Payday Treats April 2012

This month, I am trying to reign in the spending a bit (She says). I have a couple of nights out this month, so I am saving my spare money for these.

Saying that, of course the beauty isle sucked me in on payday and I couldn't resist buying a few bits.

They are nspa Melting Cleansing Gel, Hot Cloth Polish and Illuminating Beauty Serum

I haven't seen these products before, and I haven't seen them on any blogs I follow so I am really looking forward to use them. Each product has a number, as to what order to use them in. And I think the packaging is really nice. I will do a review on each product soon, as soon as I can give them a good try.

I paid £5 for each product in asda.

Not bad for reigning it in eh?

Thanks for reading xx

Catch Up!

I have not dropped off the face of the earth! I'm here!

I thought about blogging a lot, but wasn't actually doing it! Story of my life. I would pick things up in Boots and think 'I must blog about this' and not actually get round to doing it! So I thought I'd do a little catch up post and then get my blogging mojo back.

I am still addicted to twitter, so if you want to follow me you can @jo85ste I keep meaning to change it to match my blog. Another thing on the ever-growing 'to do' list.

It has been the Easter Holidays, as you all know. I spent the 2 weeks lazing around every morning and then every afternoon racing around various parks, friends houses, the zoo, the swimming pool, the farm. It was FAB! I can honestly say I LOVE the school holidays, and when my biggest boy goes back to school, I miss him like mad. I also ate far too much chocolate, as you do at Easter :)

At Chester Zoo

This boy keeps me on my toes!

We booked a holiday to Majorca in August, so in an attempt to lose weight so not resemble Mr Blobby on the beach, I joined Weight Watchers. I lost 15 pounds......... OF THE MONEY KIND! And only 2.5lb in weight. The diet really didn't work for me!

I have mentioned earlier in my blog that I started a running programme called 'Couch to 5k'. This programme uses interval training to get you running 5k in 9 weeks. I am now on Week 5 and I am loving it. I have said for years now I have wanted to be a runner, now I feel I am well on my way! I am hoping to join a Race for Life this year and run the whole way. That would be amazing.

Throw in a few fabulous nights out with friends, and I've been a busy girl! I like this new me!
