Notebook Love

Just thought I would share a little notebook love with you today. Saw these on a recent trip to TK MAXX and loved them all, perfect for blog notes and scheduling... also dare I say the word .. will make lovely CHRISTMAS stocking fillers (yes I know its only August but one can never be too prepared). Just look at the beautiful quotes and wording. 

Not sure why lined bits of paper stuck together with a pretty piece of cardboard pleases me so much but it does. I don't think I have ever owned too many notebooks and will write a list for anything and everything.

Everything pictured was in the price range of £3.99 to £4.99. Think I'll be doing a lot of stationary shopping at TX MAXX in the future.

Whats your stationary weakness?

Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival

Every year I attend Huddersfield's Food and Drink Festival. It lasts 3 days, Friday through to the Sunday and Its a lovely mix local restaurants, farm shops, pubs and confectioners.



This year having a pram made it a little more difficult as with each year it seems to get increasingly popular. But I couldn't go without posting pics of my epic hot dog or the beautiful fudge on offer. No Alcohol was consumed unfortunately due to trying to eat healthy and having a newborn. 



Like I said look at this fudge. Every flavour you could wish for from Bubble Gum to Vodka Redbull. 

I also decided to treat myself to a cheat meal as I have done exceptionally well on my healthy eating programme. I opted for something from the Exotic Meats tent and went with the Exotic Chilli Dog Pork Dog with Buffalo chilli served with mozzarella and tortilla chips. But left the bread.



All the people watching made the little man Hungry too so stopped for a milk break. 


No doubt I will be back again next year to eat more fabulous food and maybe next time I'll get to sample a few alcoholic beverages too!!

Do you have any annual events you go to every year?

Show Beauty Dry Shampoo | Review

When it come to washing my hair I can be a little lazy. I have so much of it that it takes ages to dry with or without a blow dryer so normally have to have it up a few days. 

I like to leave my hair a good 3 or 4 days without washing anyway as it gets so dry if not, so a good dry shampoo can come in handy to give it a little life again. 

Show Beauty owned by Tamara Ecclestone say their Dry Shampoo "maintains an alluring finish that looks and feels beautifully fresh day and night for a volumised look that suits any occasion."

My Show Dry at Show Beauty Leeds | Review

Suffer from limp, flat, lack lustre hair? Long for a bit of bounce and shine? Well have I got a treat in store for you. 

On Saturday I was given the opportunity to go have a blow dry with Chelsea at Show Beauty in Harvey Nichols Leeds, at their new stand alone Show Dry Bar and wow what an experience. 

I was greeted with a friendly smile popped on my gown and sat down ready for the hair pamper Ive been looking forward to since giving birth 10 weeks ago. 

Chelsea explained a little about Show Beauty the brand founded by Tamara Ecclestone and went through my hair type to tailor the blow dry specifically to my needs. 


I have had dry, dull, lifeless hair and although I have lots of it it is very fine so lacks the volume and bounce and looks more flyaway and flat. 

Fight Fit Friday - Lean In 15 Week 3

Since speaking to you on my last Fight Fit Friday I have subscribed to the 90 day plan by the Body Coach Joe Wicks. If you don't know who he is check out his instagram @thebodycoach or his website +TheBodyCoachTV . 

I have been following his instagram all throughout my pregnancy and knew this is something I wanted to do after my C- Section healed.  I wanted to start exercising at around 8 weeks post partum so sent off my before pictures and filled out the long questionnaire at around 6 weeks as the plan takes 7 to 10 days to come through as the weights of food are person specific. 

It cost me a fair bit to do it but its definitely worth it if like me you haven't got time to go to the gym you can do exercise at home and its only a 25 minute HIIT (High intensity interval training) 4 to 5 times a week. The before and after results are just WOW!!

The food is amazing too he gives you plenty of recipes to make but let me warn you there is a lot of food. Im getting use to it now but at first I struggled. 

Im in week 3 now and we do progress pictures at the end 4 weeks 8 weeks and the full 90 days. So if Im feeling brave I may show you in the next few weeks my wobbly jelly belly and the progress so far. 

Here is the delicious food Im getting to eat on this plan.
