New year new Movies?

Hi Everyone, 

How are you all? 

I don't get in to the whole New year New me thing! But when I was approached to change the kind of films I watch. I was like finally a new Year New me I can get on board with. I love films and to get the opportunity to watch something new is awesome. I typically like modern RomComs and Action but I have never really got in to the whole classic action film thing, So it was time for some re education.  


The films I chose are 

Westworld
This film is set as two friends a lawyer and business man take a holiday to a futuristic world here your dream of going back in time to your favorite era is a reality but with no danger. The friend choose west world which is the wild west. But the robots which are used in the recreation malfunction. The friends must find there way out of this life threading situation. 
I have never heard of this film. I'm excited to see it. 

Get Carter

A gangster returns home to find his brother murdered he goes on a epic murdering spree to get revenge and find out who killed his brother. starring the amazing Micheal Caine!
sounds good!

GoodFellas

The ultimate gangster movie. The real life rise through the ranks of the mafia by Henry Hill. From under world gangster to police informant to the killing of the godfather. 
I cant wait to watch this/ I haven't seen it to my shame and its a classic. 

Dirty Harry

Everyone know the line "You've got to ask yourself, do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?"
Harry is a cop who don't mind bending the rules to get what he wants a criminal behind bars. When harry's enemy maniacal 'Scorpio Killer' is on the loose its time to track him down using his gun and bring him to justice by any means possible. 
Again I'm embarrassed to say I haven't seen this one either. 

Strangers on a Train

Two strangers have a chance meeting on a train. One a tennis pro, the other a mysterious sycophant. Some how they get tangled in each other problems and agree to a murder exchange getting rid of a problem person in each of there life. 
I went to drama collage how have I never seen this! One of hitchcocks epic films. 

All available to buy here

What would you watch ?

Monthly Faves

Hi Everyone. 

How are you all today? 

Lets talk monthly favorites today? 



My new skin savers from  www.amirose.com

Grace your face

Pore strips
I am a fully qualified facial therapist.  I am always on the hunt for new and up and coming brands and ranges and I love these pore stripes. I used to do these loads when I was younger and for some reason stopped doing them. I actually cleansed then steamed my face before using these. I left the strip on for about 15 minutes and they took out a lot of dirt and blackheads. Leaving my pores clean and tighten. Great product and only £4.50

Oil blotting tissues 
This is actually a new thing to me, yes I'm a make up artist but its just not something I grab. I never use product on my clients I haven't used on my own first and I like to really test products. I have oily skin this winter due to too much mountain biking. I love these. A quick blot and I'm shine free for hours. This is without moving my make up! I will be putting this in my kit the highest recommendation in my book. £2.99

Blemish Blitz Spot Reducer Gel
Saving the best for last. Due to a lot more exercise my skin has broken out more than normal. I was very hesitant when I opened this little pod. The gel has the consistency of jelly but very sticky. You pop this on a spot it drys from a clear jelly to a white patch which you leave on over night. it comes off like pvc glue and your spot is reduced by at least 80%. Instead of a spot lasting day I can get rid of bad ones in two days. This is an amazing product and will be ordering more. Plus it only £3.99 how can something this good be this cheap??

Coffee
This months coffee mention goes to pactcoffee.com. This is actually a subscription service that sends you coffee each month. I signed up for £6.95 for my first month and received my free 
filtering cup. 

I actually picked my coffee and went for a nice light sweet blend. This is delicious and very moreish. My hubby who isn't a coffee fan even said this smells amazing, You can let Pact select a coffee for you but I wanted to pick mine. 
Sweet Treats
Naught but nice treats of this month goes to caprera.com. My goodness this fudge is heaven especially the salted caramel and they where packaged so nicely. The fudge its self is more like tablet to me. Which is a Scottish sweet treat. Which I like more than I like fudge. Tablet is more sweet then fudge and I think this fits the bill. 

This went down a storm in my house. I just checked out the other items that you can order. from meat to cake to salts. This is defo to be kept in mind for that hard to buy for birthday. 

Girlie items
As you know I'm a biker and as a female biker you need to find the right, Ahem girl products.
Especially something for the anti chaff ! What I really like  about in2mate products is its over 99% natural and works with your body, keeping your intimate area clean moisturized and healthy. I really like this and it saved me a lot of  discomfit in the saddle. You can get your hands on the full set Here for £14.95 bargain for the extra miles you can get. 

Whats your faves ?

My Top tips to get a good nights sleep.

