Ticking off my bucket list — Balloon animals

I have always wanted to be able to make balloon animals as it is such a random skill to have and it seemed like it would hopefully be about my skill level. But those who know me will know that I do struggle with these type of things! The opportunity had never arisen… UNTIL NOW!…

Bucket List- being a tourist in my own town 2

Toby and I are trying to make the effort to do something nice just the two of us at least once a week to try and stop him losing the will to live still writing his Phd! And we (…I) decided that this would also be a good opportunity to tick off things from my…

My budget bucket list

I am now the ripe old age of 26 (urghhh) so I am now in the wrong side of my 20s and I will actually be 27 this year which is dangerously close to 30. I cannot imagine being a 30 year old woman. I am still about 23 at best! Time is really rushing…

My first park run and half marathon training 

I did my first ever park run this morning! I’m trying to push myself because I’m training for a half marathon (really stupid idea! I’m so competitive so when my boss said she was signing up to do one it spurred me to do the same, I didn’t think it through or do any research…

Day 5 National Vegetarian week – Diet coke quorn fakeaway

For day 5 of National vegetarian week I thought I would share this delicious vegetarian version of Diet Cola chicken – sounds so weird but it is one of my favourite meals – the sauce is really bbq-y and nommy. This is syn free if following Slimming World and serves 4. It is also carb…

Vegan treats and snacks under 15 syns

I promised that my next blog post would be more ‘useful’ rather than a general ramble about myself haha so I have compiled a list of mostly ‘accidentally’ vegan treats and snack foods that are under 15 syns – nearly the whole list came from peta.org.uk but I did some additional research and have put…

We’re getting married?!

All of my posts have been food related so far, so as I promised to make this blog about my life in general this is the tale of how I met my amazing fiance Toby. Toby and I met at university, which sounds ever so fancy and proper but it was actually at a very…

Vegetarian meat feast pizza! The Old Bath Arms Frome 

Quite possibly the best vegetarian and vegan pizza in the world!! It was my big bro’s birthday last night so we faced the challenge of deciding where to eat. The challenge comes from the fact that we are a group of 8 vegetarians, two little (ish) people who don’t want anything too fancy, one brother…

A little bit about me

I thought that it’s always nice to kind of know who is writing random stuff on the Internet so here is a bit about me. My name is Tulip (yes that is my actual name, my parents knew I was their last go at parenting so decided to go wild!) I’m 26- I literally don’t…

National Vegetarian Week on Slimming World

It’s National Vegetarian week this week so I thought I would write a post about being vegetarian following Slimming World as it can be a bit difficult with most recipes and books containing mostly meat and fish, especially the magazines, although it is great to see that this has massively improved recently. This has turned…
