Summer diaries: Week Five & Six ๐ŸŒž

Here is the final instalment in my ‘Summer diaries’ blog series ๐ŸŒž

Enjoy!

Monday 27th August 2018

As its a bank holiday me and Timmy went out to Woodbridge.

We went out for lunch and then had a lovely walk through the shops in town, sat in one of the parks to start planning our next holiday and walked back to the car, along the river.

It was a lovely chilled out bank holiday and it was lovely to spend sometime together.

Tuesday 28th August 2018

I spent my Tuesday in the library as it was my last day volunteering for the Summer Reading challenge.

I’ve really enjoyed helping out again, this was my 6th year.

I LOVE reading and I hope by volunteering I’ve helped some kiddies carry on their love of reading too.

Friday 31st August 2018

Today was an awesome day, it was mine and Evie-Mae’s Auntie & Niece day โ™ก

We had lots of fun together.

Our first stop was the park to eat our lunch…

Our second stop was the library to have a look at some books. We had a lovely time exploring the library and we read a few books too.

In the night garden was her favourite.

Our third and final stop was soft play! She loved going in and out of the soft tunnels, sitting in the ball pit and going down the slide together.

I can’t wait for our next day out together !!

In the evening I went to Chiquitos for dinner with some of my lovely work friends.

It was great to have a catch up, accompanied by some yummy food.

Saturday 1st September 2018

Today I went into town for a spot of retail therapy. I love shopping and no matter what my husband says, it’s a legitimate hobby!! Haha.

Whilst I was in town I went to Debenhams to see my friend Demi. Demi works for Dior and she wanted me to try out some of Diors new Autumn collection.

If you want to see what I thought of all the beautiful products you can check out my blog post here .

Sunday 2nd September 2018

Today I went to my first football match of the new season. It was a very important one for my local team as we were playing our local East Anglian rivals.

The match wasn’t the best but it ended with a draw which isn’t a bad result.

After the footie me and all my friends from our group gathered at Sam & Livy’s to celebrate Livy’s birthday.

We had a lovely BBQ in the sun and it was great to chill out and catch up with each other.

In the evening the boys came over for a sleepover, which was awesome!

We didn’t do much as it was late by the time we got home from the BBQ but, there was just enough time for a treat!ice creams all round.

Tuesday 4th September 2018

Me and Noah went to the cinema together this morning. Our local cinema does ‘Movies for juniors’ showings in the mornings and this morning it was Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’.

We had a great time watching a Disney classic and enjoying some snacks.

As this was my last day off I spent the afternoon chillin’ out. The perfect end to the summer hols.


And thats it, the end of the Summer hols! I can’t believe they are over already,

They seem to get quicker and quicker every year.

I hope you enjoyed this little mini series, taking a look inside my Summer hols and what I got up to.

Until next time,

Dior’s New Autumn collection 2018 ๐Ÿ’„

Last weekend I went into Debenhams, more specifically the Dior counter to see my lovely friend who works there.

She wanted to show me, and try out, some of the amazing products from Dior’s latest Autumn collection.

The collection boasts a wide range of products from lipsticks with a new semi matte formula, highlighters, eye shadow and blushers.

They are all so beautiful and I loved trying them out.

So, let’s take a look at the collection…

The collections are the ‘Dior An Diable’ & The ‘DiorRouge Ultra Rouge’

The An Diable collection includes some eye shadow palettes and some beautiful highlighters.

The Ultra Rouge collection is permenant and includes their new Semi matte lipsticks that last for 12 hours!! Within the lipstick collection they have four reds so you can choose your perfect shade. Who doesn’t love a red lip!

It also includes nail varnishes, the colours have been selected to compliment the other products in the range, this is a brilliant idea.

Everything in these collections is Limited edition except for the blushers and highlighters.

So, what products did I try out?

  • The Blusher is no 219 in the shade Rose Montaigne Shimmer.

This is a lovely kinky toned blush with a lovely shimmer running through it. This added a lovely rosy flush to my cheeks.

