Good, better, best!

Fashion trends

Currently sat in bed looking back at my physique and looking back now and looking back at my diet plans (plural) and looking back at my diet plans before.

It’s exhausting, but I wasn’t actually properly looking back at what I had done. It become clear that certain foods were KEY! THE SOLUTION!

Wondering how my hair grew so long during my weight loss and thinking I hadn’t eaten fish… it was the apple cider vinegar and that really gave me a jump start in metabolism and which I used it for purposely.

So much came back to me and I am ready to give it another go for this 6 week health plan I am on, ready for my 3 WEEK TRIP TO ASIA!!!

I know my body and I know I need to revert to my old roots and not the new ones I’ve been put on. I mean they really did help me for the first week easing into my trusty diet. I always start off 1,100 and lower it down. It’s all in stages, good, better and then best and felling my best!

I’m nervous because it’s a challenged and I’m excited because it’s a challenged.

I can’t wait to see the results and there better be results soon! They say it takes 3 weeks for you to notice. 6 weeks for others!

I got till April as my cut off and then be comfortable and maintain my weight until June which is when I leave for Asia!

Exciting times ahead, watch this space…

The price for success is hard work

Since my last post its been nothing but hit after hit, I have been plodding along and getting to tipping point of feeling maximum fustrsations ready to throw in the towel with everything and just buy an elephant and live in the jungle. I’m glad I didn’t though, well, the elephant jungle thing that’s one hell of a runaway plan! I’m glad every time I felt beat down I kept standing up and walking just that bit more to seek a path.

They say when bad things happen, they come in three’s and so here was the trinity of my awful luck:

Got so close in interview process for marketing jobs and did not get offers, a real devastation when you get so far only to be told no and you revised so hard. Lost my job at Coast, my safety net was pulled under neath my feet. Felt stuck and then had to put my gorgeous Missy to sleep, I just felt numb!

I held my hands up, “universe, I’m done you can just work your magic and lets see what happens.” The more I tried to have a grip of everything the more it was slipping out of my grasp.

Loosing P was just tipping point and I just needed to break away from searching and just focus on the present. I needed a job quick so it was just looking for full time work in what ever I found remotely interesting. The unexpected happened… I get a phone call about a job and I’m a full time Marketing Assistant just like that.

Let’s say I was shocked but more shocked at how my mum predicted this sort of thing. Mum believed something would happen in a months time, and that she’d book a flight ticket for me to go to Turkey and something would come up!

Mum does tend to have a telepathic nature and so I will be making her do the lottery soon.

I definitely treat this blog like my diary and this post has taken me extra long to write. One being that I didn’t know how to balance the negative with the positive, I didn’t know how to approach this world-wind subject and to be honest it’s been such a long draining but also fast and an amazing learning process? How could all these two end of the spectrum emotions coexist. But it’s happened.

I’ve been applying since May this year, everyday every half hour checking jobs and checking emails. I swear I had carpal tunnel syndrome! It was agonising the long drawn out waiting for recognition. My summer has been full of lovely distraction but I’ve met some dark times for sure.

Graduation was a lovely time but after receiving my degree I just felt lost and doubted the entire experience. September I’m in a job! For most it takes years with the amount of competition there is and I don’t doubt I will have to face testing times again but it’s how you learn and absorb and deal with it that has made me realise what getting older is all about.

Good things come to those who wait, and patience really is a virtue!

I credit my ability to draw silver linings during everything.

No job – well at least I am even being considered and that I’m so so close to the final result.

Coast – maybe this is the push I need! At least I have my amazing family to help me.

Missy – it was her time and at least she is not in pain!

Your going to doubt the path sometimes but always take a step back when you’ve hit a bump, don’t make drastic decision or moves. Breathe, and take baby steps! Facing things head on like a bull in a china shop will lead to mistakes and more heart ache. Be the turtle not the hare! And the light at the end will always find you.


Eat, prey, loving life. The Bali trip rundown!

Fashion trends, holiday diary, journey

Wherever you go in the world “there’s no place like home” but when you come to Bali this place feels like home. Unfortunately, you can’t uplift your friends and family over there but at least I came home and got everyone putting Bali on their bucket list. Everyone should make the trip because it’s a 1000% worth it! I can’t recommend the “billabong, surfer” vibe haven enough!

I’ll do the quickest and simplest run down, I’ve already taken up your time and you just want to know the bullet points.

So here it goes ……

  • The Seminyak sunset beach, picture perfect, peaceful and sure as Hell “moby – porcelain” vibes yanno like “the beach” film! The bean bags are dotted all across this clean scenic beach front and the waves are so breathtaking. They sure as hell will bring you back to life after zenning out in the bean bags, when you hear the crashing waves, they are a loud reminder that yes, this place is real!

Beach clubs

1. Jungle fish in ubud

2. potato head in Seminyak/kuta

3. azul Seminyak square

4. Omnia beach club ubud

The food in all these places was outstanding!!! Most places in Bali serve vegan food which tasted amazing and not like the vegan food back home. The views were heaven and the entire layout was so chilled with a really good twist of music to get you perked up.


The water is piercing blue with gorgeous tropical fish, colours surrounding you all the time and a graceful turtle swimming by. This place is a must but the island itself is not as “remote” as you would think, shops are granted of course but seemed so hectic and lots of tourist traffic. I was expecting a lot more rural/ forestry?

We did not ride these majestic creatures because we 100% don’t believe in it. We fed and bathed these beauties and they seemed to enjoy it!

This place I am still obsessing over, I’ve never ever tried vegan food quite like this place. I had the kind Big Mac which was out of this world and still don’t shut up about it. Big up Kendall for finding this gem.

The monkey temple ubud

The baby monkeys were adorable…..but the big boys ohhhh no! Slightly terrified, there’s a lot going on in this place but you should definitely make the trip because the guides are there to protect you and belongings, and the babies are just something you don’t want to miss!

When I look back I can’t actually believe we managed to experience all these things. We’ve learnt and experience so much together I am so glad to have spent this time with them and look forward to future with these amazing galys!