Hi Everyone.

How are you all?  I was chatting to my friends and found out they are all finding it hard to get to sleep. I thought I would do my top tips to getting a great and refreshing nights sleep.
  • Stay active! I always get the best sleep after a good biking session or if I have worked out! if you are physically tired your body wants to be asleep to renew. 
  • Drink water. Your body needs to be hydrated. Ever felt starving at bed time. I bet you are thirsty. Top up those fluids during the day!
  • Is your mind to busy? Try some mindfulness? Or relax put on some soothing music and switch that mind off. 
  • Is your bed right for you? This is a common problem. Old mattresses cause bad sleep. Its time to invest in a good quality bed! Have you seen Adjustamatic Orthopaedic Beds? these are amazing for your body especially your spine! check out this information video.


  • What about a nice warm bubble bath with Epson salts! I have said this 1 million time Epson salts are sent from the gods. If I am struggling with sore muscle then I have a long hot soak in a bath with a good helping of Epson salts.
  • Some people like pillow sprays but I have to say they are not for me. I am not a lavender fan and I just cant use them but I have friends who swear by them. 
  • What are you wearing to bed? Is your PJs a bit tight. You want your body to be a comfy as possible so why not treat your self to new PJs. 
  • When was the last time you replaced your pillows. I am a huge believer that this should be done often. I have a new set on my  bed today!
  • The biggest one TURN OFF THE TECHNOLOGY if you are constantly checking Facebook or Twitter your not relaxing! You won't be thankful you stayed up reading it. You will however feel better after a good sleep!
Whats are your Bed time tips?

what does Family mean to me In 2017

Hi Everyone,

Over the festive period family was on my mind and I thought I would talk to you all about my situation. If you have read my blog for a while you will know I don't have contact with My Mother, Father and Sister.  There was a big family fall out and I was on the receiving end. Thanks goodness My Husband was with me at the time or I would completely blame myself. When for the first time in My life all I did was stand up for myself.

I find the festive period very hard. My Facebook feed is full of happy family photos smiling back at me but this is such a false image. There are so many different family's in the world and I feel that we should give credit, where credit is due. I have been so lucky my Husband, and Mother and Father in law are just wonderful people and treat me like the daughter they never had. Growing up for me was hard I always felt over looked and left out. Don't get me wrong I have some wonderful memory's but its hard to see past the bad ones.

A lot of my friends have divorced parents. I also have friends who are single mothers or fathers and they are better parents than some two parent family. 

 Why is there still the traditional image of what a family is? Why does family mean blood family or why is it a man and woman and children. Family come is all shapes and sizes. You don't have to be blood to be a good parent that is for sure. 

 I am part of the new generation where blood to me is not thicker than water. I value my friends more than my "Family" who I have no contact with and to my friend I am fiercely loyal. I would do any thing for them. So in 2017 Family to me means people I love and that is what I am taking into the New Year! I am no longer dwelling on the past and as cliche as it is looking to the future. 

Everyone is different and have different problems.
Who would I turn to if I needed legal help with family matters. For me it would be www.slatergordon.co.uk/family-and-personal-matters. Here is why?


We need to embrace that there are problems in relationships and some times it is better to get legal help than to live unhappy. I am a total people please but sometime you have to do what is right for you. We only live once, So why live unhappy?

Results with Lucy HIIT Harder week 6 Review

Hi Everyone,
 

As you all know I have been getting my ass totally kicked by resultswithlucy.com HIIT Harder program. I have done a few of RWLs programs and I have to say this is my all time favorite. My announcement post

So what do you do? You log in everyday to RWL and you are given your work out and food plan for the day or told to have an all important rest day. I have just completed week 6. I am actually behind in the program as I got a bad chest infection and the doctor ordered me to rest as I have asthma.  So I can't push through with that even when I wanted to. But anyways I'm back in full swing now. I was worried after having two week off, If I would be able to catch up with the work outs but it was no problems at all. The first one back was killer but It was like my body just remembered what i wanted it to do! Bonus. 

Each day is different and I love you get a mix of HIIT, weights and even some dance workouts. The workouts last under an hour and They are very hard and I am sweating from places I didn't know exist but they are fun and what I really like is unlike another Celebrity workout DVD they are so varied.  They are little videos all pieced together to make your workout for the day. None of them are too long and they are all so fun. Plus there is modifications of the really hard moves in case you are not quite there yet. I know I use a few of them. 