  • Highlighter Shade no 02.

This is a beautiful highlighter and it is SO pigmented. It gives you a lovely irredescent glow and is just so pretty.

Like the blushers these are the perfect size for popping into your handbag on the go, I’m not a fan of bulky packaging.

  • Ultra Rouge Lipstick in the shade Rouge 485.

This lipstick was a pretty pink tone. As I said it is semi matte but wasn’t at all tacky and it really did last on my lips.

I also love the lipstick packaging, it looks so sleek.

  • Eyeshadow palette in the shade 837 Devilish.

This eye shadow palette is so pretty. I love the range of colours and it has some perfect Autumn shades for day and night time looks.

Those goldy tones and the rosey, burgundy are just beautiful.

The colour I wore was the pretty and subtle pink shade in the top corner.

Again, a super handy size!

I had so much fun trying all these products out and I will be going back in to Debenhams to purchase a few myself!

The collection is well worth checking out, especially for all you make up and beauty lovers out there!

It’s very reasonably priced for such good quality and high end make up.

Until next time,

Summer diaries: Week Two, Three & Four!

Apologies for the delay! But my ‘Holiblog’ series kind of took over!

But, the summer hols are only just over so I thought I would finish the series up and update you guys on how I spent the middle weeks of the holidays.

The reason I’ve lumped a few weeks together is because I’m not going to actually explain what I did in weeks Two and Three as that is when we were in Florida…Instead I will leave the links to my holiblogs…

Weeks Two and Three

Florida 18 Holiblog pt1

Florida 18 Holiblog pt2

Florida 18 Holiblog pt3

Week Four

Thursday 23rd/Friday 24th August 2018

Tonight (Thurs) I slept over at my twin sister Sarah’s house.

We had a treat dinner before heading to bed ready for the celebrations the next day.

Friday 24th August 2018 marks two years since my beautiful youngest nephew Casey James was born.

I am so happy I am waking up there and being able to experience his birthday with him first thing. We have a fun day planned!

Our first stop was the cinema to watch

‘Luis and the aliens’

It was brilliant and we had a great time, especially with some yummy snacks and drinks included.

The film was one of the best kids films I’ve seen in ages!

Next stop! McDonald’s for a birthday treat lunch.

Stop number three, Pennikkity Pots!

Here we did something a bit different but fun and creative. The boys both chose a ceramic and they painted it. Casey chose a fish whilst Noah painted a shark.

They loved it!

Nana & Grandads in the evening for more presents opening and cake!!

It was a jammed packed but fun day to celebrate Casey turning two!

Saturday 25th August 2018

Me & my friend from work met up this evening to have a meal together.

Nandos was delicious as usual and the halloumi starter proved as difficult to avoid as always.

It was great to catch up after my holiday and have a good old chat!

Sunday 26th August 2018

Casey Jame’s second birthday party.

It’s kind of a tradition to have a little party each year, with all the family! So of course this year was no exception.

At Sarah & Dans we had party food, present opening, fun, games and of course cake!

There was a definite dino theme amongst his presents and he loved his dinosaur Jurassic World birthday cake.

We rounded off the day with a delicious impromptu (always the best kind) Chinese takeaway.

That’s the penultimate week done, its the last week next week ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Until next time,

Holiblog Florida edition: Pt 3


Disney โญ


The other main reason for visiting Orlando, Florida was to go to Disney World.

& if you havn’t been, but love Disney, I would highly recommend it! It’s just so damn magical โœจ

My husband went as a child and always said this, but I really think you have to experience it to understand.

If I was to try and describe it to you I would just say that it feels really magical, and you wander around in this magical Disney bubble and it’s just fun and happy and full of colourful mickey ears and characters and people bursting into song as if that’s just normal, because at Disney it is, and it’s just awesome.

Disney has loads of different parks so I will share some pictures and memories from each one for you. I will also include a bit on the parades/shows that we saw as they do them SO well at Disney.

Enjoy!


