Have you ever moved city and found it hard to meet new people? Or just fancied have more on your friends list? Ever thought of speed dating but the idea of letchy men creep you out? Well then I think speed dating is made for you! Some people find it easy to make friends and parties and nights out. However if your a newbie or someone who can be shy then this experience can be rather daunting. Speed mating takes all the discomfort out the situation.
So what is Speed Mating?
Well its what it says on the tin. Described as a mixture of teenage slumber parties, dating shows and bad business meetings, it is the perfect environment to meet people and make friends. The fact is you are all there for one reason and that is to make friends. Some maybe more open than others but deep down your looking for that cinema buddy, the one you can call whose always up for anything or when you just fancy that glass of wine. This is what makes it great.
If you are not all aware yet I am half French! This has some great advantages, like an amazing uncle who is an incredible chef! I say that but he always leaves my aunt to cook when we go round ;). Nethertheless his food LOOKs incredible and last week he got a fair amount of views on his Facebook video making a salad Now he thinks he is a G and made up a YouTube channel. Cos I am a lovely supportive niece, I thought Id give him a section of my blog! He doesn’t know this yet and will probably kill me for it but here goes anyways. New in Fab’s Corner this week is a Crab Salad. Enjoy and if you like please support and subscribe and share. Thanks lovelies!
I have said it before and I will say it again. Time is flying by waaaay too quickly. Please slow down! I say that because maybe I had so much consuming my month and so many challenges to overcome that I didn’t even have one ME day. I must admit April was so much better than March. So it looks like things are on the up. April was such a busy month for me I had my birthday, reconnected with loads of old friends, started a job and moved house. Yeah crazy right. However I am not all settled into my home and my job, and I am super excited for things to come. So Bonjour May.
Due to my circumstances over the past years, I have not been able to treat myself to any nice cosmetics or beauty products. When I got hold of some vouchers that I could spend in various high street stores, I was super excited to go a big spending spree. I was going to opt for Boots, however I needed some new shoes and popped by TK Maxx. Whilst I was there I browsed around the beauty section. I used to get the best perfume deals there, so anted to see what they had on offer. I was so pleasantly surprised by the range of products that were available. Here is my TK Maxx beauty haul.
NIP + FAB SOFTEN COLLECTION
I have wanted to try some Nip + Fab products for like forever. They are supposedly cruelty free and that is something that I have been edging towards more when buying new products. It is whats fair and right, nothing should have to suffer for our beauty. I opted for the soften range, which is enriched with kale. Gentle and nourishing that reinvigorates and hydrates skin. I thought there was nothing better to give my face a new lease of life. I had ran out of face wipes so I picked up their remover pads. I managed to get a tub of 80 for only £5.99 which I think was an absolute steal. I also opted for the clay mask. I love a good face mask so wanted to see what this could do.
Whipping a tasty healthy meal together is not as hard or as daunting as it may seem. There is always countless meal ideas flying around, however many contain some sort of fancy ingredient or piece of equipment. I want something that I can pull out of the fridge and throw together in 30 minutes, but still have flavour! Don’t get me wrong I love a good salad every now and then but I enjoy something that is going to fill me up for the evening. In my kitchen there is an array of spices. It seems to be something that you collect when you go into the adult world. Once you have a small combination of spices, some spices and tasty veg then you can make up my healthy harissa chicken.
One line a day. I made my blog as my little space. My place to get away and share the things I enjoy and love. There are some who have been so brave and utilises this space for something other than themselves. They have been brave enough to share their battles and struggles with mental health in a bid to help others going through similar situations. Kudos to you all guys. Stay strong and keep doing what you are doing.
I, on the other hand have dipped in and out. Its not that I dont want to help others or share my experiences I am just not in that zone yet. Maybe one day I will be, maybe one day I wont. Yet it is #mentalhealthawarenessweek therefore I feel I should share something. I have had my battles, troubles, scars, problems since a young teenager and I have forever been finding new ways to face these issues, along with new coping techniques.
When I embarked on my journey to get healthier and fitter, the most exciting thing is finding and experimenting with new products. I am always looking out for products that can enhance my healthier diet, and make meal times more exciting. So when I discovered the Good Guru I was dead chuffed to find out they use the most quality ingredients, sourcing only natural and raw to make chemical GMO free products. They have a whole host of products whether its a protein boost your after, some breakfast oats, minerals and supplements or natural blends. What ever you journey is there is something to help you along the way. I was sent over a variety of products to create recipes with and enjoy. Oh and enjoy I did!
GOOD GURU GOOD OATS AND BERRIES
I must admit I pushed protein aside. I have never been a huge fan of shakes. Milk makes me gag a little, when they are watered down its gross, and I generally get an artificial taste when gulping down. Yet protein is such a huge part of recovery when working out hard! It is something that your muscles need to recuperate, not only that but there are numerous benefits for your new workout regime. Continue reading →
A couple of years ago, I set off on an adventure to the North of Spain. I stayed in blissful harmony in the top of the mountain in a cute isolate village for 3 weeks. After some beautiful views and miserable days I decided to go and venture to another part of Spain. Another part that had sun, sea and sand. After a bit of research, I stumbled across a seaside city called Torrevieja. Most alike places such as Benidorm and Alicante, yet not as busy and further Sout, meaning HOTTER! Well the thing that attracted me the most was the pink salt lake I must admit. So there I was off. I got my bus tickets and began my 24 hour journey from North to South of Spain.
The buses had a few mishaps and I did nearly miss my transfer with one. Yet they are so cool. With TV screens to surf the web and a whole host of movies and TV shows readily available. Update please megabus! I opted for an Air BnB, then you can get right in the centre. Many of the hotels were a long a strip or not really aesthetically pleasing. This apartment was 10 mins away from the beach and had a balcony for when I wanted to cook at home! I think you get it I recommend this place. Here are 5 reasons why!
Time for another music month and April has been a great month for me music wise. I have discovered so many new songs and artists and have a great playlist for you all. It is a real mix of songs, sharing my roller coaster of emotions! There are some real good tunes out there and they are bringing me into such a summer vibe. Lets give you a rundown.
CHILDISH GAMBINO : REDBONE
I love the chilled funky beat that this track gives off. It very much reminds me of Prince in a strange sorta way. I like how its so different to his early stuff to and you can see his sound evolving.
DRAKE : PASSIONFRUIT//BLEM
There is nothing more to say other than I have rekindled my love for Drake. I love everything he does and he makes me feel happy. End of. Continue reading →
If your reading this then this is a letter to my 18 year old self. I know how you are feeling right now!
Your life has always been a roller coaster ride, and let me tell you now little lady it hasn’t changed, and your ride as just got bigger and bigger. 8 years on you are starting your over, considering the fact that right now you don’t see yourself getting anywhere. Yes you are in a dark abyss with dark thoughts and dark feelings. You have one very special friend that helps you through this. You have a few very special friends. However this one in particular knew you needed help and convinced you to see a doctor and get some serious help. This will be a big move and help shape the rest of your. You gain confidence and happiness and you realise there are things to live for. You can make it through this. Stupidly you messed up with this friend. You allowed someone to make you block them out of your life, along with all your other friends. Why? Because as usual you wore your heart on your sleeve, you thought you had the stability and structure you always craved for in your life. That didn’t happen.
