So project summer body is on now I've
put down all the chocolate and rubbish I've eaten the last couple of weeks, I'm
starting small with short bursts of exercise rather than trying to go for a run
straight away. I'm building up to more exercise, but to start with I've been
loving one song workouts.
I've been doing 5 one song workouts
throughout the day, having a mad 5mins in the morning, at lunchtime with some
of my class (we have a mad dance around the room) one after school and then two
before bed. I've found so many online and on Pinterest, so I decided to have a
go and write my own.
Having a chat with the kids, we decided
we wanted to write something using Happy by Pharrell Williams, we often use
this one as a brain break in maths lessons as it keeps it fun, so I sat down
with some of the kids and we wrote this, they tested it and you can fit it all
in once if you go steady with it or you can get two rounds in.
I will point out, I am not a fitness
instructor of any kind, I'm taking inspiration from lots of other examples that
I've used, if you’re not sure of any of the moves, have a quick Google.
a few weeks off of the whole clean eating thing, the layer of chub that ad
started to go as slowly snuck back on and has brought a couple of friends with
it! I hate how I feel, but instead of moaning about it, I'm back on clean
eating and getting into a fitness routine.
First thing to sort was the kitchen cupboard. Living with the boy
means that there are always biscuits or cakes in the house to tempt me so my
snacks needed sorting. I try and have snacks which are higher in protein and
fibre to keep me full, but buying Nakd bars every week from Tesco gets a tad
expensive. When I found that I could buy the big boxes of them for cheaper than
the smaller packs I knew I needed them in my cupboard.
I signed up to Natural Balance Foods and set about deciding what I
wanted. As a crisp lover, I like something with a bit of crunch so picked the
Cocoa Crunch bars. Very similar to the regular Cocoa bars but with added
crunch, one of these with a cup of tea hits the spot in the morning. With 18%
protein content, this really does help keep me going until lunch time, which is
great as I often don't eat lunch until later on.
For £13.99 you get 18 bars, that’s 78 p per bar, cheaper in any
supermarket, plus I have a good 3 week supply in my cupboard for when I need
it. Delivery was free and I could track it the whole way here, plus, because my
order was slightly delayed I got a free Banana Crunch bar, which didn't last
I've already been back and ordered another box of Trek Flapjacks
to add to my afternoon snacks at school.
I can't rave about these products enough; I now need to decide
what my next flavour will be. If you would like a 10% discount then leave your

I've walked round Boots so many times this past week, meeting up with friends
in town for a wander and a shop, adding things to the wish list of what I could
buy all the things I really need!
these might become mine by the end of the month, who knows but all of them will
be mine at some point!
Full Exposure Palette - £36 , how gorgeous is this palette?! I've read
every review that’s popped up in my feed, swatched it in store 4 times and had
the MUA on the counter do a look with one but I've yet to part with my money. It’s
such a lovely collection of colours, perfect for the types of looks I normally
wear. Next, Ojon
Damage Reverse Treatment - £34, my poor hair is very dry at the moment,
having just added a fresh ombré to it hasn’t helped so I need something like
this to bring life back into it, and also it smells amazing! Benefit
Big Easy Multi-Balancing Complexion Perfector - £27.50, another product
from Benefit, another one I've read every review of that pops up, this is
perfect for me as its supposed to be perfect for oily skinned gals like me.
Micellar Cleansing Water - £4.99. The cheapest of the bunch but something I
keep looking at as a replacement for Bioderma, something for in my gym bag to
get ready quickly or just to take my makeup off quickly before the end of the
some of these needs to be in my collection ASAP, which bits are you after this
So nails, they were kinda what I loved blogging about. It feels like I haven't
blogged properly in ages but moving and pretty nails don't go hand in hand but
now things are more settled, I can reach for the paint again!!
So first up, I've wanted to use the Street Artist Top Coats for
ages, especially now the weather is nice and sunny, these look awesome!
The topcoats are a twist on last years speckled topcoats, this time with
the addition of neon glitter bits, I love that these look like splatters of
paint thrown against a blank wall.
You could pick:
Alley Attitude - Blue Neon Splatters
White Splatter - Purple & White Splatters
Boombox - Neon Green Splatters
Urban Vibe - Neon Orange Splatters
These are worn over Models Own Hypergel in White Light, perfect
for the blank canvas. They were easy to build up, it’s simple to place the bits
where you want them on the nail, plus you can layer it up as much as you need.
For £3.99, they're an easy way to update your nails for spring/summer; I can't
wait to wear these throughout the summer!
What do you think? Which ones would you pick up? Xx
don't often pop into M&S, only really if I'm stocking up on Percy pigs or
walnut whips, as a kid it was where we went to pick out Nan's Xmas present, so
I was very surprised when I went in on one Percy related mission to find myself
standing looking at the Phillip Kingsley range in their beauty department.
After a quick walk round, I found loads of different brands that are normally
only available online or in John Lewis, some that I love and some that I've
never tried before.

is almost over, and I must say it’s been a good month! As well as a few other
things, I've managed to get through a load of stuff this week; it’s been
amazing to see it pile up ready for taking the pictures.
So this month, I've got through loads of hair care and skin care,
quite a lot of them have been samples which is great!!
I'm not going to list everything as there's a lot, but some stand
out products I have to mention. Firstly, Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara, great
mascara that really wings out the lashes as well as making them full and black.
I've had this for maybe a bit too long but it’s great, plus the brush is fab,
one that is a must for in my collection. Next up, Benefit Its Potent Eye cream.
One of my favourites and I can't wait to not be saving every penny so I can go
and get the full size. Another product that needs a mention is the Lee Stafford
Hair Growth Treatment, although I'm not trying to grow my hair, this is still a
fab treat for the tresses. Finally, one of my oldest products is the Britney
Spears Curious Perfume. This is one of the oldest (oops) perfumes I own, but I
love the scent and I'm quite sad it’s all used up now.
So there we have it, another month of empties, and a good month it’s