Disney’s Magic Kingdom โญ


The most magical place on earth!

& it really is.

As soon as you walk in you see Mickey shaped topiary, buildings that look like something straight out of an old school Disney film (think Mary Poppins) balloons, lights, vehicles carrying parades and then right at the end of this upbeat Disney street is a truly magical sight, the Disney castle!

Magic Kingdom is home to loads of great rides such as ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ ‘Its a small world’ ‘Haunted Mansion’ ‘Space Mountain’ ‘Thunder Mountain’ ‘Splash Mountain’ and many more!

They also do fantastic character parades that are well worth a watch. They really do unleash your inner child!

The ‘Happily Ever After’ Fireworks are also amazing and 100% worth a watch! So magical ๐ŸŽ†


Disney’s Animal Kingdom ๐Ÿฆ


Animal Kingdom was probably one of my favourite parks out of all of the Disney parks. They are all so well themed and this was no exception!

The park is split into different continents such as Africa and Asia and the animal attractions are themed accordingly.

It is all set around the tree of life which is at the centre of the park and is quite a beautiful sight to behold! (& a great photo point)

It hosts many AMAZING shows, and FYI the Finding Nemo Musical is not to be missed!! Seriously one of the best musicals I’ve ever seen and it doesn’t take up hours of your life!!

The Safari is also brilliant! Its such an awesome feature for the park and the array of animals that you get to see it fantastic.

Animal Kingdom is also home to the largest Rainforest Cafe in the world. We had our lunch in there and it’s really cool inside. If you’ve ever wanted to experience lunch in the rainforest then it’s definatly for you!


Disney’s Epcot ๐Ÿ”ฎ


Also one of my faves (unexpectedly) was Disney’s Epcot park! Epcot is quite different from the other Disney parks but is so interesting in what it has to offer.

The great thing about Disney World is the variety that all the different parks offer, there really is something for everyone.

Epcot is so interesting because it’s very much about the future and how we can improve the world and build on the world we have using our minds, skills, resources and technology.

This is shown through experiences, games and rides.

One of my favourite rides, Soarin was a fantastic 4D simulator ride over different landscapes and it was phenomonal.

It also has a cool ‘Finding Nemo’ section within the Aquarium which was cool. The different sea life was great to see.

Plus, they did the best mac and cheese that I had the whole time I was in America haha.

Aside from these things it also boasts a MASSIVE lake that is surrounded by buildings and eateries all themed around different countries, so you can take mini tour around the world as you walk around the lake. It’s like nowhere I’ve ever been to before and it is really well done.

& not forgetting the Epcot fireworks which are hands down the best I’ve ever seen. It was an absolutely fantastic show and the fireworks, lights and music were so impressive! Again, not one to be missed.

Epcot was also epic because I got another character photo with Goofy (my fave) in my Goofy hat & he signed my hat! Awesome.


Disney’s Hollywood Studios ๐ŸŽฌ


This is one of the newer parks and is home to lots of the Star Wars action.

Again, this was really well themed.

The streets looked like old style American New York sidewalks with skyscrapers, theatres, gas stations, diners and so on.

The main stage always played host to a show or performance which was cool to stop and watch as you walked around.

We turned up just in for the ‘March of the first order’ of Stormtroopers. Even as someone who isn’t a fan of Star Wars I thought this was really cool. It was so realistic and you just get so swept up in it all that you kind of forget it isn’t real.

Hollywood Studios also has great features and rides such as ‘Frozen’ the ‘Indiana Jones Stunt show’ ‘Tower of terror’ ‘Rockin Rollercoaster’ and loads more.

It’s also home to the brand new ‘Toy Story Land’ which is so cool. Everything in this part of the park is seemingly made out of toys, Knexs for the fences, giant Jenga pieces, building blocks, and so on.


Disney’s Blizzard Beach โ„


Disney also plays host to two different water parks. Again these are really well themed and lots of fun.

The one we made it to was Blizzard Beach.

