Saturo - Ready to Drink Meal

We all need to start making a huge difference with our food input and wastage. It's all over the television and media that we need to start eating healthier and in reduced quantities. So many people in the world are starving and then on the other side so much food is being wasted. I just can't get my head around the fact that it is the norm that every British household can waste up to £400 of food a year, and as a whole the Brits can waste up to £13 billion pounds worth of food. Now that's an unbelievable amount of food....that's also 7.3million tonnes of food. Disgraceful isn't it. We are supposed to be getting better but somehow it seems to getting worse. Yes we recycle more which is fantastic and the government have helped us by organising new recycling schemes and collecting our recycling to be separated. So I do think as a whole, recycling is so much better in Britain. A lot of countries are reducing plastic use and we have reduced shopping bags, which all goes to help the environment and our planet. So to help us further there are now quite a few companies that supply and produce food supplement drinks that can keep us full and healthy in the day, with very minimal food wastage. With drinks like these there is no cooking, minimal washing up and no food wastage. I've been adding more and more different types of food supplements to my diet and trying to keep my food wastage down. I do enjoy a good protein shake, and I've tried lots of different brands. I like to mix it up and make up my own flavours by adding fruit or other supplements. However making up a protein drink at home has it draw backs. I now have a draw in my kitchen of just protein shake shakers. I used my Kitchen Aid Blender so much, it has now died on me and so I had to buy a new blender. I have to shake up the drinks loads so there are no lumps, because, that is the absolute worst. Some protein powders just don't mix well at all, and others have bits in that you can't get rid of even in a blender. So...whats the best alternative?
Someone making it for you !! Here comes Saturo !!

Isle of Wight Family Getaway

I absolutely love the Isle of Wight. We've been a few times as we have friends that live there, but every time we go, we do something new and I just wanted to give you a few ideas if you travel there.
Firstly, take a car, as it makes exploring so much easier. It doesn't take long to drive around the island and it means you can get to see so much more and plus you get to drive The Military Road which is a fantastic coastal drive along the bottom of the island. It stops at several beaches and has amazing views.
We've always used either Red Funnel or Wightlink ferries to travel over in the car. Tickets can be pre-booked or you can chance it and just turn up and get on the next ferry. (However you can get good deals online beforehand). Both companies are just as good as each other.
We have stayed in Park Resorts - Caravan Parks previously, however this year we stayed at a lovely holiday cottage in Yarmouth which we all fell in love with, and actually, it was completely perfect for us. There are loads of cottages and houses to rent for your stay on the island and I have to say, I found it very difficult picking one. So after a few enquiries, we went for Tap Cottage in Yarmouth.

Lumity Life - Anti-ageing Supplements

Anti-ageing supplements, do they work ? Lumity claim they do. Lumity capsules are supplements that are full of nutrients to help you glow from within.
They have been specially designed by scientist Sara Palmer Hussey PhD, who decided to design a special formulated anti-ageing remedy that is suitable for everyone and will benefit the way the body functions for years and years as well as how it appears.


Life has its ups and downs, which can be stressful. Some people seem to spend their lives working overtime which can cause lack of sleep. Tiredness can then cause a whole load of new problems with our bodies and our skin. I know a lot of people who work work work, they then go to the gym or similar, but although they eat healthily they still feel exhausted. So as much as we don't like to admit it, sometimes we really do need the extra help. Supplements are the perfect way to get all those extra nutrients and vitamins and minerals into our bodies that we use up just by being tired. Our bodies have to work even harder when we are tired to just get through the day without passing out at our desks.

The Comedy Loft - Watford

Do you ever get to the point where you just don't know what to do over the weekend? You've finally got a Saturday free and you just want to go out and have some fun and let your hair down. But what ?
What if you want to go out with a group of friends, but you all want different things and you're really not too sure how to combine them all. Or what if as a parent, you just want to get out and have some Adult time, and only do what adults can do or hear.

Well The Comedy Loft is the perfect venue. This is strictly over 18's only. You can drink, eat and have sore cheeks from laughing so much then you can carry on the night with a disco afterwards. Perfect right ?

They have four around the country, in Birmingham, Reading, Camden and Watford so far. They are only a year old, and are celebrating their First Year Birthday Celebration on the 10th June 2017.

The Gauntlet Games

In just a month I will be completing the Gauntlet Games in Trent Park near London with a few of my best mates. We completed Rough Runner last year which was so much fun and a great excuse to try and attempt a bit of running and strengthening up the muscles.

When I saw The Gauntlet games advertised, I thought it would be perfect for us, as we're up for a laugh and we don't all take the fitness side of it too seriously..... as in, most of don't go to the gym, we like keeping fit and making the most of what fitness we can do, but we're not marathon trainers.

Xero RF Treatment Experience

I wanted to let you know how my Xero Lipo sessions went at the West London Dermatology Centre in Chiswick. I completed a session a week, although it is recommended to have two sessions a week if you can.
Xero Lipo is a non-surgical treatment that will literally burn fat away and the Xero Lipo RF is the skin tightening treatment. I had both treatments as they are for a combined result.

Vita Coco Coconut Milk - Tropical Smoothie #tasteslikenoudder

Woohoo, Vita Coco now sell Coconut Milk alongside their Coconut Water and Coconut Oil. It's very exciting as Vita Coco is really high quality so obviously the milk is going to be one of the best on the market.  I've been using the Oil since I found it at Foodie Festival a couple of years ago and I've always loved the Water. It's definitely one of the nicest coconut waters I've tasted. They also sell them with different flavours so you can mix it up a bit.

Nutribuddy Weightloss Breakfast Kit

I absolutely love my Nutribuddy Sculpting Whey Powder. I have been drinking it since last January when it came out and I've been buying it ever since. It is my go to protein drink and it has helped me loose weight and improve my figure. I highly recommend it to anyone who needs a kick start to a healthier lifestyle. I have mentioned it previously on my blog so I'll add the links to those posts at the bottom. Nutribuddy have become so popular that they have already expanded their products.
So to add to their vanilla and chocolate whey protein shakes, vitamins and hunger fix tablets they now have the Breakfast Kit. Now we all know that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, as it kickstarts your day, wakes you up and gives you plenty of energy to keep you going until lunch time.
