The Acai Berry: Part 3

I realise it's been awhile since I've blogged about these fabulous purple pills. The reason for this in all honesty is I haven't been taking them. Some journalist I'd make right? I was so put off by the side effects I experienced in the first week I didn't want to continue taking them.

I decided that if I wanted to stay fit and healthy, the best way for me to do it, is to have a healthier lifestyle. By this I don't mean only munching on salad like I'm some sort of rabbit. I mean making healthier food choices, like not having chicken cottage and a Chinese buffet for lunch every week and drinking more water, eating more fruit and veg. I'm a girl who loves food. I can't eat from the low fat ranges because I love flavour in my food and there is no way I could stop enjoying the odd piece of chocolate. It's very rare that I indulge in the stuff anyway. An old work colleague of mine always use to say "eat little and often" she was also a firm believer in not depriving yourself and having a "balanced" diet. This lady was in her 60s but she looked a good 20-30 years youger!! Say no more right?

As well as eating right it's also important to implement some sort of physical activity in your life. For me that's going to the gym and I've been going 2 or 3 times a week to workout classes; aerobics, pilates and zumba being my faves. I also enjoy the odd hour (or 3) of Michael Jackson The Experience on the wii. That's a definite workout and it's fun too if you play it properly.

By doing the above I have managed to lose almost a stone. I think being in Cyprus also helped. I barely sat down whilst I was there and trust me, they eat HEALTHY!!

In my opinion there's no point in depriving yourself or following fad diets to get fit or lose weight. There's no need to take weight loss aids either.  You need to make changes based on every day living. Ask yourself, is this something I can keep up with once I've reached my goal, because after losing the weight you'll probably want to keep it off. So the best thing to do is start as you mean to go on. Afterall, you can't be on slim fast your whole life!

Be healthy guys x

Yes I keep up with the Kardashians and no I’m not ashamed!!

I’m going to make a bold statement! Are you ready...?
I love Keeping up with the Kardashians!!!
Honestly I do and I’ve found over the years that many people share my healthy obsession with the family but like me, they kind of keep it under wraps. I’ve also found that people who don’t like the Kardashians, think it’s okay to belittle those of us who do but I’m sorry that’s just not kool (see what I did there 😉). 

Why do you love the Kardashians I hear you cry. Well personally I work in a very tense environment and to be honest, before I started my current job 6 years ago, I had never even watched the Kardashians. One of my peers was totally in to Kim K and the rest of the family and because of her, I thought I’d have a little watch and you know what....I’ve never looked back. 
If you’re highly stressed about something or work in an intense environment like myself, sometimes you just need a break and that break can take many forms. Reading, meditating, writing, working out, watching tv; an…

Dining Table Heaven!!

My absolute favourite piece of furniture at the moment is my custom made dining table.

I’ve talked about getting a dining table for about three years and last year I finally got this beauty. Massive thank you to Blacker and Oak who custom made this for me. Check them out on Instagram (link below) and Etsy (search Blacker and Oak). 

Rastamouse - is it really irie man?

How many of you have seen the new CBeebies children's programme Rastamouse?  It features a Jamaican Rastafarian mouse and his crew of 2 (Scratchy and Zooma) aka The Easy Crew.  They solve mysteries in their native Mouseland.  Now when I first saw this I thought it was hilarious. Hearing these characters speaking patois on a children's programme was amazing to me and a sign of how far we had come in this country, accepting and promoting diversity.  At the same time I knew it would only be a matter of time before the complaints came in.  I could just hear hordes of parents saying "but this isn't teaching the children to speak real English", "I don't want my child pretending to be a gangster" (because believe it or not there is a blinged up gangster mouse on the show and he may not be behaving like a gangster but he is dressed as and speaks like one).

It may sound like I don't approve of the show, don't get me wrong I actually like it. The thing…
