For 2017 I decided to post my bucket list for the year online with hopes that it would keep me on track to completing a good chunk of my goals for the year. (And, if you fancy a read, I recently published an update post on how I did.) So, it seemed a no-brainer for me to do it for 2018 too. If you fancy a nosey at my plans for the coming year, then well, carry on reading below. Here’s hoping I’m as successful with these as I was last year, or, even better would be nice!
As I’ve probably already mentioned a few times on here, not only am I trying to cut down on my meat consumption (and did quite well in 2017) I’m also trying to follow the Slimming World diet plan. Albeit with the odd day off because I love going out to eat far too much. Anyway, on that note, I recently picked up a book from Slimming World focusing on different sauces with the idea to make my dinners a little more exciting. While some of them may not quite be up my street, as I’m a huge spice fiend, I found the various curry recipes to be of most interest. In particular this pineapple jalfrezi, a combination I never would have thought to try. Even if you’re not following the plan, this is a delicious recipe that’s not only veggie and vegan-friendly but packed full of veggies so I thought since I enjoyed it so much, I’d share it with you lovely lot;

Ohhh boy, it’s another late “It’s The Little Things” post. Only this time, it’s really really really late. I actually considered skipping doing this post and my 5 Happy Things for December but heck, it was a great month and even if it’s a trip down memory lane. I really do enjoy writing these kinds of posts. So here’s me grabbing a cuppa ready to sit down with my diary and give you guys a note of some of the little things that made me happy in December.
As I mentioned, a few months back I went to an evening of pampering, sneak-peeks and cocktails at Cheeky Salon and Parlour. Chambord provided the drinks for the evening, namely some amazing cocktails involving the raspberry liquor. Chambord has been one of my favourite cocktail ingredients, so after enjoying a few there I decided to recreate some at home. Because, well, it was Friday after all!
Back at the beginning of 2017, I decided to share my bucket list for the coming year online. The main reason being, in previous years I’ve written them in a notebook and either lost or filled that notebook and could not for the life of me remember what they were. That, or I’d had them on my phone and coming to the end of the year been like “not gonna happen but no one knows them, doesn’t matter”. So I thought I’d post them on my blog so that I’d feel a little more accountable. That, and I’m nosey and enjoy reading these kinds of posts.
On that note, here’s how I got on with my 2017 bucket list;
