Walden Farms vs Choc Shot

This is a very short post because there is no debate in my mind…. Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup kicks Sweet Freedom’s Choc Shot ass.  It isn’t as watery and it has a better and less synthetic chocolate taste. I can’t compare any other flavours because this is the

Avoca-do or don’t?

  According to Slimming World rules, avocados have syns.  10 syns per 100g to be precise.  It seems like a lot. The avocado pear is one of the most nutrient packed fruits around.  It has vitamins B, C, E and K for a start.  It also has a bunch of other things that I can’t remember and…

Armchair Detectives

I break with my catch up for an up to date event, because I have words in my head that I need to use up! Last night The Boy and I ended up watching the new Amanda Knox documentary on Netflix. We have always both been interested true crime type things, and so the odd…

Postcards from Vienna at the Dubai Opera House

As you may have guessed by now, my bestie was in town and despite the drama that bought him here, I wanted him to see the good bits too. There was enough seriousness and that needed a break every now again again. After the giant burger lunch at The Ivy, and an afternoon of insane…

T&Cs 

This week I was approached by a blog site called My Trending Stories (“MTS”). They had apparently seen one of my posts and enjoyed it. The initial approach was so complimentary that I was hugely flattered. Naturally I emailed back and asked for more information. A generic reply email was sent, but I was still…

Facebook Frustrations

I am not good in the mornings. My eyes may be open but it’s not a general indicator that all is well. It just means my eyes have decided that they are rested enough. My mind and body definitely do not agree with this 99% of the time. My way of waking myself up is…

Olympic Sized Objections to the Media

I feel a rant coming on. In case you’ve been living in a cave in the remote mountains of Outer Mongolia, you will know that the Olympics is on.  I have zero interest.  I never have, and unless I am invited to join Prince William and Prince Harry for a day, the likelihood of me…

So-Good? So-Confused. So-Spa!

I decided that last weekend was going to be my treat weekend.  I had some yummy food delivered so I didn’t have to cook.  I had my hair done (which was also essential if you had seen my roots!).  I booked a massage. As it was looking to be a bit of an expensive weekend, I…

Product Placement

Have you ever watched a really popular show and noticed how many brands are visible? Everything from FedEx to Apple. They pay a huge chunk to the tv people (yeah, I have no idea who more than that) and their product is placed somewhere so that you subliminally think of them next time you want…

Post Brexit Bullshit

Remember when there was a social media campaign with the hashtag #walkwithme (or something similar) after Muslims were being targeted after some or other terrorist atrocity that had nothing to do with them?  Well, I think we need to bring that back. #walkwithme if you feel you’re being watched. #walkwithme if you feel threatened or…