I was really glad we managed to see one of the water parks however, our day didn’t turn out as planned as a storm hit as we arrived and we were unable to go on any rides. Eventually we had to give up and find something else to do for the day which was a shame.

We did get to walk around the park and see all the themeing for a little bit before the storm struck but, we didn’t really get to experience it in its full glory.

However, this was where I had my first photo with Goofy so every cloud!

The other park is called ‘Typhoon Lagoon’.


I’ve always been a big fan of Disney films but I was never that fussed about visiting Disney, however now that I have been all I would say to you is GO!

Disney truly is SO much more amazing and magical than I could have ever imagined and so much fun, for all the family! It really does have to been seen to be believed and experienced to be appreciated. I’ve definatly got the Disney bug now so next stop Disneyland Paris haha ๐ŸŽข๐ŸŽก๐Ÿฐ

Until next time,

Back to School stationary โœ


Back to School Stationary


And yeah it counts, because I work in a school! Haha.

I love a bit of stationary, any excuse! But one that’s actually legit is ‘Back to School’ at September time.

I work as a learning support assistant (Or a TA, whatever you like!) in a primary school, So stationary is essential! But also, who doesn’t love a pretty notebook & pencil case!?!

So, here’s my mini haul ready to go back to work this September! Let’s take a look!



Diary/Planner


Pink is one of my absolute fave colours, especially this dusky shade! teamed with the gold font and I was sold.

This diary is perfect for this time of year as it starts from July 2018 and goes all the way up to August 2019.

I really like the timetable section as this will be super handy at work for keeping track of where I need to be and when.

This was ยฃ8.99 in WH Smith’s.


Notebooks


I have two of these Harry Potter notebooks ready for the coming year and they are SO cool.

They are a simple lined notebook with a ring spine.

Perfect for taking notes and keeping on top of lists.

These were both given to me as a gift but there is alot of Harry Potter merch around atm so I’m sure they, or something similar, would be super easy to find!


Pens


September means Sharpies!

I always get a new set of these bad boys in the ‘Back to School’ sales and this year was no exception!

I always look in Tesco as they usually have a great stationary sale around this time of year and it’s all so pretty.

This is a limited edition set of Sharpies that comes with 30 pens. It has 24 Fine point markers and 6 Ultra fine point markers.

Sharpies are great, the selection of colours in this set is awesome and they last ages.

This set was ยฃ15 in Tesco.


Highlighters


These highlighter are beautiful ๐Ÿ˜

I use highlighters all the time at work and they are just super handy when making notes, taking observations and doing assessments.

I had to pick these up in pastel colours because, just look at them!!!

SO cool.

This pack was a bargain at ยฃ2.99 because I was buying the planner at the same time. Kind of like an add on item!

ยฃ2.99 in WH Smith’s


Enjoy your time back at school!

Until next time,

Holiblog: Florida edition pt 2


Universal Studios

๐ŸŒŽ


One of (if not the main) reason why we chose Florida was to visit Universal Studios.

If you know me and my twin sister, or have read some of my previous posts you may know that we like Harry Potter… ALOT! So, making it to Universal and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter was a dream for us, for quite a while.

I still can’t believe, as I’m writing this, that we’ve actually been.

And yes, it’s every bit as epic as you can imagine (& then some) because I really think it’s one of those places that you can’t quite imagine until you are there.

Universal has three parks, Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure are the theme parks ๐ŸŽข and separate is Volcano Bay which is a water park ๐ŸŒŠ

Islands of adventure homes Hogwarts, Hogsmede village, Seuss Landing, Juarssic Park, Superhero city, King Kong and loads more!

Universal Studios homes Diagon Alley, The Simpson’s, Transformers, Men in black, Minions, Shrek etc etc.

The rides are brilliant and, not just that, the queues!!

You never really feel like you are queuing up for ages because everything is so well themed.

The Harry Potter queues were EPIC.

