The Ocean Spray Whole Berry juice is available in two flavours, Ocean Spray Whole Berry Cranberry, and Ocean Spray Whole Berry Cranberry, Raspberry, Blueberry and Strawberry mixed fruit juice blend.

If you follow Slimming World the chances are that often you try to avoid using your healthy b choice for a meal and instead want to use it for a snack. The obvious ideas are cereal bars such as the Hi-Fi bars available at Slimming World groups. There are many other options though so I thought I would share some of mine and Stuart’s favourites with you.

I absolutely love cooking and don’t mind taking the time measuring out different spices. I love hunting out recipes for different meals. Sometimes it would be handy to just have the recipe and appropriate spices all in one place though wouldn’t it? That’s where SpiceNtice* come in with their meal kits, rubs and seasonings.

When I saw the #OreoCookieQuest challenge I thought it looked fun. We were sent a couple of packets of Oreo’s and given a challenge. The challenge is to spend time together as a family whilst eating Oreo’s. Sounds fun doesn’t it! Now you all know me, I could happily sit and munch a whole pack of Oreo biscuits to myself, that certainly wouldn’t be a challenge. However making it more fun than that and only having a couple would be more of a challenge. We had some great ideas and great fun, what did we do?

There are some people who enter a lot of competitions both on and offline and do amazingly well. Have you heard of a lady called Di Coke from the website Superluckyme.

If you follow Slimming World then you are likely to know about the SP plan. It is a short term plan designed to help you lose weight a little quicker than the standard plan. Essentially it is a low carbohydrates plan. Many people follow low carb weight loss plans as it is widely believed and found by many that reducing carbs can help accelerate weight loss. Of course like anything it is all about moderation and being sensible because lets face it if you ate high fat and high sugar but low carb foods the chances of you losing weight are limited. So with this in mind I thought I would share with you some of my favourite low carb swaps for anyone on a low carb weight loss plan or following Slimming World SP.

I was recently sent a lovely Mother’s Day Wentworth puzzle to consider for inclusion in my Mother’s Day gift guide. I had never had a puzzle like this before and I am sure I am not alone in that so decided to write a review for you and share them with you guys. Myself and Ben enjoyed spending the weekend doing it, kind of! It certainly stopped me snacking all weekend as I was busy!

Especially the bathroom! I thought I would chat to a few bloggers and share their top tips with you, and a couple I have too.
