Healthy Eating

Hello, you wonderful people!

I have decided that one of my new years resolutions is to start eating healthier. I have been researching this for a few days and I have found some tips on how to eat healthier and what you should do on a daily basis.

  1. Eat more fruit and veg.
  2. Have fish at least twice a week – One Oily
  3. Cut down on Saturated Fats and Sugars.
  4. Eat Less Salt.
  5. Drink More Water
  6. Always eat breakfast.
  7. Base Meals on Bread, Potatoes, Pasta, Rice and Noodles.

These are the top tips I have found. I will be trying this in the new year so I will keep you updated on my progress.

Hope I have Helped!

Thank you for reading 🙂

Something A little different!

Today in the news, there is a article about a couple who earn £100,000 a year between them and they say they cannot afford to have a baby.
Typically, a baby is said to cost around £250,000 to bring up from birth until the day they turn eighteen.
The main focus in this story was about the mother who refused to give up the nice things that she had become accustomed to.
Personally, I think this is very very selfish attitude to have when you are having a baby. You are meant to give things up and its okay to not look 100% every day. Society expects this from you.
f you are thinking about having a baby, why wouldn’t you want to go without for your child. The article stated that she wanted this baby for so long but she wasn’t prepared to give up anything for the child.
There are many women out there who are not lucky enough to be able to have a baby naturally and we have people like that who think it’s a god given right to be a parent.
I think before she writes her next article stating how she can’t afford a baby on £100,000 per year. She should think about people who have a baby when they have nothing and still give the baby everything.
People who care for a baby do not care if their hair is a mess, that they don’t look glam, that they have dry sick on their shoulder or the fact that they haven’t had the chance to shower for 3 days. All they care about is caring for the baby to the best of your ability. Baby first, Yourself Second!
Being middle class doesn’t mean anything these days like it used to so why get stuck in a stereotype saying what you should be doing. Selfish!

Disney Mugs/Cups

Disney have been making mugs with their stars on for years. They have everything from Minnie Mouse to Wall-e to Cinderella on a mug. Today, we are going to discuss whether they are practical.
Over the years, I have had many different mugs from the Disney Store and I have to say that I have loved every single one.
The only negative about the mugs that they produce is sometimes the size. They tend to be very big and hold a lot of liquid. This means that there is a lot of pressure on the cup to hold the weight. This means that the handle does have a tendancy to drop off when they has been to much weight too many times.
Everything about the new style of cups is amazing, everything from the design to the size of the cup is great. The new designs are great compared to the ones that they have had.
Please find a link to all the mugs that are listed on the Disney store in the next section.

Foundation

As we all know the beauty industry is one of the biggest in the country. There are many many different brands and in people’s opinions some are better then others.
Over the past few years, I have had many different foundations. Getting many on introductory offers because its a great time to try something new for a reduced price.
However, over the years I have only ever found two different foundations that suit me and that I like. I personally like the matte finish and then add powder on top to set the foundation.
The two favourite foundations that I have are from two different brands rimmel and maybelline.
The first one is Superstay Better Skin by Maybelline. I first used this foundation when I was a teenager and I had quite bad skin. When I started using it, I had bad bad skin within a week it was starting to clear, two weeks my skin was complelely clear. This is my go to foundation when I have bad skin and want to wear make up but do not want to clog my pours. This foundation is normally £9.99 but it is currently on offer in Boots for £8.99.
My other favourite is by Rimmel. Its called match perfection. I find this foundation good because it is not so sticky that when you put powder on, most of the foundation comes off on your brush but not dry so the powder falls off your face. It offers enough to let the powder attached itself to your skin. This foundation is currently £7.99 in Boots. Please find a link in the next section.