You got to go through Hogwarts as you wait for ‘Harry Potter & the forbidden journey’

And you go through Gringotts bank as you wait for ‘Harry Potter & the escape from Gringotts’

The attention to detail is incredible, it’s just all so well done.

Even if you aren’t a Harry Potter fan you would love it.

It was so cool to go through Hogsmeade, visit the shops, have food in the eateries (just like in the books!!) Travel on the Hogwarts express and Shop in Diagon Alley. It’s just amazing.

The Hogwarts express train takes you from one park to the over so although you can walk this is a lovely way to go.

I will go into a bit more detail about the Harry potter section in a later post as me and my sister had a day at the Harry Potter parts ๐Ÿ˜

Some of my other favourite parts of Universal include ‘Seuss Landing’

This is all themed like the different books by Dr Seuss, such as The Grinch, Cat in the Hat, Sneeches, Green eggs & ham etc.

It was absolutely brilliant. So colourful and fun you couldn’t help but enjoy yourself in there. We had a lovely lunch in The Circus Mcgurkis too which was fun as one of the rides goes through the restaurant.

This was a big hit with my nephews, very child friendly and as I said, lots of fun!

I also loved The Simpson’s area; ‘Springfield’ this again was so well done. The roads and decorations were all done in a cartoon style so you really felt like you were walking through the Simpson’s.

There were loads of the iconic shops like Moes Tavern, The Kwik i Mart, Lard Lad doughnuts etc. It was great. The Simpson’s rides was also one of my favourites too.

Universal have loads of Simulator rides which are fantastic, you really feel like you are in the experience whether it be the Simpson’s, Harry Potter, Spiderman. If you are a fan of 3D/4DX simulators then you’ll love these. They were great for me as I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to rollercoasters haha.

One of our favourite things about Universal was the refillable cups that they had on offer. You paid to buy it and then you could refill it as many times as you want! The machines had LOADS of different beverages with so many flavours. Each day you had to re activate it but it was cheaper to do so and when you are spending the whole day there it saves you alot of money.

It was a god send in the August heat!!

Universal was so easy to get to from our Hotel, we could walk in 30mins, although it wasn’t always advisable in the heat with small children, especially at certain times of the day (but we did go in August!!)

Our hotel also had a free shuttle to Universal and there were free shuttles to Volcano bay too which was super handy.

Volcano Bay

We spent an afternoon at Volcano bay water park and it was really good fun.

It’s quite a new park.

It was super easy to get to as I said and once you were there, there was lots to do.

You get these cool Tapu Tapu wristbands that allow you to book a space on a slide so you never have to queue, you just get notified of when there is a space!

We loved the lazy river ๐ŸŒŠ

The Volcano at the centre of the park was really impressive and although I was too much of a wimp to try out the hideously high slides coming from it, it did look really cool.

We could even see it smoking from our hotel a few miles away haha.

It looked really cool lit up at night.

Until next time,

Holiblog: Florida edition pt1


Part one: The Hotel & local area


So, if you’ve followed me for a bit you’ll know that back in 2016 I did a Holiblog (Holiday Blog -See what I did there?!) Series when we were on our honeymoon to Sardinia.

Well, for the last two weeks we have been on our dream holiday in Orlando, Florida and I really wanted to do the same for this trip, as a nice way to capture the experience.

We packed alot into two weeks so I’m not 100% sure how I will split the blogs yet as I will only know how long they will be when I’m writing them, but that’s why it’s a series aye!

For the first edition I thought that I would show you guys the amazing Orlando area inc our lovely Hotel/Apartment.

So without further ado, let’s get stuck in!


The Apartment/Hotel

We stayed at the amazing Enclave Suites off International Drive.

We had a two bedroom apartment for the 6 of us (Casey in a travel cot) Both bedrooms had lovely en-suites and the lounge and kitchenette were great.

We also had a lovely long balcony with an awesome view of the pool & surrounding area. Love a balcony.

The hotel had a lovely big pool which our apartment over looked.

It also had lovely grounds with lots of lush greenery and a quaint gazebo area overlooking a lake.

