Jordans Giveaway!

Hello to you, after a very busy 3 days I am back to see how you are all doing?
I've been working in the shop, training clients,doing some fab exercise and eating some yummy food.
I have loads to get through in this post.There is good food, great news, my bargain of the week and a GIVEAWAY! Yep so lets get to it : )


2hrs before my Friday morning Bikram class I ate some carrots and 2 boiled eggs which was perfect fuel then after I had an apple with tahini. It was too close to lunch to have anything else!

For lunch I had a sweet pot and tuna with a little gem lettuce. I'm glad our shop has a microwave especially now the days are getting colder its nice to have a warm lunch : )

I took a piece of my courgette loaf for an afternoon snack which I enjoyed with a cup of mint tea


I had to train a client in Brighton before work at the shop which meant an early start. It was a great day for me and my client as she has lost just over 2 kilos and gone down 3 inches on her waist this past month! This made my day and work in the shop was a breeze!

I had dinner at my sisters in the evening, she made a yummy bowl of eggy brown rice with broccoli, peas and sesame salmon steak. This was so good! We ate and watched X Factor, my kind of Saturday!


I got up early Sunday to try my luck at getting a Glastonbury ticket. While I tried and tried and tried again I ate this delicious bowl of goodness! Coconut, berry and banana smoothie topped with seeds.

OH YEAH!!!!!!!
I didn't actually get through but my friend did and got me one, she actually got through 3 times and got 18 tickets for all of us! She is a glasto fairy god mother! I am already very excited and am looking forward to 2013 more than ever! 

I met my client at the gym mid morning and we had a crazy tough iron pumping session it was great, I left the gym feeling ripped!

I came home and made a protein packed lunch, sardine omelet with cucumber and mushrooms.
I met Dale a little late and we hung out for the evening : )

On to my bargain of the week:

Almond Butter!!!!!!
I saw Laura talking about this on her blog a while ago and it made sense buying this instead of the mini pots that work out way more expensive! This is from My Protein and is a steal at £10.49!

Oh my god this is heaven in a pot! Plus its just almonds no salt no sugar no nothing!

I wasn't around yesterday so I shall share my workout week with you now:

Monday: Gym - full body workout
Tuesday: Bikram
Wednesday: Bikram
Thursday: Fitness Group
Friday: Bikram
Saturday: Rest/walk
Sunday: Gym - super strength workout!

Now for a review and a little something for you..........

I was recently sent some Super Fruity Granola to review

I don't usually eat granola, I have in the past but its not something I would buy now so I thought it would be nice ti try some for a change. These days I choose a smoothie or savoury breakfast over breakfast cereal but I must admit this is rather scrummy. A small serving as a treat once in a while is perfect and with some ice cold rice milk you could actually pass this for a pudding! If you like granola I would definitely recommend giving this go : )

And finally I have this packet of Absolute Nut cereal bars  for one of you lucky readers!

If you would like the chance of slapping your lips round these yummy bars then you need to:

1. Become a follower of Salad and Sequins
2. Tell me below why you want to try them
3. Tweet about the giveaway with @tamzinsparkles in the tweet
4. Leave a comment for each of the above things you do for and extra chance!

Well that's me, massive post complete! My eat cheap October Challenge is going well, I have just made a big batch of soup for dinners over the next few days : )


  1. I love cereal bars for stashing in my handbag or the glove compartment of my car. It means I'm never without a quick, tasty snack and don't have to resort to sugary sweets or chocolate bars. These Jordan nutty ones sound delish so I'd love to give them a try :)

  2. I already follow you on twitter :)

  7. I'm so jealous that you got Glasto tickets, I missed out! Hopefully I'll manage to get some when some are re-released. I love the look of that almond butter, I think I need to invest in a tub! The sunglasses I won arrived today, I love them, thanks very much!

    1. Yay! So glad you like them : )