It really feels like the trainers and Lucy are there with you and supporting you. I love it when they have a laugh in the video as It feels real. I have to say they are all fab at what they do and create content that motivates you and just pushes you on. 

I was going to put in before and after photos here but If I'm honest I really want the impact of the full program. 

My results 6 weeks in are as follows

Chest - no change
waist- 3 inches
Stomach- 3 inches
Hips -3 inches 
Bum -1 inch
Thighs -2 inches

Total 12 inches off my whole body!

I have not weighted my self as I believe this gives  you a very negative opinion of your self, 

My Results so far speak for them self. If you are looking for a really good way to get in to results with Lucy I would defo go and check out there newly launched class of 2017 program. This is unlike any thing I have even seen. Its more of a lifestyle than a program you either join for 6 month or a year. I would be on this one but I still have 6 weeks of HIIT and you have to join the new program by the end of January. Plus I am doing the next Extreme program next!

Have you done RWL? If you are doing results with Lucy and would like to add me do so on Facebook or twitter!

What I got for christmas


Hi Everyone, 

How are you? 

I love reading and watching what I got for Christmas posts and I thought I would post mine. 
I want to make it clear I was spoiled rotten and I am not bragging. 

If you follow me on Instagram you might just have noticed I got a very very nice gift from my hubby. There is a running joke I have with my hubby about the fact that I have a boardman mountain bike whilst he has many bikes to choose from. Now My boardman has serviced me well but I have wanted an upgrade for ages. Our friend Holt shared a post on Facebook that yt-industries had a cracking deal on there Jeffsy mountain bike, If was reduced from £1699.00 to £1299.00 before shipping and buying the travel box! I will do a full post on my bike but this was my main present Yes I was Spoilt


 I love sanctuary spa product. I got hot sugar scrub, salt scrub and bath foam. I was also given this amazing bomb cosmetics gift set. I love this set and I cant wait to have a bath with it. I am saving it for a special day. Do you do this with gift? 
 A stunning bracelet with my initial and birthstone. Some sausage dog PJ. (if you know me I am obsessed with them). 6 pairs of biking socks and some lovely fluffy ones. 
 Mac nut cracker sweet holiday collection lip kit, britney spears privet show perfume. you know I love Britney perfumes but this is defo my new fave. 
Vikor and Rolf Bonbon this perfume is devine. Just heaven in a bottle.
 yankee candle gift set. I love love love yankee. 
 Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser and eye cream. 
 My new diary is everything. This is one of my favorite photos of last year, Me and my two girls and my favorite little princess went on a day trip to Skye and my friend made it in to my year planner. 
The best mug in the world. as you know I have a Dalmatian I just love this thoughtful gift. 
STARBUCK coffee need I say more. The cutest little shower gel. This is going straight in my travel bag.


                                 
Altura biking gilet. I have wanted one of these for so long. Biking clothing choices can be trickle you just never know what to wear and this will give me the best of both worlds. 




 SKECHERS Keepsakes Leather-Esque boots I get a pair of these every year But I haven't managed to get some yet.So my hubby got me these I have never had this type before and i really like them they seem more waterproof then my normal keepsakes. 
My friend got me this sign it was gifted to me with my buisness name on it and I love it. 
my hubby decided he was funny and changed it to #teamtahnee. As I support Tahnee in mountain biking, 

my lovely mother in law made us this awesome stitched map of the highlands.

 she also gave us this cushion which I just love! 

As you can see I am very fortunate and have been given far to much and I am so thankful for all my gifts. I really feel very special. 

What did you get?

I have most of my Christmas gift already but there is always one person I struggle to find anything for!

I was doing my normal late night online shopping and came across HMV gift guide and If I'm Honest I started shopping for myself. You May or may not know But I LOVE musicals! There is nothing better than a cold wet Sunday sat warm on the couch with the fire on watching a musical. I don't get to do this as often, as I would like but when I am at my mother in laws or she is here, We get to watch one. 

Another little known fact I studied acting and also preformed in lots of theaters. when I was younger.
 I Love DVD's and have a huge collection but I have to say I don't have this one! must see musicals; 10 films. So what films are included  just all the old classic's of course!

 42nd Street (1933), Meet Me in St. Louis (1944), Easter Parade (1948), Annie Get Your Gun (1950), Singin’ in the Rain (1952)
The Band Wagon (1953), Calamity Jane (1953), A Star Is Born (1955), High Society (1956), Gypsy (1962). 
This is a great gift for any theatre goer like me! and is only £29.99.