The hotel had a restaurant onsite which is where we had our complimentary brekky, it also did some really yummy lunch food and was Pizza hut in the evening!!

The staff were SO friendly and made you feel so welcome and at home.

I would 100% recommend checking them out if you are off to Florida and I would love to go back.

โžก๏ธ The Enclave Suites


The local area

The surrounding area was really lovely.

We were close to busy International Drive so it was very commercial but the roads are lined with beautiful lush grass, palm trees and man made lakes.

And of course the beautiful blue skies help with the lovely feel of the place ๐Ÿž

As I said some of it very commercial but it’s so COOL and you really feel like you are getting the full American experience.

Until next time,

I finally made it…

I can’t actually believe that I FINALLY get to write this blog post….

Those of you who have followed my blog for a while will know that I have been following the Slimming World plan for a few years, starting with my older sister Charlotte, back in 2014.

And now I am, as of Thursday 26th July 2018, A SLIMMING WORLD TARGET MEMBER!!

I went to weigh in feeling good after a positive week on plan, but not sure if I would get the 2lb loss I needed.

When I got on the scales and the numbers moved up and down, finally resting exactly on my target weight I was so shocked!!! & SO chuffed (I actually squealed!! & cried ๐Ÿคฃ)

Ever since we booked our holiday over a year ago (Something crazy like 400 days ago!!) I said to myself I would get to my target, and at times I didn’t believe it to be honest, but it just proves that if you don’t let that doubt get the better of you and you carry on doing what you need to do, you can achieve your goals.

So Don’t give up!!!

I feel so good going into my holiday as a target member. I can’t remember the last time I felt as good in my clothes as I do now.

Buying my holiday clothes was such a pleasure this time round & I have been much more comfortable in my workout & summer clothes in the heat that we have been having.

It’s a great feeling to feel good about yourself.

Me and my twin sister Sarah were talking about this at group and saying that, even though we were always very slim when we were teens, we never felt as comfortable in our clothes as we do now, maybe you have to get to a low point in order to appreciate the high.

I know that I have achieved this, for myself and that’s pretty awesome.

I know that when I come back from holiday I am going to be straight out of my target (2 weeks in America, let’s be real) but I am armed with my target members book, motivation, good habits and everything that I have learnt so far on my Slimming World journey.

So, hopefully I will get back into that target range promptly.

Here’s a couple of cheeky little photo comparisons from 2014 now.

Until next time,

Summer diaries: Week one!

I thought I would do a little series of blogs, throughout the Summer hols, all about what I get up to.

I asked over on my Twitter & Facebook page (@Roseannesblog) and it was a resounding yes, so here is Summer diaries instalment one.

The school I work at broke up on Friday so I’ll be starting it from then onwards.

Next week we are off on our holidays for 2 weeks so I will probably bring back my ‘Holiblog’ series from 2016, with the Florida edition, so that you can see what we get up to in Orlando.

Hopefully you guys will find this interesting & who knows it might even inspire you during the long summer break.

So let’s take a look at Week one!

IMG-20180721-WA0019.jpg

Saturday 21st July 2018

Today I met up with my uni friends. We always try and have a couple of meet ups every now and then and we always meet in London.

We decided to do something a bit different this time and take the tube to the cinema at the 02.

But first, we met up in Westfield for a Nandos and a catch up!

We headed to the 02 to watch the 2pm showing of ‘Hotel Artemis’, I really enjoyed the film and the snacks!

I did a bit of shopping back at Westfield before I got my coach home.

Another fun day out together!

Sunday 22nd July 2018

Today my twin sister Sarah and my two nephew’s Noah & Casey came round for lunch!

We ended up spending the afternoon together, playing games, puzzles and we even went out to have a look at the boats and for a drink at a local cafe, in the sunshine โ˜€๏ธ

IMG_20180722_162427_062.jpg

20180722_150534.jpg

It’s the evening now and I’m staying over at my older sister Charlotte’s house with my niece Evie-Mae. We are off out together tomorrow so it made sense to stay over as she lives the other side of town to me.

