Rustlers Burger Hacking Challenge

I was set a challenge to see what meal I could make with Rustlers Southern Fried Chicken Burgers this week, and I chose to do a healthy option!

Chunk does at least three clubs a week at the moment after school, so I am always rushing about trying to find quick, but healthy meals to cook. His first words to me are not "Hi Mum" it's always "I'm hungry" so quick and easy meals are always are winner for us.

Rustlers do a range of burgers which take just 90 seconds to heat up in the microwave, so they're the quickest meal I've ever made!

Attempting To Get Some Self-Esteem

2017 was one of the most awful years to date, so I've decided some changes need to be made as I don't want to go through any of that again any time soon!

Whilst it was hard, I also spent a lot of time finding ways to grow my mind and strategies to deal with a lot of things. This has included refreshing my knowledge in neuro-linguistic programming, mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy. Not to mention completing a beginners sewing class, getting an allotment and starting one to one yoga sessions which have all been great!

One to One Yoga Has Been Amazing For Me

So now my head is getting back on track and mentally I feel stronger than ever, because funnily enough nearly losing your mind strengthens it beyond belief.

Win An Iconique Kaftan or Sun Dress For Summer

I was sent a gorgeous Gottex Profile Swan Lake swimdress to try out from UK Swimwear and they also have given me the chance to give one of you an Iconique Kaftan or Sun Dress!

The swimdress comes in two colours, ink and Manhattan blue. I chose Manhattan blue because I'm hoping it will compliment the tan I aim to get this summer when I go on holiday!

I love the style of it as well as what it can do. Profile is Gottex's range that concentrates on shaping your figure and this swimdress features tummy control and the central meridian line of the design gives you height, whilst the ruching and the skirt helps you gain the hourglass figure that most of us crave.

Money Saving Tips For Single Parents

This time of year is so hard on many families financially, with Christmas gifts and even increased heating bills as it's already getting so cold, which is why I like to share the tips I've found that help keep me within my tight budget.

Use A Food Bank

I'm not ashamed to admit that this year things got so difficult that I sometimes use my local food bank. They are an amazing resource and one that a lot of families rely on.

Each food bank has different criteria, which are usually in terms of checking your income and what benefits you are on, but if you are eligible I would urge you to use them.

They are a great resource and each week I not only get the basic necessities such as pasta, bread, milk but also foods that we had never tried so we have fun trying new things!
