Can you believe it is April already? This is my fourth challenge as a Bostik Blogger and this month’s theme is Ocean. I have received a crafting box packed with seashells, sand coloured paint and many more. So my children decided to make an ocean puppet play box.
This year 2015, I was invited for two fitness challenges which is to trial Epson Pulsense watch and Alive! Women’s energy multi-vitamin.
I have to say that going to the gym or any form of exercise is definitely not my cup of tea. My weight has been like a yo-yo since young. This year, I wanted to be different! So I am thrilled to trial Alive! multi-vitamin to give me the boost that I needed.
Alive! is already a huge hit in the US and is launching in the UK this coming February. Do look out for them. What’s so different about Alive is that it is the only multi-vitamin and mineral brand available in the UK containing a proprietary dried blend of 26 fruits & vegetables including, pomegranate, acai berry, cranberry, blueberry, strawberry, beetroot, carrot, cabbage and apple. It does not contain gluten, soya, dairy, yeast, artificial flavourings or colours.
Each Alive! product is specially formulated for men, women and children from 3 years, taking into consideration their unique needs and ensuring that it is the best and most comprehensive available to the UK consumer.
This post is an entry for Mission Deli Wraps “Our Super Soft Mission” challenge.
Mission Foods, the UK’s No.1 brand of bakery wraps, introduced its Super Soft recipe to the UK market this summer. Their new softer wrap doesn’t dry out and retains its freshly made taste, without compromising on taste or versatility.
We love holidaying in the UK especially as there are so many places worth visiting like Bath, lovely beaches in Cornwall and Devon and the Lake District. Also you are able to pack your must-have items that you unable to take on an overseas holiday!
My must-have for holiday is my bolster pillow (if you don’t know what that is, it is a long, thick pillow)! I know it sounds strange but I have had one since very young and can never get a good nights sleep without one. I suppose it’s a bit like a child with their bedtime bear as I am hugging the bolster pillow to sleep. I bought three different bolster pillows over from Singapore as I can’t find them in the UK. Whenever we go away in the UK I will take it along. It is very lightweight and easy to squeeze in between luggage or it can be used for sleeping in the car! There are also many other things which I would consider must-haves, like my favourite Chinese snacks and carton drinks.

JML has just launched Regis Stone which is a revolutionary pan with a non-stick coating. It eliminates the need for additional oil or fats and with the hybrid stone coating, it helps conduct heat much faster than regular pans. It comes in 20 cm, 24 cm and 28 cm sizes, prices range from £19.99. I have received the 24 cm pan to create my perfect healthy fried breakfast using the pan for a blogger challenge. I am delighted to take it on.
Recently, I saw an opportunity to enter a food challenge and I am so glad to be part of it. In celebration of Villa Plus’ new “Local Food” guides that have been rolled out for each destination, they are asking bloggers to recreate a dish from one of the regions. There are 5 regions (Menorca, Kefalonia, Costa Blanca, Fuertaventura, Costa Del Sol) and with 2 bloggers to each region. I was chosen to cook a Costa Del Sol dish.
To be honest, I have never been to Costa Del Sol nor tried their local cuisine. So I did some quick research and did a very quick dish which is the soups perote. I chose this dish as this is my first time cooking such a dish and therefore I liked the fact that it uses minimal ingredients which are easy to get hold of. I was also intrigued that it uses old bread. So if you happen to have any old bread, you might want to try this out instead of baking bread pudding.
I had followed the recipe on Visit Costa Del Sol Soups Perote. This is a typical dish of the town of Alora in the Guadalhorce valley region. Every October, the village celebrates the Soups Perote Day.
All the ingredients used in this dish were bought from supermarket. This soups perote comes in at £1.20 per person and they can be easily found in any supermarkets.
I decided to bake my own bread instead of buying it from the supermarket. I had previously written a bread recipe, please click here to see the method. You require strong white bread, yeast, warm water, salt and sugar. This is what I had baked two days ago and left it on the side.
Each month Kingfisher Shopping Centre sets a local fashion blogger a challenge where they have to buy a Spring/Summer outfit from the Kingfisher Shopping Centre for £50.00 or less. I am really happy to have been selected to do this challenge. I have not done an adult fashion blog on my blog before and this is a great treat for myself and let my readers to know more about me.
