Happy New Year 

Happy New Year my loves…

1st January, 2016. Wow!

Isn’t God good? I mean, I entered 2015 pretty shaken – both physically & emotionally and perhaps it sort of set the tone for how the rest of the year panned out. 2015 has been a pretty rough year [on different levels] for a lot of us, but look at us are still here. Alive. Healthy. Well.

I know that for some of us, we probably feel like we didn’t get much done, maybe some goals weren’t met, maybe the math didn’t add up, maybe some deals fell through etc. But there’s nothing as consoling as perspective and so as we think about the things that didn’t work and didn’t happen, try to flip the coin and think in terms of “despites”. DESPITE it all……. WE ARE STILL STANDING!

STILL ALIVE! There’s hope!

Indeed, there’s so much to be thankful for.

My favourite thing about a new year is the hope it brings, people feel like they have a chance at starting afresh and re-doing a lot and even though a lot of people joke about half cut resolutions, I love that promise of hope. The day you lose hope as a human being is the day you lose everything… So hope away! Resolute away! Do not let anyone shame you into cowering.

NEVER STOP DECLARING EACH NEW YEAR AS YOURS

I’ve been nursing a nasty flu and chesty cough that’s left me pretty useless in the past couple of days but we got VIP tickets to go see #WakaaTheMusical yesterday and I couldn’t miss that for nothing. I threw on a nice white shirt & jeans, smacked on the reddest lipstick I own [which is an instant mood lifter] and headed over to Muson Centre.img_1131.jpeg

Christmas, Fun, Happy,, Holiday

Merry Christmas 

Merry Christmas my lovelies…

is

My! My! What a year! 2015!

But look at us, headcount complete, no broken bones, none is sick, we have plenty food and family and belly laughs and love… Indeed there’s so much to be thankful for.

I’ve done a lot of waka/activity since December began and it sort of set the tone/pace for my Christmas holiday *no complaints at all*

Was in Kaduna over the weekend for a dear friend’s family event – wedding/kamu. It was so lovely. I lived in Kaduna as a child and so it was nice to visit again as an adult. Even though I couldn’t remember much, I remembered angwar rimi, Hamdala hotel, durbar hotel [defunct] and Barnawa. Very nostalgic! Many thanks dear Hauwa, for being such an amazing hostess and happy married life to our dear Aíe.

Kamu guest. #Kaduna

In the flurry of activity, I’ve sha ended up in Lagos, which is where I’ll be spending Christmas and I couldn’t have picked better. It’s been a whirlwind and I’ve barely gotten any sleep, but TIGERBLOOD!!! Ha ha

Woke up today like this……. *Food coma*

Bonus selfies just because….

    

 

Thank you guys for always reading my blog, for engaging with me, for giving me constructive feedback and for being all round awesome! One of you lovelies emailed me yesterday to check in [as per I hadn’t updated this page in a minute], I was so touched by the gesture. Thank you specially Halima. You made me smile.

I wish you all the very best as we all wrap up 2015 and I pray that 2016 brings with it, the very best! God bless you all always *sprinkles happy glitter*

Birthday, Family, Happy,, Holiday

Birthday….Funday…

My baby girl turned one last Thursday and it was a paaaaaartaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!!!!!

IMG_7266.JPGIMG_7291.PNG

I honestly can’t believe it’s been a year already since my niece was born; time does fly indeed! I still remember that day like it was yesterday – Wednesday, 2nd july 2014 – my sister [her mom] had been in labour for 17 hours and it was such a nerve-racking experience for all of us – the waiting, the tears, the drama – phew! She came at about 5.30pm on a Wednesday but I couldn’t make it to see them until Friday because of work [2 extra long days of waiting]. When I saw my niece, it was love at first sight; this precious rosy cheeked mini-human was about to change all our lives forever and it’s truly been a joy ride ever since. I love my niece! So much! I love her like she is mine and I’m totally obsessed with those cheeks.  She’s a happy, bubbly, cheerful and friendly child and it’s never a dull moment with her; even with my mother’s epic shade, I’ll never not be obsessed.

As expected, I flooded my Instagram TL with these bajillion collages that basically said – I have so many pictures of my niece, i’m spoilt for choice, bear with me – my followers had no choice but to deal. I’m an obsessed aunty.

