When I was asked to review the new Fitbit Versa I was so excited. Before I had a chance to reply I was texting Stuart and my best mate to tell them. Next I had to decide which colour strap I would like and arrange the delivery. I had a look on the Currys PC World website about the Fitbit Versa and was impressed at how much they could do. They look great and sounded great too. At £199.99 though I wanted to not only see how good they are but if they are worth the money. I have never owned a Fitbit though have had a smartwatch that was a cheaper brand and also a running watch (a few years old now).

I love a bit of music when I am feeling down and thought that over the course of a few weeks I would share with you some songs that may help lift your moods too. Maybe listening to them will just give you a few minutes to yourself to think. Perhaps it will take a little stress away and stop you comfort eating? Or maybe you will just find a little more about me and the sort of music I like. Here is week one, my top five songs that make me feel good and why.

It is a common subject in Slimming World groups so I thought I would share with you my thoughts, suggestions and experiences. Don’t worry there are no pictures and no vivid descriptions so don’t click the x! Everyone has a different metabolism and essentially the way we deal with foods can be very different. If you have ongoing issues it is of course wise to see your doctor for advice. These tips are merely ones to try and help in the meantime and may just be what you need to get you going!

When it has been a hot day and you retreat upstairs for bed there is nothing worse than a hot stuffy room is there? It is nice to feel like your room is light and summery too without being hot and dingy. I thought I would share with you some ideas to make your bedroom feel relaxing and fresh for summer. Bedspreads can make all the difference. They make a difference in appearance and comfort. They can save you getting too hot whilst looking nice too, something nothing else does in the same way. We all know that the more relaxing our bedroom is the more likely we are to sleep well. Waking up feeling refreshed makes me much more productive than waking up feeling like I have hardly slept I don’t know about you?

We all have dreams done we, things we would love to do if money was no object. I am not talking about cars, houses and holidays but more simple things like items and such. I thought I would give you all an insight into my life and what I would love and dream of. Obviously there are things money can’t buy that I would love too but taking those out of it what would I buy tomorrow if I had a bottomless bank card?

This Lasagne is Slimming World Friendly and Syn free (uses healthy extra a choice). It is delicious and loved by Vegetarians as well as meat eaters. It is full of flavour but easy to prepare and then leave in the oven to cook. If you don’t like any of the vegetables included it would be easy to swap them for other vegetables if preferred.

I love family games we can play with Ben so when I was asked to review Lexicon-Go I was keen to see what it would be like. We have a number of board games and similar and Ben loves things like Scrabble that involve words and spelling but often gets frustrated when games last forever. Except monopoly, that lasts forever and he loves it but it drives me crazy. An ideal game for us is one that doesn’t last too long and less emphasis is on the winner than the good moves. I love games that done have too many rules or require too much setting up because lets face it the parents are always left to the boring jobs like putting it away afterwards. We put Lexicon-Go to the test, would it fit what we like? Would we enjoy it? Is it worth the money? Is it well made?

When I was a little girl, like many children I imagined a prince sweeping me off my feet. I imagined living in a big house, my prince buying me clothes shoes and jewellery. Of course as I got older my dreams changed as I am sure many of yours did too and I had ambitions and goals in life, I wanted to earn my own money and wanted to meet a man who made me happy and money was less of an issue. Does everyone go through this? Are there some people who look for wealth in a potential partner? Should everything be 50/50? I have some research conducted by Shepherds Friendly which has some results that surprised me so I thought I would share. Should women expect gifts from their men and them to pay for everything? Do men feel this is expected?

Summer in the UK doesn’t mean guaranteed hot weather or even being able to see the sun sometimes. However, when the temperatures do heat up it can feel like everyone around you becomes super confident, strutting their stuff in shorts and strappy tops. If that’s not your bag, that’s absolutely fine, but there are some ways to help yourself feel confident, in whatever you’re wearing.

When I was approached to share some information with you about Japanese Knotweed I must admit I was clueless. I had never heard of it and guessed it was just a random weed that you would just dig up and pop into the garden waste bin if you came across it. Little did I know it can be an absolute nightmare! I imagine there are others like me that just haven’t heard of it or who have and wouldn’t know what to do with it so I thought I would share with you a bit about it so you are not clueless like I was!
