatwick’s North Terminal, of course we had to get a pic of our matching pjs in the bathroom mirror because the lighting was just right. We arrived at Malaga Airport early on Monday morning and went and collected our car which was a horrible colour Fiat Panda, we then drove down to Fuengirola which is around 20 minutes south of Malaga. We found a parking space and our first trip was to the Zoo where there were so many school children on a tour but we managed to spend a couple of hours looking around, we also got a really nice picture so that was a bonus. After the zoo we walked through the lanes down to the beach where we found a lovely café for a spot of lunch, whilst we were there we met a couple who used to live in Hastings but now live out in Fuengirola full time talk about small world! After lunch we went for a wander down onto the beach and it was then time to head back to the car to drive to our resort. We stayed at Club Marbella which is part of the Crown Resorts, a chain of family resorts with something for everybody, around the Costa Del Sol. The apartment was lovely and we couldn’t wait to get down to the pool and chill. Most of our holiday was chilling down by the pool where I watched the first two seasons of Line of Duty on Netflix and I read the whole of Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, we also did a bit of swimming in the pool. On Wednesday we ate at the restaurant on the resort as there were Flamenco dancers performing and I wanted to see them. At dinner I found the most delicious snack/starter of deep fried camembert with cranberry sauce OMG it was amazing! The Flamenco dancers were awesome as usual and of course there had to be somebody who kissed them at the end. On the Thursday we went down the road to Little Italy for dinner. We had cheesy garlic bread which was so gooey and delicious, I then had Seafood Pasta cooked to perfection in a tomato sauce and for dessert it had to be the classic Coconut Ice Cream served in half of a coconut, it was an amazing last meal of the holiday and I can’t wait to go back there for food sometime soon! We flew back to Gatwick late on the Friday night and it was safe to say that we had a fabulously relaxing holiday. I would also like to say how immensely proud I am of my best friend for conquering a lot of fears on the holiday from flying on a plane, to driving in a foreign country and speaking to different people without prompting, I knew how difficult the holiday was for her and it is safe to say she was tested a lot that whole week! Thank you for an amazing experience best one!!

I thought it was time for another what I eat in a day post as I haven’t done one for a while and it is now time for a more spring like meal plan. Breakfast was a bit rushed and I really didn’t fancy a shake this morning so I had a small bowl of chocolate chip weetabix minis with almond milk. I did accompany this with a banana and a glass of mango aloe water. My snack for the morning was an apple and a Trek protein flapjack because again I was on the move around the prison so wanted to snack on something easy. My lunch was a tuna sweet corn pasta salad which was completely delicious and had kept really well!! My afternoon snack was a satsuma and a Greek yoghurt with honey because it was that little bit of sweetness for a kick in the middle of an afternoon. Dinner was one of my favourite spring/summer quick meals of a 50:50 wrap with lettuce, tomato, a little bit of cheese and breaded chicken (I did also add a tablespoon of onion and garlic dip for a little bit of sauce). My drink of choice is water at the minute and I am absolutely loving the mango aloe from Herbalife!! What are your meal plans like?
