No matter how hard I try to eat healthily I always find myself giving up after the first day and plonking myself on the sofa with enough chocolate to feed a small family. It doesn’t matter what incentive I give myself, the lure of a good burger or dessert always gets the better of me. So when So Shape got in touch to see if I fancied trying out their meal replacement shakes I figured I didn’t really have anything to lose and so I found myself embarking on a 28 day challenge to get my butt into gear.
Sometimes you find yourself a few chapters into a new book and you’re still not fully hooked. Blood Sisters was said book. I persevered however and I’m so glad I did because this ended up being one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read all year. High praise indeed.
There are a few ways to this gal’s heart but a good burger is up there in the top 3. When I went to sample the menu at Archies as part of their Free Shake Friday’s promotion (more on that later) I was spoilt for choice. With a menu containing everything from burgers and hotdogs to wraps, wings and waffles picking my dinner was no easy task. In the end though, a good ol’ burger is always gunna come out on top.
Since me and the food afficiondo that is Hungry Harriet discovered we’re both actually 80 inside we seem to have found ourselves in an unofficial book club. When ‘Then She Was Gone’ by Lisa Jewell landed on my desk with promises that I would devour it within a weekend I knew it was time to put the kettle on and not leave the flat for 24 hours…
When I think about Concert Square on a Monday night I tend to think of my student days en route to the Raz and not an evening spent warding of zombies and underwater jellyfish but that’s exactly how you can spend a Monday night at The Boston Pool Loft.
This book had made its way around half of my family before it landed in my lap and when my Mum recommends a book to me I sit up and listen because let’s be honest, when are Mum’s ever wrong?!
Last month I made the oh so exciting move into a new flat and a month later I’m finally settled in. Rented accommodation brings up images of dated decor and tiny bedsits for a lot of people but in actual fact some of the best pads out there are to rent. Although we loved our flat when it was just an empty shell we still wanted to ‘make it our own’ and I’ve been in my element researching and sourcing the ultimate interior items. If you’re moving into rented accommodation or if you already live there here’s how you can make it feel like home.
