#FoodFriday Not just your standard omelette!

Image
The last couple of weeks I've been so good and 90% of the time I've been really healthy and back on it again! I'm so chuffed with myself for snacking on fruit rather than a bag of crisps but after a big gym session, I really fancied something filling but still healthy. After watching some cookery show while I was at the gym, they made a huge one-pan omlette and I certainly felt inspired on the drive home... What I used: 1x Red Onion 1 tray of diced and cooked sweet potato 1 large handful of spinach, chopped slightly 1 large handful of plum tomatoes, cut in half 10 (approx) mushrooms sliced 2 chicken breasts, sliced 8 Eggs
I just fried the onions and mushrooms together until they were soft and then I spread out the other ingredients evenly across the pan before pouring over the whisked eggs. I had it at quite a high heat on the hob and every now and then give it a shake and get a wooden spoon around the sides. Finishing off with a sprinkle of grated cheese and put und…

Meerkat Experience: Hoo Farm, Telford

Image
Not a beauty or fashion post but couldn't not post about the best afternoon I've possible ever had last Friday!
For Christmas I brough Nick a Meerkat Experience off of Groupon for £40 down from £100 and the day finally arrived for us to go meet our new little 4 legged friends. It was like waiting for Christmas as we're both obsessed with Oleg and co and we've both always loved Meerkats.
Firstly, want to say thank you to the guys at Hoo Farm for being so understanding when we turned up late for our appointment and fitting us in despite it being our mistake. 

We got in the Meerkat enclosure area and the lady (wish I'd remembered her name) sat us down in the middle on some logs and started to tell us about the 2 meerkats that proceeded to run all over our laps and around our feet. She was really informative and was brilliant at answering all of my million and one questions and was clearly really passionate about the animals.
The two brothers were hilarious, they w…

Empties!

Image
My first ever product empties post! Was having a clear out and tidy up earlier and there were sooo many empty bottles in the bathroom and in my make up drawers so thought I'd do a post as I really like reading what other people have finished and whether they'd repurchase! 
So yeah, just a little post but here ya go.. 
HAIR 
Both the shampoo and conditioner form the Pantene Pro V Breakage Defence range were empty, I've already brought both at least 2 or 3 times this year so it's definitely a repurchase! 
I had 2 of these that were empty (think they were BOGOF in Boots - and clearly I need to tidy up more often!). They are super cheap and they do the job but there are other hair treatments I prefer and in all honestly, with how much hair I have, I only get 3 or 4 uses out of these. 
My favourite ever hair mask/treatment. Been using it for years and I currently have 4 already repurchased as they were half price in Asda and as they're normally quite expensive I stocked…

WAH London Nails Boxset

Image
The worst part about working for Boots is seeing all the gift sets every day that I desperately want to try as I walk to and from my office through the middle of the store! We've had the WAH London boxsets in for a few months now I was sure I wasn't going to spend £85 on them at their original price so I kept walking ... day after day! A few weeks before Christmas they went down to £45 and then just after Christmas they went to £25. Even then I thought it was a bit steep (even though it wasn't - I was just being tight to try and save money!) but there was one in the clearance section last week due to the box being damaged. Believe me, I've never walked so fast through the store when I was told they were on offer at £12.50!




I admit I don't know much about WAH London and I've never brought a nail art set in my life (I'm more of a get the end of a hair grip and attempt to do patterns with normal nail paint kinda gal!) but I loved the box and it looked great f…

Your Tea's Anti C Tea - First Impressions

Image
So it's been a couple ofs week or so since I started my batch of Anti C Tea from Your Tea who I previously had the magical Tiny Tea from - this time I'm using to to battle cellulite on my bum, thighs (front and back), my back, top of my arms and even my shins! Something must really attract cellulite to my body. I've not worn a dress or any outfit that shows my arms or legs off at all since I was probably on holiday last July and I can't remember another time since so after reading this, I'd been debating it for months on end wondering if the before/after photos I kept seeing on Your Tea's Instagram were genuine and whether it was worth the £30!



But since having it for Christmas of my family, I've been waiting for a perfect time to try it without having to wait for Summer - I wanted to make it worth it and waited for a reason to start using it rather than going straight in when I had no plans to go out or any reason to wear a nice dress. As I've got a f…

I've joined the Stella and Dot Team!

I've only just mentioned it on Facebook and Twitter as I've been waiting for Mr Postman to deliver my first order and supplies - seriously, it's been like waiting for Christmas! And my birthday. All rolled into one! But I finally want to say that I have officially joined the Stella & Dot Team as an Independent Stylist!
