The Acai Berry: Part 2

So as you can imagine I'm expecting some miracle results taking these tablets.  Obviously I know the benefits won't be evident straight away; I know the affects of the miracle berry will take time to show themselves but boy I wasn't expecting the results I got within days.

They claim that The Acai Berry is supposed to give you glowing skin. Hmmmm.....so why am I getting spots?  I know when you're detoxing your body you can expect to get the odd spot or two but considering I drink green or white tea every day, I'm not expecting my detox to be that detoxifying.  Am I being naive here?  Perhaps.

The other side affect I experienced while taken the Berry (not to be confused with the BlackBerry), was constipation.  I was a bit apprehensive to actually write about this, I don't think I need to broadcast my toilet habits but if I'm going to journal my progress on this I have to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but (no pun intended).  I was in complete sh…

Me vs. Me

There’s a constant battle that we face on a daily basis and I’m not talking about the battle we face to wake up in the morning and go to work.  Nor am I talking about the battle to get a seat on the tube or the arguments we have with our partners/parents about who should do the washing up.  I’m not even talking about the battle we have when hunger strikes and our heart says “chocolate” and our mind cries “think of the calories”.  No I’m talking about the personal battle we face with ourselves aka our EGO’S.
I don’t know about you but I am an over thinker; my gosh it is one of the worse traits to have.  I probably shouldn’t even admit to this but I even over think what I should wear to work the next day, to the point where I can’t sleep at night!!  Sad I know.  Anything I am experiencing in life gets over thought.  I over think what I should and shouldn’t do or what I have and haven’t done or what I’ve said or haven’t said.  It’s annoying but my brain is always on over time and I ask my…

Double Standards!!!

Don't you just hate them?  Like, people say one thing, either about themselves or a certain situation but it's the total opposite for them, like it's not ok for you but it's all good for them. 
The term double standard, coined in 1912, refers to any set of principles containing different provisions for one group of people than for another, typically without a good reason for having said difference.  A double standard may take the form of an instance in which certain concepts (often, for example, a word, phrase, social norm, or rule) are perceived as acceptable to be applied by one group of people, but are considered unacceptable or taboo when applied by another group. Taken from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_standard.

I've recently been in a situation where a double standard was applied.  I didn't even realise it at first and the truth is we are all faced with double standards every day in our lives.  For example, people will say you look fine a…

The Acai Berry: Part 1

So there's been a lot of talk in the press recently about the Acai Berry; a super food which grows in South America and is the new weight loss miracle sweeping the world.  Apparently the Acai Berry is packed with antioxidants and high in fibre, reducing your appetite and can also do the following:

1. Increase your metabolic rate helping you to lose weight
2. Slow down the ageing process and help cell recovery
3. Increase energy levels and fight fatigue
4. Give you clear skin and a glowing complexion.

With all of the above combined, the Acai Berry apparently makes the process of losing weight faster and easier without any side effects.

Now I'm not going to lie, I was totally impressed after reading about this super food and the 5 star reviews on it.  I'm trying to eat healthier and lose a little weight and right here in front of me is a natural product I can use that will help me feel good, shed those extra pounds and look great.  So I did my research.

The best form of Aca…

He said I'm so perfect for him but.....

.....there's something missing. He can't tell me what that something is, just that it's missing. Well if that's the case I'm obviously not perfect for you am I? But that doesn't phase me. I may not be perfect for you but I am perfect for somebody else.

Real Talk

There's a saying in life that goes: you live and you learn and it's so true. Well for me anyway. I like to think that I've learned from my mistakes. I learned allsorts from my parents, I learned at school, I learn from friends and I even learn at work but what I don't understand is other people. Why has nobody learned the basics in life, like manners and cleanliness. Let me take you back to the start of my day..........

..........So I'm at the tube station waiting for my train. The train is pulling in to the station and the next thing I know there's a woman pressed right up against me, right by the platform edge, invading my personal space. Why? She's spotted the only free seat in the carriage and she wants it to be hers. Obviously I'm thinking "errr nah", I was here first. What happened to queuing in this country? Anyway she barges me to get on and sit down. Two seconds later a pregnant lady gets on and is looking at her as if to say "mov…

Be Blessed

You know it's so easy to forget in life how truly blessed we are. We never seem to see it. We get taken over by the really simple mundane tasks of day to day life. We wake up, we go to work, we eat, we sleep and then we do it all over again. How many of us can actually say they wake up and think: thank God I'm here another day or thank God I have a job, I can pay my bills and buy what I need or thank God I have food to eat. The answer would be not many of us.

I find that I often have a lot to complain about and these things I complain about are so unimportant. How ungrateful am I? I have so many things to be thankful for. My health, my family, my job, my friends. So many things it's unreal. Yet I don't see it.

Today a member of my family was in a car accident. A really bad one but thankfully they are ok. It made me realise; life is precious and life is short. Instead of spending time moaning about what I don't have, how about appreciating the things I do have, embr…

The Beginning

I love writing.  It's a passion of mine but my problem is I have too many ideas swimming around in my head and as soon as I get a new idea I want to start working on that and my current project gets left behind whilst I start on a new venture.

A friend of mine suggested I start blogging; use this as a way to write continuously.  I use to blog a couple of years ago and I remembered how fun it was.  It was like my own little diary, a release and this is exactly what this new blog is going to be.  A release.

I want to keep this fresh, funky and fun.  Anything goes basically.  So my readers and followers enjoy the Confessions of a Keytarist.

*Special thanks to my girls Kay B Kay, Emz and Shaykhy Baby who encourage me to think positively and achieve my dreams.  Love you girls xxx
