Asda Haul

Now I know, I know that it is still peak summer (someone tell the weather that!) But I'm already excited about Christmas! I love love love it! Plus my birthday is in December, so double win (7th in case you were wondering).

I've been eating a little bit more than I probably should have been these past few months, especially true at that certain time of the month when I could just demolish the contents of the fridge, biscuit cupboard etc etc!
Therefore I am now looking to adopt a little healthier lifestyle and diet. I'm not huge but I would like to be a more comfortable 8/10 rather than my current 10/12.

I popped into asda today in search of some healthy food choices and picked up this little lot.

I picked up some cucumber, radish, jackets, frozen veg, grapes, lactofree yogurts, jelly, Ovaltine, weight watcher malted bread, peaches, Muller light, chicken and bacon. This little lot came to around £20 which I think is a bargain and why I love asda.

Tonight I made chicken with veg and had a lactofree yogurt for afters, and am about to have an Ovaltine and some jelly while I watch BBC ones 'in the club'.

I would love any advice on what other people have done in order to adopt a healthier lifestyle and diet.

My favourite thing...

I don't know about anybody else but unless I have a nice brew in the morning, I can't function properly. Some may say I'm addicted, but they might be right! I get a pounding heache if I don't have my morning cuppa.

I've tried so many teabags in my 24 years of life and my absolute favourite has to be Yorkshire tea! Not only for the amazing taste but also for the cute packaging!

For Yorkshire day (August 1st) they even sent me little card and sticker, and for my birthday they send a card a few teabags! How cute is that?

Are you a tea or coffee person?

What is your favourite brand?

Lady Million

Eau my Gold by Pacco Rabanne smells amazing. I haven't tried the original Lady Million, but was in Superdrug a couple of weeks ago and just picking up a few essential items when I siffied this little beauty! I wasn't intentionally looking for a new purfume but my Marc Jacobs daisy was on its last legs (Rip little daisy) so I was in the market for one! 

Superdrug had an offer on for beautycard holders which gave you a free 500points to spend in store if you bought it (that's £5) so naturally I was paying for it before I knew! 

The smell is fruity with hints of mango (not going to lie I can't smell mango at all) but it does smell lovely and I've had compliments including from Bob (boyfriend) which is a first because he never normally mentions how nice something smells! 

Have you tried Lady Million Eau my Gold?

Asda phone cover

I love my mobile, couldn't be without it. I also love my boyfriend, couldn't be without him. So when I was looking for a new cover for my Samsung to keep it nicely protected I decided to combine my love for both and get a personalised one.

After a quick google search I stumbled across asda which allows you to upload a picture and make your own cover. It was £15 plus p&p or free to collect in store (I'm lazy plus live in the countryside so paid for delivery).

I used a picture that I love of us both and is kind of a joke between us as you can't see his face (hates his photo taken. Sigh)!

                         It makes me smile everytime I look at it.

Have you put your photo on your phone case?

You can buy one from www.asda-photo.co.uk

Maggs London

I have been following Hannah maggs blog and blogs for a while and was really excited when she released some beautiful little make up bags and I just had to have one.

Now they aren't cheap (£20ish) but are handmade and come lovingly wrapped in brown paper, string and with a cute little handwritten note. However I did buy a make up bag for £30 last year which was just a generic factory made one, so it isn't that bad really, when you think of all of the work that has gone into making it.

I chose the bag called "The Little Moments' which has pretty little flowers on and cost £23.96 plus p&p. It is great quality and is lined inside so any make up can easily be wiped off.

                           How cute is the bag and wrapping?

                You can buy these bags from MaggsLondon.co.uk
