The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 40 #SplodzWPC

Something that you might think is a bit tougher this week for our photo challenge… Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 40 Theme: Habitual   I guess after our week of reflection last week I wanted to make you think a little more. This year-long challenge was designed to give us inspiration for photography, I’m

Currently Loving | September 2016

As you will have noticed I have had a few months off the monthly Currently Loving posts here on Splodz Blogz; I was away for three months then had a super busy month at work in August, and September has quite simply flown by. I did think I should start in October but I had

A Night at the Premier Inn Blackpool Beach

Last weekend I headed off on a road trip to Blackpool. I had a 9am appointment to keep on Saturday morning (more on that another day), and with the other side of the country being a three hour drive away, I was very pleased when I was offered somewhere to stay so I didn’t have

Twinings Celebrate 80 Years of English Breakfast Tea

Did you know it is 80 years since English Breakfast Tea was first brewed? Despite drinking an awful lot of the stuff, I had no idea until the other day when I received a rather lovely surprise package from the people at Twinings. And it’s mine – it’s got my name on it! English Breakfast

Review: Special K Multi-Grain Porridge

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day – and we now have a new type of porridge to eat on days when it is cold and damp. Special K have launched an instant multi-grain porridge, available in three flavours, that comes in individual sachets and takes just two-and-a-half minutes

Review: Breakfast Delivery

A few weeks ago, before she went off to see the world (you are following Tara’s travels over on Rise and Shine Paps aren’t you?), Tara gave me a code to try the new breakfasts. I do like a bowl of porridge, and all this cycling is making me very hungry, so naturally I logged into

Road Trip to Norfolk to See the Sea

Next year I will be undertaking one massive road trip – a trip of a life time – riding through some of the most iconic places in America on a Harley Davidson motorbike. I can’t wait. Really. It is going to be such an amazing experience. But it is, of course, possible to have a fantastic

Review: Rachel’s Organic Mango Yogurt

Big pots of yogurt like those by Rachel’s are great for keeping in the fridge to use at breakfast time and for deserts. This is the new Mango flavour, which is absolutely perfect for summer. The mango flavour is utterly gorgeous. The yogurt is smooth and creamy and full of flavour, with bits of mango

Review: Rude Health Breakfasts

The other day on holiday my Dad asked “what is honest food?” He was referring to the claim on the side of the Rude Health Granola box I’d taken with me for breakfast. I said “Honest Food: You can see what you’re eating – there’s nothing else in it.” For Rude Health this is one

Review & Giveaway: New Kelloggs Cereals

A while ago I said you’d be getting three breakfast cereal posts in quick succession. That was a month ago now. Oops. Anyway, here’s the second! Kelloggs have introduced four new cereals with lower sugar to give us a good balanced start to the day. Aimed at children (and considered healthy enough to be advertised

Review: Jordans Crunchy Oat Granola – Raisin & Almond

Thanks to that Jenny Craig trial I did at the back end of last year I have got into a routine of eating breakfast again. Most days, that is; some days I just don’t fancy anything, but most days I’ll have some cereal or porridge or a banana or something like that. I’ve actually been

Weight Watchers: Move More, Sit Less

Our Blog Ambassador challenge this week has been move more, sit less. We were encouraged to stand up more, walk around more and generally exercise more. At the beginning of the week I ordered 30 Day Shred, a workout DVD by Jillian Michaels that I have been told over and over again really gets results.
