My Top 5 Exercise DVDS

I've never been a fan of exercsing infront of people, infact I've never stepped foot inside a gym. I know,  I know, noone will be watching me or even care that I'm there but I can't stop that silly fear that someone will be looking and I'd rather not embarrass myself.

This is why I much prefer to work out in the comfort of my own home, I can do it as and I when I please, I don't need to wait for exercise equipment to become free and best of all it costs me nothing, well except for the cost of the exercise DVDs that I use but when you think what a gym subscription costs then it's a minimal price to pay really.

So today I'm sharing with you all my top 5 favourite exercise DVDs, the ones that I have tried and tested and have actually given me the results that I require.

1. 30 Day Shred by Gillian Michaels

This is my go to DVD whenever I want to get back into fitness and kick start off any sort of weight loss. With three different levels and each level giving you a beginner and an advanced version of the exercises, it certainly leaves you feeling like you've done a decent work out, be prepared to sweat!!

Read With Me #27

Hey there lovely readers, welcome to this weeks Read With Me. This is the perfect time of year to catch up on some reading.

read with me
Whether it be chilling in the garden or relaxing by a pool on your Summer holiday.

I think peace and quiet seems easier to come by as the kids are more preoccupied playing in the sunshine themselves.

My eldest daughter actually enjoys finding a secluded spot away from her sisters to catch up on her ever growing collection of books.

She is coming up with quite a list for her birthday and Christmas, especially with all the library books she keeps reading.

Speaking of library books please do take a look at our recent haul here.

Project 365 2015 Week 27

July and we finally had a few days of Summer weather. It was so nice being outdoors, playing in the garden, time with friends at the park, watching the girls taking part in their school sports day and seein my little brother, really wish he lived nearer to me. Overall I have to say it has been a good week.

Day 179

A walk over in Folkestone and we found this on the outside of one of the buildings.

The Godmother

In 2012 my husband and I were given the privilege of being Godmother and Godfather to our best friend's son. I felt very proud and honoured that we had even been considered.

Three years on and we have just been offered the same great privilege, this time being Godparents to our best friend's daughter.

I am so lucky to have this lovely family in my life, they really are an extension of my own family.

Cauliflower Crisps Recipe

One of my downfalls with my diet has always been crisps. The saying with pringles is true, once you pop you just can't stop. I can never have just one bag and if I open up one of the larger bags lets just say it doesn't last long.

I've been trying lots of healthier alternatives, a good one to reach for is nuts, infact one of my favourite snacks now is the roasted chickpeas that I showed you last year.

However I like to mix it up a little. I'm sure you've seen vegetable crisps being sold in supermarkets, I have eaten carrot crisps, beetroot crisps and even apple crisps so I thought I'd have a go at making my own.

My vegetable of choice, cauliflower.

Now this might not be to everyones taste but trust me, don't knock it til you've tried it. I've spiced these up a little with a touch of smoked paprika and chilli. The end result a crisp and tasty decevingly healthy snack.

In A Dark Dark Wood Book Review

I was recently sent the debut novel from Ruth Ware to read and review. In A Dark Dark Wood is psychological fiction it's best. Someone's getting married. Someone's getting murdered….

in a dark dark wood
Leonora hasn't seen Clare for ten years. Not since Nora walked out of school one day and never went back. Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare's hen do arrives. Is this a chance for Nora to finally put her past behind her? As the champagne corks pop, the secrets begin to flow, and a hen do for an old school friends begins to take a sinister turn…

This book is with out a doubt a thriller. I was hooked from page one. I have to admit I'm surprised this is Ruth's debut novel because it is so well written.

Here we have Nora or as we will come to know her, Lee. She has secrets but doesn't everybody? And when she is suddenly invited to her previous best friends hen do questions immediately arise. Why is she contacting her after all this time? Ten years to be precise. Is it purely about re capturing a long lost friendship or could there be more to it??
