Belmio tu bellezza

It’s no secret your Blonde LOVES a good cup of Joe okay!! 
It’s the peanut butter to my jelly.
The pea’s to my carrots.
The soul to my soul mate.
My cup of happy.
My cup of sanity. 
My cup of heavaaaaan!!! 
So I was esctatic when Belmio gifted me a box of different flavoured pods of heaven! 
I even shared! We used the pods at our office and well let’s just say it perked us ladies up on our coffee (and cheeky slice of cake) breaks! 
I can’t rate this product enough and I’m so grateful for the delightful experience to my taste buds! 
Here’s a bit more info from the coffee gods themselves! And guys, check them out - you know I won’t promote a product I don’t personally enjoy - and you will NOT be disappointed! 



AIMING FOR PERFECTION
Coffee is undeniably a representation of culture, flavour and aromas. The new Belmio range, with its eight exquisite blends, captures all three. Presented in premium aluminium capsules that protect against oxygen, light and moisture, the Belgians, as with their chocolate, know how to take coffee to the next level.

For when only the best is good enough, Belmio delivers quality that can be savoured pod after pod.

THE COFFEE STORY, FROM BEAN TO POD
The Belmio coffee story begins with the very roots of the flavour, in the high-altitude coffee plantations. Here we source what we believe to be the very best Arabica and Robusta beans, with the most unique flavours and the gentlest characters. Next our master roaster subjects every bean to yet another strict selection process, after which he blends them virtuously into sublime, lyrical mélanges. Our coffees are roasted slowly and intensively for a lengthy period, resulting in an extra intense and well-balanced flavour, full body and unique character.

INTENSE FLAVOURS
For the modern coffee drinker only the best is good enough, which is why Belmio selects only the best Arabica and Robusta beans for eight distinctive and rich coffees. Choose from Allegro, Origio, Largo, Risoluto and Intenso, and from the Belmio Lovers Range, Valentina, Seducio and Aphrodicia.

ALUMINIUM COFFEE CAPSULES FOR A PREMIUM TASTE
Belmio use only aluminium capsules, an industry first, because it is the best material available today to protect quality coffee. Aluminium is also the only material that interacts with coffee machines in such a way to consistently produce the best tasting and aromatic coffee.

NESPRESSO COMPATIBLE                   
With the exception of the Expert, Prodigio, Vertuoline and U machines, all Belmio coffee pods are fully compatible with Original Line Nespresso machines.

The pods cost from £11.95 for 30 pods and are available in the UK from www.belmio-cafe.co.uk.

Taking responsibility!


Take responsibility for your life...
Let me say that again for the people in the cheap seats!
TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE.

It's a tough pill to swallow recognising that many of the situations we live in have been created by our thought process and actions because of that thought process.
It's hard to hold your hands up and say yes, that relationship failed because I wasn't present enough, or because I was constantly thinking about my insecurities and fears, manifesting them to become a reality.
Its hard to recognise that you are repeating the same karmic cycles and situations because you haven't learnt the lesson the universe intended you to learn.
We don't like to admit that our financial issues, are actually created by feeling a lack - creating more lack. (Ever wondered why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer?)

I have been guilty, of all of the above.
I have pushed people away from me because I was scared, my fears created distance, my negative feelings about myself vibrated of me and influenced other peoples thinking about me.
Then I blamed those people, for leaving me! Creating even more of a bad vibration!
Even the strongest love can't survive when you don't love yourself and you can't love others the way they deserve, with everything you have, if you don't have it in you.
When you understand that, take responsibility for your role in situations then it allows you to not only feel compassion for the other party involved, but it allows you to forgive them for their position in the situation, let it go and turn your focus to healing and forgiving yourself.

This is where the whoooooole situation starts to shift, in your favour.

Meet, version of you 2.0!!!

