This week I took a trip to SNOG in Angel. It was amazing. Not only is it pretty healthy but there’s so many choices and it feels like you’re treating yourself! You walk into the shop. It’s nice and clean, and really warm…definitely nice when coming in from outside at the moment! You head towards the counter and suddenly get overwhelmed by the options – there’s so many. If you’ve never been before the person behind the counter kindly explains the menu and recommends what they thinks best – which I think is fab! You have to choose the flavour frozen yoghurt, the toppings and the sauce. It can be as healthy, or as much of a treat as you like. We seemed to go…

Me and my flat mate Claire made berry smoothies as a treat. It tasted amazing after my run, and i felt like I really deserved it, even though it is made with fat free natural yoghurt anyway…but it tastes like such a delicious dessert! Recipe to make two: 200g frozen berries 200g fat free natural yoghurt Milk – we used semi-skimmed this time, but I used skimmed before (the amount depends on how runny you want it) Honey (optional, to add a bit more sweetness) What to do: Put the berries and the yoghurt in a blender and blend. Add milk a bit at a time and keep checking the consistency – keep adding milk until it is runny enough for you liking Give it…

This week I took my first trip to the O2. I’ve lived in London almost a year now, and there’s so much I haven’t done. I have done more since new year, but I still really need to get out and explore more. It was during the afternoon at work this week, and one of my friends wasn’t having the best of days, and to be honest I had been feeling a bit stressed and could do with a good girls evening so I decided we should go out for dinner. Two Options – Carvery or Harvester (Both great home comforts which are a little more rare in london). I found out there was a Harvester in the O2, so after work we jumped on…

Saturday evening played the second part to our adventure day. I did a quick bit of research in the week to find out what was on at the weekend in London, and stumbled across the street feast. Excited by the idea of doing something completely different, I decided this would be a great new experience. Street Feast is in Hawker House near Hoxton. We went to Bethnal Green station and walked from there. It only took about 10 minutes. When we got to the street my iphone maps said the Street Feast was on, I didn’t think we were in the right place, but we saw the Hawker House sign on the side of the building and what looked like bouncers stood on the door (I…

Before Christmas I went to see the second film of the hunger games…it was amazing! I decided I couldn’t wait for the next film so I wanted to turn back into the book worm I used to be and read the book. However, I couldn’t just read the third book. I’d heard the books were so great, that I wanted to read from the beginning. So I started with the first book : My mum and dad bought me the books as part of my Christmas present, and as January was so busy with starting my new job, I didn’t have enough time to read until late January. Even then though, the main time I get to read is on the way to work, and…
