Finally, a diet that isn’t boring!


Category : Wedding Diet

You’ve heard the dilema. A wedding dress that doesn’t fit and upteen diets that I find impossible to stick to. I know, I know – it gets boring. You see, I never used to have these issues. My soon to be husband and I used to frequent the gym at least 4 times a week and as a result I lost 4 stone and felt great.

Nowadays though, with a full time job, a 2 year old, a house, my freelance work and the blog – spare time, as you can imagine isn’t something I have a lot of. Excuses, excuses I know. But here comes the good part, the really really exciting, I can’t wait to share part.

Diet Chef. Two words, one simple diet.

So, how does Diet Chef work?

Simply put, they send you breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack. They send EVERYTHING, direct to your door and all you need to do is eat it (as directed of course, not in one go and you also get to add in some fruit and veg!).

The diet is unlike any other, all those excuses about not having spare time, being too tired to cook, not being prepared enough, not knowing which foods are best to eat – those excuses are no longer applicable.

The food so far has been fantastic. Well beyond my expectations of “diet” food. Breakfast generally consists of granola and yoghurt or porridge. Lunch, soup (thai chicken curry, pea and ham are my favourites!) and dinner – well for dinner, there is loads of choice. From curries to pastas, from risottos to fish bakes, it really does pack a punch when it comes to flavour and variety.


I’ve been eating the meals for a week now (that’s right, I kept it a secret from you all for a whole week!) and in that time I have lost 5lbs. 5lbs lighter and I can say without a doubt, that I am very eager to carry on. I want to try all the food, I enjoy the food, I enjoy the diet and I am so so happy to have found one that I really can see working with me and my lifestyle.

So, Mr Diet Chef, I raise a glass (only water for the time being of course) – for creating what I see, as the perfect diet for those with a busy lifestyle.

Do Brides Need a Bag on their Wedding Day?


Category : Wedding Accessories

When it comes to our wedding day, I wasn’t sure about whether I would need a bag or not. I’m hoping we wont need money for anything on the day (assuming we are prepared and have paid for everything prior to the day). That said, I like my handbags and with so many adorable little clutch and beaded bags on the high street – my thoughts are, yes I “need” one of them!

Below are a few of my favourite wedding bags – once again, the high street has it all;

Wedding Favours? Do Me A Favour!


Category : Wedding Decorations

For our wedding, we are on a budget.

We probably could cut back and save some more, but I speak for both of us when I say, it’s not what we want. The day in itself is exactly that, a day – hopefully we will only do it the once, but it’s not the big day we are in it for, it’s the marriage. Of course we both want it to have all the trimmings and be the most perfect day it can be, but within reason.

With this in mind, one area we will be pulling back on is wedding favours. I can’t remember a time when I have thought “wow” over a wedding favour and given that they can cost a few quid each, it’s a great way to save a few pennies. Luckily for us, my friend is baking some tablet for the big day (yay for Emma!).

But what other cheap options are there for wedding favours?

  • Any baked good are an easy option, biscuits, cake pops, homemade chocolates and so on
  • Lottery tickets or scratch cards
  • Play wedding favour bingo and have a selection of prizes
  • Only giving to the females (traditional too!) can quite easily cut the favour budget in half
  • Charity pin badgets (feel good factor guaranteed!)
  • Flower seeds (easy to package up and keep in line with your wedding colours)

What other suggestions have you got?