This chick (or dude, guys could be reading this) understands she isn't perfect.
Forgives herself for all the mistakes she made when she didn't understand or fully know better.
Starts each day as a clean slate excited about what comes next.
Stays present and focused only on the 200m in front of her.
Takes care of her body and mind - daily - out of SELF LOVE.
Doesn't live by labels, relationship status or society expectations.
Holds ZERO grudges.
Smiles. ALOT.
For no reason.
Knows, that everything she focuses on, from her heart, with a positive manner, will be hers. It may not look the same as she first envisioned it, in the career she originally wanted, or the relationship she was trying to resurrect, you might not make millions, and baby that's okay you just want to live a comfortable life - but you WILL be whole, you will be complete and you WILL attract good things, good situations, good opportunities and good people into your good life!
Good Vibrations bring good vibrations.

Take responsibility, do the work you need to do on yourself.... and watch the rest fall into place.

Hello August!!!

Olaaaaaa my beautifuls!!!!

Happy August!!!! I am so glad to be past July and living in a fresh month!

The Mercury retrograde effected a lot of people in terms of lack of productivity, things going wrong and just generally creating havoc on our lives!

If you swam through July I salute you, but I know for the most of us, it was a pretty tough month! Especially for Gemini's and Virgo's who are ruled by Mercury and anyone closely connected with one of these.

As we go through the next two weeks of the "Retroshade" things could still feel a little iffy, but they are most definitely on the up!

Jupiter is our main dominating planet in August, with it being direct August 11th!
Fortunately for me, I'm a Sagittarius, Jupiter is my ruling planet, and also - the luckiest!

So I'm feeling hopeful for August, I feel like it's going to be a really positive and exciting month!

My focus is very much on getting settled in my new home, and a routine surrounding my fitness, this blog and so on.
I also have a whole sector of new accounts at work to get around, I find I thrive best when my brain is stimulated and I finish my work day feeling proud of what I have accomplished, so I welcome this new challenge with open arms!!
In addition to that I've set myself up a little side gig doing some freelance work, so that will bring me in some extra monies also!!

Mentally, I am really focused on counting my blessings, doing my affirmations and just generally, having a more open heart to what the future holds and just letting things flow!

Life is about 10% what happens and 90% about how you use it to learn and improve yourself to build a stronger foundation for what comes next.

I wish you all the most amazing August!!

Tonns of Love, Hugs & Positive Vibes,

- Blondie, xox

Blonde Meets CBD One! Product Review!

Back in May I went to Bodypower expo, I think it was my 4th year now in a row… if you went also, I know some of you would have been a little bummed out about the turn out this year… it was missing a lot of the big brands – Grenade, Bodybuilding.com, Quest. Gym shark haven’t attended the last 2 years, and probably won’t ever again after opening a competing pop up shop, in the same city, on the same weekend in 2018 … yah.. Anyways! That’s business and the fitness industry always has been highly competitive. 

The beauty of this situation is without some of the larger brands taking all the glory, we got more exposure to and the opportunity to support some of the smaller and up and coming brands.

As you all know, I Blondie, am a sufferer of Anxiety and low mood. This can literally cripple me and my productivity. Then on the flip side when I’m on my A Game – I buzz around at 100mph without sitting down… which often leads to burn out which then leads to increased anxiety and low mood – you know where I’m going with this?

Basically…. I needed a “Blonde chill the eff out” remedy and I’ve needed this for some time now…

So, imagine my intrigue when all of these CBD products started showing up in the fitness market.

The issue you have with products like CBD oil etc. making a massive boom in the market, is there are hundreds of “Fake brands” selling shoddy product. This scared me massively when being approached by CBD brands on social media.

So when I saw the CBD One stand at Bodypower I took the opportunity to stop and meet the guys to find out more about their product. CBD One is owned by Nick & Alex Tofalos who have over 15 years’ experience in the natural health market. Alex explained in enthusiastic details how he and Nick worked so hard to build their professional and trustworthy brand in a product field they really believed in, his knowledge on CBD filled me confidence and led me to wanting to try the product and so he kindly hooked me up with a bottle of their absorb range, which I have to say…. does as I hoped, and chills, a blondie out! I tend to only use it in the evenings when I need to relax after a hard day, one pump into a bottle of water and it really does calm me and helps me to get settled for the night.