  IMG_6881.JPG

Even though the party was fixed for Saturday, I headed off to Makurdi on Thursday [of the actual birthday] to spend the day with the birthday girl. We spent it running around the house, eating pounded yam and driving around running errands with Grandma [my mum].

Cute Story: Immediately she sees a camera, she starts saying “cheeeeeeeeeese”….

  

Birthday Girl got a monster police truck and her face says it all

 ***

Saturday rolled around and it was so much fun with the entire family [extended inclusive]. There was so much food, laughs, partying, drinks, music, face paints, games, bouncy castles, hoops etc.

   IMG_6994.JPG IMG_7023.JPG

My other babies – Ngohide, Secivir and Baby Afa – were on cousin support duty

   

Three Generations – Grandma, Mummy and birthday girl.

IMG_7002.JPG IMG_7003.JPG

The pictures above are my favourite of the entire bunch because they captures their different personalities so well. Ngohide and Iveren are totally in the zone and having a moment while Secivir is in the corner giving ZERO fucks! Just look at her face! Lmao.

IMG_7063.JPG

Outfit change to make room for the mayhem     

My baby girl…. I keep asking for kisses #ObsessedMuch #LifeInTechnicolour

I took these last night after bedtime shower… how precious! #CurrentFaves

 

We had such a lovely time, family bonding and everything nice. Happy birthday baby girl, may God bless and keep you happy always. Aunty loves you xx.

****

When I’m in Benue, I never pass up on the opportunity to get those mean #BenueBraids done and this trip wasn’t any different…. I’m feeling myself!!!

 

Also, I just discovered Ed Sheeran’s cover of O.T Genasis’s – I’m in love with the coco – and its been on repeat ever since. Its so unexpected and totally eargasmic. The Internet won the day I discovered this! Get you a piece if you’ve been carrying last like I’ve been 😀

IMG_7092.JPG How’s everyone doing? Totally dodging y’all’s rotten tomatoes & shoes for being away for so long.

Kisses xx

Happy,, Music, Randomness, Travel

My music and me 

 Music is life!!!

Image result for music quotesI’m a huge lover of music. I play music when I’m just chilling at home, when I’m having a bad day, when I’m happy, when I’m in the bath/loo, when I’m in a car…every place! Every day! My music reflects/affects my mood and I honestly can’t imagine a world without music. It’ll be Drab and Gray and Sad and nobody will be able to cope. I want no parts. Music is so powerful that you don’t need to understand the language/words to be moved – remember Julia Robert’s first time at the opera in Pretty Woman? Powerful.

I believe that a person’s taste in music says a lot about them and I’ve definitely bonded with/unplugged from people on account of music. Once, I fell for a boy because [amongst other things], he used to make me these amazing sleep playlists every week and he introduced me to music that I would never have found by myself; special place in my heart.  Infact, now that I think of it, boys have been using music to toast for a while, I remember this boy in secondary school who would make me mix –tapes , yea, actual CASSETTE TAPES

I did tell you guys last week that I’ve been in a bit of a funk and while I’m not exactly peaches and rainbows yet, I am a lot better now than I was when I wrote that post, thank God. During this period, I’ve not been sleeping well; infact, my sleep pattern is so rubbish that I feel sorry for myself when I’ll need to recalibrate. Like yesterday [today actually], I went to bed at about  4:40am and it’s been this way for a while now. Sigh.

Anyways, since I couldn’t sleep, I decided to play music. I didn’t make a playlist; I just let my player do its thing randomly. As expected, I have all kinds of music/genres in my library, ALL KINDS and each one represents a vivid memory in my mind. It occurred to me some time ago that with every song I’ve ever liked, I have a distinct memory attached to it. I can tell you exactly where I was/what I was doing/who I was with etc when I first heard it or at least, when it first registered in my mind that I liked it. Every single one has a backstory. Yup! So I decided to make it even more fun by playing a little game – for every song that came on, I’d write about the memory I associate to the song. Here goes….

Image result for music quotes

*WARNING: THIS POST IS VERY SHORT*

I Miss You [Beyonce]  – First time I heard this song, I was visiting my friend Shola and we were just gisting in her room when it came on on her ipod dock. Coincidentally, I was going through a breakup at the time and so it got me in my feelings so much that I cried like somebody beat me; and because I enjoy torturing myself, I went and downloaded it immediately. I came back to Abuja armed with the perfect heartbreak song; I’d sit by myself everyday, play it on repeat and cry myself to sleep for like 6 months ha ha… It’s still one of my favourite Beyonce songs and I still get emotional when I listen to it.

You Know I’m No Good [Amy Winehouse] – This song takes me right back to the balcony of my undergraduate apartment on the 7th floor of Desa Palma, Malaysia. It was my first taste at actual freedom in my very own apartment all by myself. LISTEN…. YOU COULDN’T TELL ME NOTHING!! I’d play Amy on ignorant levels and dare my neighbours to knock on my door with complaints. I’d stand on the balcony, drink in hand, people watching and feeling like THIS IS THE LIFE! Good times! It was on one of those balcony days that I watched as the boy I liked who had just stood me up earlier for dinner came to drop off another girl while ignoring my calls – [cue Me and Mr. Jones: what kind of fuckery are you?] I’m sad she died, her death felt for me like it was someone I knew personally and when you actually think about it, how much more personal does it get than Amy’s music?

How To Save A Life [The Fray] – One phrase: Greys Anatomy! Season 2 : Izzie & Denny’s love story, Denny surviving surgery..ah! My heart was so tight; I thought I’d pass out. Since then, the song has been featured twice more on the show in Season 7 and very recently, on the episode WHERE SHONDA RHIMES LOST HER DAMN MIND AND KILLED DEREK OFF THE SHOW.  Expectedly, since getting featured on Greys; the song reached quadruple platinum status [if that exists], beyond successful. It also became the theme song for season 3 of the show and the cast even recreated it. I always say how much of a great gift idea it is if someone gave me the entire compilation of the all the music ever played on Greys Anatomy from season 1 till date, awesome source for finding new music.  Oh and remember on Season 8 of American idol when the song was played after Danny Gokey’s audition for his wife who had just passed away from heart complications.  *sweaty eyes*

Chasing Pavements [Adele]

should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements, even if it leads no where?….”

I was on vacation cooped up in my hotel room, cosy in bed [BY MYSELF] and I turn on the TV and on comes the most striking British voice I’ve heard in a minute, I sat up immediately, logged on to youtube and began a journey into what has become an amazing love story with my baby girl Adele.  This chic just stands there, in a huge tent of a black dress, no gimmicks, no dancers, no flashing lights, no psychedelic discos, just a voice…. I dare you to watch the live performance of – Someone like you – at the Brits and not wipe your eyes. Such presence! Besides the amazing music she makes, I love how unapologetic she is about  herself and I love that she cusses and swears like a sailor and she cackles like no self-respecting lady should but it’s so adorable and real and it tickles.

    

She comes across as real and relatable and totally awesome, I wanna be besties with her. And that delicious British accent that comes through so clearly even in her music…..I especially love her because she took a bad situation and turned it into multiple millions of dollars, wiping out all awards while at it and giving the Ex a big fat middle finger! She wins for you, she wins for me, she wins for any girl who ever got her heart broken but only sat in a corner, ate ice-cream, cried and got fat[ter]. Ha ha.

Breathe [Blu Cantrell ft. Sean Paul] – OMG!!! Major throwback no?! First time I heard this song was from watching the video on Channel O … ancient of days 😀 Where is Blu Cantrell? Listen! I rocked this song well, I’d be singing aloud like…

“you say you love me, say you love me but you’re never there for me….Then comes the drama some other girl is claiming she’s going out with you… All we do is make up, then break up… When love hurts, it won’t work….”

You can tell I’ve always been a lover girl sha ha ha. Everything was so shiny in that video. I’m glad the fashunz has changed since then.

How’s A Man Supposed To Change [Blue] – This entire album is still one of my faves. I got the CD off of a friend and played it so much that by the time I managed to return it, she refused to collect it because it had over scratched and I had to buy her a new one. It was in this song I found out that some superstitious oyibo people believe that if you break a mirror, you’d be cursed with seven years of badluck; just as the ones that believe that if you don’t make eye contact while clinking glasses during a toast, you’d be cursed with 7 years of bad sex. Better don’t take the chance. LOL

Crossroads [Bone Thugs N Harmony]

                                      “and we pray and we pray and we pray…everyday everyday everyday everyday                                                                                           See you tha crossroads so you won’t be lonely”

OMG! BCC Mkar Estate, Gboko. The video for this song gave me nightmares for months. And it didn’t help that my family friend who was a super fan and introduced me to it died shortly after. Horror. Nowadays, when I’m badly in need of Ogbono soup raps, I make do with Twista; if for nothing, I’m sure that I won’t have any nightmares.

Music and Me [Nate Dogg] – I love this man. I love this song. I don’t know what else to say. RIP.

I Want You [Ceelo Green] –  I was aboard an Emirates flight enroute England when I first heard this song. I pretty much spent the rest of the flight with it on repeat and 5 years later, it’s still my song. Let me just say clearly that nothing about Ceelo Green’s physical looks inspires any type of pink dreams for me but on account of the lyrics of this song, I wished he was my lover and had written this song for me. This song is an ode from a man who’s tired of the party scene/fast life and ready to dedicate his life to this …. Ladies, has a man ever thanked the Lord for you?

                                                 “Ooooh …one rarely finds a lady, who happens to be three times the lady…                                                                           God is good, he took his time when he designed you baby, that’s why I want you….                                                                            And, oh I’ll even quit my job, loving you, I’ll make it my job…                                                                                                            Thank you Lord, thank you Lord, this is it my God!”

Don’t Turn The Lights On [Chromeo] – I found Chromeo sometime in 2011 from the comments section of Miafarradaily’s blog and I haven’t looked back since. I recently found a song they did with Solange called  -Lost On My Way Home – Imagine the epicness. Just go to YouTube and watch every Chromeo song you can find. You’re welcome.

Shorty Got Her Eyes On Me [Donnell Jones] – My uncle Dennis. He loves this song so much and transferred the love to me, never mind that the lyrics were far too colorful for my teenage self to be singing them so confidently. What is it about some of these RnB artists that somehow makes their raunchy lyrics sound like Sunday school hymns? He needs to drop something new though, with his 3 hits having ass.

Heaven [Emeli Sande] – Buchanan Station, Glasgow 2012. I was visiting friends and while waiting to be picked, this song came on. Instant hit! I bought the album off Itunes as soon after; it’s one of the few albums I’ve actually ever purchased off Itunes.  Nowadays I remember her as one of my Ex’s favourite artist, ergo, not so fun.

Hurricane [Eric Benet] – It was many years ago, on a cold windy night. I was listening to Nike Coker’s show on Coolfm [via my Nokia 3230]. It was a request show and someone called in to request this song and that was it. I called in and re-requested for it but they said they couldn’t play it twice in such short interval and since there was no spotify/easy internet then,I was stuck. But once I got access, I downloaded it immediately. It’s such a sad yet hopeful song, he’d written it about the period of his sex addiction and resulting divorce from Halle Berry. I love this song and the message it captures – sometimes things will get crazy chaotic before they become calm and that very calm is  embedded in the chaos.

                                       “A hurricane, a hurricane is sometimes the only way to wash away the pain….                                                                    A hurricane, a hurricane is sometimes the only thing that brings you back again”

AS [George Micheal ft. Mary J. Blige]

“As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving… And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May.. Just as hate knows love’s a cure, you can rest your mind assured, that i’ll be loving you always….”

How comforting! It reminds me of my dad.

Daddy’s Home [Usher] – I want a husband just so I can play this song [from our surround sound home system] when I see his car pull up the driveway. He’ll get into the house and I’ll be standing by the bedroom door like – hey daddy – muahahhahahahaa. SideBar: Why is Usher so hot?

Magician [Ice Prince ft Gyptian] – I LOVE THIS SONG!! It was a cold night in liverpool; I was sitting in my room listening to Gidilounge and waiting for my heater to get toasty . No fucks were given on this track in terms of being politically correct – you drop bomb like a Pakistan – and that’s exactly why it rocks. Still one of my faves from Ice Prince.

A Long Walk [Jill Scott] – I found this song after seeing the video for – Getting In The Way – on Channel O; I figured whoever she is, there’s definitely more where that came from. And I was right. Jill Scott is a whoooooooooooooooooooooole lotta woman and I’m here for it all.

Stutter [Joe ft. Mystikal] – If you know me, you know I love Mystikal. I mean, what’s not to love about a rapper who cares about my wellbeing?  – “shake your ass, but watch yourself” – why thank you! I’ll be careful. I still remember the orange car on the dusty lone road and Mystikal losing his mind, I was entertained.

The High Road [Joss Stone] – One my all-time favourite singers. Her voice is sonorous and rich and doesn’t sound like its coming out of a white chic at all. She’s amazing. I have actual original copies of Joss Stone CDs, what does that tell you? I heard this song for the first time at an apple store in Liverpool One where I’d gone to replace my ipad screen. I struck up conversation with one of the store guys, a wide eyed Italian boy all the time wowing about how I couldn’t believe there was a Joss Stone song I didn’t know…being all cute. He took my number and proceeded to text me asking where I lived and whether he could stop by mine after his shift for drinks? I’m like sure we can do drinks but definitely not in my house; So damn forward. He never texted me again.  Black or white, men are men – looking to score with the most minimal effort. FOH!

Tired [Kelly Price] – In the land of hurt/heartbroken/angry music, Kelly Price is the Mayor. She makes great angry music but on this song, she’s not angry, she’s tired and you can actually feel her tiredness come through clearly. I found this song after a breakup. Yea yea… what’s new?   

Battle Scars [Lupe Fiasco ft. Guy Sabastian] – It’s almost 2am, I’m in my bed but obviously not asleep when my friend Hauwa buzzes me thus – have you heard this song? – I go no and she replies – look for it. And I did. And henceforth, I take music recommendations from Hauwa very seriously. It’s on my workout playlist, I kick ass to it many times a week. 

One [U2 ft Mary J. Blige] – Miss Mary finished work on this song okay? She took the bridge and chewed it and spat it out and dared anybody to come have a go and nobody did. What?!!!! I heard it for the first time on a documentary about U2 and frankly I don’t understand why because they should be ashamed to say this song is theirs, Mary owned it. 

By Your Side [Sade] – This song takes me back to Makurdi, those NTA color bars and connecting raindrops on window louvers;  which is weird because it’s not this actual song that NTA used to play, it was –Sweetest Taboo – but it just tells you how the brain makes these associations and connections. Sade is bae with her huge opon. Bae.

Step by Step [Whitney Houston] – I don’t know if I have a favourite Whitney song, but if I do then this one is the permanent second. I want to say it my fave but…. The video is so playful and happy and upbeat and Whitney’s shoulder dance is the best okay? Its one of those songs I grew up hearing around the house a lot, both my parents are huge Whitney fans and they passed it down to me. I accept.

Novacane [Frank Ocean] – Hmmmmnnn.…. A cute boy, ridiculous flirting, a train ride to Manchester, many drinks and…. plays till fade.

At this point, my vision started getting blurry so I had to stop…. And finally get that sleep.

What do you think about my music?

Charlotte

And the birthday goodies just keep rolling in! But who’s complaining? Not me though!

A few weeks before my birthday, I shared a birthday wishlist and in there, I mentioned that I really wanted a Nutribullet. Yesterday, I get a call from a konga dispatch guy and this baby got delivered.

        

She’s so pretty, I could cry!!!!!!

You guys! In the smoothie/juicing world, the Nutribullet is the real deal! This is premium stuff! This is the Kim in the Kardashian household, this is the Enyeama of the Nigerian football team, this is that bra you’ve had for 10 years that’s barely threads by now but still packs your twins like they’re prepubescent. You get my point! LOL. I am so excited about this and I just couldn’t sit still until I had given her a test run [but not after I’ve read the manual cover to back].  I’ve named her Charlotte [not to steal the royal baby’s thunder] but this is my princess. I shall treat her so well, she’ll love me forever. No type of epileptic power situation, NEPA and power surges shall come between us; I shall never be too tired to clean you up after use, I promise you this. Welcome to my life Charlotte, we gon be besties!!!! Just be good to me.

Like I mentioned, I’m that person who will sit down and read the fine print of a product before I use it. Yup! I’m not going to ruin something I love and is probably expensive just because I was too impatient to hold off for a few hours and check all the checkables. So as excited as I was yesterday, I still took all of my evening to read the attached User Guide, Recipe Book and Pocket nutritionist; and i’m glad I did because I noticed that it says you shouldn’t run the motor for more than 1 minute per cycle and that it has an in-built heating detector that forces the thing to stop working if it overheats – meaning, you’d have to wait till it cools down before you can use it again. Important tip because that’s the complaint many nutribullet users have – that it stops working – meaning they probably overworked the poor thing. I ain’t playing with Charlotte like that! LOL

IMG_5524.JPG IMG_5522.JPG IMG_5530.JPG IMG_5531.JPG

IMG_5525.JPG IMG_5528.JPG IMG_5526.JPG

IMG_5527.JPG IMG_5529.JPG

I also saw the it has tons of recipe inspirations in it and a 6 week program that can be helpful for anyone who wants to take up this lifestyle. Awesome.

