Project 365 2015 Week 5

This has been a busy week filled with birthdays, shopping and more home improvements. Freya turned 7 and I am now one year away from my 30's and contemplating just what I need to get done before the year is done.

The girls continue to do well at school, winning prizes for stranger danger posters and going up in reading levels, couldn't be more proud.

Daddy Hazelden and I seem to have got ourselves a little addiction as we find ourselves visiting The Range and Dunelm Mill far too often (not good for the bank balance!) but the house is slowly coming together with all the little purchases.

Freya's birthday and her best present, a tub of pic n mix lol.

Turning Something Old Into Something New

Moving into a house is an expensive time, especially when there are lots of things that need doing around the house and furniture that needs to be bought. Trying to do things on a budget can prove difficult but there is a way to save the pennies simply by taking your old furniture and transforming it into to something new and shiny.

The latest project in our house was to get Elise's wardrobe painted, making it match in with the rest of her bedroom.

Shaking Up My Wake Up #BreakfastWeek

Did you know it's national breakfast week? Well if you didn't you do now!! To celebrate Nestle Cereals challenged some bloggers to 'Shake Up Their Wake Up'. How you ask? The idea is that the kids and I needed to mix up our favourite Nestle cereals and give the tasty concotion a new name.

Imprify Photo Book Review

I love taking photos and since starting the project 365 project last year the number I take has risen immensely. All the images that I snap are taken on my mobile. The trouble is, is that I am lazy I tend to let the amount of photographs I capture pile up on my phone and then never do anything with them. This is partly because I'm lazy and can't be bothered to upload them all onto the computer to enable me to create things like photobooks online. Then I was asked if I would like to review an Imprify photo book.


Eat Clean Live Well Book Review

This year I have been on a 'healthy' kick, getting myself back into eating well and doing regular exercise. The trouble I have when it comes to eating better foods is that I tend to start gravitating to the same meals over and over, you know salads and this leads on to me eventually getting bored and giving into the temptation of junk food. So when I was asked if I would like to review the Eat Clean Live Well book by Terry Walters, I was hoping this would lend a helping hand on keeping on the right path.

3 Minute Belly Blitz DVD Giveaway

3 minute belly blitz
If you hadn't noticed I've started my new year in a healthy way, eating better and getting my bum off the couch. I've never been confident enough to go to the gym so I always opt for exercise DVDs, my collection is always growing and my latest purchase is Charlotte Crosby's 3 minute belly blitz.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The DVD includes 12 rounds of workouts, each one lasting 3 minutes. There is also a 10 minute extra workout for your abs and an included diet plan to get you off on the right foot.

Now 3 minutes might not sound a lot but I was left sweating after just the warm up. Each round has a beginner and a hard version and you even have the option of choosing which round you'd like to do so you can either do a couple, half or if feeling energised you can do the hole dvd.

My favourite rounds are 5, 7 and 12!! Two weeks of doing it and I am definitely noticing a difference in my figure.