Here’s a bit more from them about the product (they do a range of different things but I only ever discuss a product I have personally tried and tested)

“Traditional CBD products – while being extremely popular – are by design oil based and therefore broken down by our liver, leaving some of the product wasted?

People have reported amazing results from using CBD Oils despite this. Imagine if there was a way to increase this effectiveness?

The Absorb range has been designed to deliver a CBD product which can maximise the potential of the Cannabinoids and Terpenes we spend so much time and effort extracting.

CBD one’s two Absorb blends offer a unique product which offers up to 100% absorption in the body. This is, in effect, up to 10 times more effective than an equivalent Oil based product.

Ultra+ has a CBD content of approximately 400mg with 50 servings – offering circa 8mg of CBD per dose.
• Water based formula for increased absorption
• Up to 10x more effective than Oil based products
• Fantastic natural earthy, spicy taste
• Can be added to your favourite hot or cold drinks
• Great value for money
• Inhalable – can be used in nebulizer
• Whole Plant Cannabis Extract
• Contains Curcumin for extra boost
• Rich Terpene Profile
• Expertly Extracted
• Laboratory Tested
• 10ml bottle with pump – 50 servings

Confessions of a Blonde....

Whaddup my beautifuls! Long time no inspo to visit this writing space... forgive me?
I’m writing today to err.. ok this is a confession post so I’ll start with the fact I’m only writing it because I wanted to test out the blogging app on my phone.. aheh! So this post comes to you.. from the treadmill! Legit I’m power walking at 6.5kph as I type. 
Ok confessions continued. 
  • I have 2 life paces.... 100 miles an hour or 1 mile per hour. June was the latter. I just couldn’t get into it, mentally or physically.
  • Hunni I’ve been trying to find a middle ground for like 4 years now. 
  • I waste days too. Weeks. I wasted June. Fact. 
  • I preach self love, then have days where I critic every single detail about myself. EVERY.SINGLE.DETAIL. 
  • Legit, there’s no insult you can throw at me that I’ve not believed about myself at some point - try me!
  • I used to think once I’d mastered self love.. that I’d just wake up every single day in a cloud of grateful bliss... I was wrong, in fact some days I have to master a mindshift “woman why don’t you have your shit perfectly together” to .... “hey beautiful, well done for getting out of bed. What’s the next small step we can take?”  
  • I don’t post every single meal I eat on social media. I definitely didn’t post the fish & chip/Krispy Kreme/ peanut m&ms binge I had while preaching yolo on Saturday. Oops.... 
  • I’m not doing what I planned to be doing at this stage in my life. My excuse is that “real life happened” but it’s exactly that: an excuse. 
  • I haven’t given up on myself, or my goals. & there is no ‘Yet’ in that sentence.
  • I’m really proud of myself for freestyling this post from the treadmill in 20 minutes....

