5 Things I'm Loving - February 2015

One of my blogging goals this month was to share a "5 Things I'm Loving Right Now" post its had a slight title change this time because from now on I am hoping to do a 5 Things each month to share some of the things that make me happy during that month and it shouldn't be too hard to do...honest!

So what have I been loving this month? Well lots to be honest, both jobs are still going well and I am loving working with the people at my new job. I have spent time with my girlfriends, sister and even managed to fit in a wedding reception last week which was great fun seeing some old friends and the joy of two people newly married, love a wedding! But there are some things that have stood out that I wanted to share with you lovely people and they are.....

My New Tattoo


A friend of mine, Alexis, has just opened a new tattoo studio in Hastings called Two Snakes Tattoo and it looks amazing so when there was a Valentines offer on I couldn't resist getting a little something done. I chose this little heart spider which is right in the crease of my arm, a little bit of a stinger to get done but I love it! I can't wait to book in for some more work done by Alexis and her co worker Cassandra who is also a great tattoo artist : )

Fancy coming to Hastings and getting something done? Check them both out on Instagram - Alexis & Cassandra 

Crunchy Almond Butter


OMG my clients now me so well, one of them just returned from a week in New York and bought me back this all natural crunchy almond butter and its the bomb! I usually buy smooth but I gotta say the crunchy is sooooo good I am loving this in porridge, on rice cakes with cheese or just off the spoon, its definitely not gonna last long round here. 

Jawbone Up Band


I was lucky enough to have this bought for me last year for my birthday, the first one I got was broken so it had to be changed and I didn't start using it till January so I've had a good try out and really like using it. The Jawbone tracks your steps, exercise, food, and sleep on a daily basis. I don't personally use it to track my food but the other things I track and its great for reminding to take more steps to reach your daily goal and it gives me and insight to how I sleep and I can confirm I need more! I don't know how accurate it is but it gives me a good idea and I love any kind of fitness tracker so its working for me : )

Bombay Mix


I have been finding alternatives to snack on since going sugar free and I am loving some good old bombay mix. My local health food shop sells it made from gram flour so its gluten free and sugar free which is perfect for me. I try not to eat too much as its pretty high in calories but its so addictive! 

Twinings Intensely Buttermint Tea


I love most mint teas but I think I've found my favourite in Twinings Buttermint tea, it tastes exactly like a murray mint without the sugar and calories and I can't get enough of it. I'm definitely going to need to buy two boxes next time as I destroyed this box in a matter of days! 

Questions:

Have tried any of the above?

What have you been loving during February?

  3. I haven't had Bombay mix in so long. I can remember eating it as a kid and thinking that I was cool because it's spicy.

    Love the new tattoo - that's a pretty scary place to get one done! I'd never heard of Twinings Buttermint tea but it sounds so yummy that I'm going to have to try it.
