True Hollywood Horror Stories

Anyone who has seen a newspaper, a news website, heard the news on the radio, or seen a tv screen with the news playing will know that there has been a bit of a scandal in Hollywood this week.

Harvey Weinstein, a big name in both tv and movies, has been accused of sexually harassing women who work for him or audition for him.  He admitted this, made a bit of a half-hearted apology and then booked himself in for treatment at some or other clinic.

It got worse.  He was then accused of rape by multiple women.  A charge he vehemently denies apparently.

I am not going to argue the right and wrongs of Continue reading

Wanderlust? Actually, just wondering why.

I honestly don’t know where to start this post.  I know I’ve said that before but this one really has me scratching my head.  I did think about not writing but I decided that I had to.  Someone had to anyway, and that may as well be me.

Before I go any further, all opinions are my own and I have PMS on top of having had a really rubbish week at work.

So, a good friend was back in town and naturally a brunch was organised.  I wasn’t part of the decision making and booking process, but was really pleased to hear that we were heading to Continue reading

Brunch at Coya

Hello everyone!  I’m back… sort of.  I never meant to be away.  It just kind of happened.  I ran out of words again.

But thanks to my friend’s birthday brunch at Coya this weekend, I have plenty!

Coya is the Four Season’s Peruvian offering, and I’ve heard some really good things about it.  I’ve also heard some less than impressive things.  I went very briefly when it first opened for one of their much discussed cocktails it was absolutely Continue reading

3 Day Juice Cleanse

The Boy and I have decided that our cuddly bits are getting a bit too fluffy.  We are constantly falling on and off the diet wagon.  Mostly off to be fair.  It’s very nice being with someone who understands weight issues (he is the 2015 Mr. winner chap for his SW group), but it also means we have someone to dive head first into a chocolate for breakfast type scenario with if we fancy it!

Best breakfast in bed of the year!


Yep.  It was this pic that showed me a) again how well suited to each other we are, and b) that I need to get my weight under control urgently.  By “under control”, I mean start losing rapidly.

As we  laid there watching Happy Valley (just found it and can’t believe Continue reading

London Will NEVER Fall

London-Attacks-Twitter-Meme

I have so many words today that this could be a jumbled mess that I never remember the actual starting point for.  On the plus side it won’t be as bad as it could be as it’s first thing in the morning and so there is no wine involved.

I was sat on my couch last night when a BBC News Alert binged my phone.  Because of the regularity of famous people dying last year, The Boy always asks “who has died this time” when he hears it.  This time no one – yet. Continue reading

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.

You can see I love them by the fact they are emptying, and the Choc Shot isn’t!

I can’t compare any other flavours because this is the Continue reading

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 probably couldn’t pronounce anyway.   Continue reading