Gratitude Diaries 27.05.19

Good afternoon my beautiful readers!
What better way to start a gratitude blog post than thanking all of you for making this blog such a great place for me to visit after 4 years! I can hardly believe I’ve been on this journey for 4 whole years now! Crazy how quickly time flies and yet so many things have changed. I have changed and grown so much as a woman in the last year, yet alone the last 4! 
I’ve loved and lost, loved and found! 
Learnt and tried. Learnt and failed. Learnt and succeeded! 
I keep 2 journals, one is a law of attraction journal - bullet journaling, recording my daily activities and plans, recording goals, monitoring them through out the month and then summarising at the end of the month. 
The second journal records 3 things I am grateful for, 3 amazing things that are going to happen that day, 3 positive affirmations, 3 amazing things that happened that day (goals acheived etc) and then 3 things I can improve on for the following day/s. 
I have been doing these journals for 5 months now consistently, what I have found is the more gratitude I express, the days I go into my day with good intentions and positive affirmations are the days I succeed the most. It’s mindset control, it’s me, taking control of my own mind, and in turn determining what is going to become of my day! 
So I thought I would start sharing on here, not daily but often, the things I am grateful for in my current state of life. I hope this can somewhat resonate with you and trigger you to see things you are grateful for. 
Sometimes we spend so much of our energy thinking forward, or looking back that we don’t take the time to be grateful for what is now. 
Here are 3 things I am grateful for right this moment; 
  • The Amy Landino YouTube video I watched this morning about the benefits of reading more regularly. Did you know that reading 25-30 minutes a day can extend your lifespan by upto 2 years? No me either. This YouTube video led me to picking up the book “the secret” a book I’ve been reading on and off for a couple of weeks now. I ended up on the chapter about gratitude, which then inspired me to write this post. 
  • My second thing I am grateful for today is the freedom of my own time to be able to do these things. Quite often I live my life at 100 miles an hour - I actually love living life this way, but on occasion I do cherish the odd downtime day. Today I went to the gym to do my morning cardio, popped to Morrison’s to buy ingredients for breakfast, then nipped over to Costa coffee to pick up my favourite brew; a coconut latte with sugar free caramel syrup! Literally, it soothes my soul. I was back home, making a delicious breakfast and showered by 11am. Led down to watch some YouTube/read with a cup of tea and now I’m led, hair still wet - typing this up. 
  • The third thing I’m extremely grateful currently, is my new adapted mindset to life. I struggled deeply a lot last year, and the very beginning of this year with depression and extreme anxiety. I would lock myself away for hours and just sob, or do nothing just laying there waiting for the hours to pass me by. Eventually, I got sick of my own shit, and I started taking action to feel better. Therapy, journaling, audio books, podcasts. Whatever it took. The more time i invested in myself, the more these things started becoming habits. Healthy habits, replacing the negative habits that were shitting all over my shine. The more I acheieved these positive habits, the prouder I became of who I was becoming. The better I felt about myself, the brighter my vibe became. The brighter my vibe became the more good, happy, positive things I attracted into my life. The best bit of coming up from the darkest place and seeing my life change before me, is that I really appreciated those positive changes. I was/am grateful for them. 
What are you grateful for today?

My Biggest Flaw


I've never proclaimed to be perfect... Okay maybe I have but who would have believed me anyway? 
I have many flaws and bad habits just like everyone else. But my biggest the flaw, the one that gets me into the most trouble in every area of my life... relationships, friendships, work... TIMEKEEPING!!
I am that girl who is still sat in the bath tub while my friends are waiting at the dinner table, I reserved. 
Least I used to be, this post is all about the things I am doing to improve this shituation! 
  • 5,4,3,2,1 - I'm up. I've been using Mel Robbins 5 second rule to get myself out of bed as soon as that alarm goes off. 
  • Morning routine - Water, vitamins, coffee - GET IN THE SHOWER
  • Do not touch my phone... seriously the minute I start checking the gram, replying to DM's, replying to Whatsapp, it's game over. I now have a rule that unless it's an emergency which it never is at 6am - it can wait until after I am dressed and ready for work. 
  • Prepping my work clothes the night before, making sure my gym attire is ready to slip into when I finish work. 
  • Making sure all of my food is prepped and packed and ready to transfer from the fridge to my lunch bag, again I do this the night before. 
  • Getting to work early, to build up flexi time. I'm very fortunate that I have flexi hours at work, I can build myself up to 5 extra days holiday by working overtime during the week. Because I only get 45 minutes lunch break (30 of which I legally have to take) and I want to get to the gym straight after work - arriving at the office 15-30 minutes early is my best option for building up flexi hours. So far, I've build myself an extra 1.5 days annual leave!!
What are your little quirks that you could do with putting a little focus on correcting?

Summer Shredding 2019

You will have noticed alot of my most recent posts have been revolving mainly around food. This isn't much new... 80% of my life revolves around food in one way or another. Within 10 minutes of finishing one meal, I've usually planned out another.
I am a massive foodie... and I have one hell of a appetite for a small person. 
So any way the main reason I've been trying to get a little creative with my foods is that I wanted to drop a little bit of body fat for the summer months. I've been really really inconsistent for like 2 years now. I've been distracted with life which happens to all of us, but with me I've let myself get so out of balance. So today as a way of 'keeping myself accountable' I am going to write down my Goals for the remaining of spring/summer 2019. 

