Clara Olivia April surprise bra


How are you today?

You know me I am on the constant ever ending trail for the perfect Plus size bra! I am on the hunt for us small back, big cupped girls. I was contacted by the lovely people at Clara-Olivia. Where we came up with the idea of surprise bra of the month so this is Aprils....

Check out my unboxing here. 


This month I received the fantasie susanna £43 But don't forget
They have also given me a generous 20% off discount code for you to use, Enter Beauty20 at the checkout. This is off the whole site!!! did I mention this give free delivery too. Someone hold me back. 

Review, 
could this be the perfect small back big cupped bra???

I am back to work now and I wear white shirts and am always looking for a bra that is practical and pretty and by gosh does this fit the bill! I like that this is not padded but seems to have built in up lift. It hugs your body really nicely. the cup is a nice size and unlike other bras there is no digging in at the arm pit. 
I would recommend this pretty feminine bra to anyone and have to say it has become on of my favorites. I find i reach for it more often than any other bra in my collection. 

So let me know if you use the discount code and what you bought!

New fun way to up your water in take infruition bottle



Hi everyone, 
How are you today? 

As you know I'm back to fitness and diet. So lately I have noticed I have not been drinking as much water as I normally do. I tend to get busy and forget but I have found a new fun way to make water a bigger part of my day!

 These bottles are awesome This is the glass bottle. I love my water flavored and with this bottle I have tried so many new variations of water. This bottle is £17.99

 This is the inner bit where you add your fruit I love strawberry and lemon. I have used fresh and frozen fruit which both work out amazing.

 The sports one has a different lid to fit in to a more active life and less likely to spill on the go. This one costs £19.99

 easy re-seal able lid make it perfect for biking

 

I would say using this bottle at work has upped my water intake to double what I normally have 
which makes me feel less run down and helps my skin no end. 

I would recommend these to anyone looking to up there water intake and make it healthy and fun. 
great for adding fruit to your diet too. 

Have you tired this?

Why we should all drink Blk water


Hi Everyone, How are you all? 

You know me I have to try the latest health crazy and today its Blk. This is no ordinary water or hydration drink. This is changing the face of re-hydration and give it a new face. who want to drink normal boring tape water next to this little beauty. 

Thanks  to The lovely people at @thefoodsauce sent me a case to give this a try. 

At first I was a bit skeptical as its black and water I mean WHAT. I actually really like this drink its very refreshing and I find after a workout it hydrates me more than a normal glass of water. The taste is very clean yip clean and crisp. TBH there's not much taste although my husband would tell you different. I also gave this out at work and everyone seems to like it after the initial what is that comments. 
I love the bottle design its so minimal and funky. 

What makes this drink so special
What BLK says... 
 blk is what happens when fulvic trace minerals are added to pure water. blk is powerful electrolytes and a high pH. blk is serious hydration. blk is a delicious beverage without any sugar, carbs or calories. blk is here and it will defy your expectations.
This is a great way to pack your body with the extra boost of electrolytes you need after a good work out with the added benefit of Fulvic Mineral deposits. Plus its calorie, carb and sugar free so no guilt at all just goodness for your body. 


I will defo be keeping a few bottles in my biking bag for a boost on the go. 

Have you tried BLK?

Pooch & Mutt dog food review


Hi Everyone, 

How are you all today?

My lovely Doggies Millie and Mylo Got spoiled by the lovely people at Poochandmutt.co.uk
Pooch and mutt contacted me and asked if the dogs would like to try some of there food and as you know my dogs are the way to my heart I was delighted to have them send some product over. 

Pooch&mutt where so helpful asked what our dogs were like and matched them up with different products fit for there requirements. 
Millie
 
Millie has hip dysplasia (mildly) so We have to monitor her weight and never over exercise her. 
As Millie is half Springer spaniel she would be happy to run and run and run so we have to watch she doesn't over do her self.  So she was recommended Move easy complete grain free dog food 
Here what Pooch&Mutt says 

Move Easy’ is a premium grain free, complete dog food perfect for dogs with mobility issues or those that are highly active. Made with Scottish salmon – one of nature’s richest sources of Omega 3 EFAs that are essential for joint well-being, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, green lipped mussel, rosehips, linseed, alfalfa and yucca, all added to support joint health and mobility.
Perfect for Millie. 
Millie Loves loves loves this food. Now I know you are thinking a dog loving food really! But our Millie is a bit weird when it comes to food she only eats when her brother Mylo eats. Before we had Mylo we would put her food out for breakfast and she'd eat it at 3 or 4 pm. she is not food motivated at all. But for this food she will happily eat this any time and her little tails wags like a crazy thing. 
Mylo 
As a Dalmation he suffer with really bad wind (a Datamation trait) Bless my poor wee boy he has a very sensitive stomach and we have to be very careful what we give him.

So he was matched with 

what pooch&Mutt says

Digestion & Wind’ is a premium grain free, complete dog food for dogs that have poor or sensitive digestive systems.
Made with Scottish salmon, sweet potato as a digestion-aiding fibre, parsley as a natural deodoriser, probiotics and prebiotics to support your dog’s sensitive digestion, charcoal which absorbs gasses in the stomach and psyllium which promotes firm stools.

Mylo loved his food and gobbled it down. I know he liked this as he get some almond milk with his breakfast every morning and he waits for it but not with this food he gets stuck in no almond milk needed. In both the food you can smell the salmon. 
I love how much thought pooch&mutt put in to there food. I am of the belief that you are what you eat and I would never feed my dogs a cheap over processed food as I wouldn't do it to my own body so why do it to my dogs. 
Pooch&mutt have the same ideas as me and there food is packed with goodness and no added rubbish. 


 They also sent some Move easy treats these are hand made and both Millie and Mylo enjoyed. Mylo in particular when crazy for these treats there are lots in the tube we have had them a few day and they are going strong and for this house that its awesome.

what pooch&mutt says 
MOVE EASY dog treats are natural, ethical, low-calorie, gluten-free, hand-baked mini-bones that dogs love

 Do You have dogs? have you tired this for them?

Moma Porridge and smoothies


Hi everyone, 

Just wanted to share my newest addition for breakfast on the go food. I am loving Momafoods.co.uk Porridge pots and smoothies. so Handy for breakfast at the desk. 


 
 I loved both of these but the strawberry & Banana one is my all time favorite with only 253 calories this is a healthy thing to grab when rushing for breakfast or lunch. I found these really filled me up too. I found that I didnt want my snack I had with me when I have these. 

 Porridge Yum Yum Yum. I have always loved porridge Its supper filling and is low in calories and tastes amazing what is not to like about this? 

I like the range Moma do Original, golden syrup, Plain & cranberry and raisin. I loved the syrup But I always add sweetness to my porridge. I never really got the people who added salt. Defo not for me. 
Perfect on the go, or at your desk healthy food.

Have you tired these? What do you have on yours