Big Supermarkets V’s Aldi

Big Supermarkets VS Aldi.
As I am sure you are all aware there 4 major supermarkets that conduct their business within the United Kingdom. However, in the last couple of years Aldi has taken the market by storm being voted the favourite supermarket in the UK.
Let’s look into this deeper.
All the big supermarkets have kept the same prices for years on the majority of their products. Since, they introduced price match which shows you if your shopping would be cheaper else where. In reality, who looks at that and starts shopping at a new supermarket, not many! Many people do not change their behaviour based on price because they always shop at the same supermarket.
However, Aldi has taken the market by storm recently. They have a store everywhere and they are doing great.
Aldi has somehow managed to make people to change their habits.
I recently went to a major supermarket to get a few things. I brought 5 items and it came to nearly £10. That is an average of nearly £2 an item. Since, I am a creature of habit and I always eat the same things. I went to Aldi the next week. I brought virtually the same products and it came to under£5. Thats an average of £1 an item.
When you shop at a major supermarket, you can spend nearly £100 and have nothing to show for it. However, you can go to Aldi and spend £50 and have loads of food for the whole family.
Aldi do not sell many major brands but they always have another option for you to buy and because of this it is cheaper. Surely, it makes sense to go to Aldi have slightly different products and have a lot of food for the whole family. Instead of going to a major supermarket and having nothing to show for it.

Aldi Shampoo

Where: Aldi
Price: 44p
Verdict:
Recently, I have started to buy the family shampoo and conditioner which is being sold in Aldi. Before this, I had only ever brought big brand names to wash my hair. I fancied trying this brand out because we all know just how expensive the big brands are.
This first time, I used this product I found out it was amazing and just as good as the big brand names.
Personally, I get a lot of the shampoo on my hands and massage it into my hair for a good few minutes. I then wash all the shampoo out of my hair. If you notice sometimes when you first put the shampoo on your hair it does not lather up well. After, I have washed out the first set of shampoo, I always do it again. This time, you will find that you have a good lather and it gets all the products out that is stuck to your hair. I let it dry natuarlly and you will find that your hair is softer then it has ever been.
I have been using this product for months now and I still love it. It can be used by the whole family and because of the size of the bottle it lasts for ages!

Tetley One Cup TeaBags

I have been buying Tetley one cup teabags for many years and I have never had any problems with them what so ever.
They make a decent cup of tea in one cup. It’s quick, easy and simple.
However, recently I have noticed that the tea bags seem to explode in the cup. Many times, this week I have noticed that I have gotten to the end of my cup of tea and I get a mouthful of bitter tea leafs. Which ruins the cup of tea for me.
I have never had this problem before but I am seriously considering switching to a different brand of tea bags if this problems continues to occur.
That said, they are still my favourite tea brand and the one cup option is perfect because they are quick, easy and simple to make. All you do if you want a nie strong cup of tea is leave for 3 to 5 minutes and there you have it – the perfect cuppa.

Free Prints App For Android

Price: Varies
Verdict:
A few months ago, I ordered some free prints from a application that I found on the Google App Store.
I was looking for a photo printing place that was cheapish to get some important photo’s to me printed.
Just like the name suggest, they print your pictures for free and you an do it all from your smartphone. They even sent it straight to your door.
The first pictures that they send you are completly free so you get to try out the service. After, your first 10 picture they charge for post and packaging but they never charge for the actual photo itself. You get 40 photo’s free per month and then you pay after you’ve had that many.
They are high quality prints and they come to your door with a hard back envelope to ensure that they are not bend in travelling. They also put the photo’s in your own evelope inside for a little extra protection. They send them quickly. This is a great christmas present for anyone. These’s photographs can not accidently get deleted from your smart phone.

SuperCurler Mascara By Rimmel

Where: Any Stores that Sells Make-up
Price: £9.99
Verdict:
Normally, when a make company states that their mascara curls your eyelashes better then all the other’s do, we look and think yeah right and carry on using our own mascara.
This mascara has changed it all!
I brought this mascara on a introductory offer when it first came out since I fancied a change.  I like having long eyelashes without to much mascara.
This product is now my go to mascara. As soon, as I used it, I fell in love. It dries so fast that the eyelash stayes exactly in the positon that you used the mascara wand in.
Another plus point of this mascara is that is does not lose volume or looks dull after hours of use. Meaning, you can put it on in the morning and still feel like a Million pounds when you get home 12 hours later.
This is a must in any persons beauty draw. Great for any look that you are trying to master.