- Intermittent fasting, I've actually started this, proabably around 3 weeks in - intermittent fasting is just time slotting when you eat. I aim to eat all my meals between 12pm and 8pm. The thing I have found with intermittent fasting and the main reason it works for me is discipline. If I have just fasted for 16 hours - at this point I don't see the point in ruining that with a big greasy food choice. 
- Training, I want to be training 4-5 days a week minimum - weight lifting, with a goal of 10k steps every day. This may mean I go to the gym 7 days a week because it's raining out and I need to get my steps in or it may mean 2-3 days of the week I go for a long outdoors walk. I'm going to be flexible with myself in how I do it, but prioritise getting it done! 
- Ample sleep.... I've gotten to an age now where I simple don't function very well on less than 6 hours sleep. Between 6 & 8 hours sleep is the goal at the moment I seem to feel my best around 6.5 hours sleep. Seem's to be my sweet spot. 
- Cutting down caffeine and guzzling the h2o! Water is one of my biggest obstacles. I friggen hate drinking water, it's so easy to forget or replace with coffee.. I've started mixing BCAA into my water bottle, not because I particurly need the extra aminos all the time but just because it tastes great...and something that tastes great encourages me to keep drinking it! 

And then the biggest challenge - mind over matter. I need to commit, here and now to remaining focused on my physical goals over the next 3 months, NO MATTER WHAT personal challenges, dramas or confusing situations come up. No matter how settled or unsettled I am in my personal life. I have gotten into some really bad habits of just not showing up for myself when my mind is elsewhere and that just has to stop. 
I need to see this journey as an act of self love. Something I am doing for me.
Self sabotaging my self love, is simply not an option.

Simple Breakfast Egg Cups!

The following recipe is a great one for prepping ahead a breakfast or even just a snack. I like to make up a batch of these when I'm shredding as a low carb, high protein food with some good sources of omega!

Makes 12:
12 whole organic free range eggs
1 red bell pepper diced
1 white onion finely diced
1 large handful of spinach
1tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic granules

First off, these do tend to stick to the pan, so you want to grease your muffin tray well.
Preheat the oven to about 190 celcius
In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs garlic granules and black pepper.
Add some ripped up spinach, red pepper and onion to each of the egg muffin holes then pour your egg mixture over the top.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the egg mixture has set.

To lower the calories on this further, you could do 6 whole eggs and 200ml of egg whites instead.



Fat Lil's Review!


There are two things I love more than anything, time with my loved ones, and a good ole cheat meal!!
So recently when I discovered Fat Lil’s, a cute little retro eatery in Witney, Oxfordshire – It was love at first sight!


Literally everything about this place is bang on the money (and worth every penny you spend when in there) from the rock music playing loud enough to set a vibe, but not too loud that you can’t hear yourself speak. To the cosy seating arrangements and atmosphere from the staff who are clearly treated well by management.
I think you can tell a lot about how a place is managed from the vibe the staff serving give.
Now, about their chicken wings – safe to say.. I ordered 2 portions… as a starter! Also on our table we had ciabatta with olives, basalmic vinegar and light olive oil.
My main was a L.A Street dog – a classic hot dog sausage (except I swear it tasted better than any other hot dog sausage I had ever tried) wrapped in streaky bacon, jalapenos, diced peppers, grilled onions, ketchup and mustard… oh em gee… it was massive!! This amazing dog came served with a side of  fries and homemade coleslaw.
Safe to say, I am a girl with a big appetite and I was defeated… maybe it was something to do with the 2 starters… yeah okay fine 3, I tried some of the bread too. The bill for 2 people, a little person, including drinks came to under 50 squibbles.
VALUE FOR MONEY!!
So, if you’re in the Witney area , and in need of an epic cheat meal I could not recommend Fat Lil’s more!

Coconut Vanilla Protein Cheese Cake Recipe!


