So, as you know I have been trying out the Paleo diet. While it can be hard to not have tea/bread/biscuits and the like, it does work. I’ve also realised that I actually don’t really enjoy junk food that much now and the same with tea. However, it would be nice if I could eat something considered a ‘clean’ cheat. That is where my problem starts.


Basically all of the fatty foods that we can have are nuts. Chris and his sister get to sit and munch on some kind of healthy bar that they have made from nuts. I can’t. I’m allergic to nuts so finding something nice to munch on that is still paleo as a cheat is hard. I mean I can eat apples and all that but that’s not going to help my craving is it? One thing I did try to make was vegetable crisps. I mean they were fine but they’re not really satisfying. I’ve searched a lot for things I could eat but when I read the ingredients for recipes that say ‘nut free’, they are not nut free. Has anyone any suggestions or recipes that they could share with me?



For the past few months my phone has had a mind of its own, deleting all of my photo’s and music randomly. It sometimes turns itself off and when I finally get it to turn back on, it will have deleted it all so that there are 120 photos left/no music. I’ve given up on even trying to fix it. Instead, I’m thinking of getting a new mobile. I don’t like iPhones, I find them a waste of money and honestly, they’re no good to me since they break so easily as I’m always dropping things. I’ve had a Blackberry and it gave me so many problems as well so I don’t want to go back to one of those. I’m fine with touch screen since my current mobile is a Samsung Galaxy Ace.


Any suggestions on what would be good?



Only a couple more weeks until I start my new job. I’m pretty excited. Since I’ll be working in a school again, I bought a lot of new clothes in England, most of which I could wear in the school. Only when I came back did I see that I would, in fact, be getting a uniform top to wear. Well, there goes my new outfits. At least I still have new clothes to wear. Now that I’m saving though I won’t be buying any more clothes for a long time. I’ve no room left in my wardrobe anyway. Seriously.


Here’s one of my favourite new outfits:

I paired the outfit with my new shoes from Primark – suede pumps with a knotted bow. On a side note, hasn’t my dip dye gotten quite dark? Most of it has been cut out now. Should I redo it?



So, The Luck Uglies giveaway is closed and a winner has been picked. I feel a bit bad that this book didn’t have as much interest but at least there was still some.


Congratulations Diamond from Dee’s reads , you are the winner! Just get in contact with your address so that I can get the book sent to you =]



How do you guys feel about the Kimono trend that’s been going around? At first I didn’t like it but when I was shopping a couple of months ago, I saw one that I just loved. My twin sister on the other hand very much disliked it and tried to tell me not to buy it. Did I listen? Of course not. I was bringing it home no matter what. What I love about it is that it’s just enough to cover my arms in the sun as I burn so easily but it doesn’t make me too warm. The only downside is that our puppy loves the tassles and tries to eat them whenever I wear it. Unfortunately, I only got to wear it a couple of times after buying it because our weather turned cold and rainy again for a few weeks. However, now that the heat is back it’s my favourite thing to wear.

I bought the kimono and the pink top in Quiz for £24.99 and £7.99. Jeans are my usuals and shoes are from Dunnes.





Who likes Transformers? Of course you do, it’s massive robots fighting robots. Do you know what’s even better? Massive robots riding robot dinosaurs into battle. Yup, that’s exactly what happens in Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Chris and I went on a date to see it and we were not disappointed.





I don’t really care for the new human characters though. There’s no way that girl can play a 17 year old. It doesn’t seem convincing at all. Other than that though it’s seriously good. Go watch it.



Only one day left to enter my giveaway. Give it a shot!



Last week I had a date with Anton. I got to fulfill my promise of taking him to see How To Train Your Dragon 2. I picked an early showing so the cinema was empty which was perfect for when you have a child with you. On the way there Anton had a singing and dancing session in his seat to a CD I’d made for him. It included songs from Pokémon, Digimon, Ben 10, Power Rangers, TMNT… a few Disney songs, you get the idea. He was absolutely loving it. He asked for a certain song to be put back on a few times because he loved it so much.


He talked away before the movie started, super excited but impatient asking “why has the movie not started?” over and over. I had to warn him to be quiet when the movie started. He agreed but spoke every now and then in his excitement. I had to stop myself from laughing when he shouted “That’s what I’m talking about!” during a cool scene. Luckily there were other families with small children in there so it wasn’t too bad. I even enjoyed the movie myself. I love Toothless. He’s a cute dragon. When the movie was over, Anton didn’t want to leave. He kept saying he wanted to watch another movie now. I had to actually lift him from his seat and carry him out of the screening room. Dear love him, he thought we could watch lots of movies in one go. However, he did understand and we went back to the car with him doing a wee dance and asking for the Power Rangers song.


Anton had enjoyed himself so much that he fell asleep on the way home. I had to stop my the shopping centre to get my sisters birthday present and he was still asleep by the time we got there. I woke him but he was still half asleep so I ended up carrying him in. Not an easy task when hes over half my height. Together we chose the ‘Quietly’ figure by Willow Tree. I knew she had wanted a figure and this one just seemed to match as it would represent her, Anton and Callum. I put Anton down for two minutes to pay only to turn around and see him sleeping on the floor in the shop! I woke him up and picked him up straight away, a little embarrassed but the employee understood as she was a mother.


After buying the present, I remembered something. Last time I got my sister a present, Anton told her what it was as soon as he got home. Uh oh. I asked him to keep it a secret for Mummys birthday and he said OK. Y’know what? He did just that even when my sister was fishing for information from him. I was so proud =] He seemed pretty proud too going by the little smile on his face. Callum on the other hand…let’s just say I wouldn’t trust him to keep a secret yet. Maybe in about two more years.
