*Review* The Little Cookie Dough Co. 

Just want to make everyone aware I was not asked to do this or given any free products! 

So when I came across this company on instagram I was sold with the fact I could purchase delicious cookies ready to bake at home for 4 syns and they have tasty toppings as well… they were a must purchase and I couldn’t wait for them to arrive! 


Box of the cookies when the arrived 

So I picked a selection of cookies and toppings which ranged from gingerbread cookies, chocolate and mint aero, lemon and whites chocolate and my absolute favourite vanilla and Oreos… dream combo! 

I couldn’t wait to bake the cookies when I got home, I baked 4 different ones and I have to say there are AMAZING! For 4 syns, and a tasty little treat when you are craving sugar they really do hit the spot! I was that excited I baked the rest the next day! 


The amazing baked cookies

Honestly you need to go over to the instagram page and make sure you order some of these cookies! The customer service is second to none as well, fantastic customer service and couldn’t be more helpful when picking flavours and toppings. I honestly will be ordering more this evening as I can’t get enough of these cookies! 

As I’ve said you really need to try these cookies, please head over to @thelittlecookiedoughco instagram page and have a look at the amazing selection of flavours and toppings 

Hope you have enjoyed reading this, I know it isn’t much, but I just wanted to share my joy over finding slimming cookies!

All about me

Mondays Rambles!

Well I haven’t dedicated a lot of time to this recently but I’m back! I want to take the time to make sure I update my blog every week at least three times a week! 

Not a lot has changed I have been in my new role for 3 months and I love love LOVE my new job.  It’s a little like my old job however it’s completely different in the same sentence. I can’t believe I have finally found a job that I am excited and happy to go to in the morning even if it means I’m stuck in traffic! 

In other news I’m spending more time on ME! I had a fabulous holiday away with my boyfriend and I can’t wait to go away with him again. He literally makes me the happiest person and I can’t wait to see him again this weekend.

Sometimes things work out… sometimes things don’t but right now I’m happy, and happy is where I want to be! 

I’m going to pop a review on now and I can’t wait to tell you about some amazing cookies I have had this week!

All about me

London…

What can I say… these last couple of weeks event have been devastating, the world is cruel and we shouldn’t have to live in this world of hate and destruction. 

I love London. I visit often each year and I always feel safe. This will not stop me from visiting as we need to stand strong and fight together. 

I hope everyone in London stays safe, and my love goes out to everyone

Skinny Bakery Delivery 

I am so excited! 

I have been pondering over ordering The Skinny Bakery products for a while but I finally did it last week and it feels like it took forever for them to get here! 


I ordered one of everything as I’ve not tried them before and I have to say first impressions… they look delicious! 


They came packed in the box with cool patches inside to keep them cool! The cakes need to be refrigerated or you can freeze them for up to 6 months! Perfect for those little treat days! 


I unpacked mine straight away and wanted to get tucked in! However I controlled myself and I have popped the Syn Values on all of the packets so I know what I am eating!

The most Syns in the pack is 10.5 Syns… which I can live with for cake! Haha all jokes aside that’s brilliant for some bitesize cake, and if I’m honest I would probably be sharing a pack with someone or only having half a pack! At just over 1.5 Syns per Gingerbread Man I can’t wait to get stuck in! 


I have worked on the 20cals = 1syn principle so they may not be 100% accurate on Syn values but good enough for me! 

I am looking forward to reviewing these products and I know I’m going to fall in love ❤️

P.S all views are my own… I haven’t been paid or asked to do this! 

All about me

I’m still here…

Happy Easter everyone!

So yes I just wanted to say Hello to my Blog again… I’m going on a day out tomorrow so hopefully going  blog about that! I have also got lots stored up in my phone that I was to get out and share with you!

So enjoy the rest of your Easter! Enjoy your chocolate!

*Review* JD seasonings 

First things first… I want to clarify I have not been paid for this and in no way have I been asked to do it, this is something. I want to share as I think JD Seasonings are fabulous! 

So where do I start! I came across JD Seasonings on Instagram a couple of months ago and decided to purchase one of thier kits! 

The reason they appealed to me were, they looked good, they have a huge variety of rubs and meal kits, they have no sugar and finally they are all Slimming World Friendly! Hooray! 

So I started my journey by purchasing the ‘Best Sellers’ collection for £29.99 and here it is 

                   Photo from the Website

And here’s what is in the box: 

2 x Taco

2 X Bolognese

2 X Amtriciana

2 X Chilli con carne

2 X Burger mix

2 X Chips & wedges

2 X Cajun

2 X Rogan Josh

2 X Fajita

2 X Jalfrezi

2 X Steak rub

2 X Tikka masala

Now I haven’t tried them all yet… but the ones I have tried are so tasty and so quick and easy! 

They all come with instructions on what you need for the recipe and how to prepare your meal, plus I’ve even popped the Tikka and the Mild Curry in my slow cooker on a Sunday and they have been beautiful! Hints and tips scan be found on the website also plus in my order I recieved a couple of recipe cards also. 

They also help eliminate having to buy 1000’s of different herbs and spices like I first did to make easy recipes when I joined Slimming World, plus I’ve seen many other people do this as well. 

They service from the company is also fantastic! Next day delivery if you order before 2pm is brilliant, I can’t fault them as mine arrived the day after I ordered and I placed my order at 13:58pm.

Prices start at £1.45 for individual pots and I would highly recommend people purchase some if they are looking for quick and easy meal ideas! Plus SW Friendly! Please find a link to the website below. 

JD Seasonings
I would love to hear feedback from others about what their favourite Seasonings are from JD Seasonings and I will look into reviewing a product next week for you!

Bye for now

My Slimming World Journey

So I thought I would take you through my journey so far… this isn’t my first time on Slimming World but it’s my first time I’ve really got my head in gear and I am doing what I should have been doing 2 years ago! 

Back in 2009 I went to uni… and I wasn’t a size 8 when I went I was a 12, but buy the time I was getting ready to leave I was now a 16 and I was just blind to seeing what I had gained! 

            (From 1st year to nearly final year)

I first joined SW back in 2011/12 I believe and I did ok… but I’ve never really been 120% focused, eating the right amount of speed, recording Syns properly and being honest. 
I was in denial and wanted to blame my weight on anyone else but me… but I needed to take ownership of the fact I needed to be focused and get my head in gear! 

I wanted to be slim for my Graduation, that came and went and I’d lost about 3lbs! I then took my career into HR and started my CIPD… I got my second graduation date…. I’m definitely going to be slim this time I said to myself… and you’ve guessed it… I wasn’t! 


                              (2014-2016)

So this really brings us to present day… January 2017 at tipping the scales at my heaviest of 14st 5lb I needed to take control! 

I went back to SW, joined group faced the weigh in and planned for and meals with in an inch of my life, I made sure I had all the speed food! I varied lunches and Dinners, I prepped for the week on a Sunday (I will do a speperate post on this) and I got my head in gear! 

1st week I lost 5.5lbs and second week I got my half stone award! I was buzzing! My head was in it! I knew why I was doing and I was bloody proud!


And now here we are 7 weeks into SW and my motivation is still there! I feel great! I’ve had compliments and I can’t wait to achieve more of my goals! This week I received my next award and I was so happy to get it! 


I have never been so determined to prove to myself I can do it! I want that shiny sticker saying target member! Plus I also want to do it for me, I can’t wait to go into a shop and reach for those 12’s maybe even 10’s when buying something! 

I document all my food on my instagram so please give me a follow! And I am happy to answer any questions you may have! 

I hope you follow me on my journey and if you have any tips for me as well please pass them on! 

Speak soon!