I’ve been wanting to work on my protein based desserts for a while now… I am a sucker for a sweet treat… but I also want something that is a little lower in calories… so you know, I can have a bigger slice…
The following cheese cake is made with Time4Nutrition coconut vanilla whey. You can make it with any whey  you like but it has to be an easy to blend protein. I love Time4Nutrition for their smooth creamy easy blend yumminess.
You will need:
5 low fat digestive biscuits
680g low fat cream cheese
250ml of egg whites
250ml fat free greek yoghurt
45g Stevia
1 Scoop of protein powder
Method:
Preheat your oven to 175 celcius and  spray a medium sized cake tin (I use the ones with the lose bottom to get the cheese cake out in one piece easily at the end)
In a food processor crush the biscuits into crumbs and layer the bottom of the baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, egg whites, greek yoghurt, stevia and protein powder.
Whisk until smooth, I wont lie, this bit is easier with an electric whisk… I didn’t have one to hand so a good arm workout did the trick.
Layer your cheese cake mixture on top of the biscuit crumbs and pop in the oven.
Bake for 35 minutes or until the edges start to brown and crack, and the middle feels firm to touch (may still wobble a tiny bit as long as it’s not looking liquidy)
Remove from the oven to cool, then put into the fridge to finish setting.
In about 2 hours, you’ll have yourself a delicious, healthier dessert option! Enjoy!!

Mirror Talk - Power Thoughts


There are days when I wake up feeling like a total badass bitch with my shit together.

And then there are days when I need a lil pep talk… a little looking in the mirror and telling myself what’s what.

These are the days, I need my power thoughts:

“It’s just a thought, and thoughts can be changed” – my number one boomer towards anxiety.
“What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.”
“Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness”
“The only time you fail, is when you fall down and stay down”.
“Doing your best at this moment, puts you in the best place for the next moment”
“I am not limited by any past thinking”
“I am willing to change and grow”
“I forgive everyone in my past for all perceived wrongs, and I release them with love.”
“You absolutely can do it, in fact you always could”
“Now, is your time”

Hinching Myself Happy!

I’ve fallen in love with another woman!!!

Okay not quite, but I am in total admiration of the domestic goddess that is Mrs Hinch!

 A small town warm hearted woman from Essex has over the last 2 years taken over the gram with hundreds of cleaning tips and home décor idea’s. She makes rubber gloves look glamerous and finding a bottle of Zoflora exciting.

In  a world of women going over the top to make their appearances ‘something else’ it’s been so refreshing to stumble across Mrs Hinch and her humble approach to life, peace and home.

Our home is our zen, our peaceful place, our safe place to snuggle away in and be away from the rest of the world and Mrs Hinch has taught me how to make the most out of what I have in terms of a home, make old things shiny and beautiful again & like me, Sophie is a total sucker for a bargain!!!

Who needs a designer clock on the wall when you can create one for £7.99 on ebay!!!!

To me having my home in order, is a part of ‘having my shit together’ so…. If you want to learn some of the cleaning tips I’ve been lucky to stumble across I highly recommend you check out “Hinch yourself happy” - Not only will you not be able to put it down - You’ll laugh, you’ll update your Spotify playlist and you’ll be hinching away at your home by the end of it!

Honestly, I’ve got all the women in my office, hooked on hinching! Lucky husbands with happy wives living happy lives!

Feta Stuffed Meatballs!

I’ve been really into my cooking lately and loving trying out some new recipes…. The fact I am supposed to be sort of shredding… is by the by! Here’s a great meatball recipe that goes nicely with a tomato based sauce, some wholewheat linguine… and if you’re me… bread… (there’s always room for bread on my desk!)

What you will need:
450g lean steak mince
0.5 white onion finely diced
3 spring onions finely diced
50g feta cheese diced into small cubes
1 egg
1 tbsp. mustard
3 tbsp. tomato puree
1 tbsp. clear honey
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. black pepper
0.25 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. Paprika
1 tsp. cider vinegar
1 tbsp. coriander
Method:

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celcius, and line a baking tray.

In a large bowl mix together all of the ingredients well.

Roll into 2 inch round balls with your hand (yah it’s a little messy but totally worth it)

Place the meatballs a few centimetres apart from each other and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Allow them to cool and any juices to settle for a few minutes, and then serve!