Monday 23rd July 2018

Today we are off to a baby group (Me, my sister’s Sarah & Charlotte and my Niece Evie and Nephews Noah & Casey).

We had a lovely play in the sunshine, on the bikes, in the water & paint. The kiddies enjoyed a snack and we sung some songs together too, which was lovely.

I loved being able to go as I’m always at work when they usually go.

Off into town after the baby group and I bought a few holiday bits.

We just met our friend Demi for a coffee and a catch up in town and now I am heading to work.

Wednesday 25th July 2018

20180725_113730.jpg

20180725_113640.jpgThis morning I headed to the cinema with my two favourite little guys.

We went to watch Thomas & Friends: Big adventure! Armed with snacks and special cups we sat down and enjoyed the film.

The boys were so good and we all really enjoyed ourselves ๐Ÿ˜Š

20180725_154139.jpg

This afternoon my mum, my friend Steph and her two little boys are round for a cuppa, cake & a catch up!

We always try and meet up a few times in the holidays which is great.

Friday 27th July 2018

I’m off out this evening for drinks with my friend Charlotte. We are both off on holiday soon so we thought it would be nice to get together beforehand.

Coast to Coast & Cosy Club were our destinations for drinks.

I love Cosy Clubs ‘Cherry Bakewell’ cocktail ๐Ÿ’

That’s Week One, done! I hope you’ve all been able to enjoy the sunshine wherever you are.

Until next time,

6 Slimming World Sweet treats๐Ÿด

So, if like me you LOVE snacks and having a tasty treat alongside your free/speed food on the Slimming World plan then this post is perfect for you.

I love the versatility of the plan that Slimming World offers, especially the 5-15 syns that allows for some seriously sweet, and super yummy treats.

th

Below I have listed six of my fave sweet treats, including their syn values.

Hopefully this will give you some inspiration, if like me you need help with treat ideas and low syn snacks to get you through the day.

RidLMxkyT

1. Sweet & Salty popcorn

Ranging from 2.5-6 syns

The syns depend on the brand. I love the mini packets from Tesco that are 2.5 syns & Aldi’s own brand, which are a much bigger bag, for 6 syns.

Popcorn is a great snack, healthier than others & great for the cinema!

2. Hi fi bars

Syns: 3 syns each//X2 as a HEX B

My favourite flavour of hi fi bar is salted caramel, they are A-MAZING!

These are a great snack but some are also great as a cereal bar for a quick brekky on the go.

These are only available in class.

th

3. Snack biscuits

Syns: 2.5 syns per biscuit.

These are literally one of my favourite biscuits, covered in my favourite chocolate (I used to love the Cadbury shortcake bar in the blue wrapper!! 90s throwback!!) I didn’t realise how low in syns theses are… perfect with a cuppa and they definatly sort out that choc craving.

4. Nutella B Ready bars

Syns: 6 syns.

I LOVE these, they are so crispy and delicious and FULL of Nutella!! They are a great sweet treat for all you chocoholics like me.

5. No added sugar Jelly

Syns: 0.5 syn.

These make a perfect dessert after a meal, they are really tasty, with loads of flavours available & are really low in syns. My favourite flavour is raspberry.

Make sure it’s No added sugar Jelly as the others are more synful.

6. Whitworths Shots Berry & White chocolate

Syns: 4.5 syns

These are so sweet! I love the combo of dried fruit, which is naturally super sweet, and loads of little cubes of white chocolate, sooooo good.

They are surprisingly chocolatey too.

Well worth 4.5 syns as you get alot in the pack too, more than you’d think.

These are all perfect, they hit that sweet craving and make a great addition to a snack plate at the end of an eve.

So tasty!

il_fullxfull.1264329741_iqxv

Who says following a meal plan means you have to eat boring food aye, because let’s be honest, we all like a snack.

I hope you’ve found this handy. If you’d like me to do a savoury version then let me know.
