Morning Lovelies! This week has been about getting back into blogging / healthy eating mode, reminiscing about my time in Iceland and keeping warm with home comforts.
Dreaming of food & my next holiday destination
From being in the freezing cold in Iceland (which I loved and features below) it was nice to be home to get back to reality. This did include getting back on the eating healthy bandwagon as this all went out the window since my birthday.
With the need to feel warm due to the weather I was drawn to one of my fave comfort foods: soup…not just any soup but ‘SkinnyLicious’ soup from Glorious, flavoured: Vietnamese Supergreen and it tasted YUMMY. Glorious soups have the added bonus of making me day-dream about my next ‘hotter’ holiday destination for the summer. Why?! the packaging is all centered on a destination and this one made me want to go back to Vietnam OOO the food there is amazing!!! Right must stop day dreaming now, so if you eat one of these tasty treats they will make you holiday day-dream and you will only be consuming 2% fat and under 150 calories. What more could you ask for from a little skinny soup!
Staying on the topic of a health kick the heath gods at Holland & Barrett sent me a dream basket of loveliness filled with everything you need to keep healthy over the next month...healthy me is going to be back with a serious bang! Some of my favourite items I received were:
· Oatly which goes great with smoothies instead of milk
· Bounce energy bars taste yummy and are full of protein (9g per ball).
· Chia seeds: I have never tried these before but Chis seeds full of so much goodness and great to sprinkle on top of my morning yogurt.
· Nakd bars: These snacks are fab, I have been eating these for a while now and they curb my chocolate cravings.
GUILTY I love reality TV and Geordie Shore is one of my all-time favourites maybe it's because my mum is from Newcastle or maybe I secretly want to be them without all the sex on TV banter! Anyway Ex on the Beach is now over (not as exciting as last year mainly due to Megan McKenna not being a crazy Biatch like last time). So head to MTV next Tuesday for season 11 of Geordie Shore as I will be glued to my screen possibly snapchatting away - hint to find me Username: Time2Gossip.
Oh hello YouTube
So I have taken the plunge and finally set up my YouTube channel YEY! Although I made so many faux pas with my first one:
1. The video goes on for a minute extra just with music...oh poo
2. Its’ quite shaky, need to get a steady hand.
3. Do I really sound like that?!? Is my phone voice coming out, I don't sound that posh do I?!? Maybe with more practice I will become more natural…
Anyway thanks for all the YoutTube love, I was a tiny bit scared to launch this channel but all your lovely comments and having over 80 subscribers in the first 12 hours was just an amazing feeling. LOVE YOU ALL oh and here is a cheeky link: www.youtube.com/user/Time2Gossip
So many kisses for Iceland it is one of the most beautiful places I have been to and although I didn't see the northern lights the sky is just incredible 24/7. I want to go back in the summer as it never gets dark, there are photos of people surfing at 3 in the morning when the sky is orange...I MUST GO BACK! I traveled quite a bit of Iceland staying in Vik, The Golden Circle and Reykjavik.
I will be sharing a full post and Vlog about this in a few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled. If you want to check out my latest travel post, links are here:
