Currently #1

Hello and welcome to my first currently! I love reading these so I thought, “what the hell, it won’t hurt to do my own!” so here it is. I hope you enjoy this, I already can’t wait to do another one!

Watching: Recently I’ve been binge watching Teachers again. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve watching this series, but it’s by far one of my favourites! During my undergraduate study, I watched this religiously whilst writing my dissertation. It was just like watching my friends or family on a home video, or sat in the pub with them. It’s just a very mellow show that you can really get into, and fall in love with the characters.

Playing: Since Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer coming out I haven’t stopped playing it! It’s just so addictive and relaxing to play that after a day at work I like to just come home, snuggle into bed with a hot drink and play this until I need to leave my bed to pee or eat. That sounds grosser than it actually is!

Listening: I’ve been listening to Bloodhound Gang LOADS lately and I don’t even know why! I’ve always loved this band but lately I’ve just fallen in love with them more than ever before. I need to get more of their albums soon. I’ve been on the hunt for some more for the past few weeks, but I’ve not really had much luck on that… Doh! I’ve also been playing No Devotions new and first album Permanence. It’s a very nice album for autumn and a relaxing one at that. It’s nice to listen to on the way to work in the morning.

Eating: I haven’t really eaten anything different lately… If anything I’ve been binging on crisps… Not good! Mostly Quavers, and Marmite Walkers crisps. I love Marmite so much… Actually, if I’ve been loving a food this month, it’s Marmite on toast. Can’t go wrong! I’ve also been drinking quite a bit of Lucozade Pink Lemonade at the moment, mostly due to my pole fitness. It helps me during my classes. As well as that I’ve been drinking lots of Ribena too. Yummy!

Wearing: With me officially finishing uni at the start of September my boyfriend finally gave me my Adventure Time Dr Martens boots (can read about those here) and they’re all I’ve been wearing. It has been tough to be honest as everyone who has ever owned a pair of Dr Martens will know how painful they are to break in and trust me mine are proving painful, especially on my one little toe. Ouch! With a big pair of Dr Martens socks, and plenty of plasters they’re now starting to break a little more. I can’t wait for them to be perfect so I can rock them all autumn and winter!

Wanting: I’m really lusting after some Snow Fairy from Lush at the moment. I’m running low on shower gel so it’s an excuse to buy this gorgeous smelling pink stuff. Alongside that I can’t wait for the 101 Dalmatians Vans to be released so I can pick up a pair in time for my holiday. I’ll rock them alongside my Dr Martens! I also want Christmas to hurry up and arrive, as well as pay day so I can start my Christmas shopping. I’ve eyed up loads of gift ideas for my boyfriend now, and I just need the money for them!

Until next time take care all and I’ll see you soon.

Smoothie Sunday – Iced Green Tea Latte

I’m back again this week to bring you another smoothie recipe… Well not a smoothie, but you get what I mean!

Yes, I am still on a health kick and this week it’s been going pretty well… Although I was a little naughty on Thursday and yesterday… But it doesn’t hurt to have a couple of treats.

I went to an Asian supermarket with my boyfriend yesterday in the search of some green tea matcha powder that wouldn’t cause my bank account to explode. Sadly some big brands have got onto the green tea hype and manufactured their own, slapping an over £10 price label onto it. This is frustrating and annoying as I have been drinking green tea for years, before people started drinking it because it’s “fashionable”.

I had heard that Asian supermarkets sell it cheap however, so that’s why we went to see for ourselves. I left with two different brands and it cost me under £10… £7-£8 to be exact. I tried both yesterday, one warm and one cold and they were amazing!

Shop around in some Asian supermarkets like I did before settling on an expensive brand. Teapigs are the number one culprit for ripping people off! Holland & Barret sell some of this too so watch your wallet if you go there. Yes, you want to be healthy, but you don’t want to poor as well. When I was talking to the shop assistant in the supermarket about how much places charge for green tea he couldn’t believe it! “It’s not even worth that much money! It’s just tea!” Damn right!

So, I decided to document the cold version and let you know how you can create your own iced green tea latte at home! Starbucks are known for making this in America, but we haven’t (as of yet) got this in the UK Starbucks stores.

Calories wise this contains 100-200 calories, although when I worked it out on My Fitness Pal it came to 139 calories, which I think is really good! Especially if you fancy a treat.

Ingredients:

1 sachet of green tea powder mixed with some hot water. I did this in a mug and then poured it into the blender. Or you can leave this out to cool down and pop in the fridge for another hour.

Half a cup of milk. I used semi-skimmed but you can use whatever you want.

5-10 ice cubes just to make sure it cools down if you pour it straight into the blender when hot.

If you want it to be a little sweeter drizzle some honey, but I didn’t feel the need to do this.

Then pour into your favourite glass with some more ice and enjoy! I used my Starbucks cup, as you can see.

I really like this as a way to cool down in the summer, as well as something to have alongside my lunch.

And that’s it! It’s such an easy drink to make and it tastes amazing too.

Will you be giving this recipe a go? Please let me know if you do in the comments! If you can think of any yummy smoothies you like, let me know the recipe and I may be able to give them a go.

Until next time, take care all!
