pancake day (Small)

...I miss blogging. Like, really miss blogging. I miss writing down my thoughts and documenting what has been happening in my life. I miss the interaction with other blogging people. I miss being "out there". I started to feel this way a few weeks ago when an emergency trip to Kwik Fit on a Saturday morning (don't ask!) found me taking advantage of their free Wifi and catching up on lots of my old favourite blogs. I lost myself in other people's lives and adventures for a bit and I started to … [Read more...]

It’s just a number…

number on scale (Small)

... I really shouldn't have weighed myself this morning. I hadn't in weeks, maybe ever closer to a month. I had been feeling pretty good in myself the last few weeks. OK, I felt a little bit more "hippy" than I would like, but it didn't really bother me. But now I'm aware that I'm 4-5 pounds heavier than I thought I was it feels like the end of the world! My first thought was that I didn't want to eat anything for the rest of the day.... Oh, and maybe I should start exercising "properly" … [Read more...]

My New Love…

yoag cat jinx

So, it is a huge surprise to me that I have fallen in love with yoga! Not so long ago I couldn't bear it as it was too slow, too boring and it didn't burn as many calories as a high impact workout. I went to my first ever yoga class at a local gym around February time and was shocked. I didn't realise that yoga required you to be so strong in your body and in your mind as well as being still, calm and graceful. I actually ached the next day! I attended almost every week after that. Sometimes … [Read more...]

Top Doggy Picks


If you are anything like me & you are a dog owner you will love to treat them! I hate spending money on myself but if it's for the dogs (or cats) then I have no problem! 1. Ancol Tan Leather Lead from Collars and Tags * £2.61-£8.87 - I think this would suit Holly instead of the usual pink/purple options for a girl dog! 2. Naked Decor Happy Hot Dog Pillow from Bobby Berk Home $50 - adore this! 3. Orbee-Tuff Orbee Ball from Planet Dog £8.45-£15.95 - a tough chew-proof ball is … [Read more...]

Get Happy!


Quick heads up about the fantastic FREE meditation challenge/experience hosted by Oprah Winfrey & Deepak Chopra. I took part in their last 21 day challenge and loved it and it is back! This time the theme is "Expanding your Happiness". Who wouldn't want a bit of that?! It is currently on Day 3, but you can join up to 4 or 5 days behind and still access the meditations from Day 1. Never meditated before? Not sure what to expect? Each day is a 19-20 minute audio, where Oprah gives an … [Read more...]

Psychic Reading

me nana frame (Small)

I have just had a fab psychic reading, all in the name of research for the blog! I was contacted to see if I would like a free 20 min psychic reading through Kooma. Of course I said yes. I have been wanting to go & see a psychic for over a year now, just to see if my life is heading in the right direction etc but I was put off by the fact that there are so many charlatans out there and often extortionate prices to see someone who has a good reputation. I even went to a local psychic night … [Read more...]

I’m Going To Find A Happy Place…

chester anglesey (Small)

We headed back to Anglesey for a few days at the start of July and stayed at "The Barn". We had 3 dogs with us this time (Meg was boarding with us, so we took her for a little mini break). We had lovely weather (apart from the last day) and even went kayaking & body boarding in the sea (no pictures of us in wet-suits!). Yummy cream tea on the last day at the fabulous Giddy Aunt's Tea Room - amazing scones & such an inspiring lady! PS - I don't have much to say about … [Read more...]

Goodness Direct Haul

goodness direct (Small)

I made an order with Goodness Direct recently and got the following healthy goodies: I was sooo excited to get them! I have tried out some things already: I love the raw cacao nibs sprinkled onto fruit & yogurt or on top of a smoothie. I've been having the apple cider vinegar in a little warm water every morning & also using it as a toner (mixed with water). Does anyone else use it like this?? I've tried the raw cacao powder in a smoothie but found it quite bitter (maybe I … [Read more...]

I Quit Sugar – Paleo Inside Out Bread

loaf cut (Small)

Yes, another recipe. This is an AWESOME recipe. As you may know I have been experimenting with cutting out sugar, so I was super excited to win a copy of Sarah Wilson's new cookbook, I Quit Sugar For Life. I LOVE this book. I think it talks so much sense and I read it from cover to cover like I would do a novel. There are so many recipes I want to try out but first on my list was the Paleo Inside-Out Bread. Would you like the recipe? Here you go: Ingredients: 150g almond … [Read more...]
