Happy (belated New Year)

So, I haven't posted in a while and January has positively flown by!

My main focus for 2015 has been to get ORGANISED. I am so tired of not being able to find anything when I wanted, so I am working on one area at a time and blitzing it!

The first thing was my make up drawer, before the sort out it was just all just thrown in and rammed so full I could barely open it. I took everything out, threw away things which were past their best or I'd never use and started to put thing back in. I got some great little storage boxes from B&M bargains and this was the finished result:

It makes me feel happy when I open the drawer now instead of frustrated. I can see everything clearly and have grouped products together which also helps. The boxes were a bargain at only 99p each and the Perspex lipstick holder was given to me by a friend (you can buy them on EBay).

The next thing to sort was my shoes and boots, I am lucky enough to have a large cupboard in the corner of my dressing room, before the shoes and boots were flung in with the same ones being worn over and over whilst the others were buried at the back. I invested in some clear boxes from eBay and Ta Da! this is what I achieved:

The boxes stack nicely on top of each other and more importantly they are clear so you can see what's inside. You can purchase the boxes in different sizes depending on the size of the footwear. The larger ones are perfect for knee boots. (This cupboard is usually where I hang my extra long dresses and coats but I removed them for the photo so you could see the boxes)

So I think my organisation plan resolution has started off well? Even though each area takes time, if you only focus on that once area and don't get distracted, it doesn't take too long at all and the results are so worth it!

I've still got a long way to go but if I focus on one area per week I should be done in no time.
Do you have any fab organisation tips for me?

After all this hard work, there was only one thing for it.... a hot bubble bath with a glass of rose wine :)

Protein hot chocolate treat!!

Sorry for the delay in getting this post up, this time of year is crazy as usual!!

I recently made my friend a protein hot chocolate, she wasn't aware protein hot choc existed, so it made how many other people are in the dark about this fabulous treat!

I have tried a few different brands and to date my favourite is this one from MyProtein.

Each serving of Protein Hot Chocolate has over 15g of protein sourced from a unique combination of Milk Protein Concentrate, PeptoPro® (Casein Hydrolysate) and Micellar Casein.

Each serving provides less than half a gram of fat and only 4g of sugar.

I am sure you don't need instructions to make hot chocolate, however, at this time of year I like to make my hot chocolate a little naughty, here's my recipe for protein Irish cream hot chocolate :)
I have added links to the ingredients I use.

One mug of milk per person
One heaped scoop of Chocolate powder per person
Irish Cream
Whipped cream
Marshmallows (optional)
Chocolate topping (optional)

Gently heat your milk in a saucepan and add the protein powder
Stir until smooth
Pour in your Irish Cream (up to you how much you add!)
Give it a good stir
Pour into your cup

If desired add whipped cream, marshmallows and a crumbled flake on top :)

The great thing about this is you can add as little or as much as you like, so you can choose how naughty you are!!

MYPROTEIN also offer a Hot Mocha and a Hot Latte which are both delicious too :)
