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!

Sophie is a complete inspiration! Her situation really resonates with me. I was born 8 weeks premature and I was very lucky as I only had jaundices and was a bit small. She really has shown the world that nothing will stop her and she really can do anything. It does make me think that a lot of us take our health for granted. This Girl is a POWER HOUSE!

Healthy tasty snack! Go Head!

Hi everyone, 

How are you all? 

You may know, if you have been following me a while that I am doing Results with Lucy fitness plan. I am trying to make healthier choices with regards to snack! Enter Go Ahead!. I have always been a fan of these snack. I almost want to say biscuits but that really doesn't fit with each snack.  I Thought I would do a quick  review on these ones that were sent to me. 

Fruity Breaks Strawberry & Apple Approximately 132 calories. 

This one is super tasty. I like that these one are more or a cake than a biscuit. Its a baked outer shell with a nice gooey center. I have to say I prefer the strawberry.  I find this is the perfect thing to have in my pocket when I'm out biking as it give the right amount of sugar boost and carbs to continue on the trail. 

Yogurt Breaks Cherry, Forest fruits and Raspberry. Approximately 142 calories

These have been my go to snakes for as long as I can remember. I actually remember having these on night shift when I worked in the police. These are delish. I love that they are crunchie and the yogurt outer coating really adds that extra some thing that keeps me going back for more! I honestly can pick a favorite. There is not many ranges of products, where I really like each and everyone, yes I am picky. But these are awesome. and 

Crispy slices orange and apple 54 calories per slice.

I must confess, I don't like orange so I didn't eat these but my mother in law did and said they were really nice. I did have the apple ones and these where everything you come to expect from Go Ahead!
great quality, low calories snacks. These are the prefect mind afternoon treat for me. Not to sweet and really hits the spot.

Cookies Bites chocolate and orange, white chocolate and raspberry 99 calories a bag. 

OH MY GOSH theses are heaven! so Much so I checked the calories about four times. 
My hubby stole the orange ones and he loved them. The white chocolate and raspberry ones are just like normal cookies but soooo tasty. this kills my sweet craving dead! I love them. 

which is your favorite?

Annoying Things Woman Have To Deal With!

Hi Everyone, 

Us women has to go through an awful lot, so we absolutely have the right to have a moan about it sometimes. Whether that be to your man, your friends or online! - Let it out girl, you will be preaching to the choir!
Here are some of the most annoying things we have to deal with.

Hair Removal
If men had any idea of how much money we spend on ways to remove our hair - they wouldn't believe us! It is an endless circle of plucking, ripping and shaving. Why do we put ourselves through all of this? Whatever reason - it's a lot of work, and a little appreciation would be nice sometimes, right ladies?

Now not everyone woman wears makeup, and to those who don't - more power to ya girl! But for the women that do, it can get a little tiring. Sure you start off with a new look in your head, so it's fun to play with eyeshadows, etc. But once you get into a routine, and have to do it every single day - that's where we start to lose interest.
If you really feel the need to go through the process every morning, think about trying to focus on different things on different days, for example, Monday - Eyes, Tuesday - Lips, Wednesday - Highlight, etc. That way you do not have to do the whole glamour routine every day, you can put your attention into other things.

Hair once was a nightmare to deal with in the mornings, straighteners, curlers and tons of hairspray to keep everything in place. Fortunately for us, the trend this year was messy updos like quick braids, messy buns, and ponytails. They take 5 minutes to do and look deliberately rushed. So it has been a win-win for us girls this year!

Skinny Is Hot
Okay granted - this does not regard women only, but it's still something that we feel the need to do in order to be ‘perfect.’ “Don't eat that, it will go straight to your thighs!” Are you not sick of hearing that? Maybe you want that extra cookie! Maybe you want it to go to your thighs(!)...
Anyway, there is a lot of pressure on women to keep in shape, otherwise we can't be classed as ‘hot’ anymore. Staying fit, healthy and active is what everyone's priorities should be to leading a healthy life.
And if you are one to have those curves - embrace them! People are surgically enlarging their hips nowadays (which costs more than a damn car!)

Have you ever met a woman that is happy to have her period every month? No way! Yes, we understand as women why need them, not only is it a way to have children, it also flushes out our system so our bodies can start fresh every month. But that doesn't mean that it's enjoyable! The inconvenience, the cramps, the hygiene and the 'hormones' are not fun to deal with.
Fortunately for us, utovlan can be used to delay your period. Maybe you have a romantic weekend planned or a holiday coming up, and you (of course) don't want to be on your period - well now you don't have to suffer!

We are the ones who carry a child within us for 9 months, while the men are out with their friends, having a drink down the pub, and are not getting fatter and fatter and having the urge to pee every 5 minutes! We are super women! And after all of that, we then have to push out a living being from a place that just shouldn't be used to push out a living being! But hey, there isn't a better title in than the world than to be called a Mother.

Women Envy
We can't help it; we see a beautiful woman and we immediately compare them to ourselves. Are they prettier than me? Is she more fashionable in what she’s wearing that what I am in my clothes? Are her boobs better than mine? Should I dye my hair like hers?
We know it's not good - but we do it anyway!
We need to learn to empower each other's beauty instead of being envious of it. As Beyonce once said "Who run the world? -Girls!" We could be such powerful entities to mess with if we all stopped gossiping about each other, and came together as one.

We are all equal. We are all beautiful.

How to stay safe at work

Hi Everyone, 

How are you? 

This might seem like at a bit of a left field post but at this time of year. Staying safe at work becomes a hot topic. You know my back ground is in the Police. I always found that I would end up at least one serious and one fatal incident at work places over the festive period. This can have devastating effects. I now you it may be a running joke in the office. OH No what would health and safety say ? But it is very important and sometimes its the difference between life and death.  So lets take how to stay safe. 

  1. Know your limits. For instance if you can't reach that high shelf. Get a ladder. don't over stretch yourself. No one want a bad back. Or worse a trip to the hospital from a fall from height. 
  2. It is now dark very early, Especially up here in the highlands. If you work outside Please wear Hi-viz. You Need to be seen to be safe! 
  3. As above, it is dark outside this makes going to your car more of a hazard be careful and remain vigilante. 
  4. Watch your feet. Yes it is so easy to have a fall and this can have serious consequence. I have known a few broken wrist and arms. From a silly fall. 
  5. Fire safety. Do you know your company's fire plan? Where is your nearest exit? Who is the fire warden. 
  6. Infection, It is so easy to catch an infection at this time of year! hand sanitizes is a must. use personal protective gear. 
  7. If like me you use hazardous substances, Know your product that 5 minutes reading up on it might just save someones life. always remember to store these safely and securely. 
  8. First aid, Who knows first aid in your company? Do you know first aid? Check your qualification are still in date. 
  9. Check your station. How is your chair are you positioned right? Do you have a sore wrist? why not get a wrist support?  Is your screen angled right for you? When was your last eye test? Always get your eyes checked if you are finding you are getting headaches. 
  10. Mental health, This time of year can be and is hard for some people. You know I have had my own struggles with depression. If you suffer your self get help! If you see someone else is struggling sometimes just a chat can help that person feel 100 times better. We are all human and not everyone like Christmas be respectful. 

It is imperative and law in the UK that all company supply health and safety training to there staff. Check out NEBOSH courses from sheilds.org  Sheilds are the industry leaders in health and safety training. Why would you train with anyone else?