To make a wholesome smoothie, it needs to have a combo of different stuff that generally falls in 4 broad food categories:

  • Leafy Greens – Kale, Spinach, Spring Greens, Lettuce, Collard Greens etc
  • Fruits – Mango, watermelon, Apples, Banana, Blueberry, Avocado, grapes, pear, peach, oranges, plum, raspberries, strawberries, kiwi, pawpaw,pineapple etc
  • Boosts – Nuts [almonds, cashew, walnuts], Seeds[Chia, flax,Sesame],Super chargers [goji berries, acai berries] , oats, granola etc
  • Lastly, a base – water, milk [almond, soy,lowfat], juice , unsweetended/greek yoghurt, green tea etc.

Now we know all about the shenanigans of NEPA in our dear country Nigeria so it really isn’t realistic and pocket friendly to stock up on quick perishables if they’re going to be thrown out in 3 days; so my tip is to stock on up the stuff that keeps well but only buy fruits & veggies to last a week tops. Like the stash I got on Wednesday should last me a week at least.

  IMG_5508.JPG IMG_5509.JPG IMG_5513.JPG

I always have mangoes & oranges in surplus because they’re in season and Benue is just 3 hours away. Someone is always coming or going. Win!

IMG_5502.JPG  IMG_5503.JPG IMG_5504.JPG  IMG_5519.JPG

The Boost family keeps well so I stock up and some of these have been in my kitchen for more than 6 months.

 IMG_5510.JPG  

Although my preferred smoothie base is water, I haven’t sworn off others. I also add protein powder sometimes in juices for some thickness and filling.

 IMG_5516.JPG IMG_5512.JPG

Soooooooooooooooooo….. I took Charlotte for a spin this morning and made a simple Mango/Spinach/Goji Berries and Oats smoothie. I crushed some ice into it before pureeing; if you must add ice before, its better crushed because it’s easier on the blades. Full ice cubes will spoil the blades in no time.

    

   

Once my smoothie was ready [in less than a minute], I simply added ice cubes into the cup, tossed in a straw and sipped away while imagining that I was on some resort in Bali. Yea, Imagination is everything. Don’t be put off by the colour, it was proper yum. If you aren’t convinced and you know my house, come and i’ll make you some 😀 YUUUUUUMMM!!!!

This is without a doubt, the best smoothie I’ve ever made. Smooth, tasty and super easy to drink – hence the straw. Seamless passage.  There’s a reason the nutribullet is hailed as the DON DADA of smoothie makers. For you busy people, this is what you need. Load the cup before bedtime & leave in the fridge; then whiz for a minute by morning and head out the door while sipping as you go. Invest in one, you’d be glad you did.

Funny Story: I saw a tweet once that said if you’re complaining about the cost of buying healthy food/stuff and refusing to pay then you must be saving the money to pay for your medical bills. LMAO. This fitfam life is not easy/cheap but it’s totally worth it. Truly. Thankfully, I didn’t have to pay for Charlotte. God bless the person who sent me Charlotte.

PS: I hear Konga is having a sale by the 28th of this month. You may want to look out for the deal on this babe.

PPS: I made a video of Charlotte at work but i’m lazy to upload here, so i’d share on my twitter timeline so endeavour to follow me @GBTheBlog and i’ll also be sharing my daily smoothie combos on there henceforth – EVERY MORNING! So if you haven’t followed me on twitter, please do :D. Also, if you’re yet to subscribe to this blog and want to, you’d find the subscribe button on the top right corner of this page. I’d love if you subscribe :*

It’s mid-month now and May Challenge is still going strong. Have you been pushing? If you need some pick-me-up, this is the time. To start and finish strong. Yes you can!

Have a lovely weekend guys and remember to keep moving. Stay active!!! Health is Wealth!

Oh and I’m still receiving gifts, keep ’em coming 😀

Cheers xx
